Looking back, this may be a little bit of an exaggeration. I did have some ideas of the kind of story I wanted to tell. I’d seen Turkmenistan mentioned in a number of books and I’d seen a number of news articles about the country, but because most Westerners can only get a two week […]

The Boston Globe on Sunday had a great roundup by Carlo Wolff of graphic novels and amongst the books reviewed, David B’s Nocturnal Conspiracies: “Teeming with animals, corrupt politicians, alluring women, his own malleable consciousness and other shape shifts, this scans like a dream.” And Miss Don’t Touch Me: “A more orthodox piquancy infuses Miss […]
