Max Bill´s View of Things:Die gute Form: An Exhibition 1949 Museum für Gestaltung Zürich
In this book, his first full-length nonfiction work, it´s as if Devlin O´Neill at last decides to open a beer and sit down to tell a couple of close friends absolutely everything about the focal subject of his life, the topic they have been curious about for years. He seems to know that what he is about to say will be received as fascinating and extremely helpful and somewhat titillating, in the best sense of the word. Although he does not quite lecture, he speaks with the fine authority and command that is the O´Neill hallmark and not as if he is addressing someone on the level of a naughty boy trying to get a glimpse of a girl´s panties. His elegance of language shines through and sets up his listeners to be on their best behavior in the presence of a gentleman, and then he slips in words and phrases that let them know it is all right to grin and to tingle and to squirm a little - and his listeners are just sure that he knows exactly when they do each of these. Spank Her! is an informative, fast-paced, lighthearted romp through Devlin O´Neill´s more or less real-life world. Part opinion piece, part sociological treatise, part psychobabble mega-essay, this book rips the tearaway knickers off the shadowy realm that is consensual adult spanking in the 21st century with a smile and a wink and a kiss on the bottom. 1.

On The Contexts Of Things Human: An Integrative View Of Brain, Consciousness, And Freedom Of Will:An Integrative View of Brain, Consciousness, and Freedom of Will Ronald J Macgregor
Isabel Dalhousie now has a second child - another boy, Magnus. He comes home with her at the beginning of the book and she discovers that Charlie is far from thrilled. He sees no need for a new baby. In Cat´s delicatessen, Isabel meets a woman with whom she had been at school. This woman, Bea Shand, is known as an enthusiastic match-maker. She is very worried, though, as she has introduced a woman she knows to a plastic surgeon who is now described by another friend as a gold-digger. This other friend reveals that the surgeon has a bad track record: he has been involved with a series of well-off women and has succeeded in separating a number of then from their money. Bea asks Isabel to investigate; she herself tried to warn her friend of the danger she was in but was rebuffed badly. Isabel starts to make enquiries. At first the pattern that emerges confirms her friend´s dire diagnosis, but as things develop it emerges that not only is the surgeon innocent, but he himself is the one in danger! In the meantime, as a sub-plot, Isabel finds that the man who warned her of the surgeon´s proclivities, is taking an interest in her (Isabel). He appears to be smitten by her; she tries to get away from him but discovers that she has inadvertently given Jamie grounds to believe that she (Isabel) is having an affair. This is awkward, but is resolved satisfactorily. Her final conclusion: match-make at one´s peril. Never tell people half-truths for paternalistic reasons. Mind your own business (a lesson that Isabel never seems to learn).
