The Metaphysics of Cutting Grass and Other Essays is a collection that displays a love of language, and a love of life in all its humorous, earnest, elusive, baffling, luminous, and revelatory variety. Jerry DeNuccio is a retired English professor who taught for 28 years at Graceland University in Lamoni, Iowa. Toward the end of his career, he turned his attention away from academic writing and toward the personal essay as the result of a student's challenge. He never stopped.

UC Berkeley English professor Robert Hass - winner the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Awards - has written that "Alex Patterson is a very gifted young writer."¿The book is about how children, in a heavenly state, begin to know the earthly world. How much of an illusion are both. How our vital instincts create these illusions. How our subjectivity reigns upon our lives. The book is a remarkable piece of art.¿ -- Marian Apostol. Professor, Department of Theoretical Physics, Institute of Atomic Physics, Magurele-Bucharest. July, 2009. ¿This essay is not a term paper on prisons in America. Rather, it is a document of personal disclosure. Mr. Patterson has engaged passionately with his American tradition. This is to the degree of an exceptionality that is remarkably exposed in this work. He has wrestled so intensely with America that he has taken to exile in Europe. This is the second exceptionality remarked here. I write criticism of academic physics, and do it with some flair. But Alex addresses a bigger culture and hierarchy, writing with such passion, poetry and structure as to make the third exceptionality of this work. I think that this all amounts to a ponderance worthy of your time.¿ -- Michael J. Burns. October 30, 2009

Following The Broken Estate, The Irresponsible Self, and How Fiction Works—books that established James Wood as the leading critic of his generation—The Fun Stuff confirms Wood's preeminence, not only as a discerning judge but also as an appreciator of the contemporary novel. In twenty-three passionate, sparkling dispatches—that range over such crucial writers as Thomas Hardy, Leon Tolstoy, Edmund Wilson, and Mikhail Lermontov—Wood offers a panoramic look at the modern novel. He effortlessly connects his encyclopedic, passionate understanding of the literary canon with an equally in-depth analysis of the most important authors writing today, including Cormac McCarthy, Lydia Davis, Aleksandar Hemon, and Michel Houellebecq. Included in The Fun Stuff are the title essay on Keith Moon and the lost joys of drumming—which was a finalist for last year's National Magazine Awards—as well as Wood's essay on George Orwell, which Christopher Hitchens selected for the Best American Essays 2010. The Fun Stuff is indispensable reading for anyone who cares about contemporary literature.

Josiah Royce (1855–1916) has had a major influence on American intellectual life — both popular movements and cutting-edge thought — but his name often went unmentioned while his ideas marched forward. The leading American proponent of absolute idealism, Royce has come back into fashion in recent years. With several important new books appearing, the formation of a Josiah Royce Society, and the re-organization of the Royce papers at Harvard, the time is ripe for Time, Will, and Purpose. Randall Auxier delves into the primary texts written by Royce to retrieve the most poignant ideas, the ideas we need most in the present day, while he also offers a new framework for understanding the development of Royce’s philosophy. Auxier responds to everything that has been written about Royce, both early and recent.

The author begins by distinguishing six fundamental issues on the metaphysics of individuality. He then proceeds to examine the relation among these issues and to demonstrate that ignorance of the interrelationships has caused confusion in philosophy. In spite of the intricacy of the subject matter, the discussion is always clear, the arguments explicitly evaluated, and the solutions original. In addition, Gracia has assembled an array of historical and contemporary information, from Plato to Strawson, that is unavailable elsewhere.
