Literature Writing

The presence of light will always be interrupted by the absence of darkness. Hope will always be punctuated by moments of disappointment. So the writer who tries to pull together these moments of absence with other moments of presence, will find in the writing, in the structuring of the memoir this principle: while we cannot control what will happen to us, we can control what we think we were owed by the world and others.

Good Read

Harriet Klausner reads 20 books a week. Howard Berg can read a 240-page book in 20 mintues. For Condi Rice War and Peace was beautiful — in Russian.
