#MeToo: The Survivor's Cry For Justice

Fewer than 1% of rapes lead to felony convictions.

One in 3 women experience sexual assault in their lifetime. 

84% of men with histories of having been sexually abused (as documented by social service agencies, which means the case was serious) do not consider themselves victims of abuse.

One in two transgender individuals are sexually abused or assaulted at some point in their lives.

National Book Awards Finalists Announced

The National Book Awards were established in 1950 to celebrate the best writing in America. Since 1989, they have been overseen by the National Book Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to celebrate the best literature in America, expand its audience, and ensure that books have a prominent place in American culture. Although other categories have been recognized in the past, the Awards currently honors the best Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Translated Literature, and Young People’s Literature published each year.

The New Wild West

I will let those working on doctoral theses at UT or SMU determine whether the Western genre had its renaissance with Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove or Cormac McCarthy’s All the Pretty Horses. Those fights are too esoteric for me, and like all academic fights, probably all the more vicious because the stakes are so small.

Marion Winik at Interabang Books 9/26

Interabang Books is thrilled to be hosting author Marion Winik on Thursday, September 26 at 6:00 p.m., in conversation with Lori Feathers to discuss The Big Book of the Dead. Marion’s unconventional and captivating collection of two-page essays celebrates the lives of the people who have impacted her. Part memoir, part biography, Marion pays tribute to deceased family and friends as well as her influences, such as cultural icons David Bowie and Prince.

Malcolm Gladwell Comes to SMU

Interabang Books has partnered with The Bridge Builders Author Circle Lecture, presented by the University’s Cultural Intelligence initiative, CIQ@SMU, to welcome Malcolm Gladwell. He’ll discuss his new book TALKING TO STRANGERS at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7 at SMU’s McFarlin Auditorium as part of SMU’s cultural intelligence initiative.

Found in Translation

Lost within the vast forest of literary fiction that we have at Interabang is that subset of books from non-English speaking authors: books in translation. No doubt you are familiar with the more popular ones, like Tolstoy and Kafka, or more contemporary authors, like Ferrante and Murakami, but there are so many more choices than those. In a quick look through our stacks I discovered over 200 titles in translation, from Albanian to Thai, and even one translated from Faroese.

The Dog Days of Summer

What is it about canines that fascinates humans? Why are dogs known as man’s best friend? This theme has been explored in books from children’s literature about the bond between a child and a puppy to nonfiction covering the neuroscience of dogs. Though humanity may never come up with one single answer, this is central to any explanation: dogs are amazing beings. As we mark the “dog days of summer,” we invite you to check out some of our favorites featuring these wonderful animals.

Oh, the Places You'll Eat

Food should be an enjoyable experience, elevated from the merely necessary to the sustenance of life. To that end, we have highlighted some of our favorite books that break the monotony of our day-to-day culinary habits and inject a bold note of flavor into otherwise dull dinners.

The 60’s: Once Upon a Time…

The 1960s will be remembered as perhaps the most turbulent decade of the century, and 1968 and 1969 are particularly notable. From the sublime (Apollo 11 and the moon landing) to the ridiculous (BBC’s first Monty Python episodes), upheavals in our culture were mirrored in the arts. Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” is both a tribute to this time and to the film industry. With its parallel story involving the Manson cult and Sharon Tate, it shows us the dark side of human nature even as we reached to the stars. Below are some titles that cover this time.

Apollo 11's 50th Anniversary

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” With those words, 50 years ago on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong of Apollo 11 became the first man to set foot on the moon. For people born during the Space Race, this moment feels like yesterday, while for those born later, it feels like ancient history. Either way, the allure of exploration is something that binds all ages together. Below are some of our books highlighting the Apollo mission and the efforts of those who made it possible.
