Monday’s Margins: Remnick on Havel; Christopher Hitchens; Gifts for Writers and Readers

Vaclev Havel has died. David Remnick composed a top-ten reading list of Vaclev Havel and Beyond — non-fiction prose writers such as Vaclav Havel who “lived, and wrote, within the truth.”

Also gone and not to be forgotten: Christopher Hitchens. Robert Birnbaum says “Good Bye, Hitch.”

According to Galleycat, “The Best Gift You Can Give a Writer is Time.”

And, BookRiot lets you in on “A Book Gift That Should Not Be Forgotten.”

Finally, The Rumpus reviews Jim Harrison’s latest poetry collection, Songs of Unreason.
