Re: Reading for pleasure! What are you reading now?
I’m doing a lot of re-reading lately, and just finished Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
by Robert M. Pirsig. I am now re-reading a novel by bestselling author Anita Shreve called Sea Glass
. It is a “quiet” novel, basically a love story, that takes place in 1929, encompassing the stock market crash and how it affects a young, struggling couple. The prose is excellent and the characters vividly drawn, with special insights into the deplorable labor conditions of the time, especially as they applied to mill workers in the textile industry. Set before air conditioning was widely available, I remember being particularly struck by the realistic depiction of how difficult it was for people in that era to cope with the heat of summer.amazon.com/Sea-Glass-Novel-Anita-Shreve ... amp;sr=1-1
