A “strange, original, and utterly brilliant” tale of longing, madness, death, and psychological gamesmanship in the wake of 9/11 (Paul Auster). Henry, a New Yorker left destitute by circumstance and obsession, is plucked from vagrancy by a shadowy outfit with a decidedly niche business. They arrange staged murders of anxiety-ridden clients unhinged by the “events downtown” and seeking to experience—and live through—their own carefully executed assassinations. When Henry joins this nefarious crew, which includes a beautiful blonde tattoo artist named Tulip, contortionist twins, and a woman referred to only as “the knockout,” he becomes inextricably linked to its enigmatic ringleader. The mysterious herring connoisseur Mr. Kindt’s identity can be traced through twists and turns all the way back to the corpse depicted in Rembrandt’s The Anatomy Lesson. Substantive, stylish, and darkly comic, The Exquisite is a skillful dissection of reality, human connection, and the very nature of existence. “Laird Hunt is one of the most talented young writers on the American scene today.” —Paul Auster, author of the New York Trilogy “This noir labyrinth captures the post-9/11 gestalt of anxiety and hopelessness.” —Publishers Weekly “Hunt's novels shimmer and shift like reflections on wind-stirred water.” —Booklist “Hunt is an intellect and a great spinner of claustrophobic noir plots, and his erudite gumshoe yarn owes as much to Georges Perec and Gertrude Stein as it does to Paul Auster.” —The Believer

Exquisite Materials explores the connections between gay subjects, material objects, and the social and aesthetic landscapes in which they circulated. Each of the book's four chapters takes up as a case study a figure or set of figures whose life and work dramatize different aspects of the unique queer relationship to materiality and style. These diverse episodes converge around the contention that paying attention to the multitudinous objects of the Victorian world-and to the social practices surrounding them-reveals the boundaries and influences of queer forms of identity and aesthetic sensibility that emerged in the mid-nineteenth century and have remained recognizable up to our own moment. In the cases that author Abigail Joseph examines, objects become unexpected sites of queer community and desire.

Within the divided land of Cumerous, where each city has its own set of laws and rulers, an epic adventure is brewing as a terrific army threatens all life within Cumerous's borders. Cumerous is a land on the world of Vashundhara, where thousands of years ago a war between gods brought about the destruction of all unity between races. This tale begins when Quinn, a sorcerer of deadly magic, uses a huge army to try and conquer Cumerous and a magical land called Nexivian. The races unite when an isolated forest boy, a band of broken mercenaries, two powerful fairies, and a mysterious group of elves, race against time to stop the destruction of their homeland by the hands of Quinn. WHat no one realizes, however, is that a greater power lies in wait, one that could destroy the world of Vashundhara if not stopped. Within this cloud of chaos steps a lone figure: A prophet. As the last of his race, he might be the only strand of hope the world has left.

Descended from steeds brought over by the Spanish conquistadores, their untamable nature and enduring courage inspire awe in all who have the chance to see them.

The Exquisite Corpse of Asian America addresses this central question: if race has been settled as a legal or social construction and not as biological fact, why do Asian American artists, authors, and performers continue to scrutinize their body parts? Engaging novels, poetry, theater, and new media from both the U.S. and internationally—such as Kazuo Ishiguro’s science fiction novel Never Let Me Go or Ruth Ozeki’s My Year of Meats and exhibits like that of Body Worlds in which many of the bodies on display originated from Chinese prisons—Rachel C. Lee teases out the preoccupation with human fragments and posthuman ecologies in the context of Asian American cultural production and theory. She unpacks how the designation of “Asian American” itself is a mental construct that is paradoxically linked to the biological body. Through chapters that each use a body part as springboard for reading Asian American texts, Lee inaugurates a new avenue of research on biosociality and biopolitics within Asian American criticism, focused on the literary and cultural understandings of pastoral governmentality, the divergent scales of embodiment, and the queer (cross)species being of racial subjects. She establishes an intellectual alliance and methodological synergy between Asian American studies and Science and Technology Studies (STS), biocultures, medical humanities, and femiqueer approaches to family formation, carework, affect, and ethics. In pursuing an Asian Americanist critique concerned with speculative and real changes to human biologies, she both produces innovation within the field and demonstrates the urgency of that critique to other disciplines.
