Of Latitudes Unknown: James Baldwin’s Radical Imagination by Alice Mikal Craven, William E. Dow, Yoko Nakamura
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.8 Mb
Overview: Of Latitudes Unknown is a multi-faceted study of James Baldwin’s radical imagination. It is a selective and thoughtful survey that re-investigates the grounds of Baldwin studies and provides new critical approaches, subjects, and orientations for Baldwin criticism.
This volume joins recent critical collections in “un-fragmenting” Baldwin and establishing further conjunctions in his work: the essay and the novel; the polemical and the aesthetic; his use of and participation in visual forms; and his American as well as international identities. But it goes beyond other recent studies by focusing on new entities of Baldwin’s radical imagination: his English and French language selves; his late encounters with Africa; his appearances on French television and interviews with French journalists; and his unrecognized literary journalism. Of Latitudes Unknown also addresses Baldwin’s relations with the Arab world, his anticipation of contemporary film and media studies, and his paradoxical public intellectualism.
As it reassesses Baldwin’s contributions to and influences on world literary history, Of Latitudes Unknown equally explores why the critical appreciation of Baldwin’s writing continues to flourish, and why it remains a vast territory whose parts lie open to much deeper exploration and elaboration.

Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 2.16 MB
Overview: In this delightful and delicious book, Calvin Trillin, guided by an insatiable appetite, embarks on a hilarious odyssey in search of “something decent to eat.”
Across time zones and cultures, and often with his wife, Alice, at his side, Trillin shares his triumphs in the art of culinary discovery, including Dungeness crabs in California, barbecued mutton in Kentucky, potato latkes in London, blaff d’oursins in Martinique, and a $33 picnic on a no-frills flight to Miami. His eating companions include Fats Goldberg, the New York pizza baron and reformed blimp; William Edgett Smith, the man with the Naughahyde palate; and his six-year-old daughter, Sarah, who refuses to enter a Chinese restaurant unless she is carrying a bagel (“just in case”).
And though Alice “has a weird predilection for limiting our family to three meals a day,” on the road she proves to be a serious eater-despite “seemingly uncontrollable attacks of moderation.”
