Favorite Books of 2006

Critical Mass, the blog of the National Book Critics Circle board of directors, lists its members' favorite books of 2006. Critic Bruce Allen talks about his:

"The one book of 2006 that I would urge readers not to miss is Edward P. Jones's second short story collection All Aunt Hagar's Children. It's easy to lose track of Jones, who publishes so infrequently. But his first collection Lost in the City and Pulitzer-winning novel The Known World are genuine classics: richly detailed, brilliantly imagined explorations of Afro-American life, both as history and as images of the here and now, that are unsurpassed in our fiction."

When I was in Oxford, England, visiting my daughter who was studying there, I looked up into the beams of Merton Chapel and there was a face peering down at me. It was a face with leaves sprouting as hair, vines and tendrils springing from his mouth and nose. I had come to face to with an ancient carving of a Greenman. Greenman have been found in churches in the British Isles since the 12th century and they've been in existence in different forms in many countries for much longer than that.

My musings turned into a poem, The Greenman, which was published in several journals and anthologies.
