Monday’s Margins: Jeanette Winterson, Italo Calvino, The Critical Flame, and more
Jeanette Winterson writing about Italo Calvino makes me very, very happy. Two of my all-time favorite authors.
There’s a new journal of literature and culture called THE CRITICAL FLAME. (Via Conversational Reading).
I want to read Matthew Pearl’s The Last Dickens after hearing his recent interview on NPR. Here I thought bookaneers were just people who like to hang out with Tina Fey.
The lovely Marie Mockett interviews Colson Whitehead over at Maud’s blog. Sag Harbor is getting terrific reviews. Colson should get a reward for being one of the smartest authors on Twitter. He really knows how to interact with readers in an engaging way.
I recently read (and LOVED) Joe Meno’s latest novel, The Great Perhaps. I got to interview him over the weekend, so watch for a forthcoming author interview published here at Identity Theory. In the meantime, you can watch Joe read from the first chapter of his book.
