Annie Holmes and 1 other person liked Jeff Buddle's review of Bark: Stories:
Bark by Lorrie Moore
" Because Lorrie Moore is considered by both critics and myself as one of our premiere practitioners of the short story, I feel somewhat responsible for the fact that was I was underwhelmed by this slim volume of 8 stories. Am I missing something?

Now on 2014 Man Booker list! Deservedly.

Everything you (ok, I) desire in a novel: good characters, storyline, ideas, surprises. Intellect AND heart AND eccentricity. And the kind of tart humour that twists the knife. She's a wonder, KJF.

Adolescence, a stream-of-consciousness boarding school drama, stylistically somewhere between Woolf and Macbride, Mrs Dalloway and A Girl is a Half Formed Thing. It held me by the end of the story, despite wafting.

Rumi
“I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you
first come 'round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come
into a room you've just left.

Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.

I want to know the joy
of how you whisper
"more”
Rumi

David Foster Wallace
“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don't bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don't bullshit yourself that you're not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard's vote.”
David Foster Wallace, Up, Simba!
