At Large and At Small: Confessions of a Literary Hedonist, Anne Fadiman
3 Anne Fadiman At Large and At Small: Confessions of a Literary Hedonist
Penguin Books 233958 Great Britain 2008 0141033991 / 9780141033990 Softcover Good Condition In At Large and At Small, Anne Fadiman returns to one of her favorite genres, the familiar essay--a beloved and hallowed literary tradition recognized for both its intellectual breadth and its miniaturist focus on everyday experiences. With the combination of humor and erudition that has distinguished her as one of our finest essayists, Fadiman draws us into twelve of her personal obsessions: from her slightly sinister childhood enthusiasm for catching butterflies to her monumental crush on Charles Lamb, from her wistfulness for the days of letter-writing to the challenges and rewards of moving from the city to the country. Many of these essays were composed "under the influence" of the subject at hand. Fadiman ingests a shocking amount of ice cream and divulges her passion for Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip and her brother's homemade Liquid Nitrogen Kahlua Coffee (recipe included); she sustains a terrific caffeine buzz while recounting Balzac's coffee addiction; and she stays up till dawn to write about being a night owl, examining the rhythms of our circadian clocks and sharing such insomnia cures as her father's nocturnal word games and Lewis Carroll's mathematical puzzles. At Large and At Small is a brilliant and delightful collection of essays that harkens a revival of a long-cherished genre. 220 pages. Previous owners name on front blank endpaper.

Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity, Duncan Kennedy
12 Duncan Kennedy Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity
Harvard University Press 227643 USA 1993 0674802977 / 9780674802971 Softcover Very Good Condition Duncan Kennedy argues that an American radicalism is both possible and desirable. One base for radical politics is the big institutional workplace; another is popular culture--whence his emphasis on phenomena like sexy dressing. Kennedy's aim is to wed the rebelliousness, irony, and irrationalism of cultural modernism and postmodernism to the earnestness of political correctness. 258 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Landprints - Reflections on Place and Landscape, George Seddon
16 George Seddon Landprints - Reflections on Place and Landscape
Cambridge University Press 232082 Australia 1997 052165999X / 9780521659994 Softcover Near Fine Condition This is a series of essays about the ways in which landscape is constructed, managed and designed. The essays attempt a synthesis that ranges from the physical and biophysical through landuse to perception and cultural and linguistic analysis. The landscapes of Australia are challenging in that our culture, essentially European in origin, is both immensely enriching yet, because generated in an environment vastly different from that of Australia, disabling. This requires of us a dual allegiance and competing loyalties and demands, often difficult to resolve. 254 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

The Madwoman's Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985, Germaine Greer
18 Germaine Greer The Madwoman's Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985
Picador 226788 Great Britain 1986 0330301497 / 9780330301497 Softcover Good Condition Always strong and fearless, Germaine Greer strikes right at the heart of the matter-be it John F. Kennedy and vaginal deodorants, rape and artificial insemination, cosmetic surgery, the death of Jimi Hendrix, or the famine in Ethiopia. This collection represents a mosaic of essays, long and short, some of which are appearing for the first time in print and all of which chafe the conventional and are bristling with argument. From the youthful liveliness of her sixties pieces, which "got up everybody's nose," to the depth and complexity of her later work, The Madwoman's Underclothes is a reflection both of an era and of the changing ideas and styles of Germaine Greer: "The essays on Brazil, Cuba, and Ethiopia represent my coming of age. Something like a coherent system of values is beginning to emerge after my years of wandering, although I have certainly not arrived at a set of articles of faith, and never will, I hope." Greer's opinions on social, political, and sexual trends and mores are tendered in her unique fashion-outspoken, with rapier wit and no tolerance for narrow-mindedness. But as explosive, angry, and often funny as these essays are, they also reveal tenderness and sadness and that emotion that underlies all of Greer's work-passionate commitment. 305 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Essays; Essays & Literary Criticism; ISBN: 0330301497. ISBN/EAN: 9780330301497. Inventory No: 226788. Paperback
