Published: Melville House, 2/2015
I've accepted bureaucracy as a fact of life. As something to take for granted. As something insidious. Graeber's collection of essays explains why this is so. More importantly, he points us to new ways and tools to conceive of, and interact with, bureaucracy. This book left me buzzing with ideas and wanting to reread. One of my favorites of the year. -Alex

Book Recommendations

    Stepping into the mind of an obsessive literary introvert, who has devoted seventy years to building intimate relationships with books rather than with people, is not as claustrophobic of a reading experience as one might imagine. Instead, Aaliya's single-minded passion serves as a lens through which we experience the evolution of a city and her life as a Beiruti. Alameddine's novel is a delicate rendering of a reader's soul--a rumination on how art and literature function in our lives. For readers who appreciate books about books. -Erin K.

    Told by people who were actually part of the NYC art scene and knew Basquiat. This book captures the raw energy of the 1980s counterculture. Written by an accomplished Mexican-American poet, the story blends prose. poems, and transcriptions in telling the often heart-breaking love story of TWO larger than life artists. Understanding Basquiat's work is not necessary to enjoy this quick read. -Kalani
