Because I only read what the good folks at Powell's strongly SUGGEST that I read (and I am behind, so...) Just finished History of Love, Nicole Krauss - lovely and bittersweet Starting Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Marisha Pessl (have not read enough to know yet) Now...Delirium by Laura Restrepo OR Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk? I need a consensus please. My therapist thinks I need to trust my instincts and make more decisions by myself but I don't really think so. Do you? I mean, if YOU think it's good, it's good, right?

Ms Delors, I should've known you read Schama (among many others, I'm sure), as Mistress of the Revolution was packed with historic details and insights. Your meticulous study really brought the time period to life. Thanks so much for such a thoroughly enjoyable book!

Schama is great, though he gets the first name of my protagonist (Coffinhal) wrong. I also think I remember that he gives Coffinhal the title of general, which he never had. I believe he mixes hims up with Hanriot.

Either Snow by Orhan Pamuk or The Complete Peanuts 1967 - 1968 -- whichever my brain can stand before beddie-bie.

The Life You Save May Be Your Own: An American Pilgrimage by Paul Elie A truly engaging and well-written account of the four the major American writers who also happen to be Catholic: Thomas Merton, Walker Percy, Flanner O'Connor, and Dorothy Day and dialogue with their works.
