Reviews to Come - January 23, 2015

Every once in awhile I am going to share some of the reviews that I have coming up on this blog. This list comes from the books I am currently reading, and the books I plan on reading next. 86 more words

Book Cover

Sincerely, F. Scott Fitzgerald

I discovered this recently, it’s a BBC show from a couple of years back that isn’t currently available on iPlayer – but it IS on Youtube, though divided into four parts. 8 more words

Writing

Still not Charlie, and a note on terrorism

Regrettably, we have turned what should have been a discussion about terrorism, into a never-ending debate about freedom of expression. So while I hate to perpetuate it, another question comes to mind – how is it that freedom of expression is defended so clamorously in a country where people are legally forbidden to freely express their religion in public spaces and schools? 489 more words

This Side Of Paradise

Je ne suis pas Charlie

By defending our own cherished values in absolute terms, we reveal ourselves as fundamentally intolerant as those whom we criticise for defending theirs in absolute terms. 255 more words

This Side Of Paradise

A little note on racism

I don’t think anything annoys me as much as racism does. It alters me. It offends me. It scares me. It saddens me. And it amazes me. 186 more words

This Side Of Paradise

F. Scott Fitzgerald's Bildungsroman Days: The Ever-Worsening Woes of Amory, Basil and Josephine

I read these two books some time back, and have been holding off writing them up, because with someone like F. Scott Fitzgerald, really, what can one say that hasn’t already been said at great length and with much more scholarly emphasis. 943 more words
