The Linksecution Channel

  • There was a fascinating discussion about Scarlett Thomas’ The End of Mr Y on Newsnight Review last night, with much debate between Jeanette Winterson and Julie Myerson on the one hand, and Tim Lott and Michael Gove on the other, about (among other things) how best to use language to convey ideas. Also, check out two reviews of the book, by Roz Kaveney and Dan Hartland
  • Abigail Nussbaum reviews China Mieville’s Un Lun Dun

    Hot damn the review of the new Tolkien at Strange Horizons was good. The one on the Thomas book too. I think I know which two new books I’m going to read next.
