After almost a decade in Canada, it’s time for us to move, and we’re now headed to California. I’m taking a blogging break, and will resume once I get my head around the fact that I no longer own any winter coats.
In other news, I recently read Jhumpa Lahiri’s new novel The Lowland, and will post a detailed review shortly, but meanwhile here’s a two word summary. Competence porn. And just in case you live outside the bubble where everyone has read the excerpt in the New Yorker: http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/features/2013/06/10/130610fi_fiction_lahiri
[Update: Much as I’d like to take credit, I didn’t coin the term competence porn. Think it first appeared back in 2009, here: http://kfmonkey.blogspot.ca/2009/08/leverage-204-fairy-godparents-job-post.html]
