The bookforum.com blog, omnivore, provides sets of links to articles, reviews and other publications online addressing a particular topic or area – such as, in this case “the aftermath of violence.” They cast a wide and intelligent net that brings in material from a quite diverse range of sources – the world of print online, though I realize that is a bit of an oxymoron – and their topics are generally interesting and well-conceived. One of the most useful discoveries I’ve made online this year.
