Disjecta: This week's links

Photograph: Richard Beymer

Welcome to a bumper edition of Disjecta! I've spent the last three weeks in Los Angeles, so haven't been able to update A Piece of Monologue as much as I would have liked. But I did manage to post links on Twitter from time to time, so I've gathered together the best of them here. Included is an original piece of writing by Joyce Carol Oates, published in the New Yorker; there's an article by Richard Crary on Christopher Rick's Beckett's Dying Words; and your guide to the best literary T-shirts this spring. As if that wasn't enough, there's a selection of links related to American filmmaker David Lynch, whose Twin Peaks television series celebrated its twentieth anniversary this week.
