Tra-La, Tra-La, a New NYTBR Post (from Issue 3 March 2013)

The “By the Book” interview is with Garry Wills.  In keeping with his stature as a heavyweight intellectual, his recommended tomes are mostly tremendously serious books, for example:  Through the Eye of a Needle, by Peter Brown; David Balfour, by Robert Louis Stevenson; and The Acts and Monuments, about the upheavals of Reformation England, by John Foxe.

The Fun Parts, a collection of short stories by Sam Lipsyte, endorsed by Currently Famous Short Story Writer Ben Fountain

Schroder, a novel by Amity Gaige (Self realizes she’s already read a chapter of this novel; it was in One Story)

A couple of novels by chick-lit writer Lucinda Rosenfeld, including the just-published The Pretty One:  A Novel About Sisters.  According to reviewer Emily Cooke, “None of the women have the lives they once envisioned, and they won’t let one another forget it.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
