Art of Subtext

$14.00
New/Used: New

Charles Baxter inaugurates The Art of, a new series on the craft of writing, with the wit and intelligence he brought to his celebrated book Burning Down the House: Essays on Fiction.

Fiction writer and essayist Charles Baxter's The Art of Subtext: Beyond Plot discusses and illustrates the hidden subtextual overtones and undertones in fictional works haunted by the unspoken, the suppressed, and the secreted. Using an array of examples from Melville and Dostoyevsky to contemporary writers Paula Fox, Edward P. Jones, and Lorrie Moore, Baxter explains how fiction writers create those visible and invisible details, how what is displayed evokes what is not displayed.

The Art of Subtext is part of The Art of series, a new line of books by important authors on the craft of writing, edited by Charles Baxter. Each book examines a singular, but often assumed or neglected, issue facing the contemporary writer of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. The Art of series means to restore the art of criticism while illuminating the art of writing.

GOOD WAR (P)

$18.95
New/Used: New
"The Good War", for which Studs Terkel won the Pulitzer Prize, is a testament not only to the experience of war but to the extraordinary skill of Terkel as interviewer. As always, his subjects are open and unrelenting in their analyses of themselves and their experiences, producing what People magazine has called "a splendid epic history of World War II." With this volume Terkel expanded his scope to the global and the historical, and the result is a masterpiece of oral history.

Moosewood Restaurant Table

$35.00

"It's Moosewood's world. We're just eating in it." --Christine Muhlke, The New York Times

The creators of America's beloved natural foods restaurant, Moosewood, are back with The Moosewood Restaurant Table, their new book with over 250 brand new, never-before-published recipes.

With the restaurant now in its fifth decade, the Moosewood chefs continue to remain faithful to the farm-to-table philosophy that has governed the restaurant since its founding, while also keeping an eye on today's gastro-trends. As they say "We've gotten to know our customers and readers pretty well... their curiosity and culinary IQ have grown exponentially...We've been on some adventures developing this book..." Indeed, they have, working with some less common fruits and vegetables that you might find in your CSA, like Romanesco broccoli and watermelon radishes. They've begun cooking with a wider variety of grains like freekeh and millet. All this experimentation has led them to some great new recipes:
Two Potato Tomato Curry
Cashew-Crusted Chickpea Burgers
Cuban Picadillo with Tofu
Pot Pies for Autumn
Winter and Spring
Butternut Latkes
Jamaican Jerk Tempeh Patties
and plenty more.

Of course, a Moosewood cookbook wouldn't be complete without desserts like Turkish Coffee Brownies, Orange Pistachio Cornmeal Cake or Cherry Tomato Upside Down Cake to mention just a few. Including a healthy number of both vegan and gluten-free recipes, The Moosewood Restaurant Table is the next classic from the restaurant that revolutionized natural eating in the US.

SOULS OF BLACK FOLK (P)

$5.00
New/Used: New
"The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line, " wrote W.E.B. Du Bois in The Souls of Black Folk, one of the most prophetic and influential works in American literature. First published in 1903, this eloquent collection of essays exposed the magnitude of racism in our society. The book endures today as a classic document of American social and political history: a manifesto that has influenced generations with its transcendent vision of change.
John Edgar Wideman observed: "Like Freud's excavations of the unconscious, Einstein's revelations of the physical universe, Marx's exploration of the economic foundations of social organization, Du Bois's insights have profoundly altered the way we look at ourselves."

TB - It Can't Happen Here

$7.00
New/Used: New
"The novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump's authoritarian appeal."--Salon

It Can't Happen Here

is the only one of Sinclair Lewis's later novels to match the power of Main Street, Babbitt, and Arrowsmith. A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America.

Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler's aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press.

Called "a message to thinking Americans" by the Springfield Republican when it was published in 1935, It Can't Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today's news.

With an Introduction by Michael Meyer
and an Afterword by Gary Scharnhorst

TB - Savage Economics: Walth, Poverty and the Temporal Walls of Caitalism

$48.95
New/Used: New

This innovative book challenges the most powerful and pervasive ideas concerning political economy, international relations, and ethics in the modern world.

Rereading classical authors including Adam Smith, James Steuart, Adam Ferguson, Hegel, and Marx, it provides a systematic and fundamental cultural critique of political economy and critically describes the nature of the mainstream understanding of economics. Blaney and Inayatullah construct a powerful argument about how political economy and the capitalist market economy should be understood, demonstrating that poverty is a product of capitalism itself. They address the questions:

  • Is wealth for some bought at the cost of impoverishing, colonizing, or eradicating others?
  • What benefits of wealth might justify these human costs?
  • What do we gain and lose by endorsing a system of wealth creation?
  • Do even "savage cultures" contain values, critiques, and ways of life that the West still needs?
  • Opening the way for radically different policies addressing poverty and demanding a rethink of the connections between political economy and international relations, this thought-provoking book is vital reading for students and scholars of politics, economics, IPE and international relations.

    TB - The Glass Castle

    $17.00
    New/Used: New
    Now a major motion picture from Lionsgate starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

    MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST
    The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, "nothing short of spectacular" (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world's most gifted storytellers.

    The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette's brilliant and charismatic father captured his children's imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn't want the responsibility of raising a family.

    The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered.

    The Glass Castle is truly astonishing--a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.
