Mike Kelley by Brand: Prestel USA
Product Description
This thematic retrospective catalogue is the most comprehensive volume ever published on the iconoclastic American artist Mike Kelley.

Beginning in the mid-1970s, Mike Kelley assembled an incredibly diverse and often controversial body of work. Working across many disciplines, he created works on paper, paintings, sculpture, video, installation, music and sound works, and performances that managed to be at once shocking yet funny, and complex yet accessible. This companion volume to a much-anticipated retrospective exhibition was conceived in close collaboration with the artist as an overview of his career—from his early Performative Sculptures and Objects to the "abject" sculptures made of old stuffed animals to the multi-part video installation Day Is Done to the ambitious Mobile Homestead, the artist’s final work before his untimely passing in 2012. This book features essays and a fully annotated plate section, as well as a newly researched and revised exhibition chronology, performance history, videography, discography, and bibliography of Kelley’s work. In addition, the publication includes the artist’s last interview. Mike Kelley promises to be the definitive reference on the work of this singular and highly influential artist.

Staying power: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery by Kelly Scott
Product Description
NATIONAL BEST SELLER

A stunning, personal memoir from the astronaut and modern-day hero who spent a record-breaking year aboard the International Space Station—a message of hope for the future that will inspire for generations to come.


The veteran of four spaceflights and the American record holder for consecutive days spent in space, Scott Kelly has experienced things very few have. Now, he takes us inside a sphere utterly hostile to human life. He describes navigating the extreme challenge of long-term spaceflight, both life-threatening and mundane: the devastating effects on the body; the isolation from everyone he loves and the comforts of Earth; the catastrophic risks of colliding with space junk; and the still more haunting threat of being unable to help should tragedy strike at home--an agonizing situation Kelly faced when, on a previous mission, his twin brother's wife, American Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, was shot while he still had two months in space.

     Kelly's humanity, compassion, humor, and determination resonate throughout, as he recalls his rough-and-tumble New Jersey childhood and the youthful inspiration that sparked his astounding career, and as he makes clear his belief that Mars will be the next, ultimately challenging, step in spaceflight.

     In Endurance, we see the triumph of the human imagination, the strength of the human will, and the infinite wonder of the galaxy.
Amazon.com Review
An Amazon Best Book of October 2017: Ask a child what they want to be when they grow up and one of the most popular responses is one that makes parents swoon: an astronaut. This hopeful enthusiasm wanes when their son or daughter starts bringing notes home from the teacher, complaining that they have the attention span of gnat, and need to stop parkouring on school property. Mums and dads, take heart. This description isn’t far off from a young Scott Kelly, not the bookish type either, and yet it was a book he happened upon that dramatically changed the trajectory of his life: Tom Wolfe’s The Right Stuff. Kelly was so inspired by this examination of the courageous test pilots who made high speed flight and space exploration possible that he was able to channel all of his frenetic energy into achieving the goal of becoming one. Endurance traces this journey, and chronicles the year Kelly spent on the International Space Station, as well as the effects it had on his body (information NASA needs as they plan a mission to Mars). Kelly answers many of the questions we have about life in space, from the profound to the mundane (turns out astronauts give bad haircuts and unclog toilets like the rest of us earthbound peeps). He also imparts the lessons and wisdom gleaned from his extraordinary adventures. Chief among them, and especially apropos given the increasingly divisive world we live in: “Putting this space station into orbit…is the hardest thing that humans have ever done, and it stands as proof that when we set our minds to something hard, when we work together, we can do anything, including solving our problems here on Earth.” Endurance is a fascinating, moving, uplifting read. --Erin Kodicek, Amazon Book Review

Books

  • Cap Anson 2

    2015. ISBN: 9780972557412,0972557415. 436 pages.

    This is the definitive biography of the Hall of Fame player, Mike Kelly, who was the most likely model, if any single player was, for the title character in Ernest Thayer's 1888 poem ``Casey at the Bat." A year earlier, Kelly became famous when Chicago sold him to Boston for a then-record price of $10,000, about $200,000 today. Until the final year of his life, 1894, he drew exceptionally colorful and informative coverage. In May 2005, the San Diego Union-Tribune called Kelly's 85-page 1888 book one of the ten most influential baseball books of all time ( http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/baseball/20050516-9999-lz1s16books.html). Kelly's definitive biography fully incorporates those aspects of the 1888 book that provide significant insights into Kelly (the 1888 book was ghostwritten and Cap Anson 2 fully accounts for his ghostwriter's writing elsewhere about Kelly). A 1996 Kelly biography by Scarecrow Press credited Kelly's book to the wrong ghostwriter.Cap Anson 2 also closely integrates Kelly with the one other player with as unusual a personality up to 1900, Cap Anson, his captain-manager for seven seasons and the first player to 3,000 hits. Also detailed are their similar interests off the field, including in acting, hunting and playing billiards. Kelly acted, literally and figuratively, through close associations with members of the Boston Elks, a fraternal group with theatrical ties well into the twentieth century. Kelly was exceptionally colorful (a main nickname, ``The $10,000 Beauty,'' derived from an actress who won a $10,000 beauty contest offered by circus owner Adam Forepaugh) and his funny mannerisms on the field were legendary in Boston until "market-driven journalism'' took hold, leading the Boston Globe and Boston Herald to extinguish their own rich past on Kelly in favor of subscriber- and advertiser-friendly figures such as Ted Williams.More than just an ode to a single player dressed up around already exhausted eras such as the 1940s and 1950s, the Kelly book is also the definitive biography of the actors and musicians most interesting to relate to the national pastime up to 1900: comic actors Nat Goodwin, De Wolf Hopper, Digby Bell and Maurice Barrymore (Drew's great-grandfather); Shakespearean actors Edwin Booth, Lawrence Barrett and Alexander Salvini; playwright Charles Hoyt; lyricist William ``Billy'' Jerome; theatrical agent George W. Floyd; and composer John Philip Sousa.The book's lone appendix, betting on baseball up to 1900 and featuring Hall of Famer Anson, was the most important new historical compliment to Pete Rose's 2004 biography. Cap Anson 2: The Theatrical and Kingly Mike Kelly: U.S. Team Sport's First Media Sensation and Baseball's Original Casey at the Bat is the second in a series of baseball books to piece together, rather than sample, the vast newspaper record of the nineteenth century. Cap Anson 1: When Captaining Meant Something: Leadership in Baseball's Early Years (2003) featured early baseball through the once-significant roles of captains and captain-managers. Cap Anson was a longtime captain (player)-manager of Chicago's National League team, and that was the first book (with the exception of his ghostwritten autobiography in the year 1900), in which he is definitively and independently discussed. This is the second.
