A Canadian Mennonite's sodden sermonizing on movies, music, miscellaneous.
"It looks like this ish of The New Yorker is a keeper."No more dangerous word to domestic tranquility is the two syllable Keeper! Continents have shifted on the whispering of that noun.
It is a marvelous and well timed (for me, that is) piece, isn't it? I've been fretting about the isolation that will inevitably accompany my new work, and Pamuk's essay has helped me to understand that solitude (not isolation) is a necessary part of the process.
DV - yes, the New Yorker box has become fat and ungainly. And there's no New Year's Resolution that will slim it down, either.Searchie - Pamuk's words are indeed encouraging, especially (I think) to anyone who feels as if there is more than one "homeland" beckoning. Godspeed with your writing. Your publisher is lucky to have you.
Thanks for this.
