From the website: Games, play, and sport are intricately connected to creation and art. Formal challenges, whether by the French Oulipo movement or the Surrealists with their Exquisite Corpses have yielded surprising and deeply moving literary works. The parallels between sport and art and life itself are many--heroes, drama, reversals, betrayals, irrational loyalties, heartbreak, euphoria. In this issue we examine these intersections, from Lord Whimsy's explanation of cricket and Karen Russell's rules of Antarctic tailgating to Martha McPhee's stunning fictional take on bond trading as blood sport; from Blake Eskin's time immersed in a German board game convention to David Mamet's argument that theater itself is a sport. In the end, it isn't about the destination, but the journey; not the game itself, but how you play it. Jawaharlal Nehru said, "Life is like a game of cards. The hand you are dealt is determinism; the way you play it is free will." Enjoy

From the website: The best writers not only create worlds beyond our imagination but also lead us into places we'd never dare venture alone. Over their long careers, Stephen King and Margaret Atwood have continually surprised us with their dark worlds. In his new short story "Afterlife," King transports us into the mind of a man at the white-light moment of his death. And Atwood, master of speculative fiction and a fervent conservationist, talks about dystopian societies and vanishing species with Tin House editor-at-large Elissa Schappell. Critic Parul Sehgal explores issues of race, class, and gender politics, as well as the significance of African and African American women's hair, in her interview with Orange Prize-winning novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. But discovery isn't always about darkness, especially in the summer, when thoughts turn to sun and vacation. In this issue, poet Tom Sleigh, who has seven collections of poetry and numerous awards to his credit, continues to burn bright with two new poems; Katie Arnold-Ratliff writes about eating her way through Disneyland; and Jennifer Gilmore chronicles her attempt to make a meal with her Greek mother-in-law on the island of Naxos. We hope you'll follow us to both our dark and our light places, and we appreciate you taking us along--to the mountains, to the beach, to the backyard hammock

Happy : a memoir by Alex Lemon( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
His freshman year of college, Alex Lemon was supposed to be the star catcher on the Macalester College baseball team. He was the boy getting every girl, the hard-partying kid who everyone called Happy, often without even knowing his real name. In the spring of 1997, he had his first stroke. For two years Lemon coped with his deteriorating health by sinking deeper into alcohol and drug abuse. His charming and carefree exterior masked his self-destructive and sometimes cruel behavior as he endured two more brain bleeds and a crippling depression. After undergoing brain surgery, he is nursed back to health by his free-spirited artist mother, who once again teaches him to stand on his own. Alive with unexpected humor and sensuality, Happy is a hypnotic self-portrait of a young man confronting the wreckage of his own body; it is also the deeply moving story of a mother's redemptive and healing powers. Alex Lemon's Technicolor sentences pop and sing as he writes about survival - of the body and of the human spirit
