Prurient Reading

My prurient reading of the day: 5 Shades of Gray, by Eileen Tabios. Oh my. 5 Shades of Gray whispers–succinctly, and sometimes mysteriously–of that which a novel like “you-know-what” could never approach at length. I am reminded of an earlier book of short stories, of a slightly different (but not unrelated) shade: Behind the Blue Canvas — also by Ms. Tabios, for which I wrote the introduction.

(And by the way, I am now a member of the Blue Canvas artists network).
