Rojak: Double feature.

Rojak is a weekly (sometimes fortnightly) collection of assorted links as well as a bulletin summarising the week (or fortnight) on this blog.


Philip Roth wins Man Booker International Prize; judge quits. [via The Guardian]

I only just learnt that Ernesto Sábato died a few weeks ago, which makes me more than a little sad. [via The Telegraph]

Unpublished Anthony Burgess work discovered. [via A Piece of Monologue]

Mark Twain and his childhood attempt at a biography of Satan. [via Maud Newton]

Lars von Trier banned from Cannes over Nazi comments. [via The Telegraph]

Fleet Foxes interview. [via Pitchfork]

Marvin Gaye’s classic What’s Going On is receiving the anniversary box-set treatment. [via Consequence of Sound]

And it’s always a good day (if it can be called that) to watch the saddest scene from Fargo. [via YouTube]


The main feature this week was my Summer Reading List, a selection of things to help you spend your summer in an enjoyable fashion. It features (curiously enough) not just books, but film and music as well.


A music-heavy fortnight, I realise.
