English Muse: Rain, at last

Rain, at last

It's raining in Los Angeles, which makes me very happy.  My plans for the evening are very basic. The highlights:  Make dinner (something from Trader Joes), take a long bubble bath in my clawfoot tub and curl up with a book. I just started Ian McEwan's "On Chesil Beach." I usually wait until books come out in paperback because it's easier to write in the margins and underline beautiful passages. (Plus I always feel bad about marking up hardbacks.)  I thought "Atonement" was brilliant, so I'm interested to see how this new one compares!

I went through a box of kleenex when I read Atonement.

I gave up kleenex and just wept into a galvanized bucket. You'll love this new novel, cooler and with that sense of bravery in the face of sadness that he catches without denying the importance of either one. Boy, can you tell I was an English major. . .oh, well.

A girl after my own heart. I've been desperately hoping for rain here in Seattle and I'm on the verge of trying rain-dancing. Or DIY cloud-seeding. And you also like Ian McEwan. He's brilliant! I discovered him through "Enduring Love." Now all you just need a glass of Port and Chocolate Torte - but I could be projecting.
