Annals of My Glass House highlights the work of the most famous Victorian woman photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron. Although she did not begin her career until the age of 49, after rearing six children, she produced almost 3,000 photographs from 1864 until her death in 1879. Violet Hamilton's examination of Cameron's photography begins with her first successful recorded work in 1864 and ends in 1874 with her brief autobiography, "Annals of My Glass House", included here. The major thematic categories of her work are considered, including her portraits of prominent Victorians, poetic interpretations of Madonnas and children, and illustrations for Alfred, Lord Tennyson's Idylls of the King. Among Cameron's photographs are intimate studies of her own family and powerful portraits of Victorian artists, writers, and scientists, including historian Thomas Carlyle and astronomer Sir John Herschel.

There is nothing greater than to feel others’ pain or celebrate their happiness. The moment when you can bring peace, joy, and kindness to others is the only moment you live. When you start sharing their pain or start bringing optimism and peace in the dark lives of others is the only moment when you truly exist. We as humans are always in contract with our emotions, such as sadness, love, grief; but I truly believe that words have the power to heal all.

Damon’s an outdoorsman, with a popular Netflix series detailing his exploits. His wife Carrie is the journalist who writes about his many daring deeds. The Lodge is where they go to relax from their busy lives. When Carrie finally informs her husband that the Lodge is too big and too grand for her to do her work, she awakens one morning to find a dozen workmen on the property, constructing a small hideaway for her tucked into the woods. A glass house. Hers alone—with unexpected benefits. It began with an orgy months before the glass house was erected, when Carrie, Damon and his four best friends were sharing pot, liquor and pizza before a cozy fire in the Lodge’s main room. When her lips met Jerry’s for an unexpected kiss and they began to fool around, the other men joined in until Damon’s new bride was fucked by all four – while Damon watched with a sly smirk. In the next few years, the four friends arrive separately at Carrie’s glass house door, and she welcomes them in. The sex is hot. The fun gets kinky. Even a little savage as her lovers slake their lust and hers.

On December 3, 1996, at 4:10 pm, Judge Michael Lyon of the District Court of Weber County, State of Utah, sent a man to prison for a crime committed and confessed to by another man. Prior to imposing the final sentence, Judge Lyon made the following remarks: "I don't know that there is a more difficult case where a judge does more soul searching in a case where a person staunchly denies culpability and at every turn in the system pleads his innocence. We know that there are cases where people are punished for crimes they didn't do. It would just be utterly repugnant for me to think that I could send a man to prison for a crime that he did not commit... I only wish I could look inside your heart. I can't... And the only thing I can do today is do what I think is the right thing to do. And I don't know what's right..., and so I'm just doing the best that I can." His best sent an innocent man to prison for five years, placed him on a state sex offender registry for ten years, and was a life sentence of hatred and abuse because of a fabricated label and conviction. Innocence Beyond the Glass House—A Story of Injustice and the Final Battle for Freedom is the beginning and ending of the story. It's the truth about how one innocent man suffered then lived to tell the tale. It's a book about rebirth and trying to find peace and discovery that came at great cost. It's a look at the criminal justice system at its worst and shows how Lady Justice is not only blind but habitually deaf and dumb. This work is about survival, self-reflection, the indomitable human soul, and about love then hate, friends then enemies, acceptance followed by complete rejection from every segment of humanity, while exhibiting unparalleled endurance and hope and confidence in divine beings, which gave the author the capacity to abide lifelong suffering.

A "smoothly written and fair-minded" (Wall Street Journal) biography of architect Philip Johnson -- a finalist for the National Book Critic's Circle Award. When Philip Johnson died in 2005 at the age of 98, he was still one of the most recognizable and influential figures on the American cultural landscape. The first recipient of the Pritzker Prize and MoMA's founding architectural curator, Johnson made his mark as one of America's leading architects with his famous Glass House in New Caanan, CT, and his controversial AT&T Building in NYC, among many others in nearly every city in the country -- but his most natural role was as a consummate power broker and shaper of public opinion. Johnson introduced European modernism -- the sleek, glass-and-steel architecture that now dominates our cities -- to America, and mentored generations of architects, designers, and artists to follow. He defined the era of "starchitecture" with its flamboyant buildings and celebrity designers who esteemed aesthetics and style above all other concerns. But Johnson was also a man of deep paradoxes: he was a Nazi sympathizer, a designer of synagogues, an enfant terrible into his old age, a populist, and a snob. His clients ranged from the Rockefellers to televangelists to Donald Trump. Award-winning architectural critic and biographer Mark Lamster's The Man in the Glass House lifts the veil on Johnson's controversial and endlessly contradictory life to tell the story of a charming yet deeply flawed man. A rollercoaster tale of the perils of wealth, privilege, and ambition, this book probes the dynamics of American culture that made him so powerful, and tells the story of the built environment in modern America.
