Re: Breaking Bad

A few episodes into season three and I'm with you guys - absolutely incredible. Then again, according to you, I haven't seen anything yet.

Re: Steven Millhauser

I thought Edwin Mullhouse was excellent and I recently picked up a used copy of Martin Dressler. I've also added one of his story collections to my wish list based on your blog.

I read and enjoyed True Grit and keep meaning to pick up something else by him. What would your recommend next?

Re: Reviving book reviews on Palimpsest

I, too, am thrilled so see signs of life around here. It's been way too long since I've written anything substantial so I'll try to remedy that soon.

Re: Recent Purchases 2012

My 85-year-old grandma loves Gene Stratton Porter. She has been collecting her books for years and has all her novels. Can't say I've ever been tempted to pick one up, though.
