Fawcett. 1992. Paperback. Good. Another adventure for curator Chris Norgren, specialist in Renaissance and Baroque at the Seattle Arts Museum (Deceptive Clarity, 1987). Here, Chris i s soon to leave for Bologna to finalize preparations for a show in Seattle called Northerners In Italy. The Bolognese museum and Clara Gozzi, a privat e collector, are lending works to be shipped by the well- established compan y of the Salvatorelli brothers. Both the museum and Clara had been victims of a major theft two years earlier, in the course of which a watchman was k illed. Now, just before Chris's departure, Clara's stolen Rubens has turned up, in a Salvatorelli shipment to Mike Blusher, importer of objets d'art. Chris, arriving in Bologna, meets old friends, a not so old girlfriend, and new enemies. He also finds himself in the middle of a complex train of sca ms and double-crosses that puts his life at risk, but eventually he'll recl aim the lost masterpieces. Chris is cool and likable, the Italians exuberan t and wily, the art history lucid but restrained, and the plot good-natured ly confusing but fun all the way. Elkins at his best., Fawcett, 1992, Berkley. Paperback. 0425187128 6.7 x 4.2 x 0.9 inches From Publishers Weekly This first novel by the Wall Street Journal music critic mixes a noirish, suspense-packed story and sharply defined characters, including Diddio, an affable, spacey music critic. Two years earlier, a lunatic pushed writer/researcher Terry Orr's acclaimed artist wife and their infant son beneath a subway train, leaving Terry and his precocious 10-year-old daughter, Bella, bereft. Impatient with the slow-moving official investigation, Terry took out a private detective's license so he could catch Raymond Montgomery Weisz, the elusive suspect. One strand of this often violent story follows guilt-ridden, obsessive Terry's fruitless search for Weisz. Another concerns his inquiry into the murder of a livery cab driver. When a bomb explodes at a SoHo art gallery and severely injures the owner, Terry takes on that case, too. The investigations lead from an academically challenging private school for African-American children in Harlem to the bars and studios of cutting-edge artists in lower Manhattan. Fusilli is an imaginative, daring writer, creating a pulsating, nightmarish Manhattan where position and appearance are deceptive. Terry and Bella are a closely knit father and daughter rebuilding their lives while exorcising the tragedy in their past. Fusilli contrasts this loving relationship with the horrors of disintegrating families and child prostitution Terry uncovers elsewhere. The separate cases don't so much combine as collide after Terry makes a few intuitive leaps. Readers will anxiously await the sequel to this outstanding debut. (Sept. 10)Forecast: Robert B. Parker, Thomas Perry, Harlan Coben and Nevada Barr supply advance praise, but this first novel will appeal, strongly, to the same readership as that for Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Booklist Fusilli, a music critic for the Wall Street Journal, writes engagingly about the current New York music and art scene, while skewering the pretensions of fellow critics and artsy types. His comic criticisms of the current urban scene, spinning from a domestic story of a father and daughter making life work for each other, give the novel a Jane Austen-like feel. The hero (and, in this novel, the hero actually lives up to the standard of growth and change), Terry Orr, is trying to put together a life for himself and his pre-adolescent (and irritatingly brilliant) daughter after the murders of his wife and infant son. He's arbitrarily plunged into an investigation when, within days, he stumbles on the body of a cab driver and then witnesses an explosion at a SoHo art gallery. The mystery here is secondary to the urban landscape and the compelling drama of a man working toward the light. Connie Fletcher Copyright American Library Association.

Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar cover. Very good condition. Mention a name from a beloved childhood picture bookÑMadeline, Corduroy, Peter Rabbit, Max and his "wild things"Ñand most adults can recollect a bright image, fragments of a story, the timbre of a certain reading voice, the sensation of being held, and best of all being together with someone and enveloped in fantasy. Why do picture book images shown to us as young children linger in our minds? How do picture books shape our lives early on and even later into adulthood? This book takes up such questions. It explores the profound impact of the experience of reading to children. Ellen Handler Spitz reveals how classic picture books transmit psychological wisdom, convey moral lessons, shape tastes, and implant subtle prejudices. Each chapter of the book discusses well-known children's booksÑGoodnight Moon, Babar, Little Black Sambo, to name a fewÑthat deal with a theme of importance to young children. These include bedtime, separation, loss, and death; curiosity, disobedience, and punishment; and identity and self-acceptance. Focusing on the relationship between a child and an adult reader, Spitz explains the notion of "conversational reading" and emphasizes the mutual benefits of dialogue and intimacy. This book not only gives parents, grandparents, teachers, therapists, and scholars a new understanding of the meaning of picture books, it also empowers adults to interpret and choose future cultural experiences for their children. Ellen Handler Spitz is a lecturer in the department of art at Stanford University. She writes and lectures widely on the arts, psychology, and culture. She is also the author of Art and Psyche and Museums of the Mind. "This is a book for each and every adult (professionals and parents) who read to children providing a mutually enriching experience for child and adult. Ellen Handler Spitz has transmitted glowingly and in a wonderfully readable manner her deep and broad understanding of how the adult reading to and looking with younger and older children at books written for and artistically created for children and their readers can be a powerful positive force in the lives of children and their readers (parents).In writing this original, scholarly, highly readable book for children's readers, Ellen Handler Spitz has also enlarged our understanding of how children's capacities for pretending, playing and imagining is nurtured and enhanced in the context of a personal relationship with the reader. She demonstrates this with a literary, psychological analysis of picture story book classics that are suitable for readers and children of all ages.Ellen Handler Spitz is an effective advocate for the practice of adults reading to children. In this book the author describes how this process engages children in reading as an abiding resource, one that helps to organize and consolidate a powerful transcending force, the mutual, warm, trusting bond of children and their parents."ÑAlbert J. Solnit, M.D., senior research scientist at the Child Study Center and Sterling Professor Emeritus Pediatrics and Psychiatry, Yale University "A spellbinding work. With remarkable psychological insight and graceful prose the author evokes the intimate dreamlike world created by parent and young child at bedtime when they read the picture books that have enchanted generations of young children. She shows convincingly how hidden in the familiar stories such as Goodnight Moon, Where the Wild Things Are and many others (which she analyzes in detail) are the anxieties of childhood such as fear of separation and loss or the threat of aggression. Encouraged by the brave and funny characters in the story and soothed by the gentle rise and fall of the parents voice the child falls asleep. These interactions, although brief, often have a lasting influence on the child's imagination and moral development. A truly wondrous look into the complex, passionate inner life of the child. Essential reading for every parent, teacher and everyone who works with or is interested in helping young children."ÑJudith Wallerstein, Ph.D., author of Second Chances Men, Women and Children a decade after Divorce, Founder Center for the Family in Transition "A spellbinding work. With remarkable psychological insight and graceful prose the author evokes the intimate dreamlike world created by parent and young child at bedtime when they read picture books. A truly wondrous look into the complex, passionate inner life of the child that is essential reading for every parent, teacher, and everyone who works with or is interested in helping young children."ÑJudith Wallerstein, Ph.D., founder of the Center for the Family in Transition "This is a splendid addition to the literature about children's booksÑa unique synthesis of key ideas from developmental psychology, from psychoanalytic theory and from literary criticism. Both scholarly and lively, it is to be recommended to psychoanalysts, specialists in children's literature, parents, and all former children. Spitz's postulates are thought provoking and entertaining. They offer fresh insights into old favorites as well as providing an introduction to less well known books, and new ways of approaching all children's picture books."ÑLynn Reiser, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine "Spitz understands just how important it is to think of the picture book as a vehicle for constructing meaning with the child and for developing a relationship between child and adult."ÑMaria Tatar, Harvard University "A work of profound cultural importance, this book addresses the powerful impact of books that shaped our lives early on and that continue to guide us in our adult lives."