About the arts and ideas - on my novels and literature, music, and art

A new book about Beethoven gathers together (and completely rewrites and supplements) my blog posts on Beethoven into a short introduction to the composer, Ways of Hearing Beethoven, which I hope to see published. My novel The Fall of the Berlin Wall, completed a year ago, is about musicians and particularly the intense, irrepressible daughter of the legendary pianist featured in my previous novel Hungry Generations, now fifteen years after those events. Five years ago, my 2015 novel, The Ash Tree, was published by West of West Books in conjunction with the April 24, 2015 centenary of the Armenian genocide; it's about an Armenian-American family and the sweep of their history in the twentieth century - particularly from the points of view of two women in the family.
There are three other novels of mine, which I would love to see published. One is Pathological States, about a physician's family in L.A. in 1962. Another is Hungry Generations, about a young composer's friendship in L.A. with the family of a virtuoso pianist, published on demand by iUniverse, which I think would be of value to a conventional publisher. A Burnt Offering - a fable (a full rewriting and expansion of my earlier Acts of Terror and Contrition - a nuclear fable) is my political novella about Israel and its reactions to the possibility of a war with Iran (with the fear that it will be a nuclear war).

Political cartoons: US Separation of children from immigrant parents - plus Trump-Putin relationship

Here is Jeanette' latest Arax political cartoon - about the Trump government's separation of children from their immigrant parents at the southern U.S. border. J's own statement:  Of all the egregious policies of the Trump administration, nothing has quite saddened me as much as children being separated from parents at our southern border.  From my perspective as a child of immigrants to America who fled the genocide in Turkey, as the mother of 3, and the grandmother of 4, this lack of humanity is truly un-American and will have effects on these children and their families that will be extremely harmful in the future to all of us.

And here are three more cartoons - one about the immigration issue and two about the Trump-Putin relationship:
