It's time for another installment of the
Book Rat Project, the sustained experiment in which a book critic (my Phoenix colleague
Williamson) attempts to act as a human algorithm for a willing subject (me).
After last week’s qualified
disappointment, Eugenia decided to go in a very different direction and
chose David Vann’s newest literary horror story, Dirt.
I had a hard time getting Dirt; in the first 48-hours I don’t think I made it through 15 pages.
But then something clicked and before I knew it I was turning the pages so
quickly I didn’t have time to tweet any excerpts.
