Happy new year, everybody!
And happy 90th birthday, Jerome David Salinger.
Let's close the book, so to speak, on my literary endeavors of 08. The last book I read in 2008 was "Hemingway's Chair", which was the best novel I've read by an ex-Monty Python member. It was just okay, actually. A Hemingway-worshipping postal employee gets a measure of revenge when the Postal Service promotes a crooked jerk instead of him. How could it have been better? Well, he could have got the girl. Or, he could have been slightly less psychotic.
