One of America’s leading humorists and author of the bestseller Closing Time examines his own obsession with books Joe Queenan became a voracious reader as a means of escape from a joyless childhood in a Philadelphia housing project. In the years since then he has dedicated himself to an assortment of idiosyncratic reading challenges: spending a year reading only short books, spending a year reading books he always suspected he would hate, spending a year reading books he picked with his eyes closed. In One for the Books, Queenan tries to come to terms with his own eccentric reading style—how many more books will he have time to read in his lifetime? Why does he refuse to read books hailed by reviewers as “astonishing”? Why does he refuse to lend out books? Will he ever buy an e-book? Why does he habitually read thirty to forty books simultaneously? Why are there so many people to whom the above questions do not even matter—and what do they read? Acerbically funny yet passionate and oddly affectionate, One for the Books is a reading experience that true book lovers will find unforgettable.

We usually think of cities as dense and vertical--but in reality most cities extend vast distances in a more horizontal fashion, with less density and lower-rising buildings. This book invites us to rethink the relationship between that center and its periphery, revealing that dispersed condition as a potential asset rather than a limit, offering the possibility of constructing a sustainable and innovative new urban dimension. Taking up the concept of "desakota," which describes areas--typically occurring in Asia--situated outside the traditional urban zone, The Horizontal Metropolis investigates such areas alongside examples in the United States, Italy, and Switzerland, highlighting the advantages of the concept and its relevance to economic, ecological, and social questions.

In the mid-1970s The Ramones reinvigorated a lifeless rock 'n' roll scene. Drugs, prostitution, teenage rebellion: the punk quartet wrote about what they knew--and the result was an explosive, radical new sound. Their honest, frenzied, and furious performances, not to mention their iconic look, would change rock music forever. Told through the eyes of Dee Dee Ramone, this graphic novel traces the life of the band's creative soul, spanning his troubled years at a military school in Germany, his early experiences with opiates, his family's relocation to New York, and his first encounters with fellow misfits Joey, Johnny, and Tommy. This fascinating graphic portrait of the band's development takes readers from The Ramone's dismal first show to Dee Dee's death in 2002, shortly after the band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
