I'm going to start Never Let Me Go from Kazuo Ishiguro, Man Booker Prize Finalist...must not have won. Finished that other, Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This from Ishiguro will be #45 for the year...I think...my 'goal' a hundred...I'm 8 stories ahead of the curve. This next is "a devastating new novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss." Devastating. Heh! Maybe it's Thursday but that hit the funny bone. Have you ever been devastating? I'm going to try that one out on the wife this morning. Honey, you look devastating! I think it'll fly. I hope, anyway. Wish me luck.
