Yesterday, I posted “Floating upwards from history: Salman Rushdie, Shame (1983)” in Talk about books. The post appeared on the web and in the RSS feed, but because of a glitch the email didn’t go out. (Or at least I didn’t get it.) has a new feature that allows me to customize the email template. I had been playing around with that and broke something — I’m still not exactly sure what. I hope to have sorted it out before the next post goes out in 10–14 days’ time. (That post is going to be about Scott Turow.)

In the meantime, if you’d like to read yesterday’s post, you can find the web version here.

If you’d like to comment on that or any other post, or anything at all, you can email me at the address on my contact page. Till next time.
