Flaubert, a Great Waster of Time

Ed nearly posits the question of the day, which would be, if Ed had asked it, "Were the Goncourts the first litbloggers?" But, in fact, Ed did not ask this question (exactly); I did. So, I wouldn't go around misquoting Ed. Despite the well known fact that Ed didn't utter this query, he leads us to a very interesting place in France, to Pages from the Goncourt Journals, recently republished by NYRB.

acronym decoder:
NYRB = The New York Review of Books
