Hi Anna. I'm a fan of your blog. Have you read "Joseph Anton"? I ask this because, although Mrs. Heller review of the book is very good, it feels at times bitter - like the work she's reviewing. Personally I enjoyed "Joseph Anton" - aside his rants and grandiloquence -, and woould like to know your opinion on the matter. Thanks!

Hi Pablo: Thanks for your comments! I have not read "Joseph Anton," but I'm curious about it ... I think in my mind, I've told myself I need to read "The Satanic Verses" before I read JA. It's good to get your thumbs-up, though: it pushes it a little higher on the to-be-read list!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
