Invisible Cities, the Opera

Invisible Cities by Italo CalvinoComposer Chris Cerrone adapted Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities as an opera, and the result, to my mind, is a masterpiece--a fully-realized work which takes Calvino's landscapes and ideas as its cornerstones and builds its own rather dazzling musical skyline on them. The piece, a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in Music, was performed in L.A.'s Union Station, and is now available for CD a... Read more of this blog post »

Tim made a comment on his review of The Age of Light
The Age of Light by Whitney Scharer
" Yes, I haven't even gotten a chance to follow up and explore her photography, but I surely will. "
More of Tim's books…
“My epiphany: Printed words were the shadows of referents. Things: rock, sand, onion. Ideas: carpool, justice, maximization, irrevocability. Paragraphs were composite shadows of the scenarios and subjects they captured: the overwhelming richness and messiness of the world distilled to bare, chiaroscuroed necessity.”
Tim Horvath, Understories

“Was it possible that perhaps the most plausible explanation was being offered by someone who anyone with an ounce of sanity would have long ago consigned to the realm of the insane?”
Tim Horvath

“It is not what the shadow tells us about the figure but about the ground that ultimately matters.”
Tim Horvath, Understories

Rebecca Gransden Hello Tim. Thank you for the friend request. Looking forward to some serious and not so serious book chat :)


Alexandra Grabbe Hi, Tim. I just posted a review of Snow in May. I saw it was on your to-read list. I will be interested to hear your opinion of the book. Also, I wanted to alert you to a giveaway of five copies of my dad's memoir, Emigre, 95 years in the Life of a Russian Count, which I edited and self-published. Alexandra

Shayan Foroozesh Thank you for accepting me :) Good to have you as my GR friend. I loved your essay about Literary Darwinism. it's in my thesis bibliography.

Erwin Thank you, Tim, for the friend invite! Looking forward to your updates and bookdiscussions.

JK Thanks for the request. Ya know, I never noticed the inadvertent juxtaposition of mmy likes. :D


message 16: by Stephen

Stephen P I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your book, Circulation (In our wonderful discussion about Perfume, you never mentioned you wrote. I had to go to your home page to discover this and, Circulation). If your interested I did a GR review recently. I'll be ordering Understories next. I hope that along with reading you are finding time to write and that a new work will be coming out soon.

Richard Tim, I am honored by the friend request. I look forward to future exchanges.

L Thanks, Leola! You will lose a bit more sanity before closing the final pages of Ulysses; you are likely to lose your breath, guaranteed to lose punctuation, and you might lose some sleep. And then there's always Finnegans Wake for after your sanity has come back and scabbed over and you're ready to lose it again. Great to connect with you!

Haha, sounds wonderful! Indeed, the loss of punctuation has already set in -- I fear I've been ruined for life. May you have a lovely day and thank you for brightening my own. :)

Thanks so much, Stephen. I'm pretty sure you do all of the above, too, officially or unofficially (in terms of the teaching), so the anticipation is mutual.

Hi, Sarah, I've made the great journey north to Stratham, inching toward Portsmouth like some receding glacier. You've got some of my favorite authors on your wishlist (Josh Cohen, Amber Sparks, Renata Adler)--I hope some of those get fulfilled!


message 6: by Kris

Kris Tim, thank you so much for your very kind friend request. I'm humbled to receive it, and delighted to accept it. I'm looking forward to many stimulating discussions with you on GR.


Madeleine Oh, goodness, how could I refuse such a kind friend request? Thanks so much for sending such warmth my way -- I am ALWAYS thrilled to make the acquaintance of folks who can say that a Calvino novel is one of their favorites. I am very much looking forward to getting to know you and your taste in books!

Helen Hello! Thank you for the invitation!

Garima Hi Tim. Thanks for the friend invite and liking my review too. I'm sure we'll have a lot of book discussions in future.


Nilesh Kashyap Hi Tim! Thanks for looking me up and also thanks for telling me about two books that I had never heard about, but they do sound awesome from the reviews I read, I may give them a try someday.


message 1: by Aloha

Aloha Hi, Tim. Thank you for the invite. Yes, it's rewarding to survive GEB and to tell the tale! One of the best book I've read!
