    Dust Bowl: The Southern Plains in the 1930s - Donald Worster - Google Books

  • R.C. Pugh Library

    In the mid 1930s, North America's Great Plains faced one of the worst man-made environmental disasters in world history. Donald Worster's classic chronicle of the devastating years between 1929 and 1939 tells the story of the Dust Bowl in ecological as well as human terms.

This is one of the best non-fiction books I have read in a long time. The subject is the Dust Bowl and I highly recommend it.

Swamplandia! by Karen Russell - Swamplandia! is about the Bigtree family who owns an alligator-themed park on an island in the Everglades of Florida. After Hilola Bigtree (who performs the main act of swimming with the alligators) dies, and a new theme park on the world ending comes to the mainland, Swamplandia! is in trouble. . . and so are the individuals of the family!

This collection is definitely not his best work and way too dark for my taste. I didn't even finish about a third of the essays because I just couldn't bear to keep reading. Included here are a handful of fictional narratives from someone else's point of view, and I hated every one. (Soooo dark. No thanks.) In my mind, nothing since Me Talk Pretty One Day has been half as funny.

I began reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao last night. It is going to be very good, however, I am going to need to use a Spanish-English dictionary to help me with the Spanish sentences.
