Odds and Ends

• Mario Vargas Llosa wins the Nobel Prize in Literature.

• The theft of Jonathan Franzen's glasses (off his face!) leads to a Fugitive-style chase...

• ....And the culprit's got some explaining to do.

• New York's Public Theater is staging an unconventional production of The Great Gatsby.

Paul Auster is coming to a PSP near you.

The Guardian profiles Lauren Child, creator of Charlie and Lola, and one of my favorite picture book authors.

• Here's an interesting angle, I guess: The Top 10 Writers on the Telephone.
