MEMOIR OF MÁRQUEZ


"At the end of the service, when [my friends] began to disperse, I attempted to leave too, but one of them made me see with decisive finality that as far as I was concerened, the party was over. 'You're the only one who can't go,' he said. Only then did I understand that dying means never being with freinds again." READ MORE


REVIEW: THE CONFABULIST

confabulist

"With a highly unreliable character experiencing mental confusion and memory loss narrates the story, the reader has to decide what’s real and what only exists in the imagination, much like the audience members at Houdini’s shows. The result is a disconcerting narrative that questions the reliability of the mind to understand what it sees." READ MORE


PRIMER: NICKY'S FAMILY

"My father, Henry Lewis, born Heinz Laufer, was more fortunate than most people. From a Czech Jewish family, he was, at age 14, one of the lucky children sent to safety in England in 1939 just before the outbreak of the Second World War. The person responsible was a 29-year-old London stockbroker named Nicholas Winton. Understanding the urgency, Winton organized an effort to evacuate, and relocate to England, as many Jewish children as possible before the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia. He managed to save the lives of 669 children, including my father. They eventually became known as Winton Kinder." READ MORE
