Joseph Matthews, author of Everyone Has Their Reasons at the Marxist School of Sacramento

Based on the historical record and told through his “letters” from German prisons, the novel begins in 1936, when fifteen-year-old Herschel flees Germany. Penniless and alone, he makes it to Paris where he lives hand-to-mouth, his shadow existence mixing him with the starving and the wealthy, with hustlers, radicals, and seamy sides of Paris nightlife.

Listen to Gabriel San Román talking about "Venceremos" on WPFW's Latino Media Collective

Gabriel San Román talks about "Venceremos" on the anniversary of the 9/11 Pinochet coup in Chile, of which Victor Jara was one of the more well known casualties, machine gunned in a soccer stadium.

“Gabriel San Román provides a thoughtful and comprehensive overview of the New Chilean Song Movement. Chile’s music of the 1960s and early 1970s was not only a milestone in Latin American popular culture, its importance transcended the strictly artistic to assume social and political significance. San Román insightfully interweaves the music’s artistic development with Chile’s tumultuous history of those years.“
—James Brennan, professor and chair of history, University of California, Riverside

Diana Block talks about Clandestine Occupations on Womens Magazine

"We talk with three women who are exploring ways to make their commitments to social justice and transformation more accessible: novelists Ellen Bravo and Diana Block and dharma teacher and musician Eve Decker.

Ellen Bravo is the author of Again and Again, which looks at the issue of date rape on college campuses, moving back and forth between 1979, when date rape was a new and little understood concept, and 2010, when the rapist is running for Senate.

Diana Block’s new novel, Clandestine Occupations, delves into the same territory as her memoir, Arm The Spirit: A Woman’s Journey Underground and BackClandestine Occupations looks at radical movements of the 1970s through the 2000s and beyond, through the eyes of five different women characters.

Eve Decker is a Buddhist teacher, singer/songwriter, and song leader.  Her new CD is In: Chants of Mindfulness and Compassion.

Listen to Ken Wishnia interviewed on Chin Wag At the Slaughterhouse

"Kenneth Wishnia is the author of numerous highly acclaimed novels, among them 23 Shades of Black (and editor of the forthcoming Jewish Noir). His work is imbued with the hybrid knowledge of Noir. An articulate narrator, he is at once both ancient and modern. Kenneth met me at The Slaughterhouse, where we talked about identity and his fictions..."—Richard Godwin, Chin Wag at the Slaughterhouse

Praise for 23 Shades of Black:

“With her sharp tongue, quick mind, and stubborn will, Filomena Buscarseal is the ultimate New Yorker: a cop, a woman, an immigrant who has made the city her own.”
—Linda Landrigan, editor of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine
