Sarah and I have been joking about our “book club of two” since it’s been pretty quiet around here. I know there are at least a few of you lurking in the shadows, and we appreciate you reading along. This week got away from us with pesky things like MFA deadlines, freelance projects, and a little writing conference called AWP (which is where I am right now). If you’ve never been to a conference with 10,000 other writers, well, let’s just say it’s a spiritual experience of its own kind.
All of this to say that we’re sorry we haven’t tackled any of the pieces from the second grouping from BSW, but we will be back with something next week. I especially loved two essays this week: Pico Iyer’s “A Chapel Is Where You Can Hear Something Beating Below Your Heart” and “Wonderlust” by Tony Hiss. If you happen to have read either of those, let us know what you think.
