A large segment of the population struggles with feelings of being detached from themselves and their loved ones. They feel flawed, and blame themselves. Running on Empty will help them realize that they're suffering not because of something that happened to them in childhood, but because of something that didn't happen. It's the white space in their family picture, the background rather than the foreground. This will be the first self-help book to bring this invisible force to light, educate people about it, and teach them how to overcome it.

"It's a lot easier just not to write." So argues Josefina Vicens' alter ego, Jose Garcfa, in The Empty Book. Yet his need to write exists independently of his perception that an "ordinary" person has "nothing to say." In the very act of writing about "nothing," Garcia paradoxically tells a story that does have meaning and significance--the story of his own attempt to transcend the limits of mundane existence through creative work.Winner of the prestigious Xavier Villaurrutia prize, The Empty Book was first published in Mexico as El libro vacfo in 1958. A novel about the writing process, it stands as a forerunner of the metafiction boom of the 1960s that included the works of such writers as Cortazar, Pacheco, and Elizondo. The accessibility of its language and themes makes this novel highly democratic and empowering, rescuing literature from the realm of high art and opening it to participation by "ordinary" people.A novel for everyone interested in the process of writing--and not writing-- The Empty Book presents a novelist who deserves to be much better known by English-language readers. Josefina Vicens (1915-1988) was a noted Mexican screenwriter and author of a second novel, Los anos falsos. David Lauer is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Spanish and Portuguese at Stanford University.

A dystopic look at what happens to one American town when all the fossil fuels run out... It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be. Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.
