Spanish novelist Javier Marias has turned down a €20,000 literary prize from the Spanish government.
Book critic Mark Athitakis, the respected author of the blog American Fiction Notes and editor of the National Book Critics Circle’s blog “Critical Mass,” included my essay on Yukio Mishima in one off their weekly roundups last month. It was an honor to be mentioned on the site and with so many other gifted writers. Each week Critical Mass provides a great rundown of the best reviews and essays in the literary world.
The Los Angeles Review of Books has finally debuted their new website. It is an impressive collection of essays, reviews and interviews. Well worth visiting several times a week.
