10:04 : a novel by Ben Lerner( Book )

23 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A beautiful and utterly original novel about making art, love, and children during the twilight of an empire Ben Lerner's first novel, Leaving the Atocha Station, was hailed as "one of the truest (and funniest) novels. of his generation" (Lorin Stein, The New York Review of Books), "a work so luminously original in style and form as to seem like a premonition, a comet from the future" (Geoff Dyer, The Observer). Now, his second novel departs from Leaving the Atocha Station's exquisite ironies in order to explore new territories of thought and feeling. In the last year, the narrator of 10:04 has enjoyed unexpected literary success, has been diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition, and has been asked by his best friend to help her conceive a child, despite his dating a rising star in the visual arts. In a New York of increasingly frequent super storms and political unrest, he must reckon with his biological mortality, the possibility of a literary afterlife, and the prospect of (unconventional) fatherhood in a city that might soon be under water. In prose that Jonathan Franzen has called "hilarious. cracklingly intelligent. and original in every sentence," Lerner captures what it's like to be alive now, when the difficulty of imagining a future has changed our relation to our present and our past. Exploring sex, friendship, medicine, memory, art, and politics, 10:04 is both a riveting work of fiction and a brilliant examination of the role fiction plays in our lives"--

Angle of yaw by Ben Lerner( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Angle of Yaw, Ben Lerner's ambitious second book of poetry, is an extended meditation on the commercialization of public space and speech. Combining philosophical insight with poetic experiment, political outrage with personal experience, Lerner's prose poems and lyrical sequences examine how technologies of viewing - aerial photography in particular - feed our spectacular culture an image of itself."--Jacket

The Lichtenberg figures by Ben Lerner( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lerner's poems mimic and explore the complex juxtapositions of contemporary culture through permutation, repetition, and collage. The vocabulary of academic theory collides with American slang, the idiom of the Old Testament meets the jargon of the Internet, and cliches are cracked open and made new and strange. Throughout this debut, flashes of autobiography, comedy, fury, and critique illuminate an eclectic sensibility that is sometimes in command of, and sometimes commanded by, the power of speech."--Jacket
The hatred of poetry by Ben Lerner( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The novelist and poet Ben Lerner argues that our hatred of poetry is ultimately a sign of its nagging relevance"--

Adam Gordon is a brilliant young American poet on a prestigious fellowship in Madrid, struggling to establish his sense of self and his relationship to art. Instead of following the dictates of his fellowship, Adam's research becomes a meditation on the possibility of the genuine in the arts and beyond. A witness to the 2004 Madrid train bombings and their aftermath, does he participate in historic events or merely watch them pass him by?

The other gives the explanations of the technology, lifestyle methods, treatments, and action steps that can take readers to wellness. Once considered "alternative" medicine, chiropractic treatment is now considered part of a balanced approach to health
Body by God : the owner's manual for maximized living by Ben Lerner( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Your body is by God. God preprogrammed you to look great, have outrageous health, and experience incredible happiness. In the human body, God created a perfect design, equipped with all the organs, tissues, and cells necessary for health, production, and reproduction. The problem, asserts Dr. Ben Lerner, is when we as humans interfere with God's design for our bodies. Junk food, high-stress living, and neglecting exercise are just a few of the things we do to hinder our bodies' performance. In Body by God, Dr. Lerner offers a comprehensive plan for getting in touch with our bodies in four areas: nutrition, exercise, stress management, and time management. His "5-in-5" plan is designed to instill the good habits that will lead to optimum health benefits. Readers will learn how to get in shape with 10-minute workouts, reprogram the way they react to stress, and more. "Owner's Manual Tips" give specific ways to apply the material to real life. Our bodies are "fearfully and wonderfully made." With the help of Body by God, readers will learn how to achieve the highest level of performance from God's handiwork
