A four-point rundown of just some of the amazing new books we received yesterday

1. Judge a book by its back cover! Here are some blurbs from the back of Tina Fey's new memoir Bossypants:

"I hope that's not really the cover. That's really going to hurt sales." (Don Fey, Father of Tina Fey )

"Absolutely delicious!" (A Guy Who Eats Books )

"Totally worth it." (Trees )

"Do not print this glowing recommendation of Tina Fey's book until I've been dead a hundred years." (Mark Twain )

2. Five titles from Semiotext(e)'s Intervention pocket series, including the new edition of Christian Marazzi's The Violence of Financial Capitalism and Tiqqun's Introduction to Civil War (how prescient...).

3. Those of you who enjoyed Chris Kraus's contribution to the Intervention series, Where Art Belongs, may recognize this: the Bernadette Corporation's The Complete Poem, a 130-page poem with fashion ad inspired photographs of skinny, apathetic, denim-clad youth—"Self-unemployed Like a travel adapter, adapting the material of yourself to the tray table in the best-looking way possible.." Our generation's Howl?

4. Finally, the new n+1 with features on Google, Egypt, Wisconsin, and Terry Richardson.
