Meanwhile, at The Discarded Image…
Just a quick note to remind you that I’m doing some writing over at The Discarded Image, where the focus is “the hunt for belief changing ideas.” I generally cross-post my book reviews here so I can keep track of them in my archives, but there are other discussions there that I may forget to mention here.
The latest, from our Reviews in the Wild series, is a discussion about just how much we readers expect historical fiction to be based on “fact.” The questions were raised in a provocative review, published by the Guardian, of Anna Funder’s debut novel, All That I Am. Please do drop by and leave a comment with your perspective. And while you’re there, I hope you’ll take a moment to poke around and join in on any other conversations you find relevant.
That’s it for tonight. We now return you to your regularly scheduled reading!
