Sunday Salon: What I'm Reading

I'm reading the last story in My Mistress's Sparrow is Dead. This is a book of stories about love, but hold on Harlequin readers....There are no happy endings here.


  1. I've been considering reading this'll have to let us know what your overall reaction is. Thanks for visiting my blog and giving the reassuring comment that I'm not the only one who could live without Stephenie Meyer.

  2. Here's what I wrote about it in my book log:

    Eugenides subtitles his book with the phrase “great love stories”, but he cautions his readers in his introductory remarks that this is not a book of gooey, sappy stories. There are no happy endings here. But, unless you are a person who takes great pleasure in Harlequins, you will find every story a little masterpiece and you will “love” this book. (Remembering, of course, that “love”, even the love of books, is not always a pleasant experience.)


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!
