The Story of Lucy Gault
by William Trevor


The Iron Grail, by Robert Holdstock—
....where Holdstock scores best is in stressing not Merlin's Disneyesque humanity but his very otherness. This Merlin stands apart from the brief, furious lives of those around him: a shabby figure of power as old as the local gods and undoubtedly more terrifying, if only he'd stop hoarding his magic like a miser. This is fantasy at its most intelligent and most demanding.

    Miltos Manetas purchased his first laptop computer not because he wanted to send e-mails, edit images, or build spreadsheets, but because he thought it was cool that this object produced light from inside; like an expensive, luminous clam.

    I like Neil Young. I like David Bowie. I like Ella Fitzgerald. I like the Mamas and the Papas. I like Yoko Ono. I like Oliver Sacks. I like Milan Kundera. I like Billie Holiday. I like the Marianne Faithful autobiography. I like Comme des Garcon. I like Martin Margiela. I like Costume Nationale shoes. I like Picasso. I like J.D. Sallinger. I like toast. I like Mojitos. I like Irving Penn. Chanel make good eyeshadow. Yves Saint Laurent make good underwear. I like Cuban cigars but they're no good for my voice.

    Most of the musicians who really blow me away are either dead or over 50. The first time music really spoke to me was when I first heard The Smiths when I was 12. I get my kicks from other things. Inspiration comes from weather, the sky, clouds, a beautiful piece of fabric, a texture, the way light will catch someone's face and make them look different for a second.

    North Carolina Museum of Art: Sinners and Saints Darkness and Light

    Honthorst has these hands? all the time these hands in the same gesture, and it's at odds a little with the narrative of the picture, an action w/out precedent or antecedent, w/out flow, it's semiotic, this one picture is so close to the playing card tradition it's not even subtle, and then you start to notice, over and over, these hands
