Paul Lippmann

Nocturnes, literally music for the night, is a delightfully impressionistic investigation into everything that is not known, and perhaps can never be known, about dreams. Rather than espousing yet another strategy of dream interpretation, Lippmann proffers a naturalistic approach appreciative of the playful, complex, even zany creativity embodied in dreams. He urges us, that is, to apprehend dreams on their own terms, in a manner that enables patients actually to experience the unconscious in its radical difference from waking thought. Lippmann delivers on his agenda lightly, with a sense of humor and practicality that will engage lay readers as well as analysts and therapists. He takes up questions of general interest that challenge us to reorient our thinking about dreams: How do children learn about dreams and their telling? Why are most dreams forgotten? How may we understand dreams about sleeping and waking, even dreams about dreaming? And he reengages issues of perennial interest to analytic therapists: dream disguise, dream forgetting, the "companionship" of dreams, the neurotic dream expert, and the therapist's management of his or her own anxiety when patients report their dreams. "Oh, I had a dream last night," the patient remembers. Too often, observes Lippmann, this remark signals the beginning of an unfortunate struggle, as the patient is called on to relate something that changes when it is put into words, the analyst is put on the spot to come up with an interpretation, and both are asked to extract something immediately useful - and lately, cost effective - from something that partakes of magic and mystery. How silly this ritual is, Lippmann argues, and how alien to the nature of the dream itself. After reading Nocturnes, no clinician, from the novice to the most senior, will hear the words "Oh, I had a dream last night" in quite the same way.

John Connolly

Take his hand and follow him into the darkness . . .

Kazuo Ishiguro

From the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go In Nocturnes, Kazuo Ishiguro explores the ideas of love, music and the passing of time. From the piazzas of Italy to the 'hush-hush floor' of an exclusive Hollywood hotel, the characters we encounter range from young dreamers to café musicians to faded stars, all of them at some moment of reckoning. Gentle, intimate and witty, this quintet is marked by a haunting theme: the struggle to keep alive a sense of life's romance, even as one gets older, relationships founder and youthful hope recedes.

Kazuo Ishiguro

From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and author of the Booker Prize–winning novel The Remains of the Day comes an inspired sequence of stories as affecting as it is beautiful. With the clarity and precision that have become his trademarks, Kazuo Ishiguro interlocks five short pieces of fiction to create a world that resonates with emotion, heartbreak, and humor. Here is a fragile, once famous singer, turning his back on the one thing he loves; a music junky with little else to offer his friends but opinion; a songwriter who inadvertently breaks up a marriage; a jazz musician who thinks the answer to his career lies in changing his physical appearance; and a young cellist whose tutor has devised a remarkable way to foster his talent. For each, music is a central part of their lives and, in one way or another, delivers them to an epiphany.

John Connolly

In his first collection of short fiction, New York Times bestselling author John Connolly offers a selection of dark, daring, and utterly haunting tales. Here are lost lovers and missing children, predatory demons, and vengeful ghosts. In "The New Daughter," a father comes to suspect that a burial mound on his land hides something very ancient, and very much alive; in "The Underbury Witches," a pair of London detectives find themselves battling a particularly female evil in a town culled of its menfolk. And finally, private detective Charlie Parker returns in the long novella "The Reflecting Eye," in which the photograph of an unknown girl turns up in the mailbox of an abandoned house once occupied by an infamous killer. This discovery forces Parker to confront the possibility that the house is not as empty as it appears, and that something has been waiting in the darkness for its chance to kill again. In these stories, Connolly ratchets up the tension to almost unbearable -- and irresistible -- levels. Nocturnes is a deliciously chilling collection from "one of the best thriller writers we have" (Harlan Coben).

