Erika is certain that her days of having a friend are numbered, and she is determined to make the friendship last as long as possible. To do that, she believes, she must not let Mercedes learn about all her dogs. But before she is done, Mercedes will surprise her--and Erika will surprise herself.

Harlem has captivated the imagination of writers, artists, intellectuals, and politicians around the world since the early decades of this century. Rhapsodies in Black: Art of the Harlem Renaissance examines the cultural reawakening of Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s as a key moment in twentieth-century art history, one that transcended regional and racial boundaries. Published to coincide with the exhibition that opens in England and travels to the United States, this catalog reflects the Harlem Renaissance's impressive range of art forms—literature, music, dance, theater, painting, sculpture, photography, film, and graphic design. The participants included not only artists based in New York, but also those from other parts of the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe. Richard J. Powell and David A. Bailey present selected works that focus on six themes: Representing "The New Negro;" Another Modernism; Blues, Jazz, and the Performative Paradigm; The Cult of the Primitive; Africa: Inheritance and Seizure; and Jacob Lawrence's Toussaint L'Ouverture series. The visual arts from 1919 to 1938 included in the book suggest the extraordinary vibrancy of the time when Harlem was a metaphor for modernity. In spite of the importance of the Harlem Renaissance to early twentieth-century American culture and to the artistic climate of "Jazz Age" Paris and Weimar Berlin, few art exhibitions have been devoted exclusively to the subject. Rhapsodies in Black will be welcomed for its unique presentation of this creative time.
Jonathan Sniper è sempre stato alla ricerca dello scoop del secolo, ma non avrebbe mai immaginato di finirci in mezzo. Tutto precipita una notte, quando si ritrova in mezzo alla strada con una pistola in tasca e i vestiti sporchi di sangue non suo. Non sa come sia arrivato lì: l’ultima cosa che ricorda è che stava aiutando uno sconosciuto a sfuggire a dei malviventi. Un uomo che, nei suoi ultimi istanti, gli ha inoculato qualcosa. Da quel momento, il buio. Adesso è lui a ritrovarsi braccato, non solo dalla Polizia, ma anche da misteriosi individui che cercano di catturarlo con ogni mezzo per recuperare ciò che gli è stato affidato senza il suo consenso. Qualcosa che ora gli sussurra nella testa, a volte consigliandolo, a volte ostacolandolo, addirittura prendendo il comando del suo corpo: una coscienza estranea, artificiale, che rivendica la sua presenza, ripetendo "Io sono Jonathan". Tra vuoti di memoria, inseguimenti, inganni e alleati insperati, Jonathan dovrà capire cosa nasconde dentro di sé prima ancora di svelare i misteri che lo circondano. E scoprirà a sue spese che, se da un lato un’intelligenza artificiale non conosce le emozioni, dall'altro la natura umana, sotto la patina dell’etica e della morale, è la più brutale che esista al mondo.
