A manner of being : writers on their mentors( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What do the punk singer Henry Rollins, the Guatemalan writer Rodrigo Rey Rosa, the American authors Tobias Wolff, Tayari Jones, and George Saunders, the Canadian writer Sheila Heti, and the Russian poet Polina Barskova have in common? At some point they all studied the art of writing deeply with someone. The nearly seventy short essays in A Manner of Being, by some of the best contemporary writers from around the world, pay homage to mentors--the writers, teachers, nannies, and sages--who enlighten, push, encourage, and sometimes hurt, fail, and limit their protégés. There are mentors encountered in the schoolhouse and on farms, in NYC and in MFA programs; mentors who show up exactly when needed, offering comfort, a steadying hand, a commiseration, a dose of tough love. This collection is rich with anecdotes from the heartfelt to the salacious, gems of writing advice, and guidance for how to live the writing life in a world that all too often doesn't care whether you write or not. Each contribution is intimate and distinct--yet a common theme is that mentors model a manner of being."--Publisher's description

Sanʹki︠a︡ : roman by Zakhar Prilepin( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sasha "Sankya" Tishin and his friends are part of a generation stuck between eras. They don't remember the Soviet Union, but they also don't believe in the promise of opportunity for all in the corrupt, capitalistic new Russia. They belong to an extremist group that wants to build a better Russia by tearing down the existing one. Sasha, alternately thoughtful and naïve, violent and tender, dispassionate and romantic, hopeful and hopeless, is torn between the dying village of his youth and the soulless capital, where he and his friends stage rowdy protests and do battle with the police. When they go too far, Sasha finds himself testing the elemental force of the protest movement in Russia and in himself.--P. [4] of cover
Erratic fire, erratic passion : the poetry of sportstalk by Pasha Malla( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erratic Fire, Erratic Passion is a collection of found poems composed of the words of professional athletes. The content of post-game interviews and sports chatter is so often meaningless, if not insufferable, and yet there are athletes like Metta World Peace who transcend lame clichEs and rote patter, who use language in surprising ways, who can be funny and shocking and insightful and alarmingly sincere-pure poetry. Muhammad Ali offered dazzling displays of lexical wizardry, and Allen Iverson's infamous "practice" rant shifted the post-game press conference from the banal to the absurd. This book is a celebration of these rare and exceptional moments. Various poetic forms and line-breaks highlight-or, in the words of Deion Sanders, "deem to set a candor on"--The sophisticated, sublime, and surprising performances of language made by professional athletes

Where bears roam the streets : a Russian journal by Jeff Parker( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeff Parker went to Russia intending to write a book about the country's resurgence as a major global superpower under President Vladimir Putin and about the emergence, for perhaps the first time in history, of a Russian middle class. But Russia tends to resist any attempt to pin it down. In the midst of the social and financial upheaval of the years that followed, the answers Parker sought only raised more questions: What was Russia? How did it work? How did people live? And how could they eat "kholodetz" (meat jelly)? As tensions strain once again between Russia and the West, Parker looks beyond the global politics to the heart of everyday life by giving us the story of his friendship with Igor, a barkeep and draft dodger. Igor is not the model perestroika-generation man, nor some kind of Putin-era everyman; he is, like The Dude in "The Big Lebowski," a man for his time and place. He is the metaphor for a Russia in crisis, and, as Keith Gessen wrote, his story is the story of Russia over the last twenty years. "Where Bears Roam the Streets" gives a moving account of a friendship between two people who grew up on the opposing sides of the Cold War and paints a smart, funny, revealing portrait of a country that continues to beguile"--Page 4 of cover
