Abir Taha’s Nietzsche’s Coming God

Taha2,503 words

Abir Taha
Nietzsche’s Coming God or the Redemption of the Divine
London: Arktos, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA3,617 words

I stopped reading contemporary literature—works by living novelists and short story writers—when I was in my late teens or early twenties. I found it aesthetically and intellectually unrewarding. The sole exception was the work of journalist-turned-novelist Tom Wolfe, the Virginia-born, New York City-based founder and exponent of New Journalism, a type of feature reporting employing literary techniques.  Read more …
