what our characters do all day

Inside a book review at Ward Six, novelist J. Robert Lennon begins a discussion that quickly moves into the Comments section on plot or the lack-thereof, with a sidebar on fiction vs. reality in character and place. I threw in my two cents based on In Hoboken as well as the novels I'm working on now, The Dog House and The Night Door.

In other news...Kristina is coming home this week! A valiant return after her 2-month African adventure. To quote David Wilcox, "How you get up there?"

And...if you're anywhere near it this weekend, here's where you should spend your time and money. Gregg Cagno, Peter Mulvey, Ellis Paul...all good, baby. All good.
