Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism #1 Book of the Year from Brain Pickings Named a best book of the year by NPR, Newsweek, Slate, Pop Sugar, Marie Claire, Elle, Publishers Weekly, and Lit Hub A dazzling work of biography, memoir, and cultural criticism on the subject of loneliness, told through the lives of iconic artists, by the acclaimed author of The Trip to Echo Spring. When Olivia Laing moved to New York City in her midthirties, she found herself inhabiting loneliness on a daily basis. Increasingly fascinated by the most shameful of experiences, she began to explore the lonely city by way of art. Moving from Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks to Andy Warhol’s Time Capsules, from Henry Darger’s hoarding to David Wojnarowicz’s AIDS activism, Laing conducts an electric, dazzling investigation into what it means to be alone, illuminating not only the causes of loneliness but also how it might be resisted and redeemed. Humane, provocative, and moving, The Lonely City is a celebration of a strange and lovely state, adrift from the larger continent of human experience, but intrinsic to the very act of being alive.

How do people deal with diversity in deprived and mixed urban neighbourhoods? This edited collection provides a comparative international perspective on superdiversity in cities, with explicit attention given to social inequality and social exclusion on a neighbourhood level. Although public discourses on urban diversity are often negative, this book focuses on how residents actively and creatively come and live together through micro-level interactions. By deliberately taking an international perspective on the daily lives of residents, the book uncovers the ways in which national and local contexts shape living in diversity. The book will be a valuable resource for researchers and students of poverty, segregation and social mix, conviviality, the effects of international migration, urban and neighbourhood policies and governance, multiculturality, social networks, social cohesion, social mobility, and super-diversity.

I managed to help everyone in Litya. I even made a friend. Squall is stubborn, but I like him. I’m happier than I should be about him escorting me to the coast so I can board a ship and cross the Great Sea. I’m one step closer to the Cloud. But we get caught in a fluke desert storm that blows us far off course, and we become a hunter’s target. I even get separated from Squall. When I’m lost and alone, I meet an unassuming king. He’s a mere boy who was cast away by his people. I shouldn’t meddle and risk making things worse for him, but he needs help as much as I do. And I don’t know how to mind my own business. The Soul Seer Saga is a sci-fi/fantasy adventure with an overarching dystopian story. The books must be read in order.

This book is about the last few weeks in the life of Richard Henry Harvey, a gentleman farmer and naval officer whose estate, Long Halls, and its range of woods and farms are situated near the village of Branworth in Lincolnshire. Richard Harvey was born in March 1936 and inherited Long Halls on the death of his father in September 1945. The Harvey family descend directly from a member of the knights array, who fought with William of Normandy in 1066, and there has been a continuous line of the family living at Long Halls since that time. Richard Henry Harvey was educated initially by private tutor, then at Huntingdon School, and finally at Lincoln College, Oxford, after which he entered the Royal Navy as a career officer. As with many generations of his family, Harvey was granted the Monarch’s Special Commission, and over the years, undertook numerous missions for both his monarch and the government. This book covers but a few weeks at the end of his life and is short on the detail of his younger days. Richard Harvey is an enigmatic man; his life is lost in a welter of deeds and misdeeds that mask the true nature of the man. Finally, after years of searching and one failed marriage, he finds the girl that he loves, only for her to ripped away from him by those who would terrorise his country and his home.

An examination of how artists have combined performance and moving image for decades, anticipating our changing relation to images in the internet era. In Performing Image, Isobel Harbison examines how artists have combined performance and moving image in their work since the 1960s, and how this work anticipates our changing relations to images since the advent of smart phones and the spread of online prosumerism. Over this period, artists have used a variety of DIY modes of self-imaging and circulation—from home video to social media—suggesting how and why Western subjects might seek alternative platforms for self-expression and self-representation. In the course of her argument, Harbison offers close analyses of works by such artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Yvonne Rainer, Mark Leckey, Wu Tsang, and Martine Syms. Harbison argues that while we produce images, images also produce us—those that we take and share, those that we see and assimilate through mass media and social media, those that we encounter in museums and galleries. Although all the artists she examines express their relation to images uniquely, they also offer a vantage point on today's productive-consumptive image circuits in which billions of us are caught. This unregulated, all-encompassing image performativity, Harbison writes, puts us to work, for free, in the service of global corporate expansion. Harbison offers a three-part interpretive framework for understanding this new proximity to images as it is negotiated by these artworks, a detailed outline of a set of connected practices—and a declaration of the value of art in an economy of attention and a crisis of representation.

Jim Mathews is a high school senior in a small town near Little Rock, Arkansas, and his future doesn?t look bright. He works a variety of odd jobs to help support his mother. His grades aren?t exemplary, but at least he graduates. On a whim, he joins the US Marine Corps, and on the last day of August in 1940, he ships out to boot camp in Parris Island, South Carolina. At the time, talk of war is on the horizon, but Mathews has no idea of what he will eventually face. Brave Are the Lonely follows the course of his military career?from boot camp to advanced infantry training and Officer?s Candidate School Training at Quantico, Virginia, to tours of duty in four fierce, major battles, including Roi-Namur, Saipan, Tinian, and Iwo Jima, where he is awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. It also shares the story of his personal life?how he meets his wife Helen and how he spends his postwar years crisscrossing the country on behalf of the government, recalling his retirement from the military and his life as an educator in a relatively obscure small town in Georgia. This historical novel provides insight into the battles in the Pacific during World War II and pays tribute to the men who gave their lives.

A New York Times bestseller: "Udall masterfully portrays the hapless foibles and tragic yearnings of our fellow humans." —San Francisco Chronicle Golden Richards, husband to four wives, father to twenty-eight children, is having the mother of all midlife crises. His construction business is failing, his family has grown into an overpopulated mini-dukedom beset with insurrection and rivalry, and he is done in with grief: due to the accidental death of a daughter and the stillbirth of a son, he has come to doubt the capacity of his own heart. Brady Udall, one of our finest American fiction writers, tells a tragicomic story of a deeply faithful man who, crippled by grief and the demands of work and family, becomes entangled in an affair that threatens to destroy his family’s future. Like John Irving and Richard Yates, Udall creates characters that engage us to the fullest as they grapple with the nature of need, love, and belonging. Beautifully written, keenly observed, and ultimately redemptive, The Lonely Polygamist is an unforgettable story of an American family—with its inevitable dysfunctionality, heartbreak, and comedy—pushed to its outer limits.
