I feel like literary awards season just ended, but it's starting up again. Here's the long list for the 2010 Booker. I haven't read any of them, but I'm sure they're wonderful.
How old is the novel really? Could be much, much older than we think.
While we're on the subject of ignoring wills, a bunch more Kafka manuscripts will be released, even though he stated in his will to have his work destroyed.
Russian youth poetry club or Russian militant training ground? Or both. You decide.
Finally, here are some fake, literary missed connections posted on Craigslist, then reposted on a blog with actual, real responses. Fun for everyone.
Have a great weekend, all.
