For Suzanne Buffam

Every dollhouse should have a mirror so its inhabitant (in this case you) can see herself or at least one eye peering like Alice into the tiny keyhole every book should have a poem small enough to slip through on the flood of her tears

2011 Nobel Prize in Literature: Tomas Tranströmer The Sorrow Gondola
Tomas Tranströmer Translated by Michael McGriff and Mikaela Grassl
“Through his condensed, translucent images, he gives us fresh access to reality.”—2011 Nobel Prize in Literature citation The Sorrow Gondola is Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer’s first collection of poems after his stroke in 1990. Translated by Michael McGriff and Mikaela Grasssl, Tranströmer’s great work is available here in its first single-volume English edition. “The Light Streams In” Outside the window, the long beast of spring the transparent dragon of sunlight rushes past like an endless commuter train—we never caught a glimpse of its head. The beach houses moving sideways they are proud as crabs. The sun makes the statues blink. The Sorrow Gondola
Tomas Tranströmer Translated by Michael McGriff and Mikaela Grassl Green Integer Trade Paper US $11.95 | CAN $13.95 978-1-933382-44-9 USC

The sea of fire rages out in space becomes a soft touch on the earth. The countdown has begun. Born April 15, 1931, Tomas Tranströmer attended secondary school at Stockholm’s Södra Latin School, graduating from Stockholm University as a psychologist in 1956. Influenced by Expressionist and Surrealist poetics, Tranströmer’s work has been criticized for not dealing directly with political issues. But his concerns are the mythic and imaginative aspects of human life, influenced, in part, by his role as a psychologist and his work with juveniles in prisons. In 1990 he suffered a stroke which affected his speech, but did not diminish his writing ability. As one of Sweden’s most notable poets, he has received numerous awards, including the Bonnier Award for Poetry, the Neustadt International Prize for Literature, the Oevralids Prize, the Petrarca-Preis (Germany), and the Swedish Award from International Poetry Forum. In 2007 he received the distinguished Lifetime Recognition Award from the Griffin Trust for Excellence in Poetry.

Go the Fuck to Sleep
Adam Mansbach Illustrated by Ricardo Cortés

Go the Fuck to Sleep has become a cultural phenomenon!
Go the Fuck to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award–winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar—and unspoken—tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations and laugh at their absurdity.

With illustrations by Ricardo Cortés, Go the Fuck to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny—a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

“This is the most honest children’s book ever written. And it’s f*cking hilarious.” —A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically, father of three

AK Press The People’s Pension
The Struggle to Defend Social Security Since Reagan

Eric Laursen

“Laursen has given us a comprehensive account of the three decade long war against Social Security. . . . This is a fascinating history that progressives must learn, not only to protect Social Security but also to understand the dynamics behind an effective long-term strategy.”—Dean Baker, author of False Profits: Recovering From the Bubble Economy “This magnificent history documents the hydra-headed campaign to cut and kill Social Security, conducted over decades by rightwing bankers, foundations, economists, and politicians. [The People’s Pension] is utterly urgent.” —James K. Galbraith, author of The Predator State The People’s Pension is both groundbreaking history and an indispensable guide for anyone concerned about one of the biggest issues in the upcoming election. With 95 percent of Americans participating in the program either as beneficiaries or through their payroll tax contributions, Social Security is quite literally the “glue” that binds Americans together as a community. Yet in the aftermath of the debt reduction deal between Barack Obama and congressional Republicans, the 2012 election promises to be a kind of referendum on the size and role of government—including economic support programs like Social Security. Arguing to democratize, not disable the program, Eric Laursen suggests that the only solution for Social Security is taking it out of the government’s hands altogether. Eric Laursen is an independent financial and political journalist, activist, and commentator. The co-founder and former managing editor of Plan Sponsor, a magazine for pension fund executives, Laursen is also the co-author of Understanding the Crash (2010). His work has appeared in a wide variety of publications, including The Huffington Post, The Nation, Institutional Investor, The Village Voice, and Investment Dealer’s Digest.

AK Press Hopeless
Barack Obama and the Politics of Illusion

Edited by Jeffrey St. Clair and Joshua Frank
“Those who feel that like lemmings they are being led over a cliff would be well-advised not to read this book. They may discover that they are right.” —Noam Chomsky “Jeffrey St. Clair and Joshua Frank have skillfully smoked out the real Barack Obama . . . the technofascist military strategist disguised as a Nobel Peace Laureate, but owned, operated, and controlled by Wall Street, Corporate America, and the Pentagon.”—Thomas H. Naylor, co-author of Affluenza, Downsizing the USA “The writers assembled here hit hard, with accuracy, and do not pull punches.”—Marcus Rediker, author of The Slave Ship: A Human History The Barack Obama revolution was over before it started, guttered by the politician’s overweening desire to prove himself to the grandees of the establishment. From there on, other promises proved ever easier to break. Here’s the book that dares not let Obama off the hook. It’s all here: the compromises, the backstabbing, the same old imperial ambitions. Covering all major “Obummer” categories since he took office, this fast-paced collection will delight the critical and offer food for thought for those contemplating the 2012 electoral circus—and beyond. Jeffrey St. Clair is co-editor of CounterPunch, author of Born Under a Bad Sky and Been Brown So Long it Looked Green to Me, and co-author of Whiteout: The CIA, Drugs, and the Press. Joshua Frank is an environmental journalist and co-editor of Red State Rebels: Tales of Grassroots Resistance in the Heartland. His investigative reports and columns appear in CounterPunch, Chicago Sun-Times, Common Dreams, and AlterNet.

AK Press Arab Spring, Libyan Winter
Vijay Prashad

The Arab Spring captivated the planet. Mass action overthrew Tunisia’s Ben Ali and Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. The revolutionary wave spread to the far corners of the Arab world, from Morocco to Bahrain. It seemed as if all the authoritarian states would finally be freed, even those of the Arabian Peninsula. People’s power had produced this wave, and continued to ride it out. In Libya, though, the new world order had different ideas. Social forces opposed to Muammar Qaddafi had begun to rebel, but they were weak. In came the French and the United States, with promises of glory. A deal followed with the Saudis, who then sent in their own forces to cut down the Bahraini revolution, and NATO began its assault, ushering in a Libyan Winter that cast its shadow over the Arab Spring. This brief, timely analysis situates the assault on Libya in the context of the winds of revolt that swept through the Middle East in the Spring of 2011. Vijay Prashad explores the recent history of the Qaddafi regime, the social forces who opposed him, and the role of the United Nations, NATO, and the rest of the world’s superpowers in the bloody civil war that ensued. Vijay Prashad is the George and Martha Kellner Chair of South Asian History, and professor and director of international studies at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. He is the author or editor of over a dozen books, including Karma of Brown Folk and, most recently, The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World.
The world watched as the bud of the Arab Spring was buried under the cold darkness of the Libyan Winter.

It ain’t easy being a kid these days. For the first time in generations, today’s teens have worse prospects ahead of them than their parents did, and the pressure to toe the line and be a success is heavier than ever . . . and so is the temptation to just give up. But there are things in the world worth fighting for! This scrapbook-style collection of essays, excerpts, explanations, and images pushes back against a culture that relentlessly demands that kids give up their best ideals, abandon their hopes, forget their ethical objections to dominant life, soothe their rage, and accept their fates. From dealing with the cops to dealing with your peers, from school and community to drugs and sex, from race and class to money and mental health, Stay Solid! provides essential support for radically inclined teens who believe that it’s possible for all of us to hang on to our values and build a life we believe in. Compiled and edited by radical urbanist and educator Matt Hern, with the assistance of the youth community at Vancouver’s Purple Thistle Center, Stay Solid! is for kids everywhere, and for anyone who considers themselves an ally— parents, teachers, neighbors, friends, relatives, and beyond. Contributors include Noam Chomsky, Patricia Hill Collins, The Guerilla Girls, Derrick Jensen, Grace Llewellyn, Margaret Killjoy, Dan Savage, Astra Taylor, and more.

Growing up doesn’t mean giving up! The quintessential guide to staying true to you in a fucked up world.

Raúl Zibechi
Translated by Ramor Ryan
“Rich and complicated . . . [Territories in Resistance] will be a key reference point in the development of anti-systemic thought.”—Gilberto López y Rivas, La Jornada Territories in Resistance is an indispensable complement to existing literature on Latin American autonomous social movements. Explore the “other worlds” being created in the wreckage of colonialism and capitalism. From Mexico, Ecuador, and Colombia to Argentina and Brazil, no living author digs as deep and presents theoretical challenges quite like Raúl Zibechi. Raúl Zibechi is an international analyst for Brecha, a weekly journal in Montevideo, Uruguay, and the author of Dispersing Power: Social Movements as AntiState Forces (AK Press, 2010).

AK Press Truth and Revolution
A History of the Sojourner Truth Organization, 1969–1986

Michael Staudenmaier
Preface by John H. Bracey, Jr.
Founded in Chicago in 1969 from the rubble of the recently crumbled SDS, the Sojourner Truth Organization (STO) brought working-class consciousness to the forefront of New Left discourse, sending radicals back into the factories and thinking through the integration of radical politics into everyday realities. Through the influence of founding members like Noel Ignatiev and Don Hamerquist, STO took a Marxist approach to the question of race and revolution, exploring the notion of “white skin privilege,” and helping to lay the groundwork for the discipline of critical race studies.

Akashic Books Office Girl
Joe Meno
Illustrated by Cody Hudson Photographs by Todd Baxter
No one dies in Office Girl. Nobody talks about the international political situation. There is no mention of any economic collapse. Nothing takes place during a World War. Instead, this novel is about young people doing interesting things in the final moments of the last century. Odile is a lovely twenty-three-year-old artschool dropout, a minor vandal, and a hopeless dreamer. Jack is a twentyfive-year-old shirker who’s most happy capturing the endless noises of the city on his out-of-date tape recorder. Together they decide to start their own art movement in defiance of a contemporary culture made dull by both the tedious and the obvious. Set in February 1999—just before the end of one world and the beginning of another—Office Girl is the story of two people caught between the uncertainty of their futures and the all-too-brief moments of modern life. Joe Meno’s latest novel also features black-and-white illustrations by renowned artist Cody Hudson and photographs by visionary photographer Todd Baxter. Joe Meno is a fiction writer and playwright who lives in Chicago, Illinois. He is a winner of the Nelson Algren Literary Award, a Pushcart Prize, the Great Lakes Book Award, and was a finalist for the Story Prize. He is the author of five novels and two short story collections including Hairstyles of the Damned, The Great Perhaps, The Boy Detective Fails, and Demons in the Spring. His short fiction has been published in One Story, McSweeney’s, swink, LIT, TriQuarterly Online, Other Voices, Gulf Coast, and broadcast on NPR. His nonfiction has appeared in The New York Times and Chicago magazine. He is an associate professor in the fiction writing department at Columbia College Chicago.
Joe Meno is back with a fantastic new novel about two young people and a visionary, doomed art movement.

Akashic Books Seriously, Just Go to Sleep
Adam Mansbach
Illustrated by Ricardo Cortés
Critical praise for the original Go the Fuck to Sleep, a number one bestseller at: The New York Times,, The Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and many more: “Incredibly appealing.”—National Public Radio “A parenting zeitgeist. . . . A phenomenon that has stunned the publishing world and may just redefine the modern ‘parenting’ market.”—The Washington Post The one shortcoming of the instant international bestseller and cultural phenomenon Go the Fuck to Sleep is that children cannot join in the fun. That problem has now been remedied with a 100 percent child-friendly alternate version. As parents know, young children are well aware of the difficulty of getting them to bed. Seriously, Just Go to Sleep lets them relish their own mischievousness, recognize their own tactics, and, most importantly, allows children and parents to joke with one another about one of the most stressful elements of a parent’s life: getting his or her child to sleep.

Akashic Books Letters to Kurt
Eric Erlandson

Letters to Kurt is an anguished, angry, and tender meditation on the octane and ether of rock and roll and its many moons: sex, drugs, suicide, fame, and rage. It’s part The Dream Songs, part Charles Bukowski, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, and The Clash. Rants, reflections, and gunshot fill these fifty-two prose poems. They are raw, funny, sad, and searching. This will make a beautiful book for anyone who loved Nirvana and Hole and the time and place when their music changed everything. Ultimately, it’s an elegy for Kurt Cobain and the “suicide idols” who tragically fail to find salvation in their amazing music. Eric Erlandson is a musician best known as the co-founder (with Courtney Love), songwriter, and lead guitarist of alternative rock band Hole. In 1991 Hole released its debut album Pretty on the Inside and quickly achieved underground success in the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe. Erlandson and Love then signed a contract with Geffen/DGC, and with new band members they wrote and recorded their major label debut Live Through This. The album, ranked by Time magazine as one of the top one hundred albums of all time, received tremendous critical acclaim and sold over a million copies. Following the deaths of Love’s husband Kurt Cobain and Hole bassist Kristen Pfaff, the band toured the world in support of Live Through This. In 1998 Hole released the album Celebrity Skin, which also received rave reviews. In 2002 Erlandson and Love officially disbanded Hole. Since then, Erlandson has been involved in a number of musical projects including producing, touring, and songwriting. He has studied creative writing and occasionally reads at various poetry events in Los Angeles, California, where he lives.
A poetic elegy for Kurt Cobain from the man who created the band Hole with Cobain’s wife Courtney Love.

Akashic Books The Nervous System
Nathan Larson
“The Dewey Decimal System is a winningly tight, concise, and high-impact book.” —New York Press “The Dewey Decimal System is proof positive that the private detective will remain a serious and seriously enjoyable literary archetype.”—PopMatters “Larson’s voice is note-perfect in this tour-de-force.”—Mystery Scene Magazine After a series of large-scale terrorist attacks, New York City is reduced to a shadow of its former self. As the city struggles to dig itself out of the wreckage, a nameless, obsessive-compulsive veteran with a spotty memory, a love for literature, and a strong if unique moral code has taken up residence at the Main Branch of the New York Public Library. Dubbed “Dewey Decimal” for his desire to reorganize the library’s stock, he gets by as bagman and muscle for unscrupulous politicians and underworld figures—as detailed in the first book in this series, The Dewey Decimal System. In The Nervous System, Decimal, attempting to clean up loose ends after the violent events in the first book, stumbles upon information concerning the gruesome murder of a prostitute and a prominent US senator’s involvement. Immediately he finds himself chasing ghosts and fighting for his life, pursued by Blackwater-style private military contractors and the ever-present specter of his own past. Decimal confronts a twilight world of Korean hostess bars, childhood bogeymen, and the face of the military-industrial complex gone haywire—all framed by a city descending toward total chaos. Nathan Larson is best known as an award-winning film music composer, having created the scores for over thirty movies such as Boys Don’t Cry, Dirty Pretty Things, and The Messenger. His highly acclaimed debut novel, The Dewey Decimal System, was published in the spring of 2011. In the ’90s, he was the lead guitarist for the influential prog-punk outfit Shudder to Think. Larson lives in Harlem, New York, with his wife and son.
Nathan Larson’s antihero Dewey Decimal is back in this bombastic and soulful sequel to The Dewey Decimal System. Also Available

Akashic Books The Jesus Lizard Book
The Jesus Lizard

The Jesus Lizard Book is a coffee table affair of exclusive photography, art, and other imagery with written pieces by all four members of the seminal indie rock band The Jesus Lizard. The layout is stylish and elegant, particularly in contrast with the harshness of much of the band’s music. Included are many Polaroids by David Wm. Sims, a delicious recipe by David Yow, a concise list of every show The Jesus Lizard played, and writings by the three producers who recorded the band—Steve Albini, Andy Gill, and Garth Richardson. There is biographic material of each member that covers childhood to the demise of the group. Other contributors include, but are not limited to, Mike Watt, Alexander Hacke, Steve Gullick, Krist Novoselic, Shelley Leopold, Jeff Lane, KRK, Bernie Bahrmasel, and more. The Jesus Lizard (1988–1999) hailed from Chicago by way of Austin, Texas. They released seven records on the independent record label Touch and Go, and a few more on different major labels. Many have called them the best live band of the 1990s. Unlike most of their contemporaries, The Jesus Lizard managed to create a beast, an entirely autonomous being, an entity that outgrew and is very likely to also outlive their makers. While each and every personality in the group is an integral part of its mentality and thus ultimately irreplaceable, it is the rapport and friction between them which makes the music possible; allows it to blossom and eventually break free. The Jesus Lizard is: David Yow (vocals), David Wm. Sims (bass), Duane Denison (guitar), and Mac McNeilly (drums).
Legendary indie rockers The Jesus Lizard present an idiosyncratic, impassioned book document of their rock and roll conquests.

Akashic Books A Mind of Winter
Shira Nayman

“A marvelous book that sweeps across decades and around the world to reveal dark secrets locked tight within the human heart.”—Jed Horne, author of Desire Street and Breach of Faith “Shira Nayman’s sentences have heft and spine and grace, and her vision is clear and generous.”—Mary Gordon, author of Spending “Shira Nayman writes with wisdom and courage.”—Ursula Hegi, author of Sacred Time Oscar is a mysterious Englishman who presides over Ellis Park, a sprawling mansion in East Hampton, Long Island. It is 1951, and as the jazz bands play and the ever-present houseguests waft through the mansion, the war seems much farther away than a mere six years. Oscar, however, is tormented by his own questionable wartime dealings and he is also haunted by memories of Christine, his great love who, after the war, sailed away to Shanghai. One of Oscar’s frequent houseguests, Marilyn, a photographer who spent the war years in England, has moved into Ellis Park for the summer to work on her photo book. Marilyn reminds Oscar of Christine and he enjoys spending time with her; Oscar also suspects that Marilyn has embarked on an affair with another houseguest—Barnaby, a swashbuckling character whose far-flung wanderings included a long stint in Shanghai, where Barnaby himself was involved with Christine. The narrative unfolds through the three different points of view of Oscar, Christine, and Marilyn, in cities on three continents—East Hampton, Shanghai, and London. A Mind of Winter is a complex, page-turning, literary psychological thriller that takes up a rich array of themes. Shira Nayman is a clinical psychologist who works as a strategic brand marketer and also teaches fiction writing at Barnard College. She has published fiction and nonfiction in The Atlantic, the Georgia Review, New England Review, and elsewhere, and is the author of two works of fiction, Awake in the Dark (novella and stories) and The Listener (a novel).
A complex, page-turning, literary psychological thriller set in 1951, reminiscent of The Great Gatsby.

Alice James Books Murder Ballad
Jane Springer

“Jane Springer’s poems are dazzling, devastating, and utterly original— sound-rich, sensual, sensational—you will be carried away.”—Naomi Shihab Nye On one hand Murder Ballad is a fierce critique of Jane Springer’s Southern inheritance, on the other these poems quickly reveal the enigmatic beauty and sharply ironic humor contained in the still-relevant colloquialisms that often shape her characters. Her loose definitions of Southern-isms are the jumping-off place for the masterful poet as she leaps, narrates, and redefines the American South. From “Pretty As You Please”: Then when you’re nightfishing the Mississippi & catching a bucket of nothing, lonely as a single barge weeping its rust in the water—you see them—on a bridge above you, hair slick as frogskin& glittering from skinny dipping— as in bucknaked & necking—& suddenly the moon is an empty jar of mayo. Jane Springer’s first book Dear Blackbird (University of Utah Press, 2007) won the Agha Shahid Ali Poetry Prize. Her other awards include an AWP Intro Prize, the Robert Penn Warren Prize for Poetry, an NEA fellowship, and a Whiting Writers Award. She teaches poetry at Hamilton College in upstate New York, where she lives with her husband, son, and two dogs. Her poems have appeared in or are forthcoming from such places as Fugue, Oxford American, and The Southern Review.
If David Sedaris was a Southern female poet, this is the book he would write—certainly he would read it.

Alice James Books Western Practice
Stephen Motika

“If twentieth century California artists established a tradition of speculative innovation, then Western Practice ushers visionary West Coast poetics into the twenty-first. Motika’s ingenious ear renders place prosodic; his ‘baroque leaps’ tender a sprung rhythm that turns history into ‘a theory at map’s edge.’ The ‘mystic / gather’ of this music gives Motika’s ambitious projective praxis visual beauty and structural rigor. Open this book—‘crawl inside & lie down against the future.’”—Brian Teare Shaped by California’s cultural and political landscape, Western Practice reflects on the rituals of artistic activity, including an obsessive scrutinizing of the founders of Los Angeles’ postwar art scene, from composer Harry Partch to painter Richard Diebenkorn. Stephen Motika’s debut collection draws striking parallels between geography and visionary artists’ work, creating an aesthetic and emotive topos all its own. From “1956”:

Alice James Books Sudden Dog
Matthew Pennock

“‘It’s only America,’ writes Matthew Pennock. ‘We watch it unravel like a fourth act without direction.’ And so in Pennock’s fine first collection, we find a country of war and surveillance, an economy of boom and collapse and a consciousness built of fragments assembled, admired, broken again. Sudden Dog is a troubling, moving, and memorable book, that returns—strangely and via estrangement—to love.”—Mark Wunderlich Honest and vulnerable, Sudden Dog’s speaker ardently engages the self as drunken romantic, or even as domesticated animal in the loud realm of the real. We follow Matthew Pennock because he convinces us of his singular and lyrical voice, because he shows us how to be reckless yet stoic, dignified yet sardonic, quick to joke yet on the verge of tears. From “Colorwheel”: Sick, smug little bastards like the lindens I sit under every Monday, which were, a few weeks ago, slashes of ink against boring grey overcast. Now variations of green on blue, the little fuckers think they’re so hot, I’ve got color too, Color Safe Tide colors wrapped in citrus and sex against the sky that clears the bottom line of anything less than sublime Matthew Pennock received his MFA from Columbia University. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in literary journals including Western Humanities Review, LIT, Denver Quarterly, New York Quarterly, and American Literary Review. He lives in Manhattan, New York. He teaches at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and works at Yeshiva University.
This post-modern Romantic struggles against the frenetic torpor of modernity and gives us poems that make us feel more alive. Marketing Plans

Archipelago Books My Struggle
Karl O. Knausgaard
Translated by Don Bartlett

Winner of the 2009 Brage Prize, the 2010 Book of the Year Prize in Morgenbladet, the 2010 P2 Listeners’ Prize, and the 2004 Norwegian Critics’ Prize and nominated for the 2010 Nordic Council Literary Prize. “No one in his generation equals Knausgaard.”—Dagens Næringsliv “A tremendous piece of literature.”—Politiken (Denmark) To the heart, life is simple: it beats for as long as it can. Then it stops. Sooner or later, one day or another, this thumping motion shuts down of its own accord. . . . The changes of these first hours happen so slowly and are performed with such an inevitability that there is almost a touch of ritual about them, as if life capitulates according to set rules, a kind of gentleman’s agreement. Almost ten years have passed since Karl O. Knausgaard’s father drank himself to death. He is now embarking on his third novel while haunted by self-doubt. Knausgaard breaks his own life story down to its elementary particles, often recreating memories in real time, blending recollections of images and conversation with profound questions in a remarkable way. Knausgaard probes into his past, dissecting struggles—great and small—with great candor and vitality. Articulating universal dilemmas, this Proustian masterpiece opens a window into one of the most original minds writing today. Karl O. Knausgaard was born in Norway in 1968. His debut novel Out of This World won the Norwegian Critics’ Prize and his A Time for Everything was nominated for the Nordic Council Prize.
A Norwegian Marcel Proust. This nerve-striking, addictive piece of “hyper-realism” has created a phenomenon throughout Scandinavia. Written as though his very life were at stake. Marketing Plans

Archipelago Books As Though She Were Sleeping
Elias Khoury
Translated by Marilyn Booth

Praise for Elias Khoury’s New York Times Notable Book Gate of the Sun: “An imposingly rich and realistic novel, a genuine masterwork.”—The New York Times Book Review “The beautiful, resilient city of Beirut belongs to Khoury.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review Milia’s eyelashes drew apart, her eyes still curtained in drowsiness. She made up her mind to close them again and return to her dream. She saw a small white candle whose wan light trembled and flickered in the fog . . . Milia’s response to her new husband Mansour and to the Middle East of 1947 is to close her eyes and drift into parallel worlds where identities shift, where she can converse with the dead and foresee the future. As the novel progresses, Milia’s dreams become more navigable than the strange and obstinate “reality” in which she finds herself, and the two worlds grow ever more entangled.

Translated by Stela Tomaševic ´
“Jergovic is an enormously talented storyteller.”—Aleksandar Hemon ´ A masterful collection of stories that draws the reader into a boy’s episodic, profoundly personal recounting of his war-torn homeland and childhood. Dazzling, rhapsodic, and above all compassionate, these linked stories, deeply rooted in place and history, break down stereotypes and humanize a complex cultural conflict.

Book of My Mother
Albert Cohen
Translated by Bella Cohen
“One of the most beautiful love stories ever written.”—Paris Match Shortly after Albert Cohen left France for London to escape the Nazis, he received news of his mother’s death in Marseille. Unable to mourn her, he expressed his grief in a series of moving pieces for La France libre, which later grew into Book of My Mother. Achingly honest, intimate, moving, it is a tribute to all mothers. Albert Cohen (1895–1981) is the author of Solal (1930); Mangeclous (1938); Belle du Seigneur (1968), which was awarded the French Academy’s Grand Prix du Roman; and Les Valereux (1969).

Archipelago Books Mister Blue
Jacques Poulin
Translated by Sheila Fischman

“This is a great and very beautiful novel.”—Le Devoir “One of my favorite writers in the world is Jacques Poulin.”—Rawi Hage “Poulin shares a mix of detached humor, fantasy, and compassion with Vonnegut and Salinger.”—The StarPhoenix Spring had arrived. The day was so mild that I came down from the attic earlier than usual. I went out on the beach with Mr. Blue and walked to the end of the bay. I was taking a little rest, sitting on a rock that faced the river, when suddenly I noticed some footprints in the sand. Arguably Jacques Poulin’s masterpiece, this tender and perceptive tale explores the textures of solitude, compassion, language, fear, and the imagination. Meet Jim: a writer suffering from vivid dreams and bouts of writer’s block. Meet Mister Blue, a dignified and prophetic cat and Jim’s sole companion that spring on the Ile d’Orléans. That is, until the day they discover a copy of The Arabian Nights in a cave along the beach. Tinged with heartbreak as well as joy, Mister Blue is a novel of subtle shadows and emotions, of wide-open blue sky—a ballet of the possible. Born in the Beauce region of Québec, Jacques Poulin is the author of fourteen novels. Among his many honors are the Governor General’s Award, the 1990 and 2000 Molson Prize for the Arts, the Gilles-Corbeil Prize, and the France-Québec Prize. He lives in Québec City, Québec.
By the Governor General's Award–winning writer, a tender and perceptive novel exploring solitude, empathy, and the art of writing.

Arsenal Pulp Press The Tastes of Ayurveda
More Healthful, Healing Recipes for the Modern Ayurvedic

Amrita Sondhi
Ayurveda, the five thousand-year-old healing tradition from India linked to the development of yoga, is based on the concept that one’s physical, mental, and spiritual well-being comes from a number of sources, including a healthful diet based on one’s individual constitution. In this vegetarian cookbook, Amrita Sondhi, author of The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook (now in its fourth printing), provides new twists on traditional Ayurvedic recipes that are also inspired by the growing popularity of whole grains (quinoa, bulgur, and barley) and raw foods. The Ayurvedic diet is based on the concept of three “doshas”: vata (air), pitta (fire), and kapha (earth). Each of us has a primary dosha that we can strive to maintain at a healthy balance, but which can cause problems if excessive. The book includes a questionnaire so readers can determine their own primary dosha and then look for recipes that will help them to maintain or reduce it for optimal health. Recipes include modern interpretations of Indian cuisine (spinach feta and green chili samosas and mango and coconut kulfi), and Ayurvedic spins on vegetarian fare (sprouted barley rainbow pilaf and raw zucchini hummus). The book also includes yoga and breathing exercises that one can easily do at home or at work, full-color recipe photographs, and information on sprouting/fermenting techniques and backyard gardening. The Tastes of Ayurveda offers simple and delicious ways to achieve a more healthful and serene life. Amrita Sondhi is a yoga instructor, Ayurvedic cooking teacher, and the owner of Movement, a sustainable fiber clothing line.

From the WTO to the G20

Gord Hill
In this startling, politically astute graphic novel, Gord Hill (The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book) documents the history of capitalism as well as anti-capitalist and anti-globalization movements around the world, from the 1999 “Battle of Seattle” against the World Trade Organization to the Toronto G20 summit in 2010. The dramatic accounts go far to contradict the myths of violence perpetrated by authorities, and instead paint a vivid and historically accurate picture of activists who bring the crimes of governments and multinationals to the world’s attention. Gord Hill has been involved in indigenous peoples and anti-globalization movements since 1990.

Audacious and loud, The Dirt Chronicles is a thrashing, combustible homage to class rebellion.

Arsenal Pulp Press Crossings
Betty Lambert

First published in 1979, Crossings was revolutionary for its frank, unsettling portrayal of Vicky, an educated and intelligent woman in the 1960s who becomes embroiled in an emotionally abusive relationship with Nick, a violent ex-con. The book caused a furor upon publication and in fact was banned from some feminist bookstores until other writers came to its defense, including Jane Rule, who wrote: “This portrait of an artist as a young woman should stand as a testimony of the courage and cost of being a woman and a writer.” Crossings was playwright Betty Lambert’s only novel; she died in 1983.

