Jim Harrison, The Great Leader. A boyfriend in Montana introduced me and I will always be grateful. Reading Harrison is like reading a story written about yourself. That sounds a bit narcissistic, but I just mean that his characters are so totally a part of each of us.
Miranda July, Learning to Love you More. Duh.
Christopher Hitchens, Letters to a Young Contrarian. Hitchens, a smart man, a better writer and someone who trusted himself. I didn't agree with everything he wrote, but I loved to read it and it made me think which is most important.
Sam Lipsyte, The Ask. Just got a notice from the library that this was in. Yes.
And three who I haven't read before...
Tina Fey, BossyPants. Before she turns it into a movie.
Colson Whitehead, Zone One. Blame NPR.
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone. Blame BookClub.
I'm excited for this winter's reading list: chai, fireside, dog, book, done.
