On fiction – Amit Chaudhuri in Harper’s:
‘From Sojourn, which was published last month by New York Review Books.
The flat was new to me. I’d moved into it the day before yesterday in a hurry. It wasn’t the flat I’d arrived to. That was smaller: a kind of studio. The drawing room and bedroom merged with the kitchen. In another mood I would have found it charming.’

A terrific example on the subjectivity of our esthetic judgements, on the subjectivity of most judgments. ‘In another mood I would have found it charming.’
And once again I thank God that I don’t teach creative writing.
