Spring Break

Thanks to all who stop in to read this little blog of mine. It's a bit of a mixed bag, but so is my mind. So there.

I'm going to be away from my desktop and my broadband next week, on an island down on the Third Coast, the Redneck Riviera, the Gulf. Not sure whether I'll be able to post. We'll see.

When I get back I will weigh in on Rooster winner The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which I've just started. I've read most of the books on the list, but haven't really reviewed them. Maybe they can be the subject of future posts. I will say this: I did feel that McCarthy's Remainder had that enduring feel to it—classic, unique, re-readable, overwhelmingly moving ending (despite its pedestrian start).

If you're relatively new to WoW, you can scroll through in my absence and maybe pick up some of the repeating themes and ideas and arguments, not to mention all the cool Monty Python scenes. Oh, and give the Glenn Gould a listen. If I do post this next week, it'll be sporadic.
