AK Press Against Equality
Queer Revolution, Not Mere Inclusion

Edited by Ryan Conrad

Queerness is more than who you’re sleeping with. It’s a point of social contention, something that’s different by definition, that’s deeply subversive and proud of it! Against Equality is an argument in support of those who dare to be different, a collection of essays that stand in stark contrast to an ever-growing LGBT mainstream working towards assimilation, and, arguably, cultural erasure. Never ones to shy away from a fight, the authors included in this timely collection address the trifecta of political rifts within the LGBT community: marriage, the military, and prisons. “Equality” is a concept inextricably linked to positive social progress, but as the authors collected here suggest, it’s a concept that often functions as a smoke screen to hide a world riddled with systemic injustice. Take marriage, for instance: is the right to marry whomever we want really a worthy goal for the queer community? What if this perceived “right” is actually a wrong? Against Equality suggests that seeking inclusion in a system that’s based on institutional and economic exploitation is an unacceptable path forward. How will the ability to fight in wars of imperialism help to liberate and empower LGBT people around the world? The striking down of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” only makes a larger population complicit in a system that treats queer bodies, both nationally and internationally, as less than human. With contributions from Kate Bornstein, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, John D’Emilio, and others, this book is designed to stir debate.
When “rights” go wrong. Radical queer and trans critiques of mainstream gay and lesbian politics.

AK Press The End of the World as We Know It?
Crisis, Resistance, and the Age of Austerity

Edited by Deric Shannon

POLITICAL SCIENCE / BUSINESS & ECONOMICS May 5½ x 8¼ | 416 pp Trade Paper US $21.00 | CAN $22.99 978-1-84935-186-7 USC eBook available

The End of the World as We Know It? explores the origins and ramifications of the Great Recession, as well as the experiences of those living through it. Crisis is a recurring trait of capitalism, and a necessary one for the economy to continue as it does. However, each economic crisis is treated like an unprecedented and unexpected surprise. How can we learn from these capitalist catastrophes unless we connect historical patterns to contemporary conditions? Capitalist crisis is not an accident; it occurs, in fact, by design. This collection brings together personal accounts and analysis to illustrate the struggle of individuals and communities in search of survival. Weaving these stories together is a necessary step forward in uniting against continued economic exploitation. From solidarity networks to revolutionary unionism and student strikes, this book unsettles our understanding of economics. The struggle against austerity measures has swept the globe, and a new resistance is emerging: the Maple Spring in Montreal, Occupy in the United States and abroad, and much of Latin America and Europe have erupted in vocal protest against the status quo. This book amplifies those voices into a resounding call for action and organization. In essays divided into five sections—Origins, Effects, The Response of the Dispossessed, The Ruling Class Response, and Education and the Student Response—the contributors outline the overall systematic nature of the problem, as well as tangible, equally systematic strategies for community economic defense and sustainability.
Neither austerity nor reform will save us. Real alternatives mean real change.

AK Press Grabbing Back
Essays Against the Global Land Grab

Edited by Alexander Reid Ross

In the last decade of the twentieth century, cultivated land around the globe increased at a staggering rate of 4,693,000 acres a year. By 2030, the World Bank projects an increase in the rate of growth to 14,820,000 acres of newly developed land every year—most of which will be in the global South. If, as Vandana Shiva writes, land is life, then it goes without saying that land is also power. Land struggles are always about power—colonial and corporate power, to be sure, but also people power, the power of the dispossessed to rise up and call for an end to the global land grab. Grabbing Back documents this struggle, bringing together a wealth of essays and analysis documenting the contemporary politics of cultivation and control. In this unprecedented collection of new writings, on-the-ground activists join forces with critically acclaimed scholars and journalists, bringing to light a body of research and analysis that lays bare the vast reaches of the global land grab: from ecotourism in Sri Lanka to landless workers in Brazil to tar sands in Montana and urban decay in Detroit, Michigan. Beautifully edited by Alexander Reid Ross of EarthFirst!, and featuring contributions by Vandana Shiva, Guillermo Delgado-P, Noam Chomsky, Max Rameau, Grace Lee Boggs, Michael Hardt, Ahjamu Umi, Scott Crow, Ben Dangl, EarthFirst! Sri Lanka, and others, Grabbing Back is an eye-opening and honest assessment of the state of the land today, and what lies ahead in the years to come.
Resisting the commodification and consumption of land from foreclosed homes to annihilated rainforests.

AK Press Zen Economics
Rob Urie

Economics are often considered a drab and meticulous study reserved for those with a few degrees under their belt. Zen Economics proposes a different approach: instead of leaving economics to the “experts,” we should embrace economics as part of our everyday lives, and merge our intellectual understanding with our intrinsic desire to be unified with the natural world. What if economics was an intuitive field that considered the needs of the many against those of the few? Capitalist economics is premised on a narrow, anti-historical concept of what people are and what motivates us. Its broader context is Western “idealism,” the view that the life of “the mind,” as conceived in Western philosophy, is the fundamental locus and determinant of existence. “Zen,” as taken from the dialogue between D.T. Suzuki and philosopher Martin Heidegger, removes the partitions that separate “us” from each other, “the world,” and ourselves. Rob Urie develops a post-Marxian (non-deterministic) materialism to reimagine the fundamental premises of economics and places them into debate over key economic issues—work and labor, income and wealth distribution, environmental degradation and animal rights.

AK Press The New Brazil
Regional Imperialism and the New Democracy

Raúl Zibechi
Translated by Ramor Ryan
In the midst of a rapidly shifting global economy, Brazil has emerged as a powerful new player on the geopolitical stage. Against all odds, the Latin American nation managed, in just three years, to repay 2002’s $15.5 billion IMF bailout loan thanks to aggressive economic restructuring and a series of alliances that have placed it at the center of political and economic power in the region. From the outside, Brazil is a poster child for neoliberal capitalism. Yet inside the country, the lives of the Brazilian people are still marked by vast inequities in wealth and access to social services—a striking disparity with the nation’s newfound power in the global economy. In June of 2013, protests against the increasing costs of public transportation swelled to mass demonstrations against the Rousseff government’s failure to address this disparity, leading many to wonder whether the popular movements in Brazil may be just powerful enough to shift the nation’s influence towards a wholly new economic model based in regional integration. The New Brazil explores this disparity. Will the nation serve as the glue that holds together the Latin American states, distancing themselves from the neoliberalism of the United States and Canada? Or will Brazil simply become another world superpower, able to subject the rest of Latin America to its will? Only time will tell. Raúl Zibechi is a journalist and social-movement analyst based in Montevideo, Uruguay. He is the author of numerous books including Dispersing Power and Territories in Resistance, both published by AK Press.
Meet the new boss. A guide to shifting political and economic forces in an emerging world power.

Akashic Books The White House
JaQuavis Coleman

Cass is a known high roller in the city and his reign has lasted for years in the heroin trade. People on the street call his gorgeous estate the “White House” because of his political connections and power in the city. His home is also known to be untouchable and off-limits to the local hoodlums. But all this changes the night he meets Draya, an opportunistic beauty queen. She meticulously orchestrates a robbery which goes smoothly—until the tables turn. Five people walk into the house, but only one walks out. On that night, pandemonium breaks out at the White House—murder, double-crossing, and sexual escapades intermingle before an unforgettable twist that will shock readers. JaQuavis Coleman, the New York Times best-selling author of the Dopeman’s Trilogy series, first burst onto the scene at the age of eighteen and quickly became a nationwide literary phenomenon. He and his wife Ashley Antoinette have coauthored numerous “street fiction” classics. With the birth of the Cartel series, the “Ashley and JaQuavis” brand took off. In 2013, twentyseven-year-old Coleman was honored by Ebony magazine as being one of the top one-hundred most influential African Americans in the country.
One house, one robbery, one mistake. Sexual intrigue and violent events intermingle in this tense urban thriller.

Akashic Books Black Lotus
K’wan

“K’wan steadily builds to a frantic, movie-worthy climax.”—Entertainment Weekly NYPD detective Andrew Jackson, known as “Stone Wall” for his hard-nosed policing tactics, is the subject of an ongoing investigation by Internal Affairs. He’s one bad decision away from losing his badge and possibly serving jail time when he’s handed what could be the case to save his career: the “Black Lotus” killings. Bodies are popping up all over the city, and the only clues the police have to go on are the lotus flowers left behind at the scene of every crime and the tie that binds all the victims—they were all known criminals. Stone Wall is hounded by a beautiful young journalist, Kahllah El-Amin, who is determined to get the scoop on the police corruption scandal he’s involved in. Kahllah breaking the story will either clear Stone Wall’s name or be the match that burns him. K’wan is a best-selling, award-winning author of over a dozen titles, including Gangsta, Road Dawgz, Street Dreams, Hoodlum, Hood Rat, Section 8, Animal, and Animal II. He has been featured in Vibe, Entertainment Weekly, and Time and is a twotime recipient of Street Lit Book Award Medals. K’wan currently resides in New Jersey where he is working on his new novel.

Akashic Books Swing
Miasha

“Miasha is a writer to watch.”—Publishers Weekly Lyssa and Jacob, owners of the swingers’ club Puss and Boots, have been living an active swingers lifestyle ever since their two children moved out of the house. Every couple months they hire a “live-in,” a girl who, in exchange for room, board, and a paycheck, provides sex on demand. Danielle and Stewart met each other at a swingers’ club eight years ago. They fell in love and married, soon becoming regulars at Puss and Boots. JuJu and Ferrari are the epitome of opposites attract. She’s fifty, he’s thirty. She is wild and outgoing and he is reserved and laid-back. They’ve been going to Puss and Boots since the club opened. Tori and Kevin always talked about experimenting with threesomes and group sex but never made time to act on their thoughts and wishes. Well, it’s Kevin’s thirtieth birthday, and what better gift than a surprise visit to Puss and Boots? Swing is the story of the treacherous and steamy collisions in the lives of these four couples. Roped with sultry scandals and lustful lies, this novella will propel readers to their highest highs and drop them to their lowest lows.

Her books have received rave reviews in national media such as BET, CBS, CN8, The Wendy Williams Experience, Essence, Vibe, Jet, and Elle.

Akashic Books H.N.I.C.
Albert “Prodigy” Johnson with Steven Savile

“A gritty, fast-paced tale of revenge. . . . Tight, terse prose harkens back to pulp fiction of the 1950s. . . . The work is a breath of fresh air from lengthy, trying-too-hard-to-shock street lit and is an excellent choice for all metropolitan collections.”—Library Journal, starred review, Pick of the Month Pappy tries to break out of the game before the head of his crew, Black, gets them all killed. Against his better judgment Pappy agrees to do one last job, but only because it’s the price of his freedom. Further developing the stark realism and uncompromising streetwise narratives of his lyrics, H.N.I.C. cements Prodigy’s position as one of the foremost chroniclers of contemporary urban life. Simultaneously a fast-paced crime drama and an engrossing, unsentimental moral tale, H.N.I.C. peers into the dark heart that underpins the codes of loyalty and friendship, betrayal and vengeance. With H.N.I.C., Prodigy inaugurates Infamous Books, a new imprint whose mission is to connect readers worldwide to crime fiction and street lit authors both familiar and new.

Akashic Books Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night
Barbara J. Taylor
Edited by Kaylie Jones

Almost everyone in town blames eight-year-old Violet for the death of her nine-year-old sister Daisy. Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night opens on September 4, 1913, two months after the Fourth of July tragedy. Owen, the girls’ father, turns to drink and abandons his family, according to the chorus of churchwomen who periodically comment on the town’s affairs. The mother, Grace, falls victim to the alluring powers of Grief, an imagined figure who has seduced her off-and-on since childhood. Violet forms an unlikely alliance with nine-year-old Stanley Adamski, a motherless outcast. The pair finds solace in the ministrations of the lonely Widow Lankowski and companionship in an ornery mule named Sophie, until disaster strikes at the mine where Stanley works as a breaker boy. Hope comes to town in the form of a revival led by evangelist and former baseball player Billy Sunday. When an unexpected blizzard strands 2,500 people, including Owen, in a temporary tabernacle with the zealot preacher and his brand of “muscular Christianity,” Grace goes into premature labor at home, where she’s forced to rely on Violet for the first time since Daisy’s death. Violet manages to deliver the baby, saving both her mother and her new sister, while Owen finds his own salvation in the middle of a snowdrift. Inspired by a haunting family story, Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night uses several historical events, including Scranton’s “Billy Sunday Snowstorm,” to lend authenticity to the novel. Real-life incidents are blended with fiction to show how grace can be found in the midst of tragedy. Barbara J. Taylor was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and teaches English in the Pocono Mountain school district. She has a master’s degree in creative writing from Wilkes University. She still resides in the “Electric City,” two blocks from where she grew up.
A page-turning debut novel set in Scranton, Pennsylvania, during the height of coal mining, vaudeville, and evangelism.

Akashic Books Copy Cat
and a Litter of Other Cats

David Yow

ART August 10 x 10 | 160 pp Color illustrations throughout Trade Cloth, Picture Book US $23.95 | CAN $26.50 978-1-61775-270-4 W* eBook available

David Yow’s cat portraits, captured here for the first time in book form, are bold, striking, hilarious, and beautiful to look at. Each portrait is based around a pun, but they capture so much more than wordplay. All cat lovers will find something to relish in this gorgeous coffee table book, which is the perfect gift for cat enthusiasts, animal lovers, and anyone with a playful sense of humor. About the book, David Yow says: “I love cats. Always have. The only time I didn’t have a cat was a brief hell in Chicago where I lived in an apartment whose landlord didn’t allow them. At that place, I had a life-sized cardboard cutout of a cat which I named Toody. I also love wordplay. I’m the only adult I hang out with who still gets a kick out of puns. I make up palindromes. I used to write songs and poems (these days, I leave that for the songwriters and poets); in this book of cat-pun drawings, I have made a concerted effort to come up with ideas that range from really funny to really amusing. The entire litter of animals in this book are line drawings that are ‘colored in’ with photographic textures, and each cat is dropped into a photographic setting. Yep, that’s the truth.” David Yow is an artist, cartoonist, and musician who is best known as the singer of the bands the Jesus Lizard—arguably the best and most popular indie-rock band of the 1990s—and Scratch Acid. He lives in Los Angeles, California.
An irresistible and hilarious book of cat cartoon portraits for all cat lovers, old, young, and in-between.

Alice James Books Money Money Money Water Water Water
Jane Mead
“It’s a beautiful, seamless book that never stops gathering force—one in which the strength, brilliance, and movement of the phrase is the ultimate ecosystem.”—Cole Swensen “I feel utterly transported in Mead’s presence, surrounded by—and imbued in—her language.”—Nick Flynn A striking combination of the spiritual and political, Money Money Money | Water Water Water explores the enormous impact that widespread environmental destruction makes on our way of life. With prophetic disquietude, Jane Mead’s inquiry into the interconnectedness of our choices exposes our existence as paradox. Her poems beseech us to consider the consequences of our collective actions on the planet. Cove, ***** I came out of the dark hills and the dark hills own me. I have no patience for the sticky-minded stratums. The concern of the comfortable for the comfortable makes me sick. Meanwhile, the red leaves spin on their axes of air, different leaves now, different axes, same big death. And wouldn’t we love to shrug now and just say sorry? Apparently not say sorry. Let’s not talk about it. I wish I lived in an opium cloud. Jane Mead is the author of three previous collections of poetry, most recently The Usable Field, also from Alice James Books. She is the recipient of grants and awards from the Whiting, Guggenheim, and Lannan foundations. For many years poet-in-residence at Wake Forest University, she now farms in northern California and teaches in the Drew University low-residency MFA program in poetry and poetry in translation.

Worldly, wily, wise: Mad Honey Symposium is an extraordinary debut.”—Terrance Hayes “[Mad Honey Symposium] has all the delicacy of [Mao’s] earlier writing—but now there’s also a gritty, world-wise sense of humor that gives her work heavyweight swagger.”—Dave Eggers Mad Honey Symposium buzzes with lush sound and sharp imagery, creating a vivid natural world that’s constantly in flux. From Venus flytraps to mad honey eaters, badgers to empowered outsiders, Sally Wen Mao’s poems inhabit the precarious space between the vulnerable and the ferocious—how thin that line is, how breakable—with wonder and verve.

Alice James Books Split
Cathy Linh Che

“Split crosses borders, exposing truths and dreams, violations of body and mind, aligning them until the deep push-pull of silence and song become a bridge. And here we cross over into a landscape where beauty interrogates, and we encounter a voice that refuses to let us off the hook.”—Yusef Komunyakaa In this stunning debut, we follow one woman’s profoundly personal account of sexual violence against the backdrop of cultural conflict deftly illustrated through her parents’ experiences of the Vietnam War, immigration, and its aftermath. By looking closely at landscape and psyche, Split explores what happens when deep trauma occurs and seeks to understand what it means to finally become whole. From “The German word for dream is traume.”: When my mother whispered, Has anyone touched you there? I had to pick. Ivan, I said. I was seven. The training wheels were coming off. Between the couch and wall, the ceiling was white with popcorn bits. The boys stood and watched. I lay there, my eyes open like a doll’s. Someone said, Let me try. He rode on top then abruptly stopped. The boys laughed, and then, they stood me up. Cathy Linh Che is a poet from Los Angeles, California. She has received scholarships and fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center at Provincetown, Hedgebrook, Kundiman, Poets & Writers, Inc., and Poets House. She is currently co-editor of an anthology called Inheriting the War and a founding editor of Paperbag. She lives and teaches in Brooklyn, New York.
Yusef Komunyakaa calls Split “a brave, delicate, and terrifying account of what we do to each other.” Marketing Plans

And Other Stories Sworn Virgin
Elvira Dones
Translated by Clarissa Botsford

“Elvira Dones is among the best of Albania’s writers and her publication in English is excellent news.”—Ismail Kadare According to Albanian tradition, if there are no male heirs, a woman can “choose” to become a man—and enjoy the associated freedoms—as long as she swears herself to virginity for life. Clever young Hana is ushered home by her uncle’s impending death. Forced to abandon her studies in Tirana, she takes an oath and assumes the persona of Mark, a hardened mountain peasant—her only choice if she wants to be saved from an arranged marriage. Mark’s decision to shake off her oath after fourteen years and to re-appropriate what is left of Hana’s body and mind by moving to the United States creates a powerful rupture. The transition to a new life as a woman striving to shed the burden of her virginity is fraught with challenges, and the first-generation assimilated cousins with whom Hana tentatively undertakes her new life make her task no easier. Sworn Virgin is the first novel Elvira Dones wrote in Italian. She adds her voice to the burgeoning new generation of “blended” Italians, who deliberately adopt a “dirty” immigrant/exile approach to their language. Born in Durrës, Albania, Elvira Dones is a novelist, screenwriter, and documentary filmmaker currently based in the United States. After seven novels in Albanian, she wrote the two most recent in Italian, her adopted language. Sworn Virgin is the first of Dones’s books to be translated into English.
Independence in the Albanian mountains means a vow to become a man—independence in America means reclaiming her womanhood.

The Matiushin Case
Oleg Pavlov
Translated by Andrew Bromfield
The Matiushin Case is among the most powerful recent works of Russian fiction. Deriving, like Captain of the Steppe (2013, And Other Stories UK), from Oleg Pavlov’s experience of the declining Soviet Union, it follows Matiushin, a young man damaged by brutality at home and then in the army. Drawing on Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s “labor-camp writing,” Oleg Pavlov builds a unique tension between the horrors of conscription and the dreamlike, timeless mode of his writing. Matiushin’s “crime and punishment” thus emerge with compelling inevitability; the victim turns killer. This hell is above all psychological— and no less universal than those of Dante or Dostoevsky.
FICTION July 5 x 7¾ | 260 pp Trade Paper US $15.95 | CAN $17.50 978-1-908276-36-0 USC

Oleg Pavlov is one of the most highly-regarded contemporary Russian writers. The Matiushin Case won the Russian Booker Prize in 2002.

“Birtwhistle shows that he has rhetorical power of the sort epitomised by James Fenton.”—Peter Porter “John Birtwhistle is a master craftsman. . . . The poet’s eye and ear are generally faultless. In every poem language is made to work hard; image and thought are wholly fused, with economy and precision. The technical skills, which are entirely admirable, may be deployed in hilarious playfulness. . . . They are also at the service of more disturbing subjects.”—Ian Hughes, Poetry Review Like many good poets, John Birtwhistle publishes sparingly. In his first collection for more than twenty years, he produces a dazzling array of poems on a range of historical, political, and personal subjects. These lucid, witty, tender poems, by turns serious and comic, are full of felicitous surprises and unexpected turns of imagination.

Michael Hamburger
Edited by Dennis O’Driscoll

“Few English poets of our day can have come to their craft with the cultural and linguistic richness of Michael Hamburger.”—Stephen Romer in Agenda For many years the Irish poet Dennis O’Driscoll was a friend and admirer of the English poet, critic, and translator Michael Hamburger. After Hamburger’s death in 2007, he determined to compile a “Reader,” giving representative selections from Hamburger’s varied writings. His choice illuminates the breadth and depth of Hamburger’s concerns, spanning autobiographical writings, interviews, poems, German translations, and a range of critical essays on writers from Friedrich Hölderlin, Georg Büchner, Heinrich Heine, and Georg Trakl to T. S. Eliot, Samuel Beckett, Gottfried Benn, Bertolt Brecht, and other moderns and contemporaries. It is a unique compendium of a wonderful writer’s essential work. Michael Hamburger was born in Berlin in 1924 and moved to Britain in 1933. He published many books of poetry, several collections of essays, a classic study of modernist poetry since Charles Baudelaire, The Truth of Poetry, and an autobiography. He translated from, among others, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Hölderlin, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Paul Celan. His awards included the Goethe Medal of the German Federal Republic for services to German literature and the European community’s first European Translation Prize for Poems of Paul Celan, now in its third edition. He died at home in Suffolk in 2007. Dennis O’Driscoll (1954–2012) published nine collections of poetry, a book of essays, two collections of literary quotations, and Stepping Stones: Interviews with Seamus Heaney. He received numerous honors and awards both in Ireland and the United States.

Artists profiled in the book are from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Asia, and their crafts include knitting, crocheting, sewing, textiles, pottery, and ceramics. There’s the Brooklyn writer who creates large-scale site-specific knitted installations; the British woman who runs sewing and quilting workshops for community building and therapy; the Indonesian book maker and organizer of a DIY craft center; and the Oxford, England, cultural theorist and dress designer. A wonderful sense of optimism and possibility pervades the book: the inspiring notion that being crafty can really make the world a better place. Betsy Greer is a writer, crafter, researcher, and the author of Knitting for Good!: A Guide to Creating Personal, Social and Political Change Stitch by Stitch. She also runs the blog craftivism.com and believes that creativity and positive activism can save not only the soul, but also the world.

Arsenal Pulp Press Gender Failure
Ivan E. Coyote and Rae Spoon

“Being a girl was something that never really happened for me.”—Rae Spoon Ivan E. Coyote and Rae Spoon are accomplished, award-winning writers, musicians, and performers; they are also both admitted “gender failures.” In their first collaborative book, Ivan and Rae explore and expose their failed attempts at fitting into the gender binary, and how ultimately our expectations and assumptions around traditional gender roles fail us all. Based on their acclaimed 2012 live show that toured across the United States and in Europe, Gender Failure is a poignant collection of autobiographical essays, lyrics, and images documenting Ivan and Rae’s personal journeys from gender failure to gender enlightenment. Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, it’s a book that will touch LGBTQ readers and others, revealing, with candor and insight, that gender comes in more than two sizes. Ivan E. Coyote is the author of six story collections and the award-winning novel Bow Grip, and is co-editor of Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme. Ivan frequently performs at high schools, universities, and festivals across North America. Rae Spoon is a transgender indie musician whose most recent CD is My Prairie Home, which is also the title of a new National Film Board of Canada documentary about them. Rae’s first book, First Spring Grass Fire, was a Lambda Literary Award finalist in 2013.
A powerful collaboration between two extraordinary performer-writers on matters of gender and identity.

Arsenal Pulp Press Look Who’s Morphing
Tom Cho

First published to acclaim in Australia, Look Who’s Morphing by Asian Australian writer Tom Cho is a funny, fantastical, often outlandish collection of stories firmly grounded in popular culture. Often with his family, the book’s central character undergoes a series of startling physical transformations, shapeshifting through figures drawn from film and television, music and books, porn flicks and comics. He is Godzilla, a Muppet, a gay white male stud, and Whitney Houston’s bodyguard; the Fonz, a robot, the von Trapp family’s caretaker, a Ford Bronco 4x4—and in the book’s lavish climax, a one-hundredfoot-tall guitar-wielding rock star performing for an adoring troupe of fans in Tokyo. Throughout the stories, there is a pervasive questioning of the nature of identity, whether cultural, racial, sexual, gender, or all of the above, and the way it is constructed in a world filled with the white noise of pop culture. Look Who’s Morphing is a stylish, highly entertaining literary debut in which nothing— not even one’s body—can be taken for granted.

An American Novel

Norman Lock
“One could spend forever worming through [Lock’s] magicked words, their worlds.”—The Believer “Lock’s writing is beautiful, with clean, clear, perfect sentences . . . seducing the reader with language and narrative into a fully realized alternative world.”—Shelf Awareness for Readers, starred review Huck Finn and Jim float on their raft across a continuum of shifting seasons, feasting on a limitless supply of fish and stolen provisions, propelled by the currents of the mighty Mississippi from one adventure to the next. Launched into existence by Mark Twain in 1835, they have now been transported by Norman Lock through three vital, violent, and transformative centuries of American history. As time unfurls on the river’s banks, they witness decisive battles of the Civil War, the betrayal of Reconstruction’s promises to the freed slaves, the crushing of the Native American nations, and the electrification of a continent. While Jim enters real time when he disembarks the raft in the Jim Crow South, Huck finally comes of age when he’s washed up on shore during Hurricane Katrina. An old man in 2077, Huck takes stock of his life and narrates his own story, revealing our nation’s past, present, and future as Mark Twain could never have dreamed it. The Boy in His Winter is a tour-de-force work of imagination, beauty, and courage that re-envisions a great American literary classic for our time. Norman Lock is the award-winning author of Love Among the Particles. He lives in Aberdeen, New Jersey.

Bellevue Literary Press Invisible Beasts
Sharona Muir

“Intellectually provocative, knowledgeable, and literate. As our lives become increasingly determined by technology, we will need to turn to such thinkers as [Sharona Muir] to guide us through its dangers and pleasures.” —Alan Lightman, author of Einstein’s Dreams Sophie is an amateur naturalist with a rare genetic gift: the ability to see a marvelous kingdom of invisible, sentient creatures that share a vital, symbiotic relationship with humankind. To record her observations, Sophie creates a personal bestiary and, as she relates the strange abilities of these endangered beings, her tales become extraordinary meditations on love, sex, evolution, extinction, truth, and self-knowledge. In the tradition of E.O. Wilson’s Anthill, Invisible Beasts is inspiring, philosophical, and richly detailed fiction grounded by scientific fact and a profound insight into nature. The fantastic creations within its pages—an animal egg that uses natural cold fusion for energy, a species of vampire bat that can hear when their human host is lying, a continent-sized sponge living under the ice of Antarctica—illuminate the role that all living creatures play in the environment and remind us of what we stand to lose if we fail to recognize our entwined destinies. Sharona Muir is the author of The Book of Telling: Tracing the Secrets of My Father’s Lives. The recipient of a Hodder Fellowship and National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, her writing has appeared in Granta, Orion magazine, Virginia Quarterly Review, Paris Review, and elsewhere. She is a professor of creative writing and English at Bowling Green State University. Invisible Beasts is her first novel.

