If one reads without worrying, it's utterly
gorgeous. The sort of gorgeousness one
expects from high-end trade publishers.
The right vehicle for the right job--that's
what we need to keep in mind, no matter
what. Done as well as humans do it, small
wonders come down the pike, one after
another. Systematically changing one's
perspectives until some final arrangement is
suddenly arrived at when we least expect it.
I think of Robert Merrill's Escamillo and
shivers run down my back. Divergent
impulses--yoking them together. Decisive
moments we sometimes live to regret.