Kazuo Ishiguro

In ‘Nocturnes’ speelt Kazuo Ishiguro met ideeën over liefde, muziek en het verstrijken van de tijd. De lezer wordt meegevoerd van piazza’s in Italië naar de Malvern Hills in Engeland, van een flat in Londen naar een exclusief hotel in Hollywood, en ontmoet de meest uiteenlopende personages, van jonge dromers tot cafémuzikanten en uitgerangeerde sterren. De vijf verhalen zijn geestig, intiem en ingetogen en hebben als steeds terugkerend thema: onze behoefte aan romantiek, die ondanks het verstrijken der jaren en het uiteenvallen van relaties altijd blijft bestaan. Kazuo Ishiguro is een van de meest bekroonde en gelauwerde auteurs uit het Engels taalgebied. In 2017 werd zijn oeuvre bekroond met de Nobelprijs voor de Literatuur. ‘In romans met een grote emotionele zeggingskracht legt Ishiguro onze wankele verbintenis met de wereld bloot.’ – Nobelprijscomité 2017

T. R. Stingley

Do you believe in eternal love? Is there an experience available to the human species that might prove that love truly is eternal? What if you lost someone 50 years ago, or even 500 years ago, and your grief was still as fresh as the day it happened? Could the longevity of grief be a clue to the infinite nature of love? Isaac Bloom survived the Holocaust and has wandered the world like a kind of ghost for 50 years. Now, while writing his last travel article before retirement, he has stumbled upon something sinister, and disturbingly-familiar, that threatens to exhume memories he thought long since buried. The forbidding stranger at the center of this mystery offers Isaac a difficult choice, and one that he has failed at in the past; whether to embrace love or fear. Isaac must follow the stranger down dark labyrinths of time in the hopes of finally answering the question of eternal love.

Joan Rothfuss

A prominent figure in the Twin Cities art scene, Chris Faust marks the essence of the changing Midwestern landscape by documenting common scenes in an uncommon way. Known for his spectacular panoramic work, Faust is also increasingly admired for his unique night photographs, where he quietly unveils a world we never noticed was there and when the darkest hours evoke a mood of mystery and surrealism. The palette of light and shadow heightens our senses by revealing the stillness and ambiguities of the landscape. Nocturnes, a beautiful collection of more than seventy tritone photographs, is a visual record of our world as few ever see it: during the nighttime hours. Emphasizing the passage of time as well as the necessity for change, the images reflect our disappearing rural terrain, abandoned urban streets, and aging industrial spaces, recalling aspects of our culture that are quickly fading into the past. With an affinity for certain old-world practices and tools, Faust works just with ambient light and uses no digital or electronic technology—only classic darkroom processing—allowing all the subtle textures and tones to emerge in his work. Faust’s photographs of the Midwest are shot in a panoramic format with wide, detailed images—spectacular in both their artistry and documentary impact. Chris Faust, a resident of St. Paul, is one of Minnesota’s finest photographers. His award-winning images are widely collected and exhibited throughout the region and the country. Joan Rothfuss is a writer and art historian who was curator of the Walker Art Center for more than seventeen years. She was coeditor of the Walker collection catalogue Bits & Pieces Put Together to Present a Semblance of a Whole.

Georges Banu

La nuit est au jour ce que le dos est au visage. Elle réclame au peintre ou à l'homme de théâtre de se détourner afin d'accéder à l'autre côté, rebelle au règne conventionnel du visage et du jour car la nuit, comme le dit Goethe, est la " face étrangère du jour ". La nuit est un envers et un contraire. Elle entre clans la problématique de la contradiction, de l'opposition, de la perdition. Alors que le jour établit l'homme dans un ordre social, la nuit place l'être du côté de l'essence. Elle l'entraîne au-delà d'une identité bien déterminée, dans l'informel et le mouvant. Il se trouve plongé au cœur de la nuit qui ne bat pas au même rythme pour tous car la nuit dissocie les êtres. S'engager sur le chemin de la nuit, c'est se laisser emporter par l'excès, par l'oubli des normes en vigueur, des interdits et des contraintes car, selon Marguerite Duras, " La nuit tout est plus vrai. " La nuit, c'est le jour vu de dos.
