ANZ LitLovers LitBlog has the scoop on several contenders on the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards fiction shortlist.
The Not-The-Booker (very) longlist is up. You can vote for your favorites to go on the shortlist. I am waiting for John Self‘s review of All The Colours Of The Town by Liam McIvanney, forthcoming tomorrow.
The Fiction Desk has an excellent guide to blog coverage of the Booker.
The Mookse and the Gripes has added to the coverage of Colm Toibin’s Brooklyn with an excellent review. I was wavering whether to start my Toibin reading with it, but I will now. You can find other excellent reviews of Brooklyn at The Asylum and Kevin From Canada.
As if there weren’t enough The Asylum references in this post, I enjoyed his review of this book which sounds very interesting.
Because I am a bibliophile who loves physics, I found this feature article over at the BookSlut to be fascinating.
My daughter asks the TV in the background: “Then who will fight crime on a daily basis? Hmmm?” Time to step into a void.
