Adil Jussawalla | New Poems | Almost Island | 2009

“Your future’s got nothing to do with what’s happening to me.”

Douglass C. North, John Joseph Wallis, Barry R. Weingast | Violence and Social Orders: A Conceptual Framework for Interpreting Recorded Human History | Cambridge | 2009

Reading with this and this, and getting a sinking feeling c. 2000. Waiting for this on inter-library loan. Still haven’t read this.

Jeffrey Jullich | Portrait of Colon Dash Parenthesis | Litmus | 2010
Stacy Szymaszek | Autoportraits | omg! | 2008

Brandon Downing | Lake Antiquity | Fence | 2009

All consuming likenesses.

Randy Allen Harris | The Linguistics Wars | Oxford | 1995
Geoffrey K. Pullum | “The Evolution of Model-Theoretic Frameworks in Linguistics” | Posted version (pdf) | 2007
Geoffrey K. Pullum | “Computational Linguistics and Generative Linguistics: The Triumph of Hope over Experience” | Posted version (pdf) | 2009

A version of the book could be the basis for the perfect 20th century American linguistics course, but as is it’s a little too deliciously disinterested. The papers are the ripostal P.S.

Laura Moriarty | A Tonalist | Nightboat | 2010

Summative, and summoning. Ne plus ultra.

Martin Amis | Money: A Suicide Note | Jonathan Cape | 1984
Dennis Johnson | The Stars at Noon | Knopf | 1986

Plus ça change (et je vous remerci Jonny & Joshua).

Rachel Zolf | “L’amiral cherche une maison à louer” | Zinc Bar | 2010

Reveals a ground of contestation, a way in, that was not there before.

Tan Lin | Heath | Zasterle | 2008

A true and beautiful account (sauf le dig à cet endroit là) of recent forms of attention.
