(1 Ratings)
"A relentless, haunting mix of the brutal honesty of Camus and the tangible tragedy of Conrad - a postmodern existential triumph." Judging Paradise chronicles a single chaotic day in the... More > life of Frank Walker on the fictional Caribbean island of Santa Clara. Using Thanksgiving day as his backdrop, Dyer sends his protagonist on a strange 24-hour odyssey of violence, envy, and betrayal. The heat steadily rises culminating in a deadly conflagration “that seemed to spew forth from a hot fissure in the earth.” Dyer’s tightly packed novella, rich in descriptive detail, captures the inescapable effects of modernity’s corrosive stimuli on a host of characters drawn with unflinching precision, giving the reader an unvarnished look at the contradictory natural and human impulses we display and confront on a daily basis.< Less
Stranger Days By Rachel Kendall

Prints in 3-5 business days
'This is an intense, claustrophobic tale full of the sights, sounds and particularly smells evoked by a hothouse Parisian summer. Rachel Kendall takes her heroine ever deeper into an existential... More > crisis exacerbated by artistic failings and an uneven relationship with her male partner Z. The lush prose will convince you that you’ve been to every café and exhibition the city of lovers has to offer; the plot will wrench at both your heart and your psyche. This book is for everyone who’s ever read Camus or Sartre or who’s ever taken the metro or smoked a Gauloise by the Seine and wondered: who am I really? Kendall’s gripping narrative conjures strange and stranger days indeed.' (Allen Ashley, British Fantasy Award winner.)< Less
The Emma Bovary of Bailrigg By S. Kadison
eBook (ePub): $7.00
In its readiness to listen in on the speech of a wide variety of ordinary, working people, and to give us insights into the texture of their daily lives, S. Kadison's writing is not merely... More > unfashionable, it is like very little that is currently being written (or anyway published.) It does however remind me of that fine, scandalously neglected American writer, Nelson Algren. Like Algren, Kadison's socialism, while never reductive, is integral to his vision of what life is and what it could be. And like Algren, he makes satisfying stories out of what happens to happen to the kind of people whose existence, when it's noticed at all, is for the most part caricatured or sentimentalized. In other words, Kadison testifies to the value of Camus's claim that art is nobody's enemy, because it opens the prisons and gives voice to the sorrows and joys of all. John Lucas< Less
Peripheries In Transition: Bordeaux 3.0 & the Rocade By Urban Design Studio
eBook (PDF): $0.00
2013 - BORDEAUX VIENNE KUMASI - PERIPHERIES IN TRANSITION [Barbara Chénot Camus] In 2013, responding to the invitation of Vincent Feltesse, Columbia University Urban Design program dedicated... More > its studio on Bordeaux ring road : the Rocade. This final report presents the 4 projects realized in the framework of the spring studio and exhibited in May 2013 at Columbia University in New York. In December 2011, Vincent Feltesse, President of Bordeaux Agglomeration (CUB) gave a presentation at Columbia University for the opening of the « Mayors Institute on City Design »1 workshops dedicated to sustainable urban design. The two successive speeches of the deputy mayor of the city of New York, Cas Holloway, and CUB President highlighted in a startling shortcut, both the shared convictions on the role of the metropolis in developing new urban policies to face climate change, and the differences of approaches from each side of the Atlantic. This very gap was of interest for the Urban Design Program.< Less
Learned Helplessness in Rats: Tragicomedy and Existential Crisis à la Samuel Beckett in the Art of Bruce Nauman By John Everett Daquino
eBook (PDF): $12.50
In a recent article published in Modern Painters, Brian Dillon poses the following question: Is contemporary art possessed by the spirit of Samuel Beckett? Essentially, it is Beckett's mixing of... More > humor with the metaphysical questioning of disparity, and what it means to live in an incomprehensible world, that elucidates the spirit put forth by Dillon that is responsible for possessing contemporary art. This is also visible in the art of Bruce Nauman, a first-generation Conceptual artist whose work clearly demonstrates that this sense of existential crisis and tragicomedy in fine art is no recent phenomenon. As in the works of Samuel Beckett, Bruce Nauman's oeuvre reflects upon the absurdity of the human condition; a philosophy rooted in the thoughts of Kierkegaard and Camus. By looking closely at Nauman’s art over the past five decades, we can come to terms with the question put forth by Dillon, and what this reveals about the nature of the human condition in relation to contemporary art.< Less

Becoming and Being By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $11.81
This project is quite unusual in that it combines, in separate parts, autobiographical sketches of the author with biographical sketches of some of the writers who have influenced him most, including... More > Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Aldous Huxley, Arthur Koestler, Henry Miller, Hermann Hesse, and Lawrence Durrell. At the end, Mr O'Loughlin has appended a list of books borrowed from his local library during a twelve-year period coinciding, in part, with the composition of this project, so that one can compare his reading - and what he thought of it - with the original material here as a guide to how becoming eventually turned, for him, into being. All in all, a boldly original and inventive idea crowned by a photographic self-portrait taken several years ago when his hair was still quite long.< Less
Notebook from Talamanca (English) By E.M. Cioran
eBook (ePub): $3.99
E.M. Cioran was a Romanian-born French writer who rubbed shoulders with Sartre and Camus in the cafes of Paris, but who may have more in common with Spanish writer Miguel Unamuno. Fitting then is... More > our return to Cioran's unpublished notebook written during one of his seasonal vacations to Ibiza, an archipelago island of Spain. Cioran's love for Spain and the Spanish temperament can be seen repeatedly in his work, his references, and his style. Near worshipful of Miguel Unamuno's "On the Tragic Sense of Life," Saint Teresa of Avila and Cervantes, Cioran has a deep affinity for the charecteristcally Spanish melancholy and madness. Like a Rosetta Stone to Cioran's other, more surgical prose, which he perhaps hides behind, this Notebook reveals a more relaxed, intimate, raw and fragile side to Cioran. The Notebook from Talamanca by E.M. Cioran, is now available for the first time in this English translation (2017)< Less

More > Perfidious Albionics, entered no plea; the judges said: no plea entered means no charge to answer... This text was rejected in 1985 by the Abbey Theatre: “rather more tact is called for...” Tact! The author (faute de mieux) did it solo, around 200 perfs. “Epic poetic satire - savagely indignant” (F.O’Toole) “Brilliantly absurd” (The Scotsman) “Everything I been thinking for 40 years in an hour’n’a haef - how does he do it?” (Jungian lady in Buffalo NY). His Reality Ultimate the 1st & Last is arraigned in the Court of Tír na nÓg - "needless maltreatment of the human species" - prosecuted by a Camus type. The hearing results in a huge explosion; Lord Reason survives, as do some self-effacing pre-Celtic deities now practising as traditional musicians... Also in SAY NOTHING, Collected Works 2.< Less
