Douglas Gordon's '24 Hour Psycho' (1993)
Douglas Gordon's 24 Hour Psycho (1993)

This week we celebrated World Book Day 2010, and the news kept coming in. There are plenty of reviews for Don DeLillo's new novel, Point Omega, and a newly edited volume of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. A podcast of Paul Auster's recent address on Samuel Beckett is now online. And new editions of Cormac McCarthy's novels have been released with a distinctive new design. In other news, Will Self's official website has confirmed that he does not use the social networking site Twitter, a landmark exhibition of women's art is being hosted by the Centre Pompidou, and - did I mention? - the first issue of Assuming Gender is now online. Enjoy!
