Malina Cover Image
By Ingeborg Bachmann, Philip Boehm (Translated by), Rachel Kushner (Introduction by)
ISBN: 9780811228725

Published: New Directions - June 25th, 2019

Malina explores the mind of a woman experiencing fascism's faceless undercurrents in the "freedom" of postwar society. The narrator does not mince words: to even think of transcending this world, beyond the binary of man and woman and all our society's power structures, would mean "murder," in every sense. Quotidian, lurid, surreal, radical -- and all veiled in a love triangle of sorts. This novel belongs to our moment as much as any.

The Green Hand and Other Stories Cover Image
By Nicole Claveloux, Donald Nicholson Smith (Translated by), Daniel Clowes (Introduction by)

Published: New York Review Comics - November 28th, 2017

Dreamy, sometimes twisted, and often hilarious comics from a master French illustrator. Worth the price of admission for the color palettes and surreal cast of characters alone -- a depressed bird, an evil baby, a vegetable who thinks it's a panther, and many more. These stories are filled with wry social commentary while also pulling us out of this world in a way all too rare in contemporary comics.

Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance Cover Image
ISBN: 9781786636720
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Verso - March 5th, 2019

The struggle at Standing Rock did not exist in a vacuum. Nick Estes has done something very powerful here by situating that modern moment in a continuous, generations-long indigenous resistance against colonialism, and in doing so lights a path to a world where it will finally cease to exist. It is a rebuke to our common, atomized histories, taking us forwards and backwards from Wounded Knee to the A.I.M. to Standing Rock itself and always with an eye toward the material well being of the land and its inhabitants. This book belongs on every shelf on this continent.
