On se rase la Moustache

I’m in the middle of literally the last task of the semester – 15 page behemoth.

It’s important to say that La Moustache by Emmanuel Carrère is a great book. Really thought-provoking use of narration and temporality. The film version also uses a piece by Philip Glass as the score to very striking effect.

Gotta clear up the fact that I like the work so that the interminable analysis of it doesn’t cut me down. That’s the whole key to grad school, really – realize that you like it even if it’s painful.

Don’t think too much about the masochistic implications of that.
