Maybe He’s Isolating Himself
Posted by: Keir Graff

Horace Engdahl, who earned the admiration of the literary world with his embrace of good writing, regardless of the country it comes from, has resigned as permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy (“Swedish Academy Secretary to Step Down in June,” by Steven McElroy, New York Times). Or maybe I should say that he has become the impermanent secretary of the Swedish Academy.

Anyway, that’s the good news. The less-good news is that Engdahl will continue to serve as a board member. (Via Galleycat.)
