The sequel to "The Last Word" is on the way...look for it later this summer. And if you haven't read the first chronicle of the adventures of Sal, Camden, and the other inmates of the asylum that is The Last Word Bookstore, check out my "Books" section using the tab at the top of the page.
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Great Gatsby"
Anyone who knows me knows that I worship the rain-swept water that Hemingway walks on. It is also true that Maugham's "The Razor's Edge" is my favorite novel, and one I re-read every year. But after just reading "The Great Gatsby" again, it is clear that this is the finest novel ever written. I won't go into a long scholarly monologue...just go read it. Now.
