So what did I read on that waterlogged day at the beach? My own deathly prose...but no, that's revision, not reading--a necessary distinction, actually, or maybe a fraudulent one. I'm not sure.
Here are some I've read over the past month or so, though, all good:
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
Digging to America, by Anne Tyler
The Ha-Ha, by Dave King
Author, Author by David Lodge
And yes, I did read Marley&Me. My dog's really not so ill-behaved, after all.
