Michael Marra – Arrest This Moment (James Robertson)

October 23rd, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink

You can now buy this biography of Michael Marra, which launched last Friday. Written by James Robertson (Professor of Truth, And the Land Lay Still, Testament of Gideon Mack etc) its an unconventional biography, featuring reconstructed conversations with Michael Marra, along with plenty of images and examples of Michael’s own drawings and paintings. I wrote the preface (originally written for this blog) and the cover is an image by Calum Colvin. You should go and buy it – also, almost all of Michael’s recordings are now available digitally, including some ‘new’ releases.

Book Review – “The Pike: Gabriele D’Annunzio” Lucy Hughes-Hallett (2013)

Yes – a really well put together biography of a poet, novelist, playwright, aviator, rapist, politician, soldier, cruel, sex-obsessed monster of a man. Fascinating and bewildering. “A greyhound or a thorough-bred horse, Ida Rubenstein’s legs, the body of an Ardito fording the Piave, the form and structure of my highly polished cranium – these are the most beautiful phenomena in the world”
