‘From the East Village to West Hollywood, from avant-garde poetry to pre-internet pornography, these stories – touching, scabrous, brutal – tell it like it is. Matthew Licht’s effortlessly inventive language, dark and tender, sexually charged, free-wheeling, whimsical, regretful, rummages through the cultural detritus of our crazy mythos, and comes up sweet and headily evocative as roses.’ —CHARLES LAMBERT, author of Any Human Face and The View from the TowerJustine’s a famous poet. Joe’s a self-styled Private Investigator without a clue. The Garbageman has cleaned his mind through immersion in filth. What he has to offer his clients, and even his enemies, is serenity. Three characters in search of a reader: you.‘Nobody can push an envelope harder or further than Matthew Licht, though he’s not all shock value. There’s also intelligence, wit and surprising craft here.’ —DIAN HANSON, author of Naked as a Jaybird‘Matthew Licht is an original and a rarity. His writing is smart, warm, engaging but also contains a healthy dose of New York “Fuck you!”.’ —GEOFF NICHOLSON, author of Bedlam Burning‘His goal is to disturb rather than enlighten, to impale human folly and absurdity, to unpeel the intellectual bankruptcy of our times.’ —JOHN THACKRAY

Readers tired of the latest, the hottest, the most expensive will be glad for a look at grubbier times, grittier adventures than virtual reality or Reality TV can supply. What would happen if you were downsized from that stressful job that takes up so much of your time? Life might be not as bad, or a whole lot worse than you think. Either way, you’d have plenty of time to go to The Moose Show, and the price of admission compares extremely favorably with current forms of diversion. The lives we discover are unencumbered by computers, cell phones, shiny new automobiles, drugs or lust for money, position, social standing, celebrity.The Moose Show is not what you expect to see, even if you just got off a snowmobile in Saskatoon. There might still be a Moose Show going on somewhere a little closer by, between urban legend and vivid nightmare. Are you sure you want to go in and see what happens? Here are stories from a world that no longer exists. Or rather, from a world that The World would like you to believe no longer exists. Do the people who buy T-shirts and Big Macs on The New 42nd Street know what was there before, right where they’re standing? Would they still want to eat that greasy burger if they knew?

How do you conjure a life? Give the truest account of what you saw, felt, learned, loved, strived for? For Amy Krouse Rosenthal, the surprising answer came in the form of an encyclopedia. In Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life she has ingeniously adapted this centuries-old format for conveying knowledge into a poignant, wise, often funny, fully realized memoir. Using mostly short entries organized from A to Z, many of which are cross-referenced, Rosenthal captures in wonderful and episodic detail the moments, observations, and emotions that comprise a contemporary life. Start anywhere—preferably at the beginning—and see how one young woman’s alphabetized existence can open up and define the world in new and unexpected ways. An ordinary life, perhaps, but an extraordinary book. From the Hardcover edition.

In Bedlam Burning, Geoff Nicholson takes deadly satiric aim at the ivy-covered walls of academia and the rubber rooms of insane asylums. When the debut novel of Gregory Collins is accepted by a publisher he seems set on a course for literary stardom. There's just one problem: he doesn't quite have the looks to match his talent, and his publisher wants a photo to put on the book jacket. He asks his handsome (but dim) college classmate, Mike Smith, to take his place. Consequently it is Smith rather than Collins who receives the offer to be writer-in-residence at an asylum where therapy is centered on the soothing powers of literature. It's not long before the boundaries between inmate and observer are blurred in this literary cuckoo's nest and this comedy of errors verges on tragedy.

In the same vein as Heartways and Futureways-the first two books in the Ways series-Crimeways is literature as conceptual art: a unique collaboration between the Whitney Museum of American Art, Printed Matter, Inc., and Arsenal. Crimeways is a faux mystery/crime "novel" in which each chapter is written by a different contributor, all of whom create stories of cops, pis, and fugitives that simultaneously work within and outside the genre. Crimeways tells the tale of a New York under seige by aesthetic terrorists who scheme to destroy a New York landmark in the name of art. The book's hero, who stumbles onto the plot, attempts to save New York from artistic fascists and bad taste. Conceived by internationally acclaimed artist Rita McBride, Crimeways is the third book in the Ways Series. Books in the Ways Series-which include contributions by more than fifty different artists, architects, writers, journalists, scientists, curators, and critics-exploit and decipher genre writing with an entertaining and refreshing collective structure.

