A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 7/26/18 9:29am Daybreak the Teacher:

@Trouble - college essay advice: you can’t wait until you’re so frustrated with your kid that you explode and demand: do it now! Since it is the summer, structure free / school is out time, you need to both agree to put down your phones for 15 to come up with a short written agreement. X much done by Y point. Repeat until done. Having an written down can be a huge help, but only if you do it together. You can set the terms together (consequences for failure to meet deadlines) so that you both know what the terms are and have agreed. Plus the bonus for your kid is that agreement time isn’t start the essay NOW time. It give them space to shift back into that mode.

Hope this helps!

Hi,
I am reading The Pumpkin Eaters by Penelope Mortimer. She is crazy great. Also I am sure you must know the work of Kate Chopin. I did not until recently

Browsing Henry Beston excerpts. But I need a permanent written agreement to devote read time!

I am reading A Simple Story by Leila Gierriero, a non-fiction about an Argentinian dance competition, on my phone; Hungry Ghosts by Australian author Susan Johnson in paperback; and an enormous biography of Jean Cocteau in hardback. Managing about 10 pages a night of that one – it's a long-term project.

Loved "Possession" by AS Byatt. Also "The Line of Beauty" by Alan Hollinghurst

I've been listening to the audiobook of Charles Stross's "Atrocity Archives." Oddly I've read later books in this series but never this one, which is the first (but most are stand-alones anyway). It's actually two novellas. In the first, British counter-occult bureaucrats have to stop "reality incursions" from evil extra-dimensional critters and/or undead Nazis that want to eat our brains... while squabbling over timesheets and missing overtime paperwork.

I can recommend two authors I recently discovered that I like, though—Doris Grumbach and A.L. Kennedy

I just read Geek Love by Katherine Dunn for the first time a few years ago, and loved it-- I had avoided it for years because I assumed it was about the OTHER definition of "geek."

Wow, haven't heard this version, groovy! - Currently getting to the end of The White Album by Joan Didion, some really great essays, some which just kind of passed me by. Ordered 10 new novels over the weekend, so spoilt for choice a s to whats next!

Reading "Salvage the Bones" by Jessmyn Ward; it's off to a good start!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/26/18 11:32am Passaic River Blues:

@Adrian: is that the Claude Arnaud biography you're talking about it? How is it so far? I almost bought Steigmuller's at a library book sale but I knew it'd probably be two decades before I got to it. I never really thought about Cocteau that much until I read "The Difficulty of Being" and reevaluated.

@Ben Abs: One of the best, although all Didion is good Didion, even the bad.

Is the RadioRethink link for the 128k live stream dumping me to the 32k version instead? The sound quality isn't so hot today. (The 128k AAC link on this page sounds great tho'.)
  Thu. 7/26/18 11:34am Peter in SEA:

Also "Known and Strange Things' by Teju Cole. Excellent essays on literature, visual, cultural.

@Passaic Yes, it is the Arnaud biog. I'm 350 pages in and Radiguet's just died. So it's thorough, I'll give it that…

I also recently read the Françoise Hardy autobiog and discovered that Serge Gainsbourg's dog died of cirrhosis through licking the bottom of her master's unfinished glasses of booze :-(

@Adrian: hahaha Damn, Radiguet dead at page 350? It'll be page 950 before you start reading about those movies in the 50s.

@Holland Oats: That was a good one. Seth Hettena's "Trump/Russia" and Luke Harding's "Collusion" also excellent reads on the subject.
