what haunts him

that moment after the bartender refused to serve the dark marine and the three white skinned others just sat there that moment before they rose and followed their nappy brother out into the USA they were willing to die to defend then

AK Press Disassembly Required
A Field Guide to Actually Existing Capitalism

Geoff Mann

“Geoff Mann is a new breed of monkey-wrencher. He knows that contemporary capitalism has a perverse habit of dismantling itself and gives us a toolkit to build a new, more socially just edifice.”—Andy Merrifield, Magical Marxism “Insightful and incisive, thoughtful and thorough, filled with new avenues for thinking about resistance. Pass this one by at your own peril.”—Matt Hern, Common Ground in a Liquid City To imagine how we might change capitalism, we first need to understand it. To succeed in actually changing it, we need to be able to explain how it works and convince others that change is both possible and necessary. Disassembly Required is an attempt to meet those challenges, and to offer clear, accessible alternatives to the status quo of everyday capitalism. Originally crafted as a comprehensive overview for younger readers, Geoff Mann’s explanation of the fundamental features of contemporary capitalism is illustrated with real-world examples—an ideal introduction for anyone wanting to learn more about what capitalism is and where it falls short. What emerges is an anti-capitalist critique that fully understands the complex, dynamic, robust organizational machine of modern economic life, digging deep into the details of capitalist institutions and the relations that justify them to unearth the politically indefensible and ecologically unsustainable premises that underlie them. Geoff Mann teaches political economy and economic geography at Simon Fraser University, where he directs the Centre for Global Political Economy. He is the author of Our Daily Bread: Wages, Workers and the Political Economy of the American West (2007) and a frequent contributor to Historical Materialism and New Left Review.
From money and markets to the subprime crisis, this anti-capitalist pocket guide explains capitalism and its crises and suggests alternatives.

AK Press The Green Fuse
Inside the Radical Environmental Movement

Jeffrey St. Clair and Joshua Frank
“The corporate-led attacks on the environmental movement—and the movement’s response—are a teachable moment for all social movements. The Green Fuse is an important contribution to this dialogue of repression of resistance.” —Will Potter, Green is the New Red On October 19, 1998, five buildings and four chairlifts in Vail, Colorado, burned. In a communiqué from the Earth Liberation Front, activists claimed the fires were aimed at protecting the alpine habitat of endangered lynx from a planned expansion of a ski resort into the Two Elks Roadless Area. This dramatic act of political arson was rapidly followed by a wave of arson and sabotage, targeting research labs, logging companies, and industrial corporations by a shadowy network of environmental militants. These actions made for sensational headlines, prompted a covert FBI operation, and were used to justify repressive new laws at the state and federal level. The Green Fuse profiles the leading figures of this new movement: Tre Arrow, Mike Roselle, Rod Coronado, Marie Mason, Tim DeChristopher, and Jonathan Paul. The Green Fuse shows how activists were threatened, spied upon, infiltrated and ultimately arrested, tried under draconian new laws, and sentenced to harsh prison terms in a riveting, up-close narrative.

AK Press We Are Many
Reflections on Movement Strategy, from Occupation to Liberation

Edited by Kate Khatib, Margaret Killjoy, and Mike McGuire
“A wonderful collection of questions and reflections on the state of the movement today, where we came from, and where we might be going. It is all too rare that in the process of creating the movement and living the moment, participants and thinkers step back and ask the most pressing questions. This book is an important step.”—Marina Sitrin, Occupy Wall Street organizer and author of Horizontalism We have all been swept up by the momentum of the Occupy movement. We have seen the results of years of organizing in different communities come together in ways that few could have imagined, bolstered by the scores of people who have left the comfort of their daily routine behind and taken to the streets. Yet as a movement so overflowing with new social and political actors, we lack the framework we need to help us all to understand what a social movement is, to understand how change has happened in the past, to understand what this moment means and what this movement makes possible. We Are Many is a reflection on Occupy from within the heart of the movement itself. Examining key questions—what worked? what didn’t? why? how? is it reproducible?—the authors and activists in this collection point toward a movement-based framework for future organizing. Heavily illustrated and annotated, We Are Many is a celebration of what worked, and a thoughtful analysis of what didn’t. Contributors include David Graeber, Yotam Marom, Tom Morello, Frances Fox Piven, Gan Golan, Cindy Milstein, Kristian Williams, Lisa Fithian, Lester Spence, Marisa Holmes, Max Rameau, Vijay Prashad, Josh MacPhee, Molly Crabapple, Micah Uetricht, CrimethInc., Team Colors, Bring the Ruckus, Picture the Homeless, and more.

AK Press Queering Anarchism
Essays on Gender, Power, and Desire

Edited by C. B. Daring, J. Rogue, Deric Shannon, and Abbey Volcano
Foreword by Martha Ackelsberg
“A much-needed collection that thinks through power, desire, and human liberation. These pieces are sure to raise the level of debate about sexuality, gender, and the ways that they tie in with struggles against our ruling institutions.”—Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Outlaw Woman “Against the austerity of straight politics, Queering Anarchism sketches the connections between gender mutiny, queer sexualities, and anti-authoritarian desires. Through embodied histories and incendiary critique, the contributors gathered here show how we must not stop at smashing the state; rather normativity itself is the enemy of all radical possibility.”—Eric A. Stanley, co-editor of Captive Genders What does it mean to “queer” the world around us? How does the radical refusal of the mainstream codification of GLBT identity as a new gender norm come into focus in the context of anarchist theory and practice? How do our notions of orientation inform our politics—and vice versa? Queering Anarchism brings together a diverse set of writings ranging from the deeply theoretical to the playfully personal that explore the possibilities of the concept of “queering,” turning the dominant, and largely heteronormative, structures of belief and identity entirely inside out. Ranging in topic from the economy to disability, politics, social structures, sexual practice, interpersonal relationships, and beyond, the authors here suggest that queering might be more than a set of personal preferences—pointing toward the possibility of an entirely new way of viewing the world. Contributors include Jamie Heckert, Sandra Jeppesen, Ben Shepard, Ryan Conrad, Jerimarie Liesegang, Jason Lydon, Susan Song, Stephanie Grohmann, Liat Ben-Moshe, Anthony J. Nocella, A.J. Withers, and more.
A wrench in the gears of sexual politics—twenty authors challenge the social constructs of identity, ideology, and beyond.

AK Press Nine-tenths of the Law
Property and Resistance in the United States

Hannah Dobbz

“From the Native American Seizure of Alcatraz Island, to New York Squatters and Homesteaders of the 1980s, to the housing actions led by Occupy Wall Street today [Dobbz] asks important philosophical questions about these tendencies. [Her] book is a welcome addition.”—Seth Tobocman, co-author, Understanding the Crash How does “property” fit into designs for an equitable society? Nine-tenths of the Law examines the history of squatting and property struggles in the United States, from colonialism to twentieth century urban squatting and the foreclosure crisis of the late 2000s, and how such resistance movements shape the law. Stories from our most hard-hit American cities show that property is truly in crisis: • One in five homes in Buffalo, NY, are abandoned. • Our national housing vacancy rate is 14 percent. If we gave a house to every homeless person in the United States two-thirds of that stock would remain empty. • In May of 2011, one in every 103 homes in Nevada was in foreclosure. Nine-tenths of the Law expands our understanding of property law and highlights recent tactics like creative squatting ventures and the use of adverse possession to claim titles to vacant homes. Hannah Dobbz unveils the tangled relationship Americans have always had in creating and sustaining healthy communities. Hannah Dobbz is a writer, editor, filmmaker, and former squatter. In 2007 she produced a film about squatters in the Bay Area called Shelter. The film has screened widely at universities, bookstores, and community spaces, including the 2009 Three Rivers Film Festival in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Akashic Books When Johnny Came Marching Home
William Heffernan

“Sliding back and forth in time—before, during, and after the Civil War— William Heffernan creates a powerful, intriguing, and complex novel about the intricacies of friendship and the devastating effects of war.” —Jonathan Santlofer, author of The Death Artist “When Johnny Came Marching Home evokes a young soldier’s reluctant relationship to violence and brutality with a chilling realism that brings the reader face-to-face with the moral complexities of even the most noble of wars. Following in the literary tradition of Ernest Hemingway, James Jones, and Larry Heinemann, William Heffernan is able to somehow find grace and beauty amidst the horror of battle.”—Kaylie Jones, author of A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries “When Johnny Came Marching Home is a carefully constructed and evocative Civil War–era tale that will hold you from first to last page. The author has a rare gift for transporting the reader in time and place. Put this one at the top of your list. No one does this kind of novel better than Heffernan.” —John Lutz, author of Serial When Johnny Came Marching Home is a mystery, a love story, and William Heffernan’s best book to date. The novel tells the story of three boys who grow up in rural Vermont in a seemingly indestructible friendship, then see their lives ruined as they go off to fight in America’s “great and noble war.” Trapped in a what appears to be an endless bloodbath—vividly presented with Heffernan’s meticulous historical research—the boys gradually begin to change until their close-knit childhood ties are little more than a fractured memory. By war’s end, one boy is dead, one returns a physically crippled and emotionally compromised man, and the third comes home as an unfeeling psychopath. The novel turns on the subsequent murder of the psychopath, and the offer of redemption for the wounded young man who must investigate the crime. When Johnny Came Marching Home is a story about war and how it affects the lives of all who become a part of it, both directly and peripherally. Although set during the Civil War, this book casts shadows of what we endure today and the horrors to which young soldiers are subjected. William Heffernan, a three-time Pulitzer Prize nominee, is the author of fifteen novels, including such bestsellers as The Corsican, The Dinosaur Club (a New York Times bestseller), The Dead Detective, and Tarnished Blue (winner of an Edgar Award). Heffernan lives outside of St. Petersburg, Florida.
A one-armed young Civil War veteran investigates the death of a troubled fellow soldier in 1860s Vermont and Virginia.

Akashic Books The Secret History of Coffee, Coca & Cola
Ricardo Cortés
The Secret History of Coffee, Coca & Cola is an illustrated book disclosing new research in the coca leaf trade conducted by the Coca-Cola Company. 2011 marked the 125th anniversary of its iconic beverage, and the 50th anniversary of the international drug control treaty that allows Coca-Cola exclusive access to the coca plant. Most people are familiar with tales of cocaine being an early ingredient of “Coke” tonic; it’s an era the company makes every effort to bury. Yet coca leaf, the source of cocaine, banned in the United States since 1914, has been part of Coca-Cola’s secret formula for over one hundred years. This is a history that spans from cocaine factories in Peru, to secret experiments at the University of Hawaii, to the personal files of US Bureau of Narcotics Commissioner Harry Anslinger (infamous for his “Reefer Madness” campaign against marijuana, lesser known as a long-time collaborator of the Coca-Cola Company). The Secret History of Coffee, Coca & Cola tells how one of the biggest companies in the world bypasses an international ban on coca. The book also explores histories of three of the most consumed substances on earth, revealing connections between seemingly disparate icons of modern culture: caffeine, cocaine, and Coca-Cola. Ricardo Cortés is best known for illustrating the number one New York Times best-selling Go the Fuck to Sleep and the G-rated follow-up Seriously, Just Go to Sleep. Cortés first gained notoriety after his debut It’s Just a Plant: A Children’s Book about Marijuana sparked controversy from The O’Reilly Factor to Capitol Hill. He has illustrated books about electricity, the Jamaican bobsled team, and jury nullification; his work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, New York Post, The Village Voice, San Francisco Chronicle, and on CNN and FOX News. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
The co-creator of Go the Fuck to Sleep presents an illustrated history of the intermingling of coffee, Coca-Cola, and cocaine.

Akashic Books American Honor Killings
Desire and Rage Among Men

David McConnell

In American Honor Killings, straight and gay guys cross paths, and the result is murder. But what really happened? What role did hatred play? What were the men involved really like, and what was going on between them when the murder occurred? American Honor Killings explores the truth behind squeamish reporting and uninformed political rants of the far right or fringe left. David McConnell, a New York–based novelist, researched cases from small-town Alabama to San Quentin’s death row. The book recounts some of the most notorious crimes of our era. Beginning in 1999 and lasting until the 2011 conviction of a youth in Queens, New York, the book shows how some murderers think they’re cleaning up society. Surprisingly, other killings feel almost preordained, not a matter of the victim’s personality or actions so much as a twisted display of a young man’s will to compete or dominate. We want to think these stories involve simple sexual conflict, either the killer’s internal struggle over his own identity or a fatally miscalculated proposition. They’re almost never that simple. Together, the cases form a secret American history of rage and desire. McConnell cuts through cant and political special pleading to turn these cases into enduring literature. In each story victims, murderers, friends, and relatives come breathtakingly alive. The result is more soulful, more sensitive, more artful than the sort of “true crime” writing the book was modeled on. A wealth of new detail has been woven into old cases, while new cases are plumbed for the first time. The resulting stories play out exactly as they happened, an inexorable sequence of events—grisly, touching, disturbing, sometimes even with moments of levity. David McConnell is the author of the acclaimed novel The Silver Hearted. His short fiction and journalism have appeared widely in magazines and anthologies.
An exposé of an America no one is comfortable talking about: the volatile ground where male violence and sexuality overlap.

Akashic Books Cervantes Street
Jaime Manrique

“A sprawling vivacious big-hearted novel. Manrique is fantastically talented and this is perhaps his masterpiece.”—Junot Díaz “Cervantes like we’ve never known him: the rogue, the lover, the soldier, the slave, and above all, the poet. In this novel, Jaime Manrique reminds us that the great writer was a man of flesh and blood whose eventful life seemed destined for great literature.”—Esmeralda Santiago “Jaime Manrique has written an exceptional historical novel, recreating with imagination and detailed accuracy the world of Late Renaissance in Spain. Manrique’s rendering of the life of Cervantes is brilliant, and his solution to the mystery of who wrote the false Quixote is fascinating, and very persuasive.” —Edith Grossman The actual facts of Miguel de Cervantes’ life seem to be snatched from an epic tale: an impoverished and talented young poet nearly kills a man in a duel and is forced into exile; later, he distinguishes himself in battle and is severely wounded, losing the use of his left hand; on his way back to Spain his ship is captured by pirates and he is sold into slavery in Algiers; after prolonged imprisonment and failed escape attempts, he makes his way back home, eventually settling in a remote village in La Mancha to create his masterpiece, the first modern novel in Western literature: Don Quixote. Taking the bare bones of Cervantes’ life, Jaime Manrique has accomplished a singular feat: an engaging and highly accessible take on a brilliant, enigmatic man and his epoch. This is an archetypal tale of rivalry and revenge— featuring Cervantes’ antagonistic relationship with the man who would go on to write his own sequel to Don Quixote—that is sure to garner comparisons to Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, Alexandre Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo, and, with its extraordinary recreation of the life and times of Cervantes, to Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall. Jaime Manrique is a novelist, essayist, and poet who lives in New York. His critically acclaimed novels include Columbian Gold, Latin Moon in Manhattan, and Our Lives Are the Rivers.

Akashic Books God Carlos
Anthony C. Winkler

“Every country (if she’s lucky) gets the Mark Twain she deserves, and Winkler is ours.”—Marlon James, author of The Book of Night Women God Carlos transports us aboard an early sixteenth-century sailing vessel bound for the lately discovered West Indies with a band of ragtag sailors looking for gold in Jamaica. But the European newcomers find no gold, only the merciless climate that nourishes diseases that slaughter them and the native Arawaks whose culture, customs, and beliefs are anathema to the arriving Spaniards. Anthony C. Winkler was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1942. His comic novels include The Duppy and The Lunatic, which was turned into a feature film.

Inspired by the ongoing international success of the city-based Akashic Noir series (Brooklyn Noir, Boston Noir, Paris Noir, etc.), last year Akashic created the new Drug Chronicles series. On the heels of The Speed Chronicles (Sherman Alexie, William T. Vollmann, Megan Abbott, James Franco, Beth Lisick, etc.) and The Cocaine Chronicles (Lee Child, Laura Lippman, etc.) comes The Heroin Chronicles, a volume sure to frighten and delight. The literary styles are varied, as are the moral quandaries herein. Heroin has long been understood as the most “literary” of narcotics, and this collection will, for better and worse, have tremendous pop cultural appeal. Featuring brand-new stories by: Eric Bogosian, Lydia Lunch, Jerry Stahl, Nathan Larson, Ava Stander, Antonia Crane, Gary Phillips, Jervey Tervalon, John Albert, Michael Albo, Sophia Langdon, Tony O’Neill, and L.Z. Hansen. Jerry Stahl is the author of six books, including the memoir Permanent Midnight (made into a movie with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson) and the novels I, Fatty and Pain Killers. Formerly the culture columnist for Details, Stahl’s fiction and journalism have appeared in Esquire, The New York Times, and The Believer, among other places. He has worked extensively in film and television and, most recently, wrote Hemingway & Gellhorn, starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman, for HBO.

Poems of Marina Tsvetaeva

Marina Tsvetaeva
As told by Ilya Kaminsky and Jean Valentine
“A poet of genius.”—Vladimir Nabokov Via what Ilya Kaminsky and Jean Valentine call “readings”—not translations— of fragments of Marina Tsvetaeva’s poems and prose, Tsvetaeva’s lyrical genius is made accessible and poignant to a new generation of readers. By juxtaposing fragments of her poems with short pieces of prose, we begin to know her as poet, friend, enemy, woman, lover, and revolutionary. From “Poems for Moscow (2)”: From my hands—take this city not made by hands, my strange, my beautiful brother. Take it, church by church—all forty times forty churches, and flying up over them, the small pigeons; And Spassky Gates—in their flower— where the Orthodox take off their hats; And the Chapel of Stars—refuge chapel— where the floor is—polished by tears; Take the circle of the five cathedrals, my soul, my holy friend. Marina Tsvetaeva was born in Moscow in 1892 and died in 1941. Her poetry stands among the greatest works of twentieth century Russian writers. Ilya Kaminsky is the author of Dancing in Odessa (Tupelo Press, 2004) which won the Whiting Writers’ Award, the American Academy of Arts and Letters’ Metcalf Award, the Dorset Prize, and the Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship awarded annually by Poetry magazine. Jean Valentine won the Yale Younger Poets award for Dream Barker in 1965. Her eleventh book of poetry is Break the Glass, from Copper Canyon Press. Door in the Mountain: New and Collected Poems 1965–2003 was the winner of the 2004 National Book Award for Poetry.
Two of America’s most passionate poets work magic to unearth the true voice of Marina Tsvetaeva, to “open [her] veins.”

Alice James Books Tantivy
Donald Revell

“Every word counts in Donald Revell. You must read him carefully—not because he’s difficult but because he’s profound. But that’s too inappropriate, that word; let me say sun-worthy, Sophoclean, God-drenched. Let me say grave, trustworthy, loving, faithful, shocking, brilliant, honest. Let me say for dear life. One of America’s best poets.”—Gerald Stern Through close attention to nature’s myriad syntheses and separations, Donald Revell’s sage lyric meditations seek and find proof of the otherworldly. These poems are ripe with the ecstatic vision we come to expect from Revell’s work. “Victorians” There is snow and there is snow. A young woman, daughter of the eminent physician, Disrobes at her window, and starvation, Like a pack of dogs with jeweled mouths, Pauses a moment, howls, and the young woman Recites a poem to herself. So long ago the words are lost Even as each remains a part of us. Christmas meaning snow out of a broiling sun. Humanity meaning numbers. Childhood meaning children and railings and kisses Never kissed but carved into real trees. Motherless goddamn modernity never grew. Here we are again at Christmas On fire escapes without a fire in view. Poet, translator, and critic Donald Revell has authored ten previous collections of poetry. Winner of the 2008 NEA Translation Award, the 2004 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize, and two-time winner of the PEN Center USA Award in Poetry, Revell has received fellowships from the NEA, Ingram Merrill, and Guggenheim memorial foundations. He is poetry editor of Colorado Review.
In his eleventh collection, Donald Revell confidently furthers Henry David Thoreau’s visionary impulse to reveal the world as it—so magically—is.

Alice James Books Black Crow Dress
Roxane Beth Johnson

“These poems move forward like a novel in verse with a real understanding of the differences between the past and history. Or, as Johnson herself says in the opening poem, ‘Each one is hungry for a voice & music to re-bloom.’ This is a poet the best readers will be reading for the rest of their lives.”—Jericho Brown A haunting collection of lyrically intense persona poems, Black Crow Dress is at once about the emancipation of slaves in their myriad voices as well as a meditation on the self. The collection’s lush imagery takes us from churchyard to church, chanting the old spirituals, as Roxane Beth Johnson seeks to embody the spirits of the dead: Clea, Caroline, and Zebedee. From “Slave Ancestors Found Unburied in a Dream”: Each one is hungry for a voice & music to re-bloom them alive in this room like water softens beans. Leaning near, close to me they see my tooth & tongue that test doneness, licks stamps & hums. Their ear listens to what a hand might fiddle if it had fingers. Stare this way with eyes like smudges . . . Roxane Beth Johnson’s first book of poetry, Jublilee (Anhinga Press, 2006), won the 2005 Philip Levine Prize for Poetry. She won an AWP Donald Hill Prize in Poetry and a Pushcart Prize in 2007 and has received scholarships and fellowships from The MacDowell Colony, Cave Canem, The Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, San Francisco Arts Commission, and Vermont Studio Center. She lives in San Francisco, California.
Ghosts of American slaves have much to teach us. Roxane Beth Johnson, in her second collection, summons all ghosts, even our own.

Nina Bogin

“Nina Bogin’s poems are impeccable in craft, elegant in their economy, and emotionally profound. . . . There is no better poet of her generation, and few as good.”—Denise Levertov Nina Bogin’s spare, subtle third collection maps personal territory—places of memory and love, of language and geography. She explores the traces history leaves and how her language connects with that of her ancestors. Inside the words I use are words I’ve forgotten, buried dialects, whole alphabets left on the far side of rivers. Nina Bogin was born in New York City in 1952 and has lived in France since 1976.

Angels and Harvesters
James Harpur
“His poetry, always strongly imbued with a sense of the sacred, makes great play of light’s spiritual resonance.”—Sarah Crown, The Guardian James Harpur’s fifth collection journeys from the landscapes of Ireland to the visionary realms of the mystics. His poems display an otherworldly wonder while keeping a sharply observant eye on the everyday world. From “Angels and Harvesters”: As thoughts arrive From god knows where, Or sun breaks through A fraying cloud Emboldening a patch Of trees, or grass, They just appeared From nowhere Among the harvesters . . .

Anvil Press Swift
Jennie Feldman

In Jennie Feldman’s second collection, the earth-shy bird of the title flies high above the territorial rivalries of its region, the Middle East. Swift focuses on what compels and coheres, with an instinct for encounter: a Greek beekeeper, a cello maestro, a Latin poet in an East Jerusalem café. Buoyed by water and the power of music, these poems pursue an elusive equilibrium. How the mind accompanies the body’s faltering, hallucination where reverie should be . . .

To These Dark Steps
Gabriel Levin

Gabriel Levin’s fourth collection was written in Jerusalem in the shadow of Israel’s bombardment and incursion into Gaza in 2008. The title sequence and its prose commentary (“The Fathers are Watching”) navigate between war and the mind’s need to escape its depredations. The final section of this articulate and compassionate book is a fifteen-sonnet cycle dispatched from an unnamed island, which could be everyman’s abode. Little dustbowl brightly lit for Ramadan with your peppermint minaret tops and cannon-fire, greetings from an aging utopist, an orientalist manqué . . . Gabriel Levin grew up in the United States and has lived in Jerusalem since 1972.

Archipelago Books The Eleven
Pierre Michon
Translated by Elizabeth Deshays and Jody Gladding

Winner of the French Academy’s Grand Prix du Roman. “Michon’s prose tends to slow down in order to oblige you to hear its rhythms and also to see and touch and smell what is happening beneath it.” —Harper’s Magazine He was not tall, unobtrusive, but he held your attention by his feverish silence, his dark cheer, his alternately arrogant and oblique manner—grim, you would call it. At least that was true seeing him later in life. None of that appears on the Würzburg ceilings in the portrait Tiepolo left of him, when the model was twenty years old: he is there, so they say, and you can go see him there, perched among a hundred princes, a hundred constables, and ushers . . . Corentin, a young man of humble origins, rises up in Parisian society, becoming a famous painter who is called upon to decorate the homes of Louis XIV’s mistresses. Yet his masterpiece is “The Eleven,” a revolutionary representation of the eleven members of the Committee of Public Safety during the Reign of Terror. Pierre Michon, born in Cards, France, in 1945, is one of France’s foremost contemporary writers. He has been awarded the Prix Décembre, the Grand Prix du Roman (for The Eleven), and the Prix de la Ville de Paris for his body of work. Elizabeth Deshays is a teacher and a translator. She is the author of a study on bilingual education, L’Enfant Bilingue. She lives in Provence, France. Jody Gladding is a poet and translator of over twenty books from the French. Her most recent collection of poetry is Rooms and Their Airs (Milkweed Editions). She teaches in the MFA program at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Diary of Exile
Yannis Ritsos
Translated by Karen Emmerich and Edmund Keeley
“Without Ritsos’ eloquence, Greeks would have forgotten how to name all those things that are there before their eyes.”—Pantelis Prevelakis This long poem is a nuanced and moving account of the poet’s time in exile, in which everyday events hide much that is threatening, oppressive, and spiritually vacuous. Lyrical and idyllic, these re-creations of Greek mythology justify Yannis Ritsos’ reputation as one of the most honored in modern Greece. Plagued by tuberculosis, family misfortunes, and persecution for his Communist views, Yannis Ritsos (1909–1990) spent many years in sanatoriums, prisons, and in political exile while producing over one hundred volumes of poems, dramas, and translations.

Aaron Ash

Raw food diets have exploded in popularity in recent years; some believe that the cooking process destroys nutrients and even produces dangerous chemicals by the interaction of heat with fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Enter Aaron Ash, a charismatic chef whose organic raw vegan restaurant Gorilla Food has taken Vancouver by storm for its inventive and delicious dishes, all prepared without use of animal products or a stove. Aaron is a conscientious raw vegan whose beliefs about food are tied to personal and social well-being. Gorilla Food strives to promote the idea that a sustainable, healthy culture depends on humankind living as “lightly” as possible, mitigating the damage wrought on the environment and ourselves. Gorilla Food the book is both an innovative cooking manual and a raw vegan bible; recipes include a raw lasagna made with zucchini noodles, kale, and a “cheese” made from walnuts, and a raw soup made from seasonal greens, tomatoes, and avocado. There’s also amazing raw pizzas, fruit pies, and chocolate desserts that will delight vegans and non-vegans alike with their complex flavors. The book also contains recipes for dehydrated and cultured foods, important for a raw food diet but surprisingly simple to prepare. Gorilla Food will make you go ape for living life to the rawest! In addition to running Gorilla Food, Aaron Ash was a former personal chef to Mike D of the Beastie Boys. He is also an in-demand caterer for highprofile events around North America, and is making plans to open additional Gorilla Food locations.

“Real, heart wrenching, sublime, and necessary.”—Rawi Hage V6A is the postal prefix for Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Canada’s poorest neighborhood and a prime example of the ramifications of urban blight in North America; it is also the epicenter of a notorious missing women’s case in which many sex workers and others were murdered, and home to a controversial safe-injection site for drug users. This anthology refracts the experience of those who live and work in the Downtown Eastside, reappropriating the coding of the area and recasting the neighborhood as a site of creative energy, community spirit, and human dignity.

Winner of the thirty-fourth annual 3-Day Novel Contest. Music journalist Evan Strocker has almost finished a book about his time with Heidegger Stairwell, a legendary indie rock band. But the band thinks he’s left a little too much of himself on the page—letting his experiences as a transgender man and his complicated “romance” with the lead guitarist eclipse the story of the group’s dramatic rise and fall. Through notes and marginalia, the musicians argue over their friend’s version of the truth and fight to put their own testimony on record.

Aunt Lute Books — Celebrating Thirty Years A Simple Revolution
Judy Grahn

A Simple Revolution is a unique memoir and a dramatic narrative of Judy Grahn’s working class roots, her army career and discharge for being lesbian, her education as one of the first whites to attend Howard University, and her life as a celebrated poet in the Bay Area during the tumultuous beginnings of the lesbian movement in the late ’60s. Judy Grahn is an internationally known poet, writer, and social theorist. She grew up in a working-class home in New Mexico. Seeking options not available in her small-town community of origin, she broke away and joined the Air Force. She was given a “blue discharge” (named for the blue paper on which these letters were printed) from the Air Force because she was a lesbian. This experience galvanized Grahn into public ownership of her lesbianism, into the writing of poetry, into lesbian activism, and into the project of publishing lesbian literature. She co-founded the Women’s Press Collective in Oakland, California, in 1969; using a barrel mimeograph machine, the WPC published the work of Grahn and other lesbians, including Pat Parker, Willyce Kim, and more. Grahn is the author of several poetry collections, including The Common Woman, A Woman is Talking to Death, and Love Belongs to Those Who Do the Feeling. Aunt Lute Books published a collection of Grahn’s work, The Judy Grahn Reader, in 2009. In addition to her poetry, Grahn has written several celebrated nonfiction works exploring woman-centered spirituality, gay history and culture, and lesbian writing.
This vivid, insightful memoir by acclaimed poet Judy Grahn captures the vibrant Bay Area lesbian movement from the 1960s onward.

Ballistic Publishing Transient Man
Justin Coro Kaufman

Transient Man is a black comedy about a homeless man whose visions lead him to believe he is an inter-dimensional savior of humanity, on a mission to save the universe. Is he indeed the “one,” chosen by mystical divine forces to embark on a crusade against ultimate evil, or a hopeless lunatic, aimlessly wandering the streets of San Francisco? Transient Man is a spoof on the hero’s journey that’s part Men In Black, part Raising Arizona, flavored with liberal portions of Ghostbusters and John Steinbeck. It is a ballad to the city by the bay, and a heartfelt take on the sacrifices one man will make for the love of his family, his friends, and all of humankind. Justin Coro Kaufman serves as the studio art director for Massive Black. Working professionally for the past fifteen years, Justin’s skill set initially led him to a lead artist and concept design position for an Activision developer in 2002. Since helping found Massive Black in 2003, he has lent his visualization and design skills to hundreds of Massive Black projects, ranging from high profile games (Infamous and Bioshock), television and print advertising (Desperate Housewives and Dancing With the Stars), film (Transformers 1, 2, and 3, and G.I. Joe 1 and 2), toy design, clothing, album jacket and poster design, graphic novels, and more. His multidisciplinary portfolio of work has enabled him to be a valuable asset to Massive Black’s design and pre-production arm.

Behler Publications The Four Gifts
How One Priest Received a Second, Third, and Fourth Chance at Life

Father Joseph Bradley
By all rights, Father Joseph Bradley should be dead. If past usage of beer, marijuana, and cocaine didn’t do the trick, then certainly heart failure should have. Instead, by the grace of God, he is alive, clean, sober, and a functioning Catholic priest with another man’s heart beating in his chest. But it came at a huge cost. While Joe was in his late teens, his father died suddenly. The loss was devastating, and Joe’s emotional desolation found escapist bliss in a beer bottle and cocaine vial, and he pledged irrevocable devotion to both. The slide into the abyss was ugly, and Joe finally sought help because there was nowhere else to go—which led him to serve others as a Catholic priest. The day of Joe’s ordination, an old friend came to the mass and announced for all to hear, “Well, now I can say I’ve seen a miracle.” Joe functioned for fifteen years as a sober priest before his heart gave out from the same heart disease that killed his father. But another miracle came his way, and he was blessed with a new heart—a gracious gift from a family during the most painful moment of their lives. Joe has been granted the blessing of four gifts: faith, sobriety, a new heart, and a fulfilling ministry. As Father Joe says, “Gratitude inspired this book. I owe it to people who helped rescue me from alcohol and drugs, and I owe it to my heart donor for giving me yet another chance at life.”

