This week I’ve been working my way through David Peace’s new novel, Red or Dead. It is outstanding, although perhaps an acquired taste as it combines football with some proper modernist writing, but if you have the slightest interest in either you really should pick this book up.
I’ve also been reading the following shorter pieces, all well worth a look:
- On The Kantstrasse: A Short History Of German Flânerie
- The Ecuadorian Library
- The lost world of the London coffee house
- George Saunders’s Advice to Graduates
- This Recycling Bin Is Stalking You
- Returning to Alter Ego
