I forgot to mention I grew up in New Kensington, out side of Pittsburgh.
Hello George: Your comment about style caught my eye. In the past I have been in many writers groups. All have had, what I see as not creative critique, beyond, what i feel, is helpful to the writer. Like you I feel we have a style, unless we let someone change that through some all-knowing advice. I am starting a writers group for short fiction writers. I have sat through some terribly long readings that said nothing.
I love writing fiction, although I also write from my life, which has been a long series of adventures. When I tell one of my true tales, people always tell me i should write about them.(I am, but I enjoy fiction. I have many posted on my site at bogwig.com)
I just published an illustrated children's Christmas story from a play I wrote in 1976. I would like to send you a copy. Contact me with a mailing address. email@example.com.
I loved the photos in this book. Well done. I also love the new movie on Clemente "Baseball's Last Hero: 21 Clemente Stories" and was amazed how the film's images of the actors captured many of the same stylistic images of the photos, particularly the love between Roberto and Vera. I think both projects were guided divinely. I bought the movie and book on Amazon and plan to order multiple copies of both for Christmas gifts to share his legacy.
A wonderful lady I admire her.
Your review is as penetrating as the depth and grandeur of Robinson's offering in " Orange Fire ".
There is a new short story collection called Eligible Atrocities. It is full of wit and satire and worth checking out.
If the first European born settlers got there in 1803 chances are African folks were there at least that long ago.
This is great! Very inspiring stuff. I am glad to see that someone is addressing the housing crisis in a positive and practical manner.
Fooled me. Was looking to read about squatters vs jerks, as in weightlifting's clean and jerk and /or dead lift.
This really is such a good book! The author should be made an honorary personal injury lawyer in homewood for his work!
Hey Fred - thanks for the review. What an interesting subject. Had to look up the word androgyny. I had a lesbian friend at school who was a butch and her name could also denote either sex. It took me a good week to figure out whether she was man or woman - she kept mentioning her wife and it kind of threw me off. It's also embarrassing when you say "Sir" to a woman on the phone who has a deep voice. Oops. Anyway, it really does sound like interesting reading.
My mom and I loved Murphy's! ;D What great memories! I'll definitely check out this book!:)
Is there no end to the collusion of this rag and the teacher/students of a certain school? As why else would this entry of a chatbook make a dent in the City Paper's readership.
Thanks Catherine! What a great Article!
I really appreciate the Pittsburgh City Paper featuring Amidst Traffic!
Thanks so much!
I like :)
That was exactly my experience growing up in Laurelton, in southeast Queens (NY). Within six months, a year at the most, the town went from an ethnic mix to 90 plus percent African-American. Everyone just fled. The culprits, along with pure racism, were the same as described here.
Look forward to reading this from an excellent press
Thanks Rick! This piece reads wonderfully!
