Feeling a little drawn…

N.B. I chose a British accent simply because the Australian one could not pronounce some of the words. And cheers to Overland and Meanjin for bringing this site to my attention.

Now, to some links for the week…

Happy Mother’s Day! My Mum is amazing and I love her to bits, but for something humorous on Mother’s Day, here’s BookFinder‘s look at the worst mothers in literature.

Fiction faces hard facts – Bookman Beattie has posted this from the Washington Post. That there may be a trend towards paperback originals I find interesting.

I know I have enough (too much) to read, but I really want this. And not just because I heart his brother…

Australian fiction that has shaped me – a list I wrote for Flashlight Worthy has gone up this week.

And if you need a poetry fix (or some direction on where to start), do yourself a favour and check out Graham Nunn’s blog, Another Lost Shark.

    The problem with Joyce is precisely that he’s brilliant :p Such dense books.

    I am reading Ulysses for the first time and it is blowing me away! I remember not liking Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, but I will have to revisit sometime. And I’ve read a fair few of the short stories. Some definite Joyce-love developing.
