Bits


Occasionally, I see a bit in a review that makes me think, "Gah! I wish I'd written that myself." Perhaps it's quite thoughtful, maybe funny, concise and oddly fitting. This sardonic bit from the New York Times review of The Gargoyle (Andrew Davidson) made me giggle:

The lovers in “The Gargoyle” have the intimacy of roommates who hook up when they get drunk, not a time-defying passion.
I can picture it, can't you?

  1. I am so in love with the cover of that book. I don't care if the book is any good, I need that cover on my shelves.

  2. Oh I know! I love it, too...especially the removable wrap with the flames underneath.

    Have you read this yet?? I've read good and bad reviews....not sure whether I should pick it up or not. Of course, the cover is wonderful!

  4. I haven't read it yet, Stephanie. In fact, I need to frolic off to the library website and see if they even have a copy. I'm tempted to buy, but I'm resisting!
