So great to see a new edition of Giles Smith’s Lost in Music. Remember reading - and loving - it when it first came out in 1995. A glorious, deeply funny book. Can’t wait to dive in again…

RT by @LiamMcIlvanney: I completely agree with this. It also has further exacerbated the tendency to absurd specialization, such that we’re all working on a subfield of a subfield, the end result being that we’re so pigeonholed into a single micro-discourse that we no longer know much worth knowing.

Another superb novel from Emma Cline. Shades of Ripley and of Cheever’s ‘The Swimmer’. Her ear for that moment when someone says the wrong thing and an ambience curdles and sours is just exquisite and excruciating. Sentences of tremendous reach & lucidity. This is a great book…
