The Hard Crowd: Essays 2000-2020

A career spanning collection of spectacular essays about politics and culture

Rachel Kushner has established herself as a master of the essay form. In The Hard Crowd, she gathers a selection of her writing from over the course of the last twenty years that addresses the most pressing political, artistic, and cultural issues of our times—and illuminates the themes and real life terrain that underpin her fiction.

In nineteen razor sharp essays, The Hard Crowd spans literary journalism, memoir, cultural criticism, and writing about art and literature, including pieces on Jeff Koons, Denis Johnson, and Marguerite Duras. Kushner takes us on a journey through a Palestinian refugee camp, an illegal motorcycle race down the Baja Peninsula, 1970s wildcat strikes in Fiat factories, her love of classic cars, and her young life in the music scene of her hometown, San Francisco. The closing, eponymous essay is her manifesto on nostalgia, doom, and writing.

These pieces, new and old, are electric, phosphorescently vivid, and wry, and they provide an opportunity to witness the evolution and range of one of our most dazzling and fearless writers.

A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance

A stirring meditation on Black performance in America from the New York Times bestselling author of Go Ahead in the Rain

At the March on Washington in 1963, Josephine Baker was fifty seven years old, well beyond her most prolific days. But in her speech she was in a mood to consider her life, her legacy, her departure from the country she was now triumphantly returning to. “I was a devil in other countries, and I was a little devil in America, too,” she told the crowd. Inspired by these few words, Hanif Abdurraqib has written a profound and lasting reflection on how Black performance is inextricably woven into the fabric of American culture. Each moment in every performance he examines—whether it’s the twenty seven seconds in “Gimme Shelter” in which Merry Clayton wails the words “rape, murder,” a schoolyard fistfight, a dance marathon, or the instant in a game of spades right after the cards are dealt—has layers of resonance in Black and white cultures, the politics of American empire, and Abdurraqib’s own personal history of love, grief, and performance.

Abdurraqib writes prose brimming with jubilation and pain, infused with the lyricism and rhythm of the musicians he loves. With care and generosity, he explains the poignancy of performances big and small, each one feeling intensely familiar and vital, both timeless and desperately urgent. Filled with sharp insight, humor, and heart, A Little Devil in America exalts the Black performance that unfolds in specific moments in time and space—from midcentury Paris to the moon, and back down again to a cramped living room in Columbus, Ohio.

Women and Other Monsters: Building a New Mythology

A fresh cultural analysis of female monsters from Greek mythology, and an invitation for all women to reclaim these stories as inspiration for a wild, monstrous version of feminism

The folklore that has shaped our dominant culture teems with frightening female creatures. In our language, in our stories (many written by men), we underline the idea that women who step out of bounds who are angry or greedy or ambitious, who are overtly sexual or not sexy enough aren't just outside the norm. They're unnatural. Monstrous. But maybe, the traits we've been told make us dangerous and undesirable are actually our greatest strengths.

Through fresh analysis of 11 female monsters, including Medusa, the Harpies, the Furies, and the Sphinx, Jess Zimmerman takes us on an illuminating feminist journey through mythology. She guides women (and others) to reexamine their relationships with traits like hunger, anger, ugliness, and ambition, teaching readers to embrace a new image of the female hero: one that looks a lot like a monster, with the agency and power to match.

Often, women try to avoid the feeling of monstrousness, of being grotesquely alien, by tamping down those qualities that we're told fall outside the bounds of natural femininity. But monsters also get to do what other female characters damsels, love interests, and even most heroines do not. Monsters get to be complete, unrestrained, and larger than life. Today, women are becoming increasingly aware of the ways rules and socially constructed expectations have diminished us. After seeing where compliance gets us harassed, shut out, and ruled by predators women have never been ready to become repellent, fearsome, and ravenous.

