Auralia’s Colors, by Jeffery Overstreet. It is wonderful so far, and the author is alive and still writing, which is my favorite kind. Send him vitamens here. Or just buy his book and he can buy his own vitamens, live long and keep writing books for me to read.
Culture Makers, by Andy Crouch. Get in on the discussion here.
I have recently been exploring the wide world of podcasts and audio books, and recommend very highly PRI: Selected Shorts, available on itunes, The Writer’s Almanac and The NewYorker Fiction podcast, also on itunes. All of those are free. There are also collections of old Selected Shorts episodes which are really fun to listen to. The art of reading stories has suffered, I think, in our age of multimedia, but these readers do the great old stories justice. My favorites so far are D.H. Lawrence’s The Rocking Horse read by John Shea, “There must be more money; there must be more money,” and Edith Wharton’s Roman Fever read by Maria Tucci. They are on itunes or here.
