Culture Shock

Winos—this one isn't for you. Despite the name, this Saturday's Corkfest 2004 has absolutely nothing to do with the fine art of wine-making. The brainchild of artist Corky Frausto, this groovy backyard shindig is designed to showcase some of the best visual artists from the South Valley and beyond.

Performance Review


The Glass Menagerie at the Cell Theatre

First staged in Chicago in 1944, The Glass Menagerie launched Tennessee Williams' superstar career. Following the huge success of the play, he went on to become a household name, composing a string of enduring American classics. Despite his success, of course, Williams' life was famously miserable from start to finish, and he mined his unhappiness more thoroughly than any other American writer of the 20th century.

Book Review

And They Died Happily Ever After

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

Freelance writer Mary Roach, whose work has appeared regularly in publications such as GQ, Wired, Salon, Discover and the New York Times among others, makes as good a case as any for life after death in her latest book, Stiff. Gross, and by turns engrossing, Stiff leads us on the (mostly) silent journeys taken by willed cadavers in the name of scientific research. Roach treats her readers to the full gamut of the strange and often grotesque "lives" of human bodies postmortem—from your basic organ donor to severed heads whose faces are lifted and tucked in plastic surgery seminars, and just about every circumstance in between, in which the uniqueness of the biological human cannot be effectively reproduced.

Sounds gruesome, but advance readers have said Madman's Tale is an uplifting tale starring some courageous, unlikely heroes.
