JOY: Poet, Seeker, and the Woman who Captivated C.S. Lewis.- A thorough-going biography of the woman who would eventually marry Lewis later in life. Truthful and not the wispy broad-brushed telling of ‘Shadowlands.’
Hillbilly Elegy– from the coal camps of my youth comes a true-life account of modern day living in the holler complete with a ending in the halls of influence.
The Brothers Karamozov – Dostoyevsky. FINISHED!!!!!!
Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good- Steve Garber
Three Steps on the Ladder of Writing– Helen Cixious
The Moviegoer– Walker Percy. Fine-grained New Orleans texture with a meandering plot, modernist overtones and angst of young adulthood.
The Confidential Agent– Graham Greene; loved feeling like I was back in war-time England walking the streets of London in the fog.
Crime and Punishment– The first Dostoevsky novel I ever read! Powerful with a female Christ-figure like so many great novels.
