THE YEAR IN LITERATURE: In the last year, I have read novels -- in some cases two or more novels -- by William Burroughs, Michael Chabon, Daniel Clowes, Max Ernst, Graham Greene, Alfred Jarry, Ken Layne, Jonathan Lethem, Ken MacLeod, Haruki Murakami, Frans Masereel, Tim Powers, Greg Rucka & Steve Lieber, B. Traven, and Gore Vidal. And probably others I'm temporarily forgetting.
None of them were published in 2002. I therefore have absolutely no thoughts on the state of fiction in the last year.
This end-of-the-year-roundup thing is easier than I thought.
