The Strange Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst by Nicholas Tomalin
"Fascinating, border line 'page turner'! Incredible research and work went into this account of Donald Crowhurst's attempt at sailing around the world in the first single handed solo competition for the Golden Globe in 1968.

I am not a 'sailor' or eve" Read more of this review »

This is a very high-quality reproduction of the Voynich Manuscript, which goes so far as to depict the fold-out sheets on fold-outs of its own. The photography is excellent, and the manuscript is pictured in its actual size.

A beautiful little slice of life title about a postapocalyptic group of young people in space, navigating a new era of polyamory. The art is lovely, and I enjoyed the time I spent with the book.

It's very short, and not that much happens in it. I was

I was curious about this book, because it's one that's made available to prison libraries, and I wanted to see what advice it has for the folks during their reentry process.

The Strange Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst by Nicholas Tomalin
"Tomalin & Hall were both reporters who covered the story, and their book came out in 1970; give how close they were to the story, I think it's a very fair and even-handed account. They don't sympathize at all with Crowhurst's fraud, but they do empat" Read more of this review »

Philip Larkin
“The first day after a death, the new absence
Is always the same; we should be careful

Of each other, we should be kind
While there is still time.

From "The Mower”
Philip Larkin

T.S. Eliot
“The essential advantage for a poet is not to have a beautiful world with which to deal; it is to be able to see beneath both beauty and ugliness; to see the boredom, and the horror, and the glory.”
T.S. Eliot

Italo Calvino
“A conversation with Miss Zwida would lead me inevitably to talk about seashells, and I cannot decide what attitude to take, whether to pretend absolute ignorance or to call on a remote experience now vague; it is my relationship with my life, consisting of things never concluded and half erased, that the subject of seashells forces me to contemplate; hence the uneasiness that finally puts me to flight.”
Italo Calvino, If on a Winter's Night a Traveler

Franz Kafka
“Everything you say is boring and incomprehensible, but that alone doesn't make it true.”
Franz Kafka

Italo Calvino
“This is what I mean when I say I would like to swim against the stream of time: I would like to erase the consequences of certain events and restore an initial condition. But every moment of my life brings with it an accumulation of new facts, and each of these new facts bring with it consequences; so the more I seek to return to the zero moment from which I set out, the further I move away from it. . . .”
Italo Calvino, If on a Winter's Night a Traveler
