A friend of mine sent me this email this morning:
Read any good books lately? I am looking for something to read. I’m all “hobbited out” for the moment.
I’d love to find something in the vein of 1984, but that provides commentary on our current slide towards an authoritarian state.
At least the Supreme Court seems willing to occasionally show some backbone.
I responded by saying that most of my reading energy is going to be spent in trying to get through the literally 12 pounds of books I was sent as preparation for my summer fellowship for teaching the Holocaust in July. Does anyone have any suggestions for Eric that might meet his criteria?
