First Lines: W. Somerset Maugham - The Razor's Edge

I have never begun a novel with more misgiving.

I thought this new band sounded interesting: the band’s brooding sound bears the dark-eyed influences of Siouxsie Sioux and Miranda Sex Garden

Sophie Holmes

New Stuff: Black Tambourine

A new discovery to me: 'wonderful walls of distortion and melody'

New York

Kylie Bax

First Lines: Gilbert Sorrentino - Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things

What if this young woman, who writes such bad poems, in competition with her husband, whose poems are equally bad, should stretch her remarkably long and well-made legs out before you, so that her skirt slips up to the tops of her stockings?

Daga Ziober

The Door in the Floor (2004)

A writer's young assistant becomes both pawn and catalyst in his boss's disintegrating household.

A marriage drama with some great performances, but a predictable plot.

Mayara Rubik Marchi

Pitch Black (2000)

A group of marooned space travelers struggle for survival on a seemingly lifeless sun-scorched world.

Above-average sci-fi thriller with some atmospheric visuals.
