MAZY MOUSE

Reading more than one book at a time is like being a mouse in a maze: you never quite know where you are going.

At the moment, I am bouncing back and forth between A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett and Nora Webster by Colm Tóibín.

Terry Pratchett’s collection of nonfiction essays demonstrates his remarkable ability to write with humor and with humanity on topics as diverse as science fiction conventions and wearing hats.

In his ninth and latest novel, Nora Webster, Colum Tóibín dramatizes the life of a middle-aged widow coping with her family and friends in a small town in Ireland in the late 1960s.

Halfway through both, I am contemplating adding a third book from the maze that is my library.
