One of my literary heroes has died after a long illness.   You can read a brief BBC piece here.  No doubt more substantial thoughts will drift out over the next couple of days.

I’ll post more later when I’m able to.


neo-neo realism over at the rushmore academy

I just posted a short piece over at the Rushmore Academy about an article by The New York Times’ film critic A.O. Scott concerning what he perceives as a neo-neo realist movement.  There’s also a link to The New Yorker‘s Richard Brody’s rather testy response.  Both bring up valid points, I think.

…starting to thaw

Well… I’ve been back in America for a little over two and a half months.  I’m starting to thaw out.  And that means… I’m about to start blogging again.

That’s a threat.

See you in a few days.
