Anglais [eBook] Misprint

Résumé

'The only end of writing,'; Dr Johnson said, 'is to enable the readers better to enjoy life, or better to endure it.'; Misprint offers the reader countries and languages perceived through the eyes of youth and loss. Untimely deaths and memories of far-off lands abound, some dreamed, some lived. In this first collection, James Womack plays with ideas of tradition, lightly conjuring heavy themes, and makes a bow to pulp culture. He ferries us between Russia, Spain and North Korea and the differently 'real'; virtual environments of film, dream, ghosts, the North Korean Press Agency. 'Eurydice';, the concluding sequence, draws the different strands of the collection together. We end up dislocated: bewildered but rather happier about the future. As Mr Edwards said to the Great Cham: 'I, too, Sir, in my time have tried being a philosopher; but somehow cheerfulness kept creeping in.';
