1001 Inventions is a non-religious, non-political global British educational initiative that promotes awareness of a thousand years of scientific and cultural achievements from Muslim civilization from the seventh century onwards and how those contributions helped build the foundations of our modern world. 1001 Inventions is an initiative of the Foundation for Science Technology and Civilisation (FSTC), a not-for-profit organization founded by a group of philanthropic historians, scientists, engineers, and social scientists dedicated to researching and popularizing the history of preRenaissance civilizations, especially the Muslim civilization, that have had an impact upon our scientific, technological, and cultural heritage. 1001 Inventions is now the world’s leading producer of educational material dedicated to the history of science within Muslim culture and civilization. It researches this material, drawing upon a diverse pool of unbiased professionals, scientists, engineers, and historians from the world’s leading universities, museums, and educational centers of learning. Their work has received support from hundreds of academics, educators, diplomats, legislators, and heads of state, as well as various private and government agencies from the United Kingdom and around the world. It has been praised for its positive impact on inter-cultural appreciation, social cohesion, and the promotion of science. 1001 Inventions consists of a global touring exhibition, now touring the United States, and supporting educational products, including the 1001 Inventions book, that accompany the exhibition and highlight the scientific and technological achievements made by the men and women of different faiths and cultures who lived in Muslim civilization.

1001 Inventions 1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World
Edited by Salim T S Al-Hassani
Foreword by Sir Roland Jackson
“This glorious book overflows with the great ideas of the Muslim middle ages. . . . I wish I had had this book fifty years ago.”—Adam Hart-Davis, photographer, writer, and TV science presenter of the BBC series What the Ancients Did for Us What do coffee beans, torpedoes, surgical scalpels, arches, and observatories all have in common? Were Leonardo da Vinci’s flight ideas originals? Who devised the casing for pill capsules, and where did Fibonacci learn to flex his mathematical fingers? The answers to these questions and more can be found in this book. 1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World presents an excellent overview of Muslim heritage written to appeal to the everyday reader and to amaze and redefine many people’s current assumptions of medieval times and of their history and roots. This is an essential introduction to the great epoch of Muslim civilization. Readers now have access to one thousand years of missing history, covering medicine, technology, economics, civilization, the environment, and much more. From Spain to China, scholars of different genders, cultures, and various faiths worked together to build upon the knowledge of ancient civilization. Written by a team of internationally renowned experts, the contributions were selected to give the reader reassurance and confidence that the facts presented in the book are from the most reliable and unbiased academic sources. Salim T S Al-Hassani is professor emeritus of mechanical engineering and professorial fellow at the School of Languages, Linguistics, and Cultures at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom. Sir Roland Jackson is the chief executive of the British Association for the Advancement of Science.
This book is about a Golden Age of civilization from 600 to 1600, often regarded as the “Dark Ages.”

AK Press Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?
Flaming Challenges to Masculinity, Objectification, and the Desire to Conform

Edited with an introduction by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore
Gay culture has become a nightmare of consumerism, whether it’s an endless quest for Absolut vodka, Diesel jeans, rainbow Hummers, pec implants, or Pottery Barn. Whatever happened to sexual flamboyance and gender liberation, an end to marriage, the military, and the nuclear family? As backrooms are shut down to make way for wedding vows, and gay sexual culture morphs into “straight-acting dudes hangin’ out,” what are the possibilities for a defiant faggotry that challenges the assimilationist norms of a corporate-cozy lifestyle? Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots? challenges not just the violence of straight homophobia but the hypocrisy of mainstream gay norms that say the only way to stay safe is to act straight: get married, join the military, adopt kids! Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore reinvokes the anger, flamboyance, and subversion once thriving in gay subcultures in order to create something dangerous and lovely: an exploration of the perils of assimilation; a call for accountability; a vision for change. A sassy and splintering emergency intervention! Called “startlingly bold and provocative” by Howard Zinn, and described as “a cross between Tinkerbell and a honky Malcolm X with a queer agenda” by The Austin Chronicle, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore is undoubtedly one of America’s most outspoken queer critics. She is the author of two novels, including, most recently, So Many Ways to Sleep Badly, and is the editor of four nonfiction anthologies, including Nobody Passes: Rejecting the Rules of Gender and Conformity and That’s Revolting! Queer Strategies for Resisting Assimilation.
America’s most outrageous queer theorist offers up a juicy alternative to gay assimilationist culture!

AK Press Zapatista Spring
Anatomy of a Rebel Water Project & the Lessons of International Solidarity

Ramor Ryan
Eight volunteers converge to help campesinos build a water system in Chiapas—a strategy to bolster the Zapatista insurgency by helping locals to assert their autonomy. Outsiders question the movement they’ve come so far to support— and each other—when forced into a world so unlike the poetic communiqués of Subcomandante Marcos—a world of endemic rural poverty, parochialism, and shifting loyalties to the movement. The quiet dignity of the local compañeros and echoes of B. Traven, Joseph Conrad, and Albert Camus round out this epic yarn.

The Accumulation of Freedom
Writings on Anarchist Economics

Edited by Deric Shannon; Anthony J. Nocella, II; and John Asimakopoulos
The only crisis of capitalism is capitalism itself. Let’s toss credit default swaps, bailouts, environmental externalities and, while we’re at it, private ownership of production in the dustbin of history. The Accumulation of Freedom brings together economists, historians, theorists, and activists for a first-of-its-kind study of anarchist economics. The editors aren’t trying to subvert the notion of economics—they accept the standard definition, but reject the notion that capitalism or central planning are acceptable ways to organize economic life. Contributors include Robin Hahnel, Iain McKay, Marie Trigona, Chris Spannos, Ernesto Aguilar, Uri Gordon, and more.

AK Press A Colossal Wreck
American Diaries, from the Time of Clinton to Obama

Alexander Cockburn

In these stunning new diaries, political journalist Alexander Cockburn paints the vast and tragic-comic canvas of America’s descent to what Percy Shelley in his poem “Ozymandias” invoked as “that colossal wreck” of empire. This is history both public and private, personal and often very funny. “Alexander Cockburn has always been exceptional,” wrote the late Anthony Howard. “He possesses a genuinely enquiring mind combined with a real love of words.” For the hundreds of thousands of fans who have come to Cockburn’s work though The Nation and CounterPunch, this chronicle will be a marvelous treasure. For those who have not yet discovered him, this is a marvelous portal. Cockburn’s two previous journal collections chronicling the eighties and early nineties are now regarded as classics. Of Corruptions of Empire, David Rieff wrote in The Times Literary Supplement, “probably the most gifted polemicist writing in English today.” The Golden Age is in Us took us from the sunset of the Reagan era to early Clinton time. The New York Times hailed it as the work of “a Warrior Freethinker, armed with courage and gifted prose to cut down the hypocrisies of tyrants.” The Times Literary Supplement called it “a patchwork Paradise Lost.” The Village Voice hailed it as “a literary gem.” Alexander Cockburn is a syndicated national columnist whose work appears regularly in The Nation, New York Free Press, and Los Angeles Times, among others. He co-edits the online news journal CounterPunch and has authored and edited numerous books, including the best-selling Whiteout.
The Nation’s controversial political columnist reflects on American empire and what it means for the future. The ’90s and early ’00s as only Alexander Cockburn could tell it.

AK Press Decolonizing Anarchism
An Antiauthoritarian History of India’s Liberation Struggle

Maia Ramnath
Decolonizing Anarchism looks at the history of South Asian struggles against colonialism and neocolonialism, highlighting lesser-known dissidents as well as iconic figures. This approach reveals an alternate narrative of decolonization, in which achieving a nation-state is not the objective. Maia Ramnath also studies the anarchist vision of alternate society, which closely echoes the concept of total decolonization on the political, economic, social, cultural, and psychological planes. This facilitates not only a reinterpretation of the history of anticolonialism, but insight into the meaning of anarchism itself.

Eyes to the South
French Anarchists & Algeria

David Porter
Eyes to the South studies the currents of the Algerian revolution alongside the development of French anarchist thought from the 1950s to the present. The book presents a fluid mosaic of actions, writings, and theoretical positions as it follows the shifting contexts of Algerian politics and society and the evolving consciousness and organizing of French anarchists in all their diversity. The result is an engaging and fresh approach to both transnational politics and anarchist ideas.

The Right to Be Lazy
Essays by Paul Lafargue

Edited with an introduction by Bernard Marszalek Contributions by Fred Thompson and Kari Lydersen
At once a masterpiece of critical theory and rip-roaring radical humor, this is one of the most spirited attacks on the notion of the “work ethic” ever to be published. Featuring a revised edition of the original English translation by Charles Hope Kerr, this collection also includes four of Paul Lafargue’s lesser-known critiques (including the “Catechism for Investors”), as well as a biographical sketch by longtime Wobbly organizer Fred Thompson and a new introduction. Released in collaboration with Kerr Company to celebrate their 125th anniversary year. Paul Lafargue (1842–1911) was a Cuban-born socialist revolutionary.

This is the first English translation of Frank Mintz’s seminal study of the economic experiments put into place during the Spanish Revolution to both sustain civil society during the war and, more importantly, act as the material basis for a new society. These plans weren’t developed by professional economists but grew out of a political movement that put working people at the fore and believed that the collectivized workplace would be the cornerstone of economic life. Includes a prologue by Chris Ealham, author of Anarchism and the City. A retired professor of Spanish, Frank Mintz lives in Paris, France, and is active with the CNT labor union.

Akashic Books Boundaries
Elizabeth Nunez
“Elizabeth Nunez is one of the finest and most necessary voices in contemporary American and Caribbean fiction.”—Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin “Elizabeth Nunez has written a book so searing, so astute, so immediate to our times, it resurrects; it disrupts inevitably; it startles complacency; and over and over again, it invites healing to flourish.”—Patricia Powell, author of The Fullness of Everything In an age of reality TV, a husband and wife cling to Victorian notions of privacy, though doing so threatens the life of the wife. Their daughter Anna yearns for her mother’s unguarded affection, and eventually learns there is value in restraint. But Anna, a Caribbean American immigrant, finds that lesson harder to accept when, eager to assimilate in her new country, she discovers that a gap yawns between her and American-born citizens. The head of a specialized imprint at a major publishing house, Anna is soon challenged for her position by an ambitious upstart who accuses her of not really understanding American culture, particularly African American culture. Her job at stake, Anna turns for advice to her boyfriend Paul, a Caribbean American himself, who attempts to convince her that immigrants must accept limitations on their freedom in America. Told in spare and transcendent prose, Boundaries is a riveting immigrant story, a fascinating look into the world of contemporary book publishing, a beautiful extension of the exploration of family dynamics that began in Nunez’s previous novel Anna In-Between, and a heartwarming love story. Elizabeth Nunez is the award-winning author of seven novels. Her most recent, Anna In-Between, was a New York Times Editors’ Choice and was selected for the 2010 PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Literary Award. She is a distinguished professor at Hunter College, CUNY, where she teaches creative writing and fiction.

Akashic Books The Warmest December
Bernice L. McFadden
Foreword by James Frey
“Riveting. . . . So nicely avoids the sentimentality that swirls around the subject matter. I am as impressed by its structural strength as by the searing and expertly imagined scenes.”—Toni Morrison, author of Beloved “This is a story that cuts across all race and social strata in its need to be told.” —The Dallas Morning News The Warmest December is the incredibly moving story of one Brooklyn family and the alcoholism that determined years of their lives. Narrated by Kenzie Lowe, a young woman reminiscent of Jamaica Kincaid’s Annie John, as she visits her dying father and finds that choices she once thought beyond her control are very much hers to make. Bernice L. McFadden is the author of seven critically acclaimed novels.

The Mercury Fountain
Eliza Factor
Set in a remote stretch of desert near the border of west Texas and Mexico at the turn of the twentieth century, this story follows the pursuits of Owen Scraperton as he struggles to establish Pristina, a utopian community based on mercury mining that aims to resolve the great questions of labor and race. As age, love, and experience cause Owen to modify his original vision, his fiercely idealistic daughter Victoria remains true to Pristina’s founding principles— setting them up for a major conflict that captures the imagination of the entire town. The Mercury Fountain combines realistic modern writing with elements from American and Greco-Roman mythology, taking its cue from Mercury, the most slippery and mischievous of gods, who rules over science, commerce, eloquence, and thievery.

Akashic Books Gathering of Waters
Bernice L. McFadden

Gathering of Waters is a deeply engrossing tale narrated by the town of Money, Mississippi—a site both significant and infamous in our collective story as a nation. Money is personified in this haunting story, which chronicles its troubled history following the arrival of the Hilson and Bryant families. Tass Hilson and Emmett Till were young and in love when Emmett was brutally murdered in 1955. Anxious to escape the town, Tass marries Maximillian May and relocates to Detroit. Forty years later, after the death of her husband, Tass returns to Money and fantasy takes flesh when Emmett Till’s spirit is finally released from the dank, dark waters of the Tallahatchie River. The two lovers are reunited, bringing the story to an enchanting and profound conclusion. Gathering of Waters mines the truth about Money, Mississippi, as well as the Bryant and Hilson families, and threads their history over decades. The barebones realism—both disturbing and riveting—combined with a magical realm in which ghosts have the final say, is reminiscent of Toni Morrison’s Beloved. Bernice L. McFadden is the author of seven critically acclaimed novels including the classic Sugar and Glorious, which was featured in O, The Oprah Magazine; selected as the debut title for the One Book, One Harlem program; and was a finalist for the NAACP Image Award. She is a two-time Hurston/Wright Legacy Award finalist, as well as the recipient of two fiction honor awards from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association. Her sophomore novel The Warmest December was praised by Nobel Prize–winning author Toni Morrison as “searing and expertly imagined.” McFadden lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Following her hit novel Glorious, Bernice L. McFadden produces a mesmerizing, fantastical historical novel featuring the spirit of Emmett Till.

Akashic Books Makeda
Randall Robinson

“Makeda is a soaring, wrenching, and ultimately revealing glimpse into the roles within a powerful matriarchal family. . . . A must read for anyone who wants to appreciate history, the role of women, and the significance of transferring ideas, goals, and ambitions from one generation to the next.”—Charles J. Ogletree Jr., author of The Presumption of Guilt “In Robinson’s majestic prose and sweeping historical vision, the tongues of Virginia Woolf, Gabriel García Márquez, and Toni Morrison blend to remind us that we can renew our souls in the eyes of ancestors who return to us in whatever way our lives demand.”—Michael Eric Dyson, author of Know What I Mean? Makeda Gee Florida Harris March is a proud matriarch, the anchor and emotional bellwether who holds together a hard-working African American family living in 1950s Richmond, Virginia. Lost in shadow is Makeda’s grandson Gray, who begins escaping into the magical world of Makeda’s tiny parlor. Makeda, a woman blind since birth but who has always dreamed in color, begins to confide in Gray the things she “sees” and remembers from her dream state, and a story emerges that is layered with historical accuracy beyond the scope of Makeda’s limited education. Gradually, Gray begins to make a connection between his grandmother’s dreams and the epic life of an African queen described in the Bible. Part coming-of-age story, part spiritual journey, and part love story, Makeda is a universal tale of family, heritage, and the ties that bind. Randall Robinson plumbs the hearts of Makeda and Gray and summons our collective blood memories, taking the reader on an unforgettable journey of the soul that will linger long after the last page has been turned. Randall Robinson is the author of An Unbroken Agony and the national bestsellers The Debt, The Reckoning, Quitting America, and Defending the Spirit. In 1984 he established the Free South Africa Movement, which pushed successfully for the imposition of US sanctions against apartheid South Africa. In 1994 his public advocacy, including a twenty-seven-day hunger strike, led to the UN multinational operation that restored Haiti’s first democratically elected government to power. Robinson is a professor of law at Penn State Law School and is the creator, co-producer, and host of the public television human rights series World on Trial. He lives with his wife Hazel in St. Kitts, West Indies.

Akashic Books The Plot Against Hip Hop: A Novel
Nelson George

“The most accomplished black music critic of his generation.”—The Washington Post Book World “Perhaps one of the greatest books ever written. It has the realness of The Autobiography of Malcolm X, the warmth of The Color Purple, and the page count of Tuesdays with Morrie. It’s a must-read.”—Chris Rock on City Kid The Plot Against Hip Hop is a noir novel set in the world of hip hop culture. The stabbing murder of esteemed music critic Dwayne Robinson in a Soho office building is dismissed by the NYPD as a gang initiation. But his old friend, bodyguard and security expert D Hunter, suspects there are larger forces at work. D Hunter’s investigation into his mentor’s murder leads into a parallel history of hip hop, a place where renegade government agents, behind-thescenes power brokers, and paranoid journalists know a truth that only a few hardcore fans suspect. This rewrite of hip hop history mixes real-life figures with characters pulled from the culture’s hidden world, including Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Russell Simmons. D Hunter has his own secrets, his own vulnerabilities, which he fights to overcome as he becomes a reluctant private eye. After reading The Plot Against Hip Hop, you’ll never hear the music the same way. Nelson George is one of the first writers to document hip hop culture and is the author of several award-winning books on the subject, including Hip Hop America, The Death of Rhythm & Blues, and Russell Simmons’ autobiography Life and Def. He directed Queen Latifah in the HBO film Life Support, and executive produces VH1’s long-running Hip Hop Honors broadcast.
A riveting noir novel set in hip hop culture, by best-selling and critically acclaimed author Nelson George.

“Total genius.”—Jonathan Lethem, author of Motherless Brooklyn “This is the most honest children’s book ever written. And it’s f*cking hilarious.” —A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically “I wish this book had been around during my daughter’s overly protracted sleep rituals! Finally, someone tells it like it really is. This is no-guilt funny and a godsend!”—Cristina García, author of The Lady Matador’s Hotel Go the Fuck To Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing off to dreamland. Honest, profane, and affectionate, Adam Mansbach’s verses and Ricardo Cortés’ illustrations perfectly capture the familiar—and unspoken—tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night, and open up a conversation about parenting in the process. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny, Go the Fuck to Sleep is a perfect gift for parents new, old, or expectant. Here is a sample verse:

Alice James Books Pier
Janine Oshiro

“As if through an echolocation of brilliant and insistent off-rhyme, these poems effect a delicate placement of self into body, body into world, world into word. And at the center of it all is an even more delicate loss. Janine Oshiro’s Pier takes its measure in precise instances that ache with intelligence. A truly masterful first book.”—Cole Swensen Seeking to identify the self that straddles both spiritual and physical worlds, Janine Oshiro’s multidimensional poems are borderlands—wild and uncontained— where vision and illusion become crucial to survival. Pier is a place of frenzied collision where human industry meets feral ocean, a place of arrivals, departures, and transitions. Within these unique architectures, lyric intensity abounds and our identities discover a common landscape. From “Habitat”: Here is a paper house to burn. Here are the stones that address the pond. Now count down the rings at the top of the temple. The invasive frogs are said to die upon leaving their original habitat. A pleading look in the eyes, sunshined, eclipsed by a pupil. I want outside. In the wrist is a bone like a boat. I have been a long time out of water. Janine Oshiro holds degrees from Whitworth College (now Whitworth University), Portland State University, and the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She is a Kundiman fellow and the recipient of a poetry fellowship from Oregon’s Literary Arts. She lives in Hawaii and teaches at Windward Community College.
Called “a truly masterful first book” by Cole Swenson, Pier is the inaugural winner of the Kundiman Poetry Prize.

Alice James Books Hagar Before the Occupation Hagar After the Occupation
Amal al-Jubouri
Translated by Rebecca Gayle Howell and Husam Qaisi
“Through these poems, Amal al-Jubouri connects us to the earliest known poems, and yet the dialectic tension between them is utterly contemporary. Al-Jubouri writes ‘This is my protest, this is my folly,’ yet these poems are neither simple protest nor in any sense folly. These poems are both essential and eternal.”—Nick Flynn This translation of Iraqi author Amal al-Jubouri contextualizes America’s occupation of Iraq through the Qur’an’s story of Hagar. Complementary pairs of poems portray life before and after the war. This work simultaneously mirrors Hagar’s desperate running between Safa and Marwah, as we pace frantically between pre- and post-occupation Iraq—the poet begging in vain for poetry not to abandon her people. Honor before the occupation Worship the Leader Love the Party Curse America, the siege ~ Honor after the occupation Curse the Dictator Forsake the Party Clap with flowers in your hand for America, her wall Amal al-Jubouri, a native of Iraq, is the author of five collections of poetry including Wine from Wounds; Words, Set Me Free!; Enheduanna, Priestess of Exile; and 99 Veils. In 1997 she took asylum in Germany after having been listed first on Uday Hussein’s list of renegade Iraqi writers and was the first Iraqi writer to return to Baghdad, two days after the fall of the regime. The founder and editor-in-chief of al-Diwan, the first and only Arab-German literary magazine, she is president of the East-West Diwan German Cultural Foundation and acts as cultural counselor for the Yemen Embassy in Berlin.
Iraqi author Amal al-Jubouri contextualizes America’s occupation of Iraq through a Qur’an parable, portraying life before and after the war.

Alice James Books me and Nina
Monica A. Hand

“Monica Hand’s me and Nina is a beautiful book by a soul survivor. In these poems she sings deep songs of violated intimacy and the hard work of repair. The poems are unsentimental, blood-red, and positively true, note for note, like the singing of Nina Simone herself. Hand has written a moving, deeply satisfying, and unforgettable book.”—Elizabeth Alexander In an intimate conversation with the “High Priestess of Soul,” Monica A. Hand surveys the places and moods of alienation through poems that are as musical and stylistically diverse as Nina Simone’s work. Hand readily embraces a “mass hypnosis” style, putting “a spell on [us]” with her intensely passionate cries and commitment to embracing both tragedy and exuberance in these insightful poems. From “Dear Nina”: I am not recession depression oppression compression crooked line broken line polka dot parking lot or spot I am a Gift from God I know that I am an un-kept solo song Monica A. Hand is a poet and book artist currently living in Harlem, New York. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Aunt Chloe, Black Renaissance Noire, The Sow’s Ear, Drunken Boat, Beyond the Frontier, African-American Poetry for the 21st Century, Gathering Ground: A Reader Celebrating Cave Canem’s First Decade, and elsewhere. She holds an MFA in poetry and poetry in translation from Drew University and is a founding member of Poets for Ayiti.
Experimental, stylistically diverse, and musical, me and Nina reflects an intimate conversation between the author and Nina Simone.

New and Selected Poems

Peter Dale
Peter Dale’s qualities as a lyric poet are unusual: he marries intimacy of address with remarkable skill in formal verse. He is interested in his subjects— love, relationships, memory, all kinds of daily exchange—and in bringing them directly to the reader with unassuming craft and conviction. The precision of his writing matches its intensity of feeling. This book is the product of fifty years’ elegant, incisive, thoughtful, and moving work by a leading British poet of rare skill. Dale is also the acclaimed translator of Dante’s Divine Comedy and several French poets, including Jules Laforgue, Tristan Corbière, François Villon, and Paul Valéry. Peter Dale was a secondary school teacher in England for many years and was co-editor of the influential journal Agenda. He now lives in Wales.

Petrarch: Songs and Sonnets
A Bilingual Selection

Translated with an introduction by Nicholas Kilmer
I saw the tracks of angels in the earth, The beauty of heaven walking by itself on the world. The great fourteenth-century poet’s lyric and love poems are presented as living poetry in Nicholas Kilmer’s powerful and moving versions. His selection convinces us that, as he puts it, “Petrarch deserves to be valued as a real man, a careful thinker, a good poet.” Free in form yet holding close to the central impulses of Petrarch’s inspiration, Kilmer’s “readings” in this bilingual edition present Petrarch as a confessional poet, but one who is a humane moralist of startling honesty. Nicholas Kilmer, former dean of the Swain College of Art and Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts, has made his living as an art dealer and curator since leaving teaching in 1982. He also writes mysteries set in the art world.

Archipelago Books Harlequin’s Millions
Bohumil Hrabal
Translated by Stacey Knecht
“Czechoslovakia’s greatest living writer.”—Milan Kundera In this moving, absorbing novel, we meet the eccentric residents of a home for the elderly who reminisce about their lives and their changing country. Written with a keen eye for the absurd and peppered with dialogue that captures the poignancy of the everyday, Harlequin’s Millions is a sensual delight. Bohumil Hrabal (1914–1997) worked as a railway dispatcher during the Nazi occupation of then-Czechoslovakia, a traveling salesman, a steelworker, a recycling mill worker, and a stagehand. His novels were censored under the Communist regime and have since been translated into nearly thirty languages.

A must for anyone interested in anti-realist fiction.”—Rain Taxi Review of Books The characters in Prehistoric Times remind us of the inhabitants of Samuel Beckett’s world: dreamers who in their savage and deductive folly try to modify reality.

“Wouldn’t you like to buy a dog?” the angel asked, holding in his arms my heart barking, letting blood like a tail. In Nichita Stanescu’s world, angels and mysterious forces converse with the ˘ earthbound while love and a quest for truth remain central. His startling images cut deep and his grappling—making bold leaps—is full of humor. His poems seduce the reader away from the human. The poems of Nichita Stanescu (1933–1983) are written in clear language ˘ while posing profound metaphysical questions.

Arsenal Pulp Press Hoopla
The Art of Unexpected Embroidery

Leanne Prain
Photographs by Jeff Christenson
Hoopla, by the co-author of 2009’s bestselling Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti, showcases those who take the craft of embroidery where it’s never gone before, in an astonishing, full-color display of embroidered art. Hoopla rebels against the quaint and familiar embroidery motifs of flowers and swashes, and focuses instead on innovative stitch artists who specialize in unusual, guerrilla-style patterns such as subway maps, feminist Girl Guide badges, and metal band letterforms; it demonstrates that modern embroidery artists are as sharp as the needles with which they work. Hoopla includes twenty-nine innovative embroidery patterns and profiles of contemporary embroidery artists, including Jenny Hart, author of Sublime Stitching; Rosa Martyn of the UK-based Craftivism Collective; Ray Materson, an ex-con who learned to stitch in prison; Sherry Lynn Wood of the Tattooed Baby Doll Project, which collaborated with female tattoo artists across the United States; Penny Nickles and Johnny Murder, the self-proclaimed Bonnie and Clyde of embroidery; and Alexandra Walters, a military wife who replicates military portraits and weapons in her stitching. Full-color throughout and bursting with history, technique, and sass, Hoopla will teach readers how to stitch a mythical jackalope; needlepoint nipple doilies, a ransom note pillow, and mean and dainty knuckle-tattoo church gloves; and create their own innovative embroidery projects. If you like anarchistic DIY craft and the idea of deviating from the rules, Hoopla will inspire you to wield a needle with flair!

Arsenal Pulp Press We Sure Can!
How Jams and Pickles Are Reviving the Lure and Lore of Local Food

Sarah B. Hood
We Sure Can! celebrates the ongoing “Canvolution,” in which urban “preservationists,” local-food aficionados, rural picklers and jammers, and food bloggers are rediscovering the lost art of home canning jams, pickles, and other preserves. And we’re not talking your standard strawberry jam here; passionate canners are preserving all manner of fruits and vegetables and combining them with unexpectedly exotic spices and ingredients. The book features over one hundred recipes from an international assembly of inventive canners (including the author herself), as well as profiles of those who do it best. The book’s recipes are divided according to the seasons; some of the more tantalizing creations include Lemongrass, Ginger, & Kaffir Lime Jelly; Blackberry Lime Jam; Dandelion Jelly; Pickled Ramps; Lavender Peach Preserves; and Pickled Watermelon Rinds. The book also features practical and important information and safety tips for those wanting to start canning produce at home. Perfect for fans of the growing locavore movement and those who are empowered by the idea of “putting up” their own preserves, this book will inspire readers to start their own jam sessions as soon as the year’s bumper crop of fruits and vegetables becomes available. Can anybody join the movement? We sure can! Sarah B. Hood is a freelance food writer who has been canning for more than a decade. Her preserves have won prizes from Canada’s Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and the Culinary Historians of Canada. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.
A cookbook and guide to the “preservationists” and locavore aficionados who are rediscovering the lost art of jams and pickles.

Arsenal Pulp Press Shoot It!
Hollywood Inc. and the Rising of Independent Film

David Spaner
Shoot It! is a revealing history of how Hollywood, with its eye on the bottom line, arguably lost its ability to support the work of creative filmmakers; it is also a passionate portrait of the American independent film scene that has produced some of the best movies of the last two decades and inspired those in other countries to do the same. The book examines the Hollywood studio system over several decades, from the period when moguls like Harry and Jack Warner and Louis B. Mayer made quality yet commercially viable films, to today, when studios seem only interested in surefire sequels and comic-book adaptations aimed at a global audience. By the same token, Shoot It! also celebrates today’s great movies produced outside of the studio system, chronicling the international independent film movement in seven countries (the United States, Canada, Mexico, Britain, France, Romania, and South Korea), from its roots (French New Wave, British kitchen sink, the New York scene) to the revolutionary impact of digital technology. It also features commentary from indie film notables such as Gus Van Sant, Mike Leigh, Claire Denis, Atom Egoyan, Catherine Breillat, Sally Potter, John Sayles, and Ken Loach. While the studios envisage a generic universe, repressing local film cultures along the way, talented independents continue to tell local stories with universal appeal. This book is a celebration of those determined filmmakers who, despite it all, overcome all obstacles and just shoot it. David Spaner is a film critic and freelance journalist in Vancouver, British Columbia.
A study of independent film in seven countries around the world, celebrating the talented renegade filmmakers who defy the mainstream.

