Eager Reading

I can't WAIT to get my hands on the newest books from two of my favorite authors:

LARK AND TERMITE by Jayne Anne Phillips. Her novel, MACHINE DREAMS, is a treasure; a book I reread for its lyrical beauty. Reading Phillips' fiction always reminds me of the power and sheer pleasure of language. Here's the glowing review of Lark and Termite from Michiko Kakutani in today's NYT...and here's an excerpt.


THE RED CONVERTIBLE by Louise Erdrich, selected and new stories from a prolific writer whose work seems to get better and better.