Aunt Lute Books—Celebrating Thirty Years Borderlands / La Frontera
The New Mestiza Fourth Edition

Gloria Anzaldúa
Introduction by Norma Cantú and Aída Hurtado
Rooted in Gloria Anzaldúa’s experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenged, and continue to challenge, how we think about identity. Borderlands / La Frontera remaps our understanding of what a “border” is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new introduction by scholars Norma Cantú (University of Texas at San Antonio) and Aída Hurtado (University of California at Santa Cruz) as well as a revised critical bibliography. Gloria Anzaldúa was a Chicana-tejana-lesbian-feminist poet, theorist, and fiction writer from south Texas. She was the editor of the critical anthology Making Face/Making Soul: Haciendo Caras (Aunt Lute Books, 1990), co-editor of This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, and winner of the Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award. She taught creative writing, Chicano studies, and feminist studies at University of Texas, San Francisco State University, Vermont College of Norwich University, and University of California Santa Cruz. Anzaldúa passed away in 2004 and was honored around the world for shedding visionary light on the Chicana experience by receiving the National Association for Chicano Studies Scholar Award in 2005. Gloria was also posthumously awarded her doctoral degree in literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. A number of scholarships and book awards, including the Anzaldúa Scholar Activist Award and the Gloria E. Anzaldúa Award for Independent Scholars, are awarded in her name every year.

Behler Publications You Let Some Girl Beat You?
The Story of Ann Meyers Drysdale

Ann Meyers Drysdale with Joni Ravenna
Foreword by Julius “Dr. J” Erving
“Annie was one of the best players ever. I didn’t say male or female; I said ever.”—Bill Russell, former Boston Celtics player Ann Meyers Drysdale is one of the greatest stars in the history of basketball. But her rise wasn’t without controversy. Her 1979 NBA bid to play with the Indiana Pacers brought a barrage of criticism. But Ann simply wanted to play among the best. She had always competed with the guys, and she never let anyone keep her down. In You Let Some Girl Beat You? she shares her inspirational story for the first time. A female first in many categories, Meyers Drysdale was the first woman ever signed to a four-year athletic scholarship to UCLA, where she remains the only four-time Bruin basketball All American, male or female. Ann was also the only woman ever asked to compete in ABC Sports’ Superstars, pitting her against elite athletes like Mark Spitz, Joe Frazier, O.J. Simpson, and Mark Gastineau. After her athletic career Ann Meyers Drysdale went on to do color commentary on all the national stations. She also married Don Drysdale, legendary pitcher and announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, making them the first ever married couple enshrined in their respective sport’s Hall of Fame. Today Ann continues to break through barriers. She is the only female vice president in the NBA (she is vice president of the Phoenix Suns), and is also the general manager of the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, which has won two WNBA championships since she took over four years ago. The New York Times featured her prominently in a piece in August 2011 called “Pioneers Continue to Shepherd Women’s Basketball.” Time magazine recently named her one of the ten greatest female athletes of all time.

Behler Publications Heart Warriors
A Family Faces Congenital Heart Disease

Amanda Rose Adams

“Anyone who has ever suffered grief, in any form, will benefit from this passionately honest book. Grief is Amanda Adams’ constant companion, both her oppressor and her guide, as she gropes her way through a heart-rending experience.”—Kristin Henderson, author of While They’re at War: The True Story of American Families on the Homefront Five months pregnant, Amanda Rose Adams and her husband were given two abysmal choices regarding her pregnancy: force her baby to fight for his life through countless invasive and dangerous surgeries, or perform a late term abortion. Despite the fact that Liam was missing half his heart, Amanda chose life. Amanda’s emotional plate was full as she found herself redefining the usual expectations a mother has for her child. Instead of wondering where he’d go to college, she wondered if he would survive his first birthday. The eventual acceptance of Amanda’s grief helped her accept her new role as a powerful advocate. Over the course of seven years, together, as a family, Amanda and her husband helped Liam endure twelve heart surgeries, each time taking him to the brink of death. Heart Warriors is Amanda’s personal and emotional story that initiates a powerful dialogue about infant mortality and hope. Amanda Rose Adams is a “Heart Mom” and a powerful voice within the coronary heart disease (CHD) community by working closely with cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, and nurses from Harvard University, Baylor University, University of Southern California, University of Illinois, and CU Boulder Medical. She founded two CHD organizations, organizes medical conferences for Hypoplastic Right Hearts, attends medical advisory board meetings and national chapter presidents meetings for the Children’s Heart Foundation, and chaired the Congenital Heart Walk in Colorado. As a pioneer of CHD advocacy, she is also firmly rooted in the social network of CHD parents and survivors.
A family conquers grief and lost expectations raising their son born with half a heart while navigating complex medical challenges.

Bellevue Literary Press Inukshuk
Gregory Spatz

“A gifted writer.”—Alan Cheuse, NPR’s All Things Considered “[Spatz offers] what I look for in any book: people I can dream myself into and be remade in the process.”—Dorothy Allison, author of Trash and Bastard Out of Carolina “One of the most innovative and unusual fictional incarnations I’ve ever read of the persistent allure of Sir John Franklin’s final, fatal Arctic voyage. It’s a remarkable accomplishment.”—Russell Potter, author of Arctic Spectacles John Franklin has moved his fifteen-year-old son to the remote northern Canadian town of Houndstitch to make a new life together after his wife, Thomas’ mother, left them. Mourning her disappearance, John writes poetry and escapes into an affair, while Thomas, isolated and bullied, withdraws into a fantasy recreation of the infamous Victorian-era arctic expedition led by British explorer Sir John Franklin. Artistically gifted yet dangerously obsessive, Thomas gives himself scurvy so that he can sympathize with the characters in the film of his mind—and is almost lost himself. A poignant tale of the vulnerability of adolescence interspersed with powerfully evoked scenes of the legendary Franklin crew’s descent into despair, madness, and cannibalism on the Arctic tundra, Inukshuk offers readers a modern family drama as well as a compelling historical adventure. Gregory Spatz is the author, most recently, of the novel Fiddler’s Dream. His stories have appeared in many publications, including The New Yorker. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and recipient of a Washington State Book Award, he teaches at Eastern Washington University in Spokane and plays the fiddle in the JUNO-nominated bluegrass band John Reischman and the Jaybirds.
The gripping tale of a young man’s obsession with an Arctic explorer’s doomed quest to find the Northwest Passage.

Bellevue Literary Press Understories
Tim Horvath

“Horvath seems to be channeling, all at once, Borges and Calvino and Kevin Brockmeier. And it all works.”—Rebecca Makkai, author of The Borrower “‘The Understory’ is a terrific reach through history from the pre- and postNazi era in Germany up to the present. . . . This is a wonderful story, a first-rate creation by a fine writer.”—Bill Henderson, president and editor of Pushcart Press, in his judge’s statement for the Raymond Carver Short Story Award What if there was a city that consisted only of restaurants? What if Paul Gauguin had gone to Greenland instead of Tahiti? What if there was a field called Umbrology, the study of shadows, where physicists and shadow puppeteers worked side by side? Tim Horvath explores all of this and more as he blends the everyday and wondrous to contend with age-old themes of loss, identity, imagination, and the search for human connection. Full of speculative daring though firmly anchored in the tradition of realism, these stories easily stand in the company of contemporary masters such as Steven Millhauser and Jim Shepard. Whether making offhand references to Mystery Science Theater, providing a new perspective on Martin Heidegger’s philosophy and forays into Nazism, or following the imaginary travels of a library book, Horvath’s writing is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking. Tim Horvath teaches creative writing at Chester College of New England and Boston’s Grub Street writing center and works part-time as a counselor in a psychiatric hospital, primarily with autistic children and adolescents.

Bellevue Literary Press Mind Wars
Brain Science and the Military in the 21st Century

Jonathan D. Moreno
“There has been virtually no debate on the ethical questions raised by the brave new brain technologies. . . . The time to speak up is before the genie is out of the bottle.”—The Wall Street Journal “One of the most important thinkers describes the literally mind-boggling possibilities that modern brain science could present for national security.” —Lawrence J. Korb, former US Assistant Secretary of Defense The first book of its kind, Mind Wars covers the ethical dilemmas and bizarre history of cutting edge technology and neuroscience developed for military applications. As the author discusses the innovative Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the role of the intelligence community and countless university science departments in preparing the military and intelligence services for the twenty-first century, he also charts the future of national security. Fully updated and revised, this edition features new material on deep brain stimulation, neuro hormones, and enhanced interrogation. With in-depth discussions of “psyops” mind control experiments, drugs that erase both fear and the need to sleep, microchip brain implants and advanced prosthetics, supersoldiers and robot armies, Mind Wars may read like science fiction or the latest conspiracy thriller, but its subjects are very real and changing the course of modern warfare. Jonathan D. Moreno has been a senior staff member for three presidential advisory commissions and has served on a number of Pentagon advisory committees. He is an ethics professor at the University of Pennsylvania and the editor-in-chief of the Center for American Progress’ online magazine Science Progress.
Minority Report meets Dr. Strangelove in the true story of how neuroscience and related technologies are shaping national defense.

Biblioasis Malarky
Anakana Schofield

“Malarky spins and glitters like a coin flipped in the air—now searingly tragic, now blackly funny. The language is joyful and exuberant, the characters thoughtful and deeply felt. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.”—Annabel Lyon “Good writing and dark wit always excite me and they come together thrillingly in this book. It has a quiet grip on the strangeness of the interior and exterior worlds of love and politics. I delighted in the writing and the scope.” —Jenny Diski With Malarky, Anakana Schofield has delivered a character as extraordinary as Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage, and a domestic situation that rivals Samuel Beckett’s Endgame for its stagnant and sorrowful absurdity. Our Woman Philomena has just caught her son in the fields with another man. She’s been accosted by Red the Twit, who energetically discloses the infidelities—real, imagined, or in any event peculiar—of Our Woman’s husband. Swamped by a confusion she refuses to let overcome her, Philomena embarks on a rural odyssey that skirts madness, passes through grief, and returns her to the remarkable resilience of spirit that will make Our Woman the character of the decade. Schofield’s wicked humor is everywhere apparent, and Malarky, brilliantly drawn in the cadences of contemporary Ireland, is an absolutely peerless tour-de-force. Anakana Schofield is an Irish Canadian writer of fiction, drama, essays, and criticism. She contributes to the London Review of Books and The Globe and Mail (among others). She has lived in London, Dublin, and Vancouver; Malarky is her first novel.
What happens when a woman loves her boy so intensely she destroys him? A striking new voice in Irish fiction.

About Love
Three Stories by Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov
Translated by David Helwig Illustrated by Seth
“Absolutely wonderful.”—Francine Prose Written in France toward the end of his career, these stories are Anton Chekhov’s only attempt at the linked collection. “A Man in a Shell” is a grotesque Gogolian comedy; “Gooseberries,” a narrator’s impassioned response; and “About Love,” a poignant story of failed relationships. Translated by the impeccable David Helwig and fabulously illustrated by Seth, About Love is essential for any Chekhov enthusiast. David Helwig is the author of twenty volumes of fiction and fourteen volumes of poetry, an Officer of the Order of Canada, and former poet laureate of Prince Edward Island.

The Least Important Man
Alex Boyd
Sober and handsome, The Least Important Man is a book that asserts the dignity of poetry in everyday life. From “Uncertain, Texas”: A boy runs back, up the concrete, filled-in footprints of Socrates, says he saw Horseshoe crabs hustle slowly up the beach, an invading pile of German helmets. It’s always something new with this boy. He’s given a lemonade, asked to relax. Before, he removed a bolt that holds the universe together, said sorry about that.

BIS Publishers Ridiculous Design Rules Series
Anneloes van Gaalen
Anneloes van Gaalen never stops researching ridiculous rules in creative sectors and we are thankful for that because it produces more of these wonderful and best-selling Ridiculous Design Rules books, which make perfect gifts for creative people and those who love creative work. Five books have been published and reprinted so far, and BIS is now pleased to announce the next three new titles: Never Sleep with the Director (ridiculous film rules), Never Photograph People Eating (ridiculous photography rules), and Never Touch a Painting When It’s Wet (ridiculous art rules). These three fields of creativity will attract the interest of the general public, besides of course appealing to the professionals working in these sectors. In this series, “ridiculous” is a relative term, because what is nonsense for one can be an important guideline for another. These pleasing and educational books are not about laying down the law. For each of the fifty-one rules covered in each book, van Gaalen refers to quotes by famous fellow creators, who either think there is something to the rule or have made a personal variation on it. Whether you agree with them or not, the Ridiculous Design books sharpen your own thoughts about the rules and the assumed truths within the creative disciplines. Each rule is convincingly illustrated, with the illustrations either confirming or disproving the rule in question.

Bitter Lemon Press Nights of Awe
Harri Nykänen
Translated by Kristian London

“An outstanding plot, an entertaining read. Give us more Inspector Kafka novels from the far North.”—Fränkische Zeitung “Nykänen writes clever dialogue and his laconic humor is an enjoyment for every reader.”—Aamulehti “Unlike his Scandinavian contemporaries, Nykänen delights with an eccentric hero and a wonderful sense for dialogue. This is a tight thriller with an unexpected, explosive end.”—Hamburger Nachrichten During the period known as the Days of Awe that lead up to Yom Kippur, Ariel Kafka, inspector in the Violent Crime Unit of the Helsinki police and one of two Jewish policemen in Finland, is confronted with the most difficult case of his career. Two Arabs are killed near the capital and shortly after Kafka discovers two more bodies at an Iraqi-owned garage. Are these deaths evidence of gang warfare or international terrorism? When it transpires that an Israeli minister will make an unofficial visit to Helsinki, matters become truly complicated. The Finnish Security Police and Mossad all have a role to play and Kafka is on a trail that leads back to his youth. Harri Nykänen, born in Helsinki in 1953, was a well-known crime journalist before turning to fiction. He won the Finnish crime writing award The Clue in 1990 and in 2001. His fiction exposes the local underworld through the eyes of the criminal, the terrorist, and, most recently, from the point of view of an eccentric Helsinki police inspector.

Bitter Lemon Press The Tyrant
Jacques Chessex
Translated by Martin Sokolinsky
Winner of France’s most prestigious literary award, the Prix Goncourt. “Page after page of rich prose, reflecting the essence of life—a wonderful meditation on death.”—L’Express “A disturbing novel, a poignant juxtaposition of life and death, landscapes and short thoughts, obsessed by the father’s role in a son’s life. A novel to be devoured in one go.”—Le Monde “American readers of A Jew Must Die will quickly understand why Chessex was honored with the Goncourt. Read him for the historical context and for the sheer beauty of his prose.”—Booklist A haunting work, reminiscent of Albert Camus, that portrays with exquisite psychological detail the emotional crisis in the life of Jean Calmet, a young Swiss schoolteacher. As we watch the father’s cremation in the opening chapter, we sense that, even though his father’s body has been reduced to ashes, his spirit survives to haunt Jean. His father’s prodigious vitality and virility had crushed his family and ruined his son’s childhood. Even after his father’s death, Jean cannot be free. The parental ogre’s actions continue to suck Jean into a vortex of despair. Jacques Chessex, a giant of Swiss literature, won the Grand Prix de la langue française and was awarded the Grand Prix Jean Giono for his entire work. Bitter Lemon Press published his novels The Vampire of Ropraz and A Jew Must Die to high acclaim. He died in 2009 at age seventy-five.
Semi-autobiographical and Jacques Chessex’s bestselling novel to date, The Tyrant describes a tyrannical father’s destruction of a young teacher’s life.

Bitter Lemon Press No Sale
Patrick Conrad
Translated by Jonathan Lynn

Praise for Patrick Conrad’s Limousine: “Unremitting black humour.”—Literary Review “Exquisite, exciting, stomach-churning, sombre, gruesome, hilarious.”—De Morgen “The punishment has rarely been made to fit the crime with such horrifying literalism as in this novel.”—The Times For Victor Cox, a professor of film history, the Hollywood films noirs of the 1940s and 1950s are more real than his daily life. When his wife is found drowned, Cox is the first murder suspect. He falls in love with a student who looks like the 1920s film star Louise Brooks, but she disappears at a Belgian seaside resort. Smeared in lipstick in their hotel room are the words “No Sale,” the same words Elizabeth Taylor wrote on a mirror in Butterfield 8. Subsequently, a series of gruesome killings of young women, all modeled on violent deaths in films that he knows and loves, lead the police back to Cox, who starts to doubt his own sanity and innocence. With its stylish writing, pointed references to cinema classics, and blend of horror and humor, this is a powerful psychological thriller. It won the Diamond Bullet Award, the Edgar Award for Belgium. Patrick Conrad, born in 1945 in Antwerp, is a Flemish poet, screenwriter, film director, and novelist. He lives in Provence, in the south of France. Limousine, a previous novel, is being made into a film with Kelsey Grammar, to be released in 2012.
A series of young women’s murders, all based on violent deaths in classic Hollywood film noirs, baffles the Antwerp police.

Black Balloon Publishing Louise: Amended
Louise Krug

“A massive brain trauma robbed fashionable young Louise of the shallow currency she’d banked on all her life, and the resulting struggle is a page-turner in which a person’s very soul deepens before your eyes. Louise: Amended rewards a reader’s time—a must read.”—Mary Karr A beautiful young woman from Kansas is about to embark on the life of her dreams—California! Glossy journalism! French boyfriend!—only to suffer a brain bleed that collapses the right side of her body, leaving her with double vision, facial paralysis, and a dragging foot. An unflinching, wise, and darkly funny portrait of sudden disability and painstaking recovery, the memoir presents not only Louise’s perspective, but also the reaction of her loved ones—we see, in fictional interludes, what it must have been like for Louise’s boyfriend to bathe her, or for her mother to apply lipstick to her nearly immobile mouth. Challenging the notion that one person’s tragedy is a single person’s story, Louise: Amended depicts a dismantling—and rebirth—of an entire family. At age twenty-two, Louise Krug suffered a brain bleed and underwent an emergency craniotomy that disrupted her ability to walk, see, and move half her face. Now, six years later, Louise has astounded doctors and loved ones by recovering not only much of her vision and mobility, but a ferocious spirit and enviable grace. She currently lives with her husband Nick and daughter Olive in Lawrence, Kansas, where she’s a PhD candidate and teacher.
A beautiful young woman loses mobility of half her body and finds her way back.

Black Rose Books Community of Rights— Rights of Community
Daniel Fischlin and Martha Nandorfy
“This book is a major contribution to a new discourse on the notion of rights in relation to community.”—Roger Clark, former Secretary General of Amnesty International “This important book on the recovery of community rights shows how we lost our collective freedoms and how we can reclaim them.”—Vandana Shiva, author Why has the individual largely superseded community as the privileged focus of rights discourse? How have contemporary notions of community betrayed the very origins of the term in the name of exploitative economic and political practices? Is it possible to re-conceive rights discourse in ways that acknowledge the diverse communities from which they arise? Following on the dialogue they initiated in Eduardo Galeano: Through the Looking Glass and The Concise Guide to Global Human Rights, Daniel Fischlin and Martha Nandorfy examine the assumptions made about community and expose the impact they have on human rights debates. This final volume of the trilogy looks beyond the framework that bankrupts rights of any real meaning and thus reaffirms the power and agency of communities in the face of neo-liberal discourses of privatization. This book will be on the shelves of rights activists everywhere as an inspiration to their own work in building better communities. Daniel Fischlin and Martha Nandorfy both teach at the University of Guelph.
Examines community and human rights in a realistic way by talking with those most affected.

Roadblocks to Equality


BOA Editions, Ltd. The Innocent Party
Aimee Parkison

“Aimee Parkison most often begins softly, slowly stripping away each layer of social interaction to get at what is numinous and frightening and necessary about living in the real world. These are stories both about the difficulty and the intense suddenness of human connection, about the profound link that exists between being in love and being alone.”—Brian Evenson From “The Glass Girl”: On certain evenings in dark motels, she could transform her lip into the edge of the bottle, imagining her face was made of amber glass and the men paused above her only to take a drink of breath. Over the years, men drank and drank until there were only two sips left inside. They began sucking the air out of the glass that grew warm in the wrong places because of heat radiating off their hands. The men’s breath along with white feathers fell over autumn winds drifting through open windows. In this collection, Kurt Vonnegut Fiction Prize–winner Aimee Parkison’s characters struggle to understand what happens when the innocent party becomes the guilty party. With magical realist flair, secrets are aired with dirty laundry, but the stains never come clean. Carol Anshaw writes, “Aimee Parkison offers a distinct new voice to contemporary fiction. Her seductive stories explore childhood as a realm of sorrows, and reveal the afflictions of adults who emerge from this private geography.” Aimee Parkison has an MFA from Cornell University. She is associate professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she teaches creative writing.

Breakaway Books A Guide to Falling Down in Public
Finding Balance On And Off The Bicycle

Joe Kurmaskie

“David Sedaris trapped in the body of Lance Armstrong.”—Akron Beacon Journal The fifth book in the Metal Cowboy series hits the open road in high gear and never looks back. Whether he’s outsprinting African elephants and dictators in Zimbabwe or confounding Mexican freedom fighters in Copper Canyon with nothing more than broken Spanish, questionable geopolitical skills, and the magic of a bicycle, Joe “Metal Cowboy” Kurmaskie has mastered the painful art of falling down and the flat-out rush of getting back up again. He celebrates beautiful wrecks on five continents, the extraordinary people met along the way, and all the awe-inspiring, sweat-soaked miles ridden in between. This collection, a kaleidoscope of bicycle touring adventures told through exuberant stories spanning four decades and thirty countries, with many illustrations, embraces the absurdity of living at any speed, the fragility in each of us the world over, and simple wonders waiting just up the road.
The latest in the popular Metal Cowboy series of bicycle touring adventures.

Breakaway Books The Lola Papers
Marathons, Misadventures, and How I Became a Serious Runner

Amy Marxkors

“Amy Marxkors’ The Lola Papers are amazingly insightful and thought-provoking.” —John L. Parker, Jr., author of Once A Runner and Again to Carthage A simple request for training advice turned into a year of high-intensity coaching, unexpected adventure, unlikely friendships, and the realization that life, like the marathon, isn’t about the finish line. Through the journal of Lola, a nom de plume created to embody the spirit of all runners, Amy Marxkors chronicles her journey of self discovery as she decides to find out just how good she could be if she really tried. Humorous and endearingly candid, The Lola Papers reveals the universal truths and profound humanity hidden in the miles, showing that sometimes the greatest gift in life is getting more than what you bargained for. Each chapter in The Lola Papers serves a twofold purpose. On the topmost level, it is the direct account of a specific running experience—a training run, a blown workout, a solitary trail, or a grueling race. On a deeper level that reaches beyond running and into the soul of humanity, Lola’s stories are a reflection of the struggles and emotions of life, the supreme test of endurance. Dedication. Fatigue. Failure. Victory. Monotony. Adventure. Sorrow. Joy. Redemption. And the unshakeable determination to keep on going. The Lola Papers uses the sport of distance running as a lens to examine self, relationships, and the world around us.

Breakaway Books MoonWind at Large
Sailing Hither and Yon

Matthew Goldman

Matthew “Constant Waterman” Goldman and MoonWind constantly roam the waters of southeast New England, where these stories are centered. Each tale is short and sweet and possessed of an ineffable bemusement. MoonWind is a twenty-six foot sloop with an eight foot beam. This means that she was designed for close dancing, close encounters, moderate winds, six-day weekends, and numerous fabulous voyages. Her anchor holds her most of the time, her tiller seldom breaks in adverse conditions, and her bronze bell on the bulkhead rings only as her rail dips to the brine. For anyone who enjoys the art of sailing, join MoonWind and learn the exquisite relevance of the wind upon the water. Constant Waterman early in life acquired that pernicious habit of messing about in boats, for which the only cure is to move to the top of Mount Washington. Having rejected the landlubber lifestyle, he has managed to waste the past sixty years of his boyhood messing about in boats. The alternative, to grow up and work for a living, never did appeal to him.
Further adventures of the Constant Waterman, whose wry, joyful voice makes his insane love of boats quite contagious.

The Belgian Hammer


Bywater Books Leap
Z Egloff

Praise for Z Egloff’s debut novel, Verge: “Verge has heart and wit and intelligence.”—Emma Donoghue, author of Room “Verge is powerful, quirky, and fresh. . . . Z Egloff creates a rich, inclusive world and a heroine who’s one of the most endearingly fallible characters I’ve met in a long time.”—Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home “With Verge, Z Egloff enters the ring of fiction with the assurance of an old hand. . . . This is a talented writer.”—Carol Anshaw, author of Aquamarine Summer 1979. Rowan Marks is done with high school. Next comes college. But in between there’s a yawning gulf—the last carefree summer vacation. Rowen’s older brother Ben is smoking too much dope. Her best friend Danny is in love with her. And Catherine, the new girl in their small Ohio town, rubs her the wrong way. But that’s OK. Rowan can deal with it. Just when she thinks she’s got it all worked out, everything turns on its head. Catherine steals her heart, Danny falls out with her, and when Ben crashes the family car, the family secrets come tumbling out. All of a sudden, Rowan has a stark choice—is she going to grow up or give up? Z Egloff is an exciting new talent. Leap is an accomplished follow-up to her first novel, Verge, which won the Bywater Prize for Fiction and was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award.
1979 . . . summertime . . . Rowan Marks is coming of age in a sparkling collision of sex and confusion.

Lucy Jane Bledsoe

Praise for Working Parts: “To witness this wonderfully original character find renewal in a previously alien landscape makes for a liberating and joyous excursion in reading.” —San Francisco Chronicle “Bledsoe’s funny and sad, moving and thoughtful, smoothly written and eminently enjoyable first novel may prove to be her breakthrough.”—Booklist “Working Parts is fresh, engaging, witty, and deft.”—Felice Picano Lori is an ace bicycle mechanic.

Unprepared for the emotional toll their pact brings, the friends struggle with changing their lives and with each other.

Chin Music Press Subduction
Todd Shimoda
Art by L.J.C. Shimoda
“Shimoda is a consummate storyteller with a clean, relaxed, graceful style.” —Shelf Awareness Subduction is a timely, electrifying thriller set on a tiny, earthquake-plagued island. Endo, a young physician unjustly charged with a patient’s death, is banished to the island to care for the few remaining elderly residents. Determined to remain on their crumbling island and resuscitate their defunct fishing industry, the aging islanders plot against all outsiders. After a mysterious death and attacks on Endo and fellow newcomers, he discovers why the islanders don’t wish to leave: years ago, jealousies, lust, and violence ripped apart their lives, and the wounds haven’t healed. The aftershocks of the islanders’ past, as well as Endo’s own troubled history, replay violently in the present just as a massive earthquake strikes. Exquisitely designed with L.J.C. Shimoda’s artwork throughout, Subduction also features a sixteen-page illustrated retelling of the myth of Kashima, the god who controls a giant, thrashing catfish that causes earthquakes. The myth offers clues to the mysterious motives of the island’s denizens. Todd Shimoda won the 2010 Elliot Cades Award for Literature from the Hawai’i Literary Arts Council. His previous novel Oh! was an NPR Best Summer Read. The Fourth Treasure was translated into six languages and named a notable book by the Kiriyama Prize. L.J.C. Shimoda is an accomplished artist, illustrator, and book designer. Her artwork and illustrations have appeared in her husband Todd Shimoda’s novels 365 Views of Mt. Fuji, The Fourth Treasure, and Oh!
Art and narrative collide in this psychological thriller set around mysterious earthquakes off Japan’s coast.

Cinco Puntos Press Everything Begins and Ends at the Kentucky Club
Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Benjamin Alire Sáenz’s stories reveal how all borders—real, imagined, sexual, human, the line between dark and light, addict and straight—entangle those who live on either side. Take, for instance, the Kentucky Club on Avenida Juárez two blocks south of the Rio Grande. It’s a touchstone for each of Sáenz’s stories. His characters walk by, they might go in for a drink or to score, or they might just stay there for a while and let their story be told. Sáenz knows that the Kentucky Club, like special watering holes in all cities, is the contrary to borders. It welcomes Spanish and English, Mexicans and gringos, poor and rich, gay and straight, drug addicts and drunks, laughter and sadness, and even despair. It’s a place of rich history and good drinks and cold beer and a long polished mahogany bar. Some days it smells like piss. “I’m going home to the other side.” That’s a strange statement, but you hear it all the time at the Kentucky Club. Benjamin Alire Sáenz is a highly regarded writer of fiction, poetry, and children’s literature. Like these stories, his writing crosses borders and lands in our collective psyche. Poets & Writers Magazine named him one of the fifty most inspiring writers in the world. He’s been a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and PEN Center’s prestigious award for young adult fiction.

Cinco Puntos Press That Mad Game
Growing Up in a Warzone:  An Anthology of Essays from Around the Globe

Edited by J.L. Powers
What’s it like to grow up during war? To be a victim of violence or exiled from your homeland, culture, family, and even your own memories? When America’s talking heads talk about war, children and teenagers are often the forgotten part of the story. Yet who can forget images of the Vietnam “baby lift,” when Amer-Asian children were flown out of Vietnam to be adopted by Americans? Who can forget the horror of learning that Iranian children were sent on suicide missions to clear landmines? Who wasn’t captivated by stories of the “lost boys” of Sudan, traveling thousands of miles alone through the desert, seeking shelter and safety? From the cartel-terrorized streets of Juárez to the bombed-out cities of Bosnia to Afghanistan under the Taliban, from Nazi-occupied Holland to the middle-class American home of a Vietnam vet, this collection of personal and narrative essays explores both the universal and particular experiences of children and teenagers who came of age during a time of war. J.L. Powers is the editor of Labor Pains and Birth Stories and the author of two young adult novels, most recently This Thing Called the Future, an alternative fantasy set in post-apartheid South Africa. She began collecting essays on children and war while pregnant with her first child and says, “The experience was both painful and uplifting, not unlike giving birth. The most memorable aspect of these essays is their stark portrayal of both survival and hope in the midst of incredible suffering.”
Coming of age during a time of war: fighting, dying, surviving. First-person accounts from around the globe.

