Soon, I Think

I have to grasp summer tightly. I think about the cold and I can imagine my way back to winter and it's horrible.

I'd like to say something about Susanna Moore's new book, The Big Girls, which I just finished. It's sort of the same book as In the Cut, but a little more deft. Has anyone else noticed this? Dirty, corrupt but sexy cop; intellectual, troubled, overworked narrator. This book actually has shifting narrators and takes place in a prison, which of course makes me interested because I am fascinated by all things prison. But I'd like to know what Moore's fixation with sexy, no-account cops is. The cop in this book is like the exact same character from In the Cut. I even imagined Mark Ruffalo playing him.

I'm not sure how these things work, but I submitted my first blog posting to the Huffington Post on Sunday, so it should only be a matter of time. Which is to say someday.
