27. Dare I say

You've been longer in the Bardo than Lincoln?

Wow, now I really must read Speedboat.
"When members of the National Book Critics Circle were polled to see which book they would most like to see republished, they chose Speedboat—“by far.” This story of a young female newspaper reporter coming of age in New York City was originally published serially in the New Yorker; it is made out of seemingly unrelated vignettes—tart observations distilled through relentless intellect—which add up to an analysis of our brittle, urban existence. It remains as fresh as when it was first published.
"

For some reason that reminds me of a review someone wrote here a few months(?) ago though I feel quite certain that was not the title. hmmm
