READING: Op 22 februari 1942 pleegde de Oostenrijkse schrijver Stefan Zweig samen met zijn vrouw zelfmoord in Brazilië. Als emigrant op de vlucht voor het naziregime had hij daar kort voor zijn dood zijn herinneringen opgetekend aan een wereld die naar hij vreesde op het punt stond te verdwijnen. De in 1944 postuum verschenen autobiografie biedt een indrukwekkend beeld van het oude Europa waarmee Zweig zich als (geassimileerde) jood, geëngageerd schrijver en humanist sterk verbonden voelde. Op zijn veelvuldige reizen naar Europese metropolen kwam hij in contact met vele invloedrijke intellectuelen en kunstenaars van zijn tijd, zoals Romain Rolland, Maxim Gorki en Einstein. Ook schetst hij een weergaloos, intiem beeld van zijn geboortestad Wenen, dat rond de eeuwwisseling als het onaantastbare centrum van de moderne Europese cultuur gold, met bekende schrijvers als Arthur Schnitzler en Hugo von Hofmannsthal, musici als Gustav Mahler en Arnold Schönberg, en `de outsider Sigmund Freud. In dat supranationale Wenen werd Zweigs ijveren voor een verenigd Europa geboren.

READING: Stone himself serves as guide to this no-holds-barred retrospective—an extremely candid and comprehensive monograph of the renowned and controversial writer, director, and cinematic historian in interview form. Over the course of five years, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone (Midnight Express, Scarface, Platoon, JFK, Natural Born Killers, Snowden) and New York Times bestselling author Matt Zoller Seitz (The Wes Anderson Collection) discussed, debated, and deconstructed the arc of Stone's outspoken, controversial life and career with extraordinary candor. This book collects those conversations for the first time, including anecdotes about Stone's childhood, Vietnam, his struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder, and his continual struggle to reinvent himself as an artist. Critical commentary from Seitz on each of Stone's films is joined by original essays from filmmaker Ramin Bahrani; writer, editor, and educator Kiese Laymon; writer and actor Jim Beaver; and film critics Walter Chaw, Michael Guarnieri, Kim Morgan, and Alissa Wilkinson. At once a complex analysis of a master director’s vision and a painfully honest critical biography in widescreen technicolor, The Oliver Stone Experience is as daring, intense, and provocative as Stone’s films—it's an Oliver Stone movie about Oliver Stone, in the form of a book. Both this book and Stone’s highly anticipated film, Snowden, will be released in September 2016 to coincide with Stone’s seventieth birthday (September 15, 1946). Also available from Matt Zoller Seitz: Mad Men Carousel, The Wes Anderson Collection: Bad Dads, The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel, and The Wes Anderson Collection.

READING: Wes Anderson is considered one of the most important directors of the post-Baby Boom generation, making films such as Rushmore (1998) and The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) in a style so distinctive that his films are often recognizable from a single frame. Through the travelogue The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and the stop-motion animation of Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), his films examine issues of gender, race, and class through dysfunctional family dynamics, with particular focus on masculinity and male bonding. Anderson's auteur status is enriched by his fascination with Truffaut and the French New Wave, as well as his authorship of every one of his screenplays, drawing on influences as diverse as Mark Twain, J. D. Salinger, Roald Dahl, and Stefan Zweig. Works such as Moonrise Kingdom (2012) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) continue to fascinate with their postmodern, hyper-nostalgic attention to detail. This book explores the filmic and literary influences that have helped make Anderson a major voice in 21st century "indie" culture, and reveals why Wes Anderson is one of the most inventive filmmakers working in cinema today.

READING: American-born, UK-based identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay (born 1947), better known as the Quay Brothers, are internationally celebrated for their incredibly inventive, otherworldly films that deploy objects, puppets and people in gloomy fantasies and haunted visions, creating a fetishized erotics of "stuff" in which dead matter mocks human form. Over the course of their careers, they have worked across disciplines to develop an aesthetic that manages to inspire, confound and often disturb their viewers. The Quays are also well known for the diverse cultural influences referenced throughout their films and designs, from Polish modernist poster design to antiquarians such as Athanasius Kircher, authors such as Robert Walser, Franz Kafka and Bruno Schulz, and artists such as Adolf Wolfli. Published for an exhibition at the Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, this Quay sourcebook presents their animated films, set designs (or "Dormitoriums," as the brothers have named them) and works on paper against the vast constellation of their influences--from Wunderkammer artifacts and anatomical models to Eastern European posters, other animation films, drawings from the famous Prinzhorn Collection, scores by Karlheinz Stockhausen and other inspirational sources.

READING: A brilliant, idiosyncratic collection of introductions and afterwords (plus some liner notes) by New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon—“one of contemporary literature’s most gifted prose stylists” (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times). In Bookends, Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon offers a compilation of pieces about literature—age-old classics as well as his own—that presents a unique look into his literary origins and influences, the books that shaped his taste and formed his ideas about writing and reading. Chabon asks why anyone would write an introduction, or for that matter, read one. His own daughter Rose prefers to skip them. Chabon's answer is simple and simultaneously profound: "a hope of bringing pleasure for the reader." Likewise, afterwords—they are all about shared pleasure, about the "pure love" of a work of art that has inspired, awakened, transformed the reader. Ultimately, this thought-provoking compendium is a series of love letters and thank-you notes, unified by the simple theme of the shared pleasure of discovery, whether it's the boyhood revelation of the most important story in Chabon's life (Ray Bradbury's "The Rocket Man"); a celebration of "the greatest literary cartographer of the planet Mars" (Edgar Rice Burroughs, with his character John Carter); a reintroduction to a forgotten master of ghost stories (M. R. James, ironically "the happiest of men"); the recognition that the worlds of Wes Anderson's films are reassembled scale models of our own broken reality (as is all art); Chabon's own rude awakening from the muse as he writes his debut novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh; or a playful parody of lyrical interpretation in the liner notes for Mark Ronson's Uptown Special, the true purpose of which, Chabon insists, is to "spread the gospel of sensible automotive safety and maintenance practices." Galaxies away from academic or didactic, Bookends celebrates wonder—and like the copy of The Phantom Tollbooth handed to young Michael by a friend of his father he never saw again—it is a treasured gift.

READING: In Typeset in the Future, blogger and designer Dave Addey invites sci-fi movie fans on a journey through seven genre-defining classics, discovering how they create compelling visions of the future through typography and design. The book delves deep into 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Alien, Blade Runner, Total Recall, WALL·E, and Moon, studying the design tricks and inspirations that make each film transcend mere celluloid and become a believable reality. These studies are illustrated by film stills, concept art, type specimens, and ephemera, plus original interviews with Mike Okuda (Star Trek), Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall), and Ralph Eggleston and Craig Foster (Pixar). Typeset in the Future is an obsessively geeky study of how classic sci-fi movies draw us in to their imagined worlds—and how they have come to represent “THE FUTURE” in popular culture.
