Wie man einen verdammt guten Roman schreibt.

Das Buch ist unterhaltsam zu lesen, es ist jedoch schwierig, den Nutzen zu
bewerten. Grundsätzlich würde ich das Buch empfehlen, weil es unterhaltend
ist und schnell fertig gelesen, so dass sich die Zeitverschwendung bei Nicht-
Zufriedenheit in Grenzen hält.
Wenn guy ernsthaft daran interessiert ist, seinen Schreibstil zu verbessern,

Wenn guy vor allem daran interessiert ist, wie guy sich einen Bestseller-Plot
für eine Geschichte ausdenkt, ist guy hiermit vermutlich intestine bedient.

Is there a parallel universe where you are still alive? Perhaps in such a parallel universe, the United States Congress did not vote to abolish habeas corpus and sanction torture.

In July, during a short stopover in New York between conferences, I made a long list of things to do when I returned from a conference I would soon attend in Mexico. ” But on the very day that I returned from that conference, I received an e-mail which announced your death. I was devastated. I called David who told me that the cancer had spread so far that you had decided to stop medical treatment, that you had left the hospital and gone home.

The ‘fluid’ being of breasts is more apparent. They change their shape with body position. Many women’s breasts are much more like a fluid than a solid; in movement, they sway, jiggle, bounce, ripple even when the movement is small” (1990b, p. 195). Young identifies the fetishized breast with a “metaphysics of solids,” of self-identical objects, a patriarchal metaphysics that privileges sight over touch and that prepares the way for the domination of nature, conceived as an object sphere that one can act upon, and, of course, the domination of women.
