Hello all "LG" members! To try to spur us all on to do a bit more on our LG site, I thought I'd write each of you a note.
I have a renewed interest in LG due to the horrid (13degrees) weather here. I was bored & perused my lost generation books where I came upon "Found Meals of the Lost Generation", by Suzanne Rodriguez-Hunter. When I purchased the book, I must admit I looked at the recipes & ignored the accompanying text. In reading it through, I am finding it a delight. Neat little thumbnail sketches of the time with recipes for foods they served/may have served in Paris. The book is dotted with post-its & my Amazon cart has some new things to read, e.g., "Nightwood" by Djuna Barnes.
Am looking forward to some news from our members as to what new relevant books you've read or really, anything to do with the time. Thanks, Judie
OK I gave in. This is addictive, and probably better for keeping records than my LJ profile!

I recently joined the All Books Africa Group. As a publisher who has just released a novel about the Angolan Civil War, I thought it might be worth bringing to your attention. Ondjaki's Good morning Comrades has just been released (indeed, i'm not sure amazon has changed it status yet). Ondjaki is a Lusophone writer of international reputation, and our edition of Good morning Comrades introduces him to an English speaking audience for the first time. It will not be the last: Aflame Books in the UK is set to release his fable The Whistler, and I know New Directions is also looking at publishing something by him soon. We expect he will become one of the most celebrated African novelists of his generation.

Anyway, if you would like further information on Comrades, you can chcekc out our website at It is also available online on amazon and elsewhere, and available through any good bookstore.

Thansk for your time, and I do hope that this was not too intrusive. (We're a small literary press based in Canada, and we're just trying to do whatever we can to let potential readers know about the book.

Best wishes,

Dan Wells
Middle-Eastern feminism is a topic into which I wish to delve. Cool library *thumbs up*
You have a fascinating mix of books and I've added you to my list of interesting libraries! Cheers, Laura
Hah! I love how I can tell this is you and not someone else co-opting your username just by looking at the handful of random books in the sidebar. :D
