Fiction Has To Be Constructed Carefully, Without Urgency: Arundhati Roy

New Delhi, Aug 30 (IANS): Just when the credentials of Booker winning author Arundhati Roy as a fiction writer were being questioned in literary circles, the acclaimed novelist, after a hiatus of two decades, returned with her second novel and, boom — it is again long-listed for the much-coveted award. The author, however, feels there’s a world of difference between fiction and non-fiction. "For me, there is a universe of difference between the two. So when I am writing non-fiction, I am writing usually with a tremendous sense of urgency. I am writing when something is closing down, some Supreme Court order has come or something very, very urgent. And I am writing to intervene. I am writing to argue. I am writing to try and open a space for discourse. "But when I am writing fiction, I am absolutely without urgency. I have been epicly without urgency. I am trying to construct a universe very carefully, very minutely, and in the case of ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ I was also experimenting a lot with what fiction can do and how much it can push the walls. So there was absolutely no hurry for me in fiction whereas […] View original: Fiction has to be constructed carefully, without urgency: Arundhati Roy Tags: Author, Fiction, Fiction, LITERARY, NEWS, Non-Fiction,...

‘The Massacre Of Mankind’: A Sequel To HG Wells’s ‘The War Of The Worlds’

At the close of H.G. Wells’s 1898 novel “The War of the Worlds,” the Martian invaders are all dead, having succumbed to the viruses that infest our planet and for which they had never built up resistance. While something of a surprise ending, Wells had nonetheless prepared the reader for it with various clues, starting with his opening sentence: “No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.” Despite the unexpected failure of what was probably just a scouting party, would Mars, a dying and depleted planet, simply abandon its plans of conquest? Wouldn’t those “intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic” continue to regard our Earth with the same envious eyes and, slowly and surely, draw up new plans against us? Such is the premise of Stephen Baxter’s “The Massacre of Mankind”— the phrase appears in […] View original: ‘The Massacre of Mankind’: a sequel to HG Wells’s ‘The War of the Worlds’ Tags:...

On Stage With Donna Walker: Singer-songwriter Nathan Angelo’s Personal Story Inspired New Album

On this week’s "On Stage with Donna Walker," we feature singer/songwriter Nathan Angelo. He plays two songs off his new album, "Matter of Time," and talks about the personal message in his songs. JOSH MORGAN/Staff Buy Photo Greenville-based singer-songwriter Nathan Angelo has occasionally found musical inspiration from his own life. But for his latest album, “A Matter of Time,” some of the songs came directly from a particularly challenging experience: his infant daughter’s serious illness, which culminated in a liver transplant last year. Angelo, whose piano-based songs call to mind his passion for the music of Elton John and...
