Just started my Dad's latest book "Father Taylor: Boston's Sailor Preacher, as seen and heard by his Contemporaries." Fascinating book that my father worked on researching and compiling for years, and finally has printed via amazon publishing.

In queue at the library.  Let us know what you think.  Thanks.

Finally buckling down and finishing Camus's The Plague.  Probably will wrap up tonight.

Finished A Burning. Excellent IMHO.

Good to know.  Should be able to borrow it soon.

Reading Kundera's Life is Elsewhere.  Also have an e-book version of Kevin Brockmeier's The Brief History of the Dead, which incidentally features a man-made virus that wipes out humanity.  Good times...

Not sure what will be after this.  Maybe Joyce Cary's first trilogy or Don Quixote.

I’m taking an open course on Don Quijote through Yale. I’m waiting for the other required books to be delivered. If you’re interested, here’s the link, https://oyc.yale.edu/spanish-and-portuguese

They have lots of other courses in a variety of disciplines.

Thanks.  I'll check it out.  Way, way back when I took a course that centered on Rabelais and artists of his time.  That was neat, though I don't remember all that much from it.

I actually ordered it last night! Darryl Pinckney had recommended it during the online talk he gave recently about No Name In The Street for the Library of America.
