Stolen Figs – Mark Rotella
Hoodwinked – David Hernandez (I’ve actually read this but I need to read it again and again.
Ordinary Love & Good Will – Jane Smiley (I love her)
The Courts of Love – Ellen Gilchrist (I love her)
Half Broke Horses – Jeannette Walls (I loved The Glass Castle. I must read this soon)
Juliet, Naked – Nick Hornby (I love him)
National Anthem – Kevin Prufer (I love him too)
The Language of Baklava – Diana Abu-Jaber (Crescent is one of my favorite books in the world)
Unaccustomed Earth – Jhumpa Lahiri (Interpreter of Maladies was so fabulous I bought two copies because I knew I would want to give one as a gift)
The View From Castle Rock – Alice Munro (All the Alice’s – Munro, McDermott, Hoffman are so great. I probably won’t get to this until it’s already out in paperback)
The Museum Guard – Howard Norman (I love him. He is a wonderful writer and was at a workshop one year when I was there. He is very kind).
Oh I am so depressed. I hope you have more time to read, and write, than I do.
