Hi Marina,

Loved your piece on Franzen - left a comment on the Daily Beast too.  You make great points in your comparison - and one can even take it further, in terms of writing style, too. Makes my blood boil. It's bad enough when the "lighter" female authors are disparaged, but to go after Wharton????????? Just shows that it's not about worth, but sexism.

Marina, TUWH really is delightful. Although I grew up in a very different place and culture, you bring me right back to eighth grade... and yet, differently, and with a growing understanding. I'm eager both to finish it and to read your other works. I also took a look at your husband's website, and we definitely do share some interests.

So many new books to add to my reading list!

Hi Marina! Thanks for your comment, and for your feedback on those Recessionwire posts -- was really fun bumping into you! Had we both been at NCRW at the same time, I know we would have majorly hit it off. Good to reconnect with you here. I have a few of the anthologies you have essays in and look forward to revisiting them, now that I know you're in them -- ! I hope our paths cross again soon.
