New today: Amy Frykholm reviews Toni Morrison, Phyllis Tickle’s reading for a dark night of the soul, blogging the lectionary
New today from the Century
The Proust of Norway, by Will Willimon. Karl Ove Knausgaard forced me to cancel six months of my life in order to fixate on 30 years of his.
Amy Frykholm reviews Toni Morrison's book God Help the Child. In her 11th novel Toni Morrison returns to the foundation of most of her fiction: childhood and its traumatic effects.
Living with selfhood, by Phyllis Tickle. When I was 13, my pastor slipped me Glenn Clark's The Soul's Sincere Desire. Within three pages, I knew I had a soul.
