Domestic Scenes: The Art of Ramiro Gomez
23,79 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Award-winning author Lawrence Weschler's book on the young Mexican American artist Ramiro Gomez explores questions of social equity and the chasms between cultures and classes in America. Gomez, born in 1986 in San Bernardino, California, to undocumented Mexican immigrant parents, bridges the divide between the affluent wealthy and their usually invisible domestic help-the nannies, gardeners, housecleaners, and others who make their lifestyles possible-by inserting images of these workers into sly pastiches of iconic David Hockney paintings, subtly doctoring glossy magazine ads, and subversively slotting life-size painted cardboard cutouts into real-life situations. Domestic Scenes engages with Gomez and his work, offering an inspiring vision of the purposes and possibilities of art.

The Minus Times Collected: Twenty Years / Thirt...
17,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Begun as an open letter to strangers and fellow misfits, 'The Minus Times' grew to become a hand-typed literary magazine that showcased the next generation of American fiction. Contributors include Sam Lipsyte, David Berman, Patrick DeWitt, and Wells Tower, with illustrations by David Eggers and Brad Neely as well as interviews with Dan Clowes, Barry Hannah, and a yet-to-be-famous Stephen Colbert. With sly humor and striking illustrations, 'The Minus Times' has earned a fervent following as much for its lack of literary pretension as its sporadic appearances on the newsstand. All thirty of the-nearly-impossible-to-find issues of this improvised literary almanac are now assembled for the first time, typos and all.

The Remf Returns
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please welcome back David Willson's REMF, an altogether different kind of war story charcter. In The REMF Returns, Willson continues his story of the office-based soldier who never fires a shot in anger- and whose days are pervaded by the moral and spiritual twilight of life in the rear echelon of a shooting war. Willson's sly humor and carefully stylized minutiae of daily life in the Army join to make this book an important document in an area rarely confronted in our literature of Vietnam.

Unhurried Vision
17,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Poetry. Underneath the art of poetry exists the tradition of the journal -- the attempt to capture and reveal the world as it passes by. Observations, reflections, and ideas accumulate to form connections and reveal process, content and story. UNHURRIED VISION is a record of the year 1999, and continues Michael Rothenberg's experiment with the journal. This is the year Philip Whalen became terminally ill and Rothenberg began taking care of him, pulled together Whalen's archives and library and edited his book of selected poems, Overtime. 'Rothenberg's raw footage is disarming; sly, self-effacing, proclaiming, doubting, affirming. You can read it in one sitting, say blurbologists, but it takes at least a lifetime. & then what?'--David Meltzer.

The Whispering Muse
5,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The year is 1949 and Valdimar Haraldsson, an eccentric Icelander with elevated ideas about the influence of fish consumption on Nordic civilisation, has had the singular good fortune to be invited to join a Danish merchant ship on its way to the Black Sea. Among the crew is the mythical hero Caeneus, disguised as the second mate. Every evening after dinner he entrances his fellow travellers with the tale of how he sailed with the fabled vessel the Argo on the Argonauts' quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece. A master storyteller, Sjón seamlessly blends seafaring yarns of the ancient world with the manners of the modern age. 'The Whispering Muse is a quirky, melodic, ticklish, seamlessly-translated, lovingly-polished gem of a novel. Sjón's work deserves space on any self-respecting bookshelf of European fiction.' David Mitchell 'Sjón writes like a man under a spell, filled with enchantment and magic and great wit. He is a rogue of the first order.' Keith Donohue 'The Whispering Muse is a wonderful story about stories, evoking comparisons to Borges, Nabakov and Calvino while remaining a complete original. Sly, dry and elegant, with a diamond brilliance' Chris Wilson 'An extraordinary, powerful fable - a marvel' Alberto Manguel 'An extraordinary and original writer' A.S. Byatt

Pandorama
9,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ian Duhig's erudite, compassionate and often wonderfully droll poetry sits at the intersection of the literary and folk traditions, and moves in an easy and masterly fashion between them. While this has lent his verse an enviable musicality and force, it has also written him a visa to places poets rarely venture. In Pandorama, Duhig has mined poems and songs from the work-camps of England's itinerant navvies, jihadist training-grounds on the Yorkshire moors, football terraces, and meetings of the National Fancy Rat Society - and has painted a far truer picture of Britain's cultural diversity than most documentary accounts are able to give us. It is also one we would rather not confront. Duhig was always an elegist of great power, but never more so than in the quiet and focused anger with which he memorializes the tragic figure of David Oluwale, a Nigerian immigrant whose appalling racial harassment led to his death. With Pandorama, poetry's finest social historian has delivered a riveting book, its vision as broad and unsettling as its title suggests. 'The most original poet of his generation' Carol Ann Duffy, Guardian 'His poetry is learned, rude, elegant, sly and funny, mixing gilded images, belly-laughs and esoteric lore about language (including Irish), art, history, politics and children's word-games' Ruth Padel, Independent on Sunday
