The Insomniac Library is proud to reissue Gwendolyn MacEwen’s first novel, more than forty years after its original appearance in 1963. MacEwen described what she set out to achieve as a "sort of powerful poetic mad half-abandoned prose somewhere between [Kenneth] Patchen and Virginia Woolf." Set in a medieval past that has distinctly modern overtones, the novel is about Julian, a young man who believes he is Christ. Wandering the countryside in a horse-drawn wagon, Julian learns "to suspend logic like a whale on a thread." He becomes a master of alchemy, performing "miracles" like curing

MacEwen sets out to write a deeply serious novel that also functions as entertaining historical fiction. The novel’s hero is Akhenaton, Pharaoh of Egypt’s Eighteenth Dynasty, who was the first ruler to introduce the idea of monotheism. Akhenaton’s single-mindedness in his quest for his own brand of reason is a powerfully paradoxical distillation of the artistic temperament: originality, fertility and beauty set against death and despair and an inability to love. Includes an Afterword by the author’s sister.

How to improve quality and productivity through non-verbal signs, signals, controls, and constraints.

From the Reliance Building and Coney Island to the Kimbell Museum and Disney Hall, the United States has been at the forefront of modern architecture. American life has generated many of the quintessential images of modern life, both generic types and particular buildings. Gwendolyn Wright’s USA is an engaging account of this evolution from the late nineteenth century to the twenty-first. Upending conventional arguments about the origin of American modern architecture, Wright shows that it was not a mere offshoot of European modernism brought across the Atlantic Ocean by émigrés but rather
