A fashion industry icon, a violin prodigy, a Beat poet, an Iraq War veteran, a genocide survivor and a debut novelist on the precipice of adulthood: the authors in the following list may at first glance share little in common; however, what unites them all is the extraordinary power to sweep us up in the stories they tell, both factual and fictional. Upon moving to a small town in Michigan, Cat, the year-old narrator of Buntin's mesmerizing debut becomes quickly, inextricably entangled in the recklessly alluring world of her neighbor, a promiscuous and rule-breaking teenager a few years her senior. As Cat looks back on the year-long interval from the perspective of her present adulthood, Buntin weaves an intricate portrait of friendship, the power of influence and the kind of regret that can last a lifetime. Editor Bill Morgan collates Beat poet Allen Ginsberg's original and revelatory late '70s lectures for the Naropa Institute and Brooklyn College to reveal Ginsberg's fellow literati—the likes of Kerouac, Burroughs, Ferlinghetti—and their revolutionary art world as perhaps no historian has before. The celebrated short story writer and novelist offers 20 years of her nonfiction musings in this chronological record of her singular cultural voice. The topics of her essays run the gamut from the politics and personal stakes of the s date rape debates and her assessments of the artistic outputs of Updike, Dickens and Bjork to witnessing Sarah Palin's speech while covering the Republican National Convention. Regardless of subject, Gaitskill maintains the same incisive, addictive prose that makes each topic as compelling and compulsively readable as the last.
