Critical Thinking Modernism in the Streets Marshall Berman The Pleasures of Leisure Robert Dessaix Letters to a Young Writer Colum McCann HB $39.99 Marshall Berman was one of the great urbanists and Marxist cultural critics of the 20th and 21st centuries. This collection includes early essays from and on the radical '60s, on New York City, on literary figures from Kafka to Pamuk, and late essays on rock, hip hop, and gentrification. Concluding with his last essay, completed just before his death in 2013, this book is Berman's intellectual autobiography, tracing his career as a thinker. HB $29.99 In today’s busy world the importance of making time for leisure is more vital than ever. Yet so many of us lack a talent for it. Robert Dessaix shows, in this thoughtful and witty book, how taking leisure seriously gives us back our freedom—to enjoy life, to revel in it, in fact; to deepen our sense of who we are as human beings. The result is a lively and engaging conversation that reminds us that at leisure we are at our most intensely and pleasurably human.
