Mine would be Lady Lily Arbor (never had a pet, except for two fish who I never named)
Tao Lin, writing in The New York Observer, about the what the hell “future of the novel” means:
A certain literary discourse, about what others should or shouldn’t be doing with their art, will probably always exist as a distraction from writing novels. I discerned this afresh while studying said discourse for my addition, arguably, in terms of “the future of the novel,” to the discourse. My addition—herein, itself a distraction from the composition of my third novel—summarizes part of the discourse I’ve studied, then asks, “What different kinds of novels actually exist?” and “What, then, is the future of the novel?” and can be read, in entirety, as an effort, while distracted, to encourage myself (by first discerning what exists in the absence of distractions and if I desire that) to be less distracted in the future.
Just talked for a long time to a friend of one of my other friends. He’s really funny and sarcastic, and I talked to him waaay longer than I anticipated…the kind of conversation I haven’t had in a long time! So I’m happy right now :)
