Across the United Kingdom, streets are lined with Union Jacks in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee — 60 years since she inherited the crown in 1952. But with the Queen’s Golden Jubilee only a decade behind them, a royal wedding last year, and the Olympics coming up this summer, are Britons up for yet another party?Next, Nina Arianda is the it-girl on Broadway — she’s nominated for a Tony for her performance in David Ives’ comedy Venus In Fur. The show is a play within a play: a writer has adapted an erotic novel for the stage, and he’s having a hell of a time casting the lead. Enter Vanda: a sexy, sly actress who is by turns sultry and bombastic, and pretty much takes over the show. Then, in Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun, a black family buys a house in an all-white neighborhood — and even before they move in, the neighbors are up in arms. Karl Lindner, a member of the Clybourne Park property owners association, visits the buyers, suggesting that “Negro families are happier when they live in their own communities.” Following that, the San Antonio band Girl in a Coma formed over a junior high obsession over the tortured music of Morrissey. “I loved him so much it hurt,” says singer Nina Diaz, who was only 13 when she joined the band. “I turned vegetarian after that, started reading Oscar Wilde, eating yogurt and bagels and trying to be just like him.” Bassist Jenn Alva remembers, “We had posters all over the room, and we would talk to them.” After that, according to the Entertainment Software Association, 72% of American households play videogames while, according to the Motion Picture Association of America, 67% of Americans went to the movies. If those figures are both correct, videogames might now be the great American pastime. And finally, WNYC listener Julie Bayley grew up watching daytime talk shows to catch comics like Rodney Dangerfield. But there weren’t an 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kurt Andersen.

'I&#8217;d put Last Words in a category that includes much of Kathy Acker and Henry Miller. Stein, too...It&#8217;s a deeply personal text. Yet it bears reading and rereading an abundance of times.'&#8212;Eileen Myles, Bookforum 'Qiu&#8217;s voice, both colloquial and metaphysical, enchants.... It would be wrong to interpret the book&#8217;s&#8212;or, for that matter, the author&#8217;s&#8212;ultimate surrender to death as a rejection of the richness of life; rather, like Goethe&#8217;s young Werther, this 'last testament' (an alternative translation of the title) affirms the power of literature.' &#8212; Publishers Weekly &#8220; Last Words from Montmartre is urgent, ecstatic, unbridled, and breathtakingly intimate. Qiu Miaojin is a writer who truly defies categorization, and this book, her last&#8212;part confession, part love letter, part fiction, part memoir, part suicide notes&#8212;is a thrilling testament to her original mind and impassioned heart.&#8221; &#8212;Sarah Shun-lien Bynum &#8220; Last Words from Montmartre is deeply, soulfully moving in its excruciating revelation of the author&#8217;s innermost self, which is after all what makes the magic of literature. I felt a secret intimacy with Qiu Miaojin from the first page.&#8221; &#8212;Wang Dan &#8220;Qiu Miaojin...had an exceptional talent. Her voice is assertive, intellectual, witty, lyrical, and intimate. Several years after her death, her works continue to command a huge following.&#8221; &#8212;Tze-lan Deborah Sang &#8220;A flawless translation.&#8221;&#8212;Josh Stenberg, World Literature Today &#8220;What makes Kerouac or Salinger timeless is not necessarily literary, but perhaps didactic: the fact that there is wisdom to be found at the fountain of youth, no matter what time one arrives. Of course, there is also a saintliness reserved for those authors who are able to make an interesting life story for themselves, and that order includes Qiu Miaojin.&#8221; &#8212;Bonnie Huie, PEN America blog &#8220;Qiu&#8217;s unique literary style mingl[es] cerebral, experimental language use, psychological realism, biting social critique through allegory, and a surrealist effect deriving from the use of arrestingly unusual metaphors.&#8221; &#8212;Fran Martin 'In Last Words from Montmartre, selves and emotions hurtle through time and space with terrifying force &#8212; both destructive and productive &#8212; and ecstasy and pain exist in very close proximity.&#8221; &#8212; FullStop &#8220; Last Words from Montmartre [is] intense, brutal and beautiful. A love letter and a suicide note.' &#8212; The Rumblr &#8220;Few writers use the confession and aphorism as purely and effectively as Qiu, whose poetry offers a distinct type of clarity; Last Words from Montmartre achieves a profoundly intimate portrait of an individual whose life unravels before us.&#8221; &#8212;Jenn Mar, Rain Taxi 'Ari Larissa Heinrich&#8217;s translation is so skillful because he is able to understand Qiu as an artist, including all her tiny nuances, and her importance as an artistic figure&#8230;This is a novel of passion: the passion to love, to understand, to know, to express, to connect, to live and to die with reason...As readers, when a writer lays bare for us with such brutal honesty, truth will always be what we see&#8230;This isn&#8217;t a book of love letters or a book of suicide notes; its a testament to the power of artistic courage in the face of pain, misery and isolation.' &#8212;Monica Carter, Three Percent &#8220;Thanks to Heinrich's skill and judgment, Qiu&#8217;s passion is as overwhelming and relentless a force in translation as in the original. Qiu&#8217;s prose strikes the reader like a tsunami: waters of an unassuming height slowly but assuredly surge onto the land until they fill every room and take every object not nailed down. This is not simply passion, but what the Chinese call qing, which is passion as a full-blown aesthetic

Jim Tarrent and Jenn Tarrent are settling down to a new routine in their detective agency following their marriage. They have the usual mix of cases, but also pick up a case for military intelligence involving two dead service personnel discovered in unusual circumstances while Jim plugs away at solving a child hit and run mystery no matter what it costs. However, both cases lead them into murky territory where simple objectives have morphed into potential scandals that no-one on high wants revealed. Jim's unusual evidence gathering skills and Jenn's organisation lead them further on than anyone else, but perhaps the outcome is not worth the trouble involved.
