  1. Hi Nana,

    I just perused your extensive list of publications and am impressed. Hope you have a great new year reading and writing. I've been lurking despite not commenting much. I'll be very curious to hear your thoughts on Absalom, Absalom. I find Faulkner exceedingly difficult to read for pleasure, and will be curious to hear if he's any easier for you.

    Best to you in the New Year,
    Brent

  2. Hi EF, you need not wait for my feelings though you would on my thoughts on Faulkner. I have read only 150 pages in over two weeks. I have stalled several times and the story is still warped in my mind. I can't come around to disentangle it.

    I have had one or two publications but no book yet. Hope I'll get there soon. Thanks
