Ice-Shirt Coda

I finished the Vollmann Tuesday night and feel that my appreciation was tempered by an interview statement where Vollmann admitted that he didn't feeel the novel's conclusion was sufficient.

Last night N and I watched Jarmusch's Dead Man and I appreciated his delicate handling of the encounter between indigenous and Other.

The Creation myths explored in the Ice-Shirt were engaging nonetheless.

Fathers and Crows will be next for my Vollmann exploration, that will likely be a week or so, as determined by the ongoing enjoyment of the Archipelago.
