New releases.

Percival Everett’s most recent novel is finally in stock: I Am Not Sidney Poitier. Regular customers will know that Peter Handke’s Crossing the Sierra de Gredos has been featured in the store for awhile, but deserves a mention here. Christine Schutt’s All Souls, her only full length novel since Florida is in, wrapped in a horribly generic cover which in no way reflects the contents of this weirdest of all girl’s private school novels. Humanimal: A Project for Future Children, Bhanu Kapil’s poetic essay and treated ‘travel document’ based in the well known 1920 discovery of two girls living with wolves is back in stock.

Commonwealth, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri’s eagerly awaited followup to Empire (published in 2000) is now available. The only collection of writing to intelligently address Michael Jackson as an aesthetic and social phenomena The Resistable Demise of Michael Jackson, edited by Mark Fischer (a.k.a. k-punk) is in quantity. An easily overlooked art book Steve Wolfe on Paper just arrived: he makes mouth watering screen print reproductions of worn vintage modern paperbacks. Finally, fans of Joe Sacco should know that both his most recent graphic novels are here, Fixer and Footnotes in Gaza along with Dash Shaw’s amazing The Unclothed Manonpaper
