Finished reading it exactly one day before the MA entrance exam it feels like I have recapitulated everything I ve been studying for this exam for the past few months There was Norton anthology of English Literature there adding some depth to my knowledge of the medieval literature and genre of romance I should read Faerie ueen now I guess and also the whole gamut of literary criticism explained way better than the Bressler guy no offence dude Your textbook is still my favorite among the MA sources Also there were hell of a lot of GRE words which kept popping up like a Leitner s learning box only way enjoyable and practical It s probably indecent to acknowledge that in addition to academic stuff it added a whole lot to my knowledge of male and female anatomy or certain parts of anatomy anyway The world is a global campus says Morris Zapp I couldn t agree THANK YOU DAVID LODGE YOU RE COOL SMALL WORLD IS COOL GIANT WORLD IS COOL ACADEMIA IS PROBABLY COOL TOO

Oh yes andOn fear of flyingOne of the things I love about this series is he captures ordinary sensible fears of flying so wellI ve just got off a plane yet again without it falling down in a non prescribed manner But still it s made me think about this situationHave you ever been in a plane sitting in it expecting to take off when the pilot says Attention attention attennnnshhunnn Passengers in order to fly safely we need to take off 100 kgs I m asking for two volunteers and their luggage to leave now and wait for the next plane This is true it really happened And of course nobody believes it If the pilot says 100 kgs or we fall out of the sky then the passengers want at least double that What if somebody s done their arithmetic wrong How can they know 100 kg is the right figureAnd you know what happens Everybody looks at the biggest fattest people Looks at them like come on this is your moment This is the only time in your life where there is any purpose to your wantonly deep fried life style Yes and you will have the heaviest luggage we all know that You can save this entire jet of passengers from certain death by doing no than simply hanging out in the antas lounge and feasting on free lunch until the next plane comes This is win win for everybody Nobody actually says a word but it is patently clear what they are all thinkingPeople like me get completely ignored which is funny because although I don t make the cut on my own my luggage always weighs than I do so I d do the job But instead I can just sit there knowing this is some weird form of Big Brother where my seat is safe Nobody s voting me off this tripOn fear of trolliesAdelaide is such a sweet town You know that because it has the only airport left in the whole world where you don t have to put a down payment on your trolley The last time I used a trolley was in Los Angeles many years ago I put in my two bucks got a trolley used it for hours and then when finally we were able to check in our luggage I simply left the trolley Walked off only to turn around because honest to God two large grown up men zoomed in on the trolley and were fighting for it I mean fighting At least one of these men was going to die I stood horrified I d just spent several weeks in the US largely trying to get out of the place and nownow For sure I was going to be charged with some sort of affray leading to the death of at least one person Far from escaping the place I d be put in gaol death row if I was lucky and the jury understood it was an innocent mistake on my part not understanding the significance of the situationIt had never been properly documented before until I next went to my therapist Trolleyphobia I expect academic papers have been writtenconferences attended I see there is something of a dispute on goodreads as to whether this is the best of the trilogy Better Worse Slightly different I m not going with the argument that you have to go to conferences to get why this one s so special Like the idea of a conference isn t out there in the etherHow about this instead Hands up if you ve written a book of literary criticism I put my hand up Look around count hands Oh Just the one then So you know You all wouldn t really understand then Not like I would I mean we are reading about the lives of literary critics after allWe have here the very special point of view of someone who hasn t been to a conference but who has written a book of literary analysis Lucky lucky youThe thing is I have to begin by saying I hate analysing literature I can t think of a effective way of spoiling the stuff At school I was the relentless objector to everything non literal But why are sharp pointy things in Tess of the D Urbervilles phallic Why can t they just be sharp pointy things doing sharp pointy sort of thingsHaving said that I did sort of analyse Changing PlacesHere I will merely add that there is padding to this book but that it made me laugh uncontrollably a couple of timesSo I m at the Italian Consulate a few days ago waiting waiting waiting I knew it would be like that after all a micro model of the Italian government at work I ve brought various things with me including this book of which I read maybe fifty pages Suddenly it makes me laugh I mean really laugh out loud LOUD out loud I swear to God the man at the desk looked at me and moved me right to the bottom of the ueue And the two dozen people around me dull braindead looking specimens if ever I ve seen any looked like they fully approved the desk man s decisionSwallow is in Turkey to present a paper at a conference and he s brought blank A4 paper with him to use as toilet paper He s wiping his bottom in a blackout when the lights suddenly come back on He s up to page five of his paper Later on I m in bed with somebody who is asleep and I m readingdon t get excited not the least possibility of sex Persse is on a plane which is going to have trouble landing maybe even crash One of the airhostesses is desperately trying to come up with a prayer to address to the passengers it s an Irish plane and suddenly it comes to her Oh Lord for what we are about to receive make us truly grateful Hilarious I silently shook with laughter for a while and then went back to my own bedwhere I could laugh noisilyHave you ever been on a plane that can t land I have and actually it wasn t all panic the way Lodge tells itI was on my way to Adelaide as usual and preparing to land was announced The plane got very close to the ground when the pilot chickened out and took us up again The weather was lousy and he was nervous As this happened a couple times it was interesting to observe the effect on the passengersI would have expected a diverse reaction Self important businessmen complaining about being late Hysterics here and there Somebody asking why couldn t they have a second lunchWhereas in fact the passengers pulled together as one and were on the pilot s side If he didn t think it was right to land we were with him Not a murmur of dissentIn due course the inevitable happened The plane ran out of fuel It was now or never Might one define clarity as lack of choice However impossible the pilot had thought landing to be suddenly it was simple routine It was a plane in the air that had to come down Yea verily We all cheered I really do have to make random observations as I go along reading this book or I shan t write anything at all No country for old men Coen brothers movieand okay title of book by Cormac McCarthy But here it is in a book written in the mid eighties Does this mean it has some other even earlier origin which I should know and don t that is commonly borrowed Has McCarthy taken it from Lodge Come up with it independently I m dying to know the answer to this uestion Somebody please enlighten me
