So Many Olympic Exertions

So Many Olympic Exertions

Hey LA people! If you don’t already have plans tomorrow afternoon, consider swinging by Artbook’s Hauser & Wirth’s LA location for the book launch of So Many Olympic Exertions. “Blending elements of memoir and sports writing, Anelise Chen’s debut novel is an experimental work that perhaps most resembles what the ancient Greeks called hyponemata, or “notes to the self,” in the form of observations, reminders and self-exhortations”.

The event is from 4-6pm and will feature a reading by Anelise Chen as well as a reading by Jarett Kobek from his new novel The Future Won’t Be Long (Viking). Signing follows the reading.

Summer Days Staten Island

Summer Days Staten Island

The end of summer is rapidly approaching and we are none too pleased about it. If you’re in the mood to memorialize your summer in the form of a coffee table book…look no further. Woman Cutting Grass is reproduced from Summer Days Staten Island, a collection of Christine Osinski’s photographs of early-80s Staten Island. “Staten Island was a perfect place for me at the time. There was no one looking over my shoulder, nobody to impress, no galleries, no art museums, no hipsters, no deadlines. I was free to roam around with no particular place to go. I have always understood secondary sites, overlooked people and vernacular architecture, so Staten Island was a gold mine for me.” Read more in The New York Times.
