1. I just read Bennett Sims’s beautiful new novel, A Questionable Shape.  It deals with the undead, relationships, and the private chaos that follows public chaos.


2. I’ve been reading, for months, Roland Barthes’s A Lover’s Discourse.  I’m reading the sections out of order.  It’s got me thinking about the telephone and form and desire.


3. My friend Miguel bought me a copy of the epistolary novella Lady Susan by Jane Austen, which I’ve just started.  Lady Susan, evidently, is a beautiful and cunning seductress.


4. I’m rereading Nadja by André Breton, a book I love, and a study in narcissism, idealization, and obsession, a few of the subjects that interest me most.


5. I’m slowly reading Gustave Flaubert’s Sentimental Education, also a study in all of the above.
