Dead End

You know you've reached the end of the slowspeed train line when the poster boy for the art is Jonathan Franzen, a dull personality with a dull style and dull slow-witted thoughts. Yes, yes, the bourgie impossibly dull set who are comfortable or removed or clueless enough they're no longer living in the world-- only in their bubbles-- appreciate the guy. Good for them.

I don't know if anyone reads my "premium" blog at
but I'll be posting some further thoughts on the situation of literature