Bellevue Literary Press Palace Envy
Florence Behind the Façade

Allison Levy

When Allison Levy, a Renaissance scholar on sabbatical in Florence, saw an advertisement for an apartment in the Palazzo Rucellai, she couldn’t believe her luck. An architectural masterwork that can be found in every art history textbook and travel guide to Italy, it was a revered pilgrimage site for her, but it wasn’t until she dwelled within its walls that the palazzo began to yield its secrets. Witty and illuminating, Levy’s colorful prose brings six centuries of the palace’s designers and denizens to life via captivating tales of Leon Battista Alberti, the architect of Palazzo Rucellai; Giovanni Rucellai, an extravagant socialite banker who commissioned the project; Filippo Brunelleschi, the fifteenth-century genius who engineered Florence’s famous Duomo; and Alvise di Robilant, the aristocratic art dealer whose 1997 murder within the palace goes unsolved to this day. Levy’s own encounters with contemporary Florentines—including a romantic misadventure with an eccentric nobleman—link the past to the present and reveal some of the surprising ways “Old Europe” still enchants the hearts and minds of curious travelers. Allison Levy, an art historian specializing in the visual culture of early modern Italy, is the recipient of numerous grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Whiting Foundation, and the American Association of University Women, among others. Born and raised in New Orleans, she lives in New York.
Six centuries of intrigue—fortunes won and lost, passion, murder, and manners—enliven this “biography” of a celebrated Renaissance palazzo.

Bellevue Literary Press Starlight Detectives
How Astronomers, Inventors, and Eccentrics Discovered the Modern Universe

Alan Hirshfeld
“With this highly readable and cosmically accessible book, Alan Hirshfeld has done for the measurement of the cosmos what Dava Sobel did for the measurement of longitude. . . . Readers will never again look into the night sky the same way.”—Michael Shermer, author of The Believing Brain on Parallax: The Race to Measure the Cosmos In 1930, Edwin Hubble announced the greatest discovery in the history of astronomy since Galileo first turned a telescope to the heavens. The galaxies, previously believed to float serenely in the void, are in fact hurtling apart at incredible speed; the universe is expanding. This stunning discovery was the culmination of a decades-long arc of scientific and technical advancement. In its shadow lies an untold, yet equally fascinating, backstory whose cast of characters illuminates the gritty, hard-won nature of scientific progress. The path to a broader mode of cosmic observation was blazed by a cadre of nineteenth-century amateur astronomers and inventors, galvanized by the advent of photography, spectral analysis, and innovative technology to create the entirely new field of astrophysics. From William Bond, who turned his home into a functional observatory, to geniuses of invention such as Léon Foucault, Alan Hirshfeld reveals the incredible stories—and the ambitious dreamers—behind the birth of modern astronomy. Alan Hirshfeld, a professor of physics at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and an associate of the Harvard College Observatory, is the author of Parallax: The Race to Measure the Cosmos, The Electric Life of Michael Faraday, and Eureka Man: The Life and Legacy of Archimedes.
A wondrous tale of cosmic exploration and the colorful characters who ushered astronomy into the modern age.

Biblioasis Arms
The Culture and Credo of the Gun

A.J. Somerset
“A one-time soldier, Somerset paints a convincing picture . . . self-deprecating, gruff, curmudgeonly.”—The Globe and Mail “Rambling, tragic, and suprisingly funny.”—Quill & Quire The first book to bring ballistics and legal history to bear on gun culture in fiction and film, Arms is the study of a tormented symbol. How did the gun become both an icon of freedom and the badge of vigilantes? Protection against violent crime yet the instigator of it? The sportsman’s companion, the survivalist’s god? In a cultural history like no other, where Canadian hunter and gun lover A.J. Somerset critiques the careers of ideologues from S.L.A. Marshall through David Grossman—where he traces apocalyptic rhetoric from George Orwell to the Patriot Movement—where he discusses cop ethics, race crimes, domestic coercion, and school shootings—where he takes Quentin Tarantino to task for shoddy spray patterns, muses on John Steinbeck and armed labor strikes, and surveys the rise of fear-culture through the work of Hunter S. Thompson—Arms demonstrates again and again that it’s in the gun where North America’s most irresolvable tensions explode. Sharp-eyed, snarky, even-handed, and sportive, Arms is at once a gun lover’s tribute to the weapon he adores and a devastating commentary on the rifts it has come to represent. A.J. Somerset has been a soldier, a technical writer, a programmer, and a freelance photographer. His nonfiction has appeared in numerous outdoor magazines in Canada and the United States. His first novel, Combat Camera, won the Metcalf-Rooke Award.
Welcome to the gun book’s third wave: a novelist and gun-lover talks about the weapon in law, literature, history, and film.

Biblioasis All Saints
K.D. Miller

“One of Canada’s finest writers, able to probe deeper into the human heart than the best surgeon.”—National Post All Saints Anglican is one of the loneliest places on earth. It’s ugly, it’s small, it’s overshadowed by condos. The parishioners aren’t exactly close. And yet there they are, every week: the rector with the suicidal wife, the neurotic spinsters, the blue-rinses, the seekers and the newlyweds and the cradle Anglicans, all of them yearning for connection and privacy at once. Effortlessly written and candidly observed, All Saints is a moving collection of tremendous skill, whose stories illuminate the tenacity and vulnerability of modernday believers.

Glad and Sorry Seasons
Catherine Chandler
The second collection from the Howard Nemerov Sonnet Award–winning poet, Glad and Sorry Seasons explores the polarities that illuminate and cloud our lives by turn. Waiting Some nights I’ve seen a slice of silver slink across the room I now call home, above my makeshift bed—a rickety chair beside the snack machine. Close by, the elevators whirr and beep. I cannot, dare not, drift asleep, let down my guard, inviting shoulder taps, a whispered Sir, or dreams of her once vivid eyes that stare & stare & stare, dull, distant, hard. Thus I will will her through another day. Make crazy compromises. Pray.

Biteback Publishing Elvis Memories
The Real Presley—By Those Who Knew Him

Michael Freedland

This is not just another Elvis Presley biography, although it gets closer to the real Elvis story than many of the hundreds that have dealt with the life of the man his contemporaries have called “The King.” As the author Michael Freedland puts it in his introduction, “Everyone knows Elvis.” But not the way his close friends, employees, and others who entered his life knew him. For this is their story. Freedland interviews those who knew Elvis intimately, from the now elderly woman who was at school with him and whose parents foreclosed on the shack they rented, to Elvis’s mother when his father was in jail, to the maid who prepared his peanut butter sandwiches and hamburgers and watched him line up the girls he wanted to take to his bed. In between, we meet the black man who remembered sneaking into a local cinema with Elvis in defiance of Deep South race laws and members of the so-called “Memphis Mafia,” who went where he went, laughed when he laughed, and suffered when he suffered— and usually received a brand new Cadillac for their troubles. There’s also his doctor who denies giving him fatal doses of the drugs he collected along with the hamburgers. Writer and broadcaster Michael Freedland went all over the West Coast and South to talk to these people who shared Elvis’s life, telling the complex Presley story in a way more true to the real man than the usual collection of dates, film, and song titles.

Biteback Publishing Harry
The People’s Prince

Chris Hutchins

“A fascinating psychological insight into the forces that shaped the Playboy Prince.”—Daily Mail This is the story of Prince Henry, fourth in line to the British throne, and most popular member of the royal family outside the Queen. From a childhood born to a troubled marriage and scarred by the tragedy of the death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, to his brilliant public performances at the Diamond Jubilee, the London Olympics, and his brother’s wedding, this book charts the remarkable journey of a seemingly ordinary young man with an extraordinary destiny: once pilloried as a playboy prince who drank GBP200 cocktails with louche friends in London nightclubs, brawled with photographers, and wore a Nazi uniform to a fancy-dress party, then lauded following his first term of duty on the frontline in the most dangerous place on earth, southern Helmand in Afghanistan, from which he returned a hero. Written with the help of a wide range of people—from senior aides to humble members of staff, from aristocrats to bodyguards and protection officers, from friends of Harry’s to the not-so-friendly, from those who shared classrooms with him in boyhood to those he drank with, from girls he has loved and lost to soldiers who have served alongside him on the front line in Afghanistan—Harry: The People’s Prince is the story of a young man who has created a life for himself in contrast to the one set out for him by an accident of birth.
The life of Prince Harry, the most colorful and charismatic member of Britain’s royal family.

Biteback Publishing Pets by Royal Appointment
The Royal Family and their Animals

Brian Hoey

The Royals say they can do without many things, but not their animals. They are suspicious of practically everyone outside their own family, so the only creatures they really trust are not of the human variety. For countless monarchs and their consorts, cats, dogs, horses, even the occasional parrot, have acted as constant, faithful companions, unquestioning allies, and surrogate children for generations. The only time the Queen and Princess Anne have been known to shed tears in public was when one of their favorite horses died. And Her Majesty’s corgis, the most disliked creatures at Court, even have their own “royal” cemeteries in all the royal residences and each has its own “mini-palace” immediately outside their mistress’s sitting room in Buckingham Palace. Members of the royal family, from the Queen to her youngest grandchild, are taught to ride almost as soon as they can walk and, even at the age of eightysix, Her Majesty still rides every weekend at Windsor—and refuses to wear a hard hat. This engrossing book traces the fascination of the royals with their animals—including intimate details of each of the present and early members of the family’s favorite pets, with anecdotes relating to each of them and their idiosyncrasies. Pets by Royal Appointment makes essential reading for royal watchers and pet lovers alike.

Biteback Publishing Saving Gary McKinnon
A Mother’s Story

Janis Sharp

For ten years Gary McKinnon became the unwilling focus of Anglo–US diplomatic relations. A computer systems analyst living in London, he believed the US government was withholding vital information about the presence of UFOs. The unremarkable lives of he and his mother Janis changed dramatically one morning in March 2002 when Gary phoned to tell her that he had been arrested and was being interviewed about hacking into US government computers. Paul J. McNulty, the then-US Attorney for Virginia, announced that Gary was indicted in Alexandria, Virginia, on November 12 that year, and simultaneously announced that the United States intended to extradite him. Two years later the US government filed a request for Gary’s extradition and on June 7, 2005, he was arrested. Extradition to the United States seemed certain and so, fearing that Gary would kill himself rather than face being taken away to face seven counts of up to ten years each, Janis’s extraordinary battle began. Janis Sharp spent the following ten years fighting her son’s extradition. In October 2012 she finally won. This was a spectacular victory for Janis and spoke volumes about her relentless fight. Saving Gary McKinnon is the true story of a mother’s fight to save her son from living out the rest of his life behind bars. The US judiciary had all the might of the world’s greatest power. But it had not reckoned on Gary’s mother.

They were, however, very different personalities. Kingsley was charming, sociable, and completely amoral whilst Larkin was awkward and insecure. Their relationship with one another is fascinating in part because it provided the inspiration behind their work. In fact, parts of Lucky Jim were based on Larkin’s life, a fact the poet begrudged for the rest of his life.

Bitter Lemon Press A Dark Song of Blood
Ben Pastor

Praise for the Martin Bora series: “The tone of Liar Moon has a flu-like grimness, appropriate the 1943 setting. Pastor is excellent at providing details (silk stockings, movie magazines, cigarettes) that light up the setting.”—Booklist “Lumen’s plot is well crafted, her prose shap . . . a disturbing mix of detection and reflection.”—Publishers Weekly Rome, 1944. While the Allies are fighting their way up the Italian peninsula, Rome lives the last days of Nazi occupation. Their world is falling apart as the German Army, the Gestapo, and the SS vie for power while holding glittering and debauched parties. But this is also a time of Italian partisan attacks, arrests, and mass executions, all to the sound of Allied artillery bombardment just outside the walls of the city. Baron Martin von Bora, an officer in the Wehrmacht, has the complex and delicate task of solving not one, but three murders. A young German embassy secretary has “accidentally” fallen to her death from a fourth-floor window, and a Roman society lady and a headstrong cardinal of the Roman Curia are found dead in her apartment. The cardinal is personally known to Bora and, like the officer, secretly active in the resistance against the Third Reich. With Italian police inspector Sandro Guidi at his side, Bora sets off to establish the truth. Different as they are, the two men confront crime, war, and dictatorship in the awareness that the dignity of man comes at a price beyond all imagination.
Rome, 1944, the last days of Nazi occupation. A German officer investigates three murders in a city drenched in violence.

Bitter Lemon Press A Cut-Like Wound
Anita Nair

“Nair writes big, brave descriptions of one brutal murder after the next, relentlessly describing each death even as sub-inspector Santosh loses his breakfast over them.”—Time Out It’s the first day of Ramadan in heat-soaked Bangalore. A young man begins to dress: makeup, a sari, and expensive pearl earrings. Before the mirror he is transformed into Bhuvana. She is a hijra, a transgender seeking love in the bazaars of the city. What Bhuvana wants, she nearly gets: a passing man is attracted to this elusive young woman—but someone points out that Bhuvana is no woman. For that, the interloper’s throat is cut. A case for Inspector Borei Gowda, going to seed, and at odds with those around him including his wife, his colleagues, even the informers he must deal with. More corpses and Urmila, Gowda’s exflame, are added to this spicy concoction of a mystery novel. Most intriguing is the grim world of Bhuvana. Her hijra fantasies, emotions, and hopes are etched in a way that is chilling yet oddly touching. Some mysteries remain till almost the end, for instance Bhuvana’s connection with the wealthy, corrupt Corporator Ravikumar, who lives in a mansion as grand as the Mysore Palace and controls whole districts of Bangalore. Anita Nair lives in Bangalore and is a prize-winning author. Her novel Ladies Coupe, published in the United States by St. Martin’s Press, is a feminist classic which has been translated in thirty languages all over the world. This is her first crime novel.
A series of murders in the bazaars of Bangalore, set in the mysterious world of hijras, the local transgenders.

Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925–2006) was one of Scotland’s leading twentiethcentury public intellectuals, and famously one of its most brilliant and combative correspondents. His letters raise issues of particular and widespread interest both within Scotland and further afield. His correspondence with Stephen Bann, the English poet and academic, have a very special place in this context. These letters present in a clear and commensurable form the development of his ideas about poetry and art, and increasingly about sculpture and gardening, over this critical five-year period of his creative life. The letters begin when Bann was still a student at Cambridge, and Finlay was living in considerable hardship in Edinburgh, though he already had a significant international reputation as a poet. They reveal in fascinating and intimate detail the poet’s developing creative process, and also record his often turbulent relationship to the worlds of literature, art, and critical journalism. When he settles in Lanarkshire, he begins to develop the ideas that will result in the creation of the world-famous sculpture garden known as Little Sparta. This book, edited, introduced, and annotated by Bann himself, is a unique and compelling self-portrait of the man who is now recognized not only as a great poet, but also as a major artist and one of the most original garden designers of modern times. Stephen Bann is a poet, historian, and cultural critic. He is an emeritus professor of the history of art at Bristol University, and the author of numerous books and articles.
The revealing letters of probably the most significant Scottish public intellectual and artist of the late twentieth century.

Black Balloon Publishing Nine Rabbits
Virginia Zaharieva
Translated by Angela Rodel

“Gutsy, fresh and vivid, this story of one woman’s brave quest through life will take you on a wild ride.”—Kapka Kassabova, author of Street Without a Name and Twelve Minutes of Love I turned up in the seaside town of Nesebar—an inconvenient four-year-old grandchild, just as my grandmother was raising the last two of her six children, putting the finishing touches on the house, ordering the workmen around and doing some of the construction work herself—thank God for that, because at least it used up some of her monstrous energy. Otherwise who knows what would’ve become of me. In Bulgaria during the height of communism in the 1960s, six-year-old Manda survives her cruel grandmother and rural poverty by finding sheer delight in the world—plump vegetables, garden gnomes, and darkened attic corners. The young Manda endures severe beatings, seemingly indestructible. But as a middle-aged artist in newly democratic Bulgaria, she desperately tries to feed her damaged soul with intrepid creativity and humor. Virginia Zaharieva was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1959. She is a writer, psychotherapist, feminist, and mother. Her novel Nine Rabbits is among the most celebrated Bulgarian books to appear over the past two decades and the first of Zaharieva’s work made available in North America. Angela Rodel is an award-winning translator. Born and educated in the United States with degrees in linguistics from Yale and the University of California, Los Angeles, she currently resides in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Black Balloon Publishing We Were Flying to Chicago
Kevin Clouther

“Kevin Clouther’s collection of wry, funny, big-hearted stories is utterly satisfying and unexpected, like scratching an itch you didn’t know you had.” —Rebecca Johns The phone rang. I picked it up, and the voice roared into my right ear. I said, What do you want? What do you want? I said this five, six, seven times, and then I hung up the telephone. It didn’t ring again, which made me irrationally proud. This ended up depressing me. Nervously, I looked for something to pick up and then drop. I picked up an empty coffee mug, but it felt too light. This wasn’t my desk. This wasn’t even my building. In this striking debut collection, characters find unexpected moments of profound insight while navigating the monotony of daily life. Here we find a man who drives to the wrong mountain, a hubcap cleaner who moonlights as a karaoke star, and a deliveryman whose urgent letters have no willing recipient. While lulled by the deceptively simple rhythm of the ordinary, Kevin Clouther offers the instant before momentous change—the view over the cliff, the intake of breath before a decision, a glimpse of stark vulnerability, of faith and hope. Kevin Clouther was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and grew up on Cape Cod and in south Florida. He holds degrees from the University of Virginia and Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where he completed his thesis under Marilynne Robinson. He teaches creative writing at Stony Brook University, where he coordinates the program in writing and reading series, and at Johns Hopkins. He lives in Floral Park, New York.
A debut collection in which characters find unexpected moments of profound insight while navigating the monotony of daily life.

BOA Editions, Ltd. The Keys to the Jail
Keetje Kuipers
The Keys to the Jail continues Elizabeth Bishop’s tradition of the art of losing, but delves deeper into the self-accusatory nature of loss and blame. The bereft female speakers in these poems blame themselves for everything—the harsh words of failed love, the aging of a once-beautiful body, even their own voracious desires—and come face-to-face with many things our culture loathes: an unsanitized death, a sagging breast, the sense of isolation in a crowded world. Making use of such obsessive forms as the villanelle and pantoum, Keetje Kuipers ultimately brings us to a contemporary landscape of acquiescence, one without redemption or forgiveness. In Medias Res The ocean is a fist, inside of which I am allowed to be heartbroken. From here, the collarless dogs on the beach don’t look so unloved. Or, if they are, they don’t seem to mind. I can’t hear the church bells or train whistle— they might not be sounding at all. And the little caps on the waves beat against me in flickers like wings of cabbage whites. I can love any part of myself: arms with salmon belly undersides, ears full of sand, fish-ladder tongue. Of course I’m drowning. I meant it that way. Keetje Kuipers’s debut collection, Beautiful in the Mouth, won the A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize. She holds a BA at Swarthmore College and an MFA from the University of Oregon. A former Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford University, she is currently an assistant professor at Auburn University.
This highly anticipated second collection boldly addresses female anger, reaching beyond traditional roles for a new place in the world. Also Available

BOA Editions, Ltd. Revising the Storm
Geffrey Davis
Foreword by Dorianne Laux
This debut collection by Cave Canem fellow Geffrey Davis burrows under the surface of gender, addiction, recovery, clumsy love, bitterness, and faith. The tones explored—tender, comic, wry, tragic—interrogate male subjectivity and privilege, as they examine their “embarrassed desires” for familial connection, sexual love, compassion, and repair. Revising the Storm also speaks to the sons and daughters affected by the drug/crack epidemic of the ’80s and addresses issues of masculinity and its importance in family. Some nights I hear my father’s long romance with drugs echoed in the skeletal choir of crickets. Geffrey Davis teaches at Penn State University.

The World Shared
Dariusz So´ snicki
Translated with an introduction by Piotr Florczyk and Boris Dralyuk
Dariusz Sos ´ nicki’s poems open our eyes to the sublime just beneath the surface of the mundane: a train carrying children away from their parents for summer vacation turns into a ravenous monster; a meal at a Chinese restaurant inspires a surreal journey through the zodiac; a malfunctioning printer is a reminder of the ghosts that haunt us no matter where we find ourselves. Among the perpetrators and victims, buzzed or wasted to the bone, gliding without their blinkers on in the ruts of the national fate—they’re not at home. Dariusz Sos ´ nicki is an award-winning poet, essayist, and editor in Poland.

Breakaway Books The Shattered Peloton
The Devastating Impact of World War I on the Tour de France

Graham Healy

On June 28, 1914, 145 riders lined up in a suburb of Paris at 3:00 am to start the first stage of the Tour de France. The race, which had been founded just a decade earlier, had grown to become the biggest bicycle race in the world. The riders did not know it at the time, but as they raced, an event was taking place on the opposite side of Europe which would change all of their lives forever: Gavrilo Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, triggering World War I. While racing went on in France, a diplomatic crisis had started that would try but fail to avert war. Shortly after the finish of the race, France mobilized its troops and went to war with Germany. The organizer of the Tour de France, Henri Desgrange, despite being fifty years old, enrolled in the army shortly afterwards and encouraged the cyclists to do the same. The war would see over sixteen million soldiers and civilians die. Many of the riders from that Tour de France did not return, and three previous winners of the race would be among those killed in action. The Shattered Peloton tells the story of that Tour de France and what happened to the top cyclists of the day during the course of the war. A fascinating book for anyone with an interest in cycling or military history.
How World War I decimated the ranks of elite cyclists, as they fought and died for their countries.

Bywater Books Olive Oil and White Bread
Georgia Beers

Praise for Georgia Beers’s 96 Hours: “96 Hours is a page-turner. . . . It is a riveting story rich with detail.” —EDGE Boston What happens to lovers after the happy-ever-after moment? What goes on behind the closed doors of a relationship once the commitment is made? What does romance turn into when the hands of time keep turning? Olive Oil and White Bread is a novel that dares to answer those questions. Angie Righetti is the daughter of a sprawling but close-knit Italian American family. She’s out and they’re proud. Jillian Clark’s family is the white bread to Angie’s olive oil. Stoic and emotionally buttoned up, they don’t want to think about Jillian’s sexuality. It’s 1988 when they move in together, on the brink of starting their careers. Like every couple at the start of their life together, they expect to live happily ever after. And for twenty-three years life happens: they change jobs, buy a house, get a dog, and deal with money issues and the death of a parent. They fight, love, cry, play, make mistakes, have regrets, and try to be good to each other and to everybody else. Like most of us they tumble into a routine that turns into a rut that leads to distraction and danger. In 96 Hours Georgia Beers gave herself the challenge of writing a romance set in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. And she succeeded, coming up with a book that garnered awards and great reviews. She returns with a new challenge— writing a romance that starts, rather than ends, with the happy-ever-after.
A spicy Italian meets plain WASP in a romance that starts, rather than ends, with the happy-ever-after moment.

Bywater Books The Lost Women of Lost Lake
Ellen Hart

“Engaging . . . sometimes bittersweet.”—Publishers Weekly “This engrossing, thought-provoking entry . . . proves that long-running series don’t have to lose steam.”—Library Journal Restaurateur and part-time P.I. Jane Lawless and her best friend, Cordelia, head north to help a friend on crutches. Tessa and her partner Jill run the Thunderhook Lodge, the premier resort on Lost Lake. And while Tessa clearly needs Jane and Cordelia’s assistance, she isn’t exactly acting all that grateful. Tessa has been on edge ever since a man who claims to be a journalist arrived in Lost Lake with an old photograph and some questions for her and her neighbors. He is looking for two aging radicals wanted for the 1960s murder of a policeman. After seeing the photo, Lyndie LaVasser calls Tessa in a near panic as she recognizes the woman in the photo—every time she looks in the mirror. Tessa knows all too well that we can’t escape our own pasts and sometimes we get drawn into the pasts of other people. In The Lost Women of Lost Lake—the most engrossing mystery yet from Lambda and Minnesota Book Award–winning author Ellen Hart—Jane’s only hope of protecting her friends from the secrets that are surfacing all around them is to uncover the whole truth before anyone else can. Ellen Hart is the author of twenty-five mysteries. She is a five-time winner of the Lambda Literary Award and a three-time winner of the Minnesota Book Award for Best Popular Fiction.
Diane Mott Davidson meets Sue Grafton when Jane Lawless must save a friend from the repercussions of her radical youth.

Central Recovery Press Rage
The Legend of “Baseball Bill” Denehy

Bill Denehy with Peter Golenbock

Bill Denehy was at the top of his game . . . until he threw a pitch that changed the course of his life. A home-run bio about a gifted pitcher whose National League career held promise until a hard slider to Willie Mays injured his shoulder, Rage chronicles Denehy’s injury-plagued career in major league baseball and the loss of his vision due to injections used to keep him in the game. Denehy holds nothing back as he shares the rage he felt his whole life, his lost dreams, his descent into addiction, and eventually finding peace when he entered recovery. His experience will resonate with athletes, baseball fans, those who struggle with addiction, and those who know someone who does. Bill (“Baseball Bill”) Denehy is a former major league baseball player for the New York Mets. He later coached the University of Hartford and was a minor league pitching coach for the Boston Red Sox and a radio announcer. He is now in long-term recovery and belongs to the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association. Peter Golenbock is one of the nation’s best-known sports authors. He has written eight New York Times bestsellers, including The Bronx Zoo (with Sparky Lyle), Number 1 (with Billy Martin), Balls (with Greg Nettles), Personal Fouls, American Prince (with Tony Curtis), and Presumed Guilty (with Jose Baez).
Baseball, addiction, and recovery are chronicled in this story of a gifted athlete who almost had it all.

Central Recovery Press Wisdom from the Couch
Knowing and Growing Yourself from the Inside Out

Jennifer L. Kunst, PhD

A useful guide to understanding the mysteries of the mind and how we can change for the better. How can it be that perfectly intelligent people do such obviously counterproductive things so much of the time? Why do we do the things we know we shouldn’t do, and why do we fail to do the things we know we should do? The simple answer to these questions is that the unconscious mind greatly influences all that we do, and this is the basis for the psychoanalytic idea that insight leads to change. Written by an experienced clinical psychologist with a knack for describing complex ideas in a lively and easy to comprehend way, Wisdom from the Couch will change the way you think about your internal and external life. Jennifer L. Kunst, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and certified psychoanalyst in private practice. She is a senior faculty member at the Psychoanalytic Center of California in Los Angeles, where she is chair of the Curriculum Committee. She is also an adjunct associate professor at the Graduate School of Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. She writes a blog on psychologytoday.com, A Headshrinker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
A simple yet sophisticated model of personal growth that can lead to lasting change, drawn from the truths of psychoanalysis.

Chin Music Press School Board
Michael Freedman

Set in Houston, Texas, in the last year of the twentieth century, School Board is a roaring comic allegory for the coming post-9/11 world. At the center of the tale is quixotic high school senior class president Tucker “Catfish” Davis, who has never encountered a fight he didn’t take on. Events soon have Tucker challenging school board incumbent Walker Moore, a senior executive at an Enron-like company. Tucker, inspired by a long line of Louisiana populist heroes, uses Huey Long–style tactics to protect the “little folks” of Houston. In the wild days that follow, Tucker gains traction in his long-shot bid for school board by guerilla campaigning against a tax reinvestment zoning bill that his opponent, local leaders, and Walker’s energy company all support. With the help of his classmates, an indicted Louisiana governor resembling Edwin Edwards, and an ex-Green Beret oilman trained in waging unconventional warfare, Tucker makes it the school board race of the century. Written by a veteran of the recent war, School Board is an entertaining debut novel that heralds the arrival of a sharp satirical voice attuned to the absurdities of contemporary America. It is also the story of Houston, revealing the diversity, madness, and glory found by wildcatting generations in that mythical land on the bayou. Mike Freedman lives in Houston, Texas, where he was born and raised. After graduating college, he served in the Army in the infantry and in the Special Forces as a Green Beret.
Tucker Davis, an eccentric teenager, runs against an energy executive for a school board seat in Houston, Texas, in 1999.

