The gun.

I don't know what's going to happen, but I'm starting to feel ready.


What book are you reading?

It's The Wine of Youth, by John Fante.

Is it good?

Yeah, he's my favourite.

What sort of book is it?

Um. I don't know how to answer that. It's about the sentences. He has amazing sentences. But I can't explain it to you.

[reading the back] "he possesses a style of deceptive simplicity, full of emotional immediacy and tremendous psychological point"....


I like pictures. I used to read. But I really like pictures.

It's okay, I have to keep working now.


  1. I just remembered something. A while ago I recommended 'Cowgirls get the Blues' and you'd read it and recommended me other stuff which I can't recall or find the comment. I read Fante, on your advice, and it left me two parts trembling and three parts amazed, so um, yeah. Where should I avert my eyes to now, Mr Sherriff? More trembling parts, please.


  2. AAS. Hello. I like it when you drop by.

    I think because you were talking Tom Robbins I thought you should try Still Life With Woodpecker, because it's silly and it's about love and typewriters and red heads and it has heart and I like that.

    Let's start with that, and I'll think of some more, and if you lose these comments, you are always most welcome to email me. x
