What I am Reading
I began reading Tim Gautreaux's The Missing (Knopf, 2009) largely for the purpose of picking up some style points for my own novel. I find that I am absoluley engrossed in the story of Sam Simoneaux, a World War I veteran tracking a missing child while working on a riverboat along the Mississippi.
This is a very good book.
In other news, I tangled the lawn tractor in a dog chain last night and haven't quite figured out how to untangle it yet without taking off the blade.
That was contra-indicated.
