My latest read is Alexander’s Bridge by Willa Cather—I couldn’t find a picture I liked, so you get a portrait of Cather instead. I have a love for Cather that I can’t quite describe. She writes so beautifully, pulling me into her world, the lives of her characters. I thought Bartley’s emotional unfaithfulness to his wife was less understandable than Ethan Fromes, though, which made it more difficult to sympathize with him. I was simply annoyed that his wife sat back at home, blissfully unaware.
But I still love Cather’s style. So lovely.
