Fran Lebowitz in ´´Public Speaking´´ A Martin Scorsese Picture Now an HBO(R) Documentary Film The Fran Lebowitz Reader brings together in one volume, with a new preface, two bestsellers, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, by an ´´important humorist in the classic tradition´´ (´´The New York Times Book Review´´) who is ´´the natural successor to Dorothy Parker´´ (British ´´Vogue´´). In ´´elegant, finely honed prose´´ (´´The Washington Post Book World´´), Lebowitz limns the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life--its fads, trends, crazes, morals, and fashions. By turns ironic, facetious, deadpan, sarcastic, wry, wisecracking, and waggish, she is always wickedly entertaining.
Randall Munroe describes ´´xkcd´´ as a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. While it´s practically required reading in the geek community, ´´xkcd´´ fans are as varied as the comic´s subject matter. This book creates laughs from science jokes on one page to relationship humor on another. ´´xkcd: volume 0´´ is the first book from the immensely popular webcomic with a passionate readership (just Google ´´xkcd meetup´´). The artist selected personal and fan favorites from his first 600 comics. It was lovingly assembled from high-resolution original scans of the comics (the mouseover text is discreetly included), and features a lot of doodles, notes, and puzzles in the margins. The book is published by Breadpig, which donates all of the publisher profits from this book to Room to Read for promoting literacy in the developing world.
Presenting the first volume of Alex Raymond´s modernist classic Rip Kirby from its start in 1946. Created by Alex Raymond when he was deactivated from the Marines after World War II, Rip Kirby was a fresh approach to the genre, a departure from the prevailing hard-boiled style of detective fiction. Rip Kirby was urbane and cerebral, and used scientific methods as often as he used his fists when solving crimes and mysteries. Edited and designed by Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney, the strips are reproduced from pristine syndicate proofs that will allow readers to see, for the first time, the full luxurious detail of Raymond´s brushwork. Includes a biographical and historic essay by Brian Walker, and an introduction by Raymond biographer and authority Tom Roberts.
