Lazy Sunday Service

I'm reading Missing in Rangoon by Christopher G Moore at present.  The setting, weather and culture is certainly different to cold, rural Ireland.  The story is peppered with some nice observational touches.  I liked this one as it captures how I think the relationship between my academic work and creative writing:

"As with many reinventions, the original platform remained functional underneath.  The Colonel was still a cop who played the saxophone and not a saxophonist who played at being a cop."

My posts this week:
