November Literary Review newsletter

…in lieu of the long overdue local catch-up. On the upside, #NMpoets, I've been laboring in the social media vineyards - Groves of Academe Division -  on behalf of its adjunct labor force, which includes a number of NM poets teaching in NM universities and community colleges. See for yourself: check out New Faculty Majority on Facebook. I'll try to get to sharing local NM poetry news and announcements on Facebook today but should also warn you that I set aside Novembers for NaNoWriMo so may be short on time for both groups.

'What a set! what a world!' - November newsletter
Your monthly update on Literary Review. For people who devour books.

Literary Review presents some of the highlights from the recent November issue...

'What a set! What a world!'
John Polidori died by his own hand a disappointed man, seeing his novella, The Vampyre, published under the name of his friend Lord Byron. Seamus Perry reveals yet more love and anguish in the poet's coterie.
Snakes in the Jungle
Did Ciro Bustos betray Che Guevara? John Sweeney reads Bustos's defence and finds in his memoir 'real passion about what it was to be a child of the revolution in South America'.
Bomb Voyage
Matthew Green praises a nuclear travelogue that spans the uranium mines of the Congo, the deserts of New Mexico and the Fukushima disaster.
Housewives & Heroines
Anne Sebba discovers that – in archaeology, architecture, the law and numerous other fields – women of the 1950s escaped the home to flourish in their professional lives.
In Bed with François
Was Mitterrand a resister or collaborator? Left-wing or right-wing? A man of principle or an operator? Robert Gildea peels back the mask.
Looking for Darwish
Maya Jaggi reports from Jerusalem and meets the poetic heirs of Mahmoud Darwish, hearing of the difficulties Palestinian writers have in making their voices heard.
A Late Flowering
Married to a drunk, disgraced barrister, left homeless when her houseboat sunk, Penelope Fitzgerald's path to literary acclaim did not run smooth. Mark Bostridge weighs up her legacy
Whither Whiteblade?
Oswald of Northumbria became one of the first English martyrs when slain by the pagan King Penda of Mercia in 642. Philip Parker throws light on a religious pioneer of the dark ages.
Michael Arditti on David Leavitt's urbane and satisfying The Two Hotel Francforts
Simon Hammond on three Irish debuts, including Eimear McBride's stunning A Girl is a Half-formed Thing
