For today’s Sunday Salon post, I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon with Teresa and Ana (and many others) and share some fun links I’ve found throughout the week. To me, the best part of blogging is having a community, however large or small, with whom to share things. Let the sharing begin!
I’ve been a big fan of Richard Russo ever since I read Straight Man back in 1996 or so. He has a new memoir about his mother, Elsewhere, which sounds terrific.
Many, many people are fans of Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project, and many, many people are fans of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild and her “Dear Sugar” column. Read Rubin’s interview with Strayed about happiness.
And just for fun, my bookish activity for the week:
Alice Munro, Dear Life: Stories
Dan Chaon, Stay Awake: Stories
Books added to my wish list:
Dennis Lehane, Live by Night
Edwin O’Connor, The Edge of Sadness (Recommended in the Lehane interview with The New York Times)
Jami Attenberg, The Middlesteins
Have a wonderful Sunday!
