“I once drank a bit too enthusiastically at a reading, and treated Thisbe Nissen to a demonstration (if I recall correctly, and I hope I don’t) of all the different ways my dog was able to bark. Truly a high point in my literary life. Sorry, Thisbe Nissen.”

“Awww Do people really not know how to get into James Joyce?  It’s easy!  In order.  Dubliners, Portrait of an Artist, Ulysses… then STOP!  For the love of God stop after Ulysses whatever you do!”

“It only seems natural that content APPRECIATION and fanaticism would head that way as well, and that there would be a social networking movement dedicated towards this concept.

“Totally agree that Ron should have died. Rowling was drawing from so many classic themes and archetypes that the “best friend who dies and needs avenging” should be in the mix. I think it would have given Harry’s final battle with Voldemort even more weight.”
