Endless Joke
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 32,890. Language: English. Published: October 22, 2012. Category: Essay » Literature
Endless Joke is a collection. It's funny. It's irritating. It's the book you never realised you needed. But you do. If you want to stay safe (and sane) between the twists and turns and death throes of the old publishing monster and the anarchic new killing fields of epublishing, this book will help in that regard. It's equal parts passion, humour, angst & a kind of bewildered, contemplative awe.
Dissolute Kinship: A 9/11 Road Trip
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 6,030. Language: English. Published: April 19, 2011. Category: Nonfiction » Travel » By region
(4.86 from 7 reviews)
A solo journey into trauma, spectral visions of an apocalypse, a moment when the sense of a world teetering on the edge of cataclysm or renewal was very real. And very fragile.

  • Forgiveness - An unexpected gift on Aug. 27, 2012

    "Forgiveness" is a dreamlike mystery that ends in an epiphany, and is told in a clear, easy style that barely hides the emotion seething just below the surface. This story feels both personal and quietly insistent on being told. What is remarkable, however, is that English is not Patricia Awapara's first language, which makes some of the awkward grammar and tense issues very forgivable in this instance. I would encourage Ms Awapara to continue her adventure in English, as she shows considerable talent even at this juncture. Because there is plenty of room for an upward trajectory I'll give this 3 and a half stars (rounded up as they don't allow half stars), but the star rating is unimportant in the bigger picture. This writer's growth in a language that isn't her native tongue will likely prove to be rewarding.
