Bookish Links — February 2016

  • With Harper Lee’s passing earlier this month, the internet (or at least, the nerdy internet circles in which I travel) exploded with tributes to and articles about her. I found this one, about her unpublished true crime novel, especially intriguing.
  • We also lost Umberto Eco this month (on the same day as Harper Lee, no less), so in his honor, The Paris Review republished his essay “How to Travel with a Salmon.” I find it much funnier than I probably should.

  1. I saw Evelyn Waugh on the list of female authors and completely cracked up!

    Still a bit melancholy over the Harper Lee news. I will forever love To Kill a Mockingbird, but that piece about the true crime novel really does make me curious. I had never heard that before, and I would have loved to see what she would have written. I’ve read Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood (great writing but the case gave me nightmares), and I know the two authors were close and sometimes worked together. I’ve often wondered how they influenced one another.

    1. I laughed at it too, although I guess I don’t have room to talk, since I made the same mistake one time. XD
      I actually have a copy of In Cold Blood , but I haven’t read it yet, for fear of nightmares and such. Still, I would like to read it some time, just to see if I can notice Lee’s influence in it.

Is this just fantasy?

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