Weird things happen when you're locked up, and as usual it's up to Literary Loitering to ... poke gentle fun with a big stick ... at the books and arts world.
So what did our stay-at-home cultural anarchists discover before being bamboozled by a barrage of obsolete words? Well, aside from the French authors Leïla Slimani and Marie Darrieussecq (try spelling that in the dark), being called elitist and compared to Marie Antoinette, there are radio plays replacing theatre productions, online all-star cast recitations of The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner, the rise of quarantine book clubs, an internet nazi invasion of an Archers podcast's online meet up, abject plagiarism making the Booker long list, letters from Big Papa Hemingway and more.
