Even the Dead Rise Up

Author: Francis McKee
Title: Even the Dead Rise Up
Publisher: Bookworks
Subject: Literature
Stock: 

Even the Dead Rise Up, and the political becomes personal. In McKee’s first novel, observations of seances, scientific advances, group education outings, Kurdish protests for the ‘disappeared’, become mixed with his own Tarot influenced visions: a haunting spirit appears; the relation between political resistance and Spiritualism is cast as an insurrectionary force and a millenarian energy, celebrating the ecstatic moment. Histories of isolated early Christians and twentieth century mystics affect the psyche, all of this documented through journal entries that move from Scottish islands to Puerto Rico. Influenced by forms of 1960s new journalism, McKee pushes language to match the raw material of the stories, which become more erratic, signalling the looming fate of the text and its author.

Francis McKee is an Irish writer and curator working in Glasgow. He is Director since 2006 of the CCA, Glasgow, and a lecturer and research fellow at Glasgow School of Art. Since 2011 he has been working as lead researcher on an AHRC research project – The Glasgow Miracle: Materials Towards Alternative Histories. He curated the Scottish participation at the Venice Biennale with Kay Pallister in 2003, and has written and co-published extensively on the work of artists linked to Glasgow. Previously, McKee worked as an historian of medicine for the Wellcome Trust.

Calamities

WINNER of the 2017 Firecracker Award for Nonfiction from the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP)

Reading Calamities is incantational. The reading experience is one drenched in the constant feeling of ignition and obstruction. Calamities at once demands and inhibits; it solicits and perturbs. It frustrates and tickles. And it reminds us, most forcefully, that narrative is erotically phenomenological. (Prathna Lor, Jacket2)

A collection of linked essays concerned with the life and mind of the writer by one of the most original voices in contemporary literature. Each essay takes a day as its point of inquiry, observing the body as it moves through time, architecture, and space, gradually demanding a new logic and level of consciousness from the narrator and reader.

It’s 2017 and your life ISN’T a clusterfuck? Grow the fuck up. Though it’s often cloaked in reticence, the distance between what we want and what we’re offered is unravelling at the seams. Our fail-safes are falling apart. Our bodies are willed into cosmic orgies of fate, time, chance, and cum bubbles. Our universe is collapsing.  It’s no time for shyness—we need all hands on dick. What will happen when we bare it all in the open for everyone to see: our loves, our legs, and our late-night dirty texts, dirty secrets, and dirty pants? There’s a world busting open like a nut: Welcome to the Great Outdoors. ― Nathan Beyonce Ma

The Complete Madame Realism and Other Stories

Author: Lynne Tillman
Title: The Complete Madame Realism and Other Stories
Publisher: Semiotext(e)
Subject: Essays & Non-fiction, Literature & Poetry
Stock: 

The Complete Madame Realism and Other Stories gathers together Lynne Tillman's groundbreaking fiction/essays on culture and places, monuments, artworks, iconic TV shows, and received ideas, written in the third person to record the subtle, ironic, and wry observations of the playful but stern 'Madame Realism.'

Through her use of a fictional character, Tillman devised a new genre of writing that melded fiction and theory, sensation, and critical thought, disseminating her third-person art writer's observations in such magazines as Art in America and in a variety of art exhibition catalogs and artist books. Two decades after the original publication of these texts, her approach to investigation through embodied thought has been wholly absorbed by a new generation of artists and writers. Provocative and wholly pleasurable, Tillman's stories/essays dissect the mundane with alarming precision. As Lydia Davis wrote of her work, 'Our assumptions shift. The every day becomes strange, paradox is embraced, and the unexpected is always around the corner.'

Another Morocco

Author: Abdellah Taïa
Title: Another Morocco. Selected Stories
Publisher: Semiotext(e)
Subject: Literature & Poetry

In 2006, Abdellah Taïa returned to his native Morocco to promote the Moroccan release of his second book, Le rouge du tarbouche (The Red of the Fez). During this book tour, he was interviewed by a reporter for the French-Arab journal Tel Quel, who was intrigued by the themes of homosexuality she saw in his writing. Taïa, who had not publically come out and feared the repercussions for himself and his family of doing so in a country where homosexuality continues to be outlawed, nevertheless consented to the interview and subsequent profile, 'Homosexuel envers et contre tous' ('Homosexual against All Odds'). This interview made him the first openly gay writer to be published in Morocco.

