Rodopi, Amsterdam/New York, 2004, ISBN:9042011653 
BROWN, James W. "Sensing", "Seeing", "Saying" in Camus' "Noces" : A Meditative Essay. Amsterdam/New York: Rodopi, (2004). First Printing. Pp. (8),[9]-118,(2). 8vo, photo-illustrated yellow card covers, green lettering to front cover and spine. Chiasma, number 14. "James Brown's study of Camus' 'Noces' explores the many crossovers from mind to text by recording the writer'sconsciousness as an emanation and the reader's consciousness as a receptio n-perception. Writer anD reaeder become one in this movement. Their shared mental space is analogous to the locus of the transmission of wisdom in many spiritual traditions. This book focuses on the textual and linguistic means through which the crossover takes place. Brown's new reading of Camus isan outgrowth of bare awareness meditation. He subjects a text that was int ended by Camus as a meditation to anotehr meditative consciousness, that ofthe reader-writer who comes to 'Noces' without ideological baggage. In thi s sense the reading process itself becomes an essay in the original meaningof the world: a trial, an attempt, an inquiry. Another origianl aspect of 'Sensing, Seeing, Saying' is the fact that the reading process doubles as non-directed meditative practice, for it does not attempt to interpret, judge, or evaluate the text in question but aims to engage it spiritually, to enter into its presence. As background to his reading the author uses vipashyana, or insight meditation, which derives directly from the Buddha's own experience and teaching." - from the rear cover.

BRUNEAU, Carol. These Good Hands. [A novel]. (Toronto: Cormorant Books, 2015). First paperback printing. Pp. (8),[1]-311,(1). 8vo, decorated pale cardcovers with brown and black lettering to front cover and spine. "Set in th e early autum of 1943 in Vichy France, 'These Good Hands' interweaves the stories of Camille Claudel, the French sculptor, and Solange Poitier, the fictional nurse who cared for her in the final days of her thirty-year incarceration in the Montdevergues Asylum. Claudel's biographers have suggested that she survived her long internment by writing letters, few of which ever left the asylum's walls. In 'These Good Hands', Bruneau reimagines these asletters to her younger self, famous for being Auguste Rodin's tragic mistr ess and not for her artistic talent." - from the front flap.
