Christopher G. Moore Updates: 8 July 2015

Dear Readers,

There has been a lot of local and international drama that exceeds the imaginative range of any working novelist. The Euro unraveling, Nigeria collapsing in a sinkhole of violence, Greece in financial crisis, student activists in Bangkok before a military tribunal ordered release, Donald Trump channeling Jefferson Davis, the president of the South during the Civil War, the Chinese stock market falling like a drunk off a barstool, and it goes on.

In an essay titled Ideologies of Consent, I have a look at the meaning of consent within a political system. Sometimes what we assume is an easy issue is a difficult one. Consent. Consensus. These are words that cry out for definition. When we consider the historical record, we find that Ďconsentí has been an expanding to include many people previously excluded. The process of inclusion since the Magna Carta has never been won without controversy and conflict.

This afternoon, 1.00 p.m. at the Wine Connection, Soi 47 and Sukhumvit Road, Keith Nolan interviews me for his TV program: Between the Lines. Iíll be talking about the Calvino series and writing fiction in Southeast Asia for the last 27 years.

Reading a good book still yields the best dividend. You will be enriched in ways that money canít buy.

Best,
Christopher
