• Description : A visual feast on 'the extravagance of the bohemian', the homes in this collection are a testament to personal style that readers will find inspiring and influential. Since the 1970s, Oberto Gili has been one of the most prolific lenses in the world of editorial photography, his lush images of fashion and interiors gracing the pages of House & Garden, Town & Country, and Vogue. This collection of his signature interior photography spans this significant career. Gili's passion for the grand, bold, and quirky granted him access to the inner sanctums of both high society and the bohemian demimonde. The selection includes numerous homes of French and Italian nobility, lords of the European and American creative class, and the photographer's own remarkable Piedmont farmhouse. This volume of Gili's best work is a sumptuous and voyeuristic study of his most arresting interiors and emphasizes the adventurous nature of both the homes and their occupants. These homes exude in turns grandeur, whimsy, and tranquility, each interior imbued with the unique style of its occupants. The book features more than 40 homes throughout the world--from New York penthouses and artist lofts to seventeenth-century Italian villas and country homes in Morocco--each personally selected by Gili and shown in full. Each house is accompanied by a short descriptive text by Susanna Salk. Sprinkled throughout the book are 10 short texts by selected homeowners (Isabella Rossellini, Mary Randolph Carter, Muriel Brandolini, Marella Caracciolo, Paul Fortune, and Beatrice Monti, among others) describing a personal history of the individual spaces.

• Description : "Against the backdrop of America's heartland, this stunning epic drama follows the Kusek family over fifty years, through relocation from metropolis to prairie, the panic of Communism and McCarthyism, a smear campaign, a dramatic trial, and, ultimately, murder. On Christmas Eve, 1985, Jo Kusek discovers her brother and his family have been savagely attacked. The wife has been killed, father and son barely alive. How did this happen? Cal, Jo's father, was a World War II pilot and an attorney. Betsy, Jo's mother, was a worker's advocate. In 1950, they escaped the political hysteria of New York City, and relocated to a close-knit town in South Dakota. Cal became a cattleman, Betsy a nurse. Jo and her younger brother, Lance, were inseparable. A seat in the State Assembly became available and Cal jumped at the chance to serve the community that had taken them in. Life was full and rewarding. Things change when Cal runs for US Senate. His campaign threatens the local triumvirate of power that will do anything to stop him. The FBI investigates Betsy, and a youthful dalliance with the Communist Party surfaces to haunt the Kuseks and divide the town. Driven by fear and hate, the Kuseks' neighbors condemn them as enemies and spies. Their American Dream falls apart overnight and becomes an agonizing nightmare. And although they are vindicated in a successful libel lawsuit, the story doesn't end there: years later, Lance Kusek, his wife and son, are violently assaulted, and the mystery then unfolds as to who could have committed this coldblooded act. Is it the result of the events decades earlier? As her loved ones hover between life and death, Jo Kusek becomes our witness to one of the most brutal periods in American history"-- [...] by Publisher : 'Knopf'
