Twice I Smiled and Twice I Frowned at The Postman


The Postman Always Rings Twice is a classic noir, mystery novel by James M. Cain. First published in 1934, the book became notorious for its graphic sexual and violent scenes, thus becoming banned in Boston. It’s a fast-paced and engaging read which became the bases of several movies and the inspiration for Albert Camus’s novel “The Stranger”. Read my review about the two things I liked and the two I didn’t quite enjoy about The Postman Always Rings Twice.

Book Review: The Ascent of Feminist Poetry by Charles Bane, Jr.


If you are interested in learning more about feminist poetry while also discovering some amazing poems by various authors, then The Ascent of Feminist Poetry is the right book for you. It’s short, sweet and to the point. And if you’re anything like me, you will enjoy this book over a cup of tea in the afternoon.

I was not surprised when Charles told me that his book was excerpted by the Huffington Post. The book celebrates the new age of poetry and sheds a light on how the publishing world has change particularly for poets in times when social media influence is one of the most important assets an individual could have.

I recommend you give this book a read. You won’t regret it! Get it on Amazon now!
