  • I’ve found a new MRE author: Lisa Moore. I’ve been reading _February_ (on the list for the Booker this year, her third book, my first of hers). I’m smitten. I ran out of synonyms for “wow” to put in the margins as I read. What she does with time is just breath-taking.

  • I seriously need to put up an MRE authors page on my blog. Have you heard about Toni Morrison’s most recent, Home?
