Ismail Kadare

I kept meaning to listen to BBC Radio 4's series 'Stories from Eastern Europe', but never quite managed it. Tonight's, though, the last, is one not to miss - a story by the Albanian writer, Ismail Kadare, The Dream Bearer.   

Meanwhile, over on Radio 3, Sunday Feature has Christopher Hitchens and others, in a programme about British and European writers in the USA.

Some words of Winston Churchill's that bloggers might well take to heart: "I am going to give a long speech as I have not had time to write a short one" (quoted by Rosie Blau in the FT Magazine, reviewing 'Very Short Introductions...' etc.).
