LARB Quarterly Journal Fall 2013 Inaugural Issue

Author:
Series: LARB Quarterly Journal, Book 124
The Los Angeles Review of Books launched its inaugural print edition, the LARB Quarterly Journal, in the fall of 2013, fulfilling the promise to publish fun, smart longform writing in both print and digital pages. While LARB started as a digital-only magazine, we believed from the start that the printed book, far from being dead, was in fact alive and well, and remains one of the great alembics for public discourse today.

Aimlessness

Aimlessness

$19.95eBook: $18.99

Our culture values striving, purpose, achievement, and accumulation. This book asks us to get sidetracked along the way. It praises aimlessness as a source of creativity and an alternative to the demand for linear, efficient, instrumentalist thinking and productivity.

Aimlessness collects ideas and stories from around the world that value indirection, wandering, getting lost, waiting, meandering, lingering, sitting, laying about, daydreaming, and other ways to be open to possibility, chaos, and multiplicity. Tom Lutz considers aimlessness as a fundamental human proclivity and method, one that has been vilified by modern industrial societies but celebrated by many religious traditions, philosophers, writers, and artists. He roams a circular path that snakes and forks down sideroads, traipsing through modernist art, nomadic life, slacker comedies, drugs, travel, nirvana, and oblivion. The book is structured as a recursive, disjunctive spiral of short sections, a collage of narrative, anecdotal, analytic, and lyrical passages—intended to be read aimlessly, to wind up someplace unexpected.
