On reading Faulkner; on reading Nabokov.
I am a sucker for snarky essay collections about pop culture (professional envy much, Allison?), and I've been reading about Jill Soloway's new one, Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants (ack! great title, but what a horrible front cover design!), all over the place, most recently in Bookslut. I'll be eager to check it out soon.
