John Banville was awarded the Mann-Booker Prize for his novel, The Sea. It is quite well written and deals with such unique themes as memory, love, and death. Who wouldn’t love it .. other than me. Actually, I recognize the skill and quality of this novel and found it sufficiently engaging to read to the last page of it’s ho-hum narrative (luckily, it was short). Still. right on the front cover The Washington Post references the novel’s “power and strangeness and piercing beauty” … really?
This is a real book. I suspect you can find it in the bookstore under Intelligent Design or perhaps Lizard Pornography (it’s a new Genre).
Lifted from the Humanist Network News this little cartoon from The Bad Chemicals is a sharp pin in the eye of Intelligent Design.