Father Joe Bradley’s spiritual journey from drug addict, to priest, to heart transplant patient, to a state of grace.

Behler Publications Pulse of My Heart
One Couple Survives A Wife’s Failing Heart

Patricia O’Mara-Croft and Brian O’Mara-Croft

Patricia O’Mara-Croft’s “widowmaker” heart attack was a cruel assault on her body, threatening the happiest years of her life. Originally misdiagnosed as a panic attack, common among women who suffer heart attacks, Patty’s heart suffers permanent damage, and her precarious condition threatens to raze all joy and hope between Patty and her husband, Brian. In a recounting both informative and inspirational, heartbreaking and funny, Patty and Brian share their stories from their own unique perspectives—the first-person account of painful revelations and medical struggles and a loved one’s experience of despair, hope, and renewal. Families in medical crisis are getting sucker-punched every day and need help from those who overcame it and emerge stronger than before. The dual voice of both authors represents a love that flourishes, even as Patty’s health weakens and is no longer a viable candidate for a heart transplant. Pulse of My Heart is part medical mystery, part comedy of errors, part family drama, and an enduring love story. The field notes at the back of the book focus on: • The sometimes-strained relationship between doctors and patient • Preparing for anticipatory grief • The potential for addiction when narcotics are part of the drug protocol • Dealing with familial strife during a time of need • Struggling with others’ prayers when one’s own faith is strained • Trying to maintain some level of dignity in an utterly undignified environment • Finding ways to be an effective parent in a blended family when illness demands so much attention
An unforgettable memoir: part medical mystery, part comedy of errors, part family drama, and, most of all, an enduring love story.

Bellevue Literary Press The Cage
The Fight for Sri Lanka and the Last Days of the Tamil Tigers

Gordon Weiss

“An excellent account . . . scrupulously fair.”—The Economist “This shattering, heartbreaking tale of savagery and suffering not only lifts the veil that conceals one of the most awful tragedies of the current era, but also helps us understand what should be done, not just in this sad and beautiful land, but long before other such horrors spiral out of control.” —Noam Chomsky, institute professor and professor of linguistics at MIT and author of Hopes and Prospects In the final days of the thirty-year Sri Lankan civil war, perhaps tens of thousands of civilians were killed as government forces hemmed in the last remaining Tamil Tiger rebels on a tiny sand-spit, dubbed “The Cage.” Gordon Weiss, a journalist on the scene as the UN spokesman in Sri Lanka, pulls back the curtain of government misinformation to tell the full story for the first time. Tracing the role of foreign influence as it converged with a history of radical Buddhism and ethnic conflict, The Cage is a harrowing portrait of the root causes and catastrophic consequences of a revolutionary uprising caught in the crossfire of international power jockeying. As Weiss relates the tale of an island paradise torn apart by war, he raises critical questions: Were war crimes committed? Was this the Obama administration’s first “human rights failure” (as suggested by Time magazine)? Does China’s central role in the Sri Lankan government’s victory sound a warning for democratic progress? Gordon Weiss has lived in New York and worked in numerous conflict and natural disaster zones including Bosnia, Afghanistan, Darfur, and Haiti. Employed by the United Nations for over twelve years, he is now a visiting scholar at Sydney University and a correspondent for Australia’s Global Mail.
An incisive first account of the formation, history, and bloody dissolution of the rebel Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka.

Bellevue Literary Press The Polish Boxer
Eduardo Halfon
Translated by Ollie Brock, Thomas Bunstead, Lisa Dillman, Daniel Hahn, and Anne McLean
“Eduardo Halfon’s prose is delicate, precise, and as ineffable as precocious art—a lighthouse that illuminates everything.”—Francisco Goldman, author of Say Her Name The Polish Boxer covers a vast landscape of human experience while enfolding a search for origins: a grandson tries to make sense of his grandfather’s past and the story behind his numbered tattoo; a Serbian classical pianist longs for his forbidden heritage; a young Mayan poet abandons his studies to tend his late father’s orchard; a university professor yearns for knowledge that he can’t find in books and discovers something unexpected at a Mark Twain conference. Drawn to what lies beyond the range of reason, they all reach for the beautiful and fleeting, whether through humor, music, poetry, or unspoken words. Across his encounters with each of them, the narrator—a Guatemalan literature professor and writer named Eduardo Halfon—pursues his most enigmatic subject: himself. Mapping the geography of identity in a world scarred by a legacy of violence and exile, The Polish Boxer marks the debut of a major new Latin American voice in English. Eduardo Halfon has been cited as among the best young Latin American writers by the Hay Festival of Bogotá and is the recipient of Spain’s prestigious José María de Pereda Prize for the Short Novel. In 2011 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship to continue the story of The Polish Boxer, which is his first novel to be published in English. He travels frequently to his native Guatemala and lives with his wife in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The English-language debut of a major Latin American writer.

Bellevue Literary Press The Child
Pascale Kramer
Translated by Tamsin Black

“A flawless black diamond . . . luminous.”—L’Hebdo (Switzerland) “A knock-out.”—Madame Figaro (France) “Kramer’s sensuous, close observation casts a hypnotic spell on the narrative, leaving the reader unable to put it down until the last word.”—Publishers Weekly on The Living, starred review Simone and Claude live in a house with a lush garden, enclosed by a gate that barely protects them from the growing violence and unrest of the surrounding low-income neighborhood. Simone mourns the loss of youth and possibility as Claude, a gym teacher who has been diagnosed with cancer, edges toward death. This is an unflinching portrait of a couple ravaged by illness and locked into mutual isolation—that is, until the arrival of a young boy brings hope and upsets their delicate danse macabre to devastating effect. Pascale Kramer dissects romantic love’s psychic carnage while unsentimentally revealing the unique beauty born of an adult’s love for a child in this “singularly moving and disturbing novel about the ambiguity of feelings” (Le Monde). As does Marguerite Duras, she wields spare language like a club and plumbs emotional depths rarely reached outside of poetry. A brilliant collision of hope and despair, The Child is a tour de force. Pascale Kramer is the author of The Living and the recipient of numerous awards, including the Prix Shiller (Switzerland) and the Prix du Roman de la Société des gens de lettres (France). The Child is her second novel to be translated into English. Born in Geneva, she lives in Paris, France.
An emotionally implosive novel about confronting the death of a loved one and the possibility of hope a child brings.

Biblioasis The Tuner of Silences
Mia Couto
Translated by David Brookshaw

“Quite unlike anything else I have read from Africa.”—Doris Lessing “By meshing the richness of African beliefs . . . into the Western framework of the novel, he creates a mysterious and surreal epic.”—Henning Mankell Mwanito Vitalício was eleven when he saw a woman for the first time, and the sight so surprised him he burst into tears. Mwanito’s been living in a big-game park for eight years. The only people he knows are his father, his brother, an uncle, and a servant. He’s been told that the rest of the world is dead, that all roads are sad, that they wait for an apology from God. In the place his father calls Jezoosalem, Mwanito has been told that crying and praying are the same thing. Both, it seems, are forbidden. The eighth novel by The New York Times-acclaimed Mia Couto, The Tuner of Silences is the story of Mwanito’s struggle to reconstruct a family history that his father is unable to discuss. With the young woman’s arrival in Jezoosalem, however, the silence of the past quickly breaks down, and both his father’s story and the world are heard once more. The Tuner of Silences was heralded as one of the most important books to be published in France in 2011 and remains a shocking portrait of the intergenerational legacies of war. Now available for the first time in English. Mia Couto is the author of twenty-five books. Translated into twenty languages, his novels have been bestsellers in Africa, Europe, and Latin America.

Biblioasis Psychology and Other Stories
C.P. Boyko
“Seriously clever.”—Russell Smith Psychologists are people we love to hate. At best, they’re compassionate detectives of the human soul, healers and diagnosticians, assessing the internal machinations that structure our lives and behavior. At worst, however, they’re smug, hyper-educated, bombastic, yappy, socially deaf, thrice-divorced and twice-separated spouse-swapping cat-torturing perverts. Plus, they’re all in this book. And so are their patients. C.P. Boyko’s Psychology and Other Stories is a brilliant study of mental illness, mental health, and the people who try to tell them apart.

David
Ray Robertson

Born a slave in 1847 but raised as a free man by the Reverend William King, David has rebelled against his emancipator and a future in the church. Now he’s a God-cursing, liquor-slinging, money-having, Hobbes-quoting manabout-town, famously educated, fabulously eccentric, and more-or-less happy . . . till the death of Reverend King brings his past back to haunt him. Inspired by the Elgin Settlement, which by 1852 housed seventy-five free black families and was studied by Abraham Lincoln, Ray Robertson’s novel is a fiery look at a community essential to the Underground Railroad’s success.

Nadine McInnis

As her characters struggle to administer to each other in their final moments, each story becomes an autopsy, dissecting bodies for their secrets and bloodlines for the things they hide. Nadine McInnis is the author of seven books and the winner of a CBC Literary Award.

Unruly Voices
Essays on Democracy, Civility, and the Human Imagination

Mark Kingwell
“His insights are intellectual anchors in a fast-changing world.”—Naomi Klein Mark Kingwell’s first book, A Civil Tongue, predicted with remarkable accuracy the Tea Party-style decline in political debate. Since then Kingwell has been urging readers to consider how bad public behavior can make it harder to imagine the society we want. Now, with these seventeen new essays, where cultural theorists share pages with poets, zombies, and presidents, Kingwell argues for a sympathetic democracy to counter the strangeness of the modern world. Mark Kingwell is the author of sixteen books and a contributing editor for Harper’s Magazine.

Bilingual Readers Bilingual Is Better
Two Latina Moms on How the Bilingual Parenting Revolution is Changing the Face of America

Roxana A. Soto and Ana L. Flores
For years immigrants were told that the only way for their children to embrace American culture was to leave behind their heritage language and speak only English. But what if this advice was based solely on political motives and not the wellbeing of children? What if the truth was that all children in America, regardless of their cultural background, would actually benefit from learning two languages? The answer to this question has sparked a new Latino parenting revolution that is changing the face of America. Roxana and Ana, founders of the wildly successful parenting blog SpanglishBaby, are part of a growing movement of Latino parents who are proudly reclaiming their language and cultural heritage for themselves and their children. Laugh and cry with them as they stumble through the ups and downs of raising bilingual, bicultural children in America and discover themselves in the process. This inspiring parenting memoir includes practical tips and resources to help parents from all backgrounds give their children the benefits of bilingualism. Bilingual Is Better debunks old stereotypes while shedding new light on hot topics like bilingual education, cultural heritage, and what it really means to be Latino. A perfect blend of hilarious anecdotes and solid research, this book is a fun, engaging read which is sure to spark conversation and positive change. Roxana A. Soto and Ana L. Flores co-founded the popular parenting blog SpanglishBaby, which was recently named a Must Read Mom’s Blog by Parenting magazine. Both authors are well known, award-winning bilingual journalists.
This entertaining memoir by two Latina moms reveals the struggles and triumphs of raising bilingual, bicultural children in the United States.

BIS Publishers Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow
Pop Music Wisdom

Marcus Kraft

When times are particularly difficult, and you are likely to slip into despair, some of the greatest pop songs can provide true comfort to make it through the pain. The problem with advice in general is that we often don’t take it. The great thing about advice songs is that you can kick back and listen to someone else coach you through a tough situation while rocking out at the same time. This wonderful book lists 250 of the best pop songs for those times that solid life advice is needed. The songs represent all popular music styles from the last fifty years, from rock to folk, and from punk to hip hop. There are for example many times in which the three words “let it be” are words of wisdom. Although the lyrics may have originally been written in reference to interpersonal difficulties within the Beatles, the song does possess a universality that makes “Let It Be” one of the great advice pop songs of all time. Other famous pop music advice to live by: • • • • “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by The Rolling Stones “If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free” by Sting “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” by Eric Idle

BIS Publishers The Pop-Up Generation
Design Between Dimensions

Edited by Lideweij Edelkoort

Young people easily shift between 2D and 3D, barely noticing a difference. Navigating this “no man’s land,” the new “pop-up generation” of designers create work that is malleable, transient, and ever-changing. The works selected have a few common characteristics. The projects popup. They float and melt down again. They are temporary. And they are mobile; they can take you anywhere. These projects are often hybrid, moving between the virtual and the physical world. And lastly they are very much DIY. The artist and designers are keen on sharing. Come join; make your own. It is give and take in this pop-up generation community. For The Pop-Up Generation: Design Between Dimensions, Lidewij Edelkoort in collaboration with Lotte van Gelder has collected outstanding and often poetical pop-up works which give a captivating and exciting picture of a new generation in the throes of designing the future. With additional essays from Paola Antonelli of the MOMA New York, Carla Fernandes, Bruce Sterling, and others, this thought-provoking book examines the pop-up phenomena in art and design and captures the essence of the time we live in.
A visual overview of the concept of pop-up in architecture and design from one of the world’s leading designers.

BIS Publishers Sustainist Design Primer
Collaborative Design for Connectivity, Localism, and Sustainable Life

Compiled by Michiel Schwarz and Diana Krabbendam
A practice of “social design” has emerged around issues such as community, crafts, sustainable living, public space, and housing. In the context of an emerging “culture of sustainism,” many successful social design projects have embraced qualities such as connectivity, sharing, and localism, as well as sustainability. Sustainism Design Primer charts what such “sustainist” values could mean for the practice of social design. It formulates an open-ended agenda for social design and presents a set of design criteria that goes well beyond “green” design. It brings together the key principles for sustainism design, maps out best practices, and explores workable ideas for developing future social design. Michiel Schwarz is a cultural thinker, innovator, and policy consultant working from Amsterdam and Berkeley, California. He holds a PhD in the sociology of technology from the University of London. He has advised public organizations and has initiated a wide range of projects on global issues, sustainable futures, design strategies, media culture, and innovation.

Bitter Lemon Press The Eyes of Lira Kazan
Eva Joly and Judith Perrignon
Translated by Emily Read

“Plot twists galore, relentless suspense and expert insights to satisfy anyone fascinated by today’s financial crisis.”—Culture TF1 From Lagos to London, by way of the Faroe Islands and St. Petersburg, an investigation turns deadly. The head of the Nigerian fraud squad is evacuated from Lagos by secret service operatives. Meanwhile a junior prosecutor in Nice probes the mysterious death of the wife of a powerful banker, and a crusading journalist in St. Petersburg pursues a corrupt oligarch and his criminal business empire. The paths of all three cross in London, where they find themselves embroiled in violent events obviously linked to financial and political interests and hunted by the oligarch’s men, the Western secret services, and goons sent by Nigerian oil magnates. A satirical, intelligent, and fast-paced thriller set in the world of high finance and low politics, The Eyes of Lira Kazan is co-written by Eva Joly and Judith Perrignon. Eva Joly is a prominent former prosecuting judge in Paris, France, and a candidate in the 2012 French presidential election. She is Norwegian born and this is her first novel. Judith Perrignon is a prize-winning essayist and the author of a number of historical and other literary works, including La nuit du Fouquet’s avec Ariane Chemin. This is her second novel after the much lauded Les Chagrins, published in France in 2011.

Bitter Lemon Press A Grain of Truth
Zygmunt Miłoszewski
Translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones
Praise for the first novel in the Teodor Szacki series: “In Entanglement Miłoszewski takes an engaging look at modern Polish society in this stellar first in a new series starring Warsaw prosecutor Teodor Szacki. Readers will want to see more of the complex, sympathetic Szacki.” —Publishers Weekly It is spring 2009, and prosecutor Szacki is no longer working in Warsaw— he has said goodbye to his family and to his career in the capital and moved to Sandomierz, a picturesque town full of churches and museums. Hoping to start a “brave new life,” Szacki instead finds himself investigating a strange murder case in surroundings both alien and unfriendly. The victim is found brutally murdered, her body drained of blood. The killing bears the hallmarks of legendary Jewish ritual slaughter, prompting a wave of anti-Semitic paranoia in the town, where everyone knows everyone. The murdered woman’s husband is bereft, but when Szacki discovers that she had a lover, the husband becomes the prime suspect. Before there’s time to arrest him, he is found murdered in similar circumstances. In his investigation Szacki must wrestle with the painful tangle of Polish–Jewish relations and something that happened more than sixty years earlier. Zygmunt Miłoszewski was born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1975. His first novel The Intercom was published in 2005 to high acclaim. In 2006 he published The Adder Mountains; in 2010, the crime novel Entanglement; and this year its sequel, A Grain of Truth.
Prosecutor Szacki’s investigation of a murder in a Polish town reveals the poisonous anti-Semitism that haunts all who live there. Also Available

Bitter Lemon Press Baksheesh
Esmahan Aykol
Translated by Ruth Whitehouse
Praise for the first Kati Hirschel Istanbul mystery: “The heroine is an offbeat amateur sleuth with a distinctive narrative voice. Fans of such female detectives as Amanda Cross’s Kate Fansler and Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher will find a lot to like.”—Publishers Weekly Kati Hirschel, the owner of Istanbul’s only mystery bookstore, is fed up. It all started when her lover Selim insisted that she behave like the Turkish wife of a respectable lawyer. Looking demure and making witty small talk were the only requirements. Then her landlord announced an outrageous rent increase on her Istanbul apartment. She has no desire to move in with Selim. She’d rather learn the art of bribing government officials in order to find a new place. Kati is offered a large apartment with a view over the Bosphorus at a bargain price. Too good to be true until a man is found murdered there and she becomes the police’s prime suspect. In her second novel Esmahan Aykol takes us to the alleys and boulevards of cosmopolitan Istanbul, to posh villas and seedy basement flats, to the property agents and lawyers, to Islamist leaders and city officials—in fact everywhere that baksheesh helps move things along. Esmahan Aykol was born in 1970 in Edirne, Turkey. She lives in Istanbul and Berlin. She has written three Kati Hirschel novels. Baksheesh is the second and has been published in Turkish, German, French, and Italian. The first, Hotel Bosphorus, was published by Bitter Lemon Press in 2011.
In Istanbul nothing happens without baksheesh. All fine until you’re the suspected murderer of the man you’ve paid off. Also Available

Bitter Lemon Press Reasonable Doubts
Gianrico Carofiglio
Translated by Howard Curtis

“The role of Guido Guerrieri is to take on impossible cases that have little chance of success. The lawyer accepts the case only because he’s fallen in lust with the prisoner’s wife; his efforts to prove his client’s innocence bring him into dangerous conflict with Mafia interests. Everything a legal thriller should be.”—The Times Counsel for the defense Guido Guerrieri is asked to handle the appeal of Fabio Paolicelli, who has been sentenced to sixteen years for drug smuggling. The odds are stacked against the accused: not only the fact that he initially confessed to the crime but also his past as a neo-Fascist thug. It is only the intervention of Paolicelli’s beautiful half-Japanese wife that finally overcomes Guerrieri’s reluctance. Matters are further complicated when Guerrieri ends up in bed with her. This book is hard-boiled and sun-dried in equal parts. Where Philip Marlowe would be knocking back bourbon and listening to the snap of fist on jaw, Guerrieri prefers Sicilian wine and Leonard Cohen. The local color is complemented by snappy legal procedural writing which sends the reader tumbling through the clockwork of a tightly wound plot.

Black Balloon Publishing Maverick Jetpants in The City of Quality
Bill Peters

“Full of madcap energy, swagger, and brinkmanship.”—Fiona Maazel, author of Last, Last Chance Which I expect to be Toby, with his Colonel-Hellstache shaved head and his milkbag fat bulked around him. But instead, it's some shaved-headed guy who I don't even know. He's wearing a wifebeater and a leather vest, and these Army pants tucked into Nazi-type boots tied tight around his legs. His arms are as muscleless as the vanilla flats of an ice-cream sandwich. He has this sneery look on his face, with wire-rimmed glasses, i.e., not exactly a Rambo's Rambo. Necro doesn't even bother to introduce me, so I'm immediately calling the guy Rambocream. It's 1999 in economically gutted Rochester, New York—“The City of Quality”— and twenty-one-year-old Nate still lives at home with his cynical, overwhelmed mom and Fake Dad #3. He speaks in a made-up language of middle school jokes and bizarre catchphrases. His best friend Necro may be under the influence of a neo-Nazi gang that is burning down their hometown. Will Nate stop joking around, solve the mystery of the arsons, and grow up? Or is he destined to a life of mediocrity working night shifts at the Kodak plant? Originally from Rochester, New York, Bill Peters has worked as an editor and journalist, and is now an editor for The New York Times Syndicate and News Service. He lives in Gainesville, Florida. This is his first book.
Rochester, “The City of Quality,” 1999; a mystery surrounding arson; a hilarious and heart-breaking friendship based on a language of inside jokes.

Edited by Kevin Young and Michael S. Glaser
Foreword by Toni Morrison Afterword by Kevin Young
“If you only read one poetry book in 2012, The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton ought to be it.”—NPR “The love readers feel for Lucille Clifton—both the woman and her poetry— is constant and deeply felt. The lines that surface most frequently in praise of her work and her person are moving declarations of racial pride, courage, steadfastness.”—Toni Morrison, from the foreword The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton 1965–2010 combines all eleven of Lucille Clifton’s published collections with more than fifty previously unpublished poems. The unpublished poems feature early poems from 1965–1969, a collection-in-progress titled the book of days (2008), and a poignant selection of final poems. An insightful foreword by Nobel Prize–winning author Toni Morrison and comprehensive afterword by noted poet Kevin Young frames Clifton’s lifetime body of work, providing the definitive statement about this major America poet’s career. On February 13, 2010, the poetry world lost one of its most distinguished members with the passing of Lucille Clifton. In the last year of her life, she was named the first African American woman to receive the $100,000 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize honoring a US poet whose “lifetime accomplishments warrant extraordinary recognition,” and was posthumously awarded the Robert Frost Medal for lifetime achievement from the Poetry Society of America. “mother-tongue: to man-kind” (from the unpublished the book of days): all that I am asking is that you see me as something more than a common occurrence, more than a woman in her ordinary skin.

Diadem: Selected Poems
Marosa di Giorgio
Translated with an introduction by Adam Giannelli
Marosa di Giorgio has one of the most distinct and recognizable voices in Latin American poetry. Her surreal and fable-like prose poems invite comparison to Franz Kafka, Julio Cortázar, or even contemporary American poets Russell Edson and Charles Simic. But di Giorgio’s voice, imagery, and themes—childhood, the Uruguayan countryside, a perception of the sacred— are her own. Previously written off as “the mad woman of Uruguayan letters,” di Giorgio’s reputation has blossomed in recent years. Marosa di Giorgio was born in Salto, Uruguay, in 1932. Her first book Poemas was published in 1953. Also a theater actress, she moved to Montevideo in 1978, where she lived until her death in 2004.

Breakaway Books Honey, Do You Need a Ride?
Confessions of a Fat Runner

Jennifer Graham

This laugh-out-loud comedic memoir of life as an overweight runner moves along at a five-minute-per-mile pace. Jennifer Graham doesn’t run to lose weight—she runs because she loves it. And as much as she runs, her excess poundage never leaves. So she accepts her body type for what it is, and runs for the sheer joy of it. But along the way she must endure not only her selfmade exhaustion and lactic acid, but also the bemused stares of neighbors, offers of a car ride from strangers, and disdain from the dominant strain of runner—those long, lean “shirtless wonders.” The story revolves around her decision to run a serious half-marathon race, and her imaginary coaching relationship with the spirit of Steve Prefontaine. The late, great Oregon distance star gives her advice and encouragement, and doesn’t like excuses. (“Yeah, I know he’s been dead thirty-five years; it’s a minor metaphysical challenge.”) Moreover, the race is one month after Graham’s ex-husband is getting remarried (to a skinny woman), and the emotional rollercoaster heightens the intensity of her running. As she says, “If training for it doesn’t help me get over the pain, at least it will keep me preoccupied.” Her irreverent, hilarious, and brutally honest story will appeal to runners and non-runners alike, fat or thin.
A brutally honest, outrageously funny story of being overweight in a notoriously skinny sport.

Breakaway Books Back to the Zone
Sport and Inner Experiences

Damien Lafont, PhD

“The Zone” is that quasi-mystical state achieved only rarely by athletes, when everything flows effortlessly and you can do no wrong. Unfortunately, we enter the Zone seemingly at random, when it is least expected. The great hope of all competitors is to be able to summon the Zone at will. Toward this end, Back to the Zone breaks the Zone down into its many components and helps the athlete optimize each one: balance, absorption, clarity, feedback, concentration, control, loss of self-consciousness, imagination, positive thoughts, energy, self-esteem, meditation, and quiet mind. Ultimately, Damien Lafont shows us that reaching the Zone is more about freeing our mind from the unnecessary rather than learning new techniques and concepts. This is a short, clear, practical guide for athletes in all sports. With it the golfer or the baseball player, the runner or the swimmer, the tennis player or the cyclist will all reach new levels of performance, and will find themselves “in the Zone” more often.

Bywater Books Art on Fire
Hilary Sloin

Art on Fire is the apparent biography of subversive painter Francesca deSilva, the founding foremother of “pseudorealism,” who lived hard and died young. But in the tradition of Vladimir Nabokov’s acclaimed novel Pale Fire, it’s a fiction from start to finish. It opens with Francesca’s early life. We learn about her childhood love, the chess genius Lisa Sinsong, as well as her rivalry with her brilliant sister Isabella, who publishes an acclaimed volume of poetry at the age of twelve. She compensates for the failings of her less than attentive parents by turning to her grandmother who is loyal and adoring until she learns Francesca is a lesbian, when she rejects her. Francesca flees to a ramshackle cabin in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, working weekends at the flea market. She breaks into the gloomy basement of a house, where she begins her life as a painter. Much to her confusion and even dismay, fame comes quickly. Interspersed with Francesca’s narrative are thirteen critical “essays” on the paintings of Francesca deSilva by critics, academics, and psychologists—essays that are razor-sharp satires on art, lesbian life, and the academic world, puncturing pretentiousness with every paragraph. Art on Fire is a darkly comic, pitchperfect, and fearless satire on the very art of biography itself. Art on Fire is the latest winner of the Bywater Prize for Fiction and was a finalist for the Heekin Foundation Award, the Dana Awards, and the Story Oaks Prize. It was mistakenly awarded the nonfiction prize in the Amherst Book and Plow Competition.
An amazing novel and pseudo-biography about the short but remarkable life of a young painter living in her sister’s shadow.

Bywater Books The Raven’s Heart
A Story of a Quest, a Castle and Mary Queen of Scots

Jesse Blackadder

“Jesse Blackadder has all the hallmarks of a great historical fiction writer, achieving a fine balance of thoroughly researched atmospheric detail and suspenseful story. . . . In The Raven’s Heart she doesn’t hit one wrong note.” —The Sunday Telegraph Scotland, 1561, and a ship comes across the North Sea carrying home Mary, the young, charismatic Queen of Scots, returning after thirteen years in the French court to wrest back control of her throne. The Blackadder family has long awaited for the Queen’s return to bring them justice. Alison Blackadder, disguised as a boy from childhood to protect her from the murderous clan that stole their lands, must learn to be a lady-inwaiting to the Queen, building a web of dependence and reward. Just as the Queen can trust nobody, Alison discovers lies, danger, and treachery at every turn. This sweeping, imaginative, and original tale of political intrigue, misplaced loyalty, secret passion, and implacable revenge is based on real characters and events from the reign of Mary Queen of Scots. The Raven’s Heart is a breathtaking epic from a bold, fresh voice. Winner of the Varuna HarperCollins Manuscript Development Award, The Raven’s Heart was published in Australia in 2011. Jesse Blackadder finally had enough of people asking if she was related to Rowan Atkinson, star of the BBC sitcom Blackadder. She traveled to Scotland to find the origins of her surname and discovered the ruins of Blackadder House on the banks of the Blackadder River. The Raven’s Heart grew from there. Jesse lives in Byron Bay, Australia.
The Raven’s Heart is a breathtaking epic set during the disastrous reign of Mary Queen of Scots.

Bywater Books 80% Done With Straight Girls
Mari SanGiovanni

Love and loss should not be this funny, but the entire Santora family has descended upon Marie again, just when Marie is sure she doesn’t need them anymore. After losing Erica she has made a vow to be done with straight girls once and for all. Then her ex makes a house call and puts her willpower to the test, proving that desperate times really do call for desperate measures. Meanwhile, Marie’s sister Lisa has ditched her gay campground in favor of becoming a celebrity chef. Lisa makes a career for herself by channeling her dead Aunt Aggie and the spirits of dead relatives while she cooks. She sees them squabbling, insulting, and love-tapping each other to get fresh dibs on all the ingredients, and follows their lead. Lisa and her “ghosts” invent dishes like the heavenly “Pasta Fa Brawl” and the audience loves it as she takes talk shows by storm. After all, who says playing with ghosts from the past can’t be fun and profitable? From Jamaica to Camptown and now landing lakeside, these ladies are still serving the fun up Italian style: loud, lusty, and with lots of love and laughs. Mari SanGiovanni was a Lambda Literary Award Finalist with her first book about the Santora family, Greetings From Jamaica, Wish You Were Queer. Her second book in the series, Camptown Ladies, was released in December 2011 and is receiving great reviews. Mari is a member of a very large Italian family.
Marie Santora and her wild Italian family return for another hilarious romp through Rhode Island.

Francesca DeTomassa—Fran to her friends—has it all: she’s the daughter of a local politician, she’s won scholarships to college and law school, and now, in her final year and about to graduate, she even has the internship she wants at a film production studio in California. But Fran has a secret—she is a sworn member of the Circle, an order who protect and promote the Light. Fran is bound to them not only by oath and law, but also by blood, soul, and love to the person who is the Circle’s focal point, the Wielder. And the Circle has a dogma—We do things not because they are easy, but because they are right. Fran accepts that sometimes love must be sacrificed for the greater good, with the hope of “someday.” When Fran realizes that the Dark that touches the woman she loves is something that only the Wielder can truly handle, she knows that someday is now, bringing with it a choice to be made. But is she strong enough to choose what is ultimately the greatest good, not for her, but for everyone?

Centipede Press Hannes Bok
A Life in Illustration

Edited by Joseph Wrzos

Hannes Bok (1914–1964) is considered to be one of the premier fantasy illustrators of the twentieth century. Dying young, he left behind a mostly uncollected array of wonderful and astonishing black-and-white pulp illustrations, a dozen or so dazzling dust jacket covers, and an as-yet-undetermined number of gorgeous color paintings, most of them quickly snapped up early by connoisseurs and still under heavy guard in private collections. And it was only due to the efforts of a few dedicated admirers, who published the first Bok collections, that the richer part of his legacy still survives. But even these early Bok collections are out of print and going for high prices in the collectors’ market. As a consequence, none of Bok’s artwork is currently available to the general public, and there is still much that has never been reproduced in the first place. Hannes Bok: A Life in Illustration redresses this by bringing back into print not only his out of print artwork but many newly discovered drawings and paintings, reproduced here for the first time. In addition, A Life in Illustration also includes a rich selection of critical and biographical background material, including a nostalgic memoir by Ray Bradbury, incisive tributes by fellow artists, a newly uncovered letter of encouragement by Maxfield Parrish, and Bok’s own concise autobiography, as well as his long unavailable essay, “Hannes Bok Looks at Fantasy Art and Illustration,” a cogent elaboration of his artistic credo. Hannes Bok: A Life in Illustration could well prove to be the definitive edition honoring his life and work.
The most massive and comprehensive collection of Hannes Bok’s work ever published, with dozens of new paintings never before seen.

