Everything You Know

Am now thoroughly enjoying Zoë Heller's first novel, Everything You Know (2000). All three of her novels perform double duty as insightful studies in human psychology and manners.

A sample sentence: "I nodded again and smiled, wondering how to get away."*

Dear reader, how many times have you found yourself in this situation?  How do you get away?

*(Everything You Know, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2000, first edition, page 114).

Today's Rune: Harvest.

I usually awkwardly mumble that I have to go now and leave. I'm not very subtle.

Have THE BELIEVER sitting on my shelf. Some day I will get to it.
