« Standing Up To The Madness | Main | The Last Book by Gabriel García Márquez »

April 01, 2009


Ooh, can't wait to hear what made the final cut! I would just add to Question #1, for the uninitiated, the reason for it is that it's extremely easy to leave a book behind. Leaving one of your own books behind is disappointing, but not as bad as being indebted to someone else! Excellent post, my dear. This is always my dilemma! I like that we have a section on travel writing at the bookstore, divided by location, so you can read something about or taking place in where you're going :)

Hey Anna! It's Sarah S. from WAMmy circles. Sorry I didn't get to see you this weekend, but I just wanted to say have a blast in Scotland. My brother lived there twice so I've done the scottish trip my family, twice. It's a great locale for clannish traveling. Maybe try one of Alexander McCall Smith's "Sunday Philosophy Club" or "44 Scotland street" novels--great plane reads and they take place in Edinburgh.

Hi Sarah S.! Thanks for the reading suggestion--you know, I haven't read any of this guy's books, but when I heard Jill Scott was starring in a movie version of one them, I definitely perked up ....

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
