On facebook, Laura Ellen Scott says, “Interesting novels have stuff in them.” She suggests that rather than advertising our texts with formal reviews, we make lists of the stuff inside them. So here’s your activity for the day: In the comment thread, let’s make stuff lists. Could be your own book, could be one you really like. Then maybe when we’re done we can like, I don’t know, come up with something to do with all that stuff.
I guess I should start us off or something, right?
Okay, here is some stuff from a recent project of mine:
starched dresses from Talbot’s hanging in dry cleaner’s plastic
children’s torture games
houses and cars
OK… have at it!
