The Nature of the Beast is a New York Times bestselling Chief Inspector Gamache novel from Louise Penny. Hardly a day goes by when nine year old Laurent Lepage doesn't cry wolf. From alien invasions, to walking trees, to winged beasts in the woods, to dinosaurs spotted in the village of Three Pines, his tales are so extraordinary no one can possibly believe him. Including Armand and Reine-Marie Gamache, who now live in the little Quebec village. But when the boy disappears, the villagers are faced with the possibility that one of his tall tales might have been true. And so begins a frantic search for the boy and the truth. What they uncover deep in the forest sets off a sequence of events that leads to murder, leads to an old crime, leads to an old betrayal. Leads right to the door of an old poet. And now it is now, writes Ruth Zardo. And the dark thing is here. A monster once visited Three Pines. And put down deep roots. And now, Ruth knows, it is back. Armand Gamache, the former head of homicide for the Sûreté du Québec, must face the possibility that, in not believing the boy, he himself played a terrible part in what happens next.

Charting cultural diversity's various incarnations, from ethnic arts in the late 1970s, black arts in the 1980s, new internationalism in the 1990s and culturally diverse arts in the 21st Century; Hyltons study considers how today's overly benevolent and prescriptive attempts at inculcating cultural diversity within the visual arts reprise much of the outmoded thinking dating back to the 1970s. Through in-depth research and analysis, this study assesses the extent to which certain policies and initiatives might have assisted or hindered the progress of Black artists within the English gallery system.
