Gayla Hall says: I tried to comment on your blog but apparently, I'm too stupid to figure out how (don't have any of the correct accounts set up? or something?) Here's what I woulda said to your Word Nerd post:Middlesex by that guy who also wrote the Virgin Suicides. It's kind of gross (incest) but the story is compelling (can't believ...e I just used the word "compelling" - what next? "delightful"?). This book will be interrupted soon because I have Gibson's latest, Zero History, on Hold for me at the library. Yeah!
