Chapter 16: Hass, et al.

As promised in my last post, you'll find my review of Robert Hass's The Apple Trees at Olema here. The book is a good retrospective collection for any Hass fan, and has some wonderful new stuff, too. While you're at Chapter 16, check out Ed Tarkington's review of Safe from the Neighbors by Steve Yarbrough. Ed says this story set against the backdrop of the 1962 Ole Miss riot is "superb." And if you are in the market for some "white-hot suspense," see Liz Garrigan's review of Ice Cold, the latest thriller from Tess Gerritsen.

Have a good weekend, y'all--and happy reading.

The Poor Poet, Carl Spitzweg, 1837

Fantastic illustration. That floating umbrella is quite the thing!

I love it, too. Misery, bliss, and whimsy in a single image...
