Today on our little planet, we live in bewildering times. We’re essentially faced with this question: what should we be thinking, saying and doing about the challenges bearing down upon our lives? <br /><br />Answers can be hard to come by. Yet we, the community of Thoreau Farm, believe we have to search for them. So we wondered, if Henry David Thoreau were alive today, what would HE think, what HE say, what would HE do?

Through a collection of letters written to his best friend and to his father in England, and from his own personal diary entries, John Dodd’s memoir offers a fascinating and amusing glimpse of life as a colonial rubber planter. With true stories and confessions that would make even Somerset Maugham blush, we discover what life was really like for young colonial planters in late-1950s Malaya. Increasing daily rubber output may have been their goal but for the young planters the bigger picture of chasing girls and finding a ‘keep’ was of much greater importance. But life was more than just a series of stengahs in the clubhouse, dalliances in the Chinese brothels of Penang and charming ‘pillow dictionaries’ – there were strikes, riots, snakes, plantation fires and deadly ambushes by Communist terrorists to contend with. Set against the backdrop of the Emergency period, the rise of nationalism and Malaya’s subsequent Independence, A Company of Planters is a very personal, moving and humorous account of one man’s experiences on the frequently isolated rubber plantations of colonial Malaya.

<i>The Crow’s Dinner</i> is master novelist Jonathan Carroll’s debut essay collection, and that is very good news. Gathering together hundreds of entries that initially appeared on the website Medium, <i>The Crow’s Dinner</i> is at once a wide-ranging spiritual autobiography and an annotated guide to what Carroll calls “The Map of Me.”<br /><br />Beginning with an appreciation of “The Invisibles,” those insignificant moments we overlook at our peril, <i>The Crow’s Dinner</i> encompasses an extraordinary range of incidents, ideas, and images that cumulatively illuminate the inner and outer weather of a major American artist. This generous volume contains fragments of autobiography, reflections on the nature of creativity, vivid recreations of chance encounters, and provocative meditations on the complexity—and unpredictability—of human relationships. It is a book filled with colorful vignettes, unexpected bursts of whimsy, and observations filtered through an utterly unique sensibility. Witty, compassionate, open at all times to the “momentary magic” of existence, it is a work of singular beauty that is unlike anything you have ever read.<br /><br />Since the publication of his first novel, The Land of Laughs, in 1980, Jonathan Carroll has repeatedly offered us new and startling ways of looking at our familiar world. With <i>The Crow’s Dinner</i>, he speaks to us in direct, unmediated fashion about the things that matter most: love, lust, books, dogs, food, friendship—and the transforming power of the imagination. The result is an intimate, one-of-a kind tour of a lively, unfettered mind. Like the best of Carroll’s fiction, <i>The Crow’s Dinner</i> is a book that matters.<br />

"Singles K" é uma revista digital mensal que traz para o leitor cotidiano as melhores crônicas e artigos de nossos colunistas, publicados originalmente no portal internacional de notícias Crônicas da KBR. A matéria de capa da edição 127 traz uma séria, porém muito engraçada crônica de Angela Dutra de Menezes sobre a questão dos transgêneros e a dimensão que está atingindo em nossa sociedade, um tema que consideramos vital. A crítica de cinema de Lúcia Sivolella Wendling analisa o emocionante “Monsieur & Madame Adelman”. Na resenha literária, Vânia Gomes analisa a portentosa coleção de contos de Liev Tolstói, publicada em edição especial pela Cosac & Naify. A edição 127 também dá as boas-vindas ao colunista político Reginaldo Minaré, assessor jurídico no Senado Federal. Como está provado mais uma vez, Singles K trata com agilidade, leveza e profundidade os assuntos prementes da atualidade. <br />Gostou do que leu?
