Cathedral of the Pines presents Gregory Crewdson's first new body of work in over five years. The series marks a return to Crewdson's classic style of storytelling via the single image, using light and color to create newly intimate, psychologically charged imagery. This body of work marks a time of transition for the artist, including the end of his marriage and a retreat from New York to a remote home and studio in western Massachusetts--a period of time during which Crewdson chose to remain socially withdrawn, instead committing to daily, long-distance, open-water swims and cross-country skiing on wooded paths. Cathedral of the Pines is named after one of these trails, deep in the forests of Becket, Massachusetts, the site where he found the inspiration to make these new pictures. It was there that he felt darkness lift, experienced a reconnection with his artistic process, and moved into a period of renewal and intense creative productivity. The photographs are accompanied by an essay by Alexander Nemerov, who addresses the work in relation to the American past, focusing in particular on the way the images draw space and time down to ceremonial points, in which "all that ever happened in these places seems crystallized in his tableaux, as if the quiet melancholy of Crewdson's scenes gathered the unruly sorrows and other little-guessed feelings of people long-gone who once stood on those spots."

A definitive and comprehensive survey of the work of one of America's best known and most acclaimed photographers. Renowned for his melancholic, dramatic, and painterly images of small-town America, Gregory Crewdson has evolved over a near thirty-year career into one of the world's most acclaimed and recognizable photographers. With a meticulous approach that has been likened to that of a film director, Crewdson typically works with a large crew and extremely technical sets to achieve a remarkably deep, atmospheric, and textured perspective. The mood of his images is unique, with a palette of twilights and mid-tones that complements a range of locations and models that create a vision of America at once familiar and haunting, bizarre and reassuring--his vision seems in line with those of Edward Hopper and David Lynch. Collected here together for the first time are every image from each of his many series of work, presented in chronological sequence from his earliest work and the little-seen black-and-white images of Fireflies to more recent masterpieces such as Beneath the Roses and Sanctuary. With a running narrative of short stories written specially to accompany each series by fellow Brooklynite Jonathan Lethem, an introduction by the Chief Curator of the Guggenheim Nancy Spector, and an interview between Melissa Harris and the photographer focusing on his unique process and elaborate techniques, this is the definitive monograph on the work of a true master of contemporary photography.

What can the performance of a single play on one specific night tell us about the world this event inhabited so briefly? Alexander Nemerov takes a performance of Macbeth in Washington, DC on October 17, 1863—with Abraham Lincoln in attendance—to explore this question and illuminate American art, politics, technology, and life as it was being lived. Nemerov’s inspiration is Wallace Stevens and his poem "Anecdote of the Jar," in which a single object organizes the wilderness around it in the consciousness of the poet. For Nemerov, that evening’s performance of Macbeth reached across the tragedy of civil war to acknowledge the horrors and emptiness of a world it tried and ultimately failed to change.

In the summer of 1996, Gregory Crewdson spent two solitary months at his family's cabin in Becket, Massachusetts. Using both small- and medium-format cameras, he obsessively photographed the fireflies that came alive at dusk each evening. Crewdson was drawn to the flickering lights, in part, by the underlying impossibility of capturing their elusive beauty in pictures. This luxurious volume, featuring 61 full-page tritone reproductions, calls to mind many of the hallmarks of Crewdson's oeuvre, from the sense of wonder in the nocturnal landscape, to the focus on light as a narrative event, to the fascination with nature as a psychological mystery. Although consistent in terms of their subject matter, these photographs demonstrate a wide scope of visual expression ranging from almost pure abstraction to more idyllic representations of the natural landscape.

A bold and strikingly original new work from one of America's greatest living poets Alice Notley is considered by many to be among the most outstanding of living American poets. Notley's work has always been highly narrative, and her new book mixes short lyrics with long, expansive lines of poetry that often take the form of prose sentences, in an effort "to change writing completely." The title piece, a folksong-like lament, makes a unified tale out of many stories of many people; the middle section, "The Black Trailor," is a compilation of noir fictions and reflections; while the shorter poems of "Hemostatic" range from tough lyrics to sung dramas. Full of curative power, music, and the possibility of transformation, In the Pines is a genre- bending book from one of our most innovative writers.

"Now he had time to think. Tadayoshi Koga, 19 years old, had just crash-landed his Mitsubishi Zero airplane on the remote Aleutian island of Akutan. It was June 1942, six months after Pearl Harbor..." Summoning Pearl Harbor is famed art historian Alexander Nemerov's mesmerizing display of linguistic force that redefines remembering. How do words make the past appear? In what way does the historian summon bygone events? What is this kind of remembering, and for whom do we recall the dead, or the past? In this highly original meditation on the past, Nemerov delves into what it means to recall a significant event--Pearl Harbor--and how descriptions of images can summon it back to life. Beginning with the photo album of a former Japanese kamikaze pilot, which is reproduced in this volume, Nemerov transports the reader into a different world through his engagement with the photographs and the construction of a narrative around them. Through its lyrical prose, Summoning Pearl Harbor expands what we traditionally associate with ekphrastic writing. The kind of writing that can enliven a work of art is also the kind of writing that makes the past appear in vivid color and deep feeling. In the end, this timely piece of writing opens onto fundamental questions about how we communicate with each other, and how the past continues to live in our collective consciousness, not merely as facts but as stories that shape us. Here, Nemerov's constant awareness of the power of language to make an experience--seen or remembered--become real reminds us that great ekphrastic writing is at the heart of every effective description.

I stood up and looked in the window again, but the rooms were still empty—empty of furniture, empty of life, empty of love, empty of everything I was looking for and couldn't find. The summer of 1971 held promise. Ginny was looking forward to spending time with her friends, landing her first boyfriend, and practicing with new makeup. But the reality of her family turns a summer vacation into a spiraling tunnel of endless misery. Between a drunk father, a distracted mother, and a brother whose footsteps ignite fear worse than the devil, Ginny must reason her way out of childhood and find safe ground in the chilling first steps toward adulthood. Her only safe haven is the woods behind her house where she spends endless hours alone, hiding from the destruction within her house. But when she is followed into the woods by territorial teenage boys, her safe haven is torn from her faltering grip—a memory she won't easily put aside. A Cathedral of Cedars is the compelling story of a young teen fighting for her childhood while losing herself to a dysfunctional family too intent on maintaining some façade of normalcy to provide the love and nurturing care that a young girl needs. Virginia Johnston-Dodds leaves readers desperate to love Ginny and determined to make right the wrongs of their own family sorrows inA Cathedral of Cedars.'Virginia Dodds has done an extraordinary job at reminiscing about the summer that changed her life...an engaging and unforgettable story that I could not put down. I would recommend this book to everyone.' -Dr. Sarah Hawthorn ND Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine
