    Book review: Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch

    Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch er en digtsamling fra forlaget Anarki, og Lewkovitchs tredje udgivelse. Det er en ganske lille digtsamling, med sammenhængskraft fra hjertet og mere specifikt hovedpulsåren (aorta). Jeg har modtaget et anmeldereksemplar af forlaget Anarki. Aorta – digtsamling Denne lille digtsamling er for det første smukt og gennemført lavet som bog. Det er en lille paperback i mørk grå, med sort tekst og en pulserende rød hovedpulsåre på forsiden. De første sider er mørkerøde og så mere dybrøde. Nøjagtig ligesom blod i forskellige nuancer. Det er altså ret gennemtænkt. Derudover er der faktisk ikke ret meget af det klassiske fyld i bogen. Vi hopper…

    Book review: The Theater and its double

    Book review of The Theater and its double “The Theatre and its double” by Antonin Artaud is a collection of letters and manifests, in the book I’ve got.

It should be read again and again …. Artaud oozed magical desires. He was the metaphysician of the theater. – Jean-Louis Barrault. A collection…

    Book review: Kafka on the shore

    Book review of Kafka on the Shore This is my book review of Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. I have read “Hardboiled wonderland and the end of the world” before, as my first Murakami book.

The ageing Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside…

    What I read in May 2020

    What I read in May 2020 It’s time to find out what I read in May 2020. Let’s wrap up the month and see what books I read, liked, didn’t like and more. I’ll also dive into a few readathons I’ve participated in. Maybe I made progress on my reading challenges in May 2020? First of all, I just want to stress the fact that I don’t see reading as a competition and I do have months where I don’t read anything, and other times where I read a lot of books. It all depends on my mood, my sparetime and whatever else is going on.  So please, don’t feel…
