Clifford Browder added a status update: New nonfiction title coming out soon, will do a Goodreads giveaway: New Yorkers. Currently reading Colette's Chambre d'hôtel (in French). Just finished another of her works, Le pur et l'impur, also in French. A great writer, but difficult; a huge vocabulary. Have mostly been reading -- usually rereading -- classics, admittedly don't keep up with the new stuff. Old fogey, or is it just a liking of the best?
