  • Group Dynamics: World Cup Profiles, vol. iii
    rather like the coffee Revel that promises little and may deliver only a little over that Argentina have a forward line as sharp as a Lakeland set of stainless steel knives and a defence as leaky as a Poundland sieve Nigeria are chasing former glories whilst Bosnia and Herzegovina s history has yet to be written Argentina have the world s finest attacking player in Lionel Messi a diminutive homunculus whose runs with the football resemble the outline of Norway s western coastline or a wayward dribble of sick on a baby s bib Either way they have an incantatory rhythm that renders opposition defenders frozen like popsicles left in a Tierra del Fuegan freezer Combined with the more direct Angel di Maria on the opposite wing they give Argentina one of the World Cup s most awesome attacking forces When you add two of the world s best strikers in Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain to the delicious uncooked pancake mix it becomes clear that Argentina will be difficult to stop That s just as well too because with their defence they will struggle to stop anyone from scoring themselves This is Bosnia and Herzegovina s first World Cup Their path through qualifying was as calm and reassuring as an Adriatic breeze though results told only a fraction of the tale They scored over 30 goals in 10 qualifying games attacking teams with all the fervour of Alan Titchmarsh approaching an erotic novel Spearheaded by Manchester City s Edin Dzeko Bosnia are more D H Lawrence than Mills and Boon though attacking midfielder Miralem Pjanić has a good deal more elegance than Walter Morel They will be helped by the fact that they are still somewhat of a little known quantity though not for much longer Winners of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013 Nigeria arrive in Brazil with more hope filling their sails than has been since the halcyon days of 1998 and the golden generation of Jay Jay Okocha Taribo West and co Once regarded as the Kings of African football and the country most likely to bring the continent its first World Cup Nigeria have fallen by the wayside in recent years it s been a John Steinbeck journey rather than a fantastical trip to the centre of the earth Their main player is John Obi Mikel of Chelsea who resembles a somewhat soporific crab for his club side but transforms into a vibrant threat when his country comes calling Nevertheless great expectations may need to be revised there s no Mr Jaggers in Group F Iran are probably best known as an international side for France 1998 when they faced the USA in the group stages in a battle of metaphorical diplomatic détente It may sound patronising but they are simply happy to be here and in Carlos Queiroz formerly of Manchester United they have a sharp brained tactician capable of plotting at least one minor upset Prediction 1 Argentina 2 Bosnia and Herzegovina

  • Alone in Paris
    maintaining a casual pace and taking small swigs of wine Watching the couples stride by holding hands a practice that as of late you think should be illegal at least on tiny sidewalks and in the presence of single people Along the Left Bank overlooking La Seine you hear a jazz band playing You look down and see large groups of friends with wine and cheese and all sorts of French clichés enjoying the music and soft air of the last night of August You have purpose now And with purpose added to the mix the music is soothing and the wine tastes good and it s nice to be alone along this river so far from home with nothing but rambling thoughts and a dream of the Eiffel Tower After losing yourself in the rhythms of your own feet you look down at your watch It is now 9 42 and you re not even half way there How sad it would be to go all that way and miss the lights But if you re going to have any shot at making it before ten you know you need to run So you begin to jog You played high school basketball They even made you run cross country one year You were the fifth best runner on the team But this is the first time you ve mixed wine drinking and exercise so it will be a challenge no doubt You jog past a well lit café where scholarly types sip tiny cups of coffee and lovely long legged ladies wrap their smooth fingers around big bellied glasses of merlot all of them cross legged on the terrace watching the street as though at some undetermined moment a movie will begin They watch you as you glide past in a well paced jog There are other joggers out this late and plenty of drinkers but you appear to be the only one doing both They must admire your versatility you think It is now 9 50 and you need a break You have just past Musée d Orsay and you estimate that you re still a twenty minute walk from the Eiffel Tower You have a swig of wine and wish it was water You wonder if Jesus could turn wine back into water and you think that that would be a much more Christian thing to do It s 9 52 and a sudden burst of energy surges through you You sprint You run across avenues and exceptionally wide streets even when the little green man refuses his approval The hell with the little green man you think he only walks when there s no threat of danger He s a coward He never would have come to Paris alone You have five minutes to get there and you wonder why you are the only one on the street running Don t they know Don t they know it s going to sparkle You can see it

  • About Monsieur
    He hadn t the courage to speak to her a stranger Nor had I But Sutcliffe and Durrell himself it seemed knew how to approach what they admired In Venice strange atmospheres are routine Life becomes a masquerade alluring and dangerous It is not a city to take lightly Nor is the Nile merely a river It is a god commanding respect Sailing the Nile in the right frame of mind is itself an initiation The attraction of Gnostic mysteries so prevalent in the New Age culture of our times is a rebellion against the West s materialism The reality of here and now is but one reality among many That is the feeling behind Monsieur In life there is a darkness to be encountered We cannot ignore it any more than we can ignore the immanence of death We are encompassed by death We are as living beings defined by our ephemeral nature Monsieur begins with a death and the arrangements for a requiem Or rather it begins with a journey towards a requiem The narrator takes the southbound train from Paris a journey he had made from time immemorial It was that phrase in the first sentence that made me want to read on Sometimes it may seem that we have made such a journey following in the path of previous family members say And there are the journeys we have made for ourselves over the years But to speak of time immemorial is to place the event outside the course of ordinary living and into a metaphysical realm beyond time and space as we imperfectly understand them Were we to understand fully what this means then we would have a sense of Gnosis of knowledge of the unknowable This is what they seek in Monsieur a means of comprehending unfathomable realities like love and death Gnostic cults of which there were many in medieval Provence proved to be a dead end for me They were not people asking questions of life but rather they were offering all too easy answers in formulae that did not surrender to reasoned examination I think one is supposed to surrender to the experience That is a dangerous conceit opening up oneself to all manner of manipulations In reading we do not surrender we engage our minds and our senses in ways that can enlarge our imaginative sympathies That is why I have not replaced my battered copy of Monsieur It has a character if not a spirit that belongs to the book I found and took home and have not been parted from The age old Provencal culture which retains its presence and its vitality is something I owe to reading Lawrence Durrell The book was the first of a series but it remains the only one of the Avignon Quintet I have read I don t know if I ever shall read the others There seems so much in the first Re reading it I am drawn back emotionally and

