BLACK FRIDAY DEALS

WE HAVE LOST OUR MINDS.

WE ARE SLASHING PRICES.

TAKE 20% OFF ANY ITEM IN THE N+1 STORE WHEN YOU ENTER THE CODE BLACKFRIDAY.

AS FAR AS WE KNOW THE CODE IS NOT CASE-SENSITIVE. But you should enter it in all-caps to keep in the spirit of things.

Our offerings this season include:

Marco Roth’s The Scientists. If this isn’t the best book of 2012, we don’t know what is. “Roth’s story is not outwardly very exciting,” Adam Kirsch wrote of this book in a very wise review, “he has been a graduate student, a critic and teacher, and a cofounder of n+1—and he makes no pretense of having mastered his life enough to write about it objectively. Instead, Roth claims another, inarguable right to memoir: the right that comes from having suffered, from spending half his life struggling in the coils of a ‘family romance’ he can neither resolve nor escape. ‘If I have a more than ordinary need to relive the past on the page,’ he acknowledges, ‘it may be because I have a more than ordinary fear of reliving that past elsewhere.’” 

The Trouble Is the Banks: Letters from Wall Street. Edited by Mark Greif, Dayna Tortorici, Kathleen French, Emma Janaskie, and Nick Werle. Angry, funny, very sad letters from ordinary Americans to the banks, and the bank executives, that screwed them. Culled from the Occupy Wall Street-inspired website, Occupy the Boardroom. With an invaluable appendix enumerating all the fraud cases the banks have already settled.

Draw It With Your Eyes Closed. Paper Monument’s instant classic on the art of the art assignment, with contributions from over a hundred artists.

Kirill Medvedev’s It’s No Good. The first-ever English-language book from our favorite Russian poet and socialist activist. Edited and translated by Keith Gessen with Mark Krotov, Cory Merrill, and Bela Shayevich; co-published with Ugly Duckling. We’ll have copies in mid-December, but it’s now available for pre-order.

Plus our totes, tea pots, beach towels, and hoodies. Just kidding. But we do have tote bags, for putting your books into. All of it is here.

Happy Thanksgiving.

    • Last Night at Zuccotti Park

      I saw a chant give you pause last night. “This—is—a peaceful—pro-test” was one; you all stopped shoving us and stood there like blue clad mannequins. Why did that paralyze you? More…
