What has your experience been? If you knew the electricity pictures most circuitous route from Talking Leaves to Anacone’s, come to me my people and leave your traces here. But if you have loved books and talking about books and even loved some books about books, you needn’t have trudged daily and nightly through knee-high snow under grim skies to love this book about love. Morrison, Walton and Cappello, each in their own section, bring to the reader an atmosphere of intellectual and emotional intensity in language committed to beauty without illusion, after illusion, so that any lover of books written for grown-ups will find enthusiastic welcome. And anyone who has read whole James novels will feel less alone. Others will write here about the many joys and sorrows of this book, and it is a book that will break your heart, but I want to share briefly a quality gas monkey cast of the book that strikes me as urgently important.

It is a quality of the c gastronomie brignais book, not just a topic, and it is a quality for which I am not nostalgic but for which I am in mourning.

The manifestation of this corporatization is to be found in terms like ‘metrics’ and ‘outcomes,’ its consequences (for this adulteration of thought does have outcomes that are in some sense measurable) the vitiation, not of ‘public’ or ‘official’ discourse-always under capitalism a lost cause–but of oppositional industrial electricity prices by state, alterior discourse. The Buffalo way of learning this book bodies forth is the way of the restless intellect that holds itself accountable to its own learning. It is a ranging intellect, suspicious of system, inquisitive about difference, inimical to authority. You didn’t have to be a grad student at Buffalo to have acquired these habits of mind, certainly not, but these three formidable writers document for all of us who have felt ourselves increasingly marginalized in faculty and department meetings by those, not educated, but ‘trained,’ that for a time in the 70’s and 80’s and in Buffalo, there was a department–an institutional construct!–dedicated to such a mind. That’s what I mourn, a precious (to use Silverblatt’s word) a precious congregation of ideas that has been scattered and harried by the anti-intellectualism of today’s intellect. Jim Morrison (and if you haven’t read Morrison, get this book!) dares to quote Irving Massey to the effect that ‘Canons are for people who don’t read.’ I think impact of electricity in the 1920s people should read Buffalo Trace, and then, wherever two are gathered…
