This compilation of heretofore uncollected essays shows noted novelist and cultural critic Francine Prose at her most eloquent, incisive, and provocative.When Francine Prose's article, Scent of a Woman's Ink--which discussed how women writers are consistently underrepresented among the winners of major American literary awards--appeared in Harper's magazine thre e years ago, it touched off a storm of debate and counter-arguments, both in print and on the airwaves. In SCENT OF A WOMAN'S INK: ESSAYS BY FRANCINE PROSE, that article, along with Prose's equally pithy and incisive writings about the art and politics of writing and its at times jarring intersection with the culture it documents, confirms Prose's place as one of the most readable and relevant cultural critics writing today.From Learnining from Chekhov, her elegant and considered essay on the art and craft of writing to A Wasteland of One's Own, her controversial and much-discussed piece about the commercially created and dumbed-down women's culture for The New York Times, Prose's essays are at once instructive and revelatory, and always provocative.

Subjugated Knowledges examines the relation of print and culture in the nineteenth century and establishes a high level of interdependence between literature, journalism and gender. Laurel Brake scrutinizes the cultural politics and production of specific Victorian magazines and explores ways in which authorship is constructed in various forms of biography and periodical space is gendered. The book is divided into three sections - on literature and journalism, gendered space, and biography and authorship - in which the professionalization of critics and journals, women's magazines and the Savoy, and a wide range of authors, editors, journalists, publishers and journals are examined. A fascinating introductory chapter on 'Criticism and the Victorian Periodical Press' maps the territory. Subjugated Knowledges is an absorbing account of the cultural formations of Victorian journalism. It will be of interest to all students of Victorian literature and history, and of media, cultural and gender studies.

A glimpse into a beloved novelist’s inner world, shaped by family, art, and literature. In her fiction, Claire Messud "has specialized in creating unusual female characters with ferocious, imaginative inner lives" (Ruth Franklin, New York Times Magazine). Kant’s Little Prussian Head and Other Reasons Why I Write opens a window on Messud’s own life: a peripatetic upbringing; a warm, complicated family; and, throughout it all, her devotion to art and literature. In twenty-six intimate, brilliant, and funny essays, Messud reflects on a childhood move from her Connecticut home to Australia; the complex relationship between her modern Canadian mother and a fiercely single French Catholic aunt; and a trip to Beirut, where her pied-noir father had once lived, while he was dying. She meditates on contemporary classics from Kazuo Ishiguro, Teju Cole, Rachel Cusk, and Valeria Luiselli; examines three facets of Albert Camus and The Stranger; and tours her favorite paintings at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. In the luminous title essay, she explores her drive to write, born of the magic of sharing language and the transformative powers of “a single successful sentence.” Together, these essays show the inner workings of a dazzling literary mind. Crafting a vivid portrait of a life in celebration of the power of literature, Messud proves once again "an absolute master storyteller" (Rebecca Carroll, Los Angeles Times).

Washington Babylon describes in shocking detail the corruption of the political establishment, Republicans and Democrats alike. Journey through Babylon's darkest regions, and you will learn how Babylon's millionaire journalists connived to deny money to disabled children; how House Speaker Newt Gingrich really spells F-A-M-I-L-Y V-A-L-U-E-S, and how he spent his student days at Tulane campaigning for sex photos in a student newspaper; how Commerce Secretary Ron Brown lobbied for Haitian monster "Baby Doc" Duvalier and Guatemalan torturers; how the co-director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory searched for Atlantis, tried to train dolphins in ESP, suspected aliens were impregnating earth women; how Big Oil's tax-exempt foundations bought up the green elite while reaping millions from rape-and-pillage investments; how 80,000 lobbyists have bought out Babylon; and how Bill and Hillary Clinton struck a devil's pact with Big Money nearly twenty years ago.
