Slightly Peckish Tuesday

15 January, 2013

Hello. How are you?

It’s extremely chilly in London although we haven’t seen any more snow since the brief flurry yesterday. But here’s something to cheer you up at Umami Mart: Slightly Peckish where I talk about Shonan Cheese Pie from Japan. So check me out!

In bookish news, I’m currently reading Shusaku Endo’s famous novel about Christian apostasy and martyrdom in 17th century Japan, Silence. It’s a deep and moving portrayal of faith and I love Endo’s writing. I’m keeping to my promise of reading only from my own shelves at the moment, although I have to admit I bought some books while strolling through a couple of charity shops in the weekend. Oops. But I’ll keep them for later in the year, of course.

The British Library is hosting a free exhibition on crime including a series of events on crime writing which I’m really excited about. I’ll have to make my way there for a peek and possibly a coffee. Just sitting in that lovely building is inspiring.

Badaude has a lovely piece in berfrois.

And Bellezza has a wonderful post about Haruki Murakami and translation.
