Cookies; Books; Madeleine

Francine Prose on reading Veronica by Mary Gaitskill:[it's] rather like biting into a nightmare-inducing, virally loaded madeleine. I think I would have written about this article either way (I'm a big fan of Francine Prose) but the above sentence made it certain.

I'm so proud to be the most famous cookie in literature.

Reading Mary Gaitskill is a distressing experience. [Read this excerpt from the short story Tiny, Smiling Daddy, for a glimpse at her tone.] You can't trust her to love her characters. That said: her writing is tight, good, smart.

more later on this perhaps. But you know, it's all about me, so I just wanted to get the quote about madeleines out there.
