Some book and article notes in a sec, but first: What’s your favorite spiritual memoir? I’m looking for a good one. I’ve enjoyed Mary Karr, Anne Lamott, Martha Beck, and Kate Braestrup, to give you a sense of what I like. Any other favorites out there?
On the bedside table: I abandoned The Sun Also Rises a few weeks ago upon my second attempt. I had hoped that my enjoyment of The Paris Wife would turn me into a Hemingway fan. Alas, I still find it boring and repetitive. BUT then I was in between books and picked up A Moveable Feast, Hemingway’s non-fictional account of his years in Paris. This one, written much later in life than The Sun Also Rises but set in the same time period, I find quite enjoyable. Lovely writing, engaging and sympathetic characters. And I’m about to embark upon The Goldfinch for my book club.
As for shorter stuff:
I’ve been working on a short essay about money, so these articles particularly caught my eye:
Family#parents “more focused on the braininess of their sons and the waistlines of their daughters”? @seththoughts http://ow.ly/sOzuP
Happy reading, and, again–what’s your favorite spiritual memoir?
