abstruse unfinished commentary

about correspondence


Discordant notes

Gotham under siege: The best bookstore in NY held for ransom: The NYSun concludes: "When the previous location went on the market, Woody Allen expressed interest in the 'Wise Men Fish Here' sign, according to the Web site" -- fair-play turn-about on the last time GBM was in the news: "Materials related to the life and career of Woody Allen have been acquired by the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at The University of Texas at Austin. The collection was compiled by Andreas Brown of the Gotham Book Mart & Gallery in New York." (Maybe time to call Kawaga?)

With pardon gone begging and amnesty annulled, it's worth recalling that effects driven from the poles of the political spectrum pervaded: The Long Night of Francisco Sanctis by Humberto Costantini [Norman Thomas di Giovanni trans] serves as counterpoint to Roberto BolaƱo's By Night in Chile, which it no doubt influenced, down to the final pivot-point.
