THE SCIENCE DELUSION: Asking the Big Questions in a Culture of Easy Answers 
by Curtis White
9781612192000
A call to arms against simplistic scientism, against enemies of complexity like the new atheists, and an argument for the lasting radical power of the Romantics. By the man whose work David Foster Wallace called “Cogent, acute, beautiful and true.” 
 
COLLEGE OF ONE: The Story of How F. Scott Fitzgerald Educated the Woman He Loved
by Sheilah Graham
9781612192833
A memoir by Fitzgerald’s lover after Zelda, newspaper columnist Sheilah Graham. Full of gossip and romance and a surprisingly interesting literary syllabus. 

 
THE DIFFICULTY OF BEING
by Jean Cocteau

An incredible memoir by the legendary filmmaker. I don’t know how this book was ever allowed to fall out of print but now we’ve resurrected it. Every page is thick with aphorism and insight.
