  1. Thoughts on Fiction, Real Life, and Escapism.
  2. A tribute to many madmen. “Once upon a time, G. K. Chesterton wrote a story about a madman who was really the sanest man of all. Actually, now that I think about it, G. K. Chesterton wrote many stories about a madman who was really the sanest man of all; but the story I am thinking of was Manalive.”
  3. “When studying this all those years ago at secondary school, Animal Farm bored me to tears. So did everything, back then, though. Of Mice and Men and The Great Gatsby are books to be shunted in alongside the work of George Orwell as ‘pieces of literature I have yet to re-visit, away from the iron grip of hellish education institutions.'”
  4. The purpose of novels, via Anwar AlKandari.
  5. How museums are making classic literature more attractive to young readers.
