I left the house this morning to visit a thrift store down the street from us and found these used books to add to our library-
"the New Oxford Guide To Writing" by Thomas S. Kane
"The Abyssinian" a novel by Jean-Christophe Rufin (Translated by Willard Wood) (I recently bought used another novel by Jean-Christphe Rufin titled, "Brazil Red" also translated by Willard Wood.)
"Tortured Wonders: Christian Spirituality for People, Not Angels" by Rodney Clapp
"Point Omega" a novel by Don DeLillo
This afternoon in the mail I received a new biography written by Paul Mariani titled, "The Whole Harmonium: The Life of Wallace Stevens". I have two other biographies by Mariani, "Lost Puritan: A Life of Robert Lowell" and "Dream Song: The Life Of John Berryman". Wallace Stevens, Robert Lowell, and John Berryman were all Poets. I have read a lot of the poetry of Wallace Stevens and Robert Lowell.
So this cold dreary rainy day goes by. Not much else to report so I will close to read my books and revel in this quiet rain soaked day.
