Livros De 2005: 'uncut'


Recommended Posts

A revista Uncut, na sua última edição, continua a publicação das listas dos melhores do ano. Entre elas, a que destaca os melhores livros de 2005. Em primeiro lugar surge Lunar Park, o mais recente romance de Brett Easton Ellis (já com tradução portuguesa), um mergulho ficcionado na primeira pessoa de que já aqui demos notícia no Sound + Vision. A lista, como é hábito numa revista que aborda a música, o cinema e as letras, está também atenta à não-ficção, e destaca ainda títulos fundamentais como Rip It Up And Start Again de Simon Reynolds, a cartilha do pós-punk ou The Story Of Film, do crítico de cinema Mark Cousins (já tradiuzida entre nós).
