yesterday i read the road through the wall / shirley jackson.
the day before i read the devil by the sea / nina baweden.
both bleak tales about middle class families/neighborhoods &
dead little girls. i'm going to start jackson's bird's nest
in a moment. otherwise, not much doing. the weather has been grand &
i've been cleaning the apartment. i still need to mop the floors,
but i need a bucket for the soapy water. one of windows is broken &
we need to call the landlord. i looked up some reviews/interviews
with jackson on proquest historical newspapers & read one where
she lists Elizabeth Bowen & Katherine Anne Porter as her favorite
contemporary authors; i don't think i've read anything by either -
have you? recommendations??
