Geoff Dyer reviewed the book “Subtle Bodies” by Norman Rush in NYT; the last paragraph of the review:

“A creaking of novelistic machinery can be heard as the gathering’s darker purpose is winched into action but not loudly enough to disturb our stay in these sprightly pages. It’s the length of our residence on the premises — as the author had worried — that’s a matter of some regret. We actually wish we could have booked in for a bit longer. I mean, what’s the rush?”

(Read the review here.)

We are not doomed to fail; we are doomed to paronomasia. (At least the sprightly ones.)
