- Goodbye, Padania
on Feb. 17, 2013
Located in what is now northern Italy, Padania is a futuristic state not unlike East Berlin before the collapse of the Berlin Wall.
Hardened by the sexual abuse of a priest when she was young, Daria Rigeletti is comfortable in her role as an assassin. Killing means nothing to her, but nevertheless, she finds it more satisfying to help desperate people get across the electrified wall to the safety of Italy. The people she has helped form a resistance movement look to her to lead them in their fight to free Padania from the grip of the rebel government.
Lovers of speculative fiction will appreciate the fast moving plot, and will be intrigued by Daria's psychological dilemma.
I look forward to more of Daria's adventures.
- Houlihan's Wake
on Nov. 21, 2013
The sub title of this book 'and other fragments of Mexico' should alert readers that this is no ordinary story book. Immediately you are asking yourself why an Irish person's wake is linked to Mexico.
The book is a mixture of short stories and poetry that brilliantly paint a somewhat satirical picture of everyday life in the resort areas of Mexico.
The title story is about Houlihan, who has come to the fictional but typical Pacific Coast Mexican resort, Playa Chisme, to die "in a really beautiful place". He just has to figure out how to go about dying. When he tries to drown himself in the ocean, he is saved by the lifeguard, not because the lifeguard cares about saving him, but because Playa Chisme is going for a record. No drownings for an entire year. The celebratory party is the town's most anticipated event, and the locals will allow nothing to prevent it from taking place.
If you feel like reading something just for fun, this is it. A delightful read.
