AN INTERVIEW WITH NADEEM ASLAM
By Terry Hong

“And my language is influenced by Urdu poetry, by the Koran -- which of course is Arab poetry. Sometimes when I write, I want language to become an active participant in the storytelling. Just as a filmmaker would make the camera shaky during a battle scene, to convey the fear and adrenalin and velocity. Or he could saturate the colors at some point, or make the camera lose focus. I like to do that in prose when required. And I think I learned that from the texts like the Koran, which I have been reading all my life in various languages.”

The death of my father
When someone close to you dies, the very fabric of your life is ripped to shreds. Is philosophy any consolation?
By Julian Baggini

“A much more useful philosophy would help us to prepare for the deaths of others. I have never been sure that philosophy does a good job of that. But perhaps a philosophical outlook can help us make sense of death when it comes close to us. It seems to me there are three dimensions to this: what the death means for the one who has died; what it means for those who survive; and, perhaps most of all, the sheer shock and surprise to find death not knocking at the door but crashing through it, uninvited.”
