What many blogs do better than the conventional print media is offer a sense of the global literary culture by providing links to foreign book coverage.
Moorishgirl.com, run by Laila Lalami of Portland, Ore., focuses primarily, though not exclusively, on fiction from the Arab world and South Asia. Another site, www.complete-review.com, dedicates a specific blog to literature in translation.
Are we moving closer to a global literary culture? I think blogs have the potential to help lessen US-centrism, at least.