City Lights Publishers I Must Resist
Bayard Rustin’s Life in Letters

Bayard Rustin
Edited with an introduction by Michael G. Long
Bayard Rustin has been called the “lost prophet” of the civil rights movement. A master strategist and tireless activist, he is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. He brought Gandhi’s protest techniques to the American civil rights movement and played a deeply influential role in the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., helping to mold him into an international symbol of nonviolence. Despite these achievements, Rustin often remained in the background. As a gay man convicted of a “morals charge,” and as a socialist with a background in the Communist Party, he was well aware of the possibility that opponents would use him as fodder in their denunciations of the movement. He was silenced, threatened, arrested, beaten, imprisoned, and fired from important leadership positions, largely because he was an openly gay man in a fiercely homophobic era. Here we have Rustin in his own words, a collection of over 150 of his letters, some of them breathtakingly personal, remarkable for the insights they offer. His correspondents include the major progressives of his day as well as family and friends, and each letter is prefaced by a short, informative introduction. Bayard Rustin stands at the confluence of the great struggles for civil, legal, and human rights. In a nation still torn by racial hatred and violence, bigotry against homosexuals, and extraordinary divides between rich and poor, his eloquent voice is still essential today.
Bayard Rustin’s life story told in his own words through his intimate correspondence, published on the centennial of his birth.

How Social Media are Changing Politics,  Threatening Big Brands, and Killing Traditional Media

Rory O’Connor
“Rory O’Connor is one of the smartest media guys around. He knows who’s spinning, who’s pandering, and who’s putting money in his own pocket at the expense of logic, reason, and the public good.”—Michael Wolff, Vanity Fair media critic There’s a revolution going on, as ever-accelerating developments in digital information technologies change nearly every aspect of how we live, work, play, do business, and engage in politics. Share and share alike—the numbers say it all as billions of people worldwide flock to online media and use social networks to discover and spread news and information. In the process, ever-growing networks of “ordinary people” are using these powerful new tools to trim the influence long held by Big Business, Big Government, and Big Media. No longer just passive recipients, participants in social networks now regularly make and break news while organizing civic and political actions that bypass censors, outpace traditional media, attract massive audiences, and influence the rise and fall of brands, industries, politicians, and even governments. In this insider’s look at how social media are transforming our world, Rory O’Connor explains the trends and explores what tech visionaries, media makers, political advisers, and businesspeople are saying about the meteoric rise of the various social networks of friends and followers, and what they bode for our future. Rory O’Connor, co-founder of, is the author of Shock Jocks: Hate Speech & Talk Radio. He has won two Emmys and a George Orwell Award, among many other honors.

City Lights Publishers The Historic Unfulfilled Promise
Howard Zinn
Introduction by Noam Chomsky Foreword by Matthew Rothschild
Howard Zinn’s life and work are the stuff of legend. His People’s History of the United States has sold over two million copies and has altered how we see and teach history. A hero in word and deed, Zinn’s views on freedom, fairness, history, democracy, and our own human potential are educational and transformative. In few places is the genius of his voice more crystallized and accessible than in the dozens of articles he penned for The Progressive magazine from 1980 to 2009, offered together here in book form for the first time. Whether critiquing the Barack Obama White House, the sorry state of US government and politics, the tragic futility of US military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq, or the plight of working people in an economy rigged to benefit the rich and powerful, Zinn’s historical clarity, unflappable optimism, and unshakable questions reverberate throughout The Historic Unfulfilled Promise: “Have our political leaders gone mad?” “What kind of country do we want to live in?” “What is national security?” “Do we have a right to occupy a country when the people of that country obviously do not want us there?” “Is not war itself terrorism?” “Should we not begin to consider all children, everywhere, as our own?” “Has the will of the people been followed?” The Historic Unfulfilled Promise is a genuine work of conscience, rich in ideas, charged with energy; an invaluable introduction for the uninitiated and a must-have for Zinn’s fans.
Howard Zinn’s articles for The Progressive (1980–2009) offer timeless analysis and advocacy for freedom, democracy, and social change in the United States. Marketing Plans

City Lights Publishers The Meaning of Freedom
And Other Difficult Dialogues

Angela Y. Davis
Introduction by Robin D.G. Kelley
“Davis’ arguments for justice are formidable. . . . The power of her historical insights and the sweetness of her dream cannot be denied.”—The New York Times What is the meaning of freedom? Angela Y. Davis’ life and work have been dedicated to examining this fundamental question and to ending all forms of oppression that deny people their political, cultural, and sexual freedom. In this collection of twelve searing, previously unpublished speeches, Davis confronts the interconnected issues of power, race, gender, class, incarceration, conservatism, and the ongoing need for social change in the United States. With her characteristic brilliance, historical insight, and penetrating analysis, Davis addresses examples of institutional injustice and explores the radical notion of freedom as a collective striving for real democracy—not a thing granted by the state, law, proclamation, or policy, but a participatory social process, rooted in difficult dialogues, that demands new ways of thinking and being. “It is not too much,” writes Robin D.G. Kelly in the introduction, “to call her one of the world’s leading philosophers of freedom.” The Meaning of Freedom articulates a bold vision of the society we need to build and the path to get there. This is her only book of speeches and her first full-length book since Are Prisons Obsolete? (2003). Angela Y. Davis is professor emerita at the University of California and author of eight books. She is a much sought after public speaker and an internationally known advocate for social justice. Robin D.G. Kelley is the author of many books and a professor at the University of Southern California.

City Lights Publishers Advice for Lovers
City Lights Spotlight #7

Julian Talamantez Brolaski
Inspired by Ovid’s instructional Ars Amatoria, with overtones of Renaissance sonnet cycles, Advice for Lovers is a highly wrought volume of poems. Intricately formal but saucy and contemporary in diction, Advice for Lovers walks a fine line between the anything-goes orthography of the Elizabethans and the shifting etymologies of James Joyce. Sexy, kinky, disquieting, Advice for Lovers blazes an erotic trail into the twenty-first century. Author of gowanus atropolis (2011) and editor at Aufgabe and Litmus Press, Julian Talamantez Brolaski studied with Nathaniel Mackey, Elizabeth Willis, and Robert Hass. Xe rejects gendered pronouns and lives in Brooklyn, New York, and teaches at The New School.

Coach House Books Autobiography of Childhood
Sina Queyras

“Queyras’ novel scores the jagged incisions of childhood. How her characters escape or embrace or succumb to the damage, she manages through an exquisite prose that cannot comfort them, nor ease us. Yet we cannot help but be held by the language.”—Dionne Brand Five siblings, all haunted by the death of a brother in their youth. One winter day, when another of them will be taken by cancer. Guddy is struggling to fly across the continent in a snowstorm to see her sister while she still can. Jerry, avoiding the phone, hits the highway, driving as fast as he can away from his back pain and his son. Bjarne, just back from six years on the streets, is watching Judge Judy, trying to quiet the voices in his head. Annie is cleaning her mother’s trailer and ducking her questions. And then there’s Therese, trying to forgive them all before it’s too late. As all five are forced to react—or to choose to not react—to the news of Therese’s impending death, their actions weave a nuanced portrait of a family, of the devastating reach of childhood grief. What if thinking is all we have at the end of the day? This transcendent first novel from award-winning poet Sina Queyras tells the story of childhood by recreating the mind at work grappling with it: noticing, reaching, loving, and flailing. Sina Queyras’ last collection of poetry, Expressway, was nominated for a Governor General’s Award and won Gold at the National Magazine Awards. Her previous collection Lemon Hound won a Lambda Award and the Pat Lowther Award, and she is the winner of the 2012 Friends of Literature Award. She is a blogger for Harriet, the Poetry Foundation’s blog.
An acclaimed poet’s debut grapples with loss and the legacy of childhood grief as five siblings face one sister’s death.

Coach House Books Eye Lake
Tristan Hughes

“Hughes is a very good writer, if ‘good writing’ has to do with precision, eloquence, beauty, and passionately held belief.”—Times Literary Supplement Welcome to Crooked River, population 2,851 and falling. Eli has lived in Crooked River his whole life, ever since he was born in the dead of winter with the cord wrapped around his neck nearly thirty years ago, and he knows better than anyone about that shrinking number. His father, uncle, and grandmother have all died, he didn’t know his mother, and his grandfather, Clarence, founder of the town and eccentric builder of hotels and a now-underwater castle, walked to the river one day and never returned. Eli’s childhood best friend, George, went missing, too, when they were kids, around the time his dad started going a little bonkers, and George was never seen again. Eli’s always been obsessed with Clarence and George’s disappearances. Now, while the town half-heartedly celebrates its centennial and the river, long ago diverted to make way for a mine, reclaims its original path, Eye Lake is vanishing day by day. As new tensions in town rise and the lake’s water level drops, Clarence’s castle—and his many secrets—begin to surface. But when another young boy goes missing, Eli’s past and present collide. Tristan Hughes is the author of three previous books: The Tower, Send My Cold Bones Home, and Revenant. He was the winner of the 2002 Rhys Davies Short Story Award. He lives in Wales.
Crooked River: the population is falling and so is the water level, uncovering the town’s, and Eli’s, tragic secrets.

Coach House Books Maintenance
Rob Benvie

“A great novel that captures the loneliness and absurdity of the 1990s suburban experience. Dense and imaginative writing that often borders on the uncomfortable, but the edge of your seat is the best place to be.”—Joel Plaskett It is the summer of 1999, and the Sweltham family is leading an ordinary suburban existence. Former childhood volleyball champ Parker crisscrosses the continent as a sales rep for DynaFlex Sporting Goods, while his wife, Trixie, serves as the managing editor of Record of Truth, an unsuccessful journal for genocide studies. Their son Owen has just returned from juvenile prison to the vast horrors of high school. Heath, Parker’s brother, has vowed to cut down on the weed and fried chicken for a regimen of self-improvement, obeying his AbDestroyer routine and crafting a screenplay that will dismantle the universe. All appears normal. Yet in the summer’s swelter, as Y2K anxiety grows, grim truths are revealed. Trixie is rocked by the discovery of an undiagnosable cerebral defect, rendering her toils at the journal trivial. Cataloging crunches and ignoring his Gulf War vet ex-girlfriend, Heath fights to reconcile confusions of the past with hopes for a meaningful future. Owen’s religious fixations feed his Robitussin binges and fantasies of self-destruction. And while peddling his wares at the annual Empowerment Expo, Parker forges an uneasy friendship with Adam, an African political refugee harboring his own violent aspirations. Sprawling yet scalpel-sharp, Maintenance, like some twenty-first-century White Noise, takes the suburbs to a geography you won’t quite recognize. Rob Benvie has recorded and performed with the rock bands Thrush Hermit, Camouflage Nights, and The Dears. He is the author of the novel Safety of War.
Suburban malaise goes postal in this off-kilter look at modern life and our need to make a mark upon it.

Coach House Books Divide and Rule
Walid Bitar
“The empire’s missing links are found deep in this poet’s ever-astonishing states of multiple consciousness—astutely attuned to the pressured, violent, mass conformities forced upon us—brilliantly formed into poems as ambitious and achieved as any written in the English language today.”—Lawrence Joseph In these dramatic monologues, Walid Bitar delivers variations on the theme of power: in politics, in the subjugation and abuse of other cultures, and in our divided selves. Using satire, parody, koan, and riddle, Divide and Rule struggles with the mendacity of language and identity. They have no maps. Ours, I’ll redraw. Isn’t itself, their neck of the woods, needs a rest—something more than a nap, and less than death, though death wouldn’t hurt. Walid Bitar’s poetry collections include 2 Guys on Holy Land, Bastardi Puri, and The Empire’s Missing Links. He was born in Beirut and lives in Toronto, Ontario.

New Theatre represents a lively foray into spaces geographical and utopian that investigate the process of meaning. Coolly cerebral poems about Vladimir Ilyich Lenin’s later life muse on power and identity, while an intimate autobiographical long poem counterpoints several quieter, equally surprising pieces that spike and bloom. Autumn. The sky streaked with silk parachutes or by tears. A sparkling epidemic. I think if the world truly tore in half it would seep blue. Susan Steudel is the recipient of several awards for her poetry, including a Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award for emerging artist. New Theatre is her first book.

Five Good Ideas


Coffee House Press The Last Warner Woman
Kei Miller

“Miller is a name to watch.”—The Independent “This is magical, lyrical, spellbinding writing.”—Granta Adamine Bustamante is born in one of Jamaica’s last leper colonies. When Adamine grows up, she discovers she has the gift of “warning”: the power to protect, inspire, and terrify. But when she is sent to live in England, her prophecies of impending disaster are met with a different kind of fear—people think she is insane and lock her away in a mental hospital. Now an older woman, the spirited Adamine wants to tell her story. But she must wrestle for the truth with the mysterious “Mr. Writer Man,” who has a tale of his own to share, one that will cast Adamine’s life in an entirely new light. In a story about magic and migration, stories and storytelling, and the New and Old Worlds, we discover it is never one person who owns a story or has the right to tell it. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1978, Kei Miller is the author of The Same Earth, winner of the Una Marson Prize for Literature; and Fear of Stones, which was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book. His most recent poetry collection has been shortlisted for the Jonathan Llewellyn Rhys Prize, the Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature, and the Scottish Book of the Year Award. In 2008 he was an International Writing Fellow at the University of Iowa. Miller currently divides his time between Jamaica and Scotland.
The American debut of a Caribbean literary talent often compared to Orange Prize winner Andrea Levy and Alexander McCall Smith.

Coffee House Press Half In Shade
Family, Photography, and Fate

Judith Kitchen

“Judith Kitchen is a gifted writer of immense humanity, grace, and depth. Travel with her, trusting where she takes you.”—Naomi Shihab Nye “Half in Shade is mysterious and brave, written with wit, humor, stabbing insight, and in prose that reverberates long after you turn the last page.” —Dinah Lenney When Judith Kitchen discovered boxes of family photographs in her mother’s closet, it sparked curiosity and speculation. Piecing together her memories with the physical evidence in the photographs, Kitchen explores the gray areas between the present and the past, family and self, certainty and uncertainty. The result is a lyrical, ennobling anatomy of a heritage, family, motherdaughter relationships, and the recovery from an illness that captures with precision the forces of the heart and mind when “none of us knows what lies beyond the moment, outside the frame.” Judith Kitchen is the award-winning author of several works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Her work has won the Lillian Fairchild Award, a Pushcart Prize, and the S. Mariella Gable Fiction Prize. She has served as judge for the AWP Nonfiction Award, the Pushcart Prize in poetry, the Oregon Book Award, and the Bush Foundation fellowships, among others. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, Kitchen lives in Port Townsend, Washington, and serves on the faculty and as codirector of the Rainier Writing Workshop at Pacific Lutheran University.
A treasure trove of lost family photographs illuminates a singular perspective on family, memory, and history.

Coffee House Press Windeye
Brian Evenson

“Brian Evenson is one of the treasures of American story writing, a true successor both to the generation of Coover, Barthelme, Hawkes and Co., but also to Edgar Allan Poe.”—Jonathan Lethem A metal band stranded on a tropical island, a king’s servant hypnotized by his horse, a magician’s disappearing act gone awry—the characters in these stories live as interlopers in a world shaped by mysterious disappearances and unfathomable discrepancies between the real and imagined. Brian Evenson, master of “literary horror,” presents his most far-ranging collection to date, exploring how humans can persist in an increasingly unreal world. Haunting, gripping, and psychologically fierce, these tales illuminate a dark and unsettling side of humanity. Praised by Peter Straub for going “furthest out on the sheerest, least sheltered narrative precipice,” Brian Evenson is the author of ten books of fiction. He has been a finalist for the Edgar Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the World Fantasy Award, and the winner of the International Horror Guild Award, the American Library Association’s award for Best Horror Novel, and one of Time Out New York’s top books. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and three O. Henry Prizes, including one for the title story in Windeye, Evenson lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where he directs Brown University’s literary arts program.
Cormac McCarthy meets The Twilight Zone. A modern-day Nathaniel Hawthorne, Brian Evenson is a writer people will claim they discovered early.

Coffee House Press Boarded Windows
Dylan Hicks

“Do yourself a favor and read this smart, tender book. The characters will haunt you with their longing and inspire you with their sweet, caustic wit. Dylan Hicks knows his music and his prose is a song in itself.”—Sam Lipsyte “A continually hilarious, hopes-dashed account of an indelible American character: the con man.”—Greil Marcus Wade Salem is a charismatic aesthete, drug dealer, and journeyman country musician. He’s also a complicated father figure to this novel’s narrator, whose cloudy childhood becomes both clearer and more confusing through Wade’s stories, jokes, and lectures. Through the eyes of a keenly observant, underemployed record collector, Wade emerges as a sly, disruptive force, at once seductive and maddening. Shifting between flashbacks from the seventies and nineties, Boarded Windows is a postmodern orphan story that explores the fallibility of memory and the weight of our social and cultural inheritance. Stylistically layered and searchingly lonesome, Dylan Hicks’ debut novel captures the music and mood of the fading embers of America’s boomer counterculture.

Common Courage Press Getting Steamed to Overcome Corporatism
Build It Together to Win

Ralph Nader
Ralph Nader’s Getting Steamed will make you repeat that phrase from the movie Network: “I’m as mad as Hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!” His compendium of corporate crime, greed, and exploitation of honest people everywhere will raise your temperature—to the boiling point. Among Nader’s stories: • • • • • Health insurance companies working to stop doctors from delivering care Nuclear power companies demanding loan guarantees out of your wallet Pharmaceutical companies putting your life on the line Bank bailouts galore Corporate profits soaring on the backs of Wal-Mart wages

Nader knows from his own experience that getting you steamed will work. As he writes: “Our democracy is in decay, with no end in sight unless there is a sustained response from an aroused citizenry to stop the corporatists from blocking so many proven solutions for our country’s problems. First, we need to raise our expectations to realistically attainable levels so we can believe that a better country is possible soon. Back in the 1950s I, like many others in that era, lost several friends and classmates to motor vehicle crashes—horrific fatalities and injuries. I learned the truth about the auto industry bosses, who, in favor of styling priorities, restrained their safety engineers and scientists from installing long-known safety devices like seat belts, better brakes and tires, collapsible steering columns, and interior padding. And, I got steamed.” As Jim Hightower put it, you won’t read and weep; you’ll read and leap.

Photos of Atlanta by Martin Parr

Martin Parr
In this volume, which accompanies a massive exhibition scheduled for July 2012 at the High Museum of Art of Atlanta, Martin Parr explores his fascination with concepts such as leisure, consumption, communication, and how these themes play out in America. Martin Parr was born in Britain in 1952. Parr’s early works in the 1970s are solely black and white photography, but after 1980 he switched to color film and continued his focus in color photography. His inspiration for color photography originated from the American photo-documentarists. In 1994 Parr became a member of Magnum Photographic Corporation.

Contrasto Uncle Charlie
Marc Asnin

Uncle Charlie was my favorite uncle. He’s my godfather. My grandfather was a grade-A hood, hustling, pimping women, abusive. My mother got out, but Uncle Charlie never did. My mother made sure I had an education. I went to art school. In 1981, I started realizing that my uncle was an interesting person to take pictures of, and it became my family album.
Charlie is fifty-one years old now and his life is a mess. He blames his kids, he blames his ex-wife, he blames my mother—he thinks he is the ultimate victim. I know enough about his life to know how he got there, but emotionally I can’t cut him any slack. I know it’s because he had an abusive childhood, but that doesn’t give you the right to fuck up your kids. Still, you know, I feel for him. He’ll always be my Uncle Charlie.

Marc Asnin has been photographing his Uncle Charlie for eleven years. Charlie and his five children (Charles, Joe, Brian, Mary, and Jamie) lived together in Bushwick, Brooklyn. This is the story of his tattos, his guns, his unemployment, his illness, his poverty, and his drug problems.

Contrasto Francesca Woodman
The Roman Years Between Skin and Films

Isabella Pedicini

This volume analyzes, from a new and innovative point of view, the life and works of Francesca Woodman through the photographs and writings that belong to her Roman sojourn. A precocious artist, a border-line personality between the American culture and the Italian culture, Francesca Woodman reaches the acme of her artistic parable in Rome that, to her, is the place and the moment where her aesthetics and style are developed to the fullest. By tracing back the author’s Roman itineraries and by gathering the stories told by her friends, this study reconstructs Woodman’s most significant encounters that happened between the Maldoror bookshop in Via del Parione and the ateliers of the Nuova Scuola Romana at the ex Pastificio Cerere in San Lorenzo. Through the writings and accounts recorded over a long period of research, this book highlights the echoes and references to Surrealism that can be found in Francesca Woodman’s photos; her use of the body as a proper language; and the topic of the metamorphosis as a sequel of life, where death is no longer seen as a final lap. In her pictures the observer discretely approaches the images and timidly takes part in the private and precious conversation that takes place inside each shot. This essay shows a new and intimate side of this great photographer, taking the reader by the hand through an intimate journey where words and images intertwine to trace the contours of Francesca Woodman’s universe. Isabella Pedicini was born in Benevento, Italy, in 1983. A journalist and a writer, she moved to Rome where she graduated, first with a BA and then with an MA, in art history at La Sapienza University. She collaborates on a regular basis with the gallery book shop “Il Museo del Louvre” and she writes for Artribune, a magazine of contemporary art.

The Black Figure Is Waiting for the White


Copper Canyon Press On the Spectrum of Possible Deaths
Lucia Perillo

“Perillo’s poetic persona is funny, tough, bold, smart, and righteous. A spellbinding storyteller and a poet who makes the demands of the form seem as natural as a handshake, she pulls readers into the beat and whirl of her slyly devastating descriptions.”—Booklist “Whoever told you poetry isn’t for everyone hasn’t read Lucia Perillo. She writes accessible, often funny poems that border on the profane.”—Time Out New York The poetry of Lucia Perillo is fierce, tragicomic, and contrarian, with subjects ranging from coyotes and Scotch broom to local elections and family history. Formally braided, Perillo gathers strands of the mythic and mundane, of media and daily life, as she faces the treachery of illness and draws readers into poems rich in image and story. When you spend many hours alone in a room you have more than the usual chances to disgust yourself— this is the problem of the body, not that it is mortal but that it is mortifying. When we were young they taught us do not touch it, but who can keep from touching it, from scratching off the juicy scab? Today I bit a thick hangnail and thought of Schneebaum, who walked four days into the jungle and stayed for the kindness of the tribe— who would have thought that cannibals would be so tender? Lucia Perillo’s Inseminating the Elephant (Copper Canyon Press, 2009) was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and received the Bobbitt award from the Library of Congress. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

Copper Canyon Press When My Brother Was an Aztec
Natalie Diaz

“I write hungry sentences,” Natalie Diaz once explained in an interview, “because they want more and more lyricism and imagery to satisfy them.” This debut collection is a fast-paced tour of Mojave life and family narrative: A sister fights for or against a brother on meth, and everyone from Antigone, Houdini, Huitzilopochtli, and Jesus is invoked and invited to hash it out. These darkly humorous poems illuminate far corners of the heart, revealing teeth, tails, and more than a few dreams. I watched a lion eat a man like a piece of fruit, peel tendons from fascia like pith from rind, then lick the sweet meat from its hard core of bones. The man had earned this feast and his own deliciousness by ringing a stick against the lion’s cage, calling out Here, Kitty Kitty, Meow! With one swipe of a paw much like a catcher’s mitt with fangs, the lion pulled the man into the cage, rattling his skeleton against the metal bars. The lion didn’t want to do it— He didn’t want to eat the man like a piece of fruit and he told the crowd this: I only wanted some goddamn sleep . . .

Michael Dickman and Matthew Dickman
“Their verse . . . is strikingly different. Michael’s poems are interior, fragmentary, and austere, often stripped down to single-word lines; they seethe with incipient violence. Matthew’s are effusive, ecstatic, and all-embracing.” —The New Yorker Identical twins Michael and Matthew Dickman once invented their own language. Now they have invented an exhilarating book of poem-plays about the fifty states. Pointed, comic, and surreal, these one-page vignettes feature unusual staging and an eclectic cast of characters—landforms, lobsters, and historical figures including Duke Ellington, Sacajawea, Judy Garland, and Kenneth Koch, the avant-garde spirit informing this book. “Lucky in Kansas” Judy Garland: This is always the worst part Tin Man: The coming back Judy Garland: Yes, it fucking sucks, it’s depressing as shit The Lion: Well, we’re lucky to still be employed at this farm Straw Man: I wouldn’t call it lucky The Lion: We were lucky to get back Straw Man: That’s not really lucky either I don’t think you know what lucky means Judy Garland: It’s funny what you miss Tin Man: The running Judy Garland: The flying Tin Man: The flying monkeys Judy Garland: The beautiful flying monkeys above the endless emeralds the unbelievably green world Michael Dickman and Matthew Dickman are identical twins who were born and raised in Portland, Oregon.

Copper Canyon Press Further Adventures in Monochrome
John Yau

“Yau tweaks and twists language to express a painful comic vision in which sensual vividness combines with fierce despair.”—Booklist John Yau engages art criticism, social theory, and syntactical dexterity to confront the problems of aging, meaning, and identity. Insisting that “True poets and artists know where language ends, which is why they go there,” Yau presses against the limits of language, creating poems that are at once cryptic, playful, and insightful. Included in its entirety is his groundbreaking serial poem, “Genghis Chan: Private Eye,” and a new series invoking the monochromatic painter Yves Klein. From “Exhibits”: Can you name which country uses selective amnesia to determine its foreign policy? . Money has become a vast dirty sea rolling over the land. . Money has become a UFO because it is the only thing that lacks controversy. . Money rhymes with algae. . Do you swear to tell the whole truth filled with nothing but reasonable lies? . Signing up for Free Membership works best in a failing economy. . In case of emergency, please vacuum the premises. . I used to be thorough, now I am just comprehensive . . . John Yau is the author of fifty books of poetry, fiction, and criticism. He is the arts editor of The Brooklyn Rail and teaches art criticism at Mason Gross School of the Arts and Rutgers University. He lives in the Garment District neighborhood in New York City.

Copper Canyon Press After the Point of No Return
David Wagoner
“Wagoner’s words are a living link to the world, enacting it so vitally that they feel like natural facts.”—The Seattle Times In his twenty-fourth book of poetry, David Wagoner reflects on youth, love, regret, and expectation versus reality. Here a master writes at top form, backdropped by life’s curious moments and imagining Jesus as an untidy roommate or considering our final destination in “Beginner’s Guide to Death.” “After the Point of No Return” After that moment when you’ve lost all reason for going back where you started, when going ahead is no longer a Yes or No, but a matter of fact, you’ll need to weigh, on the one hand, what will seem, on the other, almost nothing against something slightly more than nothing and must choose again and again, at points of fewer and fewer chances to guess, when and which way to turn. That’s when you might stop thinking about stars and storm clouds, the direction of wind, the difference between rain and snow, the time of day or the lay of the land, about which trees mean water, which birds know what you need to know before it’s too late, or what’s right here under your feet, no longer able to tell you where it was you thought you had to go. David Wagoner is the author of two dozen books of poetry and ten novels. A longtime teacher at University of Washington, he was the editor at Poetry Northwest. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
“David Wagoner’s study of American nostalgias is as eloquent as that of James Wright.”—Harold Bloom Marketing Plans

Copper Canyon Press Selected Poems
Robert Bringhurst

“Robert Bringhurst may well be the poet we have all been waiting for, one who can reclaim for poetry the dignity, wit, brilliance, and wisdom it has recently appeared to have mislaid. He is without doubt a major poet, not only in the context of Canadian letters, but in that of all writing of our time.”—Poetry Inspired by Eastern, pre-Socratic, and Native American art and ideas, Robert Bringhurst’s Selected Poems gathers work from fifteen volumes and embodies music, ecology, mythology, and philosophy. As he writes, “When you think intensely and beautifully, something happens.” Bringhurst’s passion for books and words extends to the design and typography of this gorgeous volume. “Essay on Adam” There are five possibilities. One: Adam fell. Two: he was pushed. Three: he jumped. Four: he only looked over the edge, and one look silenced him. Five: nothing worth mentioning happened to Adam. The first, that he fell, is too simple. The fourth, fear, we have tried. It is useless. The fifth, nothing happened, is dull. The choices are these: he jumped or was pushed. And the difference between them is only an issue of whether the demons work from the inside out or from the outside in: the one theological question. Robert Bringhurst is a poet, typographer, and linguist, well known for his award-winning translations of Haida storytellers. His manual The Elements of Typographic Style is one of the world’s most influential texts on typographic design. He lives on Quadra Island, British Columbia.
Robert Bringhurst is one of the world’s foremost mythologists and typographers, and “without doubt a major poet” (Poetry).

