Here’s the latest series of books I just read:
Anne Tyler: A Slipping Down Life and Searching for Caleb. I got these for the trip to Aspen, since I find Tyler relaxing, but these were among her weaker efforts.
Wallace Stegner: My current favorite writer, still working my way through all his books, for the first time. Remembering Laughter. Another slight novel, drawn right from an American Realist landscape painting.
Julia Blackburn: The Leper’s Companions and The Book of Color. I got these with such high hopes–and hated them both.
