What you (may have) missed on 3:AM this week:
Reviewed: Stewart Home on Iain Sinclair‘s Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire, Kate Picard on Paul Lester‘s The Gang of Four: Damaged Gods & Mat Colegate on the Andrew Stevens edited anthology Love Hotel City
Interviewed: Lee Rourke spoke to Bird Room author Chris Killen
Non-Fiction: an essay on Crusader Guy by Thomas Sullivan, James A. Reeves looked at Religion in America & Darran Anderson debuted Van Gogh’s Ear, his new poetry column for 3:AM, taking in Rimbaud‘s A Season in Hell:
The aim of this column is not to analyse or theorise but to revisit the other poetry, beyond the laureates, professorships and wine and cheese receptions; the glorious scumbags, the disgrace-fuelled vandals and deviants, the unloved step-children under the stairs and the mad aunts locked in the literary attic. Step forward then Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, the Adam and Steve of alt-poetry.
