About ‘On Vinyl’
‘On Vinyl’ is a love letter to vinyl and an exploration of the role nostalgia plays in the decisions we make. When Lenny opens a second-hand record store in Toronto, it’s the realization of a dream, and a welcome break from the chaos at home, where developers—and his landlord—are determined to push him out.
Unfortunately, Lenny’s store isn’t much more stable than his home life. Rent is sky-high, and sales are sporadic. Some days, he’s run off his feet while other days, smashing unwanted records is the only way to pass the time.
When he finds an old press release tucked away in the sleeve of a record, the discovery launches Lenny into his next quest: to track down the long-lost record collection of Hot Walter, an elusive and aging disco DJ, and maybe, just maybe, save the store.
Fictional biography of a disturbed performance artist
Julia Maarten’s a mess: she’s running out of inheritance money, failing out of art school, and haunted by the ghost of her depressed mother. And then there’s the compulsive nose-picking thing…
When Julia meets a group of radical feminist performance artists in a Brussels squat, she is convinced by their political perspective and enchanted by their counter-cultural lifestyle. But has she found her tribe… or lost her mind?
‘FLEM,’ by newcomer Rebecca Rosen, takes the reader on a colour-coded journey into the dark heart of the “other” Brussels by way of a damaged young woman’s inflamed nasal canal.
