So, things have been… distracting.
For the last year, I’ve been working with an agent on my latest novel (which I still can’t talk about here). I really hope we are close to locking down the book soon. Whatever the case, I can easily promise it will be ready before the next book by George R.R. Martin.
Anyway, all of that jazz has distracted me from this website. And it might distract me for a little while to go (including my work on Uses of This World). So until I can find time to write something new here, I’ll be sharing something from time to time. Bear with me, this will all pay off in the long run, I am sure of it.
I’ve had the pleasure on WKAR to review quite a few classics on their morning show Current State. I love classic literature so these were the moments I savored like a great meal. The kind of meals with a half-dozen courses and they give you a nice mint at the end.
I hope you will check out (and enjoy) these reviews:
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
- The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
- Dracula by Bram Stoker
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
- Collected novels by Kurt Vonnegut
I love that you review the classics. They teach us so much about great writing. Just recently, I picked up TARZAN OF THE APES. The prose is beautiful, and the story compelling. Edgar Rice Burroughs got a lot of flack for the book, met with many critical reviews. And yet, the story lives on, to be revisited and revisited.
I’ve never checked out the original. I’ll have to do that. Thanks for the recommendation!