Cinco Puntos Press Cold Type
Harvey Araton

In times of change, American novelists return to old themes. In Cold Type—as in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman—a son and his father struggle to hold onto what they think is right. It’s mid-1990s; and “cold type” technology, a.k.a. computerized typesetting, wreaks havoc among workers in the newspaper industry. A fabulously wealthy Briton buys the New York City Trib and immediately refuses to negotiate with the truck drivers’ union. In solidarity, all the other blue collar unions take to the streets. Jamie Kramer is a reporter for the Trib. His father is a hardcore shop steward (unusual for a Jew in Irishdominated unions) from the old day of “hot type,” but who has become a typographer in a world he doesn’t understand. His father expects Jamie not to cross the picket line. It would be an act of supreme disrespect. But that’s not so easy for Jamie. His marriage has fallen apart, he desperately needs his paycheck for child support, and he needs to make his own life outside the shadow of his father. Harvey Araton is a celebrated sports reporter and columnist for the New York Times. He authored the New York Times best-seller Driving Mr. Yogi: Yogi Berra, Ron Guidry, and Baseball’s Greatest Gift; plus When the Garden Was Eden: Clyde, the Captain, Dollar Bill, and the Glory Days of the New York Knicks. Araton also finds time to serve as adjunct professor in sports writing at Montclair State University in New Jersey where he lives.
“You mean, you crossed the picket line right past your daddy and he took a swing at you?”

Cinco Puntos Press The Amado Women
Désirée Zamorano

Southern California is ground zero for upwardly mobile middle-class Latinas. Matriarchs like Mercy Amado—despite her drunken, philandering (now ex-) husband—could raise three daughters and become a teacher. Now she watches helplessly as her daughters drift apart as adults. The Latino bonds of familia don’t seem to hold. Celeste, the oldest daughter who won’t speak to the youngest, is fiercely intelligent and proud. She has fled the uncertainty of her growing up in Los Angeles, California, to seek financial independence in San Jose. Her sisters did the same thing but very differently. Sylvia married a rich but abusive Anglo, and, to hide away, she immersed herself in the suburbia of her two young daughters. And Nataly, the baby, went very hip into the free-spirited Latino art world, working on her textile creations during the day and waiting on tables in an upscale restaurant by night. Everything they know comes crashing down in a random tragic moment and Mercy must somehow make what was broken whole again. Désirée Zamorano says that she was aghast by the right-wing political snickering arising from Sonia Sotomayor’s “wise Latina” remark. And she is appalled by stereotypical rendering of Latinas in mainstream literature, saying that true-to-life middle-class Latinas are invisible in the fabric of American culture. Zamorano is a playwright, Pushcart Prize nominee for fiction, and the director of the Community Literacy Center at Occidental College. She also collaborates with InsideOut Writers, a program that works with formerly incarcerated youth. She lives in Pasadena, California.
Four Latinas struggle for their piece of the American Dream, but will it evaporate when confronted with family tragedy?

City Lights Publishers The Violence of Organized Forgetting
Thinking Beyond America’s Disimagination Machine

Henry Giroux

“Giroux is society’s teacher and conscience.”—Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina “America has become amnesiac,” says Henry Giroux, “a country in which forms of historical, political, and moral forgetting are not only willfully practiced but celebrated.” In a series of essays on the intersections of political power, popular culture, and new methods of social control, Giroux explores how neoliberal discourse and the ongoing commodification of everyday life constitute an active assault on public memory, chip away at civil rights, and diminish the public’s capacity to speak and act in its own interests. Alarmed at the increased authoritarianism creeping into all levels of national experience, Giroux looks to flashpoints in current events to reveal how the institutions of government and business are at work to promote mass quietism and passivity. For Giroux, widespread acceptance of the militarized lockdown of Boston crystallizes the degree to which society has come to accept martial law and mass surveillance as inevitable necessities of contemporary American life. Overthe-top repression of social movements like Occupy reveals an increasing intolerance and suspicion of those who challenge state and corporate power, while the violence marketed to youth as entertainment promotes further disconnection from a sense of cohesive community. Giroux’s book is a passionate call for public engagement as a means to push back against restrictions on freedom and the passive acceptance of a frightening status quo. Henry Giroux currently holds the Global TV Network chair professorship at McMaster University. A prolific author, he writes regularly for Truthout.
Marketing Plans A sweeping critique of neoliberalism, public amnesia, inequality, and the rise of an authoritarian surveillance state.

City Lights Publishers Woman with Guitar
Memphis Minnie’s Blues

Paul Garon and Beth Garon
Foreword by Jim O’Neal

“Woman with Guitar is a delight.”—Dave Roediger, author of The Wages of Whiteness Universally recognized as one of the greatest blues artists, Memphis Minnie (1897–1973) wrote and recorded hundreds of songs. Blues people as diverse as Muddy Waters, Johnny Shines, Big Mama Thornton, and Chuck Berry have acknowledged her as a major influence. At a time when most female vocalists sang Tin Pan Alley material, Minnie wrote her own lyrics and accompanied her singing with virtuoso guitar playing. Thanks to her merciless imagination and dark humor, her songs rank among the most vigorous and challenging popular poetry in any language. Woman with Guitar is the first full-length study of the life and work of this extraordinary free spirit, focusing on the lively interplay between Minnie’s evolving artistry and the African American community in which she lived and worked. Drawing on folklore, psychoanalysis, critical theory, women’s studies, and surrealism, the authors’ explorations of Minnie’s songs illuminate the poetics of popular culture as well as the largely hidden history of working-class women’s self-emancipation. This revised and expanded edition includes a wealth of new biographical material, including photographs, record contracts, sheet music, and period advertisements, which further vivify this portrait of an African American musical legend. Complete, updated discography included. Paul Garon is a co-founder of Living Blues magazine and author of The Devil’s Son-in-Law and Blues and the Poetic Spirit. Beth Garon is a painter and collagist. The Garons operate a rare-book business in Chicago, Illinois, and have been associated with the US surrealist movement for many years.
A vivid portrait of one of the blues’ most influential female artists, and the popular poetry of her lyrics.

City Lights Publishers Lunch Poems
Pocket Poets Series No. 19 Anniversary Edition

Frank O’Hara
Foreword by John Ashbery

“Frank O’Hara was the laureate of the New York art scene. . . . A Pan piping on city streets, he luxuriates in the uninhibited play of his imagination.” —The New York Times Book Review Lunch Poems, first published in 1964 by City Lights Books as number nineteen in the Pocket Poets series, is widely considered to be Frank O’Hara’s freshest and most accomplished collection of poetry. Edited by the poet in collaboration with Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Donald Allen, who had published O’Hara’s poems in his monumental The New American Poetry in 1960, it contains some of the poet’s best known works including “The Day Lady Died,” “Ave Maria,” and “Poem [Lana Turner has collapsed!].” These are the compelling and formally inventive poems—casually composed, for example, in his office at the Museum of Modern Art, in Times Square during his lunch hour, or on the Staten Island Ferry en route to a poetry reading—that made him a cult hero. This new fiftieth-anniversary edition contains facsimile reproductions of poems from the original typescript, along with a selection of previously unpublished correspondence between City Lights publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti and O’Hara, and between Donald Allen and O’Hara that shed new light on the preparation of Lunch. Frank O’Hara was born in 1926 in Maryland and grew up in Massachusetts. He was a leader of the New York School of poets, a group that included John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, and Barbara Guest. He died in 1966.

Dia Felix

“Nochita shimmers with humor and delight. She burns with stark raving intelligence.”—Mary Gaitskill Daughter to a divorced new age guru, Nochita wanders through the cracks of California’s counter-culture, half feral child, half absurdist prophet. When tragedy strikes she is sent to live with her father, a working-class cowboy with a fragile grasp on sobriety and a dangerously mean fiancée. Stuck with adults chillingly unable to care for her, Nochita takes to the streets, a runaway with nothing to run from, driven forward by desperation, hope, and an irrepressible wonder. Nochita is a poetic novel dazzling in its detail, stylistically daring, by turns hallucinatory, darkly funny, and brutally real. At its heart is the singular voice of Nochita, tender and fierce, alone and alive and utterly unforgettable. Dia Felix is a writer and filmmaker and an award-winning digital media producer for museums (SF Exploratorium, Museum of Arts and Design). She currently teaches and mentors teens in experimental documentary filmmaking. She is the founder and editor of Personality Press. Born and raised in California, she currently lives in New York.

City Lights Publishers Haiti Glass
Lenelle Moïse

“Lenelle Moïse brings fierce passion.”—The New York Times “Haiti Glass is a magnificent collection of poetry and prose. Part mantra, part lamentation, part prayer, this incredible book puts us wholly in the presence of an extraordinary and brave talent, whose voice will linger in your heart and mind long after you read the last word of this book.”—Edwidge Danticat This is prose and verse that moves deftly between girlhood memories of growing up as a Haitian immigrant in the suburbs of Boston, to bearing witness to brutality and catastrophe, to intellectual, playful explorations of pop culture enigmas like Michael Jackson and Jean Michel Basquiat. Lenelle Moïse is at home everywhere and bears witness to all, be it the presence of a skinhead on the subway, a newspaper account of unthinkable atrocity, or the “noose loosened to necklace” of desire. The cut of Haiti Glass lays bare a world of resistance and survival, mourning and lust, poverty, triumph, and prayer. Lenelle Moïse is an award-winning poet, playwright, essayist, and nationally touring performance artist who creates jazz-infused, hip-hop bred, politicized texts about Haitian American identity, creative resistance, and the intersection of race, class, gender, sexuality, memory, and spirit. Her poems and essays are featured in several anthologies, including Word Warriors: 35 Women Leaders in the Spoken Word Revolution and We Don’t Need Another Wave: Dispatches from the Next Generation of Feminists. Her writing has also been published in the Utne Reader, Make/Shift Magazine, Left Turn, and numerous other magazines and journals. She currently lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she was the 2010–2012 Poet Laureate. While her screenplays and plays have been published to acclaim, this is her long-awaited first book of poetry.
With rhythmic poetry and intimate prose, Haiti Glass offers an unflinching look at disaster, desire, and death-defying love.

Editor Seth Perlow has assembled a text with over one hundred emendations, resulting in the first version of Tender Buttons that truly reflects its author’s intentions. These changes are detailed in Perlow’s “Note on the Text,” which describes the editorial process and lists the specific variants for the benefit of future scholars. The book includes facsimile images of some of Stein’s handwritten edits and lists of corrections, as well as an afterword by noted contemporary poet and scholar Juliana Spahr. A compact, attractive edition suitable for general readers as well as scholars, Tender Buttons: The Corrected Centennial Edition is unique among the available versions of this classic text and is destined to become the standard. Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) was one of the most important and innovative American writers of literary modernism, as well as one of the great art collectors and salon hosts of the period. A pioneering lesbian writer, Stein lived most of her life in Paris but became a celebrity in the United States with the publication of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas (1933). Seth Perlow teaches English at Oklahoma State University. Juliana Spahr teaches writing at Mills College.

The Tranquilized Tongue
City Lights Spotlight No. 11

Eric Baus
In the tradition of French poets like Francis Ponge and René Char, The Tranquilized Tongue offers a series of prose meditations in the form of surrealist declaratives, each sentence unfolding like an alchemical riddle in which sounds, images, and figures appear, dissolve, and re-emerge to offer a glimpse of a complex unconscious roiling below the surface of everyday reality. Eric Baus received an MFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where he studied with Peter Gizzi. Author of three previous poetry collections, Baus lives in Denver, Colorado, where he teaches writing and literature, works on digital audio archives of poetry, and co-edits Marcel Chapbooks.

Coach House Books I Could See Everything
The Paintings of Margaux Williamson

Margaux Williamson

“Like all my favorite art, these paintings bring out that covetous feeling. I want to wear them, dance to them, show them off as an example of how life feels to me: dirty, dumb, terrifying, spiritual, and so funny.”—Miranda July “In a time of ironic detachment, Margaux Williamson is a painter of extreme candor, but the violence of her vision is cut with wonder and love. Sometimes she recalls Phillip Guston, sometimes she’s like a Pittsburgh-born van Gogh; usually she reminds me of nobody at all. Seeing as she sees feels like waking up.” —Ben Lerner From the artist the Toronto Star called “one of the best artists of her generation,” and whose 2010 movie Teenager Hamlet was praised by the likes of James Franco and William Shakespeare scholar Stephen Greenblatt, comes a breakthrough work for a world where the image of a painting on one’s desktop is as real as the painting hanging in the gallery. Margaux Williamson has conceived of a place that never existed, called The Road at the Top of the World Museum, located in the far north, and populated it with her most accomplished paintings yet. With essays by Chris Kraus, Leanne Shapton, David Balzer, and Mark Greif, and reproductions of eighty paintings, this, her first book, transcends the boundary between the authentic and the imaginary, and collapses the distinction between art show, museum catalog, and document of something astonishing that never was. Margaux Williamson was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and lives in Toronto, Ontario. She’s co-author of the cultural criticism website Back to the World.
A first catalog—of an imaginary exhibition at an imaginary gallery—from a rising art star.

Coach House Books The Stonehenge Letters
Harry Karlinsky

“Just when you think there’s nothing new to be done with the novel, along comes a book that pushes the form in a fresh direction.”—John Harding, author of Florence and Giles “[Karlinsky] weaves together the actual and the imaginary with consummate skill. Knowing that it is a fiction makes me want it even more to be true.” — The Scotsman While carrying out historical investigations at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm, Sweden, a psychiatrist makes an unusual discovery. Among the unsolicited self-nominations in the museum’s “Crackpot” file, there are eight letters addressed to Mr. Ragnar Solman, executor of Alfred Nobel’s will. Remarkably, each is crafted by a different Nobel laureate—including Rudyard Kipling and Marie Curie—and each is an explanation of why and how Stonehenge was constructed. Diligent research eventually uncovers that Alfred Nobel, intrigued by a young woman’s obsession with the mysterious landmark, added a secret codicil to his will, “a prize—reserved exclusively for Nobel laureates—was to be awarded to the person who solves the mystery of Stonehenge.” Weaving together a wealth of primary documents—photographs, letters, wills—The Stonehenge Letters acts as an archive of a fascinating secret competition, complete with strange but illuminating submissions and a contentious prizeawarding process. Harry Karlinsky is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of British Columbia. His first novel, The Evolution of Inanimate Objects (HarperCollins UK), was longlisted for the Wellcome Trust Book Prize.
The archives of a secret competition, sponsored by Alfred Nobel, to “solve” Stonehenge—as compelling as the monument itself.

Coach House Books Pastoral
André Alexis

Praise for André Alexis’s previous books: “Astonishing . . . an irresistible, one-of-a-kind work.”—Quill & Quire “Alexis [has an] astute understanding of the madly shimmering, beautifully weaving patterns created by what we have agreed to call memory.”—Ottawa Citizen There were plans for an official welcome. It was to take place the following Sunday. But those who came to the rectory on Father Pennant’s second day were the ones who could not resist seeing him sooner. Here was the man to whom they would confess the darkest things. It was important to feel him out. Mrs Young, for instance, after she had seen him eat a piece of her macaroni pie, quietly asked what he thought of adultery. André Alexis brings a modern sensibility and a new liveliness to an age-old genre, the pastoral. For his very first parish, Father Christopher Pennant is sent to the sleepy town of Barrow. With more sheep than people, it’s very bucolic—too much Barrow Brew on Barrow Day is the rowdiest it gets. But things aren’t so idyllic for Liz Denny, whose fiancé doesn’t want to decide between Liz and his more worldly mistress Jane, and for Father Pennant himself, who greets some miracles of nature—mayors walking on water, talking sheep—with a profound crisis of faith. André Alexis was born in Trinidad and grew up in Canada. His debut novel, Childhood, won the Books in Canada First Novel Award, the Trillium Book Award, and was shortlisted for the Giller Prize and the Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. His books include Asylum and Ingrid and the Wolf.
A master novelist turns his hand to questions of faith—and talking sheep.

Coach House Books MxT
Sina Queyras

“Sina Queyras is a poet to read and reckon with.”—Lambda Literary Review MxT, or “Memory x Time,” is one of the formulas acclaimed poet Sina Queyras posits as a way to measure grief. These poems mourn the dead by turning memories over and over in their hands, by invoking other poets, by appropriating science, by studying the history of elegy. Devastating, cheeky, allusive, hallucinatory: this is Queyras at her most powerful. All the gods know is destinations. I have raised A glass, my eye, your hook. Let’s face it the world Is a shrinking place and hungry: too much grief To feed. I float away from you on hard Covers. I step out on the stacked hours. Words If they were soil how I would throw them back into the Compost pile and wait for spring. Those “this is how It is,” speeches appear and later diamonds soft as bullets.

Sina Queyras is the author of the Lambda Award–winning Lemon Hound, Expressway (shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award), and the novel Autobiography of Childhood (shortlisted for the Amazon First Novel Award). She often writes for the Poetry Foundation and runs the online journal Lemon Hound (lemonhound.com).

Coffee House Press The Devil’s Snake Curve
A Fan’s Notes From Left Field

Josh Ostergaard

The Devil’s Snake Curve offers an alternative American history, in which colonialism, jingoism, capitalism, and faith are represented by baseball. Personal and political, it twines Japanese internment camps with the Yankees; Walmart with the Kansas City Royals; and facial hair patterns with militarism, Guantanamo, and the modern security state. An essay, a miscellany, and a passionate unsettling of Josh Ostergaard’s relationship with our national pastime, it allows for both the clover of a childhood outfield and the persistence of the game’s service to those in power. America and baseball are both hard to love or leave in this by turns coruscating and heartfelt debut. Josh Ostergaard holds an MFA in creative writing from the University of Minnesota and an MA in cultural anthropology. He has been an urban anthropologist at the Field Museum and now works at Graywolf Press.
A humorous, historical, and hirsute miscellany that’s the baseball book Howard Zinn would have written if he hated the Yankees.

Coffee House Press Faces in the Crowd
Valeria Luiselli
Translated by Christina MacSweeney

“An extraordinary new literary talent.”—The Daily Telegraph “In part a portrait of the artist as a young woman, this deceptively modestseeming, astonishingly inventive novel creates an extraordinary intimacy, a sensibility so alive it quietly takes over all your senses, quivering through your nerve endings, opening your eyes and heart. Youth, from unruly student years to early motherhood and a loving marriage—and then, in the book’s second half, wilder and something else altogether, the fearless, half-mad imagination of youth, I might as well call it—has rarely been so freshly, charmingly, and unforgettably portrayed. Valeria Luiselli is a masterful, entirely original writer.”—Francisco Goldman In Mexico City, a young mother is writing a novel of her days as a translator living in New York. In Harlem, a translator is desperate to publish the works of Gilberto Owen, an obscure Mexican poet. And in Philadelphia, Gilberto Owen recalls his friendship with Lorca, and the young woman he saw in the windows of passing trains. Valeria Luiselli’s debut signals the arrival of a major international writer and an unexpected and necessary voice in contemporary fiction.

Coffee House Press Sidewalks
Valeria Luiselli
Translated by Christina MacSweeney Introduction by Cees Nooteboom
“Valeria Luiselli is a writer of formidable talent, destined to be an important voice in Latin American letters. Her vision and language are precise, and the power of her intellect is in evidence on every page.”—Daniel Alarcón “I’m completely captivated by the beauty of the paragraphs, the elegance of the prose, the joy in the written word, and the literary sense of this author.” —Enrique Vilas-Matas Valeria Luiselli is an evening cyclist; a literary tourist in Venice, searching for Joseph Brodsky’s tomb; an excavator of her own artifacts, unpacking from a move. In essays that are as companionable as they are ambitious, she uses the city to exercise a roving, meandering intelligence, seeking out the questions embedded in our human landscapes. Valeria Luiselli was born in Mexico City in 1983 and grew up in South Africa. Her novel and essays have been translated into many languages and her work has appeared in publications including the New York Times, Granta, and McSweeney’s. Some of her recent projects include a ballet performed by the New York City Ballet in Lincoln Center; a pedestrian sound installation for the Serpentine Gallery in London; and a novella in installments for workers in a juice factory in Mexico. She lives in New York City.
Cosmopolitan, vivacious essays in the tradition of Joseph Brodsky’s Watermark and Walter Benjamin’s The Arcades Project by a celebrated young Mexican author.

Coffee House Press The Artist’s Library
A Field Guide

Erinn Batykefer and Laura Damon-Moore
Foreword by Jessica Pigza
Creativity, like information, is free to everyone who steps into a library. The Artist’s Library offers the idea that an artist is any person who uses creative tools to make new things, and the guidance and resources to make libraries of all sizes and shapes come alive as spaces for art-making and cultural engagement. Case studies included in the book range from the crafty (pop-up books) to the community-minded (library galleries) to documentary (photo projects) to the technically complex (“listening” to libraries via Dewey decimal frequencies). The Library as Incubator Project was created by Erinn Batykefer, Laura Damon-Moore, and Christina Endres. It highlights the ways that libraries and artists can work together, and works to strengthen these partnerships. By calling attention to one of the many reasons libraries are important to our communities and our culture, it provides a dynamic online forum for sharing ideas. Erinn Batykefer is a librarian, a writer, and a lifelong do-it-yourselfer. She earned an MFA in writing and a Master of Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Her first poetry collection, Allegheny, Monongahela, won the Benjamin Saltman Poetry Prize. Laura Damon-Moore is a librarian, blogger, and avid art-maker in her spare time. Laura received her master’s degree in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2012. Jessica Pizga is the assistant curator in the New York Public Library’s Rare Book Division. She also writes on handmade material culture, DIY, and handicrafts at Hand-Made.
A guide to libraries as creative spaces including exercises, best practices, and examples for artists, librarians, and community members.

Mark Ford

Selected Poems charts Mark Ford’s growing complexity as a writer and his mastery and use of form. John Ashbery calls Ford’s work “refreshing” and it’s that exuberance and goodwill that animates the poems, giving them their spontaneity and leavening the grim with comic élan and joy. Myth, history, and the everyday are all at play in this wonderfully diverse collection. Invisible Assets After he threw he through a plate glass window, nature seemed that much closer. Even the dastardly division in society might be healed by a first-rate glazier. Of course, on Sundays families still picnicked boldly on the village green, and afterwards marveled at the blacksmith’s glowing forge— how strong they all were in those days!

And yet how small! Even a man only six foot tall was then esteemed a veritable giant. Surely the current furor over architecture would have evoked from them only pitying smiles. Meanwhile the market for landscapes has never been firmer. This view, for instance, includes seven counties, and a bull charging around in its paddock. Mark Ford was born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1962. He has published three collections of poetry and a biography of the French writer Raymond Roussel and is the editor of Frank O’Hara’s Selected Poems. He has also translated Roussel’s New Impressions of Africa and is the editor of London: A History in Verse. He lives in London, England.

Copper Canyon Press The Moon Before Morning
W.S. Merwin
“In his personal anonymity, his strict individuated manner, his defense of the earth, and his heartache at time’s passing, Merwin has become instantly recognizable on the page.”—Helen Vendler, The New York Review of Books “W.S. Merwin’s legacy is unquestionably secure.”—Poetry “Merwin [is] fresh and awake with a simplicity that can only be called wisdom.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review An elaboration and response to his Pulitzer Prize–winning The Shadow of Sirius, W.S. Merwin examines everything from minute flowers to oceanic destruction, and weaves our complex relationship with the natural world with his own youth, memory, and intense engagement with the passing of days. With considered reverence, subtle might, and generous poetic imagination, Merwin presents a masterful and gorgeous collection. From “Wild Oats”: All the beads have gone from the old string and the string does not miss them I needed my mistakes in their own order to get me here In my youth I believed in somewhere else I put faith in travel now I am becoming my own tree W.S. Merwin is one of the country’s best-selling poets. He served as Poet Laureate of the United States, and his three most recent poetry collections each received a major award, including the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the Bobbitt Award from the Library of Congress. He lives in Hawaii.
In luscious and purposeful language, W.S. Merwin’s new poems examine our essential relationships with the natural world.

Copper Canyon Press The Mountain Poems of Stonehouse
Stonehouse
Translated by Red Pine

“The Mountain Poems of Stonehouse [is] a tough-spirited book of enlightened free verse.”—Kyoto Journal The Zen master and mountain hermit Stonehouse—considered one of the greatest Chinese Buddhist poets—used poetry as his medium of instruction. Near the end of his life, monks asked him to record what he found of interest on his mountain; Stonehouse delivered to them hundreds of poems and an admonition: “Do not to try singing these poems. Only if you sit on them will they do you any good.” Newly revised, with the Chinese originals and Red Pine’s abundant commentary and notes, The Mountain Poems of Stonehouse is an essential volume for Zen students, readers of Asian literature, and all who love the outdoors. After eating I dust off a boulder and sleep and after sleeping I go for a walk on a cloudy late summer day an oriole sings from a sapling briefly enjoying the season joyfully singing out its heart true happiness is right here why chase an empty name Stonehouse was born in 1272 in Changshu, China, and took his name from a cave at the edge of town. He became a highly respected dharma master in the Zen Buddhist tradition. Red Pine is one of the world’s leading translators of Chinese poetry. “Every time I translate a book of poems,” he writes, “I learn a new way of dancing. And the music has to be Chinese.” He lives near Seattle, Washington.
A bilingual Chinese-English volume of mountain poems from a Zen master.

Copper Canyon Press Like a Beggar
Ellen Bass
“Bass takes all of it, the guts and glory of life, and transforms her experiences into remarkable poetry that is beautifully written, easy to understand, and complex in meaning and implication.”—Windy City Times “Openness, giving, and interconnection are recurring themes in Bass’s work.” —La Gazette Ellen Bass brings a deft touch as she continues her ongoing interrogations of crucial moral issues of our times, while simultaneously delighting in endearing human absurdities. From the start of Like a Beggar, Bass asks her readers to relax, even though “bad things are going to happen,” because the “bad” gets mined for all manner of goodness. From “Small Lives”: After dinner, we’re drinking scotch at the kitchen table. Janet and I just watched a NOVA special and we’re explaining to her mother the age and size of the universe— the hundred billion stars in the hundred billion galaxies. Dotty lives at Dominican Oaks, making her way down the long hall. How about the sun? she asks, a little farmshit in the endlessness. I gather up a cantaloupe, a lime, a cherry, and start revolving this salad around the chicken carcass. This is the best scotch I ever tasted, Dotty says, even though we gave her the Maker’s Mark while we’re drinking Glendronach . . . Ellen Bass’s most recent book of poems, The Human Line, was named a “Notable Book of the Year” by the San Francisco Chronicle. In addition, she is co-author of the million-seller Courage to Heal. She lives in Santa Cruz, California.
Champion of the body and the universe, Ellen Bass draws us into her world of details and delight. Also Available

Copper Canyon Press Sun Bear
Matthew Zapruder
“Zapruder’s poems don’t merely attempt beauty; they attain it.”—Boston Review “Matthew Zapruder has a razor eye for the remnants and revenants of modern culture.”—The New York Times Matthew Zapruder’s poems begin in the faint inkling, in the bloom of thought, and then unfold into wide-reaching meditations on what it means to live in the contemporary moment, among plastic, statistics, and diet soda. Written in a direct, conversational style, the poems in Sun Bear display full-force why Zapruder is one of the most popular poets in America. From “I Drink Bronze Light”: Great American summer lakes right now I am flying above you through a rare cloudless transparent sky back to the city where it is always cold even in summer the round hole I press my face against shows only a blue expanse with white sails below speckled exactly the way the Aegean would have been three thousand years ago if one could have seen it from above maybe riding in the dark claw of a god who didn’t care . . . Matthew Zapruder is a poet, translator, and editor at Wave Books. His work has appeared in many publications, including BOMB, Paris Review, the New Yorker, McSweeney’s, and the Believer. He lives in San Francisco, California.
In a thought-scape rich with memories of friends and flower shops, unexpected and understated revelations, Matthew Zapruder spins modern unpunctuated soliloquies.

