Music, Performance, and the Realities of Film: Shared Concert Experiences in Screen Fiction

Music, Performance, and the Realities of Film: Shared Concert Experiences in Screen Fiction


This book examines the relationship between narrative film and reality, as seen through the lens of on-screen classical concert performance. By investigating these scenes, wherein the performance of music is foregrounded in the narrative, Winters uncovers how concert performance reflexively articulates music’s importance to the ontology of film. The book asserts that narrative film of a variety of aesthetic approaches and traditions is no mere copy of everyday reality, but constitutes its own filmic reality, and that the music heard in a film’s underscore plays an important role in distinguishing film reality from the everyday. As a result, concert scenes are examined as sites for provocative interactions between these two realities, in which real-world musicians appear in fictional narratives, and an audience s suspension of disbelief is problematised. In blurring the musical experiences of onscreen observers and participants, these concert scenes also allegorize music s role in creating a shared subjectivity between film audience and character, and prompt Winters to propose a radically new vision of music s role in narrative cinema wherein musical underscore becomes part of a shared audio-visual space that may be just as accessible to the characters as the music they encounter in scenes of concert performance.

Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer

Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer


A story collection that proves less is more.The stories in this collection run the gamut from playful to tragic, conservative to experimental, but they all have one thing in common: they are no more than 25 words long. Robert Swartwood was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s possibly apocryphal six-word story—”For Sale: baby shoes, never worn”—to foster the writing of these incredibly short-short stories. He termed them “hint fiction” because the few chosen words suggest a larger, more complex chain of events. Spare and evocative, these stories prove that a brilliantly honed narrative can be as startling and powerful as a story of traditional length. The 125 gemlike stories in this collection come from such best-selling and award-winning authors as Joyce Carol Oates, Ha Jin, Peter Straub, and James Frey, as well as emerging writers.

Five Finger Fiction

Five Finger Fiction


Lila O’Farrell barely has a voice of her own in her large, extended Irish Catholic family. She tries humor, subversion, and even a British accent. Her kleptomania is the only thing that gives her comfort. Lila takes jewelry, tongue depressors, even a friend’s brassiere. Breaking the law and casting aside social mores are nothing, though, compared to challenging Lynette Nolan O’Farrell’s authority.
