I purchased this book on the strength of an interesting article in the Guardian books section - [...] It did a great service into illuminating the book for me.

I have not read Nilsen's previous book about the death of his partner so came to this one without many ideas of what I'd find. If I'm completely honest, I expected more content. What there is to be found is very interesting, some of it moving, some futile and some beautiful. It certainly has no pretense.

What I really felt is that this book is for Nilsen, not the reader. And that's ok, there are many books that are meant to be read as if looking into a life. I did not so much feel like I was intruding but… Read more
Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish by David Rakoff

Wall Mount Microphone Holder by Electrovision
Wall Mount Microphone Holder by Electrovision
4.0 out of 5 stars Works as it should, 26 Sep 2013
Bought this holder to attach to a set which needed a microphone easily accessed and it worked well. We used an SM58 mic and it's held by the globe of the mic, the holder isn't snug enough to make it hold on the barrel. You could wrap LX tape round the barrel if this is an issue. It comes in two parts so you can attach the mic holder at four different angles which would be useful if you're short on space. Overall it's a relatively cheap solution for attaching a mic to a wall.
