in a while
something new and surprising
bursts forth . . .
The Reading Room/3:
Mediterranean: its many voices, mysteries and eternal paradoxes are
evoked in a section of Amos Ozs new new novel, The Same Sea
(to be published by Harcourt, Inc.) and in Jon Papernicks tale
of Jews and Arabs living in Israel today. The Spanish writer, Fanny
Rubio gives a freshly intense interpretation of Mary Magdalenewas
she in reality Jesus wife? Nadia Benabid translates for the first
time Angel Vásquezs masterpiece The Vida Perra of Juanita
Narboni (to be published by Great Marsh Press). Written in the Tangier
Spanish dialect Jaktia, akin to Ladino (a combination of Spanish, Hebrew
and Arabic), Juanita Narboni is to 1950s Tangier what Molly Bloom is
to Dublin. Juan Goytisolo fires a blast at the corruption of the Spanish
literary world that has been heard all through Europe.
Times we live in are brilliantly evoked in the narrative writing of
Michael Carroll, Alan Cheuse, Stanley Crouch, Stephen Dixon, Elizabeth
Gaffney, Judith Rossner and Miriam Rugel. New American Voices include
Judith Kellem and Ingrid Lundy.
Poets Corner: The poetry of Sally Dawidoff, Lisa Katz, Don Maggin and Elizabeth Morse.
Art Portfolio: Art by the Spanish artist Gonzalo Torné and drawings by Bill Anthony, inspired by Balthus, Dylan Thomas and John Gruen.
