Spanish cartoonist Joan Cornella's first book, the viciously funny Mox Nox, has struck such a nerve on social media that his Facebook page has garnered over one million fan followers, three-quarters of a million Instagram followers, and a quarter-million Twitter followers. Zonzo continues the tradition with 50 all-new strips of smiling psychopaths (human and anthropomorphic) and side-splitting, hand-painted, full-color farce.
Multiculturalism in Israel
This book explores the literary traditions of four different cultural groups within Israeli society (Palestinians, Mizrahim, Russian-and Ethiopian-Israelis) to illustrate the diversity within a literary arena, commonly portrayed with a homogeneous narrative.
Cities and the Wealth of Nations
In this eye-opening work of economic theory, Jane Jacobs argues that it is cities—not nations—that are the drivers of wealth. Challenging centuries of economic orthodoxy, in Cities and the Wealth of Nations the beloved author contends that healthy cities are constantly evolving to replace imported goods with locally-produced alternatives, spurring a cycle of vibrant economic growth. Intelligently argued and drawing on examples from around the world and across the ages, here Jacobs radically changes the way we view our cities—and our entire economy.
Shimon Adaf and Lavie Tidhar are two of Israel’s most subversive and politically outspoken writers. Growing up on opposite sides of the Israeli spectrum – Tidhar in the north of Israel in the Zion-ist, socialist Kibbutz; Adaf from a family of religious Mizrahi Jews living in Sderot – the two nevertheless shared a love of books, and were especially drawn to the strange visions and outrageous sensibilities of the science fiction that was available in Hebrew. In Art and War, they engage in a dialogue that covers their approach to writing the fantastic, as they question how to write about Israel and Palestine, about Judaism, about the Holocaust, about childhoods and their end. Extending the conversation even into their fiction, the book contains two brand new short stories – Tutim by Tidhar, and Third Attribute by Adaf – in which each appears as a character in the other’s tale; simultaneously political and fantastical, they burn with an angry, despairing intensity. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Boy s Club
The perpetually insouciant glaze of his characters belies the sharp verbal and visual wit of Furie, who delivers a stoner classic for the Tumblr generation. In fact, Furie's wildly popular teenage weirdos became an overnight internet sensation when Pepe the Frog was widely adopted by users of 4chan and remixed ad infinitum from there (including uses by pop stars like Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry), giving Boy's Club built-in recognition with many.
A renowned poet’s artful collection is a striking body of work
Shades is a book of shadow and light cast between trees and sun, between day and room, between life and death. It acknowledges endings as beginnings; it offers compassion and tenderness, searching for hope in the richness of nature; it seeks the same resources within the human being. Heather McHugh’s companion volume to To the Quick (Wesleyan 1987) continues the music and brilliance characteristic of her work but moves more deeply into the metaphysical. She writes in paradox, with serious wit and intensity, the crafted language of “stitches in hand and birds in time”; “We part/ before we part; indeed,/ we part before we meet…” She studies “going matched with coming.” She begins with a series of elegies that bring sexuality and death into brutal juxtaposition. Living and dying are the occasions of these poems, the soul the ultimate concern. This poetry takes to heart the fundamental strangeness of being.
