11/05 – A Month in the Country

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.
