I am vermisched (my Yiddish for confused). I have been pondering over my comments about “The Golden House” by Sir Salman Rushdie for days. And I am still pondering them because I would like my words to resonate (seriously). As I opened the Sunday Times (NYT) and aimed for the Book Review – I saw they were reviewing it too. Granted, more folks will read that review than my comments, but I dare not let myself be influenced by a word in the Times. And I am not ready to write about “The Golden House” today. So while Sir Salman – to me at least – is back again. I must ponder a tad more and resist the NYT until I am ready to write. Feel cheated? Me too?
