Omnivore: Old and new.

Omnivore is a regular report on some of the things that I’ve been enjoying during the week (or thereabouts).

Since the last edition, I’ve read and re-read a few books. I did The Bell Jar, a new César Aira (as far as English translations go) called The Seamstress and the Wind, and Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking. I re-read The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis (actually, I started this ages ago but only finished about two or three weeks back), Dino Buzzati’s Poem Strip, and Julio Cortázar’s Blow-Up and Other Stories.

I’ve also been watching Radiohead’s “From the Basement” performance of The King of Limbs by streaming it online. It’s great. It’s not on YouTube because of copyright claims, I believe, so you’ll have to spend a bit of time looking for it.
