W. Kandinsky: "There are no 'musts' in art." T.S. Eliot: "There is no freedom in art." Dostoievski character, after the ancient Middle East epigram: "Everything is permitted." (R-rated weblog. Since one has been advised there is no Literature anymore, or even literature, only writing, one proceeds on the premise that this weblog qualifies as not-meaningless, since it is, or appears to be, a form of "writing."

American Mischief / Alan Lelchuk
A novel of boyish fantasia packaged as realism; one might as well play a video game.
Distinctly not to say bizarrely misinformative on the "dating" practices of women in Cambridge. The milieu of the People's Republic is adequately, in places carefully, observed, but the style is humdrum.
