J'aime les comparaisons. Elles m'aident à supporter les hommes.
Si je n'avais pas le recours d'écrire qu'ils sont comme "ceci" ou comme "cela", c'est-à-dire de rendre leur stupidité indubitable, je ne les supporterais plus depuis longtemps. Qui n'aime pas châtie mieux.
New Englanders know that cranberries are not for holidays alone.
For centuries, this tart fruit--a staple in the Yankee diet since before it was domesticated--has reigned over the cranberry heartland of Barnstable and Plymouth Counties, Massachusetts. Dozens of recipes that utilize the "humble fruit" have risen up over the years, the most popular being cranberry sauce, which one imaginative New Englander paired with lobster. The popularity of the berry exploded in the 1840s, and despite occasional setbacks such as the great pesticide scare of 1959, demand continues to rise to this day. Authors Robert S. Cox and Jacob Walker trace the evolution of cranberry culture in the Bay State, exploring the delectable history of this quintessential New England industry.

Bus Station: Unbound is a fable about about finding yourself in-between places and times, an interactive fiction where the narrative decisions lie in your own hands and a grown-up "Choose your own adventure" like none you've ever read before. If you like Tales of the Unexpected, Twin Peaks and Welcome to Night Vale, you'll love this. You're heading home for Christmas. There’s a snowstorm, the roads are gridlocked and you’re stranded in a bus station known as the North’s most monstrous building.
People here are behaving strangely.
A group of teenagers seem to have vanished into thin air. Your parents' marriage is on the rocks. The whole town is traumatised and grieving and snow falls and falls like it will never stop. Outside the church bells are ringing… Bus Station: Unbound is the first in a trilogy of fully interactive novels from Curious Tales, one which tracks your journey and presents different moods, characters, genres and styles depending on the choices you make.
Is this a satire about an iconic building under threat from a short-sighted council, a horror story about infernal retribution and the tyranny of choice or a tale of guilt, home, grief and forgetfulness? You decide. Read, remix and play again. CURIOUS TALES is an author-led publishing collective.
