Really enjoyed this interview. I'm a big fan of Stona's work.

Nice to see a plug for Charlie Williams, who doesn't get the attention he deserves: ace crime writer with a twisted tail. I'll have to check out Fitch. Anyone who likes Daydream Nation that much must be alright.

Ah, Stereolab. Great interview, thanks.


Stona Fitch is an amazing writer, and the Concord Free Press is a fucking inspiration.

Check out a feature I wrote for Independent on Sunday on him:

Great interview, waiting for more. Thanks

Hey interesting concept. Seems to be the way of the internet. As an internet marketer you're told to give stuff away before asking your subscribers to buy from you. Attraction marketing, it's called.

Bold idea, though, giving away your novel. As it happens, I've begun doing that, although with less of an altruistic motive in mind - I need to find a decent publisher!

If you have a minute, do visit my blog http://sexinliterature.com. If you're intrigued by Sisi & Sonia and might review it, I'd be happy to send you a copy. Cheers

Nic

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    Atomised
    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : The Illusionist

    The Illusionist
    This one had passed me by but I am glad I caught it. (****)

  • : La Grande Illusion

    La Grande Illusion
    I did enjoy this but one of the greatest films of all time? I think not. (***)

  • : The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Watched this again. Still amazing. (*****)

  • : What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    What's Eating Gilbert Grape
    Watched this for the first time in ages. Still pretty good. Leo is excellent in it. His best performance? Perhaps. (****)

  • : Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

    Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
    Long story but I watched this weird and very dark festive movie a month after Christmas and I loved it. (****)

  • : Diva

    Diva
    Been meaning to watch this ever since I saw Betty Blue back in the 80s but only just got round to it. I feared it would be all style over substance but it actually turned out to be a pretty good crime thriller. (****)

  • : Brothers

    Brothers
    Subtle and brilliantly acted. Liked it a lot more than I expected to. (****)

  • : Whiplash

    Whiplash
    An OK movie elevated above the norm by two excellent performances. (***)

  • : Timecrimes

    Timecrimes
    Great bit of timey-wimey nonsense. Liked it a lot. (****)

  • : More Than Honey

    More Than Honey
    Interesting documentary about bees. Didn't blow me away but kept me watching. (***)

  • : Happy-Go-Lucky

    Happy-Go-Lucky
    I thought this was going to irritate me but I ended up being quite charmed by it. (****)

  • : Our Day Will Come

    Our Day Will Come
    Bonkers road movie in which Vincent Cassel goes off on one in revenge for discrimination against redheads. Or something. (**)

  • : La Strada

    La Strada
    Supposedly Fellini's first masterpiece but it was painted with too broad brushstrokes to work its charm on me. The off-putting dubbed dialogue and sound effects didn't help either. (**)

  • : Birdman

    Birdman
    Inspired, ambitious, bonkers. (****)

  • : Inglourious Basterds

    Inglourious Basterds
    Only just got round to watching this. It is ridiculous but lots of fun. Also, an amazing about of subtitled dialogue for a major American film. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)
