Why Finish Books? by Tim Parks

"In this regard it’s worth noting that stories were not always obliged to have an end, or to keep the same ending. In The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony Roberto Calasso shows that one of the defining characteristics of a living mythology was that its many stories, always so excitingly tangled together, always had at least two endings, often “opposites”—the hero dies, he doesn’t die, the lovers marry, they don’t marry. It was only when myth became history, as it were, that we began to feel there should be just one “proper” version, and set about forgetting the alternatives. With novels, the endings I’m least disappointed with are those that encourage the reader to believe that the story might very easily have taken a completely different turn."

"And I remember that Alan Ayckbourn has written plays with different endings, in which the cast decides, act by act, which version they will follow."

"The Italians have a nice word here. They call plot trama, a word whose primary meaning is weft, woof or weave. It is the pattern of the weave that we most savor in a plot—Hamlet’s dilemma, perhaps, or the awesome unsustainability of Dorothea’s marriage to Casaubon—but not its solution. Indeed, the best we can hope from the end of a good plot is that it not ruin what came before."

Karl Lagerfeld posed for a French Elle editorial, the theme for which seems to have been "Karl Lagerfeld is just like us!" He's shown doing things like reading the sports section, driving a car in city traffic, and going to the supermarket. (Oh, goodie! Another bloody supermarket editorial.) Lagerfeld claimed this was his first time in a supermarket. "It's crazy," he said. "Fascinating what one can buy. There's enough here to easily gain 20 kilos." [WWD]

Ahahaha. IN THE WILD!!, ladies and any gentlemen present.

"Oh please. It's 2012. Can we ditch the ridiculous notion that modeling as a profession is somehow contrary to the principles of feminism? "--sometimes not... entirely sure I believe this?
