Fourth of July stack


I forgot to post my holiday mantel books. Here they are--and about to change for the orange of this steamy summer surrounding us. (Sorry...I couldn't resist.)

Great stack. Love Kate Braverman. Have you read her recent memoir? Great stuff. And Sharon Olds is one of my favorite poets.

Do you mean the essay collection: Frantic Transmissions.....? She was on my show, talking about that book. I think there's a podcast you can listen to (http://writersonwriting.blogspot.com).

Love it!

I love The Shipping News; my favorite book, ever, period. I think Orange mixed with red would be good. What do you do for back-to-school? Hmm....

Back-to-school? Black. I love having our son around and I hate it when it's time for him to go back to school.

I've been thinking about this all day, Amy. "Black" also comes from not being at all happy that my son is going into 7th grade at a high school, not a middle school. One minute he's in elementary school. The next, it's high school. Yikes.

Be happy that he's going to associate with older boys so soon and learn to spit and lean against light poles and cuss. It's never too early to learn these manly arts.

I will listen to that podcast. I thought Frantic Transmissions was really interesting.
