THOUGHTS I'M HAVING WHILE READING FRANZEN'S "THE CORRECTIONS".
Got this book cheap at a bargain store. I remember how buzzy it was back in the day so I'm giving it a try.
- •I don't think I'm cut out for "serious fiction." More like DEPRESSING fiction. Maybe it picks up, but so far all I can think is "yeah, this is gonna end sad."
- •I've got 2 new comic trade paperbacks and I am finding it very hard to commit to finishing this weird family drama.
- •Franzen is a good writer. I'm interested in what's happening and he's got great imagery. Also impressed with the level of detail he's put in.
- •My sense of foreboding on this one makes me believe (even further) that I would not be able to do Foster Wallace's stuff.
