Just finished reading Margaret Atwood’s Negotiating with the Dead. I need to think about it and re-read before I can comment. Atwood has written some of my favourite books, and others I couldn’t even finish.
Started reading The Crossing by Cormac McCarthy. The lack of speech punctuation is driving me crazy. On principle, maybe, because the prose is like a golden web grabbing me and not letting me go, in as much as I am resisting it and tumbling and stumbling with it in places.
