United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries and dramatically

cutting the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the United States each year.

The American people spoke up, with protests, marches, donations, and lawsuits that quickly overturned the order. But the refugee caps remained. In The Displaced, Pulitzer Prize–winning writer Viet Thanh Nguyen, himself a refugee, brings together a host of prominent refugee writers to explore and illuminate the refugee experience. Featuring original essays by Ishmael Beah, Maaza Mengiste, Aleksander Hemon, Ariel Dorfman, Kao Kalia Yang, Chris Abani, Porochista Khakpour, and many others, The Displaced is an indictment of closing our doors, and a powerful look at what it means to be forced to leave home and find a place of refuge. Viet Thanh Nguyen was born in Vietnam in 1971. After the fall of Saigon in 1975, he and his family fled to the United States. The author of three books, Nguyen is the Aerol Arnold Chair of English and Professor of English and American Studies and Ethnicity at University of Southern California. He lives in Los Angeles.

n Queer City, the acclaimed Peter Ackroyd looks at London in a whole new way–through the complete history and experiences of its gay and lesbian population. In Roman

Londinium, the city was dotted with lupanaria (“wolf dens” or public pleasure houses), fornices (brothels), and thermiae (hot baths). Then came the Emperor Constantine, with his bishops, monks, and missionaries. And so began an endless loop of alternating permissiveness and censure. Ackroyd takes us right into the hidden history of the city; from the

notorious Normans to the frenzy of executions for sodomy in the early nineteenth century. He journeys through the coffee bars of sixties Soho to Gay Liberation, disco music, and the horror of AIDS.

n an alternate reality a lot like our world, every person’s physical size is directly proportional to their wealth. The poorest of the poor are the size of rats, and bil-

lionaires are the size of skyscrapers. Warner and his sister Prayer are destitute—and tiny. Their size is not just demean-

ing, but dangerous: day and night they face mortal dangers that bigger richer people don’t ever have to think about, from being mauled by cats to their house getting stepped on. There are no cars or phones built small enough for them, or schools or hospitals, for that matter—there’s no point, when no one that little has any purchasing power, and when salaried doctors and teachers would never fit in buildings so small. Warner and Prayer know their only hope is to scale up, but how can two littlepoors survive in a world built against them? A brilliant, warm, funny trip, unlike anything else out there, and a social novel for our time in the tradition of 1984 or Invisible Man. Inequality is made intensely visceral by an adventure and tragedy both hilarious and heartbreaking. Jesse Andrews is the New York Times– bestselling author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and the screenwriter of that book’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize–winning movie adaptation. He’s also the author of The Haters, which Booklist called “effortlessly readable, deeply enjoyable,” in a starred review. He lives in Brooklyn.

An excerpt from Munmun Being littlepoor is notsogood. I know I know, you think you know this already, howabout I just tell you though. I want to see if this makes you laugh. A middlerich kid stepped on our house and crushed my dad to death. Then that same year a cat attacked my mom at the dump and snapped her spine. There. That’s it. Did you blurt a little giggly laugh? No you didn’t, okay good, ofcourse thanks for not laughing. To me, it’s not very funny. But to some people, super funny. Mostly I mean the people too big to worry about getting stomped, squashed, catcrippled, sewerdrowned, mudburied, any of your classic littlepoor terrors. We were as littlepoor as you can get, a tenth of middlescale, about as big as rats. We preferred to say squirrels, because a squirrel is a little bigger and ofcourse less disgusting. But squirrels are about eighthscale and we were tenthscale, littler than squirrels, more exactly the size of average rats. We lived in the beachy capital of Lossy Indica, down in an alleyway near the docks. Our house was a onestory block of twinedtogether milkcrates, roofs and walls of smasheddown tincans, everynight the stovesmoke tickled our lungs and flavored our skin . . .

large-scale environments and installations, the artists’ work fuses the everyday

with the conceptual. Deeply rooted in the visual culture of Soviet society yet speaking equally to universal themes, their work is characterized by a sense of melancholia but also by humor. Celebrating five decades of work, this book traces a line from Ilya Kabakov’s early paintings, drawings, albums, and installations to the collaborative projects made with Emilia following his emigration to the West in 1987. Exploring themes of failed utopia and political disillusionment, as well as fantasies of escape and transcendence, the book also examines the relationship between aesthetics and politics, and the way painting has remained a central feature of their work. Texts by leading art writers and historians contextualize the artists’ practice, amplified by the artists’ own writings. Fully illustrated, this

n 1969, humankind set foot on the moon. Neil Armstrong, Edwin ”Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins carried the fire for

