Saturday afternoon lit links!

Rushdie on Updike:

He should stay in his parochial neighbourhood and write about wife-swapping, because it’s what he can do.

Good humour is visibly restored. “I’m allowed to say it, because he was really rude about me.”

Some unfairly neglected books — 19 of them !?

Julian Barnes on Madame Bovary.

All the links, via Literary saloon.
