Every night before bed, LB reads me a story. We once made it through an entire Philip Roth novel that way, but have since found that essays and articles work much better, as I am likely to be asleep in less than 5 minutes. Lately, we have been making our way through the incredible collection of essays by Michael Chabon, Maps and Legends. My favourite essay so far: "On Daemons and Dust" about Phillip Pullman's Dark Matters Trilogy. We're on one about Cormack McCarthy's The Road right now.
It's the perfect way to end what are usually hectic and chaotic days!
