I’ve been busy reading and writing reviews. September will bring book reviews and author interviews with Brenda Peterson, author of I Want To Be Left Behind: Finding Rapture Here On Earth, and Marian Allen, author of Eel’s Reverence. Though I hadn’t planned it this way, I’m finding that Peterson’s memoir and Allen’s fantasy are oddly complementary. Both explore the relationship between religion and spirituality from vastly different perspectives, and in very different ways (it would be difficult to find two more stylistically diverse books than Peterson’s memoir and Allen’s fantasy). Both books are excellent reads; look for in-depth reviews and interviews later this month.
