Today marks the final day of guest blogs from author Jacob Ritari at InDigest. He blogged all week about what is wrong with the selection process for the Nobel Prize in literature and how it's take on international literature is infuriating (and why that might be the reason Yukio Mishima killed himself). Ritari is the author of the forthcoming book from Unbridled Book, Taroko Gorge.
Also, come join InDigest for two InDigest 1207 Reading Series events this week. On Saturday, at 5pm, we have author Ander Monson (whose great new book, Vanishing Point, I reviewed at Bookslut) and Sam Osterhout (of Radio Happy Hour). Then on Tuesday June 1, we've got Leigh Stein, Becca Klaver, and Zachary German at the KGB Bar at 7pm. Come have a drink. Both readings are free, and wonderful. You can find all upcoming 1207 Reading Series dates here.
