Happy Reader #12 'Laurie Anderson'

Regular price £4.00

Inside: happy reader

What a double bill this issue is. First off there is a wonderful 28 page interview with avant-garde artist, composer, musician and film director Laurie Anderson. A dedicated and passionate reader, Anderson takes time out in Copenhagen to chat to Emily King about her love of reading, her hatred of actors, conquering Tristram Shandy, her work with VR and everything in between.

The second half of the magazine spins off articles from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and introduces us to 23 dreadful monsters, including virtual pets, the homunculus, The Terminator and Boris Karloff.

Expect:

A quarterly dip into bookish waters. The Happy Reader, a collaboration between Fantastic Man and Penguin Books, is one half in-depth interview with a book fanatic and one half a rediscovery of a Penguin Classic.

Highlight:

The amazing double page spread of The House of Frankenstein, a kitsch castle with bolted on burger bar in Niagara Falls.
