"Nothing But The Night" lyrics
Augustus John Williams. About the Author. When her mother comes barging into the hospital looking for her daughter things really start to spin in weird directions. Why do you think Mary was taken away from her mother? Was she abusive? Okay, drunk then? Did she murder two people in cold blood? She served her time and apparently now collects psychic paraphernalia and sticks it in her car windows. Dors becomes the threat after a certain point in the film, but is she a murderer hunting her child or is she a red herring?
I was surprised to see it saddled with an abysmal 3. The mystery of this movie works, the tone works and the ending is actually pretty shocking.
I could see a horror fan who thinks the SAW films and Rob Zombie movies are the end all be all of horror unable to enjoy this flick, but anybody who likes this era of horror, especially British horror, should enjoy the movie. That is if they get a chance to see it. Neil LaBute tried to remake this movie with Nicolas Cage and despite giving us a great youtubed all over the world nutty Cage cut scene involving bees in his eyes what we got was a wet fart. It is kind of my ideal description of the term cult movie. He opened his mouth to speak, then closed it again, and said nothing. For at the moment he realized that this understanding which he so desired was a thing that must come from between them, inviolate and alone, unasked and unacknowledged.
And he thought for a moment that he had discovered the secret. This was the thing that drew men and women together: not the meeting of minds nor of spirits, not the conjunction of bodies in the dark insanity of copulation—none of these. It was the tenuous need to create a bond, a tie more fragile than the laciest ribbon. It was for this that they strived together, ceaselessly and always really alone; it was for this that they loved and hated, gathered and threw away. For only the little thread which they could never test for the fear of its destruction, for only the delicate thread which they could never secure for fear of breaking it in two.
I would advise not to go into this short novel expecting any of the narrative elements that are in his other two books. I read the Vintage edition published in the U. Like Liked by 1 person. I loved Stoner and Augustus. There is something just so captivating about the way Williams writes. Lovely review Melissa. The passages you quote are very striking. Like Like.

Yes, I suppose there is a certain amount of loneliness in Stoner. I have only read Stoner which is my favorite, had not heard of this one. So thank you for sharing this. It seems that all his books are very different from each other. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account.

I enjoy books in various genres, but especially literary fiction, literature in translation, historical fiction, history, short stories and travel writing and poetry. Skip to content. The vivid and startling description of his breakfast is a clue that Arthur is truly suffering: From the chipped blue plate, the egg stared up at him like a knowing, evil eye.
