One of my favourite writers is Anne Carson, particularly for Autobiography of Red, which is among my top ten favourite books. Even though I can’t always understand her, I find reading her instructive and inspiring. Before Christmas I was browsing in Hamilton’s wonderful used bookstore Westside Stories and found two Carsons I hadn’t read before: Men in the Off Hours and Plainwater. They are doing a fine job of filling the long January nights.
