What does your bookshelf say about you? Preface: The War Against Cliche by Martin Amis. At one time, "Literature and Society" was a phrase so much on everyone's lips that it earned itself an abbreviation: Lit & Soc.

Preface: The War Against Cliche by Martin Amis

And Lit & Soc, I seemed to remember, had been for me a long-running enthusiasm. When complacently preparing my new collection of essays and reviews, The War Against Cliché, I planned to assemble my pieces on literature and society (pieces on FR Leavis and Lionel Trilling, and on lesser figures like Ian Robinson and Denis Donoghue).

Les livres de l'année que nous avons préférés

Ça commence sur son cadavre rongé par les vers dans un hôtel miteux, rempli de putes et de drogués. Le cadavre de Valerie Solanas, celle qui tira sur Andy Wahrol quelques mois après avoir écrit SCUM Manifesto, l'un des textes les plus importants du XXème siècle - et pas seulement pour le féminisme. Le livre de Sara Stridsberg avait tout pour me déplaire : c'est une biographie, romancée de surcroît, d'une personne à qui je voue un culte (pas touche !). Mais non. Xmas reading list. An Essay on Criticism. 'Tis hard to say, if greater Want of Skill Appear in Writing or in Judging ill, But, of the two, less dang'rous is th' Offence, To tire our Patience, than mis-lead our Sense: Some few in that, but Numbers err in this, Ten Censure wrong for one who Writes amiss; A Fool might once himself alone expose, Now One in Verse makes many more in Prose.
