Putting The You In Usual: New Books In Graduate Services In September

New Books in Graduate Servcies. Like usual every month. Just sitting here on the shelves. Ready to be read. By you. There’s poetry: Ashbery turning a phrase of Rimbaud into Ashbery. Photography?: Derrida letting the spiel loose on the subject. Plays: Albee, Fry, Kureishi, and Williams have some words you can act out to. Playwright who hates himself: David Mamet’s has some secret knowledge you might not want to act on. UC Berkeley faculty publication: Beshara Doumani letting you know about academic freedom after September 11th now that it started fifth grade this fall. Another UC Berkeley faculty publication featuring philosophy: Suzanne Guerlac introducing you to Henri Bergson. More philosophy: Heidegger is going to do some introducing of his own–the world to thinking and poetizing. Still more philosophy: All eight volumes of the History of Continental Philosophy; and Lyotard is going to figure into all this discourse somehow. Modern Authors who are not playwrights or poets already mentioned above: Alasdair Gray, James Kelman, and Margret Drabble I present to you. Beckett: There’s always room for Beckett. Enjoy.
