"Where are we? Answers drift across the woods and salt marshes in John Casey’s beautiful, elegiac new novel. One person after another takes a bearing, sets a course, loses the way, makes a correction."
- Dominique Browning
I just came across this NY Times review by Dominique Browning of John Casey's new book Compass Rose. This is the sequel to Spartina that I mentioned a couple of posts ago. I wish I had the book right now, it would be great reading for a cold, grey day.
I really love the line in the review about bearings and courses, losing the way and then making a correction. Sounds like life to me.
