Beyond Fate

Finished August 1 Beyond Fate: 2002 Massey Lectures by Margaret Visser I thoroughly enjoyed this series of five lectures, which explored not only the idea of fate, but went far beyond that, touching on many other ideas including honour and goodness, guilt and shame, revenge and payment, forgiveness and trust. She uses examples from daily life and from history, and shows how the idea of fate has developed and changed over time. This is a series that really made me think about a lot of things…

Comics for a Strange World

Finished May 25 Comics for a Strange World: a book of poorly drawn lines by Reza Farazmand This collection of comics draws on the events of our strange world and makes them even more absurd. He takes a look at the world around him, and pulls out the funny, from technology to human relations. From interactions with animals to ennui. I found myself laughing often at these. He truly has a gift for showing our world in all its craziness. From someone complimenting the grim reaper on his sense of…

The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted by Elizabeth Berg

Finished March 2 The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted and Other Small Acts of Liberation by Elizabeth Berg This was a fun read. Stories that shows small acts of liberation by a variety of female characters. The title story is definitely a fun read, and there's another related one, where the same character doesn't eat anything that she really wants to. There are stories of relationships, aging, loss, friendship, and many other moments that I could definitely relate to. The women here are generally…

Pieces of My Mind by Frank Kermode

Finished December 9 Pieces of My Mind: Essays and Criticism 1958-2002 by Frank Kermode This collection of essays and criticism turned out to be a lot more academic than I expected, causing me to keep a dictionary nearby to look up various words, and to read it slowly over many months. Included here are a number of essays, most around books, authors, and artists. Some of them are from presentations given at conferences and other academic events. There are nineteen long essays on subjects such…

Things We Lost in the Fire

Finished February 18 Things We Lost in the Fire: stories by Mariana Enriquez, translated by Megan McDowell This collection of short stories is well varied and often surprising. Set in Argentina for the most part, these stories include many situations. The first is told by a woman living in a nice house in a bad part of town. She's used to the neighborhood and knows what to do to stay safe, but an encounter with a young homeless boy affects her in ways she didn't expect. Another is a strange…