Arsenal Pulp Press The Inverted Gaze
Queering the French Literary Classics in America

François Cusset
Translated by David Homel
François Cusset, author of the acclaimed book French Theory, investigates the queering of the French literary canon by American writers and scholars in this thought-provoking and free-minded journey across six centuries of literary classics and sexual polemics. Cusset presents the foundations and rationale for American queer theory, the field of study established in the 1990s and promulgated by writers and scholars such as Judith Butler, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, and Michael Warner (in the wake of Michel Foucault), which challenges a supposed “heteronormative” ideology in our culture. He provides an overview of their reinterpretation of the French literary canon from a queer perspective, then deliberately goes further, confronting that same canon with a lively form of general suspicion—seeking gender trouble and sexual ambiguities in the most unexpected corners of French literary classics, in which macho heroes turn out to be homosocial melancholics and the most seemingly submissive housewives are great vanguards of lesbian liberation. Cusset’s survey includes medieval and Renaissance literature, works from the Age of Enlightenment, nineteenth-century avant-gardists such as Charles Baudelaire and Honoré de Balzac, and twentieth-century modernists such as Marcel Proust and Jean Genet. Bold in its themes and propositions, The Inverted Gaze (a translation of the book Queer Critics) is an extraordinary work about French literature and American queer politics by one of France’s biggest intellectual stars. François Cusset is a professor of American studies at the University of Paris. He is the author of numerous books including French Theory (2008). David Homel is an award-winning translator and writer who lives in Montreal, Quebec.
A book by the acclaimed intellectual historian on the queering of the French literary canon by American writers and scholars.

Aztext Press Little House Off the Grid
Our Family’s Journey to Self-Sufficiency

Cam Mather and Michelle Mather

Like so many other city-dwellers, Cam and Michelle Mather longed for a simpler, quieter life in the country. When they found a century-old farmhouse on 150 acres of land that was in their price range, they jumped at the chance to make their move. The fact that the home was “off-grid” with no power or telephone lines connecting it to the outside world seemed like a bonus! Twelve years later their life in the country is not quite as simple as they had envisioned, but it is peaceful. There were more challenges than they could have anticipated, as well as more rewards. Along the way they installed more solar panels, erected a wind turbine, and upgraded and replaced all of the major components of their off-grid electrical system. They installed a solar-thermal hot water system; figured out how to have a phone, internet, and satellite TV; and kept their home heated with wood cut from their own property. They also carved out a garden and began growing much of their own food. They acquired new skills and knowledge, but, most importantly, they learned to appreciate the value of good neighbors, good books, and good manure. Cam Mather is a writer, publisher, and video producer who knows how to equalize batteries and pinch suckers off of tomato plants. Michelle Mather looks after the editing, the website, and the dwindling bank account and keeps Cam calm during times of crisis.

Behler Publications
Lake Forest, CA

Since 2003, Behler Publications has been publishing best-selling and critically acclaimed works chronicling personal journeys with socially relevant themes: stories that deal with how people are influenced and changed by their experiences and how they deal with those repercussions. Our books invite introspection: “I’m a better and more thoughtful/smarter person for having read this book.” We are excited about our upcoming titles, including Throwaway Players: The Concussion Crisis From Pee Wee Football to the NFL by former Tampa Bay Buccaneers president Gay Culverhouse. This is a timely story of the violence and resulting health issues in sports and the NFL in particular. Off the Street explores the downside of the “victimless crime” of prostitution and offers parents guidance on how to protect their daughters from these predators. Highlights of our best-selling backlist include KTLA’s News at Ten: 60 Years with Stan Chambers, the Los Angeles news icon and Los Angeles Times bestseller. Stan began his career with the record-breaking twenty-four-hour coverage of Kathy Fiscus in 1949 and, years later, broke the Rodney King beating. CBS News correspondent Barry Petersen made a huge impact on readers with his heartfelt tribute to his wife in Jan’s Story, a Denver Post bestseller, as he details how “forever” suddenly and terrifyingly has an expiration date. Behler Publications also enjoyed giving the reading public Julie Genovese’s uplifting memoir Nothing Short of Joy, to which Wayne Dyer and Bernie Siegel, MD, gave enthusiastic high-fives. Our last season closed with a brilliant, inspirational, and vital book with Kim Michele Richardson’s The Unbreakable Child, which not only covers the only successfully prosecuted case against a Kentucky Roman Catholic orphanage, but includes Kim’s letter to the Pope and his reply. This book received a starred review from Booklist. We hope you enjoy looking at our upcoming titles and thought-provoking backlist. We’re certain you’ll find them as irresistible as our readers have.

Behler Publications Off the Street
Christopher Baughman

“I couldn’t put it down, and neither will you.”—John Lescroart, New York Times best-selling author of the Dismas Hardy novels and The Hunt Club Off the Street is detective Christopher Baughman’s true life story of fighting to protect a class of women who are too easily forgotten and readily dismissed. Chris and the Las Vegas Pandering Investigation Team (PIT) wage war against the pimps who kidnap, trick, and beat women into submission and into a life of prostitution. What begins with an attempt to apprehend, arrest, and convict a pimp responsible for beating a woman with a baseball bat over a two-day period quickly spirals into something far more sinister. Chris shares the emotions of the victims, parents, and family members who are involved in this investigation and offers parents guidance on how to protect their daughters from these predators. Chris ventures back to his own youth, to a memory that served as the momentum for his passion for saving the people and the city he has sworn to protect. Christopher Baughman heads up the Pandering Investigation Team (PIT) and Human Trafficking Task Force in Las Vegas, where his team has arrested and convicted several of the city’s wealthiest and most violent criminals. Their success caught the attention of investigative reporter Chris Hansen of NBC’s Dateline Undercover: To Catch a Predator and has been the subject of several episodes, as well as a segment on NBC’s American Greed. Chris teaches the anatomy of pandering investigations to other departments across the nation, including members of the FBI, IRS, and federal parole and probation agencies.

Behler Publications Throwaway Players
The Concussion Crisis From Pee Wee Football to the NFL

Gay Culverhouse

The NFL insists players know they’re playing a dangerous game, but players never see the deteriorated mental capacities of their former heroes. Throwaway Players is former Tampa Bay Buccaneers president Gay Culverhouse’s story of the broken bodies and lost souls of the men who have left the locker room and what remains after the cheering subsides. Focused on making money rather than the well-being of their players, this is the dark side of football the NFL doesn’t want fans to see. Additionally, high schools, colleges, and independent sports organizations have little oversight when choosing player’s equipment. This breeds a new generation of kids suffering from multiple concussions and damaged lives. Throwaway Players offers guidance to parents navigating the world of competitive sports as well as advocacy and resources for athletes often left in the dark about appropriate procedures for treating injuries, especially head traumas. Throwaway Players is essential reading for any parent, athlete, and sports fan. Gay Culverhouse testified before Congress on football head injuries and successfully changed the policy of including an independent neurologist on the sidelines of every NFL game. Gay’s work with former players has appeared in The New York Times, Sarasota Herald Tribune, St. Petersburg Times, The Tampa Tribune, Time magazine, and many more. She has appeared on several radio shows, including PBS and ESPN, and is featured in three documentaries that are in postproduction (with CNN, ESPN, and an independent filmmaker). In November 2009 Gay formed The Gay Culverhouse Players’ Outreach Program, Inc., a nonprofit organization to further the work nationally for retired players.

Bellevue Literary Press The Body Politic
The Battle Over Science in America

Jonathan D. Moreno
In her foreword to Science Next, Elizabeth Edwards wrote of science as a tool for social progress: “Innovation is not simply the abstract victory of knowledge [or] the research that gave me years to live; the next science can advance human flourishing and serve the common good. That’s the kind of world I want to leave for my children, and for yours.” With these words, she joined a tradition that goes back to America’s founders, who saw America itself as a “great experiment.” Yet while no one can deny that science undergirds the American Dream, it has long been fertile terrain for the “culture wars.” Along with arguing the pros and cons of abortion and healthcare, policymakers must now grapple with advancements that raise questions about what it means to be human: we’ve decoded the genome, but should we modify it to enhance certain “desirable” traits? If we can, should we prolong life at any cost? Will we soon be counting robots, cyborgs, and chimeras among our friends and family? The first book to unpack our love/hate relationship with science from our country’s origins to today, The Body Politic is essential reading for science buffs and concerned citizens alike. Jonathan D. Moreno is editor of the Center for American Progress’ online magazine Science Progress and professor of bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. Author and editor of many seminal books and articles on science and science policy, he divides his time between Philadelphia, PA, and Washington, DC.
The Body Politic is the first comprehensive history of the significance and struggles over science in America.

Bellevue Literary Press The Odditorium
Stories

Melissa Pritchard

Praise for Melissa Pritchard: “Melissa Pritchard is one of our finest writers.”—Annie Dillard “Pritchard’s quicksilver ability to blend biting social/political commentary with a rueful analysis of relationships makes [her work a] delight.” —Publishers Weekly “I have admired Melissa Pritchard’s writing for several years now for its wisdom, its humble elegance, and its earthy comedy.”—Rick Moody In each of these eight genre-bending tales, Melissa Pritchard overturns the conventions of mysteries, westerns, gothic horror, and historical fiction to capture surprising and often shocking aspects of her characters’ lives. In one story, Pritchard creates a pastiche of historical facts, songs, and tall tales, contrasting the famed figures of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, including Annie Oakley and Sitting Bull, with the real, genocidal history of the American West. Other stories are inspired by the mysterious life of Kaspar Hauser, a haunted Victorian hospital where the wounded of D-Day are taken during World War II, and the story of Robert LeRoy Ripley of “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” and his beguiling “odditoriums,” told from the perspective of his lifelong fact checker. Melissa Pritchard is a Flannery O’Connor, Janet Heidinger Kafka, and Carl Sandburg Award–winning author. She has also been an embedded journalist in Afghanistan, where she befriended Ashton Goodman, a young soldier she memorialized for O, The Oprah Magazine, and authored a biography of Virginia Galvin Piper that US Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor called “a delight to read.” Founder of the Ashton Goodman Grant and the Afghan Women’s Writing Project, she teaches at Arizona State University.
A masterly new collection from the award-winning author of two New York Times notable books.

Bellevue Literary Press Epigenetics in the Age of Twitter
Pop Culture and Modern Science

Gerald Weissmann
Praise for Gerald Weissmann: “The premier essayist of our time, Gerald Weissmann writes with grace and style.”—Richard Selzer “[Weissmann] bridges the space between science and the humanities, and particularly between medicine and the muses, with wit, erudition, and, most important, wisdom.”—Adam Gopnik “Weissmann introduces us to a new way of thinking about the connections between art and medicine.”—The New York Times Book Review Called “an absolutely first-rate writer” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Gerald Weissmann is not merely another popular science writer and intellectual historian, but one of our most incisive cultural critics and satirists. Whether contrasting the science of reproductive biology with J-Lo’s view of fertility, engaging in the healthcare debate, or imagining the future prose styling of the scientific research paper in the age of Twitter, his writing is always instructive and often hilarious. Epigenetics, which attempts to explain how our genes respond to our environment, is the latest twist on the historic nature/nurture debate. In addressing this and other controversies in contemporary science Weissmann taps what he calls “the social network of Western Civilization,” including the many neglected women of science: from the martyred Hypatia of Alexandria, the first woman scientist, to the Nobel laureates Marie Curie, Christine NussleinVolhard, and Elizabeth Blackburn, among other luminaries in the field. Gerald Weissmann is director of the Biotechnology Study Center at the New York University School of Medicine and editor-in-chief of The FASEB Journal. His essays and reviews have appeared in numerous publications worldwide, including the London Review of Books and The New York Times Book Review.
Pop culture meets cutting-edge science in this one-volume introduction to the history of science and modern biology.

Why Not?
Fifteen Reasons to Live

Ray Robertson
Shortly after completing his sixth novel, Ray Robertson suffered a depression of suicidal intensity. Central to his recovery was the decision to try to answer two of the biggest questions we can ask. What makes humans happy? And what makes a life worth living? His answers aren’t what you might expect from a mental illness memoir— but they’re exactly what you’d expect from Ray Robertson. With the vitality of Nick Hornby and a brashness all his own, Robertson runs his hands over life, death, intoxication, and art. Unashamedly working-class and unabashedly literary, Why Not? is a rolling, rocking, anti-Sisyphean odyssey.

Suitable Precautions

FICTION / SHORT STORIES October A Paperback Original 5¼ x 7¼ | 180 pp Trade Paper US $16.95 978-1-926845-29-6 US

When a woman discovers a fortune in the attic, she begins a pilgrimage that takes her to the knife-edge between blessing and curse. Two fatherless children think Mr. Crisander is nothing more than the creepy next-door neighbor— until they nearly kill his pot-bellied pig and learn the secrets of his past. A young girl talks about grade six, stealing cigarettes, and her sister’s no-food diet while being photographed by an Internet pornographer. The stories of Suitable Precautions are fresh and haunting, resonant with the bitter beauty of lives derailed, reclaimed, celebrated, and questioned. By turns funny and absurd, unexpected and devastating, these stories reveal the strange and tenuous bonds between people in love, marriage, and friendship. Laura Boudreau’s work has been published in Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Switzerland. She lives in London, England, where she works in publishing.

Funny and surreal “horror” stories about how we relate to one another and ourselves.

Contemporary Design Methodologies in Architecture

Mark Mückenheim and Juliane Demel

Inspiration provides a comprehensive overview of new design methods and techniques that are emerging in the field of architecture. Many of these design methods make use of digital media and computer algorithms. Some already existed for a long time, but are reinvented in new ways, like design by folding paper materials. These new methodologies have changed the way architects and students design. The book showcases hundreds of examples, models, sketches, and renderings of architectural designs within dozens of different methodologies, including: • • • • Designing with basic elements (lines, circles, squares, planes, dots) Pattern development (texture, axes, grids, symmetry) Spacial patterns (structure, matrix, modules) Typography as a design tool (psychological phenomena, composition theory, color design) • Nonspatial and spatial transformations (figure ground relations, additive spatial design, spatial effects) • Basic spatial design, complex spatial design, and parametric design

Bitter Lemon Press Sweet Money
Ernesto Mallo
Translated by Katherine Silver

Praise for Ernesto Mallo’s Needle in a Haystack: “A vivid and compelling picture of a society riven by corruption, social breakdown, and casual brutality. A pacy, intense, and thought-provoking read.”—Guardian “Martin Cruz Smith and Philip Kerr fans will be rewarded.”—Publishers Weekly “A gritty, painful portrait of a dystopian culture spinning further and further out of control. A compelling, blood-stained document of tyranny and brutality told with skill and passion.”—Crime Time In the second book in the Superintendent Lascano series, Lascano is drawn into a war between the Buenos Aires chief of police and the Apostles, drugdealing cops who want to control the city. When the chief of police is murdered, Lascano becomes the Apostles’ next target. His only way out of the country is to retrieve the loot from a bungled bank robbery. Ernesto Mallo paints a scathing portrait of Argentina, where the Junta’s generals are paraded in court in civilian clothes and treated like mere petty thieves. Corruption and violence continue to rule, but at the center of the novel lies a touching portrayal of two broken men, a cop and a robber, whose humanity is sorely tested by the troubles racking their beloved country. Born in 1948, Ernesto Mallo is a published essayist, newspaper columnist, and playwright. He is a former militant, pursued by the dictatorship as a member of the guerilla movement.
Argentina: the dictators are on trial, but corruption and violence are still rampant. A crime novel by a former guerrillero.

Bitter Lemon Press All Yours
Claudia Piñeiro
Translated by Miranda France
Praise for Claudia Piñeiro’s Thursday Night Widows: “An agile novel, a ruthless dissection of a fast decaying society.”—José Saramago, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature “A gripping story. The dystopia portrayed is an indictment not solely of an assassin but of Argentina’s class structure and the willful blindness of its petty bourgeoisie.”—The Times Literary Supplement “A fine morality tale which explores the dark places societies enter when they place material comfort before social justice, and security before morality.” —Publishers Weekly Ines is convinced that every wife is bound to be betrayed one day, so she is not surprised to find a note in her husband Ernesto’s briefcase with a heart smeared in lipstick crossed by the words “All Yours” and signed, “Your true love.” She follows him to a park on a rainy winter evening and witnesses a violent quarrel he has with another woman. The woman collapses; Ernesto sinks her body in a nearby lake. When Ernesto becomes a suspect in the case she provides him with an alibi. After all, hatred can bring people together as urgently as love. But Ernesto cannot bring his sexual adventures to an end, so Ines concocts a plan for revenge from which there is no return. Claudia Piñeiro, formerly a journalist and playwright, is the author of literary crime novels that are all bestsellers in Latin America and have been translated into six languages. All Yours follows on the success of Thursday Night Widows, published in 2010 in the United States.
A portrait of a wife betrayed, at first desperate to save her marriage but then intent on violent revenge, by an Argentinian best-selling writer.

Bitter Lemon Press Liar Moon
Ben Pastor
Praise for Ben Pastor’s Lumen: “Pastor’s plot is well crafted, her prose sharp. . . . A disturbing mix of detection and reflection.”—Publishers Weekly “Rivets the reader with its twist of historical realities. A historical piece, it faithfully reproduces the grim canvas of war. A character study, it captures the thoughts and actions of real people, not stereotypes.”—The Free Lance-Star “And don’t miss Lumen by Ben Pastor. . . . An interesting, original, and melancholy tale.”—Literary Review Italy, September 1943. The Italian government switches sides and declares war on Germany. The north of Italy is controlled by the fascist puppets of Germany; the south liberated by Allied forces fighting their way up the peninsula. Having survived hell on the Russian front, Wehrmacht major and aristocrat Baron Martin von Bora is sent to Verona. He is ordered to investigate the murder of a prominent local fascist: a bizarre death threatening to discredit the regime’s public image. The prime suspect is the victim’s twentyeight-year-old widow Clara. Haunted by his record of opposition to SS policies in Russia, Bora must watch his step. Against the backdrop of relentless anti-partisan warfare and the tragedy of the Holocaust, a breathless chase begins. Ben Pastor, born and now back in Italy, lived for thirty years in the United States, working as a university professor in Vermont. The first in the Martin Bora series, Lumen, was published by Bitter Lemon Press in May 2011.
Set in Italy during World War II, a German army officer investigates the murder of a local Italian fascist amid the horrors of a brutal regime.

Black Balloon books are risky but not gimmicky, whimsical but never light, intelligent but not precious. We cater to writers who kick conventions curbside, who provoke without sentiment, who make the despicable somehow appealing. We’re in the feeling business. We want jaws dropping, stomachs twisting, eyes brimming. We’re out to horrify and delight, to unleash linguistic elegance that matters. We cross genres willy-nilly—epic memoirs, stripped of psychology, then fictionalized. Food and music expressed in song. Cities profiled with bizarre personalities. Tragedies crafted from a roll call of jokes. We break and build forms, invent new languages, find beauty in violence, humor in paralysis. We’re hyper, happy, and, yes, a bit sick. We are small, on purpose—two to six books year. Every author enjoys the benefits of a personalized publicist, customized sales strategy, interactive websites, book trailers, and all the vanguard media tools available. We’re out to sell books, to verbally seduce—not to make obscure literary statements. Our commitment to supporting authors extends to eBooks, phone apps, vooks, and interactive collages. We are not Luddites. If folks prefer visual aids—maps of brains, architectural blueprints, animated creatures swinging from jungle gyms—we’re not ones to withhold. We’re just happy people are reading.

In her own words, Janice N.

I haven’t forgotten what I saw, heard, felt, or learned.” Janice N. Harrington’s debut Even the Hollow My Body Made is Gone earned the 2007 Kate Tufts Discovery Award, the A.

Carsten René Nieslen
Translated with an introduction by David Keplinger

“These poems do much more than blur the line between illusion and reality: they evoke that vibrant contradiction of dreaming in which the real and unreal exist in perfect simultaneity.”—The Georgia Review Theatre A man performs whole days from his life as a drama, each day at home in his apartment. He goes to great lengths to be as realistic as possible, walking around the apartment and tending to day-to-day business. Only at night, when he sits by himself in the kitchen, does he peek now and then at the window to glimpse his audience. He won’t completely abandon the notion that someone is out there. It’s like when you stand on the landing, in front of a closed door, and you can’t help thinking that someone is watching through the peephole. With a dozen poems previously published in The Paris Review, Carsten René Nielsen is already a familiar name to US poetry readers. These dark prose poems—reminiscent of Charles Simic—map out a uniquely European territory with chilling, cinematic clarity.

Breakaway Books The Belgian Hammer
Forging Young Americans into Professional Cyclists

Daniel Lee
Foreword by George Hincapie
This is the story of what it takes for young Americans to make it in professional cycling. Only thirty-six Americans have competed in the Tour de France since the world’s greatest bicycle race began in 1903. That’s not too many more than the twelve Americans who have walked on the moon. It’s far fewer than the more than 340 Americans who, as of 2006, had reached the summit of Mount Everest. For an American cyclist to break into professional European cycling and reach the Tour de France is to scale a lofty mountain and venture into a strange new world. But rising stars such as Lawson Craddock of Texas, Ben King of Virginia, Taylor Phinney of Colorado, Cole House of Wisconsin, and Tyler Farrar of Washington State are doing just that as they endure crashes, cold rain, cobblestones, crosswinds, and culture shock on their road to cycling stardom. This is the story of the next generation—of riders not yet tainted by drug scandals, of riders still bursting with hope and potential. This is the story American cycling fans need right now.
An inside look at young American cyclists trying to break into European pro racing.

Breakaway Books And Then the Vulture Eats You
True Tales About Ultramarathons and Those Who Run Them Second Edition

Edited by John L. Parker, Jr.
“It won’t matter whether or not you’ve attempted an ultra, or whether or not you even dream of one. If you enjoy running and reading, you’ll want this book.”—David Meyers, Running Journal The best writers in the sport of running describe the last frontier of longdistance events: races longer than a marathon. James Shapiro begins by relating with heart-rending detail his experiences in a six-day race in “Swifts on the Wing.” In “To the Limit and Beyond,” Kenny Moore takes you through the Great Hawaiian Footrace, a horrendous six-day ordeal that seemingly changes his life. Don Kardong, one of the wittiest and most personable writers in the sport, in “Le Grizz” goes the fiftymile distance at the infamous race. Ed Ayres, former editor of Running Times, takes on the Western States 100 in “Wings of Icarus,” and the event turns out to be a kind of catharsis in his life. In “Road Warriors,” Hal Higdon’s report on his group’s attempt to run across the state of Indiana is a lighthearted, selfimposed challenge that turns into a spiritual odyssey. Tom Hart attempts to run a solo thirty-seven-miler on his thirty-seventh birthday, which reveals that an ultra is more than a feat of endurance, it is a journey into self. John L. Parker, Jr. ends with “And Then the Vulture Eats You,” an uproarious analysis of ultra runners. A book for all ultra runners, and for curious “normal” runners.

The Metal Cowboy and His Pint-Sized Posse Take on America First Trade Paper Edition

Joe Kurmaskie
“A reader’s trifecta: a humorous travelogue, a stirring adventure tale, and a touching family story.”—Bart King, author of The Big Book of Boy Stuff For a four-thousand-mile bicycle ride across America, Joe’s seven-year-old son Quinn rides a tagalong bike attached to his dad’s, and behind that is fiveyear-old Enzo in a bike trailer. Our hero the Metal Cowboy answers the question “What are you, crazy?” with a resounding “Yes.” With no support crew except his boys’ comic relief and the kindness of strangers, he pedals hundreds of pounds of gear and offspring over mountain passes, through thunderstorms, and into the heart of what it means to be a dad.

Joe Kurmaskie
“Mud, Sweat, and Gears is not only an incredible human-powered journey, but it’s also about the intricate, poignant, and often hilarious family dynamics that result. The Metal Cowboy’s most compelling book yet.”—Heidi Swift, The Oregonian This time the Metal Cowboy sets off to bicycle across Canada, with wife and three sons (one just a year old) along for the adventure. If Momentum Is Your Friend was about fathers, sons, and hometown heroes, Mud, Sweat, and Gears is about mothers, wives, family, and the glue that holds the world together.

CALYX Books Who in This Room
The Realities of Cancer, Fish, and Demolition

Katherine Malmo

“Katherine Malmo has written an unflinching, unsentimental, profoundly moving, wickedly funny . . . deeply courageous book detailing one woman’s diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from inflammatory breast cancer. . . . [She has] the power to reconnect us to that part of ourselves . . . that gritty, humored, resilient, unspeakably beautiful spark in the center of each of us that knows only how to lock its jaws and hang on.”—Pam Houston Based on autobiographic experiences, Who in This Room is a gripping collection of creative nonfiction that pushes the boundaries of story and memoir. Kate’s adventurous life is interrupted by a diagnosis of inflammatory breast cancer, giving her a ten percent chance of living five years. But her story isn’t just about cancer. It is a true tale of survival that is both lived and dreamt. It’s about joy found in lemon trees or fly-fishing. It’s about the survival instinct that helps us re-emerge and engage with the world. In 2005 author Katherine Malmo was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. She underwent twenty-seven weekly chemotherapy treatments, a bilateral mastectomy, and six weeks of radiation with support from family, friends, and the Young Survivor Coalition. Now a five-year survivor, Katherine is the winner of the Bellevue Literary Review’s 2009 Goldberg Prize for the chapter “Made of Metal” from Who in This Room.

Carrie
Studies in the Horror Film

Joe Aisenberg
Released in 1976, Brian DePalma’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie was marketed as a low-budget schlock film that garnered two Academy Award nominations and has become a much-studied and much-imitated classic. Joe Aisenberg’s dissection of Carrie is, amazingly, the first book-length critical study on this film ever released. In fact, so little has been written on Carrie in a critical fashion that Joe found, to his delight and horror, that he had the field pretty much all to himself. He has conducted new interviews with Brian DePalma, screenwriter Lawrence D. Cohen, and cast members, including cult legend P.J. Soles, with an in-depth analysis of plot and influence.

Chin Music Press Otaku Spaces
Patrick W. Galbraith
Photographs by Androniki Christodoulou

Otaku—nerd, über-fan, obsessive collector. Since the 1980s, the term has been used to refer to fans of Japanese anime, manga, and video games. The word appeared with no translation on the cover of the premier issue of Wired magazine in 1993. Patrick W. Galbraith has produced a groundbreaking work of reportage that takes us beyond the stereotypes of “weird Japan” and into the private rooms of self-described otaku. Interviews and more than fifty color photos reveal a seldom seen side of these reclusive Japanese collectors. They talk frankly about their collections of blow-up dolls, comic books, military paraphernalia, anime videos, and more. Galbraith follows the collectors to their favorite shops and shows how public space in Japan is starting to mimic the look and feel of the otaku’s private room. He also interviews Japan’s top cultural critics, helping to place otaku culture in wider sociological and economic contexts. Galbraith broadens his interview focus even further to include otaku from the United States and the United Kingdom, forcing those of us who live in any hyper-consumerist culture to admit that we can and do have otaku tendencies. Patrick W. Galbraith—a self-described otaku with the anime tattoos to prove it—is a PhD student at the University of Tokyo and the author of The Otaku Encyclopedia (Kodansha Limited). He also blogs at the popular Otaku2 and is widely considered one of the foremost American experts on Japan’s pop culture. Androniki Christodoulou is a freelance photographer based in Tokyo, Japan.
The first comprehensive look at Japan’s otaku collectors, including peeks inside their rooms and visits to their favorite stores.

Cinco Puntos Press Country of the Bad Wolfes
James Carlos Blake

“The novels of James Carlos Blake are reminiscent of Larry McMurtry’s Western novels—only harsher and bloodier. Like Lonesome Dove’s creator, Blake favors straight-talking, unschooled narrators who speak in a vivid, salty vernacular, and his fiction is so readable—so folksy, action-packed, and earthy—it’s easy to miss the fact that it is also, frequently, brilliant.”—Entertainment Weekly James Carlos Blake is a master at weaving historical fact into fiction. Two generations of Wolfe men—begat by an English pirate in New Hampshire in 1828— track their violent but manifest destiny through the Díaz regime in Mexico in the early 1800s and back to Gulf Coast Texas. The novel centers on two sets of identical “hero twins,” each with a violent history that mirrors the author’s belief in the primacy of violence in the evolution of civilization. Their lives are intertwined with important events through the history of Mexico, beginning in the 1820s. Crucial are the histories of the infamous Saint Patrick’s Battalion (revered in Mexico as “los San Patricios”) who deserted the US Army during the Mexican–American War (1846–1848) and the rise and fall of the Porfirio Díaz regime (1876–1910), which marked the beginning of the Mexican Revolution. James Carlos Blake was born in Tampico, Mexico, and grew up in Brownsville, Texas, and Florida. He is the author of nine novels and a collection of short stories. His novel In Rogue Blood won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for fiction in 1997. Country of Bad Wolfes is a semi-autobiographical novel.
From a Los Angeles Times Book Prize winner writing in the tradition of Larry McMurtry comes an epic tale spanning Yankee America to the Díaz regime in Mexico.

Cinco Puntos Press My Marriage A to Z
A Big-City Romance

Elinor Nauen
Illustrations by Sophy Naess
You can put this little book by your bed, in the bathroom, in your pocket or purse, wherever it’s easily at hand so you can consider the bits and pieces of your relationship with your own beloved. The A to Z of this big city romance is like a foamy broth of koans, coffee, smiles, and aspirin. It can cure a headache and sweeten the heart, and the moral of the story is you can do it yourself. The illustrations by Sophy Naess, like the work of Maira Kalman, reveal one last ingredient of Elinor Nauen’s gumbo—quirky joy. Take for instance: Beginning, in the. One day in 1983, I told my friend I was unable to read anything but the tabloids. “Are you in love?” she said. Sex. I wonder what he thinks about when we make love. One time last week I started thinking about what socks I was going to wear the next day, but usually I only think about him. I mean, I don’t even really think, I think. Zaftig. This Yiddish word means deliciously plump and juicy, with a connotation of, well, stacked. A dish, in other words, which is probably Y Johnny married me (See Sex).

