A work by Cuban artist Quisqueya Henríquez, included in The World Outside: A Survey Exhibition 1991-2007
- In the New York Times: Kaiama L. Glover reviews The Pirate's Daughter, a new novel by Margaret Cezair-Thompson set on Jamaica's Navy Island, once owned by Errol Flynn; and Ken Johnson reviews DR-based Cuban artist Quisqueya Henríquez's solo show currently at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
- In Time, Neel Chowdhury reviews V.S. Naipaul's A Writer's People, describing the book as "miserly" and "pretentious" (what a change from the book's flattering earliest reviews...). And it was published nearly a month ago, but I'll still link here to a Naipaul review I missed: Nilanjana S. Roy's in the India Business Standard.
- Here's an interview with Edwidge Danticat from the Foreign Policy in Focus think tank.
- And in the litblogs, Geoffrey Philp writes about his "Jamaican touch" and Marlon James attacks "slave mentality".
[Oops, missed another interesting Naipaul review: Sanjay Subrahmanyam's in the LRB.]
