Dulceaţă de lămâi

Pe un colţ de pernă sumbră,
Îmi aşez un ochi căprui,
Iar pe buzele-amărui
Pun dulceaţă de lămâi.

Vine-o poftă dintr-o dată
De un gust sărat de mare.
Ridic pleoapa şi-i zâmbesc
Unui pescăruş din zare.

Caut iarăşi să poftesc
La dulceaţa de lămâi
Deschid palmele să zboare
Pescăruşii cei dintâi.

Colţ de pernă, colţ de noapte,
Spuma valurilor toate,
Îmi transformă somnul dulce
În cuvinte aromate.

In this novel, there are waves of childlike faith, angst-ridden doubt, and more above-average intellectual conversation amongst teenagers than I have ever witnessed in real life.

While being light-years more intelligent than most teenagers, whether real or fictionalized, Vicky Austin is a fairly sympathetic

The novelist Marlon James grew up in Jamaica in the 1970s, which means he has a child’s memories of that politically turbulent and culturally fertile period. But as an adult, he keeps circling around that time and place in his mind, trying to make sense of what he could perceive only dimly then.

Out of that quest comes his third novel, “A Brief History of Seven Killings,” which begins as the optimistic glow of independence is giving way to the harsh realities of Cold War politics and the rise of gangs connected to the country’s two main political parties. From there, things get only worse: Crack cocaine appears and the gangs go international, setting up operations in Miami and New York.

“The idea for this book…
