Three literary links

First, a novel about a philosophy student at Sussex University who "turns to Nietzsche, Heidegger and Kierkegaard for guidance and support"? It all sounds rather too close for comfort. Thankfully, it's set well before my time! Natasha Tripney has the details.

Second, in the new edition of Context, I'm pleased to see John Taylor on Robert Pinget, in particular his mention of Be Brave. I own a copy in a precious but disintegrating copy published by the New York-based, apparently-defunct publisher Red Dust Press.

Finally, in Smoothness of Surface, Richard Crary has a fascinating post about his recent reading in classic fiction and modern criticism.
