it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction-or-memoir, old-school

I wasn't sure if I'd like this as much as I've loved his two novels, but I quickly found myself--again!--in love with Leonard Michaels's style and voice. This book is full of great little moments of life, from the mundane mechanics of struggling relationships to anecdotes about other famous writers. In many ways, his observations carry the weight of the deepest philosophical and emotional matters that a man faces in life. I can't tell you how much I am in love with this guy's writing right now--it has the perfect amount of honesty, crankiness, humor, and gritty sadness. He is my new favorite writer and I'm going to read everything he has written. In fact, I just started Shuffle, which also starts with a bunch of journal entries.
