book: New Year’s Eve (1997) by Lisa Grunwald

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Sep 3, 2019

I came to this novel off the back of abandoning another. The book concerned — which shall here, as is my custom, remain anonymous — was only 165 pages long so, although it looked potentially a bit uninspiring, I reasoned I should surely be able to get through it easily enough and the ex read more

book: Such Small Hands (2008; trans 2017 Lisa Dillman) by Andrés Barba

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Dec 28, 2018

A strange little book, more like a longish novelette than even a novella. I’m still undecided as to whether I like it or not. Aged seven, Marina survives the car crash that kills her mom and dad, and, after extensive surgery, is shipped off to an orphanage: “My father died instantly, and then read more

Classic Films in Focus: LISA AND THE DEVIL (1973)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Jan 23, 2017

Lisa and the Devil (1973) is certainly one of the weirder Mario Bava films, and with Bava that's saying something, given that the Italian auteur made horror pictures like Kill, Baby, Kill (1966) and Baron Blood (1972). This darkly dreamy meditation on death struggled to find a distributor and ended read more
