John Elliott (1938 - 2017)

Those familiar with the Chômu Press list might have read one or two of the works of John Elliott.

Yesterday I received news that he had died earlier this week. No one in my acquaintance could talk literature like John after (or before) a few drinks. I put his Human Pages among my top one hundred books in the list I have been slowly compiling. I post here an interview I did with John almost six years ago. Please feel free to download it:

I talk about John from 9.34 to 12.11 in this video:


If I feel able, I might write a longer tribute.

Re: John Elliott (1938 - 2017)

"Exhausted, she fell back on the pillow. Agnes's hand rested on hers. Its weight was almost too much to bear, yet she took comfort from the knowledge that his name had been on both their lips.

"From then on the die was cast, cast forever. Some other hand Sula could not see had spilled the dice free from their shaker. Patiently, she waited for their roll to cease. Hands, she thought, hands that once might have been folded in prayer. A deck of cards fanned out before her on the green baize of the bedclothes. Surely, they must realise she lacked the power or concentration to pick them up; especially when the dice still rolled and rolled."

Human Pages, John Elliott
