    Originally published alongside Ulysses in the pages of the legendary Little Review, Mary Olivier: A Life is an account of the ties between daughter and mother, a book of transfixing images and troubling moral intelligence that confronts the exigencies and ambiguities of freedom and responsibility with empathy and power. May Sinclair's finest novel stands comparison with the work of Willa Cather, Katherine Mansfield, and the young Virginia Woolf.As a child, Mary Olivier's dreamy disposition and fierce intelligence set her apart from her Victorian family, especially her mother, "Little Mamma," whose dazzling looks cannot hide her meager love for her only daughter. Mary grows up in a world of her own, a solitude that leaves her free to explore her deepest passions, for literature and philosophy, for the austere beauties of England's north country, even as she continues to attend to her family. But in time the independence Mary values - at, almost any cost - threatens to become a form of captivity itself.

    In this compelling collection, Pollitt, one of the most eloquent and persuasive voices in American political conversation of this or any other era, skewers one hypocrite after another. She suggests, for example, that creationists be permitted to oppose the teaching of evolution only so long as they agree to forgo the benefits of the theory - such as flu vaccines. In the title essay, concerning fundamentalists' antagonism toward sexeducation and STD prevention, she asks, 'What is it with these right-wing Christians? Faced with a choice between sex and death, they choose death every time.' There's more! 265p.

    "She's a radical feminist. She's just a wife. She's Emma Goldman in a pantsuit. She's a corporate sellout. She's a liberal. She's conservative. She'll move all women forward. Yeah, right: The only woman she cares about is herself."—from Katha Pollitt's introduction Who is Hillary Clinton really? Her identity as a feminist, as a wife, as a woman, as a liberal and as a potential President of the United States has been debated and contested for more than 20 years. Chief amongst these debates, The Nation has, over the years, examined her from every angle from First Lady in 1993, to New York Senator in 2000 to Democratic Presidential hopeful today. Who is Hillary Clinton? is a fascinating time-lapse depiction of the leading Democratic presidential candidate as seen from the left. But it is also much more than that. A carefully-edited anthology of The Nation's coverage of Clinton's career, it's a rigorous and painstaking study of one of our most enigmatic public figures. It is a history of our time, and a must-read for the 2016 election season, providing perspective on the woman who could become the first female President of the United States. Contributors include David Corn, Erica Jong, Christopher Hitchens, Michael Tomasky, William Greider, Ari Berman, Barbara Ehrenreich, Chris Hayes, Jessica Valenti, Richard Kim, Joan Walsh, Jamelle Bouie, Doug Henwood, Heather Digby Parton, Michelle Goldberg, and many more.
