My favourite image post-Nobel Lit announcement last October: @margaretatwood & Alice Munro, raising glasses.
.@roykesey "Loss" by #Adonis in Leiden in April. It's one of 101 #WallPoems there, incl. the Bard's "Sonnet 30."
@mr_oglesby, I agree about the RV author photo, but am also fond of this one from 1972. @AdamCBegley
The blurb to end all blurbs: GEORGE SAUNDERS, on @lenadunham's essays in #NotThatKindOfGirl. Whoa.
"I don't care what anybody says about me as long as it isn't true." ~#Capote (b. 30 Sept 1924) photo: Irving Penn
@elongreen Another view of that #Bamberg bridge. It was flipping freezing that February morning.
.@elongreen Negative. Unless you count this chap, dangling a leg. #Bamberg
Two things I'd like to know: 1) What is #Roth reading? 2) Why isn't he wearing shoes? (Photo: @nytimes)
@ErikaRobuck A field of pink hyacinths in Lisse, The Netherlands, which made me think of T.S. Eliot in Spring.
Remembering T.S. ELIOT: "For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business." (b. 26 Sept. 1888)
In Toronto Oct 1st? Help @cathygildiner launch her #memoir COMING ASHORE. It's a wild ride, feat. Hendrix cameo.
"Your illusions are part of you like your bones and flesh and memory." ~WILLIAM FAULKNER (b. 25 Sept. 1897)
Remembering MAX PERKINS, editor of genius (b. 20 Sept. 1884): "You have to throw yourself away when you write."
Remembering WILLIAM GOLDING (b. 19 September 1911):
"Imagination is the highest kite one can fly." ~Lauren Bacall (b. 16 September 1924)

CHARADE, @willmckinley. Cary Grant at his most adorable. In those thick black-framed specs.
.@Anna_Hope Ilkley Moor in April. I kept my eyes peeled for that reprobate Heathcliff. As you might imagine.
@Anna_Hope Here's my friend @Ilkleymum's Lucy, on the moor in April. One more photo TK.
Remembering J.R.R. Tolkien, who died on this day in 1973: "Not all who wander are lost."
