A Time to Love and a Time to DieA Time to Love and a Time to Die

And it was an opportunity, too, to rid the world of a murderer who in an hour's time would in all likelihood be torturing to death some terrified, defenseless human being. Graeber felt his hands sweating. Suddenly he was very hot.

From the quintessential author of wartime Germany, A Time to Love and a Time to Die echoes the harrowing insights of his masterpiece All Quiet on the Western Front. After two years at the Russian front, Ernst Graeber finally receives three weeks’ leave. But since leaves have been canceled before, he decides not to write his parents, fearing he would just raise their hopes. Then, when Graeber arrives home, he finds his house bombed to ruin and his parents nowhere in sight. Nobody knows if they are dead or alive. As his leave draws to a close, Graeber reaches out to Elisabeth, a childhood friend. Like him, she is imprisoned in a world she did not create. But in a time of war, love seems a world away. And sometimes, temporary comfort can lead to something unexpected and redeeming. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review

Douglas Sirk (Claus Detler Sierck) was born in Hamburg, Germany, in 1900. He made nine films before fleeing Nazi Germany, eventually coming to America. His best-known films, made during the 1950s--all of them melodramas--were Magnificent Obsession, All That Heaven Allows, The Tarnished Angels, Written on the Wind, and Imitation of Life (made in 1958, released in 1959). Because of the special stamp he put on his melodramas, Sirk's best works transcend the constraints of their genre. In them, he both exemplified and critiqued postwar, conservative, materialistic life and its false value systems. There is much in Sirk, particularly in Imitation of Life, that is of interest to us today. The time seems to be right for a new look at the film, its reception amidst scandal over the affairs of its star--Lana Turner--the relationships between its mothers and daughters, the tensions between its men and its women, the friendships between its black and white women, and the ambiguous, controversial approach of Sirk to his material. This volume includes the complete continuity script of the film, critical commentary and published reviews, interviews with the director, and a filmography and bibliography. It also includes an excellent introduction by Lucy Fischer.

Max Anderson is it detective with a small Police Department that also handled county calls. When he was at the university where he was also a professor hoping to drum up new talent for the police force he received a phone call from his captain stating that he had a new case that he had to work immediately. Max already knew that this wasn't going to be good. He was known as one of the best in the area and possibly one of the most upcoming detectives in the entire country. He handled and consulted on cases from police precincts all over the United states. So when he was called in personally he knew that something was going on that wasn't going to be good. When he finally got to the scene he realized that the case was going to be a lot harder than he thought. It was the grandchild of his captain who was the victim. She had been murdered without hesitation in one of the most gruesome crime scenes Max had ever been a part of. You didn't necessarily focus on all of those details he wanted to find who did this to one of their own. The case itself was actually easy to come across the details that he needed to find to be able to close it. It was just putting the pieces together that was going to be the difficult thing for him. However within two days or less than 48 hours he was able to complete the case and have an arrest. Who they actually arrested though was an absolute surprise to everybody.

When death strikes words often fail us. This book helps honor ones for whom the alphabet seems inadequate. The first eulogy the author ever heard was for her aunt when she was 12; appalled that the minister knew so little about the deceased he never once mentioned her by name, she became determined that such thoughtlessness and lack of recognition would never happen to anyone she loved in the future. Consequently, she wrote eulogies for her infant son, her mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, father, and various friends and relatives upon their deaths. In this book, she has made it possible to mix-and-match by classifying the entries alphabetically and by occupation or title. Blending humor, scripture, and classic literature, this book provides a full eulogy or seeds for thought so readers can create their own.

Christianity is dying--in parts of the world it is already dead. Yet there is hope, but it will require radical surgery that many are unprepared to accept as necessary. The vast behemoth that calls itself institutional Christianity must die if the Jesus Movement upon which it was founded is to live. The essential message of the Christian gospel is that death leads to new life. Is Christianity ready to embrace this truth and die so that it can live?

In 1895, Louis Lumière supposedly said that cinema is "an invention without a future." James Naremore uses this legendary remark as a starting point for a meditation on the so-called death of cinema in the digital age, and as a way of introducing a wide-ranging series of his essays on movies past and present. These essays include discussions of authorship, adaptation, and acting; commentaries on Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Vincente Minnelli, John Huston, and Stanley Kubrick; and reviews of more recent work by non-Hollywood directors Pedro Costa, Abbas Kiarostami, Raúl Ruiz, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Important themes recur: the relations between modernity, modernism, and postmodernism; the changing mediascape and death of older technologies; and the need for robust critical writing in an era when print journalism is waning and the humanities are devalued. The book concludes with essays on four major American film critics: James Agee, Manny Farber, Andrew Sarris, and Jonathan Rosenbaum.
