8. Elevenses [2017]

Book
20 unnumbered pages : color illustrations ; 33 cm
"'Trevor and I had wanted to do a collaboration for Granary for some time. I had fooled around before with a longish, prosy poem in the form of a diary--this one is and isn't--and while Trevor was fashioning his gorgeous images, I did a good deal of writing. The book really came together, and acquired something of a shape, after we hit upon the title. Not only do we both love the word elevenses, which the British use for their late morning pick-me-up; for a number of years Trevor and I have been meeting for coffee (and a walk in good weather) at 11:00 a.m. So the title seemed perfect for our collaborating in print (with no coffee stains marring Steve's beautiful production).'--Charles North"--Publisher's website.

Life in the parched landscape of El Paso is the setting for this book of stories about people navigating their way through dysfunctional lives with the help of friends and family-people like Monica Montoya, a housewife and mother whose affair leaves her pregnant, causing her to revisit the legacy of her father, a man who maintained two separate families on either side of the Mexican-American border. In spite of their bad choices, the characters in this collection never give up.

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the 1966 FIFA World Cup, hosted in England. Unlike previous literature, which has tended to focus activities on the field, this book brings an institutional level approach to organizing the 1966 FIFA World Cup and examines the management process in the buildup and execution of the event. This intriguing new volume looks at the first significant UK government intervention in football and how this created a significant legacy as the government started to take a real interest in leisure facilities and stadium safety as policy areas after this competition. Foundations of Managing Sporting Events will be of considerable interest to research academics working on aspects of post war British, Imperial, and World history including sport, social, business, economic, and political history.

Xbox videogamer cholo cyberpunks. Infants who read before they talk. Vatos locos, romancing abuelos, border crossers and border smugglers, transvestites, drug kingpins, Latina motorbike riders, philosophically musing tweens, and so much more. The stories in this dynamic bilingual prose-art collection touch on the universals of romance, family, migration and expulsion, and everyday life in all its zany configurations. Each glimpse into lives at every stage-from newborns and children to teens, young adults, and the elderly-further submerges readers in psychological ups and downs. In a world filled with racism, police brutality, poverty, and tensions between haves and have-nots, these flashes of fictional insight bring gleaming clarity to life lived where all sorts of borders meet and shift. Frederick Luis Aldama and graphic artists from Mapache Studios and illustrator Jaime Hernandez give shape to ugly truths in the most honest way, creating new perceptions, thoughts, and feelings about life in the borderlands of the Americas. Each bilingual prose-art fictional snapshot offers an unsentimentally complex glimpse into what it means to exist at the margins of society today. These unflinching and often brutal fictions crisscross spiritual, emotional, and physical borders as they give voice to all those whom society chooses not to see.

"For this imaginative project, images by the renowned Los Angeles artist John Baldessari were the inspiration for a new work of fiction by novelist and screenwriter William Bentley. First, Baldessari produced twenty photo-collages based on stills from B-movies, in a mode familiar to his admirers. Next, Bentley imagined twenty scenes to go with them. The result is a 200-page book that showcases Baldessari's art and Bentley's flair as a comic writer with a deep understanding of American movies. Arion's painstaking craftsmanship is applied to this mock screenplay"-- Publisher's website.

Critical theory and popular wisdom are rife with images of surveillance as an intrusive, repressive practice often suggestively attributed to eastern powers and opposed to western liberalism. Hollywood-dominated global media has long promulgated a geopoliticized east-west axis of freedom vs. control. This book focuses on Asian and Asia-based films and cinematic traditions obscured by lopsided western hegemonic discourse and-more specifically-probes these films' treatments of a phenomenon that western film often portrays with neo-orientalist hysteria. Exploring recent and historical movies made in post-social and anti-Communist societies such as China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam and South Korea, the book picks up on the political and economic concerns implicitly underlying Sinophobic and anti-Communist Asian images in Hollywood films while also considering how these societies and states depict the issues of centralization, militarization and technological innovation so often figured as distinctive of the difference between eastern despotism and western liberalism.
