Chernobyl Prayer by Svetlana Alexeivichcaterina

The annual announcement of the Nobel Prize in Literature brings about an efflorescence of translations worldwide, and for this we should be grateful to those former weapons manufacturers, the Nobels.

Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthycaterinamaxresdefault

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:46:25 +0000

For the past two days I’ve been riveted to Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy, an astounding book and a book of genius. It is set in 1849-50 and follows the Glanton Gang on their orgy of slaughter along the Texas-Mexico border. It is without a doubt the most violent and bloody book I’ve ever read, […](image)
