Claudia Rankine - Plot Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Her third collection of poetry, Claudia Rankine's Plot is original and enchanting, and the language, as in her acclaimed The End of the Alphabet, never ceases to startle and confront. Plot is a postmodern dialogue about pregnancy and childbirth. Liv, the expectant mother, and her husband, Erland, find themselves propelled into one of our most basic plots -- boy loves girl, girl gets pregnant. Liv's respect for life, however, makes her reluctant to bring a new life into the world. The couple's electrifying journey is charted through dreams, conversations, and reflections. A text like no other, it crosses genres, existing at times in poetry, at times in dialogue and prose, in order to arrive at new life and baby Ersatz. This stunning, avant-garde performance enacts what it means to be human, and to invest in humanity.

Miles Traveled Down Love's Highway Street Light Dreams

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Like a classic Picasso painting, his literary genius doesn't just leap off the pages-it gets into the heart and soul of the reader. Mirroring the style and prose of literary greats such as Robert Frost, Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou, Kefentse Booth not only paints vivid pictures with his choice of words-he immerses the reader so deep into the situation at hand that they hardly ever have time to come up for fresh air. His undeniable love for music and passion for the written (and spoken) word shape his sentences into rhythmic compositions that leave readers craving more long after they've turned the last page. Raised by a Detroit public school educator, Booth's poetic infatuation sprouted at a very young age-landing him a poetry feature in The Michigan Chronicle, Detroit's oldest African-American newspaper, at the age of twelve. His obsession with the concept of love, coupled with his strong interest in community affairs and social conscious topics, led him to compile essay-style narrations, which catapulted him into writing competitions as early as high school. Supported by teachers and family, Booth soon excelled in numerous writing contests, where he greater honed his skills and learned how to engage audiences of all diversities. Even when he attended Tuskegee University, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Booth not only played sports consistently-but he continued to pursue his exposition as he wrote about the parallels of love and life. In his debut book, Miles Traveled Down Love's Highway, Booth takes readers on a journey of life lessons and the reality of relationships. No matter where readers choose to get on this sensual highway, they will experience pain, pleasure and fiery passion-even if they only read one excerpt. Written from a personal perspective of his past mishaps, mistakes and misfits, Booth strives to intertwine the realistic, yet unexpected love life of the average reader-allowing readers worldwide to not only see themselves, but feel themselves in the moment. Because of his great love for all things literary, Booth founded Street Light Dreams, LLC, where he cultivates and educates writers to pursue their passion and become published authors. He resides with his wife, Fallon, in the surrounding metropolitan Detroit area.

