accidentally* reading the newest Chuck Palaniuk book, this line got my attention for its absent/present paradox, and also because the character's name was "Inky". seems oddly appropriate to me, though the book is just...well, another Chuck Palaniuk book.
*a nice girl i work with was reading it, and i got into a discussion with her about the author since i'd read most of his other works. she said she didn't really care for this one, and i see why, but when she finished it, she gave it to me and asked me to tell her what i thought. so here i am reading it, though mostly at work.
