Finished reading Marching Spain by V.S. Pritchett. It’s an enjoyable but overly poetic account of a walk through Spain in 1928. The similes and metaphors are laid on a bit too thick for my taste. I much prefer the similar As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning by Laurie Lee. 📚
My first book of the year. I’ve read the first few chapters of Detroit 67: The Year That Changed Soul by Stuart Cosgrove. It’s a really good bit of social history. A turbulent year for Motown Records and Detroit.
Empathize with stupidity and you’re halfway to thinking like an idiot.
