Francois Rousseau, photographer of Locker Room Nudes and the famed Dieux du Stade calendar, presents a unique and candid collection of nude and seminude photos of more than fifty men in, on, and around water. Wet Men is a celebration of the beauty of the male form, as well as the fulfillment of the fantasies surrounding the swimmers, lifeguards, athletes, and bathers around us. Each photo in this beautifully produced book shows a man or men soaked to their bathing suits-or less-emerging from an afternoon's dip in the ocean, playing on the beach, laying on sailboat decks, or taking a midsummer's soak in a pool. Photographed on the beaches in the South of France, the public pools of Paris, the showers and spas of gyms, and the sparkling waters of Tahiti, these men are not professional models. Rather, they-and their sculpted, healthy, and undeniably sexy bodies-are eroticized, in the water, on the sand, under the sun, for their realness, their masculinity, and their accessibility.

When's the last time you got your hair wet? Not while in the shower or at a beauty salon. I'm not even talking about the last time you went swimming. What I'm referring to is a metaphor for life. A metaphor for all those things we don't do because it's just one of those things Black Woman don't do. Like getting help for depression. Because of the self-imposed limitations, I put on myself as a Black Woman, I had to learn some life lessons the hard way and more importantly delayed my potential. That's why I wrote this book. Whether you struggle with your self-image, faith, finances, branding or relationships (and who hasn't struggled with those at some point?!), I'm hoping that this book will show you where you may have been "scared to get your hair wet" in the sense of stepping out, diving in and reaching your divine potential. It is a self-discovery guide to unlearn old habits, break down barriers and acknowledge the powerful influence you have on others for today's black women. So, take out a weekend. Read a couple of chapters. Look within and challenge yourself with the journal that I've enclosed and let's all GET OUR HAIR WET-for our sake, our daughters and also to help other sistahs do the same!

In such stunning novels of crime and character as Die Upon a Kiss, Sold Down the River, and A Free Man of Color, Benjamin January tracked down killers through the sensuous, atmospheric, dangerously beautiful world of Old New Orleans. Now, in this new novel by bestselling author Barbara Hambly, he follows a trail of murder from illicit back alleys to glittering mansions to a dark place where the oldest and deadliest secrets lie buried . . . Wet Grave It’s 1835 and the relentless glare of the late July sun has slowed New Orleans to a standstill. When Hesione LeGros--once a corsair’s jeweled mistress, now a raddled hag--is found slashed to death in a shanty on the fringe of New Orleans’s most lawless quarter, there are few to care. But one of them is Benjamin January, musician and teacher. He well recalls her blazing ebony beauty when she appeared, exquisitely gowned and handy with a stiletto, at a demimonde banquet years ago. Who would want to kill this woman now--Hessy, they said, would turn a trick for a bottle of rum--had some quarrelsome “customer” decided to do away with her? Or could it be one of the sexual predators who roamed the dark and seedy streets? Or--as Benjamin comes to suspect--was her killer someone she knew, someone whose careful search of her shack suggests a cold-blooded crime? Someone whose boot left a chillingly distinctive print . . . His inquiries at taverns, markets, and slave dances reveal little about “Hellfire Hessy” since her glory days in Barataria Bay, once the lair of gentlemen pirates. Then the murder is swept from his mind by the delivery of a crate filled with contraband rifles--and yet another telltale boot print left by its claimant. When a murder swiftly follows, Ben and Rose Vitrac, the woman he loves, fear the workings of a serpentine mind and a treacherous plot: one only they can hope to thwart in time. All too soon they are fugitives of color in the stormy bayous and marshes of slave-stealer country, headed for smugglers’ haunts and sinister plantations, where one false step could be their last toward a...Wet Grave.

Taking aim at the mostly male bastion of art theory and criticism, Mira Schor brings a maverick perspective and provocative voice to the issues of contemporary painting, gender representation, and feminist art. Writing from her dual perspective of a practising painter and art critic, Schor's writing has been widely read over the past fifteen years in Artforum, Art Journal, Heresies, and M/E/A/N/I/N/G, a journal she coedited. Collected here, these essays challenge established hierarchies of the art world of the 1980s and 1990s and document the intellectual and artistic development that have marked Schor's own progress as a critic. Bridging the gap between art practice, artwork, and critical theory, Wet includes some of Schor's most influential essays that have made a significant contribution to debates over essentialism. Articles range from discussions of contemporary women artists Ida Applebroog, Mary Kelly, and the Guerrilla Girls, to "Figure/Ground," an examination of utopian modernism's fear of the "goo" of painting and femininity. From the provocative "Representations of the Penis," which suggests novel readings of familiar images of masculinity and introduces new ones, to "Appropriated Sexuality," a trenchant analysis of David Salle's depiction of women, Wet is a fascinating and informative collection. Complemented by over twenty illustrations, the essays in Wet reveal Schor's remarkable ability to see and to make others see art in a radically new light. This collection will appeal to visual artists, art historians and students, and a general audience interested in contemporary art, painting, and feminism.

In this book we have expert urologists and gynaecologists on the two sides of the Atlantic working together with a common interest, the inadequate female urethra. What makes this volume so valuable is that it is not restricted to one speciality or one cult, but bravely (and systematically) presents established principles and practice. Not only is the current knowledge of the anatomy and function of the continence mech anisms defined by experts carefully selected by the two authorities in the field, but this infor mation is directly applied to clinical problems for the reader to use in the care of patients. Because the basics are presented first, and followed by the methods of diagnosis, the sec tions describing each form of treatment, whether medical or surgical, are set on rational bases. These are not cookbook directions. This background is especially valuable because the incontinent female usually has a complicated disorder, each case being different, so that the responsible gynaecologists or urologists must apply as much understanding as technique if their efforts are to achieve dryness. The clear descriptions and illustrations in this book, then, act as guides as much as directives. This second edition builds on the success of the first. All of us trying to help these unfortu nate women will do more for them from having this new edition at hand.
