Just in case any maudnewton.com readers live in London: On September 3, Zadie Smith will be giving a lecture called “Kafka versus the Novel.” (Link via splinters.) I have a sort of crush on Zadie Smith. And also on Kafka. The contents of this lecture will probably end up in the book (about the novel) that Smith is working on now. So, you know, I can read what she has to say in a couple of years. Sniff. Damn all you people who live in London!
