Just finished “A Month in the Country” by J.L. Carr. This is a very short book, a novella really, at only 132 pages, but it’s kind of magnificent in its own way.
It’s a beautiful, complex, gentle about life in post WWI England and one man’s healing.
Downloaded Jeffrey Eugenides’ The Marriage Plot and am through page 16. I think it might be kind of funny comparing the theory of lit classes to the lives of the lit major (this is a prediction only). Meanwhile I’m not terribly eager to read this for some reason. I liked Middlesex well enough but not overwhelmed.
Listening to Still Life by Louise Penny, a detective story set near Quebec over the Thanksgiving holidays. This is the first of the Armand Gamache series. I’m reading it for a Holiday Challenge in the audio group.
