I came across a couple of interesting articles on the Telegraph website that may be of interest to some.
The first isÂ one of these predictive pieces that tips the ‘next big thing’ — in this case new novelists. It’s interesting to see what type of novels are due for publication (and, perhaps, more importantly, promotion). Charlotte’s friend Simon Lelic is in the list. I saw his book being promotedÂ in the window of Foyle’s at St. Pancras station last week.
The other one is a top 20 books of the decade thing (not just novels). Quite a few of the novels and authorsÂ we discussed last term are featured, including interesting choice like Persepolis.Â
Now to try and work on something to send out for reading over the weekend.
