Here is the last few weekend’s worth of weekend reading…
- The Guardian offers a few excerpts from Susan Faludi’s The Terror Dream: Fear & Fantasy In Post 9-11 America. A lot of what is discussed in these excerpts were the sort of thing that freaked me out “post 9-11″ and prompted me to start writing notes for what would become War Prayers later.
- The Nation recently reprinted one of my favorite Kurt Vonnegut pieces, The Worst Addiction Of Them All.
- Two from The Quarterly Conversation: reviews of Junot Diaz and Vasily Grossman.
- The Little Professor offers a lengthy, and very thoughtful, review of Marc Bousquet’s How The University Works.
- Our weekly two from The Quarterly Conversation: reviews of Mari Akasaka and Jose Maria Eça de Queirós.
- Lewis Call’s “Sounds Like Kinky Business to Me”: Subtextual and Textual Representations of Erotic Power in the Buffyverse.
- Mother Jones interviews Marjane Satrapi.
- Three from The Quarterly Conversation: Natsume Soseki, Ron Currie Jr., and Selah Saterstrom.