Another Morocco collects short stories from Taïa's first two books, Mon Maroc (My Morocco) and Le rouge du tarbouche, both published before this pivotal moment. In these stories, we see a young writer testing the porousness of boundaries, flirting with strategies of revelation and concealment. These are tales of life in a working-class Moroccan family, of a maturing writer's fraught relationship with language and community, and of the many cities and works that have inspired him.

Like a Woman

Author: Quinn Latimer
Title: Like a Woman. Essays, Readings, Poems
Publisher: Sternberg Press
Subject: Essays & Non-fiction, Poetry

Moving from Southern California to central and southern Europe, crossing geographies and genres, Quinn Latimer's texts record specters and realities of culture, migration, and displacement, compounding the vagaries of rhetoric and poetics with those of personal history and criticism. 

Composed in the space between the page and live performance, Latimer’s recent essays and poems collected here examine issues of genealogy and influence, the poverty and privilege of place, architecture’s relationship to language, and feminist economies of writing, reading, and art making. Shifting between written language and live address, between the needs of the internal and the external voice, Like a Woman retrieves the refrain, the litany, and the chorus, exploring their serial ecstasies and political possibilities.

Crazy for Vincent

Author: Herve Guibert
Title: Crazy for Vincent
Publisher: Semiotext(e)
Subject: Literature & Poetry

Crazy for Vincent begins with the death of the figure it fixates upon: Vincent, a skateboarding, drug-addled, delicate 'monster' of a boy in whom the narrator finds a most sublime beauty. By turns tender and violent, Vincent drops in and out of French writer and photographer Herve Guibert’s life over the span of six years (from 1982, when he first met Vincent as a fifteen-year-old teenager, to 1988). After Vincent’s senseless death, the narrator embarks on a reconnaissance writing mission to retrieve the Vincent that had entered, elevated, and emotionally eviscerated his life, working chronologically backward from the death that opens the text. Assembling Vincent’s fragmentary appearances in his journal, the author seeks to understand what Vincent’s presence in his life had been: a passion? a love? an erotic obsession? or an authorial invention? A parallel inquiry could be made into the book that results: Is it diary, memoir, poem, fiction? Autopsy, crime scene, hagiography, hymn? 

Herve Guibert was the author of more than twenty-five books, many of which redefined the genres of fiction, criticism, autobiography, and memoir. A photography critic for Le Monde from 1977 to 1985, he was also a photographer and filmmaker in his own right, and in 1980 published the photo-novel Suzanne and Louise, a book that combined photographic studies of his great-aunts with stories about them. In 1984 he was awarded a Cesar for best screenplay in partnership with Patrice Chereau for L’Homme Blesse. Shortly before his death, he completed La Pudeur ou L’impudeur, a video work that chronicles the last days of his life while living with AIDS. He died in 1991, at the age of 36.

Last Seen Entering the Biltmore

Author: Gary Indiana
Title: Last Seen Entering the Biltmore. Plays, Short Fiction, Poems 1975-2010
Publisher: Semiotext(e)
Subject: Literature & Poetry

Before publishing his celebrated first novel, Horse Crazy, in 1987, Gary Indiana wrote and directed twelve plays for an informal company whose performers included the painter Bill Rice, composer Evan Lurie, the poet George-Therese Dickenson, writer and film actress Cookie Mueller, Warhol superstar and painter Viva, writer Victoria Pedersen, singer/actress Sharon Niesp, photographer Allen Frame, the legendary Taylor Mead, novelist Larry Mitchell, and others. Performed at the Mudd Club, Club 57, The Performing Garage, and Bill Rice's E. 3rd Street studio, Indiana's plays offered a kind of community theater for New York's underground.

This volume presents highlights of that repertoire, including Alligator Girls Go to CollegeThe Roman Polanski Story, and Indiana's script for Michel Auder's videofilm A Coupla White Faggots Sitting Around Talking, accompanied by archival performance photographs and selections from Indiana's contemporaneous journals and poems. These hilarious, incisive writings and scripts evoke a vivid and accurate portrait of writers and artists in the lower Manhattan of the 1980s—arguably America's last avant-garde—and anticipates Indiana's impressive subsequent literary career.

