What I’m reading right now

 

Poetry: “Letters to Wendy’s,” by Joe Wenderoth

The author collects his wide-ranging ruminations inspired by the fast-food eatery. Funny, inspiring and yet quite dirty.

Nonfiction: “The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming,” by Henri J.M.  Nouwen

This is the author’s insights after viewing the Rembrandt painting referred to in the title. In the painting’s finest details, Nouwen maps out a journey to God — the wayward son who returns repentant to his father, the resentful elder son who cannot grasp the fullness of his father’s love, and the father who loves regardless of his son’s shortcomings.
