Books Acquired Recently

It’s a good thing that the holiday break is coming up because I continue to acquire books at a rapid pace! I am very excited to have lots of forthcoming reading time once finals week finishes this coming Friday.

Gopinath, Gayatri. Unruly Visions: The Aesthetic Practice of Queer Diaspora. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2018.

I’m on Duke University Press’s email list because they are the premier publishers of queer scholarship. I got a notice about this new book and ordered it from them immediately because it focuses on queer experience outside of North America, something that queer theory tends to ignore.

Green, Hank. An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. New York: Dutton, 2018.

I bought a signed copy of Green’s debut novel at Barnes & Noble last night because a student had recommended it to me due to its bisexual protagonist.

Orange, Tommy. There There. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2018.

I received this book as a holiday gift from a friend. I’ve seen it on display at bookstores and been intrigued by it, so I look forward to reading it.

Ahmed, Sara. The Promise of Happiness. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2010.

I love Ahmed’s 2017 book Living a Feminist Life but haven’t explored any of her earlier books. There is some intriguing discussion of The Promise of Happiness in a book I am currently reading, Mari Ruti’s The Ethics of Opting Out, so I decided to buy it and read it for myself.

Keltner, Levis. Into That Good Night. New York: Arcade Publishing, 2018.

Keltner gave a reading sponsored by Utica College earlier this week that was intriguing enough that I decided to buy his novel.
