Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

A Lost Lady - Willa Cather, A.S. Byatt You know what surprised me? That I liked a novel by Willa Cather.
Admittedly, I'd only read O, Pioneers before, but I really enjoyed A Lost Lady. It's similar in many ways to The Great Gatsby, if Gatsby were living in Colorado instead of West Egg. It's a slim volume, but the character of Mrs. Forrester is delightfully complex enough to thoroughly enjoy.