Central Recovery Press My Life As a Border Collie
Freedom from Codependency

Nancy L. Johnston, MS, LPC, LSATP

In this fun, inviting look at a serious topic—codependence—Nancy L. Johnston shares the life lessons she learned from her observations of the relationship behaviors exhibited by her pet collie, Daisy: “The book began by my noticing behaviors in Daisy that resemble the codependent behaviors in me, which I have been working to moderate through my recovery. Daily I am struck by our tendencies to attend to others, to herd, to overreact.” Johnston’s delightful book examines twelve specific behaviors that, in their extreme form, can be codependent. It also offers new information on codependence and help for it, including the latest research-supported findings, so that readers can understand “What am I doing that is not producing the relationship results I really want?” Nancy L. Johnston, MS, LPC, LSATP, is a licensed psychotherapist and licensed substance abuse treatment practitioner in private practice in Lexington, Virginia. She has thirty-three years of clinical experience addressing a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. Johnston specializes in treating adolescents and adults, and has always had a special interest in addiction and its effects on both individuals and family systems. Her first book, Disentangle: When You’ve Lost Your Self in Someone Else, was published by Central Recovery Press in 2011.
A whimsical yet meaningful look at codependency by relating it to traits observed in the author’s beloved border collie, Daisy.

The Helm Family’s Five Generations as Outsiders in Japan

Leslie D. Helm

Leslie D. Helm’s decision to adopt Japanese children launches him on a personal journey through his family’s 140 years in Japan, beginning with his great-grandfather, who worked as a military advisor in 1870 and defied custom to marry his Japanese mistress. The family’s poignant experiences of love and war help Helm overcome his cynicism and embrace his Japanese and American heritage. This is the first book to look at Japan across five generations, with perspective that is both from the inside and through foreign eyes. Helm draws on his great-grandfather’s unpublished memoir and a wealth of primary source material to bring his family history to life. Leslie D. Helm is a veteran foreign correspondent, having served eight years in Tokyo for Business Week and the Los Angeles Times. Currently, he is editor of Seattle Business, a monthly magazine that has won multiple first place excellence in journalism awards in the Pacific Northwest. Helm earned a master’s degree in journalism from the Columbia University School of Journalism and in Asian studies from the University of California, Berkeley. He was born and raised in Yokohama, Japan, where his family has lived since 1868.
A sweeping memoir about a foreign family’s five generations as outsiders in Japan.

Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans?
Third Edition

Edited by Bruce Rutledge and David Rutledge
“So lovely to look at, so pleasant to hold, with a bit of intrigue or insight on every page.”—The Times-Picayune This book of essays and art was compiled in the fall of 2005 while the writers were living in exile and watching their city drown. This lovingly designed paperback edition opens with a line of cars leaving New Orleans ahead of Hurricane Katrina and ends in a mad Mardi Gras romp. The anthology, structured like a jazz funeral, includes essays by Jason Berry and Toni McGee Causey as well as reproductions of ninteenth century prints of the city.

Cinco Puntos Press Make It, Take It
Rus Bradburd

An inventive novel, Make It, Take It sneaks the reader past the press conferences, locker rooms, and huddles of college basketball. Without judgment or sentimentality, Rus Bradburd lays bare the web of conflicts between players and coaches, blacks and whites, revealing the complex humanity of a team’s inner circle. Here, every choice has a very real cost. Steve Pytel is an assistant coach and top recruiter for a university basketball program. His goals are simple. He wants to keep his job and be a head coach someday. Keeping his wife barely makes the list. The team staggers; everyone’s days are numbered. Pytel was responsible for landing prized recruits Leonard Redmond and Jamal Davis. Pytel’s duties now? Keep Leonard out of jail. Make sure Jamal ignores the advice of his preacher, sidesteps his girlfriend’s pregnancy, and puts the ball in the basket. Good thing Pytel doesn’t carry around a bagful of scruples. Rus Bradburd is the author of the controversial Forty Minutes of Hell: The Extraordinary Life of Nolan Richardson (HarperCollins/Amistad) and a memoir, Paddy on the Hardwood: A Journey in Irish Hoops (University of New Mexico Press). He spent fourteen years as a college basketball coach, working for legends Don Haskins and Lou Henson. A regular contributor to SLAM Magazine, his essays have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Houston Chronicle, and Chicago’s SouthtownStar. He is married to poet Connie Voisine. They live in New Mexico and Chicago, Illinois.
Witty and cynical, this isn’t the college basketball we hear about on TV. And Rus Bradburd knows what he’s talking about.

City Lights Publishers Sister Spit
Writing, Rants and Reminiscence from the Road

Edited by Michelle Tea

A collection of writing and artwork from the irreverent, flagrantly queer, hilariously feminist, tough-talking, genre-busting ruffians who have toured with the legendary Sister Spit. Co-founded in 1997 by award-winning writer Michelle Tea, Sister Spit is an underground cultural institution, a genderbending writers’ cabaret that brings a changing roster of both emerging writers and some of the most important queer and counterculture artists of the day to universities, art galleries, community spaces, and other venues across the country and worldwide. Sister Spit: Writing, Rants and Reminiscence from the Road captures the provocative, politicized, and risk-taking elements that characterize the Sister Spit aesthetic, stamping the raw energy and signature style of the live show onto the page. Bratty poets and failed priestesses, punk angst and tough love, too much to drink and tattooed timelines—this anthology captures it all in a collection of poetry, personal narrative, fiction, and artwork. Featuring a who’s who of queer and queer-centric writers and artists, the collection functions as a travelog, a historical document, and a yearbook from irreverent graduates of the school of hard knocks. Includes contributions by Eileen Myles, Beth Lisick, Michelle Tea, MariNaomi, Cristy Road, Ali Liebegott, Blake Nelson, Lenelle Moise, and many more! Editor and Sister Spit co-founder Michelle Tea is an award-winning author, poet, and literary arts organizer. She is the author of Valencia and Rent Girl, and the co-editor of Los Angeles Times bestseller Pills, Thrills, Chills and Heartache, among other works.
An outrageous and wildly popular performance tour of queer-centric, feminist, sex-positive writers, captured in print and coming to your town!

City Lights Publishers National Insecurity
The Cost of American Militarism

Melvin A. Goodman

Praise for Melvin A. Goodman’s The Failure of Intelligence: “An important and eye-opening account for policy makers and concerned citizens alike.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review Upon leaving the White House in 1961, President Eisenhower famously warned Americans about the dangers of a “military industrial complex,” and was clearly worried about the destabilizing effects of a national economy based on outsized investments in military spending. Today in 2012, as more and more Americans fall into poverty and the global economy spirals downward, the United States is spending more on the military than ever before. What are the consequences and what can be done? Melvin A. Goodman, a twenty-four-year veteran of the CIA, brings peerless authority to his argument that US military spending is indeed making Americans poorer and less secure while undermining our political standing in the world. Drawing from his firsthand experience with war planners and intelligence strategists, Goodman offers an insider’s critique of the US military economy from President’s Eisenhower’s farewell warning to Barack Obama’s expansion of the military’s power. He outlines a much needed vision for how to alter our military policy, practices, and spending in order to better position the United States globally and enhance prosperity and security at home. Melvin A. Goodman is a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy. A former professor of international security at the National War College and an intelligence adviser to strategic disarmament talks in the 1970s, he is the author of several books, including the critically acclaimed The Failure of Intelligence.

City Lights Publishers Occupy the Economy
Challenging Capitalism

Richard Wolff
Interviewed by David Barsamian
Today’s economic crisis is capitalism’s worst since the Great Depression. Millions have lost jobs, homes, and healthcare. Many with jobs watch pensions, benefits, and job security decline. While most live with increasing uncertainty, the system makes the very wealthy even richer. In eye-opening interviews with prominent economist Richard Wolff, David Barsamian probes the root causes of the current crisis, its unjust social costs, and what can and should be done to turn things around. While others blame corrupt bankers and unregulated speculators, the government, or even the poor who borrowed, the authors show that the causes of the crisis run much deeper. They reach back to the 1970s when the capitalist system itself shifted, ending the century-old pattern of rising wages for Americans and thereby enabling the top 1% to become ultra-rich at the expense of the 99%. Since then, economic injustice has become chronic and further corrupted politics. Occupy’s indignation with the whole system mobilizes a diverse range of Americans who seek basic change. Occupying the Economy not only clarifies and analyzes the crisis in US capitalism today, it also points toward solutions that can shape a far better future for all. Richard Wolff is professor emeritus of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and visiting professor at the New School in New York City. He hosts a program on WBAI and is author of the hit book Capitalism Hits the Fan. David Barsamian is director of Alternative Radio and author of many interview books, including Targeting Iran with Noam Chomsky.
A hot-button primer on the taboo subject impacting most Americans today: the failure of capitalism to deliver public good. Marketing Plans

Coming of age in California’s post-war suburbs and freefalling through the turbulence of the sixties and early seventies, Eddie’s transformation from a boy’s innocence to a man’s hardened wariness is captured in lyrical, emotionally raw episodes.

City Lights Spotlight Series No. 8

Catherine Wagner
In Nervous Device, Catherine Wagner takes inspiration from William Blake’s “bounding line” to explore the poem as a body at the intersection between poet and audience. Using this as a figure for sexual, political, and economic interactions, Wagner’s poems shift between seductive lyricism and brash fragmentation as they negotiate the failure of human connection in the twilight of American empire. Catherine Wagner was born in Burma to American military parents. She received her MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, studying with Jorie Graham, Donald Revell, and Denis Johnson, and a PhD from the University of Utah. She teaches at Miami University.

City Lights Publishers The Wondrous Mushroom
Mycolatry in Mesoamerica

R. Gordon Wasson
Introduction by Daniel Pinchbeck
“From now on any comprehensive study of Ancient Mexican civilization must start from (and with) your discoveries.”—Octavio Paz “The late Mr. Wasson is the Abraham of the reborn awareness in Western civilization of the presence of the shamanically empowering mushroom.” —Terrence McKenna In 1957 Life magazine created a sensation by publishing an article about the experiences of a JP Morgan executive who took mind-altering mushrooms with a shaman woman in Mexico. The story captured the imagination of a generation, inspiring waves of intellectuals, artists, and seekers to travel in search of the mushrooms and the indigenous healer, Maria Sabina. Today, Gordon Wasson is credited with having triggered the psychedelic revolution and his influence lives on through the growing community of people who study indigenous spirituality, sacred plants, and their role in personal transformation. In celebration of Wasson’s pioneering work, we present a reprint of his classic The Wondrous Mushroom, an in-depth study of shamanic realities, mushrooms, and traditions connecting contemporary practices to pre-Conquest art, architecture, and culture. The book begins with Wasson’s first experiences taking mushrooms, going into a wealth of details about sacred indigenous ceremonies, culture, and practices. The Wondrous Mushroom reflects a lifetime of studies, personal experiences, and reflections on shamanism, culture, community well-being, healing, and spiritual strength. Long out of print, this new edition is a must-have for anyone interested in the history of psychedelics. R. Gordon Wasson (1898–1986) founded the field of “enthnomycology” and was considered the preeminent authority on the use of psychoactive mushrooms.

City Lights Publishers Robert Duncan in San Francisco
Expanded Edition

Michael Rumaker

A newly expanded edition of an enduring classic, Robert Duncan in San Francisco is both a portrait of the premier poet of the San Francisco Renaissance and a fascinating account of gay life in late 1950s America. Following his graduation from Black Mountain College, Michael Rumaker made his way to the postHowl, pre-Stonewall gay literary milieu of San Francisco, where he entered the circle of Robert Duncan. His account of that time gives an unvarnished look at Duncan’s magnetic personality and occasional failings, while delivering vivid snapshots of other significant poets like Jack Spicer, John Wieners, and Joanne Kyger against the backdrop of legendary North Beach haunts like The Place, Vesuvio, and City Lights Books. Contrasting Duncan’s daringly frank homosexuality with his own then-closeted life, Rumaker conjures up with harrowing detail an era of police persecution of a largely clandestine gay community struggling to survive in the otherwise “open city” of San Francisco. First published in 1996, this expanded edition includes a selection of previously unpublished letters between Rumaker and Duncan, and an interview conducted for this edition, in which Rumaker provides further reflections on the poet and the period. Michael Rumaker has written several novels and short story collections, as well as the memoir Black Mountain Days. He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and is a graduate of Black Mountain College—where Duncan served as his outside thesis advisor—and Columbia University. He taught at City University of New York and the New School for Social Research.
A revealing portrait of the foremost poet of the San Francisco Renaissance and a gripping account of late 1950s gay life.

Coach House Books Maidenhead
Tamara Faith Berger

“Maidenhead is a mesmerizing and important novel, lying somewhere between the wilds of Judy Blume, Girls Gone Wild, and Michel Foucault. It’s a thrilling, brilliant, and really hot place to be.”—Sheila Heti On a mangy beach in Key West on an embarrassing family Spring Break vacation, Myra, naïve and curious, meets Elijah, a charismatic Tanzanian musician twice her age. Myra longs to lose her virginity to him, and is shocked to learn he lives with Gayl, a secretive and violent woman with a strange power over him. Myra and her disintegrating family return home, and Myra falls in with a pot-smoking anarchist crowd. But when Gayl and Elijah follow her north, she walks willingly into their world: Myra continues to experiment sexually with Elijah, while Gayl plays an integral part in the increasingly abject games. As Myra enters unfamiliar worlds of sex, porn, race, and class, she explores territories unknown in herself. Maidenhead traverses the desperate, wild spaces of a teenage girl’s self-consciousness. How does a girl feel scared? What is she scared of? And how does telling yourself not to be scared really work? Tamara Faith Berger lives in Toronto, Ontario. She wrote porn for a living and attempted to make dirty films before publishing her first book, Lie With Me, which was made into a film. She has also published A Woman Alone at Night.

“Like Anaïs Nin, Berger pays little attention to what is expected of a woman writing smut.”—The Globe and Mail

Heather Birrell

“This is a beautiful book: funny, whip-smart, compassionate, and gorgeously written. Heather Birrell belongs in the short story pantheon with Alice Munro, Lisa Moore, and Zsuzsi Gartner.”—Annabel Lyon In the stories of Mad Hope, Heather Birrell finds the heart of her characters and lets them lead us into worlds both unrecognizable and alarming. We think we know these people but discover we don’t—they are more alive, more real, and more complex than we first imagined. A high school science teacher is forced to re-examine the role he played in Nicolae Ceausescu’s Romania after a stu¸ dent makes a shocking request. The uncertainty, anxiety, and anticipation of pregnancy are examined through an online chat group. Parenting is viewed from the perspective of a gay man caring for his friend and her adopted son. A tragic plane crash becomes the basis for a meditation on motherhood and its discontents. Birrell uses precise, inventive language to capture the beautiful mess of being human—and more than lives up to her Journey Prize accolades. Her characters come to greet us, undo us, make us yearn, and make us smile.

Coach House Books Probably Inevitable
Matthew Tierney

“Tierney accomplishes certain Albert Goldbarthian feats, weaving whiz-bang with philosophical insights that will break your heart.”—American Literary Review These are high-energy poems, riddled with wit and legerdemain and jolted by the philosophy and science of time. “Time’s not the market, it’s the bustle; / not the price but worth,” he writes, sailing through the rhythms and algorithms of a world made concrete by Samuel Johnson, before it was undone by Niels Bohr. Matthew Tierney’s narrators grapple with the gap between what’s seen and what’s experienced, their minds tuned to one (probably) inevitable truth: the more I understand, the more I understand I’m alone. Matthew Tierney is the author of the Trillium Award–nominated The Hayflick Limit and Full Speed through the Morning Dark. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.

The Politics of Knives
Jonathan Ball

“[Ball is] one of our most exciting young poets.”—Robert Kroetsch If Lisa Robertson were to collide with David Lynch in a dark alley, the result would be a lot like The Politics of Knives. From shattered narratives to surrealistic fantasies, the poems in The Politics of Knives bridge the gap between the conventional and the experimental, combining the intellectual with the visceral. The complicity of language in violence, and the production of stories as both a defensive and offensive gesture, trouble the stability of these poetic sequences that dwell in the borderland between speaking and screaming. Jonathan Ball teaches English, film, and writing at two universities.

Coach House Books The Lease
Mathew Henderson
Inspired by the poet’s experiences working in the Saskatchewan oilfields, The Lease explores masculinity and the roles morality, violence, and hard labor play in it. Equal parts character study, cultural documentary, and coming-of-age narrative, Henderson’s poems make it clear that however we may try to stay apart from them, the stubborn and unflattering realities of masculine culture persist, not just in isolated, dangerous environments, but in our very idea of what work is. No mark survives this place: you too will yield to unmemory. Give everything you are in three-day pieces. Watch the gypsy iron move, follow its commands. Tend the rusted steel like a shepherd. Mathew Henderson lives in Toronto, Ontario, writes about the prairies, and teaches at Humber College. The Lease is his first collection of poetry.

Cutting Room
Sarah Pinder

Cutting Room both describes and pushes against the anxious hum of the technologically saturated present. Sarah Pinder’s poems navigate domestic and “natural” spaces as landscapes charged with possible violence and desire while they scan scenes as an outsider or camera eye to unsettle and fray familiar settings. Using hyper-focus and the long gaze, they draw the eye to the corners and seams of these spaces, slowing us down, shifting our focus to worn detail, asking us to seek pattern and possibility in a hyper-paced present tense. These are little ominous films, documenting the minutiae around us that can be our undoing.

“[Here] exists a kind of nakedness, a peeling away of propriety, a questioning of behavioral and social systems—and yet I find their work refreshingly playful and deeply generous.”—Deborah Stratman, University of Illinois at Chicago The literary post-punk short movies of Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby have been tearing up the festival/gallery circuit for fifteen years with their blend of bedroom pop, perverse animations, and hopes for fame. In this collection of award-winning scripts and creative writings, scholars, video legends, and animal experts—including Steve Reinke, Sarah Hollenberg, Akira Lippit, and Tom Sherman—weigh in on why these movies matter. Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby have been collaborating since 1994. Their work has won the top prize at festivals in Ann Arbor and Chicago, and awards in New York, Zurich, and Hamburg. They teach at Syracuse University. Mike Hoolboom is an internationally renowned experimental moviemaker and critic.

Some Great Idea
Good Neighbourhoods, Crazy Politics and the Invention of Toronto

Edward Keenan
Since 2010 Toronto’s headlines have been consumed by the outrageous personal foibles and government-slashing, anti-urbanist policies of Mayor Rob Ford. But the heated debate at City Hall has obscured a bigger, decade-long narrative of Toronto’s ascending as a mature global city. It raises questions: What role does a mayor play in a city’s temperament and self-confidence? Can a terrible mayor make a city better by forcing its citizens to engage? What place is there in our new decentralized, global, open-source world for an autocrat? Edward Keenan serves as senior editor and lead columnist at The Grid magazine in Toronto, Ontario. An eight-time finalist at the National Magazine Awards, he has written for and edited at Eye Weekly, Spacing magazine, and The Walrus.

Coffee House Press Hold It ’Til It Hurts
T. Geronimo Johnson

“The magnificence of Hold It ’Til It Hurts is not only in the prose and the story but also in the book’s great big beating heart. These complex and compelling characters and the wizardry of Johnson’s storytelling will dazzle and move you from first page to last. Novels don’t teach us how to live but Hold It ’Til It Hurts will make you hush and wonder.”—Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead “This rich and sophisticated first novel brings together pleasures rarely found in one book: Hold It ’Til It Hurts is a novel about war that goes in search of passionate love, a dreamy thriller, a sprawling mystery, a classical quest for a lost brother in which the shadowy quarry is clearly the seeker’s own self, and a meditation on family and racial identity that makes its forerunners in American fiction look innocent by comparison.”—Jaimy Gordon, National Book Award winner for Lord of Misrule When Achilles and his brother Troy Conroy return from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, their mother presents them with the key to their past: envelopes containing details about their respective birth parents. After Troy disappears, Achilles—always his brother’s keeper—embarks on a harrowing journey in search of his brother, an experience that will change him forever. Heartbreaking, intimate, and at times disturbing, Hold It ’Til It Hurts is a modern-day black man’s odyssey through war, adventure, disaster, and love and explores how we respond in the wake of disaster. T. Geronimo Johnson was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. His fiction and poetry have appeared in Best New American Voices, Indiana Review, Los Angeles Review of Books, and Illuminations, among others. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and a former Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, Johnson teaches writing at the University of California–Berkeley. Hold It ’Til It Hurts is his first book.
A riveting debut—a black Afghanistan veteran in search of his lost brother amid the chaos of Hurricane Katrina.

“There is always a surprise in the voice and in the heart of Laird Hunt’s stories, with its echoes of habit caught in a timeless dialect, so we see the world he gives us as if new. ‘You hear something like that and it walks out the door with you.’”—Michael Ondaatje “Laird Hunt’s Kind One, about two slave girls who take their white mistress into captivity, is a profound meditation on the sexual and racial subconscious of America. . . . [A] gorgeous and terrifying novel.”—Danzy Senna As a teenage girl, Ginny marries Linus Lancaster, her mother’s second cousin, and moves to his Kentucky pig farm “ninety miles from nowhere.” In the shadows of the lush Kentucky landscape, Ginny discovers the empty promises of Linus’ “paradise”—a place where the charms of her husband fall away to reveal a troubled man and cruel slave owner. Ginny befriends the young slaves Cleome and Zinnia who work at the farm—until Linus’ attentions turn to them, and she finds herself torn between her husband and only companions. The events that follow Linus’ death change all three women for life. Haunting, chilling, and suspenseful, Kind One is a powerful tale of redemption and human endurance in antebellum America. Laird Hunt is the author of several works of fiction and a finalist for the 2010 PEN Center USA Award in Fiction. Currently on the faculty of the University of Denver’s creative writing program, he and his wife, the poet Eleni Sikelianos, live in Boulder, Colorado, with their daughter, Eva Grace.

“Sam Savage [creates] some of the most original, unforgettable characters in contemporary fiction. . . . Readers are left with a voice so strong that Savage is able to derive significance from these events by sheer literary force.” —Kevin Larimer, Poets & Writers “Savage’s skill is in creating complex first-person characters using nothing but their own voice.”—Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times “[Savage] creates one of the most intriguing stories—and one of the most vivid characters—that this reader has encountered this year.”—The Writer Sam Savage’s most intimate, tender novel yet follows Harold Nivenson, a decrepit, aging man who was once a painter and arts patron. The death of Peter Meinenger, his friend turned romantic and intellectual rival, prompts him to ruminate on his own career as a minor artist and collector and make sense of a lifetime of gnawing doubt. Over time, his bitterness toward his family, his gentrifying neighborhood, and the decline of intelligent artistic discourse gives way to a kind of peace within himself, as he emerges from the shadow of the past and finds a reason to live, every day, in “the now.” Sam Savage is the best-selling author of Firmin: Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife, The Cry of the Sloth, and Glass. A native of South Carolina, Savage holds a PhD in philosophy from Yale University. He resides in Madison, Wisconsin.
A disillusioned artist looks for meaning in the wreckage of his life, and finds it in unexpected places.

“[These] accumulated poems [are] a smoldering tragedy, a heady descent, songs from a pit where what glints may be gems or the moon off snake scales.” —Douglas Kearney Sun Yung Shin’s poems animate the elements of the epic poem and Korean history across a dystopian dreamscape of fairy tale and folklore. Filled with pithy observations and striking lyrics, this collection explores alienation, moral isolation, and nationhood. Sun Yung Shin is the author of Skirt Full of Black, which won the 2008 Asian American Literary Award for poetry, and the children’s book Cooper’s Lesson, and is the co-editor of Outsiders Within: Writing on Transracial Adoption.

Raymond McDaniel
“McDaniel’s language trains every particle of your attention on the surface and what stirs beneath.”—C.D. Wright Inspired by the comic series The Legion of Super-Heroes, Raymond McDaniel’s poems morph superheroes into religious and mythological narratives. Using a range of traditional forms—versets, kennings, and sonnets—his poems consider the history of how we look at the future and take on an almost Talmudic complexity. Raymond McDaniel is the author of Saltwater Empire and Murder (a violet), a National Poetry Series selection. Born in Florida, McDaniel now lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, teaches at the University of Michigan, and writes for The Constant Critic.

Copper Canyon Press Selected Translations
Edited and translated by W.S. Merwin
“Mr. Merwin is an undisputed master.”—The New York Times “Merwin writes that the act of translation is ‘plainly impossible and nevertheless indispensable.’ We can be grateful that he feels compelled to master the impossible. . . . And that gift alone is priceless.”—The Wichita Eagle Selected Translations is the lifework from one of America’s greatest poets and translators. Dedicated to the art of translation since his undergraduate years at Princeton, Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin achieved an unmatched oeuvre of translated poems from every corner of the earth, from dozens of languages. This massive achievement is an essential volume for every library, public and private. From “In Praise of Darkness”: Translated from the Spanish of Jorge Luis Borges Old age (as others refer to it) can be the season of our good fortune. The animal has died, all but the dying. What remains is the man and his spirit. I live among vague luminous shapes that have not yet become darkness . . . W.S. Merwin was US Poet Laureate from 2010–2011. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry twice, most recently for The Shadow of Sirius (Copper Canyon Press, 2009), and the National Book Award for Migration: New and Selected Poems (Copper Canyon Press, 2005). Author and translator of over fifty books, Merwin lives in Hawaii and France.
Selected Translations is the crowning achievement for one of the world’s greatest and most prolific translators of poetry. Absolutely essential.

Copper Canyon Press Fall Higher
Dean Young
“Young has always stood out for his sharp humor, boundless poetic energy, and sheer readability. If adventurous poetry can sometimes feel like a tenuous tightrope walk, Young’s poems feel more like zip lines.”—The Boston Globe Fall Higher is a major collection by one of America’s most inventive and entertaining writers. In this paperback release, Dean Young’s work contends with the challenges of love, wryly cataloging mistakes, deterioration, and broken vows. Young’s humor is as sharp as ever, and coupled with a vulnerability that renders Fall Higher his most intimate collection to date. “The True Apology Takes Years” The true apology takes years. Terrible dry eyes! The tree rings grow closer and closer together but the nail is swallowed. Great heaps of rubble are moved up and down the shore. Finally a dance is performed to complete the forgiveness, stamping out small fires, the whole palladium decorated with thistles like the last twenty pages of a Victorian novel. Now that your hunger is gone you’re welcome to the banquet . . . Dean Young has published twelve books of poetry, including finalists for the Pulitzer Prize and Griffin Award. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the NEA, as well as an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He teaches at the University of Texas and lives in Austin, Texas.
“A long, breathless thank-you for life’s seemingly random jumble of beauty, strangeness, tenderness, and joy.”—Los Angeles Times

New and Selected Poems

Dean Young

“In Young’s work, the big essential questions—mortality, identity, the meaning of life—aren’t simply food for thought; they’re grounds for entertainment.” —The Toronto Star “Surrealism seldom seems as much like real life as in Young’s hilarious and cautionary poems.”—Booklist Bender gathers a generous selection of new work along with treasure from Dean Young’s twelve volumes. Strongly influenced by Surrealism, Dean Young’s poems flash with extravagant imagery, humorous speech, sly views of the quotidian, and the exposed nerves of heartache. As the American Academy of Arts and Letters raved, “Young’s poems are as entertaining as a three-ring circus and as imaginative as a canvas by Hieronymus Bosch. He is one of the most inventive and satisfying poets writing today.” From “Even Funnnier Looking Now”: If someone had asked me then, Do you suffer from the umbrage of dawn’s dark race horses, is your heart a prisoner of raindrops? Hell yes! I would have said or No way! Never would I have said, What could you possibly be talking about? I had just gotten to the twentieth century like a leftover girder from the Eiffel Tower. My Indian name was Pressure-Per-Square-Inch. I knew I was made of glass but I didn’t yet know what glass was made of: hot sand inside me like pee going all the wrong directions, probably into my heart which I knew was made of gold foil glued to dust . . .

Copper Canyon Press Letters to Borges
Stephen Kuusisto
“A talented writer judged against any standard.”—USA Today Best-selling memoirist Stephen Kuusisto uses the themes of travel, place, religion, music, art, and loneliness to explore the relationship between seeing, blindness, and being. In poems addressed to Jorge Luis Borges—another poet who lived with blindness—Kuusisto leverages seeing as negative capability, creating intimacy with deep imagination and uncommon perceptions. “Alone” Today I understood While drinking tea & hearing rain That the word for birth & the one for sin Come from a single root In Finnish — that tongue they Spoke when I was small. Synnty, untranslatable, Original sin nearly, But softer, Like water Carried a long way In a jar In May. Stephen Kuusisto is a poet, essayist, and memoirist. He is the author of two collections of poetry and two memoirs, including the best-selling Planet of the Blind (W. W. Norton & Company, 1998). A graduate from and former teacher at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, Kuusisto now teaches at Syracuse University.
“[Kuusisto] is a powerful writer with a musical ear for language and a gift for emotional candor.”—The New York Times Also Available

Copper Canyon Press Our Andromeda
Brenda Shaughnessy
“A heady, infectious celebration.”—The New Yorker “Shaughnessy’s voice is smart, sexy, self-aware, hip . . . consistently wry, and ever savvy.”—Harvard Review Brenda Shaughnessy’s heartrending third collection explores dark subjects— trauma, childbirth, loss of faith—and stark questions: What is the use of pain and grief? Is there another dimension in which our suffering might be transformed? Can we change ourselves? Yearning for new gods, new worlds, and new rules, she imagines a parallel existence in the galaxy of Andromeda. From “Our Andromeda”: Oh, maybe, Cal, we are home, if God will let us live here, with Andromeda inside us, doesn’t it seem we belong? Now and then, will you help me belong here, in this place where you became my child, and I your mother out of some instant of mystery of crash and matter . . . Brenda Shaughnessy earned degrees from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Columbia University. She is the author of Human Dark with Sugar (Copper Canyon Press, 2008), winner of the James Laughlin Award and Interior with Sudden Joy (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1999). She has taught creative writing at Princeton, New York University, and The New School, and currently teaches at Rutgers University. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Copper Canyon Press Sailing through Cassiopeia
Dan Gerber
“Gerber has a gentle touch and an unaffected, articulate voice that can be smart, funny, wise—sometimes all at the same time.”—Library Journal “The thing itself carries the weight of [Gerber’s] poems, which recall the deep imagery of Vallejo, Neruda, and Wright.”—Rain Taxi Dan Gerber’s mastery of layered imagery and crystalline vision marry European Romanticism with American Zen. These meditative poems engage the natural landscape of California’s oak savannas and memories of childhood, while calling upon an array of literary progenitors—from Robinson Jeffers and Rainer Maria Rilke to the classics of the Chinese canon—exploring what it means to be linguistically alive in an animal world. As ForeWord magazine wrote, “Dan Gerber’s poems are quick, graceful, alert to their surroundings, and rarely wasting a motion.” “The Word is the Picture of Things” Looking down at the lights of Earth, its constellations of lives, however unaware, signal back to the watching galaxies that have their seeing inside us. I praised flight and got stuck. I praised gravity and got lost. Along the way my life decays, and ripens . . . Dan Gerber is the author of seven collections of poetry, three novels, a book of short stories, and two books of nonfiction. A former racecar driver, he has traveled extensively as a journalist, particularly in Africa. His books have earned a Michigan Author Award and the Mark Twain Award. He lives in Santa Ynez, California.

