For Christmas, got a nice Italian lit journal from the missus with stories and interviews with Haruki Murakami, Russell Banks, and others. Very great. After Christmas, I received review copies of Keith Lee Morris’ The Dart League King (which Maud rightly praised here) and an audiobook edition of The Elements of Style, which I think I publicly drooled over on these pages at some point. I’ve only had time to listen to the introductions. It makes me want to give Frank McCourt a hug.
