Donald Newlove con Tales of Lost Jamestown (Handbook of the Soul for Writers and Readers 6)
“I write to make you aware of the many landscapes and layers of time you walk through daily in your home town,” Newlove states. Tales of Lost Jamestown offers a stage version of In Search of Lost Jamestown and features four actors: Sarita Weeks, J. Ralph Carlson, Lucille Ball, and Donald Newlove who at times band into a Greek Chorus SARITA: If you want to write about Lost Jamestown, all you have left are your feelings for the ever disappearing real Jamestown where once you bought chocolates at Betty Dixon’s on Third.CHORUS: What you have left now is a mythical Jamestown—a flow of figures in a dream.J. RALPH CARLSON: The Kaffestugan sign creaking in that chill hard blast—don’t you remember?—the tubs of pickled herring and Swedish meatballs? The steamy big iced windows when you first shared a table with Becky Nordstrom, now here from Oslo and bright-eyed and snappy from having dumped her husband? DONALD: She had such rough-spoken and all-knowing humor. She might turn a guy down three times but he’d crawl back and still beg for a date. She was my age but five years older—and that girl was one lush force field of magnetic particles! Well, fresh from Sweden’s nude beaches, what do you expect?
