Another fine year for writing
January 18, 2016 § Leave a comment
In about a month and a half this blog will be celebrating its 1st anniversary. I think I’ve certainly gotten the hang of things over the last 10 months. Here’s what’s in store for 2016.
I started this blog with the sole purpose of writing and sharing my reviews with anyone possibly interested in reading them. And I plan to stick by it; book reviews will remain the bread and butter of my writing. 2016 will feature the likes of exalted names such as Marquez, Vidal, Dickens, Lewis, Steinbeck, Bulgakov, Kafka, Camus, and many more.
Opinions & Analyses
For as obsessive and compulsive a reader as I it’s hard not to form opinions. And what better outlet for those opinions than writing. From the continuing effect of National Socialism on the German psyche, to the rampant corruption of Jacob Zuma’s government I’ll be using this column to take a look at current affairs and headlines from around the world.
I’ve had the good fortune to live in numerous countries (see About) and I suspect that I’ll never be able to truly get the nomad out of my system. Case in point: whilst most of my time is spent in Budapest, I remain quite transient; spending considerable time in Edinburgh and Stockholm too. The purpose of this column is to be able to convey the experiences of my travels; whether they be cultural, historical or mere observances.
I hope like me you too, dear reader, are exhilarated by all that’s in store.
