NEW FEATURE: A CASE FOR WORDS

I’ve been getting emails asking me what I’ve read recently (I used to report this pretty often). To be honest, I usually have a couple of books going on at the same time so it’s hard to note any sort of pattern. I read a lot of non-fiction (I tend to stick to award-winning fiction). Currently, I’m one chapter into Wild (by Cheryl Strayed, who was “outed” as the beloved author of the incredible Dear Sugar column) and it’s heart-achingly fantastic chronicle of Cheryl’s physical and emotional journey as a young woman who lost her mother to disease to someone who becomes self-actualized and balanced.

Anyway, all these requests have inspired me to start a new feature: A CASE FOR WORDS – in which I shall show and do a review of whatever literature I read. Obviously, I won’t have time to write extensively about every work I come across, so I will take requests instead (or if I feel especially compelled to spazz about a certain work). Comment on the relevant post (or email me) to let me know which work you’d most like to read about and I shall do a write-up. I also welcome you all of you to discuss the books featured in these regular posts.

THIS WEEK:

The Unbearable Lightness of Being [Milan Kundera]

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway

Thinking Fast and Slow [Daniel Kahneman]

Londoners [Craig Taylor]

Sounds good? Request away!
