What really happened to Carey Logan? After a fire decimates her studio, including the seven billboard-size paintings for her next show, a young, no-name painter is left with an impossible task: recreate her art in three months or ruin her fledgling career. Homeless and desperate, she flees to an exclusive retreat in upstate New York famous for its outrageous revelries and glamorous artists.
But when she arrives, the retreat is a ghost of its former self. No one shares their work. No parties light up the deck. No one speaks of Carey, though her death haunts the cabins and the black lake, lurking beneath the surface like a shipwreck.
Barbara Bourland has written a 'du Maurier-esque' literary thriller about sexual jealousy and artistic legacy, a gorgeously scathing critique of the New York art scene, and a warning about the deadly consequences of stifling female expression.
Fake Like Me is satirical, brilliantly realised, and has a twist you simply won't see coming This gripping tale throws back the curtain on a world of secrets and intrigue.
Gloriously mordant, and just the right amount of rococo, you have to start your summer with this glittering new read. Readers fascinated with the blood, sweat, and tears of creating art will be especially rewarded.
Readers eager for a glimpse into the New York art scene will be enthralled… A haunting, dizzying meditation on identity and the blurred lines between life and art.
The unrelenting threat hovers through the plot and rigidly keeps the reader's head just above water until the end approaches. So drop everything to follow Bourland's brilliant narrator to Pine City, the upstate artist colony with its crumbling camp buildings and secret histories. You will not see the art world-or a woman's place in it-the same way again.
She also nails the creep factor, and her narrator's high tolerance for it, with foreboding signs that the no-name painter isn't totally welcome there, and that there's more to Carey's story.
The deck stacked against her, the narrator tells the glitteringly compelling tale of her fevered summer and wisely reveals meaningful intersections of class, gender, and making art. A must for those with an artistic bent, a sheer reading pleasure for all. When stylish Hillary Whitney dies alone in a locked, windowless conference room at the offices of high-concept magazine RAGEFashion Bookher death is initially ruled an unfortunate side effect of the unrelenting pressure to be thin.
But two months later, a cryptic note in her handwriting ends up in the office of the NYPD and the case is reopened, leading Det. Surrounded by a supporting cast of party girls, Type A narcissists and half-dead socialites, Cat and her colleague Bess Bonner are determined to solve the case and achieve sartorial perfection. But their amateur detective work has disastrous results, and the two ingenues are caught in a web of drugs, sex, lies and moisturizer that changes their lives forever.
Dries van Noten. From Finnish toast-only restaurants to the Kobe-beef hide bikinis and fake feminism, Barbara Bourland makes you laugh out loud, and keep turning the pages.
A deft, smart, and hilarious debut. Highly entertaining! Cline, author of Overdressed.
This bold and wildly entertaining, in-your-face novel signals the arrival of Barbara Bourland as an exciting and savvy new voice. Barbara Bourland is here to show you that fashion is a deadly serious business. Howe, author of The Freedom Broker.

University Press of Mississippi - January 15, Besides Walt Disney, no one seemed more key to the development of animation at the Disney Studios than Ward Kimball — Through Kimball, the studio developed a series of nonfiction animation programs in the s that members of Congress pointed to as paving the way for NASA.
Throughout his life, Kimball was a maverick animator, an artist who helped define the field of American animation, and a visionary who sought to expand the influence of animated films.
Despite the tremendous amount of details most of which are new even to me the material is presented in such a compelling way that one cannot stop reading and going from discovery to discovery. University Press of Mississippi — March 10, While the success of Disneyland is largely credited to Walt and Roy Disney, there was a third, mostly forgotten dynamo instrumental to the development of the park—fast-talking Texan C.
In the early s, the Disney brothers hired Wood and his team to develop a feasibility study for an amusement park Walt wanted to build in southern California. A brilliant project manager, Wood was also a con man of sorts. Previously, he had forged his university diploma.
A smooth-talker drawn to Hollywood, the first general manager of Disneyland valued money over art. As relations soured between Wood and the Disney brothers, Wood found creative ways to increase his income, leveraging his position for personal fame.
Eventually, tensions at the Disney park reached a boiling point, with Walt demanding he be fired. Wood is one of the most captivating untold stories in the history of Hollywood. Pierce interviewed dozens of individuals who enjoyed long careers at the Walt Disney Company as well as dozens of individuals who—like C. Wood—helped develop the park but then left the company for good once the park was finished.
Through much research and many interviews, Three Years in Wonderland offers readers a rare opportunity to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the men and women who built the best-known theme park in the world.
Meticulously researched, it is a revolutionary book which sheds new light on the early days of Disneyland.

Though she would continue to register patents for inventions until late in life, her great breakthrough came early on when she created and marketed the Harlequin eyeglass frame that defined glamour in the late s.
Miranda set out to create a frame that conveyed whimsy, mystery and romance. Once she had set up production and negotiated deals with department stores, she opened an office where she oversaw marketing and distribution, until the next creative project called. In hopes of spending more time on her art, Miranda sold her eyeglass concern and moved west to Los Angeles, where she studied at the Jepson School of Art.
Altina had been a committed student of art all her life, and she chose to go to art school rather than college to study with painters, Rene Bensussan in Paris, and George Grosz at The Art Students League of New York. However, the move away from her business and New York allowed for a new level of commitment to her art. Looking at a photograph of unoccupied chairs by Cartier Bresson, Miranda was inspired to combine the function of the seat with the form of the sitter.
She called these fantastic chairs and benches Chairacters. Miranda continued to paint and sculpt, eventually establishing herself in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she married her fourth husband, painter Celestino Miranda, and lived the final years of her illustrious life.
