Friday Hangovers

  1. I’m about half-way through and think it’s pretty wonderful. This line is what I’m talking about re: the review, btw: “There is almost nothing exceptional left to be written about children. It’s all been said before,”
    That’s just stupid.

  2. I’ve quite openly expressed my concerns about Mitchell in the past but someone in the trade told me BSG is the one that I’ll enjoy because it loses the tricksiness and gets on with the story (though he also said some of the 1980s signposting was very unsubtle).
    Agree on the stupidity of that comment – if you extrapolate, there’s nothing exceptional left to be written about anything.
    As ever though, let me take this opportunity to recommend “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky, which really is a modern take on “Catcher”.
