New Releases [Jan. 31st, 2010]
Award winning translator, memoirist and novelist Bruce Benderson has a new fiction title, out from Semeiotext(e), Pacific Agony. The comic novel A Chapter of Hats by Machado de Assis is out in paperback. One of our best sellers of the new year is The Ghost in Love by Jonathan Carroll. Comes highly recommended by the likes of Johnathan Letham, Ed Park and Bruce Wagner. The much awaited biography Raymond Carver, a Writer’s Life by Carol Sklenicka has been in stock since November.
Keith Waldrop’s poetry collection Trancendental Studies, A Trilogy, for which he won the National Book Award is in stock, as is the aphoristic, open ended manifesto Notes on Conceptualisms from poets (and novelist in the latter case) Robert Fitterman and Vennessa Place, is in stock, published as part of Ugly Duckling Presse’s Dossier series. Venessa Place’s earlier books, the ‘short story’ Dies, and the novel La Medusa, from Fiction Collective 2 are in stock as well. The collection The Map as Art, Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography, edited by Katherine Harmon and published by Princeton Architectural is an amazing gift book, as well as being a serious study of the topic.