Cinco Puntos Press Beauty is a Verb
The New Disability Poets

Edited by Jennifer Bartlett, Sheila Black, and Michael Northen
“We share roots, and many stories, but our different twang, our own breath animates these stories, making them sing as they are compressed against our specific bodies. ‘Going home’—who does not long for connection, location, a place? I want foreigners to see how our country lies and find familiar living tales, sung with a different melody.”—Petra Kuppers From “Beauty and Variations” by Kenny Fries: How else can I quench this thirst? My lips travel down your spine, drink the smoothness of your skin. I am searching for the core: What is beautiful? Who decides? Can the laws of nature be defied? Your body tells me: come close. But beauty distances even as it draws me near. What does my body want from yours? My twisted legs around your neck. You bend me back. Even though you can’t give the bones at birth I wasn’t given, I let you deep inside. You give me—what? Peeling back my skin, you expose my missing bones. And my heart, long before you came, just as broken. I don’t know who to blame. So each night, naked on the bed, my body doesn’t want repair, but longs for innocence. If innocent, despite the flaws I wear, I am beautiful. Disability activist Jennifer Bartlett is a poet and critic with roots in the Language school. Sheila Black is a poet and children’s book writer. Michael Northen is a poet and the editor of Wordgathering: A Journal of Poetics and Disability.

City Lights Publishers Dear White America
Letter to a New Minority

Tim Wise
“Sparing neither family nor self . . . he considers how the deck has always been stacked in his and other white people’s favor. . . . His candor is invigorating.” —Publishers Weekly “One of the most brilliant, articulate and courageous critics of white privilege in the nation.”—Michael Eric Dyson The old notion that “being white means never having to think about it” is being challenged on all fronts as whites are increasingly having to wrestle with what it means to be part of a fast-changing, culturally diverse nation. In Dear White America Tim Wise directly addresses white people’s growing concerns about political, cultural, and community-level shifts displacing their power and privilege. Wise examines the perfect storm of events fueling white anxiety: the election of a black president, economic insecurity at a level unseen by whites as a group in seventy-five years, a popular culture that reflects the nation’s growing multicultural reality, and demographic shifts that make it increasingly difficult for whites—who have long been able to see themselves as the prototypical American—to continue to view themselves as the norm. Through stories, anecdotes, and analysis, Wise taps current trends and addresses how to move forward as a unified, diverse, and vibrant democracy. Tim Wise is one of the most prominent antiracist essayists, educators, and activists in the United States. He is regularly interviewed by A-list media, including CNN, C-SPAN, The Tavis Smiley Show, The Tom Joyner Morning Show, Michael Eric Dyson’s radio program, and many more. His most recent books include Colorblind and Between Barack and a Hard Place.
Tim Wise addresses whites’ anxiety about cultural shifts displacing their power and privilege and offers ideas on how to move forward.

City Lights Publishers Redefining Black Power
Reflections on the State of Black America

Edited by Joanne Griffith
Contributions by Van Jones, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Jr., Michelle Alexander, Vincent Hardy, and Ramona Africa
The Obama presidency represents a major milestone in black history and the struggle for political, economic, and cultural equality in the United States. But how—if at all—has the first black presidency helped move things forward for people of color? Has it delivered the “change we can believe in” and “deepening of democracy” that communities of color organized around? What lessons from past struggles can be applied to this unique historical moment to advance multicultural democracy in the United States? To explore these questions, BBC journalist Joanne Griffith interviews black intellectuals, leaders, and activists and holds roundtable discussions in several communities around the country. The result is a rich and wide-ranging exploration of the hot-button issues facing African Americans today, from religion and law to education, the economy, and the ever-shifting meaning of Barack Obama’s contribution and impact. Both timely and rich in personal wisdom, Redefining Black Power connects the dots between past civil rights struggles and future of black civic and cultural life in the United States.

City Lights Publishers Crusade 2.0
The West’s Unending War Against Islam

John Feffer

In his official response to the attacks of September 11, George W. Bush invoked the Crusades, tapping into a centuries-long history of fear and aggression. The West’s longstanding perception of Islam as a threat has taken on new and more complex implications in the twenty-first century, as years of migration and resulting demographic shifts have brought the “enemy” within Western borders. Virulent opposition to the planned construction of an Islamic center near the 9/11 attack site in New York City reveals much about the intensity of public sentiments simmering just below the surface. As the United States and countries across Europe struggle with a resurgence of unexamined fear and antagonism, often directed against their own citizens, the imperative for better understanding could not be greater. Crusade 2.0 examines the resurgence of anti-Islamic sentiment in the West and its global implications. John Feffer discusses the influence of three “unfinished wars”—the Crusades, the Cold War, and the current “war on terror.” He presents a timely, concise, and provocative look at current events in the context of historical trends and goes beyond a “clash of civilizations” critique to offer concrete ways to defuse the ticking bomb of Islamophobia. John Feffer is co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC. He is the author of several books, including North Korea, South Korea. His essays have been published in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and elsewhere; he has been interviewed by CNN, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, Democracy Now! and other international news media.
Why anti-Muslim sentiment is on the rise in the United States and Europe, and what can be done to stop it.

City Lights Publishers Ether
Ben Ehrenreich

Praise for Ben Ehrenreich’s first novel The Suitors: “Smart and postmodern in a puckish, Calvino-like sense. . . . Ehrenreich writes with an ease and pure line-by-line skill that’s rare.”—The New York Times Book Review “Ehrenreich blends Tom Robbins’ sly humor with Steve Erickson’s bubbling sense of the subconscious and Voltaire’s irreverent twists of plot.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Ehrenreich shows the stirrings of an original talent.”—Publishers Weekly “Brilliant, and at the same time moving. It’s a relief to know that literature exists yet.”—Juan Goytisolo A bearded man in a badly soiled suit known only as The Stranger wanders an apocalyptic landscape on the fringes of a dying metropolis, looking for a way to “get back on top.” Thwarted and rejected at every turn by old friends and strangers alike—even by the author of this novel, whom he visits repeatedly in unsuccessful attempts to determine his own narrative—his impotence and rage are expressed in acts of seemingly senseless violence. The various characters he encounters on his journey—a pack of sadistic boys, skinheads who beat him senseless, a deaf-mute woman who tries to heal him, a sidewalk preacher, and a deranged man who identifies him as The One—avoid or abuse him, or attempt to follow him. Entertaining, disturbing, and wildly intelligent, written with sinister humor and great compassion, Ether reflects on the possibilities and consequences of forgiveness, the problems of faith, and the trials of creation. Ben Ehrenreich is an award-winning journalist and fiction writer. Ether is his second novel.
A God whose powers are reduced to petty acts of destruction attempts to reclaim his lost seat in the heavens.

City Lights Publishers Los Angeles Stories
Ry Cooder

Los Angeles Stories is a collection of loosely linked, noir-ish tales that evoke a bygone era in one of America’s most iconic cities. In post-World War II Los Angeles, as power was concentrating and fortunes were being made, a do-ityourself culture of cool cats, outsiders, and oddballs populated the old downtown neighborhoods of Bunker Hill and Chavez Ravine. Ordinary working folks rubbed elbows with petty criminals, grifters, and all sorts of women at foggy end-of-the-line outposts in Venice Beach and Santa Monica. Rich with the essence and character of the times, suffused with the patois of the city’s underclass, these are stories about the common people of Los Angeles, “a sunny place for shady people,” and the strange things that happen to them. Musicians, gun shop owners, streetwalkers, tailors, door-to-door salesmen, drifters, housewives, dentists, pornographers, new arrivals, and hard-bitten denizens all intersect in cleverly plotted stories that center around some kind of shadowy activity. This quirky love letter to a lost way of life will appeal to fans of hard-boiled fiction and anyone interested in the city itself. Ry Cooder is a world-famous guitarist, singer, and composer known for his slide guitar work, interest in roots music, and more recently for his collaborations with traditional musicians from many countries, including The Buena Vista Social Club. He has composed soundtracks for more than twenty films, including Paris, Texas. Two recent albums were accompanied by stories Cooder wrote to accompany the music. This is his first published collection of stories.
World-famous musician Ry Cooder publishes his first collection of stories, with a nod to Raymond Chandler and Nathanael West.

City Lights Publishers More Notes of a Dirty Old Man
The Uncollected Columns

Charles Bukowski
Edited by David Stephen Calonne
After toiling in obscurity for years, Charles Bukowski suddenly found fame in 1967 with his autobiographical newspaper column, “Notes of a Dirty Old Man,” and a book of that name in 1969. He continued writing this column, in one form or another, through the mid-1980s. More Notes of a Dirty Old Man gathers many uncollected gems from the column’s twenty-year run. Drawn from ephemeral underground publications, these stories and essays haven’t been seen in decades, making More a valuable addition to Bukowski’s oeuvre. Filled with his usual obsessions—sex, booze, gambling—More features Bukowski’s offbeat insights into politics and literature, his tortured, violent relationships with women, and his lurid escapades on the poetry reading circuit. Highlighting his versatility, the book ranges from thinly veiled autobiography to purely fictional tales of dysfunctional suburbanites, disgraced politicians, and down-and-out sports promoters, climaxing with a long, hilarious adventure among French filmmakers, “My Friend the Gambler,” based on his experiences making the movie Barfly. From his lowly days at the post office through his later literary fame, More follows the entire arc of Bukowski’s colorful career. Edited by Bukowski scholar David Stephen Calonne, More Notes of a Dirty Old Man features an afterword outlining the history of the column and its effect on the author’s creative development. Born in Andernach, Germany in 1920, Charles Bukowski came to California at age three and spent most of his life in Los Angeles. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994.
In this sequel to his most famous book, More Notes of a Dirty Old Man reprints rare Charles Bukowski columns unseen in decades.

Coach House Books
Ontario, Canada

There’s a laneway in downtown Toronto named after a poet: bpNichol Lane. Tucked away on that back alley is a crumbling old garage—a coach house—and inside it are two Heidelberg printing presses, an Autominabinda binder, and a big guillotine-like cutter. Passing through those machines is a gorgeous, antique-colored laid paper called Zephyr. And on that paper sits some of the most intriguing lines and sentences you’ll ever encounter. “To say that Coach House ‘publishes’ books would be to diminish the magic of what really happens within the old brick walls on bpNichol Lane,” says The Globe and Mail of our publishing program. It’s true. Our books are handsome, but they’ve got personality and wit too—they are, like our building, a little off the beaten path: innovative poetry, brazen fiction, provocative nonfiction. Every one of our books is a little portable piece of bpNichol Lane’s magic. For a taste, try out Christian Bök’s bestselling, Griffin Prize–winning Eunoia, or a New York Times’ Top 100 selection, Lisa Robertson’s Magenta Soul Whip. Or the internationally acclaimed All My Friends Are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman. Or My Winnipeg, by visionary filmmaker Guy Maddin. We’ve got a swath of award nominations to our name—Griffins, Trilliums, Commonwealths, Lambdas, and more—and a stockpile of laudatory press, like NewPages’ claim that our books offer “a reason to read. A reason to write. A reason to believe in poetry.” Heck, Bookforum called us “the most esteemed literary house in Canada.” But we don’t let it go to our heads; we, and our Heidelbergs, just keep on beavering away in our little coach house to bring you the most unexpected, delicious, carnival-ride-like books we can find.

Coach House Books Monoceros
Suzette Mayr

Praise for Suzette Mayr: “Venous Hum never fails to impress. Brash, macabre, and irreverent, it’s the kind of story you want to hear from a latter-day Scheherazade: so intoxicating you crave more.”—Vancouver Sun A seventeen-year-old boy, bullied and heartbroken, hangs himself. And although he felt terribly alone, his suicide changes everyone around him. His parents are devastated. His secret boyfriend’s girlfriend is relieved. His unicorn- and virginity-obsessed classmate Faraday is shattered; she wishes she had made friends with him that time she sold him an iced cappuccino at Tim Hortons. His English teacher, mid-divorce and mid-menopause, wishes she could remember the dead student’s name, that she could care more about her students than her ex’s new girlfriend. Who happens to be her cousin. The school guidance counselor Walter feels guilty—maybe he should have made an effort when the kid asked for help. Max, the principal, is worried about how it will reflect on the school. Walter, who’s secretly been in a relationship with Max for years, thinks that’s a little callous. He’s also tired of Max’s obsession with some sci-fi show on TV. And Max wishes Walter would lose some weight and remember to use a coaster. And then Max meets a drag queen named Crêpe Suzette. And everything changes. Suzette Mayr is the author of three previous novels: Moon Honey, The Widows, and Venous Hum. The Widows was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book in the Canada-Caribbean region, and has been translated into German. Moon Honey was shortlisted for the Georges Bugnet Award for Fiction and the Henry Kreisel Award for Best First Book. Mayr lives and works in Calgary, Alberta.

Coach House Books The Many Revenges of Kip Flynn
Sean Dixon

Praise for Sean Dixon: “Energetic. . . . Full of sound and fury.”—Kirkus Review “Reminiscent of the kind of irrepressibly mischievous and literary novels that John Barth used to write. Call it populist poindexterism.”—Quill & Quire It all started with a black rose and a rich young man. And a house with a creek running through it. And then there she was, Kip Flynn, standing beside her boyfriend’s dead body and agreeing to take a large sum of money from the young man’s father to keep quiet. As if she could have done anything else, being so scared and grief-stricken and maybe pregnant. But that’s not the end of it. You see, there’s some kind of connection between Kip and this rich developer’s son that keeps them tight in one another’s orbit. So when Kip awakens from her grief, intent on revenge, they find themselves pursuing one another with a ferocity they can barely understand, one that spirals outward, with subway accidents and arson and drainpipes and backhoe wars, to envelop roommates, two guilty fathers, a window-cleaner or two, landlords, family secrets, a Vietnamese gangster, a stand-up bass player and an activist tour guide. And concluding in the subterranean heart of Toronto itself, which, like Kip, is torn between vengefulness and growth. Sean Dixon is a novelist, playwright, and banjo player. He’s the author of the novel The Last Days of the Lacuna Cabal; two novels for young readers, The Feathered Cloak and The Winter Drey; and several plays, including those collected in AWOL: Three Plays for Theatre SKAM.
An argument over a black rose begins this mischievous novel about anarchism, fire-breathing, murder, money, backhoe wars, and family secrets.

Li’l Bastard
David McGimpsey
“McGimpsey displays erudition, clever insights and a knack for the wickedly funny wisecrack.”—The Washington Post Melding the deeply personal and the culturally popular, Li’l Bastard is confessional poetry as written by a chronic trickster and a committed liar. Written in part as an homage to John Berryman and Robert Lowell, this sequence of sixteen-line poems—“chubby sonnets”—explores the poet’s obsessions (food, aging, baseball, beer, and Barnaby Jones) and map his midlife crisis on a wild flight through Montreal, Chicago, Nashville, Texas, and Los Angeles. Poignant and often achingly funny, Li’l Bastard will cement David McGimpsey’s status as a beloved original. David McGimpsey is the author of four acclaimed collections of poetry, including Lardcake and Sitcom. He teaches at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

Coach House Books Hypotheticals
Leigh Kotsilidis

Science is a useful metaphor for understanding our lives, but it is often shown to be as fallible as the flawed humans who lean on it. This lively, thoughtful, and refreshingly speculative debut collection turns scientific method around to question science’s faith in certainty, exploring the alternate meaning of “hypothetical” as something that is merely “supposed to be true.” Under the poet’s wide-angled, open-hearted gaze, scientific investigation begins to mirror the dark art of poetry, reinforcing what we believe about ourselves one minute, then abruptly throwing everything into question. Leigh Kotsilidis lives in Montreal, Quebec, where she works as a freelance graphic designer while completing her MFA in studio arts.

Poetry and science: twin arts separated at birth? Leigh Kotsilidis' debut puts the scientific method’s feet to the fire.

Croak
Jenny Sampirisi

Croak is a frog-and-girl opera in three parts, played out like a YouTube mashup of mid-century cartoons set to a contemporary pop song. It parades, mutilates, and reacquaints Kermit the Frog with Girl 00010111, Michigan J. Frog with Aristophanes, and biblical plagues with caged canaries in a vaudevillian play of time, culture, gender, and narrative. Combining vivisection and classical literature, empirical observation and philosophical speculation, Jenny Sampirisi’s grotesque characters splash and sparkle before moving toward their inevitable narrative end. Jenny Sampirisi is the managing editor of BookThug and co-director of the Toronto New School of Writing. She is the author of the novel is/was.

A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People
Gabe Foreman
A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People is not your average reference book. It turns a series of sociological case studies into a functional encyclopedia that doubles as an achingly funny collection of poems. “Bridesmaids,” “Day Traders,” and “Number Crunchers” are all dutifully cataloged in a series of luminously strange, compellingly original lyric and prose poems.

Match
Helen Guri
Robert Brand has given up on real women. Relationships just haven’t ever worked out well for him. He has, however, found a (somewhat problematic) solution, a new feminine ideal: the 110-pound sex doll he ordered over the internet. Showing an uncanny access to the voice of the rejected, unimpressive, emotionally challenged modern male, Helen Guri’s debut collection explores Robert’s transition from lost and lonely to loved.

The Brave Never Write Poetry
Daniel Jones
First published in 1985, The Brave Never Write Poetry, the lone collection of poems by critic/novelist Daniel Jones (1959–1994), was a cult hit. Written in a direct, plainspoken, autobiographical, and at times confessional style in the tradition of Charles Bukowski and Al Purdy, these confrontational poems about sex and boredom, drugs and suicide, document Jones’ depressive, alcoholic years as an enfant terrible.

When the iconoclastic auteur of The Saddest Music in the World decided to tackle the subject of his hometown, it could only have become a “docufantasia,” a mélange of personal history, civic history, and mystical hypothesizing. This book companion includes the text of his narration wantonly annotated with an avalanche of marginal digressions, stills, outtakes, family photos, e-mails, essays, deoculations, animations, notebook pages, collages.

Coffee House Press Glass
Sam Savage

“Sam Savage has become one of America’s funniest, cleverest, and most vital writers of fiction.”—Michael Schaub, Bookslut Tasked with writing a preface to a reissue of her late husband’s long-out-ofprint novel, Edna is unexpectedly asked to take care of a vacationing neighbor’s pet rat, fish, and potted plants. Sitting at her typewriter day after day, Edna becomes lost in a Proustian marathon of introspection, mixing philosophical reflection and humor with minute accounts of her daily life. What unfolds, as if by accident, is the story of a marriage and a portrait of a mind pushed to its limits by the emptiness of the hours and the pain of memory. The reader is never certain if Edna’s preface is an homage to her late husband or an act of belated revenge. Is she the cultured victim of a crass and brutally ambitious husband, or is Edna neurotic and delusional? The unforgettable characters in Sam Savage’s two previous hit novels Firmin and The Cry of the Sloth garnered worldwide critical acclaim. In Edna, once again Savage has created a character marked by contradiction—simultaneously appealing and exasperating, comical and tragic. Sam Savage is the best-selling author of Firmin: Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife and The Cry of the Sloth. A finalist for the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Award, Savage holds a PhD in philosophy from Yale University and resides in Madison, Wisconsin.
From the best-selling, award-winning author of Firmin— a widow tells her side of the story.

Coffee House Press Leaving the Atocha Station
Ben Lerner

Adam Gordon is a brilliant, if highly unreliable, young American poet on a prestigious fellowship in Madrid, struggling to establish his sense of self and his relationship to art. Instead of following the dictates of his fellowship, Adam’s “research” becomes a meditation on the possibility of the genuine in the arts and beyond: are his relationships with the people he meets in Spain as fraudulent as he fears his poems are? Is poetry an essential art form, or is it merely a projection of our desired interpretations? A witness to the 2004 Madrid train bombings and their aftermath, does he participate in historic events or merely watch them pass him by? In prose that veers between the comic and tragic, the self-contemptuous and the inspired, Leaving the Atocha Station is a portrait of the artist as a young man in an age of Google searches, pharmaceuticals, and spectacle. Born in Topeka, Kansas, in 1979, Ben Lerner holds a BA in political science and an MFA in creative writing from Brown University and teaches at Brooklyn College. The author of three books of poetry, The Lichtenberg Figures, Angle of Yaw, and Mean Free Path, Lerner has been a finalist for the National Book Award and the Northern California Book Award and was a Fulbright Scholar in Spain. Leaving the Atocha Station is his first novel.
From a National Book Award finalist, this hilarious and profound first novel captures the experience of the young American abroad.

Coffee House Press Sleight
Kirsten Kaschock

Sisters Lark and Clef have spent their lives honing their bodies for sleight, an interdisciplinary art form that combines elements of dance, architecture, acrobatics, and spoken word. After being estranged for several years, the sisters are reunited by a deceptive and ambitious sleight troupe director named West who needs the sisters’ opposing approaches to the form—Lark is tormented and fragile, but a prodigy; Clef is driven to excel, but lacks the spark of artistic genius. When a disturbing mass murder makes national headlines, West seizes on the event as inspiration for his new performance, one that threatens to destroy the very artists performing it. In language that is at once unsettling and hypnotic, Sleight explores ideas of performance, gender, and family to ask the question: what is the role of art in the face of unthinkable tragedy? Kirsten Kaschock has earned degrees from Yale University, the University of Iowa, Syracuse University, and the University of Georgia. The author of two collections of poetry, Unfathoms and A Beautiful Name for a Girl, she resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she is currently a doctoral fellow in dance at Temple University.

Coffee House Press Errançities
Quincy Troupe

“Troupe is an innovator of form and tone who shifts quickly from a lofty, elegiac mode into burlesque or smoky, jazzed-down pop phraseology.”—Publishers Weekly “Troupe’s poems are exuberant and passionate outpourings with driving, syncopated rhythms and improvisatory riffs of colorful language.”—Star Tribune Coined with the French word errance (to wander) in mind, these poems rove from ancient Yoruba to the streets of Harlem to the tropical heat of Guadeloupe and emerge with a new vocabulary for the transformations of the physical, philosophical, and musical worlds. Known for his long, lyrical narrative poems and invocation of the oral tradition, Quincy Troupe captures the histories and deaths of Michael Jackson and Miles Davis, celebrating both their accomplishments and contradictions. This collection embraces the improvisation of a soul as it offers a paean to the possibilities of poetry. The author of eight volumes of poetry, Quincy Troupe has also collaborated with Chris Gardner on The Pursuit of Happyness, which was made into a major motion picture, and with Miles Davis on Miles: The Autobiography. His friendship with Miles Davis is chronicled in Miles and Me. Troupe has also recently published children’s books on Magic Johnson and Stevie Wonder. He divides his time between New York and a countryside village in Guadeloupe.

Contrasto DIES IRAE
Photographs by Paolo Pellegrin
Contribution by Roberto Koch

Throughout his career, Paolo Pellegrin received innumerable international prizes and awards that are indicative of how the strength and intelligence of his works can live through time as parts of a greater, coherent, and universal picture. Pellegrin represents a new generation of photographers aware of the modern means of production and distribution of images at their disposal. They offer a new way to look at the facts they document, always maintaining their ethics in the form and methods of their job. Pellegrin always uses a metaphor to speak about his job: photography to him is like a language we wish to learn; an unfamiliar language, perhaps of an unknown stock, whose mystery fascinates and draws us towards it. Little by little the mystery reveals its features, allowing those who work with it (the photographers) to use it as a prop to tell stories. Pellegrin has narrated many of them. At times these stories were harsh, even tragic, and spoke of war, detention, and natural disasters. He approached each and every one of them without judging, following with his eyes what was happening around him in order to interpret it in the light of his extensive experience as a journalist.
Paolo Pellegrin is one of the most renowned contemporary photoreporters, awarded with a Robert Capa Gold Medal, W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography, and Leica Medal of Excellence.

Copper Canyon Press Songs of Unreason
Jim Harrison
“His poems succeed on the basis of an open heart and a still-ravenous appetite for life.”—The Texas Observer “The great American writer is at it again, his voice as clear, bighearted, and caustic as ever.”—Star Tribune Jim Harrison’s compelling and provocative Songs of Unreason explores what it means to inhabit the world in atavistic, primitive, and totemistic ways. “This can be disturbing to the learned,” Harrison admits. Using interconnected suites, brief lyrics, and rollicking narratives, Harrison’s passions and concerns—creeks, thickets, time’s effervescence, familial love—emerge by turns painful and celebratory, localized and exiled. From “Broom”: To remember that you’re alive visit the cemetery of your father at noon after you’ve made love and are still wrapped in a mammalian odor that you are forced to cherish. Under each stone is someone’s inevitable surprise, the unexpected death of their biology that struggled hard as it must. Now go home without looking back at the fading cemetery, enough is enough, but stop on the way to buy the best wine you can afford and a dozen stiff brooms. Have a few swallows then throw the furniture out the window and begin sweeping . . . Jim Harrison, one of America’s most versatile and celebrated writers, is the author of over thirty books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction—including Legends of the Fall, Dalva, and The Shape of the Journey.
One of America’s leading novelists and poets, “Jim Harrison is a writer with immortality in him.”—The Sunday Times

Copper Canyon Press Last Poems
Hayden Carruth
Introduction by Stephen Dobyns
“Something Hayden Carruth does as well as any writer is to treat the reader as a friend, and to provide, through his poetry, hours of good company.” —The New York Times Book Review “One of the lasting literary signatures of our time.”—Library Journal, starred review “Carruth, like Whitman, like Chaucer, is large—he contains multitudes. Dip into his work anywhere, and there is life—and death—as stirringly felt and cogitated as in some vast, Tolstoyan novel.”—Booklist, starred review Hayden Carruth’s Last Poems is a triumph—a morally engaged, tender, and fearless volume that combines the last poems of his life with the concluding poems from each of his previous volumes. Introduced by Stephen Dobyns, Last Poems is a moving tribute to a towering and beloved figure in American poetry. From “Father’s Day”: I don’t know what fathers are Supposed to do, although the calendar says This is “Father’s Day.” But the day is gloomy And not at all conducive to visiting or Celebrating. I know the best thing fathers in Their prime can do is to make daughters and More daughters; we can never have enough. Daughters are our best protection against Loneliness and the absurd atrocities of Foreign policy . . . Hayden Carruth (1921–2008) lived for many years in northern Vermont, then moved to upstate New York, where he taught at Syracuse University. He won the National Book Award for Scrambled Eggs & Whiskey, and his Collected Shorter Poems received the National Book Critics Circle Award.
The last poems ever written by a towering and beloved figure in American poetry with an introduction by Stephen Dobyns.

Honored in “Best Books of the Year” listings from The New Yorker, National Public Radio, Library Journal, and The Huffington Post. “One With Others represents Wright’s most audacious experiment yet.”—The New Yorker “[A] book . . . that defies description and discovers a powerful mode of its own.”—National Public Radio “[A] searing dissection of hate crimes and their malignant legacy.”—Booklist Today, Gentle Reader, the sermon once again: “Segregation After Death.” Showers in the a.m. The threat they say is moving from the east. The sheriff’s club says Not now. Not nokindofhow. Not never. The children’s minds say Never waver. Air fanned by a flock of hands in the old funeral home where the meetings were called [because Mrs. Oliver owned it free and clear], and that selfsame air, sanctified and doomed, rent with racism, and it percolates up from the soil itself . . . C.D. Wright returns to her native Arkansas and examines explosive incidents grounded in the Civil Rights Movement. In her signature style, Wright interweaves oral histories, hymns, lists, interviews, newspaper accounts, and personal memories—especially those of her incandescent mentor, Mrs. Vittitow—with the voices of witnesses, neighbors, police, and activists. This history leaps howling off the page. C.D. Wright has published over a dozen works of poetry and prose. Among her honors are the Griffin Poetry Prize and a MacArthur Fellowship. She teaches at Brown University and lives outside of Providence, Rhode Island.
A National Book Award finalist and National Book Critics Circle Award winner.

Copper Canyon Press Guide to Capturing a Plum Blossom
Sung Po-jen
Introduction by Lo Ch’ing Translated by Red Pine
“It is one of the very first art books which helped artists develop the aptitude for seeing the inner essence of various natural phenomena.”—Shambhala Sun “Red Pine introduces Western readers to both the text itself and the traditions it has inherited.”—Virginia Quarterly Review Through a series of brief four-lined poems and illustrations, Sung Po-jen aims at training artistic perception: how to truly see a plum blossom.

China is home to both the Siberian and the South China tigers. While both are on the verge of extinction, the small South China tiger still appears as far north as the Chungnan Mountains, where hermits have shown me their tracks.” Sung Po-jen was a Chinese poet of the thirteenth century. Red Pine (a.k.a. Bill Porter) is one of the world’s foremost translators of Chinese poetry and religious texts. His published translations include The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain, Lao-tzu’s Taoteching, and Poems of the Masters. He lives near Seattle, Washington.

Copper Canyon Press Collected Body
Valzhyna Mort
“Mort is a fireball. . . . Personal, political, and passionate, Mort’s poetry will surely sustain many reading audiences. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal “A one-of-a-kind work of passion and insight.”—Midwest Book Review “Mort’s style—tough and terse almost to the point of aphorism—recalls the great Polish poets Czesław Miłosz and Wisława Szymborska.”—Los Angeles Times Valzhyna Mort is a dynamic Belarusian poet, and Collected Body is her first collection composed in English. Whether writing about sex, relatives, violence, or fish markets as opera, Mort insists on vibrant, dark truths. “Preface” on a bare tree— a red beast, so still, it has become the tree. now it’s the tree that prowls over the beast, a cautious beast itself. a stone thrown at its breast is so fast—the stone has become the beast. now it’s the beast that throws itself like a stone, blood like a dog—rose tree on a windy day, and the moon is trying on your face for the annual masquerade of the dead. Valzhyna Mort was born in Minsk, Belarus. Her American debut, Factory of Tears, was featured on the cover of Poets & Writers. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
This charismatic Belarusian poet is considered “one of the best young poets in the world today” (World Literature Today).

