Parents, parents, everywhere

Aug 01, 2008

Just a little Gen Y (and really, parenting) insight from an unexpected source, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay:

"The Doctors Kavalier maintained exacting professional schedules and, like many busy parents, were inclined at once to neglect and indulge their children."

It's always heartening to come across someone else saying exactly what you're usually trying to say, with far fewer words and so much more beauty -- and in a novel! Yet more proof that I should've been a fiction writer. But nice to know there's no escaping this Gen Y discussion, even in the middle of the night reading before bed, so I just wanted to share. Thanks to that cultural attaché of literature, little sister Lizurd, for slipping this one into my Comic-Con reading queue, and have a great weekend!
