封面暂缺
英文概要: With the rise of the anti-Trump resistance, we’ve seen a flourishing of art, media, and lifestyles branded as countercultural. But are they really challenging power? Are they helping build the world we want to live in, or merely reinforcing the status quo? In the way White’s acclaimed The Middle Mind challenged what passed for intellectualism or imagination in America, this book challenges what passes as counterculture . . . at a moment when we’re in desperate need of the real thing.

代理商:大苹果 BOXING: A CULTURAL HISTORY
by KASIA BODDY
页数:480    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-3-22
< /td>
英文概要: Boxing is one of the oldest and most physical of sports, its visceral appeal lying in the stark struggle for dominance through the brutal silencers of fists and pain. The permeation of boxing into Western culture is the subject of Kasia Boddy’s fascinating and comprehensive investigation. From ancient Greece to the present day, Boddy charts the myriad incarnations of the sport in Western society and the larger-than-life figures who have played pivotal roles in its history. Boxing traces the portrayal of the sport in literature and media, from Greek odes to hip-hop lyrics to silent films, and shows the sport to be a complex cultural act that transforms the voyeur into a participant. Artists and writers have long employed the boxer as their primitive muse and Boddy explores the role of the boxer in the works of writers such as Norman Mailer, Charles Dickens, Ralph Ellison and William Hazlitt, as well as its artistic renderings in neo-classical sculpture, comic books and films such as the Rocky series and Raging Bull. Boxing has also played an important role in social history, as the sport has been a provocative touchstone in politics, race and ethnicity, economics and masculinity through public acclaim or excoriation of legends such as Jack Dempsey, Muhammad Ali, Jack Johnson and Lennox Lewis. Whether as a leisured eighteenth-century pastime of British gentlemen, a crime-shadowed commercial enterprise or a rough pursuit of blue-collar and immigrant workers, boxing is ultimately a theatrical ritual, one in which fundamental oppositions of might, mind and experience clash viciously. An engrossing and readable sport history, this book draws the reader into the world of the boxing ring and exposes its ever-evolving place in our cultural consciousness. 
 
中文概要:
作者介绍: Kasia Boddy is lecturer in the Faculty of English at the University of Cambridge and has published widely on British and American literature and film. She is the author of Boxing: A Cultural History (Reaktion, 2008) and The American Short Story Since 1950 (2010), and is editor of The New Penguin Book of American Short Stories (2011).

by CHRISTOPHER BOUCHER
页数:0    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-3-22
< /td>
英文概要: Big Giant Floating Head is a story collection unlike anything you have ever read. Suddenly, everything becomes slippery; A man grows a wall inside himself; A bookstore owner meets a woman with an invisible dog. Welcome back to the wildly-imaginative worlds of Christopher Boucher, where hearts take vacations and language is kept in zoos. With Big Giant Floating Head, Boucher brings us more of the ’strange brilliance’ - in the words of Emily St. John Mandel - that drew readers to his novels How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive and Golden Delicious. Here, you’ll root for the misfits known as the Unloveables, and marvel at the couple that sells all of their experiences with their house (’For Sale By Owner’). With equal parts humour and heartbreak, these interweaving narratives solidify Boucher’s place among ground-breaking surrealists like Donald Barthelme, Karen Russell and George Saunders. In each section, Boucher carries and his readers into uncharted and moving new territory.

by WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED BY JOSEPH LAMBERT
页数:96    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-3-20
< /td>
英文概要: Helen Keller lost her ability to see and hear before she turned two years old.

But in her lifetime, she learned to ride horseback and dance the foxtrot. She graduated from Radcliffe. She became a world famous speaker and author. She befriended Mark Twain, Charlie Chaplin, and Alexander Graham Bell. And above all, she revolutionized public perception and treatment of the blind and the deaf.

The catalyst for this remarkable life’s journey was Annie Sullivan, a young woman who was herself visually impaired. Hired as a tutor when Helen was six years old, Annie broke down the barriers between Helen and the wider world, becoming a fiercely devoted friend and lifelong companion in the process.

In Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller, author and illustrator Joseph Lambert examines the powerful bond between teacher and pupil, forged through the intense frustrations and revelations of Helen’s early education. The result is an inspiring, emotional, and wholly original take on the story of these two great Americans.

特殊的設計,使本書包涵可以翻轉觀點的兩個故事,不論從哪一面開始讀,都將會與另一個故事相遇,而結論是最美的:「既然山這麼大,總是有空間容納索有愛它的存在。」當我們能以包容和同理的心對待另一方,就算是狼與牧羊人,也可以在美麗的山中共存共榮。 (Zoe)

英文概要: "I have escaped out of more handcuffs, manacles, and leg shackles than any other human being living."

Harry Houdini mesmerized a generation of Americans when he was alive, and continues to do so over ninety years since his death. This is a snapshot of Houdini’s life, centering on one of his most famous feats. As Houdini prepares for a death-defying leap into the icy Charles River in Boston, biographer Jason Lutes and artist Nick Bertozzi reveal Houdini’s life and influence: from the anti-Semitism Houdini fought all his life, to the adulation of the American public; from his hounding by the press, to his loving relationship with his wife Bess; from his egoism to his insecurity; from his public persona--to the secret behind his most amazing trick! And it’s all in graphic form, so it’s fresh, original, and unlike anything previously published about this most fascinating of American showmen. 

 
中文概要:
作者介绍: Jason Lutes has been an admirer of Houdini for most of his adult life, and his celebrated graphic novel for adults, Jar of Fools, also pays homage to the Handcuff King. His most recent book is Berlin. Jason lives in Vermont with his partner and two children, where he teaches comics at the Center for Cartoon Studies.

Nick Bertozzi is an award-winning cartoonist.

代理商:大苹果 THOREAU AT WALDEN
by WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED BY JOHN PORCELLINO
页数:112    定价:美元   上传日期:2019-3-20
< /td>
英文概要: "I am convinced, both by faith and experience, that to maintain one’s self on this earth is not a hardship, but a pastime, if we will live simply and wisely." So said Henry David Thoreau in 1845 when he began his famous experiment of living by Walden Pond. In this graphic masterpiece, John Porcellino uses only the words of Thoreau himself to tell the story of those two years off the beaten track. The pared-down text focuses on Thoreau’s most profound ideas, and Porcellino’s fresh, simple pictures bring the philosopher’s sojourn at Walden to cinematic life. For readers who know Walden intimately, this graphic treatment will provide a vivid new interpretation of Thoreau’s story. For those who have never read (or never completed!) the original, it presents a contemporary look at a few brave words to live by. 
 
中文概要:
作者介绍: John Porcellino has been writing, drawing, and publishing minicomics, comics, and graphic novels for the last thirty-five years. His celebrated series King-Cat Comics, begun in 1989, has inspired a generation of cartoonists. Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man, a collection of King-Cat stories about Porcellino’s experiences as a pest control worker, won an Ignatz Award in 2005. Perfect Example, first published in 2000, chronicles his struggles with depression as a teenager. Other publications include King-Cat Classix, Map of My Heart, and The Hospital Suite. According to cartoonist Chris Ware, "John Porcellino’s comics distill, in just a few lines and words, the feeling of simply being alive." Porcellino’s work has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Italian, and Korean. He currently lives in Beloit, Wisconsin. Find out more at king-kat.net.
