Savoy Truffle's Comments    
Cover ArtHeart of darkness
by Joseph Conrad
Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe criticized Heart of Darkness and called Conrad "a bloody racist" and the novella "an offensive and totally deplorable book" that de-humanized Africans. Specifically, Achebe argued that Conrad, ’blinkered...with xenophobia,’ incorrectly depicted Africa as the antithesis to Europe, and thus to civilization.   posted May 3, 2014 at 11:24AM

Cover ArtSputnik sweetheart : a novel
by Haruki Murakami
Ride along with Jack Kerouac %26 the Sputniks through altered consciousnesses of unrequited love, Grecian folly, and fractured identity. And to make art?   posted Mar 26, 2014 at 9:29AM

Cover ArtMarch violets
by Philip Kerr
Philip Kerr inks the darkest of noir, set in the 1930s during Germany’s inexorable slide into the abyss of Nazism. Private Investigator Bernie Gunther specializes in missing persons, and when he meets clients who won’t take no for an answer he’s plummeted into a sinister world of overflowing morgues, torture chambers, and concentration camps.   posted Mar 13, 2014 at 3:30PM

Cover ArtCoda : a novel
by Rene Belletto
What if it was YOU who defeated death and brought immortality to the world? What if you got to the end of the story (or the end of history) and couldn’t remember how it had begun?   posted Mar 12, 2014 at 10:44AM

Cover ArtBorges and the eternal orangutans
by Luis Fernando Verissimo
Become Borges, ponder the "Eternal Orangutan," (which, given all eternity, would end up writing all books), venerate Poe, and solve a murder in Verissimo’s small masterpiece.   posted Mar 7, 2014 at 10:15AM
