Summer Reading List
I’ve literally got piles & piles & piles of books in my office.
So maybe my summer reading list is a bit ambitious. But I’m excited and optimistic.
Started my summer off with Man in the Holocene by Max Frisch (Harcourt Brace & Company, 1979) & just beginning Sátántangó by Laszlo Krasznahorkai (New Directions, 2012) which I’m super excited about. And afterwards I’ll have a good excuse to re-watch Béla Tarr’s beautiful film.