ÑMaria Tatar, Harvard University "If we really believe 'a picture is worth a thousand words,' and I do, then we all should pay much more attention to picture books and what they print on our memory. This book goes right to the core of the issue."ÑPat Schroeder, president and CEO of the Association of American Publishers and former congresswoman "What a marvelously thought-provoking book! Spitz examines a wide assortment of classic children's picture books that deal with important parenting themes from a psychological viewpoint. . . . The books she examines are children's classics; but, because she is looking at them from a different perspective, the insights she offers on these works, and their authors, are truly refreshing. The ones that I had read, I want to go back and read again. Those that I hadn't read, are ones that I now want to read. . . . In the end one comes away with a new appreciation for both the quality of good picture books and the important role that they play not only in entertaining children, but in providing children and parents guideposts in life's journey."ÑNorman D. Stevens, American Book Collectors of Children's Literature Newsletter "[A] fascinating psycho-social exploration." Ñ Victoria Brownworth, Baltimore Sun "Without jargon or pretension, Spitz celebrates the story and art in [children's] books while discussing their effects in terms of psychology, aesthetics, morality and culture. . . . Even readers who have known about the books forever will find surprising things to think about. Parents and other adults who read aloud to kids, as well as children's literature professionals, will enjoy what Spitz shows about the power of these deceptively simple images and the pleasure of sharing them across generations." ÑBooklist "It was absolutely a pleasure to read this book. . . . Dr. Spitz understands that reading aloud is a relational activity that involves shared experiences between generations. The author does a fantastic job of describing the joy involved in this experience."ÑMeredith Sargent, Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic "Responding to characters and contexts in text and illustrations, Spitz has found a treasure trove of psychological implications in picture books. . . . Concerned parents, and surely devoted grandparents, will find fresh challenges here to help them think more about picture books' inscribed cultural values and, too often, stereotypes. Teachers and librarians will want to analyze Spitz's assumptions and examples. General readers; undergraduate and graduate students; professionals." ÑChoice "As much a call to action as it is an analysis."ÑJennifer K. Ruark, Chronicle of Higher Education "Because of her faith in the imagination, her hesitations, and her excellent taste, Spitz's selection and analysis of books in four picture-book subjectsÑbedtime, loss, anger, self-acceptanceÑare strong and provide a good model for choosing among contemporary offerings."ÑDaria Donnelly, Commonweal "Ellen Handler Spitz probes the complex aesthetic and psychoanalytic affects transmitted by the words and images of children's books. . . . Spitz writes in a clear and engaging fashion, one that is readable even to nonacademics."ÑLinda M. Pavonetti, Journal of Children's Literature "I can think of no better introduction and guide to young children's literature than Inside Picture Books. Drawing from her training in both psychology and art, Ellen Handler Spitz presents a beautifully written treatise on the content and form of successful picture books, and the ways in which these books tap into the imagination of the child. . . . In summary, Inside Picture Books provides a special window of insight into how classic and popular children's books connect with children. It is a book that is intended to teach parents about the complexity of themes that, at first blush, appear to be presented simply. It is a commentary on the power of the shared experience in imagination between parent-reader and child-listener. It is a book to be enjoyed by adults who have grown up enjoying picture books and a tutorial on how to look more deeply into what the child hears and sees. For developmental and behavioral specialists, it provides a new and fascinating slant on the child's use of imagination in the service of grown in understanding."ÑJ. Lane Tanner, Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics "There is something fine and rare in Ms. Spitz's book, with its interpretations of picture books ranging from Margaret Wise Brown's 'Goodnight Moon' to Marjorie Flack's 'Story About Ping.' . . . Ms. Spitz speaks to her readers not as an academic but as a practiced read-aloud, knowing the relationship between storyteller and listener."ÑEdward Rothstein, New York Times "[A] sensitive, concentrated study. . . . [Spitz] stresses the pleasure of reading with children, its special intimacies and esthetic satisfactions of rhythm and reverie, sadness and humor. She draws attention to the pedagogical necessities of following child listeners' understanding, of listening to what they ask and feel, and guiding them, and she rejoices in picture books' power to develop 'inner possibilities.' . . . Spitz communicates vividly her pleasure in her material and speaks up vibrantly for the importance, complexity and place of shared reading and picture books in young lives and their future."