Cion by Zakes Mda, 2007 paperback, Picador Press, NY

After a few nights of intending to start this book, it wasn’t until today that I split the cover.  The very first sentence sent me to dictionary.com.  The sciolist has delusions of Godness.  Sciolism (sahy-uh-liz-uh m) noun, superficial knowledge. Sciolist is one that possesses such a thing.  Digging the concept and the play with Godness as a condition, perhaps disorder.  I’m going to keep reading.  Check you later!
