I finished The Long-Winded Lady, notes from The New Yorker by Maeve Brennan. It’s a collection of pieces printed in The New Yorker magazine in the”Talk of the Town” column, and I enjoyed it a lot. Review coming Friday.
I’m still reading through the graphic novels that got ruined, and it’s taking longer than I thought. I finished the last two StormWatch collections, A Finer World and Final Orbit (covers in last week’s post).
Also read were a Nightwing graphic novel, On the Razor’s Edge, two Superman collections, The Death of Superman and World Without A Superman and two collections of a comic by artist/writer Tony Daniels, The Tenth – Abuse of Humanity and The Tenth – The Black Embrace. When I bought these in 1997-1998, I particularly liked Daniels’ art style, with it’s elongated figures and drenched colors.
Barbara, meanwhile read Henning Mankill’s The Fifth Woman until it was due back at the library, then waited a week or so until it came around again. She’s nearly finished with it now, and as always with Mankill, she’s really enjoying it.
She’s also still doing a lot of of quilt work, so reading time has been a little limited, plus both of us have been watching the Olympics, which takes many evening hours.
How about you?
What are you reading?
