Meet A.K. Swift, a working-class war veteran and family man who is haunted by visions of nuclear apocalypse. When matters of conscience determine that he can no longer support the State-sponsored institutions that create the machines that threaten the living, A.K.decides to stop paying. Trouble is, he's not a very good tax resister. He forgets to attend the meetings and doesn't bother to fill out the proper forms. Now he worries there may be consequences. From the dustbin of Cold War protest literature, Bradley Smith s The Man Who Saw His Own Liver emerges as a heartfelt meditation on the time problem of the individual against authority. Rooted in libertarian theory and the moribund tradition of American transcendentalism, it is the story of an accidental rebel trembling in comic defiance under the yoke of God and State, and before the face Leviathan of modern Bureaucracy. Smith's writing is animated by a crisp and laconic prose-poetic hum. His is a uniquely personal canvass in which storytelling and gently wrought polemics interweave, seamly, with turns of magical realism coming to rest in that frail, strangely familiar liminal space, where ineffable exaltation and terror transcend the political. Originally conceived and performed for the stage in 1983, The Man Who Saw His Own Liver is presented by Nine-Banded books in novelized form.
It is appended with Smith s short story, Joseph Conrad and the Monster from the Deep. We hope you enjoy it.

Au printemps 2012, Djemila Benhabib a vécu au rythme du Caire et de Tunis. Avec la curiosité et la passion qu'on lui connaît, elle s'est imprégnée du quotidien et des préoccupations des habitants des deux capitales pour mieux dépeindre l'histoire en marche, celle de deux grands pays que de courageuses insurrections populaires ont débarrassés de leurs dictateurs. Au coeur du combat pour l'avènement de véritables démocraties dans le monde arabe et musulman, deux batailles décisives sont en cours : l'une pour la liberté des femmes, et l'autre, pour la séparation des pouvoirs politique et religieux. En Tunisie comme en Égypte, les victoires électorales de l'islamisme politique mettent en effet en grave péril des acquis laïques et progressistes obtenus de haute lutte par le passé. D'où viendra la lumière ? Djemila Benhabib est convaincue, avec d'autres, que ce sont les femmes qui achèveront les révolutions du printemps arabe. Voici un livre sensible et lucide qui nous fait découvrir les aspirations de millions de femmes et d'hommes qui ne souhaitent rien d'autre que l'égalité et la justice.
