DIAGRAM OF THE HEART : Glenna Gordon

by sbrothier
There’s a small but vibrant cottage industry of Muslim women writing romance novels, littattafan soyayya, in Northern Nigeria, a region best known for the acts of terrorist group Boko Haram. The writers face off with Islamic censors, and they sell their books in some of the same markets targeted by Boko Haram suicide bombers.  The books are about love and marriage. Some are subversive and speak out against human trafficking and child marriage, while others are submissive, advising women on how best to please their husbands, offering fantasies of escape, and tales of the poor girl marrying the rich man.   Guided by the themes of these novels, “Diagram of the Heart” explores romance, tradition, love and loss in the lives of women in Northern Nigeria.    "Diagram of the Heart" will be released as a photo book on February 11, 2016, published by Red Hook Editions. You can pre-order a copy now and read more about it here.

The Believer Logger - An Experiment in Anxiety — An Experiment in Anxiety

by sbrothier (via)
Most authors give interviews when they’ve been done with their books for more than a year. After the long processes of copyediting, cover-approval, and book-tour scheduling, the actual composition of the book is a distant memory. The following conversation with the novelist Joshua Cohen was conducted last Tuesday, when he was about 40 percent finished with his new book, PCKWCK (his tenth)—and, for a few hours every day this week, the newest novel in existence.

Horace Mann Quotes A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them. Horace Mann

Library of Babel

by sbrothier
The Library of Babel is a place for scholars to do research, for artists and writers to seek inspiration, for anyone with curiosity or a sense of humor to reflect on the weirdness of existence - in short, it’s just like any other library. If completed, it would contain every possible combination of 1,312,000 characters, including lower case letters, space, comma, and period. Thus, it would contain every book that ever has been written, and every book that ever could be - including every play, every song, every scientific paper, every legal decision, every constitution, every piece of scripture, and so on. At present it contains 1,024,640 volumes.

Le tool-book » NellyRodiLab

by sbrothier
Quand certains parient sur la fin des livres, d’autres préfèrent leur donner une nouvelle fonction ; alors, les pages ne deviennent plus le support des mots mais se transforment en objet utilitaire. Water is Life lui a même donné une fonction de premier ordre : avec ses pages qui ont la capacité de filtrer l’eau non potable, son ‘Drinkable Manuel’ peut rendre l’eau consommable pour quelques euros.

Screening Sex - Capricci.fr

by sbrothier
À partir des années 1960, le cinéma américain commence à sortir de sa longue adolescence : Elizabeth Taylor prononce des mots jusqu’alors interdits, Dustin Hoffman perd sa virginité dans les bras de Mrs. Robinson, Jon Voight fait le gigolo dans les rues de New York. À Hollywood, la sexualité fait enfin son apparition comme sujet et comme question de mise en scène. Comment représenter les rapports charnels ? Comment les intégrer à la narration et à la vie émotionnelle des personnages ? Quelle expérience le spectateur fait-il de telles scènes ?

Et ce qui fut au départ un gag de presse est vite devenu une réflexion plastique.

Dave Eggers made me quit Twitter - Salon.com

by sbrothier
Now that I’m back on social media, I’m realizing that the answer isn’t necessarily to deprive yourself. It’s better to find a balance and not think of your life as existing in 140 characters or status updates.

A World Without Privacy - NYTimes.com

by sbrothier
In his great and prophetic novel “1984,” George Orwell laid out his vision of what totalitarianism would look like if taken to its logical extreme. The government — in the form of Big Brother — sees all and knows all. The Party rewrites the past and controls the present. Heretics pop up on television screens so they can be denounced by the populace.