Copper Canyon Press Nitro Nights
W.S. Di Piero

“With language that’s as simple as it is musical, Di Piero sets dazzling moments amid plainsong.”—The New York Times Book Review “Di Piero’s poems throb with the intensity of urban life, buried anger, and old griefs that still ache.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Di Piero hopes to evoke something of the true mystery of present and recalled experience, and his poems powerfully enact this desire.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer W.S. Di Piero marries a streetwise, working-class sensibility to an intellectual rigor and precise language in poems that stare down depression, failed love, and urban nightlife. In a fast-paced, half-cracked/half-sane style reminiscent of bebop solos, Di Piero forges masterful poems that “keep it close, loose, and sweaty,” and restore life’s intensity while showing where real hope might be found. From “Only in Things”: Some days, who can stare at swathes of sky, leafage and bad-complected whale-gray streets, tailpipes and smokestacks orating sepia exhaust, or the smaller enthusiasms of pistil and mailbox key, and not weep for the world’s darks on lights, lights on darks, how its half-tones stay unchanged in their changings, or how turning wheels and wind-trash and revolving doors weave us into wakefulness or dump us into distraction? W.S. Di Piero was born in south Philadelphia and grew up in an Italian working-class neighborhood. He received a master’s degree from San Francisco State University. His honors include a Guggenheim fellowship and the Raiziss/ de Palchi Book Prize for Italian translation. He teaches at Stanford University and lives in San Francisco, California.
Nitro Nights is a Book of Fortune about sexual love, dying, city scruff, racial unease, and American conscience.

Copper Canyon Press We Almost Disappear
David Bottoms
“David Bottoms’s poems just get better and better.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Evocative images, searching irony, and meditative poise.” —Library Journal Rooted in the customs of Southern families and peopled with undertakers, bluegrass musicians, daughters practicing karate, and elderly parents, David Bottoms’ poems are generous, insightful, and lean headlong into familial wisdom. Past and present interweave with grandmothers spitting tobacco juice, ponds “filled with construction runoff,” and the boyhood home-site paved over for a KFC. This is Bottoms’ most personal and heartbreaking book. From “My Daughter Works the Heavy Bag”: A bow to the instructor, then fighting stance, and the only girl in karate class faces the heavy bag. Small for fifth grade—willow-like, says her mother— sweaty hair tangled like blown willow branches. The boys try to ignore her. They fidget against the wall, smirk, practice their routine of huff and feint. Circle, barks the instructor, jab, circle, kick, and the black bag wobbles on its chain. Again and again, the bony jewels of her fist jab out in glistening precision, her flawless legs remember arabesque and glissade. Kick, jab, kick, and the bag coughs rhythmically from its gut. The boys fidget and wait . . . David Bottom, Georgia’s Poet Laureate, was inducted into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame in 2009. He teaches at Georgia State University and coedits Five Points magazine. He lives in Marietta, Georgia.
Boyhood memories intermingle with the present as the poet’s young daughter practices karate and his ailing father prepares to die.

Copper Canyon Press The Book of Hours
Marianne Boruch

“Marianne Boruch’s work has the wonderful, commanding power of true attention.”—The Washington Post “[H]er patience, her willingness to wait for the film of familiarity to slip, allows her to see what is there with a jeweler’s sense of facet and flaw.” —Poetry magazine Endearingly strange, unsentimental, and uniquely structured, in true Rilkean fashion The Book of Hours questions the meaning and significance of everything from the flaws of human interaction to perfect posture. Unrelenting honesty and exacting description are coupled with the trials of a dying mother, saint shadows, birds, and “shit drying to chalk.” My mother’s body to wires, to tubes and their liquid, days she turned toward me or away, winter but so much sun from car to door. I followed it past nurses at their station talking movies, who’s good in one and not the other. Gown tied at the back and neck, she slept beside a window. I wedged my chair there, reading, looking up, reading—who knows what I read—her legs bruised, thin, arms battered by the doctor’s needle. Her face. Can I say this plainly now? There was light as she grew less. She drifted to it. I’m not hungry, not religious, I’m in a spot, she told me one afternoon then closed her eyes to that radiance again. Marianne Boruch grew up in Chicago and earned a masters degree from the University of Massachusetts. She teaches at Purdue University and at Warren Wilson College. She lives in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Copper Canyon Press Happy Life
David Budbill
“Budbill . . . is, in short, a delight and a comfort.”—Wendell Berry “[Budbill] can be hilarious, as when he gripes, ‘What good is my humility / when I am / stuck / in this obscurity?’”—Booklist, starred review David Budbill continues his popular poetic ruminations on life in remote New England—an outward survey of a forested mountain and an introspection of self-reliance, anonymity, and the creative life. Inspired by classical Chinese and Japanese poets, Budbill contemplates the seasons, ambition, his questionable desire for fame and fortune, and simple, focused contentment: “Weed the beans. Pick the peas.” “Out in the Woods” The only time I’m really free is when I’m out in the woods cutting firewood, stacking brush, clearing trails. Just the chain saw, the dog and me. Heave and groan, sweat and ache. Work until I can’t stand it anymore. Take a break. Sit on the needle-strewn ground up against a big pine tree, drink some water, stare out through the woods, pet the dog. Stretch out on the ground, take a nap, dog’s head on my lap. Ah, this would be the time and place and way to die. David Budbill is the author of many books and served as a commentator on NPR’s All Things Considered. He lives in the mountains of northern Vermont where he tends his garden and website.
A favorite of Garrison Keillor, David Budbill continues his popular ruminations on a “chop wood, carry water” life in Vermont.

Copper Canyon Press Nine Acres
Nathaniel Perry
Introduction by Marie Howe
Selected by Marie Howe from over one thousand submissions, Nine Acres is the winner of the American Poetry Review/APR Honickman First Book Prize. Taking their titles from chapters of a 1930s small-scale farming handbook, the fiftytwo poems in this cycle create a handbook for living and explore sustainability on many levels—on the land, in the family, and in the spirit. As Marie Howe writes in her introduction to the book, “Nathanial Perry has collected poems into this book as one plants a field, as an act of husbandry: each line a furrow where seeds flourish or fail. Husbandry—to create a dwelling place and to care for it—these are the ancient acts.” “Soil Surface Management” I spent the afternoon breaking ground. The tiller bucked and groaned at the job, but with each pass I saw a perfect blankness, like I’d been loaned a second life in which to grow a third. The sun sat on its porch and smiled. I wondered if the dirt would be enough, a kind of torch to set inside our lives to say, we’ll grow our food like this, our plans will look like this —like soil squared and measured into beds by a man sweating through his shirt with effort. In dirt is one life we can choose to make. I spent the afternoon breaking what I knew we’d use. Nathaniel Perry lives with his family in rural southside Virginia. He is the editor of the Hampden-Sydney Poetry Review and teaches at Hampden-Sydney College.
Winner of the 2011 American Poetry Review/ APR Honickman First Book Prize.

Work, Play and Conflict In the Third World

Photographs and essays by Ben Barber
Introduction by Andrew Natsios
Ben Barber visited the third world after college, in the late 1960s and 1970s, as a poet and a traveler from Morocco to India. He studied journalism and returned to the third world in 1980 as a reporter and photographer for The Observer, USA Today, and other papers. Editors pushed him to report on war, disease, conflict, hunger, refugees, and endless tragedy. But he found another side: decent, hard-working, loving, and generous people from Marrakesh to Cairo to Jerusalem to Teheran to Kabul and beyond. This book captures, through Barber’s photos and short stories, the deeper streams of life flowing in countries where the future of our planet is being written. All who seek to avoid future conflicts and to understand these countries will enjoy this book. Ben Barber has been a foreign correspondent for twenty-three years. His articles and photos have appeared in The Christian Science Monitor, The Observer, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, Foreign Affairs, The Atlantic, Salon.com, and other publications. From 1994 to 2002 he was State Department bureau chief for The Washington Times. From 2002 to 2010 he was senior writer for the US Agency for International Development where he was editor in chief of the USAID newspaper FrontLines. He is currently a consultant on international development communications and a columnist for McClatchy newspapers.

Half Life
Michael Ackerman
Introduction by Denis Kambouchner
According to Denis Kambouchner’s introduction, Half Life is a haunted book. It is certainly disturbing; in Michael Ackerman’s world, something is disintegrating. The landscapes are harsh and unwelcoming, but it is the anguish of individuals that stirs us most deeply—their expressions of distress and confusion, their unfinished gestures, the sense of damage. These are people who appear to live in the ruins of a drama. It is as if their whole bodies were given over to a scream. Michael Ackerman is a member of the prestigious Agence VU’ Galerie, has been exhibited worldwide, and has won several international awards. He lives in Berlin, Germany.

Edgar Martins

Edgar Martins was initially commissioned by The New York Times to photograph the fallout from the US subprime mortgage crisis. Extending the project, he photographed across the United States in eight separate states and across sixteen different locations. These carefully researched sites exposed the extent and impact of the crisis on the US construction industry. Approaching the project as a photographic intervention into a crisis, the resulting images go beyond pure formal investigation or documentation. His interest is in summoning a disquieting conjunction of realism and fiction—“cutting in to the real.”

Dialogue America and the Imperialism of Ignorance
How America Won the War and Lost the Peace— US Foreign Policy Since 1945

Andrew Alexander
A scathing analysis of six decades of American foreign policy drawing on new archive material and research, America and the Imperialism of Ignorance offers a unique perspective on the recent wars in Iraq and Afganistan. Journalist and historian Andrew Alexander demonstrates how America’s war-like reaction to global events since the end of World War II have been knee-jerk, unnecessary, and largely counterproductive. He argues that the entire Cold War was a red herring—the United States and her puppet states setting out to counter a Russian expansionism that never truly existed. Using newly translated Russian archive documents and material from the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, Alexander dissects this “shoot first” tendency in American foreign policy through US involvement and intervention in wars throughout the second part of the twentieth century and up to the present day situation in Iraq and Afghanistan. He argues that American attitudes have proved wretchedly consistent since 1945. War is no longer the last resort of diplomacy but an early option. Nothing has been learnt from Vietnam with all its parallels with Afghanistan. Andrew Alexander is a senior journalist for the UK Daily Mail.

Dialogue Smersh
Stalin’s Secret Weapon

Vadim J. Birstein, PhD

HISTORY December 5⅛ x 7 | 400 pp Trade Cloth US $24.95 | CAN $29.00 978-1-84954-108-4 USC

In the early James Bond novels 007 is pitched against Smersh, a top secret Soviet agency dedicated to the subversion of the West and the assassination of Western spies. Bond’s creator Ian Fleming took his inspiration from life, but the real Smersh was far more savage than Bond’s fictional nemesis. An abbreviation for the Russian words “Death to spies,” Smersh was the Soviet counterintelligence organization dedicated to the elimination of anticommunist activity during World War II. Smersh was Stalin’s wartime terror apparatus—a collection of torturers and killers unleashed with brutal affect in 1943 to cut a bloody swath of death across Eastern Europe. Its job was to “filter” the Red Army for spies. It was responsible for the arrest, torture, and execution of many thousands of innocent servicemen and citizens of countries occupied by the Red Army. Among its victims was Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish businessman who saved as many as 100,000 Jews from the Holocaust. Vadim J. Birstein reveals new evidence suggesting Wallenberg was shot as a spy in 1947. Despite its significant role during and after the war (it was charged with finding Hitler and did so), Smersh is almost unknown outside Russia. Partly because its savagery casts a shadow even today, partly because of the complete secrecy that surrounded its existence. In Smersh: Stalin’s Secret Weapon, Birstein makes comprehensive use of recently released Russian military archives in Moscow and speaks to survivors and victims of Smersh to tell, for the first time, one of the darkest stories in Soviet Russia’s history. Vadim J. Birstein, PhD, is a historian, human rights activist, and molecular geneticist. He is the author of The Perversion of Knowledge: The True History of Soviet Science.
This book chronicles the activities of Soviet military counterintelligence just before and during World War II.

Dialogue Snow
The Astonishing Story of the First Double Cross Agent

Nigel West and Madoc Roberts
Arthur Owens, codename Snow, was the first double agent, working for the German Abwehr and passing information back to the British. Nervous and highly-strung but supremely cool, Snow managed to maintain the trust of the Germans throughout the war—even blowing the entire German sabotage budget on a fur coat for a mistress. Snow is a story of double-crosses, betrayal, and loyalty in the most extreme situations. It is a tale of the conspicuous courage of a mysterious man. Nigel West is an author specializing in security, intelligence, the secret service, and espionage. Madoc Roberts is a director, producer, and film editor.

Operation Garbo
The Personal Story of the Most Successful Spy of World War II

Juan Pujol Garcia and Nigel West
Juan Pujol Garcia, better known as Garbo, was perhaps the most influential spy of the Second World War.

Dialogue Franco’s Friends
How MI6 Helped the Fascists Win Power in Spain

Peter Day
Franco’s Friends is the untold tale of MI6’s involvement in the rise of Spanish fascism. It is known that a British plane took Francisco Franco from the Canaries to Morocco at the start of the coup. What is not known is that the plane was chartered by an MI6 agent and that British secret services continued working behind the scenes in Spain through to World War II to ensure British interests were maintained. Crucially, MI6 paid bribes to Spanish generals to keep Spain neutral, thus reaping the benefits for Britain from 1939–45. Franco’s Friends reveals how Britain made a dubious moral choice that would have repercussions on the outcome of the Second World War.

Account Rendered
Extraordinary Rendition and Britain’s Role

Roger Gough, Stuart McCracken, and Andrew Tyrie, MP
In the struggle against terrorism post 9/11, the United States developed rendition as an instrument of policy. Rendition became associated with the use of coercive interrogation techniques that often crossed the threshold of torture, in violation of international standards to which successive American administrations committed themselves. To a degree yet to be fully established, Britain was implicated in that policy. Account Rendered is an analysis of the facts and history of rendition intended to get to the truth and to ensure that the United Kingdom will not be involved in extraordinary rendition in the future. Roger Gough, Stuart McCracken, and Andrew Tyrie are British politicians with inside access to documents pertaining to the role of the United Kingdom and United States in carrying out extraordinary rendition.

Dialogue The Secrets of Station X
The Fight to Break the Enigma Cypher

Michael Smith
When the British military commandeered Bletchley Park in 1939 no one would have guessed that by 1945 its inmates would have contributed decisively to the Allied war effort. A melting pot of Oxbridge dons and maverick oddballs worked night and day at Station X to decode the Enigma cypher used by the Germans for highlevel communications. That they succeeded, changing the course of the war, is testament to an indomitable spirit that wrenched British intelligence into the modern age, as World War II segued into the Cold War.

The Disinformation Company 50 Things You’re Not Supposed To Know: Religion
Daniele Bolelli
If you’re waiting for the world’s “Holy Men” to tell you the truth about their religions, do you suppose they’ll mention that: • The Tao Te Ching was only created because Lao Tzu was thrown in jail by a disciple who didn’t want to let him leave town without writing down his teachings? • “Passover” celebrates God killing all firstborn Egyptian kids while Jewish homes were “passed over” by the angel of death? • Shinto, a nature-loving, mellow religion, was transformed by the Japanese government into a nationalistic ideology promoting “holy” war? Adding to its popular 50 Things You’re Not Supposed To Know series, Disinformation has teamed with Daniele Bolelli—writer, professor of comparative religion, and renowned martial arts practitioner and philosopher— to tackle an ever more serious and important topic: popular misconceptions about religion. Among other revelations: • Carpocrates, an early Christian, argued that sex orgies were a key to heaven. • Prostitution was a religious duty in Mesopotamian temples. • The two major Chinese religions (Taoism and Confucianism) are completely at odds with each other and yet are often practiced together. • Despite having persecuted Jews for 2,000 years, Christian fundamentalists are Israel’s biggest supporters. Capturing just the right balance of in-depth knowledge, respect, humor and irreverence, Bolelli takes an ecumenical approach to the task, revealing surprising, shocking, and little-known facts about the “big three” religions but also many more, including Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, and, of course, the increasingly popular non-religion: atheism.
Everything that holy men of all stripes don’t want you to know about religions major and minor.

The Disinformation Company The Georgia Guidestones
America’s Most Mysterious Monument

Raymond Wiley and KT Prime

The Georgia Guidestones are a collection of standing stones near Elberton, Georgia. Built in 1980, they are primarily composed of six slabs of granite: one central pillar, four “major” stones that fan out from the center, and a capstone. The capstone has engravings on all four of its sides in four different ancient languages, all of which read, “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason,” when translated. The major stones are each engraved on both sides, and each side contains text in one of eight modern languages asserting the same ten guidelines. Those guidelines have proven extremely controversial, causing speculation and rumors of conspiracy that go far beyond northeast Georgia. Conspiracy theorists surmise a global plot on the part of a group of shadowy men to subjugate and oppress the world’s population and create a “new world order.” Others believe that the man behind the monument was a Rosicrucian, and that the stones are representative of that group’s magical manifesto. Some people even believe that it is a landing site for an alien spacecraft of some kind. At the heart of this confusion is the missing piece of the puzzle: who was the mystery man who started the entire chain of events?

Sarah Falkner

“Animal Sanctuary is an intensely focused, ambitious work with a wonderfully insistent sense of obsession. The novel brings together weirdly disparate elements in the same surprising way that life does. Returning continuously and seemingly helplessly to animals as a point of reference, Animal Sanctuary suggests that obsession may be the only way of pinning down the truth. This is a rich, interesting, multidimensional book that knows fragility and maps it.” —Stacy Levine, judge of the Starcherone Fiction Prize

Enigma Books Stalin’s Man in Canada
Fred Rose and Soviet Espionage

David Levy

The key role played by Canadian Communist Fred Rose in atomic espionage is explained here for the first time. Born in Lublin, Poland, in 1907, he came to Montreal with his parents, joined the Young Communist League, and was elected National Secretary in 1929. A secret member of Gaik Ovakimyan’s North American NKVD network, he worked with Jacob Golos, Elizabeth Bentley’s employer, in securing Canadian passports for Soviet agents. In 1943 Rose was elected to the federal Canadian parliament from a working class district in Montreal. In September 1945, Soviet embassy clerk Igor Gouzenko defected with documents that revealed an elaborate espionage operation to acquire American atomic research. Fred Rose was a major player in the scheme. Rose was found guilty of conspiring to turn over information about the explosive RDX to the Soviets and was sentenced to a six-year prison term. He returned to his native Poland in 1953 and died in Warsaw in 1983, a disillusioned witness to the collapse of the Leninist vision he’d lived by. David Levy is a film historian and producer.

Enigma Books Hunting Down the Jews
Vichy, the Nazis and Mafia Collaborators in Provence, 1942–1944

Isaac Levendel and Bernard Weisz
Introduction by Serge Klarsfeld
Sarah Lewendel, a Jewish woman originally from Poland, disappeared in the vortex of the Nazi extermination machine on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Her son has lived with this tragedy for over sixty-five years and has carefully reconstructed the history of the Holocaust in Provence, the Vaucluse, and its main city, Avignon. Germany invaded southern France in November 1942 and the German police made abundant use of freelance Jew hunters, who eagerly seized the opportunity. The details of Nazi and Vichy anti-Semitic policy and the mechanisms of collaboration with its Mafia component have never been analyzed with such accuracy. Isaac Levendel holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Southern California and is the author of the memoir Not the Germans Alone, published in 2002. Bernard Weisz is a journalist and researcher.

Mussolini Warlord
Failed Dreams of Empire, 1940–1943

H. James Burgwyn
Fascist Italy has received far too little attention in the military history of the Axis partnership. This is the first comprehensive study of Benito Mussolini’s military efforts to build an empire during World War II. It details the fascist dictator’s attempt to build both a Mediterranean empire and Balkan empire, as well as a narrative history of his tragically flawed illusions; Italy’s disastrous military performance; the heroism of Italian soldiers, sailors, and airmen; and the brutal counterinsurgency programs. Italy’s various war theaters are discussed singly, with major battles outlined, military aptitude and results judged, and relations with the Axis partner described. Fascist ideology and the Italian army’s conduct in the occupied territories— France, Yugoslavia, Albania, Greece, Russia, East Africa, and North Africa— are also analyzed. Mussolini was the single individual most responsible for Italy’s failure during World War II. H. James Burgwyn is professor emeritus of history at Westchester University and the author of important works on modern Italian history.

Murder in Berlin—1949

Horst Bosetzky
Translated by Catherine Dop Miller
Two people disappear in the ruins of the former German capital and body parts suddenly surface in both the eastern and western half of the city. An invisible curtain divides the ruins. Competing administrations struggle with mounting ferocity. The ruined buildings and devastated landscape provide a perfect backdrop to more violence and cruel brutality. Based on true facts and extensive sociological research, Cold Angel is a chilling tale. Amid this chaotic landscape, can perpetrators be found, let alone brought to justice? In 1944 Berlin is a city divided by rubble.

Alphabet of Masks
Dmitri Birman
Translated by Antonia W. Bouis and Bela Shayevich
Alphabet of Masks is a collection of short stories and poems written on a mobile phone. It is an imaginative foray into the modern-day Russian experience. Dmitri Birman shows us how today’s Russians straddle their Soviet past and their capitalist future in order to survive. The stories are wry, humorous, and sexually frank; the poems lyrical and elegiac about the narrator and his friends. The anti-Semitic reality of school bullies and army conscription, the adolescent yearning for classmates and teaching assistants, the Soviet dream of world travel and luxury consumption— all are part of the book, while the poetry resonates as variations on a theme.

Etruscan Press Body of a Dancer
Renée E. D’Aoust

“Renée D’Aoust’s writing is sharp and funny, twisting and turning through the mind’s eye like the many dancers she so adroitly conjures. Her sentences thrum with life, propelled by felicities of tone, rhythm, and pacing. The woman throws a mean sucker punch.”—Claudia La Rocco, dance critic “A remarkably clear-eyed descent into New York’s surreal world of modern dance peopled by the obsessed, dispossessed, sexy, suicidal, brutal, broke, and absurd.”—Lance Olsen, author of Nietzsche’s Kisses The award-winning writer Renée E. D’Aoust draws from her experiences as a modern dancer in New York during the nineties. Her luminous prose spotlights this passionate, often brutal world. Trained at the prestigious Martha Graham Center, D’Aoust intertwines accounts of her own and other dancers’ lives with essays on modern dance history. A dancer’s body, scarred, strained, and tough, bears witness to the discipline demanded by the art form. Body of a Dancer provides a powerful, acidly comic record of what it is to love, and eventually leave, a life centered on dance. Renée E. D’Aoust’s essays have been featured as notable essays in Best American Essays in 2006, 2007, and 2009. Her nonfiction work has been included in the anthology Reading Dance, edited by Robert Gottlieb and nominated for the Pushcart Prize. D’Aoust is the recipient of an NEA’s Dance Criticism fellowship and grants from The Puffin Foundation and the Idaho Commission on the Arts.

Exterminating Angel Press This is US
The New All-American Family

David Marin

It was no mystery why California had 98,000 children stuck in foster care. There were not 98,003 because I was stubborn. When David Marin fell in love with three children desperately in need of a home, there was only one thing he could do. Give up the life of a single guy and learn about parenting—from how to carve a Halloween pumpkin to what makes up a Happy Meal. In the process, he found the future he had always wanted, but he also learned some hard lessons about single-parent adoption, the Kafkaesque side of Social Services, and America’s anti-immigrant sentiment: “All facts aside, I wanted to help my children see through the darkness, past their past. I’d give them a chance to rebound, like me. After all, it’s never too late to have a happy childhood.” His journey, and the deeply moving story behind the children’s lives, illustrates that even if society isn’t colorblind, love can be. It also proves that fathers love their children as much as mothers do and that families like his— happy, secure, and multi-ethnic—represent our single greatest hope. David Marin (pronounced “marine”) is half Puerto Rican, half Irish, and all American. A media company executive by profession, he has traveled to eleven countries and visited thirty-six of our fifty states. He has skydived in Arizona, water-skied on the Caribbean, and rescued olive ridley sea turtles in Costa Rica. By far the greatest adventure of his life is fatherhood.
The heartbreaking, hilarious, and inspiring story of one man’s quest to create a better life for three abandoned children—and himself.

The Feminist Press at CUNY Intimate Wars
The Life and Times of the Woman Who Brought Abortion from the Back Alley to the Boardroom

Merle Hoffman
Merle Hoffman’s life story is riveting. A former classical pianist, a self-made millionaire, and a feminist who found her life’s work providing abortions, she has been a fearless crusader for women’s right to choose. Over the years, Hoffman has used her entrepreneurial spirit to build one of the most comprehensive women’s medical centers in the country. In 1971 (two years before the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion nationally), Hoffman founded Choices, an abortion clinic in New York. As a medical provider, she pioneered “patient power,” encouraging women to participate in their own health care decisions. And going against even her own expectations for her life after fifty, she adopted a child and writes about her experience as a mother. Whether addressing the murder of abortion providers like Dr. George Tiller or challenging women to understand their own power over their bodies and the language used to wield such power, Merle Hoffman has been on the front lines of the feminist movement, a fierce warrior in the battle for choice. Merle Hoffman is an award-winning journalist, activist, and women’s health care pioneer. In 1971, she founded Choices, one of the first ambulatory abortion centers, which has become one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive women’s medical facilities in the United States. She is also the publisher of On the Issues, an online feminist magazine.
A powerful account of the woman who made abortion her business.

Diane Fresquez

Is there a gender difference between women and men when it comes to bad smells? It turns out there is. And what happens when you secretly experiment on a group of scientists during a dinner eaten completely in the dark? Read and find out. A food writer for the The Wall Street Journal, Diane Fresquez spent a year on the trail of obsessive scientists and entrepreneurs who are trying to titillate our taste buds. In this lively sprint through foods and flavors, she explores the passionate young people working to uncover the truths about taste, including a brewery owner/scientist who’s developed a banana-flavored beer meant to appeal to young women, and another who won’t rest until he develops the perfect mead, the ancient liquor that has been called the ancestor of all fermented drinks. In between we meet a young mother and PhD student whose research shows that what a mother eats can influence the flavor of her breast milk, and possibly aid weaning; and a scientist in the Netherlands who does research on flavor and memory at an Orwellian university lab called the Restaurant of the Future.

My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels

Justin Vivian Bond
Preface by Hilton Als
“Bond’s fabulosity is matched by a trenchant wit, and [V’s] over-the-top stories are smartly edged with politics, sexual or otherwise.”—The New York Times Hailed as “the greatest cabaret artist of [V’s] generation” in The New Yorker, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond makes a brilliant literary debut with this candid and hilarious novella-length memoir. With a recent diagnosis of attention deficit disorder, and news that Bond’s first lover from childhood has been imprisoned for impersonating an undercover police officer, Bond recalls in vivid detail coming of age as a trans kid. Always haunted by the knowledge of being “different,” Bond was further confused when the bully next door wanted to meet secretly. Their trysts went on for years, and made Bond acutely aware of sexual power and vulnerability. With inimitable style, Bond raises issues about LGBTQ adolescence, homophobia, parenting, and sexuality, while being utterly entertaining. Singer, songwriter, and Tony-nominated performer Mx. Justin Vivian Bond is an Obie, Bessie, and Ethyl Eichelberger Award winner. As one half of the performance duo Kiki and Herb, Bond has toured the world, headlining at Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, and starring in Kiki and Herb Alive on Broadway. Film credits include a role in John Cameron Mitchell’s feature Shortbus. Bond is currently releasing a record, Dendrophile, and is writing a play with Sandra Bernhard.
A moving and hilarious coming-of-age story about love, sex, and attention deficit disorder.

My Jewish Orthodox Girlhood, My Life as a Feminist Artist

Helène Aylon
Helène Aylon was a good Jewish girl raised in orthodox Brooklyn, married to a rabbi, and mother of two when her world split apart. A widow at thirty, she broke free of tradition to become an eco-feminist artist whose work deals in transgressive images about war and peace, women’s bodies, women and god, and the deeply religious world that continues to influence her work to this day. This memoir is a charming dash through the years of a structured orthodox life and the artistic life that freed her to question the misogyny of her beloved religion. It is also a tell-all about the art world, with fascinating details about luminaries such as Ana Mendieta, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, and Betty Parsons. Examples of Aylon’s work included are her early doors for the Jewish chapel at JFK airport, her peace pillowcases (including one worn by Grace Paley), and her current search for the links between feminism and Judaism. Helène Aylon is a visual, conceptual, and installation artist and eco-feminist whose work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum and the Jewish Museum in New York, the Aldrich Museum in Connecticut, and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, among many others. She has upcoming exhibitions at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia. Aylon turned eighty this year.
From orthodoxy to chaos, a major artist wrestles with her influences.

A Novel of Modern Iran Second Edition

Shahrnush Parsipur
Preface by Shirin Neshat Translated by Faridoun Farrokh
“Using the techniques of both the fabulist and the polemicist, Parsipur continues her protest against traditional Persian gender relations in this charming, powerful novella.”—Publishers Weekly A modern literary masterpiece, Women Without Men creates an evocative and powerfully drawn allegory of life in contemporary Iran. Internationally acclaimed writer Shahrnush Parsipur follows the interwoven destinies of five women— including a prostitute, a wealthy middle-aged housewife, and a schoolteacher— as they arrive by different paths to live together in a garden in Tehran. Shortly after the 1989 publication of Women Without Men in her native Iran, Parsipur was arrested and jailed for her frank and defiant portrayal of women’s sexuality. This volume is the first author-approved translation of Women Without Men. Sharhnush Parsipur is the author of Touba and the Meaning of Night, among many books. Born in Iran in 1946, she began her career as a fiction writer and a producer at Iranian National Television and Radio. She now lives in exile in California. Shirin Neshat is an internationally acclaimed visual artist from Iran who adapted Women Without Men into a feature film. Faridoun Farrokh is a professor of English at Texas A&M International University.

The Feminist Press at CUNY I Love Myself When I Am Laughing and Then Again When I Am Looking Mean and Impressive
Second Edition

Zora Neale Hurston
Edited and afterword by Alice Walker Introduction by Mary Helen Washington
“One of the greatest writers of our time.”—Toni Morrison “This well-made collection of her work . . . should give momentum to the rediscovery of Hurston as ‘the intellectual and spiritual foremother of a generation of black women writers.’”—The Washington Post Book Review Known for her audacity and inimitable style, Zora Neale Hurston is widely acknowledged as the forerunner for writers such as Toni Morrison and Alice Walker. This anthology draws together superb selections from her essays, short stories, journalism, folklore, and autobiography. Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960) was a novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist whose fictional and factual accounts of black heritage remain unparalleled. Her many books include Dust Tracks on a Road; Their Eyes Were Watching God; Jonah’s Gourd Vine; Moses, Man of the Mountain; Mules and Men; and Every Tongue Got to Confess. Alice Walker changed the course of the American literary canon when she published her novel The Color Purple in 1982. As an anthologist, she lifted from obscurity the writings of Zora Neale Hurston and introduced Hurston to a new generation of readers in this FP Classic, first published in 1979.

