So now Holden has his own website as well. Baby in the Rye Still, I refuse to yeild control of "life in omaha" over to an infant. As an English professor, I must have standards, and while Ciela's first few short stories showed promise, they are, at best, derivitive of the younger James Joyce and the elder Vladimir Nabokov. Worse, perhaps, is that she insists on formalist experimentation for its own sake. And that I just cannot tolerate. When she can produce work that shows originality, daring, and most importantly, a sensitivity to the human condition that takes the artistic process beyond mere mindless, self-indulgent, aesthtic noodlings, then she may be granted posting privileges. Until then, you are stuck with me.
