'Aunt Bee,' said Jane, breathing heavily into her soup, 'was Noah a cleverer back-room boy than Ulysses, or was Ulysses a cleverer back-room boy than Noah?'

New Stuff: Otomo Yoshihide

Collecting versions of Hanns Eisler's Über den Selbstmord, and Otomo Yoshihide was my first choice, of course.

First Lines: John D. MacDonald - The Dreadful Lemon Sky

I was in deep sleep, alone aboard my houseboat, alone in the half acre of bed, alone in a sweaty dream of chase, fear, and monstrous predators.

And I got season 2 as well, of course.

New Stuff: Twin Peaks. Season 1 (1990)

Before the new season is shown I'll need to watch the original series.

Giulia Manini

New Stuff: The Killing. Season 2

Since season 1 left us with a giant cliffhanger, we cetainly need to see the continuation of the story.

Molly Bair

New Stuff: Theoder W. Adorno

I do have (and have read) most of his works in various editions, but this is a nice hardcover edition of his main works.

Pour elle (2008)

With no legal means left to him, a high school teacher devises a daring plan to rescue his wrongfully imprisoned wife from jail.

Unusual, above-average thriller that solidly keeps its focus on the plot and its main characters.

Heidi Kråkström

New Stuff: Nebraska

A movie I missed so far and need to watch.

FKA Twigs

New Stuff: Jules Verne

Written in 1863 but first published 131 years later (1994), the novel follows a young man who struggles unsuccessfully to live in a technologically advanced, but culturally backwards world. Often referred to as Verne's "lost novel", the work paints a grim, dystopian view of a technological future civilization.

Hedy Lamarr

New Stuff: Cosmic Web

J. Richard Gott was among the first cosmologists to propose that the structure of our universe is like a sponge made up of clusters of galaxies intricately connected by filaments of galaxies--a magnificent structure now called the "cosmic web" and mapped extensively by teams of astronomers.
