This book situates the picturebook genre within the widespread international phenomenon of crossover literature, examining an international corpus of picturebooks — including artists’ books, wordless picturebooks, and celebrity picturebooks — that appeal to readers of all ages. Focusing on contemporary picturebooks, Sandra Beckett shows that the picturebook has traditionally been seen as a children’s genre, but in the eyes of many authors, illustrators, and publishers, it is a narrative form that can address any and all age groups. Innovative graphics and formats as well as the creative, often complex dialogue between text and image provide multiple levels of meaning and invite readers of all ages to consider texts that are primarily marketed as children’s books. The interplay of text and image that distinguishes the picturebook from other forms of fiction and makes it a unique art form also makes it the ultimate crossover genre. Crossover picturebooks are often very complex texts that are challenging for adults as well as children. Many are characterized by difficult "adult" themes, genre blending, metafictive discourse, intertextuality, sophisticated graphics, and complex text-image interplay. Exciting experiments with new formats and techniques, as well as novel interactions with new media and technologies have made the picturebook one of the most vibrant and innovative contemporary literary genres, one that seems to know no boundaries. Crossover Picturebooks is a valuable addition to the study of a genre that is gaining increasing recognition and appreciation, and contributes significantly to the field of children’s literature as a whole.

Hvordan blir man morder? Lorna Belling gjør hva som helst for å komme seg ut av et destruktivt ekteskap og faller for en ny mann – som lover henne gull og grønne skoger. Men som Lorna finner ut, kan det ofte være manglende samsvar mellom det man planlegger og den vendingen livet faktisk tar. Et tilfeldig foto på en mobil til en av klientene endrer alt for henne.På et offentlig bad i Brighton finner man liket av en kvinne, og politietterforsker Roy Grace tilkalles. Det som først ser ut som en ukomplisert sak med en åpenbar hovedmistenkt, viser seg til Grace sin store overraskelse å være alt annet enn akkurat det.Peter James er et av krimlitteraturens aller sterkeste navn.«James blir bare bedre og bedre. Han fortjener virkelig all suksessen han har hatt med denne førsteklasses serien.»Independent on Sunday

Acclaimed author Jonathan Rosen’s haunting investigation of the forces that led his closest childhood friend, Michael Laudor, from the heights of brilliant promise to the forensic psychiatric hospital where he has lived since killing the woman he loved. A story about friendship, love, and the price of self-delusion, The Best Minds explores the ways in which we understand—and fail to understand—mental illness When the Rosens moved to New Rochelle in 1973, Jonathan Rosen and Michael Laudor became inseparable. The boys, both children of college professors, grew up on the same short street sharing a love of basketball, standup comedy, Doc Savage mysteries and the great expectations of their families. The two best friends were also keen competitors, though Michael was a gifted extrovert, with a photographic memory and confidence to burn, and Jonathan was intensely shy and shadowed by his father’s Holocaust trauma. When they both got into Yale, they seemed set to ascend to the heights of the American meritocratic elite. Leaving Jonathan behind, Michael blazed through college in three years, graduating summa cum laude and landing a top-flight consulting job for far more money than their parents had ever made. But all wasn’t as it seemed. One day, Jonathan received the fateful call: Michael had suffered a serious psychotic break and was institutionalized at a New York City psychiatric hospital where he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. He would stay there for nine months before transitioning to a halfway house. Fearing the prospect of a life spent bagging groceries, Michael decided to play the one card left to him: just before his break, he had been accepted to Yale Law School, and now, against all odds, he planned to enroll. Still struggling mightily with schizophrenia, Michael made it through the top law school in the country. His extraordinary story was featured in the New York Times; an agent sold his memoir to a major publisher for a large sum; Ron Howard swept in to acquire film rights, and Brad Pitt was set to star. It was all a dream come true for Michael and his tirelessly supportive girlfriend Carrie. But then Michael, in the grip of an unshakeable paranoid fantasy, and no longer medicated, stabbed Carrie to death with a kitchen knife and became a front-page story of an entirely different sort. The Best Minds is Jonathan Rosen's brilliant and heartbreaking account of an American tragedy. His exploration is rooted in the dramatic transformation of American culture in the second half of the twentieth century, society’s shifting relationship to mental illness and the marriage of law and psychiatry. It is a story about the bonds of family, friendship, and community, the promise of intellectual achievement and the lure of utopian solutions. At times tender and hilarious, and at times harrowing and almost unbearably sad, The Best Minds is an extreme version of a story that is tragically familiar to all too many. In the hands of a writer of Jonathan Rosen's gifts and dedication, its significance will echo widely.