Benjamin Parzybok - Couch Big Mouth House

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Couch hits on an improbable, even fantastic premise, and then rigorously hews to the logic that it generates, keeping it afloat (at times literally) to the end." -Los Angeles Times "Delightfully lighthearted writing...Occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, the enthusiastic prose carries readers through sporadic dark moments ...Parzybok's quirky humor recalls the flaws and successes of early Douglas Adams."-Publishers Weekly "The book succeeds as a conceptual art piece, a literary travelogue, and a fantastical quest." -Willamette Week "Hundreds of writers have slavishly imitated-or outright ripped off-Tolkien in ways that connoisseurs of other genres would consider shameless. What Parzybok has done here in adapting the same old song to a world more familiar to the reader is to revive the genre and make it relevant again" -The Stranger A Spring Summer Indie Next Reading List Pick: Top 10 Reading Group Suggestions "Couch follows the quirky journey of Thom, Erik, and Tree as they venture into the unknown at the behest of a magical, orange couch, which has its own plan for their previously boring lives. Parzybok's colorful characters, striking humor, and eccentric magical realism offer up an adventuresome read." -Christian Crider, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL A January 2009 Indie Next List Pick "This funny novel of furniture moving gone awry is a magical realism quest for modern times. Parzybok's touching story explores the aimlessness of our culture, a society of jobs instead of callings, replete with opportunities and choices but without the philosophies and vocations we need to make meaningful decisions." -Josh Cook, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA "A lot of people are looking for magic in the world today, but only Benjamin Parzybok thought to check the sofa, which is, I think, the place it's most likely to be found. Couch is a slacker epic: a gentle, funny book that ambles merrily from Coupland to Tolkien, and gives couch-surfing (among other things) a whole new meaning." -Paul La Farge "One of the strangest road novels you'll ever read. It's a funny and fun book, and it's also a very smart book. Fans of Tom Robbins or Christopher Moore should enjoy this." -Handee Books "It is an upholstered Odyssey unlike any other you are likely to read. It is funny, confusing in places, wild and anarchic. It is part Quixote, part Murakami, part Tom Robbins, part DFS showroom. It has cult hit written all over it." -Scott, Me and My Big Mouth Benjamin Parzybok on tour: http://booktour.com/author/benjamin_parzybok In this exuberant and hilarious debut reminiscent of The Life of Pi and Then We Came to the End, an episode of furniture moving gone awry becomes an impromptu quest of self-discovery, secret histories, and unexpected revelations. Thom is a computer geek whose hacking of a certain Washington-based software giant has won him a little fame but few job prospects. Erik is a smalltime con man, a fast-talker who is never quite quick enough on his feet. Their roommate, Tree, is a confused clairvoyant whose dreams and prophecies may not be completely off base. After a freak accident fl oods their apartment, the three are evicted-but they have to take their couch with them. The real problem? The couch-huge and orange-won't let them put it down. Soon the three roommates are on a cross-country trek along back roads, byways, and rail lines, heading far out of Portland and deep into one very weird corner of the American dream. Benjamin Parzybok is the creator of Gumball Poetry, a journal published through gumball machines, and the Black Magic Insurance Agency, a city-wide mystery/treasure hunt. He has worked as a congressional page, a ghostwriter for the governor of Washington, a web developer, a Taiwanese factory technical writer, an asbestos removal janitor, and a potato sorter. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with the writer Laura Moulton and their two children.

I Was Albert Schweitzer's Secret Mistress Blue Light Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this charming and delightful collection of poetry and prose, we are taken through the imaginative journey of a child in rural Wisconsin, a young nurse's experiences in Alaska, and contented married life in northern California. Along the way, we experience the smooth feel of wooden buttons, the smell of prairie grass, the Alaskan northern lights, the frothy waves of the Pacific Coast, and the thick fur of a shaggy dog, all seen through the kind, observant eyes of this gentle poet. This is a book to be savored and treasured like an old friendship. ~~~~ Michelle Demers, Author of Epicenter ~~~~ These are generous poems, rich with unusual associations drawn from daily life and vividly observed memories. More than any poet I have read, Judy Liese is able to reconstruct the ways of being and seeing in childhood. We read of a child who studies a rendered cow, looking deep into the interior for that place where her life once resided...and later learn that a young woman's yes realigns the cosmos. There is confidence, complexity, humor and a deep, almost uncanny connection with all of nature, but especially with animals in Judy Liese's frank, well-grounded way of being in a world where something stirs, ancient, patient, older than earth. She is not afraid to remember where she (or we) came from or wonder where she (or we) might be going. ~~~~ Mary Kay Rummel, Poet Laureate of Ventura County, California Author of What's Left Is The Singing ~~~~ ~~~~ Judy Liese's poetry brims with tenderness and compassion. In this autobiographical collection, she illuminates with clarity and precision the spaces that punctuate the various stages of her life. Her vision sometimes seems to come from outside herself, as in her poem, "My Mother's Wooden Buttons," where she writes, "I see my little yellow dress standing by itself as if made of cardboard." Love, grief, humor, and sensuous images abound. Family, friends, horses, and even earthworms are among her muses. Of her beloved dog Fargo she writes, "He teaches us the benefits of an open heart." And in poem after poem, her writing does the same. ~~~~ Paul Fisher, Author of Rumors of Shore ~~~~ Judy Liese grew up in Wisconsin and began writing poems as soon as she learned to print in block letters in her Big Chief writing pad. As a child, she wrote poems to entertain her friends and family. After graduating from Appleton Senior High School, she studied to be an R.N. at Columbia Hospital School of Nursing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After earning her R.N. degree, she accepted a job as a psychiatric nurse in Anchorage, Alaska, where she survived the 1964 earthquake and got married. For many years she worked as a nurse and wrote poetry, taking writing classes when she could. In her fifties, she earned a B.A. in Literature and a Master's Degree in English and Creative Writing from Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa. Retired now, Judy and Gary, her husband of fifty years, live in Northern California to be close to their son. She has poems published in Lyrical Iowa, as well as in several anthologies. This is her first full-length book of poems.

