Amitava Kumar's Every Day I Write the Book is for academic writers what Annie Dillard's The Writing Life and Stephen King's On Writing are for creative writers. Alongside Kumar's interviews with an array of scholars whose distinct writing offers inspiring examples for students and academics alike, the book's pages are full of practical advice about everything from how to write criticism to making use of a kitchen timer. Communication, engagement, honesty: these are the aims and sources of good writing. Storytelling, attention to organization, solid work habits: these are its tools. Kumar's own voice is present in his essays about the writing process and in his perceptive and witty observations on the academic world. A writing manual as well as a manifesto, Every Day I Write the Book will interest and guide aspiring writers everywhere.

It is not only the past that lies in ruins in Patna, it is also the present. But that is not the only truth about the city that Amitava Kumar explores in this vivid, entertaining account of his hometown. We accompany him through many Patnas, the myriad cities locked within the city—the shabby reality of the present-day capital of Bihar; Pataliputra, the storied city of emperors; the dreamlike embodiment of the city in the minds and hearts of those who have escaped contemporary Patna's confines. Full of fascinating observations and impressions, A Matter of Rats reveals a challenging and enduring city that exerts a lasting pull on all those who drift into its orbit. Kumar's ruminations on one of the world's oldest cities, the capital of India's poorest province, are also a meditation on how to write about place. His memory is partial. All he has going for him is his attentiveness. He carefully observes everything that surrounds him in Patna: rats and poets, artists and politicians, a girl's picture in a historian's study, and a sheet of paper on his mother's desk. The result is this unique book, as cutting as it is honest.

An intellectually thrilling and emotionally wrenching investigation of otherness: the need for one person to understand another person completely, the impossibility of any such absolute knowing, and the erotics of this separation. Can one person know another person? How do we live through other people? Is it possible to fill the gap between people? If not, can art fill that gap? Grappling with these questions, David Shields gives us a book that is something of a revelation: seventy-plus essays, written over the last thirty-five years, reconceived and recombined to form neither a miscellany nor a memoir but a sustained meditation on otherness. The book is divided into five sections: Men, Women, Athletes, Performers, Alter Egos. Whether he is writing about sexual desire or information sickness, George W. Bush or Kurt Cobain, women's eyeglasses or Greek tragedy, Howard Cosell or Bill Murray, the comedy of high school journalism or the agony of first love, Shields's sustained, piercing focus is on the multiplicity of perspectives informing any situation, on the irreducible log jam of human information, and on the possibilities, and impossibilities, for human connection. From the Hardcover edition.

"Board" is a groundbreaking work of literary collage derived entirely from comment boards at The Nervous Breakdown, an online culture magazine and literary community founded in 2006. It is a unique artifact of the Internet Age and the digital revolution in publishing. It is a cacophony of voices. It is what your computer screen sounds like, only better. It is strangely moving. And painfully honest. And shockingly funny and mean. It is all of these things. And it is essential reading for anyone who spends too much time sitting slack-jawed in front of a computer screen. ..".an unprecedented literary endeavor...beautifully, often poetically written...It s as if the cultural curiosity of a David Markson were being siphoned through the real life followers of his work in an art-imitating-life-imitating-art-imitating-Markson kerfuffle that s quite easy to become both engrossed by, and obsessed with...This is one to buy, study, enjoy..." HTML Giant "Expertly interweaving its leitmotifs technology, dreams, sex food, 'identity politics, ' death Board is a book in conversation with itself about a culture at war with itself. A sharp, funny, and unexpectedly moving take on contemporary America in the digital age." David Shields, author of "Reality Hunger" and "How Literature Saved My Life" "A must-read exhilarating, hypnotic, hilarious, and fun." Jeff Ragsdale, author of "Jeff, One Lonely Guy" "Fascinating, funny, full of enthusiasm and great loneliness a portrait of the web in its own words."

Harland Miller combines a painterly aesthetic with a literary mind and a uniquely gritty, north-of-England sense of humor. His bold, colorful, and tactile paintings reflect an original perspective on a rich heritage of pop art and literature: there is D. H. Lawrence's Dirty Northern Bastard; Ernest Hemingway's 12 Rounds With God; and Miller's own guide to the glorious English coast, Bridlington: Ninety-Three Million Miles From the Sun. His paintings are at once impressive, funny, and touching, conveying a pervasive sense of nostalgia while playing with the ironies of rhetoric and reputation. Miller has been a celebrated part of the London art scene since the 1990s, alongside such artists as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Sarah Morris, and others. In essays and interviews with Jarvis Cocker and Gordon Burn, Miller identifies the influences of such figures as Ed Ruscha, Mark Rothko, Anselm Kiefer, and Robert Rauschenberg, all of whose work can be seen to have left a mark on Miller's textured and iconoclastic style.
