Five Books

This year as the summer slowly changed into fall I started thinking about books that have had an impact on me. I hope you enjoy these five book tips!

Room for rent

As I am spending this weekend out in the countryside in a tiny house upon a lake, rented just for a few days, I decided to read Room for rent by Richie Narvaez. Simply because of the fitting name of this speculative short story. And I am glad I did!

A Dog Called Money

Musician PJ Harvey is the subject of photojournalist Seamus Murphys unorthodox music documentary, A Dog Called Money. The film follows Harvey on a poetic journey that becomes the creation of the album The Hope Six Demolition Project.

Book of Memory

In the Book of Memory we are met by an albino woman named Memory who is awaiting her sentence on death row in Chikurubi prison in Zimbabwe for the murder of her stepfather Lloyd. In her novel, Gappah tackles questions around perception and identity through Memory’s recollections of her life.

Lumino City

On the jaw-droppingly gorgeous video game best described as a point-and-click adventure unlike any other you’ve ever played. What differs Lumino City from other games is that the decor is handcrafted. It feels as if you can touch it from behind the screen, feel the textures and edges of the cardboard.

Pinocchio(s) by Alice Laloy

The photo exhibition Pinocchio(s) bestows a sense of timelessness. In this series, the artist Alice Laloy, takes a closer look at the legend of Pinocchio. Laloy mirrors the process of Geppettos wish for a puppet to become a real boy by transforming children into marionettes.
