"I have badly neglected this book of late, I'm afraid. I'd say it's due to other concerns and not feeling well (which is true), but that is no excuse. Sadly, I must do so a little bit further as it is now INFINITE JEST MONTH (are you excited? I'm excited). It hasn't lost my interest, so perhaps I'll try to inch my way through (do people in Europe say "centimeter my way through" or some such nonsense?)." Aug 06, 2012 09:31PM

Clear rating
I bought this book out of loyalty to Greg, since I've been a devoted reader of Futility Closet for years, and it's still one of my favourite websites. This book gets a relatively low rating from me merely because the book is just an edited collection...more

Marching Out Of Step (Poetry)

Description: This is a haiku I wrote. I don't normally put my writing up here, and I don't really intend to start, but I just felt like showing this to the world. I'm especially interested in anyone's opinion on word choice (re: the brackets).
