Franny and Zooey in Costa Rica

Posted by samgr on October 2, 2007

My reactions to reading Franny and Zooey, in order–

1) Man, who is this Lane jerk? What a tool. I would be perfect for Franny. I would understand her and stuff.

2) It´s so tough to be an afflicted genius. Tear.

3) Seymour´s fat lady = little man at Chehaw Station (a la Ralph Ellison),
Seymour´s fat lady = Christ, so little man at Chehaw Station = Christ? Hmmm…

4) Franny and Zooey = The Royal Tenenbaums

I liked it though. And I am in Costa Rica, in Puerto Viejo. (Walking here: Hey man, good ganja? Hey man, want smokes?) More on that to come: the country not the smokes. I am getting a lot of good reading done, though. Discovered Jose Saramago, whom I´d never heard of before.
