“我的工作是不是永远会是使读者感到舒服” - 迈尔费舍尔讨论她与Tiah Beautement最新小说

发表在星期日时报

The Enumerations****
Máire Fisher, Umuzi, R280

勒梅尔费舍尔跟着她成功的处女作,伯兹艾, with the polishedThe Enumerations.

The story explores 17-year-old Noah Groome, who has obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and how he impacts his family, friends and the people he encounters in rehab after a school bully pushes him too far.

这种新颖的印象最深刻的方面是它的结构;各种故事情节的快节奏的拼贴。

These short, punchy sections show a kaleidoscope of the anxious minds of Noah and his family, echoing how it can feel to have OCD and live around it.

“My work wasn’t ever going to be to make the reader feel comfortable,” Fisher admits. But what an interesting ride she has created.

读者会欢呼诺亚,因为他们发展同情绝情,并乐于次要人物,包括美妙的和大胆的薇拉,谁诺亚符合康复。

However, the true heroine is Noah’s little sister Maddie, who is both a warrior and friend to her brother.

费舍尔解释说:“她知道她的工作是:是 - 并保持 - 一个快乐,阳光的孩子。这既是对年轻的肩膀上沉重的负担“。

书这种复杂性,无论是在题材和结构,需要与许多草稿一起重的研究:“第一人称,第三人称,过去时,现在时......可怜的老诺亚已经经历了那么多的化身,”费舍尔说。

然而,成品读取顺利,创造一种体验和同情不散。@ms_tiahmarie

Dan Wiley's亲密闪电is the first book-length study of the difficult and elusive poet, Sydney Clouts

About the book:

亲密闪电是谁,但仍频频anthologised诗人的第一本书长度的研究中,已经陷入了一些默默无闻。

然而,悉尼Clouts(1926年至1981年)被许多人在他的一生是他那一代中最强的诗人,虽然困难和难以捉摸的一个期间确认。

His Cape Town-inspired poetry fizzes with energy, an adventurous vivacity of image, a capacity for delight, an authentic humility, yet an authoritative sense of cerebral depth.

Reading Clouts attentively is still both a poetic delight and a heady intellectual challenge.

This study is biographically-framed, but is centrally an appreciation of the poetry: “The work is the thing!” Clouts himself urged.

The exploration is supported by interviews with family, friends and colleagues, but draws most importantly on archival sources: his letters, notebooks, and some 1700 pages of drafts that illuminate his methods.

它解压缩他的重要的主题,遵循了他的宽和不拘一格的阅读,探讨他的关于种族隔离时代的政治困扰,并提供了诗歌的哲学基础的解释。亲密闪电finally pays proper attention to a man who devoted himself unremittingly to poetry.

“It is politically and intellectually inappropriate to publish this book”

Listen: Vanessa Raphaely discusses加一on SmileFM's Tea Time with Bailey



‘Outside, in the road, behind what looks like some hastily erected barricades, I see a crowd.’

Television cameras. Lights. Paparazzi. Press photographers.

They’ve materialised out of nowhere. What looks like over a hundred locals and tourists are peering into every car leaving this area. Crowding against the car doors, pushing cameras up against the windows. Jostling. Screaming. Shouting. In all my anxiety, hard- nosed journalist that I’m not, during the hours spent shifting around in the plastic seat in the waiting room I had somehow not understood the enormity of this story.’

As deputy editor of the glamorous FILLE magazine in London, Lisa Lassiter had almost passed up the chance of a weekend on a billionaire’s yacht off the coast of Mykonos.

But her best friend Claudia Hemmingway, on her way to becoming one of the hottest movie stars on the planet, could be very persuasive when she wanted something.

不仅将他们乘坐私人飞机到达那里,她会告诉丽莎,他们也将得到擦肩的贵宾 - 并非最不重要的好莱坞著名电影制片人。这将是有趣的,阳光,香槟和开派对周末。它是所有这些事情。直到事实并非如此。

Lisa has spent ten years trying to get past that weekend. If she has learnt anything, it is that unfinished business and secrets always work their way to the surface. Moving on is one thing; forgetting is another, and forgiving … well, where to start?

Vanessa recently discussed her debut novel with Bailey Schneider. Listen to their conversation here!
