In the Critics this week (sort of)

New fiction by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Ryan Gilbey on superhero films and more.

By Staff Blogger

There’s no New Statesman this week – pick up our Easter double issue if you haven’t already. In the meantime, we advise you to peruse the new story by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, or Slavoj Zizek’s piece in praise of St Paul as a political radical.

You can see highlights of our Greatest Political Photographs collectors’ supplement, and Jonathan Derbyshire reviews the new exhibition of paintings and installations by Takeshi Kitano at the Fondation Cartier. Ryan Gilbey is not convinced by the hype surrounding the superhero film Kick-Ass, while Gina Allum responds to Andrew Billen’s review of the new RSC play The Gods Weep.

Normal service is resumed on Thursday 15 April.
