Goal #3 of Reading More Broadly — I’ve finished Andrew O’Hagan‘s Be Near Me. It only counts as a bonus (as it is largely set in England & Scotland — I’ll add this pin to Scotland) for my Where Are You Reading Challenge? but it still counts fully toward the Support Your Public Library Challenge. If you want to contemplate solitude, and the ways we respond when we are lonely, disenchanted, or adrift, you’ll enjoy this book. My flavor of Catholicism is different, so some of those pieces dragged for me.
