In the interest of keeping track of the books we’ve read this year, the ways we’ve passed our time, and what images have crept into our head and reside there without notice, the monthly listing:
I. The Name of the Rose, Umberto Eco
II. Can Poetry Matter?: Essays on Poetry and American Culture, Dana Gioia
III. To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf
IV. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage, Alice Munro
V. Walking to Martha’s Vineyard, Franz Wright
VI. A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man, James Joyce
On my way, I hope, to reaching fifty for the year.
Nathanael (you’ll have to correct this later)

II. A Biographer’s Tale, A.S. Byatt
