      I’m reading “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness” by Rossiter; “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder” by Savage; “The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics” by Haidt and “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America” by Coulter. They are helping me understand current events from a whole new perspective.

    Having completed “In the Garden of the Beasts”, I read that the author was greatly helped by referring to Kershaw’s “Hitler Hubrus”, which gives insight not only to Hitler’s life, but the mentality of the German people which allowed the Nazi rise. Also, “Amusing Ourselves to Death”, posits that it’s not 1984 that we have grown into. Rather, it’s Brave New World, with perpetual entertainment and drugs. Relief from these serious works has taken the form of “The Art of Hearing Heartbeats”

    In a Nabokov phase, having just finished Pnin and Lolita moving on to Ada. But a little respite now with one of the Shannara fantasy trilogies.

    I am reading 1491: New Revelations of the Americas B4 Columbus, by Mann. I live on near-ocean land that has been deeded since the 1650s. It’s given me a whole new way to imagine my surroundings.

    I haven’t been ‘myself’ for several or more years, intermittently depressed, and currently only read news and articles/essays on the internet. But in my younger years I really loved “Desert Solitaire” by Edward Abbey. Later, probably in my early 50’s, I definitely felt like “Up in the Old Hotel”, a compilation of Joseph Campbell stories, was the best book I had ever read. I never was a very prolific reader, though. I live in Lawrenceburg, KY, and I do enjoy the Anderson News liberal columnist that Ben Carlson occasionally, bravely publishes….Teri.

    Recently finished Jodi Piccoult’s Small Great Things. Now reading Fredrik Backman’s Us Against Them (Sequel to Beartown) and Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jin Lee (author of Pachinko, another dandy book).

    I recently finished Deer Hunting With Jesus by Joe Bageant. It was written a few years ago but still seems so on-point today. I love it when people can leave their roots, learn new things, but still feel an affinity for home.

    I”m reading the Blind Assassin and Teri Carter’s blog posts. Feeling so grateful to have discovered you. Some friend just posted your piece on 8 years of suffering under Barack Obama and I’m hooked. My mom’s family is from Kentucky. From what I can tell, they seem to be in Mitch McConnell’s camp and to have suffered horribly throughout those 8 years. Thanks for speaking Blue in a land of Red. And for writing with such clarity and heart.
