This is New Year, New Me and we’re going to be covering some topics revolving around people changing (not always for the better).

Yanara Friedland : Uncountry
“As a descendent of Chantal Akerman and Unica Zürn—among others—Yanara Friedland reimagines the origin myth. Friedland’s permeable pages allow the reader entryway into a ‘mirror [that] becomes an open door,’ a door through which we hear the echo of Ana Mendieta telling us ‘There is no original past to redeem: there is the void.’ Uncountry […]

Listen to the full audiobook free with a 30-day trial at http://hotaudiobook.com/free/141283 Title: Breast Author: Philip Roth Narrator: David Colacci Format: Unabridged Length: 1 hr 51 mins Language: English Release date: 2010-01-15 Publisher: Brilliance Audio Genres: Fiction & Literature, Literary Fiction, Classics Publisher's Summary: Like a latter-day Gregor Samsa, Professor David Kepesh wakes up one morning to find that he has been transformed. But where Kafka's protagonist turned into a giant beetle, the narrator of Philip Roth's richly conceived fantasy has become a 155-pound female breast. What follows is a deliriously funny yet touching exploration of the full implications of Kepesh's metamorphosis-a daring, heretical book that brings us face to face with the intrinsic strangeness of sex and subjectivity. The Breast is terrific . . . inventive and sane and very funny. The trick which is the heart of the book is brilliant . . . and rich with meaning.-John Gardner, The New York Times Book Review Hilarious, serious, visionary, logical, sexual-philosophical; the ending amazes-the joke takes three steps beyond savagery and satire and turns into a sublimeness of pity. One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture.-Cynthia Ozick Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Marina Warner and Eleanor Birne: Forms of Enchantment
Marina Warner’s new collection of essays, Forms of Enchantment (Thames and Hudson), collects her writing on art from 1988 to the present, including pieces on (among others) Louise Bourgeois, Joan Jonas and Paula Rego. She brings to artists and artworks the same anthropological and mythological approach which informs her previous books, including Stranger Magic, From Beast to Blonde and Monuments and Maidens, arguing that the social position filled by art and aesthetics is increasingly best understood in terms of magic. Warner was in conversation with Eleanor Birne, author and contributor to the London Review of Books. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was a nineteenth century English novelist, short story writer, biographer, essayist, and travel writer who is probably most famously known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus. The first half of her life closely resembles a soap opera drama that began when she ran away with the then married Percy Shelley, and until his death, Mary found herself sucked into an almost gypsy-like existence, bouncing from place to place and abiding by a type of bohemian lifestyle which broke most social norms of that day and age. This poor woman endured one hell of a lot of bullshit, from her leech of a father to her cheating husband, and what is worse is that in spite of the fact that she was pregnant four or five times (that we know of), all of her children save one died before they reached one-year-old. But don’t let that fool you – Mary took after her own mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, when it came to perseverance, and though she is more remembered...

Episode 050: Two Novels by Georges Bataille
Episode the fiftieth; Wherein the Pageist ponders the meaning of work, tells her mother of her job and falls in love with a French author. The books reviewed in this episode are Story of the Eye and L’Abbe C by Georges Bataille. .53 Intro and Announcements: Info on the first episode of the Fetish Files with Auntie Social.

Book one is Story of the Eye. Bataille’s first novel, this is about a menage that goes very wrong, leading to the characters going on the run across Europe. Sadism, torture, orgies, sacreligious acts and urine play galore. Quite visceral and explicit, and not for the faint of heart, this is an incredible work of transgressive fiction. L’Abbe C. A story of two people obsessed with one another–Eponine, a prostitute, and Robert, a priest who’s known her since childhood–and the person caught between them–Charles, Robert’s identical twin. For people with a high capacity for ambiguity in fiction, who don’t need every question answered. 33.14 Closing Remarks: Thank you for tuning in! In the next episode I’ll be interviewing Auntie Social from Stereo-typed. We’ll be discussing whether or not people are too swept up in fantasy (both kinky and in general) and uninterested in the warts of reality. Support the show and site on Patreon!

Ark Audio Book Club #6 Story of the Eye by George Bataille
In the 6th episode of the ark audio book club we are talking about French philosopher Georges Bataille’s novel 'Story of the Eye’, which was originally published in 1928 but wasn’t translated into English, until 51 years later, in 1979. To quote from the paris review; "Story of the Eye, is a dirty book by an unhappy Frenchman. It chronicles the amatory hijinks of a nameless but extremely open-minded narrator, his girlfriend Simone, an English voyeur named Sir Edmund, and Marcelle, a suicidal, mentally ill sixteen-year old. A staggering amount of mirthless sex is had by all, much of it in front of Simone's middle-aged mother, who is not amused. Fornication is indulged in alongside of, on top of, and eventually with corpses; various oblong and/or spherical objects are inserted into sundry cavities; a priest is seduced, corrupted and finally murdered at the moment of orgasm, after which one his eyeballs is recycled in a manner I blush to recount. Then things proceed to get a bit ris...

#246 - Georges Bataille
Trigger warning: Stuff gets aggressively horny in this episode! Based off a listener suggestion, Connor and Dan dive into the twisted world of French intellectual figure Georges Bataille who dabbled in everything from economics to mysticism to eroticism because that's just the kind of eclectic dude he was! We're talking transgressive art here, so you know Wikifeet is going to be referenced multiple times. It's gross! Enjoy!
