“Stewart Home maybe my favorite London novelist in the 21st Century, and I am saying ‘maybe’ because i haven’t read every novel by him…. yet.  But nevertheless his new novel “Mandy, Charlie, and Mary-Jane” is a superb piece of work.” Read Tosh Berman’s full review here!

Tosh Berman’s father Wallace Berman edited the legendary Semina magazine which inspired beat novelist Alex Trocchi’s Sigma publications (and Home’s first novel Pure Mania was published by Polygon in 1989 in their Sigma series inspired by Trocchi – so what goes around comes around). “The Semina Gang – writers drinking coffee and juice” at Alcove Cafe & Bakery on Hillhurst Avenue, Los Angeles, CA on 4 March 2013.
