I do believe I have become a groupie–for a book. I seem to have a bit of a book crush on Daniel Deronda. I first bought a Barnes & Noble edition of the book because, well, it was cheap and I wanted to read it. Then I bought the Oxford University Press edition for a class I ended up dropping (because I thought I was going back to my ph.d. program and I like to make my life as messy as possible). The Oxford edition is the one I read over the holidays last winter. But because I was reading for “fun” I didn’t pay too much attention to the notes in the back…which don’t seem as helpful as they could be as I pick up the book for a second time around. What’s a girl to do? Why, order yet another edition of course! No guarantee that it will be any more helpful, but hell, I can use all the help I can get.
Daniel arrives today (yes, I’m on a first name basis). I think I need to join a support group.
