Anne Hollander begins with the great masters of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries—Van Eyck, Durer, Bruegel—and progresses through the history of European art to the advent of film in the modern era. She explores the interconnectedness of painting, prints, and film as modes of art that in comparable ways depict moments in the narrative flow of human life. Moving Pictures offers a new way of assessing the artistic, emotional, and psychological power of paintings and pictures—and of understanding our own deepest responses to them.

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
