An undeserved honor

Many thanks to Mark Sarvas of Elegant Variation for including A Commonplace Blog among the “Top 10 Really, Really Smart Literary Blogs.” As Frank Wilson observed, it is a pity that Sarvas momentarily forgot Patrick Kurp’s Anecdotal Evidence, the best of the best. The same day that Sarvas’s ten best appeared at, after all, Kurp quoted from the “funniest literary account of a Seder”—from Isaac Rosenfeld’s only novel, Passage from Home. This was a polite correction of my post on Passover reading below.

At all events, I apologize for not being around to greet any new readers on Thursday or Friday. Please make yourself at home. Help yourself to a Coke or a handful of chips.
