The Book of Fame ~ Lloyd Jones

‘There was no holy waterNo one spoke of fameThere were no reliable worksWe were left to figure out things for ourselves’ Having mentioned it I've been down to the basement to find this post from 2015 about The Book of Fame by Lloyd Jones. Rugby was very much on our minds back then. On the 8th August 1905 twenty-seven men boarded the SS Rimutaka in New Zealand bound for England and a punishing series of more than forty rugby matches against the home nations; small clubs, larger clubs, the E...

‘Poor Things’ Will Reunite Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone For a Female Frankenstein Story

The Favourite team of Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone are reuniting for Poor Things, based on the book by Alasdair Gray. The novel is a send-up of Victorian literature and a re-imagining of Frankenstein, in which the monster has been replaced with “Bella Baxter – a beautiful young erotomaniac brought back to life with the brain of an infant.” And you have to admit, that already sounds like a Yorgos Lanthimos movie. The news of Poor Things comes to us from Production Weekly (by way of The Fil...

The Provinces and How They Got That Way.

A year ago I quoted from an article by Anne Lounsbery about the odd uniformity of “the provinces” (provintsiia) in Russian literature; now that I am enthusiastically reading her book Life Is Elsewhere: Symbolic Geography in the Russian Provinces, 1800–1917 I want to quote the start of chapter 3, “Inventing Provincial Backwardness, or ‘Everything is Barbarous and Horrid’ (Herzen, Sollogub, and Others)” (pp. 54ff.), which explains the origin of that view: “The provincial ball has been described a ...

In praise of nudity: The nudist beaches of Central and Eastern Europe

They lie on towels, blankets and mattresses, without wind screens, but under umbrellas. Deep in thought, they stand up to their knees in the water. Some build sandcastles and collect shells. Others play cards, backgammon, volleyball or badminton. Some are reading. They rub themselves with oils and are damp from the water or bone dry from the sun. The old and middle-aged, young people and children. They nibble on sunflower seeds, slice up watermelon and drink beer. They don't look at each other. ...

"Her father was an immigrant from Odessa, her mother was born four months after her family arrived from Poland. Her mother later worked as a bookkeeper in Brooklyn."

"Ruth used to ask, 'What is the difference between a bookkeeper in Brooklyn and a Supreme Court Justice?' Her answer, one generation. It has been said that Ruth wanted to be an opera virtuoso, but became a rockstar instead.... She was not an opera star, but she found her stage right behind me in our courtroom...."From "John Roberts Memorial Speech for Ruth Bader Ginsburg Transcript September 23."

Audio Series: Suspended Heart

  Our   audio series "The Authors Read. We Listen."  was originally hatched in a NYC club during BEA back in 2012.

In light of all the social distancing and recommended reduction to group events, we're happy to help support those who have recently published, or will soon be publishing, a book.

Sumptuously Soft French Dish Towels That Double as Aprons

Vacations are for taking a break from work, but when our editors travel on holiday, work (discovering fledgling creative talent, spotting new wares, finding design inspiration) tends to follow them. Case in point: Margot’s grand tour of Europe last year recently yielded a flurry of story ideas (see her posts on exquisitely wrapped fabric hangers and handwoven, plant-dyed rugs). And here’s another one: While visiting a store in Madrid, Do Design, she spied irresistibly soft kitchen linens by Fren...

Jabotinsky’s Five.

I’ve been trying for a couple of days now to come up with some sort of focused approach to a post on Vladimir Jabotinsky’s novel Пятеро (The Five; see this post), but between the heat and the humidity and the general coronafog (does anybody really know what time it is?) my brain is refusing to enter focus mode, so I’m just going to type away and see what I wind up saying. A minor point, but I care about these things and I don’t want to forget to mention it: in that earlier post I dated it to 193...

The Linguistics of Odessa.

My Odessa reading program continues with Jabotinsky’s novel Пятеро (The Five, published in 1936 like the Katayev novel I wrote about here), which has already made me unreasonably happy. The narrator has gone down to the sea and met a young man named Seryozha, who takes him under his wing and fixes the broken oarlocks on his boat; Seryozha asks who’s been hired to watch the boat, and when told it was Chubchik, says (you can read the Russian here, starting with “— Оттого и беспорядок, Чубчик!

Katayev’s White Sail.

I’ve finished Valentin Katayev’s Белеет парус одинокий [A White Sail Gleams; I’ve just discovered there’s a full Soviet translation from 1954 here], and how one sees the novel depends to a great degree on the angle from which one observes it. From one point of view, it’s a Boy’s Own adventure novel in which Petya and Gavrik are the Tom and Huck of 1905 Odessa, getting into scrapes and fooling parents and police alike. That element didn’t excite me, and if that were all there had been I probabl...

A Reading in Odessa.

I’ve gotten to the part in Трава забвеня (The Grass of Oblivion) where Kataev describes a funny and awful evening during Bunin’s time in Odessa (1918-20). His friends decided to help him financially by arranging a public reading of his new story «Сны Чанга» (The Dreams of Chang — Chang is a dog remembering the life of his master). Bunin kept refusing, saying nobody would be interested, nobody knew him, nobody would show up, and nobody would want to spend an evening listening to a single story;...

Discovering Real Poetry.

I’ve started Valentin Kataev’s 1967 memoir Трава забвеня (translated by Robert Daglish as The Holy Well) and have already fallen in love with it. He starts off describing a nervous visit to Ivan Bunin sometime in the early 1910s accompanied by a high-school classmate, each of them with poems they want the great man to look at (and hopefully praise). Then he backs up to explain how he came to know about Bunin. He grew up in Odessa as a not particularly literary adolescent, but like every lite...
