What a coincidence! Spousie and I are moving as well at month's end. Like you, there will undoubtedly be a gap between disconnecting from the old place and reconnecting at the new. Also, I've had PC probs.
Good to hear from you!
Where have you been?
RE: Your current story shares elements with "The Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" by Mark Haddon. Have you read or heard of it?
The reason I am asking is I know that you are quite well read and have something to compare him to. I however, have a rather limited range. So I just wanted to check to be sure this is as good as I think it is. Haha!
The writing is so good that it redeems the detestable nature of the main character, Anthony Patch as well as Fitzgerald's general conflict towards woman. Two main female characters are described as little idiots. Anyway, this book is better than This Side of Paradise, but not as good as Tender is the Night. I think Tender is the Night has more depth of emotion and more tragedy. I know how writing was often reflective of his life.
What do yo think of Fitzgerald as a writer? I'm readiong the Beautiful and the Damned and I hate the main character, but I can't put the book down. The writing i very engaging.
Will there be more installments to your present story (6/12)? If so, would you mind
if I waited until it was complete before weighing in?
Oh my dear almost-countryman-- I broke my hip! Here's the blog:
So that's what you look like.
Hope I was able to give some worthwhile feedback.
