Collective Imbalance and Discord is the title of an essay I wrote following the US presidential election. You can read it at: http://www.cgmoore.com/blog/
I have been collecting titles recommended by readers to pass along to others to read in this post-election era. What book would you choose to open a door of knowledge or understanding to the new post-election world? Let me know. I’ll add you title to the list and post the full list later this month on my website and FB page.
The paperback edition of Jumpers is now available directly from amazon. The novel is 362 pages, and retails for $13.95. This is the first Calvino novel, which will not be stocked at Asia Books, Kinokunya, etc. Those golden days have passed. An argument can be made that we are head back to the Bronze Age. Whatever the age, you won’t want to miss this latest Calvino. It’s one of the best in the series.
Another five-star review for Jumpers on amazon:
“Thailand has changed in the many years Vincent Calvino has been around, and so has he. But in the core he’s remained the same: an honest man in a crooked world, trying to stay true to himself, even when forced to accept a compromise. But he’s becoming older and wiser like all of us, if we are lucky.
“I always wonder which parts of his novels Christopher Moore just invents and which ones are rooted deep in experience. Don’t misunderstand me: I don’t Want to *know*, absolutely not, I just wonder.
It’s part of the fascination of a really good novel that you never can discern where reality stops and Imagination sets in. Interweaving both to create a reality which is more than reality is the hallmark of great writers.”
The best gift you can give an author is a review of his or her book. That goes for all the books you value; pass along your personal treasures to ensure the lives of others.
