Link of the week

IMG_8850_resizedFollowing my recent review of “The Vegetarian” I have chosen Tim Parks’ controversial critique of the translation and by extension Han Kang’s novel itself as this week’s first link. Although I thoroughly disagree with the premise of Park’s polemic,  particularly with his notion of global literature, he nevertheless makes a couple of interesting and entertaining points about the issue of voice in the novel.

“Raw and Cooked” by Tim Parks s from the New York Review of Books

Always worthwhile to listen to is the Three Percent Podcast with Tom and Chad, the latest edition of which features a segment on the Tim Parks article (32 minutes into the podcast).
