Hazlitt is a new digital habitat from the folks at Random House Canada - publishing originally commissioned ebooks, videos, essays and more.
Looks like the beautiful design is matched with some beautiful content, especially enjoying Suzanna Showler’s account of house-sitting for Sheila Heti, How Should a Person House-Sit?  
(The name takes after nineteenth century journalist William Hazlitt, not a Lolcat reference btw)

If you haven’t read this instantly classic western-noir, you best repent and rectify that shit. Add The Sisters Brothers to your summer reading list.  And put it at the top.

^^^ Agreed.

‘Here lies Morris, a good man and friend. He enjoyed the finer points of civilized life but never shied away from a hearty adventure or hard work. He died a free man, which is more than most people can say, if we are going to be honest about it. Most people are chained to their own fear and stupidity and haven’t the sense to level a cold eye at just what is wrong with their lives. Most people will continue on, dissatisfied but never attempting to understand why, or how they might change things for the better, and they die with nothing in their hearts but dirt and old, thin blood - weak blood, diluted - and their memories aren’t worth a goddamned thing, you will see what I mean. Most people are imbeciles, really, but Morris was not like this. He shuld have lived longer. He had more to give. And if there is a God he is a son of a bitch.’

Patrick deWitt (2011), The Sisters Brothers.

“I do not know what it was about that boy but just looking at him, even I wanted to clout him on the head. It was a head that invited violence.” ― Patrick deWitt, The Sisters Brothers

I&#8217;ve noticed my favourite book of 2011 is getting more and more love these days. Awesome!

A quick sketch, because I really do need to get better at posting things here! Anyways I am usually not one for fan art but this is Nico from the Eli Monpress books. The books themselves are alright for a fun, very brainless read.

An awesome sketch and fun book suggestion from Alyssa Heron @ Look A Heron!

“….I elected to show the woman my new toothbrush and powder, which I had in my vest pocket. She became excited by the suggestion, for she was also a recent convert to this method, and she hurried to fetch her equipment that we might brush simultaneously.”

From The Sisters Brothers

I don’t think the argument in favor of libraries is especially ideological or ethical. I would even agree with those who say it’s not especially logical. I think for most people it’s emotional. Not logos or ethos but pathos. This is not a denigration: emotion also has a place in public policy. We’re humans, not robots. The people protesting the closing of Kensal Rise Library love that library. They were open to any solution on the left or on the right if it meant keeping their library open. They were ready to Big Society the hell out of that place. A library is one of those social goods that matter to people of many different political attitudes. All that the friends of Kensal Rise and Willesden Library and similar services throughout the country are saying is: these places are important to us.
