Yep, it’s Friday again! Reblog this post with a line about what you’re reading this week to join FridayReads and be entered to win wonderful books.

Having just finished D.H. Lawrence’s Studies Classics in American Literature, I’m now reading The Late American Novel, that anthology of writers on the present/future of the novel. It’s like time travel, those two books next to each other.

I am reading on Karen Russell’s Swamplandia! and deciding on what to read next…
