As we head into glorious autumn–my favorite season–there’s no shortage of great fiction to read. Cathy and I have been focusing on a couple of contemporary authors lately.
Cathy just finished these two by Elizabeth Strout, both of which she loved…
…while I just finished Lydia Millet’s “Sweet Lamb of Heaven” (blew me away) and I’m now enjoying the stories in “Fight No More.” She’s just amazing.
Share the titles that you’re enjoying this fall? We always love to hear what our friends are reading.
And if you’re in the Fairfax, Virginia, area Oct. 10 to 13, check out the Fall for the Book Festival at George Mason University. There’s a great lineup of speakers, including Elizabeth Strout, and lots workshops and discussion panels. Keep an eye out for Cathy!

Glad to see E. Strout’s and L. Millet’s and work being recognized on the pages of Write Despite. Hard to say who is the better writer. Both are major literary forces, prodigious talents.
I’m loving Elizabeth Strout’s work now, too! Check out her earlier novel, “Abide With Me.”