Copper Canyon Press Charms Against Lightning
James Arthur

“That feeling of becoming a new person in a different place, even if it’s an illusion, is intoxicating to me, and always has been. I love writing about places, but only places where I don’t belong.”—James Arthur Awakening is the theme of this fiery debut about the “ghost world” of shadows and personae. A sense of history, politics, and place is an integrated and integral part of the whole, alive with stirring accounts of travel, intimate moments of solitude, and encounters with the ineffable. Romantic in spirit and contemporary in outlook, James Arthur writes exciting, rhythmical, elastic poems. “Charms against Lightning” Against meningitis and poisoned milk, flash floods and heartwreck, against daydreams Against losing your fingers, drinking detergent, earthquakes, baldness, divorce, against falling in love with a child Against lupus and lawsuits, lying stranded between nations, against secrets and frostbite, the burring of trains that never arrive Against songlessness, your mother’s depression, the death of the cedars, Siberian crane Against these talismans against lightning; the shutters swing, and clack their yellow teeth; the deep sky welters and the windows quiver James Arthur’s poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, and Narrative. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, and raised in Toronto, Ontario, he earned degrees from the University of Toronto, the University of New Brunswick, and the University of Washington. He is a recent recipient of the Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University and lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
James Arthur is among the most intriguing young poets writing today— a world traveler who composes poems entirely in his head.

Collected and New Poems

Tom Hennen
Introduction by Jim Harrison
“As with Ted Kooser, Tom Hennen is a genius of the common touch. . . . They are amazingly modest men who early accepted poetry as a calling in ancient terms and never let up despite being ignored early on. They return to the readers a thousandfold for their attentions.”—Jim Harrison, from the introduction “One of the most charming things about Tom Hennen’s poems is his strange ability to bring immense amounts of space, often uninhabited space, into his mind and so into the whole poem.”—Robert Bly Tom Hennen gives voice to the prairie and to rural communities, celebrating— with sadness, praise, and astute observations—the land, weather, and inhabitants. In short lyrics and prose poems, he reveals the detailed strangeness of ordinary things. Gathered from six chapbooks that were regionally distributed, this volume is Hennen’s long-overdue introduction to a national audience. Includes an introduction by Jim Harrison. “In Falling Snow at a Farm Auction”

Copper Canyon Press Greenhouses, Lighthouses
Tung-Hui Hu
“Perplexity and wonder are integral parts of Tung-Hui Hu’s poetry, which is as elegant as it is surprising.”—Rain Taxi “This fresh and unexpected poet extends the lyric into the social space without losing any of song’s intensity or mystery.”—Mark Doty “Tung-Hui Hu works magic on the page.”—Linda Gregerson Weaving between the personal and cosmic I, Tung-Hui Hu’s lyrics seek the “greenhouse”—a place of saturation, growth—as a poetic space to cultivate new modes through which our common language can once again illuminate and guide—“lighthouse.” With minimalism and control, Greenhouses, Lighthouses draws subtly from photography, cinematography, and history to create haunting and memorable connections. From “A Gust of Wind”: There is so much he wants to ask his strange new wife: how many lovers she has had, American or Provolone, and why sometimes, listening to her, he can hear the sound of a radiator breathing steam in a cold room. But it feels ridiculous to doubt her, so he finds a patch of grass in the open field and speaks to it, bending down and burring his words through the blades . . . Tung-Hui Hu, author of three books of poetry, earned his MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan and a PhD in film from University of California Berkeley. He teaches at the University of Michigan and lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
A poetic and provocative gesture toward cinematography, Tung-Hui Hu presents the ungraspable among memory, film, and history’s tantalizing ephemera. Also Available

Copper Canyon Press A Larger Country
Tomás Q. Morín
Introduction by Tom Sleigh
“Tomás Morín’s poems are as infectious and spooky and darkly humorous as the Brothers Grimm, as shapely and colloquial and eloquent as John Donne, and as skeptical and addicted to history-as-fable as Zbigniew Herbert.” —Tom Sleigh, from the introduction “An energetic and moving book of fantasias and elegies.”—Edward Hirsch Selected from over one thousand manuscripts for the APR/Honickman First Book Prize, Tomás Q. Morín’s debut is rich with the mastery of Morín’s lush storytelling. From war-torn images of Eastern Europe in the mid-1900s to modern-day glimpses of the American southwest, these poems are bold and brightly imagined. From “Castrato”: What do you call a gifted soprano with no balls who is too ugly to play the heroine, is never tall enough for the role of the hero? Wait a quarter century and you can fast forward past the floggings, the endless sermons, the giggles under alders with curious girls, busted noses, carped sisters with chubby boys, the innumerable nights of sleeplessness. Better to skip all this unpleasantness and descend the last rise toward the coast where you can stroll the docks . . . Tomás Q. Morín was born in Texas and educated at Texas State University and Johns Hopkins University. He lives in San Marcos, Texas, and teaches at Texas State University.
In this exhilarating APR/Honickman First Book Prize–winning debut, Tomás Q. Morín interacts intimately with history and story to craft complex and fantastical portraits.

Mexico at War

David Rochkind
Over the past six years Mexico has been consumed by a brutal conflict—the battle against the drug cartels has escalated, more than thirty five thousand people have been killed, and kidnappings have skyrocketed. The narrative of Mexico’s conflict is often reduced to the body count on the border, but the offensive against the cartels has caused an eruption of violence that is not isolated to one region. David Rochkind explores the stress and tension left in the wake of such violence and illustrates how the conflict impacts, and handicaps, Mexico’s future.

Billy Monk worked as a bouncer in the notorious Catacombs club in the dock area of Cape Town during the 1960s. He captures the raw energy of the club, its decadence and tragedy, its humanity and joy. The internationally acclaimed photographer David Goldblatt notes: “Monk’s non-judgmental, even cool-eyed awareness of the photographic possibilities of the bizarre pervades the work, and yet this awareness is never denigratingly exploitative. There is a strong empathetic spirit throughout.” First exhibited in 1982, it is now receiving significant media attention.

Greek Memories
Compton Mackenzie

Compton Mackenzie was a celebrated writer at the start of the Great War. He was soon recruited by British Secret Services, becoming “our man in Greece.” Later, he broke the rules by writing memoirs that included secret documents naming serving officers and exposing agents’ cover. Mackenzie was prosecuted and Greek Memories was banned. Now, for the first time, here is Mackenzie’s memoir as it should have been seen—a remarkable document of wartime espionage. Compton Mackenzie (1883–1972) was the author of over ninety books including Whisky Galore. During the First World War he ran the Aegean Intelligence component of what later became MI6.

Dialogue Under Every Leaf
How Britain Played the Greater Game from Afghanistan to Africa

William Beaver

“Anywhere in the world, where a leaf moves, underneath you will find an Englishman.”—Pharsi proverb Under Every Leaf tells the astonishing true story of the Britain’s first spies, and relays for the first time a dazzling adventure story set in the darkest heart of the Empire. We know more about the twentieth-century history of Britain’s secret intelligence services than ever before, but next to nothing about their Victorian antecedents. This book fills that gap, telling the story of the Intelligence Division of the War Office from 1856 to 1909—when MI6 was founded—and the hidden role that the Intelligence Division played in acquiring Britain’s vast empire without a major European or Asian war. In examining its influence in the formation of imperial policy-making and execution, Under Every Leaf is also a rollicking good read, shedding new light on the reality behind the partition of Africa, the Great Game in Asia, brains over brawn, espionage, adventure, and dedicated wholehearted commitment, sacrifice, and service to the Imperial ideal. Under Every Leaf is a major work of imperial history. William Beaver was born in Colorado and, after fighting in Korea, went to the University of Oxford in England on a US Army scholarship. He is a historian and officiating chaplain to the British Army.

Dialogue 100 Ways to Win an Election
Mark Pack and Edward Maxfield

This book is a “how to” guide for winning an election. It is divided into one hundred short standalone easy-to-digest chapters, expounding the universal principles of political campaigning. Each one gives advice on how to tackle a particular aspect of campaigning, and the book is designed to be dipped in and out of as required. However, this book is not aimed at candidates from one particular party, nor in one particular political system. Using examples from around the world, it is intended to be useful to citizens who decide to run for office without the backing of a political party as well as those who choose the party route. The book is addressed to the candidate but it will be useful to campaign managers and others involved in the campaign too. 100 Ways to Win an Election is a useful guide to what is one of the most noble career choices to make—to put your name in the public frame, ready of ridicule, disaster, and derision, but in search of making your contribution to making our world a better place to live. Mark Pack and Edward Maxfield have worked as campaign staff in the United Kingdom, Spain, Australia, and Canada, and have worked extensively with US campaigners and consultants; here they draw on their and others’ experiences in winning (and losing) campaigns around the world.

Dzanc Books Stray Decorum
George Singleton

My dog Tapeworm Johnson needed legitimate veterinary attention. It had been two years since she received annual shots. I read somewhere that an older dog can overdose on all these vaccinations, and I have found—I share this information with every dog owner I meet—that if you keep your pet away from rabid foxes, raccoons, skunks, bats, and people whose eyes rotate crazy in their sockets, then the chances of your own dog foaming at the mouth diminishes drastically. I also believe that dogs don’t need microchips imbedded beneath their shoulder blades if you keep the dog leashed or in the house, or with the truck windows rolled up when you drive around showing the dog farm animals living in pastures. I brought this up to Dr. Page one time, back four years earlier when Tapeworm Johnson was somewhere between eight and nine. Tapeworm showed up at my door one morning, her ribs as visible as anything you’d order down at Clem and Lyda’s Barbecue Shack off Scenic Highway 11, her paw pads split open from, I assumed, days traveling from wherever her conscienceless owner dropped her off. Eleven stories, all previously published in journals like The Atlantic, Oxford American, and The Georgia Review, in which George Singleton brings small-town South Carolina alive. Using everyday situations like a dog needing its annual vaccination and buckets of humorous observations, Singleton pokes and prods his readers into realizing we’re all simply restless for a pat on the head.
George Singleton writes about the South as nobody else does— bringing humor and vision to his “regular people getting by.”

Dzanc Books The Maggot People
Henning Koch

“Henning Koch is a writer who gets your attention and keeps it. His stories are written in language so beautiful that the reader finds himself reading aloud to hear it.”—Irene Zion The Maggot People are just that—people that have had maggots take over their bodies, working in unison to allow the bodies to continue to function and appear human. Reminiscent of Frank Herbert’s Hellstrom’s Hive, Henning Koch looks at religion as much as he does politics and the state of living in today’s world.

The Bastard Pleasure
Seán McGrady

“McGrady scrapes away at the surface truths that so many people so comfortably hide behind in order to justify their lifetimes of action and inaction, and gets at, if not definitive answers, definitive questions, that, once asked, cannot be ignored.”—Louisiana State University Book Review The Bastard Pleasure is a dark novel. It concerns the destruction of identity, and the brutal way in which it is reclaimed—more plainly it is about terrorism, in all its mundane and incomprehensible forms, and self-determination.

Dzanc Books A Question Mark Above the Sun
Documents on the Mystery Surrounding a Famous Poem “By” Frank O’Hara Expanded Second Edition

Kent Johnson
Preface by Eric Lorberer Foreword by David Koepsell Afterwords by Jeremy Noel-Tod and Joshua Kotin

“At the end of last year, an extraordinary work of detective criticism briefly appeared, despite legal threats. Kent Johnson’s A Question Mark Above the Sun (Punch Press) movingly speculates that Kenneth Koch forged one of Frank O’Hara’s greatest poems as a posthumous tribute to his friend. A noir-ish middle also recounts some very funny run-ins with the English avant-garde. Shame on the poets who forced its redaction and suppression.”—Jeremy Noel-Tod, The Times Literary Supplement, including a previous edition of A Question Mark Above the Sun as one of its 2011 Books of the Year What you have in your hands is a kind of thought-experiment. It proffers the idea that a radical, secret gesture of poetic mourning and love was carried out by Kenneth Koch in memory of his close friend Frank O’Hara. I present the hypothesis as my own very personal expression of homage for the two great poets. The proposal I set forward here, nevertheless, is likely to make some readers annoyed, perhaps even indignant. Some already are. A few fellow writers, even, have worked hard through legal courses to block this book’s publication. The forced redaction of key quotations herein (replaced by paraphrase) is one result of their efforts. In this self-described “thought experiment”—part fiction, part literary detective work, and always daring—Kent Johnson proposes a stunning rewrite of literary history. Suppressed upon initial release, this is a one-of-a-kind book by one of our most provocative contemporary authors. Kent Johnson is the author, translator, or editor of over thirty books of poetry and criticism, including Beneath a Single Moon: Buddhism in Contemporary American Poetry (Shambhala Publications, 1991), Doubled Flowering: From the Notebooks of Araki Yasusada (Roof Books, 1998), and his most recent collection of poems, Homage to the Last Avante-Garde (Shearsman Books, 2008). Best known for his radical ideas about authorship, scholarship, and experimentation, it was with his translations of Hiroshima survivor poet Araki Yasusada that Johnson became both celebrated and castigated. Only after Yasusada’s poems were published in American Poetry Review did readers learn there was no Yasusada, and that Johnson was not a translator on this project, but the author. Johnson is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship in Translation. He lives in Illinois, where he is a faculty member in English and Spanish at Highland Community College.
Was a beloved Frank O’Hara poem written by Kenneth Koch? Kent Johnson guarantees . . . you’ll never see poetry the same again.

Dzanc Books The House Enters the Street
Gretchen E. Henderson

“The House Enters the Street is beautifully written, confident, and complex. I was appreciative of its language and intelligence, mindfulness and scope.” —Rikki Ducornet “A demanding and beautiful book, which tracks an exacting landscape with breathtaking inventiveness.”—Mary Gordon “A startling and lovely configuration of stories, endlessly echoing and reverberating, haunted and haunting. Gretchen E. Henderson creates a sublime and mysterious music all her own.”—Carole Maso It was all about the fruits of labors, not only on land: at sea. Faar’s life began at sea. Waves rolled outside his window, where he watched watery horizons. His father had disappeared on a voyage to terra incognita, where horned narwhales swam under ice, where profit lulled into frozen floes. The young Faar began to dream of cloud lagoons, bellied sails, and wind. The wayfaring trait had been inherited. He decided to wander. Cousins on the other side of the world sent him a letter to marry their eldest daughter: S-v-a-n H-a-r-d-t. I-o-w-a, they wrote, without mentioning the distance between bordering seas. Faar assumed oceans existed near their home. He was young, then. This beautiful novel is simultaneously a love letter to the arts and a complex interweaving of characters, stories, and landscapes. Scandinavian immigrants in Iowa migrate towards war. A photographer in Arkansas returns to California to repair her family after a devastating fire. Stories unfold, modulating and resonating. This intricate, moving book reminds us of the art a novel can be. Gretchen E. Henderson is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Writing and Humanistic Studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Working at the intersection of literature, art history, museum studies, disability studies, and music, her creative and critical work explores aesthetics of deformity, museology as narrative strategy, poetics of embodiment, and literary appropriations of music. Her writing has appeared in a number of journals and anthologies, including The Kenyon Review, The Iowa Review, The Sourthern Review, and The &NOW Awards: The Best Innovative Writing. Her first novel Galerie de Difformité was awarded the 2011 Madeleine P. Plonskar Emerging Writer’s Prize from &NOW Books. Other works include a critical study of literary appropriations of music, On Marvellous Things Heard (Green Lantern Press), and a poetry chapbook engaging cartographic history, Wreckage: By Land & By Sea (Dancing Girl Press). At MIT, she is working on Ugliness: A Cultural History while continuing the collaborative deformation of her Galerie de Difformité. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
From modern art to medieval music, Gretchen E. Henderson’s exuberantly innovative and moving second novel interweaves stories, characters, and physical and emotional terrains.

Dzanc Books The Aversive Clause
B.C. Edwards

“[B.C. Edwards] is a writer possessed of a quicksilver anarchic imagination and I recommend his fiction highly to all and sundry.”—Patrick McGrath From “My Recipe for the Best Tuna Salad in the World”: Malcolm, I’ve finished clearing out the apartment, you boy-hungry mongoloid. The last of your things are in the vestibule. I’d come pick them up soon, as I’m sure you’re aware, the front door won’t shut completely and the glass has been broken in and so the rain is doing a number on that collection of forty-fives you inherited from your father but never got around to playing a single one of. Meanwhile, as requested, here is that recipe for tuna salad that you’ve enjoyed so much over all of these apparently bitter years. Every story in The Aversive Clause has its own unique world: the quiet moments of a couple’s destruction as one inexorably turns into a monster, a girl trapped in a tree at the end of the world, acrobats hired to tumble at an oil tycoon’s birthday, an entire city come to life to terrorize a dwarf. B.C. Edwards is the author of the forthcoming novella Knucklebone and is the prose and audio editor at Pax Americana. He received his MFA from The New School. He is a regular contributor to BOMBlog, FAQNP, and the Brooklyn Review. His most recent work can be found in Red Line Blues, LyreLyre, Sink Review, FOOD I CORP, as well as Hobart, which nominated him for a 2012 Pushcart Prize. His short story “Illfit” is being adapted into a piece by the Royal Ballet of Flanders. He is also a Literary Death Match champion and has the medal to prove it. His forthcoming short story collection The Aversive Clause won the 2011 Hudson Prize.

Dzanc Books Placebo Junkies Conspiring With The Half Asleep
Bruce Cohen
“These are poems of unyielding, good-of-heart sensibility, but always at the edge of where the world is hanging on. The words that tell these lives gather themselves at the far reaches of the experiences they reveal, and the speaker is often the unelected rudder in a world that otherwise could—and does—turn so easily upside down. ‘Maybe love is just being very polite,’ asserts the selfeffacing narrator. These poems and this narrator quietly show that it is much more, but that we must indeed work at it heroically every moment. These poems help us to understand why.”—Alberto Rios Bruce Cohen was born in the Bronx, New York, and earned both a BA and MFA from the University of Arizona. He is the director of the counseling program for Intercollegiate Athletes at the University of Connecticut. His poems have appeared in various literary publications including AGNI, The Georgia Review, Harvard Review, Indiana Review, The Ohio Review, Ploughshares, Poetry, Poetry East, Prairie Schooner, TriQuarterly, and Quarterly West. A recipient of an individual artist grant from the Connecticut Commission on the Culture and Tourism, he lives in Coventry, Connecticut, with his wife and three sons.

O Holy Insurgency
Mary Biddinger
“With equal parts wit and wisdom, Mary Biddinger’s O Holy Insurgency does what all good poetry does: she entertains while demonstrating both social and personal awareness; she rouses, comforts, and frightens the reader (often in the same poem) in the best way possible. Sometimes surreal, always poignant, Biddinger’s lyricism transcends the whitewash of contemporary verse and gives us something both familiar and new.”—Michael Meyerhofer Mary Biddinger is the author of Prairie Fever (Steel Toe Books, 2007). Her poetry has recently appeared or is forthcoming in 32 Poems, The Collagist, Copper Nickel, diode, Gulf Coast, The Laurel Review, The North American Review, Passages North, Third Coast, and many other journals. She is the editor of the Akron Series in Poetry, co-editor-in-chief of Barn Owl Review, and director of the Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing (NEOMFA).

Enigma Books Islam and the West
Wars of the Gods. The Geopolitics of Faith

Ardavan Amir-Aslani

The Muslim world had long been dormant and was therefore almost ignored by the west. Since 9/11 there is a new awareness seeking multiple explanations of those events often in a distorted and simplified manner. Is there such a thing as the “clash of civilizations”? Or is the turmoil in the Muslim world rooted in a set of causes that are based on religious belief that remain deeply misunderstood? This overview of the state of the countries where Islam is the dominant faith offers new insights into the Arab Spring and the challenge of Iran. Taking on such historians as Samuel Huntington and Francis Fukuyama, Ardavan Amir-Aslani, an attorney and historian of Iranian descent living in Paris, argues persuasively for a different analysis and a fresh approach to what has become one of the major issues of the twenty-first century. How does religious faith intersect with geopolitics in the post Cold War period? America, Russia, and Israel are all playing major roles amid the turmoil of the region but the great originality of this book is to show the complexity and sometimes baffling actions and reactions within Muslim societies and countries. Across Central Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa, from Pakistan to Morocco, the world of Islam remains in religious and geopolitical ferment. Amir-Aslani’s authoritative voice suggests that western values may not apply neatly into the picture as many leaders would prefer. He offers a realistic and true understanding of this new reality.
Iran and all Muslim countries are in the news. This book offers insight into issues facing America today.

Enigma Books Mussolini’s Spies
Italian Military Espionage, 1940–1943

Giuseppe Conti
Based on recently available archives this is the first in-depth scholarly study of Italian military espionage during World War II. Italy’s ultimate demise in the course of the war becomes clear in reading this book that is filled with previously unknown data and shows how Italian dictator Benito Mussolini managed and mismanaged Italy’s war machine. In spite of the erratic directives that were periodically handed down from the top, Italian military intelligence was able to produce valuable information that was not taken into account or misinterpreted by those in charge. The espionage and counterespionage sections that had been so effective during the pre-war period suddenly fell back in the contest with Italy’s enemies. How did this happen and what were the decisions that led to fascist Italy’s defeat are the questions answered in this work that fills a gap in the history of the Second World War and its vital military intelligence component.

Spy Lost
Caught Between the KGB and the FBI

Kaarlo Tuomi
Introduction by John E. Haynes
In this memoir of espionage and deceit a Finnish American who had returned to the Soviet Union in 1933 tells of his recruitment by the KGB after service in World War II. Because Kaarlo Tuomi was born in Michigan he had the most prized possession Soviet espionage could ask for: a legitimate American passport and native fluency in English. Tuomi was trained and sent back to the United States in the late 1950s as a “sleeper” but he was quickly identified and “turned” by the FBI that was soon feeding him doctored intelligence to transmit to his KGB bosses. This is an amazing double agent story told by the protagonist in his own words. The book has an introduction by historian John E. Haynes, co-author, with Harvey Klehr, of Spies, and many other books on espionage.

SS General Karl Wolff Second Edition

Jochen von Lang
Deeply involved in the Holocaust as Heinrich Himmler’s deputy for administration, Karl Wolff personally arranged for the transportation of three hundred thousand Jews from Poland to the Treblinka death camp in 1943. He went to trial in Germany and received a short prison sentence in 1964. But Wolff, even more than Reinhard Heydrich, could claim to enjoy Adolf Hitler’s complete confidence. He was appointed SS police chief in northern Italy in 1943–1945 and ordered by the Führer himself to kidnap the Pope and the cardinals and take them to Germany. Wolff managed to talk Hitler out of the wild scheme and escaped hanging at Nuremberg by negotiating the surrender of the German armies in Italy with Allen Dulles in Switzerland.

Stalin’s Man in Canada
Fred Rose and Soviet Espionage

David Levy
Fred Rose was a labor organizer, left wing politician, Soviet agent, and atomic spy. He was born in Lublin, Poland, and lived in Montreal where he joined the Young Communist League. Rose quickly became a member of Gaik Ovakimyan’s North American NKVD network where he worked with Jacob Golos, Elizabeth Bentley’s employer, providing Canadian passports for Soviet agents. In 1942 he switched to the GRU, Soviet military intelligence. Rose was elected to the federal Canadian parliament from a working-class district in Montreal. He was re-elected in 1945. In September 1945 Soviet Embassy GRU clerk Igor Gouzenko defected, revealing an elaborate espionage operation to acquire American atomic research. Fred Rose was a major player in the scheme. Rose was found guilty of conspiring to turn over information about the explosive RDX to GRU chief Colonel Nicolai Zabotin, and was sentenced to a six-year prison term. He returned to his native Poland in 1953 after his release from prison and died in Warsaw in 1983. David Levy lives in Montreal, Quebec.

Etruscan Press White Vespa
Kevin Oderman

Anne shook herself then poured a little water from a plastic bottle onto her fingers and slapped it on her cheeks. “Wake up!” A few heads turned toward her and she walked stiffly over to the rail. She’d been sitting alone on a bench on the shady side of the boat for an hour, but no one had approached her, and no one approached her as she stood shading her eyes, looking down at the glassy water. She didn’t mind. She preferred to be left alone. Kevin Oderman’s second novel presents readers with a character of complexity and depth. Myles Toomey is an American ex-patriot who hopes to quell his grief for a long lost son in the stillness of his photographs of the Dodecanese Islands. But friendship and then love for a woman wounded in her own family-born grief propels him toward life again, where stillness is set into motion and identity might be recovered, against odds, in a foreign place. Out of his travel experiences Kevin Oderman wrote his first novel, Going, and currently his literary nonfiction about travel is being gathered into a volume, Cannot Stay. Twice he has lived abroad as a Fulbright Fellow and has taught modern American poetry as a senior lecturer at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece, and at Punjab University in Lahore, Pakistan. He is a professor of English at West Virginia University.
Does art clarify or obscure love? With a photographic eye, Kevin Oderman probes family secrets on an exotic island.

“No Hurry is a gorgeous book: the world of flesh, mind, and heart spoken through air and silk.”—George Szirtes The pages of No Hurry sing with poems for the aging in body but youthful in spirit, continuing to ask most meaningful questions as they head “downhill.” From my birth mother I took my melancholy disposition and from my father the ability to get through life with a bullet in one arm. Michael Blumenthal is an eminent American writer with seven previously published books of poetry. He has received worldwide recognition, and currently teaches at West Virginia University.

What We Ask Of Flesh
Remica L. Bingham

“What We Ask of Flesh, like the flesh itself, is full of honey and fire. It’s impossible not to feel called by these poems, summoned by their rich sound and vatic voice.”—Amy Gerstler Blending biblical characters into a deeply personal history, What We Ask of Flesh tells of women through time, their spirits borne through broken flesh, through wombs and memories. The body becomes instrument as words explore the mystical connection between what was and is.

Exterminating Angel Press Lily the Silent
The History of Arcadia

Tod Davies
Illustrated by Mike Madrid
“Look inside this world and find wonder.”—Kate Bernheimer, editor of My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me Lily leads a serene life in Arcadia until the forces of Megalopolis invade. Rescued from slavery by a prince of Megalopolis, Lily is sent to retrieve a very important key. Aided by her friends, her dog Rex, and even Death herself, Lily’s adventures take her from the Moons to the Bottom of the Sea, and finally back to Megalopolis, where she faces the decision of her life. Will she choose True Love and relinquish the key to those in Power or will she risk everything for who she is and return the key to Arcadia? Narrated by Lily’s daughter, Sophia the Wise, this is a story about a girl who learns to live by her own light and—no matter how reluctantly—become the queen her people need. Full of Arcadian legends, it is also a fairy tale within a fairy tale about a troubled world not unlike our own, as well as a beautifully illustrated sequel to Snotty Saves the Day, which critics and booksellers hailed as “Lewis Carroll with footnotes by Jonathan Swift,” while comparing it to authors whose work can be savored by readers of all ages: Susanna Clark, C.S. Lewis, George Orwell, and L. Frank Baum. Tod Davies lives with her husband and her two dogs in the alpine valley of Colestin, in Oregon, where she discovered the first Arcadian manuscript, and at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, in Boulder, Colorado. Mike Madrid, a native San Franciscan, is the author of The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines.

Exterminating Angel Press Park Songs
A Poem/Play

David Budbill
Photographs by R. C. Irwin
A “tale of the tribe” (Ezra Pound’s phrase for his own longer work), Park Songs is set during a single day in a down-and-out Midwestern city park where people from all walks of life gather. In this small green space amidst a great gray city, the park provides a refuge for its caretaker (and resident poet), street preachers, retirees, moms, hustlers, and teenagers. Interspersed with blues songs, the community speaks through poetic monologues and conversations, while the homeless provide the introductory chorus—and all of their voices become one great epic tale of comedy and tragedy. Full of unexpected humor, hard-won wisdom, righteous (but sometimes misplaced) anger, and sly tenderness, their stories show us how people learn to live with mistakes and make connections in an antisocial world. As the poem/play engages us in their pain and joy—and the goofy delight of being human—it makes a quietly soulful statement about acceptance and community in our lives.

Excerpt from Obama Karma: Their strategy was simple. Win Iowa, then New Hampshire. Game over. They would become unassailable. The Obama campaign spent a whole year in Iowa building their campaign and in the end they pulled off the surprise upset they had been dreaming of. In Iowa the Clinton juggernaut had been knocked off track in a way that no one could have predicted just a few weeks earlier. The few days between the Iowa and New Hampshire elections went by like a daze. They were all on a high, surrounded by an expectant media ready to declare the Clinton candidacy dead and the Obama team as the giant slayers. Then, like melting ice cream, their victory morphed into defeat in New Hampshire. All sorts of questions were swimming around in the Obama team’s minds. How could this have happened? In the closing hours every single uncommitted voter must have gone Clinton’s way. “I think we may not have made it,” David Axelrod told Obama. “We’re going to be a couple of points short.” “This thing is going to go on for a while isn’t it?” Obama said with a wry smile. Later that night, however, after some deeper pondering, Obama gave his wider verdict. “I actually think this is for the best,” he said. “Sure if we had won New Hampshire, we’d be in the driver’s seat. But I’d be like a comet streaking across the sky. White hot. And comets eventually burn up. Now people can see how I deal with adversity, whether we can bounce back . . . They want me to earn this. They don’t want it to be easy for someone like me and it probably shouldn’t be.” The candidate’s reaction blew his campaign team away. “This guy really has what it takes to be President,” campaign manager David Plouffe thought to himself. “There’s not a lot of people who would react like that.”

February Books Obama Karma
Lessons on Living Inspired by the 44th President

Russell Razzaque, PhD

President Barack Obama is one of the calmest, coolest, and most compelling political figures in modern times. Dealt a grueling first term of wars, recession, and bitter partisan attacks, he has remained even-tempered, levelheaded, and downright Zen. Obama’s appeal runs even deeper than the revolution his ethnicity represents. His rare combination of inner peace and outer passion, his mix of realism and idealism, are qualities that have made him an iconic figure around the globe. Extraordinary emotional intelligence is perhaps the prime quality that has drawn Barack Obama’s supporters to him through thick and thin. In Obama Karma, Russell Razzaque analyzes key moments in the life of our forty-fourth president that reveal his depth and self-awareness, especially when confronted with challenges. While temperament is largely inherited, emotional intelligence can be learned. Through simple exercises included in the book readers can learn to improve their own life skills and interpersonal relationships. Finally, Obama Karma helps make the case for the re-election of Barack Obama on the basis of his extraordinary leadership in a singular time in history. Russell Razzaque, PhD, has been a practicing psychiatrist for over fifteen years. His most recent book Human Being to Human Bomb was a psychological examination of suicide bombers. He is an attending psychiatrist across several mental health and addiction treatment centers in London. Razzaque has contributed to The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Guardian, The Telegraph, and The Independent.
President Barack Obama’s greatest strength, emotional intelligence, can be learned. This book will teach you how.

