If you live outside the Netherlands you probably haven’t heard of Dutch singer Patricia Paay, unless your name is David Bowie.
And now her biography has been published. I haven’t read it, but it’s hard to miss: there are new revelations every day. Yet another person who strenuously denies he has slept with Ms Paay as part of a damage limitation exercise.
Except David Bowie: he admits everything. It happened during a song festival in Malta, where he obviously slept with…

By David Klein
Broadway Books, 376 pgs
The only people who stay in character in Clean Break are a gambling addict (Adam) and a 10-year-old child (Spencer). Now I don't know about you but I would tend to believe that the man with no character left, and the young one just developing character, would be the ones most likely to violate. Instead it's the adults, who have up until now been solid, responsible and dependable…Continue

“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.”
–Henry David Thoreau
Tired of the air conditioning and needing fresh air, I recently opened one of my kitchen windows and I heard them. I sighed. The sweetness of the familiar summer sound mingled with the bitterness of what that sound meant. The trees thick with the cicadas’ song reminded me that the long-lit warm days of summer are coming to an end. Then within days, it started, the back-to-school…

I thought once I completed the story of Set Free that I would move on to something else. I discovered I was wrong. With An Amish Home, I really enjoy going back to Karsten Field. The first story is available for $0.99 at this link - http://goo.gl/oc82v…

There is a lot of originality in this dark tale. Burrell writes very well, and with a great deal of invention. I can only find any significant fault any in the concentration demanded of the reader. A little more description of each character on first appearance, or an index of characters profiles and key locations, would have helped me. My poor memory, alongside my tendency to skim read, are certainly much of my problem and so I really don't wish to labour the…Continue

Imagine a stack of one million books. Now imagine that they are all the same book. (For my friends in the 12 x 12 Writing Challenge, just for fun, imagine the book as a published form of one of your own manuscripts. Ahhhh.......OK! Back to reality!) Actually, the enormous stack of books you are imagining isImogene's Antlers by David Small. It has sold over 1,000,000 copies since 1985…Continue

Fox News argues that the new Muppets film aims to brainwash children into thinking all rich people are bad, because it features a very evil oil tycoon.
Well, they didn’t voice objections against the inventor of Donald Duck or the Grimm brothers, for encouraging highly violent behaviour.
I think, in general, society is becoming more Muppet-like. Consider David Beckham: with a voice like that – and don’t forget his hair – he must be a Muppet. Elvis Presley and Michael…

Following the talks in Brussels, the front page of The Times showed David Cameron as Manneken Pis aiming at the head of Nicolas Sarkozy, and the next day someone remarked to me that Nicolas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel reminded her of Punch and Judy.
Would the true leader please stand up? Because that’s the problem: we’re missing a leader with a vision.
Mark Rutte, the Dutch Prime Minister, tried to convince David Cameron. They looked like two public schoolboys. Mark…
