    One more delightful issue. I really enjoyed the interview with Grimes (it sent me searching for the Hardcore History podcast immediately!) and the second part about Zola and Paris and fashion kept me interested even though I'm far from a fashion enthusiast.

    Atkal jau pārsteigums uzzināt, cik daudz domu ir Grimes galvā, bet otrā daļa par "Dāmu paradīzes" tēmu - īsts saldēdiens. "Whoever said that money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping." (Bo Derek)

    Picked up at Shakespeare & Co in Paris to enjoy on my plane ride back to the US. I intermittently read this issue in between readjusting to American life and school--so glad I read it through! I loved Grimes' interview and the other collection of interviews and opinion pieces, great magazine that I would purchase again. Some of my favorite lines from Grimes' interview: "I also hate the hard-line vegan shit. If everyone only ate meat once a week, that would be better than twenty people being vega Picked up at Shakespeare & Co in Paris to enjoy on my plane ride back to the US.

Some of my favorite lines from Grimes' interview: "I also hate the hard-line vegan shit. If everyone only ate meat once a week, that would be better than twenty people being vegan, you know?" "All the greats, they've always been misunderstood and appropriated incorrectly." "it's the tortured white-dude art that is often the bad art that is always revered." "Feigning confidence is the number one important thing. Never express weakness."

    The winter issue of The Happy Reader follows the tried & tested formula. The front half is an interview with a famous (non literary) person (ok I have to admit I've never heard of this quarter's interviewee the musician Grimes...). The back half are short articles riffing off a book (this time Zola's 'Au Bonheur Des Dames). The best one being someone who follows in the footsteps of George Orwell by being a 'plongeur' in a French department store. This quarterly is exceptionally good value...if y The winter issue of The Happy Reader follows the tried & tested formula.

    I really appreciate the inception of these simple, yet beautiful, little magazines. It dropped a star this issue purely because the Grimes interview wasn't really "bookish" and didn't grab me. I'd never heard of her and when I looked her up on you tube I was left thinking "is that it? Is this what's classed as 'musical genius' these days?" I am aware this makes me sound everyone one of my 47 years but you can't have everything, can you.
