Cela vs. Céline: reñida final en la copa de los miserables

Ser un miserable y cosechar por ello toneladas de desprecio público; ofender al prójimo con bajezas y alentar decididamente la matanza de judíos; ofrecerse como delator a la policía del tirano, censurar al compañero de letras para truncar su carrera y comportarse como un auténtico puerco humillando en público a las mujeres. ¿Poseer todo este catálogo de lindezas puede constituir una ventaja a la hora de escribir, de escribir bien? Afilando un poco más la pregunta, ¿ser un canalla le capacita aún más al autor a la hora de escarbar literariamente muy adentro de esa condición inseparable del hombre como lo es la ruindad? Y por esa misma razón, y de ahí puede extraerse la gran paradoja, ¿es ese miserable escarbando vilezas el que después, y gracias a su obra, se convierte (quizá sin pretenderlo) en un gran moralista al retratar en su obra sin complejos tanta bajeza? Cela, cómodamente instalado en sí mismo.

—¡Lo ha reventado un obús! Paul Bowles: una personalidad mítica. Jason Horsley nos comparte su conexión literaria y psíquica con el escritor Paul Bowles: ruminaciones inéditas que retratan un viaje de descubrimiento en el que el autor explora la personalidad del famoso escritor, fuma kif con su mentor en Tánger y cuestiona la naturaleza de la realidad.

While working in the Anchor/Doubleday art department in the 1950s, the illustrator and writer Edward Gorey discovered a long-forgotten cache of material by an earlier artist, the Krazy Kat creator George Herriman.

A Treasure Trove of Edward Gorey by Eve Bowen

These were Herriman’s original drawings for Don Marquis’s book about a poetry-writing cockroach and his cat companion, Archy and Mehitabel. In a 1999 interview with Steven Heller, Gorey recalled: I could scream now, because nobody knew they were there, and I anguished but finally took three of them…. You can’t believe how much stuff there was…you know, old bookjackets from the ’20s, the ’teens.

Nobody paid any attention to it. As Herriman’s drawings aroused Gorey’s impulse to preserve them, so the work of Gorey—who illustrated fifty-odd covers for the Anchor paperback series and would go on to create more than a hundred witty and macabre books of his own—arouses ours today. Gorey’s work tends to combine whimsically grim storylines with dour yet dancerly protagonists.

Neil Gaiman's next childrens books have been announced, and it includes some typically offbeat titles. 21st Century Tools Through the Lens of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Over this past weekend, I attended the 1st Annual Wyoming TEC Conference. TEC stands for Technology in the Evolving Classroom. During this conference, I had the fortunate opportunity to sit in on Angie Spann‘s session on 21st Century Tools. Angie is a Librarian and Media Specialist at Sweetwater School District #1.

Here is the session’s abstract, “Our students need several skills to help them learn and become productive in the 21st Century.

Now, my question is, and not to criticize this list or the authors on it, what makes these books "Books of the Decade"? I would daresay I have a vested interest in the literary world, yet some of these books are foreign to me (Glasshouse, Quicksilver, The Mount). But perhaps I don't get around enough. Others I've heard of, but have yet to read (Oryx and Crake, Rainbows End). And, like I said, this is an honest question and not a criticism. I really want to know why these books and not others. Some I understand. Let me know. @anomaly_kid: Yeah, these books are gamechangers.

Image by Jane Mount, Courtesy 20x200 Yes, we read Freedom this year and yes, it was good. As Esquire put it, it “was one great slab of a book, at a time when most books have given up on greatness.” But there were other books in 2010, books that had to compete for our ever more challenged attention spans and won. So we asked a few members of the GOOD team & some of our good colleagues which book made their best list this past year. - StumbleUpon. Book Party For One: A Loner's Summer Survival Guide. Harriet Russell Summer is a season when people get hypersocial — with barbecues and neighborhood fairs, graduations and pool parties.

In short, it's an especially trying time for those of us who'd rather stay indoors and read a book. My early summer reading list, therefore, takes the form of a loner's survival guide. The nonfiction books on this list are filled with such marvelous facts and anecdotes; they'll arm you with a supply of handy conversational tidbits should you have to socialize.

Three years ago, I invested $32,000 and the better part of two years at the University of Washington for a master's degree in International Studies. The verdict? It wasn't a complete waste of time and money. Once I accepted that 80% of the course requirements were designed to keep people busy, I enjoyed the other 20% of the work.
