My Favorite Lit-Blog Things: Aug. 11, 2010

I missed it earlier – Classics Lost and Found: Authors pick the modern classic they would like to revive (via Neglected Books)

So, by blogging about books, am I convincing myself to like inferior books and to not like superior books? (rationality as argumentation facilitator rather than tool to reveal truth)

John Gray on Politics and the Cold War Novel: “Kafka was a realist.” (Literary Review)

Five Little Known Facts About Australian Literature (Whispering Gums)

Four Classic Authors in 30 Minutes or Less (Desert Book Chick guest post by Whispering Gums)

“…the lover’s discourse is today of an extreme solitude.” (Sasha & the Silverfish)

On Internet Book Reviews (The Critical Flame)

Some Booker Coverage:

KfC answers The Finkler Question with a resounding “NO” and, in a prior post, makes it clear that In a Strange Room is where I want to be.

John Self makes a strong case for Tom McCarthy’s C.

My Favorite Thing? The honor of being featured at Reading Matters for this week’s “Triple Choice Tuesday“. Thanks, Kim!