Ruin
Volume 39, Numbers 3&4 Fall/Winter 2011

Edited by Sarah Chinn and Rupal Oza
From lost kingdoms to modern-day disasters, from economic meltdowns to political unrest, from bad reputations to cinematic flops, the specter of ruin is omnipresent and never ending. Often, ruin evokes feelings of nostalgia for good times long gone. Ruin poses the sometimes unthinkable question: What is so bad about ruin and why do we fear it so? Sarah Chinn is the executive director of the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Fence Books Mercury
Ariana Reines

“This astonishing young poet—still in her twenties—is surely destined to be one of the crucial voices of her generation.”—Michael Silverblatt, Bookworm Composed in the direct, accessible, consciousness-piercing style readers of Ariana Reines’ first two books are wildly enamored of, Mercury comprises a group of long poems. These interlocking works speak to the substance and essence of what is said, transmitted, transacted, “communicated” between persons. Reines proposes that substance and essence are opposites, and explores this in contexts including commercial cinema and internet porn. Your music makes me feel lonely Your music makes me feel lonely Your music Makes me feel lonely Picking a lemon Late at night My heart tightens I fear nature Your music makes me feel lonely I must be responsible for it I’m alive I have this hair helmet on I’m so alive I say yes to the megaplex You say it’s awful isn’t it awful I say yeah So what.

Coeur de Lion
Ariana Reines

Now that I am not addressing you But the “you” of poetry I am probably doing something horrible and destructive. But this “I” is the I of poetry And it should be able to do more than I can do. Just a few months after the publication of her prize-winning, instant classic debut The Cow, Ariana Reines self-published this stunning book-length poem, now a cult object among readers of truly contemporary poetry. Coeur de Lion is an intensely personal, monologic meditation on longing, sex, and love between a speaker and the object of all her passions, which include thinking and writing.

Fence Books A Map Predetermined and Chance
Laura Wetherington
“Identified, pressed, touched ‘repeatedly or restlessly,’ pleasured, hankered after, pointed at with the finger. Laura Wetherington means everything, all of everything. ‘The map is not the territory,’ said Alfred Korzybski. Perhaps Wetherington’s map is the territory. ‘All I want is universe,’ she winks.” —C.S. Giscombe, National Poetry Series judge From “You Slip Through My Fingers”: This is a verb: your fingers. This is a noun: my desire. They make a sentence: you finger my desire. Strong, cathartic language on subjects ranging as wide as orgasm, as deep as music, as timely as place, these debut poems speak clearly to history both personal and liberatory. Laura Wetherington, a Virginia native, teaches creative writing at Eastern Michigan University. She co-founded and co-edits Textsound, an online journal of experimental poetry and sound.

The Whole of Poetry is Preposition
Claude Royet-Journoud
Translated by Keith Waldrop
Claude Royet-Journoud’s evocation of the preposition is in homage to Louis Zukofsky; they share a deep affinity for the particular, and for the actual particulars that compose our days—the delicate tissue that binds them. Here the poetics of one of the most important poets of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century is articulated—lucidly and luminously. He sheds light on the subject. Translator Keith Waldrop has been a leader in American explorative poetics for the past fifty years. The author of eighteen books, he was awarded the 2009 National Book Award in poetry and has twice received NEA fellowships in translation.

Feral House Ritual America
Secret Brotherhoods and Their Influence on American Society A Visual Guide

Adam Parfrey and Craig Heimbichner
“Adam Parfrey is one of the nation’s most provocative publishers.”—Seattle Weekly “Secret society historian Craig Heimbichner follows the Middle Path to wisdom. He works the graveyard shift in the secret lodge.”—Joan d’Arc, Paranoia magazine Secret societies—now a staple of bestseller novels—are pictured as sinister cults that use hooded albinos to menace truth-seekers. Some conspiracy books claim that fraternal orders are the work of serpentine aliens and interbred humans who wish to supplant earth of its energy, and later, its very existence. On the other side of the aisle, books by high-ranked Freemasons—skeptical in tone but no less partisan in approach—protect their organization’s public image by denying the existence of its most contentious ideas. Ritual America reveals the biggest secret of them all: that the influence of fraternal brotherhoods on this country is vast, fundamental, and hidden in plain view. In the early twentieth century, as many as one-third of America belonged to a secret society. And though fezzes and tiny car parades are almost a thing of the past, the Gnostic beliefs of Masonic orders are now so much a part of the American mind that the surrounding pomp and circumstance has become faintly unnecessary. The authors of Ritual America contextualize hundreds of rare and many never-before printed images with entertaining and far-reaching commentary, making an esoteric subject provocative, exciting, and approachable. Adam Parfrey is the author of Cult Rapture: Revelations of the Apocalyptic Mind and It’s a Man’s World: Men’s Adventure Magazines, the Postwar Pulps. He is editor of the influential Apocalypse Culture series Love, Sex, Fear Death: The Inside Story of the Process Church of the Final Judgment. Craig Heimbichner has recently appeared on a National Geographic documentary about the Bohemian Grove, contributed to the Feral House compilation Secret and Suppressed II, and wrote about the famous occult order the O.T.O. in Blood and Altar.
An engaging, humorous, and startling look at how fraternal orders and secret societies shaped American life.

Feral House Violence Girl
East L.A. Rage to Hollywood Stage, a Chicana Punk Story

Alice Bag

The proximity of the East L.A. barrio to Hollywood is as close as a short drive on the 101 freeway, but the cultural divide is enormous. Born to Mexicanborn and American-naturalized parents, Alicia Armendariz migrated a few miles west to participate in the free-range birth of the 1970s punk movement. Alicia adopted the punk name Alice Bag, and became lead singer for The Bags, early punk visionaries who starred in Penelope Spheeris’ documentary The Decline of Western Civilization. Here is a life of many crossed boundaries, from East L.A.’s musica ranchera to Hollywood’s punk rock; from a violent male-dominated family to female-dominated transgressive rock bands. Alice’s feminist sympathies can be understood by the name of her satiric all-girl early Goth band Castration Squad. Violence Girl takes us from a violent upbringing to an aggressive punk sensibility; this time a difficult coming-of-age memoir culminates with a satisfying conclusion, complete with a happy marriage and children. Nearly a hundred excellent photographs energize the text in remarkable ways.

Feral House Graffiti Underworld
Villains, Vandals and Visionaries

J.R. Mathews

We’ve seen the folk art form of graffiti derided by police and civic leaders as pure vandalism. In the ’90s some of it was upgraded to art museums, and today the political “street art” of Banksy and Shepard Fairey recontextualize graffiti art yet again. In Graffiti Underworld, J.R. Mathews bypasses the art galleries and travels across the United States to rediscover the original outlaw vandals for no-bullshit interviews about their risky and exciting outlaw creations. Graffiti Underworld interviews nearly two hundred artists, all of them pseudonymous, and includes over three hundred images of their work through the barbed-wire fences, multi-story walls, railroad tracks, and other roughand-tumble surroundings. Graffiti artists and lawbreakers interviewed include: Ader, Anoy, Apes, Arek, Aser, Asic, Aware, Beer, Begr, Bone, Byas, Cern, Chek 1, Clown, Colt 45, Cope, Cornbread, Coupe, Crow, Dark, Dekay, Demer, Den, Denz, Desism, Dyer, Else, Ender, Ether, Evict, Fishe, Flash ABC, Flyos, Ghouls, Gime, Glue, Goner, Graves, GSouth, Hael, Harsh, Heat, Helz, Hert, Hour, Huge, Indecline, Isto, Jaber, Jase, Jee, Jel, Jive, Joey TPA, Kerse, King 157, KR, Kuhr, Lead, Lost, Lyes, Met, Mise, Nark, Neks, Nekst, Neo, Nerose, Omens, Ouija, People, Pepe, Phone, Phrite, Poet, Popmaster Fabel, Prae, Ree2, Resek, Ridl 1, RJay, RVee, Saber, Sachem, Saer, Sake, Sexer, Sicks, Sight, Sinek, Size 21, SMK, Snatch, Space, Spade, Syms, Taco, Takt, Teel, Temp, Then, Timber, Toomer, Tork, Trixter, Typoe, Untold, Urine, Vogue, Voice, Vos, Waste, Yukon, Zek 156, and Zem.

This is his first book.

Feral House Propaganda and Holy Writ of the Process Church of the Final Judgment
Includes The Gods on War Read by Timothy Wyllie, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Lydia Lunch, and Adam Parfrey

Introduction by Adam Parfrey and Timothy Wyllie
The celebrated thematic magazines of the notorious Process Church of the Final Judgment cult were created to be hawked on the street in order to raise money and attract like-minded adherents to their unorthodox Gnostic theology. Printed in order of their first appearance, the Sex, Fear, and Death issues are here reproduced in their entirety in a handsome clothbound book. The Feral House release Love, Sex, Fear, Death: The Inside Story of The Process Church of the Final Judgment by Timothy Wyllie and other ex-members explored the history and aftermath of the notorious organization and the accusations lodged against it. Soon after its publication, Feral House received dozens of requests for full reproduction of the original magazines that are now sold online (when they can be found) for over one thousand dollars apiece. The magazines reproduced in this book are lionized as being decades ahead of their time in terms of the sophistication of its art and design. The cult was also attacked for including in its Death issue a contribution by Charles Manson. This inclusion led the dark-robed cult to be characterized as a sinister death cult. This book provides an introduction by Adam Parfrey and by the magazine’s original art director, Timothy Wyllie. Adam Parfrey contextualizes the meanings and impact of the magazines on the world at large.
Full reproductions of the magazine of the most notorious cult of the twentieth century.

The successful weblog Where They Create documents studios where creativity takes place by showing the work of interior photographer Paul Barbera. Now it’s time to make a book. Where They Create captures thirty studios from all around the world; studios of painters, sculptors, designers, architects, advertising agencies, and many others, some very well known, others only starting out. The studios of Wallpaper* magazine, Clive Wilkinson Architects, Jeremiah Goodman, and Opening Ceremony are included. Important to Barbera is that the photographed studios are somehow connected to someone Barbera knows and that he likes the creative space or the work they do. Where They Create is also a break from the work Barbera does for several interior magazines, where everything is styled and considered. Instead the images for this book are as Barbera finds the spaces, un-styled and raw. Just the way they are. Each project is described with personal information from the owner of the studio and Barbera himself.

Frame Publishers Industry of Nature
Another Approach to Ecology

Elodie Ternaux, Daniel Kula, Jean-Pierre Ternaux, and Michèle Ternaux
Illustrations by Benjamin Gomez
Although information on ecology and sustainability is published and posted daily, it’s obvious that most people feel powerless when faced with the state of our environment today. Materials and technologies claim a dominant position with regard to ecological problems, but we sometimes forget that these may not always be the key to good, comprehensive solutions. The use of materials is only one approach to the larger ecological issue, which clearly has philosophical, metaphysical, economical, and social implications. The world of nature, on the other hand, is an amazing arena filled with smart models of simple and sustainable behaviors. Nature undeniably questions the pretentiously authoritative status that humans have allocated themselves, and nature is the best example of a wholly sustainable and autonomous industry. Industry of Nature explains seventy-five of nature’s strategies to fulfill needs such as protection, temperature regulation, bonding, air conditioning, self-cleaning, anti-collision, transmission of information, camouflage, and many more. By describing these strategies and adding practical application examples, the book provides creative professionals with inspiration and tools for augmenting their work, expanding their imaginations, and improving the world in which we live. Interviews with various specialists, a chapter covering the history of biomimicry, and a bibliography deepen the subject and provide the reader with handles to further delve into the subject. A profusion of photographs and illustrations brings the ideas and relevant information to life.

GLAS New Russian Writing
Moscow, Russia

Praise for GLAS New Russian Writing: “GLAS specializes in exposing the best of new Russian literary fiction to English-speaking readers. GLAS plays an important role in giving people an opportunity to enjoy Russian literature that isn’t necessarily a classic text.”—Publishing Trends “Thanks to GLAS many of the new Russian writers are now available to the Western reader.” —The New Yorker “These stories, which are amusing and unique, act like a playground swing, each one flinging itself in directions different from the others.”—Boston Review GLAS New Russian Writing is an ongoing series of contemporary Russian literature in English translation aiming to introduce more Russian authors to the American reader. A small independent publisher based in Moscow, Russia, GLAS has become the premier showcase for contemporary Russian writing available in English. Since 1991 GLAS has been discovering new writers (Victor Pelevin, Ludmila Ulitskaya, Asar Eppel, Arkady Babchenko) and rediscovering underappreciated past masters (early Mikhail Bulgakov and Andrei Platonov, Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky, Andrei Sinyavsky, Anatoly Mariengof). Begun as a series of anthologies of diverse writers grouped around a unifying theme (such as revolution, fear, childhood, or women’s views), GLAS has taken to publishing single-author books so as to give readers a better sense of the author’s work. Our book-length translations have twice won the Rossica Prize for the best translation from Russian. In 2010 GLAS launched a sub-series featuring winners of the Debut Prize for young authors. Free of the Soviet legacy, this generation is now declaring itself with increasing confidence in life and literature. With more than one hundred names represented, GLAS is indeed the most comprehensive English-language source for Russian letters today: a must for libraries, students of world literature, and all those who love good writing.

GLAS New Russian Writing The Scared Generation
Second Edition

Boris Yampolsky and Vasil Bykov
Introduction by Rachel Polonsky
Boris Yampolsky’s The Old Arbat is a visceral portrait of fear under the Soviet regime: the inner state of a hunted man as he wanders around Moscow trying to escape the secret police. Finally, he overcomes fear by accepting the inevitable. In Vasil Bykov’s The Manhunt, a dispossessed peasant secretly returns from his Siberian exile to his native village in Belarus. The local Cheka, headed by his own son, hunts him down. Given the current situation in both Russia and Belarus, this is as relevant as ever. Boris Yampolsky (1912–1972) was a noted literary figure in the late 1950s. His major novel was banned by censors and only published in the 1990s. Vasil Bykov (1924–2003), a major Byelorussian author of the Solzhenitsyn stamp and winner of top literary prizes, investigated the problem of moral choice versus personal safety.

She has won several prizes, including the Debut, for her novel AUTO-STOP. She has several published books to her credit. Igor Savelyev lives in Ufa (Bashkiria) where he works as a crime reporter.

The amazing thing is that the poet restores the world to all its wonder in the process.

Haus Publishing The Makers of the Modern World Series
Edited by Alan Sharp

“The conception is magnificent. . . . The best are outstanding. Lloyd George, by Alan Sharp, is shrewd, incisive, and learned, a masterpiece of analytical narrative by a notable authority on the international relations of the period. ‘In victory, magnanimity’ was the motto of Churchill’s history of the second world war. These books are a somber confirmation of its wisdom, and required reading for any one who wants to understand how the world has got where it has.”—Jonathan Sumption, The Spectator “A beautifully produced series.”—The Literary Review A groundbreaking series of innovative biographies telling the stories of the men who tried to create “the peace to end all war.” The far-reaching consequences of the agreements reached at the Paris Peace Conference were momentous and played an unrivalled role in shaping the world we live in today. The representatives from each country came with ambitious dreams and high principles. They left, having signed five treaties and founded the League of Nations. The legacy of what they did or did not achieve is examined in these thirty-two volumes.
A chance to buy this groundbreaking and unique series of historical biographies as a set for the first time.

Haus Publishing The Makers of the Modern Middle East
TG Fraser, Andrew Mango, and Robert McNamara

TG Fraser presents a comprehensive analysis of how the decisions taken at the end of World War I forged a new Middle East. These decisions set in place a pattern which formed the political shape of the region as we know it today, including the popular uprisings witnessed in Egypt and Tunisia in 2011. From the Paris Peace Conference right up to the 2011 clashes in Tahrir Square and Hosni Mubarak’s resignation, Fraser gives a relevant and complete overview in this critical time for the Middle East and its people. This book explores the complex interactions of the high politics of the conferences with how Arabs, Jews, and Turks created new realities on the ground, often confounding what the statesmen had decided. With events in the Middle East rarely absent from the world’s headlines, this book offers a scholarly and objective analysis of a critical phase in its development. TG Fraser is professor emeritus of the University of Ulster. He is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society, a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and a member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

Nicholas Woodsworth sets out to satisfy a lifetime curiosity—the true nature, beyond the headlines and the historical clichés, of the city of Jerusalem. While the author himself is deeply skeptical of religion, this book is a portrait of a spiritual Jerusalem that questions the values and examines the beliefs that have sustained Jerusalem’s populations through centuries of conflict and division. At a time when people across the Middle East are calling for greater freedom, Crossing Jerusalem is now especially relevant, offering an unusual and penetrating perspective of the city. Nicholas Woodsworth is a former Financial Times correspondent and the author of The Liquid Continent.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
Sheila Schwartz

The success of his first novel This Side of Paradise gave F. Scott Fitzgerald both celebrity and financial independence, enabling him to marry his “golden girl,” Zelda Sayre. They became the quintessential couple of the Jazz Age, the heady and exciting years of the twenties before the Wall Street crash. Tragically the glamor and decadence of their early years would dissolve into Zelda’s alcoholinduced schizophrenia and, for Fitzgerald, a precarious life in Hollywood that would end in early death. This introductory biography, part of the Life&Times series, is a comprehensive account of Fitzgerald’s literary triumphs and personal misfortune.

Haymarket Books—Celebrating Ten Years Rich People Things
Real Life Secrets of the Predator Class First Trade Paper Edition

Chris Lehmann
“Social criticism at its scorching-hot best.”—Barbara Ehrenreich “Think H.L. Mencken crossed with Jon Stewart.”—The Phoenix In Rich People Things, Chris Lehmann lays bare the various dogmas and delusions that prop up plutocratic rule in the post-meltdown age. It’s a humorous and harrowing tale of warped populism, phony reform, and blind deference to the nation’s financial elite. As the author explains, American class privilege is very much like the idea of sex in a Catholic school—it’s not supposed to exist in the first place, but once it presents itself in your mind’s eye, you realize that it’s everywhere. A concise and easy-to-use guide, Rich People Things catalogs the fortifications that shelter the opulent from the resentments of the hoi polloi. From ideological stanchions such as the Free Market through the castellation of media including The New York Times and Wired magazine, to gatekeepers such as David Brooks, Steve Forbes, and Alan Greenspan, Lehmann covers the vast array of comforting and comprehensive protections that allow the über-privileged to maintain their iron grip on almost half of America’s wealth. With chapters on Malcolm Gladwell, the Supreme Court, the memoir, and more, no one is spared from Lehmann’s pointed prose. Chris Lehmann is employed, ever precariously, as an editor for Yahoo! News, Bookforum, and The Baffler, while dissecting the excesses of his social betters for his column Rich People Things at TheAwl.com. He lives in Washington, DC, with his wife Ana Marie Cox and a quartet of excellent pets.

Haymarket Books—Celebrating Ten Years L-vis Lives
racemusic poems

Kevin Coval

“A new, glowing voice in the world of literature.”—Studs Terkel “L-vis is an unstinting excavation of race and culture, art and ownership. Though dubbed ‘post-racial,’ Coval reminds us America is a country in which race is always receding but ever returning to the center of our consciousness. With poignancy, humor, and no small amount of soul, Coval has fashioned poetry for the present.”—Adam Bradley, co-editor, The Anthology of Rap i am a hero to most. the great hope of something other. a complex back-story. something other than the business of my father. bland’s antonym. jim crow’s black sheep. the forgotten son left to rise in the darkness among the dis carded in the wild of working class, single mother hoods. L-vis Lives is the tale of an archetype, an American anomaly that has become cliché: the white boy reared by black music. In this original poetry collection, Kevin Coval combines and re-imagines Elvis Presley, Eminem, the Beastie Boys, and other artists who have used and misused black culture into a contemporary “L-vis” character. L-vis loves the music. He is both a sincere artist and a thief, naïve and poor. L-vis represents what is possible in cross-cultural understanding, and what is problematic. L-vis lives at the center of the American experiment. This is his story. Kevin Coval is the author of Slingshots and Everyday People, and co-founder and artistic director of Louder Than a Bomb: The Chicago Teen Poetry Festival. A regular contributor to Chicago Public Radio, and a four-time HBO Def Poet, Coval teaches in schools around Chicago.

Haymarket Books—Celebrating Ten Years The United States of Fear
Tom Engelhardt
“A tour de force.”—Jeremy Scahill “Tom Engelhardt is the I. F. Stone of the post-9/11 age.”—Andrew J. Bacevich In 2008, when the US National Intelligence Council issued its latest report meant for the administration of newly elected President Barack Obama, it predicted that the planet’s “sole superpower” would suffer a modest decline and a soft landing fifteen years hence. In his new book The United States of Fear, Tom Engelhardt makes clear that Americans should don their crash helmets and buckle their seat belts, because the United States is on the path to a major decline at a startling speed. Engelhardt offers a savage anatomy of how successive administrations in Washington took the “Soviet path”—pouring American treasure into the military, war, and national security—and so helped drive their country off the nearest cliff. This is the startling tale of how fear was profitably shot into the national bloodstream, how the country—gripped by terror fantasies—was locked down, and how a brain-dead Washington elite fiddled (and profited) while America quietly burned. Think of it as the story of how the Cold War really ended, with the triumphalist “sole superpower” of 1991 heading slowly for the same exit through which the Soviet Union left the stage twenty years earlier. Tom Engelhardt created and runs the TomDispatch website, a project of The Nation Institute, where he is a fellow. He is the author of the critically acclaimed The American Way of War and The End of Victory Culture.
With piercing wit and brutal insight, Tom Engelhardt tours the future ruins of the American empire.

Tariq Ali and Oliver Stone in Conversation

Tariq Ali and Oliver Stone

In working together on two challenging new documentaries—South of the Border and the forthcoming thirteen-part, thirteen-hour Forgotten History of the United States series for Showtime—filmmaker Oliver Stone engaged with author and filmmaker Tariq Ali in a probing, hard-hitting conversation on the politics of history. Their dialogue brings to light a number of forgotten—or deliberately buried—episodes of American history, from the US intervention against the Russian Revolution to the dynamic radicalism of the Wobblies; how Henry Wallace’s nomination for the vice presidency was deliberately thwarted by Democratic Party machine insiders, to the ongoing close connections between various US presidents and the Saudi royal family. For Stone and Ali—two of our most insightful observers on history and popular culture—no topic is sacred, no orthodoxy goes unchallenged. Tariq Ali is an internationally acclaimed Pakistani writer and filmmaker. He has written more than two dozen books on world history and politics and seven novels (translated into over a dozen languages) as well as scripts for the stage and screen. He is an editor of New Left Review and lives in London.

Richard Seymour
“Seymour’s obsessively researched, impressive first book holds its place as the most authoritative historical analysis of its kind.”—Resurgence All empires spin self-serving myths, and in the United States the most potent of these is that America is a force for democracy around the world. Yet there is a tradition of American anti-imperialism which gives the lie to this mythology. Richard Seymour examines this complex relationship from the Revolution to the present-day. Richard Seymour is a socialist writer and runs the blog Lenin’s Tomb. He is the author of The Liberal Defense of Murder. His articles have appeared in the Guardian and New Statesman.

Selections from Cultural Writings
Antonio Gramsci
Edited by David Forgacs and Geoffrey Nowell-Smith Translated by William Boelhower
One of the world’s most influential cultural critics, Antonio Gramsci’s writings on the interconnection between culture and politics fundamentally changed the way that scholars view both. Among the first to argue that art is not the product of “men of genius” but rather particular historical and social contexts, Gramsci remains one of the most widely read theorists of modern culture. Antonio Gramsci was a founding member of the Italian Communist Party and spent most of his adult life imprisoned by Benito Mussolini. After his death and the subsequent publication of his Prison Notebooks, he came to be known as one of the twentieth century’s foremost cultural critics.

Ig Publishing Green Washed
Why We Can’t Buy Our Way to a Green Planet

Kendra Pierre-Louis

The message that our environment is in peril has filtered from environmental groups to the American consciousness to our shopping carts. Every day, millions of Americans dutifully replace conventional produce with organic, swap Mr. Clean for Seventh Generation, and replace their bottled water with water bottles. Many of us have come to believe that the path to environmental sustainability is paved by shopping green. Although this green consumer movement certainly has many Americans consuming differently, it raises an important and rarely asked question—“is this consumption really any better for the planet?” By examining the major economic sectors of our society, including infrastructure (green housing), consumer goods (green clothing and jewelry), food (the rise of organic), and energy (including solar power and the popularity of the hybrid car), Green Washed: Why We Can’t Buy Our Way to a Green Planet explains that, though greener alternatives are important, we cannot simply buy our way to sustainability. Rather, if it is the volume of our consumption that matters, can we as a society dependent on constantly consuming ever be content with buying less? A new and unique take on green consumption, Green Washed shows how buying better is only the first step toward true sustainability. Kendra Pierre-Louis is the sustainable development editor for Justmeans. com. She holds a master’s degree in sustainable development from the SIT Graduate Institute in Vermont. She has created outreach material for the United Nations Environment Programme’s Convention on Biological Diversity and worked as a researcher for Terrapin Bright Green, an environmental consulting and strategic planning firm.
By examining “green” products and industries, Green Washed shows why we cannot shop our way to sustainability.

Ig Publishing The Waste Makers
Vance Packard
Introduction by Bill McKibben
An exposé of “the systematic attempt of business to make us wasteful, debtridden, permanently discontented individuals,” The Waste Makers is Vance Packard’s pioneering 1960 work on how the rapid growth of disposable consumer goods was degrading the environmental, financial, and spiritual character of American society. The Waste Makers was the first book to probe the increasing commercialization of American life—the development of consumption for consumption’s sake. Packard outlines the ways manufacturers and advertisers persuade consumers to buy things they don’t need and didn’t know they wanted, including the two-of-a-kind of everything syndrome—“two refrigerators in every home”— and appeals to purchase something because it is more expensive, or because it is painted in a new color. The book also brought attention to the concept of planned obsolescence, in which a “death date” is built into products so that they wear out quickly and need to be replaced. By manipulating the public into mindless consumerism, Packard believed that business was making us “more wasteful, imprudent, and carefree in our consuming habits,” which was using up our natural resources at an alarming rate. A prescient book that predicted the rise of American consumer culture, this all new edition of The Waste Makers features an introduction by best-selling author Bill McKibben. Vance Packard (1914–1996) was an American journalist, social critic, and best-selling author. Among his other books were The Hidden Persuaders, about how advertisers use psychological methods to get people to buy the products they sell; The Status Seekers, which describes American social stratification and behavior; and The Naked Society, about the threats to privacy posed by new technologies.

Ig Publishing Death Wishing
Laura Ellen Scott
“This is a terrific story, beautifully written, and completely enthralling.” —Dorothy Allison In post-Katrina New Orleans, dying wishes can cure cancer, eliminate cats, bring back Elvis (1968 vintage), and turn the clouds orange. Divorced and disgraced up north, Victor hopes to live a carefree, drunken existence in the French Quarter, making capes and corsets and lusting for the girl who lives across the street—until the hysteria surrounding “death wishing” changes his world in ways he never imagined. Laura Ellen Scott teaches fiction writing at George Mason University. Her work has been selected for The Wigleaf Top Fifty of 2009 and Barrelhouse magazine’s “Futures” issue.

A Meaning For Wife
Mark Yakich
Your wife is killed by a cashew (anaphylactic shock), but there isn’t time to grieve because your toddler son is always at your heels—wanting to be fed, to be played with, or to sleep next to you all night long. A change of pace seems necessary, so you decide to visit your parents in order to attend your twentyyear high school reunion. What begins as a weekend getaway quickly becomes a theater for dealing with the past—a past that you will have to re-imagine in order to have any hope of a future for you and your son. Told in second person, A Meaning for Wife is the story of a man trying to come to terms with the sudden death of his wife, the aging parents he has long avoided, and the tribulations of single parenthood. Mark Yakich is the author of two poetry collections, Unrelated Individuals Forming A Group Waiting to Cross (Penguin Books, 2004) and The Importance of Peeling Potatoes in Ukraine (Penguin Books, 2008). He lives in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he teaches English at Loyola University.

Immedium Desert to Dream
A Dozen Years of Burning Man Photography Revised Edition

Barbara Traub
Foreword and afterword by Larry Harvey Epilogue by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
“Barbara Traub first photographed the effigy of a man set ablaze every year at Burning Man in 1994. Her first shots became the iconic image on her book cover.”—Time “Barbara Traub made her first trip to Burning Man and she and the rest of the world have never been the same. Over the next decade, Traub became one of the festival’s most prominent photographers [and thus one of its unofficial publicists], having her shots from the desert transmitted back to civilization via Mondo 2000, Wired, and numerous other outlets.”—The Onion “Desert to Dream is an unprecedented photographic record of a decade of Burning Man celebrations. . . . Traub worked on assignment for Wired’s cover story on Burning Man, was chief photographer for HardWired’s book Burning Man . . . and shot for Wired News in 2001 [and 2006].”—Wired.com This groundbreaking photo collection now features twelve years of Burning Man. In the beginning, it was a display of alternative art. Today it influences contemporary culture around the globe. Celebrated photographer Barbara Traub captures the zeitgeist in a cornucopia of amazing structures, ingenious artifacts, and eye-popping costumes. Contributions from filmmaker Les Blank; Burning Man founder Larry Harvey; Star Trek’s Spock, Leonard Nimoy; and poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti help illuminate Traub’s unique perspective on this singular festival that attracts more than fifty thousand people annually. The first edition sold out. This revised edition includes sixteen more pages and two-dozen new photographs from 2006 and 2009, and appeals to participants and artists worldwide.

