Hello Ö out there in Book land.

Iíve just acquired Reading Like A Writer, by Francine Prose.  A writer named Prose?  I kid you not.  Actually, I once knew a chef named Kitchen, and a butcher named Lamb.  Whatís in a name?

The sub-title of this book is: A guide for people who love books, and for those who want to write them.  And what a good book it is.  Come to a fresh understanding of close reading, words, sentences, paragraphs, narration.  You may be very surprised by suddenly knowing what you only thought you knew before.

Highly recommended.

Regards,

Pilgrim.
