Mid-week was for goofing off but now that the weekend is upon is - and a gorgeously crisp and sunny Saturday it is too - here's some reading I've been doing.
1. Aaron Bady on Granta's Pakistan issue: 'The Language of Developmental Literature'. The beginning of that essay provides links to the original essays that set this post off. Each of those links is worth checking out. Indian writers should be paying close attention to those posts.
2. Zadie Smith on The Social Network and You Are Not a Gadget.
3. J.H. Prynne on the difficulties in translating 'difficult' poetry. [pdf].
