Is coming nearer on the path.

Plain Old Good Writing

The Phantom Professor, who I learned this morning through Orin Kerr has been let go from her adjuncting position due to her blogging activities, tells an absolutely lovely story about an absolutely lovely story one of her students wrote her. There's a lot to this post. What I like most is how, even as she's relating the story and talking about what made it a skillful work, she's following and toying with the very same narrative rules against which she's assessing (and favorably) the former student's work. The whole thing is well worth your time.
