I’m off to the desert for the weekend, with boyfriend and best friend. Usually, I don’t read fiction on vacation, because vacations are about checking out, and I’m never checked out when I’m reading fiction. Checked out from my life, maybe, but not from my brain. On vacation, I want to be checked out from my brain. So I read magazines.
But just in case I feel like thinking this weekend, I’m also bringing:
-> How Fiction Words, James Woods
-> Edinburgh Critical Guides: Contemporary American Fiction, David Brauner
-> The Late American Novel: Writers on the Future of Books, eds. Jeff Martin & C. Max Magee
So I can, you know…think about fiction.
