(Nov 3, 2000)
The Body Artist media bandwagon has started rolling. First onboard is Speak magazine, with the piece "Smells like Don DeLillo" by John Lardas in Fall 2000 issue #20. Some memorable lines: "I a humble apprentice. I have absorbed an digested Don DeLillo whole. I am the fungus that lurks invisibly between his toes." Though he doesn't come out and say it, I suspect Mr. Lardas has been a visitor here more than once...

Also noted the DeLillo blurb on the latest novel by Joy Williams, The Quick and the Dead. "Joy Williams has produced a hard, sharp, comic novel about the off-kilter genius of adolescence - a work of marverick insight and rash and beautiful bursts of language."
