It has been brought to my attention that my blog has been "dour" and "no fun" this week, which is kind of true. That said, I defy you to read about slavery and Joan Didion's dead family back-to-back and be any happier about it than I was.
I think that a theme week would totally cheer up my reading habits. Any suggestions?
Also, coming next week:
Brady has some interesting things to say about detective stories, if he would ever finish writing them down.
