Money might be an object, but when it comes to books I seem to acquire without reason, then reason out how to make ends meet.</p> Novel re: dang it 2008-09-29T17:57:15+00:00 2008-09-29T17:57:15+00:00 <p>Between packing, moving, revising short stories and writing a novel&#8230;not so much!</p> <p>But at least it&#8217;s already on the shelf, right?

This book is what The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay wished it could be. And I really liked AAKC.</p> Jeannine Hall Gailey
