Okay, okay…

I know…this isn’t high finance, and it isn’t dramatic, and it might get zero comments, but nonetheless, it is Eph related. Sherman Alexie, the author of the last Williams Reads, is a finalist for the 2010 PEN/Faulkner Award. Now, granted, this isn’t even for the same book that Williams Reads chose, but, nonetheless, I do remember there was a lot of discussion about Alexie as an author choice, and so, I thought I’d post this.

For what it’s worth, one of the other nominees, is Barbara Kingsolver for The Lacuna. I happened to just finish reading her book and highly recommend it. As the quip in the quip says, it’s about “art, McCarthyism and post World War II America”, but in my opinion, is equally rich in how it deals with gender issues and love, in all it’s guises. In fact, I’d like to see it considered for the next Williams Reads.

Anyway, a hearty congrats to Sherman Alexie.  And, it would be nice to get some feedback from Williams Read(ers).
