Thank God It's Friday So Go Read Some Fiction That's Really Good.
Death of the Superman by Melanie Griffin @ New Dead Families-- I'd like to see this as a graphic novel, illustrated by Frank Miller/Klaus Janson:
"Betty Page disappeared behind a three-quarters-height wall reinforced
with battlements of stacked books. Hers was the only other cubicle lit
up at this point in the work cycle, but even the dormant desks looked
like spillover from half a dozen uniquely stuffed minds. All except
mine—Artie’s—a flat desert of public school wood. I looped my voice
recorder’s strap over my neck and pressed the red button as I went out
to fill the void."
