Heretics of Dune

Oh, and after I got home I spent half an hour reading an unbelievably long Facebook thread that unfolded over the course of the day/evening about the National Book Award in poetry, which Louise Glück won, and about the various merits of all the shortlisted works.  Just kidding, it was about Claudia Rankine’s Citizen, and whether it should have won, and about all the attention it’s gotten and why.  I haven’t read any of the short- or longlisted poetry books.  Actually the only NBA-nominated book I have read so far is Roz Chast’s Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, which was terrific.
