172 GUTKIND, LEE (EDITOR). Hurricanes And Carnivals: Essays By Chicanos, Pochos, Pachucos, Mexicanos, And Expatriates.
University of Arizona Press, Tucson: 2007. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
"In Mexico," writes Ilan Stavans in the introduction to this provocative new collection on Mexican culture and politics, " [the essay] is embraced as passionately as a sport." While the American essay may be personal and confessional or erudite and academic, it is presumed to be truthful. By contrast, the Mexican essay pushes the boundaries between fact and fiction as writers seek to make their opinions heard—in literary journals, in newspapers, and even on cereal boxes. "What is real and what isn't in a Mexican essay, only God knows," concludes Stavans. In Hurricanes and Carnivals, Lee Gutkind, a pioneer in the teaching of creative nonfiction, brings together fifteen essays by Mexican, Mexican American, and Latin American writers that push the boundaries of style and form, showing that navigating "truth" is anything but clear-cut. Although creative nonfiction is widely thought to be an American art form, this collection proves otherwise. By blending fact and fiction, story and fantasy, history and mythology, these writers and others push the bounds of the essay to present a vision of Mexico rarely seen from this side of the border. Addressing topics that include immigration, politics, ecology, violence, family, and sexuality, they take literary license on a whirlwind adventure. C. M. Mayo shows us Mexico City as seen through the eyes of her pug, Picadou; Juan Villoro examines modern Mexico through the lens of demography; Homero Aridjis uses the plight of nesting sea turtles to document a slowly changing Mexican attitude toward natural resources; and Sam Quinones documents the decline of beauty-queen addiction in Mazatlan and tells us about the flower festivals where, according to lore, only two things matter: hurricanes and carnivals. For readers interested in a literary view of contemporary Mexico, as well as students of the creative nonfiction genre, this volume is essential. "This group of essays mark some of the most fascinating, even biting, pieces in recent times. They don't hold back any punches; on the contrary, they pinch, sting, and unveil facades." —Francisco A. Lomeli

173 GUTKIND, LEE. Forever Fat: Essays By The Godfather
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2010. First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Dubbed—some would say drubbed—the "godfather behind creative nonfiction" by Vanity Fair, Lee Gutkind takes the opportunity of these essays, and the rich material of his own life, to define, defend, and further expand the genre he has done so much to shape. The result is an explosive and hilarious memoir of Gutkind's colorful life as a motorcyclist, a medical insider, a sailor, a college professor, an over-aged insecure father, and a literary whipping boy. In Forever Fat Gutkind battles his weight, his ex-wives, his father, his rabbi, his psychiatrist, and his critics in a lifelong cross-country, cross-cultural search for stability and identity. And from Gutkind's battles, the reader emerges a winner, treated to a sometimes poignant, sometimes harrowing, sometimes uproarious, and always engrossing story of the simultaneous awakening of a man and his mission, and of the constant struggle, in literature and in life, to sort out memory and imagination. Here, enacted in technicolor terms, is the universal, symbolic truth that no matter how far you travel, over how many years, you will never completely shed the weighty baggage of adolescence. Yet, as Gutkind proves again and again, he has learned to describe his burden with an ever-lightening brilliance.

North Point Press, San Francisco: 1987. 0865472998 / 9780865472990 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
For nearly fifty years the pages of The New Yorker have been regularly graced with Philip Hamburger's compelling and vivid profiles of the famous and infamous, from a 1946 portrait of Marshal Tito's Yugoslavia to a 1986 account of Vartan Gregorian, the charismatic and stimulating president of the New York Public Library. In Curious World: A New Yorker At Large Hamburger has called nineteen enduring essays from his long career as a chronicler of the American scene in the areas of politics and the arts. Here we find Oscar Hammerstein II, who had a genius for simplicity; Liberace ("strong fingers, this fellow"); Dean Acheson, a Secretary of State worthy of the title; poet Ntozake Shange, artists Max Ernst and Jean Dubuffet; Harry S. Truman, signing four thousand copies of his memoir in a Kansas City ballroom; and others.
