Matthieu Rereads and Reviews: The Sun Also Rises

I first read The Sun Also Rises the summer leading up to my junior year of high school. At the time I thought it was great because I thought that Hemingway, both the man and idea, was great. Now I’m a little bit older and know less than I did then. I can still say with confidence that The Sun Also Rises is a great novel, a seminal novel. Without getting into a history lesson on modernist literature, just know that this book was revolutionary. No one had the casual authorial voice of Hemingway in the 1920s.

Celebrating Black Art!

This Black History Month, I wanted to take the time to celebrate the legendary, in his own words, Jean-Michael Basquiat. August 12th will mark the 30th anniversary of his untimely death. All February long Cavalier House Books will be featuring books on Basquiat in remembrance of his work and role in the critical and commercial rise of black American artists. For me, Basquiat is where many white Americans began to appreciate black expression without trying to exploit it. Elvis stole from Chuck Berry but no one's stolen from Basquiat, maybe no one can. for the Holidays!

Sometimes life gets a little too busy to sit down and read a book. Whether it’s family, work, or chores, it’s hard to find even just those few precious minutes. I love stories though. They have been a part of me since I was a little girl. Even my dreams have always been filled with plots and suspense. And if I don’t have at least a few moments to enjoy a good story, I can feel a little stressed. So I turned to audiobooks. The wonderful thing about them, is you can keep working, cleaning, driving, and doing whatever it is you need to get done, and still enjoy a good story.
