From A to Z, that is from Arendt to Zizek, a slew of new and classic titles arrived in Graduate Services in November. We are talking about books by writers, like Arendt and Zizek, that need no first name introductions: Derrida, Deleuze, Foucault, Kristeva, Moliere. You get the idea. And these books are filled with them–ideas that is. Besides the French holding down the fort, we got Hemingway’s reconstructed/restored memoir about his days in Paris as back up. Reconstructed you say…and restored? You got A.E. Hotchner(Hemingway’s friend and biographer)’s take here–reconstructed (bowdlerized). And Sean Hemingway’s take here (restored and keeping the world safe for grandma). But why not just come here and spend a few hours revisiting a book from an American great in order to make up your own mind. Just in case you get too machoed out in the reading though–Hemingway can do that to the best of us–we got this to help you recalibrate. Enjoy.
