The drip paintings of Jackson Pollock, trailblazing Abstract Expressionist, appear to be the polar opposite of Thomas Hart Benton's highly figurative Americana. Yet the two men had a close and highly charged relationship dating from Pollock's days as a student under Benton. Pollock's first and only formal training came from Benton, and the older man soon became a surrogate father to Pollock. In true Oedipal fashion, Pollock even fell in love with Benton's wife. Pollock later broke away from his mentor artistically, rocketing to superstardom with his stunning drip compositions. But he never lost touch with Benton or his ideas-in fact, his breakthrough abstractions reveal a strong debt to Benton's teachings. I n an epic story that ranges from the cafÃ©s and salons of Gertrude Stein's Paris to the highways of the American West, Henry Adams, acclaimed author of Eakins Revealed, unfolds a poignant personal drama that provides new insights into two of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.

Tom and Jack tells the story of the Kilfoyles, cousins of the Duracks, who played a major part in the original overland cattle drive from Queensland to the mouth of the Ord River on the border between the Northern Territory and Western Australia, and were instrumental in establishing the cattle industry in that part of the country. Unlike Mary Durack's famous King's In Grass Castles, Geraldine Byrne's account is based completely on fact. What emerges is not only a wonderfully intimate account of the day to day problems and hardships faced by these early pioneers as they struggled to make a living in the most sparsely settled region of the continent but also an account that seriously questions some of the assumptions that were made by Mary Durack in her imaginative recreation. Tom Kilfoyle, for example is portrayed as a colourful character who did things his own way and had, for the time, very enlightened ideas on land management and a more sympathetic attitude to the local Aborigines than many of his contemporaries.

We've all heard this line before. "You better kill me dead, if you don't, I'll be back." That's exactly what Tim said to these men that were terrorizing the town he was raised in. These three brothers Dave, Tom and Jack were the most hated in the town of Hattiesfield. Somehow these brothers didn't have anything better to do like have a job. They were always drinking heavily and getting into fights with the men in town because they would flirt with their women and carry it just a little too far. One day when Tim was driving home a car pulled up right beside him and one of the men rolled down his passenger side window and said "Hey Tim do you want a race?" Tim replied "Not interested." "Are you chicken?" asked Jack, one of the passengers in Tom’s car. "No! Why don't you guys leave me alone!" exclaimed Tim. The men started laughing and calling Tim chicken. Tom decided to play chicken with Tim so he slowed the car down, and got behind Tim's car and tapped his bumper several times. Tim started driving faster, but Tom wasn't about to let up on the chase. Tim finally lost control of his vehicle and his car went off into the ditch and caught on fire. Tom pulled his car over and all three men got out of the car and pulled Tim from his burning car. Tim said "Thanks! I was almost a dead man." Jack said "Did you really think we pulled you out of your burning car to save your life. We only pulled you out because we're going to whoop your ass!" Tim replied "Why?"

Not all crimes are heinous and not all police persons solve their problems with gun-violence. When starting this story, AV Singer was tired of it. Not every situation warrants the immediate firing of a gun nor is it necessary to immediately threaten the use of one. Does anyone else get tired of the endless shoot-em-ups in our media? What if criminals weren't really bad guys? This would eliminate the need to use guns as a solution. What if our heroes were always one step behind? They'd need good intuition because these criminals know what they are doing. What activities could be seen as criminal, but in the end, no harm has occurred? They'd have to have alternative motives. The result was Robins and A Merry Band of Hoods. Senior Inspector Jackson Tyler and his junior partner, Inspector Tomio Dubanowski are stuck on their second swing shift in a week and a half. What could be more stressful than sitting upright at this hour? That's what Tom wants to know. Jackson has been working long enough to take whatever Detroit's police department dishes out; he doesn't care why they've been assigned. Whether to relieve stress or because they botched the last investigation, he simply wants to get on with it, with as little hassle as possible. Someone robs the storeroom of a BP Convenience store. Why? Why would any criminal bother, unless there is something bigger and more sinister than what is apparent? Jack and Tom spend the next twenty-four hours investigating a string of the most absurd crimes they have ever seen: a storeroom robbery, a dairy heist, missing boats, and a weird, musical-chair swap of automobiles. In this 'who-done-it' tale, they chase modern-day Robin Hoods, wondering why any self-respecting criminal would go to such ridiculous lengths to make them miserable. Could swing shift get anymore tortuous? That first draft was whimsy, but three years later, as the final draft was written, gun violence was so pervasive it almost seemed to be the norm. It's reflected in our television programming - unwarranted, brutality-charged arrests, guns as threats or dirty solutions. This is not normal. AV felt a strong need to get away from that paradigm, but there was also a need to address the issue. Most police professionals are conscientious, hardworking people, daily doing an honest job with integrity and compassion. It's only a few that react like fearful animals; a reaction that AV feels is borne from a need for more extensive training. Unfortunately, that untrained reaction is what we see in our programming and on the news. What can we do to change this? Police men and women risk their relationships and sometimes their lives to protect our streets. Wouldn't it be prudent for our culture to spend more money to train them? This revision touches on some of that pathos. Jack's and Tom's lives are touched by a public that is outraged by violence, violence that seems to increase exponentially the more we champion it. The main theme in Robins and a Merry Band of Hoods is farcical, but these characters are facing some of the reality that our real-life police forces face: uncertainty, misunderstandings, and the consequence of being cursorily trained for the untenable situation of having to face anger and contempt on a daily basis. There is just a touch of it to keep this story real, but as promised, the crimes are preposterous and non-violent, and the police do not have to use their guns to bring the story to a satisfying conclusion.
