From a Broken Bottle Traces of Perfume Still Emanate: Volumes 1-3
From a Broken Bottle Traces of Perfume Still Emanate: Volumes 1-3 collects the first three installments - Bedouin Hornbook, Djbot Baghostus's Run, and Atet A.D. - of Nathaniel Mackey's genre-defying work of fiction. A project that began over thirty years ago, From a Broken Bottle is an epistolary novel that unfolds through N.'s intricate letters to the mysterious Angel of Dust. Unexpected, profound happenings take place as N. delves into music and art and the goings-on of his transmorphic Los Angeles-based jazz ensemble, in which he is a composer and instrumentalist. This triple-set book opens in July 1978 with a dream of a haunting Archie Shepp solo, and closes in September 1982 in a parallactic studio recording session on a glass-bottomed boat borne aloft by the music. The fourth volume of Mackey's novel, Bass Cathedral - also available from New Directions - was chosen by The New York Times as one of 100 Notable Books of 2008. But that it didn't end there......
The Boy Who Followed Ripley
Now part of American film and literary lore, Tom Ripley, "a bisexual psychopath and art forger who murders without remorse when his comforts are threatened" (New York Times Book Review), was Patricia Highsmith's favorite creation. In "The Boy Who Followed Ripley" (1980), Highsmith explores Ripley's bizarrely paternal relationship with a troubled young runaway, whose abduction draws them into Berlin's seamy underworld. More than any other American literary character, Ripley provides "a lens to peer into the sinister machinations of human behavior" (John Freeman, Pittsburgh Gazette)....

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....
