Flashback van SJ Watson is een psychologische thriller met een razend tempo, van de auteur van de wereldwijde bestseller Voor ik ga slapen. Flashback van SJ Watson speelt zich af in Blackwood Bay. Een Britse kustplaats waar nooit iets gebeurt. Toch? Ooit was Blackwood Bay een drukbezocht kustplaatsje. Maar nu, geplaagd door teruglopende toeristenaantallen en economische malaise, is het nog maar een schim van wat het was. Het is een spookstadje geworden, en daarmee de perfecte locatie voor filmmaker Alex om haar nieuwe documentaire te schieten. Maar de hechte dorpsgemeenschap is achterdochtig over haar motieven. Want er gebeurt nooit wat in hun dorp, dus waarom zou ze hier filmen? Of is er iets? Weet zij meer dan ze zegt, en wie is ze eigenlijk? Wederom gebruikt SJ Watson het psychologische spel waarmee hij met Voor ik ga slapen miljoenen mensen aan de bank gekluisterd hield en hij combineert dit op geraffineerde wijze met het claustrofobische gevoel van een kleine dorpsgemeenschap waar iedereen elkaar kent.

Langzaam wordt bodyguard Will Shannon wakker in het huis van zijn werkgever, farmaceuticagigant Greg Vincent. Hij vergaat van de pijn en kan zich niet herinneren wat er is gebeurd. Terwijl hij door de onheilspellend stille woning strompelt, doet hij een lugubere ontdekking: Vincent ligt dood in zijn bed. Hij is door het hoofd geschoten, en Wills pistool ligt naast hem... Zodra hij de politie hoort naderen, slaat Will op de vlucht naar de enige persoon die hij kan vertrouwen: zijn vroegere collega en geliefde, Cait Malone. Samen gaan ze op zoek naar de dader. Al snel blijkt dat ze een geduchte tegenstander hebben: een getuige die ze op het spoor komen, treffen ze vermoord aan. Cait wordt in haar eigen huis belaagd, en als Will daarom besluit zich aan te geven, wordt er op weg naar de politie een aanslag op hém gepleegd en moet hij opnieuw vluchten. Dan krijgt hij een flashback waarin het gezicht voorbijflitst van een man die hij op de avond van de moord heeft gezien. Misschien kan deze man zijn onschuld bewijzen... Maar hoe vindt hij hem?

If you could relive your childhood, would you? What if you had no choice? On the thirty-fifth anniversary of his parents' mysterious drowning, Jack Koryan returns to his family beach cottage. During a swim, Jack is attacked by a school of rare jellyfish whose toxic stings put him in a coma for three years. When he awakens, he finds that the jellyfish toxin has left him with an extraordinary memory that impresses his doctors. This discovery is complicated by flashbacks: some, pleasant childhood vignettes, others, confusing flashes of violence that leave him quaking in horror. Jack wonders if he's losing his mind, but that fear is dispelled by Rene Ballard, a pharmacologist working on the world's first cure for Alzheimer's Disease. She wants to test Jack because the basis of the drug is the very jellyfish toxin that sent Jack into a coma. And, while several test patients have miraculously regained functionality, others are also experiencing dangerous flashback seizures. Ballard's revelation sets Jack on a quest to discover what is happening to him. He and Rene uncover a sinister pattern of lies and deceit that has left behind a trail of bodies, and several elderly patients stuck in a past that they cannot emerge from--or don't want to.