Imperfect Publishing Making WET
The Magazine of Gourmet Bathing

Leonard Koren

WET: The Magazine of Gourmet Bathing was one of the seminal avant-garde publications of the 1970s and early 1980s. It had a quirky, prescient editorial sensibility and was a paradigm-shifting venue for graphic design experimentation. WET was a precursor to, and exemplar for, later publications such as Beach Culture, Ray Gun, and the like. Talents such as Matt Groening (The Simpsons) and others published their first work here. This book tells the story of the making of WET from its early formation in the Venice Beach creative milieu to its emergence on the international pop-culture scene. This book includes an extended commentary on the process of making WET, along with images and reprints from the magazine. No mere retrospective, this book offers instructive advice for anyone embarking on a journey of artistic entrepreneurship. Leonard Koren trained as an artist and architect. He was the founder and publisher of WET: The Magazine of Gourmet Bathing. Koren writes and consults about design- and aesthetic-related issues. Among his previous books are Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers and Which “Aesthetics” Do You Mean? Ten Definitions.

WET was one of the seminal avant-garde magazines of the 1970s. Matt Groening and others got their start here.

Photographs by Werner Bartsch
Text by Werner Bartsch and Sophia Greiff
A cockpit faces an endless desert landscape; a gangway stands in the middle of an abandoned expanse. At the vast aircraft storage grounds in the middle of the desert in the southwestern United States, hundreds of discarded aircraft stand in waiting and contemplate their fate. Normally strictly isolated from the outside world, the storage grounds opened their gates for this project by German photographer Werner Bartsch. In his impressive images we find an ancient specimen of the world’s best known transport aircraft Dakota as well as retired airliners like the Boeing Stratocruiser and even President Eisenhower’s Air Force One, built in 1948.

The Architecture of Donald Wexler

Donald Wexler
Text by Lauren Weiss Bricker and Sidney Williams Interview by Bernard Perlin
This first monograph on Donald Wexler (born 1926), the pioneer of prefabricated steel houses, provides a comprehensive view of the golden years of Californian architecture. This period from the postwar years through the 1970s was a time when architects enjoyed freedom to employ new materials and technologies in their search for functionally beautiful architecture. Wexler applied his unique style to projects for clients such as Frank Sinatra and Walt Disney World Resort. This book includes over one hundred and twenty color plates and architectural drawings, two essays, an interview with Donald Wexler and structural engineer Bernard Perlin, a complete project list, and a bibliography.

Chernobyl: once just an old-fashioned town in the Ukraine, one hundred kilometers from Kiev, today synonymous with the biggest nuclear disaster in human history. 2011 marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the accident that took hundreds of lives and forced thousands of people to leave their homeland. Award-winning photographer Andrej Krementschouk (winner of the 2010 PDN Photo Annual Award) took several trips to Chernobyl, venturing into the restricted thirty-kilometer zone of alienation around the reactor. He took haunting pictures of the rural landscape, alongside touching portraits of people who refused to leave their homes despite the danger of radiation.

Thomas Wrede
Edited by Thorsten Sadowsky and Indra Wussow
In his photo series German photo artist Thomas Wrede juggles with real-life content versus constructedness in photography construed as a mirror of reality. His invented spaces start out as actual views of nature, landscapes, and cities, and are then taken to the threshold of absurdist surrealism and ambiguity. By adding and staging his images with little models, Wrede disturbs our perception of reality and the image. Wrede creates in his photographic worlds room for longings and utopias located somewhere beyond time and space. This catalog covers two of the artist’s outstanding photo series in recent years, Real Landscapes and Seascapes.

The photo series Little Adults explores what it feels like to grow up as a privileged child in Russia, a country where its radical history still rules the daily life. It explores the recently growing society of the “Nouveau Riche” in which children are raised to become the “Elite.” Photographing children of Russia’s oligarchs reflects the extreme contrast between social hierarchies and touches on the control of family aspirations, ideas of normality, the loss of childhood, and the constant desire for fame. Anna Skladmann works between New York and Moscow and has exhibited in Europe and the United States. She has been published in The New York Times and BusinessWeek, among others.

In Case It Rains in Heaven
Photographs by Kurt Tong
Text by Kurt Tong and Wendy Watriss
Traditionally, the Chinese burn joss paper (ghost money) for their ancestors so that they can enjoy their afterlives. Houses, cars, and gold bars made out of paper were burnt in the weeks following a person’s death. However, in recent times, as consumer culture takes hold of the Chinese culture, joss paper products have become more elaborate, reflecting the desires of those who are alive. In an increasingly westernized society, designer handbags, laptop computers, iPods, and fast food made out of paper are burnt for the recently deceased.

Kube Publishing Ltd First Principles of Islamic Economics
Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi

Abul A’la Mawdudi laid down the foundations of modern Islamic economics. Drawing upon Islamic sources, Mawdudi spelled out a new paradigm for economic analysis and policy, wherein economic pursuits take place in the context of moral values and are directed towards the achievement of personal and social objectives. Integral to this approach is the concept of an interestfree economy that attempts to make efficiency and equity inseparable and interdependent. The creation and distribution of wealth thus become instrumental in promoting individual and social wellbeing, opening up pathways to development, social justice, and human welfare. This comprehensive anthology collects all of his major writings and provides a historic as well as an essential introduction to Islamic economics. Abul A’la Mawdudi (1903–1979) was a leading Muslim intellectual and a chief architect of the Islamic revival in the twentieth century. In 1941 he founded Jama’at-i-Islami, a political party in Pakistan, which he led until 1972. He authored more than a hundred works on Islam, both popular and scholarly, and his writings have been translated into some forty languages.

A collection to savor over and over.”—Michael White, author of Beautiful Assassin Praise for Joan Connor’s previous collections: “Brilliantly quirky wit and wordplay.”—Syndey Lea, author of A Little Wilderness “A deeply talented writer.”—Alyce Miller, author of Water “Candor, bracing wit, and skewering insight that could kill if she let it.” —Rosellen Brown, author of Half a Heart Joan Connor’s collection investigates love and loss, sex, family, and the ways they echo back through memory, sometimes to comfort and sometimes to bite.

Long River Press A Concise History of Chinese Philosophy
Main Currents of Thought from Mythology to Mao

Jiefu Xiao and Jinquan Li

This fascinating new history of Chinese philosophy places great emphasis on the interaction between philosophical and historical movements in China from prehistory to the twentieth century. As a result, it is an ideal way to follow China’s often complex social and historical processes—with philosophical movements serving as signposts. From the earliest attempts at divination, feudal systems, and treatises on war and strategy, the book blooms in showing the flowering of some of China’s greatest philosophical traditions—including Daosim, Confucianism, Mohism, and Legalism—and how they ebb and flow, changing and evolving with major and minor alterations through the centuries. For the reader interested not only in the theoretical framework of Chinese philosophy but in how it interacts with history, this book will be a welcome addition to any library. Jiefu Xiao is a professor of philosophy at Wuhan University and vice chair of the Society for the History of Chinese Philosophy and the China Association for the Study of Confucius. Jinquan Li is a professor of philosophy at Sun Yat-sen University.
Connects all the dots by showing the interactions among various philosophical movements in China during the last three thousand years.

LoudMouth Press 100 Voices
Americans Talk About Change

Mary M. Clare, PhD

Psychologist Mary M. Clare hit the highways to survey Americans of all ages and backgrounds for their thoughts on the state of the country. Beginning with the prompt, “What does change mean to you?” this book is a journey to listen to the opinions and beliefs that stretch across a nation. Clare scribes with the hope of opening a door for dialogue across our differences, allowing each of her subjects the space to tell their stories. Each one proves compelling in itself, while showing that the concept of change is a shared hallmark of American identity. Themes come to the foreground via chapter titles and introductions and the result is homegrown definitions and ideas based firmly in the interests of everyday citizens. In the tradition of Studs Terkel, the book remains true to the people that compose it. In a time of manic politics and the acute distortion of democracy, this book points back at us—the people of the United States. These one hundred voices call for the radical act of listening to one another. Here is a book that arises directly from the cultural zeitgeist to guide the reclaiming of democracy. Mary M. Clare, PhD, is the psychological and cultural studies program director at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. Her research and scholarship have focused on applications of psychology in schools with particular emphasis on indentifying and correcting institutionalized systems of oppression.

Lumen Books Níjar Country
First Trade Paper Edition

Juan Goytisolo
Translated by Peter Bush
“Juan Goytisolo is one of the most rigorous and original contemporary writers.”—Mario Vargas Llosa “One of the most brilliant of living writers.”—Los Angeles Times An intimate account of travel in Andalusia during the 1950s, Juan Goytisolo’s early, short narrative grimly revisits the province of Almería, still under Franco’s rule. The critic Ramón Fernández Palmeral writes: “More than a mere travelog, Goytisolo bravely chose to report the social and economic life in the Almería of those Franquista years.” He adds: “Brave, most of all, because by publishing it, even at first in France, Goytisolo risked being sent to jail.” To this day, the Andalusian tourist bureau highly recommends Níjar Country for its keenness and accuracy of observation—human, botanical, linguistic, geographical—so tourists on site and in armchairs may superimpose those still haunting walls graffitied FRANCO, FRANCO, FRANCO on what Níjar Country also indicts as “postcard Spain.” Juan Goytisolo, Spanish novelist and essayist, was born in Barcelona in 1931. He now lives in Marrakech Morocco. His most famous novels are Marks of Identity (1966), Count Julian (1970), and Juan the Landless (1975), each of which was banned in Spain until after Franco’s death.
Seemingly an intimate travelog, Níjar Country actually scrutinizes Franco’s rural society, culminating in condemnation, precipitating Juan Goytisolo’s designation as persona non grata.

Manic D Press 98 Wounds
Justin Chin
“A gay, punk-rock Chinese American in the age of AIDS, Chin confronts all manner of hypocrisy.”—San Francisco Chronicle 98 Wounds is a series of improbably linked stories that reimagines and reconciles the abject, the outlaw, the ostracized, the misfits, and the cranky contrarians among us. Gay people have never been as free—or divided—as in today’s society. As the gay majority surges into the mainstream, a social construct has emerged depicting “Good Gays” and “Bad Gays.” Endless mythmaking goes into dehumanizing the Bad. Barebackers, poz sexpigs, meth-users, sexual libertines, and fetishists have been blamed, shamed, and disdained. Any vicious untruth or loathsome rumor about them—even those contrary to science or common sense—is accepted without question. The characters populating 98 Wounds run roughshod in a city spiraling towards collapse. They broker urgent desires in constant pursuit of identity, obsession, rituals of hope, even the simplicity of an ordinary life. They unwaveringly root for their own understanding of belonging, contentment, pleasure, and love. In 98 Wounds, either we are all damned, or we are all saved: a sentiment that speaks to all cultures in these uncertain times. Award-winning writer Justin Chin is the author of six books, including Bite Hard (Manic D Press) and Mongrel (St. Martin’s Press). His works have been widely anthologized. Born in Malaysia, raised and educated in Singapore, shipped to the United States by way of Hawaii, he currently lives in San Francisco, California.

Manic D Press Trans/Love
Radical Sex, Love & Relationships Beyond the Gender Binary

Edited by Morty Diamond
“This is where sex and gender collide, then ricochet like fragments of heart rending shrapnel. Rarely has a book about lust been full of so much love, conflict, and intelligence. If you think you already know what’s in these stories, or you think you don’t need to know, you’re wrong.”—Patrick Califa, author of Sex Changes: The Politics of Transgenderism Exploring the crossroads of gender and sexuality, Trans/Love: Radical Sex, Love & Relationships Beyond the Gender Binary offers unusually engaging narratives that create a raw and honest depiction of dating, sex, love, and relationships among members of the gender variant community. FTM, MTF, thirdgender, genderqueer, and other non-traditional identities beyond the gender binary of traditional male and female are included in this often heartwarming, occasionally heartbreaking, always heartfelt groundbreaking anthology. From monogamous love and marriage to anonymous sex and one-night hook-ups (and everything in between), these stories offer readers insight into the precarious emotional and practical mechanics of intimacy among gender-variant experiences. Features contributions from award-winning authors including Julia Serano, Sassafras Lowery, and Max Valerio, alongside outstanding new writing by Tribe 8 guitarist and acclaimed film director Silas Howard, activist Joelle Ruby Ryan, filmmaker Ashley Altadonna, SisterSpit alum Cooper Lee Bombardier, and many other unique and talented voices. Morty Diamond is the editor of the critically acclaimed anthology From the Inside Out: Radical Gender Transformation, FTM and Beyond. His performance work includes My Year In Pink and Ask A Tranny, a public performance piece on acceptance of and education about the trans experience.

Manic D Press Why Aren't You Smiling?
Alvin Orloff

“There will never be a shortage of funny writers, but Alvin Orloff is in another category altogether: the stylist. Like Armistead Maupin before him, Orloff knows how to do things with the absurd and the transitory that make a perfect dollhouse for his absurdly huge heart.”—Kevin Killian, author of Impossible Princess When fourteen-year-old Leonard decides to quit being a Dweeb and instead joins the Burnouts, his “good boy” persona is abandoned as he embarks on a comically painful journey of self-discovery through his unconventional friendship with Rick, an older Jesus-freak barefoot hippie. The farcical parallel story of how Irving Mandelbaum from Los Angeles transmogrifies into rag-tag cult leader Rick of The Forever Family paints an indelible portrait of California during one of its most preposterous eras. Growing up in the 1970s has never before been portrayed with such delightful ludicrousness and heartrending tenderness as in Why Aren’t You Smiling? Alvin Orloff, a California native, began writing as a teenager in the 1970s, a decade from which he has never fully recovered. He is the author of I Married An Earthling (Manic D Press), a genre and gender-bending sci-fi send up, and Gutter Boys (Manic D Press), a novel of decadent romance with ghosts. Orloff is also the co-author of The Unsinkable Bambi Lake, a transsexual showbiz memoir, and his short work has appeared in Pills, Chills, Thrills, and Heartache (Alyson Books) as well as the journal Instant City. He holds an MFA in creative writing from San Francisco State University.
Absurdity abounds when a curious teenage dweeb longing to be cool meets a charismatic Jesus-freak barefoot hippie in 1975 California.

Monkfish Book Publishing Red-Robed Priestess
A Novel

Elizabeth Cunningham

After a long, eventful life that has brought her through slavery to the Resurrection garden, through the controversies of the early Church to a hermit cave in southern Gaul, Maeve, the Celtic Magdalen, comes full circle. With her daughter Sarah, Maeve returns to the British Isles to seek her firstborn daughter taken from her by the druids more than forty years ago. The night before her channel crossing, Maeve encounters a man she first mistakes for Jesus’ ghost. He is equally haunted, and the two are drawn into a moonstruck liaison that will entwine their lives in “an impossible Celtic knot.” He is none other than General Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, the newly appointed Governor of Britain, destined to defeat the Iceni Queen Boudica in one of the bloodiest battles in history. And Boudica is none other than Maeve’s lost child. Fully accessible to new readers, Red-Robed Priestess will be deeply satisfying to fans who have accompanied Maeve on her journey, reuniting them with beloved characters from the earlier novels, especially Magdalen Rising. At sixty something, Maeve is as feisty as ever with her distinctive sense of irreverent humor very much intact, but she has also grown—and so has the author. In this final volume of the acclaimed Maeve Chronicles, Elizabeth Cunningham confronts a political and emotional complexity that speaks to our times. Maeve’s courageous and compassionate witness of an epic tragedy she cannot prevent will challenge and comfort all of us who have ever faced intractable circumstances of our own.
The final installment of the Maeve Chronicles.

Monkfish Book Publishing Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way
Någårjuna’s Mulamadhyamakakarika

Brad Warner and Gudo Wafu Nishijima
Translated by Gudo Wafu Nishijima
The Mulamadhyamakakarika (MMK) was written by Master Någårjuna, an Indian Buddhist philosopher of the second century. Mahåyåna Buddhism had arrived at its golden age and Någårjuna was considered its highest authority. The MMK is revered as the most conclusive of his several Buddhist works. Its extraordinarily precise and simple expression suggests that it was written when Master Någårjuna was mature in his Buddhist practice and research. Brad Warner is the author of popular books on Zen including Hardcore Zen, Sit Down & Shut Up, and Sex, Sin & Zen.

How to Make Change Happen

Tim Gee

In showing how counterpower can be strategically applied, Gee has created an inspiration for activists and an invaluable resource for teachers and students of social change. Tim Gee is a writer and communications specialist working with campaigning organizations in the United Kingdom and worldwide.

New Society Publishers The End of Growth
Adapting to Our New Economic Reality

Richard Heinberg

Economists insist that recovery is at hand, yet unemployment remains high, real estate values continue to sink, and governments stagger under record deficits. The End of Growth proposes a startling diagnosis: humanity has reached a fundamental turning point in its economic history. The expansionary trajectory of industrial civilization is colliding with non-negotiable natural limits. Richard Heinberg’s latest landmark work goes to the heart of the ongoing financial crisis, explaining how and why it occurred, and what we must do to avert the worst potential outcomes. Written in an engaging, highly readable style, it shows why growth is being blocked by three factors: • Resource depletion, • Environmental impacts, and • Crushing levels of debt. These converging limits will force us to re-evaluate cherished economic theories and to reinvent money and commerce. The End of Growth describes what policy makers, communities, and families can do to build a new economy that operates within Earth’s budget of energy and resources. We can thrive during the transition if we set goals that promote human and environmental well-being, rather than continuing to pursue the now-unattainable prize of ever-expanding GDP. Richard Heinberg is the author of nine previous books, including The Party’s Over, Peak Everything, and Blackout. A senior fellow of Post Carbon Institute, Heinberg is one of the world’s foremost peak oil educators and an effective communicator of the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels.
Economics has failed us . . . but there is life after growth!

New Society Publishers The Permaculture Handbook
Garden Farming for Town and Country

Peter Bane

The urban landscape has swallowed vast swaths of prime farmland across North America. Imagine how much more self-reliant our communities would be if thirty million acres of lawns were made productive again. Permaculture is a practical way to apply ecological design principles to food, housing, and energy systems, making growing fruits, vegetables, and livestock easier and more sustainable. The Permaculture Handbook is a step-by-step, beautifully illustrated guide to creating resilient and prosperous households and neighborhoods, complemented by extensive case studies of three successful farmsteads and market gardens. This comprehensive manual casts garden farming as both an economic opportunity and a strategy for living well with less money. It shows how, by mimicking the intelligence of nature and applying appropriate technologies such as solar and environmental design, permaculture can: • • • • Create an abundance of fresh, nourishing local produce Reduce dependence on expensive, polluting fossil fuels Drought-proof our cities and countryside Convert waste into wealth

Permaculture is about working with the earth and with each other to repair the damage of industrial overreach and to enrich the living world that sustains us. The Permaculture Handbook is the definitive practical North American guide to this revolutionary practice, and is a must-read for anyone concerned about creating food security, resilience, and a legacy of abundance rather than depletion. Peter Bane is a permaculture teacher and site designer who has published and edited Permaculture Activist magazine for over twenty years. He helped create Earthaven Ecovillage in North Carolina, and is now pioneering suburban farming in Bloomington, Indiana.
Permanent agriculture—abundance by design.

Most of us turn a blind eye to the startling array of chemicals lurking in everything from shampoo to baby bottles to the money in our wallets, choosing to believe that government agencies ensure the safety of the products we wear, use, ingest, and breathe in daily. Yet the standards for product safety in North America lag far behind those of other countries. We frequently hear that a substance we’ve relied on for years turns out to have serious effects on our health, the environment, or both. After coming to terms with the fact that the autism and cancer which had impacted her family were most likely the result of environmental toxins, author Deanna Duke undertook a mission to dramatically reduce her family’s chemical exposure. She committed to drastically reducing the levels of all known chemicals in both her home and work environments, using the help of body burden testing to see what effect, if any, she was able to have on the level of toxins in her body. Follow Deanna’s journey as she uncovers how insidious and invasive environmental toxins are. Learn about your day-to-day chemical exposure, the implications for your health, and what you can do about it. And find out whether the author’s quest is mission impossible, or whether she is ultimately able to improve her family’s health by taking steps towards leading a chemical-free life. Deanna Duke is an environmental writer, urban homesteader, and author of the highly acclaimed environmental blog The Crunchy Chicken.

New Society Publishers Home Sweet Zero Energy Home
What It Takes to Develop Great Homes that Won’t Cost Anything to Heat, Cool or Light Up, Without Going Broke or Crazy

Barry Rehfeld
Zero energy homes produce at least as much energy as they consume through a combination of energy efficiencies, passive design, and renewable energy production. California has adopted zero net energy as the new residential standard for 2020; many other governments are considering similar policies. Developing zero energy homes is the first step towards making all buildings zero energy—a critical step in mitigating climate change, since buildings account for forty percent of material and energy use worldwide. Home Sweet Zero Energy Home is the first practical guidebook that clearly shows how zero energy homes can be good, livable, affordable homes. The author identifies all the pieces of the zero energy puzzle and how they fall into place, and explains how homeowners and buyers can also take smaller steps towards sharply reducing the energy use of existing buildings. Focusing on real costs and savings, this book takes an in-depth look at: • • • • • Site selection and passive design Insulation, windows, doors, and building materials Heating and cooling Appliances and electronics Financial resources and incentives

New Society Publishers Housing Reclaimed
Sustainable Homes for Next to Nothing

Jessica Kellner

Housing is a fundamental human right. For most of human history, our homes were built by hand from whatever local materials were available. However, since the Industrial Revolution, most housing has become little more than quickly constructed, mass-produced, uniform boxes. At the same time, the invention and standardization of the thirty-year mortgage and our ever-increasing reliance on credit has come to mean that most of us never own our homes outright. Housing Reclaimed is a call to arms for nonconventional home builders. It examines how technological advances, design evolution, and resourceful, out-ofthe-box thinking about materials and efficiency can help us meet the challenge of building affordable, environmentally friendly, beautiful, and unique homes. Focusing on the use of salvaged and reclaimed materials, this inspirational volume is packed with case studies of innovative projects including: • Phoenix Commotion—working together towards low-income home ownership through sweat equity and 100 percent recycled materials • HabeRae—revitalizing neighborhoods by creating urban infill using modern technology and sustainable and reclaimed materials • Builders of Hope—rescuing and rehabilitating whole houses slated for demolition These projects and others like them demonstrate that building one’s own home does not have to be an unattainable dream. This beautifully illustrated guide is a must-read for anyone interested in creating quality zero- or lowdebt housing, reducing landfill waste, and creating stronger communities. Jessica Kellner is the editor of Natural Home and Garden magazine and a passionate advocate of using architectural salvage to create aesthetically beautiful, lowcost housing.

New Society Publishers The Urban Food Revolution
Changing the Way We Feed Cities

Peter Ladner

Our reliance on industrial agriculture has resulted in a food supply riddled with hidden environmental, economic, and health care costs and beset by rising food prices. With only a handful of corporations responsible for the lion’s share of the food on our supermarket shelves, we are incredibly vulnerable to supply chain disruption. The Urban Food Revolution provides a recipe for community food security based on leading innovations across North America. The author draws on his political and business experience to show that we have all the necessary ingredients to ensure that local, fresh, sustainable food is affordable and widely available. He describes how cities are bringing food production home by: • Growing community through neighborhood gardening, cooking, and composting programs • Rebuilding local food processing, storage, and distribution systems • Investing in farmers markets and community supported agriculture • Reducing obesity through local fresh food initiatives in schools, colleges, and universities. • Ending inner-city food deserts

Homegrown and Handmade shows how making things from scratch and growing at least some of your own food can help you eliminate artificial ingredients from your diet, reduce your carbon footprint, and create a more authentic life. Whether your goal is increasing your self-reliance or becoming a fullfledged homesteader, it’s packed with answers and solutions to help you: • Take control of your food supply from seed to plate • Raise small and medium livestock for fun, food, and fiber • Rediscover traditional skills to meet more of your family’s needs than you ever thought possible

In 2008 the United States elected its first black president, and recent polls show that only twenty-two percent of white people in the United States believe that racism is a major societal problem. On the surface, it may seem to be in decline. However, the evidence of discrimination persists throughout our society. Segregation and inequalities in education, housing, health care, and the job market continue to be the norm. Post 9/11, increased insecurity and fear have led to an epidemic of the scapegoating and harassment of people of color. Uprooting Racism offers a framework for understanding institutional racism. It provides practical suggestions, tools, examples, and advice on how white people can intervene in interpersonal and organizational situations to work as allies for racial justice. Completely revised and updated, this expanded third edition directly engages the reader through questions, exercises, and suggestions for action, and takes a detailed look at current issues such as affirmative action, immigration, and health care. It also includes a wealth of information about specific cultural groups such as Muslims, people with mixed heritage, Native Americans, Jews, recent immigrants, Asian Americans, and Latinos. Previous editions of Uprooting Racism have sold more than fifty thousand copies. Accessible, personal, supportive, and practical, this book is ideal for students, community activists, teachers, youth workers, and anyone interested in issues of diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice. Paul Kivel is an award-winning author and an accomplished trainer and speaker. He has been a social justice activist, a nationally and internationally recognized anti-racism educator, and an innovative leader in violence prevention for over forty years.

New Society Publishers Techno-Fix
Why Technology Won’t Save Us Or the Environment

Michael Huesemann and Joyce Huesemann

Nanotechnology! Genetic engineering! Miracle drugs! We are promised that new technological developments will magically save us from the dire consequences of the three hundred-year fossil-fueled binge known as modern industrial civilization, without demanding any fundamental changes in our behavior. There is a pervasive belief that technological innovation will enable us to continue our current lifestyle indefinitely, and will prevent social, environmental, and economic collapse. Techno-Fix shows that negative unintended consequences of technology are inherently unavoidable and predictable, techno-optimism is completely unjustified, and modern technology, in the presence of continued economic growth, does not promote sustainability, but hastens collapse. The authors demonstrate that most technological solutions to social and technology created problems are ineffective. They explore the reasons for the uncritical acceptance of new technologies, show who really controls the direction of technological change, and then advocate extensive reform. This comprehensive exposé is a powerful argument for why we can and should put the genie back in the bottle. An insightful and powerful critique, it is required reading for anyone who is concerned about blind technooptimism and believes that the time has come to make science and technology more socially and environmentally responsible. Michael Huesemann, PhD, is a research scientist with a special interest in sustainability and critical science. He has specialized in environmental biotechnology for more than twenty-five years. Joyce Huesemann, PhD, is an activist and academic who has taught at several universities and participates actively in a number of environmental, wildlife protection, and companion-animal organizations.
A powerful and insightful critique of modern techno-optimism.

New Society Publishers Fleeing Vesuvius
Overcoming the Risks of Economic and Environmental Collapse

Edited by Gillian Fallon and Richard Douthwaite
Foreword by Richard Heinberg
The financial crisis that has blighted the world’s richest countries since 2008 was a turning point in human history because it ushered in an era in which economies will tend to shrink rather than grow. Incomes will decline because the natural resources required for growth—particularly oil, the lifeblood of the world economy—can no longer be extracted in growing quantities. Indeed, as this book shows, the financial crash itself was due to an irresistible force—the rising global demand for cheap fossil fuels—meeting an immoveable object— a static supply. Fleeing Vesuvius is a collection of twenty-seven essays by well-known international authors, all leading thinkers in their fields. Luminaries such as David Korowicz, Richard Douthwaite, Nate Hagen, Dmitry Orlov, and Dan Sullivan weave together the threads of peak oil, resource depletion, economic instability, and climate change, and offer far-reaching solutions including: • Concrete strategies for personal adaptation • Workable models of self-reliant local communities • Frameworks to support international action on financial and economic reform

Acting Together II: Performance and the Creative Transformation of Conflict
Volume 2: Building Just and Inclusive Communities

Edited and introduced by Cynthia E. Cohen, Roberto Gutiérrez Varea, and Polly O. Walker
Foreword by Salomon Lerner
Acting Together II continues where the first volume left off, presenting more inspiring examples of peace-building performances in conflict-ridden regions. Where the first volume emphasizes theater and ritual’s potential for resistance and catharsis in the midst of direct violence and in the aftermath of mass violence, the second volume focuses on performance’s ability to bridge gaps and create inclusion in the more subtle context of structural violence and social exclusion. Drawing examples from the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe, this volume also includes practical recommendations for policy makers, a toolkit for practitioners, and a wealth of resources for artists and educators.

Praise for Touraj Daryaee’s Sasanian Persia: “Touraj Daryaee’s Sasanian Persia . . . is a masterpiece of research and will be that last word on Sasanian Iran in all of its aspects, from political history to religion, society, and commerce.”—Richard N.

Ocean Press The Strategic Victory
The War Against Batista in the Sierra Maestra

Fidel Castro

Here at last is the first volume in Fidel Castro’s long-awaited memoir, a project he has been working on since he retired from public office in 2006. Opening with an extensive chapter on his childhood and youth, this is Fidel Castro’s never-before-published account of the guerrilla movement that led to the Cuban revolution in 1959. Besides being a lively and absorbing memoir and the most authoritative history of the period, this is also destined to be a classic of military history. A keen student of great military tacticians, Fidel Castro led three hundred young guerrillas who pitted themselves against General Fulgencio Batista’s ten thousand troops that were supported and trained by the United States. Including 270 pages of photographs and color maps, as well as facsimiles of key documents, this is an unprecedented source of documentary material. Among some of the most fascinating documents in this book is the unpublished correspondence between Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. This book should be read in conjunction with Che Guevara’s memoir of this period: Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War (Ocean Press), on which Steven Soderbergh based the first part of his epic movie Che, starring Benicio del Toro. A must-read for those who want to understand Cuba then and now and the fifty-year conflict between the island and its mighty neighbor.
The first volume of Fidel Castro’s long-awaited memoirs describing the two-year guerrilla war against the Batista dictatorship.

