Snack Shacks and Pop-Ups, 7/8/15
According to recent reports, adult attention spans are now just eight seconds long. And, yup, that’s mine, when I crack open a new book. If I’m not enthralled after a few pages, I toss it aside. With a sad stack of half-read tomes on my night stand, I was thrilled to finally lose myself in Alexandra Fuller’s latest memoir,Leaving Before the Rains. Her first book, Don’t Lets Go to the Dogs Tonight, is one of my all-time favorites. This account of the disintegration of her marriage is a sad one, but I am in awe of the way she constructs a sentence. I gobbled it this weekend. Do you have a summer read that made it past the 8-second rule? Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
