This is about a year and a half of reading for me. I have found a book I hate as much as Pamela in this group, but so many that more than make up for this, thank god. Four of these are rereads and there are over forty authors I'd never read before. If you don't mind, I will leave you with two short excerpts...
from "Blonder Heads Prevailed" (Off Ramp, Hank Stuever):
Miss America is a nerd, with a tragic devotion to America's most popular religion: public relations. She doesn't tell lies, but she doesn't tell truths, either.
from Preface, In the Heart of the Heart of the Country (William H. Gass):
Icicles once dripped solidly from my eaves, for instance. I thought them remarkable because they seemed to grow as a consequence of their own grief, and I wondered whether my feelings would freeze to me by the time they had traveled my length