February Books Getting to Bartlett Street
Our 25-Year Quest to Level the Playing Field in Education

Joe Reich and Carol Reich
Foreword by Joel Klein
Getting to Bartlett Street is the inspiring story of Joe and Carol Reich—heroes in the education reform movement—how they built a school, changed the lives of many children, and helped redefine the system in the process. Joe and Carol Reich have spent the past three decades and a personal fortune to help underprivileged children access the same kind of high quality education that wealthier Americans enjoy. Yet few people even know who they are. In Getting to Bartlett Street, for the first time, Joe and Carol Reich tell the true story of how they started one of the first charter schools in the country in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Since the Reiches began their work, the charter movement has spread across the country like wildfire, offering children a way out of failing schools managed by byzantine bureaucracies through privately managed public schools accessible to all through a simple lottery. But when they first conceived of their school, Beginning With Children, no one had ever started an independent public school anywhere in the country. Getting to Bartlett Street is a tale that will astound and inspire supporters of education reform everywhere.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Kissing the Sword
My Prison Years in Iran

Shahrnush Parsipur
Translated by Sara Khalili
Shahrnush Parsipur was an important writer and television producer in her native Iran until 1979 when the Islamic Republic began imprisoning its citizens. Kissing the Sword captures the surreal experiences of serving time without being charged with a crime, and witnessing the systematic destruction of any and all opposition to fundamentalist power. It is a memoir filled with both horror and humor: nights blasted by the sounds of machine gun fire as hundreds of prisoners are summarily executed, and days spent debating prison officials on whether the Quran demands that women be covered. Parsipur, one of the great novelists of modern Iran, known for magic realism, tells a story here that is all too real. She mines her own painful memories to create an urgent call for one of the most basic of human rights: freedom of expression. Born in Iran in 1946, Shahrnush Parsipur began her career as a fiction writer and producer at Iranian National Television and Radio. She was imprisoned for nearly five years by the religious government without being formally charged. Shortly after her release, she published Women Without Men and was arrested and jailed again, this time for her frank and defiant portrayal of women’s sexuality. While still banned in Iran, the novel became an underground bestseller there, and has been translated into many languages around the world. Parsipur is also the author of Touba and the Meaning of Night, among many other books, and now lives in exile in northern California.

“Cristy C. Road is a bad ass. She has a list of published work that leaves me awed and inspired.”—Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day “Road’s writing has long brought to vivid life the experiences of a queeridentified Latina punk rocker.”—Bitch magazine At its core, Spit and Passion is about the transformative moment when music crashes into a stifling adolescent bedroom and saves you. Suddenly, you belong. At twelve years old, Cristy C. Road is struggling to balance tradition in a Cuban Catholic family with her newfound queer identity, and begins a chronic obsession with the punk band Green Day. In this stunning graphic biography, Road renders the clash between her rich inner world of fantasy and the numbing suburban conformity she is surrounded by. She finds solace in the closet—where she lets her deep excitement about punk rock foment, and finds in that angst and euphoria a path to self-acceptance.

The Politics of Producing Pleasure

Edited by Tristan Taormino, Celine Parreñas Shimizu, Constance Penley, and Mireille Miller-Young
The Feminist Porn Book brings together for the first time writings by feminists in the adult industry and research by feminist porn scholars. This book investigates not only how feminists understand pornography, but also how feminists do porn—that is, direct, act in, produce, and consume one of the world’s most lucrative and growing industries. With original contributions by Susie Bright, Candida Royalle, Betty Dodson, Nina Hartley, Buck Angel, and more, The Feminist Porn Book updates the debates of the porn wars of the 1980s, which sharply divided the women’s movement, and identifies pornography as a form of expression and labor in which women and other minorities produce power and pleasure. Tristan Taormino is an award-winning author, columnist, editor, sex educator, and feminist pornographer. She is the author of seven books including The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women and Opening Up. She runs the adult film production company Smart Ass Productions and is an exclusive director for Vivid Entertainment. Celine Parreñas Shimizu is an associate professor of film and performance studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Constance Penley is professor of film and media studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and founding editor of Camera Obscura.

In the fall of 1991, Anita Hill captured the country’s attention when she testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee describing sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas, who had been her boss and was about to ascend to the Supreme Court. We know what happened: she was challenged, disbelieved, and humiliated; he was given a life-long appointment to decide America’s judicial fate. What is less known is how many women and men were inspired because of Anita Hill’s bravery, how her testimony changed the feminist movement, and how she singlehandedly brought public awareness to the issue of sexual harassment. Thomas might have won his seat, but Anita Hill’s legacy mobilized the women’s movement and our need to demand more than the status quo. Twenty years later, this collection brings together three generations to witness, respond to, and analyze Hill’s impact and present insights in law; politics; the confluence of race, class, and gender; the persistent questioning of women’s credibility; and current cases of sexual harassment. With original contributions by Anita Hill, Melissa Harris-Perry, Catharine MacKinnon, Patricia J. Williams, Eve Ensler, Ai Jen Poo, Kimberly Crenshaw, Lynn Nottage, Gloria Steinem, Lani Guinier, Lisa Kron, Mary Oliver, Edwidge Danticat, Kevin Powell, and many others. Amy Richards is the author of Opting In, co-author of Manifesta, and co-founder of Soapbox, Inc.

Sarah Weddington

“As a husband and as a father of a daughter, I am moved by Sarah Weddington’s eloquent reminder of what Roe truly means—that our most private decisions can be made behind the closed doors of our homes, with our families, and in private conversations with our hearts.”—Bill Clinton “A milestone. . . . She recounts with clarity and fervor the remarkable story of how she, her husband and a few other lawyers, supported by a handful of doctors and pro-choice advocates, researched and prepared briefs invoking the ‘right of privacy’ defense as a main argument to challenge the Texas antiabortion law.”—Publishers Weekly On the fortieth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, women’s reproductive freedom is just as contested as it was before abortion was made legal. Adding a new chapter to her celebrated book about the story behind that great legal challenge, Sarah Weddington brings up-to-date the status of choice and constitutional law. Sarah Weddington is an attorney and lecturer from Austin, Texas. She became a key figure in the reproductive rights movement when at the age of twenty-seven she successfully argued Roe v. Wade, the landmark court case that gave American women the right to abortion. She has served in the Texas House of Representatives and was a White House advisor to President Jimmy Carter. Weddington is currently a professor of law and women’s studies and travels around the country lecturing on leadership and women’s issues.

Fence Books Book Beginning What and Ending Away
Clark Coolidge
Foreword by Tom Orange
“A modern-day Rosetta Stone, Book Beginning What and Ending Away bridges the wild conceptual experimentalism of the 1960s and the rigid, doctrine-driven personal politics of the 1970s and early 1980s Language poets, while illuminating the path toward a freeform, devastating ‘point perspective lyric’ that is Coolidge’s operative method today.”—Tom Orange Why the same cave? It is continuous. The weight exists, a drill, and it is well. One bridge is older than the stream. Of indebtedness great ground now possess changes. Crack cavity in the sung Hallelujah Chorus. I took a drink, still older than unequivocally slabby. My sac deposit lies life size. The well we have is little more than this sheet-iron. The making system drapes the writer’s contrast. At over five hundred pages of sustained, exhilarating prose, this work reconciles the relentless iconoclasm of the language poets with Clark Coolidge’s own deeply rooted theories of abstraction and musicality, yet remains astonishingly readable more than thirty years after Coolidge abandoned the project—planned to be more than one thousand pages—in 1980. An act of radical endurance, a resurrected classic. Author of more than twenty books of poetry, Clark Coolidge has occupied a singular place in American letters since the mid-1960s. An unparalleled influence on the wider avant-garde—the Language Poets, the second and third generation New York School, and whole movements of visual artists, musicians, and linguists, Coolidge is from Providence, Rhode Island. Since 1997 he has lived in Petaluma, California.
A missing masterpiece in twentieth-century experimental literature, Clark Coolidge’s legendary “Longprose” was written at a frenetic pace between 1973–1980.

“Clark Coolidge is a one-man avant-garde.”—Peter Gizzi Clark Coolidge’s embrace of the sonnet form is a gemlike amalgam of narrative urge, wacky name-dropping, and pure visuality. Coolidge’s legendary proliferation—as many as ten sonnets in a single day—marries the stunning variety of his intellect on the mountaintop of formal inquiry. “LIBRARY OF HAY” So slow death oft the onyx dolls each in its own lab colors rollicking encores who’s there? do you want your museum room infiltrated? only the singing parts terrible loss of air raid powder entanglements poled on kapok the last to be heard? this ploy of dolls irradiated heads and curls of coffin wood death is always plural here? stolid anyway someway still enters the frontway through the water door to Manikin Lake the throttles held down there you went to hair school against my wisdom thus the remnants spelled out there then coded there Clark Coolidge was born in Providence, Rhode Island. Though associated with the Language Poets, his work predates the movement and despite close contact with many of them he remains distinct from any movement, literary or political. The author of more than twenty books of verse and prose, he is also the editor of Philip Guston: Collected Writings, Lectures, and Conversations.
One of America’s most idiosyncratic and quixotic poets returns to form with this collection of relentless, hilarious, and visionary sonnets.

Fence Books Mellow Actions
Brandon Downing

Brandon Downing, whose Lake Antiquity beguilingly combined painstaking full-color collage with painstaking found poetry and painstaking visual bravado, returns with this collection of new poems, his fourth. You’ll be laughing about flotsam, you’ll be crying about jetsam. There is nothing but supernaturally canny vernacular to hold on to in these poems, but there is excessive cultural material to dream about. Wait for me, Raymond Carver! You piece of shoot! The girls are too solo, not herd things, Dirty butt, jelly-jar weed-heads, Tiny chiggers leaving huge welts, That is the world waits in the woods. Me, I can’t buy enough Giclee prints To cover the guile accreting on my walls! What was that all about btw, Those donut bushes and Sprite Ladders running up over the defensive Walls of our new youth clinic? WTF?

Brandon Downing is an artist and writer from the San Francisco Bay Area, now living in New York City. His collections include The Shirt Weapon, Dark Brandon, and Lake Antiquity.

Your Invitation to a Modest Breakfast
Hannah Gamble
“Like the favorite daughters of a Sufi master, these liberating poems love contradiction and whirling, and intimacy—their seriousness is droll, their humor warm and dark, their fables of selfhood are teasing and honest in marvelous and uncommon ways. They are truly delightful and robustly original—a poetic joy.”—Tony Hoagland Selected by Bernadette Mayer for the National Poetry Series, these poems engage the structures of family and intimacy, exposing the viscera of the everyday, all its frailties and familiarity rendered absurd and remade through language. Outside there’s a world where every love-scene begins with a man in a doorway; he walks over to the woman and says “Open your mouth.” Hannah Gamble has received fellowships from Rice University, The University of Houston, and The Edward F. Albee Foundation. She teaches literature and writing at Prairie State College and is the poet-in-residence at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.

Fence Books Eyelid Lick
Donald Dunbar

Eyelid Lick is borne out of individual psychedelic experience into a world of streaming communication. These loose, runny poems seek intimacy through testimonial. There’s the sensation of the lick, and the sensation of being licked, and if both people know each other enough both sides of the lick can be felt. Assam, Not hate, not no capability to find them cute, or charming, or things. Because there’s going to be a baby in the backyard. And because the lambs hang low in the trees.

I am so not fucking around. Like a name strangling its body, I’ll forget it, too. I’ll say one thing, and then completely forget it. I’ll remind you of something known to everyone: We could have gotten away with so much more. Donald Dunbar lives in Portland, Oregon, where he co-curates the reading series If Not For Kidnap and teaches poetry to future chefs at Oregon Culinary Institute.

Winner of the 2012 Fence Modern Poets Series, this book is charged with ecstatic yet gritty humor and hyperkinetic desire.

Fence Books Present Participle
Translated by Sarah Riggs and Ellen LeBlond-Schrader
In a dozen taut sequences, the book explores metaphorical and actual prisons and revolutions through references to political captivity, torture, and despotism as well as philosophical heroism through nuanced, striking, and heartfelt language. Fragmentation, affect, repetition, and riffs on proper names, places, dates, and facts construe a haunting verbal landscape for readers to navigate. Oscarine Bosquet was born in Paris in 1964, and is the author of Participe Présent (Le Bleu de Ciel, 2008) and Chromo (Éditions Fourbis, 1996). She teaches at the art school of Brest in Britanny, France. Sarah Riggs has published several other books of poetry, translation, and essays, and teaches at NYU Paris. Ellen LeBlond-Schrader teaches avant-garde movements in Paris and translates contemporary poetry as well as art criticism.

Oscarine Bosquet

A call to act in language, a radical way of listening, an absurd fashion that renders meaningful the ultra-serious.

Night and Day
Pierre Alferi
Translated by Kate Campbell
Each poem begins with an epigraph that distills a subject and then goes on to elaborate, extrapolate, complicate. Each poem reverses “communication”; pushes meaning from one image to the next, taking it apart, transferring it from line to line in a series of transformations that finally create an experience of the present. Pierre Alferi is the author of over fifteen novels and books of poetry as well as three volumes of philosophy/essay. He has worked extensively in the short ciné-poème form, and co-founded the influential Revue de littérature générale (1990–1996). His translations include works by John Donne, Meyer Shapiro, and Giorgio Agamben. Born in 1963, he graduated from the école Normale Supérieur, rue d’Ulm. He has taught at the ENSBA in Lyon, France, and currently at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France.

Feral House Transhumanism
A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas

Joseph P. Farrell, PhD, and Scott D. de Hart, PhD

The ultimate question is no longer “who am I” or “why am I here.” These questions were answered in the earliest civilizations by philosophers and priests. Today we live in an age of such rapid advances in technology and science that the ultimate question must be rephrased: what shall we be? This book investigates what may become of human civilization, who is setting the agenda for a trans-humanistic civilization, and why. The modern Victor Frankenstein holds a high political office, carries diplomatic immunity, and is most likely funded by the largest corporations worldwide. His method is ancient: alchemy. His fraternities are well known and their secrets are well kept, but his goal of times past and present is the same; he dares to become as god, genetically manipulating the seeds of the earth, the beasts on the fields, and to claim legal ownership over humanity by re-creating it in his own image. This is no fairy tale, science fiction, or conspiracy theory . . . it simply is! Transhumanism, a Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas by Joseph P. Farrell and Scott D. de Hart lifts the veil from the macabre transhumanistic monster being assembled and exposes the hidden history and agenda that has set humanity on a collision course for the apocalypse. Joseph P. Farrell, PhD, is the author of the best-selling Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men: The Surviving Elites of the Cosmic War and Their Hidden Agenda.
Exposes the hidden history and agenda that has set humanity on a collision course for the apocalypse.

Feral House You Will Die
The Burden of Modern Taboos

Robert Arthur

“A highly entertaining look at social lies and phobias, and the way the worst sort of laws are created and empowered. Unusual and fascinating.” —Mark Frauenfelder, Boing Boing Taboos, by definition, are off-limit topics. As a book that covers nasal mucus, excrement, sex, and drugs, You Will Die is inherently sensational, and author Robert Arthur takes advantage of that by packing its many fascinating pages with provocative information and illustrations, but You Will Die, beyond the surface, is an extraordinarily serious book.

Taboos are a burden on society. By protecting irrational views they hinder progress towards greater happiness.

Feral House Hipster Hitler
James Carr and Archana Kumar

In a competition of the most hated memes of modern times, “Hipster” has now caught up with “Hitler.” Artists James Carr and Archana Kumar thought, why not combine the two? After all, Hitler was indeed a hipster of his time, a failed artist in Vienna scrounging up extra dollars or kroner painting quick architecture scenes for the tourists. In their heavily trafficked website, “hipsterhitler.com,” these comic artists posit a new sort of history in which Hitler wears Silverlake-trendy glasses, thrift store sweaters, and outspoken T-shirts, and the reader begins to quickly understand the history of Hitler in a new and strangely engaging way. The Feral House book of Hipster Hitler includes a few dozen pages of comics heretofore unseen online.
Satirizes hipster culture and the exploits of the Third Reich using a combination of puns, parody, dark humor, and visual gags.

Feral House Several Ways to Die in Mexico City
An Autobiography of Death in Mexico City

Kurt Hollander

In the ’80s, when author/photographer Kurt Hollander lived in New York and published The Portable Lower East, life there was particularly rough, and cops often drove yellow cabs as a method to surprise and roust its residents. Before the decade ended, Hollander moved to the equally rough climes of Mexico City, making his living writing and photographing for The Guardian, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and many other publications. Hollander’s visual and textual extravaganza, Several Ways to Die in Mexico City, provides a perspective of this extraordinary city that could only have been caught by an observant outsider who lived in all its nooks and crannies for over two decades. Crammed with caustic but fair observations of the city’s history, food, cults, drugs, and buildings, Hollander proves that he can love a city and culture that also kills its inhabitants softly. The book contains dozens of extraordinary photographs. While living high in Mexico City, Kurt Hollander edited poliester, the renowned bilingual art magazine about the Americas. He also directed the feature film Carambola and wrote a successful series of children’s books. Grove Press published the Portable Lower East Side anthology in 1994.
Offers a perspective on Mexico City based on the hazard it poses to health and the reasons to embrace that.

Lately, creative individuals have been protesting against the corporate nature of things, often taking the initiative and setting up new independent ventures. Elephant looks at how it’s done.

Instead of just filling a book with new products, Goods takes design publishing a step further: iconic interior design products are analyzed and featured from sketch to realization. And that’s not all. This huge book also shows international reference projects where these products have been used successfully. Each product is featured on eight pages that tell its story step by step. Profiles of the manufacturer and their associated designers provide a first framework. Conceptual design sketches, studies, technical drawings, photography of the prototypes, and the manufacturing process—alongside a clear description—explain exactly how the product is designed and manufactured. Product photography showcases the end result, and a spread filled with photographs of various recently completed interiors that successfully feature the product complete the picture. Goods features ninety products which makes it quite a hefty book with eight hundred pages. All interior product ranges are included: from chairs to tables; from floor lamps to down lights; and from kitchens to bathrooms. The included brands are selected from all over the world and are the likes of Armstrong, Gaggenau, Hansgrohe, Herman Miller, Moooi, Vitra, and Zumtobel. Featured associated designers include Barber Osgerby, Jean-Marie Massaud, Patricia Urquiola, Porsche Design Studio, and Yves Behar. This book offers an exclusive peek into the world of both renowned brands and design studios. By explaining the design process, the manufacturing process, and the actual use of the product, Goods is valuable for anyone in the design industry, from interior designer to manufacturer, and from architect to product designer.

Fulcrum Publishing Tales of a River Rat
Adventures Along the Wild Mississippi

Kenny Salwey

The summer sun hung low over the wooded hills along the Mississippi. I pulled my old straw hat low over my eyes and dozed off. If you could have peered under the mud and the blood and the sweat on my face, you might have seen the corners of my mouth turn up, in the makings of a grin. In Tales of a River Rat, famed storyteller and self-described hermit Kenny Salwey informs and entertains readers as he weaves his life story on the Mississippi River. Salwey knows the river ecosystem with an intimacy unavailable to most. Here he shares his love of and knowledge about the mighty river in an accessible manner sure to appeal to all ages. Kenny Salwey is the last of a breed of men whose lifestyle has all but disappeared in this fast-paced, high-tech digital world. For thirty years, this weathered woodsman eked out a living on the Mississippi River, running a trapline, hiring out as a river guide, digging and selling roots and herbs, and eating the food he hunted and fished. Today, Salwey is a master storyteller, environmental educator, keynote speaker, nature writer, and advocate for the Upper Mississippi River.
Tales of history, wildlife, and the Mississippi River with the Last River Rat, Kenny Salwey.

Fulcrum Publishing A Ditch in Time
The City, the West, and Water

Patricia Nelson Limerick
with Jason Hanson
The history of water development . . . offers a particularly fine post for observing the astonishing and implausible workings of historical change and, in response, for cultivating an appropriate level of humility and modesty in our anticipations of our own unknowable future. Tracing the origins and growth of the Denver Water Department, this study of water and its unique role and history in the West, as well as in the nation, raises questions about the complex relationship among cities, suburbs, and rural areas, allowing us to consider this precious resource and its past, present, and future with both optimism and realism. Patricia Nelson Limerick is the faculty director and board chair of the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado, where she is also a professor of history and environmental studies. She currently serves as the vice president for the teaching division of the American Historical Association. Her most widely read book, The Legacy of Conquest, is in its twenty-fifth year of publication.

Indians of the Pacific Northwest
From the Coming of the White Man to the Present Day

Vine Deloria Jr.
Foreword by Billy Frank Jr. Afterword by Steve Pavlik
The Pacific Northwest was one of the most populated and prosperous regions for Native Americans before the coming of the white man. By the mid-1800s, measles and smallpox decimated the Indian population, and the remaining tribes were forced to give up their ancestral lands. Vine Deloria Jr., named one of the most influential religious thinkers in the world, tells the story of these tribes’ fight for survival, one that continues today. Billy Frank Jr. was the first recipient of Indian Country Today’s American Indian Visionary Award. Steve Pavlik is a professor of Native American studies at Northwest Indian College.

Gentle Path Press Cruise Control
Understanding Sex Addiction in Gay Men Second Edition

Robert Weiss
Foreword by Patrick Carnes, PhD
Sex is always part of Ed’s day, whether he’s masturbating during his morning shower, cruising the mall during lunch, or engaging in his post-workout gym ritual. He often spends whole weekends either searching for sex partners or having sex. In his rigidly compartmentalized daily sexual activities, Ed reveals a part of himself that his friends and coworkers most likely wouldn’t recognize. About 10 percent of gay men are sex addicts. For gay men like Ed who may have a problem with anonymous online hook-ups, porn, sex clubs, and prostitutes, the first step toward personal growth is to gain as much knowledge as possible about sexual addiction. Cruise Control will help readers determine whether or not they are sex addicts and how to reclaim their sexual health. This second edition is revised and expanded to include the impact of social media and mobile apps like Grindr (which uses GPS technology for instant hookups) on the “epidemic” of sex addiction in gay males. Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, is director of sexual disorders services for Elements Behavioral Health and founding director of The Sexual Recovery Institute, an outpatient sexual addiction treatment center in Los Angeles, California. His media appearances include ESPN, The Discovery Channel, the Today show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Anderson Cooper 360°, and Dateline NBC.
Discover the important distinction between being a gay sex addict and a gay man exploring his sexual freedom.

Green Integer Reading Films: My International Cinema
Douglas Messerli

Encompassing two hundred international movies, Douglas Messerli’s Reading Films is a highly personal but profound discussion of some of the most important cinematic achievements from the earliest of film history—including numerous silent films—to current movies in theaters at the time of this book’s publication. As Messerli reveals in his insightful essay, “Reading Films,” his approach is not a mere evaluation of the films he has seen nor a passive appreciation or dismissal, but a deeper look into the structures of the works, the films’ significance in society, and their directors’ and actors’ personal relationship to the created works. Messerli not only “sees” the movies on which he writes, but watches them over and over again, finally “reading” them as works of poetry and fiction, evaluating and comparing them in terms of other works of art. Yet there is nothing “academic” about Messerli’s readings, written from 2000 to the present. His short essays are filled with passionate prejudices and concerns that sometimes take him on tangents other reviewers would not have dared. The author elucidates the contradictions and the sometimes subtle problems these films create that might have gone unnoticed even by their creators themselves. Writing in a lively, sometimes colloquial, occasionally idiosyncratic language, Messerli lays his heart on his sleeve, demonstrating his loves and dislikes in the art of filmmaking. Reading Films is a work any film lover—whether populist or admirer of art house fare—must read. Douglas Messerli is the author numerous books of poetry, fiction, drama, and prose, including the annual My Year series.

Haus Publishing A Woman in the Crossfire
Diaries of the Syrian Revolution

Samar Yazbek
Translated by Max Weiss Foreword by Rafik Schami
A well-known novelist and journalist from the coastal city of Jableh, Samar Yazbek witnessed in person and actively participated in the first four months of the Syrian intifada. Throughout she kept a diary of personal reflections. Her outspoken views published in print, online, and on Facebook quickly attracted the attention and fury of the regime, as vicious rumors spread about her disloyalty to the homeland and the Alawite community from which she comes. This narrative weaves together her struggle to protect herself and her young daughter after she is forced to leave her home and live on the run, detained multiple times, and eventually flees to Europe. Filled with exhilarating hope and horrifying atrocities, A Woman in the Crossfire offers us a wholly unique perspective on the Syrian uprising. Yazbek’s is a modest yet powerful testament to the strength and commitment of countless unnamed Syrians who dream of bringing an end to a forty-year-old dictatorship. Their fight for dignity will inspire all those who read this book and challenge the world to look anew at the trials and tribulations of the Syrian uprising. Samar Yazbek has published several novels and collections of short stories, the most recent of which is In Her Mirrors. An excerpt of her novel Cinnamon was published in the anthology Beirut 39 (Bloomsbury, 2010) and will be published in full by Haus in 2013.

A devastating and personal account of the ongoing uprising in Syria from a prominent Syrian journalist now in hiding.

Haus Publishing The Barbary Figs
Rashid Boudjedra

Winner of the Arab Book Prize. Two old friends and cousins find themselves side by side on the flight from Algiers to Constantine. There is a lot of history between them, as well as bad blood. The flight will last only an hour—an hour during which both their stories will be told, interspersed by anecdotes of Algeria’s struggle to release itself from France’s colonial grip. The title, The Barbary Figs, is a symbol of the “old” Algeria, since their grandfather used to grow them on his estate. The “new” Algeria is far less straightforward, and has produced far more bitter fruit.

Haus Publishing Léon and Louise
Alex Capus
Translated by John Brownjohn

Longlisted for the German Book Prize. A life-long love affair that survives the tribulations of two World Wars, Léon and Louise tells the story of Alex Capus’ French grandfather. It charmed readers in Germany, where it sold nearly two hundred thousand copies and, in the year following publication, never left the Der Spiegel bestseller list. Summer 1918. The First World War is drawing to a close when Léon falls in love with Louise Janvier. Both are severely wounded by German artillery fire, are separated, and believe each other to be dead. Briefly reunited two decades later, the lovers are torn apart again by Louise’s refusal to destroy Léon’s marriage and the German invasion of France. Through occupied Paris during the Second World War, where Léon struggles against the abhorrent tasks imposed on him by the SS, and the wilds of Africa, where Louise confronts the hardships of her primitive environment, they battle the vicissitudes of history and the passage of time for the survival of their love. Léon and Louise’s is an enduring passion and an enchanting tale of love’s triumph against improbable odds. It is a story masterfully told. Alex Capus’ poetic, understated language is beautifully translated by John Brownjohn. Alex Capus is the author of Sailing by Starlight.
A tale of love’s triumph against improbable odds and the vicissitudes of history by one of Europe’s great emerging novelists.

Haus Publishing Baron, Spy, Traitor, Scapegoat?
An Episode of the Great War

Antony Lentin
In the early summer of 1914 Sir Edgar Speyer and his wife Leonora stood at the center of London society, an era made famous by the television series Downton Abbey. He was the “King of the Underground” and a patron of the arts, she a famous violinist and poetess. Yet within weeks of the outbreak of war, they became pariahs, objects of suspicion and aversion. The “anti-alien” campaign following the sinking of the Lusitania forced the Speyers into exile in the United States. He was stripped of his membership of the Privy Council, but she went on to win a Pulitzer Prize for poetry.

Mannerheim
President, Soldier, Spy

Jonathan Clements
“An exemplary and generously illustrated account; it incorporates new historical material, and he describes the journey as if he had been there.” —The Times Literary Supplement Gustaf Mannerheim was one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century. He spent two years undercover in Asia as a spy, escaped the Bolsheviks in 1917, lead the anti-Russian forces in the civil war and later, during Finland’s darkest hour, lead the defense of his country against the impossible odds of the Winter War.

Haus Publishing The Golden Step
A Walk through the Heart of Crete

Christopher Somerville
The only plan for Christopher Somerville’s walk across Crete was to begin in the East at Easter and finish on Pentecost in the extreme West, at the Monastery of the Golden Step. During the three hundred-mile walk he tackled four mountain ranges and the numerous gorges of the West. Speaking only basic Greek and following a poorly marked path, he relied on his instincts to guide him through shepherding country where villages are few and each night’s accommodation uncertain. The result is a book that beautifully evokes a Crete few ever encounter; rugged, perilous, hospitable, and charming.

Haymarket Books Howard Zinn Speaks
Collected Speeches 1963 to 2009

Howard Zinn
Edited by Anthony Arnove
“Howard Zinn—there was no one like him. And to hear him speak was like listening to music that you loved—lyrical, uplifting, honest.”—Michael Moore “Zinn’s speeches . . . are a joy and an inspiration.”—Marisa Tomei “Collected here for the first time, Howard’s speeches come to us at the moment when we need them most: just as a global network of popular uprisings searches for what comes next.”—Naomi Klein Howard Zinn was one of the great orators of the twentieth century and illuminated our history like no other historian. He rarely spoke from notes, and yet could weave rich historical narratives that inspired and captivated audiences. He could grab the attention of even the most jaded students and charm listeners with his sharp humor and personal, engaging style. Many of his speeches have never been published in book form. This first ever collection of his speeches will be an invaluable resource for new generations to continue to discover his work, as well as the millions he moved and informed in his lifetime. Howard Zinn wrote the classic A People’s History of the United States. The book, which has sold more than two million copies, was featured in the film Good Will Hunting, and has appeared multiple times on The New York Times best-seller list. Anthony Arnove wrote, directed, and produced The People Speak with Howard Zinn, Chris Moore, Josh Brolin, and Matt Damon, and co-edited, with Howard Zinn, Voices of a People’s History of the United States.

Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope

Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan
Introduction by Michael Moore
“Amy Goodman has taken investigative journalism to new heights of exciting, informative, and probing analysis.”—Noam Chomsky Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan began writing a weekly column, “Breaking the Sound Barrier,” for King Features Syndicate in 2006. This timely new sequel to Goodman’s New York Times bestseller of the same name gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent. The Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate media reporting to dig deep into the politics of “climate apartheid,” the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent “From Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza.” Throughout Goodman and Moynihan show the power of ordinary people to change their media—and change the world. Amy Goodman is a multiple New York Times best-selling author and the host and executive producer of Democracy Now! a daily independent news program airing on more than one thousand television and radio stations. Time named Democracy Now! its “Pick of the Podcasts,” along with NBC’s Meet the Press. Goodman is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize.” Denis Moynihan, since helping co-found Democracy Now! as an independent production company in 2002 has participated in the organization’s growth, focusing primarily on distribution, infrastructure development, and coordinating complex live broadcasts from all continents (save Antarctica). He lives in Denver, Colorado.

