So Byuck won last week against one of the great artistic triumphs of Mormon culture. Next up: the much more difficult battle against saccharine teenage favorite Charly. Not even my pal Poe's on my side here:
. . . the death . . . of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world, and equally is it beyond doubt that the lips best suited for such topic are those of a bereaved lover.So a couple problems with my book. It's not about a beautiful dead woman and it's not written by the lover of a beautiful dead woman. These are serious blows to my chances.
But I shall not give up! Tomorrow I will reveal that, contrary to common belief, Byuck has beautiful dead women! Plural!
