more bookish inspiration (gilead)
It's a risky thing to recommend a book to someone you don't know very well, especially with assurances that they will "love it." But a Facebook friend did just that when she sent me a copy of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Gilead by Marilynne Robinson.
I had never heard of the book-- or the author. But my friend was right. The book was full of delicious passages, each holding the kernel of an etegami. Here are two of the results. Gilead has many more passages waiting to be illustrated, but I'm already on my third new book since finishing it, and I must move on because life is short.
