The Latest in Paper

Kurt Wallender, a senior detective with the Ystad Police Department, is the focus of a series of international bestsellers by Swedish author Henning Mankell. Police procedurals, these kinds of novels are called, but these books are about police procedure the way Philip K. Dick's science fiction was about star wars: not really.

The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases

The doctor, a large, hulking fellow with fingers more like the digits of some great ape and a persistent cough -- brought about, he'd informed me, by a leech-gathering mission assayed -- or braved! -- in the darker region of night but two weeks previous -- frowned as he relayed his diagnosis.

Superstring, the theory that attempts to gather all the laws of physics into one comprehensive, easy-to-digest recipe, may be not quite fully baked, but "Superstring" the show from UT's Creative Research Laboratory presenting new works by nine MFA candidates, is perfectly cooked and damned tasty.

Secrets of "Secret Furniture'

The examples of domestic utility at Gallery Lombardi's exhibit "Secret Furniture" -- chairs, tables, dressers, lamps, shelving units -- are such compelling combinations of professional manufacture and artistic vision that they'll be talked about for months to come.

In On It: da da kamera

As presented by da da kamera at the Fresh Terrain performance festival, Daniel MacIvor's In On It provided a beautiful and quirky evocation of chance, choice, love, and life's inevitable drift (or plummet) toward death.

Drummer Wanted: Richard Maxwell

Drummer Wanted, Richard Maxwell's drama of a young garage musician's relationship with his mother while recovering from a broken leg was memorable, but chiefly for the distinctively expressionless, uninflected style of delivery that called to mind really bad acting on purpose.

Live on Paper

When he's not covering canvas with acrylic-based images of Japanese toys and Italian scooters and good old American action-figures, Tim Doyle dabbles in the art of the comic book, distilling his day-by-day existence into three black-and-white segments each in monthly issues of Amazing Adult Fantasy.

Erin Cone at the Wally Workman Gallery

"The figurative acrylics and oils of Austin's Erin Cone reveal no specific flow of story; neither are they reproduced as visual elements of what the hipper literati like to call graphic novels. Cone's portraits stand alone," writes Wayne Alan Brenner. See Cone's second annual exhibition at the Wally Workman Gallery during August, and be pleased with your decision.
