Back on my theme of authors whose work never seems to come here, let me shine my light on Raphael Henry.

His tales are a mixture of sweet and unsettling. His settings very real. The boys have unusual names, but are very relatable to.

Funny you should mention this author right now. I started reading "Robbie" a few days ago. I've read and enjoyed a couple of his other works as well.

Thanks for shining that light. I just read Johnny the Gardener, an absolutely beautiful story. 



Consider becoming vegan. It's good for your health. It's kind and respectful to other animals. It's a good way to make an individual gesture towards averting the climate crisis. It's easy - if a lazy degenerate like me can do it, anyone can.

Yes, I have enjoyed his tales and agree they are at once sweet and unsettling. As is life. In this regard I appreciate his work a great deal.
