September 14, Sunday afternoon -- Reading Rudolfo Anaya

On Church Street

Reading Bless Me Ultima, by Rudolfo Anaya. Last summer, while I was touring the US on the Greyhound bus, I visited Albuquerque, where the author lives. The whole town was reading this book as part of The Big Read. It's a coming-of-age story set in New Mexico after World War II.

Favorite book-- Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthy.

I took this photo after parting with my friend who had just bought the last David Foster Wallace book from the shelves at Aardvark Books.
