Comments for Fondling Your Muse

Fondling Your MuseFondling Your Muse: 07/21/07

Happily I can report that Fondling Your Muse was the last of my recent run of unenjoyable reads. This slim tome disguised as an exercise book for aspiring writers is actually a poor attempt at a parody of one of those how-to write books.

Apparently all one needs to do to write a parody is spend 6 years drunk in college while getting a BA and MFA . Then you too can tell really stupid jokes and get them published in a beautifully bound but otherwise pointless book. Whoopee!

Tomorrow I promise to write a real review. It will be on Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett which I'm sure most of you read ages ago.

Thanks for your comment on my Harry Potter post. Can't comment here because it's very difficult to get English books (they are all in french) and I don't know it."
