The amazingly interesting and continuously satisfying thing about children is that they are not small adults but a race by themselves. It took the Greeks a long time to recognize the correct proportions between a child's head and his total body length; at first they used the adult ratio in making a child. Primitive people partly recognize this in the elf and gnome myths--just kids. Really they are not small at all but full size. Only the most superficial conception compares them with adults: a whole world in itself.

The best review ever? Of course, it helps that it's about a book I wrote . . . Shit yeah, it's cool. And shouldn't it be. Or something like that. Thanks, Mr. Metres.

Fatherhood so far: a day long lesson in humility that always spills over into night.
