Guest blog Aline Tayar on reading eclectically.I find much modern literature disappointing so keep going back to the classics. Have just finished The Darwin Economy - a book I learned about when the author appeared in a radio debate and was attacked very rudely by the libertarians in the audience. BBC and NPR on radio are especially good sources of information on books. The Observer too. I’m currently working on short stories and trying to decide if I should self-publish a novel or hold out for an agent - the process of searching for one is so dispiriting.
