HOLIDAY GIFT IDEA

SHOW & TELL , William Greiner, UL Press (2013). $35.00

About:

Show & Tell

The great mystery of photography has always been that the process shows us how something looks but leaves us to our own devices to figure out what it might mean. Show and Tell not only embodies this dichotomy but celebrates it.

Photographer William Greiner presented writers with a trio of photographs, asking that they choose one on which to base a story. Twenty-eight photographs and some 46,000 words later, the collaborative results make up his new book, which includes pictures from six of the themes that have marked his career to date: Picturing People, UKOK, Cruise, Baton Rouge Blues, Oh Augusta, and Snapshot.

really early sunday morning

Wind. Trees. Cold air.

The whirring of the wheels and the staccato rhythm of the trees slipping by lulls him into a kind of trance. Even though it usually takes him about twenty minutes, tonight it feels like time is standing still. So, he pedals harder.

The tops of the trees. He knows the way by........

Woman in Red Dress

by

Lloyd Stein

In Los Angeles, anybody can be somebody....and most nobodies are somebody, but not necessarily anybody somebody would care to know.
Which explains why I'm standing at the front door of Dee Turnell.
Where I live in west Los Angeles, people go out of their way to look normal--even the celebrities--but Dee stuck out of the crowd. With her bold outfits, ruby-red lipstick, and perfectly coifed hair, she is impossible to miss, and I knew I had to meet her.

You'll Almost Miss the Whole Thing

by

Sigers Steele
(Shanteka Sigers)

I have learned that right before you die, your life does not flash by in a calming series of well-lit visuals.
That's not how it happens. You'll be afraid. You'll be trying to scramble to grab more life.
You'll be distracted and annoyed by all these "things" your mind is trying to show you. Imagine you've been hit by a ........

The Plateau

by

Renee Rosen*

Marla dreads Friday mornings. Even more than Monday mornings. Friday mornings have become judgment day, and yet her reward for success is only more punishment; more sacrifice, more restrictions, more rules imposed upon her. Still, she knows it's best to face this on Fridays rather than coming off an overindulgent weekend. So, after flushing the toilet, she slips her terrycloth robe off her shoulders, wrestles out of her nightgown and underwear. Taking a deep breath, she steps........

Lie If You Have To

I'm inside the steam room, too, sitting on the hot cedar, trying to keep their inane anecdotes out of my head, waiting for Elise- Elise with the face I can't forget--staring at a wall of white and expecting to die all over again.

What if he killed them all? Imagine the lawsuits. We could feed a legion of estate attorneys for decades. And the thank-you cards, too. Imagine those. A tsunami of them sent in secret and signed by a brigade of trust-fund babies flush with lust and life insurance checks.

What about Julien with her......
