The Quiet Ones
For me, the voices that will remain after the triumphalist clamour of the 20th century has died down are quiet ones. Here they come now -- modest, poor, self-effacing, amused, misunderstood, apologising to the noisy world around them for their shocking, helpless and habitual originality: Erik Satie, Paul Klee, and Franz Kafka. They are the whisper that outlasts a scream.

Person Of The Month
Liane Balaban
Aged 18, Liane Balaban has just played the lead in New Waterford Girls, a film directed by Allan Moyle (best-known for 'Pump Up The Volume'). This film, shot on Cape Breton, will be premiered at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival. Liane is sure to become the 21st century's answer to Audrey Hepburn and Winona Ryder. I'm a bit reluctant to share her with you, actually, but here she is. Because, as Devoto once put it, 'I desire you for ever... and everyone'.
