Confessions of the Fox Book Description:

A New York Times Editors’ Choice: “A mind-bending romp through a gender-fluid, eighteenth century London . . . a joyous mash-up of literary genres shot through with queer theory and awash in sex, crime, and revolution.” NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New Yorker • HuffPost • Kirkus Reviews • Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award • Shortlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize • “A dazzling tale of queer romance and resistance.”—Time Jack Sheppard and Edgeworth Bess were the most notorious thieves, jailbreakers, and lovers of eighteenth-century London. Yet no one knows the true story; their confessions have never been found. Until now. Reeling from heartbreak, a scholar named Dr. Voth discovers a long-lost manuscript—a gender-defying exposé of Jack and Bess’s adventures. Is Confessions of the Fox an authentic autobiography or a hoax? As Dr. Voth is drawn deeper into Jack and Bess’s tale of underworld resistance and gender transformation, it becomes clear that their fates are intertwined—and only a miracle will save them all. Writing with the narrative mastery of Sarah Waters and the playful imagination of Nabokov, Jordy Rosenberg is an audacious storyteller of extraordinary talent. Praise for Confessions of the Fox “A cunning metafiction of vulpine versatility . . . an action-adventure tale with postmodern flourishes; an academic comedy spliced with period erotica; an intimate meditation on belonging.”—Katy Waldman, The New Yorker “Confessions of the Fox is so goddamned good. Reading it was like an out-of-body experience. I want to run through the streets screaming about it. It should be in the personal canon of every queer and non-cis person. Read it.”—Carmen Maria Machado, National Book Award finalist for Her Body and Other Parties “A hat tip to Moby-Dick . . . a running footnote hall of mirrors to rival Borges . . . one of the most trenchant calls for progressive action that I have read in a very long time.”—The New York Times Book Review “An ambitious work of metafiction, a sexy queer love story . . . a bold first novel.”—Entertainment Weekly

Augustine Book Description:

WINNER OF THE WOLFSON PRIZE FOR HISTORY 2015 A major new interpretation of how one of the great figures of Christian history came to write the greatest of all autobiographies Augustine is the person from the ancient world about whom we know most. He is the author of an intimate masterpiece, the Confessions, which continues to delight its many admirers. In it he writes about his infancy and his schooling in the classics in late Roman North Africa, his remarkable mother, his sexual sins ('Give me chastity, but not yet,' he famously prayed), his time in an outlawed heretical sect, his worldly career and friendships and his gradual return to God. His account of his own eventual conversion is a classic study of anguish, hesitation and what he believes to be God's intervention. It has inspired philosophers, Christian thinkers and monastic followers, but it still leaves readers wondering why exactly Augustine chose to compose a work like none before it. Robin Lane Fox follows Augustine on a brilliantly described journey, combining the latest scholarship with recently found letters and sermons by Augustine himself to give a portrait of his subject which is subtly different from older biographies. Augustine's heretical years as a Manichaean, his relation to non-Christian philosophy, his mystical aspirations and the nature of his conversion are among the aspects of his life which stand out in a sharper light. For the first time Lane Fox compares him with two contemporaries, an older pagan and a younger Christian, each of whom also wrote about themselves and who illumine Augustine's life and writings by their different choices. More than a decade passed between Augustine's conversion and his beginning the Confessions. Lane Fox argues that the Confessions and their thinking were the results of a long gestation over these years, not a sudden change of perspective, but that they were then written as a single swift composition and that its final books are a coherent consummation of its scriptural meditation and personal biography. This exceptional study reminds us why we are so excited and so moved by Augustine's story.

Confessions Revised and Updated Book Description:

"In Confessions, Matthew Fox recounts his personal, intellectual, and spiritual journey from altar boy to Dominican priest to theologian, and the story of how he eventually found it necessary to stand up to the Vatican. It also tells the story of our times and the Catholic church's efforts at renewal at the Vatican Council, the abortion of that movement by two subsequent papacies (John Paul II and Benedict XVI), and the price many have paid for that betrayal. Fox was but one of 105 theologians silenced, condemned, and deprived of their livelihood by a papacy that "destroyed theology" and theological discourse, but was the most visible one in North America. After breaking with the Roman Catholic Church, Fox was confirmed as an Episcopal priest, and began working to reclaim spirituality from the bonds of organized religion while reinventing meaningful ritual through his "Cosmic Mass," geared particularly to the younger generation. Confessions describes the alternative programs and theological perspectives Fox brought forth in his thirty-two books and alternative pedagogy for reinventing education. Confessions is a remarkable story of activism for our times. Three new chapters in th

Beasts who Walk Alone Book Description:

This essay explores paradoxes surrounding queer abjection by examining two novels which dwell on both the pleasures and pains of alterity. Both Djuna Barnes's 1936 Nightwood and Jordy Rosenberg's 2018 Confessions of the Fox posit an intensely ambivalent notion of queerness, one which embraces transgressive possibilities and desires at the same time as it registers horrifying social and semiotic heteronormative violence. In particular, these novels feature queer figures who navigate abjection through metaphorical identifications with animals which are sometimes erotic, other times troubling, and very often both at once. Barnes and Rosenberg also interrogate the role of traditional narrative forms in reifying queer abjection by employing self-reflexive narrative disruptions. For their queer figures as for Barnes and Rosenberg themselves, narrating from a position of abjection necessarily encompasses negative and positive affects, a combination which complicates theoretical debates in the fields of queer studies, modernism, and postcolonial studies alike.

Confessions of a Former Fox News Christian Book Description:

Seth Andrews idolized Rush Limbaugh. He listened to Glenn Beck. He read Ann Coulter. He watched Fox News. He was an evangelical Christian once tethered to right-wing media, which constantly warned of an attack on American values by liberals and secular humanists. Today, Seth is a liberal and secular humanist. This book explores the Fox News culture, which both reflects and informs American conservatism, shaping public opinion on important issues like religion, government, race, foreign policy, war, protest, LGBT rights, and the Constitution. It's an exposé of conservative media's "closed systems" which constantly feed on (and feed into) public outrage, ignorance, bigotry, and fear. It's also the story of one man's personal journey into a larger and better world.
