Winner of the 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award, Autobiography Swimming Studies is a brilliantly original, meditative memoir that explores the worlds of competitive and recreational swimming. From her training for the Olympic trials as a teenager to enjoying pools and beaches around the world as an adult, Leanne Shapton offers a fascinating glimpse into the private, often solitary, realm of swimming. Her spare and elegant writing reveals an intimate narrative of suburban adolescence, spent underwater in a discipline that continues to inspire Shapton’s work as an artist and author. Her illustrations throughout the book offer an intuitive perspective on the landscapes and imagery of the sport. Shapton’s emphasis is on the smaller moments of athletic pursuit rather than its triumphs. For the accomplished athlete, aspiring amateur, or habitual practicer, this remarkable work of written and visual sketches propels the reader through a beautifully personal and universally appealing exercise in reflection.

Noriaki Osada, teacher and philosopher, wrote the Theory of International Physical Education and Sports Studies for the Achievement of Peace with "three bold intentions" in mind: to awaken the physical education and sports scholars of the world to their social, nationalistic and global responsibilities; to promote the study of physical education and sports as a study of peace independent from other academic fields; and to affirm the value of such study. As demonstrated in the special atmosphere of the ancient and ever popular Olympic Games, Osada believes that it is the "physical education and sports scholars of the world [who] will, through physical education and sports research, create national theories that will lead to peaceful societies and peaceful nations." Mr. Osada looks forward to the day when such sports terms as fair play and team spirit become the language of international relations. Now a resident of New York City, the author believes that with the establishment of physical education and sports studies for the achievement of peace, we in the United States will leave our mark in human history. About the Author: Noriaki Osada was born in Kyoto, Japan, on March 19, 1949. He has a bachelor's degree from Osaka Physical Education College and an M.A. from National Osaka Education College. He also studied philosophy at Kyoto University as an auditing student. Mr. Osada continues his work in international physical education and sports studies as the founder of Olympic Education for people around the world, is a lifetime member of ICHPERSD (International Council for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, Sports, & Dance), and is also a member of AAHPERD (American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance).

Ever since Ezra Pound's exhortation to 'make it new', experimentation has been a hallmark of contemporary literature. Ranging from the modernists, through the Beats to postmodernism and contemporary 'hyperfiction', this is a unique introduction to experimental fiction. Creative exercises throughout the book help students grapple with the many varieties of experimental fiction for themselves, deepening their understanding of these many forms and developing their own writing skills. In addition, the book examines the historical contexts and major themes of 20th-century experimental fiction and new directions for the novel offered by writers such as David Shields and Zadie Smith. Making often difficult works accessible for the first time reader and with extensive further reading guides, Experimental Fiction is an essential practical guidebook for students of creative writing and contemporary fiction. Writers covered include: James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, Marcel Proust, Ralph Ellison, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William Gibson, Italo Calvino, Jeanette Winterson, Don Delillo, Caitlin Fisher, Geoff Ryeman, Xiaolu Guo, Tom McCarthy, James Frey and David Mitchell.
