New Book Alert: September 16-20, 2019

My weekly collection of new and notable books for your pop culture pleasure and edification: #ReadMoreTweetLess.

Bill Cunningham: On the Street: Five Decades of Iconic Photography by Bill Cunningham (Clarkson Potter; on sale September 3, 2019): Following his recent memoir Fashion Climbing keen-eyed photographer Bill Cunningham (RIP) gets a coffee table book. I read Fashion Climbing it’s a bit slow but so worth a read; do check it out. Classic New York City stories. #NewBookAlert for September 16, 2019.

A Trick of Light: Stan Lee’s Alliances by Stan Lee & Kat Rosenfield (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; Novel on sale September 17, 2019): One of Smiling Stan Lee’s final works and his partner on this project is Kind Kat Rosenfield (who is an outstanding writer!). A Trick of Light originally began as an audio adventure and now it’s paper! #TeamPaper #NewBookAlert for September 17, 2019.

Sontag: Her Life and Work by Benjamin Moser (Ecco Press; Biography on sale September 17, 2019): Susan Sontag is freshtastic…they don’t make em like this anymore! If you ain’t familiar with her impressive work then you’re in luck! I cannot wait to get into this; this is a tea worthy book. #NewBookAlert for September 18, 2019.

Permanent Record by Edward Snowden (Metropolitan Books; Politics on sale September 17, 2019): Edward Snowden’s memoir…read it in hardcover before it’s leaked to the internet. Also…remember that library FBI tracked list from Se7en….hmmm. Better take it out under John Doe…? I appreciate books like this: there is far too much noise & nonsense I can’t understand what the narrative is; please speak for yourself because often the media isn’t able to properly convey the correct narrative. #NewBookAlert for September 19, 2019.

Shula: The Coach of the NFL’s Greatest Generation by Mark Ribowsky (Liveright Publishing; NFL on sale August 27, 2019): A GOAT book: Don Shula had only two losing seasons in his 33-year career as a head coach in the NFL. Yo. I so wanna read this! #NewBookAlert for September 20, 2019.
