Celebrated transsexual trailblazer Kate Bornstein has, with more humor and spunk than any other, ushered us into a world of limitless possibility through a daring re-envisionment of the gender system as we know it. Here, Bornstein bravely and wittily shares personal and unorthodox methods of survival in an often cruel world. A one-of-a-kind guide to staying alive outside the box, Hello, Cruel World is a much-needed unconventional approach to life for those who want to stay on the edge, but alive. Hello, Cruel World features a catalog of 101 alternatives to suicide that range from the playful (moisturize!), to the irreverent (shatter some family values), to the highly controversial. Designed to encourage readers to give themselves permission to unleash their hearts' harmless desires, the book has only one directive: "Don't be mean." It is this guiding principle that brings its reader on a self-validating journey, which forges wholly new paths toward a resounding decision to choose life. Tenderly intimate and unapologetically edgy, Kate Bornstein is the radical role model, the affectionate best friend, and the guiding mentor all in one.

This thesis delves into the most volatile years of the notoriously volatile life of French poet and theatrical theorist Antonin Artaud (1896–1948). At the heart of the research is an examination of his voyages to Mexico and Ireland, as these seem to be relatively neglected in relation to understanding his body of work. The research encompasses biographies of Artaud, his own account of his Mexican excursion, as well as his essays, letters, plays, and poems in English translation. In addition, books and articles with varied interpretations of his work, and excerpts of the Irish Department of External Affairs file, “Enquiry from Antonin Artaud re: ‘Sources d’Antiques Traditions’ in Ireland’” as published in the Dublin Review . The research shows a remarkable consistency in his artistic voice. It was also discovered that after returning from Mexico, he made peace with several figures he renounced early in his career. The significance of his correspondence with publisher Jacques Rivière is further noted.

HELL IS TOO GOOD A PLACE FOR A SADIST. . . . Twenty years after ex-CIA special ops agent Ian Wallace watched a KGB colonel brutally murder the love of his life and their unborn child, he’s still wishing the monster Vladimir Ivanchenko had killed him off, too. Endlessly haunted by nightmarish memories of torture, Wallace, the fanatically conservative private investigator, can’t seem to escape the bowels of Moscow’s Lubyanka prison, even while reaping the comforts of life in suburban Boston. But when the devil himself comes to Beantown on another twisted mission, who better to hunt down Ivanchenko—the Russian mafia don now deemed the most dangerous man in the world—than the fueled-by-guilt and hungry-for-revenge Wallace? All he must do to earn the forty grand the CIA offers him for the task is dedicate the next two weeks of his life to guarding Ivanchenko’s target—an obnoxious, greedy, and big government–loving MIT professor, whose research on Ballistic Missile Defense is a matter of national security. That, and partner up with the irresistibly sexy and tough-as-nails Kathy Donahue. Straight from the bleak deserts of war-torn Afghanistan, she just might be the secret to opening up Wallace’s sealed and scarred heart. Tension between the highly experienced agents builds, but Wallace’s bloodthirsty desire for Ivanchenko’s demise reveals his own evil nature, scaring Donahue away. And, as friends and enemies sacrifice their lives to harbor and reveal secrets, Wallace doesn’t know to what maniacal extreme he will go to bury his own.
