Getting ready to start watching the new TV series, I reread AMERICAN GODS by listening to this brilliant full cast performance. I learn more and appreciate the writing more every time I come back to this amazing fantasy/mystery/ romance/horror/whathaveyou novel. Click HERE to listen to a sample.
I bought this book back when I was sixty, looking, I think, for guidance in dealing with this aging thing. Now I kinda have to giggle that I thought sixty was old. But there is some fine wisdom and luminescent writing in this collection of short stories.
Go HERE for an interview of M.F.K. Fisher by Bill Moyers.
And, in preparation for another TV series, I pulled out my old copy of THE HANDMAID"S TALE. It's every bit as chilling as it was when I first read it -- and even scarier because of the current political climate that seems bent on erasing the gains made by women.
Deja vu all over again.
