Blips and Such

Okay, what's going on . . . hmmm

Well, I finished The Young Manhood of Studs Lonigan. Great book. Tough book. It's hard to explain, really. I mean, you don't like Studs, but you don't hate him. In some ways, after finishing it, you realize that it's a sociological study. Studs is a product of environment...almost doomed to his fate. The ending is perfect. Books like this could still be written...if writers were interested in looking at the world as opposed to trying to escape it.

Still have that reading coming up on Friday, Feb 5th at the Magic Bean Coffee Shop on State Street in Saginaw. Both Tim Kenyon and I will be reading short stories.

Speaking of reading short stories, I've read over 100 stories for this anthology I'm involved in for Bottom Dog Press called On the Clock. I forgot how time-consuming editing can be.
