During the next two weeks, I'll be signing at bookstores in FL. Dates are here:

Wish the author had taken more time to digest this complicated person's life before rushing to get the book into print. This biography doesn't put the pieces together and--in my opinion its biggest failing--never conveys a sense of what a day in the...more

The Season of Risks by Susan Hubbard
"Wow. Is all I can say."
More of Susan's books…
“He said that academia reminded him of a badly run circus. The faculty members were like underfed animals -- weary of their cages, which were never large enough to begin with -- and they responded sluggishly to the whip. The trapeze artists fell with monotonous regularity into poorly strung nets. The clowns looked hungry. The tent leaked. The crowd was inattentive, shouting incoherently at inappropriate moments. And when the show was over, no one cheered.”
Susan Hubbard

“After we became a couple, she composed our time together. She planned days as if they were artistic events. One afternoon we went to Tybee Island for a picnic; we ate blueberries and drank champagne tinted with curacao and listened to Miles Davis, and when I asked the name of her perfume, she said it was L'Heure Bleue.

She talked about 'perfect moments.' One such moment happened that afternoon; she'd been napping; I lay next to her, reading. She said, 'I'll always remember the sounds of the sea and of pages turning, and the smell of L'Heure Bleue. For me they signify love.”
Susan Hubbard, The Society of S

“What's life without risk," my father said. "Nothing but mauvais foi [bad faith]" from The Society of S (p. 137).”
Susan Hubbard
