WINTERSET: "I eat as much as I ever did, I drink more than I should, and my sex life is none of your goddamned business!" from a stagecoach in the sky



Be all that as it may, meanwhile:
'In other news…'
11th June 2010

Friday: Have you ever had the feeling that comes with reading the last line of a great book? That happened for me today.

I finished Anne Enright's 'The Gathering'. You get increasingly apprehensive for several reasons: how will it end?; will it tie up ends?; will it satisfy?; how will you feel knowing there's no more thrill and education and entertainment and amazement waiting just over the page…?

Payton, what relevance the pills?
I want to reread it, it is so good. It did win the 2007 Man Booker Prize, so others must concur regarding its quality.

I finished it in fact at Swan Aquatic while Bob splashed about like a duck long dispossessed. I also had the pleasure of another catch up with Allan Schintu, and had the opportunity to learn of a manuscript he has begun about his recent experiences in life, including two near death occasions; I encouraged him with his writing, which he appears to have quite a flair for, judging by some sample sentences he shared with me – but then 30 years of journalism couldn't hurt! – and I look forward to reading his published work one day. It is wonderful to see how people vivify when talking about something dear to them.

We human beings cannot truly live by bread alone…

More story possibly coming…

A book to read over and over? Now that is REAL writing!

Gladys: I am approaching half way through my second reading of 'The Gathering', and I readily confess to being in awe of Anne Enright's mastery of storytelling, and her grasp of human nature.

If I could write like her I would just float away.
