- Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins
on April 04, 2011
Lalonde particularly has the gift of setting a scene which places you firmly in his universe, and from the first sentences, I was excited and pleased as the story moved along at a good clip and the writing was solid. I suppose I would describe it in a science fiction-y way, for I felt like I was suited up in space slowly observing the amazing orchestra of celestial bodies take place all around me.

- Song of Fire
on April 12, 2012
“Song of Fire” is a unique type of what is essentially a memoir and personal journey through the author’s experiences in which the love of music was dominant. It is written as a series of vignettes combining both words and musical tracks you can download to fully appreciate the depth of the author’s passion as scenes of his life are revealed as the motivation of composing a song. Even were a reader deaf, the descriptions of melody and sound might be quite provocative. Some of the titles include “Loma Prieta”, “Orpheus in the Underworld”, “Uncertainty” and “The Blue Grotto.”
The writing itself is expansive, and was refreshingly mixed with intelligent, well-written prose and vivid memories often combining contemporary observations and historical perspectives. The commentary was both informative and interesting discussing everything from Mayan cosmology or Darwinian theories; from cacao bean differences to the innate attraction to music most of us are born with. Definitely a work of creative non-fiction, whether you are a true lover of music and its history or not, “Song of Fire” was what I call a beautiful work, and revealed aspects of the author’s life. What I particularly appreciated also was the author’s presentation of the sometimes utter normalcy yet special dynamics that gay life and relationships can naturally have.
I absolutely have to say this is one of the best books of its type I’ve ever read in my life.
- Decades (English Edition)
on May 17, 2012
As I’ve experienced before, reading Anne de Gandt’s work, much is spoken, revealed and expressed in a dense, yet poetic way that left me as disquieted and thoughtful as the characters who share their emotions. There are times the narrative reads as literal, contemporary while at others it seems a dream, fantasy, and surreal, yet most of the time it is a mixture of all those things so that you wonder what is real and what imagined?
Elements of loneliness, pleasures that are simple and others complex, the desire for love and acceptance even after the knowledge and belief that one is soiled with past ugliness and indiscretion, the vulnerability that love inherently presents in us. Remembering this was a translated to English story from the author’s native French, reminds me of the different way people use a language, and is important for all readers to expect and understand. A native English speaker might have written the story differently, used other words in descriptions and ideas, but then it wouldn’t have the unique style that is Anne de Gandt.
I did find the paragraph structure a little problematic however; as many are extremely long and with the subject matter and imagery. I felt simplifying them would have been more effective, but wording and phrases were so often undeniably beautiful, “I don’t want to lose you. I want the disorder of happy horses to spread its euphoria through the infinite lips of joy, the bridges to keep swaying in the light, the sun to extend its rays of glory on our mingled skins.”
Lyrical, exotic, full of imagery that intrigues, Decades still conveys the dark poignancy of attraction, failure and fulfillment. ”
