Oh, I read Truth & Beauty -- it was intense, and intensely personal and -- deeply upsetting, in many ways. I wouldn't expect freshman to understand that fully, but as their professor? I would have expected to respond as an adult, even to a book I didn't like. Hello, modeling behavior? Did the guy forget he was a teacher? Quel irritation!!

How are the chickens?

TadMack, Truth & Beauty is an interesting choice for a universal freshman discussion. I'd think it would work better as part of a class where Grealy's Autobiography of a Face was assigned, too. (That's an excellent--and sad--book, also.) But, then again, The Lovely Bones is really popular with 8th graders...

For our town's annual group read, I keep suggesting Danzy Senna's Caucasia, but it ain't happening. This year it's the Wizard of Oz, which actually ought to be fun.

The chicks are great, although they don't seem to like breezes. I love seeing their little faces peeking out of the coop.
