Please forgive this abbreviated post… I’m still struggling with lots of pain in my leg and ankle, and on top of that I got a cold over the weekend and the hacking cough hurts my neck and head. So, I’m laying low, watching lots of TV and READING an amazing book:
Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch was definitely worth waiting a decade for. I’m only a short way into this 771-page novel, so this isn’t a review. Here’s a nice one if you’re interested.
I loved Tartt’s earlier books–The Little Friend and The Secret History. I also love that she isn’t in a hurry to produce these treasures. She takes her time, and her prose is amazing. And of course I love that she’s writing about art and the underworld and abandonment and so much great human suffering and emotion.
Inspires me to get back to the writing… when I’m feeling better. Happy hump day:-)
