Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. — F. Scott Fitsgerald
Happy first day of fall! It was a crisp 84 here in Vegas today and I almost reached for a sweater. Considering it was 104 a week ago, I'll take it. This post was supposed to be up hours ago but life happened and then The Blacklist started up again and well...here we are pushing midnight. So pardon me if I keep this short and sweet.
I was downright giddy when I saw Amor Towles had a new book out. I'm an ardent fan of his first novel: Rules of Civility. Let's just say he had me at this line: "It is a lovely oddity of human nature that a person is more inclined to interrupt two people in conversation than one person alone with a book." Amen, Amor. Here's hoping A Gentleman in Moscow will be every bit as lovely. The folks over at Refinery29 are calling it "the perfect fall book to curl up with while the world goes by outside your window." Sold.
