$4.99


Mixed martial arts is the fastest-growing sport in America; all over the country new gyms are popping up and new viewers are tuning in to UFC matches. Although some dismiss it as brutal combat, its fighters are among the most dedicated athletes in any arena. But MMA also takes a heavy toll on the body, and it’s a rare fighter who can earn a living in the sport’s top ranks. Beast follows four high-level fighters at the gym American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida. Author Doug Merlino had unprecedented access, training alongside the men for two years, traveling to their matches, and eating in their homes. Mirsad Bektic is a young Bosnian refugee who started in karate as a boy in Nebraska and dreams of stardom. Jeff Monson is a battered veteran at forty-one, an outspoken, tattooed anarchist enjoying a bizarre burst of celebrity in Russia. Steve Mocco is a newcomer-a former Olympic wrestler from a close-knit, intellectual family. Finally, there’s Daniel Straus, an ex-con who has fought his way from nothing up to title contention. All will experience electrifying highs and career lows, and Merlino is there every step of the way. But along with blood-spattered front-row access, Merlino brings us a blunt examination of the history, culture, business, and meaning of professional cage fighting. Beast is a book for both the uninitiated and the hard-core fan, a fascinating journey into an often misunderstood world.

Compact


Compact


$15


Maurice Roche has been called “the most interesting novelist in France” (TriQuarterly), and Compact “one of the classics of our modernity” (Le Figaro).Certainly, Compact is one of the most compellingly original works of fiction of the postwar period. Composed-as if a musical score-of six intertwining narratives (each distinguished by its own voice, tense, and typeface), Compact has lost none of its remarkable freshness or groundbreaking innovation since its first appearance in 1966. But along with its striking originality, Compact is also a work rich in off-beat humor and great humanity. Compact is the story of a blind man living in a city of his own imagining. Confined to his deathbed, he engages in mental walks through the world’s capitals. These sightless excursions explode in a plethora of musical arrangements, sexual encounters, and mysterious funeral rites. Meanwhile, a Japanese collector and his transvestite assistant watch over the blind man in exchange-upon the latter’s death-for his magnificent tattooed skin. As a further ordeal, the protagonist finds himself prey to the whims of a sadistic French girl in the next apartment. A novelistic tour-de-force, Compact fully bears out La Tribune de Geneve’s judgment of Maurice Roche’s work as “the most important literary upheaval to hit France in the last decade.” “Maurice Roche is probably the most interesting novelist in France-interesting and truly gifted. . He is a writer’s writer creating novels for tomorrow out of a profound awareness of yesterday’s art.” (David Hayman, TriQuarterly) “This ‘compact’ text reflects Roche’s impressive virtuosity and soaring imagination in his experimentations with form and style. . An intriguing and demanding yet very interesting novel.” (Books Abroad) “Maurice Roche’s Compact. is a difficult yet very significant work. . Polizzotti’s remarkably successful translation, which respects all these

Babylon A.D.


Babylon A.D.


$5.46


In sci-fi thriller BABYLON A.D, Vin Diesel’s Toorop is an antihero who quotes the best of cinema’s bad boys from films such as THE GODFATHER and SCARFACE. But all the tattooed muscleman really wants to do is leave poverty- and violence-ridden Russia and return to his family’s home in upstate New York. However, he has been banned from his native America, so when a Russian mobster (a prosthetic-enhanced Grard Depardieu) offers him a job and a forged passport that will take him back home, he agrees, even though the mission seems close to suicide. He takes a strangely gifted orphan named Aurora (Melanie Thierry) from a Mongolian convent to Harlem, his only help being a nun-though it is a nun played by action star Michelle Yeoh. Thugs attack them on every leg of their journey, following them as they take car, train, sub, and snowmobile to ensure Aurora’s safety. BABYLON A.D works best when it’s revealing facets of its futuristic world, from the refugee-camp look of Russia to the high-tech gloss of a 22-million-people-strong New York City. Production designers Sonja Klaus and Paul Cross, as well as director Mathieu Kassovitz (GOTHIKA), deserve praise for creating settings that evoke memories of dystopian films from BLADE RUNNER to CHILDREN OF MEN. Kassovitz, who is most familiar to audiences as the object of affection in AMELIE, also adapted the script from the Maurice G. Dantec novel BABYLON BABIES with Eric Besnard. The book weighed in at over 500 pages, so there are times when it feels like something is missing in BABYLON A.D. with its brief 90-minute run time. In small roles, Depardieu and French favorite Charlotte Rampling (who plays a mysterious religious leader) provide substance and gravitas.

Celebrating Guadalupe


Celebrating Guadalupe


$1.99


The Virgin of Guadalupe has found her way into the hearts and lives of people all over the world. Much more than just a religious symbol, she has embodied protective love and cultural pride for her many followers since she first appeared to humble Juan Diego outside Mexico City in 1531. Her image has endured and gone on to grace the banners of 19th-century Mexican revolutionaries and César Chávez’s United Farm Workers Movement. Today, we not only find her in churches throughout North America and beyond, but also in people’s homes, cars, and tattoos, on devotional candles, tote bags, folk art, and much more. Jacqueline Dunnington and photographer Charles Mann have collaborated once again to create this stunning celebration of “Our Lady” in the lives of her people. 50 photographs.

