Themes that Shelly intertwined into her original novel, often considered to be one of the first examples of science Fiction. (more...)

Khanh Ha Releases 2nd Novel, THE DEMON WHO PEDDLED LONGINGKhanh Ha Releases 2nd Novel, THE DEMON WHO PEDDLED LONGING
by BWW News Desk - Nov 19, 2014

Reviews: 'The Demon Who Peddled Longing takes you on the quest of an insular boy - a quest to avenge his cousin's murder and to win the heart of a fickle woman. His deliverance lies not in the consummation of these goals but in the dignity with which he pursues them. As poetic as Faulkner, as stark as Cormac McCarthy, The Demon Who Peddled Longing is an absorbing read.' -James Hanna, The Sand Hill Review 'Compelling and beautifully written ... a richly accomplished story set in a land still wounded by war.' -Stephen Evans, author of The Marriage of True Minds 'An unnamed protagonist journeys through a Faulknerian dreamscape where redemption arises out of violence and beauty blossoms from the mire of loss. A rare achievement through a mesmerizing rhythm of language. That this novel is an artistic triumph is an understatement.' -John M. Gist, Red Savina Review About The Author Khanh Ha is the author of Flesh (2012, Black Heron Press).

It is all about how an author carefully and purposely beckons each word to each page until those words pull together into a magnificent creation having a life of its own. The book I am reviewing,All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, is one such masterful creation. Don't wait for the paperback, don't wait for the movie, buy the book, now. Buy it as a gift, buy it for yourself, insist that your book club adds it to the list of must reads. Read it when you have the time to savor each and every word that has been so carefully placed. This book puts to shame many of the other books I have read this year. The characters, the story line, the settings, the time periods, the premise and purpose that stand behind the book are knitted together flawlessly, satisfying the reader completely.

To write a play in which the first scene was written by a character in the second scene, Stoppard's protaganist would necessarily have to be a playwright, a fact that left Stoppard in a state of dread. 'I didn't want to write a play about a playwright. That seemed to be the end of the rope: you write a play about someone who's trying to write a play.' (more...)

BWW Reviews: Rebeck Loses Some Edge but the Cast Does Not in SEMINAR at FPCTBWW Reviews: Rebeck Loses Some Edge but the Cast Does Not in SEMINAR at FPCT
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Nov 16, 2014

Seminar starts out strong, ripping into the fabric of the business of teaching Fiction writing with knife-edged one-liners and characters you love to despise; then, as the plot, the characterizations, and the theme take a hairpin turn, it emerges that, no, the teaching is not a scam after all, the students' Fiction has possibilities, and the characters are not what we thought them. All Rebeck's hilarious savagery dissipates. Like Rebeck's writing and show-running for the first season of TV's Smash, it is a little too affectionate toward the business and the people in it to stay as scathing as Rebeck could and should keep it.

by Robert Barossi - Nov 16, 2014

Celebrities, famous folks and iconic figures are often enigmatic, especially those who lived in bygone days, long before the internet and social media. To most of us, they are a mystery. From their exalted and distant perches far above the ordinary, average citizen, they alter and impact our lives. At the same time, they remain shrouded in secrecy, their true lives unknown or unrevealed. This can be said of the famous figure at the center of Wilbury Group's second play fo the season, A Public Readng of an Unproduced Screenplay About the Death of Walt Disney. You may think you know something about the man behind the mouse, as he's sometimes referred. On the other hand, this play sets out to offer a different view, one that's decidedly darker. (more...)
