Sentences (Grenier). On line version.

What can I say? I had to read two books today since I don't teach or drive today. With respect to Ron's recent "test of poetry," it is clear that I value certain of these "sentences" because they are Grenier's. You hear a phrase like "trouble with chess is it doesn't make noise" in relation to Grenier's authorial persona. On the other hand, I know nothing about Grenier except for the work itself.

Even if the book of the day is not very good doesn't it very matter much, since it is only one day. That's what I'm learning. Even the book I most resisted so far, Strand's Blizzard of One becomes tolerable in the context of a sequence of books of which it is only one.
