Ten Million Aliens

Ten Million Aliens

Barnes, Simon
Marble Arch Press, New York 2014

Life on planet Earth is weirder than we are capable of imagining, suggests Simon Barnes, and to prove his point, he introduces us to mollusks the size of buses, amorous slugs, bdelloid rotifers that haven't had sex for millions of years, and tardigrades - tiny creatures that can be boiled, frozen, and fired off into space without dying. Referencing Charles Darwin and David Attenborough but also James Joyce and Douglas Adams, Barnes brings together a miscellany of the world's creatures, admiring their diversity while seeking the unifying traits of them all.

The Kraus Project

The Kraus Project

Franzen, Jonathan; Kraus, Karl
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York 2013

A hundred years ago, Viennese satirist Karl Kraus was among the most penetrating and prophetic writers in Europe a relentless critic of the popular media's manipulation of reality, the dehumanizing machinery of technology and consumerism, and the jingoistic rhetoric of a fading empire. His followers included Franz Kafka and Walter Benjamin, yet he remained something of a lonely prophet, and few people today are familiar with his work. Fortunately, Jonathan Franzen is one of them, and here he presents and annotates his new translations of Kraus, with supplementary notes from Kraus scholar Paul Reitter and Austrian writer Daniel Kehlmann.
