"Fascinating piece in the New York Times about novelists' work rates. Pricked into writing by the recent appearance of The Marriage Plot, Jeffrey Eugenides' first novel in nine years, Dwight Garner (for it is he) argues that authors really need to produce more than a book a decade if they don't want to risk that we will "have learned to live without them". This chimed with me: just this weekend, I finished All That I Am, the long-awaited second book from Anna Funder, who first came to our notice with Stasiland, published in 2003. I loved the book – really, truly loved it – but confess in the eight years between this book and that, I've wondered on occasion whether I'd ever read anything by her again."

"Renowned anthropologist Daniel Miller introduces his new book, Tales from Facebook, the result of an in-depth study of the way that Facebook impacts on its users' lives. In this interview, he explains why Facebook interests him as an anthropologist and describes some of his findings. Full details about the book can be found at Polity.co.uk"
Quite interesting, I saw him speak at How the light gets in and he made some good points...
