As I work on my last chapter’s author review (to be mailed off tonight!) I start to dream of fiction. What shall I read when this nightmare of professional diligence is over?
I think of those book I can read again and again.. Ender’s Game, The Princess Bride, The Big Sleep (yes, I like the book also), Persuasion and those authors.. Road Dahl, James Thurber, Ray Bradbury, Ogden Nash that are so familiar and unremittingly pleasant that reading them is like falling asleep on your grandmother’s couch: perfectly safe, familiar and wonderful in a tiny way.
So what haven’t I found yet? What are the books and authors you could read a hundred times?
