I usually go to great effort to NOT post on topics most bloggers are blogging about, hence the conspicuous lack of Frey-related posts. But sometimes the popular press hits home.
Many bloggers seemed to have been near-fainting when they read that GarcÃa MÃ¡rquez stopped writing:
“I’ve stopped writing,” the author told Barcelona’s La Vanguardia in an interview at his home in Mexico. “2005 was the first year in my life that I didn’t write a line.”
It’s not the end of the world, people (and this coming from a mega-fan). He may write again, but he doesn’t want to force anything. Plus, the man’s 78. It’s his prerogative. In fact, I say good for him.
I read something on Monday that has no positive spin: Wendy Wasserstein died. Read about it in the Miami Herald, Forbes, or the New York Times. She was only 55 and leaves behind a 7-year-old daughter. I remember reading The Sisters Rosensweig as an undergraduate and still have it on my shelf.
I’ll probably post on this again, so don’t hold it against me:
Freeload Press, a textbook company, is offering books for free. How? Corporate sponsorship.
Love the name.
On a final note, what are the chances that two tv shows I watch would use the same word incorrectly within a one week time span? For the record:
hang: to suspend by the neck until dead especially as a form of execution
hung: to hold or bear in a suspended or inclined manner
