Atom Egoyan's revenge thriller "Remember" has such a compelling premise and an accomplished cast that it's a. .He keeps the structural gamesmanship to a minimum in "Remember," embodying most of the story's instability in Plummer's performance.

Christopher Plummer, still imposing at 86, plays Zev Guttman, a concentration camp survivor who lost his family in World War II to a sadistic Blockführer known as Kurlander, and is now living in a retirement home in New York City. Is this the right strategy for a tale of pain, revenge and elusive truth, though? Perhaps not.

house her father had built.

house her father had built. Woodstock Heights looked much the same. The gravel drive up to the house was just as neat and weed-free, the paintwork seemed fresh, though the same colour, the dog was new. He came out to stand by my car door, a golden retriever, and by heaven he’d remembered, though I hadn’t. He’d been two years old when I’d last seen him.

I remembered a talk I’d gone to at the University of New Hampshire once. Rebecca Rule, who is Portsmouth’s jolly postmistress of literature, was in conversation with Charles Simic onstage. Simic hadn’t yet been appointed Poet Laureate back then. He read a poem by a Serbian poet named Vasko Popa, part of the poet’s little box series. Poets sometimes write a series of poems on one subject. Ted Hughes did it with Crow, the book he published after his wife Sylvia Plath killed herself, which has frightening Leonard Baskin illustrations

A collection of reminiscences of Claude Debussy by friends and colleagues. In addition to first-hand accounts of music lessons with the composer, there are personal details such as his loathing of Wagner and Beethoven, his ironic wit and his love of Dickens.
  • The large number of entries by persons who knew Debussy give a wonderfully detailed picture of the man, his music, and his life. In addition, Debussy's quoted remarks about other composers' music are provocative and well worth reading. I was glad to discover that I'm not the only person who dislikes music that is only architecture.

    Particularly noteworthy, however, is the inclusion of a poignant letter written by Debussy's daughter, Claude-Emma (Chouchou), to her half-brother, Raoul Bardac, during the days following her father's passing. The letter gives a vivid account of Debussy's last hours and of Chouchou's unbearable grief regarding his death. It's a remarkably mature and sensitive communication by a girl who was only 12 or 13 years old.

  • I am a fanatic Debussy lover and this book is replete with interviews with people who knew him both professionally and personally. Nichols is an excellent writer and quite knowledgeable about both Debussy and Ravel. For insight on Debussy's complex character, I highly recommend this book.
