    Now in paperback, Larry McMurtry's fascinating and surprisingly intimate memoir of his lifelong passion of buying, selling, and collecting rare antiquarian books: a necessary and marvelous gift (San Antonio Express-News). Acclaimed author: Spanning a lifetime of literary achievement, Larry McMurtry has succeeded at a wide variety of genres, from coming-of-age novels like The Last Picture Show, to essays like In a Narrow Grave, to the reinvention of the Western on a grand scale like the Pulitzer Prizewinning Lonesome Dove. Here at last is the private McMurtry writing about himself: as a boy growing up in a largely bookless world, as a young man devouring the world of literature, as a fledgling writer and family man, and above all as one of America's most prominent bookmen. A work of charm, grace, and good humor: reading Books is like reading the best kind of diaryfull of wonderful anecdotes, amazing characters, spicy gossip, and shrewd observations. Like its author, Books is erudite, full of life, and full of great stories. Yet the most curious tale of all is the amazing transformation of a reluctant young cowboy into a world-class literary figure who has spent his life not only writing books, but rounding them up the way he once rounded up cattle. At once chatty, revealing, and deeply satisfying, Books is Larry McMurtry at his best.

Excerpt: ... He listened like a man pursued: and spoke in whispers. Margaret, my race is nearly run. I couldn''t finish it, without a parting word with you. Without one grateful word. What have you done? she asked: regarding him with terror. He looked at her, but gave no answer. After a short silence, he made a gesture with his hand, as if he set her question by; as if he brushed it aside; and said, It''s long ago, Margaret, now: but that night is as fresh in my memory as ever ''twas. We little thought, then, he added, looking round, that we should ever meet like this. Your child, Margaret? Let me have it in my arms. Let me hold your child. He put his hat upon the floor, and took it. And he trembled as he took it, from head to foot. Is it a girl? Yes. He put his hand before its little face. See how weak I''m grown, Margaret, when I want the courage to look at it! Let her be a moment. I won''t hurt her. It''s long ago, but--What''s her name? Margaret, she answered, quickly. I''m glad of that, he said. I''m glad of that. He seemed to breathe more freely; and after pausing for an instant, took away his hand, and looked upon the infant''s face. But covered it again, immediately. Margaret! he said; and gave her back the child. It''s Lilian''s. Lilian''s! I held the same face in my arms when Lilian''s mother died and left her. When Lilian''s mother died and left her! she repeated, wildly. How shrill you speak! Why do you fix your eyes upon me so? Margaret! She sank down in a chair, and pressed the infant to her breast, and wept over it. Sometimes, she released it from her embrace, to look anxiously in its face: then strained it to her bosom again. At those times: when she gazed upon it: then it was that something fierce and terrible began to mingle with her love. ...

    Writing and violence have been inextricably linked in Spanish America from the Conquest onward. Spanish authorities used written edicts, laws, permits, regulations, logbooks, and account books to control indigenous peoples whose cultures were predominantly oral, giving rise to a mingled awe and mistrust of the power of the written word that persists in Spanish American culture to the present day.In this masterful study, Aníbal González traces and describes how Spanish American writers have reflected ethically in their works about writing's relation to violence and about their own relation to writing. Using an approach that owes much to the recent "turn to ethics" in deconstruction and to the works of Jacques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas, he examines selected short stories and novels by major Spanish American authors from the late nineteenth through the twentieth centuries: Manuel Gutiérrez Nájera, Manuel Zeno Gandía, Teresa de la Parra, Jorge Luis Borges, Alejo Carpentier, Gabriel García Márquez, and Julio Cortázar. He shows how these authors frequently display an attitude he calls "graphophobia," an intense awareness of the potential dangers of the written word.
    Part of the Jewish Encounter series Rodger Kamenetz, acclaimed author of The Jew in the Lotus, has long been fascinated by the mystical tales of the Hasidic master Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav. And for many years he has taught a course in Prague on Franz Kafka. The more he thought about their lives and writings, the more aware he became of unexpected connections between them. Kafka was a secular artist fascinated by Jewish mysticism, and Rabbi Nachman was a religious mystic who used storytelling to reach out to secular Jews. Both men died close to age forty of tuberculosis. Both invented new forms of storytelling that explore the search for meaning in an illogical, unjust world. Both gained prominence with the posthumous publication of their writing. And both left strict instructions at the end of their lives that their unpublished books be burnt.   Kamenetz takes his ideas on the road, traveling to Kafka’s birthplace in Prague and participating in the pilgrimage to Uman, the burial site of Rabbi Nachman visited by thousands of Jews every Jewish new year. He discusses the hallucinatory intensity of their visions and offers a rich analysis of Nachman’s and Kafka’s major works, revealing uncanny similarities in the inner lives of these two troubled and beloved figures, whose creative and religious struggles have much to teach us about the significant role played by the imagination in the Jewish spiritual experience.

    The discovery of the Indies, wrote Francisco Lopez de Gomara in 1552, was "the greatest event since the creation of the world, excepting the Incarnation and Death of Him who created it."

This collection of essays, encompassing history, literary criticism, art history, and anthropology, offers a fresh and innovative approach to the momentous encounter.

    Scholars have only recently discovered that the human body itself has a history. Not only has it been perceived, interpreted, and represented differently in different epochs, but it has also been lived differently, brought into being within widely dissimilar material cultures, subjected to various technologies and means of control, and incorporated into different rhythms of production and consumption, pleasure and pain. The eight articles in this volume support, supplement, and explore the significance of these insights. They belong to a new historical endeavor that derives partly from the crossing of historical with anthropological investigations, partly from social historians' deepening interest in culture, partly from the thematization of the body in modern philosophy (especially phenomenology), and partly from the emphasis on gender, sexuality, and women's history that large numbers of feminist scholars have brought to all disciplines.

    These three books--Body Rags, Mortal Acts, Mortal Words, and The Past--are central to the life's work of one of the masters of contemporary poetry. Published here in one volume, they include many of Galway Kinnell's best loved and most anthologized poems. In a note, Galway Kinnell comments on the numerous revisions he has made to many of the poems for this edition.
    In this essential theoretical essay, Gerard Genette asserts that the object of poetics is not the text, but the "architext"--the transcendent categories (literary genres, modes of enunciation, and types of discourse, among others) to which each individual text belongs. In seeking to link these categories in a system embracing the entire field of literature, Western poetics has divided literature into three kinds: dramatic, epic, and lyric. This division, generally accepted since the eighteenth century, has been wrongly attributed to Aristotle with great detriment to the development of poetics. Here Genette disassembles this burdensome triad by retracing its gradual construction and distinguishes among the "architextual" categories that this division has long obscured. In so doing, Genette lays a firm foundation for future theorists of literary forms.
    Many have a deep passion for books, cherishing their form and content equally. Even the electronic book has not been able to change this. For books are more than a medium offering a container for words. This is the starting point for the German artist Dorothea Reese-Heim, who in 1983 discovered paper and later the book for her own art. The poetic forms Dorothea Reese-Heim finds to bring the book's aesthetic peculiarities to expression are of great beauty. Itself a book about books, this publication therefore exploits to the fullest the entire potential of its possibilities of representation, thus permitting the rich spectrum of Dorothea Reese-Heim's subtle and sensitive works to pass in lively review before our eyes. To this end, the essay by Karen Meetz literally grasps the body of the book. On the one hand, an aesthetic analysis clearly illuminates the effects of these remarkable book objects, while, on the other hand, the text plumbs the topic's manifold art-historical and cultural-historical ramifications.
