The only consolation I've come across lately has been this wonderful novel, just out, by Carolyn See. She describes the anxiety, anger -- even rage I feel toward this administration and how paranoid life in America is becoming.

If you are a writer, note her skill, her elegant clarity, her humor in spite of everything.
See? I started out feeling funky and ended up feeling quite okay. It's a good book, eh?
