11:41 PM: I cannot believe that won a Pulitzer Prize. At the risk of sounding like one of its characters, it was banal. A tedious predictable story about people I don't like doing cliched things, with all The Important Lessons underlined so much, it was like reading one of those used paperbacks where the last owner HIGHLIGHTS EVERYTHING and writes "**** IMPORTANT!!!! ****" in the margins.
Gosh, it sure was worth all the hassle and burnt bridges.
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
