              From the award-winning author of The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabklov comes the brilliantly conceived and precisely rendered novel Immaculate Blue, which explores the lives of four people -- Anatole, Leigh, Chris, and Lydia -- and their intermingled and unwinding desires. Set in ups...tate New York and Manhattan, the novel follows these characters as they achieve their aims in lives redolent with loss and hope, humor and sadness, union and alienation. Russell picks up the thread of his critically acclaimed novel The Salt Point 20 years later and tracks the lives of these friends, some of whom not only lost touch with each other but have also lost their way. Moving, at times shocking, and always memorable, Immaculate Blue points to where the personal and the political come together and shape our lives in unexpected way. With this newest novel, Paul Russell reminds us of why he is one of the most important voices on the literary scene.

              The philosophical debate about free will and responsibility has been of great importance throughout the history of philosophy. In modern times this debate has received an enormous resurgence of interest and the contribution in 1962 by P.F. Strawson with the publication of his ess...ay Freedom and Resentment has generated a wide range of discussion and criticism in the philosophical community and beyond. The debate is of central importance to recent developments in the free will literature and has shaped the way contemporary philosophers now approach the problem. This volume brings together a focused selection of the major contributions and reactions to the free will and responsibility debate inspired by Strawson's contribution. McKenna and Russell also provide a comprehensive overview of the debate. This book will be of great value to scholars of Strawson and those interested in the free will debate more generally.

              Observing that studies of Hume's general strategy have tended to overlook his naturalistic concerns on the classic compatibilist position in the free will debate, Russell scrutinized his work to demonstrate the importance of these concerns, their continuing relevance to Human tho...ught and his contribution to ongoing issues in contemporary ethics.

              The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov: A Novel
               

              The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov: A Novel (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Russell, Paul

              In his novel based on the extraordinary life of the gay brother of Vladimir Nabokov, Paul Russell re-creates the rich and changing world in which Sergey, his family and friends lived; from wealth and position in pre-revolutionary Russia, to the halls of Cambridge University, and ...the Parisian salon of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. But it is the honesty and vulnerability of Sergey, our young gay narrator, that hook the reader: his stuttering childhood in the shadow of his brilliant brother, his opium-fueled evenings with his sometime lover Cocteau, his troubled love life on the margins of the Ballets Russes and its legendary cast, and his isolation in war torn Berlin where he will ultimately be arrested, sent to a camp and die in 1945. A meticulously researched novel, in which you will meet an extraordinary cast of characters including Picasso, Diaghilev, Stravinsky, Magnus Hirschfield ( Tante Magnesia ), Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Cocteau, Nijinsky, and of course the master himself, Vladimir Nabokov, this is ultimately the story of a beautiful and vulnerable homosexual boy growing into an enlightened and courageous man.
