Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea: New Books In Graduate Services In August

Look out (for what's) below. New books and new adventures in Graduate Services. Take a tour of Vietnam with Steinbeck, or a tour of French Philosophy with Badiou. Maybe look at the theater of the 30 Years' War with Brecht, or at the theater itself with Mencken and Wilder. Or just take a razor to all this with Amiri Baraka. Whatever. It's all cool. Bon voyage.

You've Got Mail: New Books In Graduate Services In June

You can say that four books is not a lot to get in a month. But what if two of those books were collections of letters? Would you still say that? I mean imagine how much mail this would be if each one of the letters in these two books arrived at your door. You'd think you were a teen pop star, or at least some sad public figure who survived a tragedy and ended up on a day time television talk show. Either way lots of mail would be coming your way and you would probably have your own mail room section at the local post office. That's the way I like to think about these four books: two books plus the condensed intensity of years of mail service. Enjoy.
