I handed my grades in yesterday. Today, I’m trying to figure out where to begin again. I’ve got a pile of books and chaps to read, submissions to weed through, emails to answer, my own Dusie chap to finish, and a day full of sun before me. There is a “yay” welling up within there somewhere~
This morning I watched a PBS talk show with guest, Francis Fukuyama, and decided I will read his new book, AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS: Democracy, Power, and the Neoconservative Legacy sometime this summer. A very articulate Fukuyama is considered something of a turncoat by the neoconservatives as of late, and may seem like a dangerous entity to that camp now. And I am terribly uninformed as usual, so why not?
In other nice news, Kate Greenstreet included me in her fun project on first books. Read my answers here along with responses from writers, Shanna Compton, Andrea Baker, Stacy Szymaszek, Tony Tost, Brian Teare, and Jen Benka.
Happy summer, everyone!
