Barbara Kingsolver's book of essays, Small Wonder, though not enlightening (I had seen most of these essays in their originally published form), was still an enjoyable read. Her political rhetoric is deftly weaved into the fabric of her life. Reading these essays is like sitting across the coffee table from the author, enjoying the conversation as it meanders from the natural world to America's conspicuous consumption to the importance of ecology.
What will I read next? Much depends on whatever Books-A-Hundred has available this afternoon. The time has come for another biography, preferably a political figure. Any suggestions?
