Table and Teaser
Autonomia’s October 2022 table of contents and November’s articles teaser
Autonomia’s monthly roundup and preview becomes Table and Teaser. The heading reflects a current month’s table of contents and coming month’s teaser of new articles.
October’s table of contents features:
Two articles of a three-part series about this summer’s assassination attempt on Salman Rushdie. The first part details the writer Rushdie, Islamic dictatorship Iran’s history including its death sentence on the artist and the mystic who sentenced Salman Rushdie to death.
Part two of my Salman Rushdie report delves deeper into Iran’s conflict, the Valentine’s Day death decree—including its impact on the free press, free speech, the publishing industry, bookstores and August’s assassination attempt.
Wednesday with Greta Garbo: a review of Miss Garbo’s film The Painted Veil about a sexualized woman in pre-Communist China who marries an infectious disease doctor. The film’s based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham.
An account of my recent stay at downtown Pittsburgh’s hotel geared to honor capitalism, particularly the industrialist. This Points in Pittsburgh piece provides a glimpse of the Industrial Revolution and architectural history within a hospitality critique. Read the review.
Teasing November’s articles
Next month, Autonomia’s third and final part reports on what’s known about Salman Rushdie’s condition as well as the historical context and what one can reasonably anticipate might happen given America’s response to the assassination attempt on Rushdie in New York. This article examines U.S. appeasement of Islamic terrorism and Iran’s goal to acquire nuclear weaponry to destroy the West.
Enjoy another Wednesday with Greta Garbo as I review Garbo’s volatile film, The Kiss. Also, read an extensive review of a Ken Burns documentary about writer Ernest Hemingway.
