Lorrie Moore

I'm in a Lorrie Moore phase. I've been in it for a long time, going back and forth chronologically in her bibliography. Reading her first novel, "Anagrams," at the moment. Is there a greater writer on the planet? I would say more but I wouldn't say it as well as Lorrie Moore, so what's the point? Just kidding. Someday I will try to write like Lorrie Moore, be a fraction as good, and be happy about it.

Hats off to Lorrie Moore, for sure. Her short story, "People Like That Are the Only People Here: Canonical Babbling in Peed Onk" got me hooked and I look forward _A Gate at the Stairs_ on vacation next week.

Thanks for your comment, Lynne, if you're just getting starting reading her novels you've got some real treats in store!
