Dave Russell and 36 other people liked Kinga's review of The Ambassadors:
The Ambassadors by Henry James
"This book asks a lot from the reader and offers precious little in return. Of course, those who gave it five stars must disagree and think this frustrating word salad was all worth it.

I could barely stand it. The neurotic prose, that seemed so uns..." Read more of this review »

Poetry (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: For now I'm just going to post this one poem. It's the only I've written that doesn't make me wince when I reread it.
City Beat Stories (Literature & Fiction)
2 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: These are stories I wrote for San Diego City Beat's Fiction 101 contest (the best stories under 101 words.) The first one won an honorable mention despite its stupid title. The second was printed without a mention of any kind. BTW, if you want to know what a pataphor is, consult wikipedia. That's where I learned of them. Also, Pedro Edelstein is the name of my chihuahua/dachshund mix. Everything else is purely fictional.
