Have I mentioned before how much I love the fact that my blog theme is called Oulipo? Once upon a time I dreamed of writing an Oulipian novel, but my ideas were all so much better in theory than in execution.
There should be a review or two coming along later this week, but for now I just wanted to draw attention to new issues of two online magazines (is that what we call them?). Untitled Books is one of my favourite browses, particularly since Pulp went quiet last year. The new issue features an interview with Herman Koch and a short story by Amy Hempel. And then there’s the new Five Dials from Hamish Hamilton, which includes an interview with John Banville as well as lots of bear illustrations. I’ll be spending a few hours with both of them later on.
