PEN/Nabokov Award Relaunched: The $50,000 prize will honor a living international author whose work is "of enduring originality and consummate craftsmanship."

Six Questions for Colson Whitehead: The author of 'The Underground Railroad,' Oprah's new book-club pick, talks about making fiction from history's great atrocity.

Elena Ferrante's Run-ons: Ferrante’s signature tic is the run-on sentence, a style more obvious in English translation than in Italian.

Adapting 'Le Petit Prince': Pity the person who tries to adapt Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's 'Le Petit Prince.' Just ask Orson Welles.

British Humiliation and Harry Potter: On 'Cursed Child,' British literature, and the formative properties of humiliation.
