Attica Is All of Us: Cornel West on 40th Anniversary of Attica Prison Rebellion.
“So, 40 years later, we come back to commemorate this struggle against the historical backdrop of a people who have been so terrorized and traumatized and stigmatized that we have been taught to be scared, intimidated, always afraid, distrustful of one another, and disrespectful of one another,” West says. “But the Attica rebellion was a countermove in that direction.”

Hemingway’s Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost, 1934–1961
by Paul Hendrickson
Knopf, 531 pp., $30.00
“ “Hemingway’s Boat” is a book written with the virtuosity of a novelist, hagiographic in the right way, sympathetic, assiduous, and imaginative. It does not rival the biographies but rather stands brilliantly beside them—the sea, Key West, Cuba, all the places, the life he had and gloried in. His commanding personality comes to life again in these pages, his great charm and warmth as well as his egotism and aggression.”
