Robert Boyd's Book Report: Music & Literature No. 4

 Robert Boyd

Today I looked at Music & Literature no. 4, a journal devoted to deep dives of a relatively small number of writers and musicians/composers. In this case, the people under discussion were:

Brazilian novelist, Clarice Lispector

Irish double bassist and composer, Barry Guy

Swiss early music violinist, Maya Homburger

American poet, Mary Truefle

I talk a little about each of them, with side-trips to Rachel Kushner, Hélène Cixous, and Benjamin Moser, author of the biography of Clarice Lispector, Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector.

And I want to leave you with a piece of Barry Guy music that I liked, After the Rain.

I went back and looked for additional photos of Hélène Cixous and found one where she has on her "sphinx" make-up.
