What are you reading these days?

Post Comment

We talk a lot about writing on this blog, and inspiration and creativity. But I’m wondering: what are you reading?

I just finished Janet Malcolm’s awesome work on the relationship between authors and their subjects, The Journalist and the Murderer, whose smart analysis of the story behind Fatal Vision is relevant to both fiction and non-fiction writers. Before that, Rebecca Goldstein’s Mind-Body Problem. I’m not sure what I’ll read next.

What about you?

  1. WWII Kick:

    Defeat into Victory by Field Marshal Slim
    Crusade in Europe by Eisenhower
    War Diaries of Field Marshal Alanbrooke (top Brit general during the war).

    I think I need to take a break for something uplifting. Perhaps Heart of Darkness again.

  2. Lately I have been reading the works of Vladimir Lossky, a modern Russian emigre theologian. I am in a late-vocations program and working toward ordination to the Diaconate in the Orthodox Church in America.

  3. Leisure reading: The Private Patient by PD James & Fever in the Bone by Val McDermid. (James – Audiobook and McDermid – paperback.

    Beside this I read a lot of legal history as a part of my studies – right now McCoubrey & White’s Textbook on Jurisprudence and Zweigert’s Introduction to Comparative Law.
