This collection of funny quotes brings together the wit and bitchiness of a range of famous people from Muhammad Ali to Oscar Wilde, from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s time to the present day. Whether you favour Billy Wilder’s “He’s got Van Gogh’s ear for music”, Clive James’ pithy description of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s physique or the dry, understated humour of William Whitelaw, there’s plenty here to make you snigger to yourself.
From the mountains of Utah to the seaside underbelly of Venice, California come two brothers on a voyage of holy revenge and realization. Ross hunts the rapist of his one true love, Lizzy. His younger brother, Brentwood, is unknowingly along for the ride. Culminating with three murders committed on Christmas Eve, this is a dark, contemporary story of a young man who destroys what he loves most. Van Gogh s Ear is the soul-rending account of love between two brothers. It is the narrative of their last few months together in a world where love tears apart and the lessons of the mind are rarely those of the heart. David Nash writes with a blade. Van Gogh s Ear is the kind of novel which is instantly engrossing and disturbing, and it leaves us in awe. Ross is devil and angel in a dark, high octane cosmos, and I could not look away as he spun out his revenge. This is fierce and fine writing, and Mr. Nash shows us again the potency of fiction. Ron Carlson, author of The Signal What a dark, flame-lit, searing cauldron of love and desire David Nash has illuminated here. Van Gogh s Ear astounds in its emotional ferocity, its wide-eyed look at the nature of torment, the emotional hell we each create for ourselves and those we love: and always, at hand, the possibility for redemption. Love, that which would save us all, each to each. This is biblical literature at its most contemporary: Venice, California; sand and the board-walk and beach; the dark side of the music scene and those who so populate written in a prose, line by line, that aches to be received, its cadences melodically fit and thundering within the dark well of these lives where the heart so insistently drums. Only David Nash could write this novel. Like a friend, a chance intersection in the dark night of a soul, this book will change your life. Leonard Cohen writes, Forget your perfect offering / There is a crack, a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in. Van Gogh s Ear is that light. T. M. McNally,
Writing by Ear examines the explicit articulation of listening-in-writing found in the work of Brazilian novelist Clarice Lispector. The terms "writing by ear," the "aural novel," and "echopoetics" rethink fiction as a poetics of listening to the world.
A powerful poem for peace by one of the great voices of contemporary literature, Maya Angelou, seizes the soul; Margaret Atwood's insightful, often amusing essay on poetics inspires; Beat legend Carolyn Cassady's intriguing new prose piece explores the energies that create and sustain all life; a high-speed letter from Beat icon Neal Cassady sweeps one away with his thoughts on intellect and the arts; acclaimed renaissance man Leonard Cohen's poem excites both the imagination and emotions; James Dean's hard-hitting poem gives a brutal glimpse into the acidic mixture of love and hate the legendary actor had for his father (a scan of Dean's actual poem appears with photos from a private collection); Bangladesh poet Taslima Nasrin, who had to flee her country following death threats by Islamic fanatics, contributed a poem which reveals much through the rape of two young sisters who are ordered by a judge to be whipped in public for speaking out against the man who raped them; Sue Russell shatters the Hollywood portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the movie MONSTER with her probing essay. There's also Sonia Sanchez's startling poem about a mother torn between love for her 7-year-old daughter and addiction to crack; Irish poet Eabhan Ni Shuileabhain's intense journey into the minds of the main people involved in executing a criminal at the time of execution; and even more powerful work by Tony Curtis, Joyce Carol Oates, C. K. Williams, Yoko Ono, Norman Mailer, Daisy Zamora, J. T. LeRoy, Joanne Kyger, John Gilmore, Tess Gallagher, Richard Kostelanetz, Marc Smith, Alice Notley, Billy Collins, Aram Saroyan, Diane di Prima, John Updike, in total 91 great talents. After reading this landmark anthology, you'll feel as if you'd lived intensely in the skins of many different people in different parts of the world. Highly recommended as a rich resource for teachers and a library basic.
Wong Sir's Trip:Netherlands Van Gogh Museum The Van Gogh Museum is located in the Museum Square in the south of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. When completed in 1973, the museum was opened by Queen Juliana of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In 1999, a new wing designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa was added, with an irregular oval shape. In 2015, a glass curtain was added to two buildings, which is the entrance to the museum. The Van Gogh Museum receives 1.5 million visitors each year. In the eyes of European tourists, the Van Gogh Museum ranks first among the 18 most famous art museums in the world. The Van Gogh Museum is small,with more than 500 visitors per square meter, the Louvre is 140, and the Tate Modern in London is 171. In 2017, the number of visitors reached a record 2.26 million,becoming the most visited museum in the Netherlands, the huge flow of people caused trouble for the Van Gogh Museum. The museum has taken a series of measures to reduce the number of tourists, mainly by increasing fares. Between 2017 and 2018, ticket prices increased by € 1 to € 18, the number of tourists decreased to 2.16 million. The number will increase to 19 Euros in 2019, the number of tourists will continue to decline. Van Gogh was determined to become an artist when he was 27 years old. In just 10 years of creative career, he left 860 paintings, more than 1,200 drawings, sketches in letters, watercolors and other works on paper and 820 letters. Due to the lack of money to invite models, Van Gogh painted a lot of self-portraits, the most famous of which is "Self-Portrait after Cutting Ear". Van Gogh's work was kept by Van Gogh's younger brother Dio and later sold to the Dutch government for millions of dollars. The condition is the establishment of the "Van Gogh Foundation", which is controlled by the Van Gogh family, and a "Van Gogh Museum" in Amsterdam. Yellow is Van Gogh's representative color. Van Gogh's self-portrait is hung in the center of the entire yellow

Vincent van Gogh continues to fascinate more than a century after his death in 1890. Yet how much of what is commonly known about this world-renowned artist is accurate? Though he left thousands of works and a trove of letters, the definitive Van Gogh remains elusive. Was he a madman who painted his greatest pieces in a passionate fury or a lifelong student of art, literature and science who carefully planned each composition? Was he a loner dedicated only to his craft or an active collaborator with his contemporaries? Why is he best known for self-mutilation and “The Starry Night”? This book has biographers, scriptwriters, lyricists, actors, museum curators and tour guides, among others, presenting diverse interpretations of his life and work, creating a mythic persona that may, in fact, help us in the search for the real Van Gogh.
This volume brings Continental philosophical interpretations of Van Gogh into dialogue with one another to explore how for Van Gogh, art places human beings in their world, and yet in other ways displaces them, not allowing them to belong to that world.
As a five year old I encountered a picture of a young man in a rakish hat and a yellow coat, on the wall of a large classroom. There was something instantly intriguing about the image, but it was also puzzling because it represented neither politician nor prince, the usual fare for Australian school decorations. I was eventually told that this was a reproduction of a painting, the artist was Vincent van Gogh, and that the subject was some young Frenchman. On special days we assembled in that room and during the next several years I found myself gazing beyond visiting speakers at the fellow in the yellow jacket. It was almost another fifty years before I felt properly conversant with the portrait and realized that van Gogh's subject, Armand Roulin, was seventeen at the time ofthe original painting and had died at seventy-four during my schoolboy contemplations. In the interim my enjoyment of the works of the Impressionists and Post Impressionists had grown and I occasionally ran into the name of Dr. Gachet, Vincent's last attending physician, in books and catalog essays. The doctor was my entree to the overlapping charms of medical and art histories. In 1987 I had the good fortune to participate as a biochemist in the centenary celebration of the Pasteur Institut in Paris.
