I'm reading Netherland by Joseph O'Neill. My initial reservations about the book centered on the unlikelihood a financial professional and his corporate lawyering spouse would take up residence in The Chelsea Hotel, even in the chaotic aftermath of September 11th. Putting that plot contrivance aside, so far it's been enjoyable. I'm still processing The Bishop's Daughter: A Memoir and hope to crystalize and articulate some of my feelings about it soon.
Kids Lit this week includes Junie B.Jones and her bad syntax havin' self. And The Viper, which wins bonus points because my daughter can read it in entirety to my son!
