Cynthia Ozick

Last night at Seattle Arts and Lectures.

I don't appreciate her cute and false attempts to put herself down or, as she says, drop names, but her literary gossip's delicious when not ridiculous (She made Susan Sontag cry. Ho hum) and some of her writing is the finest I've ever read. Try, for instance:

Cynthia Ozick : The Shawl
includes: "Rosa” from The New Yorker, March 21, 1983

Great comments. Did you know that an alarming number of people are diagnosed with Fibromyalgia lately? And fibromyalgia sufferers are really interested in tea for fibermyalgia related information. My site about tea for fibermyalgia has lots of interesting fibromyalgia treatment material. Take a look if you have a chance!

Tried to get it from UW library but it was unavailable. I will try again.
Did you read "This Shining Moment in the Now" by David Budbill in today's Writer's Almanac?
