Review: Things The Grandchildren Should Know By Mark Oliver Everett
Well, I believe the matter would be easier if there weren't so many Ted talks, or whatever their name is. To give you another example, without gathering. Without the melancholy broadcasts of television or radio. Those are the future fortune-tellers. It seems that all of them are professors of something. What about those who use the Photoshop slogans to make a book? Or something that looks like one? You understand me, people like this. Charlatans. They are all enslaved by many sinister ores, ennes and may also require a pill to get to sleep. They are light beings, having read ...

Review: The Sin Eater By Megan Campisi
Although The Eater of Sin sounds very intriguing, what really caught my eye was the fact that it was inspired by a real event. In some parts of Great Britain, there was a tradition of eating bread alongside the coffins and absolving the dead. It is known only that they were socially excluded. Megan Campisi was able to concoct The Sin Eater from this information. He also includes a list at the beginning of his book that lists the sins and the foods that must be consumed to make them forget. These foods are the names of the chapters. This ...

Review: Orfeo by Richard Powers
Although I haven't started counting how many there are, it would make for a wonderful (for its thickness) musical dictionary. This, in fact, is what makes it a great (damn, amazing!) book. It means almost everything to me. It's not about telling something. You know what I mean? We have discussed this topic many times before. If I'm still having trouble explaining myself, please do this short exercise: Add to the dilatory melody, the dissonant parallel intervals, and the stretti, then add the forte intensity, the legato, and the arpeggios to make the total number of musical concepts. It is ...

Review : The Song Of The Silent Snow By Hubert Selby Jr.
Hubert Selby Jr., an American writer, did not forgive God for abandoning his people. Maybe that's why, as he wrote one morning in a very furious Psalm he understood better the demons in his country. They could have tails or horns, but they were trapped and tormented by an inner voice, which was a reflection their world. A world that humiliated and tore their souls and joy to pieces with every passing day. Maybe that is why he was so concerned about "comforting his friends", with helping them "find all their detached, tortured" selfs", washing their wounds on their knees, ...
