Francesca Recommends a Book

Filed under: Books,Uncategorized — Francesca @ 9:02 am

Being European, Francesca does not have any family members who have died fighting for America.

However, she very much appreciates America and the opportunities it has afforded her, and therefore appreciates the bravery of those who have fought for it.

Francesca is spending her Memorial Day Weekend curled up with John Updike’s Gertrude and Claudius, a fun little novel which anyone can enjoy whether they have studied  Hamlet or not (but especially if they have). It is the “prequel” of Hamlet, told from Gertrude’s point of view. Francesca is enjoying it very much.

May you all have a meaningful holiday, full of gratitude for those who made it possible.


  1. I loved that little book! Brilliant, especially the end. Enjoy!

  2. While Updike is a brilliant writer, his body of work clearly declares him a misogynist. . One an author I expect to see endorsed by our beloved Francesca.

  3. Oops

    Not an author I expect to see endorsed by Francesca.
