Books by Sherry Kramer’s Bed

Playwright Sherry checks in with this report on her bedside reading matter:  Two Wireds, the only magazine I subscribe to. I’m still working my way through 2666 by Roberto Bolaño and Natasha Wimmer. Then I have a couple sci fi books; they’re candy, for binging when I want something easy and sweet; a Jack Vance collection and one of those huge best-of-the-year anthologies, I think 2004. I usually keep a Pema Chodron within reach. I always have a stack of plays by friends I’m trying to find the time to read. Philip Hoare’s The Whale: In Search of the Giants of the Sea. 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction by Rebecca Goldstein. And Moby Dick — I’ve decided, late in life, to take the plunge.

    Hey, Sherry–

    Mindy’s been staying up late and finishing 2666 too! She wakes me up to tell me she’s too scared to sleep, but can’t stop reading… I get it next. I read Bolano’s Distant Star while waiting and can report: it’s short, it’s death-haunted, it’s about poets.

    See you soon, I hope.
