What I Read This Morning - 7

If you ever find yourself wondering why people don't read books any more, consider this review:

By writing a novel about a conventional novelist writing about a conventional man, J.M. Coetzee's latest work illuminates the role of the novel and cuts through typical and tired theories on fiction.

I'm not certain I've ever read a blurb that made me less interested in a novel. That gave me more of a desire to never read another book.

And I'm a person who normally reads 200 or more new books a year.

"cuts through"? More like "epitomizes"....
