It feels good to know and care for people so wonderfully receptive to heavily placed hints.

The Economist may have convinced me to acquire Messud’s The Emperor Children (from the library, if it’s there). It is more likely I have been subliminally coerced by the universal adulation. Or I was in a good mood.

There is a good review of The Immoralist by Andre Gide at Conversational Reading. I love reading good reviews because they take me to literary places undiscovered or overlooked. A lot of people’s disdain for critics stem from the unwarranted, unjustified, egotistical idea that their experience is the only one that matters.

Stacey’s visual representation of her experience with Evensong by Gail Godwin is not to be missed. Too funny.

You must visit Japonisme. Lotusgreen presents a lot of intriguing, impressive Japanese or Japanese-influenced art with informed commentary.  It is my new favourite site.
