At Large and At Small: Confessions of a Literary Hedonist, Anne Fadiman
4 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.

And Yet....Essays, Christopher Hitchens
13 Christopher Hitchens And Yet....Essays
Allen & Unwin 240191 Australia 2015 1760110078 / 9781760110079 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition Christopher Hitchens was an unparalleled, prolific writer, who raised the polemical essay to a new art form, over a lifetime of thinking and debating the defining issues of our times. As an essayist he contributed to the New Statesman, Atlantic Monthly, London Review of Books, TLS and Vanity Fair. Any publication of a volume of Hitchens' essays was a major event on both sides of the Atlantic.

These essays remind us, once more, of the fierce, brilliant and trenchant voice of Christopher Hitchens. 339 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

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.

Landprints - Reflections on Place and Landscape, George Seddon
20 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.
