What I’m reading in school this week #8

Unlike last semester, this semester is all nonfiction all the time:
The Bookseller of Kabul, by Asne Seierstad. (Excellent look at an Afgan family, written by a Norwegian journalist.)
Editing Fact and Fiction, A Concise Guide to Book Editing
The Chicago Manual of Style (Not really a sit on your couch and kick back with a book kind of book.)
A selection of profiles from the anthology Life Stories, Profiles from the New Yorker:
-“Mr. Hunter’s Grave,” by Joseph Mitchell
-“Travels in Georgia,” by John McPhee (Awesome!)
-“How Do You Like it Now, Gentlemen?” by Lillian Ross (about Hemingway)
-“The Duke in His Domain,” by Truman Capote (about Marlon Brando)
