A seasoned storyteller's work via cut-up method, combining history and naturalist memoir, NIAGARA DIGRESSIONS presents land as historical palimpsest, from ancient cave paintings to s mimeographed poetry, the massacre of the buffalo to the manufacture of shredded wheat cereal, and all points in-between.5/5(8). The Black Veil: A Memoir with Digressions by Moody, Rick and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Rick Moody's celebrated books include three novels and two collections of short fiction. He is a past recipient of the Addison Metcalf Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. His fiction and essays have appeared in many major publications. He lives in New York/5(12). Joe LeSueur's memoir of his friend and companion, is a truly illuminating portrait of the artist. What makes these digressions so rich and rewarding for the reader, is the unique perspective LeSueur is able to bring to this material.4/5.

The book is chronological, but if you were inclined, you wouldn't have to read it that way. Each page is its own essay - a story from Todd's life, the impact it had on him, and wrapped up with his own brand of "what I learned there" wisdom with a "take it or leave it" undertone/5. It's framed within Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Black Veil" which is interesting, but I'm not convinced it works. It's literal thread is formal and lofty when it could be captivating and urgent. The digressions are pretty great at times-beautiful phrasing-but also self indulgent and tedious/5.   Scala enthusiasts should note that (1) this post is a direct analog of a recent post that has corresponding thoughts on the finest Scala books, and (2) this post on the best Clojure (think Lisp) books is also highly relevant to me to elaborate very briefly: The programmer who has done justice to the notion expressed in the second of the two preceding . Featuring a foreword by the actor and author Emma Thompson, a former Wine School pupil, the book focusses on the classic grape varieties that form the backbone of great wines the world over. For each grape there are innovative practical pages with groundbreaking graphics that best describe vital factors such as aroma, flavour and balance, and wine and food.4/5(13).
