The Reading Life Review - March, 2017
There are now 3014 posts online
The Reading Life has had 4,534,646 hits
The top countries of origin for March were
USA, The Philippines, Russia, India and Belgium
The Russian hits were from bots, once or twice a month they inundate the blog, why I am not yet clear.
Normally in March I have focused on Irish Short Stories, this year I did not. I still love this reading area and will return to it.
Works I read but did not post upon
"The Lady of the House of Love" by Angela Carter. From The Bloody Chamber
"Glory" by Lesley Nneka Arimah. A 2017 O Henry Prize Story. I will post on her work soon
The Shadow in the Garden A Biographer's Tale by James Atlas.
I read two first rate just published literary biographies, one on Angela Carter and another on Elizabeth Bishop. I will be reading more.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, a reread after fifty years
Coco Chanel by C. W. Gortner-a very well done literary treatment of her life
Buried in Print is conducting a read through of the short stories of Mavis Gallant. I read for this a great story "The Other Paris".
I give my humble thanks to those who have left comments. It means a great deal to me.
