    THE MISSING LINKS
    Occasional 3:AM contributor Jim Ruland's short story collection Big Lonesome is published today by the brilliant Gorsky Press. * Mr Ruland makes a cameo (along with Robert Birnbaum of Identity Theory) in Steve Almond's hilarious article about Mark Sarvas (you know, The Elegant Variation geezer who, as Almond puts it, writes like "a learning-disabled Henry James" and whose blog is "an elaborate and indulgent plea for attention"): "He hasn't realized this -- and he never will -- but his subconscious motive for attacking me was the hope that I would someday write this very piece. He envisioned something truly vicious, something he could feed off for a good, long time. I've tried to oblige," writes Almond, who is also spot on when it comes to litblogs in general: "... not so many people read them. Instead, a very concentrated population of people read them over and over. Namely, other bloggers. They all read one another, in the hope something they mentioned on their blog will be cited on another blog. It's a kind of Ponzi scheme in which the object is attention, and the shared illusion is one of relevance". * Here's a gallery of bellydancing librarians just to prove to Mr Almond that some litblogs play a vital part in maintaining intellectual standards. * Harold Pinter lands the Nobel. * The link between Pinter and Gromit. * The Dada exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. * Who is JT LeRoy? * Bret Easton Ellis interviewed by Kultureflash. On Kerouac: "I wanted to live like Kerouac, before I grew up and realised I didn't want to live like Kerouac, but by then it was too late and I was already living like Kerouac." On fatherhood: "I feel maybe my wanting a child was a very natural thing. I know a lot of men who want children. Men want children. It's natural but I feel like I maybe wanted to correct the damage that was inflicted on me by my dad. I thought, I'm going to do it and I'm going to do it right. I suppose that it a selfish reason for wanting to have a child but it's not a bad one, really. I wanted to not fuck someone up. What is wrong with that?" There's also a video interview here. * The New Orleans Book Fair will go ahead on 29 October. Respect. * Jan Svankmajer. * John Banville surprises everyone by netting the Booker. * Luke Haines at the ICA. * A Jeffrey Eugenides story in The New Yorker. * Kurt Vonnegut interviewed. * The next Morrissey album. * Four-Eyed Bitch wonders why literary readings are so bloody boring? * Narnia Disney stylee. * The new Alex Garland/Danny Boyle collaboration. * A great collection of pictures by (and of) 3:AM editor Matthew Wascovich. * Banned Books Week. * The history of Brighton punk (link via Guillaume Destot). * Zadie Smith in The Boston Globe. * 3:AM contributor Tony O'Neill interviews Dan Fante over at Laura Hird's.
