    Willa Cather: A Death In The Desert

    Oh, I love this story! What a treat to find a discussion ongoing here. Reading it again after so many years, it still amazes me what a thorough character study she could create in so few pages. And how the most brilliant characterization is that of Adriance, the elephant in the room for both...

    FLDS and the children

    I just wish there were a way to dissolve the whole sect. Too many kids with broken bones that weren't properly set -sends chills down my spine.

    Anton Chekhov

    Glad to see a thread for Chekhov, SFG75. Just finished The Overcoat earlier tonight and it has put me in the mood for some Chekhov stories. But thinking on it now a few minutes later- and whisking in under the editing timeout- I would never think to associate Chekhov with stream of...

    How happy is happy enough?

    It seems as though some expectations of happiness are so removed from a normal mixture of stability, with some sadness and some joys thrown in, that comprise a healthy state of mind. These books promising unending, floaty, rhapsodic harmony and bliss are just worthless. Isn't a large part of...

    What's a schnickelfritz?

    I heard it was a nickname for children. An old German man I used to work with many years ago tagged me with it one morning. I had never heard it. But because I'd shown up for work that morning with a bandaid on my face (covering a blemish), he said I was a putz and a snicklefritz. And the name...

    Saddest/Most Depressing Novel You've Ever Read

    I think of sad and depressing as two different states of mind, sadness being more temporary and thus more easily influenced by reading. Let's see, The Remains of the Day is exquisitely sad, but not depressing. The Road is sad, too, but bracing in its way. A Farewell to Arms is sad. Lots of very...
