The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

12 May 2003

It was a dark and stormy review

I don't know if Robert Burrows' The Great American Parade is truly, as WaPo critic Gene Weingarten says, "the worst novel ever published in the English language," but having grown up on both Bulwer-Lytton and Jackie Collins, I simply have to check this out for myself.

Personally, I'd rather have a real live dead-tree book — I am, after all, a creature of habit — but the online publisher Lulu now has TGAP in e-book and printed-on-demand formats, so it appears I'll get my chance. The hard part, of course, will be finding the time to read the darn thing.
