I made this post about Never Mind Nirvana by Mark Lindquist, recommending it to my readers. And who was the first one to respond? Mark Lindquist! The author himself! I couldn’t believe one of my favorite authors actually contacted me. In fact, I didn’t believe it at first. So I had to do some research with IP addresses and stuff (I’m sorry about that,
Mr. Lindquist), and now I don’t really have a reason to doubt it was him! If I had known he would be reading this, I’d take the chance to say just how much I love his books, and I how I wish he’d write another novel.
Holden Caulfield says that sometimes, after reading a good book, you wish you could just give the author a call. I know that feeling, and that’s the feeling you get after reading Mark Lindquist’s novels. And, well, the author leaving a comment on your blog is pretty close, isn’t it?
I’ve been happy all day.