ÑMarina Warner, New York Times Book Review "With a background in psychology and children's literature, Spitz accessibly explains the significance of bedtime classics such as Goodnight Moon and Bedtime for Frances. . . . Spitz offers interesting observations and anecdotal information on how children project their own experiences and emotions into picture book characters, from mischievous Max in Where the Wild Things Are to the curious protagonist of The Poky Little Puppy. . . . Throughout, too, she conveys her own delight in picture books and the wisdom of sharing books with children."ÑNancy Pate, Orlando Sentinel "What an impressive and rich work! The insight is awesome and I know this book will be able to help parents understand their children so much better than so many of the 'how to' books that are so prevalent on the parent education market. With every page of this book I was compelled to read on, with the feeling I can't wait to share what I'm learning with parents everywhere. If you enjoy reading to your children, I know you will enjoy reading this book."ÑBarbara Burrows, Parenting Magazine "[A] touchingly sensitive and wisdom-filled book. I recommend it wholeheartedly to parents and grandparents, to teachers and writers, to psychoanalysts and other mental health professionals, to all those who are interested in children and how to assisted them in negotiating the mine-laden path of growing up."ÑMartin A. Silverman, Psychoanalytic Quarterly "[A] thought-provoking examination. . . . [Spitz's] book is a must-read for any serious student of children's literature as well as that core group of parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians, and others who are actively engaged in raising children. Provocative, well-written, scholarly without being dry or pedantic, Spitz's text makes a compelling case for the power of art and literature, and the responsibility that accompanies such power, particularly when it relates to children."ÑPublishers Weekly "Through lucid analyses of text and illustrations in beloved children's books, the author provides a thoughtful guide to choosing and using classic books to read aloud with young children. . . . This graceful book is a wonderful resource, full of insights for parents, as well as for child care personnel."ÑAlice Sterling Honig, Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health "[A] brilliant study. . . . [Spitz] organizes her study by the major psychological themes that picture books address--fear of separation (usually first experienced at bedtime, death and loss, disobedience and punishment, and self-acceptance. Along the way, she provides glimpses at the books' larger cultural contexts and her research into children's responses. . . . Inside Picture Books is a rich, multilayered discussion of a powerful art form that is relevant to us all."ÑJohn Hammond, San Antonio Express-News "[Spitz] has assembled for study some of the most mesmerizing and enduring children's books of the last century. . . .

When Margaret Redmond, a young Toronto woman, sickens and then dies she is glad to leave a brief and lonely life that has been ruined by her deep love-hatred for her uncle. But death is only a beginning for Margaret: it proves to be the gateway to a search for a secret buried deep in her forgotten past. In the course of her quest she encounters Elizabeth, a sea-captain's wife in sixteenth century England; Zawumatec, a slave in the long houses of the Iroquois; Phoenix, a Chinese lady of the Tang dynasty; and Tirigan, a warrior prince in ancient Sumer. Through these encounters Margaret gradually learns the true source of her hatred for her uncle - a hatred almost as old as civilization. This astonishing novel represents fantasy at its best, and seems bound to widen the audience for Ruth Nichols' books to inclue all those who admire Tolkien or Cabell, or the other great fantasists.", any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - Against the sweeping backdrop of western Sicily, seasoned reporter Frank Viviano pieces together his own harrowing family legacy of betrayal and redemption - and the truth behind a murder mystery and conspiracy of silence that spans four generations. His seven-year quest is haunted, from cryptic beginning to stunning end, by an ancient Sicilian proverb, Lu sangu lava lu sangu, ‘Blood washes blood’: the torrent of unforgiving vengeance that flows from an unforgivable offense.’ ‘More than a century ago, Viviano’s namesake and great-great grandfather, Francesco Viviano, was shot to death at a lonely rural crossroad in Sicily. He had been a revolutionary and a thief, a legendary bandit who traveled by night in the robes of a friar. Sicilians called him ‘the Monk.’’ ‘Six months before his death in 1993, Viviano’s ninety-six-year-old grandfather whispered to him the name of the Monk’s killer: ‘Domenico Valenti.’ A name he had never heard before. A name that meant nothing to him.’ ‘Pursued by the demons of his own rootless life as a foreign correspondent, Viviano journeys to his family’s ancestral village in Sicily. He sets out to unlock the mystery that killed the Monk and drove his family to America. But from his first day there, he is confronted by a maze of other interlocked mysteries, where everything - names, identities, motives - falls under the same enigmatic veil as his grandfather’s final words to him.’ ‘The search eventually carries Viviano deep into the shadowly Sicilian netherworld, to the cataclysmic origins of the Mafia and the labyrinth of codes, blood feuds, family loyalties, and impenetrable silences that have defined the island’s tortured history for a thousand years. Until past and present finally merge into a single story with a shattering climax. . ISBN: 0671041584., Doubleday, 1995. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine.

Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar cover. Very good condition. Mention a name from a beloved childhood picture bookÑMadeline, Corduroy, Peter Rabbit, Max and his "wild things"Ñand most adults can recollect a bright image, fragments of a story, the timbre of a certain reading voice, the sensation of being held, and best of all being together with someone and enveloped in fantasy. Why do picture book images shown to us as young children linger in our minds? How do picture books shape our lives early on and even later into adulthood? This book takes up such questions. It explores the profound impact of the experience of reading to children. Ellen Handler Spitz reveals how classic picture books transmit psychological wisdom, convey moral lessons, shape tastes, and implant subtle prejudices. Each chapter of the book discusses well-known children's booksÑGoodnight Moon, Babar, Little Black Sambo, to name a fewÑthat deal with a theme of importance to young children. These include bedtime, separation, loss, and death; curiosity, disobedience, and punishment; and identity and self-acceptance. Focusing on the relationship between a child and an adult reader, Spitz explains the notion of "conversational reading" and emphasizes the mutual benefits of dialogue and intimacy. This book not only gives parents, grandparents, teachers, therapists, and scholars a new understanding of the meaning of picture books, it also empowers adults to interpret and choose future cultural experiences for their children. Ellen Handler Spitz is a lecturer in the department of art at Stanford University. She writes and lectures widely on the arts, psychology, and culture. She is also the author of Art and Psyche and Museums of the Mind. "This is a book for each and every adult (professionals and parents) who read to children providing a mutually enriching experience for child and adult. Ellen Handler Spitz has transmitted glowingly and in a wonderfully readable manner her deep and broad understanding of how the adult reading to and looking with younger and older children at books written for and artistically created for children and their readers can be a powerful positive force in the lives of children and their readers (parents).In writing this original, scholarly, highly readable book for children's readers, Ellen Handler Spitz has also enlarged our understanding of how children's capacities for pretending, playing and imagining is nurtured and enhanced in the context of a personal relationship with the reader. She demonstrates this with a literary, psychological analysis of picture story book classics that are suitable for readers and children of all ages.Ellen Handler Spitz is an effective advocate for the practice of adults reading to children. In this book the author describes how this process engages children in reading as an abiding resource, one that helps to organize and consolidate a powerful transcending force, the mutual, warm, trusting bond of children and their parents."ÑAlbert J. Solnit, M.D., senior research scientist at the Child Study Center and Sterling Professor Emeritus Pediatrics and Psychiatry, Yale University "A spellbinding work. With remarkable psychological insight and graceful prose the author evokes the intimate dreamlike world created by parent and young child at bedtime when they read the picture books that have enchanted generations of young children. She shows convincingly how hidden in the familiar stories such as Goodnight Moon, Where the Wild Things Are and many others (which she analyzes in detail) are the anxieties of childhood such as fear of separation and loss or the threat of aggression. Encouraged by the brave and funny characters in the story and soothed by the gentle rise and fall of the parents voice the child falls asleep. These interactions, although brief, often have a lasting influence on the child's imagination and moral development. A truly wondrous look into the complex, passionate inner life of the child. Essential reading for every parent, teacher and everyone who works with or is interested in helping young children."ÑJudith Wallerstein, Ph.D., author of Second Chances Men, Women and Children a decade after Divorce, Founder Center for the Family in Transition "A spellbinding work. With remarkable psychological insight and graceful prose the author evokes the intimate dreamlike world created by parent and young child at bedtime when they read picture books. A truly wondrous look into the complex, passionate inner life of the child that is essential reading for every parent, teacher, and everyone who works with or is interested in helping young children."