I'm actually reading

...this novel right now. I bought it after Miriam Toews mentioned it during her talk at Talking Fresh in 2005, but I hadn't got around to reading it until now.

Good book, that one...

Did you see the recent article in The Guardian Review about the fact that there have been four novels with James as the main character?

(I forget how to make this a neat hypertext link instead of a sprawling URL, but I trust you'll forgive me my absent-mindedness and other related trespasses and just enjoy the article...)

Sounds like a good 'un! I'll pick it up.

Ya, it is very good so far. I've been working on other things, so it will take me a while to get through the novel. Anyhow, I've dog-eared several pages already, passages where he really nails what it's like to be a writer.

Kimmy, I haven't read The Logogryph yet. I'll get my hands on a copy.
