Art, Sex, Politics

In a new, provocative collection of essays, William Eaton, the author of Surviving the Twenty-First Century, shares the pleasures of a life full of questions, tastes, reading and more visual arts. “That we are animals, that is as sure as ever. How savagely we behave toward one another and toward other species and inorganic others. How we rub affectionately up against one another and—however desperately—make love.”

—Sven Birkerts, Editor of Agni and author of The Gutenberg Elegies: The Fate of Reading in an Electronic Age

A delicacy full of surprises and pleasures. Entertaining, yet packs a quiet intellectual wallop.

—Claire Stewart, author of As Long as we Both Shall Eat: A History of Wedding Food and Feasts

Full of insights and speculations, and very enjoyable to read. In the Eaton world linkages are everywhere.

—Nahid Rachlin, author of Persian Girls, Foreigner, and Jumping Over Fire  

William Eaton never doesn’t think. You may not always (or ever) agree with him. But I don’t always agree with Montaigne either. For the price of a sandwich plus tax, Eaton’s little book could start you thinking about your own life, perhaps in ways you never before considered.

—Nina Mishkin, writer and lawyer

William Eaton finds arresting themes in unusual places. The writing is masterful and wonderfully absorbing .

—Edward F. Mooney, author of On Soren Kierkegaard· Dialogue, Polemics, Lost Intimacy and Time

"I admire [Serving House Books] for the quality work they’re putting out plus the notable writers they’re publishing."
