“Nostalgia is masochism and masochism is something masochists love to share.”
Andrei Codrescu, New Orleans, Mon Amour: Twenty Years of Writings from the City

“It's still a mystery to me exactly how I learned the language. [But] I was 19 years old and I had very urgent things to tell girls.”
Andrei Codrescu

“There is a velvety sensuality here at the mouth of the Mississippi that you won't find anywhere else. Tell me what the air feels like at 3 A.M. on a Thursday night in August in Shaker Heights and I bet you won't be able to say because nobody stays up that late. But in New Orleans, I tell you, it's ink and honey passed through silver moonlight.”
Andrei Codrescu, New Orleans, Mon Amour: Twenty Years of Writings from the City

Polls

Okay, looks like horror is our genre for July! I'm kind of glad since I'm doing a lot of serious reading this summer. I'll try not to pick really horrific (i.e. gory, etc.) titles, for the sake of those of you who are more lighthearted. This poll will be open until Saturday, June 13.
