A Welcome Thaw

Global tragedy competed with a local restoration of viable climate this week. I finished The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde by R.L. Stevenson and then Summertime by J.M. Coetzee. Both novels succeed on the virtue of their ingenious construction. Neither wants to admit much initially. I enjoyed that.

I have now plunged into Robinson Crusoe and may complete such this evening. The Secret History by Donna Tartt has been cracked. I am not as sure about that one.

My foray into Proust will hopefully be undertaken on the 30th.