Copper Canyon Press Home Burial
Michael McGriff

“A lyricist at heart, McGriff is a masterful maker of metaphor.”—Third Coast “There is majestic beauty in these descriptions, and it is clear that McGriff honors this place as a place—not as mere setting, but as a distinct element of his verse.”—Gently Read Literature Michael McGriff’s second full-length collection explores interior landscapes and illustrates life in a rural community in the Pacific Northwest. Whether tender or hard-hitting, McGriff juxtaposes natural images of deep forests, creeks, coyotes, and crows against the harsher oil-grease realities of bluecollar life, creating poems that read like folk tales about the people working in grain mills, forests, and factories. “New Civilian” The new law says you can abandon your child in an emergency room, no questions asked. The young father carries the sleeping boy through the hospital doors. Later, alone, parked at the boat basin, he takes a knife from his pocket, cuts an unfiltered cigarette in two, lights the longer half in his mouth. He was a medic in the war. In his basement are five bronze eagles that once adorned the walls of a dictator’s palace. Michael McGriff attended the University of Oregon; the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a Michener Fellow in creative writing; and Stanford University, where he was a Stegner Fellow. He is the co-founding editor and publisher of Tavern Books and lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“Work has never been a literary theme park for me— it’s what I know and have known.”—Michael McGriff

Copper Canyon Press pH Neutral History
Lidija Dimkovska
Translated by Ljubica Arsovska and Peggy Reid

“Dimkovska pins readers to the wall with rapid-fire linguistic energy.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “[Dimkovsaka has the] stunning capacity to transform the ridiculous into something poignant and utterly precise.”—Boston Review From the intersection of boundaries, Macedonian poet and novelist Lidija Dimkovska scrutinizes life’s customary and trivial details to expose the consequences—both confusing and edifying—of living in an age of contradictory ethics. These poems are packed with unusual connections and surprising detail, and populated with family characters as well as Bruno Schultz, Laurie Anderson, and George Steiner. Bilingual presentation, with Macedonian en face. From “Ideal Weight”: Our river can be seen only through a small basement window. And nobody dies absolutely any more. The middle-class scrapes the price tags off presents, decorates windows with laser stars, plays shadow theatre with rubber gloves on. It makes faces at you as you cry: “I exorcise zombies professionally! Be free again!” and I know if you’re too fat or too thin life and death are one and the same burden. Only someone of ideal weight can carry the cross upright . . . Poet and novelist Lidija Dimkovska was born in 1971 in Macedonia and she earned a doctoral degree in Romanian literature in Bucharest. She has published six books of poetry and one novel; her work has been translated into twenty languages. Dimkovska lives and teaches in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Copper Canyon Press The Crossed-Out Swastika
Cyrus Cassells

“Cassells is a passionate poet whose poems touch the core of human connection through which can flow union with the infinite. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal Cyrus Cassells’ fifth book commemorates the blazing integrity of young people caught in the vise of World War II. In its journey through the “anti-miracle” of Europe’s embattled past, The Crossed-Out Swastika follows the lives of historical and semi-fictional characters to unearth and amplify moments of almost impossible music, bravery, beauty, and redemption, illuminating the human spirit against unspeakable tyranny. Poet, from cellar to cellar, I remember I held onto, of all things, a picture book about a magical goat, inscribed by my witty father: This storybook belongs to Mademoiselle Sabine the way Paris once belonged to Marie Antoinette— Somehow having that book helped me to endure . . . Cyrus Cassells grew up in the Mojave Desert. He graduated from Stanford University and has worked as a translator, film critic, and actor; he currently teaches poetry in the MFA program at Texas State University–San Marcos. He lives in Austin, Texas.

Copper Canyon Press Break the Glass
Jean Valentine

“As elliptical and demanding as Emily Dickinson, Valentine consistently rewards the reader.”—Library Journal In her eleventh collection—honored as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in poetry—Jean Valentine characteristically weds a moral imperative to imaginative and linguistic leaps and bounds. Whether writing elegies, meditations on aging, or an extended homage to Lucy, the earliest known hominid, the pared-down compactness of her tone and vision reveals a singular voice in American poetry. As Adrienne Rich has said of Valentine’s work, “This is a poetry of the highest order, because it lets us into spaces and meanings we couldn’t approach in any other way.” From “If a Person Visits Someone in a Dream, in Some Cultures the Dreamer Thanks Them”:

Jean Valentine, a former State Poet of New York, earned a National Book Award, the Wallace Stevens Award, and the Shelley Memorial Prize. She has taught at Sarah Lawrence, New York University, and Columbia University. She lives in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City.

Copper Canyon Press Upgraded to Serious
Heather McHugh

“If McHugh is serious, she’s anything but grim; with all her punning, bantering, and mock scolding of herself . . . she brightens the shadowy corners of her world with verbal pyrotechnics.”—The New York Times Book Review “Her poems are open, resilient, invisibly twisted: part safety net, part trampoline.”—Village Voice Literary Supplement This fast-paced, verbally dexterous book—honored as a “Book of the Year” by Publishers Weekly—“boils up and boils over” as it utilizes medical terminology and iconography to work through loss and detachment. Heather McHugh’s startling rhymes and rhythms, coupled with her sarcastic self-reflection and infectious laughter, serve as both palliative and prophylactic in the face of human sufferings and ignorance. Being “upgraded to serious” from critical condition is a nod to the healing powers of poetry. “Not to Be Dwelled On” Self-interest cropped up even there, the day I hoisted three instead of the ceremonially called-for two spadefuls of loam onto the coffin of my friend. Why shovel more than anybody else? What did I think I’d prove? More love (mud in her eye)? More will to work? (her father what, a shirker?) Christ, what wouldn’t anybody give to get that gesture back? She cannot die again; and I do nothing but re-live. Heather McHugh is the author of a dozen books of poetry and translation. She teaches at the University of Washington and Warren Wilson College and lives in Seattle, Washington.
“McHugh remains one of our most important and unusual poets.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Phillip Toledano

“But the impact of these faces and the bodies is jarring, even alienating. The sitters’ motivations for these enormous changes are undoubtedly personal and deeply felt, but the enormity of that transgressive action challenges us as the viewer to sort out our own ideas about beauty and gender.”—W.M. Hunt Are we at a point in history where we are beginning to define not only our own concept of beauty, but of physicality itself? What choices do we make? Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand? Phillip Toledano lives and works in New York City. He has published three monographs—the most recent, Days With My Father, was received with critical acclaim.

John Burke and Simon Norfolk
In October 2010, Simon Norfolk began a series of new photographs in Afghanistan. Norfolk’s photographs are a response to the work of nineteenth-century Irish photographer John Burke, in the context of the contemporary conflict. The project was conceived as a collaborative venture with Burke across time. Norfolk’s new work from Kabul and Helmand is presented alongside Burke’s original portfolios. The echoing images that result from the partnership highlight points of continuity and change from either side of the twentieth-century in the warravaged country. Exhibited at Tate Modern, London, 2011.

Dialogue The Besieged
A Story of Survival

Caroline Walton

On June 22, 1941, Hitler invaded the Soviet Union and German troops advanced towards Leningrad, Russia’s second city with a population of three million. On June 27 the people of Leningrad began constructing fortifications around the city and steeled themselves for a defensive struggle which was to continue until January 1944. So fervent was the people’s resistance that German forces, frustrated by their inability to take the stronghold, encircled the city in a nine hundred-day-long siege, beginning on September 8, 1941, during which around five hundred thousand troops and up to a million civilians died. Published to mark the seventieth anniversary of the beginning of the siege of Leningrad on September 8, 1941, The Besieged takes us inside the fortifications and into the homes and lives of those trapped in Leningrad. The history of the siege is recounted here by survivors who, in the summer of 1999, disclosed their memories of that time to writer Caroline Walton. Their stories describe humanity at its utter limit—encompassing desperation, fear, grief, famine, murder, and even cannibalism. But these are also stories of courage, camaraderie, fortitude, music, passion, and pride, and of an elusive, not quite describable but ineffably human quality that allows hungry people to survive the worst that human experience can yield. Harrowing, yet uplifting, The Besieged is history in the broadest and best sense. Caroline Walton is the author of Ivan Petrov—Russia through a Shot Glass, Little Tenement on the Volga, and The Voice of Leningrad, which won the New London Writers’ Award. She is a fluent Russian speaker.

Dialogue Let Them Eat Carbon
The Price of Failing Climate Change Policies, and How  Governments and Big Business Profit from Them

Matthew Sinclair
Ordinary people are paying a ruinous price for the attempts politicians make to control greenhouse gas emissions. Climate change policies dramatically raise electricity bills, make it much more expensive to drive to work or fly on holiday, put manufacturing workers out of a job, and sometimes even make your food more expensive. Climate change is big business. Much of the money so-called green policies cost us goes straight into the pockets of a bewildering range of special interests. Around the world companies are making billions out of the schemes governments have put in place saying they will curb global warming and protect us from the threat of climate change. There is little evidence that those policies are an efficient way to cut emissions. They simply do not represent good value, and the public are right to be sceptical. In Let Them Eat Carbon Matthew Sinclair looks at the myths perpetuated by the burgeoning climate change industry, examines the individual policies and the potentially disastrous targets being put into place by ambitious politicians, and proposes a more realistic alternative.

Masters of Nothing
How the Crash Will Happen Again Unless   We Understand Human Nature

Matthew Hancock and Nadhim Zahawi
In Masters of Nothing, two noted political economists—using a model of a better understanding of human behavior—lay down a blueprint for the solution to the status quo of financial boom and bust. The behavior of those who rode the boom and switched at the tipping point to ride the bust, or the behavior of those who held on to their principles as the system collapsed around them—it’s all important. It was human behavior after all that led us to construct a bubble nobody suspected was dangerous, yet nonetheless would burst with disastrous consequences.

With the presidential elections just around the corner Sarah Palin and the Tea Party will be central to all activities. A fascinating and timely insider study, The Palin Effect details what is actually going on in the right of American politics and why it is making some people very uncomfortable. It traces the rise of both Palin and the Tea Party—one that corresponds with the declining fortunes of the middle-class in America—and looks at the deep anxiety that both have provoked in the cultural elite. Shana Pearlman shows how sex, money, and class are linked in the hysterical reaction surrounding this extremely divisive personality. Shana Pearlman has worked at Fox News and the BBC. An American political journalist, Pearlman now works on digital initiatives for major UK newspapers. She lives in London, England, with her husband.

Dialogue Not in Front of the Corgis
Secrets of Life Behind the Royal Curtains

Brian Hoey

Interest in the British royal family is inexhaustible. Just take the amazing clamor over the recent wedding of William and Kate! But who are the Royals, and what do they get up to when we aren’t watching them? In Not in Front of the Corgis, a veteran Royal commentator and author of more than twenty books on the Royals peeks behind the curtains to tell us what they really get up to in their spare time. The book asks questions like what the Queen watches on TV and why she does not have a driving license, and answers thousands of questions about the world’s most famous family, including who are the most popular Royals to work for, and who the least? Who is the grandest of the Queen’s children and why? Why do Edward and Andrew pay less than Charles’ private secretary for the rent of their homes, and what records did the Queen Mother like to dance to? Not in Front of the Corgis is a unique and fascinating miscellany containing everything you ever wanted to know about the Royal Family, away from the spotlight. Brian Hoey has been a writer and broadcaster for over forty years, covering countless Royal events, including the wedding of Charles and Diana in 1981 and Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997.

Dialogue Bloody Sunday
Truths, Lies and the Saville Inquiry

Douglas Murray
Douglas Murray followed the Saville Inquiry daily, almost from the beginning, hoping to find a story. Instead, he found hundreds. In this book he tells these stories—the stories of the individuals involved in the terrible events of that defining day, Bloody Sunday. This book is not only about a terrible event and it is not just about a process of justice. It is about the efforts of a group of people to arrive at truth and a country’s effort—three decades on—at a painful and perhaps incomplete reconciliation.

The Meat Fix
How a Lifetime of Healthy Living Nearly Killed Me!

John Nicholson
The Meat Fix is the story of how eating meat again after twenty-six vegetarian years changed John Nicholson’s life powerfully for the better, and his quest to understand why the supposedly healthy diet he had existed on was actually damaging him. He is not a scientist and this is not your standard diet book.

The Disinformation Company The Upgrade
A Cautionary Tale of a Life Without Reservations

Paul Carr

Bored, broke, and struggling to survive in one of the most expensive cities on earth, Paul Carr comes to the surprising realization that it would actually be cheaper to live in a luxury hotel in Manhattan than in his tiny one-bedroom London apartment. Inspired by that possibility, he sells his possessions, abandons his old life, and starts living entirely without commitments as a modern-day nomad. Thanks to Paul’s ability to talk his way into increasingly ridiculous situations, what begins as a one-year experiment soon becomes a permanent lifestyle—a life lived in luxury hotels and mountain-top villas. A life of fast cars, Hollywood actresses, and Icelandic rock stars. Of 6,000-mile booty calls, of partying with eight hundred female hairdressers dressed only in bedsheets, and of nearly dying at the hands of Spanish drug dealers. And, most bizarrely of all, a life that still costs less than his surviving on cold pizza in his old apartment. Yet, as word of Paul’s exploits starts to spread—first online, then through a national newspaper column and eventually a book deal—he finds himself forced constantly to up the stakes in order to keep things interesting. With his behavior spiraling to dangerous—and sometimes criminal—levels, he is forced to ask the question: is there such a thing as too much freedom? Paul Carr is a writer, columnist, and professional failure. He lives permanently in hotels. His previous book Bringing Nothing To The Party told the painful true story of how he tried, and failed, to become the next internet billionaire.
Bored, broke, and struggling to pay the rent, Paul Carr decides to sell everything and live in hotels across America.

The Disinformation Company The Forbidden Book
Guido Mina di Sospiro and Joscelyn Godwin

A multi-faceted mystery that incorporates the most serious and sensitive issue of our time: religious extremism. The evocative setting of Venice and the Veneto dominates the action, supplemented by vivid scenes in Santiago de Compostela, Provence, Washington, and the Vatican. Occult beliefs and practices fuel the action as the main characters become embroiled in an aristocratic sex magick plot. While on one level The Forbidden Book is a murder mystery set against the conflicts of Islam and the West, the book also delves deep into esoteric knowledge and practice, thanks to Guido Mina di Sospiro’s extensive knowledge of Catholicism and Joscelyn Godwin’s authoritative studies of the western esoteric tradition. Underlying the fast paced action, the reader will find a profound treatment of moral and political dilemmas, the conflict of religions, and the frightening possibilities of the occult. Guido Mina di Sospiro is an award-winning, internationally published novelist born in Argentina, raised in Italy, and educated in the United States. A graduate of the University of Southern California, he lives in the Washington, DC, area with his wife and their three sons. Joscelyn Godwin was born in England and lives in Hamilton, New York, where he is professor of music at Colgate University. He graduated with bachelors and masters degrees from Cambridge University and has a PhD from Cornell University. He is a composer, musicologist, and translator, known for his work on ancient music, paganism, and music in the occult. He has written, edited, or translated more than twenty books for multiple publishers worldwide.

Dzanc Books The Festival of Earthly Delights
Matt Dojny

“Matt Dojny’s novel is a true delight. I can’t think of any writer since Kingsley Amis who’s been able to write high-minded comedy that packs such a punch. I’ve never enjoyed a comic novel more.”—John Wray, author of Lowboy, The Right Hand of Sleep, and Canann’s Tongue The Festival of Earthly Delights is a humorous bildungsroman set in the fictional Southeast Asian country of Puchai. The protagonist, Boyd Darrow, has recently moved there with his unfaithful girlfriend to give their relationship a second chance. His adventures, and misadventures, are relayed in a series of letters to a mysterious recipient. February 19 8:23 AM Dear Hap: A new position falls into the hands of one who, living, dreams. I bought this notebook in the airport when we arrived in Puchai, and, instead of keeping a journal—which always feels lonely and pointless to me—I’ve decided to write you a letter. IT WILL COME TRUE. Ulla and I are in the Central Dakhong Railway Station, waiting for the 12:13 train to Mai Mor. The station is rumbling and hot and cavernous and painted floor-to-ceiling in volcanic orange. Ulla has wandered off in search of a bathroom and I’m sitting on a bench, guarding our bags. And—where are you? Matt Dojny lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, new baby, and dog. He is currently a graphic designer for Scholastic Books, and recently coauthored an illustrated essay called “Impossible Sightseeing” in A Public Space.
The Festival of Earthly Delights is a laugh-out-loud bildungsroman set in the fictional Southeast Asian country of Puchai.

Gone are the days when natives kidnap Puritan women, march them into the woods, and sell them to the French. By 1990, women enter the woods to get PhDs, natives summer on Cape Cod, and the French are theorists.

Poems After Frida Kahlo

Pascale Petit

“No other British poet I am aware of can match the powerful mythic imagination of Pascale Petit.”—Les Murray, Times Literary Supplement Poems in the voice of Frida Kahlo. Some are close interpretations of Kahlo’s work, while others are parallels or version homages where Pascale Petit draws on her experience as a visual artist to create alternative “paintings” with words. More than just a verse biography, this collection explores how Kahlo transformed trauma into art after the artist’s near-fatal bus accident. Pascale Petit has published five collections, three of which were shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize.
Pascale Petit, with her vivid style, her feel for nature, and her understanding of pain and redemption, fully inhabits Frida Kahlo’s world.

Adam Prince

“‘The Island of Lost Boys’ is a finely written piece, notable for its acute observation, wry wit, and delicate characterization. The latter is true of even the secondary figures—each is vividly particular—but especially of the complex central character, a risky choice of protagonist who could so easily collapse into sordid stereotype, but who is here delineated with an exacting and surprising sensitivity. The result is a quietly, almost furtively, heartbreaking story.”—Peter Ho Davies In 2011, Narrative Magazine named Adam Prince one of the twenty best new writers.

There’s enough narrative to keep anyone who loves stories hooked; experimental spaces for the innovative reader to co-create in; fierce honesty that does not give way to any trend; lyricism that can be set to music. Once you’ve entered the silken tent of Charlotte Pence’s poetry, you will want to stay inside the intelligence and beauty for a long time, to resist the ordinary.”—Marilyn Kallet Charlotte Pence’s poetry has received the Discovered Voices award, an individual artist commission from Tennessee.

Enigma Books My Fault
How Mussolini’s Jewish Lover Helped Create Fascism—  Then Escaped to Save Her Own Life

Margherita Sarfatti
Edited by Brian Sullivan
Margherita Sarfatti first met Benito Mussolini in 1911 at the socialist daily Avanti! In what became a turbulent love affair she emerged as an important writer, art critic, and major adviser to the founder of the Fascist party. Even though she converted to Catholicism, she was cast aside once Hitler came to power and fled to South America in 1938. During her long exile where she constantly feared for her children who had remained in Italy and were in danger during the war, Sarfatti decided to tell the story of her relationship with Mussolini and the role she played in many important Fascist artistic, cultural, and ideological issues until 1934. Most of Italy’s modern architecture and many of its painters owe Sarfatti both their success and lasting legacy. At first she wrote her memoir in English under the title My Fault. But in 1945 a daily newspaper in Buenos Aires, Critica, published a Spanish version in fourteen installments. In the full text Sarfatti bares all about her stormy relationship with the intensely womanizing dictator whom she knew was quite incapable of any kind of monogamous relationship. Yet the attraction remained long irresistible and that passion jumps off these pages with unrelenting strength. Brian Sullivan is America’s foremost authority on Fascist Italy. After earning a PhD at Columbia he taught at Yale University and at the War College. With the late Phil Cannistraro he is the co-author of Il Duce’s Other Woman (William Morrow, 1993) a major biography of Margherita Sarfatti. He lives in Rockville, Maryland.
Benito Mussolini’s Jewish mistress confesses: How she educated a rough uncultured man to become a politician and consolidate the fascist regime.

Enigma Books American Police A History: 1945–2012
The Blue Parade, Vol. II

Thomas Reppetto
Postwar America saw few changes to law enforcement in one hundred years. The little known San Francisco riot of August 1945 announced the violent events of the next half century. Most of the methods remained unchanged until the 1953 kidnapping of Bobby Greenlease in Kansas City, Missouri, that shook the country. The 1960s were dominated by civil rights struggles and major riots. Watts, Detroit, and Newark demonstrated how local police departments were unable to handle the disorders that engulfed those cities. The anti-war protest at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention is important to this narrative since the author was in charge of convention security. The police department was split on how to deal with the protestors: a major revelation of this book. The author also turned down an offer to become part of a unit later known as the “plumbers” made to him personally by Attorney General John Mitchell. The 1970s and ’80s are the lowest points in modern American law enforcement until the emergence of “zero tolerance” by New York Commissioner William Bratton and Mayor Rudy Giuliani. 9/11 changes the landscape with the new focus on counter terror and new challenges to law enforcement. Thomas Reppetto began as a police officer, rising to Commander of Detectives in the Chicago Police Department. In 1970 he received a PhD in public administration from the Harvard School of Government. He taught at the John Jay College of the City University of New York and became dean of graduate studies, then vice president. He is retired and lives in the New York City area.
The only new history of the American police forces since 1945 touches on all the major issues of police history.

Enigma Books Election Year 1968
The Turning Point Second Edition

Dennis D. Wainstock, PhD
The 1968 election saw the return of the Republican party to the White House and major changes in the political landscape. It was one of the most contentious and unpredictable contests in American history. From Lyndon Baines Johnson’s exit following Eugene McCarthy’s win in New Hampshire to the Robert Francis Kennedy murder, the Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination, and the Chicago Democratic Convention, it relives in this recounting of that explosive year. Vietnam was the main issue but also civil rights and George Wallace, who captured an astounding thirteen percent of the vote. The author interviewed some thirty-five politicians and players, most of them previously unpublished. Dennis D. Wainstock, PhD, is the author of Malcolm X: The Life and Times of an African-American Revolutionary, The Decision to Drop the Atomic Bomb, and Truman, MacArthur and the Korean War.

Etruscan Press The Shyster’s Daughter
Paula Priamos

“Paula Priamos’ The Shyster’s Daughter is a wonderfully written charged memoir— utterly absorbing and packed with sharp details. Direct, evocative, emotionally honest, brave, and funny, Priamos’ voice shines. The Shyster’s Daughter is a suspenseful investigative journey, but its emotional core vibrates with Priamos’ homage to her deeply flawed and deeply loved father, and to their complicated and enduring relationship.”—Victoria Patterson, author of This Vacant Paradise and Drift The last time my father calls is shortly before the anniversary of his disbarment to tell me he’s just cheated death. On his end, there’s background noise—a restaurant, a bar or somewhere far sleazier. Since the divorce he licks his wounds at a topless strip club in Garden Grove called the Kat Nip. The Shyster’s Daughter is a detective memoir of a Greek family living in Southern California in the late 1900s. The author, whose father was an attorney with clients who were often questionable characters knowing a side of him unseen by his family, looks into his death and finds more questions than answers. Paula Priamos’ writing has been featured in various magazines and in the anthology Naming the World: And Other Exercises for the Creative Writer. She teaches at California State University and lives in Southern California with her husband and stepsons. This is her first book.

Zarathustra Must Die
Dorian Alexander

Zarathustra Must Die is a fictional memoir of a graduate student’s odyssey through the thought of Friedrich Nietzsche—a journey that is far more than purely intellectual. Through many states of consciousness, Dorian Alexander finally comes to realize the nature of time and its role in human existence. Dorian Alexander is the pen name of a prominent philosopher and scientist. Zarathustra Must Die is Alexander’s first work of fiction and reflects his longtime fascination with the work of Nietzsche.

Exterminating Angel Press A Galaxy of Immortal Women
The Yin Side of Chinese Civilization

Brian Griffith

Howard Zinn meets Joseph Campbell and Gloria Steinem in a book written for the omnivorous reader—anyone curious about China, world mythology, and women’s history. Touching on the whole story of China—from Neolithic villages to a globalized Shanghai—this book ties mythology, archaeology, history, religion, folklore, literature, and journalism into one great, evolving story of how Chinese women—and the goddess tradition—fostered a counterculture that flourishes and grows stronger every day. As Brian Griffith charts the stories of China’s founding mothers, shamanesses, goddesses, and ordinary heroines, he also explores the largely untold story of women’s contributions to cultural life in the world’s biggest society. He presents their history as one of action, not, as it is so often, cheerleading for the powerful. “These aren’t just stories,” he says. “These are expressions of what have been a people’s hopes, and a sign of what can be a future world.” Impeccably researched, Griffith’s enlightening, conversational history reveals the female-oriented world view that evolved within Daoism, Confucianism, Buddhism, and Chinese folk religion, and how that venerable counterculture is reshaping modern ideas about nature, power, equality, community, health, and spirituality. Brian Griffith grew up in Texas, studied history at the University of Alberta, and now lives just outside of Toronto, Ontario. He is an independent historian who views historical research as a means to understanding how cultural history influences our lives and can point toward contemporary solutions for the world’s biggest problems.
The goddess tradition remakes China and the world.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Two Whole Cakes
How to Stop Dieting and Learn to Love Your Body

Lesley Kinzel

How many times have you heard (or said), “Do these pants make me look fat?” Fatshionista extraordinaire Lesley Kinzel gives advice, tells stories, and challenges stereotypes about being and feeling fat in this powerful debut book. With the “war on obesity” shining a spotlight on the prevalence of fatness, our culture has become acutely critical of big sizes and the women who wear them. But are all fat people unhealthy? Should everyone be concerned about their BMI? Is it okay to eat what you want, and declare your body off limits to public critique? Lesley Kinzel says no to diet fads and pills, shows by example how to stop hating your body, and celebrates the possibilities of fat acceptance and smart fashion at any size. Lesley Kinzel, who co-founded and moderated the blog Fatshionista, is an online celebrity in the communities of size acceptance, fashion, and women’s issues. She now has her own popular blog on body politics in the media, Two Whole Cakes, which gets seventy thousand hits per month. An associate editor of xoJane, Kinzel has become the go-to fatty for all things fat fashion and fat pop culture, and has been quoted on NPR, ABC News, CNN, Guardian, The Boston Globe, New York Post, and The New York Times.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Testo Junkie
Beatriz Preciado
Translated by Bruce Benderson

For one year Beatriz Preciado gave doses of testosterone to herself every day. She writes “I don’t take testosterone to transform myself into a man but to betray what society has wanted to make of me . . . to feel a form of pleasure that is post-pornographic, to add a molecular prostheses to my low-tech transgendered identity.” On one level, this book is a diary of transgression—Preciado’s record of the use of herself as a lab rat. It recounts the defiant “misuse” of a pharmaceutical product normally monitored under the strictest conditions by medical professionals. On another level, Testo Junkie is a penetrating investigation into identity itself and how much of it is mediated, controlled, and, indeed, produced, by medical and pharmacologic pressures. Pulsing with ideas that come from Preciado’s unique perspectives on queer politics and theory, Testo Junkie develops into an analysis of the cultural signification of the human body in an era that she refers to as “pharmaco-pornographic.” Beatriz Preciado has become one of the leading thinkers in the study of gender and sexuality. A professor at the Université de Paris VIII, she is also the author of Manifesto contra-sexual, a queer theory classic, and Pornotopía: Architecture and sexuality in Playboy during the Cold War, which has been named a finalist for the Anagrama Essay Prize. She received her PhD at Princeton and her masters in contemporary philosophy and gender theory at the New School for Social Research in New York.
A transgressive philosopher takes testosterone every day for one year and will never be the same.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Goya’s Glass
Monika Zgustová

The Duchess of Alba, known as Goya’s muse, recalls the passions of youth on her deathbed in the royal court of eighteenth-century Madrid. A young woman defies the protocols of her arranged marriage and pursues love—and the life of a published writer—until her readers condemn her as a danger to society in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nina Berberova escapes persecution during the Russian Revolution and flees to Paris, where the intelligentsia naïvely covet the promise of a Soviet Union. These three women attempt to find passion and intimacy in worlds that rarely accommodate female desire. Goya’s Glass is an unforgettable novel of guilty pleasures coursing through history. Monika Zgustová was born in Prague and lives in Barcelona, Spain. She has published seven books, including novels, short stories, a play, and a biography. Her novel The Silent Woman was a runner-up for the National Award for the Novel, given by the Spanish Ministry of Culture. Zgustová has also received the Ciutat de Barcelona and the Mercè Rodoreda awards in Spain, and the Gratias Agit Award given by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Prague. She has translated more than fifty books of Russian and Czech fiction and poetry, including the works of Milan Kundera and Vaclav Havel, into both Spanish and Catalan.
Not since The French Lieutenant’s Woman has a story captured the passion and desperation of love in different historical frames.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Mother Finds a Body
Gypsy Rose Lee
Foreword by Erik Lee Preminger

“Pure ozone to those tired of ordinary oxygen.”—The New Yorker “One of the greatest mysteries ever written.”—The Philadelphia Daily News “Our most famous burlesque queen may raise the temperature with a strip tease, but she chills the blood when she goes into her detective routine.” —The Boston Post In this steamy sequel to The G-String Murders, Gypsy Rose Lee’s noir thriller reads as if it’s ripped from her own diary pages. When her mother finds a dead body in Gypsy’s trailer during her honeymoon, Gypsy realizes that no one is who they seem to be, and everyone is worthy of suspicion. Gypsy Rose Lee (1911–1970) was born Louise Hovick in Seattle, Washington, and became the most famous burlesque actor and striptease artist of her day, renowned as much for her witty repartee on stage as for removing her clothes. First performing with her sister on the vaudeville circuit and later in striptease routines, Rose soon landed star billing in a top New York burlesque theater, and following her wild success there, became a popular fixture in Broadway theaters. In 1937 she moved to Hollywood. She went on to appear in twelve films and have her own television show. Rose’s writing career included contributing regularly to The New Yorker, reporting on the New York social scene, and publishing two novels. She also wrote her memoir Gypsy (1957), which later became the inspiration for the hugely popular Broadway musical, Gypsy: A Musical Fable and the 1962 film version of the play.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Stranger on Lesbos
Valerie Taylor
Afterword by Marcia Gallo

Frances, a 1950s housewife, becomes bored with her suburban life and enrolls in a class at the local community college. When she meets Bake, a butch lesbian, her life completely changes. In thrall to a forbidden world of martini lunches, late nights at queer bars, and a sexual passion she never knew was possible, Frances must chose between the safety of heterosexual marriage or the dangers of life on the edge of society. In this age of Mad Men fever, the re-issue of Stranger on Lesbos comes at the perfect moment, invoking an era we can’t help but romanticize yet despise. Valerie Taylor is the pen name of Velma Young (1913–1997), author of the lesbian pulp classics Whisper Their Love (1957), The Girls in 3-B (1959), World Without Men (1963), Journey to Fulfillment (1964), and Ripening (1988). With the $500 proceeds of her first novel, Hired Girl (1953), Taylor bought a pair of shoes, two dresses, and hired a divorce lawyer. After leaving her husband, she kicked off a prolific career as the author of pulp fiction novels, poetry (under the name Nacella Young), and romances (under the name Francine Davenport). A longtime activist for gay and lesbian rights, she was a co-founder of Mattachine Midwest and the Lesbian Writers Conference in Chicago.
Sexy, beautiful, but frustrated . . . a neglected housewife finds the delights and degradations of forbidden love.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Viral
WSQ Volume 40, Numbers 1&2 Spring/Summer 2012

Edited by Patricia Clough and Jasbir Puar

When we think of something as “viral,” we often think of the transit of electronic information at an intensified speed and reach. Viral also refers to indiscriminate exchanges, often linked with notions of bodily contamination, uncontainability, and unwelcome transgression of border and boundaries. In this issue of WSQ, the editors invite a rethinking of institutions of education, family, religion, health, military, media, and law to inaugurate an inventive cultural criticism on topics ranging from social media, hacking, clouding, and financial markets to pollution, genetics, and robotics. Viral will also include interdisciplinary artists’ projects, each exploring the technological, political, and biological registers of viral culture. These include a meditation on the US military’s use of PowerPoint slides and an experiment involving the artist’s own hepatitis C-infected blood and plant life. An ongoing social media campaign is being created with input from media maven Johanna Blakley, managing director and director of research at the Norman Lear Center, University of Southern California, and will continue after the issue is published.

