Passage 11


Ed Jansen writes to let me know that the latest edition of his web magazine, Passage, is now online. Once again, most of the features listed below are in Dutch but that doesn’t exclude all visitors here. David Britton has been recommending Jonathan Littell’s The Kindly Ones to me so I guess I’ll be reading that soon.

• Sylvia Plath, a biography.
• Ingrid Jonker, poet from South-Africa, essay on her life and work.
• Jack Kerouac & William Burroughs, a review of And The Hippos Were Boiled In Their Tanks.
• William Burroughs in Texas, a review of Rob Johnson’s, The Lost Years of William S. Burroughs.
• Aleister Crowley, an article about Crowley’s possible involvement with the Secret Service.
• Rudolf Hess, double agent? A view on his flight to Britain.
• Jonathan Littell, an in-depth review of his work The Kindly Ones. War as hallucination.
• Enrique Marty & Maurizio Cattelan, a review of the work from two conceptual artists.

One thought on “Passage 11”

  1. Huh. Turns out that Jonathan Littell, author of The Kindly Ones is the same Jonathan Littell who wrote Bad Voltage, which I thought was completely amazing when I was a late teen (and actually still quite like now, although the author is a bit embarrassed by it). Amongst other things, Bad Voltage features the Paris catacombs, art terrorists (always a favorite theme for me), awesome music (although he got the sides wrong on that final Joy Division album). Hell, the guy predicted the iPod. I may have to check out The Kindly Ones after all….
