What Writers are Reading

The website Writers Read has been asking authors what books they have been reading lately. I was very pleased to learn that Kathleen Ann Goonan, the award-winning science fiction writer, is reading The Philosophical Breakfast Club. She has this to say about the way I begin the work, with the confrontation between Coleridge and Whewell:

“Rarely does one encounter or recognize such a succinct, defining moment, but it is the work of a good writer to use these moments, as does Snyder, to illuminate a narrative and an age.”

It was a real writer’s compliment, which I greatly appreciate.

Kathleen Ann Goonan’s most recent book is This Shared Dream.
