Emma “I’m usually reading several books at once because this suits my perpetually wandering brain. Right now it’s Lydia Davis’ excellent translation of Flaubert’s Madame Bovary and Her Fearful Symmetry, a ghostly and delightful novel by Audrey Niffenegger. Of course, I’m always reading poetry; I’m about 10 pages into Like Happiness, the latest collection by Miami-based poet Michael Hettich, and it just glows with creatures, family life, fables, and a tender sort of wisdom. Hettich has a way of writing that is both straightforward and deeply thoughtful. It’s inspiring.”

Emma Trelles, author of Tropicalia and winner of the Andres Montoya Poetry Prize.

Her Fearful Symmetry is one of my favorite novels. Enjoy!

I really need to get around to that one. Make fun of me if you want, but I really liked The Time Traveler's Wife!

The book Time Travelers Wife is good....the movie, not so much...
