Last year, while staying a house in Berlin, I came across an old, 1950s Chatto & Windus set of Proust in twelve little volumes.  Innocently enough, I picked up Swann’s Way, slipped it into my jacket pocket, and reread it on the trains.  When I finished, I picked up the next little volume.  Soon enough I realized this was it, I had begun in the foothills and was now climbing the mountain.  I have given it most of my reading hours, and with great joy.  Also, inter alia, Kevin Power’s beautiful novel of the Iraq War, The Yellow Flowers; Edward P. Jones’ The Known World; and Julian Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending.  On the non-fiction side, I’m reading mostly about Reconstruction: David Blight’s Race and Reunion, and Philip Dray’s At The Hands of Persons Unknown.
