Bookish Links — May 2015

  • After six authors announced their intention to boycott PEN America’s gala dinner honoring the staff of Charlie Hebdo, Salman Rushdie—never one to be shy about airing his opinions—had some words for them.
  • In 1972, then-college student Lisa Potts conducted an interview with Ray Bradbury. She had all but forgotten the event until just recently, when she found the tape of the interview behind her dresser. (On a side note, how exactly does one forget talking to Ray Bradbury?!) Thanks be, the folks at Mental Floss were kind enough to post the audio of that interview for us.

 

All this is very interesting to me, but are there any topics in particular that you would like me to hunt up articles on? Is there one type of article you prefer over another? (Interviews over news stories? Authors’ original works instead of opinions about them?) Let me know in the comments.

  1. I’m always interested in Jane Austen stuff – but I’m pretty sure there’s nothing left of hers to be published. Also, I thought you might be interested in looking into prayers she wrote since you seem to enjoy spiritual literature. I believe they can be found online or in book called “Minor Works”.

    1. Yeah, there probably isn’t anything of hers left to publish, but then again, I thought the same thing about Mark Twain and look at him!

      Thanks for telling me about Austen’s prayer books. Honestly, it was only just recently that I found out that she has things published besides novels and letters. XD I’ll definitely check those out.

Is this just fantasy?

I love the movies, which is why I like to blame them for everything.
