I know people for whom Don DeLillo's Underworld would serve as the ideal self-help manual. But they would have to read it -- and in an introspective frame of mind -- for that to happen. Sadly, although there's a decent chance of the former condition being met, the latter one is a remote possibility at best.

Mode: overwarm
Muse: burble, drip, tick

AMERICANA is a better self-help book, no?

That depends on the person. Not everyone likes Underworld, I realize, but I'm a huge fan.

I am Nick Shay.

But in the very act of making that declaration, you become someone else. I think that's the point of facilitating that sort of identification, don't you?

Nick Shay is large. He contains contradictions.

He's all about containment, isn't he?

I've changed my mind. I'm NOT Nick Shay.

I'll read it soon. I could use a sef-help novel.
