Lit Notes: Feb. 14th

Lit Notes: (Upcoming Events)

Saturday, February 16th, at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd. Hollywood - 4PM, Free of Charge
Vagabond Books presents a book launch party for Ernest Rosenthal’s Not for Drones.

If you haven't heard about Ernest's work, it is a must read.  Here are a few comments on his work:

At 92, Ernest Rosenthal presents his brilliant intellectual prose poems ranging on subjects as resonant as the Holocaust that he lived through, to the twisted-cross irony of the tragic nationalism of Israel tangled up with the imperialism of the United States in an age of cannibal consumerism. A book of truths, which is also replete with much humor, as is necessary in these days when lies are the hottest commodity on the mockit.

Jack Hirschman


I like very much what you have written here!  Thank you.

Howard Zinn


Thanks for sharing this moving rendition of your horrifying past, tempered by this retention of moral sanity … Your legacy of survival is inspiring to those of us who have been mainly spared such harrowing experiences.

With the greatest respect,

Richard Falk
United Nations Special Rapporteur for Human Rights
