Welcome, L.A. Times readers
My post on Five Parenting Books was picked up on Carolyn Kellogg’s Jacket Copy blog on the Los Angeles Times Web site.
Litblogger Corey Villhauer recommends Marilynne Robinson’s first novel, Housekeeping, as an atypical favorite parenting book. He read it, he writes, when his daughter was very young.
“In the weeks after Sierra was born, I would spend a lot of time rocking her to sleep. Long after she was out, I would continue to rock, back and forth, back and forth, simply holding her and feeling her warmth and weight and being amazed that she was real; a fully conscious part of our lives, not going anywhere any time soon.”
So welcome, anyone coming from there. I rarely write about books anymore, but it’s good to get a little sugar from the MSM blogs.
