Allende, Isabel. The Infinite Plan translated by Margaret Sayers Reden. PQ8098.1.L54 P5713 1993. ISBN 0 06 017016 6. 382 pages.

Gregory Reeves is the son of an itinerant white "preacher" who is raised in Los Angeles' barrio among hispanic immigrants. The story of his life, college, Vietnam, marriage, etc. seems overbroad. Very sweeping, but without much point. Allende has a tendency to write run-on paragraphs; I found myself skimming them many times.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
