            Stories of seduction often entertain and perturb in equal measure. From Pamela, the 1740 novel about a young woman who goes to work for a rapacious man, to Fifty Shades of Grey, the 2011 internationally bestselling erotica, we have always been hungry for narratives about seductio...n and resistance, temptation and sex.

            Literary Nonfiction. Stephen van Dyck's PEOPLE I'VE MET FROM THE INTERNET is a queer reimagining of the coming-of-age narrative set at the dawn of the internet era. In 1997, AOL is first entering suburban homes just as thirteen-year-old Stephen is coming into his sexuality, const...ructing selves and cruising in the fantasyscape of the internet. Through strange, intimate, and sometimes perilous physical encounters with the hundreds of men he finds there, Stephen explores the pleasures and pains of growing up, contends with his mother's homophobia and early death, and ultimately searches for a way of being in the world. Spanning twelve years, the book takes the form of a very long annotated list, tracking Stephen's journey and the men he meets from adolescence in New Mexico to post-recession adulthood in Los Angeles, creating a multi-dimensional panorama of gay men's lives as he searches for glimpses of utopia in the available world.

            Vincent's Books: Van Gogh and the Writers Who Inspired Him

            Vincent's Books: Van Gogh and the Writers Who Inspired Him (Hardback, Annotated edition)

            Books and reality and art are the same kind of thing for me. One of the most famous artists in history, Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was also a man with another powerful passion--for books. An insatiable reader, Van Gogh spent his life hungrily consuming as many books as he could.... He read, re-read, and copied out books in Dutch, English, and French. He knew many passages by heart from works by Dickens, Zola, Shakespeare, and Maupassant, among many others. As he wrote to his brother, Theo, in one of their hundreds of letters: I have a more or less irresistible passion for books. In Vincent's Books, Mariella Guzzoni explores Van Gogh's life as a voracious bookworm, noting what he read, what he wrote about, and how his love of reading influenced his artwork. She walks us through his life, chapter by chapter: from his early adulthood, when he considered becoming a pastor, to his decision to be a painter, to the tragically short end of his life. He moved from Holland to Paris to Provence; at each moment, ideas he encountered in books defined and guided his thoughts and his worldview. Van Gogh wrote with eloquence and insight about what he was reading in his letters to Theo, referring to at least two hundred authors. Books and readers are frequent subjects of his paintings, and Guzzoni highlights over one hundred of these works, such as Still life with Bible in the Van Gogh Museum and his vivid paintings of L'Arlesienne with a stack of books under her arm. A gorgeously illustrated biography that will appeal to any booklover, Vincent's Books takes us on a fresh, fascinating journey through the pages of a beloved artist's life.

            Thomas Wyatt didn't publish They Flee from Me. It was written in a notebook, maybe abroad, maybe even in prison. Today it is in every poetry anthology. How did it survive? In vivid and compelling detail, Murphy tells the story of the accidents of fate that kept a great poem alive... across 500 turbulent years.
