The Covid pandemic: an extraordinary time for everyone. The first lockdown of 2020 brought the world to a halt. For some, it meant a time to get closer to family. For others, the nightmare of domestic abuse. Israeli artist Tali Neeman Sabo and British poet Vivienne Vermes shared their work over the Internet. They found echoes in each other’s stories: it was as if each painting found a poem, and each poem found a painting. They put together this book, expressing in words and in art the joy and pain of being a woman. Proceeds from The Taste of Dark Blue will go to victims of domestic violence, the large majority of whom are women.

Historical accounts of major events have almost always relied upon what those who were there witnessed. Nowhere is this truer than in the nerve-shattering chaos of warfare, where sight seems to confer objective truth and acts as the basis of reconstruction. In The Smell of Battle, the Taste of Siege, historian Mark M. Smith considers how all five senses, including sight, shaped the experience of the Civil War and thus its memory, exploring its full sensory impact on everyone from the soldiers on the field to the civilians waiting at home. From the eardrum-shattering barrage of shells announcing the outbreak of war at Fort Sumter; to the stench produced by the corpses lying in the mid-summer sun at Gettysburg; to the siege of Vicksburg, once a center of Southern culinary aesthetics and starved into submission, Smith recreates how Civil War was felt and lived. Relying on first-hand accounts, Smith focuses on specific senses, one for each event, offering a wholly new perspective. At Bull Run, the similarities between the colors of the Union and Confederate uniforms created concern over what later would be called friendly fire and helped decide the outcome of the first major battle, simply because no one was quite sure they could believe their eyes. He evokes what it might have felt like to be in the HL Hunley submarine, in which eight men worked cheek by jowl in near-total darkness in a space 48 inches high, 42 inches wide. Often argued to be the first total war, the Civil War overwhelmed the senses because of its unprecedented nature and scope, rendering sight less reliable and, Smith shows, forcefully engaging the nonvisual senses. Sherman's March was little less than a full-blown assault on Southern sense and sensibility, leaving nothing untouched and no one unaffected. Unique, compelling, and fascinating, The Smell of Battle, The Taste of Siege, offers readers way to experience the Civil War with fresh eyes.

One autumn in New York, a young Polish poet, studying literature, and a Brazilian anthropologist researching a new book, meet, fall in love and move into a tiny apartment together. Tereza has a lover waiting for her in Poland, Jose a wife and child in Sao Paulo, and it would seem this could only be the most temporary of affairs. Yet there emerges the mesmerizingly explicit portrait of a relationship conducted at the extreme edge of sensuality, defying conventional definition. With no common language, exiled from their culture, for each of them the body of the other becomes everything: spirituality, sustenance, almost unbearable pleasure. Breathtakingly erotic, intensely physical, profoundly intelligent, THE TASTE OF A MAN pursues a path traced by a love based on pure appetite with shameless and unflinching candour, to its ecstatic and terrible conclusion.

The Taste of British South Asian Theatres: Aesthetics and Production offers critical analysis of eight British Asian performances, using an east-west approach of references and theories, the latter including the Rasa theory of the Natyashastra, Brecht's Gestus and semiotics, making a striking contribution to the understanding of one of the most outstanding examples of diasporic artistic activity in recent history. With illustrations, the productions discussed are The Marriage of Figaro (Tara Arts), Curry Tales (Rasa Productions), Mr Quiver: intimate (Rajni Shah), Rafta, Rafta...(National Theatre), Nowhere to Belong: Tales of an Extravagant Stranger (RSC/Tara Arts), A Fine Balance (Tamasha), Deadeye (Kali Theatre) and the Gujarati play Lottery Lottery (Shivam Theatre). "In the search for new models of criticism, Patel's study of eight performances has advanced a subtle recipe that provides a new resource for diaspora studies." -Graham Ley Emeritus Professor of Drama & Theory, University of Exeter
