And the Winner Is . . .

The Man Booker prize has been announced. It's The Gathering by Anne Enright. I feel sure the Spokane Library with acquire it eventually and I will read it in due time.
My enthusiasm for reading Booker prizewinners has waned over the years. So few of them please me. As I heard an English professor say last week, "Modern literature is angst - all angst." Real life provides enough of that - I want my reading to provide entertainment, character development, positive direction, and resolution. Do I ask too much?
