The Road

I just finished The Road, by Cormac McCarthy. I liked it, but I wouldn't recommend it to you unless you don't mind risking the nightmares you might have after reading it. Yeesh.

I don't know if I can say much about it that isn't said better here in this review at the Village Voice.

Alice Munro

What a fantastic writer Alice Munro is. 

I just finished Open Secrets, which was, well, fantastic.  Now I'm going to have to read all her books.  I love discovering a prolific author and spending the next months or years reading everything by them.
