First Lines: Janet Frame - Towards Another Summer


When she came to this country her body had stopped growing, her bones had accepted enough Antipeodian deposit to last until her death, her hair that once flamed ginger in the southern sun was fading and dust-coloured in the new hemisphere, and she was thirty, unmarried except for a few adulterous months with an American writer (self-styled) who woke in the morning, said
- I write best on an empty stomach,
pulled a small piece of paper from his tweed coat hanging on the end of the double bed, and wrote one line.

First Lines: Allen Ginsberg - Howl


(ph: Essie Snell)

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,

dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,

angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night,

The King (2005)


A troubled man, recently discharged from the Navy, goes to Corpus Christi, Texas, in search of the father he's never met.

Subtly staged familial drama cleverly escalating it to semi-mythological dimensions.

Michelle Behennah


Night Passage (1957)



The workers on the railroad haven't been paid in months, because a gang has been robbing their wages...

Although barely a standard Western, the story wins alone by James Stewart's participation.

Kendall Jenner


Backlash (1956)


A man seeks a survivor of the Apache ambush his father died in.

Standard and solid Western, but otherwise not quite remarkable.

Chantal Jones


New Stuff: Making Noise


 The ultimate book on noise, 900 pages, and 379 pages of endnotes, only available online...

Mackenzie Hamilton

Into the Abyss (2011)


Conversations with death row inmate Michael Perry and those affected by his crime serve as an examination of why people - and the state - kill.

Gripping and in-depth study that manages to analyze this diificult issue without bias.

Audrey Marnay


ph: Jean-Baptiste Mondino

New Stuff: The Ten-Cent Plague


Finally a book about this era in the history of comics which I always wanted to know more about.

Caprice Bourret


Herr Ober! (1992)


Together with his posh, suppressive wife a man is managing a hotel, but is more interested in writing poetry.

This vehicle for (and by) the  popular Bavarian humorist Gerhard Polt is entertaining, but far less ingenious and funny than his more famous short sketches.
