In 1963 George Wilson, the landlord of the Fox and Grapes public house in Sneinton, Nottingham was brutally stabbed to death outside his pub. The pub was known to all of the citizens of Nottingham as ?The Pretty Windows? and this name became synonymous with one of Nottingham's most vicious and frenzied murders. George Wilson's attacker was never brought to justice. This book charts a brief history of Sneinton and the part that the pub played, and still plays, in the local community. It uses contemporary newspaper reports to examine the murder, and explores the possible links to other murders committed in the same area in the years immediately prior to and just after 1963.
Detective Superintendent Larry Lunn was not averse to having a "few wets" at his local pubs on most days, as he enjoyed a drink, an enjoyment that his wife tried to change by suggesting they had a healthier lifestyle, and what resulted was an incident with muesli, followed by his hatred of health foods. However when it came to solving bizarre or difficult murders, there was no one finer than "Lock 'Em Up" Larry Lunn, yet ironically, there'd been a series of murders in health food shops that had him baffled, and what fueled his frustration even more was "Aymless" Aymes, his senior officer, being particularly annoying by the way he'd disastrously been meddling with his investigation. So with his sidekick, acting Detective Inspector Frank Sinetra, whom he took his frustrations out on, he would, with more luck than judgement, eventually get to the bottom of the mystery--with surprising results. Another enjoyable light read by this popular author.

This book challenges the belief in the purely linguistic nature of contemporary poetry and offers an interpretation of late twentieth-century Russian poetry as a testimony to the unforeseen annulment of communist reality and its overnight displacement by a completely unfathomable post-totalitarian order. Albena Lutzkanova-Vassileva argues that, because of the sudden invalidation of a reality that had been largely seen as unattained and everlasting, this shift remained secluded from the mind and totally resistant to cognition, thus causing a collectively traumatic psychological experience. The book proceeds by inquiring into a school of contemporary American poetry that has been likewise read as cut off from reality. Executing a comparative analysis, Vassileva advances a new understanding of this poetry as a testimony to the overwhelming and traumatic impact of contemporary media, which have assailed the mind with far more signals than it can register, digest and furnish with semantic weight.
