Check out Nika Knight’s glowing review of Portrait of the Mother as a Young Woman over at Full Stop: “Delius crafts a symphony out of [his protagonist’s anxieties]...The effect of the book’s overall structure is stunning. The final paragraphs, an emotional coda to the crescendo before it, bring us the text’s first and last period. The thousands of preceding commas, echoing Margherita’s thousands of steps, have lent this sudden full stop an astonishing impact. A single piece of punctuation has, it seems, never held such power.”
Friends of the High Line co-founders Joshua David and Robert Hammond sit down with Interview magazine to discuss the genesis of the High Line, an elevated park that runs along abandoned freight lines on Manhattan’s west side.
“The experience of being up on this amazing structure and seeing the city from this very special vantage point—that was the base element of everything we were trying to do,” says David.
