I have started to flip through reviews of The Bishop's Man on the Internet.
I am not sure that people actually understand what evil is - and this evil in particular. On a surface scan, looks like a few people have problems with the book. However, my gut feeling that this was going to be a comfort to people is probably not far from the truth.
I'll write comments as I read the reviews and the comments on the reviews.
I wonder if David Clohessey (nat. dir. of SNAP) has read the book. He commented on the NYT's short blurb on the Giller Prize winner. It was relatively generic - good when people write about these things
I am going to watch Doubt next week - I'll write a review of that as well.
This blog has morphed as my understanding of the past has morphed. The blog is more and more a midrash on my writing and my life.
