Saturday Good Reads


A letter to a father, slipped under a pillow, becomes another letter altogether. Wanting to meet the uncles you can’t know – in this life. The place where tears go to die. A visit to Avalon, and a visit to Emily Dickinson’s home. A startling look at an old iron works. And a guy wanders into a London park, and sings along with the piano player. Great stuff.