Bill Hillmann

“A raucous but soulful account of growing up on the mean streets of Chicago, and the choices kids are forced to make on a daily basis. This cool, incendiary rites of passage novel is the real deal.”—Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting “Bill Hillmann’s The Old Neighborhood is like a right hook to the chin with brass knuckles, crackling with both bravery and urgency. Brilliantly evoking Nelson Algren’s Neon Wilderness and Richard Price’s The Wanderers, the novel is unflinchingly honest in its depictions of class and race, a deft portrait of our sometimes-less-than-fair city.”—Joe Meno, best-selling author of Hairstyles of the Damned A bright and sensitive teen, Joe Walsh is the youngest in a big, mixed-race Chicago family. After Joe witnesses his heroin-addicted oldest brother commit a brutal gangland murder, his friends and loved ones systematically drag him deeper into a black pit of violence that reaches a bloody impasse when his eldest sister begins dating a rival gang member. Bill Hillmann is an award-winning writer and storyteller from Chicago, Illinois. His writing has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Newcity, Salon.com, and has been broadcast on NPR. He’s told stories around the world with his internationally acclaimed storytelling series the “Windy City Story Slam.” Hillmann is a union construction laborer and an elite bull runner in Spain, who in the not-so-distant past was a feared street brawler, gang affiliate, drug dealer, convict, and Chicago Golden Glove Champion.

Praise for Tim Kinsella’s The Karaoke Singer’s Guide to Self-Defense: “For all this novel’s depth of story, and that story’s grip and wealthy undercurrents, Tim Kinsella’s rushing, trippily meticulous prose is so exciting to follow that the story seems as much the novel’s soundtrack and topography as it is the point. A thorough and wildly distinctive read.” —Dennis Cooper, author of The Marbled Swarm “On a number of occasions, it’s shit-your-pants brilliant. Kinsella, who has been a principal member of a number of Chicago bands, is already something of royalty in the Chicago indie music scene. Consider Self-Defense the first entry in a case for similar esteem in indie lit.”—Newcity Lit Cult actress Laurie Bird’s story is told in a second-person narrative, creating a fictional blurring of what little is known of her biography with her acting roles as cross-country drag-racing moll in Two Lane Blacktop, champion cockfighter’s wife in Cockfighter, and mansion-dwelling Hollywood starlet in Annie Hall, and unravels in a bathtub where she commits suicide at the age of twenty six.

Praise for Megan Stielstra’s Everyone Remain Calm: “Stielstra—collector, curator, and facilitator of so many stories—also writes beautifully and kinetically. Her work possesses a rare aural quality, no doubt the result of so much time on stage, or even in front of a classroom.” —Time Out Chicago “The recent work of writer Megan Stielstra is an emblematic example of the hybridity that characterizes new short work infused with online elements. . . . In the collection’s captivating short story ‘I Am the Keymaster,’ Stielstra’s protagonist uses a distinctly digital mechanism—Craigslist—to approach a thoroughly corporeal problem—a need to secure affordable birth-control pills.” —Toronto Review of Books With storytelling chops honed over a decade of performances at Chicago’s 2nd Story storytelling series, these insightful, compassionate, gutsy, and heartbreaking personal essays explore the messy, maddening beauty of adulthood with wit, intelligence, and biting humor, tackling topics ranging from beating postpartum depression through stalking to a surprising run-in with an old lover at the symphony while on ecstasy.

Praise for Letitia Trent’s One Perfect Bird: “The poems in One Perfect Bird ride like a dirty living letter in a good, clean envelope. They are the silty Tang in our cups, the color of the hunters’ vests like ribbons through the birches as they searched our forest for any rusty bursts of blood.”—Kyle Minor, author of Praying Drunk “Reading these poems I was reminded of the voice and vision of Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping. Similarly, the emotional and psychological rawness of human thought, as crafted by Letitia Trent in surprising, elusive, and innovative lines, startles us into a recognition so profound, we’re not entirely sure what we’re reading or if we’re reading.”—Kathy Fagan, author of Lip Thirty-something Emily Collins inherits her recently murdered aunt’s house, deciding to move to Heartshorne, Oklahoma, to claim it and confront her family’s dark past after her dead mother begins speaking to her in dreams, propelling this gothic, neo-noir thriller toward terrifying revelations of murderous small-town justice when a horrible community secret is revealed through the supernatural pull of Echo Lake.

Dewi Lewis Publishing The Reluctant Father
Phillip Toledano

Phillip Toledano became a father at the age of forty. He fell in love with his daughter about a year and a half later, when he realized she was the most bewitching human being he’d ever seen. Initially, though, things were different. The Reluctant Father follows Phillip’s journey at the beginning of fatherhood. The first eighteen months were a time of torment, dismay, and confusion. The blinding light of unalloyed love came later. It’s a surprisingly frank, funny, and moving account, and he hopes his daughter won’t hold it against him when she’s grown up. In many ways, The Reluctant Father is a sequel to the best-selling Days With My Father, which documented the three years Phillip spent taking care of his father, who suffered from dementia. Phillip Toledano is an Englishman living in New York. With an established international reputation, he has been a photographer and artist for the last twelve years. In that time, he has published four books, ranging in subject from plastic surgery, phone sex, and failing businesses through to the last years he spent with his father. His work combines great poignancy with a rich vein of humor.
A humourous and touching account of one man’s troubled journey down the rocky road of fatherhood.

Alisa Resnik’s photographs are rich in atmosphere. It is as if she ventures through stage sets catching fleeting moments of an insubstantial reality. Working mainly in Berlin, she explores faded bars and hotel rooms that echo the past—leaden-colored scenes and spaces emptied of life—and people’s faces, etched with the traces of their lives. As winner of the European Publishers Award for Photography, Alisa Resnik’s work is published in five European languages and exhibited at the prestigious Rencontres Festival, France, in July 2014. She has exhibited in Rome, Milan, and Madrid, and was selected among the PhotoEspana 2009 Discoveries.

Enchanted Lion Books Macanudo
Ricardo Liniers Siri
Translated by Mara Faye Lethem

“Anyone can draw a cat, anyone can draw a little girl or a man with a hat, but not everyone can make that cat, that little girl and that man with a hat different from any we’ve ever seen before and have them become part of our world, as if we knew them personally. Liniers draws characters, and his characters are macanudos, which is to say extraordinary and awesome. And he draws them so well that they’re all lovely, even the ugly ones are so perfectly ugly that they’re beautiful. Loners, with a pop innocence that’s sometimes a bit perverse, they move elegantly between sadness and astonishment, like anonymous actors in small B movies.”—Maitena In Macanudo, Ricardo Liniers Siri uses crayon, ink, and watercolor with incredible skill to render an entire world that is poetic, absurd, emotionally expressive, and full of surprise. Anything and everything about our world can find its way into Macanudo, but it will have passed through Liniers’s particular filter, and it thus will have become rendered funny, beautiful, and incredibly sympathetic. Ricardo Liniers Siri was born in 1973 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he now lives with his wife and three daughters. For more than ten years he has published an enormously popular daily strip, Macanudo, in Argentina’s largest daily newspaper, La Nacion. Up until now, nine collections of the strip have been published in Argentina. He also travels around the world drawing on stage with musician Kevin Johansen. His work has been published in nine countries, including Spain, Italy, France, Brazil, and the Czech Republic. His first book to be published in the United States was The Big Wet Balloon (September 2013). Mara Faye Lethem has translated novels by David Trueba, Albert Sánchez Piñol, Idelfonso Falcones, Javier Calvo, Patricio Pron, Marc Pastor, and Pablo De Santis, among others. Her translations have appeared in The Best American Non-Required Reading 2010, Granta, the Paris Review, and McSweeney’s.
In English for the first time, these comic strips from the Argentinian artist Ricardo Liniers Siri are poetic, inventive, absurd, and funny.

Courtney Elizabeth Mauk
“It’s clear to me that Courtney Elizabeth Mauk is going to be an important new voice of her generation.”—Dan Chaon, author of Await Your Reply and Stay Awake “He asked about you,” Glory says. There we go. I close my eyes to find the soothing darkness, but the kitchen light shines through my lids. I don’t trust my hands. I trap them under my armpits. “What did you tell him?” “I said you were doing well. You’re very happy.” She holds her glass aloft, as if toasting herself. “I placed great emphasis on that point.” “I thought he would be dead.” “Sit down,” Glory says. I do. She retrieves my wineglass from the counter and places it in front of me. We drink solemnly, as if without this important step we cannot go on, which is probably true. A postcard arrives straight out of her past, forcing Carrie to confront her commune upbringing alongside Amelia, the almost-sister she worshipped and lost. Desperate to keep her daughter close amid a bitter divorce, Carrie must come to understand how the choices made by a well-meaning but misguided community have defined her life since, and threaten to forever. Courtney Elizabeth Mauk is the author of the novel Spark. Her short work has appeared in the Literary Review, PANK, and FiveChapters, among others. She is an assistant editor at Barrelhouse and teaches at the Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop and the Juilliard School. She lives in Manhattan, New York, with her husband.

Etruscan Press The Greatest Jewish-American Lover in Hungarian History
Michael Blumenthal
Etan Yogev had had no experience in bed—and hardly any outside of it—and it was not without a strong feeling of awkwardness and insecurity that he had first allowed Daphna Flinker to guide his somewhat ambivalent member into her own body, and his lips against her lips. She enjoyed it— this teacherly role—it had been a very long time since she had been able to practice the art of sexual instruction, and there was something exciting and alluring about this—all that innocence in a single place! A humorous and heartrending portrait of expatriate life, The Greatest Jewish American Lover in Hungarian History draws upon the hazards and confusions that occur when the Old World meets the New. In venues as diverse as Israel, Hungary, Paris, Cambridge, and even Texas, the stories portray life in an increasingly connected and globalized world. Michael Blumenthal displays the erotic zest of Philip Roth and the grim humanism of Isaak Babel. Michael Blumenthal, formerly director of creative writing at Harvard, graduated from the Cornell Law School with a JD degree in 1974, after studying philosophy and economics at the State University of New York at Binghamton. His eighth book of poems, No Hurry, was published by Etruscan Press in 2012. He is currently a visiting professor of law at the West Virginia University College of Law.

Allison Titus
The Doctor was looking for the blueprint. Drawer after drawer he lumbered his way around the office, a map of the ribcage in his head. Last night he’d dreamed the wings again and the dream gave him an idea. More of the rib, dismantled, would make the wing frame more flexible. In The Arsonist’s Song Has Nothing to Do with Fire, Vivian Foster connects with an arsonist and a radical plastic surgeon whose mission is to build human wings. Allison Titus lives in Virginia with poet Joshua Poteat and their four dogs. She has also written a book of poetry.

Exterminating Angel Press Jam Today Too
The Revolution Will Not Be Catered

Tod Davies
“Just my kind of book. . . . In addition to some great meals made to satisfy desires, needs, whims, or simply to make use of what’s at hand, Jam Today is a complete pleasure to read.”—Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone “The spirit of M.F.K. Fisher surely hovers over this book, amused and beguiled by a cook whose prose has the same artful composure, and whose cooking possesses a similar innate sense of style.”—John Thorne, author of Serious Pig: An American Cook in Search of His Roots “I’d just like a refill, please. A second cool, tall glass of Jam.”—Maggie Ruggiero, Gather Journal recipe editor and food stylist Warm, conversational, and exquisitely practical, Tod Davies shares her experiences discovering new ways to cook and enjoy a meal with friends, family, and even beloved pets, during the best and worst of times. Featuring inspired advice about how to eat (and what to prepare) to survive natural disasters, cross-country moves, bereavement, holidays-gone-wrong, and even a spontaneous picnic, Jam Today Too provides all the ingredients for daily feeding of mind, body, and soul. Tod Davies is the author of Snotty Saves the Day and Lily the Silent, both from the History of Arcadia series, and the cooking memoirs Jam Today: A Diary of Cooking With What You’ve Got and Jam Today Too: The Revolution Will Not Be Catered. Unsurprisingly, her attitude toward literature is the same as her attitude toward cooking—it’s all about working with what you have to find new ways of looking and new ways of being, and, in doing so, to rediscover the best of our humanity.
Today the kitchen, tomorrow the world!

February Books The Ames Strain
The Mystery Behind America’s Most Deadly Bioterror Attack

David Willman

“A mystery story about murder committed on the national stage . . . we have a twisted villain whose secret life is laid utterly bare. Unlike most mysteries, this one is literally true, carefully documented and skillfully told by one of America’s finest investigative journalists.”—John S. Carroll, Los Angeles Times In the dark days that followed September 11, America faced its first major bioterror attack that led to five deaths, seventeen infections, and a seven-year hunt for the culprit. The Ames Strain is an engrossing and unsparing portrait of Bruce Edward Ivins, the deeply troubled US Army scientist that the United States Department of Justice concluded to be the sole perpetrator of the anthrax attacks. David Willman uncovers the struggle for control within the FBI’s anthrax investigation, the missteps of an overzealous press, and how a cadre of government officials disregarded scientific evidence in order to spin the attacks into a basis for war with Iraq. With bioweapons continuing to make the news, the lessons from the Ivins case and Willman’s thorough investigation are more relevant than ever.

February Books Paisley Mischief
Lincoln MacVeagh

Paisley Mischief is a delightfully droll satire set in the most exclusive private men’s club on New York’s Park Avenue. The Avenue Club is a place where rich banker-types meet in easy camaraderie and no one wears trunks in the pool, because when you’re the right sort of person, you’re supposed to have nothing to hide. When a famously brash movie producer applies for membership, longsimmering tensions at The Avenue rise to a boil. Who is Max Guberstein and where did he come from? Why does he want to join and most important, will he get in? These are the questions on everyone’s mind, but it’s left up to Dante Penfield, the club president’s feckless nephew, and his resourceful roommate Audrey to figure out the answers. Offering an inside glimpse into the preppy world, this tightly plotted comedy rolls like a freight train toward its ingenious conclusion. Paisley Mischief is reminiscent of the best drawing room comedies with its hilariously drawn characters and their highly incompatible views of the world. You will be charmed!

The Feminist Press at CUNY Valerie Solanas
The Defiant Life of the Woman Who Wrote SCUM (and Shot Andy Warhol)

Breanne Fahs
Too drastic, too crazy, too “out there,” too early, too late, too damaged, too much—Valerie Solanas has been dismissed but never forgotten. She has become, unwittingly, a figurehead for women’s unexpressed rage, and stands at the center of many worlds. She inhabited Andy Warhol’s Factory scene, circulated among feminists and the countercultural underground, charged men money for conversation, despised “daddy’s girls,” and outlined a vision for radical gender dystopia. Known for shooting Andy Warhol in 1968 and for writing the polemical diatribe SCUM Manifesto, Solanas is one of the most famous women of her era. SCUM Manifesto—which predicted ATMs, test-tube babies, the Internet, and artificial insemination long before they existed—has sold more copies, and has been translated into more languages, than nearly all other feminist texts of its time. Shockingly little work has interrogated Solanas’s life. This book is the first biography about Solanas, including original interviews with family, friends (and enemies), and numerous living Warhol associates. It reveals surprising details about her life: the children nearly no one knew she had, her drive for control over her own writing and copyright, and her elusive personal and professional relationships. Valerie Solanas addresses how this era changed the world and depicts an iconic figure whose life is at once tragic and remarkable. Breanne Fahs is an associate professor of women and gender studies at Arizona State University, a practicing clinical psychologist, and the author of Performing Sex and The Moral Panics of Sexuality.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Pissing in a River
Lorrie Sprecher

Amanda moves to London with nothing but her guitar and her collection of punk music as the soundtrack to her every step. With the company of a few friendly voices in her head, she looks for—and finds—a best friend and new lover. She forms a band, Lesbian Raincoat, and completely rewrites the story of her life. In this irreverently funny yet profound novel, Amanda risks deportation, recalls the fervor of AIDS activism in the United States, connects to the class struggle of punk, and finds redemption in love. But she also must confront her own mental illness, her lover’s rape, and the violence of post-9/11 politics. Pissing in a River captures the glee and turbulence of surviving the cacophony of modern life. Lorrie Sprecher is the author of Sister Safety Pin and Anxiety Attack. She was a member of ACT UP/DC, has a PhD in English and American literature, and resides in Syracuse, New York with her dog Kurt. The punk song “It’s a Heteronormative World, No!,” recorded by her band Sugar Rat, appears on a compilation put out by Riot Grrrl Berlin.

Fence Books House of Deer
Sasha Steensen

“Like the Oppen she takes as her epigraph, Sasha Steensen’s is a poetry that feels magically made via both subtraction and building. With language as lush as Hopkins’ and then as small and weird as Niedecker’s, Steensen tells a story, or alights in and out of a story, all her own. It’s an American story, too, with all the bloodiness and experiment that such a thing requires.”—Maggie Nelson Sasha Steensen’s third volume is a lyric inquiry into a personal history of the back-to-the-land idealism of the 1970s, with its promises and failings, naturalism gone awry, and journeys into the worlds of addiction, recovery, and, ultimately, family. “If family is a body, learn its anatomy,” Steensen writes early in the book, immediately before upending all our expectations and giving us new thoughts to think. The family bought a rural plot & planted a garden. The family formed thoughts. Within these thoughts, eggs hatched, animals were born, little wars formed. Each thought said unspeakable things to the other thoughts. As you know, unspoken thoughts rot. Sasha Steensen teaches poetry workshops, literature courses, letterpress printing, and bookmaking at Colorado State University. She is the author of The Method (2008) and A Magic Book (Alberta Prize, 2004), and chapbooks including A History of the Human Family (2010), The Future of an Illusion (2008), and correspondence (with Gordon Hadfield, 2004). Steensen is also co-editor of Bonfire Press, and she serves as one of the poetry editors for Colorado Review.
A portrait in poems of the back-to-the-land movement of the ’70s: the hippies and hicks, addictions and attempts at recovery.

Fence Books The Lost Novel
James Shea
James Shea’s second collection engages in lucid, perspicacious conversation with narratives public and personal, visible and unseen, the loss in the title cycloning out from Midwestern landscapes to histories and undertows and the “unorganized movement of time” that “bedevils us.” A stunning, thoughtful follow-up to his Fence Modern Poets Prize–winning debut Star in the Eye. From “Moscow”: We saw the legs of a coyote run past into the grass during our evening drive through rolling mounds resembling kneeling bison. Such gorgeous hills make one wish to see the dark slopes where famous bodies may be buried . . . James Shea is the author of Star in the Eye, selected for the 2008 Fence Modern Poets Series and named as a “Favorite Book of 2008” by the Chicago Sun-Times. His work has appeared in various publications, including Boston Review, Colorado Review, Denver Quarterly, jubilat, Iowa Review, and the Academy of American Poets’ Poem-A-Day feature. His translations of Japanese poetry can be found in the Iowa Review, Circumference, and Gin’yu. He was included recently in the Poetry Society of America’s New American Poets series. He teaches at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
Backyard mysticism with a dash of scalding absurdity—James Shea’s second collection is by turns wry, wrenching, and utterly real.

Fence Books My god is this a man
Laura Sims
“Laura Sims is a startlingly original poet whose work goes very deep, like a well made of animal and human bones mortared together with rubber tires, dismembered books, dismembered dolls, and a lot of other unlikely stuff that draws water from thousands of feet under the surface of the earth.” —Peter Straub Laura Sims’s third poetry collection engages the escarpment of the page: walled-off phrases set against spare lines on largely empty pages, a protographical representation of thought itself. These poems replicate the psychic fragmentation that’s necessary for evil-doing: relationship as crime scene, the folk ballad re-writ for our new cult of mass-shootings, “the quiet and unmeaning” of a natural world wrought horrific . . . From “MURDER SON(G)”: Walk into a pep rally with guns. Walk into a Costco with guns. Walk into a coffee shop with guns. Walk into a party store with guns. Walk into a wedding shower with guns. Walk into a weight room with guns. Walk into a living room with guns and say All I want is something small. Laura Sims is the author of Stranger and Practice, Restraint, both from Fence Books, and of Fare Forward: Letters with David Markson (Powerhouse Books). She coedits Instance Press and teaches literature and creative writing in New York University’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies. She lives with her family in Brooklyn, New York.
Disjunctive lyricism and visual reorientation make the real world frighteningly unnatural in this third collection by Alberta Prize–winner Laura Sims.

Fence Books Colony Collapse Metaphor
Philip Jenks

“Into the deeper shoals of syntax strolls Philip Jenks, sans machete, instead with a watering can filled to the brim with acto-juice precisely calculated to make those nouns and verbs and articles shoot to record heights and tangles.” —Kevin Killian Philip Jenks’s poems land like bolts of plasma: superheated, suppurated, the “inverted afterthought” of destiny that awaits the speaker of one poem, or absurdities that make a devastating sense, as when Jenks asks about “temperature of God” while invoking the fires of Auschwitz, or when he imagines meth-laced syringes puncturing a user’s skin from the inside out. These poems draw blood. FOX HOLE —where the heart sits. “Body song” Of a prayer, you. Ensemble Ablated They pulled the skin and fur clean off, But the fox, panting, blinked with What was left of eyes. Peeled. “Strung out” Will I aid and abet With inaction? There is no difference Between killing and allowing to die. Philip Jenks lives in Chicago, Illinois, where he teaches English at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His previous volumes are On the Cave You Live In (2002), My First Painting will be “The Accuser’’ (2005), and Disappearing Address (2010). He has toured and recorded with Neil Michael Hagerty as a member of The Howling Hex. His academic specializations are in gender studies, animal rights, and political philosophy. He likes good music and pinball.
Weird and wired, the poems in Philip Jenks’s third collection scintillate with lyric absurdity and strange grace.

Fence Books The L Notebook
Sabine Macher
Translated by Eleni Sikelianos
Sabine Macher’s long poem performs an archeology of sensation with particular attention to the body and modes of perception between the five senses. Macher negotiates the particulars of a “here and now” with other times, places, and events. The result is a warm, wry record of life lived with attention. Sabine Macher, a native of Germany, has made a career in dance and theater throughout France. She has published eleven books of poetry, and worked extensively in soundscapes and sound installation. Her piece on Raymond Roussel’s novel La Doublure was featured this spring at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

Seven String Quartets
Frédéric Forte
Translated by Matthew B. Smith
Frédéric Forte’s fleeting poems borrow the structure and arrangement of the string quartet, but rather than performing in concert, these poems keep tuning their instruments, fidgeting and fussing, sighing and shrugging, until they quietly exit the stage. Throughout, one is swept along by what turns out to be a surprisingly subtle, finely nuanced performance. Frédéric Forte has published seventeen collections in the past ten years. He became a member of the well-known Oulipo (Workshop of Potential Literature) in 2005, and teaches and does residencies throughout France. He lives in Paris, where (among other things) he runs the blog poète-public.

Feral House Chemtrails, HAARP, and the “Full Spectrum Dominance” of Planet Earth
Elana Freeland
We are entering a Space Age, but not the kind President Kennedy originally envisioned. This Space Age is replacing resource wars and redefines planet earth as a “battlespace” in accordance with the military doctrine of “FullSpectrum Dominance.” This book examines how chemtrails and ionispheric heaters like the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP) in Alaska services a full-spectrum dominance. This “Revolution in Military Affairs” needs an atmospheric medium to assure wireless access to the bodies and brains of anyone on Earth—from heat-seeking missiles to a form of mind control. How sinister are these technologies? Are we being prepared for a “global village” lockdown? The recent release of NSA records have reminded Americans that “eyes in the sky” are tracking us as supercomputers record the phone calls, e-mails, internet posts, and even the brain frequencies of millions. Elana M. Freeland’s startling book sifts through the confusion surrounding chemtrails-versus-contrails and how extreme weather is being “geo-engineered” to enrich disaster capitalists and intimidate nations. A deconstruction of Bernard J. Eastlund’s HAARP patent points to other covert agendas, such as a global Smart Grid infrastructure that enables access to every body and brain on Earth, a “transhumanist” future that erases lines between human and machine, and nanobiological hybrids armed with microprocessers that infest and harm human bodies.
The skies look strange and different. Scientists are discovering heavy metals in the soil. Chemtrails tells us why.

Teary, big-eyed orphans and a multitude of trashy knockoffs epitomized American kitsch art as they clogged thrift stores for decades. When Adam Parfrey tracked down Walter Keane—the credited artist of the weepy waifs, for a San Diego Reader cover story in 1992—he discovered some shocking facts. Decades of lawsuits and countersuits revealed the reality that Keane was more of a con man than an artist, and that he forced his wife Margaret to sign his name to her own paintings. As a result, those weepy waifs may not have been as capricious an invention as they seemed. Parfrey’s story was reprinted in Juxtapoz magazine and inspired a Margaret Keane exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum. And now director Tim Burton is filming a movie about the Keanes called Big Eyes, and it’s scheduled for release in 2014. Burton’s Ed Wood, starring Johnny Depp, was based upon the Feral House book edited and published by Parfrey about the angora sweaterwearing B-film director. Citizen Keane is a book-length expansion of Parfrey’s original article, providing fascinating biographical and sociological details, photographs, color reproductions, and appendices with legal documents and a pseudonymous essay by Tom Wolfe inflating big eye art to those painted by the great masters.
The strange saga of the famous kitsch artists, the Keanes, soon to be seen in the forthcoming movie Big Eyes.

Feral House White House Call Girl
The Real Watergate Story

Phil Stanford

Ex-stripper Heidi Rikan was working for the mob in Washington, DC. White House Call Girl tells how a call girl operation she was running at the time led to the Watergate break-in, which brought down Tricky Dick Nixon himself. Needless to say, this is not part of the usual Watergate story that has come down to us over the decades. It is also only fair to point out that this version of the story might be dismissed out of hand as being dangerous “revisionist” history. If you’re not careful, you might end up being called a conspiracy theorist. You can also be called crazy—which is what happened to a young lawyer named Phillip Bailley, one of the principal witnesses to this ignored bit of American history. When he was foolish enough to blow the whistle on Rikan and her call girl ring, he was locked up at St. Elizabeth’s, the District of Columbia’s mental hospital, in the ward for the criminally insane. For forty years we’ve only heard the Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein perspective on Watergate. Now we’ve got the photographs for the revisionist model. What’s more, we’ve got Heidi’s little black book. White House Call Girl was published last season in an eBook edition only. The paperback edition includes new information on the murder of call girl— and playmate of Vice President Spiro Agnew—Pat Adams. With the help of newly-released FBI documents, we fill in more of the blanks in this longsuppressed story.
Here is the secretive back story of Watergate, involving mobsters, prostitutes, and intelligence agencies.

