• Playing with my new Kindle Fire. Loving it!
• Preparing so that I can eventually view my own short stories, poetry, et al
. published as Kindle Singles.
• Rereading Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man
to prepare for leading a class discussion. This remarkable, award-winning novel, now 60 years old, still offers up beautiful prose, brilliant insight into human behavior, and mastery of writing craft.
• Rereading Dostoevsky’s Notes from the Underground
, also in preparation for the Invisible Man
discussion. Ralph Ellison acknowledged the influence of this novella, among others, in writing his own National Book Award novel.
