Câmara Obscura Literature: "The Pigeon Tunnel - Stories from My Life" By John Le Carré
The Pigeon Tunnel: Stories from My Life - John le Carré

“It strikes me now that everything that happened later in life was the consequence of that one impulsive adolescent decision to get out of England by the fastest available route and embrace the German muse as a substitute mother.”

 

Schiller’s “Die Deutsche Muse” epitomizes what I call the German Soul (taken from my own copy of the “Schiller Sämmtliche Werke” :

 

Kein Augustisch Alter blühte,

Keines Medicäers Güte

Lächelte der deutschen Kunst;

Sie ward nicht gepflegt vom Ruhme,

Sie entfaltete die Blume

Nicht am Strahl der Fürstengunst.

Von dem größten deutschen Sohne,

Von des großen Friedrich Throne

Ging sie schutzlos, ungeehrt.

Rühmend darf's der Deutsche sagen,

Höher darf das Herz ihm schlagen:

Selbst erschuf er sich den Werth.

Darum steigt in höherm Bogen,

Darum strömt in vollern Wogen

Deutscher Barden Hochgesang;

Und in eigner Fülle schwellend

Und aus Herzens Tiefe quellend,

Spottet er der Regeln Zwang

 

More than 30 years ago I also went into the world of spy fiction. It’s impossible to forget that. It happened in the worst day of my life; I was roaming my city, Lisbon, without rhyme or reason, when I found shelter in cinema Quarteto, one of my favourite movie theatres at the time. There was a spy movie cycle on. What did I watch? A lot of movies based on Le Carré’s movies. I was hooked for life. I went into the theatre and I was Alex Lamas, George Smiley, Karla, etc. for a while. I went into the obscure jungle of the Cold War with my eyes wide shut. It didn’t take long for them to open though. And they stayed open.

 

If you're into German Language and Literature, Genre Fiction, going into personal stuff, and outstanding literature, read on.

My Little Children review
My Little Children: Four Stories Unsettling, Surreal and Horrific - Keith Deininger

Odd. That's my one word description of these four unsettling, mostly supernatural tales which are low on concrete answers and high on sub-text.

Keith Deininger is a unique voice within the dark fiction/horror world and these tales are no exception. None of them really grabbed me, however, and delivered that gut punch I always hope for with any short story. All, however, are very readable and provoke deeper thought.

At 42 pages - with half the Kindle version I read dedicated to an excerpt from another Deininger novel, Ghosts of Eden - it's a very brief investment of time, and one worth it for fans of dark tales that come bereft of a neat little bow to go round them.
