THE EDITOR RECOMMENDS

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK
http://www.bookforum.com/
An American magazine devoted to books and the discussion of literature. Based in New York City, New York, it is edited by Albert Mobilio, Chris Lehmann, David O'Neill and Michael Miller. “The magazine was launched in 1994 as a literary supplement to Artforum. Originally published biannually, it became a quarterly in 1998, and since 2005, the magazine has published five times a year, with issues coming out in February, April, June, September and December. Describing the magazine to The Village Voice in 2003, former editor Eric Banks said that the magazine targets a demographic "like the New York Review's but much younger. I think there is an audience of intellectual readers between 25 and 40 out there – the kind of person who buys The New Republic, The Nation, and The New York Review of Books, but doesn't have an allegiance to a particular publication."

FILM OF THE WEEK
Underground

Underground is a 1995 award-winning film directed by Emir Kusturica with a screenplay by Dušan Kovačević. Also known by the subtitle Once Upon a Time There Was a Country, which was the title of the 5-hour mini-series (the long cut of the movie) shown on Serbian RTS television. “The film uses the epic story of two friends to portray and satirize Yugoslav history from the beginning of World War II until the beginning of Yugoslav Wars. The film was an international co-production with companies from FR Yugoslavia, France, Germany and Hungary.” Premiered at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival and awarded Palme d'Or.

BEST OF WEB:
What Is the Business of Literature?
Richard Nash

“The story of the book as technology—the book as revolutionary, disruptive technology—must be told honestly, without triumphalism or defeatism, without hope, without despair, just as Isak Dinesen admonished us to write. A great challenge in producing such an account, however, is the “availability heuristic.” This is a model of cognitive psychology first proposed in 1973 by Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman and his colleague Amos Tversky, which describes how humans make decisions based on information that is relatively easy to recall. The things that we easily recall are things that happen frequently, and so making decisions based on the samples we have at hand would seem to make sense.”

Eye for an Eye:The Case for Revenge
By Thane Rosenbaum
“Justice is satisfied only when wrongdoers are properly punished and victims have their voices heard and losses avenged. The emotional component of vengeance matters greatly. Courtrooms sanitized of these feelings offer no moral closure. And the public loses faith in the law—with all its false outcomes and broken promises.”
