Awaiting new developments in narrative theory

Scott McLemee pasted this marvelous observation by Michael Bérubé in the commonplace book section of his abundant literary site (& blog), which I've just begun having fun rummaging around in:
The truth is that most of my life is spent in tasks so utterly mundane and banal that it would require new developments in narrative theory simply to try to relate them.

I've always enjoyed reading Michael's pieces on popular culture, the state of higher education, politics, whatever, in the Voice, Harper's, NYT Mag, PMLA, and it's a treat that he has so many of them posted (& that he has a blog).
