Read from January 11 to 20, 2012

Who knew I could get so bored by a Hemon collection of short stories? I've heard him speak; I've loved the work he's presented on stage, yet I can't wait for this book to be over already.

The material isn't dull. I like the tales o exiles and immigrants and the gloriously observed bizarrerie of the America that they are confronted with. It's just a bit cold, this book. Very intellectualized, somewhat choked emotionally.

Yawn. I already know enough men like that. Don't need them to be my narrators.
