I Swear I Saw This records visionary anthropologist Michael Taussig’s reflections on the fieldwork notebooks he kept through forty years of travels in Colombia. Taking as a starting point a drawing he made in Medellin in 2006—as well as its caption, “I swear I saw this”—Taussig considers the fieldwork notebook as a type of modernist literature and the place where writers and other creators first work out the imaginative logic of discovery. Notebooks mix the raw material of observation with reverie, juxtaposed, in Taussig’s case, with drawings, watercolors, and newspaper cuttings, which blend the inner and outer worlds in a fashion reminiscent of Brion Gysin and William Burroughs’s surreal cut-up technique. Focusing on the small details and observations that are lost when writers convert their notes into finished pieces, Taussig calls for new ways of seeing and using the notebook as form. Memory emerges as a central motif in I Swear I Saw This as he explores his penchant to inscribe new recollections in the margins or directly over the original entries days or weeks after an event. This palimpsest of afterthoughts leads to ruminations on Freud’s analysis of dreams, Proust’s thoughts on the involuntary workings of memory, and Benjamin’s theories of history—fieldwork, Taussig writes, provokes childhood memories with startling ease. I Swear I Saw This exhibits Taussig’s characteristic verve and intellectual audacity, here combined with a revelatory sense of intimacy. He writes, “drawing is thus a depicting, a hauling, an unraveling, and being impelled toward something or somebody.” Readers will exult in joining Taussig once again as he follows the threads of a tangled skein of inspired associations.

Chauffeur Carol Shedrick stepped out of her limo on a busy street on a Saturday night. She was ready to open the back door and let out her neighbors and their friends who had asked her to take them out for a night on the town.

As a chauffeur for many years, Shedrick often drove for celebrities and government officials from America as well as other countries. In "I Swear I Wasn't Listening!", she shares the most interesting, touching, and hilarious true stories from the regular, everyday clients to those who were celebrating special events in their lives from the back of her limousine. Shedrick will have you laughing at the antics of crazy women and a birthday party for a ninety-year-old grandfather, and her poignant description of a marriage proposal on a cliff high above town will tug at your heartstrings. Whether you are a Don Juan wannabe who wants to charm your lady or a group of friends out for a good time, remember your chauffeur just might be trying not to listen!
