  • Against Everything: Essays

    By Mark Greif

    Our Price: $8.50 - $15.30
    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9781101971741
    • Publisher: Vintage
    • Published: August 2017
    The essays in Against Everything are learned, original, highly entertaining, and, from start to finish, dead serious, reinventing and reinvigorating what intellectuals can be and say and do. Key topics are the tyranny of exercise, the folly of food snobbery, the sexualization of childhood (and everything else), the philosophical meaning of pop music, the rise and fall of the hipster, the uses of reality TV, the impact of protest movements, and the crisis of policing. Four of the selections address, directly and unironically, the meaning of life—how to find a philosophical stance to adopt toward one’s self and the world. Mark Greif manages to revivify the thought and spirit of the greatest of American dissenters, Henry David Thoreau, for our time and historical situation.

    Anthony Bourdain is a man of many appetites. And for many years--first as a chef, later as a world-traveling chronicler of food and culture on his CNN series Parts Unknown-- he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he's cooking, it's for family and friends. Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down thirty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites--dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain's opinion) know how to cook. The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.

    Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, Morrison's spellbinding novel transforms history into a story on a biblical scale as well as a lullaby. Sethe, the protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. There are too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things occurred. Her new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Morrison is the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. The New York Times Book Review Fiction Survey finds Beloved 'the single best work of American fiction published in the last 25 years.' 324p.

    The Universe of Christo and Jeanne-Claude: A concise history of their art The work of the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude transcends borders, resists categorizing, and embraces contradiction. This is the only compact book that includes all of their projects, from Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s works from 1958 to urban and rural temporary works of art, such as The Gates in Central Park, the Wrapped Reichstag in Berlin, and The Floating Piers, Project for Lago Iseo, Italy, which will be installed in 2016.This book gives a detailed overview of the life and work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, from early drawings and family photos to plans for future projects, an incisive and detailed history spanning the entire oeuvre. It traces both the lives and the works of an artist couple who established a category all their own: a category somewhere between conceptual art, urban planning, architecture, politics, engineering and art.
