Another Grump On the Internet Print

One of the pleasures of reviewing is that sometimes you encounter people who agree with you. The following comes from Matthew Flaming's THE KINGDOM OF OHIO, a work of literary steampunk:


"They tell me that we're living in an information age, but none of it seems to be the information I need or brings me closer to what I want to know.

(p. 29)


And, I promise you, that will be the last Grump on the Internet for a while....