Subject: Literature, Short Stories
Stock: 

Published by Semiotext(e) in 1998, Airless Spaces, Firestone’s first work of fiction, is a collection of short stories written by Firestone as she found herself drifting from the professional career path she’d been on and into what she describes as a new 'airless space.' These deadpan stories, set among the disappeared and darkened sectors of New York City, are about losers who fall prey to an increasingly bureaucratized poverty and find themselves in an out of (mental) hospitals. But what gives characters such as SCUM-Manifesto author Valerie Solanas their depth and charge, is their the small crises that trigger an awareness that they’re in trouble.

Some time later, after I had moved to St. Mark’s Place, I saw Valerie in the street. She asked me for a quarter, and I saw that she was begging. She had lost her apartment, and presumably her welfare. Later, a friend of mine who ran a store on St. Mark’s Place said that Valerie had approached him for shelter. She was covered with sores, and wearing only a blanket to beg in. She had been out on the street approximately three months without shelter. Not long after that, she disappeared from the street entirely.-From Airless Spaces

Black Space

For Erna Brodber

Be ye my fictions; But her story.
— Richard Crashaw

I can bring a halo

into the night cave, quiet
with music (do not ask the music),
to her shaded there
in the moon; her fine spectacles
steam their pond rings;
her animal eyes fix
on the lintel of the door
as the wax owl glances back at me. I am her little cotton
tree the breeze combs
white into a final note,
her diminuendo poco a poco ...    
Moon-afro, myself
outpaces me
in wonder of her.
She goes off and I seep
under the black sprout
of her house, to rise
a salmon bell on the hill
dissolving mild cloud fractals,
without grief or malice.

Weird Fucks

Author: Lynne Tillman
Title: Weird Fucks
Publisher: New Herring Press
Subject: Literature and Poetry

FICTION. WOMEN'S STUDIES. ART BY AMY SILLMAN. The long out-of-print 1978 novella by the brilliant Lynne Tillman catalogs a series of encounters and relationships spanning the 60s and the 70s. Fucking is involved. So is weird, but in a way that means more than just weird. Think wyrd, like the witch sisters of Macbeth, or already feeling like a ghost, or waiting in a Victorian nightgown on Valium for two months, or knowing more about the cock of the baby alien in your bed than about his face. It's an early work, but already the sentences are classic Lynne Tillman, brutal, funny, concrete, and haunted. This is how WEIRD FUCKS should have always been, alone and beautiful and shiny in the world. The 8 full color artworks by Amy Sillman rub up against the words, and the fine detail and construction make it a pleasurably Weird Fuck to read and hold.

Communal Nude

Title: Communal Nude. Collected Essays
Publisher: Semiotext(e)
Subject: Literature, Essays & Non-fiction
Stock: 

Since cofounding San Francisco’s influential New Narrative circle in 1979, Robert Glück has been one of America’s finest prose stylists of innovative fiction, bending narrative into the service of autobiography, politics, and gay writing. This collection brings together for the first time Glück’s nonfiction, a revelatory body of work that anchors his writing practice. Glück’s essays explore the ways that storytelling and selfhood are mutually embedded cultural forms, cohering a fractured social reality where generating narrative means generating identity means generating community. 

Glück’s essays affirm this radical narratorial precept in rich spirals of reading, self-reflection, anecdote, escapade, and 'metatext.' These texts span the author’s career and his creative affinities—from lost manifestos theorizing the poetics of New Narrative; to encomia for literary and philosophic muses (Kathy Acker, the HOW(ever) poets, Frank O’Hara, Georges Bataille, and others); to narrative journalism, book reviews, criticism, and public talks. Many of the texts are culled from obscure little magazines and ephemeral online sources; others have never been published. As lucid as story, as lush as theory, and as irresistible as gossip, Glück’s essays are the quintessence of New Narrative theory in practice.

The Complete Plays

Author:  Guy de Cointet; Hugues Decointet, Francois Piron, Marilou Thiebault (eds.)
Title:  The Complete Plays
Publisher: Paraguay Press
Subject: Artists' Writings, Literature & Poetry, Monographs
Stock: 

Guy de Cointet (1934–1983) was fascinated with language, which he explored primarily through performance and drawing. His practice involved collecting random phrases, words, and even single letters from popular culture and literary sources—he often cited Raymond Roussel's novel Impressions of Africa as influential—and working these elements into nonlinear narratives, which were presented as plays to his audience. 

