A quick look into my book-reading brain. Well, reading in general. I read other stuff too.
Flannery O’Connor has taken over my literary standards of what makes short fiction amazing. I love her. So much. Only two stories into Everything That Rises Must Converge and I cannot possibly stop now.
Sandra Cisneros. On a quest to find more of her stuff to read. The House on Mango Street kept me spellbound and she might beat out Frank McCourt in talking about childhood poverty, which is a feat.
1984. Moving slowly.
The Samurai’s Garden. Still a thing for class, even if I wouldn’t like it to be. Essay or “exploration” on it coming up. Possible reflection posted here afterwards.
Mark Bittman. I have the intense urge as I’m writing this to read his stuff. I love Mark Bittman.
That’s all for now. Of course, everything and nothing here and there, and drafts and drafts of pieces for class. Read on, and enjoy!