Fence Books Percussion Grenade: Poems & Plays
Joyelle McSweeney
Music and drama as weapons of productive destruction. This collection by prize-winning, massively influential literary star Joyelle McSweeney explodes the twinned and dangerous notions that images are pretty, and that they land predictably. Power struggles in all contexts and the driving ever-presence of a lexicon of puissance make this a bracing read, not for the faint of heart or mind. From “Guadaloop”: Just inside the cutters’ pavilion Just at the peak of the oxygen tent Just on the inner lid of the hairline coma Just on the inner thighs of the medical canal Just up under the gesso of lubrication Just up to the hairline of the hairline crack Just there where the adolescent girl eyes the camera Just under the burden of her fishscale hair Just where one sister shoulders the other Just why should one sister have to shoulder the other Just while out of the frame the globe unshouldered rolls around like a boulder in the mouth Just the whole world like a wadded-up burden in the mouth Joyelle McSweeney is the author of five books, including The Red Bird, chosen by Allen Grossman to inaugurate the Fence Modern Poets Series in 2001. McSweeney is a co-founder of Action Books and Action, Yes, a press and webquarterly for international writing and hybrid forms, and a contributing editor of the culture blog She holds degrees from Harvard, Oxford, and the Iowa Writers Workshop, and is an associate professor in the creative writing program at the University of Notre Dame.
Rat-a-tat prosody and scattershot, hallucinatory cultural critique, replete with grotesqueries, spit baroquely from the necropastoral ground of Joyelle McSweeney’s third collection.

Have you ever lit a Marlboro from the ignited gas of a bloated dead man’s belly? Joseph Scott Morgan has. Have you ever wept over a dead dog while not giving a shit about the dead owner laying next him? Morgan did. Were you named after a murder victim? Joseph Scott Morgan was. This isn’t Hollywood fantasy—it’s the true story of a boy born into the deprivations of a white trash trailer park who as an adult gets further involved in the desperate backdoor sagas of the “new South.” No hot blondes here, just maggots, grief, and the truth about forensics and death investigation. Joseph Scott Morgan became a death investigator with the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office in suburban New Orleans in 1987, the youngest medicolegal death investigator in the country. During the day, Morgan worked in the morgue, and at night investigated for the coroner. In 1992 Morgan became senior investigator with the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office in Atlanta. Morgan is now a college professor at North Georgia College and State University, where he teaches a death investigation course based on the national standards which he helped develop. He and his family reside in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia.

Feral House Psychic Blues
Confessions of a Conflicted Medium

Mark Edward
Foreword by James Randi
“Mark Edward is an equivocator, fibber, and mountebank. Which begs the question: if a liar admits to lying, can he be telling the truth? He is a literate, informative intellectual, a student of the psychology of humans, a foe of those who would defraud the public for personal gain, and as an author and practicing psychic, he is first and foremost an entertainer.” —Joel Moskowitz, International Brotherhood of Magicians Mark Edward admits that for years he exploited believers who wished to connect with supernatural ideas and sad family members who missed dead loved ones. Now Edward is a magician who works the Haunted Castle in Hollywood and is also on the editorial board of Skeptic magazine, where he reveals the means of psychic scamsters. This entertaining book is at once a confessional and instructional regarding human belief and those who exploit it. Though Edward believes that most practitioners of the psychic business are out-and-out scam artists, he also counters the skeptic belief that the supernatural is a lie.

Feral House Future Primitive Revisited
Enlarged Edition

John Zerzan
Introduction by Michael Becker
“Zerzan’s writing is sharp, uncompromising, and tenacious.”—Derrick Jensen “John Zerzan’s importance does not only consist in his brilliant intelligence, his absolute clearness of analysis and his unequalled dialectical synthesis that clarifies even the most complicated questions, but also in the humanity that fills his thoughts of resistance. Future Primitive Revisited is one more precious gift for us all.”—Enrico Manicardi, author of Liberi dalla Civiltá (Free from Civilization) “Anyone who travels with his eyes open understands the sense of much of what you have written, and the longer I live the greater my contempt for the opportunists who run governments and dictate our lives with technology.” —Paul Theroux “Of course we should go primitive. This doesn’t mean abandoning material needs, tools, or skills, but ending our obsession with such concerns. Declaring for community, our true origin: personal autonomy, trust, mutual support in pursuit of all the joys and troubles of life. Society was a trap— massive, demanding, impersonal and debilitating from day one. So hurry back to the community, friends, and welcome all the consequences of such an orientation. The reasons for fear and despair will only multiply if we remain in this brutal and dangerous state of civilization.”—Blok 45 publishing, Belgrade As our society is stricken with repeated technological disasters, and the apocalyptic problems that go with them, the “neo-primitivist” essays of John Zerzan seem more relevant than ever. “Future Primitive,” the core innovative essay of Future Primitive Revisited, has been out of print for years. This new edition is updated with never-beforeprinted essays that speak to a youthful political movement and influential writers such as Derrick Jensen and Paul Theroux. An active participant in the contemporary anarchist resurgence, John Zerzan has been an invited speaker at both radical and conventional events on several continents. His weekly Anarchy Radio broadcast streams live on KWVA radio in Eugene, OR. Feral House has published three of Zerzan’s other books, including Against Civilization, Running on Emptiness, and Twilight of the Machines.

Feral House Pure Filth
Jamie Gillis and Peter Sotos

Jamie Gillis appeared in over one hundred films, and as such was a primary performer in pornography’s “Golden Age.” Gillis is also known for inventing the “Gonzo” genre of pornography, played out in the film Boogie Nights by Burt Reynolds’ character. Pure Filth appears as transcripts from the films Jamie produced during these early years of radical and highly personal pornography. Completed just before his death in February 2010, Gillis contributed an introduction to each transcript to shed light on his ideas and plans, as well as anecdotal details and personal commentary. The book has more to do with an artist’s understanding of sex than the mere views of a flesh peddler. The careful language and brutal intelligence that Jamie brought to interviews are what separates the conversations from any other work that might have more academic or prurient pretensions. Extreme novelist Peter Sotos, perhaps better known and appreciated in France and the United Kingdom than his home country, was a good friend of Jamie Gillis, and Sotos’ unusual perspective makes this volume possible.

Fulcrum Publishing Let Them Paddle
Coming of Age on the Water

Alan S. Kesselheim

When paddlers Alan S. Kesselheim and his wife were starting their family, each of their three kids unintentionally experienced, before birth, a major river expedition. Later, Eli, Sawyer, and Ruby grew up on other river trips, joining the Kesselheims in canoes as infants and toddlers and becoming adept paddlers and campers before the age of ten. Recognizing a unique opportunity to celebrate their childrens’ transitions to adulthood, the family returned to those “birth” rivers and repeated each of the three original paddling trips. Over a period of four years, as each child reached the age of thirteen, and across a span of geography from the Arctic Circle to Mexico, the family of five shared inspirational travel adventures on the water. A moving testimonial for allowing children to experience nature firsthand, Let Them Paddle is a captivating tale of a family coming of age. Alan S. Kesselheim has worked as a freelance writer for thirty years. He is the author of ten books and hundreds of magazine articles in a handful of publications, including Canoe & Kayak magazine. In addition to his writing work, Kesselheim has taught writing workshops throughout North America and teaches occasional classes at Montana State University. He is best known for his exploits as a wilderness adventurer and canoeist and is a veteran of many extended expeditions, including two year-long canoe journeys across Canada. Kesselheim has incorporated his three children into his wilderness adventure lifestyle and has every expectation that they will carry on the tradition. He lives in Bozeman, Montana, with his wife and children.
A beautiful collection of essays describing the different river adventures one family undertook for each child’s coming of age celebration.

Fulcrum Publishing Rebuilding Justice
Civil Courts in Jeopardy and Why You Should Care

Rebecca Love Kourlis and Dirk Olin
With the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System Foreword by Sandra Day O’Conor
“We are blessed with many excellent judges and court staff . . . but they and all the rest of us have an obligation to work hard to improve the system so that it is both impartial and accountable.”—From the foreword by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor Over the past several decades, the civil justice process has become alarmingly expensive, politicized, and time-consuming. Though the court system lies at the heart of American democracy, it often does not meet the legitimate needs of the people, resulting in a rift between citizens and their own legal system. With a system that hasn’t seen major reform since 1938, it’s inevitable that there are shortcomings and misunderstandings. The situation is precarious, but not hopeless. In Rebuilding Justice, Rebecca Love Kourlis and Dirk Olin illuminate why the courts are critical and how they are being eroded, defaced, and undermined. While covering complex issues such as civil justice reform, judicial selection and performance evaluation, and domestic relations, Kourlis and Olin propose practical solutions to improve the efficiency, accessibility, and integrity of America’s civil courts. An important portrait of the American judicial system, Rebuilding Justice is a call to action for citizens and civil servants alike to take the steps necessary to fix, support, and protect this crucial cornerstone of our democracy. Rebecca Love Kourlis is the founder and executive director of the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, a former justice of the Colorado Supreme Court, a former District Court Judge, and a former trial judge. She holds undergraduate and law degrees from Stanford University. Dirk Olin is a legal affairs journalist who currently serves as editor and publisher of Corporate Responsibility Magazine. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College and a master’s degree from Northwestern Journalism School.
This book is a civics lesson for the court system, a call to action, and a manning of the ramparts.

GLAS New Russian Writing What the Emperor Cannot Do
Tales and Legends of the Orient

Vlas Doroshevich
Translated by Rowen Glie and Ronald Landau with John Dewey
Styled as Oriental tales, these parables are unexpected, exciting, colorful, and tremendously readable. Vlas Doroshevich could not stand tyranny in any form and in his tales he availed himself of complete freedom to mock, to despise, and to accuse the authorities for their wickedness, hypocrisy, and stupidity. These tales could be written by and for rebellious “anti-establishment” youth of today. Doroshevich’s works were often banned during the tsarist times and then finally banned completely under the Bolsheviks. This great Russian writer, who was a friend of Anton Chekhov, is only now being resurrected from oblivion. This is the first English translation of his tales. Vlas Doroshevich (1864–1922) was widely known as the “king of journalism” in his time. He was also a novelist, drama critic, and short story writer.

A rediscovery of a brilliant writer from the early twentieth century banned under Soviets. These anti-establishment tales are universal and timeless.

Arslan Khasavov
Translated by Arch Tait
“Sense will be of interest to the English-speaking reader for its intimate vision of the world of a confused adolescent in a threatening and dangerous world. This young and courageous author has a sense of irony and humor and manages to distance himself from his hero’s social preoccupations and hyperbole. The book’s appeal is in its youthful immediacy.”—Arch Tait “This Chechen boy created a portrait of dissident youth in the best traditions of Tolstoy and Turgenev.”—Eduard Limonov Arslan Khasavov is the 2009 Debut Prize winner. He works for the BBC Russian service as a columnist on Northern Caucasus. Arch Tait, a recently retired professor of Russian literature, has many successful translations to his name, including books by Anna Politkovskaya and Ludmila Ulitskaya.

Gryphon House Start Smart!
Building Brain Power in the Early Years Revised Edition

Pam Schiller, PhD
Did you know that emotions boost our memory? Or that small muscle exercises help the brain develop? Early experiences contribute to the structure of the brain and its capacities. The quality, quantity, and consistency of stimulation will determine, to a large extent, the number of brain synapses that are formed and how those connections will function. This is true for both cognitive and emotional development, and the effect is lifelong. Start Smart offers simple, straightforward ways to boost brain power with active exploration, repetition, sensory exploration, and direct experience. Revised to reflect the latest research about how children learn, the new edition of this classic bestseller offers explanations on how and why these activities help the brain develop. The layout has been updated, and the illustrations are now in color. Pam Schiller, PhD, is a highly sought-after speaker who writes regularly for early childhood journals. Pam is the author of five early childhood curriculums, eleven children’s books, and more than thirty teacher and parent resource books.

Simple, straightforward ways to ensure healthy brain development based on the latest research about how children learn.

Gryphon House Many Languages, Building Connections
Supporting Infants and Toddlers Who Are  Dual Language Learners

Karen N. Nemeth
All infants and toddlers need experiences that nurture, support, and teach their home language and culture. Language is a vital component of early experiences well before the child can say his first word. Infants and toddlers whose families come from diverse backgrounds and speak different languages are appearing in all kinds of early care and learning settings in growing numbers. Even the most experienced caregiver can feel a bit unsure about meeting the unique needs of infants and toddlers from different language backgrounds. Many Languages, Building Connections outlines adaptable strategies that caregivers of children younger than the age of three need to feel confident that they know how language develops, how cultural differences can come into play, and how to assess an individual child’s situation to provide appropriate support. From welcoming diverse families and engaging them to participate in a child care program to creating nurturing communities that value and support each child’s home language while also fostering English acquisition, the helpful strategies included in Many Languages, Building Connections will prepare caregivers for the diverse reality they encounter in their work. Karen N. Nemeth has been a teacher and a teacher educator for more than twenty-five years. She is a sought-after speaker on topics related to first- and second-language development. This is her second book.

Gryphon House Real Classroom Makeovers
Practical Ideas for Early Childhood Classrooms

Rebecca Isbell and Pamela Evanshen

Learning environments are an important topic as more and more teachers try to make their classrooms into places that support and inspire learning. Using “before” and “after” pictures of real early childhood classrooms, Real Classroom Makeovers shows early childhood teachers step-by-step how small changes can transform their classrooms into wondrous environments for young children to learn and grow. With a budget-conscious focus, the book provides visual examples of dramatic changes that are possible in real preschool, Pre-K, and kindergarten classrooms. Most of the makeovers focus on a specific classroom area or learning center. Much more than a collection of before-and-after pictures, this book introduces and describes the philosophy behind creative learning environments based on current early childhood education research. Written in simple, downto-earth language, this book is accessible for all educators! Rebecca Isbell, PhD, is director of the Center of Excellence in Early Childhood Learning and Development and a distinguished professor for teaching at East Tennessee State University. A sought-after speaker for early childhood conferences, she has authored several best-selling books for educators. Pamela Evanshen, PhD, holds a doctorate of education in educational leadership and policy analysis and is currently an associate professor and program coordinator for the early childhood program in the Human Development and Learning department at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee.
This hands-on guide helps early childhood teachers turn classrooms into wondrous places for children to learn and grow!

Haus Publishing Berlin Cantata
Jeffrey Lewis

“A city that has lost one of its limbs and is receiving a miraculous gift, a little bump under the flesh, where the limb is just beginning to grow back.” Thus does the American girl in Jeffrey Lewis’ remarkable polyphonic novel describe Berlin and the “remnant Jews, secret GDR Jews . . . Soviet Jews . . . Jews who’d fled and come back with the victors, Jews who were lost mandarins now, Jews who’d believed in the universality of man and maybe still did” she finds at a gathering in the eastern city soon after the Wall fell. At the center of Berlin Cantata is a house owned successively by Jews, Nazis, and Communists. In the house, the American girl seeks her hidden past. In the girl, a local reporter seeks redemption. In the reporter, a false hero of the past seeks exposure. In the false hero, the American girl seeks a guide. And so it goes, a round of conspiracy and desire. Berlin Cantata deploys thirteen voices to tell a story of atonement, discovery, loss, identity, intrigue, mystery, insanity, sadomasochism, and lies. Jeffrey Lewis is the author of Meritocracy: A Love Story (2005), Theme Song for an Old Show (2007), The Conference of the Birds (2007), and Adam the King (2008). He has won a string of awards, including the Independent Publishers Gold Medal for Literary Fiction for his novels, and two Emmy Awards and the Writer’s Guild Award for his work as a writer and producer on Hill Street Blues.
A young Jewish woman goes to Berlin after the fall of the Wall, finding a world of possibilities and deception.

Aziz is a kind-hearted zookeeper with a sense of humor, living a simple life in Algeria. But his contented existence is shattered by the abduction of his thirteen-year-old daughter. Aziz, his wife, his stepfather-in-law, and his mother-in-law are sent on a frantic and desperate chase to save the young girl’s life. But this is no ordinary abduction. No ransom demands are made. Instead, the kidnapper forces Aziz to confront his darkest fears, to test the strength of his relationships, and to challenge how far he will go to save his daughter. Aziz and his wife each blame the other for not doing enough for their child. The kidnapper takes a haunting pleasure in turning the family against each other. Meanwhile, a story unfolds of two men brought together in an unlikely friendship, both brutalized by their pasts as soldiers. Slowly, the kidnapper’s motives become clear as we plunge into a past of crimes and atrocities perpetrated during Algeria’s war of independence. Anouar Benmalek is the author of The Lovers of Algeria (2004) and The Child of Ancient People (Graywolf Press, 2004). He was a founder of the Algerian Committee Against Torture and is one of France’s best-selling novelists.

Haus Publishing The Cocaine Salesman
Conny Braam

A historical novel based on a true but unexplored aspect of World War I—the selling of cocaine to both sides by the Dutch—woven around a story of personal betrayal and self-deception. On July 31, 1917, Robin Ryder, the twenty-six-year-old Englishman, clambers from his trench on a Flanders battlefield and charges fearlessly towards the German lines. Heavily wounded by a German grenade, half his mutilated face will have to be hidden behind a mask. Lucien Hirschland, the traveling salesman of the flourishing Dutch Cocaine Factory, is supplying both sides with drugs to make their soldiers more reckless in the face of overwhelming danger. Closing deals with both the Germans and the British, he flaunts his newfound wealth. At the war’s end, extraordinary circumstances find Ryder living in the Hirschland family home where he is lovingly welcomed by Lucien’s younger sister, Swanee. Expectations and illusions grow as their lives spin out of control and they learn that the war veteran has more to hide than his mutilated face. Conny Braam helped set up and then led the Dutch Anti-Apartheid Movement. Her books include Operatie Vulva, De Bokkeslachter, and Zwavel, a trilogy of novels about the family Abraham.
Cocaine, war, love, betrayal, and vengeance: The Cocaine Salesman is an unparalleled novel based on true events.

Haus Publishing The Indies Enterprise
Érik Orsenna

The twenty-five year old Christopher Columbus, shipwrecked off the Portuguese coast, makes his way to Lisbon and is reunited with his younger brother Bartolomew, a gifted cartographer. The Genoese brothers spend the next eight years drumming up support for Christopher’s great venture, the westward voyage in search of a quicker route to the Spice Islands and India. Unaware that the North American continent lies in their way, they call it the Indies Enterprise. Érik Orsenna’s fascinating novel is the tale not of a voyage of exploration, but of the years preceding it and the many discoveries of a period of enlightened awakening and scientific curiosity. The story is told by Bartolomew in old age, living on the island of Hispaniola after Christopher’s death. Despite its scientific spirit, the period witnessed the Inquisition and the savage persecution of Jews. The contradiction slowly dawns on Bartolomew through the “Indios” whose land has been taken, and who are now enslaved to the Europeans. Was the worm of man’s inhumanity to man present in the fruit of their great enterprise all along?

Haus Publishing 1919
A Turning Point in World History

Alan Sharp and TG Fraser

1919 was a pivotal year. While the Paris Peace Conference dominated the headlines, events elsewhere in the world would have a major impact on the twentieth century and beyond. In Ireland, Egypt, India, China, and the Middle East, Britain, France, and Japan faced gathering resistance to their rule. Nationalist leaders like Gandhi, Saad Zaghlul, and Ho Chi Minh rose to prominence, while the leaders of the Irish rebellion against Britain enjoyed more immediate success. In 1919 the world was poised between triumphant imperialism and emerging nationalism. 1919 also witnessed fear of communism on a global scale, fuelled by Bolshevik success in Russia, a short-lived revolutionary government in Munich, and Bela Kun’s seizure of power in Hungary. In Italy and Germany, Fascism and National Socialism emerged as alternatives to both Communism and the bourgeois status quo, while in the United States Attorney General Mitchell Palmer’s attempts to quell radicalism and enforce Prohibition launched the career of J. Edgar Hoover. By looking beyond Europe and the first six months of 1919, including the Third Afghan War, this book gives a global perspective of the events and upheavals explored in Margaret Macmillan’s seminal history of the peace conferences of that year, Paris 1919. Alan Sharp and TG Fraser bring together their renowned knowledge of what happened when four empires collapsed simultaneously; a historical constellation unique to the aftermath of World War I.
A history of the world in flux during a turbulent year of radical global change. Marketing Plans

Haus Publishing Why Kosovo Still Matters
Denis MacShane

“The people of Kosovo—both the cleansed Albanians and the demagogically exploited Serbs—now know who their political and humanitarian friends were. One of the most outstanding European and parliamentary advocates has been Dr. Denis MacShane. This will surprise none who know of his record on human rights. The book will stand as a monument to a harsh time and to the fortitude that overcame it.”—Christopher Hitchens This polemical appeal by Denis MacShane calls for policy makers to re-engage with the Western Balkans before it is too late. MacShane has written a vivid and forceful account, showing that the Western Balkans are a symbol of Europe’s weakness to transform one of its key regions and the choice we face is now stark: either the Balkans become European or Europe becomes Balkanized.

Haus Publishing Shakespeare in Kabul
Stephen Landrigan and Qais Akbar Omar

In 2005, a group of actors in Kabul performed Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost to the cheers of Afghan audiences and rave reviews from foreign journalists. For the first time in years, men and women had appeared on stage together. The future held no limits, the actors believed. In this fast-moving, fondly told, and frequently very funny account, Qais Akbar Omar and Stephen Landrigan capture the triumphs and foibles of the actors as they extend their Afghan passion for poetry to Shakespeare’s. Both authors were part of the production. Qais, a journalist, served as assistant director and interpreter for Parisian actress, Corinne Jaber, who had come to Afghanistan on holiday and returned to direct the play. Stephen, himself a playwright, assembled a team of Afghan translators to fashion a script in Dari as poetic as Shakespeare’s. This chronicle of optimism plays out against the heartbreak of knowing that things in Afghanistan have not turned out the way the actors expected. Yet. Stephen Landrigan is a former journalist who has reported for The Washington Post and BBC Radio, among others. He went to Afghanistan in 2004 and now lives in Massachusetts where he works with the School of Leadership, Afghanistan (SOLA) that prepares young Afghan women to study at major American universities. During the Taliban era Qais Akbar Omar ran a carpet factory in his home, providing illegal employment for forty young women. He is the author of A Fort of Nine Towers.
The uplifting story of bringing Shakespeare to Afghanistan, with men and women appearing together on stage for the first time since liberation.

Haus Publishing Dickens’s London
Peter Clark

No writer can lay claim to making a city the principal character of their novels as Charles Dickens did with London. A near photographic memory made his contact with London indelible from a young age. Though these early hardships required the filter of literature to numb the humiliation he felt about his humble origins. From his Camden Town landlady Elizabeth Roylance finding her way into literary characterization as Mrs. Pipchin in Dombey and Son to the way in which his working day as a young clerk at Gray’s Inn informed Bleak House and the appropriation of his colleague Bob Fagin’s name to his notorious villain in Oliver Twist, the people and places of Dickens’s London are a constant and pervading presence through his novels. From the coaching inns to the lower reaches of the Thames, London was the inexhaustible “character” he was drawn back to again and again. Published amid the two-hundredth anniversary celebrations of Charles Dickens’ birth in 1811 and in the wake of the major “Dickens at 200” exhibition at the The Morgan Library and Museum, New York, Dickens’s London is a remarkable study of how a city can inform and ignite the imagination. Five walks with maps through Dickensian London make this the perfect accompaniment for a trip to the British capitol. Peter Clark has written books on Henry Hallam, Marmaduke Pickthall, and Wilfred Thesiger. He is a translator from the Arabic and a founder trustee of the International Prize for Arabic Fiction.
Published on the two hundredth anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth, this is a celebration of the London he created in his fictional works.

Haymarket Books A Time to Die
The Attica Prison Revolt

Tom Wicker

“Superb.”—Kurt Vonnegut “Wicker’s story though could not be more vital today. . . . A Time To Die compels us to understand the inhumanity of prisons in America, one of the greatest injustices of our time, and of a state that has no compunction about murdering prisoners and jailers alike. Think Attica forty years ago, think Pelican Bay today. Then act.”—Michael Ratner, president, Center for Constitutional Rights “[A Time to Die’s] lessons about the racist underpinnings of mass incarceration, about the cynical politics that determine life-or-death decisions, and about the conditions that deny prisoners their basic humanity—are as relevant today as when it was first published.”—Liliana Segura, associate editor, The Nation In September 1971 the inmates of Attica Prison revolted, took hostages, and forced the authorities into four days of desperate negotiation. At the outset the rebels demanded—and were granted—the presence of a group of observers to act as unofficial mediators. Tom Wicker, then the associate editor of The New York Times, was one of those summoned. In four crucial days, he learned more, saw more, and felt more than in most of the rest of his life. In the end, a police attack was launched, and as a result dozens of prisoners, as well as prison employees, were killed. Tom Wicker, a former reporter, Washington bureau chief, and columnist for The New York Times, is the author of several books, including On the Record. He lives in Rochester, Vermont.

Haymarket Books The Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975
Edited by Göran Hugo Olsson
Preface by Danny Glover

“Addressing what might be thought of as standard historical and contemporary subjects with startlingly radical means. . . . Göran Hugo Olsson’s Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975 is a collage of archival footage recorded in America, mostly by Swedish journalists, in the era of African-American militancy. The images, accompanied by present-day voice-over reflections from historians, rappers, artists, and veterans of the era’s racial politics, offer revelations about events and personalities we thought we understood completely.” —The New York Times, reviewing the Black Power Mixtape documentary “We have much to learn from these visionary organizers who sought to redefine and re-imagine democracy, whose sense of empowerment derived from the belief that the people could be the architects for change.” —Danny Glover, from the preface Featuring images and transcipts only recently discovered in the archives of Swedish television, here is the Black Power movement as you’ve never seen it. Based on the award-winning documentary of the same name, Black Power Mixtape presents original interviews with Stokely Carmichel, Angela Davis, and others who shaped the struggle of their day. Mixed with the contemporary reflections of leading activists, musicians, and scholars, this book aims to introduce a new generation to the legacy of Black Power. Includes historical speeches and interviews by: Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture), Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, Emile de Antonio, and Angela Davis. Includes new commentary voiced by: Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Harry Belafonte, Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis, Robin Kelley, Abiodun Oyewole, Sonia Sanchez, Bobby Seale, and Questlove.

Haymarket Books Is Just a Movie
Earl Lovelace

“Is Just a Movie is not just a movie, it’s a poem, too.”—Arundhati Roy, author, The God of Small Things “Earl Lovelace is arguably the Caribbean’s greatest living novelist. In Is Just a Movie, he writes at the top of his considerable literary powers, picturing the Caribbean’s poor and powerless defending their ever-embattled humanity with resourcefulness and tenacity.”—Randall Robinson, author, Makeda “Is Just a Movie confirms Lovelace as a master storyteller of the West Indies.” —Financial Times “Lovelace is bursting with things to say about this complex, heterogeneous society in the late twentieth century. This he does with a flair that at its best reaches a soaring rhapsody.”—Guardian “Funny, moving, endlessly inventive.”—The Times “Vivid prose that seems to stroll effortlessly across the page. Lovelace’s loose writing is meticulously crafted but it retains its casual elegance.” —The Times Literary Supplement In Trinidad, in the wake of 1970’s Black Power rebellion, we follow Sonnyboy, Singer King Kala, and their town’s folk through experiments in music, politics, religion, and love—and in their day-to-day adventures. Humorous and serious, sad and uplifting, Is Just a Movie is a radiant novel about small moments of magic in ordinary life. Earl Lovelace’s books include While Gods Are Falling, winner of the BP Independence Award; the Caribbean classic The Dragon Can’t Dance; and Salt, which won the 1997 Commonwealth Writers Prize. For Is Just a Movie, he has won the Grand Prize for Caribbean Literature from the Regional Council of Guadeloupe.
Rich, inventive, and funny, here is the first novel in over a decade from the great Carribbean novelist Earl Lovelace.

