Here’s our roundup of your feedback and pix from last week.

The festive season is almost out of the way. But not pretty. Benner notes:

Currently reading Beyond Black, Hilary Mantel. I chose it as my first ebook of the year only due to the outlet sentence: ‘Travelling: the dank, oily days after Christmas.’

Lovely. But that’s now not to say there isn’t nevertheless seasonal fun to be had: the Christmas diary entries of Samuel Pepys had been fun clivejw.

The 1667 entries couldn’t be greater Pepsyian in the event that they tried. After strolling approximately in various parts of London on Christmas Eve, and a go to to the Swan Inn in New Palace Yard, in the course of which he manages to “bear” the barmaid, he visits the middle of the night mass at the Queen’s Chapel… He complains of the group and says he became fearful of his pocket being picked. However, he soon overcomes this anxiousness by means of his normal diversion:

But right here I did make myself do la cosa with the aid of mere imagination, Mirando a la Jolie most and with my eyes open, which I in no way did before — and God forgive me for it, it is in the Chapel.

He enjoys the song of the chapel, but displays negatively on the ‘frivolous’ career and, simultaneously, the inattention of the ‘papists’ to it, as they count number their beads with one hand and “point and play and speak and make symptoms with the alternative” (is this much less pious than ejaculating after an erotic fable?) And then proceeds shortly to note how “prettily” the King’s mistress, Lady Castlemaine, appears in her nightclothes!

Elsewhere, Vieuxtemps determined to end the yr with Faulkner’s The Sound And The Fury:

And it gets better and stranger with each bypass. Score a ten out of 10 on the Southern Weirdo Scale. Recommended for those that like Southern Weirdo Lit.

Talking of weirdness, JamesLibTech has started on Jesse Ball’s upcoming novel Census:

It’s very unconventional and bizarre. I’m about a 3rd of the way in and I even have only the slightest of thoughts as to what’s taking place and where the story is going, but he’s an extraordinary author so I’m searching ahead to getting thru it.

William Gibson’s Neuromancer also seems unusual to resextensa:

I received’t lie, I’m locating it pretty disorienting. No doubt that’s a part of the factor, however, whilst I absolutely don’t want to be spoonfed there are moments that glide into such obscurity that it borders on outright incoherence. That apart, it’s bright and fascinating and I don’t have any plans to position it down, however, I know for certain I’ll want to examine it or 3 more times to absorb it well.

Back with realism, Tom Mooney has observed The Power Of The Dog by using Thomas Savage admirably “dark”:

Tells the tale of brothers who run a big Montana cattle ranch inside the Nineteen Twenties. They stay alone, other than the help, for years, jogging matters as they always have. Then one brother marries a nearby window and brings her onto the ranch along with her ‘sissy’ son, throwing the brothers’ courting into an unspoken disarray. The subtlety of the e-book took me quite via marvel as it shuns movement and plot in favor of realism and introspection because of the stop of the old west clashes with the advent of 20th-century life.

I didn’t quite love the ebook, however, more favorite it as a quiet, meticulous and noticeably literary work of art so one can live long in the memory.

Finally, one ultimate word on Christmas from PortlandRace:

week

 

I started last week analyzing the first section (‘Winter’) of Laurie Lee’s Village Christmas And Other Notes at the English Year. Growing up in a small Dorset village (before leaving for London), I relate so much to Lee’s depiction of rural lifestyles (and of Christmas) and his writing movements me in a way I discover uncommon in an author – to me it is quite beautiful. ‘Spring’ will follow in a month or …

That seems like an amazing promise to me.
