Of Men and Books

Hi,  

I guess I am not in the same league as those who think that In the Cemetery is a ‘perfect miniature’. I’ll admit I liked it better than the other stories, but it is also filled with ‘useless stuff’ (what happened to the minimalist theory?), which you’ll understand when you read it. You are right about Drabble. Then again, we could list every writer and analyze his/her work, and in the end, it’s all a matter of personal taste. Chaque personne à son gout. 

Also, very true what you say about spending the whole day ON THE JOB. This seems to be the malaise of middle class professionals and responsible for so much of our stress.

In reply to your question with regards to men, I don’t really know where I’m coming from or where I’m going these days, so … young, old, none - all have merit.

I should be working. This is a perfect example of what we are talking about, feeling guilty on a Saturday for not being productive. But I am trying to answer great existential questions. That has to have some merit.

Soon,

Sarah
