Yesterday between my therapists appointment at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. I re-read the novel Less Than Zero (which I first read in high school) in its entirety. I am now extremely depressed. While the drugs, promiscuity, prostitution and snuff films the book touches upon are pretty removed from my life the sense of anxiety and alienation at the novels heart isn’t.

I’m trying to balance out my immersion into Bret Easton Ellis by reading Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. When my nephew was visiting a couple weeks ago he talked about being a big fan of the series and it’s important to keep up with the eight-year-old in one’s life.
