Ian "Marvin" Graye and 47 other people liked William1's review of A Maggot:
A Maggot by John Fowles
"Dazzling. Stunning. The best I've read of him.
On second reading, the novel holds up remarkably well. It seems at first a study in the perpetuation of literary suspense. The book jumps between third-person narration; a kind of mock-legal deposition..." Read more of this review »

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick
"Dit was niet mijn eerste 'What if...'-roman, maar het was sowieso mijn meest beklijvende.
Het duurde een tijdje vooraleer ik overweg kon met het gebrek aan actie en vrede kon nemen met het gegeven dat elke verhaallijn vooral de nadruk legt op het g..." Read more of this review »
Alone in Berlin by Hans Fallada
"Wat een indrukwekkend boek. Zou verplicht moeten zijn. Geen grote woorden, heel toegankelijk...
Een eenvoudig verhaal dient als kapstok om af te zakken in de geest van de 'gewone Duitser' in tijden van de tweede wereldoorlog. Corruptie, angst, armo..." Read more of this review »
Brief aan de huichelaars die het racisme voeden by Charb
"Bij momenten wat drammerig, bij momenten wat kortzichtig en eenvoudig te ontkrachten, bij momenten heel gevat de vinger op een wonde leggend in een sarcastische stijl die ik niet gewend ben... maar vooral, in retrospect, heel spijtig dat het nooit..." Read more of this review »

Thanks, BO/Marita. You gotta laugh at some of this cruft.

Description: Baby baby, where did our love go? Much of the prose and poetry in this folder is an experiment in a topic about impossible love or alien love or unrequited love. If they start to work for me, I might try to develop them into a more ambitious idea. I've tried to dig into 35 years of relationships for what little inspiration I could glean. I hope nobody takes offence at them. Love and lust manifest themselves in many ways, some of them impossible, improbable, impractical, inconvenient or just plain unexpected.
