Strangers on a Train
"In this mesmerizing novel... not to be recommended for the weak-minded and impressionable" (Washington Post), we encounter Guy Haines, a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, and Charles Anthony Bruno, a conniving psychopath who manipulates a chance encounter with Guy into a sadistic plot to swap murders. "Some people are better off dead," says Bruno, "like your wife and my father, for instance." As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy becomes trapped in Patricia Highsmith's perilous world, where under the right circumstances anyone is capable of murder. Still her most iconic novel, Strangers on a Train elicits "the menace that lurks in familiar surroundings" (Time) and the unsettling forces that tremble beneath the surface of everyday life....
The Geography of Lograire
It was completed in the summer of 1968, a few months before he set out from Our Lady of Gethsemani monastery in Kentucky on the Asian journey from which he did not return. The text is as he left it. It lacks that final editing that he would have done in proof, but it is substantially a completed, self-contained work. Lograire, as with William Carlos Williams's Paterson, is first of all a country of the imagination, but it is also a person-Merton himself-for its "geography" is the map, the inner choreography, of his mind. The charting in the poem is his search for self-location: where, and even how, does a man find himself in the geography of all men? Sections of personal experience are set against passages re-imagined from anthropological and historical texts, material that Merton chose for its character of myth to illustrate the general experience of mankind. The myths of Lograire form a mosaic of African legends, Mixtecart motifs and Mayan religious customs, the pantheism of the fanatical Ranters in 17th-century England, the records of an early arctic expedition and of Ibn Battuta, the 14th-century Arab traveler, the Cargo Cults of Melanesia and the Ghost Dances of the American Indians. "A poet," Merton wrote in his prefatory note to Lograire, "spends his life attempting to build or to dream the world in which he lives. But more than that he realizes that this world is at once his and everybody’s. It grows out of a common participation which is nevertheless recorded in authentically personal images. I have without scruple mixed what is my own experience with what is almost everybody else's." Many modern poets have used history and myth in their work; what sets The Geography of Lograire apart is the invention of Merton’s method-his process for elevating fact to the level of myth. It is a complex technique of fractured syntax, multiple meanings; the distortion of dream, irony and parody....
An eye-opening selection of Cumming's more avant-garde poetry and prose. As a poet, Cummings was a pioneer not only in linguistic and typographic inventions, but also in sound and concrete poetry. But his prose is no less experimental; he wrote memoirs, essays, and fiction that are constantly provocative and often radically experimental. To read the avant-garde Cummings is to read a writer who consistently broke with established norms, "Never to rest and never to have: only to grow". To not read the avant-garde Cummings is to not read Cummings....

Trading Price Action Trends: Technical Analysis of Price Charts Bar by Bar for the Serious Trader
Over the course of his career, author Al Brooks, a technical analysis contributor to Futures magazine and an independent trader for more than twenty years, has found a way to capture consistent profits regardless of market direction or economic climate. And now, with his new three-book series - which focuses on how to use price action to trade the markets - Brooks takes you step by step through the entire process.
In order to put his methodology in perspective, Brooks examines an essential array of price action basics and trends in this initial book. Page by page, he skillfully addresses how understanding price action and effectively reading price charts, bar by bar, can help you follow unfolding trends usually initiated by institutions and allow you to profitably piggyback onto their trades by setting up early entries with tight stops. Throughout the book, Brooks focuses primarily on 5 minute candle charts - all of which are created with TradeStation - to illustrate basic principles, but also discusses daily and weekly charts. And since he trades more than just E-mini S&P 500 futures, Brooks also details how price action can be used as the basis for trading stocks, forex, Treasury Note futures, and options....
Remediation: Understanding New Media
Media critics remain captivated by the modernist myth of the new: they assume that digital technologies such as the World Wide Web, virtual reality, and computer graphics must divorce themselves from earlier media for a new set of aesthetic and cultural principles. In this richly illustrated study, Jay David Bolter and Richard Grusin offer a theory of mediation for our digital age that challenges this assumption. They argue that new visual media achieve their cultural significance precisely by paying homage to, rivaling, and refashioning such earlier media as perspective painting, photography, film, and television. They call this process of refashioning "remediation," and they note that earlier media have also refashioned one another: photography remediated painting, film remediated stage production and photography, and television remediated film, vaudeville, and radio....
