I wrote a piece for The White Review comparing the recent work of Atis Rezistans at Nottingham Contemporary to Don Dellilo's Falling Man, Joseph O'Neill's Netherland and Bill Viola's The Passions.
Reading: Sentimental Education, Angels (Denis Johnson), Gogol's edited stories. Denis Johnson's work is incredible.
I'm about to do three lectures/workshops for Kingston University's arts journalism department. You can find the class-notes for the arts news/features lecture here (access using QuickTime; pause on each slide).
