BOOK EXCERPT:

"America's nerviest journalist" (Newsweek) trains his satirical eye on Modern Art in this "masterpiece" (The Washington Post) Wolfe's style has never been more dazzling, his wit never more keen. He addresses the scope of Modern Art, from its founding days as Abstract Expressionism through its transformations to Pop, Op, Minimal, and Conceptual. The Painted Word is Tom Wolfe "at his most clever, amusing, and irreverent" (San Francisco Chronicle).

BOOK EXCERPT:

WORDCATCHER Phil Cousineau illuminates the history and mystery of weird and wonderful word storiesTo untangle the knot of interlocking meanings of these painted words, logophile and mythologist Phil Cousineau begins each fascinating word entry with his own brief definition. He then fills it in with a tint of etymology and a smattering of quotes that show how the word is used, ending with a list of companion words. The words themselves range from commonplace - like biscuit, a twice-baked cake for Roman soldiers - to loanwords including chaparral, from the Basque shepherds who came to the American West; words from myths, such as hector; metamorphosis words, like silly, which evolved holy to goofy in a mere thousand years; and words well worthy of revival, such as carrytale, a wandering storyteller. Whether old-fangled or brand new, all the words included in The Painted Word possess an ineffable quality that makes them luminous.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Abstract : This article exposes a tradition of literary experimentation in Haiti which goes back to the work of the largely overlooked poet Magloire-Saint-Aude. Long after his death in 1971, a new generation of Haitian writers has followed his lead and has split from the militant, realist writing inaugurated by indigénisme and exemplified by politically committed leftist writers such as Jacques Roumain. Édouard Glissant's theorizing of a materialist poetics derived from painting is used to explain the nature of the influence Saint-Aude exerted on later writers. Painting's ability to evoke the opacity of things and to materialize the mysterious new possibilities opened up an experimental literature which was neither referential nor representative. In Haitian popular art novelists have found such a model for translating a modern Haitian imaginary.

BOOK EXCERPT:

After critiquing—and infuriating—the art world with The Painted Word, award-winning author Tom Wolfe shared his less than favorable thoughts about modern architecture in From Bauhaus to Our Haus. In this examination of the strange saga of twentieth century architecture, Wolfe takes such European architects as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, and Bauhaus art school founder Walter Gropius to task for their glass and steel box designed buildings that have influenced—and infected—America’s cities.

Art historian Eleanor Pearson DeLorme and her erudite coauthor, Charles Pearson DeLorme, lead us through a virtual gallery of great paintings by masters of Western art: from Rubens and Brueghels Garden of Eden to Signorellis Testament and Death of Moses. They tell two stories: that of the great story of Gods redemption and that of the lives and times of the masters who labored to portray Gods story, which is, at the same time, our own.
