Ander Monson, Bojan Louis, and Manuel Muñoz, faculty members in the University of Arizona's acclaimed Creative Writing MFA Program – which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year – have books published this fall by Graywolf Press , a leading independent publisher. A deep dive into Predator and male American culture First up is Ander Monson ‘s book Predator: A Memoir, A Movie, an Obsession , which was released on September 6. Monson received a prestigious Guggenheim Award to write this book in 2017. “In his first memoir, Ander Monson guides readers through a scene-by-scene exploration of the 1987 film Predator , which he has watched 146 times. He turns his obsession into a lens through which he poignantly examines his own life, formed by mainstream, White, male American culture,” notes the book description. Praise for the book includes: “An unlikely treatise on manhood with the charm of a late-night movie marathon” (Kirkus); “One of the more fascinating and eccentric books I've read this decade” (Jeff VanderMeer); and “This is a book filled with ideas and also an intensely personal book, one that only Ander Monson could have written—with his wit, honesty, and considerable powers of insight” (Charles Yu). You can read this wonderful review of the book by UArizona emeritus professor Alison Deming.
