Fred Clark has posted a new post, NRA: Paper jam, at Patheos.com.
This week Fred writes about pp.24-33 of Nicolae: The Rise of Antichrist
And then, suddenly, we catch another glimpse of what is surely meta-Jenkins briefly surfacing from the author’s subconscious:
Chloe spoke up. “Buck, shouldn’t you try to edit it or shape it into some sort of book form first?” “I’ll take a look at it, Chloe, but there’s a certain beauty in simply reproducing it in the form it’s in. This was Bruce off-the-cuff, in the middle of his study, writing to fellow believers, writing to friends and loved ones, writing to himself.”
The very best writing, you see, isn’t “edited” and shouldn’t be “shaped … into some sort of book form.” It’s just reproduced as is.
That’s either a revealing Freudian slip or else it’s Jenkins explicitly mocking his audience. I can’t tell which.
