Many thanks to Kathy for inviting me to write my first ever guest post and to my husband for encouraging me to follow through. I am grateful for this opportunity and proud to have done it. It feels especially lovely for this piece to have appeared on Thanksgiving. Like Margaret Renkl’s column for the New York Times, Kathy’s Substack brings food for thought every week. I am in awe of the discipline and talent it takes to produce such rich work as this.

I just finished Foster by Claire Keegan it evoked the same feelings as Stoner by John Williams but more acutely.

A writer I'm grateful to for making me cry is Cormac McCarthy. The ending of The Road undid me.

I just finished I Am, I Am, I Am by Maggie O'Farrell and it was brilliant. It didn't quite make me cry, but I got close. I'm looking forward to trying her fiction now.