Eve's Hollywood


Eve’s Hollywood


$16.91


Journalist, party girl, bookworm, muse, artist: by the time she’d hit thirty, Eve Babitz had been all of these things. Immortalized as the nude beauty facing Duchamp over a chessboard and as one of Ed Ruscha’s Five 1965 Girlfriends, it turns out that Babitz was a writer with stories of her own. In Eve’s Hollywood she gives us indelible snapshots of southern California’s haute bohemians, of surpassingly lovely high school ing?nues (“people with brains went to New York and people with faces came West”) and enviably tattooed Chicanas, of burnt-out rock stars in the Chateau Marmont. In her deceptively conversational prose, we are brought along on a ride through an LA of perpetual delight: to a joint serving the perfect taquito, to the corner of La Brea and Sunset where we make eye contact with a rollerskating hooker, through the Watts Towers, and shopping at Central Market. This “daughter of the wasteland” is here to show us that her city is no wasteland at all, but a glowing landscape, swaying with fruit trees and bougainvillea, buffeted by earthquakes and Santa Ana winds. By the end, there is little doubt that Babitz herself is proof there’s more to Hollywood than meets the eye.

Clark Kiwi Clan


Clark Kiwi Clan


$13.95


CLARK KIWI CLAN tells the true story of Captain Hugh Clark, who left Scotland as a cabin boy in 1829, and became a Master Mariner sailing the Pacific Ocean between Australia, America and New Zealand; transporting gold miners, militia, and Aborigines. His skill outran hurricanes, his stamina survived shipwrecks, and four brave Maori women saved him from drowning. Told using historical documents, family photos and contemporary illustrations, the reader is immersed into the real world of the early pioneers. The Sea is a harsh mistress, and although Captain Hugh sailed many sunny days, he finally felt the full fury of her tempest. His tragic death left three young orphans struggling to build early New Zealand, and fighting in the savage Maori Wars, where you might become the enemy’s lunch. Arriving from Scotland, Elizabeth Clark found herself in the middle of a battle. Her mother sat on their suitcase in the middle of the beach and wept, lamenting that the ferocious tattooed Maori warriors leaping nearby made “this place much worse than America and the Red Indians!” The family dug for Kauri gum, risked all in the gold mines, and speculated on the future of fledging settlements. Their documented court cases include bankruptcy, fraud, horse theft, and drunks fighting with the bailiff over the repossession of their sleeping blankets. The genealogical tables index all of Captain Clark’s descendants, including those brave soldiers who gave lives in war. The book finishes with a comic pictorial History of Scotland, Clan Cameron, and the Highland Feuds that give an entertaining background to the Sept of Clark, which became the Clark Kiwi Clan. This is not a novel; this is the Clark family history! (406 PAGES. 326 MAPS, PHOTOS & ILLUSTRATIONS.)

Light Freights


Light Freights


$14.14


This early work by William Wymark Jacobs was originally published in 1911 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. ‘Light Freights’ is a collection of short stories that contains tales such as ‘An Odd Freak’, ‘Private Clothes’ and ‘Sam’s Boy’. Jacobs worked as a clerk in the civil service before turning to writing in his late twenties, publishing his first short story in 1895. Most of Jacobs’ work appeared before the onset of World War I, and although the majority of his output was humorous in tone, he is best-remembered now for his macabre tales, particularly those contained in his 1902 collection The Lady of the Barge, such as ‘The Monkey’s Paw’ and ‘The Toll House’.

Encyclopedia of Body Adornment


Encyclopedia of Body Adornment


$88


People everywhere have attempted to change their bodies in an effort to meet their cultural standards of beauty, as well as their religious and/or social obligations. Often times, this modification or adornment of their bodies is part of the complex process of creating and re-creating personal and social identities. Body painting has probably been practiced since the Paleolithic as archaeological evidence indicates, and the earliest human evidence of tattooing goes back to the Neolithic with mummies found in Europe, Central Asia, the Andes and the Middle East. Adornments such as jewelry have been found in the earliest human graves and bodies unearthed from five thousand years ago show signs of intentional head shaping. It is clear that adorning and modifying the body is a central human practice. Over 200 entries address the major adornments and modifications, their historical and cross-cultural locations, and the major cultural groups and places in which body modification has been central to social and cultural practices. This encyclopedia also includes background information on the some of the central figures involved in creating and popularizing tattooing, piercing, and other body modifications in the modern world. Finally, the book addresses some of the major theoretical issues surrounding the temporary and permanent modification of the body, the laws and customs regarding the marking of the body, and the social movements that have influenced or embraced body modification, and those which have been affected by it. All cultures everywhere have attempted to change their body in an attempt to meet their cultural standards of beauty, as well as their religious and or social obligations.
