<b>Shortlisted for the 2018 Ondaatje Prize</b><br /><b>Shortlisted for the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>A masterful and entirely fresh portrait of great hopes and dashed dreams in a mythical city from a major new literary voice.</b><br /><br /><i>Everything that could possibly be wrong with a city was wrong with Calcutta</i>.<br /><br />When Kushanava Choudhury arrived in New Jersey at the age of twelve, he had already migrated halfway around the world four times. After graduating from Princeton, he moved back to the world which his immigrant parents had abandoned, to a city built between a river and a swamp, where the moisture-drenched air swarms with mosquitos after sundown. <i></i><br /><i></i><br />Once the capital of the British Raj, and then India's industrial and cultural hub, by 2001 Calcutta was clearly past its prime. Why, his relatives beseeched him, had he returned? Surely, he could have moved to Delhi, Bombay or Bangalore, where a new Golden Age of consumption was being born. <br /><br />Yet fifteen million people still lived in Calcutta. Working for the<i> Statesman, </i>its leading English newspaper, Kushanava Choudhury found the streets of his childhood unchanged by time. Shouting hawkers still overran the footpaths, fish-sellers squatted on bazaar floors; politics still meant barricades and bus burnings, while Communist ministers travelled in motorcades. <br /><br />Sifting through the chaos for the stories that never make the papers, Kushanava Choudhury paints a soulful, compelling portrait of the everyday lives that make Calcutta. Written with humanity, wit and insight, <i>The Epic City </i>is an unforgettable depiction of an era, and a city which is a world unto itself.

Series creator Joss Whedon brought <i>Buffy the Vampire Slayer </i>back to life with this comics-only follow-up to Season 7 of the television show. Aptly named <i>Season 8</i>, these comics are the official sequel to <i>Buffy</i> and continue where the live-action series left off with the Slayer, her friends, and their ongoing challenge to fight the forces of darkness.<br /><br /><br />After the destruction of the Hellmouth, the Slayers--newly legion--have gotten organized, but it's not long before new and old enemies begin popping up. Buffy, Xander, Willow, and a very different Dawn are introduced to the season's big bad, Twilight, and begin to understand the incredible reach of this mysterious threat. Meanwhile, rebel Slayer Faith teams up with Giles to handle a menace on the other side of the Atlantic. It's a dirty job, and Faith is just the girl to do it! Then, as Twilight's ominous influence continues to expand Buffy and her Slayers travel to Tokyo to face a new kind of vampire with powers they've only witnessed in Dracula . . . And, when trouble with Buffy's scythe comes to light, Willow and Buffy head to New York to investigate the secrets behind the ancient weapon; ever full of the unexpected, Buffy is transported to a dystopian future where her first chance meeting is with Fray, future Slayer!<br /><br />This oversized omnibus edition is one of two volumes that will contain the entirety of <i>Season 8</i>. It includes the first four arcs of the series along with one-shots and short stories written by Joss Whedon, Brian K. Vaughan, Drew Goddard, and Jeph Loeb, with art by the acclaimed Georges Jeanty, as well as Karl Moline, Paul Lee, Cliff Richards, and more.<br /><br /><b>“Joss Whedon, the man, the myth, the legend, writes the comic with the same genius as he did the show. The art, penciled by Georges Jeanty, is as faboo as the writing.”—<i>Janet Evanovich, New York Times</i> best-selling author of <i>Hard Eight</i></b><br />  <br /><b> “<i>Buffy</i> the comic might be every bit as good as <i>Buffy</i> the TV show.”—<i>Entertainment Weekly</i> (featured as one of the Best Comics of 2007)</b><br /><br /><b>“Vaughan is a fantastic writer that conveys emotion and character to a degree of perfection.”—<i>Wired</i></b><br />  <br /><b> “Drew Goddard is a rare breed: a genre writer who crafts truly inspired characters and lyrical, emotional scenes.”—<i>J. J. Abrams</i> (<i>Alias</i>, <i>Lost</i>, <i>Cloverfield</i>)</b><br />  <br /><b> “<i>Buffy</i> Season 8 is run like the television series from which it came . . . a classic evolving specimen for this era of ever shifting media platforms.”—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br />  <br /><b> “The whole gang returns, kicking ass and splitting infinitives in Whedon’s inimitable dialogue.”—<i>Wired</i> </b><br />  <br /><b> “Series creator Whedon effectively sucks devotees back into his Hellmouth.”—<i>Entertainment Weekly</i></b>

On trips into town, they would marvel at the strange visual world of Manhattan--its blackened sidewalk gum-wads, "those <i>West Side Story</i>-things" (fire escapes)--and its crazily honeycombed systems and grids.<br /> <br /> Told through Chast's singularly zany, laugh-out-loud, touching, and true cartoons, <i>Going Into Town </i>is part New York stories (the "overheard and overseen" of the island borough), part personal and practical guide to walking, talking, renting, and venting--an irresistible, one-of-a-kind love letter to the city.
