a book and a magazine

Those of you who enjoyed Aster Glenn Gray's Briarley but would have liked to have it in print form... now it's available! Behold its beautiful cover:



And here is a link, for purchasing ease.

And, in more news of the physical rather than the digital, the latest issue of Not One of Us is out. It's a great size for carrying with you and reading, quietly, wherever--no batteries needed. [personal profile] lesser_celery has relevant information here, and if you're not a subscriber and want to purchase an issue, leaving a note there would probably do the trick.

briarley sounds intriguing, does the rose play a larger role in the story, or was it simply a prop?

i began reading the passion of artemisia: a novel by susan vreeland today. i find literature both fulfilling and exhausting, especially the stuff of relationships

i would call it neo-classical.. it's about the female baroque painter artemisia gentileschi
she is quite the classicist.. i think even to rival raphael.

I think the rose is there as a link to the source story being retold--Beauty and the Beast.

When you say you find literature exhausting, is it the vicarious suffering and emotional ups and downs? ... That can be exhausting for me too--which is why in general I prefer things that are either neutral or uplifting rather than things that are grim.

I remember learning about Artemisia--and her painting of the cutting off of Holofernes's head!

LOL
yes, i don't enjoy living vicariously through others, as much as i just like observing what goes on around me.
yes, and what's with all of this historical beheading, john the baptist, holofernes, the french guillotine, the sword of islam, humans seem to have this macabre obsession with decapitation..
oy!
