By John Updike. 1992
This 4th collection of nonfictional prose is probably the richest yet. Over the years Updike has gallantly coped with many… "odd jobs", and these are some of them.

"Literally personal" contains an appendix of Updike's comments on his own works and endeavours. 1992.

By Bernard Werber. 2003
By Georges Amsellem. 2014
Georges Amsellem est né au Maroc. En 1968, il immigre à Montréal en passant par Israël et la France. Il… s'occupe d'écriture et de production de films.

By David Harsent. 2011
Poems in which the sureties of daylight become uncertain: dark, unsettling narratives about what wakes in us when we escape… our day-lit selves to visit a place where the dream-like and the nightmarish are never far apart. Culminates in 'Elsewhere', a noirish, labyrinthine quest-poem in which the protagonist is drawn ever onward through a series of encounters and reflections like an after-hours Orpheus, hard-bitten and harried by memory. Includes sex, strong language and violence. c2011.
By Robyn Sarah, Eric L Ormsby. 2015

By David Hepworth. 2016
1971 was defined by the musical arrival of such stars as David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Joni Mitchell.… The world would hear Don McLean's "American Pie," The Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar," The Who's "Baba O'Riley," Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," Rod Stewart's "Maggie May," Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," and more. Hepworth takes us on a tour of the major moments, events, and songs of this remarkable year, showing how musicians came together to form the perfect storm of rock and roll greatness, starting a musical era that would last longer than anyone predicted. 2016.