Paintings and works on paper would then figure prominently within these performances. In his play At Sunrise . . . A Cry Was Heard (1974), a large painting depicting letters bisected by a white sash served as a main subject and prop, with the lead actress continuously referring to it and reading its jumble of letters as if it were an ordinary script. His drawings likewise are almost readable but just beyond comprehension. De Cointet is recognized as one of the major figures in the conceptual art movement that emerged in Los Angeles in the 1970s, having strongly influenced a number of prominent artists working in southern California, including Paul McCarthy and Mike Kelley.

Guy de Cointet: The Complete Plays gathers for the first time all the theatrical works by Guy de Cointet, written between 1973 and 1983. With twenty-five plays in the original French and English and in translation, the book also features commentaries, interviews, and documents relating to their intended design and staging, including notebooks, drawings, photographs, posters, and invitation cards from the archives of Guy de Cointet Estate at the Centre Pompidou's Kandinsky Library in Paris.

The Amme Talks

Author: Ulf Stolterfoht 
Title: The Amme Talks
Publisher:  Triple Canopy
Subject: Literature
Stock: 

Translated by Shane Anderson with an afterword by Peter Dittmer.

The Amme Talks is a conversation between poet and machine. In 2003, poet Ulf Stolterfoht and a chatbot named Amme (which means “wet nurse” in German) met in Berlin. For one week, Stolterfoht interrogated Amme: not just a chatbot, actually, but a steel-and-glass construction with a computer interface, which is connected to a glass of milk, a robotic arm that tips over the glass, and a tube that releases water, as if urinating.

Stolterfoht asked Amme—the creation of artist Peter Dittmer—about the nature of authorship and the agency of language; he intended to turn the answers into an essay on poetics. While Amme replied to every question, Stolterfoht observed that the output was 'highly self-reflexive, if not entirely self-referential,' and impossible for him to assimilate into his writing. He’d hoped to glean something from Amme’s performance of an idiosyncratic and mechanical form of human speech. Instead, he stumbled on a remarkable 'second-order realism' in which words refer not to things but to themselves.

Etudes des Gottnarrenmaschinen

Publisher: Broken Dimanche Press
Subject: Literature & Poetry
Stock: 

It’s not often that a collection of writing reaches as far and wide as Shane Anderson’s debut work, Etudes des Gottnarrenmaschinen. Broken Dimanche Press is extremely excited to be publishing this bold collection which includes three works that explore the boundaries of fiction and poetry. Utilising a plethora of devices – erasures, pseudo application forms, Oulipo constraints, and the limits of the paragraph – this is indeed a virtuoso collection that takes on the problems of (modern) travel, power relations, historical and mental representation. Using humor as a tool to diffuse these heavy-handed themes, Etudes des Gottnarrenmaschinen takes the musical analogy of the ‘etude’ seriously, considering these to be studies, 'lessons,' difficult, all aimed towards a future idea of what fiction could be, pushing up against a static Aristotelian scheme.

In this collection the reader moves from a Rome both ancient and modern to a reconfigured world of global travel, and on to a unique, philosophical examination of translation, rationalism and the possibility of the transcendent. Instead of being envious of the video game as the site of literary potential, Anderson has boldly taken on the form in the first piece of this collection, 'Failed Proposals,' and what we get as the result is the closest one can come to having a Playstation story that Barthelme or Perec would be happy to sit down and pla

Traversing genres of fiction and critical discourse, ideas are explored in a nonlinear, open-ended discursive format, in which the textual structure mirrors the structuring of the presented ideas. In each text Gillick’s concern is to explore complex, paradoxical historical moments and the ideologies that shaped them, reflecting on how the redundant utopian elements of the past continue to structure contemporary society and remain impulses within speculations of our post-utopian future.

A moving meld of essay, memoir, and story, When the Sick Rule the World collects Dodie Bellamy’s new and recent lyric prose. Taking on topics as eclectic as vomit, Kathy Acker’s wardrobe, and Occupy Oakland, Bellamy here examines illness, health, and the body—both the social body and the individual body—in essays that glitter with wit even at their darkest moments.

In a safe house in Marin County, strangers allergic to the poisons of the world gather for an evening’s solace. In Oakland, protesters dance an ecstatic bacchanal over the cancerous body of the city-state they love and hate. In the elegiac memoir, 'Phone Home,' Bellamy meditates on her dying mother’s last days via the improbable cipher of Steven Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Finally, Bellamy offers a piercing critique of the displacement and blight that have accompanied Twitter’s move into her warehouse-district neighborhood, and the pitiless imperialism of tech consciousness.
