New Book by Judyth Emanuel: The Yack Yack: New York Notes and Stories

New York, NY, 2022-Dec-06 — /EPR Network/ — ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to present the latest work by Judyth Emanuel: The Yack Yack: New York Notes and Stories

“I am the near miss woman owning a different reality, cursing high shelves, wandering into my own particular story, never forgetting it’s a lie that God created the world but believing something must have created the world, because the world is so intricate and beautiful. I am a woman who does not have the time to chant but then not many people do. I understand everything has its limits, ambivalence often overtakes me yet I crave the depth of a volcano, being a romanticist from the antipodes, which sounds so fine, which is Australia, an island obsessing about basketball, football, cricket, all games played with a ridiculous ball. I really think sport sucks and I have fallen in love with New York City, which I will bang on about with more and more endless amorous descriptions, being dreams pushing aside sense and structure and superego and truth and joining the dots that are really a city that is fast and incredible of noise, sugar, the absence of prayers and a great passion for the arts sounding and looking and engaging with opera being one of the arts, like The Barber of Seville cursed at first with a disastrous opening night in 1816 when the music teacher tripped over and got a nose bleed and a cat wandered on stage. Still beauty and lechery always prove a great success…” (from the Chapter I, Notes)
