Critical Linking for August 14th, 2015

 

Here’s the list as provided by the White House:

“All That Is,” James Salter

“All The Light We Cannot See,” Anthony Doerr

“The Sixth Extinction,” Elizabeth Kolbert

“The Lowland,” Jhumpa Lahiri

“Between the World and Me,” Ta-Nehisi Coates

“Washington: A Life,” Ron Chernow

Whether this is what he will actually read, just a carefully crafted list for release, or something in between, nevertheless it is still a really good list. Another lady or two wouldn’t kill him though.

I haven’t written the ending yet, so I don’t know, but no. That’s certainly not my intent. I’ve said before that the tone of the ending that I’m going for is bittersweet. I mean, it’s no secret that Tolkien has been a huge influence on me, and I love the way he ended Lord of the Rings. It ends with victory, but it’s a bittersweet victory.

So the ending sounds like it will be happier than most of the books themselves?

This is why we can’t have nice things.

There's only one way to respond to "two free audiobooks." It's "sign me up!"
