A sneak peek of the sneak peek of books coming fall 2013!
Patrick Leigh Fermor is actually staring at a goat (not shown) in this photo, but feel free to pretend he’s gazing at you.
I met her in Athens last year and talked about this project. She knew Fermor personally so this should be a great read for that reason alone.
I could not be more excited about this book, and not merely because Patrick Leigh Fermor is staring at a goat with the classical smile of subtle happiness.
Goat on a man. Be calm and be under a goat.
Tragos would like to interrupt the madness of his early summer to tell you he will be back soon.
Chris Caldwell, “Against Snoopy”:
Charlie Brown is optimistic enough to think he can earn a sense of self-worth, and his willingness to do so by exposing himself to fresh humiliations is the dramatic engine that drives the strip. The greatest of Charlie Brown’s virtues is his resilience, which is to say his courage. Charlie Brown is ambitious. He manages the baseball team. He’s the pitcher, not a scrub. He may be a loser, but he’s, strangely, a leader at the same time. This makes his mood swings truly bipolar in their magnificence: he vacillates not between being kinda happy and kinda unhappy, but between being a “hero” and being a “goat.”
The hero and the goat have and always will be one and the same.
Goatherd boy & goat.
Colson Whitehead, Zone One, p. 51.
This weekend marks my first real foray into the world of zombies. There have already been rewards, but none so promising as this, a Tragos-endrosed piñata reference to be sure.
I consider it severely unfair that it was not I who discovered this statue in this goat pen. I was born for very little in this world of ours. But I born for this moment.
after today, I am definitely in need of a baby goat massage
YES YES YES YES YES
If you are having a bad day, watch this and you will stop being sad!
