The latest in amusement from automatic computer data manipulation: If you look

up Auerbach's Mimesis at Amazon the section titled "Customers interested in

this title may also be interested in:" includes Find Local Realtors Here and

Find Real Estate Agents. Huh? Probably the system looks at the book's

subtitle, "The Representation of Reality in Western Literature," picks up

"reality" and makes a connection to real property. Wonder why it didn't grab

"re-presentation" and link to sites about make-overs?

I earlier discovered another: Look for "Flowers of Evil" and one of the Related

Searches is "nantucket sleighride."
