■ Titus Andronicus
■ The Comedy of Errors
■ Henry IV, Part I
And read these:
■ Culture Warlords: My Journey into the Dark Web of White Supremacy (Talia Levin; 2020. Non-fiction.)
NYT review here.
■ The Big Sleep (Raymond Chandler; 1939. Fiction.)
In So We Read On, Maureen Corrigan makes much of The Great Gatsby’s debt to hard-boiled detective stories, which led me to this classic. Thanks to Corrigan, I plan to read The Maltese Falcon, too, and, for other reasons she explores, to revisit Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms and Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye.
■ The Colony: The Harrowing True Story of the Exiles of Molokai (John Tayman; 2006. Non-fiction.)
This has been on my shelves for fifteen years. NPR interview here.
■ Herakles (Euripides (trans. R. Potter); 416 B.C. Drama.)
Read in anticipation of an upcoming Theater of War event, Hercules in Pennsylvania. In my search for supplementary resources, I stumbled on Reading Greek Tragedy Online.
■ The Old Guard, Book Two: Force Multiplied (Greg Rucka; 2020. Graphic fiction.)
What fun to discover a second volume of this series on Hoopla.
