Over on Dovegreyreader’s blog today she writes about GIFT day, organised by Canongate for the publication of Lewis Hyde’s book, The Gift, which argues
that we should keep some parts of our social, cultural and spiritual life out of the marketplace.
He believes that the rise of capitalism has brought about the decline of the creative spirit.
You can sign up with Canongate to make a gift on 15 December and if you’re among the first 100 to do so they will send you a free copy of Lewis Hyde’s book. Hurry over to Dovegreyreader’s blog, 2 November post.
I think it’s a wonderful idea … I’m going to write something and I’ll probably write what I write in one of the two categories Canongate suggest. Because the best things in life are free, aren’t they?
