Must Read Article

Robert McCrum has a long article in the Guardian in which he interviews writers about their hopes and fears regarding the upcoming presidential election. The writers quoted in the article are: Carl Hiaasen, Paul Auster, Norman Mailer, Nicholson Baker, Richard Ford, Deborah Eisenberg, Wallace Shawn, Siri Hustvedt, Jonathan Safran Foer, Junot Diaz, and ZZ Packer. The article is long but well worth the time in my humble opinion. And while you are at the Guardian, check out the hullabaloo over Penguin's new series of philosophical and revolutionary writers. While some of the charges leveled are right on, one can only hope that readers will become interested in reading more from these and other writers.
