Everyone who uses the "internet" will be excited and fascinated to know that I am now reading PIANO by Jean Echenoz. It is the second Echenoz book I have picked up in recent weeks. Page count: 179. Just on the high end of my range! And there's a reference to the Dean and Jerry movie ARTISTS AND MODELS on page 24. I think I have contracted Echenoz Fever, a bad case, but I should think of a better word, a play on "eczema" maybe. Echenozma? I'll work on it. In the meantime, you know how suggestible I am because I brag about it all the time. So I will tell you that I have finished a decent draft of my "detective" novel and have produced about six pages - thanks to Echenoz - of a "French" novel. SOMEBODY STOP ME BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!
