Bedside Reading

Some books I’ve recently enjoyed…

From top to bottom:

Swamplandia! by Karen Russell

A Civil Action by Jonathan Harr

Let the Dead Bury Their Dead by Randall Kenan

Late Wife by Claudia Emerson

The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht

Assumption by Percival Everett

Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward

Binocular Vision by Edith Pearlman*

(and on the Nook: The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey, Flannery: A Life by Brad Gooch, and Running the Rift by Naomi Benaron. )

*I’ll post more about this one soon. But my quick recommendation is that you buy a copy for yourself and one for your favorite short story reader.

    Edith Pearlman’s stories are treasures. I’ve been reading Binocular Vision recently and wondered if you knew her work.

      I’m so glad you like them too, Cynthia–and also, you should know that she’ll be reading at The Regulator on April 19 at 7. The Hinge is co-hosting the reading, and we’re going to have a discussion (online) of one of her stories. Do you have a favorite?