Feral House Republican Party Animal
The “Bad Boy of Holocaust History” Blows the Lid Off Hollywood’s Secret Right-Wing Underground

David Cole
“David Stein brought right-wing congressmen, celebrities, writers and entertainment industry figures together for shindigs, closed to outsiders. . . . There was just one problem. Stein was not who he claimed.”—The Guardian In 2013, Republican “hero” David Stein made international headlines when he was unmasked as David Cole, the notorious Jewish Holocaust denier who made an entirely different set of headlines in the 1990s with his videos from within the gates of Auschwitz and his appearances on shows like 60 Minutes and Donahue. After a $25,000 bounty was put on his head by a violent extremist group, Cole left behind the bizarre world of Holocaust denial, a landscape populated by Hitler fetishists who Cole himself detested. Then, David Stein the Republican organizer was born. Stein soon became a major force in the closed-door world of Hollywood right-wingers—people who felt as alienated from the mainstream of their profession as Cole had felt as the lone Jewish Holocaust revisionist. Soon enough, Stein was working with major GOP power players and far-right Hollywood A-listers, creating huge private events for the West Coast GOP elite . . . until it all came crashing down when a vengeful former girlfriend outed him publicly. Condemned by those who had previously lauded him, Cole was left with nothing but his story. And here he tells it, warts and all, including the firstever exposé of the secretive Hollywood far-right underground, “Friends of Abe.”
The story of GOP activist David Stein, who was exposed as a notorious Holocaust denier.

Jim Northrup is an award-winning journalist, poet, and playwright. His syndicated column, “Fond du Lac Follies,” was named Best Column at the 1999 Native American Journalists Association convention, and he holds an honorary doctorate of letters from Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College.

Kenny Salwey and J. Scott Bestul

Kenny Salwey is a modern-day American hermit who has lived most of his life in the Mississippi river bottoms, coming to know the river ecosystem with an intimacy unavailable to most. Kenny shares his love of, and knowledge about, the mighty river. Covering a year of Kenny’s life on the river, The Last River Rat will give readers a greater appreciation of the natural world, living off the land, and protecting the river’s ecology. 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. J. Scott Bestul is a regional editor for Field & Stream Magazine and a contributing editor for Sporting Classics magazines. He was born in Madison, Wisconsin, where he grew up loving the outdoors, hunting, and fishing.

“He takes the world which died between the wars and patiently dissects it for us.” —Le Magazine Littéraire “An imaginative adventure that is both captivating and moving.” —Pierre Moustiers “A welcome addition to the literature of the inter-war period.”—Le Monde The classic coming-of-age novel translated into English for the first time. It is 1919. On a summer’s night in Normandy, a newborn baby is left in a basket outside the home of Albert and Jeanne Arnaud. The childless couple take the foundling in, name him Jean, and decide to raise him as their own, though his parentage remains a mystery. Though Jean’s life is never dull, he grows up knowing little of what lies beyond his local area. Until the day he sets off on his bicycle to discover the world, and encounters a Europe on the threshold of interesting times . . . Michel Déon has published more than fifty works. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Prix Interallié for his 1970 novel Les Poneys Sauvages (The Wild Ponies). His 1973 novel Un Taxi Mauve garnered him international renown when it received the esteemed Grand Prix du roman de l’Académie française. His novels have been translated into many languages.

Hélène Gestern
Translated by Emily Boyce and Ros Schwartz

“Every note of the characters’ correspondence rings true.”—Le Nouvel Observateur “A page-turning novel with a skillfully woven plot.”—Page des Libraires “Rich in deftly turned prose and subtle character study.”—Sud-Ouest “A wonderful book about the archaeology of memory.”—Le Magazine Littéraire “Elegant, restrained, and poetic.”—France Inter The three figures in the photograph are frozen forever, two men and a woman bathed in sunlight . . . The chance discovery of a newspaper image from 1971 sets two people on the path to learning the disturbing truth about their parents’ pasts. Parisian archivist Hélène takes out a newspaper advert calling for information about her mother, who died when she was three, and the two men pictured with her in a photograph taken at a tennis tournament at Interlaken in 1971. Stéphane, a Swiss biologist living in Kent, responds: his father is one of the people in the photo. Letters and more photographs pass between them as they embark on a journey to uncover the truth their parents kept from them. But will the relics of the past fill the silences left by the players? Winner of fifteen literary awards, this dark yet touching drama deftly explores the themes of blame and forgiveness, identity and love. Hélène Gestern lives and works in Nancy, France. The People in the Photo is her first novel.

Her scientific approach to beauty was an instant sensation. Women couldn’t get enough of her innovative advice on skincare, and her beauty products were constantly sold out. This is her amazing life story. Michèle Fitoussi is a journalist and author.

Gentle Path Press Shadows of the Cross
A Christian Companion to Facing the Shadow

Craig S. Cashwell, PhD; Pennie K. Johnson, LPC, CSAT; and Patrick Carnes, PhD
Often Christians who struggle with sex addiction live the ultimate “Jekyll and Hyde” existence, being active in their church communities even as they hide their addiction. The Christian church, in general, struggles to address issues of sexuality in a non-shaming way, which further supports the hidden nature of the addiction. For these men and women, spirituality and sexuality have become compartmentalized. Recovery, then, must involve the integration of healthy spiritual beliefs and practices with healthy sexuality. Shadows of the Cross used in conjunction with Dr. Patrick Carnes’s book Facing the Shadow will provide a roadmap for this healing journey. Shadows of the Cross provides an early spiritual focus to recovery while addressing issues of sexuality in a non-shaming way using Biblical scripture to encourage long-term recovery. Shadows of the Cross offers unique guidance on spiritual practices such as Christian meditation, contemplative reading, solitude, confession, study, and prayer. This book was written specifically for the subset of those in recovery who self-identify as Christian. Craig S. Cashwell, PhD, is a professor in the department of counseling and educational development at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro who maintains a part-time private practice focused on sex addiction and couples counseling. Pennie K. Johnson, LPC, CSAT, is a clinical therapist who has a passion for working with congregations and their church members who are suffering with addiction, primarily sexual addiction. Patrick Carnes, PhD, is an internationally known educator, researcher, author, and speaker on addiction and recovery issues.

Gentle Path Press Recovery Zone, Volume 2
Achieving Balance in Your Life: The External Tasks

Patrick Carnes, PhD

Stopping addictive behavior is the only way to start recovery. However, stopping the behavior is not enough to stay in recovery. Recovery Zone, Volume 2 picks up where Recovery Zone, Volume 1 leaves off, guiding readers to begin working additional tasks of Dr. Patrick Carnes’s innovative thirty-task model. This book helps readers understand that true recovery is achieved by learning how to achieve life balance. People in recovery from any addiction can be lulled into accepting that what they are doing is good enough to get by. This can happen especially once the chaos and drama of active addiction stops. However, with advances in neuroscience, addiction experts now know how critical long-term efforts are in achieving sobriety. Researchers have learned that those people who followed a model created by Carnes could enjoy long-term recovery. Readers will discover how to restore financial viability, rediscover meaningful work, build supportive personal relationships, create lifestyle balance, establish healthy exercise and nutrition patterns, and involve family members in therapy.

Gentle Path Press Facing the Shadow
Starting Sexual and Relationship Recovery Third Edition

Patrick Carnes, PhD
For all addicts, a moment comes when they realize they have a problem. There is sudden clarity—the insight that life has become unmanageable. That moment, however, is fragile. It is easily lost to craving and denial. People struggling with sex addiction find the old refrains creeping back into their thinking: My situation is different. . . . This will all blow over. . . . People are over-reacting to my behavior. Or, This is hopeless. I’m just too perverted to change. “If any of those thoughts occur to you, you are exactly where you should be,” notes Dr. Patrick Carnes in the introduction to Facing the Shadow. Starting with those gentle words, he guides readers through a series of reflections and exercises that pierce denial and light the path to healing from sex addiction. Facing the Shadow, used by thousands of therapists with their clients, is based on the thirty-task model of recovery from addiction that forms the basis of Carnes’s work. This newly revised and expanded edition takes readers through the first seven of those tasks, including specific performables that are built in to the exercises. The model also supports Twelve Step recovery programs. Patrick Carnes, PhD, is a therapist, speaker, trainer, and author whose books include Out of the Shadows: Understanding Sexual Addiction, A Gentle Path Through the Twelve Steps, Contrary to Love: Helping the Sexual Addict, and Don’t Call It Love: Recovery From Sexual Addiction.

GILES The World is an Apple
The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne

Edited by Benedict Leca
Contributions by Denis Coutagne, Nina Kallmyer, Richard Shiff, and Paul Smith
“The artist does not perceive colour relationships directly, he feels them.” —Paul Cézanne “Cézanne’s engagement with still life was . . . a self-fulfilling journey of self-discovery, where novel depictions—using things enlivened with improbable properties—should stand in for the artist’s own ever-evolving sensory aesthetic.”—Benedict Leca There is a real lack of published material on Paul Cézanne’s still lifes; this groundbreaking new volume offers a complete, thematic reappraisal of Cézanne’s still life paintings, looking at them both within the wider context of his complex artistic and psychological development and within the broader history of the development of still life in France, and of early twentieth-century modernism. Cézanne set still life painting on a new course, one that completely altered its traditionally low position within the hierarchy of French academic painting. For Cézanne, still life became the means by which he processed his perception of things, in which he viewed shapes and objects as units that might “interpenetrate one another.” Presenting twenty-two key still lifes by Cézanne, this is a major contribution to our understanding of his life and work. As well as contributing essays by leading Cézanne specialists, the volume also includes a foreword by Philippe Cézanne, great-grandson of the artist.
A major reappraisal of Paul Cézanne’s achievement in, and lasting influence on, the genre of still life.

GILES Our America
The Latino Presence in American Art

E. Carmen Ramos
Introduction by Tomás Ybarra-Frausto, PhD

ART April 10 x 12 | 365 pp 265 color illustrations Trade Cloth US $65.00 | CAN $71.50 978-1-907804-44-1 USC

Is Latino art an integral part of modern American art? Presenting over one hundred major artworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Our America seeks to “recalibrate” enduring concepts about American national culture by exploring how one group of artists—those of Latin American descent and heritage—express their relationship to American art, history, and culture. E. Carmen Ramos addresses the whole issue of the definition of “Latino art” and how this emerged within the context of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s as American artists of Latino descent (Mexican American, Puerto Rican, Cuban American, and, more recently, Dominican) began to give a tangible face to their culture and history. Highlights include an installation altar by Amalia Mesa-Bains, the “recycled” films of Raphael Montañez Ortiz, and a 1960 geometric painting by Carmen Herrera. Other notable artists include Olga Albizu, Margarita Cabrera, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Melesio “Mel” Casas, Enrique Chagoya, Teresita Fernández, Ken Gonzales-Day, Luis Jiménez, Ana Mendieta, Pepón Osorio, Sophie Rivera, Freddy Rodríguez, and John M. Valadez, among many others. Author and curator E. Carmen Ramos is the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s curator of Latino art. She has organized numerous shows, including the fifth biennial at El Museo del Barrio in New York City in 2007. Tomás Ybarra-Frausto, PhD, the “grandfather” of this subject, and formerly associate director for creativity and culture at the Rockefeller Foundation in New York, has written and published extensively on US/Latino cultural issues.

Introduced by Robert Hoyland, PhD, with a chronology and a detailed bibliography, The Lakhmids of Hira is a required addition to the shelves of any Arabist or Middle East historian.

GLAS New Russian Writing The Little Man
a novel

Liza Alexandrova-Zorina
Translated by Melanie Moore
“Merciless and beautiful prose, pithy and precise . . . leaves no one unmoved.” —Ex Libris “Real-life dialogues, vivid imagery, striking metaphors.”—Literary Russia “A remarkable novel of social discontent written by a sure hand.”—SNOB Gangsters take complete control of an industrial town with its corrupt authorities, business, and police. Defending his daughter, the protagonist accidentally shoots the chief gangster and has to go into hiding, first among the homeless at the town garbage dump, and then in the forest among Saami deer-breeders. He becomes transformed from a “little man” into a people’s avenger, killing the corrupt mayor and the chief of police. Through a series of tricky manipulations, a different person is accused of the serial murders in the interests of the new gangsters, who seize control of the town in the end. The setting—a town on the Kola Peninsula above the Arctic Circle where the author spent her formative years—is clearly meant as a portrait in miniature of all of Russia and expresses young people’s social discontent. Actionpacked and highly revealing, this novel abounds in interesting ethnographic details related to the indigenous Northern tribes of Saami and life in the Northern provinces. A finalist in two major literary contests, Debut and NOS, and winner of the Northern Star Prize, Liza Alexandrova-Zorina (b. 1984) is an outstanding spokeswoman for her generation and a prolific author. The Little Man is also coming out in France and Egypt.
A novel that echoes Crime and Punishment shows how Russians would rather withstand the evil they know than fight for change.

In essays featuring Harold Pinter, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Gertrude Stein, Harlem writer Richard Bruce Nugent, and the so-called conspiracy of modernist gay writers, artists, and musicians, as well as current events of a year, the author perceived us as being “between things.”

Haus Publishing Almost Like Spring
Alex Capus

Alex Capus tells the true story of Switzerland’s most notorious bank robbers, Kurt Sandweg and Waldemar Velte. As the Great Depression tightens its grip, and Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow gain notoriety in Texas, a series of bank robberies make headlines in Switzerland. The prime suspects are two young men, who steal small sums of money from city banks and are unafraid to use force when faced with capture. Meanwhile, a shop assistant in Basel encounters two mysterious yet charismatic men from Wuppertal, with a seemingly insatiable love for jazz; day after day they come to see her, and soon the shop assistant begins to form a romantic attachment to one of the men—though she is not permitted to know her friend’s real name. Capus paints an honest and moving portrait of 1930s Switzerland—the bleak rituals of Nazism are taking shape and permeate Swiss as well as German society, and the two unemployed youths’ dreams of escape to a new life become increasingly corrupted as the bank raids take a violent turn. Yet the humanity of their relationships is juxtaposed against the cruelty of their crimes, and Capus’s subtle prose leaves the reader to distinguish the sacred from the profane. Alex Capus was born in 1961 and has published numerous works, including novels, collections of short stories, essays, and historical accounts, as well as translations into German of A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole and three novels by the John Fante.
Two men flee the Great Depression in Germany to become bank robbers in Switzerland in this engrossing story of recklessness and abandon.

Haus Publishing The Glory of Life
Michael Kumpfmüller
Translated by Anthea Bell

In July 1923, Franz Kafka is convalescing by the Baltic Sea when he meets Dora Diamant and falls in love. Set over the last year of Kafka’s life, the tale of Franz and Dora’s fragile time together in Germany juxtaposes the excitement and vitality of Weimar Berlin with Kafka’s indecision and failing health. Mediated through letters, telegraphs, and the telephone, Michael Kumpfmüller captures the exhilaration of modernity and the essence of a friendship nourished by communication. The Glory of Life meditates on what really makes life worth living. A compelling combination of historical research and fictional reconstruction, this evocative and artful novel captures the inner life of one of the twentieth century’s most influential and revered literary figures. Michael Kumpfmüller was born in Munich, Germany, in 1961 and now lives in Berlin. His debut novel The Adventures of a Bed Salesman (Picador) was published in 2003 to critical acclaim, and his 2009 novel Message to All won the Alfred Döblin Prize.

Haus Publishing The Bible Hunter
The Quest for the Original New Testament

Jürgen Gottschlich
The Codex Sinaiticus is the oldest copy of the New Testament in existence. With a controversial and complex history, the manuscript was discovered in 1844 by the palaeographer Constantin von Tischendorf—a man driven by his obsession with the origins of the Bible—in the Greek Orthodox Monastery of Saint Catherine in the Sinai Desert. With the backing of Tsar Alexander II he removed almost half the parchments from the monks’ protective guard. Part travelogue, part historical study, part critique, The Bible Hunter compellingly interweaves several narrative strands, including the author’s trip to Sinai and the history of the Bible and early Church.

The Night of Physicists
Operation Epilson: Heisenberg, Hahn, Weizsäcker and the German Bomb

Richard von Schirach
In the spring of 1945 the Allies arrested the physicists who were believed to have worked on the German nuclear program. Interned in an English country house owned by MI6, their conversations were secretly recorded. “Operation Epsilon” sought to determine how close Nazi Germany had come to building an atomic bomb. It was in captivity that the interned physicists first heard of the attack on Hiroshima. That night was also one of great shock and personal defeat—they assumed they alone had discovered nuclear fission. This is the story of Nazi Germany’s hunt for an atomic bomb, and a tale of the genius, hubris, and guilt of lauded, respected scientists.

Dickens: London into Kent
Peter Clark

Few novelists have written so intimately of a city as Charles Dickens wrote of London, England. In the first half of this book, Peter Clark illuminates the settings of Dickens’s London scenes as they feature in his novels. Outside London, Kent meant more to Dickens than any other part of Britain. The county pervades his first works of fiction and his favorite novel, David Copperfield. In his last ten years he wrote two novels with strong Kentish themes—Great Expectations and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. This book takes the reader to the places Dickens knew and imaginatively wove into the tapestry of his stories.

Memories of Cyprus

Joachim Sartorius
The history of the island of Cyprus is in many ways a world history. Its strategic position has seen it coveted by one foreign power after another; they all came here and they all left their mark. Aside from the Roman and earlyByzantine ruins of Salamis, the most impressive monuments date from Frankish and Venetian times; the Abbey of Bellapais, the fortified harbor of Kyrenia, and the magnificent cathedrals of Nicosia and Famagusta—the setting for William Shakespeare’s Othello. Joachim Sartorius tells of Cypriot culture and legends, sifting the sediments of the island’s history, including its division after the Turkish invasion of 1974.

Pacific Passages
Travelling the South Seas

Hans-Christof Wächter
The first Europeans to catch sight of the islands of the South Seas believed they had chanced upon paradise, and the tales they told on returning to their homes encouraged others to idealize the islands as a tropical Arcadia. The truth was very different; the apparent idyll of the South Sea islanders was soon shattered by the fatal impact of European discovery. Travel writer HansChristof Wächter sailed to Vanuatu, Ovalau, Fiji, Rarotonga, and the Cook Islands seeking the rhythms of the lives of the islanders, and discovered that the South Sea Islands were never what the Europeans imagined them to be.

I was wrong. He’s simply the best.”—Robert Lipsyte The people of Brazil celebrated when it was announced that they were hosting the twentieth World Cup (June 12–July 13, 2014), the world’s most-viewed sporting tournament, and the thirty-first Summer Olympics (August 5–21, 2016).

Haymarket Books Masters of Mankind
Essays and Lectures, 1969–2013

Noam Chomsky
Introduction by Marcus Raskin
Praise for Noam Chomsky’s Hopes and Prospects: “A revelation. . . . This is a book woven through with hope and awe at all the people who slip beyond imperial control and establish real democracy . . . a treasure-trove.”—The Independent In this collection of essays from 1969 to 2013, many in book form for the first time, Noam Chomsky examines the nature of state power, from the ideologies driving the Cold War to the War on Terror, and reintroduces the moral and legal questions that all too often go unheeded. With unrelenting logic, he holds the arguments of empire up to critical examination and shatters the myths of those who protect the power and privilege of the few against the interests and needs of the many. A new introduction by Marcus Raskin contextualizes Chomsky’s place among some of the most influential thinkers of modern history. Noam Chomsky is Institute Professor in the department of linguistics and philosophy at MIT. His work is widely credited with having revolutionized the field of modern linguistics. He is the author of numerous best-selling political works which have been translated into scores of countries worldwide. His most recent books include the New York Times bestseller Hegemony or Survival, Failed States, Power Systems, Occupy, and Hopes and Prospects. Marcus Raskin, co-founder of the Institute for Policy Studies and professor of public policy at George Washington University, is a social critic, activist, and philosopher.
A brilliant indictment of US imperial power.

Haymarket Books Shadow Government
Surveillance, Secret Wars, and a Global Security State in a Single Superpower World

Tom Engelhardt
Foreword by Glenn Greenwald
Praise for Tom Engelhardt’s The United States of Fear: “Tom Engelhardt, as always, focuses his laser-like intelligence on a core problem that the media avoid. . . . A stunning polemic.”—Mike Davis Praise for The American War of War: “A tour de force.”—Jeremy Scahill In 1964, a book entitled The Invisible Government shocked Americans with its revelations of a growing world of intelligence agencies playing fast and loose around the planet, a secret government lodged inside the one they knew that even the president didn’t fully control. Almost half a century later, everything about that “invisible government” has grown vastly larger, more disturbing, and far more visible. In his new book, Tom Engelhardt takes in something new under the sun: what is no longer, as in the 1960s, a national security state, but a global security one, fighting secret wars that have turned the president into an assassin-in-chief. Shadow Government offers a powerful survey of a democracy of the wealthy that your grandparents wouldn’t have recognized. Tom Engelhardt created and runs the TomDispatch.com website, a project of the Nation Institute, where he is a fellow. He is the author of The American Way of War and The United States of Fear, both published by Haymarket Books; a highly praised history of American triumphalism in the cold war, The End of Victory Culture; and of a novel, The Last Days of Publishing. He lives in New York. Glenn Greenwald is a columnist on civil liberties and US national security issues for the Guardian.
A powerful survey of a militarized America building a surveillance structure unparalleled in history.

Haymarket Books Capitalism
A Ghost Story

Arundhati Roy
Praise for Arundhati Roy’s Field Notes on Democracy: “Gorgeously wrought . . . pitch-perfect prose. . . . In language of terrible beauty, she takes India’s everyday tragedies and reminds us to be outraged all over again.”—Time “In her searing account, Roy asks whether our shriveled forms of democracy will be ‘the endgame of the human race’—and shows vividly why this is a prospect not to be lightly dismissed.”—Noam Chomsky This collection of essays—framed around a tour-de-force essay on the vital role of foundations in the history of empire, delivered at Princeton University—shows how the demands of globalized capitalism have subjugated billions of people around the world to dispossession, exclusion, and exploitation. Arundhati Roy also writes of the vibrant resistance in Kashmir to occupation, and, with her remarkable passion, keen insight, and writer’s eye, takes on the forces that would subject the vibrant social movements and cultures of the world to the narrow imperatives of profit and privilege. Arundhati Roy is a world-renowned Indian author and global justice activist. From her celebrated Booker Prize–winning novel The God of Small Things to her prolific output of writing on topics ranging from climate change to war, the perils of free-market “development” in India, and the defense of the poor, Roy’s voice has become indispensable to millions seeking a better word. Her recent nonfiction books include Field Notes on Democracy and Walking with the Comrades. She lives in New Delhi, India.
With anger and compassion, Arundhati Roy exposes the sordid underbelly and dark inhumanity of capitalism in India and around the globe.

Haymarket Books Bitter Legacy
The United States in the Middle East

Naseer Aruri

Since 1948, the question of Palestine has been the focus of numerous United Nations resolutions that uphold the right of the Palestinians to return to their land, establish their own independent state alongside Israel, receive compensation, and gain restitution. Any redress to the Palestinians, however, has been preempted by Israeli and American obstinacy and diplomatic maneuvering, in part through manipulation of the “peace process.” The marginalization of international law, together with the growing ascendancy of the role of Israel, promoted and protected by the United States’s virtually total diplomatic control over regional negotiations, have combined to create a situation in which blame for the Palestinian catastrophe is placed on the victims of the occupation. American assistance to the Israelis is not limited to diplomatic support in international institutions. The United States has also paid for much of the Israeli’s military. This has left a bitter legacy that Washington can only address by taking seriously its responsibilities to all the people of the region through a balanced foreign policy that is consistent with contemporary norms of human rights. Naseer Aruri is a chancellor professor emeritus of political science at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. His many publications include Dishonest Broker, Obstruction of Peace, and Palestinian Refugees: The Right of Return. He was a member of the board of directors of Human Rights Watch/Middle East and a threeterm member of the board of directors of Amnesty International USA.

An Infantile Disorder

Vladimir Lenin
Edited by Ahmed Shawki
Few figures from the revolutionary struggles of the early twentieth century continue to be more polarizing than Vladimir Lenin. Caricatured by both the defenders of the market and those remaining political apologists for state socialism as an inflexible and impatient insurrectionist, in this pamphlet— perhaps his most important and relevant work—Lenin makes a clear argument that for radicals, struggling through existing democratic channels is not an option, but an essential step on the road to revolution.

Marx and Nature
A Red and Green Perspective

Paul Burkett, PhD
Foreword by John Bellamy Foster Introduction by Paul Burkett
Though infrequently viewed as an environmental thinker, Karl Marx insisted that production as a social and material process is shaped and constrained by both historically developed relations among producers and natural conditions. Paul Burkett shows that it is Marx’s overriding concern with human emancipation that impels him to approach nature from the standpoint of materialist history, sociology, and critical political economy.

Holy Cow! Press The Bloody Tide
Polemics, Politics, Poetry

Jane Yolen
Jane Yolen’s new collection of sixty political poems presents us with a courageous perspective of our most troubling events: the Holocaust, the Boston massacre, endless war, global warming—all with a search for the moral imperative. From “Listening to the News Reminds Me of Yeats”: . . . Yeats set it all down first: that bloody tide of change and not-change, that bloody intensity of right and not-right, the beast stalking the presidency down the twisty, blackened capitol streets. We were warned, we did not listen, and the teeth are at the back of our necks. Soon they will be at the front. In “Fahrenheit,” Yolen protests the burning of her book because a character is gay: Before the arson could be stopped, a year of my writing went up in flames. Far away on the East Coast of America I felt the heat of it burning my cheeks. Somewhere in Germany, an old man dances. Jane Yolen, often called “the Hans Christian Andersen of America,” is the author of over 340 books, including Owl Moon and The Devil’s Arithmetic.
Jane Yolen’s spirited poems of political protest are an impassioned call for social justice, equality, and peace in a troubled world. Marketing Plans

Holy Cow! Press Tourist in the Pure Land
Kate Green

Kate Green’s second full-length book of poetry spans twenty-five years of writing, an accumulation of lyricism layered with wisdom. Her poems illuminate ordinary, broken things, drawing us toward the transcendent in the everyday. She is a native Minnesota poet, and her verse is grounded in that northern realm. But her work is anything but provincial, evoking as it does images and sensations that resonate within us all. Her recollection of her father’s mystical quest for the deep-swimming walleyed pike—“monstrous lunkers, dying of old age”—is both amusing and recognizable to anyone with their own obsessions. From lush Caribbean islands to the arid hills of New Mexico to the innermost recesses of her own body, this poet’s vibrant voice takes the reader into her own “pure land.” From “Question for the Newborn”: if you think back maybe it will come to you, the ecstatic pain of cells dividing, face coiling out of the brain, the time in the mothery sea when the outside of your face was the same as your mind and your skin was not a shell but the inside of a flower that in turn was a wound so open we call it human. Kate Green’s poetry has received two Bush Foundation Fellowships in Poetry and a Loft McKnight Award. Her novel Shattered Moon was nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award and was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection. She has published four other mystery novels and eight books for children. She teaches college writing in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Icon Books Introducing Business Creativity
A Practical Guide

Jodie Newman

In an increasingly competitive business world, both individuals and companies need to be able to set themselves apart from the rest whilst being mindful of running an efficient business. As processes, transactions, manufacturing, and a whole other host of operational activities become increasingly automated and bring efficiencies to the bottom line, what is it that will propel a business to be better than their competitors? In a word: ideas. Ideas are the most valuable currency of our business landscape and will only become more important in the future. Why? Because creativity cannot be automated. An automated telephone service that deals with your customers is brilliant at taking payment or giving order statuses, but it is pretty rubbish at coming up with ways to wow your customers and delight them with new initiatives. Introducing Business Creativity: A Practical Guide provides innovative techniques and proven theories to help you improve your creative thinking and get more out of yourself and your business. Whether you are trying to develop entirely new initiatives or redesign the way you operate, this book will help you break out of your old patterns of thought, think outside the box, and generate pioneering ideas that you can put into action. • • • • Understand your brain and its capacity for creativity Think differently with effective creative thinking tools Put ideas at the heart of your business Reap the rewards of a business built around ideas

Ig Publishing Point of Direction
Rachel Weaver

Hitchhiking her way through Alaska, a young woman named Anna is picked up by Kyle, a fisherman. Anna and Kyle quickly fall for one another, as they are both adventurous, fiercely independent, and in love with the raw beauty and solitude of Alaska. To cement their relationship, they agree to become caretakers of a remote lighthouse perched on a small rock in the middle of the deep channel—a place that has been uninhabited since the last caretaker mysteriously disappeared two decades ago. What seems the perfect adventure for these two quickly unravels, as an uncertain danger lurking in the surrounding waters, as well as painful secrets from their pasts, threatens to end their relationship . . . and maybe even their lives! A psychological thriller set against the cold, rugged landscape of coastal Alaska, Point of Direction is an exquisite and striking literary debut. Rachel Weaver holds an MFA in writing and poetics from Naropa University. An excerpt from Point of Direction, along with two other pieces of her fiction, was chosen to represent Naropa University in the Harcourt Brace Best New Voices in American Fiction contest for 2006, 2007, and 2008. Her work has been published in the Gettysburg Review, Blue Mesa Review, and the Ontario Review. She currently lives in Colorado.
A young couple’s painful, buried past is brought to the surface when they become the caretakers of an abandoned lighthouse.

