THE DIRTIEST BOOK ON THE LIST 08/31/2004

One of our favourite authors, Matt Thorne, has made it onto the Man Booker longlist. The author of Cherry has spoken exclusively to 3AM literary editor Andrew Stevens' excellent Man Booker blog: "'I'm delighted to be on the Booker long-list, especially as this year it seems to be a very interesting selection of books. The thing I'm most proud about is that I'm certain Cherry is by far the dirtiest book on the list. I've read about 25% of the books on the list, and intend to take a look at the others. It's really great to see Neil Cross and Sarah Hall there, and I've heard lots of good things about Louise Dean. It's no surprise that David Mitchell, Nicola Barker, Ronan Bennett, Colm Toibin, Shirley Hazzard, Sam North, Alan Hollinghurst and Nicholas Shakespeare are on the list as they're all solid authors who already have great reputations. I know less about the newcomers, but that's a good thing: the Booker has a history of bringing first-time authors to the attention of the world.'"



LIT MAG OF THE SEASON 08/31/2004

3AM Magazine is Laura Hird's Lit Mag of the Season and we're well chuffed: "3AM is an excellent international literary magazine which was launched in April 2000. Features all the best new interviews, fiction, flash fiction, poetry, music and gig reviews, literature reviews, articles, politics, arts and a great selection of categorised links, along with Buzzwords, a daily dose of literary and cultural news from around the global village. They are always on the look-out for fresh, innovative, irreverent previously unpublished writing. . . . Great site to browse around with something for every taste".



THE MOST IMPORTANT BAND IN THE WORLD 08/31/2004

Who would have thought it? A couple of years ago, they were being touted -- rather unconvincingly -- as England's answer to The Strokes. Today, no other band on earth can touch them, which is why The Libertines' second eponymous album (currently number one in the British charts!) transcends mere musical criteria. From the Clash-style morse-code intro/outro of Can't Stand Me Now, with its gloriously-shambolic coda, to live favourite "What Became of the Likely Lads", this is the raw sound of two bleeding hearts. You don't hear that very often these days.
