Slog: News & Arts

RSS icon Comments on The Book-of-the-Year Club


I think a new book every year is a little ridiculous if you're not a genre writer. Still I hate it when writers go 10 years or so. I think Ian McEwan has been publishing pretty much every two years, no? I think that's a pretty good pace.

As listener and not much of a reader, I think a band that releases an album every year is bound to falter. I imagine it's very similar with authors. There's no need to rush art.

I say let's start translating and publishing scrolls from the Villa of the Papyri.
