Use It In A Sentence

I read a lot of reviews. Have to. Part of the job. Plus I am a bit of a book fan. And here’s a slice from a Publishers Weekly review of The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana by Umberto Eco: “It’s an absorbing exploration of how that most fundamental master-narrative, our memory, is pieced together from a bricolage of pop culture.”

So the word of the day is bricolage. Maybe tuck in your napsack and share it later over a cup of joe. I had to look it up, I admit, but I really like it. Nice work tucking it in there, I say.

Why was I reading a review of Eco’s book anyway? Because I noticed it is on sale — in hardcover — at the neighborhood bookstore for just $4.99. Wow.
