Nina and 3 other people liked Rod-Kelly Hines's review of Sacred Hunger:
Sacred Hunger by Barry Unsworth
"I teetered between 1 and 2 stars for this Booker Prize winner. The fact of its winning has no effect on my thinking that the book isn't all that great. The problem with so many works of historical fiction is the tendency of authors to show off the..." Read more of this review »
How to Write an Autobiographical Novel by Alexander Chee
"3.5 stars.

I absolutely loved some of the essays in this collection, and could have done without others. Most of the essays are long and meander; however, they typically come to an enlightening and moving conclusion. I also found myself inspired t..." Read more of this review »

Nina is finished with American Spy: I should've listened to my instinct. I thought *maybe* the author would surprise me. No.

I don't want to shit on a Black debut author so I'm going to hold off on publicly writing about this until I parse out the author's intentions.

Samuel Beckett
“The old endless chain of love, tolerance, indifference, aversion and disgust”
Samuel Beckett

Anne Carson
“What is an adjective? Nouns name the world. Verbs activate the names. Adjectives come from somewhere else. The word adjective (epitheton in Greek) is itself an adjective meaning 'placed on top', 'added', 'appended', 'foreign'. Adjectives seem fairly innocent additions, but look again. These small imported mechanisms are in charge of attaching everything in the world to its place in particularity. They are the latches of being.”
Anne Carson, Autobiography of Red

Octavia E. Butler
“In order to rise from its own ashes, a Phoenix first must burn.”
Octavia Butler

Gustavo  Perez Firmat
“The fact that I
am writing to you
in English
already falsifies what I
wanted to tell you.
My subject:
how to explain to you that I
don't belong to English
though I belong nowhere else”
Gustavo Perez Firmat, Bilingual Blues

“History buried becomes history repeated. A whole generation of Africans have been denied the truth of their own history, and so we do not really know ourselves, or our countries. Reclaiming those erased or hidden histories is vital political and creative work, and is central to my purpose as a writer.”
Shailja Patel, Migritude