“Every line brims with the grit of the underdog, burns with rage and tenderness. It’s no secret he is one of the most influential poets of this generation.” —Jeff Chang, Can’t Stop, Wont Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation “Boots’ lyrics contain the wit and satire to match their venom and potent political punch. His intricate yet relatable rhymes are like a combination of a Richard Pryor sketch and a guerrilla warfare manual.”—Tom Morello, Rage Against the Machine “Fact is, the brother’s some writer. . . . Their low-slung rhythms imagine what might have happened if Reagan-era Prince had been less into getting some action and more into kicking up some activism.”—The Village Voice “Riley’s rhymes work so well because they’re more about real life than rhetoric. . . . It’s the rare record that makes revolution sound like hot fun on a Saturday night.”—Rolling Stone

Haymarket Books Occupying Wall Street
The Inside Story of an Action that Changed America

Writers for the 99%

“An essential and galvanizing on-the-ground account of how oxygen suddenly and miraculously flooded back into the American brain.”—Jonathan Lethem “[Occupying Wall Street] runs through OWS’ beginnings and provides a fascinating look at how Zucotti Park functioned, the disagreements and difficulties in running the community, and contains first-hand accounts of some of its most dramatic moments. Part souvenir, part how-to guide, this is a remarkable and unique book.”—The Huffington Post For two months this fall, Zuccotti Park was the site of an extraordinary political action. Home to the hundreds of anti-capitalist protestors, the park became a communion of sharing and consensus in the heart of a citadel defined by greed and oligarchy. In the early hours of Tuesday, November 15, the occupiers’ camp was destroyed when police swept suddenly into the square. But if the occupation at Zuccotti was destroyed that night, the movement it spawned across America has only just begun. Occupying Wall Street draws on extensive interviews with those who took part in the action to bring an inside-the-square history to life. In a vivid narrative, the key events of the occupation are described, and woven throughout are stories of daily life in the square focusing on how the kitchen, library, media center, clean-up, hospital, and General Assembly functioned, all in the words of the people who were there. Writers for the 99% is a group of writers and researchers active in supporting Occupy Wall Street who came together to create this book.

Haymarket Books Democracy at Work
A Cure for Capitalism

Richard D. Wolff

“Richard Wolff is the leading socialist economist in the country. This book is required reading for anyone concerned about a fundamental transformation of the ailing capitalist economy!”—Cornel West “Richard Wolff’s constructive and innovative ideas suggest new and promising foundations for a much more authentic democracy and sustainable and equitable development, ideas that can be implemented directly and carried forward. A very valuable contribution in troubled times.”—Noam Chomsky “Probably America’s most prominent Marxist economist.”—The New York Times Capitalism as a system has spawned deepening economic crisis alongside its bought-and-paid-for political establishment. Neither serves the needs of our society. Whether it is secure, well-paid, and meaningful jobs or a sustainable relationship with the natural environment that we depend on, our society is not delivering the results people need and deserve. One key cause for this intolerable state of affairs is the lack of genuine democracy in our economy as well as in our politics. The solution requires the institution of genuine economic democracy, starting with workers directing their own workplaces, as the basis for a genuine political democracy. Here Richard D. Wolff lays out a hopeful and concrete vision of how to make that possible, addressing the many people who have concluded economic inequality and politics as usual can no longer be tolerated and are looking for a concrete program of action. Richard D. Wolff is professor of economics emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He is currently a visiting professor at the New School for Social Research in New York. Wolff is the author of many books, including Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It. He hosts the weekly hour-long radio program Economic Update on WBAI (Pacifica Radio) and writes regularly for The Guardian, Truthout.org, and MRZine.
A new manifesto for gaining democratic control of our workplaces.

Holy Cow! Press — Celebrating Thirty-five Years Ekaterinoslav
One Family’s Passage to America: A Memoir in Verse

Jane Yolen

In Ekaterinoslav, award-winning author Jane Yolen writes about her father’s family journey from a small shtetl in the Ukraine in the early part of the twentieth century, through the Ellis Island portal, to a home in New Haven, Connecticut. Her father, only seven at the time, grew up wholly American and never spoke to her of the family’s passage. Here, through these brilliant poems, she pieces together a history of her family. Her poems are a celebration of passage, of ritual lost and then found, of a family who left a land of custom and arrived at a place of opportunity. As she says in the poem “Round Frame”: All those years Ekaterinoslav was lost to me, when I could have celebrated Ukrainian winters, learned words of love, fashion, passion, paternity; how to season the fish with pepper, not sugar; how to cut the farfl from flat sheets of dough. All I had was New Haven. Until she comes to understand with the words of the final poem, “Rebirth”: I have written these poems as resurrection. I have molded these words to reinvent moment and memory. I have crafted these short lines for the ones who come after, my children’s children. For them I’ve created, recreated really, a lifetime, a country, a shtetl, a home. I can do no more. Jane Yolen, often called the Hans Christian Andersen of America, is the author of over three hundred books, including Owl Moon and The Devil’s Arithmetic, many of them prize-winners, including the Jewish Library Association’s top honor.
Jane Yolen creates the immigrant history, in evocative poetry and photographs, of her family’s passage to America from 1800s Ukraine.

Holy Cow! Press — Celebrating Thirty-five Years The Boy Who Slept Under the Stars
A Memoir in Poetry

Roseann Lloyd

“This a book about that place inside us all where bafflement meets mystery: a strange place, sometimes frightening and sometimes filled with stars and pines, clear flowing water and the deep joy of companionship.”—Jim Moore Roseann Lloyd’s new poetry collection takes us on a sister’s unflinching exploration into grief for a brother lost on a solo hike in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota. His clothes are found but not his body. How does one mourn without a body? This absence calls up memories of his life and mixed emotions; it evokes other disappearances— children missing in Iraq, climbers lost on Everest, a college student drowned. Even though I’ve said, for two years now, I don’t need his body to do my mourning, I’m suddenly desperate to touch your arms, muscled and tan . . . Full of verbal energy and rich patterns of sound, Lloyd’s lines are allowed to breathe and move about in always interesting forms: prose poems, found poems, section poems, swirling mosaics of time and place. Beautifully crafted, the poems are emotionally complex yet accessible. Roseann Lloyd has published eight books, including three poetry collections: Because of the Light (Holy Cow! Press), War Baby Express (Holy Cow! Press—awarded the Minnesota Book Award for Poetry), and Tap Dancing for Big Mom (New Rivers Press). The anthology she co-edited with Deborah Keenan, Looking for Home: Women Writing About Exile (Milkweed Editions), was awarded an American Book Award. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The poet’s brother disappears mysteriously in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. These deeply felt poems explore loss, grief, and acceptance.

Ig Publishing — Celebrating Ten Years The Terror Factory
Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terrorism

Trevor Aaronson

A groundbreaking work of investigative journalism, The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terror shows how the FBI has, under the guise of engaging in counterterrorism since 9/11, built a network of more than fifteen thousand informants whose primary purpose is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create and facilitate phony terrorist plots so that the bureau can then claim victory in the War on Terror. An outgrowth of Trevor Aaronson’s work as an investigative reporting fellow at the University of California, Berkeley—which culminated in an awardwinning cover story in Mother Jones magazine—The Terror Factory reveals shocking information about the criminals, con men, and liars the FBI uses as paid informants, as well as documenting the extreme methods the FBI uses to ensnare Muslims in terrorist plots—which are in reality conceived and financed by the FBI. The book offers unprecedented detail into how the FBI has transformed from a reactive law enforcement agency to a proactive counterterrorism organization—including the story of an accused murderer who became one of the FBI’s most prolific terrorism informants—and how so-called terrorism consultants and experts have made fortunes by exaggerating the threat of Islamic terrorism in the United States. Trevor Aaronson is associate director and co-founder of the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting, a nonprofit journalism organization that produces reporting about Florida and Latin America. He was a 2010–11 investigative reporting fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, where his reporting about the FBI’s informants in US Muslim communities resulted in a Mother Jones cover story that won the John Jay College/Harry Frank Guggenheim 2012 Excellence in Criminal Justice Reporting Award.

Ig Publishing — Celebrating Ten Years Trailer Park Nation
The Glamorous Rise and Tragic Fall of the Dream of a Mobile America

Mark Van de Walle
Part travelogue and part cultural and literary exploration of the meaning of home and freedom in the American psyche, Trailer Park Nation: The Glamorous Rise and Tragic Fall of the Dream of a Mobile America tells the story of this country’s fascinating and sordid love affair with trailers and trailer parks. Mixing colorful encounters with the offbeat, bizarre, and larger-than-life characters who even today cling to the ideal of a nation on wheels with an appreciation of the trailer’s often contradictory role in modern American history, Trailer Park Nation takes us on a journey from the glittery dawn of the trailer in the early twentieth century—including a visit to a trailer park built by Bing Crosby as a hideout for celebrities to engage in their wildest fantasies—to Slab City, America’s only anarchist trailer park. Along the way, Mark Van de Walle shows us how trailers have been part of some of the strangest episodes of our history and culture—including the Cold War, UFO sightings, and conspiracy theories—and that, despite their contemporary association with trashiness, the trailer was once considered an important technological and social creation that would free Americans from the constraints of place.

Ig Publishing — Celebrating Ten Years The Care and Feeding of Exotic Pets
Diana Wagman

Winnie Parker, mother to an angst-ridden teenage daughter and ex-wife to a successful game show host who left her for a twenty-something contestant, begins a normal day in her hum-drum existence by dropping her car off at the repair shop. After accepting what she believes is a ride to pick up her rental car, Winnie realizes too late that she’s been kidnapped. What follows is a riveting psychological game of cat and mouse set in the kidnapper’s tropically heated house—kept that way for Cookie, a menacing seven-foot long Iguana headquartered in the kitchen. While desperately seeking to escape—which leads to several violent clashes with her increasingly unstable kidnapper—Winnie also tries to understand why she was taken captive. Is her kidnapper merely seeking a ransom or does he have something more sinister in mind? Does he know that Winnie’s mother is an Oscar-winning actress? Or did he connect her with Jonathan, her famous ex-husband? When the truth reveals itself, Winnie is not only forced to fight for her life, but must also protect the lives of those she loves from the kidnapper’s deranged master plan. An engrossing, darkly humorous, edge-of-your-seat story, The Care and Feeding of Exotic Pets explores the dynamic between kidnapper and kidnapped, bizarre reptile lore, and the absurdity of the celebrity lifestyle. Diana Wagman is the author of the novels Bump, Spontaneous—which won the PEN Center USA Award for Fiction—and Skin Deep. She is also a contributing writer to the Los Angeles Times.
From a PEN Award–winning author, an engrossing, darkly humorous, edge-of-your-seat novel—featuring a seven foot iguana.

Ig Publishing — Celebrating Ten Years Love Song For Baby X
How I Stayed (Almost) Sane on the Rocky Road to Parenthood

Cheryl Dumesnil

Love Song for Baby X is the moving and humorous story of a lesbian couple’s struggles with infertility as they attempt to become parents, set against the backdrop of the marriage equality movement. While poet Cheryl Dumesnil suspects she’ll confront some formidable obstacles on her path to parenthood, she is nevertheless unprepared for what she actually encounters, including navigating the maze of the high-tech fertility business, the emotional conundrum of pregnancy loss, and the gathering steam of the marriage equality movement. Love Song for Baby X follows Cheryl and her unlawfully wedded wife through four conceptions, three miscarriages, a temporarily legal wedding during San Francisco’s Winter of Love in 2004, a stint as poster children for the marriage equality movement, and finally the arrival of their longed-for son—after twenty-five hours of labor. Along the way Dumesnil fails often (and comically) in her attempts to cultivate inner peace. Though she struggles mightily with the opposing forces of hope and fear, in the end, she finds the middle ground between them: acceptance.

Ig Publishing — Celebrating Ten Years The Zero Footprint Baby
How to Save the Planet While Raising a Healthy Baby

Keya Chatterjee

In our culture, pregnancy, birth, and childrearing are deeply connected to consumption and resource use. From the baby shower to the minivan and the larger apartment or first house, the baby-raising years are the most hyperconsumptive of our lives, and can set a family on an unsustainable track for years to come. The Zero Footprint Baby: How to Save the Planet While Raising a Healthy Baby shows how to raise a child with little to no carbon footprint. The book covers every issue new parents face, including pregnancy (what kind of birth has the lowest impact), what to feed your baby (breastfeed, formula, or both?), childcare (who should take care of the baby, and how?), and of course, diapering. Using a mix of personal anecdotes, summarized research, and clear guidance on how to pursue the most sustainable baby-rearing options, The Zero Footprint Baby is the resource and reference book for all new parents with green inclinations. Keya Chatterjee is the director for international climate policy at the World Wildlife Fund. She previously served as a climate change specialist at the US Agency for International Development, and also worked on communicating climate issues while at NASA. Keya’s commentary on climate change policy and sustainability issues has been quoted in numerous media outlets, including USA Today, The New York Times, Fox News, The Associated Press, The Washington Post, and NBC Nightly News. She was also featured in a special issue of Politico on climate change highlighting the “muscle of the movement.”

Independent Thinking Press
Bancyfelin, Wales

Independent Thinking Press is a brand new imprint, publishing the work of some of the most innovative practitioners in schools and education today. An award-winning, family-owned UK independent publisher, based in rural West Wales but with a global reach, the company was established in 1992 and has its origins in the distribution of Anglo-American psychology, neurolinguistic programming (NLP), philosophy, and education titles. Independent Thinking, set up by Ian Gilbert in 1993, is a leading voice in the drive to support creative teachers in innovative schools to think for themselves. At a time when education is in danger of being turned into a process by which schools are actively encouraged to churn out young people with qualifications but little else, genuine educationalists need to take back the process of education and spread the message that teaching children to think is real education. The press covers a wide spectrum of educational innovation from practical strategies to engage and motivate all young people, fostering great teaching and learning, to inspirational yet nononsense approaches to educational leadership. We aim to bring out the best in young people and in their teachers with our highly informative, instructional, fun, and often life-changing books. Our authors are our strength and, together, we have published bestsellers, award-winning titles, and ground-breaking work in our specialist areas. A key theme is encouraging learners and teachers to think for themselves: many of our titles help achieve creative thought. These include the awardwinning The Little Book of Thunks, used by teachers around the world to stretch children’s brains; The Big , Book of Independent Thinking: Do things no one does or do things everyone does in a way no one does, the very first in the Independent Thinking series; and The Little book of Values, because educating children to pass tests isn’t , enough. Independent Thinking comprises the work of educational free thinkers: they are committed, non-conformist individuals making a genuine difference in all sorts of schools with many different learners. The Independent Thinking Press is their voice in print.

Independent Thinking Press Independent Thinking
Ian Gilbert

Beyond the goal of teaching children to know things, to pass exams, to get through school, to find a place in the system, we need to teach children to reflect critically on what is going on around them and to ask whether that’s the way it should be? Society, success, morals, poverty, social mobility, happiness, values, mental health, relationships, aspirations, self-esteem, equity, opportunity, politics— all are linked to education. The education of individuals, the education of whole generations. But what do we mean by education and what should a “quality education” involve in the twenty-first century? As one of the United Kingdom’s most sought-after speakers and trainers with experience supporting schools across the world for two decades, this controversial book is Ian Gilbert telling it how it is. Drawing on his experience in the United Kingdom, the Middle East, and most recently Latin America, it is a fascinating and controversial collection of articles, reflections, and inspirations to open our eyes to what education is really all about. Education is one of the hottest topics in the world today but, Ian warns, it is degenerating into a political football passed between politicians and big business. To address the real issues facing individuals, communities, and countries, we need to get education right. This book can help. Ian Gilbert, award-winning author, entrepreneur, and founder of Independent Thinking, has been at the forefront of educational innovation in the United Kingdom for twenty years and has been referred to as “one of the UK’s leading educational philosophers.”
Think for yourself—before someone does it for you.

Independent Thinking Press The Discipline Coach
Powerful Strategies for Helping Your Students Get the Best Out of Themselves

Jim Roberson
Foreword by Ian Gilbert
Jim Roberson, born and raised in the Bronx, was the first African American to play sports for Bronxville High School and his teammate was Roger Goodell, commissioner for the NFL. Jim graduated from the University of Rhode Island. He now lives in the United Kingdom working with some of the most challenging children in school. Jim believes school should be the place where you learn how to succeed in life. Most importantly you have to learn discipline. That is to say “self discipline.” For Jim, behavior is the “B-word” and is forbidden! Discipline, on the other hand, is neatly described not as something others do to you to get you to behave nor even as something you do to yourself, but rather as “what you do for yourself.” Jim advocates a partnership between children and school. The school commits to teach children everything they need to succeed in and beyond school, no matter what career choices they make. In return, children commit to doing “what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, the way it needs to be done.” This unique book cleverly captures Jim’s inspirational message in his own voice. Jim Roberson has been working as a teacher, trainer, and coach on the Discipline Approach for over twenty years.

Kehrer Verlag Saul Leiter
Edited by Brigitte Woischnik and Ingo Taubhorn
Text by Vince Aletti, Margit Erb, Adam Harrison Levy, and Carrie Springer Art by Saul Leiter
Saul Leiter (b. 1923 in Pittsburgh) has only in recent years received his due as one of the great pioneers of color photography. This can perhaps be attributed to the fact that Leiter saw himself for a long time mainly as a painter. After coming to New York in 1946, he exhibited alongside abstract expressionists like Willem de Kooning before beginning in the late 1940s to take photographs. Like Robert Frank or Helen Levitt, he found his motifs on the streets of New York, but at the same time was visibly interested in abstraction. Edward Steichen was one of the first to discover Leiter’s photography, showing it in the 1950s in two important exhibitions at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Back then color photography was regarded as “low art,” fit only for advertising. Leiter accordingly worked primarily as a fashion photographer, for magazines such as Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar. Nearly forty years would go by before his extraordinary artistic color photography was rediscovered. This book, published to mark the first major retrospective of Leiter’s work anywhere in the world, features for the first time, in addition to his early black and white and color images, his fashion photography, the overpainted nudes, as well as his paintings and sketchbooks.
The first major retrospective of American artist Saul Leiter, one of the great pioneers of color photography.

Copley (1919–1996), who as gallery owner, artist, author, and publisher, operated as an important mediator between the surrealists and the pop art movement since the mid-1940s and was one of the most unconventional personalities in the art scene. Tying in with the tradition of Dada, Surrealism, and American pop art, his paintings are an ironic examination of the erotic game played by men and women. The catalog includes numerous unpublished essays by Copley, and several of his works are presented for the first time.

The catalog accompanying the largest exhibition to date of this artist’s work provides a detailed insight into his complex and unusual oeuvre. Installations, photographs, and film from every period of his artistic career are shown. McQueen’s early works are characterized by an experimental approach to cinematic history and the dynamic between black and white, particularly in the aesthetic of silent film. Over the past ten years this aspect of his work has been joined by an exploration of the boundaries between the documentary and the narrative.

Kehrer Verlag Thomas Ruff. Modernism
Photographs by Thomas Ruff
Text by Markus Kramer
The work of Thomas Ruff marks a paradigm change in photography: systematically and on an impressive level of aesthetic quality, the artist has for more than three decades been subjecting the medium of photography to a modernist analysis by introducing several formal innovations. The present examination by collector Markus Kramer focuses for the first time on the unique pictorial vocabulary Thomas Ruff has developed, which with its powerful and complex aesthetic demonstrates—while consistently reflecting on its medium—how the use of photography can be freed from its traditional patterns of application.

Presence is a conceptual and ironic take on the perverse search for celebrity. The book features fifty sittings with Robert De Niro, Jay Leno, Chevy Chase, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Cindy Sherman, Russell Brand, Snoop Dogg, Nick Cave, David Lynch, and more. Only in this new series, portrait photographer Chris Buck makes his famous subjects hide from the camera—and the viewer. Chris Buck has been a professional photographer for more than twenty years and shoots for such clients as GQ, Esquire, Microsoft, and IBM. He was the first recipient of the prestigious Arnold Newman Portrait Prize.

The Global Proliferation of Urban Sprawl

Photographs by Robert Harding Pittman
Text by Alison Nordström, Anette Baldauf, Bill McKibben, and Ellen Dunham-Jones
All across the world a uniform, homogeneous model of development, inspired by Los Angeles–style urban sprawl—consisting of massive freeways, parking lots, shopping malls, and large-scale masterplanned communities with golf courses—is being stamped onto the earth’s topography. This globalized model of architecture does not respect or adapt itself to the natural or cultural environment onto which it is implanted. German American photographer Robert Harding Pittman began working on this project in Los Angeles ten years ago. Since then he has been photographing the spread of “L.A. style development” in Las Vegas, Spain, France, Germany, Greece, Dubai, and South Korea.

Ujjayi’s Journey
Photographs by Maxine Henryson
Text by Mario Kramer
Maxine Henryson explores the world through the lens of color. Hybrids of the abstract and the real, the painterly and the documentary, her photographs present a reality that is a cross between her imagination and the real world. “Ujjayi” means “victorious breath” in Sanskrit. Ujjayi’s Journey is a visual poem exploring religious coexistence, rituals, the female world, and nature. She tells the story of her search for the portrayal of the divine-as-feminine within India’s contemporary culture, linking the present to the past. Maxine Henryson’s photographs have been featured in exhibitions in the United States, Europe, and India.

Leapfrog Press Dancing at the Gold Monkey
Allen Learst

Winner of the 2011 Leapfrog Fiction Contest. “Renders transient moments of great beauty, to reveal the way we might transcend sorrow by our unwavering attention to exquisite detail and the mystery of creation.”—Melanie Rae Thon “Time jumps in this accomplished story cycle, as does the boundary betwixt reality and dream, memory and imagination. . . . And war, as it will, soaks all. Learst writes with the special visceral authority of combat seen and visions earned. Vital, necessary reading.”—Donald Anderson, author of Fire Road “The destruction of the human spirit at the hands of an experience that is as emotionally pyrotechnic and morally absurd as the behavior of [Learst’s] characters.”—Gordon Weaver, author of Count a Lonely Cadence A young naval officer crashes his F-16 fighter jet in the South China Sea, forever changing the lives of the five soldiers who find his body. They move through gritty post-Vietnam Detroit with the women they love in this linked collection of psychological drama, sexual escapades, and latent violence tinged with compassion, grief, and love, arriving finally at the death of one man’s son in Iraq. Allen Learst’s writing explores an interior war—the war of the psyche fought by all returning soldiers—and their attempts to adapt and survive without the knowledge it takes to heal or alleviate their pain. Allen Learst, a Vietnam combat infantryman, worked for Detroit’s auto industry, attended college on the GI Bill, and earned his PhD in creative writing. He is a senior lecturer at the University of Wisconsin, Marinette.
Faith, mercy, grief, guilt, and love: soldiers returning home are haunted by the emotional pyrotechnics and moral absurdity of War.

A white man with more wives than money becomes Africa’s least-competent thief, two Americans contemplate love’s costs and possibilities in Mexico’s mountains, a seasick missionary bumps into God on the equator.

Manic D Press Very Bad When the Drumming Stops
Steven Wishnia

Bass player and rapidly aging punk rocker Underend Vicodini is an unlikely hero. He loves New York City like nobody’s business but does it still love him despite his lack of affluence and influence? His former band, The Gutter Astronomers, was riding high in the 1980s, releasing albums and touring across the country playing to packed nightclubs filled with eager fans, but the Great Recession finds the band members middle-aged and struggling not to drown in the seas of gentrification and disillusion. When lead singer Mickey gets an offer to reunite the band, he jumps at it. But can the old bandmates overcome their acrimonious break up? Can they get back into it without shredding their lives? Can Underend Vicodini find inner peace and, more importantly, a reasonably priced apartment below 14th Street or in Brooklyn? Steven Wishnia is a New York-based musician and journalist. Born on the Lower East Side, he grew up in Brooklyn, New England, Edinburgh, and Long Island. He has played in numerous bands, including the False Prophets, an eclectic punk group that recorded two albums released by Alternative Tentacles. After the False Prophets broke up in 1987, he earned an MA at New York University’s School of Journalism, writing for failing newspapers before working for many years as news editor at High Times. Recipient of two New York City Independent Press Association awards, he currently works as a freelance writer and editor, most often for AlterNet.org and Junior Scholastic, and often performs musically with artist Mac McGill.

Monkfish Book Publishing Essential Chan Buddhism
The Character and Spirit of Chinese Zen

Chan Master Guo Jun
Foreword by Robert Thurman
Essential Chan Buddhism is the rare unearthing of an ancient and remarkable Chinese spiritual tradition. Master Guo Jun speaks through hard-won wisdom on Chan’s spiritual themes familiar to Western readers, such as mindfulness and relaxation in meditation, as well as profound, simply expressed teachings and insightful explorations of religious commitment. Essential Chan Buddhism filters formal spiritual practices through the lens of mundane and everyday life activities. The work captures the lyrical beauty and incantatory style of Guo Jun’s spoken English from the talks he gave at a fourteen-day retreat near Jakarta in 2010 and in subsequent conversations with his editor Kenneth Wapner. This value-priced hardcover edition is both a distinctive addition to Buddhist collections and a thoughtful gift for anyone looking for spiritual guidance. Chan master Guo Jun is one of a new breed of international teachers taking the world’s great wisdom traditions into the twenty-first century. He is currently abbot of Mahabodhi Monastery in Singapore and teaches internationally. Chan master Sheng Yen’s youngest dharma heir, he served as abbot of his Pine Bush, New York, retreat center from 2005 to 2008. A native of Singapore, Guo Jun received his full monastic ordination in Taiwan. He is a lineage holder and successor in Chan as well as the Xianshou and Cien schools of Chinese Buddhism. Essential Chan Buddhism is his first book. Kenneth Wapner’s Peekamouse Books is a book packager and editor. Clients include Bantam, Tarcher/Putnam, Ballantine, and Doubleday. He is well known for his work on Rabbi Jesus, Bones of the Master, and The Zen of Creativity.
An inspiring introduction to Chan Buddhism in a value-priced hardcover edition. Perfect for daily spiritual guidance and gifts.

New Internationalist Dreaming in Public
Creating the Occupy Movement

Amy Schrager Lang and Daniel Lang/Levitsky

Since September 2011, the Occupy movement has captured the world’s imagination. The media has been flooded with accounts of demonstrations, descriptions of the encampments, interviews with Occupiers, and discussions of Occupy’s merits, political and otherwise. But what do its participants have to say? Dreaming in Public gathers together dispatches, essays, blog posts, and images from within the movement aimed at influencing its development and addressing those not yet involved. Produced by participant journalists, political analysts, writers, polemicists, photographers, organizers, and activists, these documents capture the vibrant, contentious, illuminating, and inventive exchange of Occupy. Work from contributors such as Naomi Klein and Harsha Walia complement public declarations from the movement, images, and graphics. Some pieces explore the rites and rituals of the movement, others its aims and overall structure. Yet others take up the role differences of race and gender play in a movement that claims to represent the 99%, and the complicated business of maintaining urban encampments. Many consider the challenge participatory democracy poses to conventional ideas of what politics is or should be. The materials in this collection attest not only to the extraordinary political energy that has already come out of Occupy, but to the implications of the movement for the future. Amy Schrager Lang is professor of English and humanities at Syracuse University and author of a number of books. Daniel Lang/Levitsky is an artist, theater producer, writer, and founding member of the Direct Action Network and Jews Against the Occupation.
A record of the thinking, writing, and imagery from Occupy, and a tool for those who carry the Movement forward.

New Internationalist The No-Nonsense Guide to Corporations
Adam Ma’anit

Almost everywhere we look, we can find the workings of the corporation. Their impacts can be found in the water we drink and the air we breathe. They are in our food, our culture, and our politics. They are an all-pervasive presence in the life of everyone on this planet. And yet we seldom examine what exactly a corporation is, how it works, who controls them, and what benefits and impacts they have on our lives. As we find ourselves in the tenacious grip of a global financial crisis, the need to scrutinize the role and function of corporations is now more important than ever. Adam Ma’anit traces the development of the corporation from its early origins to its modern incarnation, explaining its make-up and demonstrating the power it holds through wealth, lobbying, and the “revolving door” with government. He shows how to tackle some of the core problems associated with corporate power in the first steps of the movement towards a more sustainable and equitable future.

New Society Publishers Life Rules
Nature’s Blueprint for Surviving Economic and Environmental Collapse

Ellen LaConte
Corporate capitalism has ravaged the planet the same way HIV ravages the human body, triggering a critical mass of cascading environmental, economic, social, and political crises. Economic and climate instability, collapsing ecosystems, peak fossil fuels, devastating resource wars—if the Earth were a patient, her condition would be critical. Life Rules offers a comprehensive analysis of our present circumstances, combined with a holistic treatment protocol for restoring health to vulnerable human and natural communities. Predicting that Life will last, but if we don’t make some fundamental changes, life as we know it—and a lot of us—won’t, Life Rules identifies natural laws that have allowed non-human communities to thrive and prosper for several billion years, including: • • • • • Local self-reliance Mutual interdependence Reliance on non-fossil sources of energy Resource conservation, sharing, and recycling Radically democratic self-organization and governance

Growing Nutrient-Dense Food

Vegetables, fruits, and grains are a major source of vital nutrients, but centuries of intensive agriculture have depleted our soils to historic lows. As a result, the broccoli you consume today may have less than half of the vitamins and minerals that the equivalent serving would have contained a hundred years ago. This is a matter for serious concern, since poor nutrition has been linked to myriad health problems including cancer, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. For optimum health we must increase the nutrient density of our foods to the levels enjoyed by previous generations. To grow produce of the highest nutritional quality the essential minerals lacking in our soil must be replaced, but this re-mineralization calls for far more attention to detail than the simple addition of composted manure or NPK fertilizers. The Intelligent Gardener demystifies the process while simultaneously debunking much of the false and misleading information perpetuated by both the conventional and organic agricultural movements. In doing so, it conclusively establishes the link between healthy soil, healthy food, and healthy people. This practical step-by-step guide and the accompanying customizable webbased spreadsheets go beyond organic and are essential tools for any serious gardener who cares about the quality of the produce they grow. Steve Solomon is the author of several landmark gardening books including Gardening When it Counts and Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades. The founder of the Territorial Seed Company, he has been growing most of his family’s food for over thirty-five years.
Beyond organic—a practical guide to nutrient-dense food.

New Society Publishers Beautiful Corn
America’s Original Grain from Seed to Plate

Anthony Boutard

Cultivated from sea level to mountaintop, from parched deserts to sodden rain forests, from the rocky Gaspé Peninsula to the plains of Argentina, corn is the grain of the Americas. In terms of culinary uses, it is amazingly diverse, reflecting the breathtaking variety of the continents and environments from which it evolved. The consummate immigrant, corn is grown extensively on every continent except Antarctica. Market farmer and naturalist Anthony Boutard weaves together this unique plant’s contribution to our culture, its distinctive biology, and the practical information needed to grow and enjoy it at home. Beautiful Corn advocates a return to the nourishing whole grain that built America, in place of today’s genetically modified crops processed by industrial agriculture into synthetic sweeteners and cheap meat. Come along on this lyrical and inspiring journey through the seasons, learning about growing and using corn in the traditional way. Gardeners and market farmers can lead the way to a healthier country by restoring heritage corn varieties to our tables. An unabashed celebration of a much-maligned culinary treasure, Beautiful Corn will forever change the way you view this remarkable plant. Anthony Boutard is a widely recognized advocate in the local food movement, well-known for his efforts in reviving long-lost crops and bringing littleknown varieties to market. He and his wife Carol own Ayers Creek Farm, a 144-acre organic market farm in Gaston, Oregon, specializing in berries, beans, grains, and greens for sale to local restaurants and markets.
From seed to plate—the seasons of a remarkable crop.