  • Independent Writers: They Did It Their Way
    Orwell wrote almost the world we live in Nineteen Eighty Four probably his most famous work He also penned Animal Farm and Down and Out in Paris and London which gave lovely insights and opinions on society capitalism politics and a whole lot more whilst of course remaining a splendid read and rather funny even today Irvine Welsh You might wonder how we ve jumped from Orwell to Welsh quite dramatic really However Welsh wrote Trainspotting the book that changed the way we view literature This book said it s ok to write about drug addicts and violence in a way that s entertaining and enjoyable to readers everywhere Welsh decided to make the characters likeable to create emotions within us that we probably wouldn t feel for a drug addict that decided to walk into our life and start to change our world Phillip Roth American writer Roth as been around since the late 50 s and can be seen to have a postmodern approach to his work Using this he writes about anything he wishes with wit and irreverent humour He has released titles such as The Breast the story of a man who wakes up and is a breast on a woman s chest Roth also covers his integration into American society from his Jewish background making his fiction hugely autobiographical at times Quentin Tarentino Tarentino has brought us gems like Pulp Fiction Jackie Brown and Kill Bill It might seem a bit strange ending with Tarnetino but his work has changed the way we view world cinema and has most likely influenced writers everywhere Keith Hodges About Litro Online Mail Web More Posts 713 Comments comments Prev Tour de France Next Too much of what you fancy Related Posts Apprenticeship Part Two National Flash Fiction Day this Saturday Claire Fuller Our Endless Numbered Days Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge A feeling A state of mind Or is home actually to be found in another human being maybe your partner your parents How do you know when you have found it Continue reading Contact Us General 44 0 20 3371 9971 info litro co uk Sales Advertising enquiries 44 0 20 3371 9971 Email Sales Magazine Editorial editor litro co

  • Romance in Paris
    that women aren t wooed like they used to be and that the world has changed every one is trying to cram as much in as they can forgetting those around them It takes the journey back to the hotel to realise that romance can come in different ways That girl texting as her boyfriend looks up is still sharing something It seems still that every book has a love story Richard Milward writes tales of love that span up and down a tower block in Ten Storey Love Song Alright it s not a typical love story but what is these days There are girly books obviously Sophie Kinsella writes vigorously about typical women in every day situations stumbling into full blown relationships and back out again You smile awkwardly at the guard He has a huge grin on his face probably because he knows what you ve just found out The lift is out of order so you re walking six flights of stairs On the walk you think about all the books you ve read over the last year and how romance plays apart in so much of these Fair enough you read books about gay gangsters and drug addicts but they all have that element of romance they all have a character longing for that someone who ll appear on the next page Romance is a bit more creative these days romance isn t a trip to Paris and a sparkling Eiffel Tower romance to you is wanting to be with that person through thick and thin and sharing Sunday morning scrambled eggs with them You reach your door and slip in quietly smiling as you see the Eiffel Tower glisten in the distance from your window He s there he beat you back and there are rose petals everywhere Will you marry me He laughs Very original You say waiting for the horse Keith Hodges About Litro Online Mail Web More Posts 713 Comments comments Prev Don t Beat Yourself Up Anton the Destroyer by Andrew Pidoux Next In France Nation of Beauty Related Posts Twins by Laura Solomon Short Stories The Last Girlfriend On Earth by Simon Rich Night of Falling Stars Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge

  • Tour de France
    get your imagination flowing A little further down the route is the stage between Dinan and Lisieux that has a selection of architectural delights such as an old Gothic church that would be more than at home playing the part of an extra in Dracula Further on in the race is Aurillac which hosts the Aurillac Street Theatre Festival a celebration of everything colourful and fun With entertainment for everyone there s sure to be a character you can take on board and turn into the next big serial killer or the one man to save the human race from the octo baby that was spawned when Jupitar and Saturn collided on a windy day The festival is sought after by promoters and companies world wide and almost acts as a Cannes for those with an interest in live theatre The final destination on the route that I d like to share is Montpellier on the South coast Montpellier is littered with festivals of dance and arts but also has a back garden that leads out on to the Mediterranean Sea If you re on your bike having a stern pedal along and the sun starts to set over the sea then have a look you ll probably be writing until the next stage starts Obviously I ve only mentioned a tiny fraction of what s on view for inspiration during the Tour de France all you need to do is become a professional cyclist and go visit them or just check them out Up to you Keith Hodges About Litro Online Mail Web More Posts 713 Comments comments Prev NaNoWriMo Here We Go Again Next Independent Writers They Did It Their Way Related Posts In Their Footsteps Daphne du Maurier s Cornwall About Monsieur Kasper Meier Writing Away from Home Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge A feeling A state of mind Or is home actually to be found in another human being maybe your partner your parents How do you know when you have found it Continue reading Contact Us General 44 0 20 3371 9971 info litro co uk Sales Advertising enquiries 44 0 20 3371 9971 Email Sales Magazine Editorial editor litro co uk All Online Editorial online litro co
