‘I am impressed by the diversity and range of the learning Ross Hamilton applies to a difficult and varied topic, largely invented by himself.’

‘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.’

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