"...what Peltenburg-Brechneff offers in his paintings is the experience of being in gardens-the texture, style, and mood of each place... There's a confident playfulness on display through¬out, like watching a jazz pianist let loose on a keyboard. Readers will hope the artist isn't finished going out on the road and into the garden just yet." - Flower Magazine

Into the Garden by artist Christian Peltenburg-Brechneff is just that kind of book... thing about this book that caught me off guard a bit is the bold, abstract quality of the images (and that I was so enchanted by them).

“Neumann’s book has many qualities – it is beautifully presented, very wide ranging and nicely illustrated – but above all it is a reminder of what the radical right wants to destroy, and how it wants to turn a vibrant, thriving scene into a world of sameness and conformity.” – CARR

Great write-up in CARR on The Banat of Timisoara (9781785511240).

The first time I visited Timişoara, in 2002, it looked drab, depressed and wrecked by Ceauşescu’s appalling communist regime.

Photographing Goats and Sheep Like Aristocracy

Horan’s portraits of regal Isabella, goofball Stanwood, imperious Sherlock, and “excuse me” Jake, among other agreeable sitters, invite us to notice the variety, dignity, and personalities of these lowly farm creatures, who speak to us through the camera in a profile, a sideward glance, or a direct gaze. With different gestures, faces, and expressions, they are funny, fascinating, intelligent, curious, engaging “others” who command our undivided attention and respect. They remind us that we are all fellow creatures – and the camera isn’t always on us. - L'Oeil de la Photographie

Kevin Horan photographs goats and sheep in the same way he would upper-class country gentlemen and ladies.

The Blind Earthworm in the Labyrinth: A Novel | Washington Independent Review of Books

“Rich with mythical imagery, [The Blind Earthworm in the Labyrinth] plunges the reader into a contemporary Thai life strongly influenced by Western culture while steeped in timeless traditions and Buddhist thought, and roiled by decades of political dissent. … The translator has done a masterful job of capturing the author’s sumptuous prose, each sentence unfurling like a brightly dyed bolt of silk. Despite a doomed sense of a tragedy foretold, the story is a celebration of life that engages all the senses, redolent with food and music, fecund with the splendor of nature, opulent with life, as one story uncovers another story and on into infinity. … [A] rare glimpse into the torrid heart of modern Thai life.” ~ Washington Independent Review of Books

The Independent is an important voice in the community of readers and writers dedicated to book reviews and writing about the world of books.

Our new title The Blind Earthworm in the Labyrinth has been getting wonderful reviews across the board!

“The effect of Veeraporn’s narrative is akin to a malarial hallucination, but that’s what Bangkok feels like: a soap opera in which someone wakes up and realizes that the preceding episodes were all just a fever dream. Or is the waking the actual dream?....Veeraporn’s Bangkok is an immersive experience, exotic but not exoticized.” – The New York Times Book Review

“Mesmerizing and unputdownable - a virtuoso translation of what must surely be one of the best Thai novels to make it into English.” - Lawrence Osborne, author of Hunters in the Dark and Only to Sleep

“At its core, this novel from Veeraporn Nitiprapha has a simple dynamic: the tension between two sisters, and the young man whose life interweaves with each of theirs. What makes this novel unique is its attention to the granular, whether it’s the music that several of its characters obsess over or its author’s tendency to fill in the history or future of a specific character at a moment’s notice.” - Words Without Borders, February 2019 Watchlist

“Engrossing and addictive – a unique window onto the Thai soul in turmoil. More than any other Thai publication in English currently out right now, The Blind Earthworm in the Labyrinth is the most complete and enjoyable novel for losing one’s self in Thai fiction.” - Asian Review of Books (Hong Kong)

“Nitiprapha has been referred to as the Arundhati Roy of Thailand. [Her] unorthodox style and prowess, which mirrors the classical Thai drama, has made her an international phenomenon one should not miss out on.” - Scroll.in (India)

“Nitiprapha’s feverish and dreamy novel … is a tour de force that looks at the romantic ideals that come to us from stories and songs, and how they can cause us to lose our way, like blind earthworms in a labyrinth. Compelled to write this book after seeing the clashes between pro- and anti-government forces in Thailand in 2010, [she] seems to suggest that, just like romanticising love, romanticising political leaders can lead to madness and delusion. … This slim novel is like a seductive and intoxicating soap opera. Melodramatic and mesmerising, the book dives deep into love and comes up smelling of roses.” - The Straits Times newspaper (Singapore)
