March winds, lions, lambs, and books!

11 years ago

I finished Michael Ondaatje's novel "The Cat's Table." I enjoy his poetic style and evocation of a young English boy on board a liner, on a 21 day voyage from Ceylon to England. The boy, as an adult, looks back over his youth and realizes the watershed events on board that changed his life forever. I recommend this novel highly, if you liked Ontdaaje's "The English Patient."

What to read next? I'm toying with the idea of Anna Quindlan's "Object Lessons." Did anyone here read this, and what did you think?

I just can't seem to bring myself to get into a Chas. Dickens mode, with spring just around the corner here in the South....
