release date: Jun 23, 2020
The Substitution Order
A NEW YORK TIMES EDITORS' CHOICE Kevin Moore, once a high-flying Virginia attorney, hits rock bottom after a tumultuous summer leaves him disbarred and separated from his wife. Short on cash and looking for work, he lands in the middle of nowhere with a job at SUBstitution, the world's saddest sandwich shop. His closest confidants: a rambunctious rescue puppy and the twenty-year-old computer whiz manning the restaurant counter beside him. Kevin's determined to set his life right again, but the troubles keep coming, including a visit from a mysterious stranger who wanders into the shop armed with a threatening "invitation" to join a multimillion-dollar scam. Before long, Kevin will need every bit of his legal savvy just to stay out of prison. In The Substitution Order, Martin Clark--hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "hands down our best legal-thriller writer"--takes readers on a remarkable tour of the law's tricks and hidden trapdoors and delivers a wildly entertaining novel that will keep you guessing and rooting for its tenacious hero until the very last page.

The Bible Has the Answer

release date: Oct 10, 2019
The Bible Has the Answer
Many people dismiss the Bible as a real source of wisdom for every area of life, believing the popular delusion that the Bible is full of mistakes and is no longer relevant to our modern world. However, neglecting and rejecting God’s Word has its consequences. There are many questions today that demand answers in our daily lives; we can’t avoid them. The Bible is vital in solving (and preventing) the very real problems people face today. A group of 26 topics includes answers to 155 of the most asked questions about the Bible, such as: What was God doing before the beginning? Will we know our loved ones in heaven? When does a baby receive its soul? Can a saved person ever lose their salvation? Under what conditions may Christians divorce & remarry? Will the world be destroyed in a nuclear holocaust? Why did God create Satan? The late Dr. Henry Morris, an acclaimed Christian apologetic scholar, scientist, and author, partnered with Christian counselor Dr. Martin Clark to help you apply the wisdom of the Bible to your personal challenges and nagging questions. These well-researched and referenced answers will fortify your faith in the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and irrefutable source of solutions for life.

The Jezebel Remedy

release date: Jun 09, 2015
The Jezebel Remedy
Martin Clark—who has set, according to the Winston-Salem Journal, “the new standard by which other works of legal fiction should be judged”—now delivers his finest novel yet. Lisa and Joe Stone, married for twenty years and partners in their small law firm in Henry County, Virginia, handle less-than-glamorous cases, whether domestic disputes, personal injury settlements, or never-ending complaints from their cantankerous client Lettie VanSandt (“eccentric” by some accounts, “certifiable” by others). When Lettie dies in a freakish fire, the Stones think it’s certainly possible that she was cooking meth in her trailer. But details soon emerge that lead them to question how “accidental” her demise actually was, and settling her peculiar estate becomes endlessly complicated. Before long, the Stones find themselves entangled in a corporate conspiracy that will require all their legal skills—not to mention some difficult ethical choices—for them to survive. Meanwhile, Lisa is desperately trying to shield Joe from a secret, dreadful error that she would give anything to erase, even as his career—and her own—hangs in the balance. In The Jezebel Remedy, Clark gives us a stunning portrait of a marriage, an intricate tour of the legal system, and a relentlessly entertaining story that is full of inventions, shocks, and understanding. This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

Mussolini

release date: Jun 06, 2014
Mussolini
Benito Mussolini was a brilliant Socialist journalist who in 1914 declared war, put himself at the head if the anti-Socialist movement in Italy, manoeuvred himself into power by 1933 and ruled the country until overthrown in 1943. He was a dynamic but insecure personality, who appeared dictatorial but always had to share power with the military and bureaucratic establishment. Mussolini founded an Empire in Africa and tried to 'make Italians' in his own heroic, war like image, but in fact failed to even control his own family! In June 1940, when France fell, he could not resist joining in the Second World War on the German side, although Italy was not equipped for serious fighting. His rule ended in Military disaster and personal humiliation. This new biography focuses both on Mussolini's personality and on the way he exercised power, and regards these two issues as closely linked. It sees him as a man with all the talents needed to attain power but few of those needed to exercise it well. This book primarily focuses on how Mussolini had absolutely the wrong personality for a successful political leader.

Fredrik Værslev

release date: Jan 01, 2016
Fredrik Værslev
Contemporary Norwegian painter Fredrik Vrslev (b. 1979) presents his new series in this deconstructed exhibition catalog/artists book, All Around Amateur. Inspired by sunsets taken with his iPhone, Vrslev re-creates the images on canvas by using a mechanical trolley used for marking lines on roads or sports fields. The rows of applied color are rubbed into the canvas resulting in resonant toned paintings mimicking the glow of the sun. The paintings are installed to create a massive line of shimmering tones recalling the color field paintings of Rothko. The artist book, accompanying the solo exhibition at Bergen Kunsthall, is available as two different versions, each made up of 320 one-to-one digital images scanned from eight of the new sunset paintings and reproduced in the book sequentially, left to right, top to bottom. Full-bleed scans in each volume together reproduce an entire wall of paintings. Following the images are newly commissioned texts by Ina Blom, Martin Clark, and Steinar Sekkingstad plus an interview with artist Anne Pontgnie.

