The Good News for Today

P1110668

Our very dear friend sailed through quadruple bypass surgery. Now bring that man some more morphine(and Demerol and whatever other magic beans science has thought up)! What an incredible blessing, this modern medicine.

And... far less miraculous, but good news no less- on November 3rd Barbara Kingsolver's first novel in 9 years will be released! This from Harper Collins:

In her most accomplished novel, Barbara Kingsolver takes us on an epic journey from the Mexico City of artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo to the America of Pearl Harbor, FDR, and J. Edgar Hoover. The Lacuna is a poignant story of a man pulled between two nations as they invent their modern identities. You can read more about it here.

It sounds like a bit of a departure from her earthy themes of the past.
I have a tendency to get a hold of an author that I like and read everything, with Kingsolver, I was truly sad to reach the end of the list.

This news truly is cause for celebration.
