when i play alone, it's always my move

a nice little donald barthelme story in this book. i think a great deal about writing these days, but i don't have a novel in me nor the imagination for character and story. i can't go on writing about myself forever. reading donald barthelme reminds me that there's nothing wrong with working short, a reassurance i've been sorely needing. thank you, don b. there's much to be done.
