Vera Q. Vera Q.'s blog:
Il fatto è che tu vuoi leggermi tra le gambe.
Ma si tratta di uno scritto incolonnato dall'alto al basso.
Un solco tracciato dall'aratro in un campo.
E i tuoi occhi, e le tue mani, non conoscono la fatica del contadino.
E dunque, pensi di esserne davvero capace?

Vera Q.

Environmentalists do not believe in privacy, at least not our privacy.

In their relentless drive to eradicate the infestation of humans from the Big Blue Marble, they stick their (grubby, brown-tinted) noses into our private lives, including our bathrooms. More specifically, they slithered in bet... Read more of this blog post »

Anne Enright has a new novel coming out later this month, that I almost daren’t read. I’ve read the excerpt in the Irish Times, and Belinda McKeon’s review, and this should be enough to convince me that I shouldn’t. But, as usual, having the reckless streak that I do, I’ll probably ignore my o...

I love to play tennis. Love it. Brad and I once spent the better part of a day on vacation in Miami pummeling each other on the court in our own version of “game of love.” So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I thoroughly enjoyed the new book GAME OF LOVE by Ara Grigorian.

My wife confessed something to me this week: whenever I leave on a bike ride, whether it’s a brief 15-mile jaunt or a journey that will last 30 to 50 miles, she says a little prayer. She prays that I will come home safely.

Every review has value.Last week, I wrote a highly sarcastic post on how to write a book review.

But I've come to the conclusion that the more pertinent question is, how do you read a book review - a review of your book.