ÑJudith Wallerstein, Ph.D., founder of the Center for the Family in Transition "This is a splendid addition to the literature about children's booksÑa unique synthesis of key ideas from developmental psychology, from psychoanalytic theory and from literary criticism. Both scholarly and lively, it is to be recommended to psychoanalysts, specialists in children's literature, parents, and all former children. Spitz's postulates are thought provoking and entertaining. They offer fresh insights into old favorites as well as providing an introduction to less well known books, and new ways of approaching all children's picture books."ÑLynn Reiser, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine "Spitz understands just how important it is to think of the picture book as a vehicle for constructing meaning with the child and for developing a relationship between child and adult."ÑMaria Tatar, Harvard University "A work of profound cultural importance, this book addresses the powerful impact of books that shaped our lives early on and that continue to guide us in our adult lives."ÑMaria Tatar, Harvard University "If we really believe 'a picture is worth a thousand words,' and I do, then we all should pay much more attention to picture books and what they print on our memory. This book goes right to the core of the issue."ÑPat Schroeder, president and CEO of the Association of American Publishers and former congresswoman "What a marvelously thought-provoking book! Spitz examines a wide assortment of classic children's picture books that deal with important parenting themes from a psychological viewpoint. . . . The books she examines are children's classics; but, because she is looking at them from a different perspective, the insights she offers on these works, and their authors, are truly refreshing. The ones that I had read, I want to go back and read again. Those that I hadn't read, are ones that I now want to read. . . . In the end one comes away with a new appreciation for both the quality of good picture books and the important role that they play not only in entertaining children, but in providing children and parents guideposts in life's journey."ÑNorman D. Stevens, American Book Collectors of Children's Literature Newsletter "[A] fascinating psycho-social exploration." Ñ Victoria Brownworth, Baltimore Sun "Without jargon or pretension, Spitz celebrates the story and art in [children's] books while discussing their effects in terms of psychology, aesthetics, morality and culture. . . . Even readers who have known about the books forever will find surprising things to think about. Parents and other adults who read aloud to kids, as well as children's literature professionals, will enjoy what Spitz shows about the power of these deceptively simple images and the pleasure of sharing them across generations." ÑBooklist "It was absolutely a pleasure to read this book. . . . Dr. Spitz understands that reading aloud is a relational activity that involves shared experiences between generations. The author does a fantastic job of describing the joy involved in this experience."ÑMeredith Sargent, Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic "Responding to characters and contexts in text and illustrations, Spitz has found a treasure trove of psychological implications in picture books. . . . Concerned parents, and surely devoted grandparents, will find fresh challenges here to help them think more about picture books' inscribed cultural values and, too often, stereotypes. Teachers and librarians will want to analyze Spitz's assumptions and examples. General readers; undergraduate and graduate students; professionals." ÑChoice "As much a call to action as it is an analysis."ÑJennifer K. Ruark, Chronicle of Higher Education "Because of her faith in the imagination, her hesitations, and her excellent taste, Spitz's selection and analysis of books in four picture-book subjectsÑbedtime, loss, anger, self-acceptanceÑare strong and provide a good model for choosing among contemporary offerings."ÑDaria Donnelly, Commonweal "Ellen Handler Spitz probes the complex aesthetic and psychoanalytic affects transmitted by the words and images of children's books. . . .
