Looks like I’m gaining on this reading list after all. I haven’t found much to do otherwise, so I bet I’ll continue and at least get through a few more.
The Rainmaker is a wonderfully-told tale of a young law student, written in the first person and in present tense throughout. Quite an amazing feat, I might add. It’s a 600-page paperback; I doubt I could write its equivalent.
