Rock N' Roll Women

“Rock ‘N’ Roll Women – Portraits of a Generation” (New poems by Jonah Raskin)

It’s as if you can almost hear Jonah Raskin performing these poems, whipping up the audience into a frenzy; didn’t Walt Whitman say that “to have great poets, there must be great audiences”?

God's Autobio

Review of God’s Autobio

I know Rolli has achieved greatness in “God’s Autobio” because from time to time he conjures up the spirit of La Fontaine’s Fables, and these are classics of French literature. However it probably says something altogether different about the reviewer that one of the stories, “Von Claire and the Tiger”, makes him think of another book – children’s classic “The Tiger Who Came To Tea”, because Rolli’s tiger story seems something like an equivalent tale for adults.

Review of The Ghost of Neil Diamond, a novel by David Milnes

Review of The Ghost of Neil Diamond, a novel by David Milnes

And an interview with the author. I spent money like water in Hong-Kong, the restaurants served the best duck I’ve ever tasted and the girls were glamorous and pretty. These days looking back I appreciate that I was almost certainly a disaster on two legs, long-haired with billowing red Harem trousers which I’d acquired on my journey thru India.

Finding 'contemporary resonance’ in World War I

Finding ‘contemporary resonance’ in World War I

“There’s no point writing about the past unless there’s some sort of contemporary resonance.” These may seem like strange words coming from Irish novelist John Boyne, who has almost exclusively written about the past and achieved worldwide renown for his book The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, which was set during the Holocaust. But during a stop in Vancouver to promote his World War I novel The Absolutist, he told Zouch that he’s always looking for parallels between the past and the present.