Divine Mimesis - 2837894457

Divine Mimesis Contra Mundum Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Written between 1963 and 1967, The Divine Mimesis, Pasolini's imitation of the early cantos of the Inferno, offers a searing critique of Italian society and the intelligentsia of the 1960s. It is also a self-critique by the author of The Ashes of Gramsci (1957) who saw the civic world evoked by that book fading absolutely from view. By the mid-1960s, Pasolini theorized, the Italian language had sacrificed its connotative expressiveness for the sake of a denuded technological language of pure communication. In this context, he projects a 'rewrite' of Dante's Commedia in which two historical embodiments of Pasolini himself occupy the roles of the pilgrim and guide in their underworld journey. Densely layered with poetic and philological allusions, and illuminated by a parallel text of photographs that juxtapose the world of the Italian literati to the simple reality of rural Italian life, this narrative was curtailed by Pasolini several years before he sent it to his publisher, a few months prior to his murder in 1975. Yet, many of Pasolini's projects took the provisional form of "Notes toward..." an eventual work, such as Sopralluoghi in Palestina (Location Scouting in Palestine), Appunti per una Oresteiade africana (Notes for an African Oresteia), and Appunti per un film sull'India (Notes for a Film on India). The Divine Mimesis has a kinship to these filmic works as Pasolini himself ruled it 'complete' though still in a partial form. Written at a turning point in his life when he was wrestling with his poetic 'demons,' the true center of gravity of Pasolini's Dantean project is the potential of poetry to teach and probe, ethically and aesthetically, in reality. "I wanted to make something seething and magmatic," Pasolini declared, "even if in prose." In this first English translation of Pasolini's La divina mimesis, Italianist Thomas E. Peterson offers historical, linguistic, and cultural analyses that aim to expand the discourse about an enigmatic author considered by many to be the greatest Italian poet after Montale. Published by Contra Mundum Press one year in advance of the 40th anniversary of Pasolini's death. * In the history of twentieth-century poetry, there is no other poet besides Pasolini who has more tenaciously interrogated his own 'I,' more persistently contemplated it, admired it, examined it, analyzed it and dissected it in order then to show its suffering entrails to the world, as they beg for understanding, affection, and pity. - Giorgio Bŕrberi Squarotti *

Dream Prints Eastern Washington University Press,U.S.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From domestic commonplaces Loretta Bonnier Anawalt has invented a surreal evocation in prose and verse poems, presented as a pattern of dreams "printed" on the mind as one might observe images emerging in a photographer's darkroom. The cohesive intelligence is that of the mature woman, observant, reflective, speculative, larger-than-life in a world that affords ample matter for her voracious imagination. Anawalt's sequence of poems is accompanied by a series of paintings by the eminent artist Robert Helm. With his own original surrealism, Helm's works counterpoint the poetry by their distanced repose, and the Jungian resonances which require quite a different kind of response to those we bring to the Freudian passions of the printed pages. Yet they have much in common with Anawalt's poetry, in the ways they play upon our expectations with juxtaposed and disjunctive images, and refuse to yield to trite or superficial perusal. Here, art and literature intertwine to provide great evocative power, mystery, and timeless intellectual pleasures. Loretta Anawalt is a Northwest writer whose song lyrics were used in the Merchant/Ivory film Mr. and Mrs. Bridge. Her short stories, mythic fiction, and poetry have appeared in many Northwest and Midwest journals and anthologies.

