It is high time to lift the aesthetic state of emergency that has surrounded witness literature for so long, writes Steve Sem-Sandberg. It is not important who writes, nor even what their motives are. What counts is the "literary efficiency".

Last year, a Slate essay called “Against YA” by Ruth Graham irked thousands of readers who took offense at her argument that although grown-ups “brandish their copies of teen novels with pride…. [a]dults should feel embarrassed about reading literature written for children.” Whether we label her article an instance of shaming, trolling, or just the expression of a not-especially consequential, “fuddy-duddy opinion,” what it also served to highlight—as so many other thoughtful and not-so-thoughtful online essays have done—is the huge sales numbers of so-called YA, a literary boom that shows no signs of slowing.

Dragons, ogres, pixies? It’s not what is expected of Kazuo Ishiguro, but they feature in The Buried Giant, his first novel for 10 years. Behind the turn to fantasy, however, lies his familar fascination with the past and individual moral choices. He talks to Alex Clark about film, memory – and his taste for tea and cake

Born 187 years ago today, Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy’s life (1828-1910) spanned a period of immense social, political, and technological change, paralleled in his own life by his radical shift from hedonistic nobleman to theologian, anarchist, and vegetarian pacifist.

90thcover 

By Olivia B. Waxman TIME March 01, 2013

 

Did you know TIME didn’t always have a red border? It’s true. Back in March of 1923, when the magazine first hit newsstands, the cover was a white affair. A few years later, the border switched to red; a few years after that, in hopes of compensating for an editorial oversight, the “Person of the Year” franchise was born, to ensure Charles Lindbergh’s face appeared on the cover after his famous flight across the Atlantic.
