They all said I was mad, but I’ll show’em!
The purpose of this blog is to produce a chronicle of my fleeting fancies, candid opinions, and exciting observations. Not exactly original. Nevertheless, if I don’t whittle away at something in the near future, I will soon be trying to reanimate corpses, or worse, making attempts to communicate my deranged thoughts and feelings to others directly. Perhaps, if only hidden in the murky depths of a comments section, you may even find something rather profound.
There will be reviews! There will be tirades! There will be a tea-related post at some point! Who could ask for anything more?
P.S. I have just finished Pond by Claire-Louise Bennett (Fitzcarraldo Editions, 2015), and was disconcerted to discover that she has achieved all I have set out to do, only with a work of fiction (well, at least in “Oh, Tomato Puree” and “Stir-Fry”). Needless to say, she executes it all with a greater level of literary skill, depth, and wit than I can ever hope to manage…Ho-hum. Perhaps I will review it at some stage. I certainly recommend it.