Ocean Press The Great Debate on Political Economy and Revolution
Ernesto Che Guevara
Contributions by Ernest Mandel and Charles Bettelheim Edited by David Deutschman
“This debate has a special place in the history of Marxist thought.” —Ernest Mandel, author of Marxist Economic Theory and Late Capitalism In the post-Soviet era, what is the relevance of Marxist economics? In the early years following the 1959 Cuban revolution, Ernesto Che Guevara initiated an unprecedented and highly controversial debate on the economic challenges of the “transition to socialism.” Without making it explicit, the model Che proposed for Cuba was clearly counterposed to what existed in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, of which he was highly critical. Internationally prominent Marxist economists such as Ernest Mandel and Charles Bettelheim participated in what became known as “The Great Debate.” This historic debate is now published in English with recent commentaries by current day Marxist economists offering a unique resource for a new generation discussing alternatives to capitalism. The publication of this book is particularly timely as Cuba today confronts an economic crisis and seeks to make dramatic changes to its economic system. This book adds an entirely new dimension to Che Guevara, beyond the young adventurer on a motorcycle or as a guerrilla icon, as a profound student of economic theory and practice. Although trained as a doctor, Ernesto Che Guevara assumed two key posts after the 1959 revolution as Minister for Industry and President of the National Bank. In those roles he took primary responsibility to industrialize Cuba and transform its economy and immediately immersed himself in the study of political economy.
Che Guevara and leading Marxist economists discuss political economy and the challenges of the revolutionary transformation of a capitalist society.

Paul Dry Books Unreasonable Doubt
Circumstantial Evidence and an Ordinary Murder in New Haven

Norma Thompson

“Part detective story, part social commentary, part intellectual autobiography, part philosophical analysis, this is a jury book unlike any other.”—Anthony Kronman, Sterling Professor of Law and former dean, Yale Law School “[Norma Thompson] teaches us, brilliantly and painlessly, why judging, as opposed to simply knowing, is an essential part of a responsible human existence, recounting the trials and crimes and moral dilemmas of antiquity and classical tradition in a stunningly original reading.”—Abraham D. Sofaer, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and former United States district judge In 2001, Norma Thompson served on the jury in a murder trial in New Haven, Connecticut. In Unreasonable Doubt, Thompson dramatically depicts the jury’s deliberations, which ended in a deadlock. As foreperson, she pondered the behavior of some of her fellow jurors that led to the trial’s termination in a hung jury. Blending personal memoir, social analysis, and literary criticism, she addresses the evasion of judgment she witnessed during deliberations and relates that evasion to contemporary political, social, and legal affairs. She then assembles an imaginary jury of Alexis de Tocqueville, Plato, and Jane Austen, among others, to show how the writings of these authors can help model responsible habits of deliberation. Norma Thompson is senior lecturer in humanities and associate director of the Whitney Humanities Center at Yale University. She is the author most recently of The Ship of State: Statecraft and Politics from Ancient Greece to Democratic America.
Sit in the jury box, then observe the deliberations, as Norma Thompson takes you inside a real-life murder trial.

Paul Dry Books From Berlin to Jerusalem
Memories of My Youth

Gershom Scholem
Translated by Harry Zohn
“A serene, lucid, and stylish essay in intellectual autobiography that at the same time commemorates a vanished world.”—The Times Literary Supplement From Berlin to Jerusalem portrays the dual dramas of the author’s total break from his middle-class German Jewish family and his ever-increasing dedication to the study of Jewish thought. Played out during the momentous years just before, during, and after World War I, these experiences eventually led Gersham Scholem to immigrate to Palestine in 1923.
RELIGION February 5 x 8 | 178 pp Trade Paper US $16.95 | CAN $19.95 978-1-58988-073-3 USC

Gershom Scholem was professor of Jewish mysticism at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem until his death in 1982.

A deep and abiding passion, wedded to the keenest of intellects, shaped Gersham Scholem’s life’s work— the study of Jewish mysticism.

On Jews and Judaism in Crisis
Selected Essays

Gershom Scholem
“Gershom Scholem is a historian who has remade the world. . . . He is coming to be seen as one of the greatest shapers of contemporary thought, possibly the boldest mind-adventurer of our generation.”—Cynthia Ozick, The New York Times Book Review On Jews and Judaism in Crisis presents Gershom Scholem confronting, studying, and judging the important ideas, events, and figures of twentieth-century Judaism. It includes essays on Martin Buber, S. Y. Agnon, and Scholem’s friend Walter Benjamin; also his famous 1964 letter to Hannah Arendt. In a 1975 interview, Scholem provides fascinating information about his own life.

Paul Dry Books The Music of the Republic
Essays on Socrates’ Conversations and Plato’s Writings First Trade Paper Edition

Eva Brann
“It is a wonder and a delight to be led by Eva Brann through the Socratic conversations. She begins from first impressions and moves through perplexity to clarity, without losing the thread. Those who do not know the Republic, will be initiated into its treasures. Those who believe that it is a great book will understand better what they already know. And all who teach the dialogues will find their souls expanded in the presence of this most generous teacher.” —Ann Hartle, Emory University In this collection of essays, Eva Brann talks with readers about the conversations Socrates has with his fellow Athenians. She shows how Plato’s dialogues and the timeless matters they address remain important to us today. From introductory pieces on the Republic, the Phaedo, and the Sophist to an account of the less well known Charmides, each essay starts where Plato starts, without presupposing a critical theory. In the title essay’s brilliant account of the Republic, Brann demonstrates its central importance in Plato’s work. Other essays consider Plato’s notion of time, discuss how to teach Plato to undergraduates, and contend that a thoughtful text-based study of Plato can have a very personal impact on a reader. Encouraged to befriend the dialogues, readers will join in the great Socratic conversations. Eva Brann is a member of the senior faculty at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland, where she has taught for more than fifty years.
“The title essay . . . is a miniature masterpiece, one of the most seminal writings of our time on Plato’s Republic.”—John Sallis

Process Demons in the Age of Light
A Memoir of Psychosis and Recovery

Whitney Robinson

With the skill of a gifted novelist, twenty-three-year-old Whitney Robinson recounts the harrowing true story of her descent into mental illness soon after she arrived at college. Her doctor labeled the illness schizophrenia, but Whitney felt that she became possessed by a malevolent, seductive entity that attempted to influence her into harming herself and others. Institutionalized and heavily medicated, Whitney encounters other horrors and mysteries within the walls of a psychiatric hospital. Determined to release herself from pharmacological shackles, Whitney finally confronts and expels her demon through sheer will and alternative methods, including an attempted exorcism and shamanic healing. Whitney’s saga parallels current discussions in the media regarding American psychiatry’s dependence on drug-based treatments and the renewed interest in alternative healing methods of eastern and indigenous cultures, which, according to a recent New York Times article “The Americanization of Mental Illness,” have been revealed to be at least as effective as pharmaceutically driven treatments. Whitney’s story of survival and personal growth will serve as a living model for others on radio and television programs.

“You have no choice but to read this important book.”—Hanif Kureishi We are encouraged from all sides to view our lives as being full of choices. Like the products on a supermarket shelf, our careers, our relationships, our bodies, our very identities seem to be there for the choosing. But paradoxically, this seeming freedom to choose can create extreme anxiety and feelings of inadequacy. Choice explores how late capitalism’s shrill exhortations to “be oneself” can be a tyranny which only leads to ever-greater disquiet. Renata Salecl is a Slovenian philosopher and sociologist. Her previous books include On Anxiety.

As a result, children will learn to exhibit more pro-social behaviors, work better as a community, and become excited and active learners.

Saqi Books Political Journeys
The openDemocracy Essays

Fred Halliday
Introduction by Stephen Howe
“Whatever the subjects . . . Halliday’s knowledge, imagination, and intellectual independence illuminate them all.”—Francis Wheen “Fred Halliday’s Political Journeys range over wide intellectual and political landscapes, with brilliant insights, absorbing narratives, lucid writing, and subtle humour.”—Sami Zubaida Fred Halliday always combined the broad sweep of modern history, its currents and ideas, with a profound knowledge of modern revolutions, the Middle East, and national movements. This collection of articles written for openDemocracy between 2004 and 2009 is proof of a subtle worldview that continues to generate questions: what is the relation between religion, nationalism, and progress? Is a new international order possible? When is intervention a force for progress? From the big headline topics like the Iraq War or the Danish cartoons, to the unexpected comparisons of Tibet and Palestine, or Afghanistan and the Falklands, Halliday is a perennially surprising and enlightening guide to the major issues of international politics. Fred Halliday (1946–2010) was a leading authority on superpower relations, the Middle East, and international relations theory. He was professor emeritus of international relations at the London School of Economics from 1985 to 2008 and a research professor at the Barcelona Institute for International Studies.

Translated by Amira Nowaira

“More than any other woman, Nawal El Saadawi has come has come to embody the trials of Arab feminism.”—San Francisco Chronicle “The leading spokeswoman on the status of women in the Arab World.”—Guardian “El Saadawi writes with directness and passion.”—The New York Times Bodour, a distinguished literary critic, carries with her a dark secret. As a young university student, she fell in love with a political activist and gave birth to an illegitimate daughter, Zeina, whom she abandoned on the streets of Cairo. Zeina grows up to become one of Egypt’s most beloved entertainers, despite being deprived of a family name and a home. Bodour in turn remains trapped in a loveless marriage, pining for her daughter and lost love. In an attempt to find solace, she writes a fictionalized account of her life, which then mysteriously gets stolen. Set against the backdrop of revolution in Cairo, Zeina is a tale about regret, loss, and the courage it takes for a mother to face up to the mistakes of her past.

The Literary Heritage of the Arabs samples some of the finest literature produced by Arab writers across the past 1,500 years.

Thus, the reader will also come to discover, behind the local color and literary convention, our common humanity. Authors included are Al-Mutanabbi, Al-Ghazzali, Ibn Arabi, Ibn Battuta, Ibn Khaldun, Kahlil Gibran, Taha Hussein, Naguib Mahfouz, Mahmoud Darwish, Adonis, Salma, Khadra al-Jayyusi, Fudwa Tuqan, and Nizar Qabbani.

Saqi Books Parastou Forouhar
Art, Life and Death in Iran

Edited by Rose Issa

“Her response to the horrors of our times gives her work pupose and energy. . . . In her depiction of everyday mental and physical brutality, she creates images of aesthetic appeal but disturbing ambiguity.”—Lutz Becker The Iranian artist Parastou Forouhar expresses her reaction to the perplexing situations in her homeland through a wide variety of techniques, from photography to digital drawings and multi-media installations. This publication presents a selection of her most startling work so far, created in response to the dramatic social and political upheaval that she experienced after the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and the murder of her parents in Tehran. Though the inspiration behind Forouhar’s subject matter may be tragic, her work has a great emotional range: the results are sometimes macabre, occasionally darkly humorous, and often purely joyful.

Saqi Books The Meaning of Mecca
The Politics of Pilgrimage in Early Islam

M.E. McMillan

The hajj, the fifth pillar of Islam, is a religious duty to be performed once in a lifetime by all Muslims who are able. The Prophet Muhammad set out the rituals of hajj when he led what became known as the Farewell Hajj in 10 AH (632 AD). This set the seal on Muhammad’s career as the founder of a religion and the leader of a political entity based on that religion. The convergence of the Prophet with the politician infuses the hajj with political, as well as religious, significance. For the caliphs who led the Islamic community after Muhammad’s death, leadership of the hajj became a position of enormous political relevance as it presented them with an unrivaled opportunity to proclaim their pious credentials and reinforce their political legitimacy. This unique study analyzes information provided by contemporary sources about the leadership of the hajj in Islam’s formative period, between the seventh and tenth centuries, and assesses the pilgrimage from a political perspective. Published in advance of a major British Museum exhibition, The Hajj: Journey to the Heart of Islam, opening in London in January 2012. M.E. McMillan earned a PhD in Islamic history at the University of St Andrews, and has worked for the UN Security Council as a translator. The author lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The first study to analyze the political subtext of Islam’s most high profile religious ritual.

Saqi Books The New Post-Oil Arab Gulf
Managing People and Wealth

Edited by Nabil Sultan, David Weir, and Zeinab Karake-Shalhoub
The sharp increase in oil revenues since 2002 has left the Arab Gulf States with billions of petro-dollars. But how will these countries fare in the postoil era? The rulers of these states are taking serious measures to ensure the survival of their economies, and indeed their regimes, in a world with scarce mineral resources. This book explores the extent to which these countries have been and will be able to prepare for the future by transforming themselves into serious international destinations for tourism, finance, healthcare, and education. It also considers the implications of failure for the future survival of their regimes. Topics covered include sovereign funds, Islamic finance, new technologies, higher education, and the role of women. A timely study into this vibrant and important region, this book will provide food for thought for academics, policy makers, and general readers. Nabil Sultan is a senior lecturer at Liverpool Hope University. David Weir is a professor at Liverpool Hope University.

Sarabande Books Rough Likeness
Essays

Lia Purpura

Praise for Lia Purpura: “Lia Purpura is fierce. She creates a kind of word origami, folding phonemes and inquiries into intricate paper delights. Then she holds a magnifying glass over them, focusing her rapturous attentions through the lens, until twists of smoke appear, and geometries of flame and sparks rain. If language is, as she suggests in one essay, ‘a game we all [agree] to play,’ then Purpura is at once a master of the game and a soulful, wild playmate.”—Leah Hager Cohen “Purpura’s sense of the intricate rhythms of language, her carefully constructed imagery, her leaps of association and symbols all recall the language of a poet. Her seductive, confessional voice, her need to be plain about her own experiences as a mother, a writer, and an observer of the world call to mind the works of the memoirist. And her finely tuned critical mind . . . suggest[s] the work of the critic and aesthetic philospher. . . . In these essays, Lia Purpura brings a nuanced, highly intelligent, critical eye to our most casual moments of perception.”—Kevin Prufer, Critical Mass In Rough Likeness, the follow-up to the National Book Critics Circle finalist On Looking, Lia Purpura’s essays take a conversational turn to examine the smallest things imaginable—beach glass, the color “gunmetal,” a mushroom—as well as states of being. Czesław Miłosz said, “nothing but gifts on this poor, poor earth,” and Purpura, in her excursions, finds worlds in the minute, crafting monuments to sentience.
Lyric essays that examine the smallest things imaginable—beach glass, the color “gunmetal,” a mushroom—as well as states of being.

Sarabande Books Something in My Eye
Stories

Michael J. Lee
Introduction by Francine Prose
“I was drawn to Michael J. Lee’s line-up of loners and drifters, imperiled children, and haunted psychos neither because I want to hang out with these bad boys, nor because I plan to cross the street when I see them coming, but because the invitation to inhabit their minds, to see the world through their eyes, and to watch their often unsettling stories play out in space and time enables Lee to do all sorts of extremely interesting things with consciousness and language.”—Francine Prose, judge for the Mary McCarthy Prize in Short Fiction These are hyper-stylized fables of exiles—under bridges, holed up in bars before the hurricane hits, and cast among the uncomprehending innocent. Linking back to an eighteenth century grammar of predestination and forward to a twenty-first century resignation to forces beyond our understanding, Something in My Eye makes visible those we’d rather not see, according them all the tenderness the world withholds. Winner of the Mary McCarthy Prize in Short Fiction. Michael J. Lee lives in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he earns his living as a typist, waiter, and nightclub singer. A frequent contributor to Conjunctions, he is also an associate fiction editor at the New Orleans Review. He is at work on a novel.
Michael J. Lee writes like a redneck Samuel Beckett, sketching dystopias of life along the margins in contemporary New Orleans.

Sallie Bingham

Praise for Sallie Bingham: “Sallie Bingham binds her collection together with sheer talent. The title novella is absolutely first-rate—a skillfully suggestive amalgam of Katherine Mansfield and Eudora Welty. This same unblinking gaze is hard at work on the essential weakness and dependence of men (‘The Banks of the Ohio’ and ‘The Ice Party’), the illusion of freedom that comes with divorce (‘Bare Bones’), and the desperate terror of adolescent love (‘Winter Term’).” —James R. Frakes, The New York Times Book Review “Sallie Bingham’s characters scrutinize their relationships with children, lovers, and their own treacherous souls. . . . Nearly every one of these flinty stories is a tiny masterpiece.”—Entertainment Weekly “Hardened but not compromised by adult life, these luminous stories . . . feature narrators who find mature, often solitary forms of reckoning, and even happiness. . . . There is not a false note in Bingham’s striking collection.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “These engaging tales span landscape, gender, and age, and readers will treasure Bingham’s strikingly perceptive composition and refined, clever flashes of detail and clarity.”—Booklist Sallie Bingham published her first novel with Houghton Mifflin in 1961. Since then she has published four collections of short stories, four novels, and a memoir. She was book editor for The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky, and has been a director of the National Book Critics Circle. She is the founder of The Kentucky Foundation for Women.

Max Décharné
“As rip-roaring and exciting as the records and singers he eulogizes.”—Mojo A Rocket in My Pocket charts the rise (and fall) of the original 1950s wave of rockabillies. It follows the progress of the music—in clubs, on radio, TV, and film, pinpointing the key record labels and important regional centers, showing how fashions changed and left rockabilly high and dry—far too wild and primitive in an era of smoother sounds. Max Décharné traces the music from its beginnings with the flamboyant Sun Sessions of Elvis in Memphis in 1954. Max Décharné is a writer and musician from London, England.

South End Press Stand Up!
The Shifting Politics of Racial Uplift

Edited by Kenyon Farrow and Jared Sexton

We can do it ourselves, yes we can! If we go fluorescent and pull up our boots (along with our pants), we can prevent global warming, halt the cradle to prison pipeline, even outwit global capital. We are DIY. And have to be; it’s clear the government won’t do it for us. Such is the rallying cry taken up, both in earnest and tongue-in-cheek, by organizers, activists, and politicians of many stripes. Such also is the rhetoric of those who preach racial uplift, among whose boosters are NPR’s Tavis Smiley, black megachurches, and the iconic Bill Cosby. It’s this tradition that Stand Up! The Shifting Politics of Racial Uplift interrogates. Bound for controversy, Stand Up! rigorously examines the re-emergence of racial uplift politics, identifying its possibilities and its paradoxes: Have the new advocates of self-help—including but not limited to those championing “the politics of respectability”—been able to transcend the anti-democratic politics, class elitism, misogyny, and homophobia that have often plagued such movements? Moreover, can politics with allies like Wal-Mart truly promote social justice? How and why have corporate and governmental institutions jumped on this bandwagon? Does a politics preaching self-reliance inherently further politically and economically conservative aims? Ultimately, Stand Up! reveals where help helps and where it hurts, so that all those invested in collective uplift can demand policies that democratize power and wealth, instead of being satisfied with black firsts and post-race millionaires. Kenyon Farrow, the co-editor of Letters from Young Activists, is a founding board member of FIERCE. Jared Sexton, author of Amalgamation Schemes: Antiblackness and the Critique of Multiracialism, is a professor at University of California, Irvine.
In a world proclaimed post-racial, do black bootstrap politics defang demands for equity, or mobilize energy to attain it?

South End Press Red Dirt Revival
a poetic memoir in 6 breaths

Tim’m T. West

MEMOIR / POETRY March 5⅜ x 8½ | 176 pp Trade Paper US $15.00 | CAN $17.50 978-0-89608-799-6 USC

Tim’m T. West has been hailed by James Earl Hardy for “merging the floetry of Jay-Z and Nikki Giovanni” and by Jan Clausen for “[carrying] forward Audre Lorde’s practice of poetry as the ‘light by which we scrutinize our lives.’” Now an underground classic, Red Dirt Revival introduced a stunning talent in the tradition of poet-truthtellers such as Audre Lorde, Cherríe Moraga, and Adrienne Rich, and helped build Tim’m T. West’s loyal fan base among music lovers, academics, poets, activists, and anyone who has experienced alienation even in the place they call home. A Gen-X remix of Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, it tells the story of a burgeoning artist growing up poor, black, and queer in the rural south, and coming of age in the halls of feminist academe and the world of underground hip hop. In a voice that trembles with both vulnerability and swagger, West’s sharply observed memoir is charged with love, anger, eroticism, betrayal, forgiveness, and more love still, and demands that we radically expand our notions of what critical theory and liberation might look like. Like fragments from a radical notebook or a broken heart that refuses to stop beating, Red Dirt Revival disinters—from “commonsense” understandings of how men are made from boys—the senseless violence that patriarchal visions of gender, race, sexuality, family, and the world requires. Now in an expanded, critical tenth-anniversary edition, this important contribution to feminist thought reads like a working artist’s lyric journal, all while bearing the terror, grace, and radical imagination of an entire generation. Tim’m T. West is a nationally recognized writer, emcee, poet, educator, and POZ activist. Co-founder of the acclaimed hip hop group Deep Dickollective, which helped launch the homo hop movement, West is the author of three books and has released three solo albums, including Songs of Red Dirt.

South End Press La última generación
Prosa y poesía Spanish-Language Edition

Cherríe Moraga
“Vulnerable and wise, [The Last Generation] sets us yearning with the author ‘to be fully known and loved.’”—Library Journal “I adore Cherríe Moraga’s work. . . . She is absolutely essential.”—Junot Díaz At last available to US audiences in Spanish, Cherríe Moraga’s classic work La última generación (The Last Generation) is an electric mix of prose and poetry that continues conversations started in the beloved books This Bridge Called My Back and Loving in the War Years. Highly politicized and intensely personal, Moraga’s work dares to imagine the mythic nation Queer Atzlán: a brave vision for gender, sexuality, race, art, nationalism, and the politics of liberation. Moraga crosses literary genres to ruminate on the paradox of being at once inside and outside the myriad struggles and communities—interlocking and often at odds—that spur her art and activism. Speaking from her experience as a queer Chicana activist/artist, Moraga is committed to building a broad politic of solidarity and justice for all dispossessed people. With fierce honesty and incisive political analysis, Moraga offers more than an inspiring portrait of the struggle of an activist artist—she helps us see the world as it is and dream it up anew. One of the most influential feminist thinkers of her generation, Cherríe Moraga is the award-winning author of Loving in the War Years and co-editor, with Gloria Anzaldúa, of This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color. A renowned playwright, Moraga is currently artist-in-residence at Stanford University.
A searching work of poetic and political vision by one of the most respected writers of our time, now available in Spanish.

Talonbooks
Vancouver, Canada

Talon was founded as a high-school poetry magazine in Vancouver in 1963, moving to the University of British Columbia with its graduating students in 1965. By 1967, Talon Magazine had published the first works of so many young writers, it decided to become their book publisher. Starting with poetry, including the first book (Sticks & Stones) of Canada’s first poet laureate George Bowering, Talonbooks diversified into drama with Beverley Simons’ Crabdance, George Ryga’s The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, and James Reaney’s Colours in the Dark in 1969; into fiction with Jane Rule’s Desert of the Heart and Audrey Thomas’ Songs My Mother Taught Me in 1973; into Quebec literature in translation with Robert Gurik’s The Trial of Jean Baptiste M. and Michel Tremblay’s Les Belles Soeurs in 1975; and into nonfiction with the collected works of ethnographer Charles Hill-Tout, The Salish People, Volumes I–IV, in 1979. In the early 1980s, the press experimented with publishing several highly successful commercial titles, but returned to its original, exclusively literary mandate in 1985. Over the past two decades, Talon has diversified its literary list to include critical works on flashpoints in the Middle East and on global socioeconomic issues and politics. Talon’s dedication to the publication of over four decades of excellent Canadian literary work, published through an unbroken line of internal mentorship and succession of ownership in the company, has earned our publishing house the privilege of being one of the preeminent independent Anglophone literary presses in Canada. The largest independent publisher of drama in the country, we publish more translations from Quebec than anyone else, more Native voices than any other Canadian publisher, and our diverse list has come to include numerous works from the Japanese, Chinese, African, and South Asian Canadian communities. Our current books in print have garnered over three hundred awards.

Talonbooks Taking My Life
Jane Rule
Introduction by Linda Morra

Discovered in her papers as a handwritten manuscript in 2008, Jane Rule’s autobiography is a rich and culturally significant document that follows the first twenty-one years of her life. In writing about her formative years, she is indeed “taking” the measure of her life, assessing its contours of pleasure and pain, and accounting precisely for how it evolved, with great discretion and consideration for those who might have been affected by being represented in her work. She appreciated the ambiguity of the title she chose, with all its implications of suicide: at the end of her writing life, she was submitting herself to critical scrutiny, allowing herself to be vulnerable as a person to not only the literary and cultural, but also the moral and ethical critique of her readers. At turns deeply moving and witty, Taking My Life probes in emotional and intellectual terms the larger philosophical questions that were to preoccupy her throughout her literary career, and showcases the origins and contexts that gave shape to Rule’s rich intellectual life. Her autobiography will appeal to avid followers of her work, delighted to discover another of her works that has, until now, remained unpublished.

Réjean Ducharme
Translated by Will Browning
Teenagers Miles and Chateaugue have run away from home and soon form a suicide pact to preserve their fleeting innocence. Written in a style that echoes Arthur Rimbaud and William S. Burroughs, Réjean Ducharme’s vision is darkly prophetic of a world that has lost its way, on which “our lady of good help” only gazes with an inscrutable Mona Lisa smile. Réjean Ducharme is one of Quebec’s most influential authors, and also one of the province’s enigmas: the man has not been seen in public for over a decade.

Steve Galluccio’s newest stage triumph is a comedy set in 1952 Naples. It recounts how one broken engagement ripples throughout friends and family, affecting all of their respective lives in different ways. In a world conflicted by traditional values and postwar-era thinking, theatrical archetypes evolve into stereotypes that became hallmarks of the Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni films in the early 1960s. A favorite of the Montreal Fringe Festival, Steve Galluccio is a playwright with a delightful flair for comedy. His fast-paced plays are full of populist art, local references, and camp sensibility.

The Fate of German Civilians Under Allied Occupation, 1944–1950

James Bacque
More than nine million Germans died from deliberate Allied starvation and expulsion policies after WWII. Yet at the same time, a food-aid program organized by Herbert Hoover and Mackenzie King saved an estimated eight hundred million people. Never before had such revenge been known. Never before had such compassion been shown.

The Shape of a Girl / Jewel
Joan MacLeod

The Shape of a Girl examines the violence, code of silence, and tacit complicity that surrounds the sensationalized murder of Reena Virk by school-aged bullies in 1997. Jewel is based on the real-life catastrophe of the sinking of the Ocean Ranger, an oil rig off the coast of Newfoundland, in 1982.

Drew Hayden Taylor
This play by one of Canada’s best-loved Native playwrights raises powerful questions that transcend issues of culture, race, and history, cutting to the ethical quick of what it means to be human in a chaotic world stripped of the comfortable security of identity politics.

Les Belles Soeurs
Michel Tremblay
Translated by John Van Burek and Bill Glassco
Raucous, reckless, and ribald, Les Belles Souers celebrates the working-class lives of fifteen Montreal women. The first play written in joual, the vernacular French of Quebec, ever to achieve both popular success and critical acclaim, it established Michel Tremblay’s enduring literary reputation as “the father of the québécois language” in 1968.

The Ecstasy of Rita Joe
George Ryga

A Native girl full of hope and aspiration leaves her reservation for the promise of the city, only to die on skid row—a victim of white bigotry, racism, violence, and paternalism. This best known, most translated, and perennially successful Canadian play is a poetic drama of enormous theatrical power.

Morris Panych
In this fast-paced, sophisticated, hilarious play, a man contemplating suicide on a seventh-story ledge of a building engages the lives of the people who live there. Their “seven stories,” which alternately strengthen and undermine his resolve, lead to a charming surprise ending. CBC has called it “one of the best plays of the 1980s.”

is a door
Fred Wah
Grounded in his encounter with the smashed and broken doors along the hurricane-devastated waterfront of Telchac Puerto on the north coast of the Yucatàn peninsula, characteristically innovative and compositionally musical, Fred Wah’s prizewinning poetry watches both sides of the doorway—for the sudden question, the sudden turn, the sudden opening.

My Darling Nellie Grey
George Bowering

In December 2005, stalled on a novel he was writing, Canada’s first Poet Laureate made a New Year’s resolution: write a poem for every day of 2006. The result of this uncompromising personal and formal discipline has become one of the most fascinating books ever written in the English language.

Telegram Books Shake Off
Mischa Hiller

“Hiller recalls the cool detachment and compelling eye for the ordinary detail that characterised the early thrillers of Graham Greene.”—Independent on Sunday “Hiller’s fiction joins great Arabic novels such as Love in Exile by Bahaa Taher and Elias Khoury’s Gate of the Sun.”—Guardian “Powerful and thought-provoking, this is a book that stays with the reader. Mr Hiller’s Shake Off is hard to shake off.”—The Economist London 1989: Michel is an undercover PLO operative hooked on painkillers and posing as a student. He is tasked by mentor Abu Leila to find a venue for secret Palestinian–Israeli talks. But fellow student Helen, forbidden fruit in this clandestine world, is proving to be a distraction. Michel is forced to go on the run when he takes possession of a package smuggled out of the Occupied Territories and linked to an assassination in Berlin—a package that both the Israelis and the Palestinians are desperate to get hold of. From the streets of London, Cambridge, and Berlin to the remotest areas of Scotland, Michel must use his KGB training and Helen’s help to shake off his pursuers and stay one step ahead. Mischa Hiller was born in England in 1962 and grew up in London, Dar El-Salaam, and Beirut. His first novel, Sabra Zoo, won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book (Europe and South Asia) in March 2011. He lives in Cambridge, England.
On the run, Michel must use his spy-craft to shake off his pursuers and stay one step ahead.

