Reading Update

January

Haim Gouri's Words in My Lovesick Blood

Interpretation of Murder, Jed Rubenfeld - funny spoof on psychoanalysis

The House on Mango Street, Sandra Cisneros - coming of age

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, Stephen King - super macho but good

Along the Bloodline, Adelle Foley - haikus

Last Wife: Poems, Claudia Emerson - narrative

Bodies and Souls: The Tragic Plight of Three Jewish Women Forced into Prostitution in the Americas, Isabel Vincent - well-written history by a Canadian reporter.

The Book of Blessings: New Jewish Prayers for Daily Life, The Sabbath and the New Moon, Marcia Falk - she turns some of her poems and those of Yiddish women writers into prayers. Helpful to me as I continue managing Abe's care.

February - lots of poems, plus work by Rabbi Naomi Levy regarding Abe's care. She'll be at Beth Shalom last weekend in April but I'll be in NY at the Pen America conference

American Imago: Psychoanalysis and the human Sciences

Freud's Requiem: Mourning, Memory, and the Invisible History of a Summer's Walk, Matthew von Unwerth - Freud takes a walk in the country with Rainer Maria Rilke, and Lou Andreas-Salomé - stunning

March

Survival in Aushwitz, Primo Levi - A powerful life force. Even helps me understand Alzheimer's better.

Collected Poems, Primo Levi
