Hay there

William Logan's reviews of poetry include On The Word on the Street, by Paul Muldoon, at The New Criterion.

The Daily Telegraph reported from this year's Hay Festival of Literature & Arts, "the greatest literary festival in the world", which ran from May 23rd through June 2nd in Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales. Hay-on-Wye is known as the "town of books", so we once took a vacation side trip there to shop. We happened to meet Mr. Richard Booth, credited with making it a booktown, and proprietor of its largest bookstore. I was flattered by his interest in my booklist, which was then in a ring binder rather than online. *

Nietzsche, Our Contemporary by Eric Walther, at Philosophy Now

J'accuse, by Robin Buss, at The Guardian, on Emile Zola

* See Reading Rat, my compilation of recommended reading.
