Currently reading Hanif Kureishi's The Nothing - which deals with a dying man's penchant for revenge and self-torment. Death--or dying--has always been a crucial aspect of Kureishi's works, even his early novels, which are often criticized for not being "serious enough." It's clear, bracing prose; no embellishment, but still very provocative.


I'm also grading some student papers, and it is quite interesting that many students have mistaken psychological sublimation for chemical sublimation. I wonder if this was done deliberately, to see how I would react. Regardless, I'm priming myself for some very interesting conversations soon. But I gotta admit, it is quite hilarious if this is deliberate.
