♥ Book Title : Murder City: The Bloody History of Chicago in the Twenties
☯ Full Synopsis : "Michael Lesy’s disturbingly satisfying account of Chicago in the 1920s—the epicenter of murder in America—could be fiction, but it’s not. “Things began as they usually did: Someone shot someone else.” So begins a chapter of this sharp, fearless collection from a master storyteller. Revisiting seventeen Chicago murder cases—including that of Belva and Beulah, two murderesses whose trials inspired the musical Chicago—Michael Lesy captures an extraordinary moment in American history, bringing to life a city where newspapers scrambled to cover the latest mayhem. Just as Lesy’s book Wisconsin Death Trip subverted the accepted notion of the Gay Nineties, so Murder City exposes the tragedy of the Jazz Age and the tortured individuals who may be the progenitors of our modern age."Article| Michael Lesy| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Ewerton Death Trip
☯ Full Synopsis : "The cursed village of Ewerton, Wisconsin is one of the great "bad places" in weird literature: a town that's just thoroughly bad to the bone--evil and dark and full of human suffering. And now A. R. Morlan returns to the scene of her classic horror novels, The Amulet and Dark Journey, with 25 horrific tales of men and women pushed beyond the limits of endurance. As Ardath Mayhar says: "The horror she evokes is not so much occult as uniquely human. The worst of human traits are her stock in trade. The hints of otherworldly elements are used in just the right proportions to make one shiver." And Robert Reginald states: "She drives the stake of horror right through the center of your quivering heart!"Article| A.R. Morlan| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Writing on Water
☯ Full Synopsis : "Writing on Water is an attempt to grasp the phenomenon of sound in prayer, that is: a meaning in sounds and soundscapes, and a musical essence in the act of praying. The impetus for the book was the author’s fieldwork among traditional Jews during the era of communism in Budapest and Prague. In that era the Jewish religion and Jewishness in general were supressed; the rituals were semi-secret and became inward-turning. The book is a witness to these communities and their rituals, but it goes beyond documentation. The uniqueness of the sounds of the rituals compelled the author to try to comprehend how melodies and soundscapes became the sustaining/protective environment, as well as the vehicle, for the expression of a world-orientation – in a situation where open discourse was inconceivable. The book is based on extensive interviews, musical recordings, photographs and scholarly analyses. It is unique in its choice of communities, its wealth of original documents, and in its novel interpretation of sound. Writing on Water is creative non-fiction. The presentation is evocative and poetic, but nevertheless, it transmits knowledge. Where this potential is understood, the book can aid research and serve in courses in philosophy, religion, music, ethnomusicology, anthropology, aesthetics, Jewish studies, folklore, oral history, and performance studies. At the same time it could be read as belle lettre."Article| Judit Niran Frigyesi| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Laramie Death Trip
☯ Full Synopsis : "This thesis unpacks media representations of death, violence, and pain using the example of Matthew Shepard. Michael Lesy's Wisconsin Death Trip is used as a lens through which to reexamine the highly publicized murder of Matthew Shepard. Inspired by Lesy's book, this thesis not only analyzes media representations of the macabre but also demonstrates how images and the visual imagery employed in written text are used to tell a complicated graphic story; how the media have chosen to represent death and violence; and what outcomes the repetition of these images of death have on remembering and memorializing tragic events."Article| Helis Sikk| Statement ..."
