Back Pages

Spent a lazy morning reading Jared Diamond (Guns, Germs and Steel) and Flannery O'Connor (Everything That Rises Must Converge), though not necessarily in that order. Found both rewarding, in their very different ways. Diamond gives one a wonderful sense of distance from it all; O'Connor shoves one's face in it. Both useful places to occupy.
