A Swiftly Tilting Planet

7 Sep

Author Madeleine L’Engle dies at 88.

I first read L’Engle when I was nine years old and living in the Philippines. An excerpt from A Wrinkle In Time ran in one issue of The Children’s Digest. It blew my mind; as soon as I could, I got to the library where I found a copy of the book in the For Sale racks. I can’t count the number of times that I read it.

Gravity’s Rainbow Death Pact

11 May

Along with many others, I am reading Thoman Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow:

The Gravity's Rainbow Death Pact

I also found this at the library:

The Gravity's Rainbow Pat Benatar Death Pact

Which will be harder – getting through the entire book, or the entire Pat Benatar album?

The God Delusion will probably just leave me lying awake at night seething, but I’ll give it a shot
