finished jon jeffrey's boyfriend material today. a light, breezy, enjoyable read. but it ain't proust. but it ain't supposed to be. am now back into will self's new novel, dorian, a reworking, complete wholescale theft of wilde's picture of dorian gray, only re-set in the world of '80s london's gay demi-monde. interesting. I find self's prose style a bit difficult at times - and am not sure he'll ever top his early short story "a rock of crack as big as the ritz" - but this is an oddly compelling book. am also reading a book published in conjunction with the weather channel's 20th anniversary last year. I "heart" the weather channel.