Haymarket Books My People Are Rising
Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain

Aaron Dixon

“This book is a moving memoir experience: a must read. The dramatic life cycle rise of a youthful sixties political revolutionary, my friend Aaron Dixon.”—Bobby Seale, founding chairman and national organizer of the Black Panther Party, 1966 to 1974 “My People Are Rising: A Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain is the most authentic book ever written by a member of the Black Panther Party. Aaron Dixon does a superb job of presenting life in the party from the perspective of a foot soldier—a warrior for the cause of revolutionary change and black power in America. He pulls no punches and holds nothing back in writing honestly about those times (late 1960s and during the 1970s) as he successfully presents a visual picture of the courage, commitment, and sometimes shocking brutality of life as a Panther activist. This is an unforgettable must read book!” —Larry Gossett, chair, Metropolitan King County Council In an era of stark racial injustice and decisive action, Aaron Dixon dedicated his life to the struggle for change, founding the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party in 1968 at age nineteen. Through his eyes, we see the courage of a generation that stood up to injustice, their political triumphs and tragedies, and the unforgettable legacy of Black Power. Aaron Dixon was co-founder and captain of the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party. He has since founded various non-profits for Seattle youth and run as a Green Party candidate in the 2006 Senate race. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
A compelling look at the inspiring Black Panther generation, through the eyes of a founding member in Seattle.

Michael Löwy is research director in sociology at the National Centre for Scientific Research in Paris, France. He is the author of many books, including The Theory of Revolution in the Young Marx and, with Olivier Besancenot, Che Guevara: His Revolutionary Legacy.

The Dialectics of State Capitalism
Writings on Marxist Theory, 1940–1956

C.L.R. James
Edited by Scott McLemee
Admirers of C.L.R. James have long known that he developed a theory of the Soviet Union as a state capitalist society. But his most important writings on the topic have long been unobtainable. This volume aims to change that. C.L.R. James (1901–1989) was a novelist, activist, and political theorist who worked with Leon Trotsky, Richard Wright, and Kwame Nkrumah. He wrote The Black Jacobins, helped create a network of pan-African organizers, and served as a delegate to the founding congress of the Fourth International.

Haymarket Books The Revolution Besieged
Lenin 1917–1923 (Vol. 3)

Tony Cliff
When Vladimir Lenin and the Bolshevik party led the first successful workers revolution in history, they were under no illusions that their work was finished with the overthrow of capitalism in Russia. As the fledgling workers’ state was gripped by a civil war, the revolution’s leaders remained steadfast in their commitment to spreading their successes across all of Europe. Tony Cliff (1917–2000) spent his life developing revolutionary Marxism against Stalinism. From his early days as a revolutionary in British-occupied Palestine to the high points of struggle in post-war Britain, Cliff worked to restore lost ideas and traditions and fan the flames of resistance.

Alan Maass
“Is socialism an impossible, discredited dream or the only realistic path for human survival? If you’re not sure of the answer, or are just curious about what the Left really believes in, you need to read Maass. He’s the Tom Paine of the contemporary American left.”—Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums Global capitalism is in its worst crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Unemployment is growing. America’s imperial wars rage on. In this brilliant polemic, translated to Spanish, Alan Maass argues that the alternative is a democratically planned economy based on workers’ control. Alan Maass is the editor of, a daily website of left news and opinion, and the Socialist Worker newspaper.

Ig Publishing Ghosting
Kirby Gann

“A novelist of daring creativity and passion.”—Edmund White A dying drug kingpin enslaved to the memory of his dead wife; a young woman torn between a promising future and the hardscrabble world she grew up in; a mother willing to do anything to fuel her addiction to pills; and her youngest son, searching for the truth behind his older brother’s disappearance, are just some of the unforgettable characters that populate Ghosting, Kirby Gann’s lush and lyrical novel of family and community, and the ties that can both bond and betray. Fleece Skaggs has disappeared, along with drug dealer Lawrence Gruel’s reefer harvest. Deciding that the best way to discover what happened to his older brother is to take his place as a drug runner for Gruel, James Cole plunges into a dark underworld of drugs, violence, and long hidden family secrets, where discovering what happened to his brother could cost him his life. A genre-subverting literary mystery told from the alternating viewpoint of different characters, Ghosting is both a simple quest for the truth—what exactly happened to Fleece Skaggs?—and a complex consideration of human frailty. Kirby Gann is the author of the novels The Barbarian Parade and Our Napoleon in Rags (Ig Publishing, 2005). His short fiction has appeared in Witness and The Best of Witness, The Crescent Review, American Writing, The Louisville Review, The Southeast Review, and Southern Indiana Review, among other journals. Gann is managing editor at Sarabande Books and teaches in the brief-residency MFA in writing program at Spalding University.
A genre-subverting literary noir set in the drug underworld.

Ig Publishing Jonah Man
Christopher Narozny

Set in vaudeville in the early twentieth century, Jonah Man is a gripping and ultimately heartbreaking novel that reveals the often tragic lives of performers struggling to make it to the big time. Told from the perspectives of multiple characters, including a one-handed juggler who moonlights as a drug trafficker, a talented young boy who longs to escape the shadow of his abusive father, and a police inspector whose bumbling attempts to solve a murder result in a series of calamitous missteps, Jonah Man explores the dark side of life behind the curtain, where performers will resort to the most extreme measures—including drug dealing, self-mutilation, and even murder—to keep their ever shrinking dream of becoming a star alive. Resurrecting the lost language and world of vaudeville—a “Jonah Man” was a performer who, despite his best efforts, had stalled in his career—Jonah Man is an unforgettable portrait of people trapped between their highest hopes and the crushing realties of their lives. Christopher Narozny earned an MFA in fiction from Syracuse University and a PhD in creative writing and literature from the University of Denver. His fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in the American Literary Review, Denver Quarterly, Marginalia, elimae, and Hobart. While at Syracuse he won the Peter Neagoe Prize for Fiction, and at the University of Denver he was awarded the Frankel Dissertation Fellowship for an earlier draft of Jonah Man. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Jonah Man reveals the grim and often tragic lives of performers who never make it to the big stage.

Ig Publishing Outerborough Blues
A Brooklyn Mystery

Andrew Cotto

A beautiful young French girl walks into a bar, nervously lights a cigarette, and begs the bartender for help in finding her missing artist brother. In a moment of weakness, the bartender—a lone wolf named Caesar Stiles with a chip on his shoulder and a Sicilian family curse hanging over him—agrees. What follows is a stylish literary mystery set in Brooklyn on the dawn of gentrification. While Caesar is initially trying to earn an honest living at the neighborhood watering hole, his world quickly unravels. In addition to being haunted by his past, including a brother who is intent on settling an old family score, Caesar is being hunted down by a mysterious nemesis known as The Orange Man. Adding to this combustible mix, Caesar is a white man living in a deeprooted African American community with decidedly mixed feelings about his presence. In the course of his search for the French girl’s missing brother, Caesar tumbles headlong into the shadowy depths of his newly adopted neighborhood, where he ultimately uncovers some of its most sinister secrets. Taking place over the course of a single week, Outerborough Blues is a tightly paced and gritty urban noir saturated with the rough and tumble atmosphere of early 1990s Brooklyn. Andrew Cotto has written for numerous publications, including The New York Times, Men’s Journal,, Teachers & Writers magazine, and The Good Men Project. He has an MFA in creative writing from The New School. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
A beautiful French girl, her missing brother, a reluctant detective, and a Brooklyn on the dawn of gentrification.

Nearly everyone has an attachment to some form of sport. I hope that my use of the term weird is not taken out of context or considered derogatory. To me, it’s about being unique and visionary. Whether it’s urban golf, cardboard tube fighting, Godzilla wrestling, lingerie football, Segway polo, or drag queen softball, this body of work documents events you will not find in the sports section of the local newspaper. Over the past five years, Sol Neelman has been traveling around the world seeking out the weird and wacky in sports. Sol Neelman is a failed athlete turned successful sports photographer.

Alex Katz is one of the foremost representatives of American painting in the international art world. In New York in the 1950s, his large-format, stencillike portraits and landscapes set a striking counterpoint to abstract expressionism. Katz developed a signature pictorial language early on, characterized by outlined forms, clear colors, and flatness influenced by the imagery of the cinema, advertising, and fashion. The catalog presents for the first time an overview of Katz’ nude paintings from three decades and recent work and is released to coincide with the eighty-fifth birthday of the artist.

Between Destinations
Photographs by Candace Plummer Gaudiani
Text by Alison Nordström and Jane Reed
The series explores what it means to be part of and sometimes estranged from the places we hold in our memories. The ambiguity of belonging, longing, and estrangement led to the artist’s choice of framing each image through a train window. We are on the inside looking out, reaffirming that we are always between destinations, from birth to the end. Candace Plummer Gaudiani’s work is in public collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; George Eastman House; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The Cleveland Museum of Art; and the Harry Ransom Center for the Humanities, Austin, Texas.

The remarkable true story of a defiant African boy  and his bold quest for freedom

Tewodros Fekadu
“An affirmation of life and the indestructibility of one man’s will to make the most of it.”—Ian Wynne, author of The Pawn and Shadows by My Side, former editor of Human Rights Defender, Amnesty International Born in the midst of the Ethiopian–Eritrean Civil War, Tewodros “Teddy” Fekadu survives abandonment and famine as his family flings him unwanted across borders and regions, into orphanages, and finally onto the streets of Addis Ababa. Spanning five countries and three continents, the Catholic Church, and Japanese detention centers, this is a tale of defiance and triumph, and also of family love—unacknowledged by his wealthy father, abandoned by his desperately poor mother, Teddy is nurtured along the way by staunch individuals despite his ambiguous place in rigid family tradition: his father’s mother, a maternal aunt, a Catholic priest, and even his father’s wife. In 2003, after three years in a Japanese detention center, Tewodros “Teddy” Fekadu won a hard-fought immigration battle, and his visa to Australia was approved. He now resides on the Gold Coast, where he founded an association that shares African traditions and heritage through performance and educational programs. He also works with organizations to resettle African refugees to the Gold Coast. He is an inspirational speaker, presenting to such diverse audiences as adoptive families, human rights groups, and East African immigrants. Tewodros’ company, Moonface Entertainment, produces films and documentaries on East Africa. He regularly returns to Africa to shoot footage for his projects, and travels to the United States to promote his work.
An abandoned Ethiopian boy fights for more than mere survival: acceptance, education, and a life beyond poverty and war.

Leapfrog Press You’re Married to Her?
Ira Wood

As the anti-Vietnam War movement drew to a close, a twenty-six-year-old unknown playwright began an affair with a glamorous older woman, a feminist activist and acclaimed poet/novelist at the height of her career. What she saw in a neurotic, sexually naïve, poorly educated but very sweet guy was apparent to no one, especially him. Using a wildly self-skewering but oddly sympathetic narrative voice that fulfills The New York Times’ assessment of his “special gift for heartwarming comedy,” Ira Wood re-imagines his early years with Marge Piercy in a series of chronologically linked essays, never failing to raise the question that few have failed to ask: You’re married to Her? With the brazen candor of Toby Young’s How to Lose Friends and Alienate People and the wicked lunacy of David Sedaris, Wood tells tales of his first true love, who he told his parents were dead; his disastrous affair with a promiscuous single mother, while he was involved with Piercy; his childhood dependence on speed; and running for public office on a lark—and winning—only to find himself responsible for the government of a small town. Thirty years later he’s still married to Her, confident enough to share, and laugh at, what men do when their behavior slips to the level of their self-esteem.

Long River Press Bamboo Women
Stories from Ming Quong,   a Chinese Orphanage in California

Nona Mock Wyman
“In her groundbreaking new book, Nona Mock Wyman intimately explores the lives of her ‘sisters’ who grew up in the Bay Area’s Ming Quong Chinese orphanage—revealing secrets, pain, and the lifetime legacies of friendship that developed among the girls, who for myriad painful reasons came to call the orphanage home. Beautifully and wrenchingly told, Bamboo Women is a courageous look into a little-known world and an affirmation of the human spirit.”—Karin Evans, author of The Lost Daughters of China In 1935, at the age of two, Nona Mock Wyman was abandoned at the Ming Quong orphanage in Los Gatos, California. From that first, searing memory of seeing her mother walk out of her life forever, Mock turned grief into strength. Bamboo Women tells twenty-one inspiring stories of coming-of-age from the women of Ming Quong, a home for orphaned Chinese girls in the San Francisco Bay Area. Wyman introduces us to her “sisters” and how their bonds of love and friendship carried them through life, love, loss, career, and family. Nona Mock Wyman is the author of Chopstick Childhood (In a Land of Silver Spoons). She lives in Walnut Creek, California.
Powerful and moving stories of Chinese American women who grew up in a San Francisco Bay Area orphanage in the 1940s.

Long River Press Selections From the Book of Songs
Yuanzhong Xu

In seventh moon Fire Star west goes; In ninth we make dresses all day long. By and by warm spring grows And golden orioles sing their song. The lasses take their baskets deep And go along the small pathways To gather tender mulberry leaves in heap When lengthen the vernal days, They pile in heaps the southernwood, Their heart in gloomy mood, For they will say adieu to maidenhood. The Book of Songs, also known as the Confucian Odes, is one of the main pillars of the Chinese classical literary canon. This accessible version of the Book of Songs is designed for general readers and contains historical notes and anecdotes. The Book of Songs is divided into four parts: the Book of Lyrics (Guofeng), the Book of Odes (Xiaoya), the Book of Epics (Daya), and the Book of Hymns (Song). The songs contained herein were collected from the fifteen city-states of the Zhou dynasty (1046–256 BC) and were created not only by the noble classes, but also by working people—farmers, soldiers, and minor government officials; men as well as women. What emerges from this collection is a dynamic and intimate window on traditional life in ancient China.
A new, general interest version of one of the greatest works of Chinese classical prose.

Long River Press Ward Four
A Novel of Wartime China

Ba Jin
Translated by Haili Kong and Howard Goldblatt
“A triumph of humanism in war-ravaged China of the 1940s, this work of autobiographical fiction not only shows Ba Jin at his best, but also demonstrates why he is rightly viewed as the ‘conscience of China.’”—Michelle Yeh, department of East Asian languages, University of California, Davis A major work by a towering figure in twentieth century Chinese literature, Ward Four intimately reveals the frailties and strengths of the human spirit and the will to survive. Set in a hospital in rural China during World War II, it provides a haunting window into the isolation and displacement faced by ordinary citizens. Ba Jin’s hospital ward is a dark corner where life and death intersect and the absurd is transformed into the comic. Amid the uncertainties of war are the foundations of strength and the will to survive during one of the darkest periods of Chinese history. Ba Jin (1904–2005) is widely considered one of China’s greatest literary figures. Haili Kong is professor of Chinese literature at Swarthmore College. Howard Goldblatt is professor of Chinese literature at Notre Dame University.

Manic D Press The Good Life
Fiona Kam Meadley

“Fiona Kam Meadley offers us a selection of thought-provoking stories with a variety of themes that challenges us to question ourselves and the world around us. This distinct book of visually gripping comics and her simple style allow us to personally step inside each story and discover what it truly means to be human in our puzzling modern world.”—David A Beronä, author of Wordless Books: The Original Graphic Novels Weaving philosophical dialogues with lesser-known narratives, this beautifully illustrated debut publication is a call to ponder our universal questions and, in doing so, explore a more reciprocal exchange with the displaced and the dispossessed—the “others” in the hinterlands and beyond. The Good Life documents unheard testimonies from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East and gently interrogates the link between past and present, cultivating empathy across cultures and between generations. Fiona Kam Meadley was born in Malaysia and currently lives and works in Gloucestershire, England. She studied law and worked in Africa and Asia for fifteen years as a development worker, an experience that informs her artistic practice. Her films, videos, and art have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United Kingdom. This is her first book.

An illustrated call to ponder the universal questions and explore a more reciprocal exchange with the displaced and the dispossessed.

MCCM Creations
Hong Kong, China

From MCCM Creations’ entry into the world of book publishing in 2001, its aspirations have remained consistent—to bring readers original and inspiring books from authors and designers who share a passion for books as objects, as well as a strong desire to explore hybrid concepts. Many of our collaborators are local Hong Kong Chinese citizens or long-time foreign residents who have strong connections with Hong Kong and Asia. MCCM titles are concerned with the visualization of experiences, stories, and perceptions through the printed word, images, and sound. In today’s world people move freely across boundaries and inhabit areas of virtual space that intertwine to create new concepts and ways of living. These crossdisciplinary realities are at the core of MCCM—fusing illustration, visual art, design, architecture, photography, sociocultural criticism, and literature. As a result, our published titles do not fit neatly into any single book category, but reflect the growing presence of a reader profile that is both sophisticated and progressive. Our titles fall into two broad categories: visual culture books related to architecture, art, and design in Hong Kong and neighboring regions of East Asia, and illustrated fiction and picture books for children and young adults to nurture intellectual and aesthetic development beyond traditional school syllabi. As part of this educational goal, most of our titles are published in English or in bilingual (Chinese–English) editions.

A collection of over forty recipes and stories recounted by grandparents who came to Hong Kong from China before World War II, Grandma Grandpa Cook is a celebration of the selfless devotion of grandparents to their families, and their contribution to the cultural history of foodways in Hong Kong. Filled with vivid accounts of everyday life during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong and the riots of 1967, all of this history fades into insignificance when food comes into the picture—traditional Cantonese dishes like carrot and green turnip soup, taro in ginger and brown sugar, and sticky rice dumplings.

A critical examination of the evolving changes in Chinese treaty ports over the past 150 years, this study illustrates, through essays and over 230 sketches, the imprints on modernizing cities of older urban spaces which have left physical traces through city plans, streets, and buildings. Noted architect and urban planner Peter Cookson Smith was one of the first specialists involved in planning, urban design, and landscape consultancies in Southeast Asia. He is currently a visiting scholar at the Centre of Asian Studies, the University of Hong Kong, and is vice president of the Hong Kong Institute of Planners and the Hong Kong Institute of Urban Design.

The Urban Design of Impermanence
Streets, Places and Spaces in Hong Kong

Peter Cookson Smith
A companion to The Urban Design of Concession, this volume collects sketches and essays that reflect the evolving character and personality of Hong Kong. Impermanence underlies the urban design language of Hong Kong. Arguably this is a reflection of the embedded philosophy of change inherent in Chinese culture, which tends to impart rather transient values that promote a strong link between the spiritual and the human condition. The idea of using sketches to illustrate the array of street attributes and their collective impact on urban design emerged through a perceived need to add some visual life to a research project on urban regeneration.

Monkfish Book Publishing God of Love
A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam

Mirabai Starr

Though greatly influenced by modern teachers of Eastern spirituality such as Ram Dass, Mirabai Starr has spent her life responding to the call to honor the diversity and celebrate the unity between all paths that lead us home to love. Best known for her translations of the Spanish mystics, in God of Love Starr explores the spiritual roots of Western religion. She provides not only an excellent introduction to the basic beliefs, scriptures, and practices of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, but also a new emerging context called InterSpiritual with which to understand our religiously pluralistic world. Unlike its precursor movement, “interfaith,” which is largely focused on cooperation between religious institutions, an “interspiritual” approach is one that tends to the personal and spiritual dimensions of religion. An interspiritual approach sees and participates in the common roots found in all religious expression. Author of critically acclaimed new translations of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila, Mirabai Starr uses fresh, lyrical language to help make timeless wisdom accessible to a contemporary circle of seekers. As a teenager, Starr lived at the Lama Foundation, an intentional spiritual community that has honored all the world’s faith traditions since its inception in 1967. Starr has been an adjunct professor of philosophy and world religions at the University of New Mexico–Taos since 1993.

New Society Publishers Making Home
Adapting Our Homes and Our Lives to Settle in Place

Sharon Astyk

Other books tell us how to live the good life—but you might have to win the lottery to do it. Making Home is about improving life with the real people around us and the resources we already have. While encouraging us to be more resili­ ent in the face of hard times, author Sharon Astyk also points out the beauty, grace, and elegance that result, because getting the most out of everything we use is a way of transforming our lives into something much more fulfilling. Written from the perspective of a family who has already made this tran­ sition, Making Home shows readers how to turn the challenge of living with less into settling for more—more happiness, more security, and more peace of mind. Learn simple but effective strategies to: • Save money on everything from heating and cooling to refrigeration, laundry, water, sanitation, cooking, and cleaning • Create a stronger, more resilient family • Preserve more for future generations We must make fundamental changes to our way of life in the face of ongo­ ing economic crisis and energy depletion. Making Home takes the fear out of this prospect, and invites us to embrace a simpler, more abundant reality. Sharon Astyk is a writer, teacher, blogger, and farmer whose family uses eighty percent less energy and resources than the average American house­ hold. She is a member of the board of directors of ASPO­USA, founder of the Riot 4 Austerity, and the author of three previous books, including Depletion and Abundance and Independence Days.

New Society Publishers High Steaks
Why and How to Eat Less Meat

Eleanor Boyle

Each year the average North American ingests well over two hundred pounds of animal protein. Meanwhile the global appetite for meat has increased dramati­ cally. But feeding our meat addiction comes at tremendous cost. Maintaining our current level of consumption is ecologically impossible in the long term and undermines our personal health and community well­being. High Steaks documents the disastrous consequences of modern large­scale industrial meat production and excessive consumption, including: • The loss of vast tracts of arable land and fresh water to intensive live­ stock production • Increased pollution, loss of biodiversity, deforestation, and accelerat­ ing climate change • The environmental and health impacts of too much animal fat, and of antibiotics and other chemicals in our food Timely and compelling, this powerful book offers a modest, commonsense approach to a serious problem, suggesting strategies for all of us to cut back on our consumption of animal products and ensure that the meat we do con­ sume is produced in a sustainable, ecologically responsible manner. At the same time, High Steaks describes progressive food policy shifts that will discour­ age factory farming and encourage people to eat in ways that support eco­ systems and personal health. Eleanor Boyle has been teaching and writing for twenty­five years, with a focus on food systems and their social, environmental, and health conse­ quences. As well as working with organizations aiming for better food pol­ icy, she holds an MSc in food policy and is an instructor at the Centre for Sustainability at the University of British Columbia.
What’s the matter with meat? A solution-oriented guide to developing food systems that nourish people and the planet.

New Society Publishers Sacred Acts
How Churches are Working to Protect Earth’s Climate

Mallory McDuff
Foreword by Bill McKibben
From evangelicals to Episcopalians, people of faith are mobilizing to confront climate change. This unique anthology brings together stories from across North America of contemporary church leaders, parishioners, and religious activists who are working to define a new environmental movement, where honoring the Creator means protecting the planet. Sacred Acts documents the diverse actions taken by churches to address cli­ mate change through stewardship, advocacy, spirituality, and justice. Con­ tributions from leading Christian voices such as Norman Wirzba and the Reverend Canon Sally Bingham detail the concrete work of faith communities: • Englewood Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, where parishioners have enhanced food security by sharing canning and food preservation skills in the church kitchen • Georgia’s Interfaith Power & Light, which has used federal stimulus funds to weatherize congregations, reduce utility bills, and cut carbon emissions • Earth Ministry, where people of faith spearheaded the movement to pass state legislation to make Washington State a coal­free state

Sacred Acts shows that churches can play a critical role in confronting climate change—perhaps the greatest moral imperative of our time. This timely col­ lection will inspire individuals and congregations to act in good faith to help protect Earth’s climate. Mallory McDuff teaches environmental education at Warren Wilson College, a unique liberal arts school that combines academics with work and service. A lifelong Episcopalian, she was raised in a family that integrated faith and en­ vironmental stewardship. She is the author of Natural Saints.
Acting in good faith—environmental stewardship through worship, education, advocacy, and action.

New Society Publishers The Interfaith Alternative
Embracing Spiritual Diversity

Steven Greenebaum

Whatever your spiritual path, chances are that the primary tenets of your faith include universal love, acceptance, and compassion. Yet three thousand years after Moses, twenty­five hundred years after the Buddha, two thousand years after Jesus, and fifteen hundred years after Muhammad, we are still divided by our differences. Religious intolerance, discrimination, even persecution and violence make up the not­so­golden rule. The Interfaith Alternative shows us how we can celebrate each other without fear of losing our own identity. It illuminates the path to creating a nurturing spiritual community that honors and includes all religious languages—an al­ ternative to Jews worshiping only with Jews, Christians with Christians, and Muslims with Muslims. In doing so, it demonstrates that through coming together in a mutually supportive environment we can concentrate on our shared desire to remake the world into a compassionate, loving place. At its core, Interfaith is about community and justice. Once we truly em­ brace diversity, we embrace our common humanity. A powerful antidote to the current climate of fear and mistrust, The Interfaith Alternative argues that it is not how we encounter the sacred, but what we do about it that counts—there are positive alternatives to religious lines in the sand. Steven Greenebaum is an Interfaith minister whose experiences directing choirs of different faiths and denominations have helped him to understand the profound wisdom of many spiritual traditions. Steven has dedicated his life to working for social and environmental justice. He is the founder of the Living Interfaith Church in Lynnwood, Washington.
There is no them—there is only us, celebrating our common humanity.

New Society Publishers Share or Die
Voices of the Get Lost Generation in the Age of Crisis

Edited by Malcolm Harris with Neal Gorenflo
Foreword by Cory Doctorow
America stands at a precipice; limitless consumption, reckless economics, and disregard for the environment have put the country on a collision course with disaster. It’s up to a younger generation to rebuild according to new forms of organization, and Share or Die is a collection of messages from the front lines. From urban Detroit to central Amsterdam, and from worker co­operatives to nomadic communities, an astonishing variety of recent graduates and twenty­something experimenters are finding (and sharing) their own an­ swers to negotiating the new economic order. Their visions of a shared fu­ ture include: • Collaborative consumption networks instead of private ownership • Replacing the corporate ladder with a “lattice lifestyle” • Do­it­yourself higher education As a call­to­action, “share or die” doesn’t only refer to resource depletion, disappearing jobs, or stagnating wages. It refers to social death too, and to find­ ing the common sense ideas and practices needed to not only merely survive, but to build a place where it’s worth living. A series of forays into uncharted territory, this graphically rich collection of essays, narratives, and how­tos is an intimate guide to the new economic order and a must­read for anyone at­ tempting to understand what it means to live as part of Generation Y. Malcolm Harris is the Life/Art channel editor and a writer at Shareable and managing editor at The New Inquiry, a criticism site devoted to collecting and promoting the work of young, unaffiliated writers. Neal Gorenflo is the co­founder and publisher of Shareable, a nonprofit on­ line magazine about sharing.
A collection of messages from the front lines of the new “Lost Generation.”

New Society Publishers Mobilizing the Green Imagination
An Exuberant Manifesto

Anthony Weston

Dysfunctional cities, catastrophic climate change, ever­deepening distance from nature—today we see environmental disaster everywhere we look. In Mobilizing the Green Imagination, philosophical provocateur Anthony Weston urges us to move beyond ever more desperate attempts to “green” the status quo to­ ward entirely different and far more inviting ecological visions: • Life after transportation—decentralized work, inventive infill, and self­sufficient micro­communities to facilitate life in place • Adaptation with attitude—cities that welcome the rising waters • A great second chance—moving beyond exploitation of the whole natural world • A cosmic ecology—why not a green space program? These postcards from beyond the leading edge of today’s green thinking are bold, audacious, extravagantly hopeful, and profoundly inspiring—the perfect antidote to the despair brought on by too many “doom and gloom” scenar­ ios. Nothing less than a complete reinvention of contemporary environmen­ talism, Mobilizing the Green Imagination belongs in the back pocket of anyone who dares to dream of a brighter future and a better world. Anthony Weston is professor of philosophy and environmental studies at Elon University in North Carolina, where he teaches ethics, environmental studies, and “Millennial Imagination.” He is the author of twelve other books, including How to Re-Imagine the World and Back to Earth, as well as many articles on ethics, critical thinking, education, and contemporary culture. At Elon, Weston has been named both Teacher of the Year and Scholar of the Year.

New Society Publishers The Resilience Imperative
Cooperative Transitions to a Steady-State Economy

Michael Lewis and Patrick Conaty

We find ourselves between a rock and a hot place—compelled by the inter­ twined forces of peak oil and climate change to reinvent our economic life at a much more local and regional scale. The Resilience Imperative argues for a major SEE (social, ecological, economic) change as a prerequisite for replacing the paradigm of limitless economic growth with a more decentralized, coopera­ tive, steady­state economy. The authors present a comprehensive series of strategic questions within the broad areas of: • • • • • Energy sufficiency Local food systems Interest­free financing Affordable housing and land reform Sustainable community development

Each section is complemented by case studies of pioneering community initiatives rounded out by a discussion of transition factors and resilience reflections. With a focus on securing and sustaining change, this provocative book challenges deeply embedded cultural assumptions. Profoundly hopeful and inspiring, The Resilience Imperative affirms the possibilities of positive change as it is shaped by individuals, communities, and institutions learning to live within our ecological limits. Michael Lewis is the executive director of the Center for Community Enterprise and is well­known internationally as a practitioner, author, educa­ tor, and leader in the field of community economic development. Patrick Conaty is an honorary research fellow at the University of Birmingham and a director of Common Futures. Since 1999 he has worked for the new economics foundation (nef), where he has produced a wide range of publi­ cations about predatory lending, financial inclusion, community land trusts, and social venture finance.

Nobrow Press
London, England

Nobrow Press was set up in November 2008 to provide a vibrant and innovative publishing platform for comics, illustration, and the graphic arts. We champion the very best talent in the field and nurture artist-led content like no other publisher in the market. Our library is representative of a wide variety of subject matter and narrative content using only the best illustrators, cartoonists, and artists from around the globe. We see books as things to be enjoyed, not only for their didactic or recreational content, but as beautiful objects: to be cherished, coveted, and collected. This has led to a very distinctive house style that combines a deep knowledge of traditional printmaking with the industrial processes widely used today. We have perfected a spot color printing technique that is unique to a handful of publishers worldwide: a process that uses hand mixed Pantones, as opposed to the more conventional CMYK printing method. This gives the books a unique artisanal quality that harkens to a time when printing was in its very prime. Our books are as beautiful in the flesh as the stories they tell and this, together with the collaboration of an ever-expanding community of internationally renowned artists, makes us one of the leading proponents of the book as object, artwork, and collector’s item. In keeping with our commitment to an environmentally responsible future in print we also aim to manufacture our books with high ethical production standards, going the extra distance to use sustainable paper and inks.

