Fred Tomaselli: The Times

Lawrence Weschler

$27.68

In this brilliant time capsule of recent world events, celebrated artist Fred Tomaselli intrepidly and colorfully reimagines the front pages of the New York Times. Hurricane Katrina's devastation of New Orleans, the international financial crisis, the Berlusconi scandal, an earthquake in Haiti, the tsunami in Japan, revolution at home and abroad--the headlines of the past decade have been a true roller-coaster ride. Self-proclaimed news junkie Fred Tomaselli has been responding to these earth-shattering events through a fascinating series of artworks collected here for the first time. Tomaselli superimposes his signature psychedelic aesthetic on the front page of the New York Times, setting up a striking contrast between the paper's sober depictions of reality and his vivid interventions. Readers will delight in comparing the actual headlines, captions, and articles that surround the images with Tomaselli's trippy, highly detailed interpretations. Filled with gorgeous reproductions of works that range from tongue in-cheek satire to unmitigated outrage, this timely volume is certain to appeal to art lovers as well as street-smart consumers of today's headline news.

 

Free Will

 

Free Will

1451683405

$6.71

A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality—as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement—without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion. In the enlightening book "Free Will," Sam Harris argues that this truth about the human mind does not undermine morality or diminish the importance of social and political freedom, but it can and should change the way we think about some of the most important questions in life.

Gambit: Newer African Writing

 

Gambit: Newer African Writing

Shaun Randol

B00QSMX2LS

"Gambit: Newer African Writing is a unique collection of nine interviews and original short stories by emerging writers from across Africa. The stories in this anthology reflect the nuances that arise from living in a post-postcolonial Africa, where stereotypes are crumbling and writers are willing to tackle themes that are more social than political. Unlike other anthologies of African writing, Gambit's contributors are mostly based in their home countries, putting them closer to the themes they lyrically confront. The interviews provide insight into the writers' inspirations, fears, hopes, and craft. The short stories reveal a range of experiences that are alive with grace, resilience, and humor. Gambit is one way to rediscover today's writing from the African continent. Contributors include: Abdul Adan (Somalia), Ayobami Adebayo (Nigeria), Dami Najayi (Nigeria), Richard Ali (Nigeria), Abubakar Adam Ibrahim (Nigeria), Dango Mkandawire (Malawi), Donald Molosi (Botswana), Novuyo Rosa Tshuma (Zimbabwe), and Suzanne Ushie (Nigeria)."
