Luang kho ngu hao. Now I put my hand in the cobra's throat.


Tuki Aparecio did not kill her lover. She did not burn down the Painted Lady--at least, not with fire. Tuki lit up the stage nightly, with her hair in braids and her glorious costumes; glittering, smoldering, singing her heart out for an audience who loved her. She brought the house down with her performances. But she's innocent of murder, innocent of arson.

How can Michael DeCastro possibly hope to defend this beautiful drag queen, who brings with her a whole pack of nasty little secrets, straight from Bangkok's notorious tenderloin district? She speaks in aphorisms, the wisdom of the Buddha combined with the lyrics of Whitney Houston. She is fascinating. And Michael can't let her go to jail.

The Tides of Provincetown: Pivotal Years in America's Oldest Continuous Art Colony, 1899-2011
This exhibition and accompanying catalogue focus on Provincetown's legacy as an art colony, during the period from Charles W. Hawthorne's founding of the Cape Cod School of Art in 1899 to the present day. Covering more than 100 artists, this is the largest and most comprehensive survey of the art colony completed in over forty years. The catalogue is divided into nine sections that focus on various events in the art colony, such as Hans Hofmann and Forum 49, the establishment of the Tirca Karlis Gallery, and the founding of the Fine Arts Work Center. Essays by leading Provincetown scholars highlight the narrative of Provincetown's importance in America's art history. While many artists worked or lived in Provincetown for years, others "passed through" the art colony. As this catalogue shows, Provincetown's influence extended to many of the great artists of the twentieth century, including Avery, Baziotes, de Kooning, Demuth, Motherwell, Pollock, Rothko, and Warhol.
