Stephen King: Tax Me, for F@%&’s Sake!

Chris Christie may be fat, but he ain’t Santa Claus. In fact, he seems unable to decide if he is New Jersey’s governor or its caporegime, and it may be a comment on the coarsening of American discourse that his brash rudeness is often taken for charm.

La goleada literaria de Francia y la nueva Anna Karenina del cine >> Papeles Perdidos

El mundo editorial se tambalea con la llegada del libro electrónico, pero la irreductible República Francesa resiste: en su geografía se cuentan 2.500 librerías y entre 2003 y 2011 las ventas de libros se incrementaron en un 6,5 por ciento. Mientras tanto, en el Reino Unido pelean para detener el sacrificio de libros en la Biblioteca Central de Manchester, en Israel se indignan por la negativa de Alice Walker a permitir la publicación de El color púrpura y en Colombia celebran los 50 años de un libro que hizo historia.

Codex Gigas: Devil's Bible or Just an Old Book? “La literatura latinoamericana ya ha alcanzado la mayoría de edad” Santiago Gamboa (Bogotá, 1965) no quiere que lo lean por ser colombiano –“como yo no leo a Malraux por francés ni a Tabucchi por italiano”--, ni cree que para escribir una buena novela haya que salirse de los senderos ya marcados de la literatura: "Dice el maestro Fernando Botero que nunca ha dado una pincelada que no esté autorizada por la historia del arte.

“La literatura latinoamericana ya ha alcanzado la mayoría de edad”

Y lo que él dice refiriéndose a la pintura lo intento aplicar yo a mis novelas: me gusta que los temas que elijo estén autorizados de alguna manera por la historia de la literatura". De ahí que su última novela, Plegarias nocturnas (Mondadori), trate de dos personas que desean estar juntas a toda costa –en este caso dos hermanos— y de la multitud de problemas que se lo impiden.

Feria del Libro de Madrid. Frankfurt Book. THE COMPOSITES. Casting Study: Miami Blues For the first in this series of comparing character descriptions against actors in adaptations, The Composites will look at Miami Blues, the 1984 novel by Charles Willeford and the 1990 film starring Alec Baldwin.

THE COMPOSITES

Charles Willeford was unique among crime writers. His novels defied the conventions of the genre with naturalistic pacing, droll wit, and a melancholic worldview. During an exile from crime writing, Willeford self-published experimental poetry and memoir, including a book-length account of his hemorrhoidectomy, before returning to the genre with his Hoke Moseley series, the first of which is Miami Blues. Fresh out of prison and on a spree at the beginning of the novel, Junior Frenger is an engagingly rational sociopath who decides to settle down in suburban Miami—not to retire, but to rob his new neighbors while posing as Detective Moseley.

Gift guide for the book lover by Ellie on Etsy. UbuWeb. On Snobbery and Books for Grown-Ups.

Not the whole thing, I'll tell myself, reaching for the ruined paperback. One chapter, a favourite passage, then I'll wedge it back in with those books begun but not yet finished; the dozens more bought or inherited that I honestly mean to open, sooner to get to all of Dickens. I'm a chronic rereader, mostly of novels, and it is a habit as coiled with guilt as it is with pleasure, because every go-round with a favourite is also another time I haven't read Bleak House.