Strike Back
Using the Militant Tactics of Labor’s Past to Reignite Public Sector Unionism Today

Joe Burns
During the 1960s and 1970s, hundreds of thousands of teachers, sanitation workers, and other public employees rose up to demand collective bargaining rights in one of the greatest upsurges. These workers were able to transform the nature of public employment, win union recognition for millions, and ultimately force reluctant politicians to pass laws allowing for collective bargaining and even the right to strike. Strike Back uncovers this history of militancy to provide tactics for a new generation of public employees facing unprecedented attacks on their collective bargaining rights.

Photographs by Fred Stein
Edited by Dawn Freer Text by Cilly Kugelmann and Gilles Mora
Fred Stein (1909–1967) was a master of street photography. As an early pioneer of the hand-held camera, he captured poignant moments in the street life of two of the world’s great cities: Paris and New York, where he lived after fleeing from Nazi Germany. This same immediacy infuses his portraits of the great personalities of the era, among them Albert Einstein, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Marc Chagall. Stein’s images are a vital document of the twentieth century and an important part of photo history. He left behind an existensive oeuvre which this publication presents comprehensively for the first time.

Kehrer Verlag Memory of Trees
Photographs by Kathryn Cook
Text by François Cheval and Karin Karakasli
In the early 1900s, as the Ottoman Empire collapsed, a fiercely nationalistic movement took power. As with all ideologies, their taking hold meant the termination of what didn’t fit its new identity—its Christian Armenian citizens. Memory of Trees follows the remains and traces of an ambiguous, dark history— the great crime recognized today as genocide by more than a dozen countries. Kathryn Cook traveled across Turkey and Armenia, to Syria, Lebanon, and Israel, sifting through the remains of this legacy and tracking down survivors. Her images emphasize the emotional tonality of the story rather than documenting specific events.

Bittersweet
Photographs by Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt
Introduction by Jean-Christophe Bailly
Monkey or dog, animals strange or familiar, Belgian photographer Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt does not differentiate. He fixes a moment of meeting between two beings, so close, so different. Beyond the bizarre, beyond the comical nature that underscores without caricaturizing, there is a respect of the other, a tenderness, a humility in his photographs that charges them with rare emotion. Since he began looking through his Leica’s viewfinder, he has created pure and elegant photographs marked by a constant sense of humor. His compositions are arranged with a steady eye while managing to transform real life moments into often mysterious images.

In this body of work, I deal with my insecurities about my body image and the direct correlation between self-perception and the way one is perceived by others. Photography is the medium that I use to tell my story through life, an outlet for revealing my thoughts and opinions about the society in which we live.

Intermarried
Photographs and text by Yael Ben-Zion
Text by Maurice Berger and Amy Chua
Following her award-winning monograph 5683 miles away, Yael Ben-Zion fixes her camera on another personal but politically charged theme: intermarriage. Ben-Zion initiated the project in 2009, inviting couples who define themselves as “mixed” to participate. Her own marriage “mixed,” she was interested in the many challenges faced by couples who choose to share their lives regardless of their different origins, ethnicities, races, or religions. Through layered images and revealing texts—by much debated Chinese American author Amy Chua, among others—Intermarried weaves together fragments of reality to compose a subtle narrative that deals with the multifaceted issues posed by intermarriage.

Photographs by Mila Teshaieva
Text by Christoph Moeskes and Maya Iskenderova
For over four years, award-winning Ukranian photographer Mila Teshaieva has documented the transformation of the three former Soviet republics on the shores of the Caspian Sea: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan. The battle for control of the region’s vast oil and gas reserves and the search for a national identity have led to far-reaching changes for the population, the environment, and general social values. Teshaieva’s images reveal an atmosphere of insecurity, where people pin their hopes and expectations on a transformation whose direction remains uncertain. This series was the winner of the Photolucida’s Critical Mass Book Award 2012.

War Games
Photographs by David Levinthal
Text by Paul Roth, Dave Hickey, and Kaitlin Booher
David Levinthal, a central figure in the history of American postmodern photography, has staged uncanny tableaux using toys and miniature dioramas for nearly forty years. This publication for the first time assembles the artist’s photography on the subject of war. Levinthal’s combat-related tableaux constitute a remarkable critique of the ways society experiences conflict through its portrayal. His groundbreaking project “Hitler Moves East” (1975–77), a series of imagined scenes from World War II’s Russian front, first established his reputation, becoming a touchstone for the iconoclastic generation of American photographers that includes artists like Cindy Sherman and Richard Prince.

Kehrer Verlag The New Forty-Niners
Photographs by Sarina Finkelstein
Text by Kevin Fagan and Lucy Davies
Shot over four years, The New Forty-Niners documents the new wave of gold prospectors who have rushed to California 160 years after the original Gold Rush of 1849. The tactile and earthy photographs show the gamblers, the adventurers, the desperate, and the young-at-heart in their camps and on claims spread across this magnificently wild landscape. The elemental rugged life of these passionate and obsessive individuals is juxtaposed with gold souvenir shops, bars, and motels celebrating the mining history of the Golden State. Texts are by Pulitzer Prize–nominated reporter Kevin Fagan (San Francisco Chronicle) and British photo critic Lucy Davies (The Telegraph).

Tales from the City of Gold
Photographs by Jason Larkin
Text by Mara Kardas-Nelson and Julian Rodriguez
In sensitive landscapes, British photographer Jason Larkin explores the vast tailings, waste dumps created by Johannesburg’s historic gold-mining industry, a territory where history, economy, and contemporary South Africa collide. Over the decades, life on and around these dormant and toxic remains has developed. However, as the price of gold escalates, the latent gold in older dumps makes reprocessing of these historic mounds an economic reality. The removal is seen by most as positive, but for the thousands whose lives have developed around them, life is uncertain as Johannesburg moves into a new chapter of its ongoing history.

Kehrer Verlag Photographic Darkroom— Photogenic Obsolence
Photographs and text by Michel Campeau
Text by Olivier Asselin and Serge Tisseron
Since 2003, Canadian photographer Michel Campeau has traveled the world to photograph darkrooms. These chambers of analog photography, where icons of picture making were crafted through the use of chemicals on silver gelatin paper, today seem like allusions to a time long gone. Martin Parr wrote about it: “Most photographers have spent hours and days in that peculiar environment known as the darkroom. Here, prints are magically created using chemicals and light. Campeau’s photographs show the passing of an era. As digital production takes hold to a greater and greater extent, we will look back at these images and mourn the darkroom’s passing.”

Light Shift
Photographs by Peter Schlör
Text by Milan Chlumsky
The sensitive handling of light has distinguished Peter Schlör’s photographic work for more than two decades. In his most recent compositions as well, elements unnoticed at first glance gradually emerge in what initially seemed to be abstract black-and-white fields. The landscape in Turkey or the Canary Islands that was at first perceived as “untamed nature” turns out to be a civilized landscape—attesting to the intervention of human hands. By harking back to the grand tradition of landscape painting, Peter Schlör restores to photography its original description as “héliogravure”: drawing with light.

My Mind is Racing
Photographs and text by Jory Hull
Text by Julian Sander
Grown up as a typical car-obsessed American kid, Jory Hull explores the primitive, fascinating elegance of racing vehicles from a bygone era. The artist frames these machines as the colorful, handmade tools that they are, often abstracting their details into almost pure graphic compositions. This series of photographs, taken over the course of a decade, capture the surfaces and inner workings of these objects at rest, revealing unusual details of these machines designed for fierce competition, created to live at high speed. The quiet beauty of these cars at rest, one imagines the sights and sounds of them at full fury.

Kehrer Verlag Metamatic Reloaded
Text by Andres Pardey and Roland Wetzel

In the mid-1950s Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925–1991) began the production of a series titled Méta-Matics: machines that produced art works. Tinguely not only problematized the introduction of the robotic machine as interface in our society, but also questioned the role of the artist, the art work, and the viewer. Recently the Metamatic Research Initiative in Amsterdam mounted a competition to explore the potential of drawing machines for art today. Ten selected projects prove the continued relevance of the theme, amongst them a performance-pavilion by Marina Abramovic, ´ a large environment by Thomas Hirschhorn, and an installation by Jon Kessler. Artists include Marina Abramovic, ´ Ranjit Bhatnagar, John Bock, Olav Breuning, Thomas Hirschhorn, Aleksandra Hirszfeld, Jon Kessler, Pors & Rao, Joao Simoes, and Brigitte Zieger.

Long River Press Gaokao
A Personal Journey Behind China’s Examination Culture

Yanna Gong

I finally understood that my parents were heroically upholding the values of the society they grew up in. For me, this book is not just an investigation into the Chinese education system: it is personal. Gaokao (pronounced “gow cow”) is the term used since the days of Imperial China when the only way to advance in society was to undertake rigorous examinations to be promoted into the civil service system. Today, the word is still very much in use to describe the fervor surrounding many Chinese, Asian, and even non-Asian parents and students as they prepare for exam taking in China and in the other countries, including the United States. Growing up in both Chinese and American cultures, Yanna Gong reveals the details of her own life to show how the often relentless drive toward academic excellence is the norm for many Asian and Asian American kids, as well as entire families, whose collective neurosis has become a global phenomenon. But at what cost, both mentally and physically? This highly personal account is a must-read for educators, parents, and kids. Yanna Gong is a high school senior in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. This is her first book.

How Do You Pray? was born from a vision in which Celeste Yacoboni was told to ask the world, “How Do You Pray?” She reached out to leading spiritual, shamanic, scientific teachers, guides, and activists and asked for their response. Culled from those responses is an original and deeply personal collection of essays. Talking intimately and candidly about how they pray, these personalities encourage the reader to contemplate the intention of prayer in their own life. This collection speaks to the reader’s heart and asks What is your soul’s expression? How do you dance in ecstasy, bare your soul to the divine? Bow in gratitude? Merge with nature? Cry out for guidance? How do you pray? This groundbreaking and moving book gathers responses from leaders of diverse spiritual and religious traditions ranging from Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who do not claim one or any particular walk of faith. Contributors include Brother David Steindl-Rast, Matthew Fox, James O’Dea, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Tessa Bielecki, Lama Surya Das, Hank Wesselman, Father Bede Griffiths, Byron Katie, Joan Halifax, Normandi Ellis, Andrew Harvey, Dan Millman, Kristena Prater, Nicki Scully, Mirabai Starr, and more. This book is a beautiful gift package with matte laminate cover and red ribbon.
One hundred and eight well-known spiritual leaders respond to the question, “How do you pray?”

New Internationalist Saving our Sad and Beautiful World
Alternatives to Capitalism

Richard Swift

With capitalism vulnerable and out-of-step in the wake of financial crises, this book investigates the alternatives that are on offer—including socialism, anarchism, and deep ecology. It picks its way through the pockets of resistant thinking and emerges with paths to changing the world that rest less on rigid ideology imposed from above than on practical transformation from below. Richard Swift is former editor of New Internationalist magazine and author of the No-Nonsense Guide to Democracy. In 2011, he won the Daniel Singer Millenium Prize for an original essay which helps further socialist ideas.

People Over Capital
The Co-operative Alternative to Capitalism

Edited by Rob Harrison

Capitalism is failing and ordinary people are forced to pay the price. With such deep-rooted problems there is real hunger for alternative ways of organizing our economic system. Answering the question, “Is there a co-operative alternative to capitalism?” this book showcases fourteen responses from economists, academics, co-operators, politicians, and campaigners, exploring both the success and untapped potential of co-operatives. Each essay approaches from a new direction—from the flourishing open source movement to cases of co-operative success in different parts of the world. Rob Harrison has written and commented widely on social change issues for more than twenty years.

New Society Publishers The Compassionate Hunter’s Guidebook
Hunting from the Heart

Miles Olson
Wild meat, hunted in a responsible way, is one of the most healthful, sustainable foods possible. Depending on how it is done, hunting can be as local, intimate, and humane as it gets. And aside from this, it demands the hunter enter a world of awareness, wildness, life, and death that as a culture we have forgotten. The Compassionate Hunter’s Guidebook is a guide for those that come to the act of hunting with pure intentions, motivated by a desire for healthy food that comes directly from the land where they live. This practical manual suggests that hunting is not a “sport” and the animals whose lives are taken are not “game.” It combines a deep, philosophical exploration of the ethics of killing with detailed instructions on every step of the process including: • • • • Understanding your prey Tools, techniques, and preparation The act of the hunt From forest to table—processing, preserving, and preparing your kill

A unique and comprehensive, fully illustrated guide to the complexity, ethics, and spirit of the hunt, The Compassionate Hunter’s Guidebook is a must-read for beginning and experienced hunters alike. It will appeal to anyone who wishes to delve more deeply into the complex, humbling, and ultimately profound reality of our relationship with the food that nourishes us. Miles Olson has spent the past decade immersed in learning and practicing earth skills. The author of Unlearn, Rewild, his experiences living on the land have made him an expert on rewilding.
A comprehensive, practical guide for the ethical, compassionate hunter.

New Society Publishers Grow a Sustainable Diet
Planning and Growing to Feed Ourselves and the Earth

Cindy Conner

Everyone loves to prepare a meal with ingredients fresh from their own garden. But for most of us, no matter how plentiful our harvest, homegrown produce comprises only a fraction of what we eat. And while many gardening guides will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about individual crops, few tackle the more involved task of helping you maximize the percentage of your diet you grow yourself. Grow a Sustainable Diet will help you develop a comprehensive, customized garden plan to produce the maximum number of calories and nutrients from any available space. Avoid arriving in August buried under a mountain of kale or zucchini (and not much else) by making thoughtful choices at the planning stage, focusing on dietary staples and key nutrients. Learn how to calculate: • Which food and cover crops are best for your specific requirements • How many seeds and plants of each variety you should sow • What and when to plant, harvest, and replant for maximum yield

Focusing on permaculture principles, bio-intensive gardening methods, getting food to the table with minimum fossil fuel input, and growing crops that sustain both you and your soil, this complete guide is a must-read for anyone working towards food self-sufficiency for themselves or their family. Cindy Conner is a permaculture educator, founder of Homeplace Earth, and the producer of two popular instructional DVDs on sustainable gardening. Her passion is exploring growing a complete diet in a small space while minimizing the use of fossil fuels.

New Society Publishers The Market Gardener
A Successful Grower’s Handbook for Small-Scale Organic Farming

Jean-Martin Fortier
Foreword by Severine von Tscharner Fleming, The Greenhorns Illustrated by Marie Bilodeau
Les Jardins de la Grelinette is a micro-farm located in eastern Quebec, just north of the American border. Growing on just 1.5 acres, owners Jean-Martin and Maude-Helène feed more than two hundred families through their thriving CSA and seasonal market stands and supply their signature mesclun salad mix to dozens of local establishments. The secret of their success is the lowtech, high-yield production methods they’ve developed by focusing on growing better rather than growing bigger, making their operation more lucrative and viable in the process. The Market Gardener is a compendium of la Grelinette’s proven horticultural techniques and innovative growing methods. This complete guide is packed with practical information on: • Setting-up a micro-farm by designing biologically intensive cropping systems, all with negligible capital outlay • Farming without a tractor and minimizing fossil fuel inputs through the use of the best hand tools, appropriate machinery, and minimum tillage practices • Growing mixed vegetables systematically with attention to weed and pest management, crop yields, harvest periods, and pricing approaches Inspired by the French intensive tradition of maraichage and by iconic American vegetable grower Eliot Coleman, author and farmer Jean-Martin shows by example how to start a market garden and make it both very productive and profitable. Making a living wage farming without big capital outlay or acreages may be closer than you think. Jean-Martin Fortier is a passionate advocate of strong local food systems and founder of Les Jardins de la Grelinette, an internationally recognized model for successful biointensive micro-farming.
Grow better not bigger with proven low-tech, human-scale, biointensive farming methods.

New Society Publishers Field Exercises
How Veterans Are Healing Themselves through Farming and Outdoor Activities

Stephanie Westlund

There are nearly twenty-five million veterans and active-duty soldiers in North America. Some experts estimate that more than one quarter of these men and women suffer from post-traumatic distress, and many other military personnel experience difficulty reintegrating into civilian life. While conventionally prescribed treatments primarily involve medication and therapy, many people are discovering additional ways to manage their injuries and reduce their suffering. Field Exercises: How Veterans Are Healing Themselves through Farming and Outdoor Activities shares the compelling stories of men and women who are finding relief from stressful and traumatic military experiences while also establishing community networks and other peer support initiatives. Stephanie Westlund examines: • The deep and far-reaching connections between nature and human health • The tremendous impact of stress and trauma on survivors’ lives • Resources and groups providing opportunities in the emerging field of “green therapy”
PSYCHOLOGY / HEALTH & FITNESS June 6 x 9 | 240 pp 10 B&W photographs Trade Paper US $17.95 978-0-86571-761-9 W* (excludes Canada) eBook available

This book will appeal to millions of North American soldiers, veterans and their loved ones, doctors, psychiatrists, social workers and other caregivers, other groups struggling with high rates of stress and post-traumatic experience, and all those interested in the relationship between nature and human health. Stephanie Westlund holds a PhD in peace and conflict studies. She has been conducting research with veterans since 2009, and continues to be inspired by their courage and personal resolve to move through pain toward recovery, and their unrelenting desire to serve their communities.

New Society Publishers Decline and Fall
The End of Empire and the Future of Democracy in 21st Century America

John Michael Greer
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. Although he was writing nearly a century ago, William Butler Yeats could just as easily be describing the United States today. The decline and fall of America’s global empire is the central feature of today’s geopolitical landscape, and the nature of our response to it will determine much of our future trajectory, with implications that reach far beyond the limits of one nation’s borders. Decline and Fall: The End of Empire and the Future of Democracy in 21st Century America challenges the conventional wisdom of empire. Using a wealth of historical examples combined with groundbreaking original analysis, author John Michael Greer: • Shows how the United States has backed itself into a blind corner in the pursuit of political and economic power • Explores the inevitable consequences of imperial collapse • Proposes a renewal of democratic institutions as the only constructive way forward By shifting the conversation from whether today’s American empire should survive to whether it can survive, and arguing persuasively that the answer to the latter question is “no,” Decline and Fall makes an invaluable contribution to the body of speculative post-industrial literature. This book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the state of the Union, or who believes that the time has come to reinvent the American Dream. John Michael Greer is a scholar of ecological history, an internationally renowned Peak Oil theorist, and the author of more than thirty books, including The Long Descent.
All empires fall, and America is no exception. What comes next?

New Society Publishers Reclaiming the Commons for the Common Good
Heather Menzies
Commoning was a way of life for most of our ancestors. In Reclaiming the Commons for the Common Good, author Heather Menzies journeys to her roots in the Scottish Highlands, where her family lived in direct relation with the land since before recorded time. Beginning with an intimate account of unearthing the heritage of the commons and the real tragedy of its loss, Menzies offers a detailed description of the self-organizing, self-governing, and self-informing principles of this nearly forgotten way of life, including its spiritual practices and traditions. She then identifies pivotal commons practices that could be usefully revived today. A final “manifesto” section pulls these facets together into a unified vision for reclaiming the commons, drawing a number of current popular initiatives into the commoning frame, such as local food security, permaculture, and the Occupy Movement. An engaging memoir of personal and political discovery, Reclaiming the Commons for the Common Good combines moving reflections on our common heritage with a contemporary call to action, individually and collectively; locally and globally. Readers will be inspired by the book’s vision of reviving the commons ethos of empathy and mutual respect, and energized by her practical suggestions for connecting people and place for the common good. Heather Menzies is an award-winning writer and scholar and member of the Order of Canada. She is the author of nine books, including Whose Brave New World? and No Time.
An intimate journey of personal and political discovery and a call to action.

New Society Publishers Think Like a Commoner
A Short Introduction to the Life of the Commons

David Bollier

The biggest “tragedy of the commons” is the misconception that commons are failures—relics from another era rendered unnecessary by the market and state. Think Like a Commoner dispels such prejudices by explaining the rich history and promising future of the commons—an ageless paradigm of cooperation and fairness that is re-making our world. With graceful prose and dozens of fascinating stories, David Bollier describes the quiet revolution that is pioneering practical forms of selfgovernance and production controlled by people themselves. Think Like a Commoner explains how the commons: • Is an exploding field of DIY innovation ranging from Wikipedia and seed-sharing to community forests, collaborative consumption, and beyond • Challenges the standard narrative of market economics by explaining how cooperation generates significant value and human fulfillment • Provides a framework of law and social action that can help us move beyond the pathologies of neoliberal capitalism We have a choice: ignore the commons and suffer the ongoing private plunder of our common wealth, or Think Like a Commoner and learn how to rebuild our society and reclaim our shared inheritance. This accessible, comprehensive introduction to the commons will surprise and enlighten you, and provoke you to action. David Bollier is an author, activist, blogger, and independent scholar. He is the author of six books on different aspects of the commons, including Green Governance, The Wealth of the Commons, and Viral Spiral, and is a frequent speaker at conferences, colleges and universities, and policy workshops.
A new world based on fairness, self-reliance, and pride is closer than you think . . . if you learn to think like a commoner.

New Society Publishers Earthen Floors
A Modern Approach to an Ancient Practice

Sukita Reay Crimmel and James Thomson

For most of human history, people have lived in durable, comfortable buildings made from natural materials such as soil, sand, rocks, and fiber. All over the globe, these ancient traditions persist; a quarter to a third of the world’s population today lives in houses built partially or entirely of earth. Conventional Western building techniques using industrial materials may save time and create efficiencies, but these perceived savings come at considerable financial and environmental cost. As well as boasting a unique and beautiful aesthetic, natural building techniques are accessible, affordable, and non-toxic. Earthen Floors: A Modern Approach to an Ancient Practice is the first comprehensive, fully illustrated manual covering the history, use, and maintenance of this attractive, practical flooring option. This detailed, fully illustrated guide explains every part of the process, including: • • • • Sourcing and harvesting materials Preparing the subfloor Pouring, finishing, and sealing the floor Living with and maintaining your earthen floor

Because information on creating quality earthen floors was not previously widely available, there have been some negative experiences. Drawing on the combined knowledge of the most qualified earthen floor practitioners, as well their own substantial experience, the authors deliver the definitive resource for this exciting technique, perfect for everyone from the novice to veteran builder. Sukita Reay Crimmel has installed over twenty thousand square feet of earthen flooring, and is one of the preeminent experts in the emerging field of earthen floors. James Thomson is part of House Alive, one of the leading natural building training organizations in the country.
Down and dirty—a complete step-by-step guide to making, installing, and living with beautiful, all-natural earthen floors.

New Society Publishers The Farm Then and Now
A Model for Sustainable Living

Douglas Stevenson

In the Summer of Love in San Francisco’s Haight-Asbury, a charismatic young hippie by the name of Stephen Gaskin launched “Monday Night Class”— a weekly event which drew together an eclectic mix of truth-seekers and flower children. Soon the class became a caravan, and after touring the country this colorful crew decided to seek a plot of land and found a commune based on their shared values. Thus was born The Farm in Summertown, Tennessee. The Farm Then and Now presents the story of a group that has defied the odds, blending idealism with a practical approach to intentional community and creating a model for sustainable living. Just as the Monday Night Classes taught students to open their hearts and minds, The Farm continues as a school of change, demonstrating ways to operate collectively in terms of: • Land, water, and stewardship • Health care, building, and infrastructure • Cooperation, compassion, and spiritual values For humans to survive as a species, we must relearn the skills needed to work together; the lessons of The Farm can be applied in any community or organization. The Farm Then and Now addresses both the successes and shortcomings of this unique ongoing social experiment, showing how what was once the largest commune in the world has evolved into an exceptional example of living lightly on the earth. Douglas Stevenson has been a member of The Farm Community for forty years. His company Green Life Retreats hosts the Farm Experience Weekend and other instructional seminars about sustainable living.
From commune to ecovillage—an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of the world’s best-known intentional community.

New Village Press Building Together
Case Studies in Participatory Planning and Community Building

Roger Katan with Ronald Shiffman
Participatory planning, far from being a fashionable or politically correct form of practice, is probably the only approach that can achieve a community’s goal for security, shelter, stability and human happiness. With case studies of neighborhood developments from North and South America, Europe, and Africa that span more than forty years, Building Together offers essential understanding of participatory, collaborative processes that support civil society and sustain democratic cultures. It includes large-scale urban projects such as “Listening the City,” which engaged more than five thousand New York citizens in the rebuilding effort after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, and smaller appropriate-technology architectural projects such as self-help assisted housing on Tumaco island at the southern tip of Colombia, South America. Although the cases in this book appear to be highly disparate, involving very different communities and contexts, they were all inspired by the same overarching goal—to help people, whatever their socioeconomic status, better understand the forces acting upon them and organize themselves to have a true say in the construction of their environments. Roger Katan is a French American architect, artist, and educator, renowned as a proponent of the community-based design practices of participatory architecture and advocacy planning. He has been a university instructor, international consultant, lecturer, activist, and author on the subject. Ron Shiffman is the former director of the Pratt Center for Community Development, which he cofounded in 1964. He is currently a professor at Pratt’s Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment.
A seminal treatise, with US and international case studies, on the community-based design practices of participatory planning and advocacy architecture. Also Available

Nicholas Brealey Publishing Click.ology
What Works in Online Shopping and How Your Business Can Use Consumer Psychology to Succeed

Graham Jones
Online shopping continues to grow at an astounding rate: in 2012, more than $1 trillion was spent in online retailers alone. The nature of shopping is drastically changing, but with so little information on how best to interact with online customers, how are businesses to succeed? With Click.ology, internet psychologist Graham Jones has filled that gap. Through years of research into Internet psychology and online consumer habits, Jones has written the first how-to of its kind for online businesses. With his C.L.I.C.K. system, businesses will learn the crucial ways in which online shopping differs from traditional brick-and-mortar salesmanship and how to tweak their websites to avoid the dreaded “abandoned shopping cart.” Jones tackles tricky psychological subjects such as priming customers for a certain price point and the social aspect of online shopping in a way that makes his strategies easy to implement. In addition to these essential tips, Jones investigates the fast-paced future of ecommerce and what businesses can do to stay ahead of the game. In an online world where customers make their choices in a matter of seconds, Click.ology distills the essentials every company in the online economy needs to know in order to turn clicks into dollars. Graham Jones is an Internet psychologist who helps businesses understand the online behavior of their customers and website visitors. He was one of the first psychologists in the world to start investigating the way human behavior has adapted to the online world. He lives in the United Kingdom.