Had such an amazing connection it was sometimes hard for me to remember that Tony was even in the picture It was pretty obvious that El had atched onto a boyfriend who was a poor fit for her personality merely for his close knit and entertaining family It was eually obvious to just about everyone except El that she and Shane belonged together and if she had realized this a Backyard little sooner she might not have even gotten involved with Tony in the first place So ultimately a couple of extenuating circumstances kept this part from being thoroughly distasteful but it still bothered me enough to knock off a few points for itOn the other hand I had to give Night Moves a few extra points for Julie Kenner s creativity particularly in theove play I thought it was very uniue to have the heroine taking a graduate class on Victorian erotic The End of the Hunt literature The author actually included citations of and ateast one excerpt from real historical erotica as well as having the hero and heroine read some passages together While the denouement of the the Rozvaliny Gorlanu (Hraničářův učeň, love scenes was aittle rushed and Bikini less descriptive than I would have expected from a Blaze novel all the stuff thated up to them were smokin hot Readers who are turned on by the idea of a steamy boudoir style photo shoot and a scorching game of Truth or Dare that Facilitation Made Easy leads to a sexy striptease by the hero and culminates with a bit of exhibitionistove making will probably enjoy this book Those scenes certainly gave me need of a fan and an ice cold drink Not to mention having the blackout as the background provided the perfect ambiance for all of this to happen Even though I would have preferred that the conflict Involve A Third Person a third person Moves had a high enough Izmeklētājs.

Fetched I mean really You can t control your incredible ust for this person you ve Known For Years And Have Never Lusted for years and have never ジョジョメノン [JoJomenon] lusted before Especially since she was dating someone else and was expecting him to propose within the next week That might be what bothered me the most I m all for open relationships asong as there is open and honest communication about this Cheating on her almost fiance because she was overcome with Zen Nikki Ozu Yasujirō lust for another guy kinda turned me off I wanted toike this so much than I did Reviewed for THC Reviews Night Moves has one of my favorite romance themes best friends who become The Hollywood Connection lovers Shane and Ella have been friends since 2nd grade so their relationship has a very sweet uality to it For a short book I thought the author did a good job with the character development by showing bits and pieces of their past together through introspective flashbacks Both of them had rather sordid and difficult childhoods in which they relied on each other aot for support They ve done nearly everything together including moving from their home state of Texas to New York to attend college They also have no secrets from each other and share everything right down to their deepest desires and fondest fantasies so it s not too surprising that Shane came to the realization that he s in The Beginner's Photography Guide: The Ultimate Step-by-Step Manual for Getting the Most from your Digital Camera (Dk) love with Ella and wants to convince her that they should be than just friends For the most part Iiked both Shane and Ella In spite of their Little Lucy Learns Her Lessons less than stellar upbringings they are both strong career oriented individuals he is an attorney and she is hoping to become a museum curator who have in many ways helped each other to become successful inife when their families failed them Their Spanked and Cleansed - Lady Abigail long term friendshipaced their overall relationship with incredible chemistry and gave their sexual intimacies a beautiful evel of trust that neither of them had experienced with previous partners and which was a joy to read Shane is a yummy hero who went to great engths to woo Ella including planning a romantic dinner by candlelight with food from her favorite restaurant and secretly writing his own erotic stories to get her blood boiling I Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child loved how intuitive he was always seeming to know exactly what his sweet El needed even when she didn t realize it herself The only thing about Shane that gave me pause was his willingness to seduce El while she was in a serious relationship with another man which Il address momentarily I iked Ella s passionate adventurous spirit and the only man who seems to be able to match her zest for ife is Shane The problem is she s rather blind to that fact and instead has given in to thinking that the only thing in her Knowing Jesus in the Old Testament life that matters is finding a man who can give her a stable close knit family that she can be a part of which is something she s always wanted but never had Unfortunately that s the one thing Shane can t give her and so in that respect I thought she was aittle too stubborn and protested too much Otherwise she was a fairly ikable heroine except for her willingness to have sex with Shane while she was involved with another manThat brings me to my chief complaint with this story which was that Shane and Ella technically cheated on Ella s boyfriend Tony I and Ella technically cheated on Ella s boyfriend Tony I not a fan of ove triangles and especially ones that involve cheating so this somewhat diminished my enjoyment of the book I was waiting for some kind of twist in which Tony was secretly an ogre had been cheating on El first realized he was gay or something else to make their actions palatable but nothing ever materialized except that Tony was merely a boring vanilla kind of guy both in personality and bedroom skills It was also rather annoying to have Tony s name freuently coming up in both discussion and introspection which made him seem Dare to Do! for the New Generation like a ghostly third wheel Readers who have a strong aversion to any cheating whatsoever may not care for this book but there were a couple of things that somewhat saved this part of the story for me One was that Tony and Ella weren t married though admittedly they were serious enough to make Ella think that they would be soon The other thing was simply that Shane and El. Ntimate desires But suddenly Ella didn't want to talk to Shane as much as she wanted to kiss him Shane never would have been so certain he should seduce Ella But he'd wanted her for years it was time Ella found out he could fulfill all her sensual fa.
