I like her writing.
This week I only finished one book, but it was a good one. And the Pursuit of Happiness by Maira Kalman.
I often check out books from the library, read them, and return them. Even when I buy books, I usually give them away.
I buy Maira Kalman books and keep them. I read them and then I read them again.
She writes children's picture books as well as grownup books. Honestly, her books for grownups are really just grownup picture books.
A new genre, maybe.
I hope this is okay, but I can't really show you how wonderful Maira Kalman is without showing you a few pages from her books.
I saw Maira Kalman at the Texas Book Festival. I would have been very sad if I had not gotten to hear her speak. She was not as I'd imagined. I'd expected a morose person. No. She actually laughed a lot. And told funny stories.
She seemed quite wise.
"Reality was never part of our household," she said.
