Spring semester starts on Monday. I can't even tell you how excited I am to start my American Novel class. These are the INCREDIBLE looking books that we get to read. I have never heard of the professor, even after three years of literature classes, so I am guessing he is newish. But I am amazed at his selection as a new professor. These look amazing.
From left to right we have: Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier, Play It As It Lays By Joan Didion, On The Road by Jack Kerouac, Winter In The Blood by James Welch (A UM graduate!). The bottom row, left to right is Norwood by Charles Portis (who also wrote True Grit), Outer Dark by Cormac McCarthy, Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer (who wrote Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close which is one of my favorite books ever ever ever), and lastly we have Guided Tours Of Hell, a collection of novellas by Francine Prose. Not pictured is The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver.
I love literature classes. Nothing is more relaxing to me than sitting in my big, cozy chair, cuddled up with a book and some tea.
On a completely different note, Jeff taught his first CPR class on Thursday and came over afterwards and he was all dressed up in this adorable button-up. He is so cute!!!!!
