Nina Antonia at The Atlantis Bookshop 8/13/22

Nina Antonia at The Atlantis Bookshop
Saturday 13th August from 7pm

We are delighted to be able to host the author Nina Antonia this coming weekend.  We featured her book, Dancing with Salome, in a January Friday Favourite during lockdown and now have the chance to welcome her to the Shop.  Her book features a series of interlinking essays which take the reader on a journey to meet the Decadent demi-monde of the 1890’s with whom Wilde and Douglas mingled. Whilst eroticism and mysticism were key themes of the Decadents, there was also a surge of interest in ritual magic, enabled by the flowering of the “Golden Dawn” – the most significant esoteric order in England’s history. Wilde’s wife, Constance, was a member, as was W.B. Yeats, alongside Aleister Crowley and Arthur Machen. All would play a part, directly or indirectly, in the drama of Oscar Wilde’s enchanted & accursed life.

Although this is a free event, please be kind enough to RSVP (LINK BELOW) to help us plan the logistics of the evening.

If you are unable to attend but would still like an inscribed copy, please order it below using the link (LINK BELOW), and send us an email with the message you would like incorporated.

Gillian McCain in our Johnny Thunders shirt!

A big thank you to Gillian McCain, co-collaborator of ‘Please Kill Me’, pictured here in her brand new Johnny Thunder’s tee. Gillian’s hot pink shoes are something Johnny would probably have approved of! The t-shirt features photographs I took of Johnny whilst working on his authorised biography ‘In Cold Blood’ and was designed by Cutesy Badass Productions. You too could wear Johnny close to your heart, just like Gillian. Whether you sport a jaunty hat is optional. This commemorative t-shirt is being promoted because I have developed mobility issues and need to get some apparatus to make life less painful & easier to get around. I didn’t want to do ‘Go Fund Me’ worthy as it is. The tee really is a limited edition & made of good quality cotton. Whatever the weather you’ll always be cool in a Johnny Thunders tee-shirt, now available here: https://etsy.me/3Q7ZZrq

‘Lunar Moths’ Wormwoodiana Review

Godfrey Brangham reviews Nina Antonia’s ‘Lunar Moths’ for Wormwoodiana.

Lunar Moths

‘Lunar Moths’ is a collection of verses dedicated to the ephemeral nature of life’s fly by nights. In folklore, little white moths represented the souls of unbaptized children, unable to settle any place for long they flutter haplessly through night’s tributaries. The theme of the Lost Soul, those who drift on the midnight tide, briefly glittering and often seductive is of little real value. Modern life is rather too robust for their slender if memorable gifts, from Jean Seberg to Denny Fouts, to Johnny Thunders, they are ghosts in daylight, rubbing shoulders with Chatterton reborn at sunset in Euston Station. All creative people have refrains they return to, ‘Lunar Moths’ is a collection of Nina’s poems. Lunar Moths is £6 plus shipping and handling. For availability/purchase, please email Nina through her website https://ninaantoniaauthor.com/contact/  or contact the publisher at theblacklightenginedriver@hotmail.co.uk

Rendering Unconscious with Dr. Vanessa Sinclair and Nina Antonia

Nina Antonia is here to discuss her new book Dancing with Salomé: Courting the Uncanny with Oscar Wilde & Friends. Dancing with Salomé unmasks the occult aspects of Oscar Wilde’s celebrated tome The Picture of Dorian Gray, whilst exploring how the unseen manifested not just in the famous author’s life but in that of his love interest, Lord Alfred Douglas. Through a series of interlinking essays, Nina Antonia takes us to meet the Decadent demi-monde of the 1890’s with whom Wilde and Douglas mingled. Whilst eroticism and mysticism were key themes of the Decadents, there was also a surge of interest in ritual magic, enabled by the flowering of the “Golden Dawn.” Wilde’s wife, Constance, was a member, as was W.B. Yeats, alongside Aleister Crowley. All would play a part, directly or indirectly, in the drama of Oscar Wilde’s enchanted & accursed life. store.trapart.net/details/00178
