I am writing from a train on my way back from Paris where I have been since Thursday, first organising a conference and then visiting a friend. That is why I am late yet again with this update on the world of literature.

October is the month of big literary awards, with the winners of the Man Booker, Nobel and Neustadt awards announced, but there are also plenty of fairs and festivals to keep literature enthusiasts busy. On the publishing front I am particularly excited by the arrival of another David Mitchell novel merely a year after the last one. This little novel grew out of a twitter story he wrote.