Nobrow Press Nobrow 6: The Double
Edited by Alex Spiro and Sam Arthur

“Reports of print’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, as proven by Nobrow’s alluring, jewel-like publications, truly special books to treasure and caress.”—Paul Gravett, author of Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life This will be an entirely new incarnation of our biannual journal as we double the number of pages to include comics and graphic short stories. At 120 pages it not only presents the very best of illustration talent out there, but also devotes half of its pages to the world of comics, where we showcase talent from the established as well as the new, all the while keeping true to our Nobrow spot color aesthetic. The theme of this issue The Double explores the sinister concept of the doppelganger, one that has appeared in literature and mythology since our earliest written records. From Greek and Norse mythology to Percy Bysshe Shelley, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, John Donne, and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the idea has held the human imagination, fascinating and terrifying us in equal measure. Now we turn it over to sixty illustrators and graphic storytellers to interpret as they wish, each taking on one double page spread. Includes illustrations from: Andrea Kalfas, Katja Spitzer, Gwenola Carrere, Viviane Swartz, Golden Cosmos, Chuck Groenink, and many more. Includes comics from: Kevin Huizenga, John Martz, Gemma Correll, Matthew Forsythe, Michael DeForge, Roman Muradov, Scott MacDonald, Malachi Ward, Luc Melanson, Ana Albero, and many others. With a cover by award-winning cartoonist and illustrator Tom Gauld. Alex Spiro and Sam Arthur are creative directors of Nobrow Press, based in London, England.
The new format for our critically acclaimed magazine combines comics and illustration in a collectible 120-page volume.

Nobrow Press A Graphic Cosmogony
Edited by Alex Spiro
Introduction by Paul Gravett

“A Graphic Cosmogony is the first anthology from publishers Nobrow Press. This is a Nobrow equivalent of McSweeney’s albeit with a very deliberate theme. The twenty-four artists in A Graphic Cosmogony tackle creation in a fitting seven pages each—each one becoming that shamanic presence, creating their own wild, imaginative versions to answer that perennial question: ‘how did we get here?’ . . . A damn fine read!”—Forbidden Planet International “The Biblical creation myth proposes that God created the world in seven days, or six plus one day off to chill out, so in that spirit the two-dozen cartoonist-shamans corralled into this compendium were given just seven pages to devise their own version of how we all got here. . . . Entire world faiths have been built on equally unlikely accounts. Perhaps if enough readers of this volume start believing in certain stories, they might cause a spate of new religions to spring up based upon them. Pull up a rock and gather round the flickering fire—the universe is about to be born again.”—From the introduction by freelance journalist, curator, and lecturer Paul Gravett, co-author of Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life (Laurence King Publishing, 2005) Features contributions from artists such as Stuart Kolakovic, Ben Newman, Mike Bertino, Brecht Vandenbroucke, and Luke Pearson.

Nobrow Press Quodlibet
Katja Spitzer and Sebastian Gievert

Inspired by the late, great Georges Perec, who is famous for writing a book whose sole subject was the letter E, illustrator Katja Spitzer and freelance writer Sebastian Gievert teamed up to tackle the letter Q. Katja explains that in the German language, as in English, Q is a rather peculiar letter. One of the rarest in the German language, Q is only given a fleeting position in the Brockhaus Lexicon (an equivalent to our Encyclopaedia Britannica), a mere forty-five pages of Q words, falling somewhere in the middle of a volume entitled PES–RAC, in spite of granting an individual volume to every other letter in the alphabet. Feeling that the letter was given undue negligence, Katja took it upon herself to create the missing “Q” volume of the lexicon and thus Quodlibet was born. Translated from the German, this edition contains several new Q letter entries to replace those from the original text that didn’t have direct English language equivalents. Quodlibet covers everything from famous Grindhouse movie directors, to obscure eighteenth century dances, to nature’s marvels and ancient Chinese mythological beasts, each illustrated with mastery in four unique spot colors.

Katja Spitzer is a freelance illustrator in Berlin, Germany. Quodlibet, her final major project at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig, won her the prestigious 3 x 3 Illustration Gold Medal in 2010. Sebastian Gievert is a freelance writer and journalist based in Berlin, Germany.

Nobrow Press Klaus
Richard Short

“One part Peanuts, one part Jim Woodring’s Frank, Klaus transplants the myogenic spirit of the classic strip comic into a new, slightly stranger yet similarly robust body. Like a Hunt 102-weilding Victor Frankenstein, Short isn’t afraid to experiment, and readers may soon find themselves absorbed in the witty, contemplative, and warped world of cat-people, humanoid rodents, and metaphysical ruminations.”—Martin Steenton Visually informed by Richard Short’s love of classic comic strips, Charles Schulz’ Peanuts, and Tove Jansson’s Moomins, Klaus explores the un-adventures of the eponymous character, a pensive anthropomorphic cat; the inappropriately specie-d romantic interests of a vexatious supporting cast of anthropomorphic rats; and Klaus’ libertarian doppelganger Otto. This sixty-page collection includes the best of Short’s short self-published comics together with all-new never seen before material. Richard Short, originally a wills lawyer based in the northeast of England, recently made the unlikely but successful transition to cartoonist and illustrator. He lives in London, United Kingdom.

Nobrow Press Everything We Miss
Luke Pearson

“Everything We Miss is Luke Pearson’s breakthrough graphic novella, in which he brilliantly wrong-foots your every expectation, fluttering between surreal humor and deep pathos and proving the unique visual-verbal alchemy of comics to capture the ephemeral and symbolize the rawest emotions.” —Paul Gravett, editor of 1001 Comics To Read Before You Die On the dawn horizon, a pine tree all too briefly uproots itself. It dances . . . and nobody sees. The low drone of the car’s engine is heard and ignored from sleepy bedroom windows for miles around. Have you ever wondered what goes on in your life when you’re looking the other way? Perhaps you’re so drawn into what’s going on with you that you fail to notice the events taking place in your periphery—or even right under your nose? In Everything We Miss, Luke Pearson explores the dying days of a failing relationship through the infinitesimal unseen moments that surround it—and us. Pearson’s most ambitious project to date is a poignant and empathetic graphic novella from one of the most exciting young creators in British comics. As well as an essential showcase of Pearson’s astonishing visual storytelling ability, this is a book for anyone who’s ever experienced loss, or agonized about what they have yet to find. Luke Pearson, a comic book artist, author, and illustrator, lives in Tamworth, United Kingdom.
A magical realist mini masterpiece by the United Kingdom’s rising star Luke Pearson.

“Birchfield Close is comics as a theme, a mood, poetry perhaps. Evoking so much, saying little on the surface, yet what the reader takes away is a profound sense of wonder. Beautiful.”—Forbidden Planet In his first graphic novella, Jon McNaught captures the beauty and peacefulness of our childhood neighborhoods and transports us back to those clear evenings dotted with pink fluffy clouds and the sound of silence we have come to yearn for after years of living in the bustle of the city.

Blexbolex’s first full-length graphic novel is as beautiful as it is disturbing. This book employs Nobrow’s spot color print process, only used by a handful of publishers worldwide.

Jesse Moynihan

Since the dawn of history, we have sought to understand our existence through creationist fables of omnipotent deities and mythical creatures. Jesse Moynihan takes these fifty thousand years of socio-religious postulation and throws them in the blender to create one epic—and irreverent—battle royal between alien gods, ancient Greek titans, interplanetary assassin droids, and humanity itself. An eon-spanning comedy, Forming details the spawning of worlds and the trajectory of consciousness on Earth. The first in a trilogy of books, Nobrow collects the first volume of Moynihan’s acclaimed webcomic in a specially designed graphic novel with a foil debossed cloth spine.

Malevolent Melody

It’s rare that a comic book is given its own soundtrack, rarer still when the soundtrack is written by the comic’s own illustrator! With Malevolent Melody, Mcbess has given us both in one neat package. The story centers on the exploits of shipwrecked amnesiac McB, whose attempts to remember the melody of a certain song trigger spontaneous choruses from pirates, alpine giants, and Amazonian women. Accompanied by a vinyl 7” featuring songs by Mcbess’ band The Dead Pirates, the book’s pages are lit up by the pulsating rhythm and blues recorded to sync and mimic the comic’s storyline.

Nortia Press Malena
Edgardo David Holzman

“Like a true tanguera, Holzman’s narrative ‘flicks and walks and pencil turns’ with passion, authority and style.”—Meghan Nuttall Sayres, author of Anahita’s Woven Riddle and Night Letter Set in Buenos Aires and Washington, DC, during Argentina’s “Dirty War,” Malena is the story of ordinary lives ensnared in a web of hidden horror. Kevin Solórzano (Solo) is an American interpreter who finds himself grappling with the government atrocities he discovers, while Diego Fioravanti is an Argentine army captain who moonlights as a tango instructor. Rivals for the love of the same woman, the two men find their parallel paths converging, as their journey to the depths of the regime’s terror will sear their souls and challenge their humanity. Edgardo David Holzman is intimately familiar with Argentina’s military dictatorship, which serves as the backdrop for Malena. Born in Buenos Aires and currently living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Holzman has law degrees from both Argentina and the United States. As an attorney and translator, Holzman has worked on numerous human rights-related projects for international organizations, including the compilation of Nunca Más (Never Again), the 1984 report of the Argentine National Commission on the Disappeared. Malena is his debut novel.

Ocean Press Remembering Che
My Life with Che Guevara

Aleida March
For the first time, Aleida March evokes the memories of her partner, Ernesto Che Guevara. She describes their great romance and life together from the days when they first met as fellow guerrillas in Cuba’s revolutionary war up to the tragic moment when she learned of Che’s assassination in Bolivia less than a decade later. As Che’s widow, Aleida writes with passion and poignancy of their shared political dreams for the future and their family. Never before have readers been offered such an intimate insight into the man behind one of the great political symbols of our time. Includes one hundred intimate photographs taken from the private family albums of Che with his children and his wife, including the last photographs of Che and Aleida together when Che had disguised himself in preparation for his secret mission to Bolivia. Also includes facsimiles of postcards and letters Che sent to his family from abroad, as well as poems written to Aleida and a moving short story sent from Africa. This book reveals Aleida’s own great strength and courage as she came to terms with her private loss while under the international spotlight of millions of others who also mourned the death of a world-famous revolutionary, perhaps comparable to Yoko Ono after the death of John Lennon. She also describes her efforts to raise her four children as ordinary children despite their father’s legendary status in Cuba and abroad. Aleida March is currently the director of the Che Guevara Studies Center, Cuba.
Che Guevara’s widow reveals the story of a great revolutionary romance, tragically cut short by Che’s assassination in Bolivia.

Ocean Press Diary of a Combatant

The publication of this title by Ocean Sur in Spanish in July 2011 provoked considerable international attention (including CNN). This never-beforepublished diary (comprising a dozen small notebooks) Ernesto Che Guevara kept during the guerrilla war in Cuba when he joined the struggle to overthrow the Batista dictatorship that led to the 1959 revolution has now been meticulously transcribed by his widow, Aleida March. Why did it take over fifty years for this diary to be published? Maybe because of some caustic comments Che makes in his usual brutally frank style. Maybe it was felt appropriate to wait until Fidel Castro had produced his own memoirs (now published by Ocean Press as The Strategic Victory). In launching the book in Havana in July 2011, editor María del Carmen Ariet marked that it was “never clear whether or not Che wanted these diaries published” as he had reworked several pieces into his famous Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War, on which Steven Soderbergh based part one of his epic movie Che, starring Benicio Del Toro. Nevertheless, all Che’s diaries—from his early Motorcycle Diaries and its sequel, Latin America Diaries, through to his last diary from Bolivia—are extraordinary examples of his literary gift and his political incisiveness, in terms of his personal reflections, his criticisms and self-criticism, and his observations about others and events. Other features of this new book are fifty-eight unpublished photographs from Che’s personal archive and unpublished letters (including correspondence between Che and Fidel), an index, and extensive glossary.
Che Guevara’s original, unpublished diaries from the guerrilla war in Cuba’s Sierra Maestra.

Process Get Your Pitchfork On!
The Real Dirt on Country Living

Kristy Athens

For hard-working office workers Kristy Athens and husband Michael, farming was a romantic dream. After purchasing farm land in Oregon’s beautiful Columbia Gorge, Athens and hubby were surprised to learn that the realities of farming were challenging and unexpected. Get Your Pitchfork On! provides the hard-learned nuts-and-bolts of rural living from city folk who were initially out of their depth. Practical and often hilarious, Get Your Pitchfork On! reads like a twenty-first century Egg and I. Get Your Pitchfork On! gives urban professionals the practical tools they need to realize their dream, with basics of home, farm, and hearth. It also enters territory that other books avoid—straightforward advice about the social aspects of country living, from health care to schools to small-town politics. Kristy Athens doesn’t shy away from controversial subjects, such as having guns and hiring undocumented migrant workers. An important difference between Get Your Pitchfork On! and other farm/country books is that the author’s initial country experiment failed. Ravaged by the elements, the economy, and the social structure of their rural area, Athens and husband sold their farm and retreated to Portland, Oregon, in 2009. This gave Athens the freedom to write honestly about her extraordinary experience. Having learned from mistakes, both Kristy and her husband are currently saving up to buy another farm, and this time to live a practical dream rather than an uninformed nightmare. Kristy Athens’ nonfiction and short stories have been published in a number of magazines, newspapers, and literary journals, most recently High Desert Journal, Barely South Review, and the anthology Mamas and Papas. In 2010, she was a writer-in-residence for the Eastern Oregon Writer-in-Residence program and Soapstone. This is her first book.

The Filthy Reality of Everyday Life

Rosie Cox, Elizabeth Pisani, and Robin Nagre
Our relationship with dirt is complex and ambivalent. Dirt is waste, excrement, rubbish, bacteria—but what then is soil, where crops grow, and to which our bodies eventually return? Dirt may pose significant risks to our health, but it is also vital to our existence. Lavishly illustrated, this exciting and often startling book is a provocative introduction to a vast and complex subject. Five writers and a graphic novelist pursue different themes from a range of perspectives in order to examine dirt and its contradictions, including personal grooming, the politics of dirt in the home, city sanitation, and waste disposal.

Pushkin Press
London, England

“Uncork your best Tokay to toast the Pushkin Press.”—Alberto Manguel Pushkin Press publishes translations of classic and contemporary literature that change the way you look at the world. Although we are justly proud of our Anglo-Saxon traditions of fiction writing, we tend to ignore the parallel universes of non-Anglophone writing. Literature from other cultures often demonstrates a willingness to embrace emotions and passions eschewed by the Anglophone sensibility. It not only offers us alternative visions of the world, but also of ourselves. This cultural exchange strengthens and enriches our own literary tradition. Against all commercial odds, we choose to publish translations of foreign-language classics as well as to champion young contemporary writers who we believe reflect the extraordinary qualities of their illustrious predecessors. That’s why you’ll find a first-time writer such as the Tuscan Filippo Bologna, or Campiello Europa prize-winner Pietro Grossi, rubbing shoulders with literary luminaries such as Hermann Hesse, Italo Svevo, and Stefan Zweig. It’s also why Philip Pullman described our list as “one of the most imaginative and eclectic I’ve seen. . . . A small box full of treasure.” Every book Pushkin Press publishes involves passion in some form or other. There is that of the enthusiast who inspired us to publish the esoteric and little-known masterpiece (take Antal Szerb’s Journey by Moonlight, now our most successful title); there is the undeniable passion for life and love that all our authors evoke; and there is our undiminished passion for the books we produce. We strive to publish books that will enthrall, delight, and linger in our readers’ thoughts long after they have closed our small, beautiful volumes.

Pushkin Press Three Lives
A Biography of Stefan Zweig

Oliver Matuschek
Translated by Allan Blunden
“It will definitely be regarded as the authoritative Stefan Zweig biography in the future.”—Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung This is the authorized biography of the world-famous Austrian writer Stefan Zweig. It includes the sort of personal detail conspicuously absent from Zweig’s memoir The World of Yesterday, offering us a glimpse into the private world of this master of psychological insight. Drawing on a wealth of sources held by the Zweig estate, to which Oliver Matuschek had unique access, he recounts the eventful life of a writer spoilt by success, which changed direction under the influence of contemporary events and ended tragically in a suicide pact with his second wife Lotte. The title Three Lives refers to the three major phases in Zweig’s life—his years of apprenticeship, his years of success as a professional “working writer” in Salzburg, and finally his years of exile in Britain, the United States, and Brazil. Oliver Matuschek studied politics and modern history, has co-authored several documentaries, and has published numerous works, most recently I Know the Magic of Writing: Catalogue and History of the Autograph Collection of Stefan Zweig (2005).

The Writing of Art
Olivier Berggruen
This collection of essays offers different ways of seeing twentieth-century art via the medium of aesthetics. Each essay explores a different vision: Pablo Picasso’s Mercure, Paul Klee’s work from the thirties, Yves Klein’s concept of the Void, Ed Ruscha’s gunpowder drawings, and Cy Twombly’s Bacchus paintings. Having curated exhibitions on the majority of these artists, Olivier Berggruen’s acquaintance with their work is profound, and his approach both scholarly and highly intimate. Olivier Berggruen lives in New York and has curated museum exhibitions devoted to Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Yves Klein, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Ed Ruscha.

Saqi Books Self-Criticism After the Defeat
Sadik al-Azm
Foreword by Fouad Ajami Introduction by Faisal Darraj
“A unique book. . . . al-Azm sought to strip Arab thought of its belief in fate and folk tales and superstition. . . . He told his people the sort of truths that outsiders are too embarrassed to tell, even when they were themselves able to see these truths.”—Fouad Ajami The 1967 War—which led to the defeat of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt by Israel— felt like an unprecedented and unimaginable disaster for the Arab world at the time. For many, the easiest solution was to shift the blame and to ignore some of the glaring defects of Arab society. Hailed as one of the foremost Arab intellectuals of recent decades, Sadik al-Azm was one of the few to challenge such a view in his seminal Self-Criticism After the Defeat. In it, he offered a penetrating analysis that probed deep into Arab society, and reasoned that Arabs had to embrace democracy, gender equality, and science to achieve progress. Self-Criticism After the Defeat represents a milestone in modern Arab intellectual history. It marked a turning point in Arab discourse about society and politics on publication in 1968, and spawned other intellectual ventures into Arab self-criticism. This is the first translation of the work into English. Born in Damascus in 1934, Sadik al-Azm is professor emeritus of modern European philosophy at the University of Damascus, Syria. He earned his PhD (1961) from Yale University, and was visiting professor in the department of near Eastern studies at Princeton University until 2008.
The landmark book that marked a turning point in Arab discourse about society and politics on its publication in 1968.

Saqi Books Legends of the Caucasus
David Hunt

The Caucasus has an extremely rich folk literature, almost unknown among English speakers, which includes myths, legends, magical tales, anecdotes, and proverbs. The one hundred and one legends included in this book reflect the cultures of fourteen different ethnic groups—their dynamism and the matters that concerned them: survival against external dangers, the risk of starvation, and the persistence of the family or clan as a coordinated group. Descended from an oral tradition, much of their knowledge was retained in memories and passed down the generations. Yet, with the introduction of the alphabet, the way of life they portray is rapidly becoming extinct. The translation is derived from the manuscripts of Russian collectors working out of the Russian Empire in the late nineteenth century and from the Soviet Union in the mid-twentieth century. The text is a mixture of prose and verse, reflecting how the legends would have been performed by storytellers within the culture. This volume includes a map, bibliography, appendix, glossary, keyword and theme analysis, and references.

Social Mobilization in Times of Risk

Edited by Samir Khalaf and Roseanne Saad Khalaf
In 2011 thousands of Arab youth took to the streets revealing the genesis of a new generation sparked by the desire for civil liberties and participatory democracy. Arab Youth explores the antecedents of the upheavals and anticipates alternative venues of resistance that marginalized youth—from Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine to Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Iran—can mobilize to realize their emancipatory expectations. Samir Khalaf is a professor of sociology at the American University of Beirut. He has held academic positions at Princeton, Harvard, MIT, and New York University. Roseanne Saad Khalaf is associate professor of English and creative writing at the American University of Beirut.

Sexuality in Islam
Abdelwahab Bouhdiba

Arguing that Islam is a lyrical view of life in which sexuality enjoys a privileged status, this work represents an attempt to integrate the religious and the sexual. It examines the problem of whether this harmony of sexuality and religious faith is achieved in practice. Born in 1932 in Kairouan, Tunisia, Abdelwahab Bouhdiba is professor of Islamic sociology at the University of Tunis, where he is also director of the Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches Economiques et Sociales. He has served as an adviser to international organizations such as UNESCO and the United Nations. He was awarded the Sharjah Prize for Arab Culture in 2004.

Drawing on both Arabic and Western sources, the author describes the place of sexuality in the traditional Islamic world view.

Sarabande Books The 6.5 Practices of Moderately Successful Poets
A Self-Help Memoir

Jeffrey Skinner
A private eye turned moderately successful poet leads readers on a satiric, hopeful tour of how to make a life in the arts, while still having a life. Revealing, hilarious, and peppered with sly takes on the ins and outs of contemporary American poetry (chapters include “The Silence of the Iambs,” “The Revisionarium, Ask Dr. Frankenpoem,” and “The Periodic Table of Poetic Elements”), Jeffrey Skinner offers advice, candor, and wit. Revision is the process a poem endures to become its best self. Or, if you are the poet, you are the process a poem endures to become its best self. Endures because a first draft, like all other objects in the universe, has inertia and would prefer to stay where it is. The poet must not collaborate. Best self because the poem is more like a person than a thing, and does not strenuously object to personification. Yo, poem. But let’s not get carried away. It’s your poem and you can treat it as you wish; sweet talk it; push it around if that’s what it takes. Alfred Hitchcock notoriously said of the actors in his movies, “They are cattle.” Jeffrey Skinner is the author of five books of poetry, most recently Salt Water Amnesia (Ausable Press, 2005). His poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Nation, The American Poetry Review, Poetry, BOMB, and The Paris Review, and his work has earned awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Ingram Merrill Foundation, and the Howard Foundation.
Everything you wanted to know about being a moderately successful poet, but were too tired to ask.

“Binder has gone so deeply, and with such mystical brilliance and loyalty, into her own world that she has brought mine to me in high relief. She both casts a spell and breaks it. To experience Rise is to experience wonder.” —Laura Kasischke The stories in Rise are fairytales, except that the witch, lucky Hans, and the frog prince are characters at the fringes of everyday life.

Sarabande Books Syzygy, Beauty
An Essay

T Fleischmann

“T Fleischmann’s Syzygy, Beauty shimmers with confidence as it tours the surreal chaos of gender, art, and desire. Its declarative sentences—seductive, abject, caustic, moving, informative, and utterly inventive—herald a new world, one in which we are blessedly ‘here with outfits like strings of light and no future.’ I hail its weirdness, its ‘armpit frankess,’ its indelible portrait of occulted relation, and above all, its impeccable music.”—Maggie Nelson Construction becomes quiet, the saw buzz and the bang little white wisps that stop at my edges. We’ll get used to most anything, at least enough to keep going. The will of the wisp. I want to poke a hole in my words so that people notice you are not here. Comfortable divots you could fill some day, if you wanted to. My mother sighs, my friends sigh. “You’re so sad,” they say. I’m not, I’m really not. I’m just trying to breathe fully. The shadow of the mountain turns with the day, encroaching. When it settles on me I put the hammer down and walk to where it is still warm. In Syzygy, Beauty, T Fleischmann builds an essay of prose blocks, weaving together observations on art, the narrator’s construction of a house, and a direct address to a lover. Playing with scale and repetition, we are kept off-center, and therefore always looking, as the speaker leads us through an intimate relationship that is complicated and deepened by multiple partners, gender transitions, and itinerancy.
A book-length lyric essay triangulating between contemporary art, the construction of a house, and the direct address of a lover. Marketing Plans

Serpent’s Tail Black By Design
A 2-Tone Memoir

Pauline Black

“The best voice that ever graced 2-Tone.”—Rolling Stone “The iconic queen of ska. . . . It’s gritty, witty, and compelling.”—Elle Lead singer for platinum-selling 2-Tone band The Selecter, Pauline Black has been in the music business for over thirty years. The only woman in a movement dominated by men, she was very much the Queen of British Ska. She saw The Specials, Madness, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, and all the other top bands of that generation at their very best . . . and worst. Black was born in 1953 of Anglo-Jewish/Nigerian parents. Adopted by a white, working class family in the fifties, Pauline was always made to feel different, both by the local community and members of her extended family, who saw her at best as a curiosity, at worst as an embarrassing inconvenience. Weaving her rise to fame and recollections of the 2-Tone phenomenon with her moving search for her birth parents, Black By Design is a funny and enlightening memoir of music and roots. Pauline Black is a singer and actress who gained fame as the lead singer of seminal 2-Tone band The Selecter. The band’s new album was released in September 2011.
A powerful autobiography from the frontwoman of the influential ska band The Selecter.

Small Beer Press A Stranger in Olondria
a novel

Sofia Samatar

Jevick, the pepper merchant’s son, has been raised on stories of Olondria, a distant land where books are as common as they are rare in his home. When his father dies and Jevick takes his place on the yearly selling trip to Olondria, Jevick’s life is as close to perfect as he can imagine. But just as he revels in Olondria’s Rabelaisian Feast of Birds, he is pulled drastically off course and becomes haunted by the ghost of an illiterate young girl. In desperation, Jevick seeks the aid of Olondrian priests and quickly becomes a pawn in the struggle between the empire’s two most powerful cults. Yet even as the country shimmers on the cusp of war, he must face his ghost and learn her story before he has any chance of becoming free by setting her free: an ordeal that challenges his understanding of art and life, home and exile, and the limits of that seductive necromancy, reading. A Stranger in Olondria is a skillful and immersive debut fantasy novel that pulls the reader in deeper and deeper with twists and turns reminiscent of George R. R. Martin and Joe Hill. Sofia Samatar is an American of Somali and Swiss German Mennonite background. She wrote A Stranger in Olondria in Yambio, south Sudan, where she worked as an English teacher. She has worked in Egypt and is pursuing a PhD in African languages and literature at the University of Madison, Wisconsin.
Jevik travels to the city of Olondria where he is overtaken by a ghost from his past.

South End Press Making Peace With the Earth: Beyond Land Wars And Food Wars
Vandana Shiva
“One of the world’s most prominent radical scientists.”—Guardian Pitting humans against the earth, and placing them outside the earth community, is an outmoded, fossilized legacy of capitalist patriarchy and mechanistic thought that gave us fossil-fuel based industrialism and colonialism and is now imposing militarized growth on communities. If our species is to survive, we must re-imbed ourselves in the earth and become part of the earth community. We must reawaken our duties to protect the earth and our rights as earth citizens to a fair share of her gifts. For this we need to revisit our concepts of growth and prosperity. Making peace with the Earth begins with a paradigm shift from the mechanistic ideas of the earth as dead matter to the earth as Gaia, a living planet, our mother. We need a new paradigm for living on the Earth because the old one is clearly not working. An alternative is now a survival imperative for the human species. And the alternative that is needed is not only at the level of tools, it is at the level of our world view. How do we look at ourselves in this world? What are humans for? And are we merely a money-making and resource guzzling machine? Or do we have a higher purpose, a higher end? Winner of the Sydney Peace Prize, Vandana Shiva is an internationally renowned physicist, activist, and best-selling author of many books, including Staying Alive, Earth Democracy, and Soil Not Oil.
In her boldest work yet, Vandana Shiva confronts a world on fire— and places its fate directly in our hands.

South End Press Something Fierce
Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter

Carmen Aguirre

“Something Fierce is raw, courageously honest, and funny; an insightful journey into the formation of a revolutionary soul.”—The Globe and Mail In Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, renowned actor Carmen Aguirre skillfully pilots readers straight into her girlhood initiation into a revolutionary family and ultimate decision, at age nineteen, to commit herself to the life of a radical. With vivid immediacy, Aguirre paints the political context and intimate experience of 1980s-era South American struggles against neo-liberal dictatorships: What does it feel like to be a child in the gun sights of Augusto Pinochet’s henchmen? How did the US-backed governments of revolutionary Latin America collaborate in eliminating dissent at the cost of a still untold number of ruined lives? Refreshingly frank, personable, and often wry, Something Fierce recalls the work of Gioconda Bellí and Assata Shakur, paying special attention to the particular demands made of revolutionary women—to leave the raising of their children to others or directly involve them in struggle, to eschew romantic love for revolutionary action, to embrace “revolution” over “culture.” A literal page-turner, Something Fierce reveals how “normal” people confront a life of privation and communal action, of terror alongside an unerring dedication that offers its own satisfactions. Bearing witness to the costs, beauty, and even seductions of resistance, Aguirre impels us to question: Do we choose revolution, or does revolution choose us? Carmen Aguirre is an award-winning playwright and actor with extensive credits in US and Canadian theater, film, and television.

Crazy for Kanji


Talonbooks Maleficium
Martine Desjardins
Translated by Fred A. Reed and David Homel

“Magnificent blasphemy; a whiff of scandal.”—Pascale Millot, Montréal centre-ville “The world that Martine Desjardins presents with such admirable skill in Maleficium is inhabited by fear and desire, and its reality has unsuspected depths. With its surprises, exotic voyages, and shimmering descriptions, this book is a pure pleasure to read.”—Canada Council for the Arts In Maleficium, Martine Desjardins delivers to readers the unexpurgated revelations of Vicar Jerome Savoie, a heretic Catholic priest who has violated the sanctity of the confessional. In Savoie’s confession-within-a-confession, seven penitents, each afflicted with a debilitating malady or struck with a crippling deformity, relates his encounter with an enigmatic young woman whose lips bear a striking scar. As they penetrate deep into Ethiopia in search of wingless locusts, hunt for fly-whisks among the clove plantations of Zanzibar, bargain for saffron in a Srinagar bazaar, search for the rarest frankincense, pursue the coveted hawksbill turtle in the Sea of Oman, seek the formula for sabon Nablus in Palestine, or haggle over Persian carpets in the royal gardens of Shiraz, each of the men falls victim to his own secret vice. The men’s individual forms of punishment are revealed through the agency of the young woman, and are wrought upon their bodies. Martine Desjardins is a freelance writer, translator, and journalist for L’actualité magazine. Fred A. Reed is an author, award-winning translator, and international journalist specializing in Middle Eastern affairs. Author and translator David Homel also works as a journalist, editor, and screenwriter.
The fourth and most acclaimed of Martine Desjardins’ novels creates a sensual and exotic world combining history, magic, and the bizarre.

