  1. Thus far…

    James McBride, The Good Lord Bird
    David Herbert Donald, Lincoln
    Maxine Hong Kingston, The Woman Warrior
    Tony Hillerman, The Wailing Wind
    David Foster Wallace, A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again

    I’ve also read substantial selections from the following books, all for my travel writing class…

    Peter Fleming, Brazilian Adventure (Probably my favorite thing I’ve read all summer. I only read 100 or so pages, but I’ll be returning to it soon for sure)
    Freya Stark, The Southern Gates of Arabia
    Ella Maillart, The Cruel Way
    Robert Byron, The Road to Oxiana
