I read a lot this last week, aided by two very very very long travel days (for example, on 12/29 we left Jerusalem at 7pm ET and got home at 5pm ET).
The Anti-Romantic Child: A Story of Unexpected Joy – Priscilla Gilman (A gorgeously written story about love between a mother and child. Well, about love, period. with lots of quotes from and references to my favorite poet. I highly recommend!)
The Cat’s Table – Michael Ondaatje (I couldn’t put this down. It’s lyrical and haunting. I’m reminded that Ondaatje is my favorite novelist, and that I adore prose by poets.)
Admission – Jean Hantz Korelitz (Fun read, with lots of details about a place I love, Princeton)
The First Secret of Edwin Hoff – AB Bourne (Written by a friend, thriller set in Cambridge/Boston, entertaining)
The Underside of Joy – Sere Prince Halverson (An ARC of novel released 1/12/12 – stay tuned for my review. This is beautiful!!)
The Help – Kathryn Stockett (I finally read this, which I’ve been resisting for some reason. Very entertaining)
Shadow Tag – Louise Erdrich (I’m still in the middle of this)
What did you read this holiday?
