Mary Ann's week 6&7
Finished up 'The Hours' and am glad I added this to my list. Michael Cunningham's writing is elegant and minimal. I was thinking that both his descriptions and characters flow like unrolling a bolt of sheer rainbow-colored silk -- one beautiful fold and color after another. I will definitely re-read this.
I've been unable to locate any Beth Nugent books at the local libraries or bookstores (older and out of print) but will replace her with Amy Hempel.
Dog days here in Minnesota, suited for staying in and reading.