New Society Publishers The Thinking Beekeeper
A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives

Christy Hemenway

What’s the buzz about the growing popularity of backyard beekeeping? Providing habitat for bees, pollinating your garden, and producing honey for your family are some of the compelling reasons for taking up this exciting hobby. But conventional beekeeping requires a significant investment and has a steep learning curve. The alternative? Consider beekeeping outside the box. The Thinking Beekeeper is the definitive do-it-yourself guide to natural beekeeping in top bar hives. Based on the concept of understanding and working with bees’ natural systems as opposed to trying to subvert them, the advantages of this approach include: • Simplicity, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness • Increased safety due to less heavy lifting and hive manipulation • Chemical-free colonies and healthy hives Top bar hives can be located anywhere bees have access to forage, and they make ideal urban hives due to their small footprint. Emphasizing the intimate connection between our food systems, bees, and the well-being of the planet, The Thinking Beekeeper will appeal to the new breed of beekeeper who is less focused on maximizing honey yield, and more on ensuring the viability of the bee population now and in the coming years. Christy Hemenway is the owner and founder of Gold Star Honeybees, a complete resource for all things related to beekeeping in top bar hives. A passionate bee-vangelist and advocate for natural, chemical-free beekeeping, Christy is a highly sought-after speaker, helping audiences to understand the integral connection between bees, food, human health, and the future of the planet.

Growing Local Food with Slow Money

Carol Peppe Hewitt

In towns and cities across North America, a quiet revolution is underway. Fed up with sending their money off to make a fast buck in faraway markets, people are putting their money to work where they live, in markets they trust and understand—starting with food. Financing Our Foodshed is a collection of real life stories of these Slow Money pioneers and the local food entrepreneurs, sustainable farmers, bakers, and restauranteurs that they have chosen to support. Fueled by their desire to do more than just eat local food, lenders of “nurture capital” are making low-interest, peer-to-peer loans to the people who produce, process, distribute, and sell food. Meet passionate entrepreneurs including: • Abi, a talented artist-turned-baker, who borrowed the funds for a commercial oven to start a gluten-free bakery • Angelina, owner of a Greek local foods restaurant, who refinanced exorbitant credit card debt incurred by renovations • Chatham Marketplace, a much-loved grocery co-op whose monthly loan payments were reduced by a third, thanks to an ambitious collaboration between sixteen investors Financing Our Foodshed tells the compelling stories of ordinary people doing something extraordinary, and will appeal to anyone who understands the critical importance of sustainably grown local food and resilient local economies, and wants a blueprint to get us there. Carol Peppe Hewitt is a business owner, social entrepreneur, and lifelong activist.

New Society Publishers Occupy Money
Creating an Economy Where Everybody Wins

Margrit Kennedy

Money is arguably one of humanity’s most ingenious inventions. By serving as a medium of exchange, it facilitates the trading of goods and services, and in doing so it allows for specialization and the division of labor. The development of currency has been responsible for many significant advances in the history of civilization. However, modern-day inflation and compound interest have caused our monetary system to mushroom to the point where largescale collapse is not just likely but inevitable—unless we change the system in fundamental ways. As the current crisis gathers steam, bailing out banks, large corporations, and even entire countries will not prevent a complete breakdown of the global economy. It’s time for a grassroots movement to knock conventional money off its pedestal and replace it with a new paradigm that puts people before profit. Occupy Money demonstrates how we can create a monetary system that: • Favors stability over speculation • Eliminates inflation and artificial currency fluctuations • Creates sustainable money through creative alternatives such as interest-free lending and demurrage For many years bankers and other financial insiders have hidden economic truths by describing them in arcane terms that no layperson can understand. Occupy Money explains in clear and simple language why money should serve people instead of people serving money, and in doing so issues a challenge to the very foundations of conventional economic doctrine. A must-read. Margrit Kennedy is an architect, urban and regional planner, and wellknown advocate of complementary currencies. She is the author of the international bestseller Interest and Inflation-Free Money.

New Society Publishers Ecofrugal
Cheaper, Greener Choices for a Happier, Healthier Life

Deborah Niemann

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without—our grandmothers knew the importance of responsible, thrifty choices. But somewhere along the way we lost our way and succumbed to the belief that we can get everything for next to nothing, have it shipped halfway around the world and then, more often than not, just throw it away. This consumer binge is taking its toll. Diet and lifestyle-related illnesses are epidemic, our environment is awash in a sea of plastic, our climate is changing, and the cost of everything is skyrocketing with the price of oil. Are we doomed? No. We can make greener, healthier choices, and we can do it while saving money. Where to start? Ecofrugal is packed with simple, practical ideas and recipes to help you: • Make homemade products for cleaning and skin care • Grow your own food and cook more from scratch • Raise your family without lowering your standards A must-read for anyone who has ever wanted to live a greener life but thought that it would be too expensive, time-consuming, or difficult, this handy, complete guide will show you how small changes can have a huge environmental impact and save you thousands of dollars, all while improving your quality of life. Deborah Niemann is a homesteader, writer, and self-sufficiency expert. The author of Homegrown and Handmade: A Practical Guide to More Self-Reliant Living, she presents extensively on topics including soapmaking, breadbaking, cheesemaking, composting, and homeschooling.

New Village Press Beyond Zuccotti Park
Freedom of Assembly and the Occupation of Public Space

Edited by Ron Shiffman, Rick Bell, Lance Jay Brown, and Lynne Elizabeth
Protests from Tahrir Square to Zuccotti Park have brought the crisis of public space to the forefront of our attention: Where can the public congregate? How can city planning, design, and policies support First Amendment rights to public assembly and free speech? Forty experts in social science, planning, design, civil liberties, urban affairs, and the arts use the Occupy movement as a springboard for original, multidisciplinary essays that address these exigent questions. This foundational book puts issues of democracy and civic engagement back into the center of dialogue about the built environment.

Urban Alchemy
Restoring Joy in America’s Fractured Cities

Mindy Thompson Fullilove, MD
What if divided neighborhoods were causing public health problems? What if a new approach to planning and design could tackle both the built environment and collective well-being at the same time? What if cities could help each other? Dr. Mindy Fullilove, the acclaimed author of Root Shock, uses her unique perspective as a public health psychiatrist to explore ways of healing social and spatial fractures simultaneously. Using the work of French urbanist Michel Cantal-Dupart as a guide, Fullilove takes readers on a tour of successful collaborative interventions that repair cities and reconnect communities to make them whole.

Nobrow Press Nobrow 7: Brave New World
Edited by Alex Spiro and Sam Arthur
“Nobrow’s bold, expansive formula dissolves the borders supposedly demarcating illustration and comics. Their fluidity and hybridity infuse each miniature in this expertly crafted, alluringly colored feast for the eyes, mind, and heart.” —Paul Gravett, author of 1001 Comic Books You Must Read Before You Die “You want a cool book showing the latest and the best comics design out there, Nobrow will more than double your fun.”—Warren Bernard, executive director, Small Press Expo Taking inspiration from Aldous Huxley’s seminal 1931 novel of the same name, Nobrow 7 invites forty-five creative visionaries to re-interpret the theme of a “Brave New World.” Is this our brave new world? This is just one of the questions posed in a stunning large-format, 128-page presentation that features cutting-edge work from the world’s most exciting cartoonists and illustrators. Comprised of fifteen cartoonists and thirty illustrators, the latest edition of Nobrow’s flagship anthology continues to showcase the very best talent in the world of visual and narrative arts. Maintaining the acclaimed flip-cover format of Nobrow 6, Nobrow 7 is, in fact, two titles rolled into one: one side dedicated to comics, the other dedicated entirely to illustration. Featuring: Jillian Tamaki (Indoor Voice, Drawn & Quarterly), Luke Pearson (Hilda and the Midnight Giant, Nobrow Press), Joost Swarte (Is That All There Is? Fantagraphics Books), Tom Gauld (Goliath, Drawn & Quarterly), Anders Nilsen (Big Questions, Drawn & Quarterly), Joseph Lambert (winner of Ignatz Outstanding Artist award for I Will Bite You), and many more.

Nobrow Press Dockwood
Jon McNaught

“McNaught’s comics are slow, quiet, and very sensitive to place and time. The work is certainly poetic but not precious or twee. And the drawings are beautiful. Masterful stuff for someone so young.”—Seth, author of Wimbledon Green and George Sprott: 1894–1975 in Time Dockwood is a small town in the Southeast of England, seven miles east of Brampton Moor. It has a population of 26,000 and is home to a bowling alley, a boating lake, and Willowbrook Outlet Village. It’s a cloudy Tuesday in October and the residents of the town are going about their business as usual. In Elmsview Nursing Home, a kitchen porter dutifully prepares lunch for residents. Elsewhere, a council worker sweeps the fallen leaves from the pavements. Along Nettlefield Road, a paperboy is delivering his daily round. And in the trees, swallows gather noisily in preparation for their annual migration. In this new work, Jon McNaught weaves together the everyday lives of three locals against an evocative backdrop of autumnal transitions. Bittersweet and contemplative, Dockwood is for anyone who believes the stories that take place within life’s small moments can often be the most meaningful of all. Jon McNaught is a printmaker and cartoonist living in Bristol, England. He also works as a printmaking instructor at the University of the West of England. He has produced comic strips for Nobrow, Art Review, and Stripburger, among others. His first book Birchfield Close was published in 2010 by Nobrow Press, as was his second, Pebble Island.
The inimitable Jon McNaught paints autumn through the experiences of a teenage paperboy, a care worker, and a street sweeper.

Nobrow Press Bicycle
Ugo Gattoni

Inspired by the 2012 London Olympic Games, Ugo Gattoni intricately draws a gigantic cycle race through the streets of England’s capital. The latest in Nobrow’s ultra-popular Leporello series, Gattoni depicts the street race to end all street races with an astonishingly detailed illustration that totals over six feet in length. As the reader’s eyes travel alongside Bicycle’s speeding cyclists, it soon becomes clear that this is no ordinary contest. Joining the elite athletes is a whole bunch of people including cycle couriers, commuters, bankers, delivery boys, moms with kids, youths on stolen mountain bikes, fashionistas, and hipsters riding their fixed gear bikes. Featuring an embossed wrap-around jacket, Bicycle has been expertly manufactured in the European Union to the highest standards. Beautifully printed, this specially designed, extra-large concertina title can be read as a book or displayed as an Olympic-sized work of art. In a brilliant alternative take on the biggest sporting event of 2012, Gattoni combines homage with humor in this two-wheeled free-for-all. With cycling only growing in popularity, both as a sport and a lifestyle, this book is an ideal gift for the bike-lover in your life. A recent graduate of one of Paris’ top art schools, Ugo Gattoni wowed the public with an incredible intricate pen drawing measuring approximately thirty-three feet by six feet. This Leporello project for Nobrow Press is his first publication.

Nortia Press Rebel Streets
A Novel of the Irish Troubles

Tom Molloy

Praise for Tom Molloy’s The Green Line: “Molloy’s style is impressive in its tense self-control, conveying impacted emotion with a bare minimum of words. . . . The characters are vividly drawn, the whole thing is painfully realistic, and Tom Molloy has made an impressive debut.”—Publishers Weekly Set in Northern Ireland, Rebel Streets takes an unblinking look at what happens when ordinary people are thrust into a world of violence, extremism, and betrayal—where options are few and consequences severe. Without resorting to caricature or stereotypes, Tom Molloy invites the reader back to a time of religious violence known as the Troubles. Tom Molloy has driven eighteen-wheelers, served as a volunteer firefighter, de-iced commercial jetliners, worked as a social worker, and accompanied IRA fighters during street battles while covering the Troubles in Northern Ireland as a freelance journalist. On several occasions Molloy was detained by British security forces, and was once sent on a brief stint to the infamous Castlereagh detention center, where his novel Rebel Streets opens. Other books by Molloy include The Vandal and The Green Line. A native of Boston, Massachusetts, Tom lives in South Portland, Maine.
A cracked insurgent and a determined loyalist navigate the rough-and-tumble undercurrents of Belfast during the Troubles of Northern Ireland.

Praise for J. D. Davies and the Matthew Quinton novels: “A delightful tale.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Gentleman Captain “Swashbuckling suspense, royal intrigue, and high seas naval action . . . an excellent series.”—Publishers Weekly on The Mountain of Gold “Utterly impossible to put down . . . finely shaded characters, excellent plotting, gut-clenching action, and immaculate attention to period detail. . . . Superb.”—Angus Donald, author of The Outlaw Chronicles “A splendid addition to nautical adventure, and a grand story!” —Dewey Lambdin, author of The Baltic Gambit, on Gentleman Captain “Davies’ depiction of Restoration England is impeccable, his characters truly live and breathe, and the plot kept me in suspense. I could not recommend it more.”—Edward Chupack, author of Silver “As fascinating an account of Restoration politics as it is of the Restoration Navy.”—Seth Hunter, author of the Nathan Peake novels 1665. Britain’s at war, but conspiracies against the King abound. As plague stalks London, Captain Quinton commands a vast man-of-war in the fight against the Dutch. Surviving action in the thick of the Battle of Lowestoft, one of the greatest sea-fights in the age of sail, he returns home only to discover an uncomfortable truth about himself and his family. J.

Paris Press On Being Ill
Virginia Woolf
Introduction by Hermione Lee

“By turns lyrical, self-mocking, and outlandish, Woolf’s meditation on the perils and privileges of the sickbed lampoons the loneliness that makes one ‘glad of a kick from a housemaid.’ When Woolf imagines beauty in a frozenover garden . . . it seems less a triumph of nature than of art.”—The New Yorker “Brilliant and beautiful.”—Francine Prose, Bookforum “[A] long-neglected reverie on illness . . . reprinted by the sterling Paris Press. This is a brilliant and odd book, charged with restrained emotion and sudden humor.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “The resurrection of this forgotten work on illness is a boon indeed. . . . This is Woolf at her spangled best.”—Booklist In this poignant and humorous book, Virginia Woolf observes that no human being is spared toothaches, colds, and the flu. Yet illness—transformative and as common as love and war—is rarely the subject of polite conversation, let alone literature. This paperback facsimile of the 1930 Hogarth Press edition, with Hermione Lee’s introduction to Woolf’s life, work, and On Being Ill, is ideal for book groups, general readers, students, caregivers, and of course anyone suffering from a cold or more serious illness. Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) is among the greatest literary geniuses of the twentieth century. Her groundbreaking books include Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and A Room of One’s Own. Hermione Lee is the renowned author of Virginia Woolf. Her other best-selling biographies include Edith Wharton, Willa Cather, and Philip Roth. She is president of Wolfson College, University of Oxford, England.
Virginia Woolf explores the universal experience of illness, the absence of language that describes pain, and how illness transforms our perception.

Paul Dry Books City Abandoned
Charting the Loss of Civic Institutions in Philadelphia

Vincent D. Feldman
Foreword by Robert Venturi
Philadelphia is rich with forgotten places surprisingly profound in their historical value. Architectural landmarks slowly crumble right in the heart of otherwise vibrant neighborhoods, given only cursory glances by passersby. Vincent D. Feldman photographed these buildings over the last two decades, collecting them in this book—“an aesthetic masterpiece” in the words of Robert Venturi, who contributes a foreword. Philadelphia native Vincent D. Feldman (born 1966) is adjunct assistant professor at Tyler School of Art’s program in Tokyo, Japan.

Process Raw Magic
Super Foods for Super People

Kate Magic

There are some foods that have the power to change your life. There are certain foods that when you eat them, your body is in heaven, your cells start singing, your mind becomes ecstatic. “Yes,” they cry in unison, “Yes, these are the foods that I have been waiting for. These are the foods that I have been craving, that my body has been missing my whole life.” Sometimes, it is a particular nutrient you have been lacking. But more often with these foods it is their synergistic properties. They have a magical energy that comes not only from the synergy of their nutritional composition but from the way they are grown, the lands they are from, their history. Many of them are sacred plants in their countries of origin. What distinguishes Raw Magic from other raw food books is its emphasis on remarkable raw superfoods that can now be accessed at natural food stores and online. It’s new, it’s magic. Includes Kate’s beloved recipes: • • • • Greatest garlic goji relish Broccoli bonkers Rocket fuel soup Fire wizard crackers

Kate Magic is a raw food superstar in her United Kingdom home, but also often flies to North America for teachings and events. She also supervises the well-trafficked website www.rawliving.com.

Pushkin Press Blame
Amanda Harlech

After an unsatisfying relationship, twenty-five-year-old Graye Weston falls immediately under the spell of Anthony Tierney, a virile gentleman farmer whose crumbling country pile contains long-buried family secrets. Abandoning London for a life of rustic seclusion at Oerley Hall, Graye finds herself feeling increasingly isolated as her wedding day approaches, troubled by mysterious noises in the night and the many unanswered questions concerning her fiancé’s background. What was the real fate of Anthony’s brother Lyonel, and how is it connected with his time in Tuscany twenty years previously? Who is the tall, debonair stranger and why does his visit to the Hall infuriate Anthony? And whose are the nocturnal footsteps in the attic? Moving backwards and forwards from the 1960s to the present day, Amanda Harlech’s captivating debut is a Gothic romance in the tradition of Jane Eyre and Rebecca, telling a powerful and moving story in vivid, impressionistic prose. After studying English at Oxford, Amanda Harlech worked at Harpers & Queen before moving to John Galliano’s label. She has famously worked ever since at Chanel as creative consultant and muse to designer Karl Lagerfeld. Amanda has featured in numerous short films and Blame is her first novel.

The Struggle with the Daemon: Hölderlin, Kleist, and Nietzsche
Stefan Zweig
Translated by Eden Paul and Cedar Paul
The Struggle with the Daemon is a brilliant analysis of the European psyche by the great novelist and biographer Stefan Zweig. Zweig studies three giants of German literature and thought: Friedrich Hölderlin, Heinrich von Kleist, and Friedrich Nietzsche—powerful minds whose ideas were at odds with the scientific positivism of their age; troubled spirits whose intoxicating passions drove them mad but inspired them to great works. Born in Vienna in 1881, Stefan Zweig travelled widely, living in Salzburg, Austria, between the wars. He enjoyed worldwide literary fame, first as a poet and translator, then as a biographer.

Translated by Christopher Moncrieff

Armed only with his poetic sensibility, Král sets out to explore our relationship with the places that we inhabit, and with the apparently unremarkable everyday objects that often inform and enrich our lives. Král reveals not only the inner life of mundane objects and places, but also simple, profound truths about ourselves. Born in Czechoslovakia in 1941, Petr Král was a member of the Czech surrealist movement. He moved to Paris, France, in 1968, where he has a considerable reputation as a poet and essayist.

Jacob Slauerhoff draws his reader into a dazzling world of exoticism, betrayal, and exile, where past and present merge and the possibility of death is never far away. Born in The Netherlands in 1898, upon graduating from university Jacob Slauerhoff signed up as a ship’s surgeon with the Dutch East India Company. He was at sea throughout his life, voyaging to the Far East, Latin America, and Africa.

Saqi Books After Zionism
One State for Israel and Palestine

Edited by Antony Loewenstein and Ahmed Moor

“Nothing will change until we are capable of imagining a radically different future. By bringing together many of the clearest and most ethical thinkers about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, this book gives us the intellectual tools we need to do just that. Courageous and exciting.”—Naomi Klein After Zionism brings together some of the world’s leading thinkers on the Middle East question to dissect the century-long conflict between Zionism and the Palestinians, and to explore possible forms of a one-state solution. Time is running out for the two-state solution because of the unending and permanent Jewish colonization of Palestinian land. Although deep mistrust exists on both sides of the conflict, growing numbers of Palestinians and Israelis, Jews and Arabs are working together to forge a different future. Whatever the political solution may be, Palestinian and Israeli lives are intertwined, enmeshed, irrevocably. This daring and timely collection includes essays by Omar Barghouti, John Mearsheimer, Karma Nabulsi, Ilan Pappe, Sara Roy, and Jonathan Cook. Antony Loewenstein is an Australian journalist, activist, and blogger. He is the author of two best-selling books, My Israel Question and The Blogging Revolution. He has written for The Guardian, The Nation, The Huffington Post, and Haaretz. Ahmed Moor is a Palestinian American journalist, blogger, and activist.

Gift Edition

Hassan Massoudy
Introduction by Venetia Porter
“Hassan Massoudy’s calligraphies are arranged to loosely follow the seasons, beginning and ending with autumn: sombre, wintry hues at one end, brilliant tones full of vibrant reds at the other.”—Venetia Porter Hassan Massoudy’s elegant calligraphy depicts the four seasons of the garden. From the icy palettes of winter and the fading hues of autumn to delicate spring growth and the dazzling sunshine and blooms of summer, he captures in calligraphy what countless poets have wrought with words. Massoudy draws his seasonal inspirations from writers and artists, including Kahlil Gibran, Henri Matisse, Lao Tzu, William Blake, and Victor Hugo, as well as from Hungarian, Spanish, Turkish, and Japanese proverbs. Hassan Massoudy was born in Najaf, Iraq. He moved to France in 1969, where he studied at L’École des Beaux-Arts. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, and is in the permanent collections of the British Museum and the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, among others. Nineteen books of his calligraphy have been published in France, along with his autobiography, Si loin de l’Euphrate: Une jeunesse d’artiste en Irak.

Saqi Books The Literary Heritage of the Arabs Volume 1
Tribal Society to the Abassid Dynasty

Edited by Suheil Bushrui and James M. Malarkey
The breadth of Arabic literature produced by Arab writers from pre-Islamic times to the Abbasid Dynasty reveals a world of thought and feeling largely unseen and unheard in the English-speaking world. In this wide-ranging and unique anthology, works by Christian, Jewish, and Muslim authors show the genius of Arab civilization through the prism of literature. Through odes (or Mu’allaqat); selections from the Qur’an; samples of Hadith and the poetry of rivalry, love, adventure, and mystic transcendence; and prose conveying scientific innovation, philosophical inquiry, theological disputation, and historical analysis, this extraordinary collection provides an authoritative overview of Arabic literature.

Lebanon today is at a fateful crossroads in its eventful socio-cultural and political history. Imperiled by unsettling transformations, from postwar reconstruction and rehabilitation to the forces of postmodernity and globalism, it remains adrift. In this landmark study, Samir Khalaf explores how ordinary citizens, burdened by the consequences of war, persisting regional rivalries, mounting economic deprivation, and diminishing prospects for well-being, find meaning and coherence in a society that has not only lost its moorings and direction, but also its sense of control.

Sarabande Books Let Me Clear My Throat
Essays

Elena Passarello

From Farinelli, the eighteenth century castrato who brought down opera houses with his high C, to the recording of “Johnny B. Goode” affixed to the Voyager spacecraft, Let Me Clear My Throat dissects the whys and hows of popular voices, making them hum with significance and emotion. There are murders of punk rock crows, impressionists, and rebel yells; Howard Dean’s “BYAH!” and Marlon Brando’s “Stella!” and a stock film yawp that has made cameos in movies from A Star is Born to Spaceballs. The voice is thought’s incarnating instrument and Elena Passarello’s essays are a riotous deconstruction of the ways the sounds we make both express and shape who we are—the annotated soundtrack of us giving voice to ourselves. Elena Passarello is an actor and writer originally from Charleston, South Carolina. She studied nonfiction at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Iowa, and her essays have appeared in Creative Nonfiction, Gulf Coast, Slate, Iowa Review, The Normal School, Literary Bird Journal, Ninth Letter, and in the music writing anthology Pop Till the World Falls Apart. She has performed in several regional theaters in the East and Midwest, originating roles in the premieres of Christopher Durang’s Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge and David Turkel’s Wild Signs and Holler. In 2011 she became the first woman winner of the annual Stella Screaming Contest in New Orleans.

Phone psychics, Judy Garland, and the Rebel Yell make an annotated soundtrack of the whys and hows of popular voices.

Stone Bridge Press Persona
A Biography of Yukio Mishima

Naoki Inose with Hiroaki Sato

Yukio Mishima (b. 1925) was a brilliant writer and intellectual whose relentless obsession with beauty, purity, and patriotism ended in his astonishing self-disembowelment and decapitation in downtown Tokyo in 1970. Nominated for the Nobel Prize, Mishima was the best-known novelist of his time (works like Confessions of a Mask and The Temple of the Golden Pavilion are still in print in English), and his legacy—his persona—is still honored and puzzled over. Who was Yukio Mishima really? This, the first full biography to appear in English in almost forty years, traces Mishima’s trajectory from a sickly boy named Kimitake Hiraoka to a hard-bodied student of martial arts. In detail it examines his family life, the wartime years, and his emergence, then fame, as a writer and advocate for traditional values. Revealed here are all the personalities and conflicts and sometimes petty backbiting that shaped the culture of postwar literary Japan. Working entirely from primary sources and material unavailable to other biographers, author Naoki Inose and translator Hiroaki Sato together have produced a monumental work that covers much new ground in unprecedented depth. Using interviews, social and psychological analysis, and close reading of novels and essays, Persona removes the mask that Mishima so artfully created to disguise his true self. Naoki Inose, currently vice governor of Tokyo, has also written biographies of writers Kikuchi Kan and Osamu Dazai. New York–based Hiroaki Sato is an award-winning translator of classical and modern Japanese poetry, and also translated Mishima’s novel Silk and Insight.

Stone Bridge Press Professor Risley and the Imperial Japanese Troupe
How an American Acrobat Introduced Circus to Japan— and Japan to the West

Frederik L. Schodt
“Frederik L. Schodt has at long last unveiled the fascinating story of ‘Professor Risley.’ Circus scholars, history buffs, and anyone with an ounce of curiosity should be grateful to him.”—Dominique Jando, Circopedia.org “Professor” Risley (Richard Risley Carlisle) introduced the Western circus to Japan in 1864. Three years later, this former acrobat gave many in the West their first glimpse of Japan when he took his “Imperial Japanese Troupe” of acrobats and jugglers on a triumphant tour of North America and Europe. Over the next few years, the Troupe performed before presidents, monarchs, and ordinary citizens. Frederik L. Schodt argues compellingly that such early popular entertainments helped stir a curiosity about all things Japanese that eventually led to japonisme, The Mikado, and, in our time, the boom in manga and anime. Schodt’s depiction of Risley and his troupe is enlivened by portraits of the circus demimonde and supported by nineteenth-century photographs, posters, and drawings, many in color. His accounts of these first meetings between Westerners and Japanese shed new light on how different cultures meet, mingle, and influence each other. Descriptions of crowds, dazzling routines, and superstar troupe performers like the famous Little All Right are a delightful revelation to anyone interested in Asia, the circus, and popular entertainment. Frederik L. Schodt has authored numerous books about Japan, including Manga! Manga! and Native American in the Land of the Shogun. In 2009 for his work he was awarded the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette.

Talonbooks Minor Episodes / Major Ruckus
Garry Thomas Morse

In tribute to the surrealist narrative techniques of André Breton and Robert Desnos, Minor Episodes documents the serial adventures of Minor, the ubiquitous “everymogul” who embodies the economic one percent and keeps musically erotic quixotics on tap. Having entered a “rent in time” that gives each chapter an alternate reality, Minor swaggers through an undersea casino, in-flight blockbuster, bawdy Western, and Kafkaesque job hunt, cavorting with billboard queen Bébé Lala and country-music legend Faith Faith, when not dressing down his shifty sidekick, The Concierge, or haunting the intensely disinterested songstress Miss Sharp. However, danger looms in the form of The Stropper, a serial killer fresh out of a shaving promotion, and an enigmatic ginger-beer icon who has retired from a satisfying life of culinary assassinations. Major Ruckus, a contrapuntal text and parody of the speculative fiction genre, celebrates the stylistic techniques of William S. Burroughs and Robert Anton Wilson, following a frenzied struggle by various parties to obtain an essential time-travel component, a struggle that includes psychic “dicks,” universal callcenter operators, aboriginal eroticists, lubricant heiresses, rogue advertisement animations, pornography censors, and alien sperm-bank clones, all to the horrified fascination of hapless meta-writer Oober Mann. But ultimately it is Carl Sagan who creates the most confusion, when his prudish doodle of a woman is sent into space aboard the Voyager probe, triggering a plan to “assist” Earth’s declining population through extraterrestrials in the guise of census takers. Minor Episodes and Major Ruckus introduce The Chaos! Quincunx series. Garry Thomas Morse is a Governor General’s Award–nominated poet and fiction writer.

Talonbooks A History of Change
Dispatches from the Occupation

Stephen Collis

Somewhere at the core of almost every intellectual discipline is an attempt to explain change—why and how things change, and how we negotiate these transformations. It is the most ancient of philosophical questions, but in this collection of essays, award-winning poet Stephen Collis investigates the Occupy movement as it takes up the cause of social, economic, and political change. A History of Change opens with a series of short essays on the Occupy movement as the author witnessed it, and participated in it, firsthand. Here are “dispatches” from the day-to-day unfolding of the occupation in Vancouver, short manifestos, theoretical musings, and utopian proposals. The global Occupy movement has only just begun, so this book presents an important first report from the front lines. The middle section of the book is a long meditation on the idea of change as it moves through intellectual history. Change follows certain patterns, and its articulation can be compared across the humanities and sciences. Here the idea of “social change” is set in the wider context of change as one of the timeless ideas and problems of philosophy. A History of Change closes with a reflection on the city of Rome, written in the shadows of the Pantheon. Collis traces the trope of Rome as the “eternal city,” from its imperial past to the rebirth of Roman republicanism during the French Revolution and the era of modern social movements.

Adeena Karasick

This Poem is an ironic investigation of contemporary culture and the technomediatic-saturated world we are enmeshed in. Composed in the style of Facebook updates and extended tweets, each section infuses itself with continuously shifting tones, styles, and commentary which are in turn provocative, emotive, and deeply satiric. Mashing up lexicons of Gertrude Stein, Louis Zukofsky, William Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, the recent financial meltdown, semiotic theory, Lady Gaga, Jacques Derrida, and Flickr streams, This Poem is a self-reflexive romp through fragments of post-consumer culture.

Talonbooks Theogony / Works and Days
Hesiod
Translated by C.S. Morrissey
C.S. Morrissey’s brilliant translations bring a modern sensibility to Theogony and Works and Days, Hesiod’s two great poems that paved the way for subsequent achievements in Greek philosophy. Theogony tells of the first generations of the gods and recollects how Zeus established his cosmic reign of justice. Works and Days examines the two-fold role of competition in life, what Hesiod calls “the bad strife” and “the good strife” and how they affect our struggle to maintain order in the wake of chaos and the primeval void. C.S. Morrissey is a professor of philosophy at Trinity Western University.

Sjón
Translated by Victoria Cribb

“An extraordinary, powerful fable—a marvel.”—Alberto Manguel “Sjón writes like a man under a spell, filled with enchantment and magic and great wit. He is a rogue of the first order.”—Keith Donohue The year is 1949 and Valdimar Haraldsson, an eccentric Icelander with elevated ideas about the influence of fish consumption on Nordic civilization, has had the singular good fortune to be invited to join a Danish merchant ship on its way to the Black Sea. Among the crew is the mythical hero Caeneus, disguised as the second mate. Every evening after dinner he entrances his fellow travelers with the tale of how he sailed with the fabled vessel, the Argo, on the Argonauts’ quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece. Sjón is a celebrated poet, novelist, and songwriter. His novels have been translated into twenty-five languages, and include From the Mouth of the Whale and The Blue Fox (both Telegram Books). In 2005 Sjón won the Nordic Council Literary Prize, the equivalent of the Man Booker Prize, for The Blue Fox and Best Icelandic Novel for The Whispering Muse. Sjón has written lyrics for Björk, including for her most recent musical project, Biophilia. He lives in Reykjavik, Iceland. Victoria Cribb lived in Iceland for many years. She now lives in England, where she is completing a PhD in Old Icelandic literature at the University of Cambridge. Her translations include three novels in collaboration with Olaf Olafsson.

