Save the date, indeed…

“I.O.U” by John Lanchester, in which he looks at the hideous economic disaster we all remain deep in the midst of, sounds like an excellent read, based solely on this quote from the review in the NYT.

His wit pops out at unexpected angles. About the ever-riskier wagers bankers were making, he writes: “This wasn’t just looking for trouble, it was sending trouble a ‘save the date’ card, followed by a formal invitation, followed by nagging e-mails and phone calls just to make absolutely sure.”