China's Golden Age BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Tang Dynasty (618-907), traditionally regarded as the goldenage of China, was a time of patricians and intellectuals, Buddhist monks and Taoist priests, poetry and music, song and dance. In China's Golden Age: Everyday Life in the Tang Dynasty, Charles Benn paints a vivid picture of the lifestyle behind the grandeur of the Tang culture. All aspects of day-to-day life are presented, including crime, entertainment, fashion, marriage, food, hygiene, dwellings, and transportation. Attend an ancient feast to celebrate an imperial birthday, where ale was served in elaborate pitchers before a meal of fourteen hors d'oeuvres and twenty-three courses. Learn which colors concubines used for their eye makeup and beauty marks, and what their jealous wives did to discourage such enhancement. See the similarities between today's pubs and the Tang alehouses, where women were hired to dance and sing to encourage patrons to stay longer and spend more money. Decide for yourself why Yangzhou, a city on the Grand Canal close to the Yangtze River, was considered one of the greatest cities in the Tang Dynasty.Benn translates and paraphrases his classical Chinese sources from the Tang era with fresh and polished prose. He also includes his own illustrations of everything from tools and hairstyles to musical instruments and courtyard dwellings. A history of the rise and fall of the dynasty is presented, as is a look at the societal structure of the aristocracy, bureaucracy, eunuchs, clergy, peasants, artisans, merchants, and slaves. This thorough explanation provides fascinating insight into a culture and time that is often misunderstood by Westerners and brings alive both the everyday routine and the timeless splendor of this intellectually and artistically powerful epoch. Enjoy your journey in China's Golden Age, and come back to the present with a greater understanding of this amazing time.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In Falling Out of Time, David Grossman has created a genre-defying drama--part play, part prose, pure poetry--to tell the story of bereaved parents setting out to reach their lost children. It begins in a small village, in a kitchen, where a man announces to his wife that he is leaving, embarking on a journey in search of their dead son.The man-called simply the "Walking Man" --paces in ever-widening circles around the town. One after another, all manner of townsfolk fall into step with him (the Net Mender, the Midwife, the Elderly Maths Teacher, even the Duke), each enduring his or her own loss. The walkers raise questions of grief and bereavement: Can death be overcome by an intensity of speech or memory? Is it possible, even for a fleeting moment, to call to the dead and free them from their death? Grossman's answer to such questions is a hymn to these characters, who ultimately find solace and hope in their communal act of breaching death's hermetic separateness. For the reader, the solace is in their clamorous vitality, and in the gift of Grossman's storytelling - a realm where loss is not merely an absence, but a life force of its own.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids: an unforgettable odyssey into the mind of this legendary artist, told through the prism of cafés and haunts she has visited and worked in around the world.§§M Train is a journey through eighteen "stations." It begins in the tiny Greenwich Village café where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. We then travel, through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations: from Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul in Mexico, to a meeting of an Arctic explorer's society in Berlin; from the ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York's Far Rockaway that Smith buys just before Hurricane Sandy hits, to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud, and Mishima. Woven throughout are reflections on the writer's craft and on artistic creation, alongside signature memories including her life in Michigan with her husband, guitarist Fred Sonic Smith, whose untimely death was an irremediable loss. For it is loss, as well as the consolation we might salvage from it, that lies at the heart of this exquisitely told memoir, one augmented by stunning black-and-white Polaroids taken by Smith herself. M Train is a meditation on endings and on beginnings: a poetic tour de force by one of the most brilliant multiplatform artists at work today.§§From the Hardcover edition.
