◊ Member’s Nightstand with Linda Feeney: Currently, my night stand holds “Late Essays 2006-2011”  by J.M. Coetzee, insightful critical analyses of authors ranging from Goethe to Hawthorne to Philip Roth.  Also, Bob Dylan’s “Chronicles Volume One”, and The  “Overstory ” by Richard Powers, a somewhat post-apocalyptic story about trees.   The rest of the space is occupied by back issues of The New Yorker and The Atlantic and a paperback of Graham Greene’s “The Power and the Glory”, which I fear has become a permanent resident.
