Ironweed – William Kennedy

Ironweed - William Kennedy

Date Started: May 18, 2011. 3:30 PM. On a bus.

I just noticed that I usually start reading short books on the bus. Anyway, I was impressed with the first chapter. I like the narrative. I like the figures of speech. I like the fact that I am drawn to an almost toothless alcoholic gravedigger. I like the introduction: a description of what an ironweed is.

If this continues to mount up, I might end up trying to finish this book tonight. A sleepless one again then.
