Completed editions, restored editions, collected editions; editions of letters, sequels to sequels, some songs, reappraisals and reflections, as well as a bibliography and some poems. Telemorposising our mythologies; filling in the blanks and reinterpreting the lacuna. That's what's happening this month in Graduate Services. Enjoy.

It's February once again, which means it's time to take a break from the studies for at least one day and get on in the mood for love. Everyone knows words are the best way to express your love to that special Valentine of yours, but as graduate students and faculty members here at UC Berkeley, it's understandable that that Hallmark crap just doesn't cut it. Graffiti the halls of Wheeler if you really want to go down that road. But if you don't, and I trust you won't, come on over here to Graduate Services and read a few words from some of our new books to your loved one. You can start with Variations On The Body by Michel Serres--French ideas translated into the English Language--and move on through these five books until your off to see the Wizard as only Salman Rushdie can show you. What a day this Valentine's Day will be. Just remember to keep it down to a whisper; some people here will still be lonely. Enjoy.

It's the end of the year and the time for rebirth is upon us. No, I'm not talking about the Mayan Apocalypse. I'm talking about some old man love between Alain Badiou, Alasdair Gray, and George Bernard Shaw that's going to posthumously bring about the rebirth of history in the letters section of The Times. This is heavy stuff my friend. But then again, rebirthing always is. And did I mention it is only happening here in Graduate Services? Well, it is; so you better get here fast or you might be celebrating the holidays the old world way. And the new world is going to be so much cooler. You'll see. It's going to be happy hour all day long. Enjoy.
