"Michael Mc Aloran’s ’All Stepped/ Undone’ is a canvas strewn with cut-up compositions like dismembered limbs that structure foreboding and challenging pieces of poetry. It... More > explores realms such as the negation of being, the catharsis of existence and a nothing that is embraced via the onslaught of flesh and bone that is the ennui of I. It’s almost Baudelaire’s spleen in autopsy, dissected with a Bataillean scalpel. Here, the language is vitriolic, and mosaic-like; a smashed stained glass window of a church – all beliefs of man refuted except for the excavation of oneself from a world aborted."

Sport In Abyssinia, the Mareb and Tackazzee By Dermot Mayo
eBook (ePub): $3.99
I present this book to the Public simply as an account of what I did and saw; and the impressions the different events and scenes made upon my mind. I have written it from notes and my daily Journal.... More > The stories that are in it were told me, some by Natives, others by Europeans; either over the camp fire, or to while away the tedium of a long march, or the ennui of life on board ship. These tales must be taken as they are written; they amused me much at the time, and if they only interest my readers I shall be content. I hope to revisit Abyssinia, but under more favourable auspices; and trust that better luck may attend me. I have spelt the names of places as they are pronounced, having had them repeated over several times to me by our excellent interpreter, Peter Brou. (From the Book's Preface)< Less

He was also briefly acting – Governor of the United States Virgin Islands in 1935. From1905 to 1923, he was a professor of literature at the University of Chicago, during which time he wrote thirteen novels. Among those considered to be his finest was Web of Life (1900).
