January 29, 2011 So, you all remember my friends Victor and Cathryn, who live in the now-distant land of Los Angeles. Cathryn and I are best friends from long, long ago in the seventies, when we lived together in an apartment whose living room we painted Grecian Rose, which made it very Bordello-like, and we thought we were awesome. She is my cheap friend who brings fine maple syrup into IHOP, which she introduced me to when I first landed in La-La Land three years ago.
I have not read any of these books (other than passages here and there), though I have a copy of each in my library. Given your takes on the dense, repetitive, and disjointed texts, is it possible a) that they were never intended to be read cover to cover and/or b) that they made for easier reading/listening during the centuries in which they were respectively written, revised. and governed societies much more impactfully and broadly than the 21st century? P.S. ring dings are worthy items to be finished in their entireties and you both should be proud of the accomplishment.
