Richard Risemberg was dragged to Los Angeles as a child, and has been working there in a number of vernacular occupations since his teens while writing poetry, articles, essays, and fiction, editing online 'zines, sneaking around with a camera trying to steal people's souls, and making a general nuisance of himself, which is his forte. He's survived long enough to become either a respected elder or a tedious old fart, depending on your point of view, and is still at it. It hasn't been easy for any of us.

Well, there's one I am constrained from discussing, so I'll have to leave you all in wonder....

One that I could use for a book, though, is the story of an uncle in Argentina who had a branch of his business in Peru. He'd spend alternating months in each country. After he died, it came to light that he also had a wife and family in each country. In the space of a week we gained dozens of previously unknown relatives. He is far from the most eccentric member of our family, but his is the story best suited to a novel of the many I have heard so far. No murder involved, but plenty of complication. And, as the title of my most recent book implies, I have an interest in exploring "Family Ties"! (See https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LT5OJE2#...)(less)

"Neon in Daylight" impression

Neon in Daylight Neon in Daylight by Hermione Hoby

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I'm of two minds about this book. I enjoyed it well enough that I am glad I read it, and I do recommend it. At the same time, it irritated me by embodying so many clichés of new writing, that is, of work written by Millennials and their predecessors. The detached tone that i call "third person indifferent, a sort of hipsterized Hemingway; Read more of this blog post »