The Italian Risorgimento

release date: Nov 24, 2015
The Italian Risorgimento
The Unification of Italy in the nineteenth century was the unlikely result of a lengthy and complex process of Italian 'revival' ('Risorgimento'). Few Italians supported Unification and the new rulers of Italy were unable to resolve their disputes with the Catholic Church, the local power-holders in the South and the peasantry. In this fascinating account, Martin Clark examines these problems and considers: · The economic, social and religious contexts of Unification, as well as the diplomatic and military aspects · The roles of Cavour and Garibaldi and also the wider European influences, particularly those of Britain and France · The recent historiographical shift away from uncritical celebration of the achievement of Italian unity. Did 'Italian Unification' mean anything more than traditional Piedmontese expansionism? Was it simply an aspect of European 'secularisation'? Did it involve 'state-building', or just repression? In exploring these questions and more, Martin Clark offers the ideal introductory account for anyone wishing to understand how modern Italy was born. This new edition has been revised in the light of recent research and now has a greater emphasis on the 'losers' of the conflict, the impact of Unification on the South, and the complexity of the political realities of the times. It has also been updated with useful additional material such as a Who's Who and a plate section to go alongside its carefully chosen selection of original documents.

The Indiscipline of Painting
The Indiscipline of Painting, published to accompany an international group exhibition at Tate St Ives, 8 October 2011 - 3 January 2012, and Mead Gallery, Warwick, 14 January - 10 March 2012, explores how the history and legacy of modernist abstract painting continues to inspire painters and artists working today.Through a series of essays by leading critics and curators this beautifully illustrated book demonstrates how the language of abstract painting remains urgent, relevant and critical, tracing its influences on contemporary artists working in Britain, America, France and Germany.Featuring a diverse range of work by both twentieth century and contemporary artists, including Jeremy Moon, Blinky Palermo, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Tomma Abts and Heimo Zobernig, this book brings together art from the 1950s to the present.In particular, it focuses on abstraction's turn away from its expressionistic roots at the end of the 1950s and its move towards a more geometric, post-minimalist tradition, highlighting the resonances still felt by artists today.

Plain Heathen Mischief

release date: Dec 18, 2007
Plain Heathen Mischief
Of The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living, Martin Clark’s first novel, the New York Times Book Review wrote, “Like Nick Hornby in High Fidelity and Thomas McGuane in Nothing But Blue Skies, Clark has produced an oddly stirring portrait of a man in existential disarray.” Which–noted Malcolm Jones in Newsweek–“made me laugh so hard I fell off the sofa.” Plain Heathen Mischief ups the existential ante, as Joel King, a defrocked Baptist minister, finds life even more bedeviling once he’s served six months for a career-ending crime he might not even have committed. Now his incommunicado wife wants a divorce, the teenage vixen of his disgrace is suing him for a cool $5 million, a fresh start in Montana offers no hope for ex-cons of any religious persuasion, and the refuge provided by his sister turns as nasty as his parole officer. Talk about a crisis of faith. On the upside, a solicitous member of Joel’s former congregation invites him into a scam that could yield some desperately needed cash, and soon the down-on-his-luck preacher is involved with a flock of charming con men, crooked lawyers, and conniving youth. In a feat of bravura storytelling, Martin Clark ranges from the cross to the double cross, from Virginia to Las Vegas, from jail cells to trout streams, as he follows his Job-like hero through dubious choices and high-dollar insurance hustles to a redemption that no reader could possibly predict. Wildly imaginative, at times comic, at times profoundly sobering, and even more audacious than his wonderfully idiosyncratic debut, Plain Heathen Mischief is a spiritual revelation of the first order.

Culpable Earth

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Culpable Earth
Culpable Earth is a monographic publication about British artist Steven Claydon's work, published by firstsite on the occasion of Claydon's solo exhibition by the same name (4 February - 7 May 2012).This 144 page book features over 300 illustrations and previously unpublished texts about and by the artist, alongside an extended interview between Claydon and Martin Clark, Artistic Director, Tate St Ives.'Over the last decade Steven Claydon's sculpture, print, painting, film and performance have been worrying away at the taxonomies and values integral to the Western canon. His exhibitions with their hessian grounds, stacked pedestals, frames within frames, portrait busts and eccentric artifacts both emulate and debunk the nature of the museum.' Michelle Cotton

Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes
Drawing inspiration from the seemingly banal objects of daily life, the sculptural installations of Richard Hughes reflect upon instances of the everyday with formal clarity and wit.Often refashioning his subjects using materials such as fiberglass, cast resin, silicone, and polyurethane, Hughes engages us in a process of illusion and artifice, a strategy that continually plays upon our sense of order, knowledge, and perception.This new publication considers the artist's work to date with a text by Joanne Tatham and Tom O'Sullivan, and a conversation between the artist and Martin Clark, Artistic Director of Tate St Ives.Hughes has exhibited at Tate Britain and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; the Palazzo Grassi, Venice; and the Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach. He lives and works in London.

Goodbye Ploy

release date: Jun 18, 2019
Goodbye Ploy
Where men and women differ starts with the element of lying, as well as how we spare one another. Clark sets off a much delayed catharsis in self-discovery and how we're much better off in accepting our inner being before anything else. At times sparse, and still evoking a tender prose, this makes for a fine debut for those seeking a contemporary memoir.
