The Electric Hotel

From the award-winning author of the acclaimed bestseller The Last Painting of Sara de Vos comes a radiant new novel tracing the intertwined fates of a silent film director and his muse.The Electric Hotel winds through the nascent days of cinema in Paris and Fort Lee, New Jersey - America's first movie town - and the battlefields of Belgium during World War I. A sweeping work of historical fiction, it shimmers between past and present as it tells the story of the rise and fall of a prodigious film studio and one man's doomed obsession with all that passes in front of the viewfinder.For nearly half a century, Claude Ballard has been living at the Hollywood Knickerbocker Hotel. A French pioneer of silent films, who started out as a concession agent for the Lumière brothers, the inventors of cinema, Claude now spends his days taking photographs of Sunset Boulevard. But when a film-history student comes to interview Claude about The Electric Hotel - the lost masterpiece that bankrupted him and ended the career of his muse, Sabine Montrose - the past comes surging back. In his run-down hotel suite, the ravages of the past are waiting to be excavated: celluloid fragments and reels in desperate need of restoration, and Claude's memories of the woman who inspired and beguiled him.The Electric Hotel is a portrait of a man entranced by the magic of movie-making, a luminous romance and a whirlwind trip through the heady, endlessly inventive days of early cinema.

This volume on continental margin sedimentation brings together anexpert editorial and contributor team to create a state-of-the-artresource. Taking a global perspective, the book spans a range oftimescales and content, ranging from how oceans transportparticles, to how thick rock sequences are formed on continentalmargins. * Summarizes and integrates our understanding of sedimentaryprocesses and strata associated with fluvial dispersal systems oncontinental shelves and slopes * Explores timescales ranging from particle transport at oneextreme, to deep burial at the other * Insights are presented for margins in general, and with focuson a tectonically active margin (northern California) and a passivemargin (New Jersey), enabling detailed examination of the intricaterelationships between a wide suite of sedimentary processes andtheir preserved stratigraphy * Includes observational studies which document the processes andstrata found on particular margins, in addition to numerical modelsand laboratory experimentation, which provide a quantitative basisfor extrapolation in time and space of insights aboutcontinental-margin sedimentation * Provides a research resource for scientists studying modern andancient margins, and an educational text for advanced students insedimentology and stratigraphy