all the world. Backed by the brightest minds in engineering and science, the three boarded a rocket and flew through the

void—just to know that we could. In Apollo, Matt Fitch, Chris Baker, and Mike Collins unpack the urban legends, the gossip, and the speculation to reveal a remarkable true story about life, death, dreams, and the reality of humanity's greatest exploratory achievement. Mike Collins is a comic-book artist based in Wales. He has worked for Marvel on comics including Spider-Man and Transformers; for DC Comics on flagship titles such as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman; and for the UK’s celebrated weekly comic 2000AD on Judge Dredd, Sláine, and Rogue Trooper, among others. Matt Fitch and Chris Baker are the cofounders of Dead Canary Comics, a small press dedicated to comics and graphic novels. Together, they are the authors of Reddin (with Conor Boyle) and The Fitzroy, a collection of stories featuring artwork by Krent Able, Charlie Hodgson, Will Robson, Scott Cooper, and Will Kirkby.

“He leads the field by a very long furlong, out on his own, making his own weather. He is Klimowski, unafraid.” —Harold Pinter, Nobel Prize-winning playwright

I

n the mid-1970s, Andrzej Klimowski's fearlessly original artwork caught the eye of leading Polish theater and film companies,

for whom he designed some of the period's most iconic posters.

The London-born artist, who moved to Poland at a time when many East Europeans dreamed of going West, went on to create posters for works by filmmakers and playwrights from Scorsese to Altman, Beckett to Brecht.

ALSO AVAIL AB LE

Drawing on folk art and Polish Surrealism, Klimowski uses techniques including photomontage and linocut to create posters that are filled with metaphor, drama, and originality. Andrzej Klimowski (b. 1949) studied at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London and at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. He is

of capitalism and a radical call to arms. It remains the most incisive introduction to the ideas of Communism and the

most lucid explanation of its aims. Much of what it proposed continues to be at the heart of political debate into the 21st century. It is no surprise, perhaps, that The Communist Manifesto (as it was later renamed) is the second bestselling book of all time, surpassed only by the Bible. The Guardian’s editorial cartoonist Martin Rowson employs his trademark draftsmanship and wit to this lively graphic novel adaptation. Published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth, The Communist Manifesto is both a timely reminder of the politics of hope and a thought-provoking guide to the most influential work of political theory ever published. Martin Rowson is a political cartoonist and author. Best known for his work in The Guardian, he has adapted Tristram Shandy and The Wasteland into graphic novel form.

fter suffering violence and betrayal at home, a young boy flees into an uncompromising

landscape ravaged by drought. Without food or water,

exposed to the heat of the sun and the violence of his pursuers, the boy sets out across the Spanish plains. An encounter with an elderly goatherd offers hope of survival. The old man can help him stay ahead of the dangers that lie outside—but he can’t fix the internal drama that plays out in the boy’s mind. Nightmares are a constant reminder of a traumatic past and an unstable present. Based on the award-winning novel by Jesús Carrasco, Javi Rey’s Out in the Open is a cinematic graphic novel about escaping abuse and finding humanity in a world torn apart by the violence of men. Javi Rey is a Belgian comics artist based in Barcelona. His books include Adelante (with Frank Giroud) and Un maillot pour l'Algérie. Jesús Carrasco is a Spanish novelist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is the winner of numerous awards, including the European Union Prize for Literature 2016 and an English PEN award.

of some 60 masterly works, mostly large-format paintings, a few works on paper, and archival material. It explores how the two artists, who shared each other’s life for nearly a quarter century, developed highly distinct bodies of work and studio techniques while engaging in a rich dialogue around abstract art. Their work was deeply influenced by the tides of their love affair, which was as stormy as it was seminal. Whether drawing attention to the similarities and differences between works that address the same subject, or motifs and inspirations specific to each, this book paints a splendid portrait of two remarkable figures of the international Abstract movement. Michel Martin is exhibition curator at Musée National des Beaux-arts du Quebec. Kenneth Brummel is assistant curator of modern art at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

In 1967, when the collection was established, the photography market was in its infancy, allowing the acquisition of works by pioneers of the medium such as Charles Nègre, William Henry Fox Talbot, Gustave Le Gray, and Roger Fenton, among others. Today the collection boasts an impressive array of works by world-renowned photographers. Ann Thomas chronicles the formative years of the collection under its founding curator, James Borcoman.

She discusses the role of influential figures in the world of collecting and curating photographs, offering an insider’s view of how the key collections entered the museum over the years. John McElhone takes a more technical approach in discussing how the photographic process has evolved, and helps clarify issues related to image appearance and identification.
