« Finished, I think | Main | The status of the experiment »



Just finished Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's by John Elder Robison (the older brother from Augusten Burrough's memoir, Running with Scissors), which I liked a great deal. Am starting Amy and Isabelle (Elizabeth Strout) with some apprehension. Strout is capable of building interesting tension, especially when probing community psychology (as in Abide with Me), but too often her writing seems fusty and overwrought. If this one doesn't work out, may be looking at Wish Her Safe at Home. ... sounds interesting.
