Brontez Purnell, Since I Laid My Burden Down

Interesting novel - the protagonist's voice lucidly situates you in his various worlds of rural Alabama, Oakland, gay sex, alcohol and drugs, religion, and family.

Elena Ferrante, Neapolitan Quartet

I started My Brilliant Friend over Christmas and have now finished the last book—The Story of the Lost Child—of Elena Ferrante's quartet. Putting into words how sacred these books are to me and their deep impression on me would never do the experience justice. I loved them. 

Suzanne Valadon (1865-1938)
