I’ve just begun two very different books: the dense pages of Infinite Jest, by David Foster Wallace, and Uncle Tom’s Cabin, by Harriet Beecher Stowe (1852), so important in rousing anti-slavery sentiment. Just ahead of my students, I’m slowly digesting their assigned text,Artful Sentences: Syntax as Style by Virginia Tufte–enlightening for writers at any stage. I’m in the final snowy scenes of an American detective novel by Margaret Millar in German translation: Da Waren’s Nur Noch Neun–a page-turner for language improvementAnd I’ve recently finished The Loser, by Thomas Bernhard, his mesmerizing extended rant about Glenn Gould.
