The links to this week's reviews;https://socialistjazz.blogspot.com/2019/09/fridays-forgotten-books-and-more-links_28.html
This week's books and more, unfairly (or sometimes fairly) neglected, or simply those the reviewers below think you might find of some interest (or, infrequently, you should be warned away from); certainly, most weeks we have a few not at all forgotten titles, and particularly this week, as we celebrate Banned Books Week...
Also of note, a film a still featuring the recently late writer Carol Emshwiller and two of her and filmmaker/visual artist Edmund Emshwiller's children...as a new exhibit and retrospective of Emshwiller's film, video and still visual art will soon be on display in Philadelphia...
