who is upbeat [there is probably asking too much].

If you’ve read this blog, you may have noticed that I rhapsodize about writers who are classic DWEM like Trollope and James. Even David Foster Wallace, who shouldn’t be, is a DWEM. So, while I’m between book discussion groups, I’ve decided to read LW [living writers] to see if I can find greatness/very goodness. I’ve started my exploration with Jonathan Franzen and Karen Russell. More anon.