Nicholas Brealey Publishing The Brain Sell
When Science Meets Shopping; How the new mind sciences and the persuasion industry are reading our thoughts, influencing our emotions, and stimulating us to shop

David Lewis, PhD
In a room sat a theoretical physicist, an engineer, a mathematician, a biochemist, and a neuropsychologist. Their task? To evaluate the effectiveness of a marketing campaign for a grooming product that retails for less than $15.00. The Brain Sell, praised as the new Hidden Persuaders, is the inside story of how our rapidly evolving understanding of the brain plays into the advertising, marketing, and retailing industry. With the emergence of Big Data mining, the “persuasion industry” is more prominent than ever. David Lewis, PhD, internationally renowned researcher, brings science to shopping—mapping the brain and the body to explore the sensitivities in our minds and discover how we select and buy. Gone are the days of traditional salesmanship—in the United Kingdom and United States alone, $313 billion is spent annually on subliminal messaging and measuring consumers’ subconscious reactions to the color of a child’s toy, the smell of a store’s interior, or the font of the smallest letter on a soup can. Lewis repeatedly surprises with secrets from the advertising and marketing industries, revealing the scientific strategies used to evaluate and manipulate consumer response. An enlightening read for marketers and advertisers and an urgently important one for anyone who considers themselves a “smart shopper.” The Brain Sell shows that even after the product is on the shelf and the commercial is over, the sales pitch goes on. David Lewis, PhD, a neuropsychologist, is founder and director at the independent research consultancy Mindlab International based at the University of Sussex. Additionally, he is a psychologist, an international lecturer, and acclaimed author, most recently of Impulse (Harvard University Press). Dubbed the “father of neuromarketing” for his pioneering studies of analyzing brain activity for research and commercial purposes, he currently specializes in noninvasive techniques for measuring human responses under real life conditions.
How neuromarketing techniques help marketers more effectively sell their products—and what consumers need to know about it.

The Science of Success

Richard Koch

What does Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection prove about developing a niche product line? How can Isaac Newton’s laws of motion and gravity help in a crowded marketplace? This is a must-have book for business leaders looking for clear, evidence-based reasoning that explains why some companies seem to find success everywhere they turn, while others don’t make progress.

Living the 80/20 Way
Work Less, Worry Less, Succeed More, Enjoy More

Richard Koch
In Living the 80/20 Way, a self-help bestseller, Richard Koch returns to show how working and worrying less can transform our personal lives. Koch takes the widely renowned 80/20 principle, which Tim Ferriss praised as “the cornerstone of results-based living,” and shows how in today’s cluttered and stressful world, working out the few things that are really important, and the few methods that will give us those things, leads to increased happiness and greater success. Living the 80/20 Way explains why “less is more” isn’t just a saying, but a sure-fire method to achieve your goals and live your best life.

Nicholas Brealey Publishing The Trouble with Europe
Why Europe Isn’t Working and How the EU Can Be Remade

Roger Bootle
The European Union was a brilliant stroke of political and economic engineering when it came into its current form, averting major wars and reducing social tensions among member states. But as Europe moves into the second decade of the twenty-first century, problems are multiplying—problems that arose due to the EU’s very existence. In The Trouble with Europe, Roger Bootle, winner of the 2012 Wolfson Economics Prize, tackles the uncomfortable truth that the European Union might be going down—and could take the global economy with it. Bootle expertly outlines the factors that gave birth to the European union of the twentieth century, from the collective Euro-spirit that initiated a solution to the region’s various problems and the subsequent unforeseen consequences of the compromises nations made in order to create a sustainable organization. Bootle examines how the euro has hindered independent actions of member nations, both economically and politically, before envisaging how a post-EU Europe might come about and how it would affect the United Kingdom, along with other member states and the world at large. Is a full dissolution the only answer or could the United Kingdom’s withdrawal be a viable course of action? With EU elections looming in May 2014, The Trouble with Europe is a compelling read for anyone interested in the economic, political, and social future of the United Kingdom and all of Europe. Roger Bootle is an economist and a weekly columnist for the Daily Telegraph. He is currently the managing director of Capital Economics, an independent macroeconomic research consultancy. Bootle is the author of several books, including The Trouble with Markets and Money for Nothing.

Nicholas Brealey Publishing The Kama Sutra Diaries
Intimate Journeys through Modern India

Sally Howard

“Absolutely riveting. I couldn’t put it down. Everything you wanted to know about sex . . . in India, but never dared ask.”—Mark Shand, author of Travels on my Elephant and winner of the Travel Writer of the Year award Sally Howard, a self-confessed child of the western sexual revolution, sets out on a “sexploration” through modern India. With experiences collected over fifteen years of crisscrossing the enormous country, from the heat of anti-rape protest on the streets of New Delhi to the cool hills of Shimla, playground of the Raj; from a Gujurati retirement home for gay men and eunuchs to a busy sex clinic in Chennai, Howard lifts the bed sheets on India’s sexual revolution. And it’s a revolution that’s full of fascinating surprises and contrasts; for India—the land that gave us the most famous—or infamous—guide to sexual pleasure, the Kama Sutra, is also the land where couples fear to hold hands in public and where women remain cloistered in purdah. With compelling contradictions and characters, The Kama Sutra Diaries paints a vibrant portrait of modern-day love, sex, and sexuality in an India caught between a sensual past and evolving present.

Nicholas Brealey Publishing Slow Train to Switzerland
One tour, two trips, 150 years—and a world of change apart

Diccon Bewes

It was the tour that changed the way we travel. In the summer of 1863 seven people left London on a train that would take them on a thrilling adventure across the Alps. They were the Junior United Alpine Club and members of Thomas Cook’s first Conducted Tour of Switzerland. For them it was an exciting novelty; it turned out to be the birth of mass tourism, and it started with the Swiss. Best-selling author of Swiss Watching Diccon Bewes acquires a copy of Alpine member Jemima Morell’s journal and travels from London to Lucerne—and back in time. He brings only the journal and the club’s nineteenth-century guidebook to retrace their steps one by one, traveling by train whenever possible. Bewes follows the 1863 expedition, experiencing firsthand through Jemima’s journal the original British “holiday” that shaped the future of two disparate nations, one a global monarchy and the other a recovering, struggling republic. Alongside vintage illustrations, Bewes creates a fascinating comparison of how people across the globe explore and vacation today. This is also the story of how a nostalgic tour surprised an expat author, revealing a Switzerland very different from the present—and an unexpected personal connection with the diarist in a startling twist. A perfect read for anyone who seeks an expert blend of context and consequence to their travel writing. Diccon Bewes became a travel writer via the scenic route of bookselling. After ten years at Lonely Planet and Holiday magazine, he decamped to Switzerland, where he has until recently managed the Stauffacher English Bookshop in Bern. Following the success of Swiss Watching, a Financial Times Book of the Year and international bestseller, he is now a full-time writer.
A charming history of leisure travel in nineteenth-century Europe, and how one trip changed two countries forever.

An international bestseller, Watching the English is both an incisive and hilarious look at the English and their society. Kate Fox is co-director of the Social Issues Research Centre in Oxford. Her work involves monitoring and assessing global sociocultural trends, and has included research, publications, and broadcasts on many aspects of human behavior.

Nicolo Whimsey Press The Merchant of Venice
The 30-Minute Shakespeare

Edited by Nick Newlin
“A master at engaging students in the process of performing a Shakespeare scene.”—Janet Field-Pickering, head of education, Folger Shakespeare Library The Merchant of Venice: The 30-Minute Shakespeare features eight scenes from this gripping classic: Shylock loans Antonio money, with the forfeit being a pound of Antonio’s flesh. Comedic mayhem ensues as two foreign princes attempt to win Portia’s hand. The climax is the courtroom scene where Portia, disguised as a lawyer, subjects Shylock to his harsh penalty. The drama concludes with reconciliations that land us firmly back in comic territory. The edition includes a preface by Nick Newlin, containing helpful advice on presenting Shakespeare in a high school setting with novice actors, as well as an appendix with play-specific suggestions and recommendations for further resources.

The Taming of the Shrew
The 30-Minute Shakespeare

Edited by Nick Newlin
“A truly fun, emotional, and sometimes magical first experience . . . guided by a sagacious, knowledgeable, and intuitive educator.”—Library Journal The Taming of the Shrew: The 30-Minute Shakespeare offers eight scenes from this broad comedy. Opening with Petruchio and Kate’s bawdy war of words, the drama continues with Bianca’s courtship by Lucentio and Hortensio, disguised as pedants. The adaptation climaxes with the outlandish marriage scene, and Petruchio’s relentless “taming” of Kate. The play ends with Kate’s famous speech in praise of women’s submission to their husbands, at once hilarious and provocative. The edition includes a preface by Nick Newlin, containing helpful advice on presenting Shakespeare in a high school setting with novice actors, as well as an appendix with play-specific suggestions and recommendations for further resources.

Edited by Alex Spiro and Sam Arthur

“A fantastic compendium of contemporary graphic art, bringing together a wonderful collection of comic creators and illustrators.”—The Fox Is Black As we hurtle along at breakneck speed accompanied by the great cacophony of modern life, we rarely experience a moment of silence.

Nobrow 9 explores silence with sixteen of the best comic creators and over thirty star illustrators in this unique, international showcase of contemporary illustration and comics art. • Nobrow Magazine is a leading arts publication that aims to create a platform for artists to pool their creativity under a single, unifying theme. • It has extremely high production values and is printed in a unique spot color palette using vegetable inks on FSC approved paper. • Nobrow magazines are highly collectible. Each issue has a limited print run of five-thousand copies. Issues 1-5 are sold out and are traded for many times the cover price. Strong appeal to both comic book and illustration communities.

Nobrow Press Moonhead and the Music Machine
Andrew Rae

Life’s a peach when you’ve got a moon for a head and your head’s in space. You can wander out of the Earth’s atmosphere on intergalactic daydreams, drift blissfully across star-speckled skies and fly close to the Sun, like a fireproof Icarus. Snap! Back to reality—having a moon for a head at high school is much more tricky. You get picked on for your “crater-face” and the cool kids kick your head around like a soccer ball! But when the school talent contest is announced, Joey spots an opportunity to impress his classmates and so begins Joey Moonhead’s stellar mission to create a music machine that is out of this world! An imaginative and visually poetic take on the stock American high school drama, Moonhead and the Music Machine is a subtle blend between Wayne’s World and Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Andrew Rae’s graphic novel is life-affirming and powerfully illustrated.

Nobrow Press Forming II
Jesse Moynihan

Praise for Jesse Moynihan’s Forming: “One of the most hilarious and amazing bookshelf features I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.”—It’s Nice That Civilization, but not quite as we know it, has started to take shape. And now, in the continuing chaos, the world and most of its inhabitants have brandished their swords and, in various fashions, have charged onto the battlefield. If Forming hailed the birth of civilization and mapped out the genesis of life, mass, time, and space, then Forming II is the raging war that ensues in the Universe’s years of adolescence. Epic confrontations between gods and mutants, philosophical reflections, hilarious dialogue, and powerful artwork make for an impressive sequel of galactic proportions. Forming II is as funny, sophisticated, and mind-blowingly beautiful as the first part of Jesse Moynihan’s unique trilogy. Jesse Moynihan is a long-time native of West Philadelphia’s music/art scene. His previous comics include the Xeric Award–winning comic The Backwards Folding Mirror and Follow Me. He is currently part of the creative team behind cult Cartoon Network show Adventure Time, where he creates storyboards and assists with character design.
The hotly anticipated sequel that encompasses all: mythology, theology, super-alien gods, hermaphrodites, and the simple task of creating the cosmos. Marketing Plans

Ocean Press America My Brother, My Blood / America, Mi Hermano, Mi Sangre
A Latin American Song of Suffering and Resistance Second Edition

Pablo Neruda and Oswaldo Guayasamín
“Guayasamín is one of the last crusaders of imaginismo. He is a creator of humanity in its broadest sense, of the living and historical imagination. His universe is sustaining although it threatens us like a cosmic disaster. Think before approaching his painting because it will not be easy to withdraw.”—Pablo Neruda “To paint is to pray. To paint is to scream.”—Oswaldo Guayasamín In this breathtakingly beautiful book, excerpts from Pablo Neruda’s Canto General are illustrated by Oswaldo Guayasamín’s powerful work, bringing to life the battles, defeats, victories, and heroes of Latin America’s history of resistance. After their paths first crossed in Mexico, the Chilean poet and indigenous Ecuadoran painter developed a lifelong friendship based on mutual admiration, profound affection, and political solidarity. With Spanish and English text throughout, this book by two of Latin America’s most beloved artists is a captivating, reasonably priced book for the holidays. Pablo Neruda is one of Latin America’s best-loved poets, his most famous work being Canto General. Born in Chile, and widely respected for his outspoken political views, he died days after the coup against the popularly elected Allende government in September 1973. Oswaldo Guayasamín is generally considered Diego Rivera’s successor as Latin America’s most prominent painter. Deemed an expressionist, with evident indigenous roots, the humanist spirit of Guayasamín’s work reflects the pain and misery endured by much of humanity during the last century, but at the same time conveys a sense of human dignity and great tenderness. He died in 1999.
Pablo Neruda’s epic poem Canto General is complemented by Oswaldo Guayasamín’s arresting paintings, creating a visionary song to Latin America.

Process Pacific Ocean Park
The Rise and Fall of L.A.’s Space Age Nautical Pleasure Pier

Christopher Merritt and Domenic Priore

Pacific Ocean Park—or as it was commonly known in Los Angeles from the ’50s through the ’70s, P.O.P.—was extraordinary in both its glamorous rise and spectacular fall. As a family-oriented attraction in the ’50s with modernist-styled rides designed by Hollywood’s best, P.O.P.’s attendance surpassed that of Disneyland. Christopher Merritt and Domenic Priore’s spectacular history includes hundreds of images, most of them unseen elsewhere, including original ride designs and illustrations, including Tiki-rich, space age, and nautical rides. P.O.P. was often widely seen in movies and television shows throughout the ’60s. Its Cheetah auditorium hosted important early rock shows, including those by Ritchie Valens, The Doors, and Pink Floyd. P.O.P. was located at the dividing line between Santa Monica and Venice, the only spot during Prohibition-era Los Angeles were residents were allowed to dance and consort in a carnival-like atmosphere. The book also backgrounds the infamous “Dogtown” of the 70’s in which surfers took advantage of big waves that rolled through P.O.P.’s rotting piers near homeless junkies. Buyers will be able to download audio files heard from all P.O.P.’s attractions. Christopher Merritt currently designs amusement parks in Asia and also cowrote Knott’s Preserved. Domenic Priore also co-wrote the celebrated volumes Riot on Sunset Strip, Pop Surf Culture, and Smile: The Story of Brian Wilson’s Lost Masterpiece.

Profile Books Nijinsky
Lucy Moore

“Superb biography. . . . Moore recounts [Nijinsky’s story] with scholarship, grace, and imagination.”—The Sunday Times “She never loses sight of why Nijinsky’s art was so great. The result is a captivating biography.”—The Financial Times Arguably the greatest dancer of the twentieth century, Vaslav Nijinsky (1889–1950) transformed the world of ballet. On stage he blazed a trail as the first male star of the modern era, with critics and audiences hailing him the God of the Dance. In his brief career as choreographer, his astonishing modernist compositions—most controversially, Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring)—had the same dramatic impact on ballet as the work of Pablo Picasso had on painting. His turbulent relationship with the powerful impresario Sergei Diaghilev not only propelled him to stardom but made him into a gay icon before such a thing had been dreamt of. But when Nijinsky escaped Diaghilev’s control by eloping with a starstruck young follower of the Ballets Russes, their personal and professional association was shattered. Unable to work, Nijinsky’s world fell apart. In the first full-length biography of Nijinsky for over thirty years, drawing on his diaries for the first time, acclaimed historian Lucy Moore introduces this troubled genius and the world around him to a new generation, providing extraordinary insights into the creative process and personal relationships of one of the great cultural figures of the twentieth century. Lucy Moore is a writer and broadcaster whose books include the bestselling Maharanis. She lives in London, England.
The first major biography for thirty years tells the tragic story of ballet’s great revolutionary, Vaslav Nijinsky.

Profile Books The Unpublished David Ogilvy
David Ogilvy
Foreword by Miles Young

“Ogilvy is the creative force of modern advertising.”—The New York Times First collected by his devoted family and colleagues as a seventy-fifth birthday present, The Unpublished David Ogilvy collects a career’s worth of public and private communications—memos, letters, speeches, notes, and interviews—from the “Father of Advertising” and founder of Ogilvy & Mather. Still fizzing with energy and freshness more than twenty-five years after it was first published, its success outside the private circle of friends and colleagues it was created for was, in the words of one of its editors, “because so often he spoke out on important matters long before the crowd caught up to him; because all of what he says, he says so well; because so little of what he says in the book had ever before appeared in print.” This is a business book unlike any other: a straightforward and incisive look at subjects such as salesmanship, management, and creativity, presented in Ogilvy’s trademark crisp prose. Whether carefully prepared for a lecture or as a private joke to a friend, his writing always underlines the importance of the rule “it pays an agency to be imaginative and unorthodox.” David Ogilvy, CBE, (1911–1999) is often described as the “father of advertising.” He founded New York agency Ogilvy & Mather in 1948, and his iconic campaigns include legendary adverts for Dove, Hathaway, Rolls Royce, and Guinness. Ogilvy’s best-selling book Confessions of an Advertising Man is still one of the most popular books on advertising.

Pushkin Press Red Love
The Story of an East German Family

Maxim Leo

Winner of the European Book Prize. “A wry and unheroic witness to the distorting impact . . . that ideology has upon the daily life of the individual . . . [Leo] describes these ‘ordinary lives’ . . . with great clarity, humor, and truthfulness.”—Julian Barnes “Tender, acute, and utterly absorbing.”—Anna Funder, author of Stasiland The gripping story, lovingly told, of what held East Germany together—and what, in the end, destroyed it. Growing up in East Berlin, Maxim Leo knew not to ask questions. All he knew was that his rebellious parents, Wolf and Anne, with their dyed hair, leather jackets, and insistence he call them by their first names, were a bit embarrassing. That there were some places you couldn’t play; certain things you didn’t say. Now, married with two children and the Wall a distant memory, Maxim decides to find the answers to the questions he couldn’t ask. Why did his parents, once passionately in love, grow apart? Why did his father become so angry, and his mother end her career in journalism? And why did his grandfather Gerhard, the Socialist war hero, turn into a stranger? The story he unearths is, like his country’s past, one of hopes, lies, cruelties, betrayals, but also love. In Red Love he captures, with warmth and unflinching honesty, why so many dreamed the German Democratic Republic would be a new world and why, in the end, it fell apart.
“A wry and unheroic witness.”—Julian Barnes

Saqi Books The Sultan’s Sex Potions
Nasir al-Din al-Tusi
Edited and translated by Daniel L. Newman

Arabic erotic literature has a long and rich history, which goes back as far as the ninth century. Far from being the pursuit of prurient pornographers, eroticism and sexuality received considerable attention from scholars. Written by Nasir al-Din al-Tusi (1201–1274), one of the leading scientists of the age, The Sultan’s Sex Potions is part of a group of works devoted to aphrodisiacs as well as sexual stimulants, sexual practices, and positions. Sober and measured in tone, the work was intended to be a manual that would allow the patient to dispense with the services of a physician. Written at the request of the ruler, its potions, electuaries, syrups, and enemas enjoyed a “royal warrant of appointment” to arouse the lust for coitus and enhance sexual potency. This volume includes a critical edition of three manuscripts (Berlin, Cairo, and Glasgow) and is accompanied by a translation, as well as an introduction to Arabic erotic literature, a biography of the author, and extensive indexes. A Persian polymath and prolific writer, Nasir al-Din al-Tusi (1201–1274) built up a large body of work ranging across a number of disciplines including mathematics, geometry, mineralogy, astronomy, medicine, philosophy, and theology. The Muslim scholar Ibn Khaldun (1332–1406) considered al-Tusi to be the greatest of the later Persian scholars. Daniel L. Newman is head of the Arabic Studies department, professor of Arabic, and course director of the MA in Arabic–English Translation and Interpreting at the University of Durham, England.

Saqi Books Keep Your Eye on the Wall
Palestinian Landscapes

Edited by Olivia Snaije and Mitchell Albert
Foreword by Raja Shehadeh

“Shockingly beautiful and evocative . . . the artists echo the feelings of Palestinians who have to make do with life in a divided, disfigured land.” —Raja Shehadeh In art and literature, walls are frequently used as powerful symbols of division. For the people of Palestine, however, the wall that cuts deeply into their land and society is all too real, snaking through over seven hundred kilometres of the West Bank. It throttles Palestinians, seals off Israelis, and all but guarantees perpetual ignorance, fear, and rage on both sides. Keep Your Eye on the Wall brings together seven award-winning artistphotographers and four essayists, all responding to the Wall in images or words, specially commissioned for this book. The photographers present unique perspectives, whether documenting the journey of laborers across the barrier, the desolation of abandoned checkpoints, or the tattered posters of “martyrs” on a wall in Gaza. Featuring the photographic work of Taysir Batniji, Raed Bawayah, Rula Halawani, Noel Jabbour, Raeda Saadeh, Steve Sabella, and Kai Wiedonhöfer, and the words of Malu Halasa, Yael Lerer, Christine Leuenberger, and Adania Shibli. Olivia Snaije is the books editor for Harper’s Bazaar Art and a reporter for Beirut’s Daily Star. She was formerly executive editor at Alef, a London-based magazine covering Middle Eastern culture, and editor-in-chief of World Media in Paris. Mitchell Albert was the program director of Writers’ Centre Norwich and the former editorial director of PEN International. He is currently associate editor of Steppe, a magazine of Central Asian arts and culture.
Powerful, unique, and beautifully produced—an insightful and thought-provoking critique of the Wall.

Sarabande Books Elegy on Kinderklavier
Arna Bontemps Hemenway

“The stories in Elegy on Kinderklavier travel around the world and to the moon, and along the way they tell you everything they know. Arna Hemenway writes a fiction whose satisfactions are not merely narrative but musical, and it is a pleasure to listen to his stories as they rise into song.”—Kevin Brockmeier The stories in Elegy on Kinderklavier explore the profound loss and intricate effects of war on lives that have been suddenly misaligned. A diplomat navigates a hostile political climate and an arranged marriage in an Israeli settlement on a newly discovered planet; a small town in Kansas shuns the army recruiter who signed up its boys as troops are deployed to Iraq, falling in helicopters and on grenades; a family dissolves around mental illness and a child’s body overtaken by cancer. The moment a soldier steps on an explosive device is painfully reproduced, nanosecond by nanosecond. Arna Bontemps Hemenway’s stories feel pulled out of time and place, and the suffering of his characters seem at once otherworldly and stunningly familiar. Elegy on Kinderklavier is a disquieting exploration of what it is to lose and be lost. Arna Bontemps Hemenway’s fiction has appeared in the Missouri Review, A Public Place, the Seattle Review, and Ecotone. Originally from Kentucky, he holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and has received scholarships from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference and Truman Capote Literary Trust.

Sarabande Books Limber
Angela Pelster

“What a strange and unexpected treasure chest this is, filled with all manner of quirky revelations, all about the mundane sublime and the ineffable extraordinary. Most extraordinary of all, perhaps, though, is the haunting perfection, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph, of the writing itself. Who is this Angela Pelster and where has she been all our lives?” —Lawrence Weschler Angela Pelster’s startling essay collection charts the world’s history through its trees: roots in the ground, rings across wood, and inevitable decay. These sharp and tender essays move from her childhood in rural Canada surrounded by skinny poplar trees in her backyard to a desert in Niger, where the “Loneliest Tree in the World” once grew. A squirrel’s decomposing body below a towering maple prompts a discussion of the science of rot, as well as a metaphor for the ways in which nature programs us to consume ourselves. Beautiful, deeply thoughtful, and wholly original, Limber valiantly asks what it means to sustain life on this planet we’ve inherited. Angela Pelster’s essays have appeared in Granta, the Gettysburg Review, Seneca Review, the Globe and Mail, Relief Magazine, and others. Her children’s novel The Curious Adventures of India Sophia won the Golden Eagle Children’s Choice award in 2006. She has an MFA from the University of Iowa’s nonfiction writing program and lives with her family in Baltimore, Maryland, where she teaches at Towson University.
A startling, lyrical essay collection focused on trees. Limber moves from the author’s childhood in rural Canada to Niger, the Philippines, and Greece.

Cain.”—The Financial Times “A fascinating, tense, and engaging read that draws you into the lives of the characters with consummate ease until you reluctantly turn that final page.” —Crimesquad Praise for The Dead Women of Juárez: “A beautiful, compassionate, gruelling novel, as ferocious to read as it is soulwrenching. . . . This book will haunt you for a long, long time.”—Ken Bruen “[The] book roars into gear as a bluntly forceful hard-boiled thriller that also manages to address, movingly and respectfully, it’s troubling subject matter.” —Publishers Weekly El Paso, Texas. Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. Two cities. Different sides of the border. They share streets. They share families. But most of all they share crime. And one gang rules over it all: Los Aztecas. In Tequila Sunset, three people are confronted by Los Aztecas’s ruthless power: a reluctant gang member, an El Paso police officer, and a Mexican federal agent. As their paths cross with the gang and each other, they all become involved in a complex struggle between law and crime, violence and order, and ultimately, life and death. Sam Hawken was born in Texas and now lives in Maryland. His first book, The Dead Women of Juárez, also set on the US–Mexico border, was shortlisted for the 2011 Crime Writers’ Association New Blood Dagger, a prize for the best debut crime novel of the year.

Serpent’s Tail Sila’s Fortune
Fabrice Humbert

Winner of the 2011 Prix RTL-Lire and the 2010 Prix Jean-Jacques Rousseau. “Sila’s Fortune is a book of our time. It consists of stories that are extraordinary, beautiful, inspiring, sad, or painful and rendered with a felicity of writing that is to be greatly admired.”—Lire “One of the jewels of this year’s literary output, Sila’s Fortune is an amazing immersion into the world of bling and money.”—L’Express Paris, June 1995. At an exclusive restaurant, a waiter—a young immigrant named Sila—is violently attacked by one of the wealthy diners. No one moves. Not the expensively dressed Russian couple, not the two young traders come to celebrate their first jobs on the floor. Not even the wife of the aggressor. All actions have consequences, and the brutality, indifference, or cowardice of those present on that day at the restaurant signals the beginning of their individual undoing. From the fall of the Berlin Wall to the financial crash of 2008, the crossed destinies of the witnesses weave a complex web of human tragedy across the decades. And at the center of it all is Sila. But in a society blinded by its own greed, is his refusal to be made a victim a heroic act of defiance, or a futile last cry no one will hear? Fabrice Humbert teaches literature in a French-German lycée near Paris. His previous novel The Origin of Violence won the first ever French Prix Orange and the Prix Renaudot for best paperback.

Small Beer Press A Summer in the Twenties
Peter Dickinson

“A lovely smooth read.”—The Washington Post “A witty, affectionately nostalgic masterpiece.”—The Columbus Dispatch “As absorbingly readable, as well-written as anything Peter Dickinson has written.”—The Times Literary Supplement Praise for Peter Dickinson’s mysteries: “The works of British Mystery Writer Peter Dickinson are like caviar—an acquired taste that can easily lead to addiction. Dickinson . . . does not make much of the process of detection, nor does he specialize in suspense. Instead, he neatly packs his books with such old-fashioned virtues as mood, character, and research.”—Time “Dickinson (author of engagingly offbeat thrillers and children’s books) does splendidly here with atmosphere, with the eccentric supporting characters, with the occasionally bizarre comic touches.”—Kirkus Reviews In 1926 the British government was worried about revolution. Two million people are about to go on strike and class warfare is about to erupt. Tom Hankey is caught between his love for Judy, a bright young thing, and Kate, a fireball agitator.

