A WRITER'S WIT
Unused capacities atrophy, cease to be.
Born January 14, 1913?
My Book World
Recently, I received another shipment I've been wanting to read. By next Monday I hope to have completed something I can review. For now I'll merely list.
Friend and guest blogger, Marian Szczepanski, has written what looks like a fascinating novel, Playing St. Barbara. It's next and I can't wait to get to it.
A man who went to the same college I did in Kansas has written, along with his former wife, a memoir entitled Our Family Outing. In their book, Joe Cobb and Leigh Anne Taylor share how they deal with the fact that Joe realizes thirteen years into his marriage that he is gay.
A translation, The Neruda Case, by Roberto Ampuero, gives the famous poet Pablo Neruda a featured role as a character in this novel set in pre-Pinochet Chile. Yum.
My aunt recommended Stoner by John Williams, and it's now on my Kindle . . . awaiting my attention.
And I'm looking forward to reading Annie Proulx's memoir, Bird Cloud, the name she gives to the house she builds in Wyoming.
I'm almost finished with a rather interesting award-winning book, Going Back to Bisbee, by Richard Shelton, given to me by a friend of mine, also an Arizonan. It's a delightful memoir, and I plan to profile it next week.
I don't necessarily write about new books. I'd rather share what I've learned or observed in titles from all periods and a variety of genres.
Happy Reading, all!
