Bonkers but captivating.  I like it.  It's surreal, but still has a purpose, tells a story and is very funny at times.  I've enjoyed it more each time I've read it.

Posted on Mon, 28 Nov 2016

As a prose writer who's scared to death of writing poetry (though I love reading it) I recently, and by accident, signed up for a poetry course.  I've really enjoyed it and they've put us through our paces, having a bash at villanelle, sestina,...

Elsie, I think this is wonderful.  Beautifully observed and beautifully controlled, with all the details showing us these lives, the rhythm of friendship. Warm and true, with that touch of wryness.

Beautifully controlled, with the richness of the detail enabling the reader to see, hear and taste the scene.  Sharp and lyrical at the same time.

There may be light at the end of the tunnel, if you've seen Tony's post about a possible way forward.  Don't give up on this site just yet!

Posted on Mon, 17 Oct 2016

Really exciting chapter.  The paragraph beginning 'She was feeling dizzy...' is particularly effective - there was something horrific in the image of Johnson's 'pale face' just staring at her.  I admire the way you are racking up the action while...

I​ found this really moving, Jean.  The careful and restrained way Toyo tries to maintain decency and a sense of normality in such an impossible situation, and the powerlessness of all the internees, is beautifully drawn.  I'm really enjoying...

Interesting comments on the different way German and Japanese internees reacted to the situation.  I've recently been re-reading The Man In The High Castle, Philip K Dick's alternative history where the Axis won the war and America is divided...

I wasn't too sure about this when it started, but the details of the pool hall and the game were fascinating and really carried me along.  I'm not too sure about the ending.  I liked the way you set it up as 'old guy meets his young nemesis' and...

It does sound  easy, but it never is.  Loved the line 'The stretcher bearers are silently carrying the dead away. Reason lost another battle last night.'  I hope the narrator finds a way through.