Stockholm Text Me on the Floor, Bleeding
Jenny Jägerfeld

Awarded the August Prize for Best Youth Novel. “I really loved this book—the fierce and honest testimony of a blazingly creative personality.”—Elizabeth Wein High school outsider Maja would never hurt herself on purpose as her dad, teachers, and classmates seem to believe. Can’t a person saw off the tip of her thumb without everyone starting to worry? That is, everyone except Maja’s mum, who seems to have disappeared from the face of earth. Crashing a neighbor’s party, Maja meets twenty-year-old Justin Case, a super-verbal car mechanic with pink pants, who makes her forget everything about absent mothers and sawn-off thumbs, at least temporarily. But then Maja hacks into her father’s e-mail account and reads an e-mail that hurts more than all the electric saws in the world. In this funny and clever coming-of-age novel, seventeen-year-old Maja describes each moment with such bare-bones honesty that one can’t help but be drawn into her world. Wise beyond her years yet still surprisingly naïve, her story is entertaining and enlightening, at turns both hilarious and bittersweet. Jenny Jägerfeld is a professional psychologist specializing in young adult psychiatric care in Sweden. She also works as a consultant with young adults on a long-running psychology program on Swedish national radio. Me on the Floor, Bleeding is her first novel to be translated into English and has been awarded the coveted August Prize for Best Youth Novel.
A unique love story with doses of splatter, farce, poetry, and psychological suspense.

M.A.C. Farrant

“Farrant has a lightness of touch, and . . . the formats she chooses are refreshing: at her best, it feels as if she is getting at the heart of something that takes other writers much longer to lead us to.”—Canadian Literature In this stunning collection of mini observations, master of the absurd M.A.C. Farrant interrupts typical, everyday events—drinking tea, going to the doctor— with intensely surreal, laugh-out-loud moments that satisfy our collective desire for escape and renewal from the monotony of modern life. What happens when a whimsical spirit becomes captive to a middle-aged body? What does the “wrap-up dinner for the Love Your Package Workshop” look like? Can one place an ad for a “lost” mind? Can a soggy tomato salad really end a marriage? Childhood and bad parenting, sex and depravity, and love and divorce are all deftly handled in this hot flash of a book that gets straight to the heart of it all—through the rear window. M.A.C. Farrant is the acclaimed author of ten collections of satirical and humorous short fiction, and two works of nonfiction. Her writing has been widely anthologized in North America and dramatized for television and theater.

Talonbooks Canada: A New Tax Haven
How the Country That Shaped Caribbean Tax Havens Is Becoming One Itself

Alain Deneault
Translated by Catherine Browne
Under the guidance of Canadian financiers, the Caribbean islands became jurisdictions of banking and tax leniency in the last half of the twentieth century. Now government policy to increase the international “competitiveness” of Canadian companies encourages multinationals to relocate to Canada as if it were Barbados or Belize. This book examines the implications of this development. Alain Deneault writes about international financial and legal agreements and the ways in which they favor multinational corporations over nation states and human communities. Translator, writer, and researcher Catherine Browne is a member of the Literary Translators’ Association of Canada.

“A daring writer who can be relied on to ignore expectation, and is becoming one of the most interesting, honest and thought-provoking novelists working today.”—The Guardian “Jones’ rejection of isolationism and imaginative embrace of so much that the world has to offer make him a literary figure to watch.”—Los Angeles Times A powerful and unexpected memoir from the author of the best-selling Man Booker Prize–shortlisted Mister Pip.

Text Publishing Company The Young Desire It
Kenneth Mackenzie
Introduction by David Malouf

“A first novel of exceptional interest and originality.”—The Spectator “Unique and very nearly perfect, a hymn to youth, to life, to sexual freedom and moral independence.”—David Malouf, from the introduction Fifteen-year-old Charles Fox is sent away to boarding school, innocent, alone, and afraid. There one of his masters develops an intense attachment to him. But when Charles meets Margaret, a girl staying at a nearby farm for the holidays, he is besotted, and a passionate, unforgettable, romance begins. Published in London in 1937 to wide acclaim, this is a stunning debut novel about coming of age: an intimate account of first love and a rich evocation of rural Western Australia. It won the Australian Literature Society Gold Medal and is now back in print for the first time in almost twenty-five years with a new introduction by David Malouf, one of the finest Australian writers of all time. Kenneth Mackenzie was born in 1913 in South Perth, Western Australia. Unhappy years boarding at Guildford Grammar School were the basis for his highly acclaimed first novel, The Young Desire It. Mackenzie’s subsequent novels were The Chosen (1938), Dead Men Rising (1951)—based partly on his experiences after he was deemed unfit for active service in the war—and The Refuge (1954). His last years were spent alone, in declining health and succumbing to drink, at Kurrajong, New South Wales, near the Blue Mountains. In 1955 he died accidentally while bathing in a creek.
This is a masterful portrayal of a young boy’s awakening to true love in the sensual landscape of Western Australia.

Text Publishing Company Belomor
Nicolas Rothwell

“Masterful and unforgettable.”—Pico Iyer “Melancholy, singular, exhilarating, Belomor reads like a haunted history of the world.”—Delia Falconer “Belomor resists easy categorisation. Its many characters are elusive, some more types than characters, more mouthpieces than fully rounded individuals. But this does not detract from this beautiful and mesmerising book, which engages the intellect as well as the emotions.”—Weekend Australian Elegiac and seductive, Belomor is the frontier where truth and invention meet— where fragments from distant lives intermingle, and cohere. A man seeks out the father figure who shaped his picture of the past. A painter seeks redemption after the disasters of his years in northern Australia. A student of history travels into the depths of religion, the better to escape the demons in his mind. A filmmaker seeks out freedom and open space, and looks into the murk and sediment of herself. Four chapters: four journeys through life, separate, yet interwoven as the narrative unfolds. In this entrancing new book from one of Australia’s most original writers, we meet European dissidents from the age of postwar communism, artists in the outback, snake hunters, opal miners, and desert magic healers. Belomor is a meditation on time and loss: on how the most bitter recollections bring happiness, and the meaning of a secret rests in the thoughts surrounding it. Nicolas Rothwell is the award-winning author of Heaven and Earth, Wings of the Kite-Hawk, Another Country, The Red Highway, and Journeys to the Interior. He lives in Darwin, Northern Territory, and is the Australian newspaper’s roving northern correspondent.
A spellbinding meditation on art and life that travels from Europe to Northern Australia, from WWII to the present.

Paul McNamee
Foreword by John McEnroe
“Paul McNamee is very intense, has loads of nervous energy, can be annoying and brilliant at almost the same time, is extremely competitive, and has an undeniable love and passion for the sport of tennis. Hey, that sounds a lot like me!”—John McEnroe, from the introduction Paul McNamee is a legendary figure in Australian tennis. From his early days as a talented Melbourne teenager, McNamee became a top international player, conquering Wimbledon and the Australian Open with his doubles partner, Peter McNamara. Along the way he shared a court with such luminaries as Rod Laver, Martina Navratilova, John McEnroe, and Björn Borg. Just as important have been his contributions to the evolution of the sport: as the driving force behind the Hopman Cup and the reinvention of the Australian Open (he was its CEO until 2006), and as a coach. McNamee continues to be a strong influence on the international game: he coached the winner of the 2013 Wimbledon ladies’ doubles, Taiwanese champion player Hsieh Su-wei. Publishing to coincide with the US Open in 2014, Game Changer is a book for everyone who enjoys the game and anyone who has wondered about the locker-room antics and the fun and drama behind the management of major tournaments. This is Paul McNamee’s story—candid, compelling, and insightful. The story of an ever-changing life in tennis.
The funny, compelling, and insightful life story of an Australian tennis legend—who played with the greats and revitalized the game.

Introduction by Andy Griffiths
“Murnane draws out a great deal of comedy from the distance between what his hero does and what he dreams.”—The Guardian Adrian Sherd is a teenager in Melbourne of the 1950s—the last years before television and the family car changed suburbia forever. Earnest and isolated, tormented by his hormones and his religious devotion, Adrian dreams of elaborate orgies with American film stars, and of marrying his sweetheart and fathering eleven children by her. He even dreams a history of the world as a chronicle of sexual frustration. A Lifetime on Clouds is funny, honest, and sweetly told: a less ribald, Catholic Australian Portnoy’s Complaint.

Tracy Letts
“A tremendous achievement in American playwriting: a tragicomic populist portrait of a tough land and a tougher people.”—Time Out New York “Tracy Letts’ August: Osage County is what O’Neill would be writing in 2007. Letts has recaptured the nobility of American drama’s mid-century heyday while still creating something entirely original.”—New York magazine “I don’t care if August: Osage County is three and a half hours long. I wanted more.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer “This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the table with the great American family plays.”—Time One of the most bracing and critically acclaimed plays in recent Broadway history, August: Osage County is a portrait of the dysfunctional American family at its finest—and absolute worst. In December 2013, the play became a motion picture from The Weinstein Company, starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Sam Shepard, Juliette Lewis, and Ewan McGregor. Tracy Letts was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play for August: Osage County, which premiered at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 2007 before playing Broadway, London’s National Theatre, and a forty-week US tour. Other plays include Pulitzer Prize finalist Man from Nebraska; Killer Joe, which was adapted into a critically acclaimed film and will receive its Broadway premiere in 2014; and Bug, which has played in New York, Chicago, and London and was adapted into a film. Letts is an ensemble member of Steppenwolf Theatre Company and garnered a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
The Pulitzer Prize–winning play becomes a major motion picture.

Sarah Ruhl

“Wickedly clever . . . Ruhl’s unique, breezily elegant dialogue is fully present, as is her pleasingly loopy logic.”—Variety “In the smart, rollicking Stage Kiss . . . passion and fidelity engage in a kind of elegant pas de deux. . . . The play manages to be both wholly original and instantly recognizable . . . with its combination of hilarity and trenchancy.” —The New Yorker Award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl brings her unique mix of lyricism, sparkling humor, and fierce intelligence to her new romantic comedy, Stage Kiss. When estranged lovers He and She are thrown together as romantic leads in a long-forgotten 1930s melodrama, the line between off-stage and on-stage begins to blur. A “knockabout farce that channels Noël Coward and Michael Frayn” (Chicago Tribune), Stage Kiss is a thoughtful and clever examination of the difference between youthful lust and respectful love. Ruhl, one of America’s most frequently produced playwrights, proves that a kiss is not just a kiss in this whirlwind romantic comedy, which will receive its New York premiere at Playwrights Horizons in winter 2014. Sarah Ruhl’s other plays include the Pulitzer Prize finalists In the Next Room (or the vibrator play) and The Clean House, as well as Passion Play, Dead Man’s Cell Phone, Demeter in the City, Eurydice, Melancholy Play, and Late: a cowboy song. She is the recipient of a Whiting Writers’ Award, a PEN/Laura Pels Award, and a MacArthur Fellowship. Her plays have premiered on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and have been produced in many theaters around the world.

“In the work of John Patrick Shanley, the truth is as charming as it is painful, reality as touched with magic as it is factual, and existence as absolute as it is illusory.”—BOMB magazine For Anthony and Rosemary, introverted misfits straddling forty, love seems unlikely. In this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny as hell, and ultimately, deeply moving. Set in the Irish countryside, Outside Mullingar has been dubbed the “Irish Moonstruck” and will premiere on Broadway in 2014, starring Debra Messing and Brian F. O’Byrne and helmed by Doug Hughes, the Tony Award– winning director of Doubt. John Patrick Shanley is from the Bronx. His plays include Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Savage in Limbo, and Dirty Story. His trilogy Church and State began with Doubt, followed by Defiance and Storefront Church. For his play Doubt, the playwright received both the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize.

On The Night Alive: “A beautiful new play. . . . There’s not another dramatist living who could pull off [what McPherson] exercises so exquisitely here. . . . Kindles a glow, both warming and chilling, you rarely experience at the theater.” —The New York Times On The Birds: “Deliciously chilling . . . spring-loaded with tension.”—Irish Independent On The Veil: “Bold and intriguing . . . McPherson keeps you guessing to the last.” —Financial Times Tommy’s not a bad man, he’s just getting by—renting a decrepit room in his Uncle Maurice’s house and hopping from one get-rich-quick scheme to the other. Then one day he comes to the aid of the also-struggling Aimee, and together, they just might make something—extraordinary—of their lives. With inimitable warmth, style, and craft, The Night Alive deftly mines the humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations. Also included in the volume is The Birds, a suspenseful, atmospheric adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s enthralling short story, and The Veil, set around a haunted house hemmed in by a restive, starving populace, which weaves Ireland’s troubled colonial past into a riveting tale about the pursuit of love, the transcendental, and the circular nature of time.

“Will Eno is one of the finest younger playwrights I have come across in a number of years. His work is inventive, disciplined, and, at the same time, wild and evocative. His ear is splendid and his mind is agile.”—Edward Albee “Mr. Eno has studied the play closely, and the marvel of his new version is how closely it tracks the original while also being, at every moment and unmistakably, a Will Eno play. . . . Mr. Eno has brought down from its dizzying heights a surprisingly crowd-pleasing (if still strange) work.”—The New York Times Watch closely as Peter Gnit, a funny-enough but so-so specimen of humanity, makes a lifetime of bad decisions on the search for his True Self, which is disintegrating while he searches. A rollicking, cautionary tale about, among other things, how the opposite of love is laziness, Gnit is a faithful, unfaithful, and willfully American misreading of Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt. Will Eno’s plays include Title and Deed and The Realistic Joneses (both listed in the New York Times’s Best Plays of 2012), Middletown (Horton Foote Prize for Promising New American Play), Thom Pain (based on nothing) (Pulitzer Prize finalist), and The Flu Season (Oppenheimer Award). His other awards include the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theatre Award and the firstever Marian Seldes/Garson Kanin Fellowship by the Theater Hall of Fame. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Theatre Communications Group Intimacy and Other Plays
Thomas Bradshaw

“Bradshaw has proved in play after play that he has a confident vision of the theater that is his own. The politically incorrect plots jump merrily from one outrage to another, never pausing to explain motivation or linger on subtext. His dramas ask: What would happen if every dark urge, lingering resentment and unedited ugly insult that popped into your head came spilling out of your mouth? . . . No playwright applies as ruthlessly Hitchcock’s definition of drama as ‘life with the boring parts taken out.’”—The New York Times Interracial couple Jerry and Pat borrow tools from their recently widowed, white evangelical neighbor James, and they even share the same Latino contractor, the mysterious Fred. Everything’s suburban bliss until James, after discovering his neighbors’ daughter Janet is a budding porn star, shuns the family. But what James doesn’t know is that his aspiring-filmmaker son Matthew has other ideas. . . . An outrageous and revealing comedy about race, sex, and familiarity, Intimacy is the newest work by playwright Thomas Bradshaw and will premiere Off-Broadway with The New Group in winter 2014. This collection from the fiercely provocative and funny playwright also includes Blues for Smoke and Strom Thurman Is Not a Racist. Thomas Bradshaw’s other plays include The Bereaved, declared a New York Times Critic’s Pick and one of the Best Plays of 2009 by Time Out New York; Dawn and Southern Promises, both listed among the New Yorker’s best performances of stage and screen for 2008; Mary; and Burning. He was hailed as the Best Provocative Playwright of 2007 by the Village Voice.
A new collection of plays by one of Time Out New York’s Ten Playwrights to Watch.

Theatre Communications Group The Assembled Parties
Richard Greenberg

“The Assembled Parties is Greenberg’s most richly emotional work in years, and the most beautifully detailed.”—New York magazine “This tragicomedy shocks us into realizing how hungry we have been for witty and wounded grown-ups who toss off gorgeously written observations without knowing how little we know about what we think we know.”—Newsday Meet the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family in 1980. In an opulent apartment overlooking Central Park, former movie star Julie and her sister-in-law Faye bring their families together for a traditional holiday dinner on a night when things don’t go as planned. Twenty years later, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs’s seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble. An incisive portrait of a family grasping for stability at the dawn of a new millennium, The Assembled Parities premiered on Broadway in 2013 to rave reviews and a Tony Award nomination for Best Play. Richard Greenberg has written two dozen plays in his thirty-year career, including Take Me Out (Tony Award for Best Play, Drama Desk Award, NY Drama Critics Circle Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Lucille Lortel Award), The Dazzle (Outer Critics Circle Award), Three Days of Rain (L.A. Drama Critics Award, Pulitzer Prize finalist), The American Plan, the book for a musical adaptation of Far From Heaven, and many more. He has received the Oppenheimer Award for a new playwright as well as the first PEN/Laura Pels Award for a playwright in mid-career.

Two Dollar Radio Crystal Eaters
Shane Jones

“A grounded epiphany of the highest order, revealing the stark and majestic grace that is present within the loss each living thing must endure. Page after page, Jones’s exquisitely styled prose drugs the ear like otherworldly music—this pyretic, hallucinatory novel stings with beauty at every turn.” —Alissa Nutting “While so many other books and movies these days seem to be afraid of their own fantasies, Shane Jones goes for the throat.”—Vice, on Daniel Fights a Hurricane Remy is a young girl who lives in a town that believes in crystal count: that you are born with one-hundred crystals inside and throughout your life, through accidents and illness, your count is depleted until you reach zero. As a city encroaches daily on the village, threatening their antiquated life, and the Earth grows warmer, Remy sets out to accomplish something no one else has: to increase her sick mother’s crystal count. An allegory, fable, touching family saga, and poetic sci-fi adventure, Shane Jones underlines his reputation as an inspired and unique visionary. Shane Jones’s (b. 1980) first novel, Light Boxes, was originally published by Publishing Genius Press in a print run of five hundred copies in 2009. The novel was reviewed widely, the film optioned by Spike Jonze, and the book was reprinted by Penguin. Light Boxes has been translated in eight languages and was named an NPR best book of the year. Jones is also the author of the novels Daniel Fights a Hurricane and The Failure Six.
Crystal Eaters is an ambitious family saga, love story, and watershed in the career of this acclaimed fabulist.

Two Dollar Radio Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky
David Connerley Nahm

The boys howled. In their pockets, eye droppers of gin. They skipped to their car with eyes wide open and sped into the night, down gray county roads, grieving over nothing they could name, beating the dashboard with their fists. Near dawn they broke into a cemetery and pissed on the first angel they could find. Leah’s little brother, Jacob, disappeared when the pair were younger, a tragedy that haunts her still. When a grown man arrives at the non-profit Leah directs claiming to be Jacob, she is wrenched back to her childhood, an iridescent tableau of family joy and strife, swimming at the lake, sneaking candy, late-night fears, and the stories told to quell them. Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky is a wrecking-ball of a novel that attempts to give meaning and poetry to everything that comprises small-town life in central Kentucky. Listen: they are the ghost stories that children tell one another, the litter that skirts the gulley, the lines at department stores. Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky reads as though Anne Carson and Maggie Nelson wrote a more focused Antwerp and based it in central Kentucky. A gorgeous, haunting, prismatic jewel of a book. David Connerley Nahm was born and raised in a small town in central Kentucky. Currently, he lives in the mountains of Virginia where he practices law and teaches law and literature at James Madison University. His short stories have appeared in Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, Trunk Stories, Eyeshot, and on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency.
A jaw-droppingly gorgeous, mysterious, and lyric exploration of childhood, personal loss, ghost stories, and small-town life in rural Kentucky.

Two Dollar Radio Frequencies: Volume 4
Essays by Ruth Gila Berger, Charles Hastings, Jr., Nathan Knapp, Erick Lyle, and Nicholas Rombes

From Nathan Knapp’s “Real Life in the Heady Days of Dial-Up”: We judge our adolescent selves because experience has given us the privilege of knowing that the world doesn’t have to end when our first girlfriend or boyfriend breaks up with us. Experience gives us the knowledge that there are much worse fears ahead. But the privilege of experience is still privilege, and the coruscating light that it shines on the miseries of our adolescences is often as false as it is true. From Ruth Gila Berger’s “Now. Here. Crazy. But Still.”: Consider the slinky. Used for divination it’s a pretty accurate predictor of how fucked up interpersonal expectations can play out end over end to the bottom. Consider the slinky a self-fulfilling prophecy. It doesn’t do all that much as a toy. Bling, bling, bling. Down the stairs a couple times and you lose interest. Give it rainbow colors and maybe each moment it looks different. But the slinky falls end over end to its conclusion. Volume 4 of Frequencies picks up where previous issues have left off, with artful essays that challenge the current nonfiction prescription. Charles Hastings, Jr., reports on factory work-a-day life in Alabama, Nathan Knapp reflects on teenage romance in the days of dial-up, and Ruth Gila Berger writes about the evolution of life plans and the shaping a new American family. Plus: Nicholas Rombes tackles the wave of violent nineteenth-century fiction, new work from Erick Lyle, and more!
Coming of age in the heady days of dial-up! Violent nineteenth-century fiction! Family strife! Searching for noble toil!

Uncivilized Books Travelogues
Gabrielle Bell

For an impoverished cartoonist, I do an awful lot of international traveling. Raw, bare-boned, scathingly funny dispatches from the renowned comic diarist Gabrielle Bell, with biting cultural commentary mixed with her signature introspective, self-deprecating humor, and surreal digressions (from car-driving bears, through Zombie Apocalypses, to cute babies, and . . . more bears!) as she visits France, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Colombia, back to Brooklyn, and finally landing in upstate New York. In Travelogues Gabrielle Bell proves she can be . . . funny! Gabrielle Bell was born in England and raised in California. Her work has been selected for the 2007, 2009, and 2010 Best American Comics and the Yale Anthology of Graphic Fiction, and she has contributed to McSweeneys, Bookforum, the Believer, and Vice. The title story of Bell’s book, “Cecil and Jordan in New York,” has been adapted for the film anthology Tokyo! by Michel Gondry. Her latest book, The Voyeurs, was selected as one of the top five graphic novels of 2012 by Publishers Weekly. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Who knew Gabrielle Bell could be so funny!

Uncivilized Books An Iranian Metamorphosis
Mana Neyestani

Can a cartoon cause riots? It seems unbelievable but for Mana Neyestani it’s true. One of his cartoons sparked riots, shuttered the newspaper Neyestani worked for, and landed the cartoonist and his editor in solitary confinement inside of Iran’s notorious prison system. Neyestani’s story, which can only be described as Kafkaesque, is vividly brought to life in An Iranian Metamorphosis. Mana Neyestani (b. 1973 in Tehran) is an Iranian cartoonist and illustrator for economic, intellectual, political, cultural, and professional magazines. He is particularly known for his work for the newspaper Zan and Persian language Radio Zamaneh. He is the recipient of the 2010 Cartoonists Rights Network International Courage Award in editorial cartooning.

A cockroach landed Iranian cartoonist Mana Neyestani in jail and turned his life upside down.

Uncivilized Books It Never Happened Again
Two Stories

Sam Alden

Here are two exquisite stories set at different times in the author’s life. In Ignatz Award–nominated “Hawaii 1997,” few words are spoken, but Sam Alden’s imagery evokes the magic of a nighttime encounter at a Hawaiian resort. In “We Don’t Talk About It And We’re Not Going To Play It,” an older Alden explores the complicated gender dynamics surrounding a kidnapping attempt in New Orleans. Alden is one of the brightest young talents working today. Sam Alden was born in 1988 in Portland, Oregon. In 2013 he was an official guest at the BilBOLbul festival in Bologna, Italy, and his ongoing comic Haunter will be excerpted in the forthcoming Best American Comics 2013 from Houghton-Mifflin. He now lives and works as an illustrator and cartoonist in his hometown of Portland. Sam lives alone with no pets and is the recipient of the Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent.

Wave Books The Pedestrians
Rachel Zucker

“Zucker is a poet of bottom-scraping, blood-chilling existential anxiety, one among many, and a poet of New York City, one among many, and a poet of American Jewish inheritance, one among many, and one of the funniest, too.” —Boston Review Rachel Zucker returns to themes of motherhood, marriage, and the life of an artist in this double collection of poems. Fables, written in prose form, shows the reader different settings (mountains, ocean, Paris) of Zucker’s travels and meditations on place. The Pedestrians brings us back to her native New York and the daily frustrations of a woman torn by obligations.

Wave Books If I Don’t Breathe How Do I Sleep
Joe Wenderoth
“Best-known for his gritty and uproarious prose poetry collection Letters to Wendy’s, Wenderoth began his career with two books of gimlet-eyed, worldweary, hard-hitting poetry. Now he returns to verse, favoring (as before) relatively short poems, often twelve lines or fewer, most of which crackle with a bleakness that’s part gallows humor, part outrage, and part despair.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review of No Real Light “A perverse, sometimes pretty, obscene, and confounding collection of one page meditative missives . . . trimmed with lunatic fringe.”—Rolling Stone, review of Letters to Wendy’s Whether it’s addressing the grotesque in daily scenes or upsetting the norms of professional culture, Joe Wenderoth’s fifth collection resonates with his signature intellect and disturbing humor. He is at once an aesthete and an iconoclast who brings inventive force to American poetry. Early Capitalism they are perfecting the pillow with which you are being suffocated now it sings to you and shows you pictures Joe Wenderoth grew up near Baltimore, Maryland. He is the author of No Real Light, The Holy Spirit of Life: Essays Written for John Ashcroft’s Secret Self, and Letters to Wendy’s. Wesleyan University Press published his first two books of poems: Disfortune and It Is If I Speak. He is a professor of English at the University of California, Davis.

Wave Books Talkativeness
Michael Earl Craig

“Reality may be stranger than fiction, but Michael Earl Craig’s poems make a laudable effort to even the score. Quite possibly the funniest poet writing today, Craig’s unadorned poetry tends toward the deadpan and the offbeat, with an almost David Lynch-like sense of the uncanny.”—The Believer “I like being in the world of Michael Craig’s poems. Anything can happen, and probably will, and it will affect me in small or large ways that I couldn’t have imagined. The precision of their imagery keeps me reeling with delight.” —James Tate Michael Earl Craig furthers his existential, Lynchian leanings with masterfully composed new poems. He has borrowed the everyday and returned it defamiliarized, dark, and droll. Readers are ushered out of their contemporary bustle and into the intimate viewing room that is Craig’s cinematic fourth collection. Wild for the Lord Someone is sitting on a tall stool before me. I have just very carefully cut my best friend’s wife’s bangs. My watch feels like a small corpse on my wrist tonight. Michael Earl Craig is the author of Thin Kimono, Yes, Master, Can You Relax in My House, and the chapbook Jombang Jet. He lives in the Shields Valley, near Livingston, Montana.
Talkativeness is yet another uncanny whistling choir in a reflective and engaging world all Michael Earl Craig’s own.

Zephyr Press Letters from Mississippi
Reports from Civil Rights Volunteers & Poetry of the 1964 Freedom Summer Anniversary Edition

Edited with a preface by Elizabeth Martínez
Introduction by Julian Bond
The original publication of Letters from Mississippi in 1965 was an immediate record of the mostly white volunteers in the Mississippi Summer Voting Project of 1964 (“Freedom Summer”). It went out of print in 1970. The 2002 edition of the book took the original text and placed it in a context of the history of the civil rights movement, of the broader scene in Mississippi during that summer, and of the subsequent lives of the volunteers. That edition has become a staple in studies of the civil rights movement, but it still focuses mostly on the “outsiders” in their Mississippi communities. This fiftieth anniversary edition includes: expanded biographical notes from previous editions, additional biographies of contributors to the original book, expanded notes, and a filmography. The result is a wider resource for scholarship as well as for a general understanding of this critical moment in civil rights history. Elizabeth Martínez has published six books and numerous articles on popular struggles in the Americas including De Colores Means All of Us: Latina Views for a Multi-Colored Century. Julian Bond has served four terms on the NAACP National Board and since 1998 has been board chairman. He was president of the Atlanta NAACP from 1978 until 1989.
