A calming evening
Very satisfactory evening. A good play called Rodney's Wife at Playwrights Horizons; a good dinner at Chez Josephine; and then I came home and instead of doing what I should have, which is try and go to sleep right away, I read straight through the lovely, lovely novel that is Kate Atkinson's Case Histories. Oh, if only all detective fiction was as good as this book! It shows you why the genre classification is fairly pointless--this is an excellent book--wholly engaging and likeable and sad and touching. Now I only have 6 hours to sleep in but it was well worth it.
