Guy Maddin and I RULE THE UNIVERSE!

So I was joking about Doctor “this is one of the great books of the century” Weep in my last blog post. A friend of mine brought by this review from Utne (Jan/Feb 06) that she'd noticed. Did they really say that between Guy Maddin and I, Canada was "producing some of the most innovative, creative works of our time."??? Does that include Jim Carrey?

I'm thrilled by how much the reviewer "got" the book, though the first line is ridiculously hyperbolic (sorry, Guy.) It's amazing to discover a review from somewhere far away when you didn't expect it. Next time I see Utne, I'm going to buy it a drink.
