LITERATURE: These Just In…

Well it was back to Amazon for some textbooks so I filled out the order with a couple on my wish list–or one of my wish lists; I really have to go through and weed them down because I think someone’s been putting stuff there I have no desire to read ever.  Ever.

Anyway, as I’m totally unbesotted with Miller’s Tropic of Cancer and I’ve had little time to read lately, I think I may just move along and these two newies might be just the thing: BASS 2007 (waited for the softcover, available after Christmas) and Italo Calvino’s If on a winter’s night a traveler. 

Being in hypertext mode lately, Calvino might be a perfect match.  And BASS, as an anthology, will better suit my routine of days away from reading.

I may never be a writer, but they will say she was well-read.  Or at least I hope someone has the forethought to add this into those new styled obituaries they do now that give you all the intimate details of someone’s life.  Sometimes you read them and figure, well gee, I’d love to meet him/her.  Tough; he/she’s dead.  Actually, with no children, one sister a thousand miles away and the other not speaking to me, I’ll have to make sure my husband puts the "she was well-read" into the obit.  Or maybe, I’d better just add that to my list of things to do and write it myself.

    I really loved “If On a Winter’s Night a Traveler” — I’ll be really interested to hear what you think.
