What Do Your Professors Read When They Go To The Beach?
The Yale Alumni Magazine includes a charming little feature about what some beloved faculty members are reading this summer. Jonathan Spence is reading Wolf Hall, Harold Bloom is re-reading John Crowley's Little, Big, Charlie Hill is reading The Four Feathers, and Stephen Carter is reading Ragtime, by E.L. Doctorow. Also, somewhat surprisingly, Carlos Eire recommends The Pillars of the Earth, calling it "the best historical novel I've ever read."
