Selling over 50 million records worldwide, and scoring a massive 14 number one singles in the UK, t he five Irish heartthrobs were riding high on their incredible success. The group originally started as a five piece before Bryan McFadden made the decision to leave the band in to spend more time of his family and work on solo projects.
Westlife continued without Bryan for a further eight years, but decided to call it quits in , after releasing a statement which revealed they all wanted a break and the chance to look at new ventures. But what exactly has everyone been up to since that final farewell tour?
A haunting, sharp, splendidly articulate novel. An energetic, unorthodox, quintessentially American vision of America. Look at Me is the real thing—brave, honest, unflinching. An unlikely blend of tabloid luridness and brainy cultural commentary.
Jennifer Egan is the author of several novels and a short story collection. Her new novel, Manhattan Beach, published last fall and a New York Times bestseller, has been awarded the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.
Jennifer Egan “‘Close your eyes and slowly count backward from ten. A young spy on a mission logs her observations. The result is an intense thriller, and a minute dissection of the experience of a woman whose beauty is also her camouflage, for whom control relies on submission: Originally published online via Twitter by NYerFiction, Jennifer Egan’s first new fiction since the phenomenal success of “A Visit From the Goon Squad” is a taut, compulsive work of unrelenting genius.
The atomised structure made this piece seem like a possible candidate for serialization on Twitter – something I’d long been interested in trying. Writing fiction for Twitter is not a new idea, of course, but it’s a rich one – because of the intimacy of reaching people through their phones, and because of the odd poetry that can happen in characters.
Jon Scieszka first put this idea into my head with his spectacular meta-fictional picture book, “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!
As it was in , the outpouring of enthusiasm for the program this year was immediate.

By , Stein had already witnessed the industrialisation of America and the new technologies of standardisation and control unleashed by Fordism and Taylorism. Had she lived longer into the 20th century, one can only imagine what she would have made of the many organisation men, hidden persuaders and lonely crowds still to come, or of the other ideological prisons created by the national security state and the Cold War.
It already seems as if it was a long time ago that America, transitioning from industrial to consumer capitalism, lurched into the age of postmodernity. The brisk destruction of old ways and the foreclosing of possibilities have become such an accepted fact — not least in the social sciences, from Daniel Bell to Fredric Jameson — that it is easy to forget what a large-scale re-engineering of human lives they have led to.
Jennifer Egan, an American writer, is rare for still being able to register incredulity at the weirdness of this process. In her novel Look at Me , she makes one of her main characters, an isolated intellectual, spell it all out: The peculiar realities, dreams and fears of public life — ruthless corporations, terrorist sleeper cells, imperial presidencies, remote wars — can lead to an oppressive shapelessness, unsuited to the plot-driven mimetic realism minted in the 19th century.
The strain on language can be too great; the attempted fusion of the political with the personal can take on a bewilderingly occult quality. The virtues of the realist tradition — irony, historical texture and a strong point of view — can be combined with a modernist aesthetic of fragmentation and dissolution.

When we reach even further back in time, long before the advent of systems of writing, we are completely at a loss as to the forms of music prehistoric humans might have preferred. But we do know that music was likely a part of their everyday lives, as it is ours, and we have some sound evidence for the kinds of instruments they played. In , archeologists discovered fragments of flutes carved from vulture and mammoth bones at a Stone Age cave site in southern Germany called Hohle Fels.
These instruments date back 42, to 43, years and may supplant earlier findings of flutes at a nearby site dating back 35, years. It is perhaps possible that the much-underestimated Neanderthals made their own flutes. Or so a discovery of a flute made from a cave bear femur might suggest. Found by archeologist Ivan Turk in a Neanderthal campsite at Divje Babe in northwestern Slovenia, this instrument above is estimated to be over 43, years old and perhaps as much as 80, years old.
You can hear it played at the top of the post by Slovenian musician Ljuben Dimkaroski.
