Readers write and tell us what they are reading.
I am reading John Richardson's awe-inspiring biography A Life of Picasso: The Triumphant Years. His views are comprehensive, balanced, and amusing. It's by far the best work on the artist I have seen in English.– Patrick Parsons, Manila, Philippines
While I was on vacation escaping the Canadian snows, I came across Philip Freeman's The Philosopher and the Druids: A Journey Among the Ancient Celts. The book transports us back more than 2,000 years and carries the imagination into matters of thought and feeling many of us rarely delve into. – A.W. Lake, Stratford, Ontario
Soldier's Heart by Elizabeth Samet is funny, sad, thoughtful, and challenging. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys literature and academia but especially to those Americans who have no personal connection to the military.– Judy Lachance, Las Vegas
