Babylon Confidential by Claudia Christian
Babylon Confidential by Claudia Christian
I really enjoyed this book. I'm not a celebrity memoir type of guy - I think I only bought this because, like many people, I never quite came to terms with the end of Babylon 5. Even though it doesn't even spend 2 chapters on the B5 experience, Claudia is sort of impossible not to like (I met her once at a signing at the Birmingham NEC several years ago and lost the ability to form a coherent sentence - I didn't think people could actually have that effect). The book wasn't what I expected, but I certainly wasn't disappointed.

It opens with a beautiful song about airports (that puts me in mind of the film Love Actually). The words 'beautiful' and 'airports' in the same sentence - that takes some skill to realise. The ascension continues thereafter.

I loved the last album (Age Of Miracles) but it took some time to grow on me. This just hits the spot from the start. I find it difficult to get past each track - there's just so much to drink in. It's a perfect combination of music and poetry, the intuitive use of pace to give each song its life is wonderful. For example, the seeming mundanity of tasks in 'What to keep and what to throw away' reveals itself to be the passage of time condensed into… Read more