Sjón
Translated by Victoria Cribb

“Achingly brilliant, an epic made mad, made extraordinary.”—Junot Díaz “Hallucinatory, lyrical, by turns comic and tragic, this extraordinary novel should make Sjón an international name. His evocation of seventeenth century Iceland through the eyes of a man born before his time has stuck in my mind like nothing else I’ve read in the last year.”—Hari Kunzru The year is 1635. Iceland is a world darkened by superstition, poverty, and cruelty. Men of science marvel over a unicorn’s horn, poor folk worship the Virgin in secret, and both books and men are burnt. Jónas Pálmason, a poet and self-taught healer, has been condemned to exile for heretical conduct, having fallen foul of the local magistrate. Banished to a barren island, Jónas recalls his gift for curing “female maladies,” his exorcism of a walking corpse on the remote Snjáfjöll coast, the frenzied massacre of innocent Basque whalers at the hands of local villagers, and the deaths of three of his children. Sjón was born in Reykjavik in 1962. He won the Nordic Council’s Literature Prize (the equivalent of the Man Booker Prize) for The Blue Fox, which was also longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize in 2009. Sjón was nominated for an Oscar for the song lyrics he wrote for Björk in the film Dancer in the Dark. His work has been translated into twenty-three languages.

Telegram Books My Animal Life
Maggie Gee

“A wise and beautiful book about what it feels like to be alive—I really loved it.”—Zadie Smith “Maggie Gee’s account of her life as a writer cuts to the bone as she relives triumphs, rejections, despair, and renewal. It’s a wonderful book, for its boldness and vigor, and for its piercing honesty.”—Claire Tomalin How do you become a writer, and why? Maggie Gee’s journey starts in a small family in post-war Britain, a long way from the literary world. At seventeen, Maggie goes, a lamb to the slaughter, to university. From the 1960s onwards she lives the defining events of her generation: the coming of the Pill and sexual freedom, tremors in the British layer-cake of class and race. In the 1980s, Maggie finally gets published, falls in love, marries, and has a daughter—but for the next three decades and beyond, she survives, and sometimes thrives, by writing. This frank, bold memoir dares to explore the big questions: success and failure, sex, death, and parenthood—our animal life. Maggie Gee was chosen as one of Granta’s original Best Young British Novelists. She has published many novels to great acclaim, including The White Family, shortlisted for the Orange and IMPAC prizes; My Cleaner; The Flood, longlisted for the Orange Prize; and The Ice People. She was the first female chair of the Royal Society of Literature from 2004–2008 and is now one of its vice presidents.

Aamer Hussein

“A thing of beauty. . . . You must read it.”—Nadeem Aslam “A shower of pleasures.”—Julia O’Faolain “Sophisticated, cosmopolitan, and seductive, the novel engages mind and senses alike.”—The Times Literary Supplement Like his parents, he too spent many hours sending cloud messages to other places, messages of longing for something that he knew existed otherwhere. London, that distant rainy place his father lived in once, is where Mehran finds himself after leaving Karachi in his teens. And it is there that his adult life unfolds: he discovers the joys of poetry, faces the trials of love and work, and spends his dreaming hours “sending cloud messages to other places,” hoping, one day, to tell his own story. A feeling of not quite belonging anywhere pursues Mehran as he travels to Italy, India, and Pakistan. But the relationships he forms—with wounded, passionate Marvi, volatile Marco, and the enigmatic Riccarda—and his power of recollection finally bring him some sense, however fleeting, of home.

Theatre Communications Group—Celebrating Fifty Years The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism & Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures
Tony Kushner
“The clear successor to Kushner’s masterpiece, Angels in America, picking up many of the same arguments about love, sexuality, and politics while adding many more.”—Minnesota Monthly “Sprawling, yearning . . . packed with a level of complexity, sophistication and understanding that distinguishes it as a potentially important new American work.”—Variety Tony Kushner returns to his big topics with trademark humor and passion in a play titled after two nineteeth-century treatises: George Bernard Shaw’s The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism and Mary Baker Eddy’s Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. In the Sumer of 2007, Gus Marcantonio, a retired longshoreman and cousin of the late congressman Vito Marcantonio, summons his three adult children to the family’s Brooklyn brownstone to vote on the question of his committing suicide. The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism & Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures explores revolution, radicalism, marriage, sex, prostitution, politics, real estate, unions of all kinds, and debts both unpaid and unpayable. Originally commissioned and produced by the Guthrie Theater, the play will premiere in the spring of 2011 in a co-production between New York’s Public and Signature theaters. Tony Kushner’s plays include A Bright Room Called Day; Angels in America, Parts One and Two; Slavs!; Homebody/Kabul; and the book and lyrics for Caroline, or Change. His honors include the Pulitzer Prize, two Tony Awards for Best Play, and three OBIE Awards for Playwriting.

Theatre Communications Group—Celebrating Fifty Years The Book of Grace
Suzan-Lori Parks

“[Suzan-Lori Parks’] dislocating stage devices, stark but poetic language and fiercely idiosyncratic images transform her work into something haunting and marvelous.”—Time “An original whose fierce intelligence and fearless approach to craft subvert theatrical convention and produce a mature and inimitable art that is as exciting as it is fresh.”—August Wilson Named one of the “100 Innovators for the Next New Wave” by Time magazine, Suzan-Lori Parks is a truly original voice of the American theater. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a MacArthur “Genius” Award, Parks is renowned for her groundbreaking language, theatricality, and an aesthetic that continues to evolve in unexpected ways. Her first full-length play since her award-winning Topdog/Underdog, The Book of Grace is a scorching three-person drama in which a young man returns home to south Texas to confront his father, unearthing deep-seated passions and ambition. The play premiered in spring 2010 at the Public Theater, where Parks is in the midst of a three-year residency as the first recipient of the theater’s master writer chair. Suzan-Lori Parks is a playwright, screenwriter, songwriter, and novelist. Her plays include Topdog/Underdog (winner of the 2002 Pulitzer Prize), In the Blood (a 2000 Pulitzer Prize finalist), Venus (OBIE Award winner) and Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom (OBIE Award, Best New American Play).

Theatre Communications Group—Celebrating Fifty Years By the Way, Meet Vera Stark
Lynn Nottage

“Nottage is one of our finest playwrights, a smart, empathetic and daring storyteller who tells a story an audience won’t expect.”—Time Out New York “Lynn Nottage’s work explores depths of humanness, the overlapping complexities of race, gender, culture, and history—and the startling simplicity of desire—with a clear tenderness, with humor, with compassion.”—Paula Vogel, winner of the Pulitzer Prize In her first new play since the critically acclaimed Ruined, Lynn Nottage examines the legacy of African Americans in Hollywood in a dramatic stylistic departure from her previous work. Fluidly incorporating film and video elements into her writing for the first time, Nottage’s comedy tells the story of Vera Stark, a headstrong African American maid and budding actress who has a tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold onto her career. Stirring audiences out of complacency by tackling racial stereotyping in the entertainment industry—a topic that remains largely unexplored in mainstream arts and entertainment—Nottage highlights the paradox of black actors in 1930s Hollywood while jumping back and forward in time and location in this uniquely theatrical narrative. Lynn Nottage’s plays include the Pulitzer Prize–winning Ruined; Intimate Apparel, the most widely produced play of the 2005–06 theater season in America; Fabulation, or the Re-Education of Undine; Crumbs from the Table of Joy; Las Meninas; Mud, River, Stone; Por’knockers; and POOF!

Theatre Communications Group—Celebrating Fifty Years Rabbit Hole (movie tie-in)
David Lindsay-Abaire

“David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a drama that’s not just a departure but a revelation—an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion, and searing honesty.”—Variety “The sad, sweet release of Rabbit Hole lies precisely in the access it allows to the pain of others, in its meticulously mapped empathy. This anatomy of grief doesn’t so much jerk tears as tap them, from a reservoir of feelings common to anyone who has experienced the landscape-shifting vacuum left by a death in the family.”—The New York Times David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer Prize–winning play, a thoughtful and penetrating rumination on grief and mourning, is now a major motion picture. This movie tie-in edition of the film from Lionsgate starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, and Dianne Wiest is a story of loss, heartbreak, and forgiveness—told through daily moments and emotional hurdles—as a family moves on after the accidental death of their four-year-old son. Following a critically acclaimed Broadway premiere in 2006, Rabbit Hole has been hailed as an artistic breakthrough for the highly regarded playwright. A drama of the aftermath of tragedy, it captures “the awkwardness and pain of thinking people faced with an unthinkable situation—and eventually, their capacity for survival” (USA Today). David Lindsay-Abaire is the author of Fuddy Meers, Kimberly Akimbo, A Devil Inside, and Wonder of the World, in addition to the books for the musicals High Fidelity and Shrek.

Theatre Communications Group—Celebrating Fifty Years Orlando/Three Sisters
Virginia Woolf and Anton Chekhov
Adapted by Sarah Ruhl

“[Ruhl’s Orlando] captures both the intellectual spirit and the literary brilliance of Woolf’s work. . . . Ruhl writes with the imaginative sweep that allows Woolf’s poetry to soar.”—Variety “Sarah Ruhl’s smart new translation [of Three Sisters] feels just right to contemporary American ears—lean, colloquial, and conversational for us and true to Chekhov’s original work.”—The Cincinnati Enquirer In her stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s gender-bending, period-hopping novel, award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl “is her usual unfailingly elegant, unbeatably witty self, cleverly braiding her own brand-name wit with Woolf’s” (New York magazine). Preserving Woolf’s vital ideas and lyrical tone, Ruhl brings to the stage the life of an Elizabethan nobleman who’s magically transformed into an immortal woman. In her fresh translation of Three Sisters, the Anton Chekhov classic of ennui and frustration, Ruhl employs her signature lyricism and elegant understanding of intimacy to reveal the discontent felt by fretful Olga, unhappy Masha, and idealistic Irina as they long to leave rural Russia for the ever-alluring Moscow. Sarah Ruhl’s other plays include the Pulitzer Prize finalists In the Next Room (or the vibrator play) and The Clean House, as well as Passion Play, Dean Man’s Cell Phone, Demeter in the City, Eurydice, Melancholy Play, and Late: a cowboy song. 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 in many theaters around the world.
Adaptations of two classic works through the unique lens of playwright Sarah Ruhl.

Theatre Communications Group—Celebrating Fifty Years Color of Desire/Hurricane
Two Plays by Nilo Cruz

Nilo Cruz

“The words of Nilo Cruz waft from the stage like a scented breeze. They sparkle and prickle and swirl, enveloping those who listen in both specific place and time . . . and in timeless passions that touch us all.”—The Miami Herald One of the United States’ most-produced Cuban American writers, Nilo Cruz employs his signature poetic imagery and vivid language to tender and humorous effect in this pair of his newest works. The Color of Desire, set in 1960 Havana, revolves around a passionate romance between an American businessman and an out-of-work Cuban actress. As the relationship becomes a metaphor for their countries’ ruptured love affair, Cruz artfully weds magical realism to a familial story that is touching, harrowing, and funny. In Hurricane, a damaged family—a fire-and-brimstone missionary; his wife, who he saved in more than the spiritual sense; and their adopted son, who seems to have materialized from the ocean—face a shocking crisis when a hurricane ravages their Caribbean town. A celebration of humility, generosity, and kindness, Cruz’s play explores the nature of identity, faith, and the redemptive power of love.

Totem Books Inflight Science
A Guide to the World From Your Airplane Window

Brian Clegg

Every moment of your airplane journey is an opportunity to experience science in action—Inflight Science will be your guide. Brian Clegg explains the everchanging view from your window seat, whether it’s crop circles or clouds, mountains or river deltas. He describes easy-to-do experiments to show how a wing provides lift, how to calculate how far away you are from distant objects, or the population of the towns you fly over. You’ll learn why the coastline is infinite in length, the cause of thunderstorms, and the true impact of volcanic ash on aircraft engines. Fascinating facts to discover include: • The jet stream winds are so fast that a plane travelling west to east within them can fly beyond the speed of sound. • The wingspan of a 747 is twice the distance flown by the Wright Flyer, the first powered plane, on its maiden flight. • There’s absolutely no chance of you getting stuck on an airline vacuum toilet! • The explanation for how an aircraft wing works was totally wrong for a long time. Packed full of amazing insights from physics, chemistry, engineering, geography, and more, Inflight Science is a voyage of scientific discovery perfect for any journey. Brian Clegg is the author of several popular science titles including Before the Big Bang and the forthcoming How to Build a Time Machine (2011), both from St. Martin’s Press. He lives in Wiltshire, England.
Enjoy science on view from the second you enter the airport to the moment you leave your airplane.

Trellis Publishing Being Bipolar
Stories from Those Living with the Disorder and Those Who Love Them

Edited by Rachel Ellen Koski
“The diagnosis of bipolar disorder is an opportunity, not a life sentence.” —Robert E. Soper, MD, Diplomate, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Excerpt from “Jinny’s Story”: That’s the hardest endeavor most days—finding balance. I really wish everyone could understand it is a physical problem in my brain due to chemical imbalances. I don’t want to be thought of as crazy or weak. I’m scared. I’m harsh enough on myself and I don’t need others judging me as well. Millions of lives are affected by bipolar disorder. Unique among thousands of titles on the subject, Being Bipolar presents powerful stories of those living with the disorder and from loved ones’ perspectives. Individual personal stories are written in their own words, unlike other books with their focus on medical information or one person’s life story. Personal experiences of pain, growth, fear, and hope are shared, seeking to give support and break through the misinformation and stigma associated with the disorder. Rachel Ellen Koski, an award-winning editor, is the story collector and edi– tor. She tells of more than thirty years of learning, accepting, and growing through her own challenges of being bipolar. “This is the book I wanted when first diagnosed and all along my journey, for myself and for my loved ones.”

Turtle Point Press Broken Irish
Edward J. Delaney

“In Edward J. Delaney’s South Boston little is lost, nothing forgotten. Old sins, old wounds haunt his characters, young and old, and reverberate throughout his wonderfully complicated plot. Broken Irish is an enthralling, satisfying novel.”—Margot Livesey “An entire community is on the brink. Hope is the only hope. And faith cannot scrub the grime off its hands. With Broken Irish, Edward J. Delaney delivers a gripping epic.”—Adam Braver Broken Irish is a passionately written novel about revenge, redemption, and alcoholism. It’s a story driven by character, community, and coincidence set in south Boston in the late 1990s, a time when even the local parish church is party to a scandal about to unravel. With tight control and a powerful narrative drive, Edward J. Delaney’s Broken Irish offers a vantage point from which to view the sad workings of an entire deteriorating society. The author tells his moving story in short chapters that are filled with incident and drive—jump cuts that can compete with any cleverly written HBO weekly series. Edward J. Delaney is the winner of a 2008 Literary Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, the 2005 L.L. Winship/PEN New England Award for fiction, and a past winner of the O.Henry Prize for short story writing. His work has been included in Best American Short Stories (edited by Jane Smiley) and he has been a finalist for the National Magazine Award. He has published short stories and essays in The Atlantic. In addition to a novel, Warp and Weft, and The Drowning and Other Stories, Delaney co-authored Born to Play by Boston Red Sox second baseman and 2008 American League Most Valuable Player Dustin Pedroia.

Turtle Point Press The Wilshire Sun
Joshua Baldwin

“Baldwin’s characters search for fame in the shape-shifting landscape of Hollywood. He has a voice that follows the mirage even after it disappears. The Wilshire Sun is a surreal, giddily original debut that plumbs the myth of Los Angeles.”—James Frey The Wilshire Sun is a mirthful novella about a whimsical, hapless, over-aspiring, under-achieving young writer from Brooklyn who moves to Los Angeles hoping to write for the movies. With understated deadpan humor and dynamic, sly, original language and off-kilter imagery, Joshua Baldwin has created a novella that may remind readers of an improbable roundtable meeting of Tao Lin, James Thurber, S.J. Perelman, and Jack Benny. The elements of the novella’s constitution—clipped pieces of fast-paced immediate narrative interspersed with epistolary matter and off-the-cuff riffs on junk food, screenwriting, Walt Whitman, big brothers, bum grandfathers, and crackpot friends—magically hang together and offer a delightfully absurd portrait of the artist as a young man for our times in the City of Angels. Joshua Baldwin was born in New York in 1984. He graduated from the college at the University of Chicago in 2006. He is the author of the chapbook Poems and Fake Book Reviews. His poetry and reviews have appeared in The Brooklyn Rail, Chicago Review, and Publishers Weekly. An excerpt from The Wilshire Sun appeared in Or 5, Otis College of Art and Design.

Turtle Point Press Dear Prudence
New and Selected Poems

David Trinidad
“This magnum opus confirms David Trinidad’s place in the poetic firmament: he is simply the best we have. A worthy successor to James Schuyler, Trinidad writes soulfully and sometimes photorealistically about the melancholy threshold where dolls and stars become inner objects—dirty, glamorous, destruc– tible. Jacqueline Susann meets Sei Shonagon? Trinidad manages to combine ¯ neo-formalist abstraction with dripping gorgeous figuration: Bonnard’s wet dream.”—Wayne Koestenbaum “This is a volume celebratory in tone, panoramic in scope, funny, and genuinely moving. Trinidad is at the center of what’s relevant in his art. And this collection is more vital and more enjoyable than any single performance he has given thus far.”—D.A. Powell “Trinidad attends to the present to see into the past with such needle point precision it’s like encountering a perfectly appointed movie set where personal memory crosses intimately with cultural memory. Poetic form in Trinidad’s hands is a metaphor for staking a claim on the material world even as it slips away in a shimmery Hollywood dissolve—a desperate, doomed reclamation of all that can never be held long enough.”—Robyn Schiff “Utterly deadpan and astonishingly fine” is how Publishers Weekly described the poems of David Trinidad. And here is the collection all David Trinidad fans have been waiting for—the first book to have works from all his previous books along with forty new poems: Dear Prudence: New and Selected Poems. David Trinidad, whose previous books include The Late Show, Plasticville, By Myself (with D.A. Powell) and Phoebe 2002 (with Lynn Crosbie and Jeffery Conway) teaches at Columbia College, Chicago, where he founded the journal Court Green. He is the editor of the recently released Collected Poems of Tim Dlugos as well as the co-editor (with Denise Duhamel and Maureen Seaton) of A Half-Century of Collaborative American Poetry.
The collection that David Trinidad fans have been anticipating for years—soulful works of tenderness, wit, and formal ingenuity.

Turtle Point Press What It Is Like
New and Selected Poems

Charles North

“Charles North is the master of multitasking—all experience opens to him at every moment—as well as the master tout court. He belongs on the summit of the American Parnassus.”—Harry Mathews “North is a younger compatriot of O’Hara and Ashbery, and his nonchalance aspiring to greatness finds the same ‘risks inside art’ that other poets found in the city. Juggling a satiric self-consciousness with a ‘strange mischief,’ North pulls death-defying propositions and playful mockeries from thin air.” —Publishers Weekly “The business of examining exactly what one means is central to North’s concept of the role of the poet, and he is especially alert to the way particulars and ideas interact in our constructions of meaning. The urge to hold out ‘particulars’ to the reader is mediated through an alert, sophisticated consciousness insistently aware of convention and genre.”—Mark Ford “The challenge of writing about the sensual qualities of New York City which seems so tired, by North’s pen becomes transcendent again. And that’s only one of the things his poetry accomplishes. He is witty when wit seems all but lost, gorgeous when gorgeousness is supposed to have crawled off to wherever Frank O’Hara’s odes come from.”—Ange Mlinko Charles North’s poetry has received high praise from a wide variety of aesthetic camps. Among his awards are a Foundation for Contemporary Arts grant, two National Endowment for the Arts grants, four Fund for Poetry Awards, and a Poets Foundation Award.
James Schuyler on Charles North: “To me, he is the most stimulating poet of his generation.”

Two Dollar Radio Damascus
Joshua Mohr

“[Mohr] has a generous understanding of his characters, whom he describes with an intelligence and sensitivity that pulls you in.”—The New York Times Book Review (editors’ choice) on Termite Parade It’s 2003 and the country is divided evenly for and against the Iraq War. Damascus, a dive bar in San Francisco’s Mission District, becomes the unlikely setting for a showdown between the opposing sides. Tensions come to a boil when Owen, the bar’s proprietor who has recently taken to wearing a Santa suit full-time, agrees to host the joint’s first (and only) art show by Sylvia Suture, an ambitious young artist who longs to take her act to the dramatic precipice of the high-wire by nailing live fish to the walls as a political statement. An incredibly creative and fully rendered cast of characters orbit the bar. There’s No Eyebrows, a cancer patient who has come to the Mission to die anonymously; Shambles, the patron saint of the hand job; Revv, a lead singer who acts too much like a lead singer; and Owen, donning his Santa costume to mask the most unfortunate birthmark imaginable. Damascus is the place where confusion and frustration run out of room to hide. By gracefully tackling such complicated topics as cancer, Iraq, and issues of self-esteem, Joshua Mohr has painted his most accomplished novel yet. Joshua Mohr is the San Francisco Chronicle best-selling author of Some Things That Meant the World to Me and Termite Parade, a New York Times Book Review editors’ choice selection.
An ambitious, uplifting, and vital new work that underlines Joshua Mohr’s relevance as a major American voice.

Two Dollar Radio Baby Geisha
Trinie Dalton

“If fiction were a giant transporter, I’d want to go to Trinie Dalton’s world.” —Los Angeles Times on Wide Eyed Baby Geisha is a collection of thirteen sexually-charged stories that roam from the Coney Island Ferris wheel to the Greek Isles. True to Trinie Dalton’s form, the stories in Baby Geisha are distinctly imagined while also representing a more grounded approach in the author’s style. There’s the Joan Didion-obsessed starving journalist of “Pura Vida,” struggling to maintain a relationship with her performance artist sisters (or anyone, for that matter), on assignment in Costa Rica to write an article on sloth-hugging. “Millennium Chill” is about a woman who discovers that her body heat is mysteriously linked to that of an elderly beggar. The story “War Foods” begins with these memorable lines: “‘Let’s go downtown and get some government cheese,’ my father used to say to my brother and I. He thought that was entertainment enough for the weekends he had us in his custody.” Baby Geisha serves to support Dalton’s reputation as a remarkable stylist and a very original artist. Trinie Dalton has authored and edited five books. Wide Eyed, Sweet Tomb, and A Unicorn Is Born are works of fiction. Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is and Mythtym are art compilations. She writes articles and reviews about books, art, and music. She teaches book arts and writing at Pratt and New York University, and is on the MFA fiction faculty at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Two Dollar Radio I’m Trying to Reach You
Barbara Browning

Praise for Barbara Browning’s The Correspondence Artist: “Intelligent. . . . A pleasure to read.”—Bookslut “A deft look at modern life that’s both witty and devastating.”—Nylon I was in Zagreb the day that Michael Jackson died. When I heard the news, the first thing I thought was, That’s it. That’s the first line of my novel. “I was in Zagreb the day that Michael Jackson died.” First Michael Jackson, then Pina Bausch. Next is Merce Cunningham. Gray Adams, a former dancer with the Royal Swiss Ballet at work on his dissertation at NYU, has a theory spurred by countless hours of YouTubebased procrastination: someone is killing these famous dancers! (And he may bear an uncanny resemblance to Jimmy Stewart, circa Vertigo.) I’m Trying to Reach You is a moving and candid contemporary look at how we process grief, as well as how we love and communicate with one another. In the author’s consideration of gender, race, and class, she also attempts to relate what it truly means to be an American in this modern age. Barbara Browning is the author of The Correspondence Artist. She teaches in the Performance Studies department at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She’s also a poet and dancer who lives in Greenwich Village with her son.
First Michael Jackson, then Pina Bausch and Merce Cunningham. . . . Is someone killing famous dancers? A witty, creative, and seductive mystery.

“The competition for the future of crime fiction is fierce, as it should be, but don’t take your eyes off Craig McDonald. He’s wily, talented and—rarest of the rare—a true original. He writes melancholy poetry that actually has melancholy poets wandering around, but don’t turn your backs on them, either. I am always eager to see what he’s going to do next.”—Laura Lippman The news is full of it: escalating tensions from illegal immigration, headless bodies hanging off bridges, and bounties placed on lawmen on both sides of the border. New Austin, Ohio, is a town grappling with waves of undocumented workers who exert tremendous pressure on schools, police, and city services. In the midst of the turmoil, three very different kinds of cops scramble to maintain control and impose order. But the rape and murder of a Mexican American woman triggers a brutal chain of events that threatens to leave no survivors. El Gavilan is a novel of shifting alliances and whiplash switchbacks. Families are divided and careers and lives threatened. Friendships and ideals are tested and budding love affairs challenged. With its topical themes, shades-of- gray characters, and dark canvas, El Gavilan is a novel for our charged times. Craig McDonald, author of the internationally acclaimed Hector Lassiter series, is an award-winning journalist, editor, and fiction writer. His short fiction has appeared in literary magazines and anthologies. His fiction and nonfiction have earned him nominations for the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, and Gumshoe awards. He resides in Ohio.
With its topical themes (immigration), shades-of-gray characters, and charged canvas, El Gavilan is a noir novel for our uncertain times.

Tyrus Books Hurt Machine
Reed Farrel Coleman

“The biggest mysteries in our genre are why Reed Coleman isn’t already huge, and why Moe Prager isn’t already an icon.”—Lee Child At a pre-wedding party for his daughter Sarah, Moe Prager is approached by his ex-wife and former PI partner Carmella Melendez. It seems Carmella’s estranged sister Alta has been murdered, but no one in New York City seems to care. Why? Alta, a FDNY EMT, and her partner had months earlier refused to give assistance to a dying man at a fancy downtown eatery. Moe decides to help Carmella as a means to distract himself from his own life and death struggle. Making headway on the case is no mean feat as no one, including Alta’s partner Maya Watson, wants to cooperate. Moe chips away until he discovers a cancer roiling just below the surface, a cancer whose symptoms include bureaucratic greed, sexual harassment, and blackmail. But is any of it connected to Alta’s brutal murder? Reed Farrel Coleman has won or been nominated for nearly every major award in crime fiction. His Moe Prager series was selected by NPR’s Maureen Corrigan for inclusion in her Best Of list.

KYOPO
Photographs by CYJO
Foreword by Marie Myung-Ok Lee Introduction by Julian Stallabrass
In modern, spare and elegant portraiture, artist Cindy Hwang (CYJO) highlights the diversity, identity, and immigration of the global kyopo, those of Korean descent that reside outside of the Korean Peninsula. CYJO decontextualizes her subjects to emphasize a sense of forced unity, allowing their spectrum of experience to contradict the apparent sameness of identity. Juxtaposed are the graduate student, the novelist, the activist, the architect. Through photographs and profiles, KYOPO challenges the idea of a monolithic, “authentic” Korean identity while stimulating exploration and a renewed perception of what it means to be both Korean and a citizen of the world.

Alejandro de Acosta and Joshua Beckman co-translated Carlos Oquendo de Amat’s 5 Meters of Poems. Beckman’s translation of Tomaž Šalamun’s Poker was a finalist for the PEN/America translation award.

Deliberately anachronistic and delightfully extractable, the microgram is a metaphor itself for that which is well worth the digging.

Sayeh shows tremendous range, from the inward, spare lyric to bardic incantations that roll off the tongue and resonate with the voice of the whole nation, blending traditional Persian verse in the spirit of Rumi and Ha fez with issues ¯ of contemporary Iranian society.

Still Life
Alexander Long

“There is nothing ‘still’ in the remarkably visceral poems of Alexander Long’s third collection, Still Life, and nothing is at rest in these restless and edgy poems. Conversational and kinetic, these poems chart the traces left by the shifting overlays of the templates of literature, rock-and-roll, and contemporary culture. As each poem in Still Life attempts to fix a focus upon a scene or subject, the protean natures under view draw the poet into the eddies and complexities of reflection. This is a powerful and moving collection of poems.”—David St. John

Zephyr Press China’s Lost Decade
Gregory B. Lee

The period in China’s recent history between the death of Mao and the debacle of 1989 can be seen as a long decade, but also historically as a “lost” decade. It is “lost” in the sense that the political engagement of intellectuals and makers of culture was erased by China’s official history makers; it is also “lost” in that its memory has been abandoned even by many who lived through it; “lost” also in the embarrassed silence of those who prefer to focus on the subsequent economic miracle of the 1990s that gave rise to today’s more prosperous China; and “lost” as a time of opportunity for cultural and political change that ultimately did not happen. The relevance of the lost decade to China’s living, if untold, history was once more made clear by the conferral of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize on Liu Xiaobo, a political activist since 1989, and by the awarding of the 2010 Neustadt literature prize to the poet Duoduo whose poetry and personal trajectory loom large in Gregory B. Lee’s book. Gregory B. Lee was educated in London and Peking. He has taught at the universities of Cambridge, London, Chicago, Hong Kong, and Lyon, and is currently chair professor of Chinese and transcultural studies at City University of Hong Kong. He is the author of Dai Wangshu: The Life and Poetry of a Chinese Modernist; Troubadours, Trumpeters, Troubled Makers: Lyricism, Nationalism and Hybridity in China and Its Others; and Chinas Unlimited: Making the Imaginaries of China and Chineseness.

Zephyr Press A Phone Call from Dalian
Selected Poems of Han Dong

Han Dong
Edited and translated by Nicky Harman
In a 1989 interview, Han Dong declared that he wrote poetry for nobody, not even himself. He likens the poet to a roofer: “I write poetry for the constitution of poetry, just as a roofer gives no thought to who lives in the house whose roof he is covering—he builds to meet the criteria of what a house is. Poetry is not subordinate to purposes beyond itself: its highest purpose is to be without purpose.” So–and–so’s come to a sad end . . .” In the gloom, he smiles gently, lovingly As if to say I can rely on him in this world of nothingness “But the thing is, we could never be sure . . .” “We probably should” and “Possibly”. . . Earnest words like the thread in a foster mother’s hand As she darns a monk’s ragged robe That’s a story that can’t be darned “Poor man!”—The thread is knotted But the knot in my heart tries to pass through the needle’s eye The tree leaves at dusk have an oily gleam Han Dong was born in 1961 in Nanjing, where he continues to work as a fulltime writer. He is also a respected novelist—his first, published in translation as Banished! by University of Hawai‘i Press, was longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize 2008. Nicky Harman lives in the United Kingdom. Besides translation work, Harman is active on the Chinese translated fiction website Paper Republic and in literary translation organizations in the United Kingdom.
