I'm still mulling over the bravery of Will Eno's play "The Flu Season," which I read a few weeks ago. It has flitted about the edges of my mind since. Currently I'm reading Junot Diaz's short story collection Drown, in part because I loved his novel and in part because you rarely see central New Jersey get any literary love, and rereading Anthony Doerr's collection The Shell Collector, because I finally found my copy. I'm also rereading Mikhal Gilmore's Shot In The Heart--but then, I am always rereading that, and will keep on re- and re- and rereading it until I figure out how the heck he managed to write it.
