Now I know the summer is well & truly over: The Gauthier household is besieged by its first illness since Aidan was born. Vincent is the only one not suffering at the moment, but he woke with a sore throat, so I expect he’s getting it, too. Aidan is thoroughly miserable, barely sleeping, making it super-difficult to post. Or do anything at all — I still hope to have a draft up by Sunday, however.
Until I have the time & mental resources to offer more, I leave you with a few items of interest:
- From the Boston Globe, “Welcome to the Library. Say goodbye to the books.” Take special note of what will replace the reference desk. Brave new world, indeed.
- In today’s New York Times, Michiko Kakutani reviews Ted Kennedy’s True Compass (breaking an embargo, I might add — the book’s not officially released yet).
- And for my fellow Plathians, Volume 2 of Plath Profiles is now up, and includes a review of The Plath Cabinet.
