Grant Morrison takes us on an action-packed ride at Christmas - very good stuff!
Happy! - Grant Morrison,Darick Robertson

Firstly, if you’re easily offended by bad language, this comic is NOT for you because swearing abounds. As does bloodshed and quite a body count. This tale of an ex-detective down on his luck teaming up with an imaginary blue flying horse is original, nicely-illustrated and well worth a look, especially if you’re already familiar with Grant Morrison’s dark writing. I enjoyed this for its storytelling and it kept me interested until the inevitable ending. Recommended to all lovers of crime comics and fans of the creative team.

Jazz - Toni Morrison

Spring has sprung in the City; months gone by since, that Violet, Violent, at the funeral. author still takes us backwards while we go forwards, sometimes--a bit of Joe Trace's history, some of it downright scary, some of it with the kind of gaps you don't want to have. 

 

terrific book...I shall finish it tomorrow.

I love it. I was hoping I would...and I do. we have that whole "poetry in the prose" thing going on, which I love, when I'm in the mood, and the author is good at it...which she is. we've got the "bits and pieces of plot scattered about, with hidden care" approach flowing right along, which is great, when I want that, and when the author does an amazing job...which she does. wish it was longer...glad she has more books.

so, as of now, every second book--not counting graphic novels--will be a way of celebrating Black History Month, either because I am experiencing a Black author's words, or reading something like Darktown, which fits in with my goal too. naturally, the main focus is on Black authors. Jazz seems like a good place to start, because I love Jazz music, almost as much as Blues, and I love reading about the 1920s, and I have never read Toni Morrison. I read the Foreward already, and loved the way that was written, so I'm anticipating a great time with this book. I've got an Ethel Payne (journalist) biography handy--bought it just as I was about to start Tong Wars as my Nonfiction pick of the month, and debated putting Tong Wars aside at the time, but that's fine, I'll do two Nonfiction books this month--and Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower is waiting on my shelves too. if I need something else to keep to the plan, late in the month, I'll visit the bookstore. meanwhile...Jazz!
