 " But something about the static truth of numbers hurt my brain. Numbers felt sharp. Words felt elastic and springy. Language had an unpredictable, quicksilver quality, saying one thing but meaning something else, varying from place to place but maintaining (against all evidence) that it was the same language. Thinking about words was ticklish and amusing. It was also easy, as if they fit into slots and patterns prepared for them in my mind. Numbers on the other hand, bounced right out of my mind.

— Susanna Kaysen, Cambridge.

Query

I just started Cambridge by Susanna Kaysen. Has anyone read it? A few pages in and I’m not hooked, already debating moving on to something else. Worth it or no?

What I read in March:
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. What if you grew up with a chimp as your sister? This just won the PEN/Faulkner Fiction Prize.
The Sound of Things Falling by Juan Gabriel Vasquez. I read a book by a man! It was okay.
Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Liked but didn’t love it like Americanah.
Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink. A really spectacular work of non-fiction. The amount of detail and research that went into this account of a hospital during Hurricane Katrina is staggering.

Right after I got Skylar I read The Art of Raising a Puppy by the Monks of New Skete, an extremely well-respected book on the developmental stages of puppies and how to train them. One chapter talks about never letting your dog sit all over you, that they should sit on the floor and be “invited” into your lap on occasion. I think about this every night when Skylar bulldozes over my keyboard, bone in mouth, to commandeer my lap and chew.
