Sergei Dovlatov, a dissident sans idea

All but invisible in his home country, Sergei Dovlatov was something of a mythical figure among the Russian diaspora of New York. Indeed, Vladimir Yermakov compares the conundrum of Dovlatov's life as a writer to Escher's composition of two hands simultaneously drawing one another. [more]

Antti Nylén

On meat-eating

Until fairly recently, meat-eating wasn't an issue at all. You didn't think about meat, you just ingested it. Nowadays, writes Finnish critic Antti Nylén, it's hard to imagine a more extreme phenomenon than modern meat consumption. So how can meat-eating still be possible? [more]
