    This is all very troublesome. Are all readers of literature supposed to be in line with the gay movement now? And what about democracy — that does not count, either? So the votes of 7 million+ Americans mean nothing? How about looking into the gay judge who did this? Oh no, never happen in the lemming-liberal lit’rary world. No wonder you’re irrelevant!

    I would add “Martin and John” by Dale Peck a riveting book and a must read

    I’d add Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson to Kellogg’s list (a commenter on her post already recommended it, which I’m happy to see–it’s one of the most mesmerizing books.)
