Was Woodstock the First Postmodern Event? (excerpt with link)

Escape Artists pt. 3 or Queen of the Mist

Overlooked no more. Immortalized right here. Imagine this: the barrel is nearly five feet tall. A small coffin, and only a tiny bit wider. An antique ice box. The location, a precarious, treacherous spot: bobbing, weaving, and dunking in the Niagara River just yards away from the chaotic, 160-foo... Read more of this blog post »

Things to keep in mind (The secret of crows)

When you stroll down the street at 4:19 in the morning, and you suddenly stop—to look at two crows playing in a pine tree across whatever suburban street fate has stuck you on for the last year-and-a-half, there’s a history of crows, a tradition of crows, a discourse of crows that’s stopped you,...

My wife and I just watched the first four episodes of the British Years and Years on HBO.  It's about as powerful and caustic a depiction of the rise of fascism in our time - that is, so far in the short series (six episodes), 2019-2027 - as you'll find.  Which is, searing and gut-wrenching indee...

This story is straight from the heart. Told in a passive voice and as a first person account through Elice and Micha's eyes. Their thoughts tug your heartstings. Their memory of their past life, the war and of course the present. They never fell out of love but exhuming those feelings hurt. They... Read more of this blog post »

How immigrants give American companies a powerful boost against Chinese rivals

By Benjamin A.T. Graham | –

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
