What’s the best book you’ve read recently?
(Tell me you didn’t see this one coming?)
by Richard Russo
Are you getting tired of me mentioning this book yet? This may be the third time it's been pictured here in the last week! I could have finished it Sunday, but have slowed down to make it last longer. Russo has been a favorite for years, and his new book only reaffirms that status.
A passage from last night's reading:
"Dear God, not Williams," she told Laura. "Do you know the kind of people who send their progeny to Williams? Rich. Privileged. White. Republican. Or, even worse, people who aspire to all that." Not unlike your other grandparents, she meant. "Their kids aren't smart enough to get into an Ivy but have to go somewhere, so God created Williams." (page 182)
