Thus Bad Begins by Javier Marías
"After starting a very lightweight novel a week or so ago which I gave up on it fairly early, I realized I now want more out of my fiction than mere entertainment. This provided the perfect anodyne. Rich, dense, meaty European fiction incorporating..." Read more of this review »

Thus Bad Begins by Javier Marías
"It's not really a 5, it's not Moby Dick, but it's a 4.5.

Overwritten.

Still, what Marías has to say is largely worth reading. A study of wrongdoing, small against large, set in Spain after Franco after immunity has been granted to the franquistas &..." Read more of this review »

Jan Hello, gorgeous!


Jeremy Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:

Jeremy Hi Bev!

Here’s wishing you a yippee-filled Yuletime overflowing with yard-long yams, yapping yoyo-yanking yetis, yak-milk yeast-cakes, and yellow yarn-yielding year-end yard-gnomes.

-Jeremy :)


Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Bev!

If you don't mind sharing--I'm curious, what's your favorite novel(if you have one)?

Also, I was wondering if you'd do me the honor of reading about my debut novel, Vacation. Your support would mean a lot to me. If you'd like to do me this honor, feel free to click here:
http://www.hauntedhousedressing.com/v...

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous fates, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

-Jeremy :)
