- Kwame Dawes on his "first real influence", Gerard Manley Hopkins.
- Marlon James on running afoul of US immigration.
- Geoffrey Philp on his new children's book, Grandpa Sydney's Anancy Stories.
- Nalo Hopkinson on where you can buy her handicraft online--latest item on offer is a music box.
- Tishani Doshi (at the UK Guardian books blog) on poetry at the Hay Festival, including this brief mention of Derek Walcott's appearance:
Only the previous night, I'd watched Derek Walcott receive a standing ovation in the very same tent when he recited, quite emotionally, Walter de la Mare's "Farewell". One woman in the audience requested that he read his own "Love After Love" because it had a special place in her heart. And he did.
- And Randy Kennedy (in the New York Times) on Felix Gonzalez-Torres, the late Cuba-born, Puerto Rico-raised (i.e. Caribbean) artist who is representing the United States at this year's Venice Biennale.
