Demonology by Rick Moody

chandana, February 29, 2012

It seems such a long time since I hadn't been challenged as a reader. Maybe it's just me (I'm a hopeless word nerd) but I tend to receive a rush of excitement akin to an electrical jolt whenever a writer uses "le mot juste", a word or phrase pregnant with the exact meaning he wants to convey no matter how rare or obscure its usage. Demonology abounds with these little definition-seeking expeditions (thank goodness for my e-reader's embedded dictionary). Not only have I developed a crush on the author's wordsmith skills but I have discovered in Rick Moody a master story teller as well.
