The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
One of the most skilfull critics at work today.
––Barry Schwabsky, THE NATION
Book of Water
You don’t so much read The Book of Water, you float in it. These haunting little fictions heighten some senses while softening others, to an effect that is curiously hallucinatory. Never have words felt so liquid, or stories so cool and refreshing.
NONFICTION / PHILOSOPHY
Treason of the Intellectuals
Benda’s book is the great twentieth-century defense of intellectual integrity. It has become extraordinarily timely again at a moment when social criticism often routes itself through the particular loyalties of racial, religious, and national identity.
PHILOSOPHY / POLITICS
Where Are We Now?
Agamben is right that our rulers will use every opportunity to consolidate their power, especially in times of crisis. That coronavirus is being exploited to strengthen mass-surveillance infrastructure is no secret.

A Vision for Europe 2020
DAVID ADLER & ROSEMARY BECHLER &
A book that gives hope and provides solutions to break the doom loop. A must-read for all citizens who do not want to abandon Europe to the neoliberals and the nationalists.
Throughout his whole development I have never ceased to admire the acuteness of his vision and his faultless insight into the art of the past.
