The Architecture of Chance reviewed by Máighréad Medbh

In a post entitled 'Architectonics', writer and poet Máighréad Medbh considers The Architecture of Chance from multiple perspectives, discussing it against writers as disparate as Italo Calvino, Anaïs Nin, Clive James, Steven Pinker, Deleuze & Guattari and others.

The review includes several quotable extracts: "The Architecture of Chance is a cultural panorama;" or "... glows with a clear, intense, subtly reliable light;" or even "Whenever I hear or read Christodoulos Makris, I'm struck by the absence of the kind of emotional hooks that are so often demanded by an audience." But to appreciate the depth of its engagement with the book it needs to be read in its entirety.

I'm grateful to Máighréad Medbh for her interest in my work, for her attention and close reading of the book.
