Tod Wodicka's new novel THE HOUSEHOLD SPIRIT

I rarely post about books - but Shumon Basar posted yesterday about Tod Wodicka's new book on the twitter: and I was also fortunate enough to get ahold of an advance copy so it is easy to confirm; yes: Tod Wodicka's new novel is pretty-much totally amazing - and it is actually also safe to say it is better than his first, All Shall Be Well, and All Shall Be Well, and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well - which was also met with a ton of critical acclaim. So: go Tod! (Must be that, uh, fantastic Berlin air? ;) Apparently the author will be on BBC Radio 3 on Monday to talk about one of the Household Spirit's themes: sleep paralysis - not sure if people outside the UK can listen to that...

interview with platypus down author

In an interesting interview with "PLATYPUS DOWN" author (who currently remains unnamed) he said something that really resonated with me (as a Gen XY guy): "You know... when you are 5 years old and you see the NOTHING wipe out Fantasia... that is traumatic - a really devastatingly traumatic experience, and it sticks with you - so you go on a mission, almost automatically - to stave-off, to defeat this Nothing and all its servants." he said some other stuff about Jim Henson, George Lucas, and Steven SPielberg (also Tim Burton and Sam Shepard) whom I think he referred to as his "real cultural fathers" but the link is down, I'll repost the link IF i can fin it again... (Not even sure where it is from - Eastern Europe?) ;p
