I used to knit on my commute to and from work, but have not done so for that past few years. Instead, I read.
I go through quite a few books each month and am always on the lookout for a new author. And I just found one, in a knitter I’ve known online, and have met in real life. I just finished reading her book:
This is Remembering the Way by Greta Beekhuis. It’s a story about a medical research scientist who one day decides to take a different turn in his life, and we see where this takes him, in both expected and unexpected directions. It’s written in the first person, from his point of view and was a fascinating look into another person’s mind, to see the routines and methods and ways of thinking he uses to cope with the world. But not only is it a peek into the mind of a person who processes life experiences differently than most people, it’s a lovely story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. And I took comfort in recognizing some of the mechanisms that I use to cope with everyday life present in some of the ways the protagonist Larry copes with life.
Anyway, I highly recommend this book. You can purchase from Amazon at the link above — it’s available in both paperback and kindle edition.
Or you can win a copy.
