running away

If you've been waiting for the English translation Jean-Philippe Toussaint's Fuir, then your wait is over... I think. Amazon.com lists November 10, 2009 as the publication date of Running Away, and various new and used copies are already available from other sellers on JB's website. At amazon.com's $9.20 after discount, that's a mere 20 cents more than the new Sarah Palin biography! I'll let you decide which offers more fiction for your buck:

I taught Toussaint's The Bathroom last week, and it seemed to go well.

I'll let that thought resonate before resuming this entry.
