Re: Part 2...

Oh, I overall quite agree with you, especially about Eggers, who pisses me off more than anyone since John Barth.
But still, there's Alice Munro and A.L. Kennedy (you really must read 'Original Bliss' if I haven't forced it on you already) to keep me sane.
But this is why I want to write my thesis on Wendell Berry and George Mackay Brown, small, quiet little writers.
Also, not modern, but have you read much MFK Fisher? 50's food writer, best prose stylist we've ever had. "I was really very hungry" (in 'As They Were') is probably the best essay I've ever read (it's about eating a truite au bleu in Burgundy).
