Almost two years ago, I told myself (and the world) that I needed to find a copy of Francis Spufford’s Red Plenty. But I, uh, forgot.
Now, of course, the folks at Crooked Timber are hosting a symposium on Spufford’s novel, and the first four responses—by Kim Stanley Robinson, Antoaneta Dimitrova, George Scialabba, and Cosma Shalizi—have been published.
Which means I need to find the time to order and read the book, and then to read the symposium on the book. And I’m already late. . .
