Oh shit, I’ve used three of them!
I plead no contest to eschew.
As for the other two:
Murakami’s narrators do tend to muse, and in the Remainder review, I used muse w/r/t Proust’s narrator, who, we all can agree, is a master muser. (Whether I should be strung up for bringing Proust into the review is another question entirely.)
The Sierra Madre book was genuinely compelling. I invite anyone to disagree.
I’m relieved that I managed to avoid, despite my relative naivete in these matters, poignant, lyrical, intriguing, and craft (vt).
