  • What It Was Like

    A Novel of Love and Consequence

    "It's really a very simple story. What happened was this: I met this girl and did a very stupid thing. I fell in love. Hard. I know that to some people that makes me an idiot and a loser. What can I say? They're right. I did some extremely foolish things; I'm the first to say it. And they've left me in jail and alone."

    So begins one of the most compelling, emotionally charged,
    and affecting novels you are likely to read this year.

  • Searching for Good Things

    Is it irresponsible to write about anything but TRUMP? I can't get away from him. None of us can. At least with "The Apprentice," we could turn to another channel. Now he's on all our TVs – 24-7-365.

    It's a tsunami of bad news: his press conference, his lies, his attacks on the press. Flynn out, Pruitt confirmed. The whole "shit sandwich" – in some form or another -- every day.

    Will he be impeached, or will he be forced to resign? I'm pretty sure that he's not going to last the full four years. Not with a first month like he's had. But it's going to be a bumpy ride for the whole country on the way to disaster.

    So I grasp for Good Things in the meantime and look for the beach glass in the tsunami.

    GOOD THINGS

    I've been spending lots of time with my grandson Calder whose vocabulary and facility with language are growing every time I see him. He's now pointing to everything and demanding, "Name." He's putting together simple sentences like "I made it" and "I did it." It's thrilling to see this little boy's skills develop right before my eyes.

    I started thinking back on the philosophy of language and linguistics I studied in college. Chomsky was the rage then, and I read SYNTACTIC STRUCTURES and some of his other writings. His work on language acquisition and universal grammar pre-date his now more famous political writings, but for me, he'll always be the father of modern linguistics and one of the intellectual giants of our age.
