Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s novella has touched the lives of millions. It’s been translated into 300 languages and dialects. It’s sold 140 million copies worldwide (Wikipedia article). This beloved classic has made its own impression on me.
I’ve read Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner several times. I actually listened to the stories on cassette tape to fall asleep when I was a teenager. I don’t recall the narrator, but I remember the stories quite well. I grew up watching The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, which is a show I still cherish in my heart and mind.
Back in elementary school, this was the first book I’d read of Madeleine L’Engle’s. I still carry this book around in my mind, because of the massive impact it had on me.
Hello, dear reader!
Note: the book cover is an alternative one. the original features “the orgasmic man”
This 724-paged novel captivated me, chewed me up with its rawness, spit me back out, and came back swinging with fresh emotions and intense feels. Hanya Yanagihara’s work is akin to an MMA fighter: Once you’re in the cage, her characters punch, kick, and grab you in a merciless headlock and refuse to let go. It’s the saddest, most visceral book I’ve ever read as an adult–and yet there’s bright rays of humor, friendship, love, and hope.
