I recently found a good deal for a copy of McGuane's "The Longest Silence" on line, and it arrived today. I'll probably start going through it later on tonight.
I bet you’ll love it.
Indeed, from the git go. I like his style, and share many of his sentiments. I very well could have written the final paragraph of the "Sakonnet" piece, and probably have, somewhere. Lots of atypically used words, and I have to keep Google handy, but I don't mind, actually.

I'm going through the stories slowly, sharing time with a recently purchased copy of Reiger's "Profiles of Saltwater Angling". It's the fifth, I think, Reiger book that i now have. He's another one who's waters run deep.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

The Book of Romans, in The Message version. Paul makes the good news of the Gospel so crystal clear

In search of a sig line that somehow doesn't offend someone who richly deserves it.

I simply happen to be reading through her whole corpus right now. I've always known that, at some point, it was going to be quasi-obligatory for me to seriously engage a Protestant theologian. Theoretically, it could've been any Protestant theologian, I s'pose. But due to a whole nest of considerations, she was the one that made the final cut.

And considering that the Alt-Left's likely ascendency over the next few years, encountering Keller seems doubly apt. Her newest work, Political Theology of the Earth, which is to be released this Fall, couldn't be more timely. Or maybe, as Nietzsche would say, "untimely". :wink:

In that second book, there, in the subtitle, "planetary emergency." That sure sums up the state of this 'ol world.
