Afternoon of Readings in Amsterdam

Shanghai Noir

The Dancing Girl and the Turtle: publication date 01.04.2017

I missed my opportunity last week to wish you all a happy lunar new year. I rarely celebrate that event and, in truth, forgot all about it. Luckily The Guardian reminded me. Not only is the lunar new year cause for celebration in China. It is also the instigation for the largest single mass migration in the world as families reunite.

A lot of that travel is still by train though, these days, cars and planes are normal modes of transportation. But when I first visited China in 1984, that wasn't the case. This week's blog post is a train ride down Memory Lane to my maiden voyage through China in Orient Express.

The remainder of my week will be devoted to the future and the reading I'm co-hosting this Sunday. If you're in Amsterdam then, please join us! We've got a great lineup of poets, writers, a stand-up comedian and yours truly.

If you can't make it to Amsterdam, then maybe this book review will suffice. Well, sort of a book review as it's a grab bag of literary journals that grabbed me in Magazine Mashup.

But wherever you are, please listen to this speech by Parkland survivor Emma Gonzalez. And if you've already heard it, listen again. The hell with thoughts and prayers. We need to take NRA-beholden politicians out of our state legislatures, statehouses and Congress. We need to do it now.