Turkana Boy
Jean-François Beauchemin
Translated by Jessica Moore

This surrealist narrative is punctuated with magnificent musings on the world and startling questions about what it means to be alive. France-Quebec Prize–winner Jean-François Beauchemin is acclaimed for his meditative, poetic literary style and his attentiveness to the intimate cohabitation of body and soul.

Talonbooks Bunion Derby
Colin Browne

With sharply contending perspectives, Colin Browne unearths a fragmentary history of the twentieth century—what is unspoken, denied, transformed, or swept under the rug. Herman Melville, Igor Stravinsky, Sigmund Freud, Stefan Zweig, Duke Ellington, Mrs. Humphrey Ward, Jeanne d’Arc, Richard Strauss, Walter Guinness, André Breton, George Bowering, and many others flow through a ferocious artistic process that collapses subject and object, much as painter Cy Twombly does in his Lepanto series. Writer, filmmaker, teacher, critic, and poet Colin Browne is the author of Ground Water, which was nominated for the Governor General’s Award for Poetry and a BC Book Prize in 2003.

Chinese Blue
Weyman Chan

In Chinese Blue, drawing upon more than two thousand years of ancient Chinese tradition that present diverse philosophical modes of being, the poet “character” sifts through the earth’s long history of geological layering and forgetting, grappling with the perpetual fragmentation of identity and notions of a creator, wading through jazzily visionary delineations of the modern city, numbed and soundly crushed between “the word and the thing.” Weyman Chan won the 2003 Alberta Book Award for Before a Blue Sky Moon and his second book, Noise from the Laundry, was nominated for the 2008 Governor General’s Award for Poetry.

Talonbooks Davie Street Translations
Daniel Zomparelli

Davie Street Translations is a witty, lively documentary-style series of poems about North American gay male culture. With versified musical machismo after the San Francisco Renaissance poets, riffing to the tune of mononymous deities Beyoncé, Madonna, Barbra, and Gaga, this home-brewed Catullus flirts with the very concept of “translation,” emphasizing an aesthetic sensibility that pervades the wireless shell of personal relations, facing up to HIV fears, drug culture, porn fantasy, gay-bashing, and the aftermath of love letters on Craigslist.

Michael McClure

Specks assumes the form of a blastula, offering a poetic model of embryonic development that arises from the cellular division known as “cleavage,” transcending the proprioceptive methodology of Charles Olson and entering an Aristotelian realm of metaphysical questions that broach matters scientific and mystical, exploring the properties, powers, and limitations of the physical-poetic body, as exponent of its own consciousness. Michael McClure is the recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, an Obie Award for Best Play, a Rockefeller grant for playwriting, the Josephine Miles Award, and the Alfred Jarry Award. He often performs his poetry with Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek.

Rosie’s meandering monologue delivers a blistering de-glorification of war as it shifts back and forth between his wartime recollections and the present. The veteran’s clattering, fast-paced description of life—and death— on the Front reproduces the chaotic sounds and rhythm of battle. Cast of one man.

Talonbooks Tombs of the Vanishing Indian
Marie Clements

As part of the federal government’s assimilationist termination and relocation policies of the 1950s, three Native sisters and their mother are moved from Oklahoma to Los Angeles. As these four women try to re-establish connections to a new land, each finds herself lost. The narrative interweaves with another historical injustice—the forced sterilization of thousands of Native women in the 1970s. Inspired by true events, the play is a poetic excavation of the lost stories of displaced Aboriginal people. Cast of four women and three men.

Mischa Hiller

Winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book for Europe and South Asia. “A stunning, defiant debut.”—Guardian “Hiller brings to his works not only a craftsman’s skill but also a compassion for his characters that proves infectious.”—Haaretz “A chilling rites-of-passage novel set in Beirut in 1982 during the killings in the camps.”—The Economist It is the summer of 1982 and Beirut is under siege. Eighteen-year-old Ivan’s parents have just been evacuated from the city with other members of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Ivan stays on, interpreting for international medical volunteers in Sabra refugee camp and working undercover for the PLO. Hoping to get closer to Eli, a Norwegian physiotherapist, he helps her treat Youssef, a camp orphan disabled by a cluster bomb. An unexpected friendship develops between the three and things begin to look up. But events take a nasty turn when the president-elect is assassinated. The Israeli army enters Beirut and surrounds the camp, with Eli and Youssef trapped inside. What happens next makes international headlines and leaves Ivan scrabbling to salvage something positive from the chaos. Mischa Hiller, of English–Palestinian descent, was born in England in 1962 and grew up in London, Dar es Salaam, and Beirut. Mischa won the 2009 European Independent Film Festival script competition for his adaptation of Sabra Zoo. He lives with his family in Cambridge, England.

This celebration of the artists who came before is an exhilarating look backward, as well as toward the future. Todd London is in his fifteenth season as artistic director of the Tony Award– winning New Dramatists, where he has worked closely with more than a hundred of America’s leading playwrights and advocated nationally and internationally for hundreds more.

Theatre Communications Group Chinglish
David Henry Hwang

“Marvelous . . . the conceit is elegantly of a piece, yet Hwang is able to keep turning it in on itself to reveal new ambiguities, absurdities, subversions and paradoxes.”—Chicago Reader “Hwang’s plays collectively chart the evolving definition of what it is to be an ‘American.’ . . . His art has illuminated and anticipated our ongoing national story with a sensibility unlike any other in the American theater.”—Frank Rich Springing from the author’s personal experiences in China over the past five years, Chinglish follows a Midwestern American businessman desperately seeking to score a lucrative contact for his family’s firm as he travels to China only to discover how much he doesn’t understand. Named for the unique and often comical third language that evolves from attempts to translate Chinese signs into English, Chinglish explores the challenges of doing business in a culture whose language—and ways of communicating—are worlds apart from our own. David Henry Hwang’s “best new work since M. Butterfly, this shrewd, timely and razor-sharp comedy” (Chicago Tribune) received its Broadway premiere in fall 2011.

Theatre Communications Group But the Giraffe & Brundibar
Tony Kushner
Illustrated by Maurice Sendak
“Exultant. . . . As the unlikely survival of this opera suggests, the joy and beauty that music and art express can outlast evil even when they cannot defeat it.” —The New York Times “It’s a tale of the outrage and rebellion of even the natural world of dogs, cats and sparrows against things as unnatural as injustice and poverty and the suffering of children. It’s a story of good defeating evil. But its history is haunted by a single instance of evil defeating good.”—Tony Kushner Tony Kushner provides a new English libretto, and Maurice Sendak the design, for this Czech opera—a beautiful children’s story extolling courage in the face of tyranny—that was first performed in a concentration camp. Just before the opera’s 1942 premiere, its composer Hans Krasa was arrested and sent to Theresienstadt, or Terezín, a “model ghetto” that was in reality a death camp. After a copy of the score was smuggled in, Krasa took advantage of the large number of talented instrumentalists there to stage the opera with imprisoned children. Performed fifty-five times at Terezín, Brundibar is published here with Kushner’s short play But the Giraffe, a sensitively drawn historical backdrop. Tony Kushner’s plays include Angels in America, Homebody/Kabul, A Bright Room Called Day, Slavs! and the book and lyrics for Caroline, or Change. Maurice Sendak is the author of over a hundred children’s books, including Where the Wild Things Are.
A children’s opera from the creators of Angels in America and Where the Wild Things Are.

With a nod to his mentor Harold Pinter, Mamet employs his signature verbal jousting in the story of two women: once involved with a Weather Undergroundlike group, a prisoner serving a life sentence desperately tries to make the case for her freedom to a prison governor.

“Wickedly clever. . . . Ruhl’s unique, breezily elegant dialogue is fully present, as is her pleasingly loopy logic.”—Variety “In the smart, rollicking Stage Kiss . . . passion and fidelity engage in a kind of elegant pas de deux . . . The play manages to be both wholly original and instantly recognizable . . . with its combination of hilarity and trenchancy.” —John Lahr, The New Yorker Award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl brings her unique mix of lyricism, sparkling humor, and fierce intelligence to her new romantic comedy, Stage Kiss. When estranged lovers He and She are thrown together as romantic leads in a long-forgotten 1930s melodrama, the line between off-stage and on-stage begins to blur. A “knockabout farce that channels Noël Coward and Michael Frayn” (Chicago Tribune), Stage Kiss is a thoughtful and clever examination of the difference between youthful lust and respectful love. Ruhl, one of America’s most frequently produced playwrights, proves that a kiss is not just a kiss in this whirlwind romantic comedy. Sarah Ruhl’s other plays include the Pulitzer Prize finalists In the Next Room (or the vibrator play) and The Clean House, as well as Passion Play, Dean Man’s Cell Phone, Demeter in the City, Eurydice, Melancholy Play, and Late: a cowboy song.

I don’t have answers.

Theatre Communications Group The Veil
Conor McPherson

“McPherson is quite possibly the finest playwright of his generation.” —The New York Times “A theatrical spellbinder with a natural gift for storytelling . . . there is no mistaking the unsentimental passion that makes McPherson such a redemptive writer.”—Daily Telegraph One of Ireland’s leading playwrights, Conor McPherson sets his latest play around a house hemmed in by a restive, starving populace in rural Ireland. In May 1822, the defrocked Reverend Berkeley arrives at the once-glorious Mount Prospect House to accompany seventeen-year-old Hannah to England, where she is to be married off in order to absolve her mother’s debts. But compelled by the peculiar voices that haunt his enchanting young charge and a fascination with the spirits that pervade the house, Berkeley proposes a séance—to disastrous consequences. Weaving Ireland’s troubled colonial past into a riveting tale about the pursuit of love, the transcendental, and the circular nature of time, McPherson directed the world premiere of his newest work at London’s National Theatre in fall 2011. Conor McPherson was born in Dublin, where he still lives. His plays include Olivier Award–winning The Weir, Tony Award–nominated The Seafarer and Shining City, This Lime Tree Bower, St. Nicholas, Port Authority, and Dublin Carol. He is the recipient of the Evening Standard Award for Outstanding New Playwright and the London Critics Circle Award for the Most Promising Playwright.

The work is bleak and true, his touch that of a master in the making.” —Marsha Norman Multi-talented artist and provocateur Adam Rapp shocks and disturbs, weaving themes of love, suffering, and redemption throughout this alarming yet heartening critical examination of societal change. Spanning one hundred years in one Lower East Side tenement hallway, this series of connected plays— Rose, Paraffin, and Nursing—is a dark and compelling exploration of what binds people together and drives them apart. Packed with searing dialogue and harrowing narratives, The Hallway Trilogy “bristles with humor” and “contains some of Rapp’s most sensitive and mature writing” (The New York Times). Adam Rapp is a novelist, filmmaker, and an OBIE Award–winning playwright and director. His plays include the Pulitzer Prize finalist Red Light Winter, Nocturne, Stone Cold Dead Serious, Finer Noble Gases, Essential Self-Defense, and more. He is the author of many young adult novels such as Punkzilla, The Buffalo Tree, and Under the Dog, and the writer and director of the film Winter Passing starring Zooey Deschanel, Will Ferrell, and Ed Harris.

This new volume collects all of the acclaimed author’s work written before Jerusalem: the Olivier Award–winning Mojo, a sly and vicious black comedy set in 1950s Soho clubland; The Night Heron, a “funny, sad, haunting, and strangely beautiful” play about a group of outcasts gathered in the Cambridgeshire fens (Daily Telegraph); Parlour Song, a hilarious investigation of cunning, paranoia, and treacherous desire; and The Winterling, a menacing comedy thriller about a group of misfits waiting out the winter on a moor in Southern England. Jez Butterworth is the multi-award-winning author of Jerusalem. He won the 1995 Evening Standard Award for most promising playwright and was awarded the E.M. Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2007.

Totem Books Bobby’s Open
Mr Jones and the Golf Shot that Defined a Legend

Steven Reid

The year: 1926. Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club is hosting the world’s oldest and most prestigious golf tournament—the British Open. A stellar field of players from both sides of the Atlantic has assembled hoping to claim victory, including Walter Hagen, Harry Vardon, and a rising young amateur from the United States, Bobby Jones. Already a winner of the US Open and US Amateur Championship, Jones, who would one day go on to found the Masters Tournament at Augusta National, has yet to win a major event on British soil. To do so now would set him on a path of unrivalled achievement and into the history books as the greatest amateur golfer the world has ever known. As the competition boils down to the penultimate hole, Bobby must hold his nerve to pull off a miracle recovery shot that will fire his reputation—and that of the golf course—around the world. Bobby’s Open is the inspirational story of a golfing legend and one of the game’s defining contests. Steven Reid blends social history with sporting biography to portray the most famous sportsman of his time, examining why Jones was so adored and the cruel price he ultimately paid for his genius. Steven Reid is a lifelong member of Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, which he captained in 1996, and is currently chairman of its Heritage Committee. Steven is also Chief Medical Officer of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews and a member of County Sligo Golf Club at Rosses Point, West of Ireland.

Turtle Point Press Mr. Proust’s Library
Anka Muhlstein

As fascinating for the general reader as it is valuable for students and book groups, Mr. Proust’s Library is at once a unique close reading of Marcel Proust’s masterpiece Remembrance of Things Past (In Search of Lost Time) and an elegant exploration of Proust’s many and varied loves—his literary sources. Few writers read as deeply and as extensively as Proust. He avidly consumed novels, poetry, plays, and letters. His favorites included Honoré de Balzac, Thomas Hardy, the Goncourts, John Ruskin, Jean Racine, Victor Hugo, T. S. Eliot, Edgar Allan Poe, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. Anka Muhlstein, a Goncourt-winning biographer, is our charming guide through Mr. Proust’s reading list.

Blue Stranger With Mosaic Background
Wayne Koestenbaum

Fast, obsessive, jumpy, tender, and joyful, the poems in Wayne Koestenbaum’s Blue Stranger With Mosaic Background take his signature themes—stardom, scapegoating, aestheticism, nudism, exaltation—and cut them into serial strips: tidbits that employ techniques of pointillism, mosaic, grid, aphorism, litany, and philosophical investigation. The luminaries in this memory-theater range from Yvonne de Carlo to Hannah Arendt. A trip to Venice and an invocation to an eschatological icecream man are the two longest trysts in a book exquisitely composed of “bits” that betoken a new brutalism in a writer known for svelte cadences and artful dodges.

Dear Prudence


Two Dollar Radio Radio Iris
Anne-Marie Kinney

“Radio Iris brings new shimmer and depth to the word ‘sensory’—Iris’s perceptions are both keen and open, so mysterious and grounded, and the book builds a narrative of mystery and longing with visceral, ringing precision.” —Aimee Bender Iris feels goose bumps rising on her forearms, but hesitates to touch the thermostat. Her synthetic leather pumps are filling with sweat, creating an embarrassing squeak when she walks, but those tiny bumps on her arms are rising up in mute defiance. Her ninety-nine cent eyeliner is melting, a line of chocolate brown stamped now in the creases of both eyelids, but her lips are cold and chapped. Her body cannot agree with itself, and it is two minutes after two o’clock. Radio Iris follows Iris Finch, a twentysomething socially awkward daydreamer and receptionist at Larmax, Inc., a company whose true function she doesn’t understand (though she’s heard her boss refer to himself as “a businessman”). Gradually, her boss’ erratic behavior becomes even more erratic, her coworkers begin disappearing, the phone stops ringing, making her role at Larmax moot, and a mysterious man appears to be living in the office suite next door. Radio Iris is an ambient, eerie dream of a novel, written with remarkable precision and grace that could also serve as an appropriate allegory for our modern recession. Anne-Marie Kinney’s short fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Indiana Review, Black Clock, Keyhole, and Satellite Fiction.
Radio Iris deals with watercooler culture in an artful and existential way, delivering an eerie allegory of our modern recession.

Two Dollar Radio How To Get Into the Twin Palms
Karolina Waclawiak

It was a strange choice to decide to pass as a Russian. But it was a question of proximity and level of allure. Russians were everywhere in Los Angeles, especially in my neighborhood, and held a certain sense of mystery. I had long attempted to inhabit my Polish skin and was happy to finally crawl out of it. I would never tell my mother. She only thought of them as crooks and beneath us. They felt the same about us, we were beneath them. It had always been a question of who was under whom. Anya is a young woman living in a Russian neighborhood in Los Angeles, struggling between retaining her parents’ Polish culture and the Americanness she was submerged in growing up. She decides to blaze a new path, and attempt to assimilate within her adopted community, epitomized by the exclusive club the Twin Palms. It is Anya’s goal to gain entrance to this club. How To Get Into the Twin Palms is hilarious and deeply moving, providing a humorous twist on the typical immigrant tale of belonging. Karolina Waclawiak is an assistant editor at The Believer whose screenplay adaptation of Sam Lipsyte’s Venus Drive is currently in development.

Umbrage Editions A Girl and Her Room
Rania Matar
Introduction by Susan Minot
“[What’s] most striking about Matar’s photography is . . . its balance between the realistic and poetic. She is the documentarian as lyricist, someone who, recording the incongruous, discovers the transcendent.” —Mark Feeney, The Boston Globe Award-winning photographer Rania Matar captures the interior lives of teenage girls and young women in intimate portraits taken within the personal spaces of her subjects’ bedrooms. From Spartan cleanliness to chaotic disarray, stark and paint-chipped to clothing-cluttered and graffitied, each room offers an insider’s peek into the mind of the girl who lives there, her values, her desires, and her fears. Photographing girls from both the United States and Lebanon, Matar has succeeded in an unbiased documentary that questions what it means to grow from girl to woman and how our identities spill over into our material worlds. Rania Matar was born and raised in Lebanon, moving to the United States in 1983. Her projects—which examine Palestinian refugee camps, the recent spread of the veil and its meanings, the aftermath of war, and the Christians of the Middle East—return voice to people forgotten or misunderstood. She has won numerous awards, and her images are in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. Matar’s first book Ordinary Lives was published in 2009. She teaches at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Susan Minot is an award-winning novelist and short-story writer whose books include Monkeys, Folly, Lust & Other Stories, and Evening.
Intimate, unbiased portraits of teenage girls in their bedrooms, investigating notions of identity and the move from child to adult.

Umbrage Editions Room 103
Jeroen Kramer
“While Kramer may only see himself as perpetuating a cycle of exploitation, this book represents his obligation to reverse the trend, to make sure that the people with whom he is interacting and whose stories he is telling do not become just another number.”—Lauren Heinz, Foto8 In Room 103, photojournalist Jeroen Kramer juxtaposes his insider’s view of Middle Eastern everyday life with the intense violence that permeates that life. Images rarely depicted in photographs from the Arab world—of male intimacy nuanced with homoerotic undertones, domestic interiors, family gatherings, eerily ordinary street scenes—appear beside visceral images of the aftermaths of shootings and bombings. Kramer’s accompanying personal essays probe the meanings not only of his place in the Middle East, but also of the exploitative nature of photojournalism. No other book has so lyrically, succinctly, and honestly questioned the role of the photojournalist. Exposing the personal demons born from his life and work, Kramer proves that it is his recognition of these demons that brings his photography so close to the truth. Jeroen Kramer is a Dutch-born photojournalist who has covered subjects in the Middle East, Africa, Burma, and the Philippines. His work has been published worldwide, including in The New York Times and Vanity Fair, and his images have been featured in exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States.

Wave Books Snowflake / different streets
Eileen Myles
“One of the savviest and most restless intellects in contemporary literature— honest, jokey, paranoid, sentimental, mean, lyrical, tough, you name it.” —Dennis Cooper “[Myles’ writing] comes across simultaneously as effortless and utterly gorgeous. . . . To be able to write with such gentleness and force all at the same time is such a gift, and Myles is completely generous in how she uses this.” —Ron Silliman Two books meet as one in legendary poet, critic, and novelist Eileen Myles’ newest collection. In a world overflowing with technology and its mutant offspring, moments of human ecstasy and connection are as indelible as they are fleeting. Indeed, with every page, the poems of Snowflake and different streets create poet and poem anew. some cars seem to erupt from the tar itself they seem to pull themselves up from below the surface of the land though I don’t think land. I mean something flat, something black almost like a water that we’re on though a dark water that holds us. Eileen Myles has published more than a dozen books of poetry, criticism, and fiction. She was recently awarded the 2010 Shelley Memorial Award for poetry and the Lambda Literary Award for lesbian fiction. She lives in New York.
New poems that hurtle through time and space from an irrefutable force in American poetry.

Mary Ruefle

“Ruefle is clearly one of the best American poets writing, and her body of work is remarkable for its spiritual force, intelligence, stylistic virtuosity, and adventurousness.”—Tony Hoagland “For more than thirty years, she has freshened American poetry by humbly glorifying both the inner life and the outward experience.”—William Carlos Williams Award citation Over the course of fifteen years, Mary Ruefle delivered a lecture every six months to a group of poetry graduate students. Collected here for the first time, these lectures include “Poetry and the Moon,” “Someone Reading A Book Is A Sign Of Order In The World,” and “Lectures I Will Never Give.” Intellectually virtuosic, instructive, and experiential, Madness, Rack, and Honey resists definition, demanding instead an utter—and utterly pleasurable—immersion.

Wave Books A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon
New (Soma)tics


“He’s a poet for our time like Ginsberg was for his.”—Eileen Myles “Conrad’s work shows us that the body itself is the first source of alienation and estrangement from the self, and is thus the true subject of poetry. Only by engaging this body . . . can we achieve transport.”—Bookforum What is the best Love you’ve ever had in this world? Be quiet while thinking about that Love. If someone comes along and starts talking, quietly shoo them away, you’re busy, you’re a poet with a penny in your mouth. . . . Now get your pen and paper and write about POVERTY, write line after line about starvation and deprivation from the voice of one who has been Loved in this world. CAConrad’s (Soma)tic exercises desire to literally crack open existence as we know it. A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon is an essential how-to book for anyone interested in breaking through their perceived limitations to become a more politically and physically engaged writer. Incorporating unorthodox steps in the writing process, these twenty-seven exercises and their corresponding poems confirm Conrad’s unwavering belief in poetry as a necessary practice for being. CAConrad, a 2011 PEW Fellow in the Arts, is the author of five books of poetry, including The Book of Frank (Wave Books, 2010/Chax Press, 2009). He lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“This mechanistic world . . . has required me to FIND MY BODY to FIND MY PLANET in order to find my poetry.”—CAConrad Marketing Plans

“This is a gem of a collection of Olga Orozco stories, beautifully rendered into English. This wise selection of stories reveals Orozco’s lyrical, as well as mysterious, prose.

This collection includes work selected from six previously published volumes and two unpublished sequences of new work. Gary Young lives in Santa Cruz, California.

Windhorse Publications Sailing the Worldly Winds
A Buddhist Way Through the Ups and Downs of Life


This book focuses on the Buddha’s teaching of the worldly winds, how we can learn to navigate them more effectively, so that we can sail safely through life rather than being blown off course, however stormy the weather. How do we really get on in this world? Tossed around by gain, buffeted by loss, borne aloft by praise, cast down by blame, how can we not be ground under, lose all direction, confidence, and sense of purpose? The Buddha had clear guidance on how to rise above these “worldly winds,” and Vajragupta here opens up for us the Buddha’s compassionate yet uncompromising teaching. Using reflections, exercises, and suggestions for daily practice, this book can help you find greater equanimity and perspective in the ups and downs— big and small—of everyday life. Sailing the Worldly Winds was written in conjunction with the Triratna Buddhist Order 2011 International Urban Retreat. Vajragupta has been a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order since 1994, and is director of the Triratna Development Team. He lives in Worcester, England, where he teaches Buddhism and meditation.
This book will guide you in the right direction when navigating the ups and downs of everyday life.

Windhorse Publications Buddhist Meditation
Tranquillity, Imagination and Insight Third Edition

First published in 1991, this book has become established as a comprehensive guide to the theory and methods of Buddhist meditation, providing a com­ plete introduction for beginners as well as detailed advice for experienced meditators seeking to deepen their practice. With this third edition Kamalashila has included new sections on the im­ portance of the imagination, on Just Sitting, and on refection on the Buddha. There is also new material on sadhana—including less formal, more experi­ mental ways to connect with the living reality of the awakened mind—on mindfulness, and on the balance required between active and receptive ap­ proaches in meditation. Writing in an informal, accessible style, Kamalashila draws particular inspira­ tion from the great Theravadin commentator Buddhaghosa, from Zhiyi—the preeminent master of the Chinese Tien­t’ai School—and above all from the Buddha. The result is a practical handbook, complete with trouble­shooting guides to the places your practice might take you. It is also an exploration of the ultimate aim of Buddhist meditation: heightened awareness, true happi­ ness, and—ultimately—liberating insight into the nature of reality. Kamalashila has been teaching meditation since 1976. He has developed ap­ proaches to meditation practice that are accessible to people in the contempo­ rary world while being firmly grounded in the Buddhist tradition.
This contemporary guide to meditation is perfect for beginners and those wanting to advance their meditation practice.

Zephyr Press The Colonies
Tomasz Róz ycki ˙
Translated by Mira Rosenthal
“A vital new poet in the Polish language.”—Adam Zagajewski Tomasz Rózycki’s sixth book seems like nothing if not an attempt to grapple ˙ with Elizabeth Bishop’s question, “Should we have stayed at home and thought of here?” But for Rózycki questions of travel and foreignness are never sepa˙ rate from those of history—personal history, political and national history, the history of things and places and trauma. “Coffee and Cigarettes” When I began to write, I didn’t know that poems would transform me, make my skin translucent, I’d become a weary ghost who, sleepless, roams the streets as if to ride a high till coming down, then go to bed with rabid dawn. But light would find me still out wandering and dropping in on friends, flat broke, a louse, a varmint, summoned by your nakedness or even just your sighing. And honey, how was I to know what all these dumb poems would make of me, that you would summon me to life, and thanks to you I would become the visible, in bed beside you, waiting till you fall asleep. Tomasz Róz ycki has published six books of poetry, including The Forgotten Keys, ˙ winner of the Koscielski Prize. He has been nominated twice for the Nike Prize, Poland’s most important literary award. He lives in his hometown, Opole, with his wife and two children. Mira Rosenthal has received NEA and Fulbright grants and held fellowships at the MacDowell Colony and the Vermont Studio Center. Her poetry has appeared in journals such as Ploughshares, The American Poetry Review, and Slate.
An exploration of collective memory in fiercely exacting poems.

Few of Andrei Sen-Senkov’s patients and colleagues know of his status as one of Russia’s better-known contemporary poets, but he doesn’t lose much sleep over this. Indeed, in person Sen-Senkov exhibits none of the pathos of the Inspired Lyricist. He is just as likely to complain about the weather, bemoan the latest political or natural disaster, or exclaim breathlessly over a newly discovered jazz musician as he is to discuss poetry. And when you read his poems, it all makes sense: for Sen-Senkov, anything can be poetry, everything is poetry. Born in 1968 in Dushanbe (now capital of Tajikistan), Sen-Senkov moved to central Russia following the break-up of the Soviet Union. He moved to Moscow in the beginning of the 2000s and joined the city’s lively literary scene, although he works primarily as a gynecologist. His involvement in literary life has been as eclectic and wide-ranging as his choice of subjects: a tireless advocate of artistic innovation, Sen-Senkov participates in events devoted to visual poetry, sound poetry, video poetry, and other multidisciplinary endeavors, as well as traditional poetry readings. Sen-Senkov’s poetry comes across easily and well in translation. Some of his imaginative leaps are more obscure than others, but this only increases the pleasure gained from following them. As a poet he is anti-hermetic—he writes to be understood, and he is generous in sharing his observations. Translators and English-language readers alike can delight in the fact that the intuitive logic of his imagination essentially transcends linguistic boundaries.
The newest wave of Russian poetry, set to transcend linguistic borders.

Zephyr Press Motherless Child
Marianne Langner Zeitlin

In her third novel Motherless Child, Marianne Langner Zeitlin explores the world of classical music, where powerful managers can make—and break—the careers of aspiring artists. The book opens with Elizabeth Guaragna, under an assumed name, taking a job in the new agency of famed music impresario Alfred Rossiter, a man she was raised to despise. She wants to glimpse the man who had destroyed her father’s piano career and family life years earlier, when he took Elizabeth’s mother as his lover. As Elizabeth is given opportunities to exercise her artistic judgment in her new job, she becomes involved in the business itself, despite her continuing misgivings. Soon she meets George Wentworth, who is writing a biography of Rossiter. Through him and the relationship they develop, she learns that the truth she is seeking is quite different from what she was raised to believe. When her fear of identifying her real background to Rossiter threatens her own love of George, she must finally confront Rossiter and her own past, learning that there are no villains in the tale. Marianne Langner Zeitlin has spent her adult life in the world of music—as the wife of acclaimed violinist Zvi Zeitlin, as one of the first women to manage an orchestra herself, and, in her young adulthood, as an employee at one of the largest music management firms in the United States. She brings her wealth of knowledge about the field to this engaging and suspenseful story.

A story of love, hate, and music set in the offices of a famous music manager.
