A triple bill of the 'Look Who's Talking' films. In 'Look Who's Talking' (1989), Mollie (Kirstie Alley) is pregnant by Albert (George Segal), a married man who won't leave his wife. When her contractions start, she leaps into a taxi, driven by James (John Travolta) who accompanies her not only to the hospital but into the delivery room. Mollie gives birth to a healthy boy, Mikey (voice of Bruce Willis), and soon James is baby-sitting for her while she goes in search of a suitable father. The sequel, 'Look Who's Talking Too' (1990), picks up where the first film left off, with James and Mollie having another baby. Meanwhile, Mikey deals with growing up, the intrusion of a new baby sister Julie (voice of Roseanne Barr) and that daunting rite of passage - toilet training. In 'Look Who's Talking Now' (1993), Mollie is fired from her job, and takes a position in a toy department as a Christmas elf and James lands a job as a private pilot for the vampy socialite Samantha (Lysette Anthony). When the local street dog Rocks (voice of Danny DeVito) is taken home for son Mikey (David Gallagher), Samantha also turns up with her pampered poodle Daphne (voice of Diane Keaton) who Julie (Tabitha Lupien) instantly takes to. The dogs take an instant dislike to each other, but the parents are too tied up with their own problems to notice. When Mollie discovers that Samantha has whisked her husband off for a secret rendezvous on Christmas Eve, she determines to intercept them with kids and dogs in tow.

The Metamorphosis & Other Tales is a collection of six fictional stories that includes The Metamorphosis, The Magic Carpet and The Groovy Wallpaper, Butterfly, The Stranger, Customer Disservice and The Boston Stranger. Interweaving postmodernist narrative forms of intertextuality with realistic fiction, the author weaves a sumptuously rich tapestry of life contained within stories of the outsider, many of which might draw comparisons with the modernism of Kafka and Camus, though he undoubtedly still retains his definitely distinct artistic stylistic imprint.
The Magic Red Carpet and the Groovy Wallpaper is the first of many ghostly and scary tales involving magic, mystery and a generally Kafkaesque atmosphere.
The Songs of David Gallagher consists of essential lyrics and music to D.'s guitar, piano and vocal compositions (1977-2004), with an appendix of guitar and piano chords to accompany the songs.
The Castle & Other Tales is the second collection of short stories by David Gallagher. It includes: The Castle, The Trial, Jars, The Box, Customer Service, Harassment Record, Jars II, The Outsider, A Gold Rush (2004),Hiltenspergerstrasse and The Walkman.
This volume of essays combines new analyses of two subjects of ongoing research in the field of humanities: cinema and the visual arts. Originally presented at the American Comparative Literature Association Conference 2010 in New Orleans, these collected papers have been expanded and extended from their original points of enquiry, and analyse films from the diverse cultural traditions of China, Germany, the United Kingdom, America, Northern Ireland and India. Subjects of examination include China's 'Shanghai Express' and 'The Goddess', Fritz Lang's 'M', and two films from the James Bond franchise, 'Diamonds Are Forever' and 'Casino Royale'. Other areas of investigation include films focusing on Northern Ireland, the depiction of the Indian film industry through Indian writers, and Hong Kong and East Asian cinema.
The focus of the volume then switches to the visual arts, with an explanation of how the classificatory order for the visual arts and art history has long been rigorous in its demand for juxtapositions and comparisons, followed by an examination of modernist abstract art with a specific analysis of the importance of Gertrude Stein's still-lifes in 'Tender Buttons'. Manuel Rivas' use of cross-cultural textualization in 'Mujer en el bano' is explored using the concepts of montage and Benjamin's dialectical image. Lastly Kara Walker's controversial art that highlights racial pictography and violent imagery from the antebellum American South comes under close scrutiny.
Thomas Mann's early Erzahlungen and Buddenbrooks contain many leitmotivs: death, spring, the walnut-tree, the violin, the sea and the 'Liebestod' motif adopted from Act III of Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde. A complete index is neither possible nor practicable in a work of this size which charts the use and non-use of the leitmotiv in all Mann's Erzahlungen up until 1930, engages analytically with some previous research, examines possible literary influences, specific leitmotivs in the Erzahlungen and Mann's use of mythical leitmotivs.
'World Cinema and the Visual Arts' combines two subjects of ongoing research in the field of humanities: cinema and the visual arts. The films analysed encompass a wide geographical base, and have been drawn from a diverse array of cultural traditions.