From a leading art historian, a provocative exploration of the intersection of art, politics, and historical memory in 1960s Italy. Flashback, Eclipse is a groundbreaking study of 1960s Italian art and its troubled but also resourceful relation to the history and politics of the first part of the twentieth century and the aftermath of World War II. Most analyses have treated the 1960s in Italy as the decade of “presentism” par excellence, a political decade but one liberated from history. Romy Golan, however, makes the counterargument that 1960s Italian artists did not forget Italian and European history but rather reimagined it in oblique form. Her book identifies and explores this imaginary through two forms of nonlinear and decidedly nonpresentist forms of temporality—the flashback and the eclipse. In view of the photographic and filmic nature of these two concepts, the book’s analysis is largely mediated by black-and-white images culled from art, design, and architecture magazines, photo books, film stills, and exhibition documentation. The book begins in Turin with Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Mirror Paintings; moves on to Campo urbano, a one-day event in the city of Como; and ends with the Vitalità del Negativo exhibition in Rome. What is being recalled and at other moments occluded are not only episodes of Italian nationalism and Fascism but also various liberatory moments of political and cultural resistance. The book’s main protagonists are, in order of appearance, artists Michelangelo Pistoletto and Giosetta Fioroni, photographer Ugo Mulas, Ettore Sottsass (as critic rather than designer), graphic designer Bruno Munari, curators Luciano Caramel and Achille Bonito Oliva, architect Piero Sartogo, Carla Lonzi (as artist as much as critic), filmmakers Michelangelo Antonioni and Bernardo Bertolucci, and, in flashback among the departed, painter Felice Casorati, writer Massimo Bontempelli, art historian Aby Warburg, architect Giuseppe Terragni, and Ren
This book was written in prison at one of the lowest times of my life. It is a book of sorrow triumphs and tragedies from the depths of my heart and the recesses of my soul. The majority are in poems that came to mind at that time.The beginning of the story is about the fragment of a man who threw his life away hiding in the confines of his mind under the tragedies of addictions.
Robert John Christo, popularly known as Bob Christo, was born in 1938 in Sydney, Australia. After completing his civil engineering in Sydney, he took on projects which involved supporting the military supply lines of the South Vietnamese army and working as construction supervisor on the film sets of Apocalypse Now. Led by his instincts, Christo zealously followed one aspiration after another: chasing after a lost spy ship, running an escort service, modelling for African beer, singing in rock concerts, and so on.
On February 12, 1991, all the schools in the small town of Monroe, Georgia were the targets of simultaneous terrorist attacks. Over 40 people were killed. Yet the high school suffered no casualties thanks to the actions of the students’ favorite teacher, Daniel Tillman, who single-handedly dispatched the attackers. After the attacks, word begins leaking out that Tillman had spent seven years in Vietnam as part of the ultra-secret SOG Special Forces team. The teachers, administration, and some townspeople demand his dismissal because they no longer “feel comfortable” around him. The story focuses on how he is prodded into fighting for his future and how, along the way, he comes to terms with his past. He is aided and sustained by the love and support of his students, the advice of an aged uncle, the interventions of a pesky CNN reporter, and the help of one of the state’s most powerful politicians who has vivid memories of the teacher from twenty years earlier.

Cut off from civilisation, can Anna weather the coming storm? Flashback is the eleventh riveting Anna Pigeon novel from acclaimed crime writer Nevada Barr. Perfect for fans of Sue Grafton and Paul Doiron. 'What lifts the Anna Pigeon novels far above most other contemporary amateur sleuth mysteries is Barr's exquisite writing - it swoops, it soars, sails then catches you unawares beneath the heart and takes your breath away' - Cleveland Plain Dealer Escaping a proposal of marriage from Sheriff Paul Davidson, Anna Pigeon takes a post as a temporary supervisory ranger on remote Garden Key in Dry Tortugas National Park, a grouping of tiny islands in a natural harbour seventy miles off Key West. This island paradise has secrets it would keep, not just in the present, but in shadows from its gritty past, when it served as a prison during the Civil War, and for the Lincoln assassination conspirators afterwards. Here, on this last lick of the United States, in a giant crumbling fortress, Anna has little company besides the occasional sunburned tourist or unruly shrimper. When her sister, Molly, sends her a packet of letters from a great-great-aunt who lived at the fort with her husband, a career soldier, Anna's fantasy is filled with visions of this long-ago time. But a mysterious boat explosion and the discovery of unidentifiable body parts keeps Anna anchored to the present, and she soon finds crimes of yesterday and today closing in on her. A tangled web that was woven before she arrived threatens her sanity and her life. Cut off from the mainland by miles of water, poor phone service, and sketchy radio contact, Anna must find answers and weather a storm that rivals the hurricanes for which the islands are famous. What readers are saying about Flashback: 'You'll be gripping the edge of your seat with tension whilst you read... I couldn't keep my nose out of it till I'd read it in two days!' 'I was captivated by the roller coaster storytelling' 'This [book] was fabulous..

The flashback is a crucial moment in a film narrative, one that captures the cinematic expression of memory, and history. This author’s wide-ranging account of this single device reveals it to be an important way of creating cinematic meaning. Taking as her subject all of film history, the author traces out the history of the flashback, illuminating that history through structuralist narrative theory, psychoanalytic theories of subjectivity, and theories of ideology. From the American silent film era and the European and Japanese avant-garde of the twenties, from film noir and the psychological melodrama of the forties and fifties to 1980s art and Third World cinema, the flashback has interrogated time and memory, making it a nexus for ideology, representations of the psyche, and shifting cultural attitudes.
