Chickens in the News! Anna Keesey comes home to the Yamhill Valley | OregonLive.com
Here’s a great article by Jeff Baker and a great video by Faith Cathcart of the Oregonian–they’re just so nice! It’s important to point out that the dog and the chickens are largely the purview of the pirate king I live with. Also: the chicken Roz is named for Rosalind Franklin, British biophysicist. We’re not all literature all the time at our house! Where I write: Anna Keesey comes home to the Yamhill Valley | OregonLive.com.

Recent Favorites: BILLY LYNN and others
Since, for once, I’m not working on my own novel (O blessed rare summer!) I’ve managed to do a bit of reading myself. Here’s what I’ve picked up and been absorbed by: Jonathan Franzen’s essay collection FARTHER AWAY; Ben Fountain’s hilarious, inventive and harrowing Iraq War novel, BILLY LYNN’S LONG HALF-TIME WALK; Amor Towles’ glorious novel of late 1930’s New York THE RULES OF CIVILITY, and Marilynne Robinson’s essays WHEN I WAS A CHILD I READ BOOKS. I’m looking forward to John Lanchester’s CAPITAL and Jess Walter’s BEAUTIFUL RUINS. I’m also just finishing a fascinating history of Susan B. Anthony’s northwest suffrage work, called SOWING GOOD SEEDS, by G. Thomas Edwards, and rereading Alice Munro’s stories in RUNAWAY. So delicious.
