‘His work on philosophy, literature and psychoanalysis was described by Jacques Derrida as “superbe”.’

‘A woman’s struggle to keep love alive, as her husband, John Clare, descends into madness.’

‘Alan Bennett meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer.’

‘Ben Dolnick is 23 and lives in New York. Ben’s uncle, Arthur Golden, is the author of Memoirs of a Geisha.’

    “Seriously playful…it is a smile-shaped rip in the Turin Shroud of neo-absurdism.” blurb for SOUTHAMPTON DADA by Nick Rogers (CANT BOOKS published July 6th 2009) http://www.cantbooks.co.uk/

    I was delighted, although not particularly surprised, to learn that David Grene wrote his memoir Of Farming and Classics ‘before his death.’

    The Borchester Echo meets Marxism Today, Southampton Dada is a comic gem. Get it online from Cant Books before it sells out!
