The New York Times has said that "Jorie Graham's poetry is among the most sensuously embodied and imaginative writing we have," and this new collection is a reminder of how startling, original, and deeply relevant her poetry is. In Sea Change, Graham brings us to the once-unimaginable threshold at which civilization as we know it becomes unsustainable. How might the human spirit persist, caught between its abiding love of beauty, its acknowledgment of continuing injury and damage done, and the realization that the existence of a "future" itself may no longer be assured? There is no better writer to confront such crucial matters than Jorie Graham. In addition to her recognized achievements as a poet of philosophical, aesthetic, and moral concerns, Graham has also been acknowledged as "our most formidable nature poet" (Publishers Weekly). As gorgeous and formally inventive as anything she has written, Sea Change is an essential work speaking out for our planet and the world we have known.
A Little White Trim...
Olivia Neuman had hoped the worst was behind her after she broke her ankle, lost her chance to be a Rockette, and had to come home to Baltimore to live in the same city as her ex, Bobby (a.k.a. "Booby"). Of course, that was before she saw her face plastered all over billboards for Bobby's wildly popular cable show about an evil, conniving girlfriend named...Olivia. To top it off, the only job Liv can get is playing Mrs. Claus at Rossman's department store--a nightmare gig of wrangling bratty kids alongside a biker Santa. ...A Tight Leather Belt Single mom Cassie Derringer fantasizes about the lives of the wealthy women coming through the doors of Rossman's, lives of cashmere (sigh), winter white (practical--not!), well-behaved children (via cattle prods?) and involved dads (yeah, right). Cassie's son, Tyler, is a ball of wild energy, and she's sure it's because he has no contact with his father, a TV star. Cassie didn't know her own dad, but she's determined to give Tyler one. And when she finds a note with her Mrs.

The way in which we read Kant's Critique of Pure Reason has profound consequences for our understanding of his thought in relation to the work of other thinkers. Kant, Deleuze and Architectonics presents a unified reading of this text in order to respond to the concerns surrounding the method and arguments Kant employs. In showing us how the 'first critique' comes to make greater sense when read as a whole or in terms of its 'architectonic' unity, Edward Willatt breathes new life into a text often considered rigid and artificial in its organisation. On the basis of this reading, Kant's relation to Deleuze is revealed to be much more productive than is often realized. Deftly relating the unifying method of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason with Deleuze's account of experience, and using Kant's concern to secure the conditions that make experience possible to develop Deleuze's attempt to convincingly relate 'the actual' and 'the virtual', this book constitutes an important step in our understanding of Deleuze and his philosophical project.
