    Thanks for this Trevor: I just finished the Gate. Beautifully written although I’ll admit to a certain frustration with the characters. I have a difficult time with passivity, and this was one of those instances.

    Read the Zweig and really loved it. I’ll be reading the Platonov too. Not sure about Butcher’s Crossing yet.

    I didn’t mind the passivity of The Gate, Guy. For me it is reflective of a whole culture. Hey, at least they were active enough to marry in the first place :) .

    Not sure about Butcher’s Crossing yet

    What?! I actually just listened to another podcast where one of the hosts had just read Butcher’s Crossing, calling it one of his favorite novels now. One of the other hosts was thrilled because she had never met anyone else who’d read it, though she always considered it a masterpiece. I haven’t heard from anyone who wasn’t struck by it, but . . . I’m not trying to be pushy or anything :) .

    I’ll think about it. You know how it is. Work gets in the way of reading, damn it.
