reading report

read ben learner’s novel.  liked it a lot.  finished austerlitz– noted lines about magic.  p.172 for example “…I can see her… striking her forehead with the flat of her hand, and crying out, chanting the syllables one by one: I do not un der stand it!  I do not un der stand it!  I shall nev er un der stand it!”  but so many of the movements and concerns of this book are related to mine…

also reading more susan steinberg and trying to make myself read freud’s book on jokes god i have a hard time paying attention to nonfiction.  it just sounds so crappy and i have to pick it for subject not for style so my style pickiness is a real problem…
