* mark n. An easy victim; a ready subject for the practices of a confidence man, thief, beggar, etc.; a sucker.-Dictionary of American Slang, Thomas Y. Crowell Co., 1960 That´s the long definition of a mark. But there´s a shorter one. It goes: * mark n. Fred Fitch What, you ask, is a Fred Fitch? Well, for one thing, Fred Fitch is the man with the most extensive collection of fake receipts, phony bills of sale, and counterfeit sweepstakes tickets in the Western Hemisphere, and possibly in the entire world. For another thing, Fred Fitch may be the only New York City resident in the twentieth century to buy a money machine. When Barnum said, ´´There´s one born every minute, and two to take him,´´ he didn´t know about Fred Fitch; when Fred Fitch was born, there were two million to take him. Every itinerant grifter, hypester, bunk artist, short-conner, amuser, shearer, short-changer, green-goods worker, pennyweighter, ring dropper, and yentzer to hit New York City considers his trip incomplete until he´s also hit Fred Fitch. He´s sort of the con-man´s version of Go: Pass Fred Fitch, collect two hundred dollars, and move on. What happens to Fred Fitch when his long-lost Uncle Matt dies and leaves Fred three hundred thousand dollars shouldn´t happen to the ball in a pinball machine. Fred Fitch with three hundred thousand dollars is like a mouse with a sack of catnip: He´s likely to attract the wrong kind of attention. Add to this the fact that Uncle Matt was murdered, by person or persons unknown, and that someone now seems determined to murder Fred as well, mix in two daffily charming beauties of totally different types, and you have a perfect setup for the busiestfictional hero since the well-known one-armed paperhanger. As Fred Fitch careers across the New York City landscape-and sometimes skyline-in his meetings with cops, con men, beautiful girls, and (maybe) murderers, he takes on some of the loonier aspects of a Dante without a Virgil.
Smokejumper Conner Young can´t wait to marry the woman who´s stood by him for three years as he fought fires in the forests of the northwest. The only wound in the weekend is the lack of his best man - a brother whose murder is still unsolved. It´s unfinished business that haunts him, keeping him from truly moving on. Liza Beaumont, long time Deep Haven artist is a survivor of a brutal grizzly attack. Struggling with nightmares, she´s not sure she´s ready to join Conner´s world. He´s a hero, yes, but his life is rife with danger and stress and frankly she´s not sure she has the courage to be the wife of a man who may not come home again. When Liza´s wedding invitation unearths a witness in his brother´s murder, Conner´s hope of solving the case is reignited. Suddenly, it´s a choice between showing up to help Liza knit together their perfect day - or tracking down his brother´s killer. But when his investigation finds its way to Deep Haven, and Liza´s life is threatened, there may not be a wedding at all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jackson Nickolay.

This book reconsiders the role of painting during the 1960s and 1970s. The assembled essays examine how ´´painting´´ was present and practiced during this defining period of postmodernism: as an embattled parameter in the evolving antiformalist discourse of the 1970s, as a parallel activity within an artist´s oeuvre, or by being conceptually integrated into another medium. Besides a reconsideration of artists such as Donald Judd, John Baldessari, and Robert Morris, this book provides in-depth analyses of lesser-known artistic positions, for example, those of David Novros, Roy Colmer, Mary Heilmann, and Jo Baer, and of positions whose relation to painting has remained largely unexamined up to now, such as Bruce Conner´s, Walter De Maria´s, and Fred Sandback´s. By treating the activity, the material foundations, and the concept of painting as symptomatic of the post-medium condition, this book reframes the history of postmodernism and provides historical and theoretical approaches for the current discourse on contemporary painting.
Good girls don´t steal. Good girls don´t visit sex shops. Good girls don´t have one-night stands. For Katie Conners, being a good girl just isn´t worth it anymore. It used to mean getting the life she always wanted. But that was before she got dumped and her ex got engaged to his rebound. So, after a bad day and one too many mojitos, Katie starts making a list of things a girl like her would never do, not in a million years.... As a tattoo artist with a monster motorcycle, Chase Trepasso isn´t the kind of guy you bring home to Mom and Dad. And when he finds Katie´s list in a bar, he´s more than happy to help her check off a few items. Especially the ones on the naughtier side.... Katie´s more than tempted by Chase´s offer, as long as they keep things uncomplicated. But as they spend more time together, she may just wind up breaking the most important rule of all: good girls don´t fall in love with bad boys. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nina Alvamar.
