Scott Esposito on literary product placements in modern sitcoms. So, there’s a reason why John Updike’s Rabbit novels were always mentioning Toyota….

Another list of best literary works of the previous century. Some nice surprises: ..The Time of the Doves (La Plaa del Diamant) Merc Rodoreda, Spain, Voss Patrick White, The Devil to Pay in the Backlands (Grande serto: veredas) Joo Guimares Rosa, Brazil, The Turning Point (I strof) Giorgios Seferiades, Greece, .Red Sorghum (Hung kao liang) Mo Yan, China, .The Conservationist Nadine Gordimer, South Africa, ..The Lost Steps (Los pasos perdidos) Alejo Carpentier, Cuba.The Day Before Yesterday (Tmol shilshom) S. Y. Agnon (Spain/Israel), …A House for Mr. Biswas V. S. Naipaul, Trinidad, House Made of Dawn N. Scott Momaday, . I’m pleasantly surprised to see Cairo Trilogy, Narayan’s Guide and disappointed to see the overrated Golden Notebooks by doris lessing.
