eBooks or noBooks?

We are all networking these days and The Conversation is no longer in the first instance a Coppola film made in the 1970s – it’s actually an exchange of lucid, super-intellectual commentary on Kim Jong-Il’s cognac collection, Kate Perry’s divorce, the latest news from the Straits of Hormuz and Jonathan Franzen’s views on the eBook. 1,274 more words

Hay Festival 2014: Fictions - Gothics

Part of the joy of going to Hay is getting to see writers talk about their latest novels.
