Alex Ross: The Rest Is Noise Book in progress

In recent years I have made various claims to the effect that I am writing a book called Wagnerism. Above is photographic evidence demonstrating that I have, indeed, produced a considerable pile of paper imprinted with words, although skeptics might wonder whether any given page of the manuscript contains nothing more than typographically varied repetitions of the sentence “All work and no play makes Jack an ambivalent boy.” I have completed a very rough draft of thirteen out of fifteen chapters. Hitler is dead, and the story is therefore winding down. Taking a first pass at the manuscript is Minnie, who steps into the role once filled by my dearly missed feline assistants Penelope and Maulina.
Previously: 2001: A Single-Spaced Odyssey, Another book.

The gravestone of former Joy Division frontman
Ian Curtis was stolen. Cheshire Police said his memorial stone was taken from where he is buried in Macclesfield Cemetery. Officers were appealing for anyone with information on its whereabouts, detectives said the stone, had the inscription Ian Curtis 18 – 5 – 80 and the words Love Will Tear Us Apart.
