in conversation with Cathleen Schine

A note from Elizabeth:

Elaine, thank you so much for such a lovely evening with Cathy Schine — and thank you to all the readers who watched it; it makes me very happy to think you were all there. Each and every one of you, I give my thanks to.


I would recommend (I am reading it right now) Red Comet by Heather Clark. It’s a new biography about Sylvia Plath, and it is so well written, it falls so easily onto the ears, that it is a joy to read. And it is nice and long, so that is good as well. I also recommend anything by Alice Munro—her stories especially, but anything she has written. And also The Collected Stories by William Trevor—if you are not already familiar with his work, you should try it. It’s quiet and lovely, and very strong.


My very best to all of you!
—Elizabeth
