July 25, Monday afternoon -- Reading John Gardner

Across the street from where I live, my new neighbor who just moved here from North Carolina

Standing in the sun, reading On becoming a Novelist, by John Gardner, with a forward by Raymond Carver. He writes poetry and has just started writing a novel. It's about drug wars and a future where children are vaccinated against becoming drug addicts and the state controls everything.

His favorite author is Robert Jordan, who wrote the Wheel of Time fantasy series.
