Book of the day. Blizzard of One (Strand). 1998. University City, MO, Public Library.

Ennui. Mine or Mark's? Both. Like Tate without the sense of humor? A polished surface, certainly. "Well-written" with scare quotes. In other words, not so well-written. I don't think there's a memorable image in the book. The Simic, in retrospect, was much sharper.

I have a gift certificate to Subterraneum Books for $15. Purchased for more than that at a Silent Auction for the elementary school. And some Barnes & Nobles credit I got for reviewing a textbook, so I'll be able to get more books today or tomorrow.
