A New Book of Poetry
It's foggy and rainy here on the coast of Maine this morning. Hurricane Kyle is just supposed to graze us later. A good day to read!
I'm still working on Daddy's Girl by Lisa Scottoline and have about a quarter left. It's a very exciting and fast-paced book.
Yesterday, I had to buy some cards so decided to go to the Nonesuch Bookstore since half of the store is a Hallmark store and the other half is the bookstore. This little book of poems caught my eye. It's about a journalist, Thomas F. Flynn, living in Manhattan who was riding his bike to work on the morning the World Trade Center was attacked and decided to head toward it. These poems are his way of writing an eye-witness account. I've only read the foreword and introduction so far and am looking forward to the poetry.
