Februready Or Not, Here We Come: New Books In Graduate Services In February

Like almost always, some great books made it to the Graduate Services shelves in February. And being February, the month of the valentine, why not come down and be a part of the letters of T.S. Elliot, Langston Hughes, and Gertrude Stein. You're the reader, they are the writers, and with a little imagination these letters could be their valentines to you. Strike up a bond and in the process be woohooed. No need to limit yourself to books of letters though, jump on into any book here in Graduate Services and be a part of the February experience. Because like a valentine given needs a valentine given back to really be a worthwhile valentine, books need readers to really be worth their weight in dead treeness. Enjoy.

The Emperor's New Year's Clothes Rack: New Books In Graduate Services In January

The New Year brought resolutions to some of you, while it also brought new books to Graduate Services for some of you to use. What's more, these books have a shelf life longer than most resolutions, as they are usually much harder to break. I mean, just look around Graduate Services. You don't see many broken books lying around do you. There might be books about breaks, gaps, and various lacunae. But not many broken books. No, not very many broken books at all. And speaking of books, some good ones arrived while most students were still enjoying their winter break. The Baudrillard Dictionary came in holding hands with the new revised Deleuze Dictionary, and both were being escorted by a few new Foucault books. Poor little Les Annees d'Hiver, 1980-1985 by Felix Guattari followed hurriedly behind in his ill fitting English attire wondering what that damn Deleuze Dictionary had to say about him. Books by Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Jacques Ranciere strutted along in their au naturel French laughing a laugh no one could understand, while the volumes of animal poems by Ted Hughes ran wild around Allen Ginsberg's If Not Forever: A Letter to Jack Kerouac, which Wendell Berry's WIndow Poems pleaded with to be a bit more transparent as an animal poem nudged his nose between his pages. Yes, it was a crazy January here in Graduate Services and many other books had a good time too. Too many to talk about them all right now though. Let's just say The Empire of Signs might or might not have played a part in The Original Accident. Oh, and by the way, the Foucault books seemed to really like their ill fitting attire. Enjoy.