Theatre Communications Group The Adventures of Eugene Lee
Eugene Lee
Introduction by Oskar Eustis Afterword by Lorne Michaels
“This is a beautiful overview of the mind and spirit of Eugene Lee. It’s messy, unpretentious, spontaneous and full of joy—an utterly original designer who has worked successfully in more venues, mediums and esthetics than any scenic designer in American history.”—Oskar Eustis “Over the years whenever I felt the show [Saturday Night Live] has lost something, a feeling that we have wandered off our original principles—I turn to Eugene to restore the balance. He is the keeper of the flame with me—the true heart of the show.”—Lorne Michaels The Adventures of Eugene Lee takes us through the personal artistic journey of one of the major scenic designers of our time, with stops along the way in Rhode Island; NBC studios; Broadway; Texas; London; Alberta, Canada; and The Great Karoo, South Africa. Designed by Lee himself, this autobiographical scrapbook is illustrated with hundreds of photographs, sketches, diagrams, and models from his personal archives. It also provides an inside look at numerous collaborations with some of theater’s major artists and Lee’s designs for SNL and theater productions including Wicked, Ragtime, Show Boat, Candide, and Sweeney Todd. There are side trips and stories as well, covering his beloved sailboats, VW bug, carriage house design studio, and even his “flops.” Eugene Lee has been Saturday Night Live’s production designer since 1974 and resident designer at Trinity Rep since 1967. An adjunct professor at Brown University, Lee has received numerous awards, including three Tony Awards, American Theatre Wing’s Design Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Drama Desk Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Elliot Norton Award, Pell Award, and an induction into the Theatre Hall of Fame.
A one-of-a-kind illustrated autobiography of one of the theater’s foremost designers.

Theatre Communications Group After the Revolution and 4000 Miles
Two Plays

Amy Herzog

“After the Revolution is a smart, funny and provocative play. . . . Herzog deftly avoids simple-minded polemics in favor of richly detailed people who are as ready to examine their relationships as they are their consciences.”—Variety “A funny, moving new play . . . 4000 Miles is a quiet meditation on mortality. But it’s hardly a downer: Ms. Herzog’s altogether wonderful drama also illuminates how companionship can make life meaningful, moment by moment, in death’s discomforting shadow.”—The New York Times Known for delicately detailed character studies that subtly balance humor and insight, Amy Herzog is swiftly emerging as a striking new voice in the American theater. After the Revolution, an astute and ironic drama about how society appropriates history for its own psychological needs, was heralded by The New York Times as one of the Ten Best New Plays of 2010. Herzog’s other critical hit, 4000 Miles, is a quiet rumination on mortality in which twenty-one-yearold Leo seeks solace from his feisty ninety-one-year-old grandmother Vera in her New York apartment.

“The reigning (and often brilliant) king of enervation in experimental theatre . . . one of the few truly original experimental theater auteurs to emerge in New York during the past decade.”—The New York Times “A downtown writer and director with a distinctive deadpan aesthetic.” —Time Out New York “His work is troubling. . . .

Torrey House Press
Torrey, Utah

Torrey House Press is a publisher with a cause. We aim to increase awareness of and appreciation for the land, history, people, economy, and cultures of the American West through the power of pen and story. The world vacations in the numerous national parks, monuments, and wilderness areas of the American West. It’s an arid and sparsely populated country—harsh, wild, dramatic, beautiful, and delicate. These red rock deserts and mountain forests belong to the public: to all Americans as well as the people who live here. However, many of today’s land management practices remain tied to outdated legislation that perpetuates century-old customs that disrupt and damage the landscape. Even small changes of hearts, minds, and policies could make a big difference to the land and all the people who love it. Thus our slogan: Writing the New West. Torrey House publishes works that cultivate the West’s version of thinkers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau and the tradition of original western authors including Willa Cather, Edward Abbey, Wallace Stegner, and today’s Brady Udall and Terry Tempest Williams. There is plenty of room for more such writers to tell the stories of the Colorado Plateau and the West, and Torrey House Press is here to help both published and new writers share their best fiction and literary nonfiction with the rest of the world. Given our desire to contribute to the betterment of both the ecology and the economy of the West, we donate two percent of Torrey House Press sales to a select group of not-for-profit environmental organizations. Donations also fund a scholarship available to upcoming writers at Western colleges. 2% to the West is our trademark logo, placed on the cover of each of our books, demonstrating our commitment.

Torrey House Press The Ordinary Truth
Jana Richman

Praise for Jana Richman’s The Last Cowgirl: “Richman’s mastery of the emotional geography is illuminating. . . . Calls to mind the work of Pat Conroy.”—Kirkus Reviews When Nell Jorgensen buried her husband, she buried a piece of herself—and more than one secret. Now, thirty-six years later, the rift between Nell and her daughter Kate threatens to implode as Kate, a water manager for the Nevada Water Authority, plans to pipe water from a huge aquifer that lies beneath the family ranch to thirsty Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Nell’s granddaughter Cassie intends to unearth those old secrets and repair the resentments that grew in their place. Throughout the novel, sparse and beautiful landscapes surround an emotional wilderness of love, loss, and family. Jana Richman is the award-winning author of The Last Cowgirl (HarperCollins, 2009), a novel which won the 2009 Willa Award for Contemporary Fiction. A sixth-generation Utahn, Jana was born and raised in Utah’s west desert, the daughter of a small-time rancher and a hand-wringing Mormon mother. With the exception of a few misguided years spent in New York City trying to make a fortune on Wall Street, she has lived her entire life west of the hundredth meridian. She writes about issues that threaten to destroy the essence of the west—and about passion, beauty, and love. Jana lives in Escalante, Utah.
Today’s western water wars and one family’s secrets divide three generations of women as urban and rural values collide.

This smart and lively novel tracks the extraordinary life of one woman who dares resist communal salvation in order to find her own. Clair Martin’s dauntless search for self leads her from the domination of Mormon polygamy to the chaos of Reconstruction Dixie and back to Utah where she learns from Shoshone Indian ways how to take her place, at last, in the land she loves. Barbara K. Richardson’s debut novel Guest House was an Eric Hoffer Award fiction finalist. She lives and writes in Boulder, Colorado.

Recent & Recommended from Torrey House Press The Scholar of Moab
Steven L. Peck

A mysterious redactor finds the journals of Hyrum Thayne, a high-school dropout and wannabe scholar, who manages to wreak havoc among townspeople who are convinced he can save them from a band of mythic Book of Mormon thugs and Communists. Though he never admits it, the married Hyrum charms a sensitive poet claiming that aliens abducted her baby (is it Hyrum’s?) and philosophizes with Oxford-trained conjoined twins who appear to us as a two-headed cowboy. Steven L. Peck’s hilarious novel considers questions of consciousness and contingency, and the very way humans structure meaning.

Two Dollar Radio Crapalachia
A Biography of a Place

Scott McClanahan

“McClanahan’s prose is unfettered and kinetic and his stories seem like a hyper-modern iteration of local color fiction. His delivery is guileless and his morality ambivalent and you get the sense, while reading him, that he is sitting next to you on a barstool, eating peanuts and drinking a beer, and intermittently getting up to pick a song on the jukebox.”—The Rumpus There were 13 of them. The children had names that ended in Y sounds. There was Betty and there was Annie and there was Stirley and there was Stanley and there was Leslie and there was Gary and there was Larry and there was Terry. Ruby said: “I like names that end in Y.” They all grew up in Danese, WV, eating blackberries for breakfast and eating blackberries for lunch and watching the snow come beneath the door in the wintertime. When Scott McClanahan was fourteen he went to live with his Grandma Ruby and his Uncle Nathan, who suffered from cerebral palsy. Crapalachia is a portrait of these formidable years, coming of age in rural West Virginia. Peopled by colorful characters and their quirky stories, Crapalachia interweaves oral folklore and area history, providing an ambitious and powerful snapshot of overlooked Americana. Scott McClanahan is the author of Stories II and Stories V! His fiction has appeared in BOMB, Vice, and New York Tyrant. His novel Hill William is forthcoming from Tyrant Books.
A colorful and elegiac coming-of-age story that announces Scott McClanahan as a resounding, lasting talent.

Tyrant Books
New York, New York

Though founded only recently in 2009, Tyrant Books has garnered the respect and the loyal fan base comparable to any cornerstone New York publishing house. Our taste is so well-defined that readers have begun seek out our releases without even having any knowledge of the writer or book. Our readers buy our books because they know what we publish, they love what we publish, and they know that we will continue to publish what they love, consistently. Tyrant Books operates as somewhat of a testing ground for today’s emerging writers, whose work is initially deemed too incendiary or avant garde for the more mainstream audiences and presses. However, we have proven with all of our releases that our titles can usurp the attention and praise from both prominent reviewers and major press. Our first novel, Firework, was featured in Vanity Fair. Our second novel, Us by Michael Kimball, was chosen by Oprah for her 2011 summer reading list. Our American readership flocked to the shelves and online sources to purchase these books, and are waiting for what we do next. In a market polarized between the indie press and the traditional powerhouse, Tyrant alone has traversed this gap—and is hailed by the industry and the American readership as the only independent press whose releases contain some of the best writing of the past decade. Eugene Marten’s Firework, for instance, has become an instant classic. Tyrant Books publishes what will last.

Tyrant Books Strange Cowboy
Lincoln Dahl Turns Five

Sam Michel

“Sam Michel is such a smart, manic, virtuosic stylist . . . the kind of deep insights that make you suddenly and newly appreciative of the world around you.” —George Saunders There was a hot, high sun, a hard ground and a long way off to any certain water, and my wife, a tenderfoot, I thought, not immodest, seemed bent on ruined feet and spectacle, on making of herself to passing innocents a living proof of what could happen to a man and woman ventured too far off alone together in the desert. Yet who passed? Who could be so innocent? Snakes and ravens, rabbits, buzzards, toads— these passed, these witnessed, and what could they have made from us? . . . I saw myself preceded by my wife. I wanted to follow her, feel what she felt; I thought that I might find myself absolved . . . Maybe I would get some. Somewhere in me was a cheerful voice assuring me that what this needed was our getting laid. Here is the head of his home—the one to speak, surely—on the occasion of his son Lincoln Dahl Jr.’s fifth birthday. Wife and mother order him to engage with his boy, but he remains in his chair dreaming up the speech he’ll give to convey his life and glory to his boy, meanwhile avoiding his child and all others, until forced from his chair. Here’s cowboy Beckett, a man of wonder and excess. Sam Michel is the author of Under the Light and Big Dogs and Flyboys.

Tyrant Books Sky Saw
Blake Butler

“If there’s a more thoroughly brilliant and exciting new writer than Blake Butler . . . well, there just isn’t.”—Dennis Cooper “Blake Butler, mastermind and visionary, has sneaked up and drugged the American novel.”—Ben Marcus I could go on at what these days were but the truth is I am tired. Would you even believe me if I did or didn’t? Could this paper touch your face? I’ve spent enough years with my face arranged in books. I’ve read enough to crush my sternum. In each of the books are people talking, saying the same thing, their tongues thin and white and speckled. I don’t want to be here. I want to get older. I want to see my skin go folding over. Someday I plan to die. Books that reappear when you destroy them, lampshades made of skin, people named with numbers and who can’t recall each other, a Universal Ceiling constructed by an otherwise faceless authority, a stairwell stuffed with birds: the terrain and populace of Sky Saw is packed with stroboscopic memory mirage. In dynamic sentences and image, Blake Butler crafts a post-Lynchian nightmare where space and family have deformed, leaving the human persons left in the strange wake to struggle after the shapes of both what they loved and who they were. Blake Butler is the author of Ever, Scorch Atlas, There Is No Year, and Nothing: A Portrait of Insomnia. He is the editor of the literary blog HTMLGIANT.
Another disturber from the author of Nothing and There Is No Year.

Eugene Marten

Praise for Eugene Marten’s Waste: “When a poet pal had put a copy of Waste into my hands, I right away went nuts. . . . Here, said I, in wild proclamation, is one for history and a half.” —Gordon Lish Firework is the story of a man who, though ill-equipped to help himself, attempts to help someone else, and the beautifully rendered, perhaps necessary catastrophe that results. Unequaled in intensity and often blackly humorous, it is also an exhilarating expression of the all-too-human impulse to become more than what we seem to be. Eugene Marten is the author of In the Blind and Waste.

Umbrage Editions Wood by Design: The Artistry of John Yarema
John Yarema
“A gifted artist who takes woodworking to a new level, there is no one in John’s league. John Yarema is the Michelangelo of wood floors.”—Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Mary Richardson Kennedy Wood by Design presents the extensive body of work of John Yarema, one of the world’s most dynamic artisans. Full-color photographs from homes and businesses across the globe showcase the opulence and ingenuity of his designs. This monograph features some of Yarema’s most brilliant interiors, oneof-a-kind masterpieces that convey his unparalleled skill and true artistry. From the naissance of his career over twenty years ago, Yarema has worked with recycled, locally sourced, often salvaged materials—a practice that reflects his commitment to sustainability and his conviction that environmentally responsible methods are not only viable, but essential, to the future of high-end design. This book details his methods and sources and offers best practices for ethical design. John Yarema discovered his passion for the craft of wood flooring and design in 1991, when he and his wife moved into a nineteenth-century one-room schoolhouse and renovated the building from top to bottom. This project proved to be a life-changing event, and ever since Yarema has specialized in creating exquisite hardwood floors and interiors using sustainable building techniques. He has been commissioned to design projects for the SC Johnson complex, the Kennedy Green House, the Detroit Institute of the Arts, and residential clients from New York to Moscow to Los Angeles.
This monograph presents the awe-inspiring, environmentally sustainable interior design work of John Yarema— master craftsman, woodworker, and artist.

Umbrage Editions Substructure
CYJO
Foreword by Jonathan Hursh Introduction by Sean Mooney
In stark, black and white images, artist CYJO documents fifty Chinese migrants, photographing only the subjects’ hands to reveal, paradoxically, the collective identity and anonymity of these marginalized workers. Through the migrants’ personal histories—recorded by the artist—we learn about the dire circumstances that forced them from their villages in search of work and, ultimately, survival. Since China’s economic boom three decades ago, rapid urbanization has spurred internal migration from the countryside to cities, creating an impoverished labor force that faces unfair working conditions, limited access to education, and poor health care. Through faceless portraits, CYJO conveys the indignity experienced by the laborers; it is only the unique texture of each subject’s hands that provides identification, and acts as physical evidence of harsh working and living conditions. Substructure was created in collaboration with Compassion for Migrant Children, a nonprofit organization that helps China’s urban migrant children through social and educational programs. CYJO (Cindy Hwang) has exhibited her work nationally and internationally at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC; T. Art Center, Beijing, China; and The Korea Society, New York. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and broadcasts including The New York Times, Smithsonian magazine, and The Wall Street Journal, among others. Her first book, Kyopo, was published by Umbrage Editions in 2011. Jonathan Hursh is the founder of Compassion for Migrant Children, which benefits children of urban migrant workers and their communities in China through social and educational programs. Sean Mooney has worked as an educator, designer, curator, museum administrator, and visual artist. In 2000 he co-founded SMAK Projects, a New York– based exhibitions consultancy that produces museum exhibitions worldwide.
Detailed portraits of Chinese migrant workers’ hands and revealing interviews juxtapose notions of the anonymous and personal in migrant life. Also Available

Umbrage Editions Sudden Flowers
May The Finest In The World Always Accompany You!

The Children of the Sudden Flowers Collective
Edited by Eric Gottesman
In powerful photographic vignettes, Sudden Flowers illuminates American artist Eric Gottesman’s twelve-year experience working with children orphaned or affected by HIV/AIDS in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Using the technique of “positive-negative film,” which produces both print and negative images, Gottesman taught the children to use cameras in order to create portraits that communicate the complexity of their experience. With his help, the children formed the art collective Sudden Flowers, where today they continue to express themselves through the media of photography and film. The eponymous book is a representation of the work produced by both the children and Gottesman himself, and the poignancy of their combined vision. Self-portraits intertwine with youth testimonials to reveal an Ethiopian conscience whose activism and potential was not limited by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Eric Gottesman studied history, literature, and political science at Duke University and completed his master’s degree in fine art at Bard College. His collaborative photography project on the impact of AIDS in one Ethiopian community has been supported by arts organizations, NGOs, foundations, and UN agencies. His work has been featured in books and exhibited internationally. Gottesman is a 2012 Artist in Residence at Amherst College.

Uncivilized Books The Voyeurs
Gabrielle Bell
Introduction by Aaron Cometbus

“The Voyeurs is the work of a mature writer, if not one of the most sincere voices of her literary generation. It’s a fun, honest read that spans continents, relationships and life decisions. I loved it.”—Chris Ware, Acme Novelty Library “As she watches other people living life, and watches herself watching them, Bell’s pen becomes a kind of laser, first illuminating the surface distractions of the world, then scorching them away to reveal a deeper reality that is almost too painful and too beautiful to bear.”—Alison Bechdel, Fun Home “A master of the exquisite detail, Bell provides a welcome peephole into our lives.”—Françoise Mouly, The New Yorker The Voyeurs is a real-time memoir of a turbulent five years in the life of renowned cartoonist, diarist, and filmmaker Gabrielle Bell. It collects episodes from her award-winning series Lucky, in which she travels to Tokyo, Paris, the south of France, and all over the United States, but remains anchored by her beloved Brooklyn, where sidekick Tony provides ongoing insight, offbeat humor, and enduring friendship.

Uncivilized Books True Swamp
Choose Your Poison Definitive Edition

Jon Lewis
Introduction by Charles Hatfield Foreword by Ed Brubaker
“True Swamp is a true classic. Melancholy frogs, awkward cross-species relationships, thoughtful discussions on the meaning of life and love and the possibility of kindness, and of course the ever-present need to eat and not be eaten. Jon Lewis has created a world so rich in detail and personality that once you’ve dipped your toe in the warm larvae-filled water, you won’t want to leave. And to tell the truth, you never will. It’s been nearly twenty years since I first read these stories and still they simmer away inside my brain, like a benevolent ink-borne parasite that burrows ever deeper, exposing strange new layers of wonder and insight in that crowded fertile swamp we call life.” —Dylan Horrocks, Hicksville True Swamp: Choose Your Poison collects the first storyline of this landmark series, telling the tale of Lenny the Frog—part coming-of-age story, part fantastic adventure, part gutter poetry. Unavailable for over a decade, this twentieth anniversary edition features meticulously restored art, never-reprinted material, an introduction by Charles Hatfield (The Hand Of Fire: The Comics Art Of Jack Kirby), and a foreword by Ed Brubaker (Criminal, Captain America, Incognito). Jon Lewis began True Swamp in 1992. It continues today. Other comics include Ghost Ship, Spectacles, and scripts for DC, Dark Horse, and Kodansha Publishing. Lewis came to prominence as one of a tight-knit wave of early ’90s Seattle cartoonists who brought new narrative ambition to alternative comics. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
The definitive presentation of a touchstone alternative comic, long out-of-print and now more vivid than ever.

Uncivilized Books Trans Terra
Towards a Cartoon Philosophy

Tom Kaczynski
Introduction by Kevin Huizenga
Trans Terra is a mutant memoir that melds comics, politics, and philosophy into a heady brew exploring work, creativity, emergence of the new, and the possibility of utopia. The author’s journey begins in the frigid wastelands of contemporary consumer culture. Like a surreal HMS Beagle, Trans Terra meanders through time and space exploring archipelagos real and imagined. Prominent stops include Soviet Siberia, Communist Poland, Plato’s Atlantis, nineteenth-century New York, and Sir Thomas More’s Utopia. Arriving on the polluted shores of collapsing global civilization, Tom K glimpses the faint light of utopia beyond the veil of Apocalypse. Taking cue from Salvador Dali’s paranoiac-critical method, the author unearths improbable connections between thinkers as disparate as Ignatious Donnelly, Alvin Toffler, Rem Koolhaas, Slavoj Žižek, and many others. Translated into several languages, Trans Terra is a comic book manifesto for the post-capitalist-crisis world. Tom Kaczynski (a.k.a. Tom K) is an Ignatz-nominated cartoonist, designer, illustrator, writer, teacher, and publisher. His comics have appeared in Best American Nonrequired Reading, Mome, Punk Planet, The Drama, and many other publications. Beta Testing the Apocalypse, a collection of his Mome stories, was published by Fantagraphics Books in July 2012. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with his partner Nikki and their two black cats.

Wave Books Thunderbird
Dorothea Lasky

“In lines that remind me of the way William Carlos Williams insisted that only the imagination gives us access to reality, Lasky’s poems evoke a practice of living, as bloody and awful and lovely as living can ever be.”—Julia Bloch, Bitch “The beautiful thing about Lasky, in all her work, but particularly here, is her ability to create that same sense of earnestness, the sense that she is telling you a secret.”—InDigest Magazine, InDigest Picks Go, brave and gentle reader, with Dorothea Lasky to the “purple motel / where the bird lives.” Go with her, as you have willingly gone down the dark passages before, with her bare-faced poems for guidance. Thunderbird’s controlled rage plunges into the black interior armed with nothing but guts and Lasky’s own fiery heart to light the way. Baby of air You rose into the mystical Side of things You could no longer live with us We put you in a little home Where they shut and locked the door And at night You blew out And went wandering . . . Dorothea Lasky is also the author of Black Life and Awe, both from Wave Books. She lives in New York.

In Time’s Rift (Im Zeitspalt)
Ernst Meister
Translated by Graham Foust and Samuel Frederick
“[Meister’s work] . . . is not a peaceful, divine perception but rather a distillation of despair. . . . Derangement seems almost justified.”—Times Literary Supplement Ernst Meister’s brief, afflicted poems attend to the writer’s lifelong obsessions with being and mortality. First published in 1976 and appearing for the first time in English in its entirety, it is a collection equal parts philosophical rigor and lived experience. We had a face-off in the light. Dust floated around us, tenderly.

White Pine Press Notes from the Journey Westward
Joe Wilkins

“Wilkins’ poems are savage and beautiful, full of hard-won lives and a godawful tenderness. In this book Manifest Destiny is more than political rhetoric— it’s a call to find the limits of survival. It has dust-stunned men, hardscrabble women, and a patient devil, sharpening his teeth.”—Traci Brimhall “For Wilkins, the American West is no theme park or romantic diorama. He offers an earnest glimpse into past and present landscapes that are real and imagined, mourned and celebrated and witnessed—for these are human landscapes.”—Michael McGriff Joe Wilkins is the author of The Mountain and the Fathers and Killing the Murnion Dogs.

Tzveta Sofronieva and Chantal Wright

“Listen carefully. . . . She has something to say.”—Joseph Brodsky “Tzveta Sofronieva’s poetry sparkles. Her memories go from Homer and Dostoyevski to Charlie Chaplin’s dance steps. Above all Sofronieva is a mythological poet. Each narration is a Cavafian voyage, never completed in order to wonder. The lucent version by Chantal Wright captures the verve and fluid images of Sofronieva’s poetry.”—Willis Barnstone, judge Tzveta Sofronieva was born in Sofia in 1963 and lives in Berlin, Germany. She is the author of eight poetry books and a short story collection, and was the winner of the first Cliff Becker Prize for Translation.

Zephyr Press Twelve Stations
˙ Tomasz Róz ycki
Translated by Bill Johnston

“Although the past is a constant theme in Róz ycki’s work, the present erupts ˙ with no less urgency . . . he witnesses the ant-like unimportance of human beings viewed from a cosmic perspective.”—Helen Vendler, Harvard University The hero of the mock poem, Grandson, leaves his hometown of Opole, in the western Polish region of Silesia, to organize a family reunion in the Ukraine where his family had lived before World War II—before being forcibly resettled along with many thousands of other Poles. In this, his sixth book, Tomasz Róz ycki talks back, both to history and to important literary predecessors such ˙ as Czesław Miłosz and Adam Mickiewicz, in language that is as playful as it is masterful. Twelve Stations is a masterful work of contemporary world poetry by one of its most outstanding practitioners. In 2004 Twelve Stations won the prestigious Koscielski Foundation Prize and was named best Book of the Spring 2004 by the Raczynski Library in Poznan and its translator Bill Johnston received the 2008 Found in Translation Award. Tomasz Róz ycki also has received the Krzysztof Kamiel Baczynski Prize ˙ (1997), the Czas Kultury Prize (1997), The Rainer Maria Rilke Award (1998), and the Joseph Brodskie Prize from Zeszyty Literackie (2006), and has been nominated twice for Poland’s most prestigious literary award, the NIKE Prize (2005 and 2007).

Zephyr Press Paul Klee’s Boat
Anzhelina Polonskaya
Translated by Andrew Wachtel

Unlike many of her contemporaries, Anzhelina Polonskaya did not receive a classic Russian literary education, so her work is considerably more idiosyncratic and less anchored in tradition. This book, her first collection in English translation since 2005, includes her cycle “Kursk,” an oratorio requiem with music by David Chisolm that will be performed across Australia and the United States. Anzhelina Polonskaya was born in Malakhovka, a small town near Moscow, Russia. She began to write poems seriously at the age of eighteen. Between 1995 and 1997 she lived in Latin America, working as a professional ice dancer. Her first book of verse Svetoch Moi Nebesny (My Heavenly Torch) appeared in 1993. Eventually deciding to leave ice skating, and to devote herself full-time to literature, Polonskaya consistently has been one of the freshest voices writing on both the Russian and world stage. Andrew Wachtel is the president of the American University of Central Asia in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Previously he was dean of The Graduate School and director of the Roberta Buffett Center for International and Comparative Studies at Northwestern University. A fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and the author of numerous publications, he is also a translator from Russian, Bosnian/ Croation/Serbian, and Slovene. He translated Anzhelina Polonskaya’s previous collection, A Voice (Northwestern University Press, 1995).
One of Russia’s most accomplished younger poets writes with a complex synaesthesia of sound and memory.

Zephyr Press Wind Says
Bai Hua
Translated by Fiona Sze-Lorrain

“Subtle and compelling, Bai Hua is among the best in contemporary Chinese poetry.”—David Der-wei Wang, Harvard University “Fish” Unfathomable, the fish can’t sing swimming from silence to silence It needs things, it needs to speak but it stares blindly at a stone The strength of endurance is too precise Senility urges it to walk the road of kindness What is it? Image of a people or an act of soundless immersion? The face of grievance veers toward shadow the silence of death toward error Born as metaphor to clarify a fact: the throat where ambiguous pain begins Considered the central literary figure of the post-Obscure (post-“Misty”) poetry movement during the 1980s, Bai Hua was born in Chongqing, China, in 1956. After graduating from Guangzhou Foreign Language Institute, he taught at various universities before working as an independent writer. His first collection of poems, Expression (1988), found immediate critical acclaim. A highly demanding writer, Bai Hua has a small but selective poetic output: between the mid-’80s and 2007 Bai Hua wrote fewer than one hundred poems, most of which continue to command a large audience across China. After a silence of more than a decade, he began writing again in 2007. This bilingual selection is a comprehensive overview of Bai Hua’s writing career. Fiona Sze-Lorrain writes and translates in French, English, and Chinese. Her recent work includes Water the Moon (Marick Press, 2010). Co-director of Vif Éditions and one of the editors at Cerise Press, she is also a zheng concertist.

Zuccotti Park Press
Brooklyn, New York

Inspired by the transformation of Zuccotti Park into a liberated space for organizing, advocacy, dreaming, art, free speech, and creative community, Zuccotti Park Press and its Occupied Media Pamphlet Series is founded to extend that spirit through the printed word and join in the advocacy of social change through public participation in debate, protest, and direct democracy. Produced by Adelante Alliance, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit that serves the Spanish-speaking immigrant community, the goal of the new press is to produce accessible, affordable, pamphletsize works by well-known and emerging voices who are inspired by a vision for a new society. Producing timely titles that address ignored, taboo, or under-discussed issues necessary for greater public participation will be emphasized along with occasional works of the imagination, poetry, and indigenous culture. Bilingual English/Spanish editions will be explored. We celebrate the printed word, the tradition of the pamphlet, and the important role that bookstores play in protecting free speech and creating community. To quote Angela Davis, who will contribute a title to the series, “We transform the meaning of occupation. We turn occupation into something that is beautiful, something that brings community together, something that calls for love and happiness and hope.” The occupation of tent camps has ended. Join us to occupy the conscience of the nation. We look to bookstores to support our new effort!

Zuccotti Park Press Occupy
Noam Chomsky

“The conscience of the nation.”—The Guardian Since its appearance in Zuccotti Park in September 2011, the Occupy movement has spread to hundreds of towns, cities, and college campuses across the United States. To date, more than 6,500 people have been arrested in 111 US cities, a number that grows daily. By early 2012 it was cliché to say the movement had shifted the national conversation—it has. No longer occupying small tent camps, the movement now occupies the national conscience as its messages spread organically from street protests to op-ed pages to the White House itself. From the movement’s onset, Noam Chomsky has supported its critique of corporate corruption and encouraged its efforts to increase civic participation, economic equality, democracy, and freedom for the 99%. Through talks and conversations with movement supporters, Occupy presents a crystallization of Chomsky’s latest thinking on the cornerstone issues, questions, and demands that are driving ordinary Americans to protest. How did we get to this point? How are the wealthiest 1% influencing the nation? How are the financial crisis and our political system linked? How has corporate personhood impacted the country and why should it be stopped? How can we get money out of politics? What would a genuinely democratic election look like? How can we redefine basic concepts like “growth” to increase equality and quality of life for all? Born of the moment, red hot, accessible, affordable, and designed to fit in your back pocket, Occupy is positioned to reach a wide national readership.

Zuccotti Park Press Occupying Language
Marina Sitrin and Dario Azzellini

Praise for Marina Sitrin’s previous works: “‘Another world is possible’ was the catch-phrase of the World Social Forum, but it wasn’t just possible; while the north was dreaming, that world was and is being built and lived in many parts of the global south. With the analytical insight of a political philosopher, the investigative zeal of a reporter, and the heart of a sister, Marina Sitrin has immersed herself in one of the most radical and important of these other worlds and brought us back stories, voices, and possibilities.”—Rebecca Solnit “Through her deeply respectful documentary editing, Marina Sitrin has produced a work that embodies the values and practices it portrays.” —Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis While the global Occupy movement is widely seen as unprecedented, its language and organizing practices are shaped and inspired by diverse historical precedents in the United States and around the world. Marina Sitrin and Dario Azzellini introduce the reader to the theory and practices of the movement and explore linkages and connections toward the dream of a common language of struggle, justice, democracy, and liberation. Marina Sitrin is an author and activist. An early organizer of the Occupy movement, she has been interviewed in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Democracy Now! and more. Dario Azzellini is an activist, writer, and filmmaker. He is a lecturer at the Johannes Kepler University (Linz, Austria) and holds PhDs in political science and sociology. His latest book, together with Immanuel Ness, is Ours to Master and to Own.
An exploration of how key terms and words from other movements can help shift consciousness and connect communities of struggle.