Nebula Award Finalist:Mankind has been reduced to slavery by technology and surveillance, in this near-future novel from the author of Stand on Zanzibar. In The Jagged Orbit, Brunner, writing at the peak of form that allowed him to create Stand on Zanzibar, takes a long, hard, disturbing, and hilarious look at the near and not-so-distant future. Catastrophic changes due to rampant drug abuse, uncontrolled violence, high-level government corruption, inhumane treatment of the too-readily defined “insane,” and the accompanying collapse of the social order are wreaking havoc on the world we recognize and turning it into a reality we must fear and hope to avoid. Brunner tells a spine-chilling tale of where the world could possibly go that is all too believable and real for our comfort. “For each generation, there is a writer meant to bend the rules of what we know. Hugo Award winner (Best Novel, Stand on Zanzibar) and British science fiction master John Brunner remains one of the most influential and respected authors of all time, and now many of his classic works are being reintroduced. For readers familiar with his vision, it is a chance to reexamine his thoughtful worlds and words. For new readers, Brunner’s work proves itself the very definition of timeless.

Rita McBride is a prominent American artist based in Dusseldorf, whose sculptures and installations deal with fiction and public space and often provide a set for performances and lectures. She has edited a series of books for which she invited other artists and writers to write short stories involving constraints and a relationship to the art world. Each of the books corresponds to a sub literary genre (crime novels, SF, soft-eroticism, and so on). Westways is the fifth in Rita McBride's continuing 'Ways' series of collaborative novels, this time with writer and climber Matthew Licht. We follow Mae West from her childhood in 19th century Brooklyn through her adventures with W.C. Fields at the 1931 Oktoberfest to a Sapphic encounter with Leni Riefenstahl on safari in the 1970s, picking up a fighter pilot, Salvador Dali, and Billy Wilder for the ride. Published to coincide with the completion of McBride's 52-metre-high Mae West public commission at Munich's Effnerplatz; the artist's Mae West is actress, inflatable vest, sculpture, exhibition, and now finally a book. The publication is part of the series of artists' projects edited by Christoph Keller.

"A must read for anyone looking to take his performance to the next level, be it in athletics or in life."—Dean Karnazes, author of Ultra Marathon Man “If there’s anyone out there who has taken extreme to a new level, its Joe De Sena—in adventure racing, in business, and ultimately in the business of adventure! Spartan Up! is must-read.”—Robyn Benincasa, world champion adventure racer and New York Times best-selling author of How Winning Works What do marathoners do when 26.2 miles just isn’t enough anymore? They try obstacle racing, combining the endurance challenges of a marathon with the mind- and body-bending rigors of overcoming obstacles along the way. At the heart of this phenomenon is Joe De Sena, the driving force behind the Spartan Race. De Sena overcame his own obstacles—working his way from Queens to Wall Street to legendary extreme athlete—by adhering to a simple philosophy: commit to a goal, put in the work, and get it done. From that philosophy, as played out now for millions across trails, through mud, and up mountainsides, the Spartan Race was born. Filled with unforgettable stories of Spartan racers as well as hard-won truths learned along the course, Spartan Up! will help you reach your full potential in whatever you set out to do. “Have you ever wanted to be more, been stuck in a funk, or simply wanted make life poignant? Look no further because Spartan Up! is your catalyst. Loaded with real life inspiration and lessons, Joe De Sena uses his supercharged success in life, business, and sports to deliver the nuggets. This is an easy and juicy read; succinct, powerful, and relevant.” —Ian Adamson, world champion adventure racer and author of Runner’s World Guide to Adventure Racing
