Onward and Downward

There's an interview with Margaret Atwood today in the New York Times Magazine which is perhaps the most boring interview with a writer I've ever seen. She discusses household debt and national debt. I'm not kidding. Idea: What wood hast thou shat today which one namest gold?

Reading: What Stories Are: Narrative Theory and Interpretation, just for the fun of it. Thomas M. Leitch. Best quote so far: "The Primary purpose of the work of art is to provide rules within which a given meaning can operate."

Reading: Decided to read Will Self's fabulous book My Idea of Fun for the third time. It's the sort of book that should be read once ever year or two. Get it and tell me how you liked it.
