So it turns out Alexandre Dumas is awesome

How do I now know this, despite having no time to read? Via Hansel Castro's fine blog Hallucina, where he has been (among other things) recounting the plot of one of Dumas' novels. Very different than I would have thought, and highly entertaining. But that's not all - pretty much everything Hans gets up to is at worst entertaining and at best profound (I'd start with this post, about Heath Ledger, joking, and context). He's the friend of a friend, but I'd read him even if he wasn't.

I am wowed!!!
I don't know if that is a word, but thanks for the kindness!!!
