If you would like to read a strange and gorgeous story about the man who was released in the place of Jesus—read Barabbas. I would love to know what you think about it.
Also, The Good Earth. I'm about a third of the way through and in love. I think I could follow that man and his wife O-Lan around with his crops and coins and his red-dyed eggs (for the birth of his son) for the rest of my life.
I'm going now to read extravagantly into the night.
p.s. Have you read these books? Is the the good earth going to break my heart?
