My day yesterday

Jenny: If fiction is going to be meta, it should be meta exactly like The Unwritten.  I HAVE DECREED IT SO.
Universe: Oh yeah?
NY Times: Zachary Mason’s The Lost Books of the Odyssey is metafiction and sometimes wonderful.  Read an excerpt.
Jenny: I am unmoved by this excerpt.
Slate and WSJ: Zachary Mason’s The Lost Books of the Odyssey is meta-licious.  We love it.
Jenny: Whatever.  I will believe it when I see it.
The Lost Books of the Odyssey: WIN WIN WIN.

True story.
