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 Carson’s I hadn’t read before: Men in the Off Hours and Plainwater. They are doing a fine job of filling the long January nights.
