Absolutely American : four years at West Point by David Lipsky( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on complete, unprecedented access to West Point and its cadets, David Lipsky explores the academy's rich history, describes the demanding regimen that swallows students' days, and examines the Point as a reflection of our society. Is it a quaint anachronism, or does it still embody the ideals of equality, honesty, and loyalty that moved Theodore Roosevelt to proclaim it the most "absolutely American" institution? Lipsky tackles these questions through superbly crafted portraits of cadets and the elite officers who mold them, following them into classrooms, barracks, mess halls, and military exercises. His reportage extends from 1998 through 2002, arguably the most eventful four years in West Point history. He witnesses the end of hazing, the arrival of TV and telephones in dorm rooms, the exposure and concealment of several scandals, and the dramatic aftermath of 9/11. He depicts young people of every race and class, and details a rigorous training program that erases their preconceptions and makes them a tight-knit community

Three thousand dollars : stories by David Lipsky( Book )
4 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eleven sparkling stories of family, love, and art from New York Times–bestselling author David Lipsky My mother doesn’t know that I owe my father three thousand dollars. From the opening line of the acclaimed title story—a Best American Short Stories selection that first appeared in the New Yorker—to the tender last scene of “Springs, 1977,” this pitch-perfect collection explores the unsteady terrain of early adulthood and the complex legacy of family. Self-aware, creatively ambitious, and just privileged enough to be acutely aware of all that they lack, Lipsky’s characters are as real and unforgettable as the dilemmas they face—some of their own making, some that the world has thrust on them. In “Relativity,” a college junior transfers to the Ivy League in order to please his mother and make new friends; he quickly realizes the fault in his logic. In “Colonists,” a nervous young author searches for her muse at a New Hampshire writers’ retreat attended by a priest who pens erotic poetry and a composer working on a comic opera about the Alger Hiss trial. “ ‘Shh,’ ” the genesis of Lipsky’s highly praised novel The Art Fair, is the story of a dutiful son trying to shield his artist mother from the agony of her latest rejection. Witty, heartbreaking, and wise, the stories in Three Thousand Dollars are a testament to David Lipsky’s exceptional talent and to the power of short fiction to transform the smallest of moments into the greatest of truths

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"If you can think of times in your life that you've treated people with extraordinary decency and love, and pure uninterested concern, just because they were valuable as human beings.

And I think it's probably possible to achieve that. I think part of the job we're here for is to learn how to do it

Cocycle Constructions for Topological Field Theories by David Lipsky( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this thesis, we explore a chain-level construction in smooth Deligne cohomology that produces data for extended topological field theories. For closed oriented manifolds $Sigma$, this construction takes the form of a chain map $tau_Sigma$ from the smooth v{C}ech-Deligne complex on a manifold $X$ to a degree-shifted version of the same complex on the mapping space $X^Sigma$. More generally, if $Sigma$ has boundary $partial Sigma$, the construction produces a chain null-homotopy of the chain map $tau_{partial Sigma}$ associated to the boundary
