I have about 40 pages left in this. It is beautifully written.
This book has been interesting because my daughter did an Ancient Greek translation last year that was published. She finishes her masters in May and then will start her PhD on a Distinguished Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Arkansas. Sorry to brag but I am so proud. We share a love of books.
I rarely read fiction; I attempted to read this book in the early 2000’s but could not get past the first 30 pages. Giving it one more try.
I just finished Mike Lawson’s latest Joe Demarco thriller, “Alligator Alley.” Nothing profound, just a fun series of quick reads, all featuring a non-practicing attorney from a mob family who works in DC as a “fixer” for Congressman and sometime-Speaker of the House John Mahoney, who bears a striking resemblance to the late Tip O’Neil.

I’ve only read the sample on Amazon, as it is still a week from release, but pretty dang fun so far.
I was going to read another book next, by English novelist Charles Williams (not the American novelist Charles Williams) but. . . the book arrived and it is one of those self-published via amazon books with ridiculously tiny print in order to keep the page count down and the cost to the publisher. So I ordered another, larger printed copy, and started this:
I really enjoy the A.A. Fair novels of the B. Cool and Lamb Detective Agency.
Bet I’d like this one. I’d be up for one regarding the Ohio and East coast black-out initiated by inadequate vegetation management by FirstEnergy.
David Sedaris is a hoot! But clowns? Makes me shudder ….
Makes me shudder, makes David Sedaris shudder, a metaphor for social norms that are off kilter.
