House of Earth by Woody Guthrie – review

Michel Faber asks if this explicit novel of poverty and sex is any more than a historic curio

In the late 1930s, having endured several brutal winters in a flimsy shack on the Texas Panhandle, Woody Guthrie invested five cents in a Department of Agriculture pamphlet called "The Use of Adobe or Sun-Dried Brick for Farm Building". The folksinger fell in love with the idea of constructing his own house from the earth on which it stood. He never fulfilled that dream, but he did turn it into a wad of fiction, undiscovered until recently and now published as House of Earth, the debut book from Infinitum Nihil, a fourth Estate imprint "helmed" by the actor Johnny Depp.

Doc Watson, Folk Music Legend, Dies At 89

Doc Watson, pioneering artist of roots-conscious Americana, dies in North Carolina hospital, according to representatives. Bob Dylan once compared the precise acoustic guitar picking of Doc Watson to "water running." Sadly, the water runs no more today. The seven-time Grammy winner, blind since infancy, died at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., according to his representatives at Folklore Productions, a management company in Santa Monica, California. Doc had undergone colon surgery Thursday. Remembered for his mountain-rooted sound and uniquely fast style of flatpicking, the National Medal of Arts recipient is survived by his wife of 66 years, Rosa Lee, his daughter, Nancy Ellen, two grandchildren, several great-grandchildren, and a brother, David.

Chad Feehan Goes Beyond the Pale

Chad Feehan Goes Beyond the Pale
Two years ago, Chad Feehan, writer / director of Wake and producer of All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, picked up the rights to an acclaimed teen horror novel. One slight problem: it was called Twilight. Nothing to do with Stephanie Meyer, this one's by William Gay, and is starting to gain traction as a movie. Feehan himself looks set to direct what's now monickered Beyond the Pale.Twi... sorry, Beyond the Pale (Wayne Hussey is sitting by the phone waiting to hear from the soundtrack producer*) is a Southern Gothic tale of a brother and sister who uncover nefarious goings on at their local funeral parlour, try to blackmail the undertaker, and pay for their temerity by getting a terminator-like ex-con set on them. What ensues is a tense, protracted chase through 1950s Tennessee.Stephen King loved it, although judging by the number of quotes he sends out for book jackets,
