I finished reading the Ralph Ellison Invisible Man last night. Such a hardcore book! And so different than I expected it to be. It really, at times, made so much sense to me as an analysis of political movements and how we use other people that I was in awe of Ellison. Plus he has this disarming habit of putting absolutely cutting unacknowledged political truths at the ends of sentances in parathesis, which totally stole my readerly heart a few times and made me gasp.
I also saw Serenity last night, and it was fucking cool. I really, really liked it, to a point that surprised me. I guess my friends who were all obsessed with it were right :-)
Happy Christmas Eve! Or Dec. 24th anyway, if you aren't a fan of Christmas Eve.
