Bel Canto

I am not normally inclined to send something out to the list and to be
honest I have not been following most conversations, but tonight I had
to do something. It is just after 2 in the morning as I sit here at my
desk with my lamp turned on over my right shoulder and I am struck by a
book I just finished. The book is Bel Canto by Ann Patchett and on the
cover it says it is a winner of the Pen/Faulkner Award. I cannot
remember reading a book and tears coming to my eyes from doing so. I am
up right now because I could not put the book down and because the
author captures so much of the human spirit and the goodness inside of
us. I can't even say what this book has meant to me to read. This
email might be a mistake, but what am I to do? I feel like a child who
finds out some good fortune that has come to them and must run to their
parent's side to tell them all about it. I simply cannot keep quiet and
here I am typing an email to strangers. I cannot be quiet yet I do not
know what to say. I suppose it is redundant to say that I recommend
this book, but I will say it nonetheless.
My girlfriend is alseep in the other room. I think I will go join her
now and enjoy just lying next to her.
