  1. Thanks for sending. I always look forward to this list. Also, I’m looking forward to your Philip Roth class. I just read “The Counterlife” and want to know more about this very complex, brilliant man. DIANE Keenan

    “The book itself is sort of a perfect metaphor for a human being. It’s got a front and a back, it’s got a spine, and it’s bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.” Chris Ware.
