My mom is masterminding a Challenge for those of us bookishly inclined. We are to deploy this image
of a saguaro forest, and then the books we hope to dispatch this summer. Since I am only home for a month and a half this summer and then must return to Waco and drink up the metaphysical poets every single day, I’m keeping mine rather modest. Here goes:
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (Dave Eggers)
Beyond Good and Evil (Friedrich Nietzsche)
Fear and Trembling (Soren Kierkegaard)
An Anthropologist on Mars (Oliver Sacks)
The Enchantress of Florence (Salman Rushdie)
If I finish these in a timely fashion, then you’ll see more mysteriously appear out of the aether.
