Christopher G. Moore Updates: 12 September 2014

Dear Reader,

Following on last week’s essay titled Obey, I’ve expanded the theme week with a new essay titled Obedience. A fundamental issues of our time is the relationship between legitimacy of political institutions and the obedience of citizens to follow orders. In the age of social media, we have a generation born after 1990 whose mindset shaped by a digital landscape. What does obedience mean to this new generation?

A documentary film crew from New York has been interviewing me about Barney Rosset, legendary publisher and founder of Grove Press, who published among others Henry Miller and Samuel Beckett. Barney was a mentor for nearly twenty years. Barney was a fan of the Vincent Calvino series. I wrote essays and reviews published by Barney Rosset in his Evergreen Press. I spent many hours inside his New York loft in the East Village, and he spent many hours with me in Bangkok.

Star of Love, my short story is based on an afternoon drinking in Patpong with my mentor Barney Rosset. This story along with three essays about Barney Rosset, Henry Miller and George Orwell are now available on under the title Obey.

This short book uses essays and fiction to examine the role of a political writer (George Orwell) and a sensual writer (Henry Miller). These two iconic literary figures used their work to challenge the conventional norms establishing the ground rules for our sexual and political arrangements.

Have a great week.

Warm regards,

Memory ManifestoMemory Manifesto

Memory Manifesto’s 35 short chapters reveal Christopher G. Moore’s personal map of the Cambodia labyrinth. Moore worked as journalist, novelist, and essayist which took him through T-3 prison, Khmer Rouge minefields, border refugee camps in the company of activists, artists, film makers, musicians, writers and unsavory characters. The overall effect is a powerful vision of one writer’s memory shaped by the forces of myth-making, illusions, history and imagination. More>>


Calvino investigates the death of a friend, a Canadian painter. The medical examiner finds the young man has ingested an exit drug, and the police verdict of suicide seems justified. But in Bangkok appearances have a habit of deceiving. Sometimes jumpers are given a leg up in their leap to the next life. Fingering the helper can be a risky business, and for Calvino this promises to be one of those times. More>>
