Essay Collections on House, Tradition and All the things in Between

Maybe those people will ALWAYS be
Author Luc Sante
328 mas. Verse Chorus. Paper, $ 19.95.

Sante’s writing is an interesting, dark-filled, interesting, bizarre, intriguing and bizarre cabinet that has transcended her imagination, especially in the last 15 years as a writer and critic.

The book opens with a few thought-provoking ideas on Sante’s East Village youth movement, and has an interesting artistic and cultural appeal, but its vivid pieces avoid simple sections. The photo-sharing section also includes photographs, photonovelas and several photographs of bathing people. One mixed story records the collections of former 45-rpm collectors. Another short piece sees the party fun of a crowd gathered at a road accident scene.

Sante’s traditional filters capture what some may think is absurd or unnecessary. True, her tastes include the likes of Sophie Calle, HP Lovecraft and other celebrities here and in the past, but even they are screened for their character, and their presence at the convention only exacerbates the need for doodles and shoe stores she also shows us. Maybe everyone can write well about Patti Smith; Sante’s love for cultural boundaries is one gift.

In one short story, Sante writes about the famous photographer, Bruce Barone, calling his portraits of American cities in the 1970s and 80s “antiquities of the ancient world … written so briefly and obscurely that sometimes This is how it feels when I read what Sante wrote in. * A lot of wealth, reclaimed from the dark, including the moments of his life.

YEARS OF SKIN
Author Dubravka Ugresic
Translated by Ellen Elias-Bursac
236 mas. Open Letter. Paper, $ 16.95.

“If anyone thinks this is a bad time, he is right,” Croatian Ugresic author wrote in his series “The Age of Skin.”

Written between 2014 and 2018, these stereotypes of post-Soviet democracy reach politics, art, media, popular culture, femininity, fashion and technology with a cohesive theme: cultural decline, or especially democratic groups, social self-destruction.

For nearly three decades, Eastern European “ideology” – all of its ideals on morals and culture – has been marred by violence that begins with war and genocide to the point of outrage, such as corrupt politicians who pretend to be artists. Journalists are largely to blame for the depth of this sinking; “Thanks to the media, stupidity has now taken place around the world,” Ugresic wrote. As a result, traditional memory has been eliminated; political corruption is widespread; celebrities were promoted to hero; oppression and criticism.

The most important word in Europe, Ugresic brings a deep sense of frustration and patriotism after communism, often written with a funny, interesting word translated by Elias-Bursac. Do Lenin’s mother, Adele’s unemployed and Croatian own any business by writing one story together? In this book, yes. Mokondwa.

Not so long ago, this gathering probably stimulated interest in American democracy, characterized by its hope, of enlightenment around the world. Today, it is amazing to read about the Soviet Union’s departure from the Soviet Union and our self-realization, including the horrific notion of Russia’s involvement in our wars. Ugresic’s warning went unanswered.

“The real danger begins,” he writes, “when we begin to feel that there is no other place … that the whole place is evil.”

IT’S A CRY
Reminder in Notes
Author Megan Harlan
171 mas. University of Georgia. Paper, $ 22.95.

In an article published in his series “Mobile Home,” Harlan cited a well-known book on housing that differentiates mobile homes, as a denial of their legitimacy. “We can’t just sit and walk, park and sleep here,” he writes, reflecting on the voice that stopped the house and the chassis. Viewed in this way, mobile homes are less stable and therefore do not cultivate neighboring areas or areas; people may want to travel, but the working group needs a foundation.

Harlan and his family moved 17 times as a child, following in his father’s footsteps as an engineer on four continents. Inconsistency defines his teenage life, and it is a difficult feeling for letters related to the subject. His reflection on the meaning of space, house and house is based on its migratory properties, as if movement can be said to underpin everything.

Her story is available as Harlan examines the countries she went through, what affected her family, her father’s alcohol abuse and death, and their commitment to raising their child differently. These stories are compiled by very moving themes, including nomadic species, ancient ruins of Saudi Arabia and Joseph Eichler’s Northern California mansions. Spiders, trailers and Dorothy of Kansas all help define what a house is, as well as what it can mean to own.

And what is a house? Is it an idea, a design? For many years, Harlan could not say where he was, because his answer was difficult. Probably, these records show, at home and after all our places – everyone and wherever we can be found.

A VERY GOOD FRIEND
Twenty Years of Stunning Unstable
Edited by Zoë Bossiere and Dinty W. Moore
256 noon. Rose Metal. Paper, $ 16.95.

Paper transcripts followed the work in the late 1990s when, in anticipation of the online revolution, a “flash” display began to appear. In the future when it suddenly appears, blog posts incorporate notes; Books can move readers yes or cease to exist, and hyperlink links can produce articles as we know them. Reading through all these windows, in other words, can temporarily hinder our patience.

Instead of leading to written destruction, technology has so far produced a number of documents on how new and traditional forms exist. Evidence of this can be kept in your hands, in a new story – published in print, to a lesser extent – from Brevity, an online magazine based on the first realization of change.

Twenty years later, the spread of images, sent by 84 authors selected by the Brevity writers at the conference, endures mainly because the writers are well versed in the profession. There is no formula; these 750 or less verbal entries include lists and “found” notes, medical notes, researched notes, and even graphic representations. They work because they work well on sentences, cutting the words without giving up their energy to solve them.

The temporary setting for reading this anthology is different from just experiencing it, but it is also beautiful, like down a street with bright windows. A two-year-old boy with a bear, drunken men fighting in the street, with 30 stone-clad peaks living on Easter Island. Very beautiful, very sad – all the experiences just go by, and leave the way it goes.
