A Well Known Book I Haven't Read


So it's summer, and I'm actually reading things other than student work, but it just reminds me of things I haven't read that I feel like I should. Today's book I have not read is Independence Day by Richard Ford. That's right, haven't read that one. But one of my past professors told a story about how he was jerk, so that probably makes it okay.

I liked THE SPORTSWRITER better, but INDEPENDENCE DAY is worth reading. I met Ford twice at book signings and he was very, very kind and warm. That's all I know, man. I haven't read him for a long time, but if you haven't read ROCK SPRINGS, the story collection, it's worth checking out as well.

By the way, the code word I have to type in to post this is "nutulst," which I initially read as "nutlust."

Dave,

Thanks for the suggestions...that's like two more books I haven't read.

"Nutlust"...well, Ford is supposed to be a manly writer...
