Point of Contact by Alicia Borinsky

Book Description

The sports issue of Point of Contact features conversations, essays, and artwork by and about coach Jim Boeheim, writers Tim Green and Mary Karr, Chief Oren Lyons and Lacrosse coach Roy Simmons, Jr., film maker Owen Shapiro, and novelist and teacher Tom Friedmann. Pedro Cuperman writes in the introduction that the topics featured go beyond the commercialism and drug abuse in the sports industry. Incorporating everything from an essay on Quidditch and the obsession of English elite boarding schools with physical education to a conversation about Lacrosse between Chief Oren Lyons of the Onondaga Nation and Roy Simmons, Jr., the work in this issue explores old topics from the ""exuberance of the body"" to ""sports as a metaphor for spiritual endurance.

Books By Author Alicia Borinsky

Lost Cities Go to Paradise by Alicia Borinsky Lost Cities Go to Paradise, Paperback (July 2015)

Composed of many layered scenes, unforgettable characters, snapshots, and vignettes, this collection of quick-witted poems and short fiction mixes deceit and conceit with moments of tenderness and the elusive nature of humanity, asking if identity is more than a festival of masks and self-invention.

One Way Tickets by Alicia Borinsky One Way Tickets, Hardback (March 2011)

"Borinsky discusses the works of writers in exile, including Vladimir Nabokov, writing in English in the United States, Julio Cortazar in Paris, and Witold Gombrowicz in Buenos Aires, as well as Jorge Luis Borges, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Oscar Hijuelos, Cristina Garcia, Junot Diaz, and Clarice Lispector"--Provided by publisher.

Frivolous Women and Other Sinners / Frivolas y Pecadoras by Alicia Borinsky Frivolous Women and Other Sinners / Frivolas y Pecadoras, Hardback (June 2009)

A collection of poems that invites readers to visit the darker and lighter sides of laughter and love and feel the tenderness of recovered memories as they cross the bridges of relationships and stroll down the mysterious streets of childhood.

Dreams of the Abandoned Seducer by Alicia Borinsky Dreams of the Abandoned Seducer, Paperback (May 1998)

A novel that takes place in the new 'free market' era of personal choices and relations: a chaotic, sometimes hopeful, often comic world that has supplanted the old order of political terror and clearly demarcated ideological divides. It draws upon the sentimentality and ephemera of popular culture.
