In The South's Best Butts, food writer and Southern gentleman, Matt Moore, waves away clouds of smoke to give barbecue-lovers a sneak peek into the kitchens and smokehouses of a handful of the Barbecue Belt's most revered pitmasters. He uncovers their tried-and-true techniques gleaned over hours, days, and years toiling by fire and spit, coaxing meltingly tender perfection from the humble pig„the foundation of Southern BBQ. More than a book of recipes, Matt explores how the marriage of meat, cooking method, and sauce varies from place to place based on history and culture, climate, available ingredients and wood, and always the closely-guarded, passed-down secrets followed like scripture. Because no meat plate is complete in the South without "all the fixin's" to round out the meal, Matt cues up patron-sanctioned recipes from every establishment he visits. One thing is for certainƒthis book will change the way you cook, smoke, grill, and eat, but be warned: Your own butt may suffer in the process.

In a forthright and uncompromising manner, Olúfémi Táíwò explores Africa’s hostility toward modernity and how that hostility has impeded economic development and social and political transformation. What has to change for Africa to be able to respond to the challenges of modernity and globalization? Táíwò insists that Africa can renew itself only by fully engaging with democracy and capitalism and by mining its untapped intellectual resources. While many may not agree with Táíwò’s positions, they will be unable to ignore what he says. This is a bold exhortation for Africa to come into the 21st century.

Funny face! is an activity book based on visual jokes. Children draw, fold and colour to make surprising and funny things happen to all kinds of faces on the page. The inspired use of die cuts, folds and split pages helps children reveal a variety of visual gags; for example: doodling through a pair of die- cut shaggy eyebrows on one picture draws a droopy moustache on a picture on the page below; opening up a gatefold turns a little boys tiny ears into giant ones. More funny faces appear on pages split horizontally into three. Turning the sections back and forth creates mixed-up faces with different hats, noses and beards. Pages fold vertically to create characters with large noses or thought-bubble hair. The child is challenged to keep looking until they find all the jokes and tricks. The layout is generous enough to allow children to add their own doodling and colouring too.

Poetry. "Leopoldine never as we used to say 'cops out.'" Sparrow "I like that Leopoldine's last name is Core because that is what her poems are: essential (like heaven on earth) and ephemeral (as in apple core). Her talent's in world-making, conjuring dialogic, chimeric moods that dust up an effet-monde only to let it drop casually, a strip-club curtain. Her zen-archery ease with poetry almost lets you forget how hard it really is to write like this: to be 'gutting with text' one's visions writing not *about* God & sex but simply writing them. Her fluctuating registers and the sweet, cocky, somewhat lapidary sense of space on the page make me think of Han Shan or St. Giraud of the Naomi Poems. Core should write forever." Ana Bo i evi "Leopoldine is not afraid to be funny, but her jokes have friction." Sparrow "'It's important, you know, ' Core writes, 'for geniuses / to be sloppy / It makes other people brave.' Well, I rolled around in her slop and found an ecstatic, fleshy tenderness. I wanted to lose whole days touching myself and reverting to my egg beginnings. Of course, these poems made me love her, made me think I was the only person in the world to ever fall in love this way. In VERONICA BENCH Core exposes us, out-greeds us, jokes freely with us and speaks better than us. You should be bathing with these poems, you should rub up against them, you should examine your own monstrosity more, you should dote on your pain, you should be ashamed you ever were ashamed of being meat, you should let others record your girlhood, your infancy, your fullness, you should stop trying to be a better person before you die, you should read this book until it's memorized and then we can all be blissed out in its captivity." Jenny Zhang "It's hard to read these poems without falling in love at least for an afternoon with Leopoldine. She isn't speaking so much as flying." Sparrow"

The Language Of Jokes

In this highly readable and thought-provoking book, Delia Chiaro explores the pragmatics of word play, using frameworks normally adopted in descriptive linguistics. Using examples from personally recorded conversations, she examines the structure of jokes, quips, riddles and asides. Chiaro explores degrees of conformity to and deviation from established conventions; the `tellability' of jokes, and the interpretative role of the listener; the creative use of puns, word play and discourse. The emphasis in her analysis is on sociocultural contexts for the production and reception of jokes, and she examines the extent to which jokes are both universal in their appeal, and specific to a particular culture.
