At the Coudal Partners site, they’ve posted their first set of 2006 Field-Tested Books, wherein writers write about the experience of reading a particular book in a particular setting. Terry and I both contributed entries this year, and mine is now up and available to read (Terry’s will be posted in another batch later this week). My place is North Whitefield, Maine. My book is…well, you’ll just have to hop over and see, won’t you?
You’ll surely find it worth the trip. Also among today’s contributors are Kevin Guilfoile, Daniel Radosh, Claire Zulkey, and a man I know better as “Lunchboy,” Francis Heaney. More entries will be added throughout the week from worthies including Maud Newton, George Saunders, and Jessa Crispin, to name a few.
