    THE MISSING LINKS
    The Library of Unwritten Books. * Dennis Cooper (who has been interviewed not once but twice by 3:AM) started off his blog, back in May, with this rather ominous disclaimer: "I think I'm ill-suited to blogging". Thankfully, he was totally wrong. * Rob Walker (author of Letters From New Orleans) is interviewed by flak magazine: "'The gap between the college students partying on Bourbon Street and the reality of some of the poverty and so forth in New Orleans is particularly extreme,' he says. 'Some of what I'm saying might be true of certain Caribbean destinations like Jamaica, or whatever -- I don't know enough about it. But I think among United States cities, that gap is unique in New Orleans'." * The always great Literary Saloon on the growing influence of US litblogs. * Chris Mitchell on an Irvine Welsh critical study by Aaron Kelly in Manchester University Press's interesting Contemporary British Novelists series. * A deconstruction of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. (See also: free books for all under-fives in Britain.) * Have just sold the film rights for "Enough Ribena to Incarnadine the Multitudinous Seas" to an American animation company. * Simon Callow on the 50th anniversary of the British premiere of Waiting for Godot: "That Samuel Beckett should have chosen to write a play at all is something of a mystery. "'You ask me for my ideas on Waiting for Godot and my ideas on the theatre,' he wrote to Michel Polac on Godot's publication a year before it was produced. 'I have no ideas on the theatre. I know nothing about it. I never go. That's reasonable. What is rather less so," he added, "is . . . to write a play, and then to have no ideas on that either'." * The Geoffrey Chaucer rap. * Louis XIV in the Guardian: "'...you can't say a line like 'You don't have to go to the pool if you want me to make you wet' and not smile a little bit'." (More here.) * dogmatika on Lulu, the "eBay of publishing": "it's just sexed-up print-on-demand really". * Another publishing project. This one's called Leaf: "A new publishing company plans to sell individual short stories in book form in cafes and train stations across" Wales. "The founders of Leaf -- a University of Glamorgan spin-out company -- believe they can tap into a ready market of people hungry for 'something to read'." * The first wave of Gen-Xers is turning forty: "We're probably the first generation who doesn't live for work". * Tristan Egolf: "In 1995, he was on the Pont des Arts when Maria, daughter of novelist Patrick Modiano, chanced by, sensed something in what Egolf was doing, and asked him to come for a coffee, after which he returned to the US to fortify the novel's setting". * Is the show going on in London? * Jonathan Safran Foer is a LittleBlue SmurfBoy. Apparently.
