What I'm reading at the moment...
... or spot the difference.
I just happened to lay the two novels I'm reading at the moment side-by-side, and was struck by a certain similarity. Well, first impressions tell me that despite the surreal edge to her work, Seraphic's Catholic Quasi-Canadians are an awful lot more normal than Flannery's Protestants of the Deep South.
But why am I promoting Seraphic's new book so assiduously? That's an easy question to answer.
If she can't earn her crust writing, then Seraphic will be forced into a life of gold-digging and will allow her standards to slip to such an extent that she'll start dating Protestants and even seminarians!
Therefore, in order to save the souls of all involved, I'm shilling for Seraphic!
