Just read this for the first time last month. Wish I’d waited until the summer heat set in, but loved it all the same. (Also, I’m a composer, and for the first time ever, was not turned off by an author writing about music and music making.)
i read this a summer or two ago. i was stunned by its absolute beauty– truly great american fiction. it is ideal for the summer to-do list, for anyone. i’m adding to my plans for the season. thanks for the reminder.
Carson McCullers maybe a household name in the US, it isn’t in the UK. But the quote you chose was so compelling that I was sure I wanted to read the book. Thank you for a wonderful recommendation and please continue sharing not just what you cook and eat, but what you read as well.
