Reading and Watching

I've just finished reading Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. I was sorry to come to the end - it was that good! Set in India, Ethiopia and New York City, it's a tale of twin brothers with a close but complicated relationship and the people in their remarkable lives. I'm starting a new book, Another Country by Mary Pipher.

We watched BBC's The Impressionists this evening (Netflix DVD.) It is a factual drama, rich, lush and beautifully filmed which takes the viewer into the lives of Bazille, Renoir, Manet, Degas, and Cezanne through the recollections of the elderly Monet. See it!
