Ptarmigan

a grouse with completely feathered feet

3/01/2004

Picked up Some Versions of Pastoral after bookhunting with our friend David in Stillwater. There are gaps in my reading that one could drive Hummers through; worse, I don't even know what is a useful gap or not. Anyway, there's some interesting material therein about pastoralia and class, as well as Lewis Carroll; maybe I'll give a report on my reading, although I don't think it's necessarily ever a case of textual wizardry on my part when I talk about books I like. (re: The first year of Ptarmigan, where I avoided the questions altogether, in favor of an elaborate puppet show, which I still look back on kinda fondly.)
