The publishers at Fourth
Estate in London are celebrating their 25th anniversary with a
provocative experiment that asks:
Do we love the writing we read?
do we read the writers we love?
to read a short story from one of nine authors including Chimamanda
Ngozi Adichie and Joyce Carol Oates. The catch? Stories are all
anonymous so theres no way of knowing if the author is a novice or has
five Booker nominations to her name. Think of it as a literary blind
We know the ones we loved, but have a read and judge for yourself.
