-- What made this novel uncomfortably but hysterically funny to me was how likable the protagonist becomes, even as he physically and emotionally devastates everything he touches, and struggles to mis-interpret his experience in novel ways. The novel (and our reading of other novels, our attempts to square our experience with our actions, our attempts to justify our existences) is summed up by the judge, just before sentencing him to 10 years in prison for burning Emily Dickinson's home.+*[http://aries.jmrl.org/search/t?SEARCH=bleak+house'''Bleak House'''] by Charles Dickens (January 2013)
