Odradek’s Joy by Adam Foulds

Odradek’s Joy is a weekly piece of writing from award-winning novelist and poet Adam Foulds.

Odradek’s Joy centres on discussions of life-enhancing artworks for enjoyment and clarification, with occasional theorising about fiction and poetry. It provides links to wonderful things and much peer-to-peer, you-must-try-this sharing. Lots of music, visual art, literature, film. There is also an unremitting attempt to describe the weather.

I want to build a community of enthusiasm and interest. I want you to join in a conversation.
